Chvrches dedicated their song "Under the Tide" to Harambe while a Red Sox fan ran on the field in a "Harambe 69 Jersey" at Fenway Park on Sunday night:

Done in loving memory of Harambe #RIP

A video posted by Barstool Sports (@barstoolsports) on



Not to be outdone though, an awesome Cincinnati school has made Harambe their new mascot for the football team, and decided to dance and drag a kid around during a game to celebrate "Harambe style" in front of a ton of soccer moms to glorious extent:



I don't know who made the final decision on this one--in the town that Harambe died in--but these kids kick serious ass for going this far!




Never change, you crazy gorilla-loving bastards. Never change.




Mockery can't take the class out of this sorority after MLB announcers notice their selfies.

Looks like they had good parents after all.

After a video went viral yesterday of MLB announcers mocking sorority girls ignoring a baseball game to take selfies, the Arizona Diamondbacks wanted to make things good with the women of Alpha Chi Omega.

They offered the sorority free tickets to an upcoming game in hopes of making everything square, showing there were no hard feelings.

In a classy response, the sorority publicly thanked the organization, but said the tickets would be better used for a charity. They also brought attention to the fact that October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and invited people to donate toward protecting families.

Alpha Chi Omega at Arizona State University would like to thank the Arizona Diamondbacks and Fox Sports for reaching out...

Just a perfect response.

But also, ladies, we all know that selfies have killed more people than sharks this year. So, please capture your experiences responsibly.

Did you watch the final game of the World Series? No? Well, aside from knowing that the San Francisco Giants beats the Royals 3-2 in game 7, this video is all you need to see.

Rikk Wilde is a Chevrolet representative who was tasked with presenting the World Series MVP trophy to Madison Bumgarner. And to talk about… "technology and stuff."

A fitting end to the illustrious career of a baseball icon. Even as a die-hard Red Sox fan, you may hate Jeter's guts. But dammit, you've still got to respect him.

A fan caught on camera sleeping during a New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox game in April has filed a defamation lawsuit against Major League Baseball, the Yankees, ESPN and the game's two announcers (John Kruk and Dan Shulman),according to The Courthouse News Service.

Andrew Robert Rector, in a lawsuit filed in Bronx Supreme Court, lays out why he felt he was defamed after images of him nodding off at Yankee Stadium on April 13 were broadcast.

"In the course of watching the game plaintiff napped and this opened unending verbal crusade against the napping plaintiff," the complaint stated.

There are a lot of good first pitches out there, but this one has to be the most heartwarming.

Bartolo Colón Made His New York Mets Debut. Here is His Ridiculous Batting Stance.

Colón is a pitcher and never had to bat because he played in the American League where they use a Designated Hitter. Now that Colón is in the National League, where pitchers bat, we get to watch the 40 year old strut his stuff.

Major League Baseball All-Star Game MVP Melky Cabrera is the most recent recipient of a 50-game ban handed down by the league office, after testing positive for testosterone -- a no-no under the league's performance enhancing drug policy. Normally that's where the story ends, barring appeals. However, the New York Daily News has discovered a bizarre plot -- one that would make Albert Belle's Cleveland Indians proud.

Melky and his "associates" concocted a website which sold a fake product containing a banned substance, which Cabrera unknowingly purchased and used. Cabrera presented this as evidence at his appeal hearing, and probably thought he was home free. That is, until some very obvious subjects were addressed:

MLB's department of investigations quickly began asking questions about the website and the "product" — Where was the site operating from? Who owned it? What kind of product was it? — and quickly discovered that an existing website had been altered, adding an ad for the product, a topical cream, that didn't exist.

The comedy of errors now involves the FDA, an investigation into Cabrera's "associates", and (what we can all assume) an unlikely repealing of the suspension.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is best known for his musings on the space program, going to Mars, and James Cameron's issues with starmaps.

But during last night's Major League Baseball All-Star Game, he shifted gears and instead commented on the big questions -- you know, things like "Why is it called the foul pole when it's fair territory?" and "How much force does it take to throw a 100 mph fastball?"

Like most of deGrasse Tyson's everything, it was both informative and awesome.

[thanks, nick!]

"That's the loudest noise I've ever heard. I thought Jesus was comin!" Twins outfielder Denard Span tweeted.

Span was of course referring to Sunday afternoon's Thunderclap From Hell during the top of the fourth inning against the Rangers -- it so terrified teammate Josh Willingham that he dropped to all fours. (Watch for him, he's the runner on first.)

Everyone else on the field was content to run screaming for the dugout, and the game was delayed for 45 minutes.
