With all due respect to the NCAA championship game, we start today with one of the worst calls in sports history. Last night's Rays-Rangers game ended on a called strike three by home plate umpire Marty Foster that you just have to see to believe.

Michigan and Louisville gave us a great title game that was filled with tons of action and special plays. However, the highlight of the night (besides Rick Pitino revealing that he's getting a tattoo) was Pitino's reaction after the game when he thought someone shot him. I recommend watching the video first and then playing the GIF on a loop.
Terry Francona is a great manager, but his sense of direction leaves something to be desired. The new Indians skipper got lost going to the team's stadium twice yesterday. And he lives two blocks away.
Kerry, of Birmingham, Ala., says, "Jimmy, it's almost the end of Q1 of 2013 and I don't believe you've posted Natalia Velez yet....what an injustice!"
