Kristi Yamaguchi tweets ‘break a leg’ to Nancy Kerrigan

LOS ANGELES — A good luck tweet from Kristi Yamaguchi to former Olympic figure skating teammate Nancy Kerrigan is drawing online attention.

Kerrigan is competing on the current season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Yamaguchi tweeted to Kerrigan on Monday, “Can’t wait to see you grace that ballroom floor,” before adding “break a leg.”

Ahead of the 1994 Winter Olympics, Kerrigan was hit in the leg with a crowbar by a man hired by the ex-husband of fellow Team USA skater Tonya Harding.

Social media users quickly took notice of the wording and responded with memes to express disbelief at Yamaguchi’s words.

Yamaguchi’s spokeswoman says in a statement that “Kristi loves Nancy” and “no ill will was intended.”

Boston drummer Sib Hashian dies at age 67 on cruise

NASHVILLE — John “Sib” Hashian, former drummer for the arena rock band Boston, died on board a cruise ship Wednesday. He was 67.

His son, Adam Hashian, said Thursday a cause of death had not yet been determined.

Hashian was listed as one of the featured performers on the Legends of Rock Cruise, which departed from Miami on Saturday and was scheduled to visit Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.

Hashian played on Boston’s first two hit records, their self-titled debut album in 1976, featuring the hit song “More Than a Feeling,” and the 1978 followup, “Don’t Look Back.” The original band, made up of Tom Scholz, Brad Delp, Barry Goudreau, Fran Sheehan and Hashian, had one of the most successful debut records in history, selling more than 17 million copies, with the singles “Long Time” and “Peace of Mind.”

His wife, Suzanne Hashian, said in a statement arrangements would be made at a later date.

James Corden felt a ‘long way from home’ amid London attack

LOS ANGELES — James Corden took a moment to pay respects to his native London following a deadly attack there.

The British host of CBS’ “Late Late Show” said on Wednesday’s show he “felt a really long, long way from home” while watching news reports of the attack that left five people dead, including the attacker. He said he wished he could “be there with loved ones to stand alongside them.”

Corden calls London a “diverse and proud and brilliant city.”

He said if the Wednesday attack was meant to divide its residents, it will only “bring them closer together as one.”
