Caroline Wozniacki got her racket stuck in her hair (GIF)

Caroline Wozniacki made it very difficult to have a “long hair, don’t care” outlook on Wednesday when her tennis racket got stuck in her hair during her match against Alaiksandra Sasnovich.

Wozniacki missed a return when her hair got tangled in the racket as she was going for a backhand. Despite losing the point, she beat Sasnovich 6-3, 6-4 to advance to the third round of the US Open.

Since Woz won, we can all laugh about the unfortunate and unlikely turn of events. Imagine if her own hair caused her to lose a match? Now that would have been a story.

Eli Manning’s ‘Manning Face’ appears in Madden 15

Eli Manning face Madden

It’s truly incredible how realistic video games are getting these days.

Madden 15 dropped on Tuesday and EA Sports’ Madden Twitter account has been retweeting some of the awesome finds by game players. One of the best finds has to be Eli Manning making the infamous “Manning Face” in the game.

How awesome is that? I mean that is the exact face Eli makes when he gets crossed up with a receiver and throws his third pick of the game.

How did they nail that? Did they dress Eli up in one of those body suits and record every one of his facial movements? That was incredible.

Another cool realistic aspect of the game — players being checked for concussions on the sidelines:

Despite all the great advancements, a few glitches have been discovered …

That dude went flying like it was Spike going up against one of the “Little Giants.” I’m guessing that wasn’t supposed to be in the game.

Floyd Mayweather welcomes Warren Buffett to The Money Team

Floyd-Mayweather-Warren-Buffett

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Warren Buffett probably don’t have a lot in common, but we know they can certainly relate to one another when it comes to wealth. On Tuesday night, the two incredibly rich men got together to discuss finances.

“I had a great meeting with the $66.9 billion dollar man, Mr. Warren Buffett,” Mayweather wrote on Instagram. “We talked about how we could turn a $100 million of my assets to $1 billion. Mr. Warren Buffett is the original founder of The Money Team, he’s just one of my billionaire buddies.”

Buffett, 83, is the most successful investor in the world. We spend so much time talking about how ridiculously wealthy Mayweather is that we forget there are people out there who dwarf his net worth. Floyd’s estimated net worth of about $300 million is roughly 1/200th of Buffett’s $60 billion-plus.

Mayweather is right. Buffett is the original founder of The Money Team, even if he doesn’t own one of these.

Astros fan spikes terrible first pitch (Video)

Is it just me, or has this been one of the worst years for ceremonial first pitches that Major League Baseball has ever seen? A Houston Astros fan may have topped them all on Tuesday night.

As you can see, the young lady spiked the ball directly into the ground. She obviously just couldn’t get her fingers to let go of their grasp on the ball, and the end result was a pitch that was almost as bad as the underhand toss we saw from Miss Texas earlier this month.

Unlike Bob Costas, the Astros fan didn’t ask for a second chance. She took her lumps and went to retrieve her souvenir before accepting a much-needed hug from Astros mascot Orbit. At least she went down gracefully.

Michael Jordan loved Roger Federer’s tweener shot at US Open (Video)

Michael Jordan US Open

Michael Jordan was at Flushing on Tuesday to take in Roger Federer’s first-round match at the US Open and build some hype for the tennis player’s new shoe.

It’s safe to say that MJ was enjoying the show.

At one point in the second set, Federer ran down a lob from Marinko Matosevic which landed out. Matosevic turned his back after the ball landed out, but Federer didn’t stop. He hit a tweener return that actually nailed Matosevic in the back, leaving Jordan and many others laughing.

Federer’s new shoe is the Nike Zoom Vapor x Air Jordan 3, which was released on Tuesday. The shoe marks the collaboration of arguably the two greatest players in the history of their respective sports.

“It’s just amazing having Michael here. Michael was my hero of all sports. Having him here is unbelievably special. The collaboration is unique, so I love it,” said Federer in an interview after his match.

Here’s Jordan giving an interview during the match where he talked about working with Federer on the shoe:

Tennessee uses Beyonce photoshop to recruit Shy Tuttle

Tennessee-Shy-Tuttle-recruit

Shy Tuttle is one of the top-ranked defensive tackles in the class of 2015, and Tennessee would really like for the 6-foot-3, 310-pounder to call himself a Volunteer. In an attempt to separate themselves from the rest of the powerhouse schools that are trying to woo Tuttle, Tennessee coaches decided to use Beyonce as a prop.

“They snapped with this one,” Tuttle wrote on Twitter with a bunch of smiley faces along with the photo you see above.

Tennessee even included a bunch of phony headlines like “Beyonce on why she thinks Tuttle belongs at Tennessee.” The Vols coaches pulled out all the stops.

Hey, it’s better than sending someone 53 recruiting letters in a single day. That practice is played out and unoriginal. Tennessee is battling with other major programs like Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Miami and Michigan, so they had to do something to make an impression. Tuttle certainly isn’t going to forget the Vols’ pitch to him.

Bucknell football team has hilarious roster headshots

Bucknell-mustache

The Bucknell football team absolutely killed the headshot game this season. Apparently the members of the Bison roster decided that they were going to put a ton of effort into photo day, and the results were incredible. It was an absolute frenzy of facial hair and fantastic haircuts.

For starters, we had a group of students who dominated the mustache scene:
