Those Crazy Seahawks Fans

Bill VandenBush :: @minakimes/Twitter

I pour through hundreds of sports photos a day and long admired this Seahawks fan who has the team's logo embedded on his tooth. Sure, anyone can get a sports-related tattoos as a permanent reminder of their allegiance, but getting it on your tooth is a level I hadn't seen before. Until now. Bill VandenBush, who lost his right eye in 1969 while serving in Vietnam, was given a prosthetic eye with a Seahawks logo for his 10th wedding anniversary.

I Am Stephon Marbury

​More details have emerged about I Am Stephon Marbury, the theatrical play in China inspired by the Coney Island native. Dress rehearsals began this week and the play will include dancing, cheerleading and this impressive display of basketball handles. And it's just the beginning. There are reports from Chinese media that after his play, Marbury will also star in a TV series titled “New Yorker in Beijing.” 

Drew Brees on Vasectomies

After the birth of his fourth child on Monday, Drew Brees had a great response when asked about vasectomies. "I’ve been told by those who have experienced it, do it Saturday before the final round of The Masters so I’ve got an excuse to sit around and watch it.”

Lovely Lady of the Day

Doug in Toronto requested Daniela Freitas as a LLOD candidate. It's a great choice. I can't believe I had never considered her (click here for full-size gallery).

Sochi. Six Months Later

Remember how everyone feared Sochi would turn into a ghost town after the Olympics and the $50 billion invested in the city would go to waste? That appears to be exactly what's happening, as these photos demonstrate.

Worst First Pitch Ever?

There have been some atrocious first pitches this season and this Astros fan threw the worst of them all.
