Courtesy of Deeyung Entertainment

Last week, the graphic design experts at Deeyung Entertainment created a set of futuristic NFL helmets that Roger Goodell should make teams start using next season. The creative geniuses weren't done. They came up with 60 futuristic college football helmets that are nothing short of incredible.

Lovely Lady of the Day

I really wanted to feature Irina Shayk, Hannah Davis or Gigi Hadid today because of the classy yet revealing dresses they wore to the Oscar after-parties on Sunday. I am also tempted to show some love to Emily DiDonato, who is celebrating her 24th birthday. But I promised to avoid using SI Swimsuit models as LLODs for the next couple months, so you'll have to deal with Cindy Mello in lingerie instead. Hope you don't mind (click here for full-size gallery).

The Rihanna Effect

Can't say enough good things about The Triangle Offense blog, which crunched a bunch of numbers and created this fancy infographic to show that the home teams win 66% of the time Rihanna attends a game.

Glow in the Dark Hockey Mask

Lightning goalie Ben Bishop decided he needed a mask with actual luminescent lightning on it. And since it's 2015, he got his wish, thanks to designer Dave Gunnarsson.
