There is currently no law that says you have to hand over a foul to a nearby toddler who was also reaching for it and cries as a result … but come on, guys.
At the Rangers-Yankees game Wednesday night, a couple was so stoked to have caught one, they not only didn’t give the thing up, they openly celebrated and preened for the cameras with the ball as the youngster bawled nearby:
This earned them a tongue-lashing from Yankee broadcaster Michael Kay, and landed the three-year-old and his parents on Good Morning America (above).

On this week’s Celebrity Apprentice, tensions ran high on the women’s team after the dramatic firing of Tia Carrere for her failings on the previous task.
So could the reeling ladies pick up their game, pull things together to get back to their winning ways? And who did Donald Trump end up firing at the end?
No, and Patricia Velasquez.
Sunday’s task was throwing a party for Crystal Light’s new mock-tinis, and although the men’s team members admittedly don’t like to party, they got the job done here.
The teams were judged on creativity, brand messaging and the overall party atmosphere, andMore >
Donald Trump’s sons, Eric Trump and Donald Trump, Jr., have been criticized over a series of hunting photos showing them with fresh kills in Zimbabwe last year.
They’ve done nothing illegal, but in one of the more controversial shots, Donald Jr. is seen grinning broadly while holding the severed tail of an elephant.
He has predictably been eviscerated by PETA in press releases, but defended his actions on Twitter, saying that he was simply taking part in a local custom.
Trump Jr. has not apologized, and has been actively defending his actions to his 120,000 followers, along with gettingMore >
It is totally on between Justin Bieber and an animated beaver.
Two weeks after attorneys for the singer sent a cease-and-desist letter to RC3, the makers of a video game titled “Joustin Beaver,” that company has fired back, alleging that its creation does NOT violate Bieber’s trademark claims.
“The App, a video game, is a parody of the commercial success of the Defendant and any celebrity,” RC3 states in its lawsuit, going on to detail the game, which hilariously included “Otter-graphs.”
By admitting the game is a reflection on Justin’s celebrity lifestyle, the company is aiming toMore >
Kris Humphries heard it once again at Madison Square Garden last night: BOOOOO!
But this time the Nets power forward left The World’s Most Famous Arena with a reason to smile, despite the reception he received by opposing fans, as New Jersey defeated New York 100-92. Humphries played a key role in the victory, too, with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
“I love the hostile environment,” Humphries told ESPN after the game. “There’s nothing better than sending 19,000 people home upset… We love that.”
Kris is also the latest in a very long lien to give props to Jeremy Lin, the NBA’s latestMore >

Roland Martin may have been joking about Super Bowl-related topics with some off-color Tweets Sunday night, but his bosses at CNN definitely didn’t find it funny.
The political contributor has been suspended by the network after his remarks – most notably about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad – were called homophobic.
Gay-rights powerhouse GLAAD pushed hard for CNN to fire Martin. That did not happen, but disciplinary sanctions were taken, and his return date is not clear.
In a statement, CNN said:
“[Martin's] tweets were regrettable and offensive. Language that demeans is inconsistentMore >
His Super Bowl ad got Roland Martin all fired up, but the CNN commentator isn’t the only one making headlines for an incident involving David Beckham.
He may be the most famous soccer player in the world, but that didn’t stop a referee from giving the 36-year-old a red card at a children’s match in L.A.
Before his son Romeo took the field, “there was a penalty given” to a young player from another team, Beckham recalled on The Jonathan Ross Show.
“The kids are 7 years old and [the referee] sent the kid off. And I was like, ‘Come on, he’s 7 years old, referee! You can’t send him off,’”More >
Exposed body parts from the Super Bowl continue to stir up controversy across the Internet.
With M.I.A.’s immature finger flip causing both NBC and the NFL to apologize, GLADD is now up in arms over comments made last night by CNN contributor Roland Martin.
While watching the Giants victory over the Patriots, Martin Tweeted the following in response to David Beckham’s underwear ad for H&M (below):
GLADD noticed and wrote back: “Advocates of gay bashing have no place at CNN,” to which Martin then replied:
“You’re clearly out of touch and clueless with what I tweeted. Way to assume, butMore >
She may not have been dating one of the game’s starting quarterbacks, but Jessica Simpson still made her presence felt at last night’s Super Bowl.
The pregnant singer Tweeted a photo of herself and a friend from their box at Lucas Oil Stadium, showing off her ample…. rooting interest in the following Twit pic:
Earlier in the week, Jessica had explained her support of the Patriots by saying fiance Eric Johnson was from Boston and: “I’m a Cowboys fan, so I cannot root for the Giants!”
Fair enough. But we all know why Simpson is a Cowboys fan, right? Not sure if Johnson would really want toMore >
Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff was the goat Sunday after his missed field goal cost the team a chance to tie the AFC Championship Game in the waning moments.
An All-Pro attempting a 32-yarder should be a gimme, but Cundiff missed badly, sending the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl and leaving fans wondering what happened.
There have been reports that Billy was distracted beforehand – to the point that coaches were yelling at him – and wasn’t ready to get in the game in until the last second.
You can see him running onto the field just before kicking:More >
A blow to the back of the neck is a punch named for this animal.
Some poor guy will officially never live down guessing “donkey punch,” erroneously, on Jeopardy this week. Turns out it’s a rabbit, not a donkey.

Or just check out the Urban Dictionary definition of this, umm, amorous act, which we cannot imagine will come up on any other game show.

The future starts now for Melanie Amaro.
Fresh off an X Factor victory that netted her $5 million and a spot in a Pepsi commercial during next month’s Super Bowl, the talented artist has officially signed a deal with Epic Records.

Mitt Romney appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman last night and read a Top 10 list of things he’d like to say to America. Some of them were pretty funny.
Making fun of his game-show-host good looks, his hair, his demeanor and his own name, the M-I-Double-Tizzle held his own, and got in a shot at rival Newt Gingrich.
