Athletes Who Injured Themselves While Celebrating

Last Sunday, Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch sacked Aaron Rodgers and promptly suffered a season-ending ACL tear celebrating said sack. Fortunately for Tulloch, there is a history of players injuring themselves while celebrating, as this gallery demonstrates.


Help Wanted: Wizards Mascot

With Aiden Charlery (better known as the Wizards mascot G-Man) off to Charlotte to become the Hornets new mascot, the Wiz is looking for someone new to take over the role. So if you know anyone who can "brainstorm and develop skits and videos to enhance the patron’s game night experience," and who also has previous dunking experience, have them contact the team ASAP.


LeBron Gets Noblified

In July, Connor Barwin commissioned a company called Noblified to create aristocratic portraits of his fellow Eagles linebackers. The paintings now hang in the team's Linebackers Room and the company is trying to paint portraits for the entire team by season's end. More importantly, Noblified decided to send LeBron James a welcome gift for his return to Cleveland and it's tremendous. I know next-to-nothing about art but I've never seen the Napoleon I in Coronation Robes by Anne-Louis Girodet de Roussy Trioson look so good.

As If the Mets Didn't Have Enough Problems


The Fans Speak Out

SI polled more than 500 NFL fans on a variety of topics, including Roger Goodell's performance as commissioner, whether gambling should be legalized and the length of drug suspensions. The stat that really caught my eye is how few fans find the "Redskins" name offensive. With all the media speaking out about it, I thought the number would be much bigger.

Ross Matthews at the Super Bowl

I may be alone in this one, but I always enjoyed when The Tonight Show would send Ross Matthews to a sporting event. Anyhow, Matthews turned 35 today so I'm going back to 2009 when he attended Media Day before the Steelers-Cardinals Super Bowl.
