Drake is still out here talking trash to John Wall

Drake is still out here talking trash to John Wall

If you listen to Drake, it won't surprise you that he is rehashing old lines again. 

The musician/actor/brand embassador/surprisingly good SNL host was courtside in Toronto for Game 2 of the Wizards vs. Raptors first-round NBA Playoff series because he is Drake and he's basically allowed to do whatever he wants at Raptors games.

And as was the case in Game 1, Drake found John Wall for some friendly trash talk. You know, because John Wall went to Kentucky and Drake fancies himself an unofficial Kentucky Wildcasts basketball alumnus. 

You can clearly hear him calling out to Wall, who is not paying attention, presumably because he's in the middle of an NBA playoff game. 

He will presumably do it again in a potential Game 5 or 7.

It's what he does.

Bryce Harper's broken-bat home run is comically absurd

It's already been quite an evening for Bryce Harper Lore. 

While it's probably easiest for Harper to hit home runs with regulation size baseball bats, he proved tonight that it's not totally necessary. 

In the 1st inning of the Nats game against the Mets on Monday night, Harper hit this shot: 

Why yes, that is like 90 percent of the baseball bat snapping off the handle upon impact. No matter, however, as Harper was still able place the ball 406 feet into the seats at Shea Stadium. Here's a slower look at the swing:

Absurd. So absurd.

Linesman leaves game after suffering gruesome knee injury

Linesman leaves game after suffering gruesome knee injury

Owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww ow ow ow ow. 

As the second period of Game 2 wrapped up on Sunday night, a linesman suffered a gross-looking knee injury after falling to the ice:

His legs get all types of twisted, and the way his knee buckles doesn't bode well for a quick return. 

Knee injuries: pretty gross!
