Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has had an offseason he'd like to forget, but he's not lying low with the fans.

Making an appearance at the Colts training camp in Anderson, Indiana, Irsay began thanking the fans in attendance by passing out $100 bills.

Colts fans were likely going hoping to see names like Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton, but leaving with $100 is a nice bonus.

After being a potential top-10 NFL draft pick at the end of last year, Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota is looking to be the first signal-caller taken in 2015.

And since he's only a couple of classes shy of a degree in general science—with a 3.15 GPA, no less—he has a pretty light schedule this fall. According to ESPN's Ted Miller, Mariota will be taking just two classes: golf and yoga.

Mariota, a 6'4", 215-pound Honolulu, Hawaii, native, put up 40 total touchdowns in 2013. He'll be at the top of Heisman lists to begin the season.

For the last four years, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were having fun playing basketball together with the Miami Heat and taking part in postgame photobombs. Now, with LeBron heading back to Cleveland, Wade will still have an affinity for his former teammate, but in a different way.

Speaking to reporters at Chicago's Dwyane Wade and Brandon Marshall Sports Academy, per Brandon Di Perno and Surya Fernandez of SB Nation, via Stephen Ronkowski of Windy City Gridiron, Wade was asked who his favorite opponent is to play against:


The NBA Summer League is a great opportunity for some of the younger players to prove themselves to their respective teams, and more than a few did that with some exciting slam dunks.

There were more than a few highlight slam dunks at this year's summer league.

From No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins spinning between two defenders to throw down to a through-the-legs alley-oop from Thomas Robinson, there were some eye-opening dunks throughout the summer league.

Tensions flared during a Double-A minor league game Friday night between the Birmingham Barons (Chicago White Sox affiliate) and Jacksonville Suns (Miami Marlins).

In the ninth inning with the Barons up 5-1, Birmingham infielder Jeremy Farrell crossed home plate, bumped into Suns pitcher Matt Ramsey and exchanged some words with him, causing the benches to clear.

After things had seemingly settled down, the benches cleared once again around eight minutes later. Following the dust-up, five players and Suns manager Andy Barkett were ejected.

Barons backup catcher Martin Medina was taken to the hospital following the second scrum after a blow to the face resulted in blood building up in his eye.


There are some people who will do whatever it takes to overcome obstacles, and this woman appears to be one of those people.

Despite only having one arm, she isn't afraid to pull off deadlifts using a barbell. It doesn't look easy, but she has found a way to make it work.

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade may already be 32 years old, but he's still one of the more impressive athletes in the world.

Sports fans will do all kinds of crazy things to show their loyalty to their respective teams, even at the end of their lives. 

Before lifelong fan Terry Siebert passed away, his last wish was for the Toronto Maple Leafs to be the pallbearers at his funeral "so that they could let him down one last time."

While the NHL team couldn't make it, his pallbearers still wore Toronto jerseys to help fulfill his wish.
