MLB Photo Day has once again come and gone. A non-scientific survey of the resulting images suggests there’s an increase in bespectacled pitchers, which is great because they look that much funnier giving up a long home run. Here are some of the best photos to hit the wires in recent days.

There will be plenty of time tomorrow to break down the big plays and big decisions of tonight’s 41-33 Eagles Super Bowl win. For now, let’s be content to bask in the photographic record. We as a country may have finally turned a corner.
Suns guard Isaiah Canaan suffered an ankle injury in Wednesday’s game against the Mavericks, but “ankle injury” is putting it lightly. That it was immediately described with the words “Gordon Hayward-like” might provide a clue to the severity, or maybe it’s the image in which the heel of Canaan’s foot is visible…
Donald Trump, president of the United States, boards Air Force One en route to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, where he plans to tell leaders from around the world a rambling and unconvincing story involving former Night Court star Markie Post.
It wasn’t just cold at Lambeau Field. With the temperature at 13 below zero at kickoff, and the wind chill at 36 below, Dec. 31, 1967, ranked as the coldest New Year’s Eve day that Green Bay, Wisconsin, had ever witnessed.
For the long-suffering Pittsburgh Steeler fans watching the 1972 AFC playoff game, the season appeared to be over. Trailing 7-6 to the Oakland Raiders, the Steelers faced fourth and 10 from their own 40, with 22 seconds left in the game and no timeouts remaining.
At a charity exhibition match in Glasgow, Scotland today, Andy Murray played in what is apparently called a “See You Jimmy” hat, and Roger Federer put on a kilt.

Aaron Judge won the world’s adoration earlier tonight for denying manchild ballhawk Zack Hample a baseball. (It also kept the game scoreless, but who cares about those details?) Here are some more wire photos of the catch for your enjoyment:
The baseball soared into the early-morning blackness, heading toward the left-field foul pole. Tracking the flight of the ball he’d just hit, Carlton Fisk began to frantically flap his arms in an effort to will it fair.
NBA teams have taken their requisite pictures which can be disseminated in promotional materials you’ll probably throw away almost immediately, but it’s unfair to condemn the practice of making enormous people pose in dumb ways with balls, since the result is so wonderfully goofy. Here are, for one reason or another,…
The photo above shows Everton striker Wayne Rooney antagonizing the nearby Manchester City fans after he’d just scored against the home team during yesterday’s match. The keen-eyed Twitter user @Mirallas noticed that this picture bears a striking resemblance to another post-goal Rooney celebration at City’s stadium,…
Because of a perfectly placed ball to Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini and some impeccable timing by AP photographer Boris Grdanoski at the UEFA Super Cup, the world has been blessed with this holy image of the beautiful game.
Canadian rider Antoine Duchesne was one of the last cuts from Direct Energie’s Tour de France team. The team decided not to bring sprinter Brian Coquard, which made Duchesne’s role on the team somewhat unnecessary. All that training for nothing is a huge bummer, especially because Duchesne turned his legs into…
