Separated at Birth: Super Bowl Edition

Ever realize how much Richard Sherman resembles Busta Rhymes? How about Vince Wilfork and Biz Markie? We have an entire gallery of Super Bowl lookalikes to get you ready for Sunday's game.


Super Bowl Round-Up

Katy Perry announced her surprise guest at the halftime show (kind of ruins the surprise, no?) ... Marshawn Lynch's realest moments, rated in 100 emojis ... Speaking of Lynch, he may be fined six figures for his Beastmode hat ...  Gallery: A History of the Puppy Bowl ... Pete Carroll joked that Richard Sherman should name his son "Little Petey" ... Expect to see some trick plays on Sunday ... Roger Goodell wants everyone to know he's had a tough year ... Rex Ryan cracked some jokes at the Patriots expense ... A comparison of Boston and Seattle in everything but football.


The Five-Year Grudge

Don't think athletes remember when writers trash them? Five years ago today, Fox Sports analyst Clay Travis tweeted that DeMarcus Cousins, then a rookie, would be arrested for something in the next five years. Five years later, Cousins has a clean police record and took time to remind Travis of his incorrect prediction. Travis, to his credit, laughed it off and offered to donate $5,000 to the charity of Cousins' choice. 


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

The Super Bowl is just two days away and I can't think of a better LLOD than Patriots superfan Maria Menounos (click here for full-size gallery). And for the sake of fairness, here's a gallery of the hottest Seahawks fans.


Super Bowl, Noblified

Our friends at Noblified created a batch of Super Bowl portraits that include Tom Brady, Russell Wilson and Rob Gronkowski. If you've ever wondered what Richard Sherman would look like as the centerpiece of John Singleton Copley's 1754 piece 'The Return of Nepture,' you're in luck. 


The Week's Biggest Cheater

No, not the Patriots. Retired pro wrestler Mick Foley tried to pull a fast one at Wing Bowl 23 last night. In front of the great people of Philadelphia (cheap pop), Foley tried to hide chicken wings in his fanny pack but was caught and disqualified from the event. On the bright side, it allows me to link to these two collections of pro wrestlers wearing fanny packs.

Odds & Ends

J.J. Watt has exciting plans for the offseason ... Steelers fans are the most profane of any fanbase ... Five NFL sponsorship deals that may surprise you ... Gallery: Celebrities at Super Bowl parties ... I don't believe Jim Mora for a second when he says his Twitter account was hacked ... Good piece on how the Saturday Night Live sets get built ... A look at San Francisco before the internet boom ... This is what happens when a pilot gets locked out of the cockpit ... One rather interesting way to earn a few extra dollars.


Taking the Blame

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and other Boston natives discuss Deflategate.


Happy Birthday, Kate Bock

My favorite Swimsuit model turned 22 today. And she has a message for everyone.

Maria Menounos Loses Bet

As a Patriots fan, this took the sting out of New England's most recent Super Bowl loss.
