Brewers manager Ron Roenicke sported a throwback jersey during a recent game against Miami. Unfortunately, it was misspelled, with the "U" and the "K" in Milwaukee swapped on the front. Apparently, it was a throwback to when people couldn't spell.

Now this is a baseball fan. During a recent Cincinnati Reds game at the Great American Ball Park, this die-hard fan was spotted sporting a color-coordinated mohawk while taking in the action. No word on why he didn't dye his arm and back hair red.

Body:
Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt recently posted a video of himself demonstrating his freakish athletic ability. Although he weighs in at 288 pounds, Watt can jump an astounding 59.5 inches into the air and land on a stack of boxes. We're not sure what the practical application is, but if we need someone to jump on boxes for us, we know who we're calling.

Body:
The Arizona Diamondbacks have introduced D-backs Luchador (@DbacksLuchador) as an official mascot. Because why wouldn't you want your baseball team to have a Mexican wrestler to represent your franchise, right? Right? 
 
 
According to the team: The D-backs Luchador first appeared at Chase Field in June 2012, the same year that the team conducted their first Lucha Libre mask giveaway.
 
Lucha Libre -- literally translated as "free fighting" -- has a long, proud history within the Hispanic culture and is often said to be the second most popular sport, ranking only behind soccer.
 
Soon after his first sighting, the D-backs Luchador quickly became a recognizable presence throughout the ballpark, leading the team to make him a formal character in the 2013 season. Possessed with high-flying wrestling skills and a "good-guy" persona, the
D-backs Luchador is admired by children and adults alike.
 
Throughout 2013 season, the D-backs Luchador will be making appearances at D-backs games and community events, in addition to wrestling with Club Deportivo Coloseo at the Glendale Park and Swap.
 
Uh, OK, we still don't get it.

During last night's MLB All-Star Game, Prince Fielder managed to reach third base. No, we're serious. He chugged his way around the bases like a fat gazelle, punctuating his effort with a head-first slide into third. No word on whether he required oxygen afterward.

This is exactly why I don't race cars. That, and I don't have a race car. During a race this past Saturday in Winston-Salem, N.C., driver Mike Robertson was angry at race winner Derek Stolz for bumping him. In retaliation, Robertson did the only logical thing: he hopped out of his car and went to confront Stolz during his victory lap. The result is that Robertson went for a ride on the side of Stolz's car until he was flung into a wall. Reports are that Robertson was uninjured.

Body:

Singer Carly Rae Jepsen was asked to throw the ceremonial first pitch before the Tampa Bay Rays’ game against the Houston Astros this past weekend. The result? Well, it was terrible. Bad. Horrific. If the catcher was 50 feet closer and had a fishing net, he still wouldn't have hauled this one in. In other words, if you tried to throw out a worse first pitch, you couldn't do it. Well, probably. You be the judge.

As impossible as it may seem, this is real. A Nashville reporter headed down to the Tennessee Titans' stadium on the day single-game tickets went on sale and found a guy camped out waiting in line. The only problem is that nobody was in line. NOBODY. The resulting interview with the half-awake fan is hilarious.
 
Best moment? When the reporter, obviously confused by why he's camping out, asks "Have you heard of the Internet? Why don't you buy these online?"

The Louisiana Tech athletic department released photos of a special stars-and-stripes helmet the Bulldogs will wear in their Heart of Dallas Classic game against Army on Sept. 28 in the Cotton Bowl. The game also serves as Louisiana Tech's annual "Military Appreciation Day." 
 
Even cooler is that the school has already worked with EA Sports to ensure that the new helmet design will be available in NCAA Football 14 once the company releases its initial uniform update patch the last week of August. No word yet as to whether you can play QB as Captain America.
