Chase Utley owns the New York Mets, according to Wikipedia

The New York Mets' majority owner, Fred Wilpon, has a reported net worth of $500 million.

But on Saturday night, the Mets were not owned by a suit who made their profits from real estate development.

No, the Mets were owned by former Phillies second baseman and current Los Angelers Dodger Chase Utley.

At least according to the Mets' Wikipedia page.

Utley, who has become one of the greatest villians in New York sports of recent memory, made his return to Citi Field this weekend after breaking Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada's leg with a hard, controversial slide into second base successfully breaking up a double play during the postseason. On Friday night, the 37-year-old delivered a three-run game-tying double in the ninth inning, athough the Dodgers fell to New York, 6-5, after Curtis Granderson hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth.

But on Saturday night, Utley's legend grew even stronger in the Dodgers' 9-1 win. Utley was thrown at — and missed — by Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard, who was subsequently ejected from the ballgame, in the third inning. In his next at-bat during a scoreless game, Utley took New York reliever Logan Verrett deep to give L.A. a 1-0 lead.

It gets better. Coming to bat with the bases loaded and a 2-0 lead in the seventh, Utley entered the batter's box serenaded with boos from the Mets' faithful only to hit a grand slam. You can watch it all right here.

Owning the Mets is nothing new for Utley, however. The second baseman has 33 home runs, 113 RBIs and a .283 average in his career against New York. We love Utley in Philadelphia because he plays the game hard, was a key member of the Phillies' 2008 World Series team and he kills the Mets. Remember this one from 2007?

What will Utley do as an encore on Sunday Night Baseball? We will all be watching because some of us won't be able to catch Game of Thrones live because we work.

Remember, no spoilers. And plus, Utley owning the Mets is a better storyline than any TV show can give us.

Allen Iverson breaks Tim Hardaway's ankles with epic comment

Allen Iverson breaks Tim Hardaway's ankles with epic comment

Remember when Tim Hardaway adamantly claimed he was the originator of the crossover, not Allen Iverson, and that the Sixers legend "carried the basketball?"

For a refresher, here's Hardaway's full quote from March during an interview with NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper.

Well, Iverson provided the Answer and it's safe to say he crossed up Hardaway on this one.

In a great piece by Bleacher Report's Jonathan Abrams published on Tuesday, Iverson was asked about Hardaway's comment.

"Yeah, I heard about it," Iverson said.

Abrams asked if A.I. had any response.

"I carried my crossover all the way into the Hall of Fame," Iverson said. "So, there you go."

Mic drop.

As we all know, Iverson was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last September.

Hardaway, a 2017 finalist, is still waiting for his call after being a finalist in 2014 and 2015, as well.

Iverson, always a fantastic quote, gave a speech for the ages at his induction.

"My relationship with the fans in Philadelphia is like no other," he said, via CSNPhilly.com's Jessica Camerato. "Thank y'all for the support over the years. Y'all let me grow. Y'all let me make my mistakes. Never jumped off the bandwagon, continued to support me like true fans are supposed to.

"The ones that stuck by me throughout my journey, I love y'all. I love the fact that now y'all can walk around and stick y'all chest out and say y'all Hall of Famers."

Someone started telling short stories using the names of songs in a Spotify playlist on Twitter the other day and the idea has taken off. 

Kids are breaking up over playlists. Or falling in love, who knows. It's hard to keep up.

Denny's knows what they're doing:

But the Phillies are using it to tell a story about weather.
