Swimsuit Week Begins

The Swimsuit Issue hits newsstands this week, so I will be filling in for Andy as he gallivants around with the models. Check out his diary of the lead-up to the launch, filled with pictures and GIFs of this year’s Swimsuit models. Also take a look at how Twitter reacted to this year’s treble Swim covers, featuring Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson.


All-Star Game Notes

The NBA held its annual All-Star Game in Toronto over the weekend, with the West coming out on top and Russell Westbrook winning his second consecutive MVP trophy. The highlight of the weekend was Kobe Bryant’s send-off ... The Dunk Contest, won again by Zach LaVine, also provided a million memorable moments ... Aaron Gordon is probably a lot more popular now than he was on Friday ... Klay Thompson beat his Splash Brother Stephen Curry for the three-point crown ... Karl-Anthony Towns grabbed the Skills Challenge title for the big men ... Reggie Miller beat Drake in table tennis


Von Miller Time

MMQB has a look at Broncos linebacker Von Miller’s amazing week, which stretched from winning Super Bowl MVP to sitting courtside at the All-Star Game. Miller also found the time to stop by Saturday Night Live to poke some fun at Cam Newton.


Lovely Lady of the Day

Start your week off with Lindsey Vonn, who is featured in nothing but paint in this year’s Swimsuit Issue, as your Lovely Lady of the Day. The three-time Olympian and gold medal winner is currently in her 14th season of World Cup skiing. (Click here for full-size gallery.)
