Kansas City Royals outfielder Alex Gordon has won three straight Gold Glove Awards. Unfortunately for the 30-year-old All-Star, no amount of defensive skill could save him from the indignity he suffered Wednesday at Petco Park against the San Diego Padres.
While attempting to make a sliding catch on a Seth Smith foul ball down the third-base line, Gordon crashed into the padded wall along the warning track in left field. Not only did part of the padded section lightly fall on him, some condensation also spilled on Gordon. Just not right.
Moving to NBA news, Los Angeles Clippers superfan Rebecca Grant got attention for (throat clear) making an adjustment in clear view of TNT cameras during Game 7 between the Clippers and Golden State Warriors. Then she did an interview that was live.
No tomfoolery here
Finally, that picture floating around of 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel drinking a beer in the green room during the first round of the NFL draft? A fake.

And it may have looked like Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was dozing off while waiting to be selected at No. 32 by the Minnesota Vikings — but he was just looking at his phone.
Remember when Teddy Bridgewater was the projected as the first pick? Yikes. pic.twitter.com/VoBcijo4R5— Cork Gaines (@CorkGaines) May 9, 2014
