Anyone who knows me would tell you that I’m incredibly sports-savvy. Maybe even the greatest athlete they’ve ever known.
Hahahahahahaha. I’m pretty sure my use of the word “savvy” in that sentence gave me away, but anyway, who cares? Just because my knowledge of baseball players is directly related to how many actresses they’ve dated doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a good sports story. And it definitely doesn’t mean I’m not completely impressed with Mo’ne Davis.
I’m going to safely assume since you’re reading this that your first thought when you hear the word “diamond” has nothing to do with dirt, and therefore it’s possible that you might have missed the story of this awesome 13-year-old girl. You can read more about Mo’ne Davis here and here (and pretty much everywhere else), but basically she caught everyone’s attention Friday when she became the first girl to throw a shutout in Little League World Series history. And if that wasn’t impressive enough, she is apparently even better at basketball and dreams about playing in the WNBA. Talk about taking #likeagirl to a whole new level!

5 These paint and marker portraits by artist Antoine Cadet are sad in the most beautiful and amazing way. (The Jealous Curator) | 6 And finally, the weirdness of both 3-D printing and hermit crabs have combined in a project that you just have to see for yourself. (Bored Panda)
