James Harden is known for his facial hair, but this side profile of the Houston Rockets star takes things to a whole new level.

Artist Filip Peraic came up with the unusual idea of creating a portrait of Harden made only of real hair. In order to do so, he had to "enter the creep zone and ask barber for some hair leftovers," according to JamesHardenIllustrated.com

You have to really want to do something in order to go to such lengths.

There are several other portraits on the website, but none of them are as, um, unique as this one.

Anyone who wanted to see how Florida coach Will Muschamp handles recruiting was able to get a small glimpse of it this past week.

Muschamp accidentally tweeted, instead of directly messaged, a couple of notes that appear to have been aimed at a player (or players) the Gators coach was trying to bring to Gainesville. Unfortunately for Muschamp, the whole world was able to see part of a private conversation.

The tweets have since been deleted.



Remember Jadeveon Clowney’s motor? That wonky, infernal piece of hardware experts groused about for the last year? It's running real hot this summer.

The Houston Texans rookie gave onlookers at training camp a flash of the engines on Monday, materializing in the backfield to snuff out a running play before it began.

Twitter user @CaptainRonBRB (h/t Brandon Wenerd of BroBible) took video of the play. It’s difficult to overstate how thoroughly Clowney could’ve demolished Texans running back Dennis Johnson.

Clowney pulled up before the hit (as practice rules demand), stopping just short of Vincent Smith-like extermination.

Royal photobombs are seemingly all the rage at this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

First, the Queen popped up behind an Australian hockey selfie. Now, Prince Harry has dramatically improved a photo of three New Zealand Commonwealth Games officials. 

Per Tom Decent of The Sydney Morning Herald, "The Prince gave a sneaky thumbs up behind New Zealand rugby sevens coach Sir Gordon Tietjens, Sport Manawatu chief executive Trevor Shailer and Massey University Professor Emeritus Gary Hermansson."

Tietjens, Shailer and Hermansson were taking in the 800m women's swimming freestyle Monday night when Prince Harry popped up with his two thumbs.

Because I'm sure all of you sports fans out there have been paying attention, The Bachelorette finale was Monday night and, spoiler alert, Andi Dorfman chose Josh Murray, Aaron Murray's brother.

Aaron was a four-year starter at Georgia and was selected in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL draft (No. 163 overall) by the Kansas City Chiefs.

An athlete in his own right, Josh was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the second round of the 2002 MLB draft and played minor league baseball for six seasons. After that, he went back to school and was even on the Georgia football team with his brother in 2010, when he appeared in two games.

He certainly had the backing of the Georgia faithful, including head coach Mark Richt, who tweeted out what appeared to be congratulations:

Being in the vicinity of Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera may be hazardous to your car.

One fan learned that the hard way after finding her windshield shattered following a Cabrera three-run homer in the sixth inning of the Jays' clash with the Boston Red Sox.

Cabrera finished with two home runs and five RBI as Toronto destroyed Boston, 14-1.

Never change, Bartolo Colon, never change.

The 41-year-old New York Mets pitcher was caught on camera performing a funky-looking pregame ritual. He was apparently warming up...or stretching.

Or, um, something.

In any case, it appears to have worked. Through 7.2 innings pitched, Colon struck out six Philadelphia Phillies while scattering 10 hits and allowing one earned run. With a comfortable 7-1 lead in the top of the ninth, the Mets and Colon are in line for the win.

The Commonwealth Games table tennis semifinals may not normally draw a lot of media attention, but this rally between Segun Toriola of Nigeria and Gao Ning of Singapore was worthy of it.

Ning smashed the ball repeatedly, but Toriola continued to back up and play solid defense during the 41-shot rally. Toriola won the point when Ning missed long. 

Ning went on to win in five sets to help Singapore advance to the finals.

Over the past decade or so, the USA swim team has become a buzzy subject as Americans have grown to celebrate the recent dominance of athletes like Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte in the Summer Olympic Games. In addition to the celebration of their astonishing in-race capabilities, fans have, at times, marveled at the diets of these world-class athletes.

Michael Phelps notoriously told reporters that he would eat 8,000-10,000 calories a day. It's been estimated as high as 12,000.

Ryan Lochte, owner of five Olympic gold medals in addition to three silver and three bronze, took to Twitter on Monday to show off a single meal supposedly worth 10,000 calories. 

One has to wonder what's for dessert.

Dude Perfect has done trick shots for just about every sport, but now, the group is getting even more creative to take the trick shots to the next level.

Going to the open desert allowed the guys to do some crazy things, like include cars in their trick shots.

Cars and baseball don't usually go together, but the guys find a way to make it work.
