Once there was an orphaned baby pig who wandered onto an Oahu campsite and found a human family.
Happily ever after, right?
Well, yes, but this aww-inducing story gets an extra dose of awesome. Not long after Kai Holt and his family took in the pig, named Kama, Holt saw his new friend fall into their swimming pool -- and immediately start swimming. Soon Kama was an aquatic fanatic. So Holt, himself an avid surfer, decided to take Kama out for some waves at Baby Makapu'u beach.
Yeah, the pig was good at that, too. Now he's a surfing addict. Apparently anyone can catch the bug.

Paul George's devastating leg injury will keep him off the court this season, but he's obviously looking forward to getting back in the driver's seat. George, who has an awful lot of money, decided that, you know what, maybe a Ferrari would ease the pain:
That's a Ferrari 458, which retails for about $250,000 and has a top speed of about 200 mph. George probably will be able to drive long before he gets back on the court, so we hope he takes some comfort from his sweet, sweet ride in the meantime.
Ninja Turtles fans everywhere might have a new favorite team in the Fresno Grizzlies. The Giants' Triple-A affiliate left no shell unturned in its TMNT-themed night Saturday.
The uniforms were phenomenal (the team store sold out):
The mascot dressed as Splinter (with turtles before they found the ooze) ...
... And handed out pizza!
Lastly, what better way to ask someone to spend the rest of their life with you than covered in green paint dressed as ninja turtles at a minor league baseball game? Ah, romance.
Alanis Morissette ruined our understanding of irony, but we know Michigan State misspelling this word on an otherwise lovely new Spartans visual is pretty funny. And ironic, right?
Acurate. Accurate. Yeah, that happened. Let the "My college is so much smarter than Michigan State" jokes begin.
They might be on the outer fringes of the playoff race.
They might have just traded their top pitcher.
But a Joe Maddon team isn't not going to keep it fun. So, as they have been doing all season, the Tampa Bay Rays embarked on another dress-up road trip.
The theme: formal wear. Or, as the manager Maddon put it, "James Bond." Of course, give a bunch of 20- and 30-something guys freedom to maneuver, and they might interpret things in a very unusual way.
Like, say, going with "Dumb & Dumber"-themed outfits, as Jake McGee and Brad Boxberger -- awesomely nicknamed "Jake & The Box" -- did. (Don't they know it's too late to audition for "Dumb and Dumber To"?)

The duo wasn't alone in its silly choice. Director of travel and clubhouse operations Chris Westmoreland, bench coach Dave Martinez and third base coach Tom Foley chose to go with, uh, "camoformal."
Pitcher Alex Cobb got closer to normal, going with a tuxedo style shirt and, of course, a Solowheel. (Question: Were you aware of the Solowheel's existence?)
It wasn't all jokey, though. Some folks just had style:

Who needs David Price?
