It's a lot easier to have fun when you're winning. Just ask Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat. Before the regular-season opener against the Chicago Bulls Tuesday night, Bosh received a ring to commemorate the Heat's championship run last season. After the game he reminded fans that he's also a champion videobomber while lurking in the background of both the LeBron James and Dwayne Wade postgame interviews — which were being filmed on two separate television networks.
Bosh's energy was just as apparent during the game too, as he chipped in 16 points for the Heat, second only to James in Miami's 107-95 win. The Bulls rallied late but simply couldn't match the defending champs, even with a healthy Derrick Rose and some encouragement from a Chicago fan who calls the White House home:

The MLB revealed its 2013 Gold Glove recipients on Tuesday. Among those receiving the prestigious defensive honors were four of the men competing in this year's World Series. St. Louis Cardinals Yadier Molina took home his sixth straight Gold Glove and was joined on the National League list by teammate Adam Wainwright. Meanwhile, Dustin Pedroia and Shane Victorino represented the Boston Red Sox among the American League winners.
Finally in hockey, veteran Jaromir Jagr scored his 119th game-winning goal when the New Jersey Devils beat the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night 2-1. The goal puts Jagr only two shy of the record held by the legendary Gordie Howe.
