Your Week in Viral Videos: Odes to baseball and bagels

(RNN) – It's baseball season, and that's a wonderful thing.

The one thing baseball has over all other sports is the importance of its stadiums. The best stadiums in baseball are up for debate, but anyone who doesn't put Boston's Fenway Park on that list isn't qualified to make it.

The good people at LEGO used 450 hours (that's almost 19 days) in the greatest way imaginable by designing and building a replica of Fenway Park out of LEGO bricks. The model was created to be put on display at LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston when it opens in May, but do you really need a reason for doing it? No, you don't.

Welcome back, baseball. (There's more baseball stuff at the bottom.)

You had me at 'hungry'

Kappa Alpha Theta at Emory University put more work into acquiring coffee and bagels, delivering coffee and bagels and making a video about their acquisition and delivery of coffee and bagels than the 8,000-some views their video has gotten suggest.

It was a fundraiser to help kids, and the girls sold and delivered bagels and coffee "to your bedroom," and they made a fun song letting people know they would do it. It's too late to get a bagel from them now, but watch this video and then go get your own bagel.

If you're not familiar with the song they're parodying, just know that is has nothing to do with bagels (and maybe spend a little more time on the internet).

Sithi uhhmm ingonyama

Did you know The Lion King is still in production in Australia? Well, you do now.

It's branched out from being a movie to being a play and now it's something to break up the monotony of flying. Now if somebody would pair it up with the safety announcement at the beginning of the flight, you'd really be on to something.

WARNING: Science

There is something called the triple point, which is the combination of temperature and pressure at which a substance is solid, liquid and gas at the same time. When you're right at that point, but not on it perfectly, liquid will boil and freeze simultaneously.

Some people found this point for cyclohexane, but did know what they found or what the substance they were dealing with was (YouTube comments were actually helpful, for once). Cyclohexane is used in the process of making nylon, but under the right conditions, it's much cooler – and hotter – than nylon could ever hope to be.

Animal of the week

Dogs have several enemies, including cats, their own tails, objects they are unfamiliar with and couches that aren't where they're supposed to be. The couch in this video played a dirty trick on this great American dog-hero by putting itself just out of position for where this dog needed it to be.

The result is an epic face-plant the couch will be telling its grand-ottomans about for years to come, but the dog got the last laugh by getting right back up and conquering Satan's sofa in a triumph for the ages.

It was actually a tough week to pick a dog to feature because a two-legged dog had an awesome time at the beach. There was also an epic collection of puppy gifs assembled by BuzzFeed.

More stuff for when you're bored

Ceremonial first pitches are rarely great, but when you reunite Nolan Ryan and Craig Biggio, you're expecting something epic. Well, we got it when Ryan flung one well out of Biggio's reach. Nolan Ryan threw seven no-hitters in his career and holds the record for most strikeouts in baseball history. He's on the pitching Mount Rushmore and he's in the Hall of Fame. There's no excuse for this. (Even politicians have done better.) How bad was it? Worse than the pitch a guy broke his leg trying to catch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x30t-lOc_CU

On the other end of the spectrum is the Padres ball girl, who has no Gold Gloves, will never be in the Hall of Fame and had no time to practice or plan what she was going to do when a line drive came rocketing her direction. She just jumped up, snagged the ball, potentially saved the life of a rival team's fan, gave the ball to a little kid and sat back down just like she'd done it 1,000 times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgvO03hrBk0

If you've ever bowled, you know it's not as easy as it looks. Getting a strike is a really good feeling. Getting more than one strike in a row is a feat worth celebrating. Scored 280 out of possible 300 would be the greatest athletic achievement for about 90 percent of the population. Doing without looking at the pins is just absurd. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ex5iwpBHhdw
