As it usually goes at the MLB All-Star game, Miguel Cabrera was introduced and ran on the field, high-fiving his AL teammates in the process.
Dustin Pedroia, in all of his dwarfish glory, was given special treatment, however.
Shoutout to the never-failing SB Nation for the wonderful GIF.
Any early bets on Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s wonderlic score at the NFL Draft combine?
Following the outrage over George Zimmerman’s acquittal, The Onion published a very fake story on Zimmerman winning the Florida lottery for $37 million.
Clinton-Dix bought the highly unlikely story, and tweeted the following:
Leave it to a guy named Ha Ha to provide the most humorous tweet of the day.
Don’t watch the following video unless you want to be swept off your ass to go do something.
Shaq called Houston a “little town”, and this kid was none too pleased, after of course he voiced his pleasure in having Dwight Howard in Houston.
Watch out, Shaq. This kid could scratch the hell out of your leg.
Remember those videos of guys like DeSean Jackson trying to sell their own jersey incognito? Well Matt Harvey trumped that thanks to Jimmy Fallon.
Matt Harvey patrolled the streets of New York to ask unsuspecting pedestrians about Matt Harvey, and things went splendidly.
Pro tip: If you wear a player’s jersey, know what that player looks like.
The MLB Futures game took place on Sunday prior to the All-Star break, where the best prospects in baseball competed on a national stage.
The World team had a special visitor who dressed out, looking like the starting catcher.
I would have liked to see George give a speech to the team pre-game.
While it seems like the world is against him, Aaron Hernandez most likely committing murder didn’t faze his former college teammates at the University of Florida.
Offensive linemen for the Dolphins and Steelers, Mike and Maurkice Pouncey showed support for their former, possibly serial-killing teammate by wearing these hats:
The fact that the person in the middle looks like Dane Cook made the picture even more humorous.
I thought Roddy White had the ‘Biggest Dumbass of the Last 24 Hours’ award locked up, but the Pounceys are making a strong push.
Marlins phenom pitcher Jose Fernandez didn’t get any run support on Saturday, but when Giancarlo Stanton tied the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the 9th, judging from Fernandez’s reaction you would have thought they won the World Series.
Maybe he made a bet with someone that Stanton would hit a home run. Either way, you can’t get more pumped up than he was right there.
Many athletes had instant overreactions on twitter after George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin, but Roddy White took the dumbass cake.
Are we sure Roddy didn’t take Vince Young’s wonderlic test?
Everyone’s favorite science guy took to Safeco Field last night to throw out the first pitch, wearing his iconic bow tie.
He reminds me of a turtle when he walks, which is an odd thing to notice and completely irrelevant, but I digress.
As far as first pitches go, it was actually pretty excellent, nearly reaching his intended target.
Now we just need to do something about the ghetto Bill Nye parody account on twitter. I can’t be the only person who finds it more obnoxious than funny.
The amazingly ridiculous ‘Sharknado’ premiered last night, and ESPN thought they would show some rare attention to a hockey team by tweeting the San Jose Sharks about a name change.
The Sharks’ social media team took advantage of the national spotlight, and responded to ESPN in grand fashion.
Well done, intern. Teams with witty twitter accounts are just the best.
Oh, and here’s the trailer for Sharknado, in all of its chainsaw-wielding, shark-hurling glory.
