Vince Lombardi's 58-Cent Sweater

Not to get all Antiques Roadshow on you, but this story is pretty incredible. Sean and Rikki McEvoy of Knoxville, Tenn., purchased a West Point warmup jacket last June for $0.58 at the local Goodwill store. Fast forward to November, when Sean was watching a Vince Lombardi documentary and noticed the Hall of Fame coach wearing the same jacket. He gave it a closer inspection and saw "Lombardi" written in black ink by the neck. He then visited an auction house in Dallas, who helped sell it for over $43,000. During the same auction, boxing gloves worn by Muhammad Ali and Sonny Liston during their 1965 bout​ sold for $956,000 while the glove Jeffrey Maier used to snag Derek Jeter's famous 1996 home run went for $22,705.

NFL Combine Notes

Jameis Winston's football IQ is being compared to Peyton Manning. His off-the-field behavior is another story ... Combine winners and losers ... Evaluating the throwing performance of the top quarterbacks ... Ten takeaways from the combine ... Nobody had a worse 40-yard-dash than  Louisville defensive tackle B.J. Dubose ... Ali Marpet, a 307-pound offensive lineman from Division III Hobart College,​ turned heads with his great 40 time ... The Raiders head scout used the combine as a chance to take a nap.

Move Over, Kate Upton

An English swimmer set a world record for most southern swim when he went for a dip in the 28-degree water near Antarctica wearing just a Speedo. Kate Upton, who famously posed in a bikini during her own Antarctica photo shoot, feels his pain.


Lovely Lady of the Day

I'm always looking for an excuse to feature Jenna Dewan-Tatum as LLOD and this dress she wore last night is as good as any (click here for full-size gallery). 

Dez Bryant Mystery Video

Word has it that there is a really bad Dez Bryant video floating around that has yet to surface and will have a "Ray Rice-type of an impact." I am betting it leaks between now and July 4. 

Two Memorable Debuts

Reggie Jackson made his debut as a member of the Pistons and promptly threw up all over the court. Not to be outdone, Isaiah Thomas was ejected in his first game with the Celtics.

(Not Quite) Rapper's Delight

I found myself watching some early '90s WCW on the WWE Network over the weekend when this Too Cold Scorpio promo aired. It may be the greatest thing to come out of the early '90s.
