The A's are the feel-good story in baseball this season. Oakland is 56-46 and leads the AL wild-card race. Walkoff wins have become the team's signature. The A's recorded their 12th walkoff win last night, defeating Tampa Bay 4-3 in 15 innings. As Hot Clicks highlighted last week after a Coco Crisp walkoff hit, the A's are VERY aggressive with their postgame celebrations during these victories. This was on display again last night when reliever Jordan Norberto, whose beard is a thing of beauty, physically assaultedJemile Weeks after he drove in the winning run.

Marriage proposals have been staples at Major League ballparks. However, if you're going to pop the question via the stadium's scoreboard, you had better make sure your girlfriend is in her seat. Sadly, this wasn't the case at Wrigley Field last night.
Timing Is Everything
I've been saying for weeks on Twitter that the behavior of "fans" on the social media service is completely out of control. I have no doubt you're going to see more and more athletes delete their account or just stop tweeting as time goes on. I can cite several examples of vile fan behavior, and will do so in a future edition, but for now, just check out this story about a 17-year-old who was arrested for sending a disgusting tweet to Olympian Tom Daley.
