Here's a lengthy excerpt of ABC Wide World of Sports as aired on WLS Channel 7, spotlighting a (mostly complete) appearance by the Harlem Globetrotters at their training camp in the Barnes Field House at Fort Huachuca in Sierra Vista, AZ, playing against the New Jersey Reds.  The play-by-play for this game, such as it was, was called by Howard Cosell.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A Florida man playing with his dog at a north Florida park was horrified when a large alligator attacked his pet, dragged it into the water and ate it earlier this month, wildlife officials said.
Joshua Wells, 44, said he was playing a game of fetch with his unleashed dog, Toby, a 40-pound black Labrador retriever mix, near water at the J.R. Alford Greenway Trail in Tallahassee during a lunch break on June 6, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.
The dog was in the water, “standing up to his elbows,” when the 9-foot, 2-inch alligator pounced, according to an incident report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
“Boom, the water just sort of exploded,” Wells, an engineer, told the Democrat. “He never barked. He never saw it.”
Wells said he got Toby during the COVID-19 pandemic as a gift for his 3 1/2-year-old son, the newspaper.
Wells said the alligator grabbed the dog by his head.
“It took him down like it was nothing,” Wells told the Democrat.
Wells tried to grab the alligator by its legs but backed off when he saw how large it was, according to the newspaper.
“He said he quickly realized that was not a good idea and let the alligator go,” the FWC incident report stated.
FWC Officer Benjamin Johnson, who reported the incident, stayed for two hours to look for the alligator, Wells told the Democrat.
In the incident report, Johnson found a 6-foot, 6-inch alligator, along with the reptile that attacked Wells’ dog. The dog’s body was floating below the surface of the water, The Associated Press reported.
Both were removed from the waterway by a Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program trapper. The larger alligator that ate Toby was euthanized, Wells told the Democrat.
The area of the attack is a popular area, particularly among children. The FWC warns that alligators can be present in any body of water in Florida.
“There’s cul-de-sacs, you’re not expecting a gator to come out and eat your dog,” Wells told the newspaper.
Johnson returned Toby’s remains to Wells, who buried it.

NYC gang steals family's $400,000 Rolls Royce Dawn convertible before the owner activates the car's tracking system and hits kill switch, leaving them stranded in New Jersey...
Thieves smashed the window to a pricey Staten Island home after spotting a $400,000 convertible Rolls-Royce Dawn sitting in the driveway. The bandits were able to easily grab the keys and drive off in the luxury car. But the owner then activated a built-in 'kill switch' when the thieves reached New Jersey. The owner was able to then collect the car in-person using GPS tracking. The theft is one of a string of car thefts in the New York borough this month.

About the 2021 Rolls-Royce Dawn

A 563-hp twin-turbocharged V-12 engine provides quick acceleration, making the Dawn as fleet as it is sexy. At the test track, the Dawn rushed to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. but the Dawn is happiest when it's quietly cruising, as its suspension is tuned exclusively for comfort.
Holding steady for another model year, the Dawn rolls into 2021 with nary a tweak to its available features or powertrain. This will be the last year for the Dawn, as Rolls-Royce plans to discontinue the Dawn and the Wraith in North America.

The cars below are not the stolen car, just for information purposes.
