The 20 Worst NHL Jerseys Ever
Last Thursday, the Phoenix Coyotes went all #TBT and wore the original jerseys from their inaugural season of 1996-97. This inspired our photo editors to compile the 20 ugliest NHL jerseys of all time -- a list that (for some reason) doesn't include those original Coyotes threads.
Hockey Team Plays in Selfie Jersey
The Columbus Cottonmouths of the Southern Professional Hockey League played their game against Pensacola on Saturday in jerseys made up of fan selfies. Over the past three months, the team has encouraged fans to submit selfies (with the hashtag #snakeselfie), which they used for the uniform. I love this idea (even if it's been done before) and it's my second favorite minor league promotion of the year (after Saved by the Bell Night in June). Also, the Columbus Cottonmouths may be my favorite team name in sports right now.
Yasiel Puig Becomes His Own Bobblehead
A Dodgers fan brought an enormous Yasiel Puig bobblehead to spring training and the Dodgers outfielder couldn't resist trying it on. The bobblehead then made an appearance in the stands, as you can see in the video below.

Help the Eagles Cut Riley Cooper
An angry Eagles fan set up a GoFundMe page to help raise enough money to support Riley Cooper's release. The receiver is due to make $6.2 million this year unless he is cut "with the post-June 1 designation" (I have no idea what that means either). As of this writing (2:59 p.m.), they haven't raised anything.

Spanish Basketball League Brawl
A crazy brawl breaks out during a game between Saski Baskonia and Bilboa Basket. Stay until the end when a player helps comfort a petrified child.
I really shouldn't laugh at this elderly woman crashing into a China cabinet while playing ping-pong but I can't stop laughing. I am not a good person. (H/T FTW)
