A hearty stew of offbeat sports and pop culture.

Sun-Down: Hannah Storm and Adam Schefter share televised high-five over Eric Mangini's firing; Alfredo Simon turns himself in; Woody Johnson shows up at Jets tailgate; 3,000 dead birds mysteriously fall from sky

This morning, Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini was fired.

The news was reported live on "SportsCenter," as is often done with sports news.

But then, something out of the ordinary happened.

Anchor Hannah Storm and NFL insider Adam Schefter high-fived over the revelation. The duo quickly realized exactly how bad this displayed looked, and attempted to back away from the skin-slapping.

Live television at its best -- and worst.
Ripped from the headlines
Baltimore Orioles relief pitcher Alfredo Simon has surrendered to authorities in the Dominican Republic to face an involuntary manslaughter charge stemming from the New Year's Eve shooting death of his cousin.

Simon's lawyer says his client was firing celebratory shots into the air.

If convicted, the 29-year-old could face two years in prison.

Pressing the flesh
How's this for cool?

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson swung by the tailgate scene outside of the New Meadowlands yesterday.

He was not doused with Gatorade.

The Event?
In case you missed it, 3,000 dead birds fell out of the Arkansas sky on New Year's Eve. Scientists are looking into the cause, but I think it's safe to say we should all be very, very afraid.
