Fighting Teammates

 In honor of Jets quarterback Geno Smith going down like a sack of glass potatoes at the hand of IK Enemkpali, the above gallery is a history of teammate brawls (click here for full-size version). 

This Is Still A Thing

Deflategate continues. Earlier Wednesday, Tom Brady and Roger Goodell went face to face in a Manhattan federal court room as the NFL hopes to confirm its four-game suspension against Brady. Stephen Brown of the New York Daily News live-tweeted the affair. The News also has a pretty thorough write-up of the hearing, and, well, it looks like we could be here for a while. 

Christmas In July

Kind of. The full NBA schedule will be released Wednesday night, but we've already heard many of the matchups. Some games to expect on Christmas Day: 

Spurs vs. Rockets
Warriors vs. Cavaliers
Pelicans vs. Heat
Clippers vs. Lakers
Bulls vs. Thunder 

Looks like a pretty solid schedule, especially if the Lakers are more than a glorified D-League team this year. 

P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Sara in Seattle requested some love for fellow redhead Cintia Dicker. She earns LLOD honors (click here for full-size gallery).

Don't Drink and Slide

Wednesday is the day many creepy people have been waiting for—Twitter has removed its character limit on direct messages. You can now slide into DMs completely unhinged. Be careful out there. 

Field of Grief's Dan Gartland has compiled some (we didn't have enough space for all) of the New York Jets' most miserable moments in one handy graphic.
