Hank Meets Hank
Two of the most iconic sports figures in Milwaukee history, Hank Aaron and Hank the Dog, finally met yesterday. The baseball legend was in town for an event to raise money for his Chasing the Dream Foundation while four-legged Hank was sniffing for crumbs under a table.
Hulk Hogan and David Hasselhoff In Same Movie? Sign Me Up
WWE Studios announced its latest project and it looks like a doozy. The movie, currently under the working title Untitled Celebrity Death Pool, will also star Ken Jeong as a "struggling nightclub owner who after amassing a large debt from a loan shark, sets out to win a long-running celebrity death pool by attempting to kill Hasselhoff." Hogan will play himself and other (B-Level) celebrities are expected to sign up. I can't wait.

Eight SI Swimsuit models will throw out the first pitch at the Brooklyn Cyclones game tonight (we'll have video of the pitch on SI.com around 10 p.m. or so, if all goes according to plan). The lovely Chanel Iman will be among the models in attendance and she earns today's LLOD honors (click here for full-size gallery). I'll also be tweeting out photos from the game so follow me on Twitter for lots of swimsuit goodness.
Alabama Fans are the Best
Just when you don't think you'll see anything better than this family portrait of Alabama supporters, along comes this fan with Roll Tide tattooed around his (or her? I can't tell) eyes.
Snoop Dogg Does Not Like Todd Haley
The Steelers offense was held scoreless in the first half of last night's game against the Eagles and a frustrated Snoop Dogg was not happy about it. The rapper posted an Instagram video ripping offensive coordinator Todd Haley to shreds for the lack of points. If you have kids around, I recommend putting on the headphones for this one.
From the SI Vault
Dick Bavetta, who refereed 270 playoff games, 27 Finals games and three All-Star Games in his 39-year career, has officially hung up his whistle. The 74-year-old worked a record 2,635 consecutive regular season games from his December 1975, debut through the conclusion of the 2013-14 season.
