Fifty is a nice round number, but it can't compare to the nine figures on the check Floyd Mayweather collected after beating Manny Pacquiao on Saturday. "For my team to hand me a $100 million check is remarkable," said Mayweather, whose take from the long-awaited mega-fight with Pacquiao could eventually swell to as high as $200 million once all the record-breaking revenue is counted. "Everyone's been saying for years that I was scared and I would lose," Mayweather said of five-years of finger-pointing as he and Pacquiao failed to get together. The passion's fading, Mayweather says, and only a desire to keep his word and fulfill his six-fight Showtime contract will see him fight again in September.
Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the Texas National Guard to monitor a joint U.S. Special Forces training taking place in Texas, prompting outrage from some in his own party. Since General Sam Houston executed his famous retreat to glory to defeat the superior forces of General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, Texas has been ground zero for military training.
David Goldberg, the husband of Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, has died suddenly, his brother said Saturday.

"It's with incredible shock and sadness that I'm letting our friends and family know that my amazing brother, Dave Goldberg, beloved husband of Sheryl Sandberg, father of two wonderful children, and son of Paula Goldberg, passed away suddenly last night," he wrote on Facebook.
NEW YORK (AP) — A police officer shot in the head while attempting to stop a man suspected of carrying a handgun was hospitalized in critical but stable condition Sunday and a suspect was in custody in the case, the fifth shooting of a New York City officer in as many months, officials said.
The birth of a princess on Saturday demonstrated the enduring strength of Britain's rulers, consolidating four generations of a family now more popular than ever, but cannot hide the weaknesses of an ageing institution. Queen Elizabeth II turned 89 just weeks ago and shows no sign of abdicating, even if she has stepped back a little from public duties in favour of her 66-year-old son and heir Charles, the Prince of Wales. Prince William and his wife Kate's second child will be fourth in line to the throne after Charles, William, and his first-born George -- a strong dynasty that could continue for another century. If the queen lives as long as her mother, who died aged 101, Charles would be about 80 when he finally takes the throne -- hardly the image of a young and vital monarchy.
