Geriatric All-Stars

It was a great weekend for old people doing sporty things. On Saturday, 108-year-old Mariners fan Evelyn Jones became the oldest person to throw out a first pitch when she fired a strike to Felix Hernandez. Jones's record overshadowed 104-year-old Orioles fan Cora Purcell (who threw out the first pitch before Saturday's game against the Nats) and Babe Ruth's 98-year-old daughter Julia Ruth Stevens (who threw out the first pitch before Sunday's Red Sox-Yankees game). To top it off, NBC Nightly News featured the Albuquerque Cruisin' Big Dogs, a badass basketball team made up of women in their 80s and 90s. 

What is Wrong With You?

Have you read the details about the arrest of Bills offensive line coach Aaron Kromer? Three young boys were fishing at a beach in Florida when Kromer started yelling at them about the chairs they were using. Kromer then grabbed their fishing pole, threw it into the water, pushed one of the boys to the ground and punched him in the face.​ He then allegedly told one of the boys that he'd kill his family if he reported the incident to the police. In today's MMQB, Peter King said the incident is "very unlike the Kromer I know." Expect a swift ruling by King Goodell as soon as the facts are sorted out.

"Karate Hottie" Wins Again

Michelle Waterson (a.k.a. The Karate Hottie) made her UFC debut on Sunday and defeated Angela Mangena via a third-round tapout. Since you're wondering, this is how Waterson earned her nickname.

I'm long overdue for a one-name model. With that in mind, here's model Ruz of Mexico. She earns today's honors (click here for full-size gallery).

Prison Break

Nothing to do with sports, but Joaquin (El Chapo) Guzman escaped from a maximum security Mexican prison through a 1.5-kilometer (1 mile) tunnel from a small opening in the shower area of his cell. The opening then connected with a tunnel that was fully ventilated and had lighting.

Dodgers Build Juan Uribe Shrine

The Dodgers hosted Juan Uribe Bobblehead Night on Saturday, which was especially strange since Uribe was traded to Atlanta in late May. The Dodgers took this as an opportunity to pay tribute to one of their favorite former teammates.
