Students from the University of Connecticut are preparing to cheer on their Huskies against the Kentucky Wildcats in the 2014 NCAA championship game, but they might want to think twice about where they watch the game.

Students in one dorm have been warned not to get caught up in the moment:

If this email is legitimate, this guy is easily the leading candidate for the worst resident advisor of the year.

After being postponed due to weather Sunday, the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway was green for only a few laps Monday before Dale Earnhardt Jr. crashed his car into the wall during Lap 12, causing it to catch fire.

 

Earnhardt lost a tire and ripped up his front end as he veered onto the infield grass, sending him into the outside wall.

Junior said it was his mistake, per Fox Sports:

He also apologized to his fans and teammates after the race:

Any Team USA Olympian who wanted to snap a selfie with President Barack Obama during their recent visit to the White House was out of luck.

Last week, Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was able to take a selfie with President Obama during the 2013 World Series champions' White House visit. 

The picture was taken with a Samsung camera, which the company could use to its benefit.

According to TMZ Sports, members of the White House staff instructed the Olympians "not to even try it."

Golf Digest caused quite a stir last week when it put Paulina Gretzky, fiancee of PGA pro Dustin Johnson and daughter of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, on the cover. 

A number of LPGA players, including American Stacy Lewis, expressed displeasure with Gretzky getting the cover. Per The New York Times: 

Seeing all the debate the cover caused, Orlando-based photographer Cy Cyr and his friends decided to have some fun spoofing the controversial cover.

Needless to say, the results were amazing.

Golfer John Daly hasn't quite kicked the sauce; and by sauce, we mean Diet Coke. 

The Guardian's Ewan Murray (h/t The Big Lead) spoke with Daly recently, garnering some insight into one of golf's most colorful characters. 

From talking about the Masters—which he will attend regardless of whether he is competing—to his lap-band surgery and sobriety, it's a remarkable look at one of sport's most flamboyant personalities. 

However, The Big Lead’s Mike Cardillo spotted the most startling aspect, and it deals with Daly's outrageous thirst for Diet Coke.

LeBron James dominated the New York Knicks Sunday, going for 38 points in a 102-91 Miami Heat win. 

While King James had some plays that will end up on the highlight reel, the moment above from early in the first quarter will likely land him on the next version of Shaqtin' a Fool.

Poll 100 basketball fans, and you'd be hard-pressed to find one who'd admit to wishing any part of it would just "be over"—be it winning titles or carrying a pink Barbie backpack because David West told you to.

Especially not if you just passed arguably the greatest basketball player who ever lived on your march toward unanimous MVP acknowledgement.

But that’s exactly what Kevin Durant did after surpassing Michael Jordan’s streak of 40 straight games with 25 points or more:

Now, it should be noted that KD and the Oklahoma City Thunder actually lost Sunday’s game to the Phoenix Suns, 122-115. Might that account for Durant's salty attitude?

The Undertaker had never lost at WrestleMania, compiling a truly legendary 21-0 record. It was widely considered fact that "The Streak" would never be broken.

Brock Lesnar changed all that at WrestleMania 30. In perhaps the biggest upset in professional wrestling history, Lesnar defeated the Undertaker, leaving every witness absolutely speechless. The expression on the man's face above sums it up well.

Here are some more reaction shots.
