If you're missing a credit card from your wallet, you might want to check with Tsuyoshi Wada. The Chicago Cubs pitcher found one on the baseball field Wednesday night, and he doesn't know who it belongs to.

In this video from the Cubs-Padres game in San Diego, Wada is walking off the field after finishing the inning when something catches his eye. In a scene that would be normal anywhere but on a professional baseball field, he bends down and picks up the credit card.

Wada quickly brought it over to a security guard, but that's far from a mystery solved. Who, exactly, misplaces a credit card on the infield of an MLB park?


The best part of the sequence if the confused face Wada makes when he picks up the credit card and recognizes what it is. It's a far cry from the typical infield debris that typically gets blown or tossed from the stands. Although, if fans were going to pelt you with garbage, you'd probably rather it be credit cards than glass bottles.

Matt Joyce has learned his lesson.

The outfielder was benched and fined by the Angels on Monday for arriving late to the team's game against the Toronto Blue Jays. He admitted to reporters he thought the game was later in the day.

“It's just one of those things that should never happen," said Joyce, who has been in the majors since 2008. "As a guy that’s been around and had some service time, I made a mistake. I assumed we had a night game since it was a day game Sunday and assumed we had a night game Monday since we normally always do. By the time I realized it was a day game it was a little late."

As it turns out, the game on Monday started at 1:07 p.m., because it was Victoria Day in Canada

Joyce on Wednesday posted a screenshot of the six alarms he had set for himself, and he's not kidding around with his new punctuality policy.


The timing for these alarms is meant for a day game, but whatever Joyce did on Wednesday worked and he arrived on time to the Angels' evening matchup with the Blue Jays.

The incident only adds to what has been a disappointing season for Joyce. In his first year with the Angels, Joyce is hitting .155 with one home run, 11 RBI and 27 strikeouts.

The Chicago White Sox may want to rethink the photo on a door at U.S. Cellular Field.

The door in question features an image of White Sox southpaw John Danks. What's awkward about all of this is the placement of the handle, which you can see for yourself in the photo below:


Yikes.

It's in moments like these that Twitter can be especially entertaining:





Things aren't going great for the real John Danks, either. The 30-year-old is off to a 2-3 start to the 2015 season. He's given up 41 hits in 38.2 innings and has a 4.66 ERA for the fourth place White Sox.

Tiger Woods' potty mouth has been well-documented by fans and golf observers, and it turns out the FCC is well aware of his behavior.

According to records acquired by Golf.com, 70 percent of the FCC complaints targeting broadcasts of the PGA Tour have referred to incidents of Woods swearing on broadcast television.

If you're familiar with Woods, you're well aware that he can be a bit of an angry golfer. Even so, some fans of golf are frustrated that they have to deal with his harsh language on television. Multiple complaints cite the presence of young viewers when arguing that action should be taken by the FCC to curb Woods' swearing.

"My 11 year old daughter enjoys watching golf with her Dad," writes one golf fan. "No more, as long as Tiger's playing! I've been aware of his anger management problem for years, having heard it in person at tournaments. However, when a network chooses to air him without a delay, I have to keep my daughter away.

"She did not know the 'GD' word until today."

And one of the less articulate complaints:

"Tiger Woods used very'very,profane 4 letter word.This was viewed by millons.This was during the PGA Masters tournment.Bobby Jones is turning over in his Grave."

It would seem that the easy fix is to air golf tournaments on a delay, giving broadcasters time to censor the language. Nevertheless, there's no evidence that the FCC has taken action against the PGA Tour or the networks airing tournaments, so there's probably no reason to expect change anytime soon.

Complaints Made to the FCC during PGA Tour Telecasts

The Tennessee Titans are proud owners of a 16-year sellout streak that has maintained even throughout several straight years of recent disappointment. But it turns out that streak might not be an accurate reflection of interest.

An investigative report from NewsChannel 5 in Nashville reveals that the Titans managed to keep the sellout streak going through an arrangement its executives made with a ticket dealer in Boca Raton, Florida.

The team essentially turned the scalper into the top ticket source for Titans games. In exchange, the Titans used the scalper to gain better control over market prices, preventing low demand from sparking a plummet in secondary market sales prices.

According to the news report, the deal was approved by multiple team executives, none of whom are currently with the team. The executives had hoped that, by working with one scalper and making him the strongest presence in the market, other scalpers would be pushed out, and the value of Titans football tickets would increase.

In exchange for reducing the other competition, the team's main scalper, Cole Rubin, would buy all unsold tickets for Titans home games. He could then use those tickets as inventory, selling them at a premium and turning a huge profit.

In some respects, this relationship is not scandalous or even unheard of. Rubin is a very successful scalper who has working relationships with 22 different NFL teams, according to NewsChannel 5, and teams regularly work with secondary sellers for a variety of purposes.

This might be the first case, though, of using those arrangements to ensure sellouts and generate kickbacks in sales revenue. The report also found that some tickets designated as military donations were given to Rubin to sell, instead of to military personnel.

The Titans have come out pleading their innocence on all counts, and said the military tickets issue is merely an error of attribution.

"The fact that some tickets were falsely designated as military comps on an internal report during a past season can never diminish the esteem in which we hold our servicemen and women, the high regard in which we hold their duty and sacrifice, and the fact that we will continue to provide our military with complimentary tickets throughout each future Titan season," said the team in a statement.

The Titans say they have also hired outside investigators to learn more about the matter, and to audit their ticket sales.

During an appearance Monday on Access Hollywood, UFC champion Ronda Rousey delivered a deft verbal jab to Floyd Mayweather.

Responding to Stephanie Bauer's question of whether she could take down Mayweather, Rousey started with a relatively diplomatic answer: "Well, I would never say that I can't beat anyone, but I don’t think me and him would ever fight."

Then she struck hard.

"Unless we ended up dating," Rousey said.

Mayweather, of course, has a history of domestic violence. As Deadspin documented, there have been "at least seven separate physical assaults on five different women that resulted in arrest or citation" and Mayweather served two months of jail time in 2012.

Two notable female journalists, ESPN's Michelle Beadle and CNN/Turner's Rachel Nichols, were denied credentials to cover his bout against Manny Pacquiao because both had reported critically about Mayweather's issues with domestic violence.

It is also worth noting that Mayweather dissed Rousey by claiming he hadn't heard of her last summer. That's when UFC president Dana White said Rousey could "hurt Mayweather badly" and Rousey said she could hang with Mayweather in an MMA fight. Mayweather responded by saying of Rousey: "I don't know who he is."

Since then, Rousey's profile has only increased with movie appearances, and Sports Illustrated just put her on the cover with a headline touting her as the "world's most dominant athlete." Here's a clip from HBO's Real Sports in which she talks about her reputation going global:

One thing Rousey and Mayweather have in common is that both have appeared in a WrestleMania. Mayweather knocked out the Big Show at WrestleMania XXIV. Rousey made a surprise appearance at WrestleMania 31 and stole the show as she threw down Triple H with a judo toss and forced Stephanie McMahon to flee the ring with a variation of her signature arm bar.

With such a hectic schedule, it might be tough for Rousey to find time to date anyone, and Tinder was a bust because she said she was recognized despite using an alias.

But when asked for the type of man she prefers, Rousey told Access Hollywood: "Everyone expects that I want these giant, burly guys, and that's not really the case. I don't come home from the gym and feel like super rough… I want to be a girl when I come home. I want to be taken care of when I get home. Right now, I'm waiting for a tall, dark pediatrician or something, you know. Something like that."

Keeping in mind all the things that Kevin Garnett has headbutted, including Dwight Howard and countless basket stanchions, it perhaps isn't surprising that the "Big Ticket" has gone after a wall with his melon.

What's curious is the impetus that compelled Garnett to knock a hole in the wall of his own house.

In the second part of a wonderful series on Bleacher Report, Howard Beck reveals lots of great Garnett anecdotes. One, told to Beck by Cleveland Cavaliers assistant (and longtime Garnett friend) Tyronn Lue, is particularly entertaining.

Lue, an assistant coach with the Celtics during Garnett's days in Boston, remembers how one episode of "Making the Band" had Garnett feeling enraged:

Tyronn Lue: A lot of people do all their howling on the court and they're faking just for attention, but what he does is genuine. So one day we were at his house and we were watching Puff Daddy's show Making the Band, and in one of the scenes, some new guys came in and were trying to sing and were trying to compete against the guys who had been there. And KG just got so hyped, "Motherf----r, you've got to stand up for yours! You've got to fight! Motherf----r, you've got to come together!" He's going crazy, he's sweaty. And he just head butts the wall and put a hole in the wall of his house.

So, there it is. Proof that Garnett really is cut from a different cloth. It's one thing to be as intense as Garnett is on the court, it's another to take that intensity to a casual viewing of a mediocre MTV show.

While there's no video or photo evidence of Garnett's headbutt, one can imagine it looked something like this:

We know him as Michael Jordan, but in China, His Airness is known as "Qiaodan." It turns out that's a problem for MJ, who is having to battle in Chinese courts for legal right to his own name -- and so far, he's losing.

Jordan is embroiled in a lawsuit against Qiaodan Sports -- again, this business name is equivalent to "Michael Jordan Sports" -- on grounds that the company has used his Chinese name and his jersey number "23" to sell sportswear and other memorabilia. The company has done so without Jordan's permission, and without giving him any compensation.

It would seem Jordan has a pretty strong case in the trademark dispute. But a ruling by Beijing Municipal High People's Court actually ruled against Jordan, upholding Qiaodan's right to use the name and number.

Jordan will now take the case to China's highest court in an attempt to gain control over his name and brand. Meanwhile, the former Chicago Bulls star is just the latest example of a disturbing trend that is seeing Chinese companies rip off foreign brands by violating trademark. New Balance reportedly lost a trademark lawsuit that required the company to pay $16 million, according to Chinese state media reports.

Meanwhile, Chinese fast food chain Yonghe Dawang uses branding designed to closely resemble KFC, including a Chinese "Colonel" modeled after the original. The similarities are evident in the photo below:

It's hard to say how Jordan might come out of this legal battle. Reuters reports that he was sued in 2013 by Qiaodan Sports for $8 million due to the damage he has caused to its reputation. It's unclear if that lawsuit has been resolved.

Even if Jordan escapes any monetary actions resulting from the court case, his brand will suffer greatly from weak trademark rights in China. Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the country, and Michael Jordan remains one of the most popular athletes even to this day.

But unless the high court overturns the previous decision, he won't have control over his own name.

The world seems to be Aaron Rodgers' oyster right now, and he's eager to do all the shucking he can.

Sure, he missed out on the Super Bowl this year. But the Packers quarterback is now dating actress Olivia Munn, and he just surged to a stunning Celebrity Jeopardy! win against an astronaut and a Shark Tank star.

So it seems reasonable that Rodgers is setting his sights on what other thrilling notches he can carve into his belt.


At the top of that list: Hosting Saturday Night Live. Rodgers has already made appearances in State Farm commercials with two memorable SNL acts, including the bodybuilding duo Hans and Franz, and he'd like to take center stage on the show as its host one week.

Another surprising bucket list item: Rodgers wants to play an NFL game in London. It's a surprising preference since many players have complained over the time zone change and, in some cases, having to give up a real home game to play at "home" in England, but Rodgers hopes the Packers get the chance:

"I would love to play in Wembley [Stadium],” Rodgers tells CBS Sports.

Rodgers also wants to play golf at the courses in Scotland and Ireland, and he hopes he gets the chance soon. He's had a little luck getting what he wants recently, considering he wasn't even on Jeopardy!'s radar when they started seeking out celebrity participants. They actually called his girlfriend, Munn, first.

"She was like, 'I don't really want to do this,'" Rodgers tells ESPN Wisconsin. “I was like, 'I will do that! Tell your people I will do it!'"

Not only did he participate -- he won in stunning fashion. Now he's on to chasing other dreams.

For what it's worth, Rodgers would probably make a great SNL host. Here's one of his commercials appearing alongside SNL characters:

On the heels of the biggest win in his career, Rickie Fowler couldn't help but celebrate his Players Championship win. With the cool $1.8 million that came with the trophy, Fowler did the logical thing: He took a vacation to the Bahamas.

Here's where Fowler does what other golfers couldn't do: he brought his supermodel girlfriend with him.

In photos the couple posted to Instagram, Fowler is clearly reveling in his landmark victory. He and girlfriend Alexis Randock both posted photos to give thanks for his championship and for the people behind his success.


Fowler also took time to thank his mom, since his Players victory came on Mother's Day. His mom was present for the big win:


Wow!! It still hasn't sunk in...I wouldn't have had this opportunity without my family and friends...I also have the most amazing fans who have always been there for me! It was such an amazing week having my girlfriend @alexis.randock alongside me every step of the way! My family has done so much to allow me to just go play golf and to win with my mom there on Mother's Day was a bonus! To Butch for taking me to the next level...more wins on the way!! And then there's @skovy14...we did it brew!! From VJGA to the @pgatour #PlayersChamp15 last but not least I cannot forget to thank my sponsors/partners who are a part of my team @wasserman @cobrapumagolf @puma @mbusa #Rolex #Titleist #ScottyCameron @redbull @saltoptics @wheelsup8760 @wearefarmers @zurichna @bushnellgolf @quickenloans @volcom @golfdigest @golfpigeon @osuathletics #EASports #MVGR #BarryMcDonnell #TeamFowler

A photo posted by Rickie Fowler (@therealrickiefowler) on

Fowler is currently ranked 10th in the PGA and has had an up-and-down season. He finished third at the World Golf Classic in November and placed 12th at The Masters, but didn't even make the cut at the Zurich Classic less than a month ago.

Then again, he's dating a supermodel and has made almost $3 million in purse money this year. No one's feeling sorry for Rickie Fowler.
