Reds Fans Hate Kevin Gregg

I know there's a lot to get to (Deflategate, A-Rod passing Willie Mays), but my favorite sports story is taking place in Cincinnati, where Reds fans are so angry with reliever Kevin Gregg that they started a Change.org petition to have him sent down to Triple-A. As of this writing (8:09 a.m.), the petition has just 206 supporters. I have a feeling that number will increase.


A-Rod Passes Willie Mays

Alex Rodriguez smacked his 661st home run last night to pass Willie Mays for fourth on the all time list and the Yankees celebrated with a fireworks display for the ages barely acknowledged it on Twitter. In fact, the most exciting part of the game was this fan mooning the crowd while trying to grab a foul ball. Is it time to start rooting for A-Rod? These Yankee fans certainly think so.


Tom Brady Speaks

Tom Brady spoke for the first time since The Wells Report was released during an appearance at Salem State college with Jim Gray. He didn't say much, so let's discuss some other Deflategate happenings: Chris "Mad Dog" Russo went off on Tom Brady's father for speaking to the USA Today instead of appearing on talk shows ... Julian Edelman used Facebook to show his support for Brady ... New Jersey governor Chris Christie came out in support of the Patriots QB ... The widely-distributed Vine of Rob Gronkowski's somewhat explicit response to Deflategate is actually the very end of a good rant about how the media only cares about negative stories. Everyone just cut out the first 30 seconds and focused on the last five. (I did it also, so bad job by me.)


Lovely Lady of the Day

I'm still reeling from the hotness that was yesterday's LLOD Shauna LeValley and feel the best way to recover is with UFC Ring Girl Kahili Blundell. She earns today's honors (click here for full-size gallery).

A new tumblr account turns celebrities into redheads and it may be the only way women will not be attracted to Leonardo DiCaprio.

Good interview with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, who discussed his future in pro wrestling and a possible WrestleMania 32 appearance ... Carmelo Anthony will have a cameo in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel​ ... Floyd Mayweather won't grant Manny Pacquiao a rematch, calling him a "coward" and "sore loser" ... 10 MLB players you had no idea are still on active rosters ... An angry Arena Football League player threw his helmet in the stands, where it clocked a woman in the head ... Safe to say kids were in a lot better shape in the 1960s than today ... A frame-by-frame breakdown of the time Reggie Miller scored eight points in nine seconds ... Two University of Arkansas golfers were arrested for taking naked pictures of an unconscious woman ... 10 cars that will go over 200,000 miles ... 10 women who could be the next Katherine Webb ...

Goodfellas Turns 25

There is a new documentary out to honor the film's 25th anniversary. Here is a classic scene from the movie. It involves swearing, so put on your headphones.
