Patch, the one-eyed thoroughbred racing in the the Kentucky Derby tomorrow, is this year’s lovable underdog. He’s also a horrifying, part-Nazgûl-looking beast.
This afternoon, the Rangers announced that second baseman and noted face-puncher Rougned Odor had signed a six-year, $49.5 million deal to stay with the team.

Horses are the one inescapable fact of Lexington, Kentucky—home to BreyerFest, the model horse Comic-Con, an annual convention for one of the last hobbies nearly untouched by culture at large.

However, if you went to the dressage area at the Rio Olympics this afternoon to give him a carrot, you might not find him there, since he had to leave the dressage competition after a suspected bug bite left him with a “toxic fever.”

Oh, so you got a lot of gifts this year, did you Mariano Rivera? That's neat. I see you got a rocking chair made out of bats, and some other tacky crap. Really cool. But, um, did you happen to receive a goddamn horse? Oh, you didn't? Well guess who did get a horse? Todd Helton, that's who!
