Dominique Moceanu, a member of the 1996 Olympic gold-medal-winning US women's gymnastics team, received the biggest bombshell of her life.

As her father was dying, and weeks before she gave birth to her first child, she got a letter fro, Jen Bricker, saying that she her biological sister.

As ABC's 20/20 reported last Friday, Bricker revealed that their parents gave her up for adoption when they found out that she had no legs.

The news was equally shocking to Bricker, who grew up idolizing Moceanu, the youngest member of the US Olympic teams "Magnificent Seven."

“I wouldn’t shut up about Dominique!" said Bricker, who incredibly had no idea at the time that the gymnastics champion was her sister.

"I knew she was Romanian. I knew we looked alike. Her biggest fan!”

Amazingly, Bricker, now 24, is a gymnast too. Having no legs didn't stop her from excelling in volleyball, basketball and softball in her youth.

But, just like her sister, 30, her true passion is gymnastics. Bricker even made it all the way to the Junior Olympics as a power tumbler.

The Los Angeles Kings stormed to the first title in franchise history last night, defeating the New Jersey Devils 6-1.

And, in response, the Twitterverse, especially in Hollywood, was filled with congratulatory messages for the team that had gone 44 years without hoisting the Stanley Cup.

Among the most famous fans responding on that social network...

In the most anticipated boxing match of the year, Timothy Bradley defeated Manny Pacquiao by split decision last night - and almost everyone who watched it believes the fight was fixed.

Pacquiao landed 253 punches to 159 for Bradley, with Compubox statistics proving the former also connected on more punches in 10 of the 12 rounds.

The Associated Press had Pacquiao winning 117-111, but that service doesn't get a vote. Instead, Bradley was named the winner - by a score of 115-113 - on the scorecards of judges Duane Ford and C.J. Ross.

Boxing Sign

"I've never been as ashamed of the sport of boxing as I am tonight," said Bob Arum, who promoted both fighters, soon after the outcome was announced. I went over to Bradley before the decision and he said, `I tried hard but I couldn't beat the guy.'"

Adding fuel to the allegations of foul play? Bradley had printed out a poster for a November 10 rematch prior to this bout, something that would only occur if he defeated Pacquiao.

A consensus is building that the judges/Powers That Be in boxing arranged a Bradley victory solely to ensure another big pay-per-view buy in five months.

"I'll make a lot of money off the rematch, but this was outrageous," Arum said.

Horse racing fans will not have another Triple Crown this year.

I'll Have Another, the winner of The Kentucky Derby and The Preakness and a 4-5 favorite to take home the Belmont Stakes tomorrow and become the sport's first Triple Crown champion since 1977, has dropped out of the latter race due to a leg injury.

I'll Have Another Pic

"It's not tragic, but it's a huge disappointment," trainer Doug O'Neill said on The Dan Patrick Show.

He later confirmed at a press conference that I'll Have Another developed tendonitis in its left front leg and is officially retired. The animal will now be put out to stud, make his owner millions of dollars, sire a colt and continue the cycle of animal abuse that comprises professional horse racing.

New York Giants fan Joseph Armento was dismayed to learn that his favorite team did not keep star running back Brandon Jacobs this offseason.

The six-year-old then decided to do what he could to help.

Joseph sent a letter to Jacobs, enclosing his personal savings from his actual piggybank, totaling $3.36, in an effort to "help" the athlete, who signed as a free agent with the San Francisco 49ers in March, return to New York.

Jacobs Letter

"When he asked me why you were going to SF, I explained that the Giants did not have enough money to keep you," Joseph's mother, Julie, wrote. "Joseph is just learning to read/write so I will help you by translating his letter."

Her son's note to the football player adorably reads: "Dear Brandon Jacobs, So you could go to the Giants, here is my money. Love, Joe."

Jacobs signed a one-year deal with the 49ers that could pay up to $2 million; the Giants reportedly offered $1.5 million for his services.

Clearly "not having the money" is all relative, but the NFL star, 29, was so touched by the letter that he posted it to his Twitter account.

"I almost cried, I am still trying to hold it in," Jacobs, who won two Super Bowls, ran for 4,849 yards and scored 56 TDs in seven seasons with NY, Tweeted.

Charlie Sheen went freaking ballistic outside the Staples Center on Wednesday night after being kicked out of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, or more accurately not allowed to come back inside the arena after leaving to go have a smoke.

A female, no-nonsense security guard would not budge when the volatile actor tried to get back inside, prompting Sheen to unload on her:

"You know what? F*%king blow my balls, alright, you f*%king asshole."

As pals tried in vain to keep him away from cameras, he said, "Have common sense and common courtesy gone in society? That was what I was trying to impress upon her."

The guard, who was simply abiding by Staples Center's no re-entry policy, told a celebrity news photographer she told Sheen to "F**k off."

Charlie left the stadium without ever getting back in, ending the evening on a sour note. Not that it was without fireworks beforehand.

On his way in, a fan screamed, "You ever done bath salts?" Charlie's response: "Would you ask me that at a f*%king dinner party you moron? Go f*%k yourself."

After another fan screamed, "Charlie, f*%k all the hos tonight!!!!" Sheen replied, "I thought your mother and sister weren't available."

Sheen claims he was never winning ... but with that zinger, we disagree.

Wade Davis, a former NFL defensive back for the Tennessee Titans, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks, recently admitted that he is gay.

Throughout his career, he struggled with the fact that he was a gay man in a profession where homosexuality was almost never discussed openly.

It took years after he left the NFL before he felt comfortable enough to publicly admit that he was gay, as Amy K. Nelson of SB Nation found out.

"There was a lot that stood out from our conversation; one part that didn't make the edit was his feelings about not only struggling with his identity as a gay man, but also his identity as a black man," Nelson recalled to Yahoo Sports.

"He would wear his clothes extra large, use patterns of speech that, to him, sounded like he spoke like many of his peers. He said that he became the best actor in the world."

"He still struggles with identity, both as a black man and as a gay man. He's still trying to figure this all out, but really, aren't we all in some way?"

Davis works with kids in New York City; at the Hetrick-Martin Institute, described as a New York organization "which serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning youth," he found his personal voice.

He's also campaigning for President Obama he's hoping to help the movement.

Gisele Bundchen is pregnant with another future supermodel or NFL star!

After weeks of speculation, the Brazilian beauty and husband Tom Brady are expecting their second child together, a source confirmed to Us earlier today.

"Yes, she is pregnant," the source dished, adding that the 31-year-old is "already three months" along. "They are both really happy!" the source says. Yay!

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen Picture

The Victoria's Secret stunner reportedly begged out of the 13th annual Best Buddies Event in Hyannis Port, Mass., which Brady chaired, over the weekend.

But so far, at three months along, no Gisele Bundchen photos have shown any hint of a bump. Kate Middleton's baby bump (quote-unquote) is another story.

In a Boston park with Tom on June 1, she offered little sign of a growing belly in a loose-fitting beige top, accessorized with skin-tight pants, shades and a scarf.

The baby-to-be will join big brother Benjamin, the pair's two-year-old son.

Bundchen wed the handsome New England Patriots quarterback, 34, in April 2009; he also has a 4-year-old son, Jack, with his ex Bridget Moynahan.

This is pretty funny. After spending four hours in makeup, 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving poses as an old man and absolutely DESTROYS some playground basketball players as part of a new viral ad for Pepsi Max.

In Bloomfield, N.J., a Pepsi crew posed as documentary filmmakers taking video of a player named "Kevin." Then his "Uncle Drew" (Irving) showed up.

At the beginning, Uncle Drew embarrasses himself pretty badly, but it turns out he's just softening up the crew for the trash talking and ass-whomping to come.

Marvel at the makeup department (and Irving's crossover) below:

High school junior Meghan Vogel was the big winner at an Ohio Division III girls state track meet on Saturday afternoon, even though she finished dead last.

With 20 meters to go in the 3,200-meter race, Vogel was about to pass Arden McMath, a sophomore from a rival school, when McMath collapsed on the track.

Rather than continue running, Vogel stopped, helped McMath to her feet, placed McMath’s arm around her shoulders and carried her across the finish line.

“Any girl on the track would have done the same for me,” Vogel told ESPN.

Vogel even made sure McMath crossed the finish line first and said she was surprised by the widespread praise she received for an act of selflessness.

“It’s strange to have people telling me that his was such a powerful act of kindness and using words like ‘humanity,’” she said after the fact.

“When I hear words like that I think of Harriet Tubman and saving people’s lives. I don’t consider myself a hero. I just did what I was supposed to do.”

Wow. If only more people approached life like Meghan. Inspiring.

The cool thing: Under the rules, a runner is automatically disqualified for helping another runner during a race, but the officials allowed McMath and Vogel’s times to remain in the results, in second-to-last and last place, respectively.
