NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman is going back to North Korea this summer, in part because President Barack Obama can't do jack about the situation.

At least as far as the eccentric ballplayer's worldview sees it.

  • Obama Cries During CT Speech

Rodman, who famously bonded with "friend for life" Kim Jong-Un earlier this year, says he will do all that he can to free U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae.

Bae was sentenced to 15 years hard labor for allegedly plotting to overthrow the North Korean government, a wrong The Worm hopes he can right.

"I'm gonna try and get the guy out," Rodman lamented. "It's gonna be difficult. We got a black president [who] can't even go talk to [Kim Jong-Un]."

"Obama can't do $h!t, I don't know why he won't go talk to him."

Police have labeled the beating of Nick Porto and Kevin Atkins a hate crime after the gay couple suffered serious injuries at the hands of Knicks fans near Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.

The incident took place after the Knicks lost to the Pacers in the second round of the NBA Playoffs.

Explained Porto on Facebook:

"A group of Knicks fans were upset about the game and they just decided to ‘fag bash’ the two of us. They called us f----ts. They made fun of my jeans - I made the jeans myself, for that day...

"Fists started flying. I was on the ground, and the only thing I could do, I reached out and grabbed someone's hair."

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.

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 ...

Hockey Receipt

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.
