The Stingray Returns
Warning to Paralympic Cheaters
From the "I had no idea this happens" department, competitors cheat at the Paralympics, and the International Paralympic Committee is cracking down on it. Athletes will no longer be allowed to sit on their scrotums or clamp off catheters to fill their bladders in order to boost adrenaline and performance. In other words, the IPC isn't playing around anymore.
Misspelled Jersey Alert
Stars goalie Antti Niemi became the latest athlete to put on his game jersey only to find his name spelled incorrectly. In fact, SI has been keeping an ongoing gallery of notable jersey miscues for the past few years. My favorite remains the Giants somehow spelling San Francisco wrong in 2010.
Lovely Lady of the Day
I'm a huge fan of Brazilian model Cindy Mello and it's been a while since I featured her. She is today's LLOD (click here for full-size gallery).
Feel-Good Story of the Day
Noah Syndegaard Sprawls Out
Noah Syndergaard has made it a habit of attending sporting events and sprawling himself out on the court/field/ice/whatever. We tapped into our Photoshop expertise to envision the Mets hurler doing so in a number of random places. My favorite is the Muhammad Ali-Cleveland Williams fight.

Cam Newton Dance PSA
Thanks to The Cauldron for this masterpiece.
Anyone Seen a Tooth?
Mike Fisher and Kevin Bieksa exchange punches during Tuesday night's Predators-Ducks game. One of these two has one less tooth than he did at this point yesterday.

Ballers: Season 1 Trailer
I still haven't seen HBO's Ballers, but the first season is now available for download on Digital HD, and I plan to binge watch this weekend.
Happy Birthday, Kevin Nealon
I still think Nealon is one of the most underrated comics out there.
