AROUND THE WEB:
— Tim Tebow’s fledgling baseball career has hit a snag.
The former NFL quarterback and current outfielder in the Mets organization had a rare great day at the plate during an Arizona Fall League game on Monday, but it ended badly.
After Tebow got on base in the fourth inning of his 10th game with the Scottsdale Scorpions, he was not only caught stealing but was injured on his awkward slide into second.
Tebow came up lame after the slide with a knee injury that took him out of the game.
Before his injury, Tebow had a single in the first inning and reached base in the fourth on a fielder’s choice. He is 5-for-34 on the season with one RBI and two runs scored.
— Many Broncos cheerleaders got into the Halloween spirit for Denver’s game against the Chargers on Sunday. A few were princesses or superheroes, but one cheerleader went all in with her costume.
Romi Bean wore a full dinosaur costume for the Broncos’ 27-19 win over Chargers and still didn’t miss a step of the dance routines.
According to her Twitter account, @Romi_Bean, Bean is also a sports reporter for CBS Denver on television and producer and host for Denver Sports 760 radio.
— Lakers forward Metta World Peace, formerly Ron Artest, pulled a strange Halloween prank during an interview with The Orange County Register on Sunday.
World Peace claimed ghosts touched him “in the wrong places” while he was staying at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City, a famously haunted hotel.
“The ghosts were all over me. I just accepted it,” the Word Peace told the newspaper. “They touched me all over the place. I’m taking one of the ghosts to court for touching me in the wrong places.”
After the interview was published, World Peace admitted on Twitter the whole thing was a prank.
Many NBA players avoid staying at the hotel while in Oklahoma City because of reports it is haunted.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It’s always tough to hear news like that with a teammate that I’ve played with and been in so many battles with. Jamie [was] a great player for our team and I’m sure he will be a great player for the Cleveland Browns. I am always sad when we lose a player that I like and someone that I respect like Jamie.” — Tom Brady, on the Patriots trading Jamie Collins to the Browns on Monday
HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Coco Crisp (37), Masahiro Tanaka (28)
