This is your daily link roundup of our favorite sports and entertainment posts on the web for June 2.

May was a particularly bountiful month in sports-related pulchritude. Enjoy.

• Some photos need no commentary. Like this one: Prince at the French Open, holding a scepter.

• A little piece of history: For the first time, both managers challenged on the same play. Both lost.

Sorry, ladies: Bryce Harper's engaged.

A little wild footage of an ultra-marathon being interrupted by a careening out-of-control car.

Video of a fat guy eating pizza while he's working out. I guess he's multi-tasking.

Donald Sterling attended a black church service. Uh, Donald, it's a little late to be doing damage control.

• The dangers of auto-fill: The Blackhawks accidentally tweeted out a Spanish obscenity.

This high school kid's pose and bat-flip were positively Puig-ian. At least the situation called for it.

Serena Williams crashed a beach wedding in a leopard-print bathing suit.

• Got half a minute to kill? Watch Scott Langley's putt hang on the lip for 23 seconds. Spoiler alert: It drops.

• Florida pulled off a hidden ball trick. Didn't prevent their elimination from the NCAA Regionals.
