Something went wrong at the Pulaski Yankees’ baseball park. Very wrong. They were set to face the Princeton Devil Rays when a pipe exploded behind home plate. Not just any pipe, but a sewage pipe. It showered the field in water and ... well, you can guess what.

What you missed in the NFL during the Olympics

Joey Bosa’s still holding out, Dak Prescott is killing it and most teams have avoided injury.

The Olympics only roll around once every four years, so we don't blame you at all for tuning out all other sports and turning your full attention to the performances of Michael Phelps, Simone Biles, Usain Bolt and others. But while you were watching the action in Rio for more than half of August, NFL training camp and preseason got into full swing.

There have been breakout rookies, some...

'Star Wars,' 'Talespin' mash up is what your nostalgic heart has been hoping for

May the Baloo be with you.

Kids of the '90s will probably remember the short-lived Disney cartoon series Talespin, which depicted Baloo the Bear from The Jungle Book as a 1930s pilot in the Pacific Islands. Even though the series didn't last, its catchy theme song embedded itself in our minds — and it happens to mash up quite nicely with Star Wars footage.

Han Solo and Baloo do seem to have a lot in common.

It's probably good that "Hungry Hungry Humans" isn't an Olympic sport.

The Final Five, fresh off their Olympic gymnastics victory spree, stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday to play the "Hungry Hungry Hippos"-esque game, which involves a lot of humans trying to capture balls with giant cups as they're hoisted up by their teammates.

Oh, uh, Donald Glover was also there, but he seemed to understand he paled in comparison to Simone Biles and America's favorite squad.
