Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is a stud—a bona fide, 110 percent, absolute stud.
The 23-year-old superstar put on a fireworks show earlier than expected on Independence Day, as his team jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the second inning against the Miami Marlins. The righty bombed a two-run dinger in the first inning and then rocketed a grand slam in the second.
Wrigley Field got wild, and so did Twitter:
Bryant isn’t quite ready for Mount Rushmore, but the rookie is certainly playing like an American—er, National—hero.
Some parts of south-east Asia could view Australia embracing same-sex marriage as “decadence”, the deputy Nationals leader, Barnaby Joyce, has said.

ESTADIONACIONAL, SANTIAGO – You would never have guessed 99 years of history were weighing down on Alexis Sanchez’s shoulders as he cheekily dinked the winning penalty past Sergio Romero.
La Roja‘s star man was ice cool, dispatching Chile’s fourth spot-kick of the shootout into the net, putting his side 4-1 up, a winning margin, after 120 goalless minutes.
After playing poorly against both Uruguay and Peru in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively, there were worries about how effective the Arsenal man was going to be in the final.
He played 52 games in a long season with Arsenal and netted 25 goals. The last of these helped his team win the FA Cup, with Sanchez only enjoying a short rest before being whisked away to his homeland.
Attacking the group stages with panache, Sanchez scored one but inspired his team to put nine more behind Ecuador, Mexico and Bolivia. His form dried up thereafter, and tiredness seemed to set in.
