Federer Gets Jordan III-Inspired Tennis Shoes

Check out the kicks that tennis great Roger Federer was sporting on Tuesday during his 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 opening-round U.S. Open victory over Marinko Matosevic in Queens with Michael Jordan watchhing from the stands.

The NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 by Jordan. Pretty cool Air Jordan III-inspired tennis sneakers. They even have "Nike Air" on the back like they did back in '88. 

Still, I think the original basketball versions are better looking, and the Hot Lava Air Tech Challenge that Andre Agassi wore will always be the best tennis sneaker of all-time in my book. The Michael Chang Reebok Pumps were pretty cool too back in the day, but Agassi always had the best kicks.

Alec Baldwin catches errant ball at U.S. Open

Despite recent claims that he was moving away from New York because of pesky paparazzi, actor Alec Baldwin was still in the Big Apple and still rocking a suit on Monday at the first night of the 2014 U.S. open in Queens.

Baldwin, sitting it the front row, caught a ball hit by Maria Kirilenko in her match against fellow Russian Maria Sharapova. Nice hands by Baldwin. Probably not the toughest ball to make a play on, but nevertheless, he handled himself smoothly and was more impressive than Chris Rock's attempt at a foul ball at Yankee Stadium last week.

Sharapova went on to win by a score of 6-4, 6-0.

Dr. James Andrews get his own Topps card

Look out Jose Abreu, you might have some competition when it comes to having the hottest rookie card this summer. Check out this Dr. James Andrews card, which is included in the new Topps Allen & Ginter collection. 

Featuring a piece of a player's game-used jersey in the card in nothing new, but Topps may have went went a little overboard here by including a swatch of the prominent orthopedic surgeon's scrubs in the card. Kind of weird. Whatever the case, Topps has also included autographed Dr. Andrews cards in packs.

Dr. Andrew's patient list is a who's who of Hall of Famers and elites from all sports, including Drew Brees, Michael Jordan, Matt Harvey, Albert Pujols, Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson, Troy Aikman, Tom Brady, CC Sabathia, John Smoltz, Bo Jackson, Sam Bradford, RGIII and Jack Nicklaus -- just to name a few. A more detailed patient list can be found HERE.

It's amazing that in a field of incredibly smart people like orthopedic surgeons, one man stands out like Dr. Andrews does. These players are always flying all the way to Birmingham, Ala. to see him. The dude deserves major props for his all-out domination in his field. While a trading card of a doctor is definitely different, it surely is a cool way to recognize a very important man in the sports world.

MLS player takes selfie right after scoring goal

Take that Joe Horn! Watch as Sporting Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer celebrates his goal in Sunday's 1-1 draw against the Chicago Fire by running over to a bunch of fans and snapping a selfie.

Pretty outlandish celebration to accompany the in-game confetti raining down. Way to celebrate.

Dwyer received a yellow card for his antics, which I'm sure made Roger Goodell happy.
