Tim Tebow can't catch a break. Not even in his adopted hometown.

With the quarterback having been released last month by the Jets and now looking for a job, a contingent of Jacksonville Jaguars fans have started a website that urges ownership NOT to sign the former Florida Gator.

Tebow

It's called Evenifhesreleased.com, a reference to the response given by new Jaguars GM David Caldwell when asked Tebow in January:

"I can't imagine a scenario where he'd be a Jaguar, even if he's released."

This kiss cam breakup from a recent Fresno Grizzlies minor league baseball game is awesome. Whether it's legit or not is more of an open question.

You're surely familiar with the sports staple, in which cameramen zero in on couples in hopes of eliciting a public kiss on the big stadium scoreboard.

In this case, however, what the cameras captured was wholly unintended:

More engrossed in his phone than his date (or the game), this one guy got a dirty look from his GF ... then a dirtier look ... then eventually a drink in his face.

And then she stormed off. Funny stuff. But you tell us ...

A rogue squirrel has become a viral sports star for his base-running skills.

The rebellious rodent amusingly and daringly made a move onto the field during a recent college baseball game between Kansas and Wichita State.

He ran the bases with surprising proficiency, but the critter was eventually "caught stealing" by Tyler Baker, who scooped him up in a batting helmet.

No word if they counted this toward Baker's fielding percentage:

Titus Young, a standout for Boise State who last played in the NFL for the Detroit Lions, accomplished an impressive feat on Sunday.

He was arrested on Sunday. Twice. In a 14 hour span.

Young was first pulled over just after midnight in Southern California when police spotted him making an illegal left turn. He was booked for driving under the influence and released a short while later.

The latest hilarious receipt to go viral comes from Vancouver, B.C.

Specifically, from a rabid fan of the city's NHL team, the Canucks.

A picture of the receipt, posted to Reddit, apparently shows what happens in Vancouver when a Stanley Cup playoff game goes down to the wire ...

The receipt, originally for a large pizza for pick-up with extra chicken, was nixed and turned into a delivery because "canucks have tied game."

As such, obviously, "[customer] cannot leave house to pickup."

It's safe to say Matt Kemp is anything but a sore loser.

Sunday night, after getting swept by the San Francisco Giants, the Dodgers outfielder didn't forget about a promise he made to third base coach Tim Wallach.

Moments after the game, he made his way to the first row of stands because he had promised to sign an autograph for a terminally ill Dodgers fan, Joshua Jones.

But Kemp ended up doing a lot more than that: 

Taking off his cap, jersey and cleats, the 28-year-old baseball superstar handed them all to this 19-year-old suffering from inoperable brain tumors.

Rory Bushfield has won the first (and presumably last) season of ABC's Splash.

Spoiler alert? Hope you didn't have that DVR'd and waiting for you tonight.

The three finalists - Bushfield, Nicole Eggert and Drake Bell - went all in Tuesday.

After the first round of dives left Bell eliminated by the judges' scores, Eggert and Bushfield dove one final time for the win, decided by an audience vote.

It was Bushfield, a Canadian-born skiing champion, who emerged victorious.

An impressive dive by the 29-year-old, featuring two and a half front flips and entering the water head first, was enough to seal the deal over Eggert.

Not as impressive as Katherine Webb bikini photos, but close.

Jason Collins became the first openly homosexual athlete in major American team sports when he came out as gay in Sports Illustrated last month.

To hear Charles Barkley tell it, the operative word is "openly."

The response to Collins’ decision has been overwhelmingly positive, but the concept of playing with a gay player is still a major talking point in sports.

Barkley said on The Dan Patrick Show that he has played with 3-4 gay men during his 16-year career, and those are just the players he knows about.

Dr. Phil's production company is suing Gawker Media over its use of an interview with Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax.

The suit claims the company, via its sports blog Deadspin, posted the best parts of the interview online before it had aired in the majority of Dr. Phil markets.

The lawsuit also criticizes the entire "system" of content aggregation.

"A remora is a fish, sometimes called a suckerfish, which attaches itself to other fish like sharks," reads the legal complaint filed this week in Texas.

"The host fish gains nothing from the relationship but the remora is enriched by obtaining benefits (usually food and transportation) from the host."

The 2013 season is already off to a rough start for the Cleveland Browns.

Armonty Bryant, the team's seventh's round pick in last month's NFL draft, was arrested Friday in Ada, Oklahoma after police pulled him over for failure to use a turn signal.

According to the official report, the former East Central University standout said he had a "few drinks" earlier in the evening and needed 10 tries to successfully complete a breathalyzer.

He was taken into custody and released later that night on $500 bail.
