We've seen it before. Fan catches foul ball. Fan goes nuts. But the entertaining reaction by one Pittsburgh Pirates fan in particular after snagging a souvenir stood out to us. The moment occurred Monday during the seventh inning of a wild game against the San Francisco Giants. Starling Marte sliced one foul down the first base line that our bro in question ended up with. But what happened next was quite spectacular. The fan (who resembled actor Hank Azaria) busted some dance moves that were equal parts "Saturday Night Fever" and "Jersey Shore". His unique flair even drew the attention of an older usher behind him.
And for good measure, after going all Tony Manero and Pauly D., our hero handed the ball over to a young fan. Too bad she didn't have this kind of reaction. As for the game, the Giants won 11-10 in 13 innings.
Moving to the NBA playoffs, Roy Hibbert's struggles are back. After a 13-point, 7-rebound, 5-block performance in Game 7 against the Atlanta Hawks, the Indiana Pacers center put up zero points and zero rebounds while logging 18 minutes in a 102-96 loss to the Washington Wizards in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The dismal performance didn't go unnoticed by his teammates.

Finally in hockey, Sidney Crosby's 13-game playoff goal drought ended. The Pittsburgh Penguins star scored in the second period as the Pens shut out the New York Rangers 2-0 to take a 2-1 series lead.
