Fashion at the NBA Playoffs

I can't stop looking at the overalls/rolled-up pants outfit Dwyane Wade wore to Sunday's Heat-Nets game. Here's a look at some other fashionable looks from the NBA playoffs.

I Love David Ortiz, But...

As a native Bostonian (Framingham to be exact), I love David Ortiz for all the great things he's done for the Red Sox. As a baseball fan, I think it's time for him to stop complaining. His latest rant was aimed at the official scorer of Saturday's Red Sox-Rangers game, in which Ortiz broke up Yu Darvish's no-hit bid with a two-out, ninth inning single. Ortiz believes a seventh-inning pop-up to shallow right that fell between two fielders  should've counted as a hit because nobody made a fielding error. The scorer ruled it as an error because in his opinion the ball should've been caught. Ortiz, in case you forgot, famously interrupted Terry Francona's postgame press conference after a 2011 game because he was upset a scorer changed his two-RBI single to an error with no RBIs.

My Favorite Story of the Day

Angela Rypien, the daughter of  former Redskins QB Mark Rypien, plays in the Lingerie Football League and got chewed out by her coach for not hustling off the field. Someone is taking lingerie football a little too seriously.

Lovely Lady Of The Day

Katelynn Ansari is a Def Leppard fan. She also has a great Instagram account you should be following ... Robyn Lawley is the latest model to visit the SI office for a 2015 Swimsuit audition ... Congrats to Brittney Palmer on her wedding.

Def Leppard vs. Bon Jovi

Quick tangent: my predecessor, Jimmy, lived and died for Bon Jovi. Seeing Katelynn in that Def Leppard t-shirt reminded me of a debate we often had about the two bands. I think Def Leppard is much better than Bon Jovi. Jimmy thinks the opposite. What do you think?  Email me (andy_gray@simail.com) and I'll post some of the best responses.
