Off the Beach: What You Missed

Jul 5, 2011, 9:31 AM EDT

While you may have stepped away from the Internet, the weekend was full of sports news. From fans in Toronto running on the field to the Flyers free agency frenzy, here's a recap of what you may have missed.

Welcome back to the Internet. Hopefully your weekend was full of grilled meats, frosty beverages, and lots of stuff blowing up in the sky.

Here’s a quick rundown of some of the stuff you may have missed over the weekend.

-Toronto fans were so excited to see Roy Halladay back in town this weekend they decided to act like Philly fans. The US Presswire photo above by Tom Szczerbowski shows a Blue Jays fan getting captured in more ways than one after running on the field at the Rogers Centre.

-But not all of Canada is as unruly. These fans showed their respect to Roy Halladay in the form of some humor.

-Oh yeah, the Flyers did some stuff too. Jaromir Jagr is a Flyer. Read Matt’s thoughts on that move here.

-Simon Gagne and Mike Richards will reunite out in L.A.

-Kris Versteeg was traded.

-More on the Flyers big day in free agency here.

-Giants closer Brian Wilson has some anger management issues.

-The AT&T National wrapped up on Sunday with Nick Watney taking home the trophy. What does the future of professional golf in Philadelphia look like?

-The Phillies are sending Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, and Placido Polanco to the All-Star Game this year. Shane Victorino has a shot as well, so go vote for him.

-Finally, this is how I spent my weekend:
