Remembering Jose Fernandez
It was a rough weekend for the baseball community. On Sunday, we woke up to what seemed like one of our worst nightmares. A great young star in Jose Fernandez passed away in a boating accident far too young. The 24-year-old Marlins pitcher was already one of the best in the game and seemed to have no ceiling. His enthusiasm for the game was contagious and a treat to watch. Fernandez compiled some great highlights in a career ended way too soon.
Vin Scully ends Dodger Stadium career with a bang; Dodgers win West
The baseball gods couldn’t have scripted a better one for Vin Scully’s final home game. With the Dodgers needing a win to clinch the division, Corey Seager tied the game with a solo shot in the bottom of the ninth, setting the stage for an epic, West-winning walk-off in the 10th by a guy who hadn’t homered in two seasons. Watch Vin’s last home call and appreciate his wonderful voice one more time. Bonus: the team played a recording of him singing to the crowd after the game.

Jauan Jennings Completes the Comeback
The streak is over. After a first half that saw the Florida Gators dominating their rivals once again, Tennessee reversed the momentum and turned a 21-point deficit into a 38 straight points. It was punctuated by Jennings beating All-American corner Jalen Tabor for a 67-yard TD to take the lead.
Les Miles’ Last Play as Coach
It was only fitting “The Mad Hatter” saw his last play on the LSU sideline be a wild one. LSU seemed to have won the game as the clock was expiring and celebrated accordingly. Only problem? The clock hit zero before the snap and the call was reserved. This was the last straw for Miles as he was fired on Sunday afternoon.

T.Y. Hilton Wins It for Indy
Note to self. Tackling T.Y. Hilton in the open field is not an easy task. Just ask this San Diego safety as Hilton raced by him for the game-winning touchdown.
Cornerback With WR Hands
We’ve all known Patrick Peterson is a special CB, but he showed Sunday that he probably could make a career out of being a receiver. This insane one-handed interception wasn’t enough for the win, but it makes for a great highlight.
This day in sports history.
On this day 76 short years ago Michigan running back Tom Harmon rushed for not one, not two, but three long scores. He busted open with 72, 86, and 94-yard TD runs.
This day just two years ago saw the Royals begin their magical playoff run with a bang with an extra-inning classic in the Wild Card game against the A’s. Relive that incredible moment here.
