Wealthy, influential, and widely read pundit, author, and pop- sociology-flouter David Brooks today uses his New York Times op-ed column to announce to you, me, and everyone else around the world: he still likes the Mets. Yeah. Thought about liking the Nats, but... had to stick with the old Mets. Mmm hmm. But did he find a way to work in some pop sociology?
In the same week that a Mets game was put on hold while center fielder Angel Pagan attended to a sudden and violent onslaught of loose stools, comes yet another unusual, game-disrupting incident in a Major League outfield: Cardinals left fielder Matt Holliday had to withdraw from Monday night's game because a moth flew into his ear.
Mets centerfielder Angel Pagan delayed last night's game because he was in the bathroom pooping. Apparently Pagan "felt a rumble at the end of the fourth" and ended up spending a significant portion of the fifth shitting, while his coach screamed his name from the dugout in vain. The announcers stalled! The crowd booed! His team played miserably! (The Phillies won 10-0.) But all that is beside the point. The point: What fecal nickname of shame shall we bestow upon Angel Pagan, problematic pooper of the New York Mets?
A man attending a Texas Rangers game at Rangers Ballpark with his young son died tragically Thursday night, after tumbling 20 feet, head-first, trying to catch a foul ball tossed to him by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton.

Poor President George W. Bush! He was simply trying to enjoy his beloved Texas Rangers last night when a foul ball came screeching for his head. Bush was sitting there, gloveless, and catcher A.J. Pierzynski nearly took out the 43rd President in his failed attempt to make the catch. Everyone survived, barely.
At a Yankee game, a group of rowdy young women decide to engage in one of America's other favorite past times. You know, the one where we throw beers and punch each other.
The San Francisco baseball Giants just won the World Series! So, of course, San Francisco has decided to riot. And because San Francisco is the urban epicenter of social media technology, San Franciscans are checking in to riots on FourSquare.

Here's a mother out to embarrass her son: watch this kid cry his eyes out while watching his beloved San Diego Chargers lose 35-27 to the perennial lowly Oakland Raiders. Hey, everyone loses sometimes...but not to Oakland!
The American League Championship Series kicks off tonight, we're in the mood for baseball and there's no better baseball flick than Bull Durham. But, just because it's great doesn't mean it's perfect. A collection of its most obvious mistakes inside.
Watch as this pitcher takes a baseball to the head, courtesy of his bat weilding buddy. To add insult to injury, the batter then proceeds to ROFL. It's a perfect example of someone laughing at you, not with you.
