The look on his face is so genuine
Carlos Gomez is making a bid to become one of my favorite players in baseball. How can you not love a guy who apologized to the water cooler he destroyed, reportedly threw a ball with his phone number on it to a woman at Yankee Stadium, had the best hit-by-pitch flop you’ll ever see and was all smiles after his nightmarish pitching debut?
Now you can add this moment to the list. Gomez found a kid during yesterday’s Rays-Red Sox game and gave him one of his bats. The look on the kid’s face is absolutely priceless.
Bills fans still love Andy Dalton
It might seem weird for Bills fans to greet an opposing quarterback as warmly as they did with Andy Dalton yesterday, unless you remember what he did last year.
The Bills’ postseason drought would still be alive if not for the heroics of Dalton in Week 17. To show their appreciation, Buffalo fans started flooding Dalton’s charitable foundation with donations. All told, there were 16,000 donations totalling more than $360,000. They also donated tens of thousands of dollars to a charity backed by Tyler Boyd, the guy who caught Dalton’s pass.
Off the rack is good enough for some pros
PGA Tour pro Tyrrell Hatton was sick of missing putts this week at the Northern Trust, so he went out to Golf Galaxy and bought himself a new putter. It turned out to be a good decision, as he went out and fired his best score of the season. Do you think anyone in the store recognized him?
