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.

Body:

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 .

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. 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?"

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.

Mario Djurovski, a midfielder for Muangthong United in the Thai Premier League, celebrated a goal recently in awesome fashion (at the 25-second mark): he takes off his shorts, puts them on his head and taunts the crowd. Of course, his celebration is short-lived as the grippy-wearing player was handed a red card, and sent on his way. Still, I'll say this, he's got balls...which are fortunately covered by his shirt.

Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte's new show, "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?", premiered last Sunday. It was awful. If you don't believe us, you can watch the second episode, which airs this Sunday night on E! But before you do, know that Lochte's not going to wow you with his smarts…or creativity…or any talent that doesn't involve swimming really, really fast. 

To summarize what you can expect, we put together this helpful graphic of his utter stupidity, based on things that happened during the first episode. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Noah, who returned to the hospital the following day, has been a fan of the team since his older sister began attending the school.

Most of the excitement comes from NCAA Tournament bracket games, where anyone can fill out a March Madness bracket in hopes winning cash, prizes and bragging rights among friends and co-workers. Of course, the majority of people have no clue which teams to pick. 

Athlon Sports is here to help. We put together these handy —starting with the Sweet 16 on down—from three of our college basketball experts. Each editor has their own bracket picks, so you can choose one or use the cumulative knowledge of each to create your own unique picks. Either way, it will likely save you the office humiliation of picking Iona to win it all.
