Colby Rasmus: Superhero?
New York Comic Con 2015 is in full swing and Tiffany Oshinsky was on hand to ask fans about this photo of Colby Rasmus celebrating the Astros' wild-card game victory over the Yankees. Their answers did not disappoint.
Thursday Sports Recap
The Rangers beat the Blue Jays, who lost Josh Donaldson (concussion) and Jose Bautista (cramp) to injuries. Pete Rose was not impressed with their effort. Houston beat Kansas City and a Royals grounds crew member was beat up by the tarp. In NFL news, Matt Hasselback got off his death bed to lead the Colts past the Texans, dedicated the win to a fan who lost her battle with cancer, then cried in his postgame interview. In trick play news, South Carolina State busted out the fake punt return while Washington used a double pass for a touchdown in its upset over USC. But I missed all of this because I was watching my new favorite show, The Grinder, on DVR. Be sure to watch it.
Go Sabres Go
The NHL season is underway and if you're looking for a random bandwagon to jump on, I suggest the Buffalo Sabres. Jack Eichel, who scored in his NHL debut Thursday night, is not only one of the most exciting rookies in years but also has his own burger at First Niagara Center. Most importantly, the team is using "Let Me Clear My Throat" as its goal song, which I thought would be a mistake but is kind of awesome.
Lovely Lady of the Day
Dennis from Detroit noted that I haven't featured British model Charlotte Springer since January. She is today's LLOD (click here for Charlotte's full-size gallery).
Gilbert Arenas is Excited
More details of the Matt Barnes-Derek Fisher altercation are coming out, and no one is more intrigued by the fight than Gilbert Arenas, who posted a series of Instagran videos about the brawl. Speaking of Arenas and brawls, be sure to read Caron Butler's first hand account of the Javaris Crittenton-Arenas fight that resulted in a loaded gun being pulled in the Wizards locker room.

I wanted to embed this video but couldn't find it on YouTube, so instead here's a compilation of great Kiss Cam moments.

I actually can't vote for this guy because I'm not Canadian, but if I were, he'd be my choice. Thanks to Rod in Calgary for the tip.
Happy Birthday, Jackson Browne
The guy knows how to write a song. Just ask Glen Frey.
