If you aren't a fan of LeBron James' "Coming Home" essay featured in Sports Illustrated, maybe hearing it narrated by Morgan Freeman will change your mind.

On Thursday, comedian Frank Caliendo took his talents to ESPN's Mike & Mike. He broke out his best Freeman impression to read James' essay to the people of Cleveland. 

Everything just sounds better when Freeman, or Caliendo doing his awesome impression, gets involved.

Australia were in action against Malaysia as women's hockey began at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The Hockeyroos won 4-0, and defender Jayde Taylor took a selfie after the match, only to find the Queen in the background.

If anyone can photobomb well, then surely the Queen must be near the top of the list.

His body language says it all.

No, seriously, look at the shoulders of New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham as running back Pierre Thomas pans the camera upward in the beginning of the video. The two-time Pro Bowler just can't believe it.

"Flowers? Pink?" Graham clearly believes he commands a more manly room. The Saints are staying at The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia for training camp, and it looks like some shenanigans may have been in play to prank Graham, as Thomas jokes that "they got you so good."

Things just got real.

Earlier Wednesday, a bomb dropped in the UFC world when news broke, per Thomas Gerbasi of, that Jon "Bones" Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson II would be postponed due to a Gustafsson injury suffered in training and that contender Daniel Cormier will be stepping in for the light heavyweight title fight at UFC 178.

While virtually everyone wants to see a Bones vs. Gustafsson rematch following their controversial and surprisingly even battle last year, Jones has been itching for a shot to take on Cormier, who's a former Olympic wrestler and Strikeforce champion.

As you can see from the above video, the confidence he has in himself is shared by his family. Leah Jones, age six, clearly has no fear that her father will take a beating.

The Bash Brothers' relationship has been smashed to pieces, and it doesn't look like it will be put back together again.

Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco formed one of the most deadly offensive duos in the late 1980s and early '90s, but Big Mac doesn't want to reminisce on the past, telling that he's unwilling to mend the relationship between him and Canseco.

"It's too late. I don't care to ever speak to him again," McGwire said, via Mark Saxon of "What he did was wrong."

Canseco eventually responded on Twitter:


Yadier Molina is on the disabled list, but the St. Louis Cardinals catcher was still able to entertain himself during Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

His older brother, Jose, was Wednesday's starting catcher for the Rays.

So, Yadier decided to send his brother a little treat.

Yadier had Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo place two bags of cheese crackers on home plate for his sibling between innings.

Don't mess with USF defensive tackle Todd Chandler, because he is one strong man.

During a workout session Wednesday morning, the senior got his teammates fired up by squatting 700 pounds. That's right—the 6'0", 320-pound defensive lineman was able to squat more than twice his weight.

What's more impressive: Chandler squatting 700 pounds once or Iowa's Brandon Scherff doing three 343-pound cleans?

Today is a strange day for journeyman outfielder Jeff Francoeur.

On the bright side, the San Diego Padres are calling him back up to the big leagues.

On the less glamorous side, his minor league teammates with the El Paso Chihuahuas have commemorated the occasion by releasing a video of Francoeur being entombed in a clubhouse bathroom (shown above).

In case you’ve forgotten, earlier this year the entire Chihuahuas roster (coaches included) conspired to convince Francoeur that pitcher Jorge Reyes was a deaf man (shown below).


After agreeing to a five-year, $118 million deal with the Miami Heat earlier this month, Chris Bosh has decided to sell his mansion in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Times reporter Neal J. Leitereg (h/t reports that the Heat forward is putting his 10,755-square-foot residence on the market for a healthy $14.5 million.

If $14.5 million sounds like a hefty ask, remember, we're not talking about your average McMansion here. Bosh's home has six bedrooms, eight baths, a large infinity pool with a swim-up bar and an island picnic area. Buyers are also getting a tiki hut, an outdoor pizza oven (!), a theater and an in-home billiards hall. reports the home has an exercise facility, separate quarters for staff and unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean, which one must agree is a fine ocean indeed.

Chase Headley arrived fashionably late to Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, but he was still able to make a good impression with his new team.

The New York Yankees acquired Headley from the San Diego Padres on Tuesday afternoon. The trade meant that the third baseman's schedule was a bit crazy. He had to get from Chicago, which is where the Padres were playing, to New York.

Headley didn't make an appearance in the Yankees dugout until after the team's game against the Texas Rangers had already started.

He made his team debut as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning of the game, and while he struck out in his first at-bat in pinstripes, he would make an impact later on.
