Best Jumbo-Sized Baseball Players

St. Thomas Bobcats pitcher Ben Ancheff has become a cult hero in the sports blog world over the past couple weeks. After all, it's not every day a 300-pound pitcher steps to the mound. With that in mind, With Leather decided to celebrate some of baseball's more rotund players. Bartolo Colon is included.

Hot Clicks Giveaway

Great grilling doesn't have to be confined to outdoors. The T-fal OptiGrill is an indoor grill with a “brain” that cooks food to your preference, perfectly (with grill-marks!). It also features a built-in cooking sensor that automatically adapts to the thickness of your food and delivers perfect ‘doneness’ from rare to well-done for seven programs: burgers, poultry, sandwiches, sausage, red meat, fish and manual. I suggest getting one today. As luck would have it, the T-fal peeps have given me four grills to give away. I will send one to the 50th, 100th, 150th and 200th person to email me (andy_gray@simail.com) the name of this morning's LLOD. Please make the subject line "T-fal OptiGrill."

Update (12:27 a.m.): Contest is closed. Winners have been notified.


For the Pro Wrestling Fans

Our intrepid pro wrestling reporter Justin Barrasso got some 1-on-1 time with Bill Goldberg, who discusses why WWE is trying to dismiss his impact on wrestling and chances of a comeback. I like this quote: "​​When I went to WCW, I told Eric Bischoff that I wasn’t going to be some dip---- who was thrown around the ring for $500 bucks a week." 


Guilty Pet Alert

The dog stuck in the refrigerator is the best thing I've seen today.

Swimming with Jellyfish

This underwater video was captured near the remote island of Palau when a man recorded his "surreal" swim through millions of jellyfish. He was able to do this safely only because the local species does not have a noticeable sting. (H/T Business Insider)
