Where can you see a Civil War reenactment, Olymic Curling, shark fishing, a magic show and a live replay of the Mayweather versus Pacquiao fight? A college baseball game on a rain delay. Yes, rain delays seem to be leading to be getting crazier by the day, with yet another hilarious example of what is possible when you put a group of adolescent males together on a field together and delay a baseball game. This time the shenanigans are served up by Fresno State and New Mexico. After watching that clip, you'd have a hard time convincing us that those players would rather have played their game than have that rain delay. Especially the Fresno State players, considering that they lost the game 9-1 against New Mexico once it was actually played. (H/T: Bleacher Report)

It may not be summer quite yet according to the calendar, but with every video like this one of kids going for a dive in a lake, June 21st seems that much closer. In case you forgot that blob jumps into a lake are incredibly fun, GoPro is here to remind you of the sky high laughs. Here's a question that will keep us up at night though...did that last kid land back on the blob? Because if that's the case, that must have been a pretty crummy landing.

For the second weekend in a row, the professional dunking community has graced us all with another spectacular, highly creative and incredibly athletic dunk. Last week it was the 'Lost and Found', this week it's the 'Triple Up' slam brought to you by a European dunker named Kroha. All we can say is we cannot wait to see dunks like these and more in July when ESPN holds the 'City Slam' competition to crown the best dunker on the planet. (H/T: Bleacher Report)

Earlier in the season Reds manager Bryan Price showed that he can get pretty fiery. Little did we know that Price can get so red hot that he can get himself ejected from a ball game before it has even started. Before Saturday's game in Cleveland, Price decided to share a few words with crew chief Jim Reynolds while he handed in the Reds lineup card. Those words led to an instant ejection. We will just sit here, eagerly awaiting to find out what it was that Price could've possibly said to get ejected so quickly. (H/T: FTW USA Today)

While Borussia Dortmund were able to avoid relegation after a dreadful start, their shaky season still took a toll on the club with numerous players rumoured to be on their way out and long long time manager Jurgen Klopp announcing his departure. Although fans at Signal Iduna Park openly expressed their extreme disappointment in the club's performances this year, on Saturday they showed that through it all they still had the utmost respect for Klopp and his achievements with Dortmund. On the final day of the season, Dortmund fans showed their support for Klopp the best way they know how, with an incredible, massive sign via the 'Yellow Wall' that simply read "danke Jurgen."
While Klopp will no longer be on Dortmund's touchline, he seemingly be forever in the hearts of fans at the Signal Iduna Park. (H/T: Bleacher Report)

We've already posted a pretty impressive one-handed grab today, but we think we may have somehow found one that's even better. During a game between the St. Paul Saints and the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball, a fan managed to snag a stray bat that was accidentaly hurled into the crowd by the batter. Apparently Harvard is also a world leader at churning out beauts who can make one-handed snags while maintaining enough concentration to hold onto their beer. This gentleman needs to give this fan from a few weeks ago a little tutoring...ASAP. (H/T: Bro Bible)

Pretty much every single one-handed catch that occurs from this point to the end of time will be compared to Odell Beckham Jr.'s. However, it would be a mistake to compare this one-handed grab by Marco Wilson, and 11th grader from South Florida, to Odell's, because it's kind of a false equivalent. It wasn't made during a game, but also because based purely on athleticism alone, it's clearly better.
So there it is, the recipe for how to top the greatest one-handed catch of all-time...add in a backflip. One part Odell, second part Jerome Simpson, leading to to plenty of this...

How do you defeat a 7-foot tall heavyweight who weighs in at over 280 pounds of pure muscle? We don't know and apparently undefeated heavyweight Taishan Dong's opponents don't know either. In the first round of his bout Friday, Taishan threw a haymaker punch and it was lights out for his opponent Lance Gauch. Judging by how Gauch went down, getting hit by Taishan's right hand is the equivalent of this. (H/T: Deadspin)

Andrew Shaw's ridiculously wicked header goal may not have counted as the double-OT winner in Game 2 of the Western Conference Final, but it was deemed good for one gift package from Chicago's MLS team, the Fire. Friday, Shaw posted a picture of the gifts the Fire sent him on his Twitter page.
Although Shaw's goal was waved out and didn't count, it's pretty fair to say that it's been one of the most memorable goals of the playoffs thus far. We most certainly will never forget it.
