Less than five years after buying a house, Wayne Gretzky and his wife Janet are looking to flip it for a huge profit.

The couple bought their Thousand Oaks, Calif. house for $2.765 million back in November 2009. Now the Gretzkys have put the house on the market for $10.5 million, according to The Real Estalker. If they can find a taker, that would be an incredible deal on their end.

Gretzky's house has plenty of room. It has five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, and they have put plenty of work into making it look nice. Check out some pictures of the house:

There is also a detached pool house on the property. Although the number of bedrooms and bathrooms in the pool house is unknown, there are plenty of awesome features that go along with it. It includes a fitness room, a poolside lounge pavilion, a kitchen and a poolside dining area with an outdoor fireplace.

It looks like hitting a lot of home runs has finally slowed down Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz.

Although there's no set pace for a batter to round the bases on a home run trot, Big Papi certainly never looks like he is in a hurry to get back to the dugout.

Ortiz has hit 433 home runs in his 18-year career. Based on his latest trot, all of those round-trippers have worn him out throughout the years. When he drilled a go-ahead three-run shot in the eighth inning of Wednesday's game against the Texas Rangers, the Red Sox slugger took his time crossing the plate:

According to Tater Trot Tracker, Big Papi's latest home run trot was the slowest ever recorded by a player who wasn't injured. The 38-year-old circled the bases in a relaxed time of 32.91 seconds, which is nearly 1.5 seconds slower than the previous record set by Bobby Abreu (31.56 seconds) back in 2012. Considering it was likely the last home run of his career, Abreu had good reason to enjoy the trip.

Bryce Harper has been in the public eye since he was in high school, but some baseball fans still can't recognize him even when he is standing right in front of them.

Although the Washington Nationals phenom is only 21 years old, he has quickly become one of the biggest names in baseball. The outfielder won the 2012 National Rookie of the Year award, and he has made the NL All-Star team in each of his first two seasons.

Harper has a pretty recognizable face. His beard and hairstyle make it tough for him to blend in on the field. However, a simple disguise made it tough for some fans to recognize him at the launch of the Gatorade Fierce Collective:

Baseball fans better start recognizing Harper because he is going to be a star in the majors for a long time.

The Masters is finally here, which means it's time for John Daly to get back to work.

Every year, the 47-year-old golfer has made it a tradition to stop by a Hooters in Augusta. He takes his RV with him and sets up shop in the parking lot, according to The Florida Times-Union's Garry Smits:

Daly not only sells gear while he is there, but he also signs autographs and poses for photos with fans. For those who want to stop by, the golfer plans on being available:

There is no better way to celebrate Masters week than to hang out with a professional golfer.

Rory McIlroy is the co-favorite to win the 2014 Masters at 10/1 odds, per Vegas Insider, but one man believes he has seen all the evidence he needs that the 24-year-old Northern Irishman is a sure thing.

Rob Price, 27, entered a pastry shop in Denmark when he saw a bun that he felt had a striking resemblance to McIlroy. Price was so confident in the message he received from the pastry that he bet €1,200 (roughly $1,600) on McIlroy.

If McIlroy wins, Price's payout will be just short of $20,000.

Food at major sporting events is notoriously expensive, but looking at the food menu at the Masters, the course at Augusta bucks the trend by keeping their prices affordable.  

You can enjoy a filling meal for less than $10 and have money to spare. Not bad.

Rajon Rondo should be getting a call from the league office for this epic flop against the Hawks last night.

The Boston Celtics point guard falls without being touched by Atlanta's Jeff Teague.

It didn't help. The Celtics lost 105-97.

Keyshawn Johnson Jr. is just a high school freshman, but a flurry of early scholarship offers have quickly accelerated his recruiting process. The Southern California wide receiver spent Wednesday at Ohio State with his father, former NFL Pro Bowler Keyshawn Johnson Sr.

They watched Buckeyes coaches and players go about their business on the practice field and in meetings. It gave Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer an opportunity to showcase his program for the suddenly coveted Mission Viejo (Calif.) High School standout.

"I loved the atmosphere," Johnson Jr. told Bleacher Report. "It's a good fit for me."

His father also approved.

"Urban Meyer is a guy you can trust with your kid," he said.

Livestock handling is not Mike Greenberg’s business. 

Nowhere in the ESPN radio host’s contract does it say he’s legally compelled to grip bovine udders until the frothy stuff starts to flow.

But this wasn’t a pen-and-paper contractual arrangement. It was a bet between two consenting adults, and therefore it was more bulletproof than any waiver or form admissible in a court of law.

As they’re wont to do each year, the hosts of the Mike & Mike show made their annual NCAA tournament “Sheets of Integrity” bracket bets. For the fourth year in a row, Greeny found himself on the losing end of their agreement, and as such, he was tasked with the simple job of milking a dairy cow on live television/radio.

Ceremonial tee shots are away at Augusta to mark the official opening of the 2014 Masters. Jack Nicklaus won this year's battle of the greats against Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.

All three men hit the fairway, with 18-time major winner Nicklaus last to go. The Golden Bear blasted a drive around 220 yards—past Player's ball.

Palmer, 84, came up short of the pair, but he still planted his ball firmly in the fairway. 

Nicklaus, 74, has won the Masters six times. Player, 78, is a three-time champion, while Palmer won four times in six years between 1958 and 1964.
