Rougned Odor Clocks Jose Bautista With a Hard Right During Jays-Rangers Brawl (Videos)

Odor Punch Bautista

The Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers had already played six games without any incidents following Jose Bautista‘s “bat-flip heard round the world” during Game 5 of last year’s ALDS, but during their seventh meeting of the season on Sunday, shit finally hit the fan.

It all went down during the top of the 8th inning.  After being hit by a Matt Bush pitch to start the inning, Bautista attempted to break up a double play with a hard slide at second base on Rougned Odor.  The Rangers’ second baseman obviously didn’t appreciate that, so he retaliated by shoving the Jays outfielder and clocking him with a clean right cross to the jaw:

Both benches cleared and when it was all said and done, Bautista and Josh Donaldson were ejected for the Jays, while Odor and bench coach Steve Buchele got the boot for the Rangers.

The benches cleared once again when the Jays’ Jesse Chavez hit Prince Fielder with his first pitch in the bottom of the 8th, but no haymakers were thrown this time around. In the end, a total of 8 players and managers were ejected throughout the course of the game, which the Rangers won, 7-6.

The rivalry grows stronger.

In-Flight Movies (Video)

Hey dudes. Sorry, but as we’re in transit back from New York City we aren’t really able to post today. That said, we’re still willing to give you a couple videos that will keep you entertained in the meantime.

First on deck, this touching and tasty little clip of David Nelson scoring a touchdown and then giving the ball to his girlfriend, a member of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleader squad. Face it, you’ve never given your girlfriend anything as good as this, ever. That’s good teevee, folks, the likes of which you probably won’t see again for some time.

Next up, on the subject of epic touchdowns, check this punt return from the Arkansas / Tennessee game. Not only did Arkansas score a record 49-7 victory over Tennessee, Joe Adams also ran this incredible punt return for a touchdown.

See you tomorrow, kids.

Picture Of The Day: Dominick Cruz’s Broken Hand

Dominick Cruz broken hand

If you think Dominick Cruz’s hand looks disgusting, you should see the face he broke it on!

Cruz underwent surgery to repair the hand he broke during his UFC bantamweight title fight against Demetrious Johnson on October 1st.  He was able to battle through the injury and finish the fight, which he won via unanimous decision, but it doesn’t appear as though he’ll be throwing any punches with that fist for a while.

Picture Of The Day: Is This The Worst BJJ Injury Ever?

Mixed Martial Arts is one tough profession.  When you aren’t getting your lights knocked out in a fight, you are getting your toe snapped off preparing for one.  That appears to be the case in this picture, which was taken by UFC bantamweight fighter Miguel Angel Torres and posted on his TwitPic account.  According to Torres, the owner of the toe is some guy named Parrish and it occurred in his gym during a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training session.

And for those of you wondering if this was the result of some sort of crazy BJJ toe-lock, it wasn’t.  Parrish’s toe merely got stuck in between two mats.

Picture Of The Day: Joe Mauer’s Hairiest Fan

For all those hairy Joe Mauer fans out there who can’t seem to afford a jersey of their favorite player or a session of laser hair removal for their back, we have a solution to all of your problems, thanks to this guy.

Seeing as how he is wearing the dark jersey, I’m going to assume that this was a road game for the Twins. I wonder if he switches to the white jersey for their home games.

Picture Of The Day: Planking At Its Sexiest

Planking appears to be the new fad in America these days.  Everyone is doing it!  Even Scott Dixon and the rest of the drives in the IndyCar series have gotten in on the act.

Also among the thousands who have taken up this strange new hobby is this young woman, who is proving that planking is truly at its sexiest when it is done in a pair of skimpy jean shorts.
