It's time for another edition of "Fact or Fiction." This week we have a woman who instills fear in the hearts of those who don't quite believe that not polluting the planet is worth the extra five seconds of effort it usually takes to find a garbage can.
The trash fairy, or as we'd like to call her, the "Litterbug Terminator," operates in Russia. Hunting down trash-chuckers on her motorcycle, armed with their trash, conveniently placed cigarette butt trays and enough gall to throw their garbage back into the cars of perpetrators.
We'd love to believe this one's real, as even though she is quite a menace to society, she's still providing a pretty valuable lesson to those who litter. The set-ups seem a little too perfect to us, but the reactions she received were even more perfect.
The grunge look's not bad, but her methods may get a cleaner reception if she switches up her bike, as well as her getaway laugh, to that of Pee Wee Herman's.

In one of the greatest acting performances of all-time, Bryan Cranston has done the unthinkable. Looking for a new challenge in his career, the Breaking Bad star puts on a one-man recreation of the MLB Postseason in this incredible new commercial for MLB on TBS. Even Pedro Martinez joins on to help Cranston nail down the details.
If they gave out Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Commercial, Cranston would have another Emmy to add to his collection. Bravo, good sir. Bravo!

We know you miss all of the NHL action and are eagerly awaiting October 1st like it's your own birthday, but how much do some of hockey's biggest stars miss playing? So badly that they're losing their hair just thinking about their return to the ice.
Not really. But, yesterday's bald QB's post
made us curious as to what a few NHL stars would look with a few less follicles on the top of their head. The results? Amazing if we do say so ourselves. We'll let you be the judge.
So, who wore it best? Twitter user "Capitals Hill" made a pretty awesome addition of their own.
At least none of these guys will have to worry about helmet hair, right?

It's definitely got to feel rather unjust when an opponent lands a shot to the family jewels, but not if you land a shot of your own. Especially when it leads to a double knockout.
That was the case during this MMA match that took place during the filming of the documentary "Fight Church."
This has definitely got to be one of the most unique double knockouts we've seen. Although, it's imposibble to talk double KO's without revisiting one of the greatest moments in MMA history.
It's hard to judge which clip is more entertaining to play on a loop. Not so hard to tell which one probably hurt the most, though.

If you've ever wanted to see what it's like to live in a neighborhood that has a bear problem today's a lucky day. While it may seem humorous to have your average bear sneak into your pool on a hot summers day, we'd have to imagine it would actually be terrifying.
These Southern California homeowners found out exactly what it's like to have Yogi bear go pool hopping in their backyard.
Bill Cosby was way off, as it's clearly bears who do the darnedest things. You'll probably remember this bear from last week who was just absolutely fascinated with the physics of a flag stick on a golf course.
With the Chicago Bears stealing a win on the road Sunday night over the San Francisco 49ers, it's high tie we put this alert out: Bears across the globe have gone wild.

Quincy Symonds, also known as The Flying Squirrel in surfing circles, is a 6-year-old girl who is really really good at surfing. This video features Symonds surfing on the Gold Coast of Australia and tackling monster waves with ease. Apparently, The Flying Squirrel started surfing a couple of years ago and one could only imagine how good she will be in another couple years.

Morris Peterson is one of the most well-known and beloved Toronto Raptors in franchise history. Peterson was drafted in the 1st round with the 21st selection in the 2000 NBA Draft and spent seven illustrious seasons with the Raptors. Whether he was making circus shots, hitting 3-pointers or diving on the court for loose balls, it's not hard to see why the people of Toronto fell in love with MoPete so quickly. In today's sitdown with Morris, we discuss memorable Raptors moments, hockey in Muskoka and the best hip-hop group of all time. Enjoy!

As they've done the last few years, the Pittsburgh Penguins players delivered season tickets to their fans. The thrill for fans to receive their tickets from the likes of Malkin, Fleury and Sidney Crosby is one thing, but to actually then get to play street hockey with Crosby is pretty awesome.
So, here's the Penguins very eventful day of being delivery men.
And here's a Sid Selfie for kicks.
