Michael Pineda was ejected from last night's Yankees-Red Sox game after being caught with pine tar on his neck (here's a GIF of the actual ejection). GM Brian Cashman said the team was embarrassed by the incident while former players George Brett (who knows a thing or two about pine tar) and Gabe Kapler couldn't believe how obvious Pineda was about it. Our friends at MLB Memes had the best reaction to the incident as Ed Harris was the first person I thought of.

I was all set to trash this Habs fan who snagged the stick Max Pacioretty was trying to give to a youngster after Wednesday's Montreal-Tampa Bay game. But the fan had a change of heart and gave the stick to the kid.

Raffi Torres became an internet sensation last season when CSN host Brodie Brazil tweeted a photo of the Sharks forward (and his bulging eyes) on the bench. Torresing, as it's now called, was in full effect last night when Brazil tweeted a new photo of Torres caught in the act.

It's Too Easy
Duke University is the butt of many jokes. Members of the school's track and field team lip-syncing to a One Direction song isn't helping matters.

This Doesn't Happen Very Often
Twins 1B Chris Colabello hit a two-run shot home run at the exact same time his mother (who was celebrating her birthday) was being interviewed on FSN.
