Red Sox fans mock Alex Rodriguez
Boston Red Sox fans taunt New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez by wearing masks of a blonde woman as he stands on deck in the second inning of a game at Fenway Park. Earlier that week, Rodriguez had been spotted at a club with a blonde, not his wife, setting off allegations about his extramarital activities. The Yankees, however, beat their long-time rival 9-5.
Gum cup on the helmet
Chicago White Sox third base coach Jeff Cox has no clue this prank has been pulled on him with a cup stuck to his helmet with gum as he delivers the starting line up before a baseball game in Chicago. Watching, and slightly amused, at his left is third base umpire D.J. Reyburn.
Tom Brady and his GQ photo
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady calls a play in the huddle during normal Tuesday practice at Patriots summer camp in Foxboro. And to poke fun of the QB, offensive lineman Matt Light tapes a page of Brady's GQ photo shoot to the back of his jersey, left. Let's be honest though, Brady is married to a super model and has four rings, so were pretty confident he was able to brush this one off, even if the magazine spread was a little bizarre.
Green Guys and the penalty box
The Green Men, two Vancouver fans, taunt Johnny Oduya #27 of the Chicago Blackhawks who took a penalty against the Vancouver Canucks during their NHL game in Vancouver. Oduya doesn't seem to be phased, probably because Chicago got the win, 5-2.
Eric Thames and some bubble gum
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Eric Thames reacts to the impressive bubble of chewing gum placed perfectly on his ball cap by teammate Henderson Alvarez during a ball game against the Baltimore Orioles. Thames was able to laugh it off and the Blue Jays were able to get the win, 9-2.
Matt Harvey and the old 'ball tied to a string'
Matt Harvey of the New York Mets teases fans with a ball tied to a string before a game against the San Francisco Giants at Citi Field. Yes, it's a little mean but also brilliant.
Kings Mascot trolls ref
The Sacramento Kings mascot Monty goofs around during a game between the Seattle Storm and the Sacramento Monarchs. What are sports if you can't have a little fun? It looks like this ref didn't find it as cute.
Phillie Phanatic loves his humor and everyone loves attention on their birthday, right? The Phanatic wished Mark Gubicza a happy birthday with a lot of popcorn as booth-buddy Victor Rojas watched during a broadcast of the Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Angels game.
Lowrie Pie Face
Not one pie, but TWO pies to the face for A's Jed Lowrie from teammate Josh Reddick while doing an interview on the field after Lowrie drove in the winning run with a single in the bottom of the 9th inning against the Houston Astros.
We wouldn't want to be the teammate who got a front seat full of popcorn from Matt Kemp before the game against the Chicago Cubs. Wonder if he's still finding those little packing peanuts in his car.
A-Rod accepts suspension
The saga is -- it seems, at least -- over. After vowing to fight until the end, Alex Rodriguez finally dropped his lawsuit and accepted his MLB-imposed ban for the 2014 season. Rodriguez reportedly was concerned about the cost of fighting MLB (about $10 million in legal fees), and also about further damaging his relationship with the sport. Now he has his eyes on a 2015 return. He will be 39 when he comes back. What will come of all of it?
A-Rod suspended for '14 season
Alex Rodriguez has been suspended for the entire 2014 season and postseason for his involvement in the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drugs scandal. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz handed down a ban for all of 2014 to the New York Yankees' third baseman, a reduction of MLB's original 211-game ban. However, Rodriguez can attend spring training due to a loophole in the suspension. Do you agree with the suspension? Have we seen the last of Alex Rodriguez?
