Earning almost $45 million playing in professional sports is nice, but it won't help you score a foul ball.

At least not if you're former NBA center Matt Geiger, who pulled a move reminiscent of Steve Bartman during Sunday's Rays game. Geiger, sitting down the first base line, literally used his height advantage to block Tampa Bay first baseman Carlos Pena from catching a foul pop-up in the eighth inning.

Twins outfielder Josh Willingham was the benefactor as the foul ball dropped to the ground, leading to some loud boos for the former center as he was escorted up the seats to speak with ushers.

Geiger played parts of 10 seasons for the Heat, Hornets and Sixers during the 1990s.

Out of basketball since 2001, he's probably best known on sports blogs for his real estate dealings. Geiger unloaded his 28,000-square-foot estate, which included a shark tank and 330,000-gallon swimming pool with a sweet rock-diving cliff for $8 million last year.

It's refreshing to see young fans in Kansas City learn how not to play baseball by watching the sputtering Royals.

Take this young fan for example.

A man who appears to be his father goes to the trouble of grabbing a foul ball hit by Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion, hands it to his son, only to watch his kid pull a vintage 1980 George Brett impersonation, tossing the ball back onto the playing field.

Clearly the doormats of Major League Baseball are rubbing off on this innocent soul.

The Royals are now 0-9 at home this season, the worst hometown start in franchise history. Overall, it's the worst home start since the Florida Marlins also went without a win in their first nine home games of 1995.

Ask any resident of North Carolina draped in baby blue if they would like a chance to play hoops with their beloved Tar Heels, and almost all of them would put it on their bucket list. Many Carolinians got that wish yesterday as members of the Elite 8 squad played pick-up games with students and fans at the campus' Cobb Court.

While a few had moments of glory, and most were thoroughly dominated, one little man stole the show. Meet Addis Cone, 8, of Morris Grove Elementary.

Everyone loves creativity. Taking something normal and making it your own. Take commentating for example. Sure, you could say something like "He shoots and scores." Or you could say something like this:
