Off the Beach: What You Missed

Off the Beach: What You Missed

Welcome back to the Internet. Hopefully your weekend was full of grilled meats, frosty beverages, and lots of stuff blowing up in the sky.

Here's a quick rundown of some of the stuff you may have missed over the weekend.

-Toronto fans were so excited to see Roy Halladay back in town this weekend they decided to act like Philly fans. The US Presswire photo above by Tom Szczerbowski shows a Blue Jays fan getting captured in more ways than one after running on the field at the Rogers Centre.

-But not all of Canada is as unruly. These fans showed their respect to Roy Halladay in the form of some humor.

-Oh yeah, the Flyers did some stuff too. Jaromir Jagr is a Flyer. Read Matt's thoughts on that move here.

-Simon Gagne and Mike Richards will reunite out in L.A.

-Kris Versteeg was traded.

-More on the Flyers big day in free agency here.

-Giants closer Brian Wilson has some anger management issues.

-The AT&T National wrapped up on Sunday with Nick Watney taking home the trophy. What does the future of professional golf in Philadelphia look like?

-The Phillies are sending Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, and Placido Polanco to the All-Star Game this year. Shane Victorino has a shot as well, so go vote for him.

-Finally, this is how I spent my weekend:
