Not a bad wedding gift
Two Bills fans who stopped by New Era Field for some photos after their wedding on Saturday were treated to a pretty awesome surprise. Rookies Josh Allen, Harrison Phillips and Austin Proehl just happened to be driving and decided to hop out and take a few photos with the wedding party.
I missed it the first few times I saw the second photo but do not sleep on the two bridesmaids wearing “Go Bills” underwear. That’s how you know these are real fans.
Just a few inches is the difference between being a hero and losing the game
The field is set for the College World Series after Florida beat Auburn in extra innings last night. Austin Langworthy had the walk-off homer for the Gators in the 11th, but Tigers freshman Steven Williams came tantalizingly close to robbing it. While Williams was distraught over coming so close to keeping his team alive, he can take comfort in the fact that he still has three more seasons to make it to the CWS.
Are you ready to hate Bill Belichick even more?
Here’s a classic stupid gossip item from Page Six. Bill Belichick and his girlfriend stayed at a hotel on the Upper East Side of Manhattan before heading out to Long Island for the Belmont Stakes on Saturday. Rather than ask me for brunch recommendations in the neighborhood, Belichick ordered blueberry pancakes and coffee for room service. The bill came to a whopping $60.97—for pancakes and coffee! If I pay that much for pancakes, the syrup cup better be an oragami $50 bill.

Panama may have qualified for the World Cup ahead of the United States but at least we have the bragging rights in, uhh, U18 basketball.
The U.S. U18 men’s team absolutely embarrassed Panama last night.
It was 43–0 after one quarter, 70–8 at the half, 99–17 after three and 118–26 when the game mercifully ended. Even crazier? The top U.S. scorer had just 17 points.
