Usually athletes and celebrities will stay away from social media after a legal run-in like this, but not Johnny Football. First he joked about his mugshot on Twitter, and then he posted this happy little video with his parents and hot sister on Instagram:
Not only does the unemployed quarterback continue to drink and party, but he’s even cracking jokes about his mugshot, which he took after turning himself in for misdemeanor assault charges on Wednesday.
Here’s the tweet, which was deleted shortly after:
Of course, this tweet is a reference to Manziel’s shirtless mugshot following a public intoxication arrest from back in 2012:
Manziel was booked at the station and released after posting his $1,500 bond. The incident with Crowley did not take place in Highland Park, but Manziel was allowed to turn himself into any police station within the state of Texas. He’s currently scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
During Game 3 between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the New York Islanders last night, Bolts forward Jonathan Drouin was the recipient of one of the hardest hits you’ll see all post-season, courtesy of the Isles’ Thomas Hickey.
Check it out:
That hit sent Drouin to the quiet room, where he was evaluated for a concussion. But after passing all tests, Drouin returned to the game just in time to set up the game-tying goal for his team with less than a minute remaining in regulation:
From there, the Lightning would go on to win the game in overtime, taking a 2-1 series lead.
Atletico Madrid advanced to the UEFA Champions League final after defeating Bayern Munich on away goals earlier today. Now they’ll sit and wait to see who their opponent will be—between Real Madrid and Manchester City
Whoever it is, Atletico may have to face them without the services of their head coach, Diego Simeone, after he did this to a UEFA official along the sideline late in today’s match:
The Los Angeles Lakers doesn’t seem to have much of a shot at luring LeBron James away from Cleveland (or Miami) when he becomes a free agent this summer, but according to Magic Johnson, that doesn’t mean the team shouldn’t at least try.
Here’s what the former Laker had to say about the Lakers’ pursuit of LeBron, via Twitter:
Laker Nation: The Lakers should call LeBron James agent. We know he’s going stay in CLE but they should go after him just in case he leaves.
How unlikely was Leicester City’s Premier League title, which they clinched on Monday? Very unlikely when you consider the fact that they were 5000-to-1 underdogs to win it all at the start of the season, which according to the oddsmakers, is twice as unlikely as the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers meeting in Super Bowl 51—an outcome that is currently being offered at 2,746-to-1:
Leicester City winning EPL: 5000 to 1. 49ers & Browns playing in this year’s Super Bowl: 2,746 to 1 (H/T @JoinTheRukkus)
The Browns and 49ers are currently the two biggest long-shots to win Super Bowl LI, so that chances of that happening are incredibly slim. But after what Leicester City just did, I guess anything is possible.
The Penguins seem to be getting the better of Alex Ovechkin at the moment, holding a 2-1 series lead over his Washington Capitals while limiting the Russian sniper to just one goal through the first three games of their Eastern Conference semifinal.
As for the Pens’ fans, they’re also getting the better of Ovi from the looks of it. Here they are taunting the Caps forward from behind the glass late in last night’s game:
One man in attendance for Sunday’s Geico 500 returned to his trailer after the race, only to find his two friends dead. The two men were said to be dead for 6 to 7 hours when they were discovered. No foul play is suspected and it is also believed that this is not a case of carbon monoxide poisoning.
When asked whether drugs or alcohol were involved, NASCAR officials told TMZ to contact law enforcement for that information. They have yet to receive a response.
Usually when an athlete drops down and does some push-ups, it’s because they committed some sort of mistake. But in this instance, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina didn’t do anything wrong. In fact, he actually did something right when he dodged an inside fastball from Phillies pitcher Brett Oberholtzer.
But he did a few pushups anyway:
Apparently the extra workout didn’t tire Molina too much, because he was still able to muster a single during the at-bat, raising his batting average to .333 for the season.
Everyone is talking about how Dion Waitersshould have been called for a foul for elbowing Manu Ginobili while inbounding the ball with 13.5 seconds remaining in the 4th quarter of Game 2 on Monday. But how about the violation that Manu Ginobili committed before receiving an elbow from Waiters?
According to NBA rules, a defender is not to step on the boundary line while defending an inbound pass.
As per Rule No. 12, Section II, #5, a delay-of-game will be called for the following:
A defender crossing the boundary line prior to the ball being released on a throw-in.
And here’s how a delay-of-game is dealt with during the final two minutes of regulation:
In the last two minutes of the fourth period and last two minutes of any overtime period, a technical foul will be assessed if the defender crosses or breaks the plane of the boundary line when an offensive player is in a position to inbound and prior to the ball being released on a throw-in.
A closer look at the play shows that Ginobili was clearly on the line—which may explain why Waiters had to elbow him, in order to get himself enough room to make a pass. The Spurs guard should have been called for a delay-of-game, but was not:
