Joe Theismann Gordon Hayward's Injury Gave Me Flashbacks

EXCLUSIVE

Joe Theismann says watching Gordon Hayward's leg snap during NBA's opening night took him right back to 1985 ... an eerie reminder of that fateful encounter with Lawrence Taylor.

Of course, LT snapped Theismann's leg live on "Monday Night Football" -- essentially ending Joe's career. It remains one of the most gruesome injuries of all time. 

Theismann tells TMZ Sports he really does understand Hayward's pain -- and feels terrible every time he watches a similar injury on TV.

Las Vegas Shooting Hotel Guard Opens Up About Finding Shooter

10/18/2017 7:41 AM PDT

Jesus Campos, the Mandalay Bay security guard who alerted police to the Las Vegas shooter, is speaking out for the first time about the violent encounter that left him with gunshot wounds.

Jesus opened up to Ellen DeGeneres ... detailing the harrowing moments leading up to him discovering Stephen Paddock on the 32nd floor, just as he was starting to open fire on the crowd of concertgoers below.

He thinks a loud slamming door during his routine check of the floor is what tipped off his location to Paddock, who then started shooting into the hallway -- and hit Campos in the leg.

Miraculously, Campos says he was still able to somehow get on his radio and tell his team shots had been fired. You can hear his full story on Wednesday's episode of 'Ellen.'

Elvis Presley's Co. Sued Screw Heartbreak ... You Run a Lung Disease Hotel!!!

10/16/2017 6:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Elvis Presley Enterprises runs a disease-infested hotel where the water is full of bacteria infiltrating guests' lungs ... according to a new lawsuit.

The company that runs all things Elvis has just been sued by Jennifer Walker, who says she stayed at the Guest House at Graceland this summer -- and contracted Legionnaires' disease during the vacay.

Walker says she spent a lot of time at the hotel pool and hot tub and started suffering symptoms of the chronic lung affliction -- such as coughing, difficulty breathing and loss of appetite -- and was diagnosed with Legionnaires' later that same month.

According to the suit, a county health department investigation of the hotel -- which is right next to Graceland -- found the sprinkler system tested positive for Legionnella bacteria.

There have been other deaths allegedly tied to an outbreak at the hotel, and EPE is already facing a wrongful death lawsuit.

Walker is suing for negligence and wants an unspecified amount in damages. To be clear, she is not suing Elvis' estate or the actual Graceland property.
