  • Nick Young nearly blew himself up with a firework
     
    WASHINGTON -- Prior to July 4, New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul released a PSA warning about the dangers of fireworks, in hopes of helping others avoid what happened to him. In case you forgot, Pierre-Paul lost parts of several fingers in an accident last year.
     
     
    Did Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young learn from Pierre-Paul’s mistakes and heed his warning? No, Nick Young did not.
     
     
    Needless to say, Young was very lucky. The firework in the launch tube he was holding turned sharply downward and actually bounced off the top of his head, making it the best crunch-time decision Young's head has ever made.
  • You guys, the Cubs are winning the World Series

    WASHINGTON -- Plenty of people are bullish on the Cubs this season. They’re coming off a Wild Card berth and an NLDS win over the rival Cardinals, they’re loaded with young talent, and they landed Jason Heyward, John Lackey and Ben Zobrist in free agency.

    But that’s not why they’re winning the World Series this year. No, they’re winning because of this.

    Spring Training gets to be a drag in the final weeks, with everybody itching to get the season started, but don’t tell that to these guys. They’re too busy playing with baby bears, rubbing in the fact that their lives are awesome and clearly they’re setting the stage for an inevitable title run.

    Maybe after the parade they can bring these little guys back, once they’re fully grown, and help the Bears across town.
