Glen “Big Baby” Davis has a hunger, and that hankering is to give back to the community. 

According to TMZ, the free-agent forward took orders last Wednesday at Raising Canes—a popular chicken joint in his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

Davis wore a headset and worked the drive-thru window for the event, which raised money for the Glen Big Baby Davis Foundation.

He also posed with fans.

By all accounts, it's been a solid week of philanthropy for Davis. The 6’9”, 289-pound forward also stopped by a Baton Rouge library to read to the kids.

College football is getting a brand-new trophy to go along with the new playoff format starting this year. 

The trophy was unveiled at a press conference Monday:

ESPN's Brett McMurphy provided some more details on the trophy: 

Here's a look at the crystal ball trophy that has been presented since 1986 and will still be awarded to the team at the top of the final coaches poll of the season:

Jordan Brand released a new, star-studded tribute on Monday to pay homage to Derek Jeter, one of the company’s longest sponsored athletes. 

Titled “RE2PECT,” the spot shows a veritable army of athletes, coaches and pop culture icons tipping their caps to the 40-year-old New York Yankee, who will retire this year after wrapping up his 20th season in the MLB

Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and Jay Z are just a few of the many familiar faces paying tribute to the Yankees captain in the ad. Phil Jackson, Jeanie Buss, Carmelo Anthony and Billy Crystal also show their respect in the video, which is guaranteed to leave more than one Yankees fan misty-eyed. 

The best part of this ad might be the grudging acknowledgements of Jeter’s success. Boston bros with no love for the Yankees tip their hats, and Mr. Met might have to go into witness protection after doffing his cap for Jeter.

A Germany supporter managed to attract her fair share of attention during the World Cup final, but an England fan did a fantastic job of matching her.

Wearing his Three Lions shirt, he recreated her pose and was caught on camera in an image that is sure to go viral.

Germany took the trophy home, and England bombed out in the group stage, but this is one moment in which England got the better of Germany in Brazil.

Welcome to the NBA, rookie.

Milwaukee Bucks No. 2 overall draft pick Jabari Parker got knocked down a peg during Sunday's Las Vegas Summer League action.

An ill-fated ascent to the rim was halted with not one, but two handfuls of Phoenix Suns big man Miles Plumlee.

There's a learning curve in transitioning to the pros, and Parker got a masterclass. Thankfully, the former Duke star has plenty of time to study up before the real season starts.

Don't even start to think you can get lazy with your baserunning around the Cleveland Indians' Mike Aviles.

Against the Chicago White Sox, Aviles first covered major ground to make a catch and then threw an absolute cannon to first base to throw out Conor Gillaspie

When asked about the incredible throw, Indians catcher Yan Gomes told reporters, "Hey, scoot over, [Yoenis] CespedesNow we've got Mike Aviles throwing balls like that."

With the ease of filming high-quality videos and people's unending creativity, the trick shot has gotten more and more unbelievable.

We've seen David Kalb hit a basketball shot out of a moving car. Now, he and his friends have taken their talents to their backyard, where they sent a golf ball around a few tracks, through some fire and into a watermelon. 

Tasty.

There are likely thousands (millions?) of selfies that go up on Twitter every day, but few are as incredible as the one posted by Germany's Lukas Podolski. 

Following Germany's 1-0 win in the World Cup over Argentina, Podolski posted a photo of him and Bastian Schweinsteiger on the pitch together looking extremely happy. 

Just try to top that, selfie-takers (actually, please don't).

In the fifth inning of the San Francisco Giants' clash with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, Buster Posey hit a grand slam to bring the score to 4-1 in favor of the Giants. 

That was just the first of the day for San Francisco.

In the sixth inning, pitcher Madison Bumgarner added four more runs to the Giants' scoreboard, smashing a grand slam of his own, bringing it to 8-1. This was his second grand slam of the year.

History would be made with the second:
