WWE voice moves to boxing

Business is about to pick up for “Good Ol’ J.R.”

Jim Ross, best known as a longtime play-by-play voice for World Wrestling Entertainment, has signed on to be a boxing announcer for CBS Sports. His debut will be March 12, the first of eight scheduled monthly events at the Downtown Las Vegas Event Center called “Knockout Night at the D.” It will be the 64-year-old’s first regular broadcasting gig since he filled in on WWE broadcasts following Jerry Lawler’s heart attack in 2012.

Ross’ catchphrases from his wrestling days can still be recited on demand by his fans — “Business is about to pick up,” “Good God almighty” and “It’s gonna be a slobberknocker” are among the most famous.

Spike Lee backs Bernie Sanders

Filmmaker Spike Lee is endorsing Bernie Sanders for president in a South Carolina radio ad.

Arguing, in Sanders’ words, that the “system is rigged,” Lee praises Sanders for not taking money from corporations in the ad. And in a reference to one of his early films, Lee says that once in the White House, Sanders “will do the right thing.”

Lee also notes that the Vermont senator participated in the march on Washington and protested segregation in Chicago public schools. Lee endorsed President Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.

Mm … doughnut wedding cake

Paramore singer Hayley Williams and New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert married Saturday in a pop-punk styled ceremony in Tennessee with the bride donning a Vera Wang gown with Doc Marten boots and a doughnut wedding cake.

The two musicians had the ceremony in Franklin, a suburb of Nashville, at the Franklin Theatre surrounded by family, friends and bandmates, according to a statement from Atlantic Records. Their three-tier cake was made by a local bakery that crafted it from 100 doughnuts.
