October weekends rule, except if you're an MLB umpire facing the wrath of two furious teams and their fan bases. Not only were the Jays pissed about the strike zone in their devastating 14-inning loss to Texas on Friday, they were befuddled by a controversial call at second base in the decisive 14th inning. But at least Prince Fielder enjoyed himself, falling out of the dugout while celebrating. In St. Louis, the Cubs offense was dominated by John Lackey, but Chicago fans were also very fussy about the strike zone. In less tense news, Baylor's 400-pound tight end LaQuan McGowan scored in their blowout over Kansas, we saw some fantastic signs from College GameDay's visit to Salt Lake City and the United State is clinging to a lead in the Presidents Cup in Korea.
Greg Hardy has yet to play a game for the Cowboys but the controversial defensive end continues to make headlines. Head coach Jason Garrett scolded him for the bizarre "guns blazin" and Gisele Bundchen remarks from earlier this week, but Hardy has yet to issue an apology or even address the dicey comments. Apparently he's too busy confronting haters and releasing a rap video that includes gunfire and strippers. Not kidding.
Team USA has found their secret mojo at the Presidents Cup: Rubbing Phil Mickelson's belly.
