Hero of the Day
Who: Diana Nyad
What Happened: Endurance swimmer Diana Nyad, who attempted to become the first person to swim between Cuba and Florida without a shark cage, was forced to abandon her effort early this morning.
Nyad, who is 61, struggled through ocean swells, shoulder pain and asthma Monday, before she was forced to give up the 103-mile swim.
Where: U.S. Market
What Happened: To be completely honest with you, the day at the stock market did not go well. The Dow was down 634 points. Which is, we have to tell you, not good. It’s actually the sixth largest one-day drop in history.
Money On My Mind
Whose Wallet: Tiger Woods
Weight: $10 million
How They Hustled: Luxury watch maker Tag Heuer ended its deal with Tiger Woods, according to Golf World, when his current contract ‘expired.’
The contract is believed to be worth more than $10 million and the Swiss firm is the sixth major sponsor to drop Woods following revelations about his personal life two years ago.
Better than Fiction
Character: Drug Smugglers
Plot Line: Three Mexican nationals in a fishing boat certainly chose the wrong place to try and smuggle drugs into the United States.
Just down the coast from where crowds were gathering to watch 10-time world champion Kelly Slater compete in the U.S Open of Surfing, they were spotted and arrested by police attempting to enter the country illegally.
