Phillies Fan Covers Her Face in Lipstick

I don't think she's blushing.  A Philadelphia Phillies fan decided to cover her face in red lipstick in support of her team.  If she's embarrassed at least no one will be able to tell if her face is red.

This is the new red scare.

Phillies fans are notorious for their wild behavior but I've never heard any complaints in the make-up department.

I'm sorry if I've been mean to this person, I certainly wouldn't want to "smear" her image.

Check this crazy fan out here:

Prince Fielder and Mike Moustakas collide during play at first


Normally, huge hits are reserved for the world of professional football but sometimes a big collision can enter the world of baseball.

Last night's Royals/Tigers affair featured a collision between Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder and Kansas City Royals infielder Mike Moustakas.

As Mike attempted to beat a ground ball in the sixth inning, Fielder had made a play on the ball and went to record the out at first base.

Both of them arrived at exactly the same time and the below video shows what happens when Mike meets Prince:

Streaker Runs Through Cheerleaders' Routine


At a high school football game in El Dorado Hills, California, the Oak Ridge High School Cheerleaders were going through their routine when something unexpected happened.  No, nobody fell off of the top of the pyramid or anything like that.  A streaker decided to run through the field during their performance.

He's pretty fast.  Maybe they should sign him up for the team.

The cheerleaders seemed pretty unfazed by the streaker as they continued on with their routine.

Watch the clip here:



Brandon Crawford and Pablo Sandoval combine for amazing bobbling catch

Aaron Rodgers Gets Pied In the Face


Aaron Rodgers certainly wasn't doing a celebration after this interview.  While taking questions from the media, there wasn't just microphones in his face.  Packers' Fullback John Kuhn weaved through the reporters like they were the defensive line and managed to give Rodgers a face full of shaving cream (he was probably due for a shave anyways).

I wonder if Rodgers will even pass to Kuhn this season.  He better do an excellent job of blocking when it's needed.

Maybe they're just trying to get Rodgers back for all of that photo-bombing.

Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker does the "Dougie"


Back in June, New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker held a ProCamps youth football camp for some kids in Peabody, Massachusetts.

Umpire Thinks It's A Strikeout on 2 Strikes

With David Murphy up at the plate, a called strike was hurled across the plate.  Umpire Mark Carlson apparently thought it was the third strike... but it wasn't.  It was only the second, and after motioning that Murphy was down on strikes, Carlson quickly realized that no one else was treating it as such.

Though Carlson tried to play it off as if nothing happened, the announcers were quick to point his miscue.  Showing the replay.

You kiddin' me, ump?!?

Watch Carlson's call right here:

Tony Stewart throws helmet at Matt Kenseth's car after crash


Over the years, NASCAR driver Tony Stewart has been known for his volatile personality and it appears that he decided to let some anger out during Saturday's Food City 250 at Bristol.

Nearing the end of the race, Stewart and fellow driver Matt Kenseth were neck and neck competing for first place when a crash caused both of them to spin into a wall.

As you would figure, Tony didn't exactly approve of Kenseth wrecking him and as Matt came out of pit row, Tony decided to throw his helmet at Matt's windshield:

Houston Astros have epic fielding disaster against New York Mets


This season for the Houston Astros hasn't exactly been the greatest and that statement might even be an understatement.

During Saturday's game against the New York Mets, the Astros somehow bungled an easy out into a earned run for the Mets.

Watch as Astros catcher Jason Castro and pitcher Fernando Abad nearly collided on a ground ball that gave Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey an RBI:

Prince Fielder slides past second base, gets tagged out


To note, Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder isn't exactly fleet of foot but you would at least think that he able to slide into second base properly.

During Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Angels, Fielder was trying to stretch a hit in the bottom of the second inning.

Watch as Prince tries to slide into second base but ultimately slides past the bag and gets tagged out by Erick Aybar:

Ohio State football players and intern know how to Dougie


There are few dance crazes that swept this fair nation than Cali Swag District's "Dougie" dance and if you want to see how its done, all you have to do is ask Ohio State intern football coach Sean Branick to do it.

The folks over at ESPN did an All-Access show on the Ohio State football team and caught some of the players practicing the dance in the locker room.

After the players finished dancing, Branick comes in and serves them all:

Who knew that Troy Polamalu was so deep?

Cubs Fan Tries to Snag the Ball and Loses Some Scalp


Steve Bartman must be having a laugh.  A foul ball rolled to the Brewers 3rd base coach and he proceeded to throw it to the stands.  The ball didn't quite make it there and a fan tried to reach out to get it.  A fan in the front row fell head first into the dirt and actually lost part of his scalp (apparently to get his seats you need scalped tickets).

This guys maybe the second most famous Cubs fan reaching for a baseball.

Giants Catcher Thinks the Inning is Over, When It's Not


After Tim Lincecum delivered a called third strike, Hector Sanchez thought is was the third out.  Sanchez proceeded to walk to the dugout as if the inning was over.  Fortunately for Sanchez he's not the most embarrassed Giant right now (that's right, Melky).  Baseball players occasionally do this, but it's rare to see the catcher forget how many outs there are.

The whole stadium seems to have a laugh.

Marcus Stroud is Now a Personal Assistant

He was once a pro-bowl caliber defensive tackle, but now he is working as a personal assistant according to this video.  He used to play football, now he gives foot-rubs.  Watch Stroud as he tries to accomplish all of the day-to-day activities that his boss assigns to him.

It certainly looks tough.  Hopefully he can make his through the corporate ladder

Barry Zito's Pitch Rolls to the Plate



You could say that this one is a ball in the dirt.  Pitching against the Padres, Giants pitcher Barry Zito was apparently trying to throw some sort of off-speed pitch, when the ball slipped out of his hands.  Zito seemed  confused when the ball wasn't traveling straight to the plate and instead was looping in the air.

The ball landed about half-way to the plate and still somehow rolled to the catcher (it must have been an easy pitch for the catcher to block at least). 

How many MPH do you think the pitch was?  Check Zito's strange changeup here:


MLB umpire James Hoye has issues throwing ball back to pitcher


Over the weekend, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates played an extra inning affair that went nineteen innings.

Hoye's first throw to the mound went over Cruz's head and the second one needed a leaping catch from Juan to prevent in from going into the middle of the infield:

White Sox Catcher Tyler Flowers Throws Ball Backwards


With twenty-four stolen bases on the year, Kansas City Royals' shortstop Alcides Escobar, makes stealing bases look easy.  But on this play, Chicago White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers, makes it look even easier.  While trying to throw Escobar out at second, Flowers somehow manages to throw the ball backwards.  The ball probably slipped due to the rain, just as the White Sox's reign in the AL Central is beginning to slip.

Aren't you happy that I didn't make any puns on the name "Flowers"?

Check out this bizzarre play here:

Milwaukee Brewers base running blunder turns Ryan Braun hit into out


In baseball, it is usually a good thing to know where the ball is and it appears from the below clip that Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is going to do some talking with teammate Jonathan Lucroy about ball location the next time around.

In Saturday's Phillies/Brewers game, Ryan hit a deep drive in the 4th inning which Lucroy thought was a home run.

Lucroy's blunder caused an eventual issue for the Brew Crew on the basepaths and ended the inning as Braun was called out for running outside them:

Cleveland Indians pitcher Roberto Hernandez and Carlos Santana lose track of strikes


At times, you have to forgive some Major League Baseball players for losing track of the numbers of outs and balls/strikes during games.

During Wednesday night's Angels/Indians affair, Cleveland pitcher Roberto Hernandez thought that he had recorded the final out of the bottom of the second inning with a strike out of Erick Aybar.
