Saturday night's Dodgers-Rockies game was postponed thanks to inclement weather, and on Sunday morning the Denver area woke up to a coating of snow.

In order to avoid a second straight postponement, the crews got to work nice and early to clear the field.

Snow in May? Not a big surprise in Colorado. In fact, the same situation happened right around this time last year.

But it does look like one Rockies player isn't thrilled about playing in this weather.

The good news is the grounds crew got the job done and the game will go on. Even the owner came out to make sure the field was ready:

Lesson learned: Next year, the Rockies should play the second weekend of May on the road.

What's one of the best things about kids? They're incredibly honest, even when the truth is pretty harsh.

Bubba Watson experienced this firsthand when his son offered his thoughts on his dad's putting:

Maybe Caleb is just trying to give his dad advice to help him move up the Player Championships leaderboard.

Either way, we think his honesty is pretty adorable.

It's been 45 years since Bobby Orr took to the sky after scoring a Stanley Cup-winning goal in overtime against the St. Louis Blues. The Bruins defenseman's celebration became instantly recognizable -- a perfect symbol of the thrill of victory. We've compiled a list of other victory poses that immediately immortalized their subjects, in honor of Orr and his flight.

Take a look:

This could also serve as an example of "the agony of defeat" -- though Jordan is jubilant after hitting the game-winning shot in Game 5, his opponent Ehlo is absolutely despondent.

Have you ever been so happy about something that you refused to let it go? That's what happened to Dikembe Mutombo after his Nuggets beat the Sonics in a hard-fought five-game series.

One of the best parts of this photograph is the photographer immediately to the left of Ali -- he's got ringside seats to an iconic moment and unluckily happened to be on the wrong side of it. Still, what an image.

Cardale Jones appears to be enjoying the fame that comes with winning the first College Football Playoff.

The Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback attended Wednesday's Game 2 of the NBA Eastern Conference semifinal between the Chicago Bulls and his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers. And although it did result in some beef with Joakim Noah, Jones got a chance to hype up the crowd during the Cavaliers' comprehensive victory.

Jones wasn't done. Ever the active tweeter, he took to social media Thursday and:

Jones' complaint stems from running back Ezekiel Elliot's throwing out the first pitch at a St. Louis Cardinals game Tuesday.

Elliott noticed the complaints, and wasn't about to be humble.

Thirsty? Perhaps. But apparently it worked!

What's that saying everyone's using nowadays? "Real recognize real"?

Little illustrates this better than the Twitter reaction to Lionel Messi's incredible second goal Wednesday, in which the Barcelona star effectively crossed Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng to the ground -- not unlike that Stephen Curry-on-Chris Paul play -- before chipping over goalkeeper Manuel Neuer with his weaker right foot (watch it above).

Naturally, notable names in the soccer/football world loved it:

But it didn't stop there. Over in the states, some of our biggest athletes were blown away by the move:

Real recognize real indeed.

Well, unless you're a fan of the other team.
