Late last month, reports surfaced that the dead body of a family friend of New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins was found in Jenkins’ New Jersey residence. A week later, Jenkins’ brother was charged with manslaughter for the friend’s death, but not before someone poked fun at Giants’ longtime quarterback Eli Manning on Jenkins’ page (via Twitter/@Bulls_Hype):


On July 1, after nine seasons with the New York Islanders, NHL star free-agent center John Tavares announced he would be signing with his hometown Toronto Maple Leafs.  Many Islander fans were disappointed, including the (likely) fan who edited lacrosse star John Tavares’ (hockey John’s uncle) page (via Twitter/@dalter):


In two starts against the Yankees this season, Red Sox pitcher David Price has given up 12 hits and 12 earned runs in just over four innings pitched.  In his second outing on July 1 at Yankee Stadium, Price was pelted for five home runs in three-plus innings.

On Sunday, former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner was arrested after he allegedly broke into his ex-girflriend’s house, threatened to kill her, and stole a $20,000 watch. Without even being afforded his right to due process, an addition was made to the “Career History” section of his Wikipedia page (via Twitter/@imjustinsanders):


England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford’s stellar performance so far in this year’s World Cup has earned him a spot in the British government as the Minister of Defence (via Twitter/@Alimino):
