Ranking the Sweet 16 Mascots

From The Wildcat (dead last, sorry Kentucky) to Sparty (the runaway winner, go MSU!), check out the above gallery of our ranking of the 16 remaining mascots in the NCAA Tournament (click here for full-size version). If you want some actual analysis of the upcoming games, I suggest reading Seth Davis and Luke Winn.


Introducing the NWHL 

The National Women's Hockey League is set to debut in 2015-16, and will include four teams—the Buffalo Beauts, the Boston Pride, the Connecticut Whale and the New York Riveters. Even better, the players will actually get paid (unlike the women's hockey league in Canada). The season will stretch from October to March with each team playing nine home and nine road games. No word on whether fighting will be allowed.

P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Thank you to Mandatory.com for introducing me to Kristy Streater. She even has a sister with future LLOD potential. Kristy earns today's honors (click here for full-size gallery). 


Being Andre the Giant

CBS Sports has a great profile of Andre the Giant and how he "spent his life balancing the wrestling spotlight with his thirst for a normal existence." Also worth noting: SI.com will have a huge profile of Randy "Macho Man" Savage coming Friday, covering everything from his minor league baseball career to behind-the-scenes relationship with Miss Elizabeth. Stay tuned.
