Yawkey Baseball League Pitcher Breaks His Arm Pitching At Fenway Park

A.B. The snapping sound you hear is not the ball, the bat or anything other than pitcher Chris McDonough’ arm. And possibly the worst part, other than breaking your arm in half while pitching, is doing it on the mound at Fenway Park. This was no doubt a dream come true for McDonough and the Al Thomas A’s, until of course this happened. Get well soon Chris. H/T Barstool

Not only did the Patriots crush the Buffalo Bills 52-28, Llyod also made an incredible (and his first) touchdown catch, as pictured above. Forget sharpies, salsa dances and Gronk spikes… mid-air-smiling touchdown catches are the hot new celebrations of 2012 and beyond.
