When Position Players Take the Mound

Yankees backup infielder Brendan Ryan pitched two scoreless innings in his first major league appearance on the mound. Granted it was during a 15-1 loss, but at least he was effective.

Marshawn Lynch, U.S. President

Don't laugh. Lynch is one of the handful of athletes whose names are among the 867 who have filed for president under the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Imagine what his State of the Union addresses would be like.
