He actually lost it eating breakfast.

Sadly, this isn't nearly as cool as it seemed

Nationals rookie Spencer Kieboom finally got his first MLB home run on Tuesday in his 45th game and his big grin revealed something puzzling—a missing tooth.

Footage of Kieboom's at-bat shows him spitting out something big and white just before the dinger, leading many people—even the Nats broadcast crew—to assume that he spit out a tooth. 

But unfortunately the thing you saw shooting out of his mouth in the clip above was just a particularly impressive loogie. It would be a bad thing if Kieboom just had teeth falling out of his head at random. He actually lost the tooth while eating breakfast.

That must have been a hell of a baguette.

The president and the starting striker

George Weah, the former World Player of the Year, was elected president of his native Liberia earlier this year. The national team was set to retire his No. 14 jersey on Tuesday at a friendly against Nigeria and the 51-year-old Weah shocked everyone by coming out of retirement to play in the game.

Weah's 18-year-old son Timothy suited up last night for the U.S. men's national team against Mexico. 

You gotta be kidding me, Dez

It's a little unfair that Kevin Durant will always be the guy people associate with running burner accounts when it seems like there are actually a ton of athletes doing this. 

The best example of this kind of thing is still FS1 trying to drum up support for Skip Bayless's new show.
