NFL Cheerleaders On and Off the Field

Think cheerleaders are just eye candy? Meet Kelly Bennion, a 26-year-old Patriots cheerleader who has degrees in psychology and Spanish from Middlebury and a Master’s in education from Harvard. And that's not all. Next year she will complete her dissertation and receive a Ph.D. in cognitive and affective neuroscience from Boston College. So yeah, Kelly is pretty smart. In fact, she inspired us to find some other interesting things cheerleaders are doing with their lives off the field. 

The Week in Media Feuds

It's been a big week for media feuds with Mike Golic facing off against Bill Simmons and Michael Kay taking on Mike Francesa. Awful Announcing has a great pro wrestling-inspired look at the best sports media feuds.

Points for Honesty

Serena Williams had a refreshingly candid moment on Twitter. In response to a question about whether she's thinking of running the NYC Marathon next year, Serena replied, "My ass is too big." 


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Using my highly scientific formula for finding LLODs, I stumbled across the lovely Malena Costa. I quickly fell in love and built an extra-big gallery to get your weekend started off right ... The 101 hottest celebrity Instagram pics of the week ... WAGs of NFL starting quarterbacks.


Be a Better Person Friday

Every Friday, I try to spotlight a charity to which you can donate. Today, I want to bring your attention to Hugs Across America, which provides teddy bears to children displaced from their homes by such natural disasters as Hurricane Katrina, as well as to schools (from elementary schools through colleges) at which there have been shootings.  There are over 200 chapters of Hugs Across America worldwide, to which hundreds of thousands of teddy bears have already been donated. If you have any extra money lying around, even if it's $5, please consider donating to this organization. And if you have a group you'd like me to spotlight next Friday, email me at andy_gray@simail.com.
