Hunter Pence 'traded' to Red Sox via Twitter

Late July is the perfect time for sinister plots, as has been baseball tradition since the days that "treachery" was still a measurable stat on the back of baseball cards.

This year, it made a snickering comeback. Last night, @FanSince09, like a kid arranging a pencil-drop, or whatever horrifying thing kids do to prank teachers these days, hatched a plan to trick the last #truephillie.

CHILDREN OF THE KANE

They say it's easy to get lost in Patrick Kane's eyes.  Now you can get lost in his helmet, torso, or 2013 Stanley Cup, too.

One midwestern fan celebrated the only way who knew who: with corn. Patrick Kane, the Stanley Cup, and the Blackhawks' 2013 championship have been immortalized, in corn maze form, at the County Line Orchard in Hobart, Indiana.

THIS IS WHAT A CHAD QUALLS VICTORY LOOKS LIKE

Somehow it's even less pretty than a loss.

 

FARGLE BARGLE

There are some hateful words out there, and now the Liverpool Football Club can't say any of them.

It's an honorable, progressive move; if tragically beaten by 'mumbling.'

IT'S ALL AN ACT

Training camp isn't all heat exhaustion and torn ACLs!

The Redskins' Alfred Morris used a break from practice to perform a reading of this monlogue:

"We live in a cynical world," Morris begins.

That's fair. He does play for a team that when it's not under scrutiny for leaving the star on the field to get injured, they're under fire for having a racist name.
