After wearing a highlighter yellow tennis ball gown to the pre-Wimbledon party last week, American Bethanie Mattek-Sands sported a similarly designed white jacket to her opening round match in order to comply with the All England Club's all white rule. Mattek-Sands lost the match in three sets, but not before garnering plenty of attention for her threads, which were actually produced by one of Lady Gaga's own designers.
2. Biker Ballet
As if a scene ready-made for a Benny Hill film, two French riders competing in the Promosport Championship presented both their bad luck and amateurism when their bikes got tangled up. What ensued is something the track at Magny-Cours had surely never seen before.
3. Phoul Play
The Phillie Phanatic got hit by a foul ball while entertaining at a Lehigh Valley IronPigs game on Wednesday. The Phillies were away for a road series, so the famed mascot made a special trip to the team's Triple-A affiliate in Allentown, Pa. Tom Burgoyne, the man who has filled the mascot's shoes for nearly two decades, did end up making a trip to the hospital. But despite a bump over his eye, he says the Phanatic will be ready for the Phillies' next home stand, showing that in the big leagues, even mascots play hurt.
4. Sharp Shooters
The first football family, the Mannings, are at it again. As part of DIRECTV's latest Sunday Ticket drive, the two quarterback brothers donned badges and mustaches in what looks like it could be a fairly successful TV show if the NFL season fails to materialize due to the lockout. And don't worry, they brought Archie along, too.
5. Throwing Gas
Former Olympic softball pitcher Jennie Finch gave birth to her second child with Major League hurler Casey Daigle over the weekend. The two immediately struck-out, christening him with a moniker more fitting for something you put in your truck than you name your newborn son.
