This Has to be the Luckiest Fan Around

You’ve probably been to several ballgames throughout you’re life and never had a chance at catching a foul ball. And getting one in BP or between innings when a player tosses one in the stands doesn’t count. Nothing compares to catching an actual foul ball in a game or bailing on your girlfriend like this lame fan. Most of us have never had a crack at catching one, but this lucky fan had not one, not two, but three chances at a ball during a recent Rays game! Take a look at this video from FanHouse as shared by SI Hot Clicks as the lucky lady confuses her face for a mitt:

Let’s hope she went home immediately and bought a scratcher or two.

Two Ejected in Women’s Soccer Fight

What’s with women’s college soccer becoming so violent?  Last year we saw the hair-tugging fiasco between BYU and New Mexico, and now we’ve got two players being ejected from an Oklahoma State-Oregon soccer game for getting into a fight.  Should athletic directors being looking into getting women’s football teams to help release some of this aggression?  Quite possibly.  Check out the Oregon vs. Oklahoma state women’s soccer (cat) fight video:

At least they stayed away from the hair-pulling this time from what we can see.  Good to see they’re cleaning it up a little.

Mark Sanchez a Justin Bieber Fan?

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez may have captured the hearts of the female population in New York, but it appears Justin Bieber has captured his.  It’s one thing for Tom Brady to have the Bieber haircut.  It’s another for a grown man to like him and attend his concerts.  When Sanchez danced to “I’m Every Woman” with Bieber and Tina Fay on Saturday Night Live a while back, we could only reasonably assume he was pretending to like the song as a joke.

Apparently, that’s not the case.  According to WFAN morning host Craig Carton, via Ben Maller, Mark Sanchez attended a Justin Bieber concert at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night.

Jets QB Mark Sanchez was in the crowd to see teen heartthrob Justin Bieber’s show at Madison Square Garden last night, according to WFAN. Morning host Craig Carton “reported” that Sanchez was in the crowd at the packed arena to see the 14-year-old sing. Earlier this year the Jets quarterback danced and sang along to “I’m Every Woman,” with Tina Fey and Bieber on Saturday Night Live.

I wonder if Sanchez was the only grown man with a five o’clock shadow amongst the crowd that wasn’t there to supervise his daughter.  In fact, when I phrase it like that I kind of wonder if he looked like a perv.  Marky Mark has Bieber Fever.  Kind of has a good ring, no?

Ochocinco Plans First Touchdown Dance

Chad Ochocinco — who probably salivates at the thought of a good end zone dance more than he does at the thought of a Super Bowl ring — has already announced his plans for his first touchdown celebration.  After seeing the Batman and Robin photoshoot, I expected his first end zone dance to have something to do with his new partner.  Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than that.  Relax, it doesn’t have anything to do with “Russell the love muscle” either.  No. 85 plans on firing one of the Patriots muskets if he finds pay dirt.

First of all, I don’t see how he could pull that off.  Those rifles can’t be that easy to fire, can they?  And would one of the guys who works at the Pats games and does the firing just hand him their gun?  I highly doubt it.

Second order of business: I’ll be at this game in Foxboro.  As a Patriots fan, I must admit I’m going to be a little torn.  I never want to see the home team give up a score, but I’m anxious to see Ochocinco’s approach.  Needless to say if the Pats jump out to a big lead, I’ll be secretly rooting for an Ochocinco score.

Forest Fire Started With A Golf Club…Believe It

Originally I would have thought there was only one way a golfer could start a forest fire, but I now realize there are two: dropping a lit stogie and smacking your club on a rock while hitting a shot from dry grass.  No, seriously.

Sports by Brooks informs us that it took 200 firefighters over seven hours to contain a 12-acre forest fire at Shady Canyon Golf Course in Irvine, California on Saturday afternoon.  Here’s what the Orange County Register reported about the blaze.

[Orange County Fire Authority Captain Greg] McKeown said the fire likely was sparked when a golfer – who knocked his golf ball into the grass that borders the fairway – struck a rock with his club trying to get the ball out of the rough.

I bet the golfer that hit the shot has never regretted missing the fairway more in his life if that is indeed what started the massive fire.  On a side note, Shady Canyon is supposedly the preferred golf course of Tiger Woods when he’s staying at home in California.  Then again, it’s awfully tough to gauge where exactly home is for Tiger these days.

Marcus Jordan Should Use His Head

Do I care that Marcus Jordan spent $35,000 at the Haze at Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas?  No.  Do I care that he’s only 19 years old and was more than likely poppin’ bottles?  No.  If that’s your idea of fun, then go for it.  Just don’t Tweet about it and make it everyone’s problem, forcing Nevada regulators to probe MGM resorts.

If Marcus wants to carry on the family tradition of having a serious gambling problem, that’s certainly his prerogative.  I’m even a fan of the girl he’s shown with in the pictures below, even if it is indeed his ex-girlfriend.  The Marcus Jordan Las Vegas pictures probably would have leaked to the public either way (see James, Lebron), but he needs to learn how to make it more of a challenge for us bloggers to get a hold of them.  Live and learn, young Airness.

Does Shaq Have a Man Crush on Tom Brady Already?

There were plenty of high profile athletes and celebrities in attendance on Saturday night at the T.D. Garden in Boston to watch James Toney embarrass himself and B.J. Penn get destroyed.  Among them were Tom Brady and Shaq.  Big Daddy Diesel signed with the Celtics less than a month ago, but it appears he’s already caught Brady fever.  He even took time out from making a ridiculous challenge to fight Hong Man Choi to Tweet his thoughts about the Patriots quarterback.  Those thoughts had nothing to do with sports.  Shocking, I know.

Sounds like a blatant man crush if you ask me.  Don’t be surprised if we see Shaq at a Pats game holding a “Will you marry me, Tom?” sign within the next few weeks.
