Another MLB player injured while celebrating; Galinka Mirgaeva is Fox-y
It seems that players are getting hurt while celebrating more and more in sports. The latest victim of this trend is Dodgers catcher A.J.

He injured the ankle while stepping on the mask of fellow catcher Drew Butera.
GO GET 'EM, JOHNNY!
If you checked basically any sports site over the holiday weekend, you know that Johnny Manziel was in Las Vegas because there were lots of pictures taken. This had some people freaking out because apparently if you go away for a couple of days, you don't care about your job. They also fail to realize that Manziel isn't doing anything new, but everything today is caught on camera and put on the Internet. Manziel responded to the naysayers Monday night on Instagram by posting this photo with the caption, "Guess it's impossible to enjoy the weekend and study?"
WHEN TRASH TALKING GOES HORRIBLY WRONG
On Sunday, Pacers guard Lance Stephenson said LeBron James showed "a sign of weakness" when the Heat superstar barked at him during Game 3 on Saturday. Stephenson foolishly went on to say, "I'm doing something right and I'm getting under his skin." Cut to Game 4 on Monday night: James - 32 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and this dunk in Miami's 102-90 win.
