It’s been an interesting week in the world of sports. College football is coming into its final weeks, the NFL season is at the midway point, baseball is over and the NBA has only just begun. In fact, the week was so exciting that both Texans coach, Gary Kubiak, and Denver Nuggets Mascot, Rocky, passed out.
All that action can only mean one thing: more highlights for us sports fans to ogle over.
Here are some of the best highlights of the week, from baseball to the NBA:
MLB World Series
David Ortiz, the World Series MVP, celebrates the championship with perhaps “The World’s Largest Champagne Bottle”[sc:Other490banner ]

Creepy Pierre the Pelican
Everybody rallied around the New Orleans Pelicans mascot, who debuted on Halloween night.
Victor Oladipo Does Not Gets Dizzy
Check out the awesomeness of the Orlando Magic rookie guard against the Brooklyn Nets:

College Football – Week 10
Penn State Punter Flops, Refs Fall for It
Penn State punter Alex Butterworth won a running into the kicker penalty against Illinois with this absurd bit of play-acting.
Nebraska Beats Northwestern on Improbable Hail Mary Pass
Nebraska beat Northwestern 27-24 on a crazy Hail Mary play in which the football got deflected into the hands of Cornhuskers receiver, Jordan Westerkamp, as time expired. After surrendering a field goal to the Wildcats with 1:22 remaining, the Cornhuskers were left with only one option on their final drive. The Hail Mary.
QB Ron Kellogg III uncorked a throw all the way to the end zone and ended up coming up a hero on the day.
Michigan State Center Travis Jackson Celebrated a Touchdown with Humorous Squatting
NFL Week 9
Dolphins’ Cameron Wake’s Game-Winning Sack for a Walk-Off Safety
With 6:38 left in overtime during Thursday Night Football match-up between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Miami Dolphins, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was sacked in his own end zone by Cameron Wake on a 3rd & 10 from their own eight-yard-line. The defensive play was only the third OT walk-off safety in NFL history.

BuffaLOL – Bills QB Jeff Tuel Throws a 101-Yard Pick-Six against the Chiefs
Jeff Tuel, Buffalo’s rookie QB, made a horrible decision forcing a pass into traffic, and Sean Smith of Kansas City returned it 101 yards for a touchdown.
Buffalo fans: if you really want to get angry, watch the middle of the screen at the start of the GIF – Stevie Johnson, #13, is wide open in the end zone.
AD Powers through Cowboys Defense for TD
Adrian Peterson went Beast Mode for this touchdown.
Here’s another angle:
Unfortunately, the kicker Blair Walsh missed the PAT for that TD. The Vikes lost the game on a Tony Romo comeback, but at least it’s nice to see AD had a 140 rushing-yard game and that one spectacular touchdown.
Bucs RB Mike James Made a Jump Pass for a TD
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Mike James had a great game against the Seattle Seahawks, going for 158 yards on 28 carries and one passing touchdown, which is shown above.
Not bad for a team that still remains winless, unfortunately.
Davone Bess Broke LaDarius Webb’s Ankles on This Touchdown
Raiders Fans Showered Eagles WR Riley Cooper with Trash and Fingers (NSFW)
I guess Raiders fans didn’t forget the drunken remarks Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper made.
After Cooper scored his third TD catch of the game, a fan in the Black Hole threw something at the receiver…
… and a fan in a Terrelle Pryor jersey gave Cooper the double middle-finger
Dan Fouts on How the Chargers Penetrate the Washington Red Zone
You want to see how San Diego is going to get it into the end zone? There you go.
Dan Fouts knows how to score. Telestrator dong and balls strikes again.
Tom Brady Had Big Game, Yet Still Left Hanging
All he does is pass for touchdowns (four against Pittsburgh), but he cannot seem to find anyone to high-five him in return.
Look at his face! The guy just wants to slap hands with a teammate. Is that too much to ask?
Luckily, LeGarrette Blount came to the rescue and gave Brady the well-deserved five.
