Albert "Nostradamus" Pujols predicted before last night's game that he'd hit two home runs and collect five RBIs, and then he went out and did just that, collecting his 500th career round-tripper in the Angels 7-2 win over the Nationals. Even more impressive: The Angels fan who caught the ball will return it to Pujols and doesn't want any money in return. Fans of the Cardinals, Pujols' former team, had a mixed reaction to the feat.

I came across this photo of Gemma Lee Farrell, Emily Sears and Jessica Cribbon at last night's Kings-Sharks game and realized I had three LLOD candidates. I'm going with Farrell since I discovered the photo on her feed, but there are worse ways to waste five minutes of your life than checking out Sears' and Cribbon's Instagram feeds.

Drake likes to be clean.

Fast forward to this morning and there are roughly 10,000 articles about Drake's big adventure with lint.

The Lakers are leaning toward keeping Mike D'Antoni as their head coach next season, which is a good excuse to bust out this 1987 shot of D'Antoni in action while a member of Italy's Tracer Milan squad. Nice legs!

This little guy is really excited about snagging a foul ball.
NBA Fight of the Night
By "NBA fight," I mean lots of pushing and no punches thrown. Though Kirk Hinrich ripping off his goggles was great.
