Who doesn't love boating to class? The campus of UCLA looks less like Westwood and more like Venice after a water-main break flooded parts of the area.

You can see some of the aftermath below, via BuzzFeed's Jon Passantino:

LeBron James gave everything he had to fans in Taiwan, even the clothes off his back. 

James was feeling especially generous when he was on stage in front of an ecstatic crowd, taking off his shorts and shoes and signing them before tossing them into the screaming audience.

This woman was understandably very excited to meet her apparent hero, Steven Gerrard

So much so that she may or may not want to re-watch her meeting with the Liverpool captain. 

During Liverpool's American tour, one super Gerrard fan in New Jersey completely broke down in tears at meeting him, repeatedly telling him how much she loved him.

Florida State's football team may have been the best in the nation last season, but this year's recruiting class doesn't look like it will be winning a Grammy anytime soon.

Four Seminoles defensive players—Demarcus Christmas, Derrick Nnadi, Lorenzo Featherston and Jacob Pugh—just released a music video for their single, "Gotta Make It to the Top."

The Florida State freshmen (otherwise known as New Seminoles) gave rapping a shot, but it's probably best if they just stick to playing football.

When you think of sports and reality television colliding, it's typically professional sports making the waves. 

Emmitt Smith, Jason Taylor and Hines Ward are just a few of the former NFL players who have competed on Dancing With The Stars, former pro baseball player Jose Canseco has appeared on The Apprentice and The Surreal Life, and former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens once had his own show on VH1 called The T.O. Show.

College sports made its presence felt this year on The Bachelorette, as former Georgia Bulldog Josh Murray won the show, stealing the heart of former prosecutor Andi Dorfman in the process.

Murray, who is a former minor league baseball player and the brother of former Bulldogs quarterback (and current Kansas City Chief) Aaron Murray, proposed to Dorfman after winning the season finale on Monday night, much to the delight of his former coach, Mark Richt.

Signing someone's forehead is nothing new, but it's still funny to see every time it happens.

A Cleveland Browns player took some time at training camp to make one young fan's day by autographing his forehead. The autograph may not last forever, but luckily, someone was able to get the signing on video so the fan could have a lasting memory.
