1. Relieving The Tension
Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez was recently diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome, giving sportswriters a field day. Deadspin pieced together the story with gems from around the Internet, highlighting the struggles Gutierrez has pushed through this past year. These jokes will get readers through at least one more year.
2. Capital Champs
The Washington Capitals handily won their first-round series over the New York Rangers, and the win was so inspirational, one artist put paintbrush to canvas and busted out this masterpiece for one lucky bidder to enjoy. $5,000 to see Caps coach Bruce Boudreau in a dress for eternity? Worth it.
3. Firin' Up Wrigley
Indie darlings Arcade Fire may have won a Grammy for "The Suburbs," but they won the hearts of Chicago Cubs fans around the world with their performance of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" at Wrigley Field this past weekend. It must've been a change of pace to perform for drunk baseball fans instead of drunk music fans for once.
4. Music On Sports Off
If you prefer to hear your music through headphones instead of baseball games, check out this line of Coloud headphones featuring NHL Original Six teams. I wouldn't be surprised if you hear a goal horn every once in a while. They had to make them authentic somehow, right?
5. Black Swan? No, Crane.
With Tiger Woods out of action for the foreseeable future, other golfers get a chance to show off their talents. For some, like Ben Crane, that happens off the putting green. Crane shows off his dances moves with a variety of costumes to best set the mood. Maybe he should channel that energy into perfecting his swing. Golf, not dance.
