Dogs in Costume

The best thing about Halloween is half-naked girls dogs in costumes. Lucky for us, photographers captured all the action at the annual Tompkins Square Halloween Dog Parade in Manhattan and the Growl-a ween Parade in Old Town in Pasadena. My favorites are the bikini (No. 3), Woof of Wall Street (No. 14) and Mailman (No. 25). Karl Malone would be proud.

Tom Brady is Ready for NBA Season

Tom Brady on Facebook has become as interesting as his wife on Instagram (maybe not, actually). To celebrate the start of the NBA season, the Patriots QB posted this photo of himself as a 12-year-old Celtics fan. I have no idea what (besides the headband) is photoshopped and I don't really care.
