During his round at the British Open today, Sergio Garcia whacked his club into some bushes after hitting a shot he was not happy with on the fourth hole. He should not have done that, because he ended up hurting his shoulder.
The Washington Post’s Dan Steinberg draws our attention to a section of the NFL’s official online store, in which fans can buy novelty license plates in order to express pride in their home state and their team. The Skins’ version of the plate is above, and as you can see, that’s, uh, Washington state. The Skins play…
Adrian Wojnarowski did not report that LeBron James plans to opt out in 2018 and create a super-team in Los Angeles; “WojVertioalNBA” did. Around the Horn didn’t catch the faux Woj before the tweet aired, though, so the panel debated whether James would actually execute this not-actually-reported plan.
There’s a reason the referee tells fighters to “protect yourselves at all times.”

The Mets’ Neil Walker hit one down the left-field line in the eighth inning of Monday’s game against Arizona. The ball boy got out of the way. The security guard? Well, he just stood there and casually rolled the ball to Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomás. It’s nice to help.
Soccer is hard. There are so many other people on the field: teammates, referees, opponents, occasionally the odd dog. One can be forgiven for the occasional lapse. However, this howler from Ottawa Fury FC goalkeeper Callum Irving is a transcendent fuckup.
The same day Tony Romo announced that he was retiring from the NFL to pursue a career in broadcasting, ESPN sent a cute tweet:
Theo Epstein and his brother Paul run the charity Foundation To Be Named Later, and every year, they host a benefit concert called Hot Stove Cool Music. Since Epstein’s Cubs came to Boston last week to play the Red Sox, the brothers hosted a show headlined by Eddie Vedder, and Theo brought both the Sox’s 2004 World…
Here is an unfortunate and incorrect headline that ran on an AP blurb in today’s edition of the Brandon (Manitoba) Sun. Keith Hernandez is alive and well and part of the best broadcast booth in baseball. Aaron Hernandez is still dead.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are scheduled to unveil their new logo during halftime of tonight’s game against the Thunder. However, the logo was leaked this morning after a Reddit user was served an ad on the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s website.
Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams manned left field for the Redbirds today after Stephen Piscotty was absolutely battered with baseballs Tuesday night. Adams caught a few flies earlier this week during his first outfield stint, but the experiment took a turn for the worse when Anthony Rizzo hit a ball his way.
Who’s ready for #TealTuesday in Arizona??? These guys!!!
Early in the second half of Stoke City’s match against Burnley, the Potters’ Charlie Adam stepped up to take a corner and ... it did not go well.
South African Premier League player Mohammed Anas told on himself last week, when he thanked his wife and his girlfriend in a postgame interview. He has since tried to explain himself, and he didn’t do a very good job.
In the World Baseball Classic semifinal between Puerto Rico and the Netherlands, Dutchman Jurickson Profar got ahead of himself while celebrating a first-inning single to right field. Puerto Rico’s right fielder threw a rocket to catcher Yadier Molina to hold up the runner at third, and then, as Profar was…
The South African Premier League’s Mohammed Anas won Man of the Match for his two goals in yesterday’s Free State-Cape Town game. Good stuff! Except for his acceptance speech, in which he thanked both his wife and girlfriend (before backtracking to assure his wife that, really, he loves her so much).
