Baseball's $100 Million Men

Max Scherzer is a happy man right now, which is to be expected when one agrees to a $210 million deal, as he did with the Nationals over the weekend. The 2013 AL Cy Young winner is just the ninth player in MLB history to sign a $200 million+ deal and the 55th to sign a $100 million contract. Here's a look at all of baseball's $100 Million Men.


Tiger Loses a Tooth

Tiger Woods surprised girlfriend Lindsey Vonn by traveling to Italy to watch her win a record-setting 63rd World Cup skiing event earlier today. And being the trickster that he is, he donned a skeleton mask so she wouldn't notice him.  Unfortunately for Woods, a front tooth was knocked out by a cameraman during a media scramble after her victory. 


Erin Andrews vs. Katie Cassidy

Erin Andrews received some criticism for her postgame interview with Russell Wilson after yesterday's Seahawks-Packers game, which is to be expected when you're on national television. What was not expected was for Katie Cassidy, an actress who used to date Andrews' boyfriend Jarret Stoll, to join in the criticism. But Andrews had backup in the form of two SI Swimsuit models -- Chrissy Teigen and Brooklyn Decker -- who quickly took down Cassidy.

Gordie Howe is a Machine

I'm out of words to describe Gordie Howe. The guy played professional hockey from 1946 to 1980 (think about that for a second) and was a 23-time NHL All-Star. Howe, 86, suffered multiple strokes last summer and a serious one in October that had many wondering if he'd ever recover. Less than three months later, Howe is playing driveway hockey and feeling great thanks to a stem cell treatment he received in December.

This video would be so much better if Pierce took off the Harry Caray glasses.


Who's Excited for July 4 Weekend?

The Grateful Dead will be playing their last ever shows with Trey Anastasio on guitar. If this were 1995 and I were still 18, I'd attend all three and wish there were 10 more. Now I'll probably watch on my iPad. Anyhow, here's a preview.
