Robbie Rogers has signed a contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer, meaning he will soon become the first openly gay athlete to participate in an American team sport.

The former U.S. national team wing blogged in February that he was both homosexual and taking a break from the sport, writing at the time:

"Secrets can cause so much internal damage. People love to preach about honesty, how honesty is so plain and simple. Try explaining to your loved ones after 25 years you are gay."

Since that time, Jason Collins has come out as gay and Rogers has received support from his friends and family members, along with players in the MLS.

Third grader Maggie Ciara has a serious case of Stanley Cup fever, as evidenced by an answer the Chicago Blackhawks fan put on a recent math test.

The question: “What is 9 times 9?” The answer? Hossa.

Marian Hossa wears No. 81 for her favorite NHL team.

As you can see, her Oak Lawn, Ill., teacher was baffled.

What is this? The best part? After seeing that she didn't get it, Maggie clarified it for her teacher, Christine Mech ... who gave her full credit and an A+ overall.

NBA All-Star playmaker Steve Nash is making a play to block ex-wife Alejandra from moving from Arizona to L.A. so he can avoid paying child support.

Or so she claims in their contentious court battle.

Steve Nash, Ex-Wife

Alejandra wants to relocate from Phoenix to L.A. so the kids can be closer to their dad, who is putting on a full-court press (so to speak) to defend against that.

Nash even chose the L.A. Lakers over the N.Y. Knicks because it's closer to Arizona, but says he doesn't want them to move to L.A. at this moment.

A Buffalo Bills fan recently got a HUGE O.J. Simpson tattoo on his leg, which took nine hours to complete and is confirmed to be real ... and incredible.

O.J. Simpson Tattoo

Bryan Labarron actually appears to be fairly normal from the looks of his Facebook page, where he writes, "I have 3 Bills tats and my OJ is my favorite."

When asked the obvious murder question by a friend, he responded, "OJ was found not guilty of that murder thing but that's a story for another day ..."

Seems like a pretty relevant point on this or any other day in which a man gets a GIANT ASS OJ SIMPSON TATTOO, but maybe that's just us.

The head of the European golf tour apologized for using the term "colored" in a TV interview in which he was reacting to the Tiger Woods-Sergio Garcia feud.

Sergio and Tiges

European Tour CEO George O'Grady commented, in defense of Garcia, that "most of Sergio's friends are colored athletes in the United States."

The word "colored" was once widely used in the United States to refer to African-Americans but it is now considered antiquated and offensive.

As a result, "I deeply regret using an inappropriate word in a live TV interview for Sky Sports for which I unreservedly apologize," said O'Grady.

Matt Kemp of the L.A. Dodgers is doing what he can and more to help Oklahoma tornado victims in his home state, pledging $250,000 and then some.

The quarter-million pledge comes after Kemp, inexplicably, received backlash when he promised to give $1,000 for every home run he hit this spring.

Kemp, of course, has hit only two so far this year in what has been a disappointing campaign, leading to the obligatory jokes and childish criticism.

Until the Oklahoma native, announced plans to go far beyond that initial pledge. Far, far beyond it. The baseball star said in a statement Wednesday:

Under fire from media and fans, European Tour star Sergio Garcia issued a second and far more sincere apology for his racist joke about Tiger Woods.

Garcia made the wisecrack about Woods at a tour function the previous night, and acknowledges his comments were "totally stupid and out of place."

Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods

There is no love lost between the two golfers, who have been engaged in a war of words via the media going back two weeks to The Players Championship.

It turned ugly this week when Sergio was asked if he would have Tiger over for dinner at the U.S. Open. Yes, he quipped, and "we'll serve fried chicken every night."

Garcia, 33, said that he made a "silly" response to an obvious joke and said his intent was not to be racist. But Woods, 37, was far from pleased.

On Sunday, Eric Spoto shattered the raw bench pressing world record, as he put up 722 pounds without the help of any kind of supportive clothing.

And we're also both impressed and frightening. Watch the record be set in the following video:

In other sports news, did you see what Sergio Garcia said about Tiger Woods and dinner?!?
