Scenes From the 2016 Wife-Carrying Championship
Congrats to Elliot and Giana Storey of Westbrook, Maine, who won first place in the 17th annual North American Wife-Carrying Championship in Newry, Maine. The Storeys completed the 278-yard course in just under a minute to claim the grand prize of Goose Island Octoberfest beer (11 cases) and five times Giana’s weight in cash ($665). And they're not done—the couple will compete in the World Wife-Carrying Championship in Finland next summer.
David Ortiz's career is over after the Indians won a close Game 3 to sweep the Red Sox. Ortiz had an emotional goodbye on the Fenway Park pitcher's mound while Pedro Martinez managed to insult all Native Americans during the TBS pregame show (and apologized after). Meanwhile in San Francisco, Joe Panik hit a walk-off double to keep the Giants' playoff hopes alive against the Cubs. Somehow Jake Arrieta hit a three-run bomb off Madison Bumgarner but it wasn't enough for the Cubs.

Odds & Ends
LeBron James does not like stray laundry in the locker room ... Jim Harbaugh is going to Ruth's Chris in Ann Arbor to take advantage of their great deal on steak ... Parents and kids in matching Halloween costumes are all the rage this year ... Guessing this Dodgers fan regrets his "eat everything at Dodger Stadium" bet ... The Robert De Niro-Jon Voight feud is heating up ... A tortoise raced a hare in Thailand ... I've never loved Anne V as much as in this gallery of SI Swimsuit selfies.
It Was All Staged!
Remember that great/awkward moment when Sacramento owner Vivek Ranadive called Nik Stauskas to tell him the Kings were drafting him? It was all staged. Damn you, ESPN!
