Mets’ fan Rafael Diaz just couldn’t help himself on Saturday night as he watched his beloved Nw York Mets celebrate their first-ever no-hitter on the field. Diaz leaped from the stands and joined the frenzy between the mound and home plate, and promptly got tackled and tased by team security.
“I was overcome with emotion, just being a die-hard Mets fan,” the 32-year-old Diaz explained after spening two nights behind bars. “I couldn’t help myself,” Diaz said. “I just wanted to be on the mound celebrating the no-hitter,” he added.
Cincinnati Reds’ fan Caleb Lloyd accomplished something astounding on Monday night at Great American Ball Park — He caught two consecutive home run balls off of back-to-back at-bats during the Reds’ win over the Braves.
Receiver Mohamed Sanu was the victim of a practical joke on Thursday night when someone called him pretending to be from the Cincinnati Bengals intending to draft him with the 27th pick. The Bengals wound up taking the Rutgers product in the third round and there were no hard feelings toward the kid who had pranked Sanu.
But Sanu isn’t the first athlete to be the target of a hoax.
Football star Eli Manning is set to host ‘Saturday Night Live’ on May 5, making him the latest athlete to step off the field and in front of the comedy show’s cameras. We’re all waiting to see if his quarterbacking skills, which led the New York Giants to another Super Bowl victory this year, will serve him well in front of the late-night audience. But looking back on all the pro athletes who’ve previously graced the ‘SNL’ stage, are his chances of succeeding really that high?
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback declared a state of emergency in the wake of a giant tornado, which hit Wichita particularly hard late Saturday night. Miraculously there are no major injuries reported so far.
After a couple poor weekends out of the gate, ‘John Carter’ is poised to become one of the worst movie investments in history. Analysts expect the Walt Disney Co. to take a $165 million loss that will earn it the indignity cast upon forgettable films like ‘Ishtar’ and ‘Howard the Duck.’ A variety of reasons for the movie’s poor performance have been floated — from casting to plot to promotion. Whatever the cause, it wouldn’t be the first time Hollywood banked on a splashy blockbuster and lost big. Here’s a look back at some of Hollywood’s most colossal failures.
She found her way into the ears and hearts of millions around the world with her surprise viral hit ‘Friday,’ and now Rebecca Black is mingling with music’s best at the Grammy Awards.

Groundhog Day was first celebrated on February 2, 1886 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, but the legend of the groundhog’s prognosticating prowess was first established a year later. A group of devoted followers went to Gobbler’s Knob to spread word that the little rodent had special powers to determine the length of the winter.
If the furry mascot emerges from its cave only to scamper back in without spotting its shadow, we should rejoice: Winter would be ending soon. However, if the sun that morning allows the groundhog to see its shadow the winter weather will go on for an additional six weeks.
