The Team That Bathes Together

Connor Barwin and Beau Allen :: @Beau_Allen/Twitter

The Eagles are off to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2004 and there's only one way to celebrate ... Group baths! Well not the entire team, but Connor Barwin and rookie Beau Allen spent some quality time together at the team's facility.


Close Call

Orioles season ticket holder Karl Breslaw was online trying to secure more playoff tickets on Monday when disaster nearly struck. While online, Breslaw heard sounds from outside and realized it was his 7-month-old, 80-pound Burnese Mountain dog chewing on a package that had just been delivered. The package contained Orioles playoff tickets, and Fezzik (the dog) was about to have himself a feast. Luckily, Breslaw sprung into action and recovered the tickets with just a little damage done. Go O's!


For the Drug-Induced NBA Fan

Graphic design group Van Orton Designs created a new series of prints with a kaleidoscopic take on Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and other legends. While we're on the subject, SI once tackled the psychedelic art scene with this 1967 NBA cover and it remains one of my all-time favorites.


Lovely Lady of the Day

I took over Hot Clicks last November and still haven't featured Chantel Zales. This is awful work on my part and there is no excuse. I'm making Chantel today's LLOD and hope you forgive me for this oversight (click here for full-size gallery). 


Falling For Fall

Yesterday marked the first official day of fall and Coed celebrated with the 40 funniest falling GIFs of all time.


Happy Birthday, Marvin Lewis

Walter, Paulina and Wayne Gretzky :: AP

Little Gretzky is all grown up. Paulina Gretzky, pictured here in 1999 with grandfather Walter and dad Wayne, announced that she and Dustin Johnson are expecting their first child. In case you've been under a rock the past few years, Paulina is one of the most popular females on Instagram. It looks like fans will have to find a new athlete's daughter to drool over. May I suggest Josie Canseco. For more classic sports photos, visit the SI Vault on Twitter.


Odds & Ends

I want this Zach Randolph bow tie the Grizzlies are giving away to fans who attend their April 4 game ... Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong signed a fan's baseball and included a Bible verse that doesn't exist ... I don't play or understand Chess, but this seems like a major achievement nobody is talking about ... The Jaguars now have a "Standing Encouraged" section at Everbank Field ... All NFL playbooks are on tablets this season and some of the older players keep forgetting to charge theirs ... A Dodgers fan and Giants fan were spotted on the Dodger Stadium kiss cam and poured beer on each other ... You know it's rough times at UNC when East Carolina is calling the school out on billboards ... Rangers rookie Rougned Odor made it to third base on a dropped third strike ... Bill Murray and Harold Ramis went nearly 21 years without speaking to each other after the making of Groundhog Day ... Floyd Mayweather admitted that his Showtime All-Access show was fake.
