Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you post-steroids Barry Bonds.
The Fresno Grizzlies, the Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, will sport Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles inspired uniforms during a game this season. Fans will be given the opportunity to vote as to which turtle’s color the team will wear.
Me? I’m totally a Raphael red guy.

Kelly Hall, the girlfriend of Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, allowed us to live vicariously through her and her friends as they took a cruise to much warmer destinations.
Consider this free direct flight to Instagram, which I hear is a lovely vacation destination all year round.

Watch the video as Harrison...

via btn.com Senior Night was already set to be a memorable night for Nebraska Cornhuskers guard Mike Peltz. But playing in his last game at Pinnacle Bank Arena wasn’t enough, Peltz also proposed to his girlfriend Shelby Campbell during pre-game festivities. Peltz, a seldom-used guard, averaged 4.9 minutes and 0.1 points in the 11 games he appeared in this season. Nebraska head...
Now you don’t have to wonder whether Tampa Bay Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey was holding his own clipboard or someone else’s. It’s clearly labeled.

YouTube I’m not a doctor, but since I stayed at Holiday Inn Express last night, I know that Chris Stewart’s knee shouldn’t have bent like this after Lightning goalie Anders Lindback took him out. Stewart was helped off the ice and wasn’t able to put weight on his right leg. I’d guess he’ll be sidelined for some time with the hockey-famous LBI. The hit/injury comes...
With just over a minute to go in Thursday’s Senior Night game against Iowa, Tom Izzo called for Keith Appling to throw the ball out of bounds. You don’t have to be a pro lip reader to see him say, “throw it out of bounds.”
Not wanting to commit a turnover (what?), Appling handed it to sophomore Denzel Valentine. Despite being iffy at first, Valentine compiled...

So Nick Lidstrom, quite possibly the best defenseman ever to play hockey, had his number retired by the Red Wings Thursday night. People in Detroit have heard people call in Nick LiNdstrom. But I’ve never heard him be called Steve Yzerman. Yzerman’s number was raised to the Joe Louis Arena rafters in JANUARY OF 2007. For the amount we pay for cable, they need to do better.
A weird scene occurred during the Hawaii-University of Cal Santa Barbara Thursday night when Hawaii coach Gib Arnold was given a technical foul midway through the first half. Unprovoked, a UCSB fan run on to the floor in Arnold’s direction. He didn’t make it as you can see the Hawaii players push him away. Why was he there? Who knows? Should he be allowed back into a...
During their 2014 calendar shoot aboard the Celebrity Reflection in Puerto Rico, St. Thomas & St. Maarten, the Toronto Argonauts cheerleaders lip synced and shook themselves to Nikki Minaj’s “Starships”.
This is a trend I will never get sick of – no matter how bad the music is.
The Pistons were useless against Joakim Noah Wednesday as he recorded his second triple-double in the last three games. But Pistons mascot Hooper had the last laugh. Ten points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and negative 15 dickens for Noah has he lost them all in The Palace hallway after the game.

Instagram Nevada’s Deonte Burton saw your other Dunk of the Year candidates and went all-in Wednesday night against Boise State. This isn’t even fair. Science was defied on this dunk. Everything was defied on this dunk, especially Boise State defender Ryan Watkins.
On Thursday night, Adreian Payne will join his fellow Michigan State basketball teammates for Senior Night. Joining Payne on the floor will be Lacey Holsworth, an eight-year old fighting for her life trying to fend off cancer.

The Detroit Tigers have taken a cue from their Triple-A affiliate Toledo Mud Hens and are blowing hot air under a tarp that covers the frozen field at Comerica Park.
The only difference between the setup at Comerica Park and that of Toledo’s Fifth Third Park is that there currently is no field in Detroit. As part of their agreement with the NHL for...
Linda Cohn worked her tail off, but Ken Griffey, Jr. wanted absolutely nothing to do with this interview Wednesday afternoon. Griffey appeared on SportsCenter in a promo spot for Upper Deck. To her credit, Cohn brought the energy from the word go. To nobody’s credit, Griffey came off like a wet napkin. A wet napkin with chicken wing sauce all over it. A wet napkin...

Even Twitter is eating out of Verlander’s right hand. On Monday, JV took to the masses with a plea to get his brother Ben, a Tigers minor leaguer who’s in spring training with the big...
Daniel Alfredsson’s teeth were on the receiving end of a careless high stick from Andrei Loktionov Tuesday night. When all was said and done, Alfredsson was picking his chicklets up off the Prudential Center ice surface.

Jake and his grounds crew have created a temporary ‘hot zone dome’ by using the rain tarp, putting...
This Stony Brook University superfan is unaware that life is often about first impressions. My first impression of him makes me want to kick him in the teeth. During Sunday’s game against Albany said superfan lost it behind the ESPN commentators.
Ahh yes, putting his parents’ money to good use. I can’t wait to see Stony Brook make a run in the America East tournament...
