The U.S. Coast Guard asked for the public's help Tuesday identifying a "hoax caller" who made six fake distress calls between May 1 and June 1.

Another day, another twist in the Ed Reed saga. On Wednesday, the Ravens safety told Comcast Sportsnet that he "always planned on playing this year." That obviously sounds like a positive development, but be warned that the Reed roller coaster hasn't yet come to a complete stop and won't until Reed reports to training camp next Wednesday. So keep your seatbelts fastened and fingers crossed that Reed's mindset won't swerve before camp begins. After all, Reed's comments have been pretty inconsistent all offseason. Here is a complete (we think) recap.
Tonight's Raw was a heck of a rebound from last week. The episode brilliantly mixed quality in-ring action with solid story advancement. I was worried WWE may have been too focused on next week's show to put a good amount of effort into tonight's show, but luckily, I was proven wrong.

When I logged onto ESPN.com Wednesday morning, I stumbled upon an article by K.C. Joyner about the AFC¿s most overrated players. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was the first player he mentioned. Joyner had a bone to pick with Flacco after his comments to a Baltimore radio station back in April, and he also had some stats to back up his criticism.
A series of unfortunate circumstances -- Alberto Del Rio's concussion, Chris Jericho's suspension, Randy Orton's wellness policy violation -- created an opportunity for Dolph Ziggler to rise through the WWE ranks.
In the wake of John Laurinaitis' ousting as general manager and executive vice president of talent relations, though, it seems a few more faces from the past may be making appearances. Tonight's show opened with Mick Foley coming to the ring to announce he would be guest hosting Raw and Smackdown this week, as the Board of Directors has been reaching out to past authority figures while searching for a new one.
Several organizations at Aberdeen Proving Ground are focused on stopping the signature weapon of the enemy in Afghanistan and Iraq: the Improvised Explosive Device, responsible for more than half the U.S. deaths in those two countries over the past decade.
