It's National Puppy Day ... so don't be a bitch and click through this adorable gallery of famous athletes and their snuggly pets.
... unless you have no soul.
Kristi Yamaguchi says she was NOT throwing shade at Nancy Kerrigan when she told her to "break a leg" on "Dancing with the Stars" ... explaining it was just an innocent tweet between friends.
Social media went crazy over the tweet in which she told her fellow ice skater, "So excited for you! Can't wait to see you grace that ballroom floor, break a leg! #DWTS"
Some people thought Kristi was taking a cheap shot.
But Kristi's rep tells us that couldn't be further from the truth -- they've been friends since they were 15 and she has nothing but love for her.
We also spoke with Nancy's rep who says the two spoke on the phone Wednesday night and laughed about it.
The boxing legend -- who actually beat Floyd's dad back in 1978 -- was leaving Catch when he made it very clear McGregor doesn't stand a chance if they fight in a ring instead of an Octagon.
He's still gonna buy it though. We're all gonna buy it.
Ex-Baylor football player Tre'Von Armstead has been arrested in Texas for sexual assault 4 years after he was accused of gang raping a woman ... officials say.
Armstead was named in a rape investigation in 2013 ... but Baylor reportedly failed to take action for roughly 2 years. Armstead was eventually dismissed from the team in 2015 for a "violation of team rules."
The 22-year-old has always denied any wrongdoing in the 2013 incident.
But now, McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna says there's "newly discovered evidence" implicating Armstead ... and he was arrested Wednesday for 3 felony counts of sexual assault.
His bail was set at $150k.
It's the SECOND time Armstead has been arrested this month -- as we first reported, he was busted in Vegas for allegedly roughing up a woman and then going berserk on a cop car.
There's only one way to celebrate a World Baseball Classic title ... CHAMPAGNE SHOWERS!!!
There wasn't a dry spot in the locker rooms after Marcus Stroman and Team USA completely dominated Puerto Rico 8-0 to finally bring a WBC title to America.
Everyone from Giancarlo Stanton to Andrew McCutchen strapped on their goggles and turnt up.
The celebration in the locker room was insane ... but the fun didn't stop there. We spotted the champs outside an L.A. nightclub later in the night -- trophy in hand -- and it looked like the party was just getting started.
Welcome to the Hollywood game ... where stars go out to be seen ... and then act like they can't be bothered.
So, what was the endgame? Attention ... without trying to seem to desperate for it.
See ya at Catch.
Who wants legions of male fans?
Jackson was keeping it all the way real about the perks of fame ... saying it can be annoying to have dudes asking for selfies and autographs all the time -- instead of hot ladies.
Rampage says guys like Chris Brown and Justin Bieber have the RIGHT kind of fame.
The good news for Jackson, he has an outlet for his frustrations ... he's fighting King Mo at Bellator 175 on March 31st.
We reached out to Bieber for comment -- but he was too busy bangin' chicks.
WWE legend Jim Ross' wife, Jan Ross, has died at 55 years old ... days after sustaining a catastrophic brain injury in an accident.
Ross -- who married Jim in 1993 -- was riding her Vespa home from the gym Monday night in Oklahoma when she was struck from behind by a vehicle. She was not wearing a helmet. Ross sustained a serious brain injury and multiple skull fractures.
Jim announced his wife's death on Twitter Wednesday night, saying ... "A priest gave my wife Jan her last rites tonight. My little angel is gone."
Police in Norman, OK are still investigating the accident.
What do you get when you bring NFL superstar Rob Gronkowski together with his bro, WWE superstar Mojo Rawley? This INSANE hype video that will make you want to run through a wall yourself!
Gronk took it upon himself to get Mojo rising for "WrestleMania 33" next Sunday ... screaming in his face and delivering some chest slaps.
Gronk wrote ... "He's going to win that Battle Royal for sure!! I've never seen a crazier dude in my life! The man doesn't sleep! He stays hyped!!"
The only question is ... do you think they can both stay this hyped all the way to April 2?
Alford -- who famously picked off Tom Brady for a TD in the Super Bowl -- tells TMZ Sports he was at the Traction Sports Performance center in Louisiana when Brett stopped by.
Alford says Favre didn't even warm up ... he just grabbed a ball and started rifling away -- "throwing lasers on the dot."
Alford says he's 100% convinced the 47-year-old could seriously compete in the NFL -- as long as he had an offensive line that could allow him to sit back and sling it.
He even has a message for all the teams still looking for a QB ... "GO GET [FAVRE]."
NY congressman Peter King says the recovery of Tom Brady's jersey is a "solid first step" in getting back ANOTHER stolen piece of Super Bowl memorabilia ... the ring Putin stole from Bob Kraft!!
The Patriots owner has talked openly about how Vladimir Putin walked off with his Super Bowl 39 ring during a meeting in Russia in 2005.
King says the fact we got Brady's jersey back sends a strong message to people with ill-gotten Super Bowl stuff everywhere ... we're coming for you!
He even refers to Putin as a "thief."
Guessin' Vlad ain't gonna like that ...
We got Matt out in NYC and talked a little Boston sports, first congratulating him on Tom Brady's jerseys getting recovered (Damon had nothing with it) then asking his level of excitement for the Sox season.
That's when Damon revealed his deepest darkest fears to us ... telling our guy he's worried about Price's injured elbow, which reports say could keep him out until late May.
Don't worry ... the Sox are still the Vegas favorites to win the AL.
After The Rock posted a yoked out pic of him on a golf course boasting about his nearly record-breaking shot, we went right to the PGA legend to get his reaction.
"Highly unlikely," Daly said ... but not impossible.
"Now, we know he's strong enough to do it and if I had that body, I'd be hitting it 490 yards myself ... but my motto is, 'I don't work out. I put out.'"
The world record longest drive is 515 yards set in 1974. My drive here measured an estimated 490 yards by the scientists holding the rulers. I failed math when I was a kid, but I think that's kinda close. One fun day I will break the world record. Great day on the links shooting scenes for our @ballershbo. Subsequently, I also hit two other great balls... when I stepped on a rake. Ok, no more bullshit haha.. back to work. Have a productive day. #OnSet #Ballers #LasVegas #TheGolfingBeast 🏌🏾 Big shout out to my bud and the man himself @jordanspieth for my gear 👊🏾
