The NFL season begins tomorrow and The Roosevelts have created an emoji for every team. These are all fantastic, but my favorite is the 49ers, which features Jim Harbaugh with smoke blowing out of his ears.

The jersey mashup trend is still going strong, with one of the latest installments arriving via the courtesy of graphic designer Emilio Sansolini, who created a soccer-style jersey for all 30 NBA teams.

Matt Harvey Finds His Next Target
Matt Harvey has been linked to several models -- SI Swimsuit model Anne V being one of them -- since bursting onto the scene a couple years ago. It appears there may be a new interest. According to Page Six, Harvey's "people" tried to set up a meeting between him and Eugenie Bouchard at the U.S. Open earlier this week. Bouchard's early exit from the tournament made the meeting impossible, but I'm guessing Harvey won't give up that easily.

Road Rage Video of the Day
This video comes from Canada and reminds me of when I am stuck for three hours waiting on the Holland Tunnel. Speaking of which, is there a less efficient tunnel entrance in the world than the Holland Tunnel from Manhattan to New Jersey? You just sit there, inching forward, hoping to advance three or four feet until the next red light. I'm getting fired up just thinking about it. Also, put on your headphones for this video as he kind of loses it at the end.
