Meet the NBA's Rookies
The NBA held its annual rookie photo shoot (and impromptu dunk contest) over the weekend in Tarrytown, N.Y., and just like last year, the photos are amazing. Just don't get used to seeing Andrew Wiggins in a Cavs jersey.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Proposal
The Fresno Grizzlies, Triple A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, held Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme night on Saturday that included these amazing jerseys. The highlight of the game, however, occurred between innings when a guy dropped to one knee and asked his wife to marry him. Bonus: They were both wearing TNMT outfits during the proposal.

Bill Belichick is the Best
You may not like Bill Belichick, but you have to love his answers to those press conference questions he finds stupid. Case in point, he was asked today whether Tom Brady could have a positive influence on Washington QB Robert Griffin III. The Pats and Redskins are practicing together all week. Belichick responded with a curt, "I don't really care about that." Of course, not everyone agrees with my assessment of Belichick, especially not Eagles cornerback Cary Williams or this Arby's in Richmond, Va.
