What a day to be an athlete. San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns met a penguin Friday. So did Alex Presley, Jose Altuve and Brandon Backe from the Houston Astros. And they weren't even the same penguin. 

Torrey Smith's son was a finalist in the Gerber Baby contest

Burns went to the zoo with his family after NHL All-Star Game media day in Ohio. The Astros went to an aquarium in Texas. These penguins are 1,200 miles apart! What an adorable coincidence. 

UPDATE: 

And Buster Posey, too! Good day for penguins.
