Umpire Laz Diaz does salsa dance with the Phillie Phanatic

The Phillie Phanatic is an instigator. The fun-loving, song-parodying mascot of the Philadelphia Phillies knows how to have a good time — and likes to bring the normally reserved set (i.e. umpires) into his tent for a few laughs. Exhibit A: a salsa dance routine with third base umpire Laz Diaz during Wednesday night's game against the Houston Astros.

Diaz took a moment to warm up to the bit but once he did, it was on. All-time Phillies hits king Jimmy Rollins even joined in on the fun. The only person missing was New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz. And Philly even won the game, beating Houston 10-3.

Sic 'em hops

Moving to college football, Baylor fans were exposed to athletic quarterback play during Robert Griffin III's tenure in Waco. But don't sleep on current Bears signal caller Bryce Petty. In a video posted on the program's Instagram account, Petty shows off his incredible vertical leap.


Finally in soccer, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski scored an impressive goal in the eighth minute of the MLS All-Star Game. But it was the only tally for the European squad as the MLS All-Stars won 2-1.
