Buzz That Was: Through looking glass

This fan in Chicago sure looks pleased with himself after donning the helmet that he ripped off the head of the Jets' Adam Pardy.

Missed out on watching sports because you just had to see Taylor Swift's shocked face as she won an award she knew she was winning in advance? Just me? Have no fear, we've got you covered. Here's everything you missed last night.

The best in fan decorum

The Chicago Blackhawks hosted the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night, and while the game itself was largely forgettable, Jets defenseman Adam Pardy probably won't be forgetting the evening anytime soon.

Pardy was checked through the glass late in the third period and a fight naturally broke out. As he was leaning into the stands, a gutsy -- or just really drunk -- fan grabbed Pardy's helmet and put it on his own head. And before Pardy even had a chance to take it back, another fan then came and dumped her beer on Pardy's head. He reportedly also lost his stick somewhere in the fray. WOMP, WOMP. Talk about a Pardy foul! Amirite? I'll stop here.

Public service announcement: If you're trying to steal something, don't instantly, you know, put it on and basically say, "Look at this awesome thing on my head that I just stole!" Be cool, man. Be cool.

Never too early to overreact

The Indiana Pacers improved to a surprising 5-0 Wednesday night as they easily defeated the Chicago Bulls, 97-80. Paul George led the charge with 21 points and six boards. The Pacers are the league's last unbeaten team and will look to tie a franchise record with a 6-0 record on Friday against the Toronto Raptors.

Twitter, of course, decided five games into an 82-game regular season was the perfect time to crown the year's MVP. Even some of his teammates supported the cause. Congratulations, Paul! This counts for ... absolutely nothing at this point in time.

Aw, that's sweet

As every college football fan knows, No. 12 LSU heads to Tuscaloosa this weekend to take on No. 1 Alabama in an SEC showdown. This weekend also happens to be Tigers head coach Les Miles' birthday. We can all take a guess on what he's hoping for this year.

In his honor, the team -- or a dedicated football office admin -- brought in a cake on Wednesday to celebrate. While there is absolutely no chance Miles took the time to eat this cake, nor to play "duck, duck goose" or hit the piñata, it's the thought that counts.

Somewhere out there, probably locked in his office watching film and praying to the man below, Nick Saban is looking at pictures of this cake and studying just exactly how his team can make him a better one for his birthday.

Hair we go

Pistons center Andre Drummond shaved his hair off Wednesday night and posted the whole thing on Instagram. And that just about sums up the night in sports and social media.
