We Have a Dynasty
The Blackhawks defeated Tampa Bay 2-0 to capture their third Stanley Cup in the last six years. The Cup itself barely made it to the arena on time due to weather issues in Chicago. The victory was especially sweet for veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen, who played over 1,100 NHL games without a championship. Other items of interest: Captain Jonathan Toews has a hot girlfriend, Kris Versteeg put his two-week-old son in the Stanley Cup and the Blackhawks are featured on the cover of this week's SI.
Patriots Diss Darrelle Revis's Mom
The Patriots held their ring ceremony at owner Bob Kraft's house on Sunday and Darrelle Revis's mom was not part of the festivities. Revis was unable to make it and sent his mom to receive the ring. But the party was only for members of the team (and their one guest) so Mama Revis was forced to get the ring from Patriots' offices on Monday instead. In a related story, Revis didn't exactly come to Tom Brady's defense during the Deflategate controversy: "[The Patriots] have a history of doing stuff. You can’t hide that … Tom was there when they did that stuff in the past … Stuff repeatedly happened through the years. You got Spygate, you got this and that and everything else.” Revis said.
Ranking LeBron's Cleveland Teammates
Complex has ranked every teammate LeBron James has had during his two stints with the Cavs. Spoiler alert: Lance Alldred, who played three games for the Cavs in 2007-08, is dead last and Kyrie Irving is No. 1. Not sure how Delonte West ended up at No. 3, but he remains one of my all-time favorite players (for reasons like this sock quote) so I'm not complaining.
Lovely Lady of the Day
Kevin from Richmond, Va., wrote in and said, "Please consider Brhitney Decamps for LLOD. Check out her instagram. You will not be disappointed, my friend." Kevin failed to mention that Brhitney is a JetBlue flight attendant, making her the first flight attendant in the illustrious history of LLOD. Congrats Brhitney! (click here for full-size gallery).
