Manuel Fernandescq, 54, told police that he was stuck for about nine hours. The business is located on Crescent Street. Police said Fernandes was transported to Brockton Hospital because of a minor injury on the back of his head. A.B. I say community service is enough of a sentence for this guy. I mean let’s face facts. Is there anything worse than having anything stuck anywhere for 9 hours? Never mind that something being your head and having it stuck under a garage door.

Aspire: Magic Johnson's channel for black families

NEW YORK (AP) -- As the crowd counted down, Magic Johnson pulled a large silver lever jutting from a box labeled "ASPiRE." With that, his new cable network went live.

Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: Dodgers make history... not in a good way
