This contract wasn't worth the paper it was printed on -- in a good way

Babe Ruth's 1918 paperwork with the Boston Red Sox, which called for him to get paid $5,000, was sold in an auction Saturday night.

For $1.02 million.

NASCAR quiz

a) Riding him into the wall.

b) Driving 138 laps with his left blinker on.

Pass the belly putter

Sarah Whisonant registered her first hole-in-one at La Vista Falls in Omaha, Neb. -- while playing 8 1/2 months pregnant.

Water hazard? No kidding.

Poe, as in police

Cornerback Jimmy Smith, charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct during a bar incident, became the fifth Baltimore player arrested this off-season.

Quoth the Ravens: Any more?

High, hard one

Alex Rodriguez's lawyers filed suit to recover $380,000 in unpaid legal bills.

Party like it's 1970

No. 1 song among melancholy Miami Heat fans? "Gimme Dat Deng."

Stressing out

Miami came in seventh in CNN Money's rankings of America's most stressed cities -- and that was BEFORE LeBron blew town.

(FYI, Seattle: Robinson Cano traded in No. 1 for No. 42, not to mention $240 million.)

Cuyahoga trifecta
