Selfie Made Men
Look at the dapper crew in Mike Tyson's pre-race selfie at the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico, where favorite California Chrome notched the second jewel in horse racing's Triple Crown. That's Texas Tech head football coach Kliff Kingsbury playing it cool in the back next to Tom Brady. On June 7 at the Belmont Stakes, Chrome will become the lucky number 13th horse to try for the Triple Crown since since Affirmed won the elusive honor in 1978.
You'll find a few more interesting Preakness photos in the gallery. One other horse racing note: take a look at the name of this horse that competed in a race in the lead up to the big one. Spoiler: it's Extrasexyhippzster. Someone named a horse extrasexyhippzster, the son of Extra Sexy Psychic and Freud.
Absolutely Genius Youngster at Rangers Game Hands Ball to Cute Girl
There's more, and you should really go watch it. The kid, who already had a ball in his non-glove hand, caught a foul ball. Immediately he turned to a trio of girls about, oh, eight to 10 years older than him sitting in the row behind. Then he held up the ball he already had in his hand to suggest that was the one he caught, and he gave it to the girl. This kid is going places.

Cheerleader of the Week
Meet USC Song Girl Perry, a sophomore film and acting major.
Three people I'd like to have dinner with: "1. Meryl Streep – as the best living actress of our time. 2. Kristen Wiig – We could be soul mates. I just know it. 3. Pete Carroll – I think I could convince him to come back to USC!"
The talent I'd most like to have that I don't currently possess: "My father is an incredible surfer and I wish I could get out there on a board with him! I’m learning!"
If I had to watch one movie or TV Show over and over and over again: "The Bachelor/Bachelorette. I’ve never missed an episode since the very first season. No shame."
Top three items on my bucket list are: "A trip to Greece, be the featured guest on the Actor’s Studio, and ride an elephant in Thailand."

Idiotic U.S. Open Jungle Bird Guy Strikes Again, Pays a Price
You remember the guy who interrupted Bob Costas's interview with U.S. Open champ Webb Simpson? He made a run for it at Nationals Park, put his arms out to get cuffed after taking a practice cut, then got headlock-chokeslammed by security. Jungle Bird Man definitely uses some questionable tactics to raise awareness for climate change but that slam feels like unnecessary use of force.
