1. Giants Pitcher Yusmeiro Petit Throws His 76th Straight Imperfect Game

Yusmeiro Petit came precariously close to ending his flawless 76-game imperfect throwing streak yesterday when — in the ninth inning, with two outs and two strikes, without having allowed a single member of the Arizona Diamondbacks to reach base — the San Francisco Giants' pitcher successfully managed to let pinch-hitter Eric Chavez hit a a line drive to right field that landed just inches from Hunter Pence's glove.

5. Sad People Who Make Terrible Life Choices Already In Line For New iPhone That Hasn't Been Announced Yet

As of yesterday afternoon, at least four depressingly-misguided human beings had opted against spending time with loved ones or making substantive changes in their lives in favor of waiting in line in front of the Apple store in Manhattan to buy the new iPhone 5s, which has not yet been announced.
