New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon has already done some wacky things on and around a baseball field this season. There was his version of the Truffle Shuffle. There was the Swing Heard 'Round Queens. And now this. During the fifth inning of Thursday's matinee against the St. Louis Cardinals (which the Mets won 4-1 thanks to a masterful performance by the soon-to-be 41-year-old), Colon attempted to field a routine comebacker off the bat of fellow starter Lance Lynn. Colon even settled into a perfect defensive stance. One problem: the ball glanced off his glove for an error. But the panache shown by the former Cy Young Award winner was pure comic gold.

Luckily, the miss didn't cost his team the game as the Bruins won 3-2 in overtime.
And if you didn't know what a Bandette is, you do now. It's a cheerleader from the National Lacrosse League's Buffalo Bandits. One in particular performed flawlessly after a wardrobe malfunction that featured an oversized jersey.
