Mike Pelfrey did something funky with his lips (GIF)

Mike Pelfrey lipsMike Pelfrey has some weird habits on the mound. The guys licks himself incessantly and was counted licking himself 89 times during a 2011 start. And when he’s not licking himself or the ball or his hand or whatever, he’s making funny motions with his lips.

Is that how he settles himself down? It didn’t work too well during his Thursday start against the Blue Jays — he gave up 5 runs, 4 hits and 5 walks in 4.1 innings — but it sure looks awesome when played on a loop!

James Harden has a cringe-worthy terrible defense lowlight video

James HardenFew will dispute that James Harden is one of the most explosive and talented offensive guards in the NBA, but we also acknowledge that he leaves a lot to be desired defensively. To cement that point, someone created a defensive lowlights video featuring some of Harden’s worst defensive moments from the season.

In nearly every clip, you see Harden just completely losing his man on defense, which allows the opponent to get an easy bucket. Either that, or he’s just making a casual defensive stop attempt. It’s like bro, put a little effort in on the defensive end. I mean even if it’s just for show.

Yikes. As great as Harden is on the offensive end, his defense is so bad it really keeps him from being a complete overall player.

Eric Wood autographed the jockstrap a fan sent to him

eric-woodAfter being selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft, Eric Wood has played five seasons for the Buffalo Bills.

Offensive linemen generally aren’t the most popular players on the team, but they still sign more than their fair share of autographs for fans. Footballs, helmets, jerseys, and photos are a few items you would expect Wood to regularly sign his name on.

Not among the items listed above are jockstraps. But, that’s exactly what Eric Wood recently received and he obliged the fan’s request by autographing it.

Now that the foundation has been laid, Wood wants to see the bar raised.

Ok, Bills fans. Let’s see what you’ve got.

Mike Tyson throws out weak first pitch at Pirates game (Video)

Mike Tyson PiratesIt’s safe to say that Mike Tyson packs a lot more punch on his legendary uppercut than his baseball throws.

Iron Mike was in Pittsburgh Thursday to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Pirates-Brewers game. Tyson is in Pittsburgh because his promotion company, Iron Mike Promotions, is making its Showtime network debut with an April 18 Pittsburgh-area card.

He met some of the Pirates players before the game, and then he sprinted out onto the mound to throw out the first pitch, which was somewhat of a dud.

Maybe he didn’t want to hurt anyone with his throw, but we know he could have done much better than that!

Here he is meeting with some of the Buccos:

Tucker Max paid $25,000 to hang out with John Calipari

Tucker-Max-John-Calipari

A lot of people feel that John Calipari is an insufferable jerk who thinks way too highly of himself. Award-winning author Tucker Max, who has chronicled his raunchy sexual encounters with women through his best-selling book and popular website, openly admits that he is a narcissist who thinks too highly of himself. Together, they make the perfect pair.

According to Deadspin, Max participated in a silent auction last September at the John Calipari Fantasy Basketball Experience. Everything from three days of instruction from Calipari to playing ball at the UK facilities was offered. One person who attended the camp told Deadspin Max bid $25,000 for a night with Calipari that included a private jet to the Bulls-Bobcats game on Wednesday night.

“Me and @UKCoachCalipari on our way to see the Bobcats and Bulls tonight,” Max wrote on Twitter. “He travels in style pic.”

Calipari’s wife would have probably preferred if someone else was the highest bidder.

Xander Bogaerts accidentally tweeted picture of girl in a thong

Xander-Bogaerts-Red-SoxBoston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts has been billed as the next big thing in baseball. The 21-year-old Aruba native hit .269 in 12 postseason games last year, helping the Red Sox en route to a World Series championship. He’s a phenomenal fielder and a great hitter, but he needs to improve at Twitter.

After Boston beat the Chicago White Sox in extra innings on Wednesday night, Bogaerts sent out an interesting tweet.

Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin has great reaction to winning goal (GIF)

Marc BergevinIf anyone had a better reaction to the Montreal Canadiens’ game-winning goal in overtime of Game 1 in their Eastern Conference playoff series with the Tampa Bay Lightning than GM Marc Bergevin, I’m all ears.

Would you just look at the man’s right hand gyrating? I can’t tell whether that’s his “slap dat a–” motion or if he was showing us how he runs the turntables. It’s like he was in the beginning stages of a Jim Valvano reaction where he was so excited he didn’t know what to do and was just looking for someone to hug.

Below is video of Dale Weise’s goal that gave the Habs a 5-4 overtime win:
