A tale of two first pitches; Charlotte McKinney is Fox-y
Unless you've stayed away from social media and the web since last night, you know by now that 50 Cent unleashed one of the worst first pitches in MLB history before last night's Pirates-Mets game at Citi Field. Apparently, 50 heard he had become Internet fodder because he later responded to the criticism via Instagram.
ON THE OTHER END OF THE SPECTRUM
Last week, Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez hugged a young fan, who broke down in tears. Last night, Gomez surprised the 15-year-old by leading her on the field to throw out the first pitch, which she aced.
The only thing more impressive than Russell Westbrook's 40-point, 10-assist effort in the Thunder's 105-92 win against the Spurs last night was this flop by San Antonio center Tiago Splitter.
VIDEO OF THE DAY
After the Thunder evened their series with the Spurs, the TNT postgame show featured this little girl (who earlier sang the national anthem) singing Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" while Shaq, Ernie, Kenny and Chuck bopped along.
MAYHEM IN MINNESOTA
The Twins scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Rangers, 4-3, last night. Outfielder Oswaldo Arcia celebrated by bodyslamming teammate Danny Santana. Earlier in the game, Minnesota center fielder Aaron Hicks robbed David Murphy of a home run for one of the best catches you'll ever see.
WE APPRECIATE THE HONESTY
