NYM 8 - 3 FINAL CHC
I Feel your Pain Cubbie Fans!
The Mets had a fantastic time celebrating their NLCS sweep
The Mets were one strike away from sweeping the Cubs. Jeurys Familia had battled Dexter Fowler through eight pitches when he reared back, launched a 98-mph fastball and then …
The Mets clinched the NLCS with an 8-3 victory and were headed to the World Series. Commence the losing of the minds:
It'd been 15 years since the team celebrated an NLCS victory, but it's not exactly rocket science. You simply go nuts.
Terry Collins made sure to thank the fans who came out to Wrigley...
Some of whom brought a flag that probably looked a bit too familiar to the Cubs.
No one had ever homered in six consecutive postseason games ... until Daniel Murphy
On Wednesday, however -- in Game 4 of the NLCS -- Murphy did what Ruth and Aaron and Beltran couldn't do.
In a streak that dates back to Game 4 of the NLDS against the Dodgers, Murphy has homered in every single postseason game. On Wednesday, his two-run shot provided some insurance runs for the Queens ballclub -- lifting the score to 8-1:
And, considering the goat that allegedly cursed the Cubs was named "Murphy," maybe we shouldn't be all that surprised?
The Mets ultimately won the matchup, 8-3, clinching the National League pennant in the process.
Tommy La Stella's foul ball took a Rube Goldberg ricochet and nailed Miguel Montero
The Cubs and Mets teamed up to build one during Wednesday's Game 4 in Wrigley Field -- even if not everyone was in on it. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Tommy La Stella lined Addison Reed's fastball back into Travis d'Arnaud's mask.
But the ball didn't stop there. It then ricocheted directly into Miguel Montero's helmet while he was warming up in the on-deck circle. That's not how reality works. That's how "Home Alone" works.
David Ross was anxious to get to his at-bat, so he tried to end an inning early
Bartolo Colon pitched in his first Championship Series in nearly 20 years … and got the win

In honor of the Royals, Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar reached base on a swinging bunt
With two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning of Wednesday's Game 5, Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar didn't exactly bunt -- although, the result was essentially the same:
It wasn't technically a bunt, but the Rogers Centre turf slowed the ball down enough to ensure that Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez had no play. Ultimately, Pillar's speed was just too much to catch up with.
Little Ferris Bueller plays hooky to watch Jose Bautista try to hit an ALCS home run
Jose Bautista and the Blue Jays already have a few monster home runs and epic innings under their belts, but it's going to take more of the same to get them past the Royals as Kansas City held a 3-1 series lead heading into Game 5 of the ALCS on Wednesday.
Blue Jays fans were doing their part, though, turning out to pack Rogers Centre and cheer on Joey Bats and Co. regardless of any prior obligations they may have arranged for themselves. One young fan even fancied himself a Ferris Bueller, skipping school to attend Game 5 and (hopefully) get to witness Joey Bats go yard.
Thank You #MLB

Alaska Airlines Drum Circle are Cool, with Russell Wilson Commercial
Jim Harbaugh is amazing. He can turn the most mundane event into entertainment. Like shaking Derek Jeter’s hand on the field before the Wolverines take on BYU. That should have been a nice, yet forgettable moment. But Harbaugh spiced it up by coughing into his hand right before the physical contact.
Jeter, as you’d expect, handled it with amazing class, leadership and dignity.
NFL Still Thinks Tom Brady Is Going to Serve a 4-Game Suspension This Season
Tom Brady has thrown for 377 yards and 3.5 touchdowns a game while completing 69% of his passes through the first two weeks of the NFL season. That’s a lot better than the zeros he would have posted if he were spending the first month of the season suspended over #DeflateGate and the resulting “cover-up.” On September 3rd, Judge Richard Berman overturned the NFL’s suspension of Brady. The NFL immediately appealed and are currently waiting for that process to play out. While they wait, they’re apparently telling people that Brady is totally going to serve that suspension. THIS SEASON. Via CBS New York:
On Friday’s “Boomer and Carton” program, WFAN host Craig Carton said that he was with a “very influential person in the NFL” on Thursday. Carton said the person told him “there’s no doubt in his mind” that Brady will serve a four-game suspension this season after the NFL’s appeal is heard.
And once that appeal is heard/upheld/overturned, Brady will appeal. Then the NFL will appeal. Then Brady will appeal. And this will go on forever until Brady dies in 60-or-so years and every team in the league files a class action lawsuit against the Brady estate, asking for Gisele’s money.
Young Yankees fan experiences pure and utter joy after catching Carlos Beltran's home run
His name is Quintin Veletto, from Morristown, N.J., and, as you can see from the GIF above, he was one of the happiest fans in attendance during Thursday's White Sox-Yankees game.
The power of dance helped the Royals strike out batters and clinch the division title
The Royals are celebrating their first division title in 30 years with champagne and bear costumes
When the Twins fell to the Indians, 6-3 on Thursday night, the Royals magic number to clinch the division shrank to a single game. Fans at Kauffman Stadium got just a little excited:
Then, of course, they started making requests:
Luckily, Wade Davis was all too happy to help:
Beating the Mariners 10-4, the Royals clinched their first division title in 30 years. You what that means -- it's time to crank up the Whitney Houston and Duran Duran and party like it's 1985. First, let's get our goggles on:
Now we're ready to break out the champagne:
And ... the bear costumes?
Seriously, if you don't have a bear costume, Danny Duffy will lend you his:
But maybe you should have come prepared, because it's not like it's the first time this has happened:
@Mariners Congrats to @RobinsonCano, the 14th player in MLB history with 2,000+ hits in his first 11 seasons.
Tackling Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynchis REALLY hard. There is a lot of evidence of this on the Internet, like this. But Lynch isn't a nightmare for defenders only when he's running the ball. He also lays the lumber as a blocker.

Marshawn Lynch tells autograph-seeking teens to 'back up off me'
ByKipp Robertson, MyNorthwest.com Writer |September 22, 2015 @ 10:29 am
Apparently Marshawn Lynch has a similar disdain for teenagers seeking autographs as he does for reporters looking for quotes.
A video, allegedly shot in Wisconsin over the weekend when the Seahawks were in town to play the Packers, shows a group of teenage boys asking Lynch for autographs. Lynch, minding his own business on his stroll through town, isn't having it.
"Back up off me," Lynch says as he turns toward the group who continue to follow him.
That's all Lynch is heard saying during the 34-second video. However,TMZ reportsLynch told one of the boys "How would you like it if I slapped that [expletive deleted] phone out of your hand and that smile off your face," after the cameras were off. The uncle of the boy told TMZ he was "shocked" by Lynch's behavior.
Other than the report by TMZ, there is no proof that happened, however.
