Two Confused Athletes
Arizona State's Alden Derby got a little confused during last night's Holiday Bowl. Midway through the second quarter, Derby recovered a fumble off a muffed punt and instead of running into the end zone for an easy touchdown, he ran the wrong way and was quickly tackled. Meanwhile, Celtics forward Kris Humphries came thisclose to shooting at the wrong basket during Boston's game against Cleveland on Saturday.

Paying Tribute To Mack Brown
The Longhorns Marching Band paid homage to their outgoing coach by spelling out "Mack Brown" during the halftime show of Monday's Alamo Bowl. Also getting in on the action was team mascot Bevo, who wore a special halter with the word “MACK” inscribed instead of the usual “BEVO.”

My Second Favorite 2013 Sports Moment
Patrick Roy gets into a heated shouting match with Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau during his first game as coach of the Avalanche. No idea why I enjoyed this so much but I did.
The Price is Right Moment of the Year
That may be an overstatement since I don't watch The Price is Right, but this woman's reaction to winning a $157,000 car (the biggest prize in the show's history) is tremendous (reaction at 5:35 mark of video).
