Happy Raptors Couple Share Awkward High-Five (Video)

For the second straight game the Toronto Raptors and the Miami Heat needed overtime to settle their differences, but this time it was the Raps that came away victorious.

As a result, there were plenty of high-fives being dished out between the home fans at the Air Canada Centre.  And at least one of those high-fives was of the incredibly awkward variety:

Johnny Manziel Makes Video With His Family After Surrendering to Police (Video)

Johnny Manziel Instagram video after arrest

On Wednesday, Johnny Manziel turned himself over to Highland Park police on charges of misdemeanor assault, smiled for his mugshot, and was eventually released after posting a $1,500 bond.

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:

I’m obsessed with these people

Someone needs to delete this dude’s social media accounts before it’s too late—that is, if it isn’t already too late.

Johnny Manziel Tweets Joke About His Mugshot, Deletes It (Pic)

Johnny Manziel Mugshot

Johnny Manziel doesn’t seem to be taking his misdemeanor assault arrest, or life in general, very seriously these days.

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:

Manziel Mugshot Tweet

Of course, this tweet is a reference to Manziel’s shirtless mugshot following a public intoxication arrest from back in 2012:

Atlanta Hawks’ Twitter Account Trolls Team During Blowout Loss to Cavs (Tweets)

The Cleveland Cavaliers drained an NBA record 25 three-pointers during tonight’s Game 2 blowout win vs. the Atlanta Hawks.

It was a ridiculous shooting display from the Cavs, with J.R. Smith‘s seven three-pointers leading the way.

LeBron James also contributed four three-pointers to the Cavs’ cause:

With a record-breaking 18 of those threes coming in the first half, the Cavs held a commanding 74-38 lead at the break, resulting in this tweet from the Atlanta Hawks’ Twitter account:

And the self-trolling didn’t stop there:

When it was finally over, the Cavs had themselves a 123-98 victory and a 2-0 series lead.

Oh, and there was one more tweet from the Hawks:

Jon Lester Throws Glove to First For The Out…Again (Video)

Jon Lester Throw Glove First Base

Jon Lester it terrible at throwing the baseball to first base, but he’s pretty darn good at tossing his glove there.

He pulled off the latter last season when a ground ball got caught up in his glove. And he ran into the same problem today, during the 2nd inning of the Cubs’ 6-2 victory over the Pirates:

Social Media Went Crazy After Johnny Manziel was Booked Into Jail and Mugshot’s were Released (Tweets)

Johnny Manziel Mugshot

Johnny Manziel turned himself in to police in Highland Park earlier today on charges of misdemeanor assault with bodily injury, stemming from an incident with his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley back in January.

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.

Here’s a look at Manziel’s mugshot:

The unemployed quarterback seems pretty happy in the photo.  Here’s one possible explanation:

And here are some other reactions to Manziel’s mugshot:

Bolts’ Jonathan Drouin Takes Nasty Hit, Leaves Game, Returns to Set Up Game-Tying Goal (Videos)

Hickey Hit Drouin

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.

Diego Simeone Smack Official

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:

Magic Johnson Says Lakers Should Go After LeBron James This Summer (Tweet)

Magic Johnson And LeBron James

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:

Browns-49ers Super Bowl More Likely Than Leicester City’s Championship According To Oddsmakers

Reactions to Leicester City's Premier League Title Success

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:

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.

‘Game of Thrones’ Doppelgänger Taunts Alex Ovechkin (GIF)

Pens Fans Taunt Alex Ovechkin

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:

The only thing better than that gif may be this response to it:

‘Inside the NBA’ Crew Rips Charles Barkley’s Acting in ‘Space Jam’ (Video)

Inside the NBA - Barkley Space Jam

Is it possible that Charles Barkley‘s performance in the original ‘Space Jam’ movie was even worse that Shaquille O’Neal‘s acting in his 1996 box office disaster, Kazaam?

Shaq seems to think so.  You can watch him and the rest of the ‘Inside the NBA’ crew taunt Barkley for his poor acting skills in the video below, from last night’s NBA Playoff coverage on TNT:

Two Dead Bodies Found at Talladega After Race

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series GEICO 500

Looks like Dale Earnhardt Jr‘s steering wheel mishap wasn’t the most frightening thing that took place at Talladega Superspeedway over the weekend after all.  Not even close.

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.

Yadier Molina Drops For Two Push-Ups After Brush-Back Pitch (Video)

Yadier Molina Push-Ups

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.

Manu Ginobili Also Committed a Foul On Dion Waiters’ Inbound Pass (Pics)

Manu Ginobili Line Violation

Everyone is talking about how Dion Waiters should 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:

So I guess both non-calls cancel each other out? Can we move on now?
