As we learned this past baseball season, the Toronto Blue Jays are a tight-knit group of guys who enjoy each others company in more ways than simply being teammates. These guys are actually great friends with one another and it's clearly evident even from an outsiders perspective. A great example of this is how the Jays spent Super Bowl Sunday. These guys live all over the world, yet they found a way to gather at Jose Bautista's house in Tampa, Florida, to enjoy the game... in their pajamas. Of course, pitcher Marcus Storman and his incredible social media skills captured the festivities on his Instagram account.

Former American sprinter turned rugby player, Carlin Isles, is touted as the fastest rugby player in the world, which is usually a great quality to have, you’re running into a brick wall. That’s basically what happened to Isles on this play when he gets absolutely decked running with the ball by Augustine Pulu. There seems to be some chatter after the play as well, but we’re just glad Isles was able to stand up on his own after being this flattened.

Conversations with Uber drivers are often strange, awkward, yet kind of very entertaining. Whether the topic is life, sports or politics, everyone’s had a heart to heart with their Uber driver at least once. Well this Uber driver has one story in his back pocket that you’ll surely never forget, and it’s about Chicago Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling. The story was posted by Kane Van Gate, who met this Uber driver and heard the amazing story of what a great human being Scott Darling is.

Denver Broncos fans all across the world were celebrating one of the biggest wins in team history on Sunday night, and rightfully so as their Broncos upset the Carolina Panthers 24-10 in a game most people counted them out of. It wasn't the prettiest, most entertaining Super Bowl in league history, but the Broncos found a way to show up and deliver a championship to the city of Denver. While fans rejoiced at Levi's Stadium, and throughout the streets of Denver, Colorado, there were also Broncos' fans north of the border celebrating as well. We saw many fans post videos of themselves going crazy, but none better than this man, with magnificent hair, celebrate wildly with a plush Broncos head in front of his friends and family.
Oh, and one last thing, he's a coworker of ours...

Call this a classic case of instant karma. Sunday, shortly after the Broncos were crowned Super Bowl Champions after defeating the Panthers, Denver cornerback Aqib Talib joined James Duthie and the TSN crew on-field, delivering a candid interview. After complementing his Broncos teammates on playing an incredible game on defense, Talib added in a jab, stating that "Cam probably crying right now," while speaking on the Panthers quarterback. Well, humble pie was served pretty quickly, as Talib wiped out after jumping on the NFL network set shortly after.
Don't worry folks! Talib will have plenty of ice when his Super Bowl ring arrives to heal any bumps he may have received from his little tumble. (H/T: Bleacher Report)

After a 15-1 regular season and two convincing wins in the playoffs, the Carolina Panthers came out and laid an egg against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50, losing 24-10. A big part of that was the Panthers’ inability to move the ball against the best defence in the league. Cam Newton, the often jovial leader of the Panthers’ high-powered offense, made his way to the podium to face the media after the defeat. Let’s just say, he wasn’t dabbing on ‘em. After sitting there for a solid two and a half minutes, not giving much in the way of quotes, the quarterback gets up and walks off. Here is the entire clip:
Now we know that this one is going to sting for a while, but we are hoping it fuels a fire in Mr. Newton, and that we can see him back to his usual antics next season. Until then, expect a lot more of this.

Music and sport are constantly inspired by each other. Athletes use music to pump themselves up before games, while artists will use athletes as inspiration for lyrics in their songs. During Super Bowl 50, we got to witness the two disciplines cross paths again in the Jordan brand’s new commercial featuring Drake. The rapper reminisces about his first pair of Jordans and the similarities between an athlete’s and a singer’s mentality. Check it out:
Drake doesn’t just have to reminisce about his first pair. The guy has already designed his own.

Anything goes with Shaquille O'Neal, Ernie Johnson, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley at TNT's Inside The NBA, and our own Cabbie got a front row seat. Barkley is curious about Cabbie's Canadian fame measured up against TSN's Rod Black's fame, who Barkley has heard is the biggest personality in all of Canada (from Black himself). Cabbie gives Charles a segment idea "Barkley's Zero Bleeps", as he is very honest with his opinions. And did you know O'Neal doesn't need a passport to travel to Toronto? The crew then pick a Canadian basketball player they would mentor and finally, Cabbie leaves them with gifts from the NBA All Star Weekend in Toronto.

The Super Bowl 50 halftime show featured some serious star power. Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Beyonce had the crowd at Levi’s Stadium rocking the entire time.
People were lukewarm on Coldplay’s set:
