Athletes and Their Dogs

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is dominating dog-related headlines and apparently a beautiful German shepherd named Rumor is a crowd favorite. That’s good enough reason for us to dust off our Athletes And Their Dogs gallery (see above and click here for the full-size version). The Westminster show isn't for everyone but it does attract many of the same folks whose heads explode when combining puppies and sports, such as when the Baltimore Ravens released this holiday puppy video in December, or when the Washington Capitals created a puppy calendar for charity in 2014 or when Gronk simply held a little rascal last February.


Money Talks

Money buys happiness, right? Roger Goodell made an unbelievable $34.1 million in 2014 and Kobe Bryant leads the NBA's most expensive players per minute. Also, here is how much money Kanye West will lose by streaming his album on Tidal. Bill Gates is once again the richest person on the planet and Taylor Swift littered a Grammy's party bus with confetti and cash.


Death, Taxes & Football

This is very interesting/unfortunate: A high school receiver from Shreveport, La., decommitted from Louisiana Tech and cited "uncertain future for state-funded universities."


Noooo Thank You

This hockey ref got drilled with a beer can (thrown by a player's brother) right in the man region.


P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day

Ladies and gentlemen, we have LLOD royalty for this wonderful Tuesday afternoon with four-time Swimsuit Issue model and 2015 cover model Hannah Davis. (Click here for Hannah's full-sized gallery)


People vs. O.J.

Cuba Gooding Jr. says shaking off the "darkness" of playing O.J. Simpson in The People vs. O.J. Simpson took weeks. Also, David Schwimmer talked about Robert Kardashian, saying he was the only one "with nothing to gain."


Wait...What?

A 14-year-old girls basketball player in Wisconsin was stabbed by a four-inch piece of wood while sliding on the court. The video is unsettling but not violent or graphic.
