Keith Hernandez shaves his famous mustache for charity (Pictures)

Keith Hernandez is officially naked. On Thursday morning, the Mets legend made an incredible sacrifice when he said goodbye to something that has been a part of him for 25 years — his mustache.

Kevin Love threw 90 mph as ninth-grader in high school

Your browser does not support iframes. Kevin Love threw out the first pitch before Wednesday’s Yankees-Twins game, and the 6’10″ NBA All-Star looked pretty intimidating bringing the heat during warmups.

Various fans in Seattle on Monday went through the range of emotions in the final moments of a three-hour game: the familiar nausea, the hand-wringing, and probably a little bit of the cold sweats.
