Dogs on the SI Cover

Happy National Dog Day! Once upon a time, dogs commonly appeared on the SI cover, as this gallery demonstrates. Also, be sure to check out this gallery of dogs at the ballpark and a video of my dog Larry running off with a jar of peanut butter.


John McEnroe Sings Nirvana

John McEnroe has always been a showman and this past weekend was no exception. But instead of berating a chair umpire, the tennis legend was covering Nirvana at a bar in the Hamptons. And not just any Nirvana song, but Territorial Pissings (one of my favorites). It was a pretty impressive performance, though I still prefer watching him berate a chair umpire. 


Baseball Injury of the Day

Rays catcher Curt Casali strained his left hamstring during a home run trot on Tuesday night. Where does this rank among baseball's most bizarre injuries?


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Jake from Philly asked why I never feature redheads as LLOD. I don't have a good answer, other than former Miss USA Alyssa Campanella. She earns today's honors (click here for full-size gallery). 


Pro Wrestling Meets Holy Cross Football

I'm not exactly sure why but Holy Cross linebackers coach Alex Bresner faced off against tight ends coach Steve Cully in a mock wrestling match and it's one of the best things I've seen all week. 


Take That, McDonald's!

McDonald's tried to charge this man 10 cents for extra dipping sauce for his chicken nuggets. What followed is nothing short of awesome.
