Britain is abuzz Monday with the news that Kate Middleton has gone into labor and a royal baby will soon join the population. And that got us thinking, who are some of the biggest crybabies -- or royal babies, if you will -- in sports. • It's hard to start a list of royal babies without George Brett, an actual Royal baby who will forever be known as much for one hit that didn't count as the 3,154 that did: • Like Brett, John McEnroe's career will also be defined for some by his reputation as a outburst-prone baby instead of his legacy as a seven-time singles Grand Slam champion: • You don't just get the name "Big Baby" without being, well, a big baby every once in a while: • Terrell Owens joined this class when he got a little too emotional defending quarterback Tony Romo: • We don't need to defend our selection of Kyle Busch as NASCAR's biggest crybaby, because he did it for us in this post-race interview: • Brett Favre turned on the waterworks during one of his retirement speeches: • Dick Vermeil was an emotional coach who was known to cry every once in a while , including here, after his final game as coach of the Kansas City Chiefs: • At the college level, Adam Morrison couldn't hold back the tears after a championship loss to UCLA: • And, of course, no list of royal babies would be complete without an appearance from Tim Tebow: So congratulations to the new royal baby -- you've got quite a reputation to live up to.

And a girlfriend in Niagara Falls. • Two champions of progress, Robbie Rogers and Jason Collins pose for a photo: • Another Blue Jays loss led pitcher Mark Buehrle to wonder if his team was overrated to begin with this season. • This Arkansas supporter is no fan of LSU: @jefflongUA @PGA_JohnDaly @Budda03 @Ryan_mallett_15 thought yall might like my new tattoo I got a tiger by the tail! pic.twitter.com/7iUwJVZ1Vi -- Curtis Pinkerton (@curt5878) July 19, 2013 • Mike Brown has no hard feelings as he gets back to work with the Cleveland Cavaliers. • Dick Vitale seems to have enjoyed this John Mayer concert: Bye bye Denver -wow what memories #JOHNMAYER pic.twitter.com/6Ahbpa1MM0 -- Dick Vitale (@DickieV) July 21, 2013 • Unlike his brother Maurkice, Mike Pouncey doesn't seem particularly interested in speaking about his "Free Hernandez" hat. • Via Deadspin , this is why you don't laugh at people who flinch when a foul ball comes back at the net: • White Sox OF Alex Rios was not pleased with manager Robin Ventura after Ventura benched him, so he responded with a grand slam the next night. • An estimated 1,000 Montreal Expos fans stormed a Blue Jays-Rays game to make a statement about wanting the Expos to return. • After not scoring a single run against the Brewers this weekend, the Miami Marlins have gone 37 innings without a run -- the longest streak since 1985. • Glen Perkins corrected the Cleveland Indians when they got his name wrong on Twitter: It's Glen RT @Indians : #MNTwins and Scott Perkins hold on for a 3-2 win for the second straight night. -- Glen Perkins (@glen_perkins) July 21, 2013 • Jerry Jones says the NFL is " closer than ever " to a return to Los Angeles. • The San Diego Union-Tribune has a great read on sportswriter Jill Lieber Steeg. • The A-Rod saga drags on . • The Stanley Cup went water skiing this weekend: Jonathan Toews enjoying the cottage life (Kenora, ON) #stanleycup #blackhawks @nhl @HockeyHallFame pic.twitter.com/hZiFImptkz -- Philip Pritchard (@keeperofthecup) July 20, 2013 • Gal Mekel's journey has taken him from Israel to the Dallas Mavericks . • No big deal, just Charl Schwartzel driving a 450-yard green:
