Especially when it means Los Angeles Lakers legends don't look so good.
Last week, we brought attention to the fact that Shaquille O'Neal still can't shoot free throws. In fact, he put forth a worse shooting performance than four-year-old Titus Ashby on the Jimmy Kimmel Show.
This time, it was Kobe Bryant's turn, and let's just say he fared a little better than his former L.A. teammate. Plus, he gave the kid some shoes, so that was cool.
The Los Angeles Kings were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs Saturday night after dropping Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals 3-2 in double overtime to the Chicago Blackhawks.
And while fans in the Valley aren't likely saddened by news of the defending champions' postseason departure, it's hard not to at least chuckle at the Kings' attempt at humor via their Twitter account following the season-ending defeat.
Adidas made an appearance on the Haboob blog back in March after the athletic apparel company came up with some hideous basketball duds for Baylor, Cincinnati, Kansas, Louisville, Notre Dame and UCLA.
Well apparently the Cardinals' success in the NCAA tournament convinced the people at Adidas to continue producing their rather putrid jersey designs, because the company put out a new set of unis for Louisville, Mississippi State and North Carolina State in time for this weekend's NCAA Baseball Super Regionals.
And yes, once again, they are down right ugly. Think Chicago White Sox or Houston Astros from the mid-1970s.
Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig is on his way out the door, as he plans to retire following the end of the 2014 season.
For his sake, we hope he recognizes when that time comes.
Because, it would appear, the 78-year-old is a bit unclear of what year it is right now.
During the first round of the 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft, Selig announced each team's pick. He slipped up on the first one, saying it was the year 2000. No worries, it happens. Then it happened again. And again.
Of course, Carson's tweets elicited quite a response, with some tweeting admiration for the co-Pac-12 Freshman of the Year who averaged 18.5 points and 5.1 assists per game for the Sun Devils last season. Then again, others are sending messages questioning his motives and theory.
The best umpires are the ones we don't know about.
After all, as long as a call is not missed, they're barely noticed at all.
Needless to say, Jordan Baker is not one of the best umpires. In fact, he might just be one of the worst.
Tuesday night in St. Louis, he blew what looked like a pretty easy call when he ruled St. Louis' Carlos Beltran safe on a play at third. Replays clearly showed D-backs third baseman Martin Prado applied the tag in time, but that didn't matter. Beltran go on to score in a game that went 14 innings.
But really, that may not be the worst thing Baker did (and does). The ump apparently has a habit of chewing a lot of gum during games, and when it's time for a new stick tosses the old one into the outfield. On the grass. Where baseball is played.
