Dallas Seavey has won his second Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race after pulling out from third place. The musher ran at a grueling pace, and finished minutes before fellow competitor Aliy Zirkle.

Animals in the Outfield

Pigs, dogs, cats, cows and weasels have all decided to leave the cheap seats at sporting events and literally get into the game.

Agile and equipped with a great game face, this sporty cat isn't going to let any object past his head.
