Ryan Kerrigan sacks Manziel and Orakpo celebrates with the "money" sign #CLEvsWAS pic.twitter.com/boQ7oAv5Tl — NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) August 19, 2014 It’s the problem with having a “signature” celebration.

Here’s Taylor Swift Trying To Rap In New Single “Shake It Off”

I don’t think Nicki Minaj is shaking in her boots or anything. Just let it be known that Taylor Swift seems to be fully embracing the pop music “mandatory but totally unnecessary” rap bridge formula as well.

Who Bat Flips After a Walk? David Ortiz Does

The Angels C.J. Wilson walked David Ortiz on a full count in the 1st inning with no men on base. The average ballplayer would simply toss his bat toward the unassuming bat boy and wiggle to his free base. David Ortiz is not your average ballplayer and therefore does what he pleases. He proceeded to give the most exuberant bat flip in the non-existent history of walk bat flips: David...
