Weird Wednesday

Our periodic look at the insanity and hilarity of the sporting world.

And we are back again with more weird happenings that occuring in the (not always) sporting world.  Lots to sort through today, but as always, I'd appreciate any help in finding weird stories from around the net.  We have a few more honorable mentions than normal this week, as a lot of these were just too good to ignore.
