First off, let's acknowledge that Michael Jordan is 50 and can still dunk. Amazing. However, it might be slightly more impressive if it weren't for the fact that he's doing against, what appear to be, a 10-year-old child.
The Rangers' Elvis Andrus slipped while covering second, but still managed to tag Erick Aybar while laid out on the dirt. The smile on his face afterwards says it all.
It's the Houston Texans cheerleaders doing something they call "Freestyle Fridays." And it's glorious.

Sprinter Usain Bolt returned to Olympic Stadium for the Anniversary Games on Friday, making his entrance on a rocket. Fortunately for him, he won the 100 meters in 9.85 seconds. Otherwise, it might have been really, really awkward.
Apparently Washington Redskins fan Kimberly Lewis didn't get an autograph after hanging out all day at the team's training camp, along with thousands of other fans. She was not happy. We, however, laughed a lot.
