Get ready to see both a lot more and a lot less of Rex Ryan this summer. The "more" comes in the form of HBO's Hard Knocks -- tomorrow it will be formally announced that the Jets will be featured on the show next August. The "less" comes in the form of gastric bypass surgery, which Rex underwent to lose weight and shrink his appetite. I wonder if this video led to his decision.
Best Dunk Ever? I Think NotLeandro Barbosa called Amar'e Stoudemire's dunk against Golden State the best he's ever seen. I say that Barbosa has not seen a lot of dunks. Yes, it was a nice dunk but to say it's better than Vince Carter over Frederic Weis, John Starks over half the Bulls' roster, Michael Jordan over Patrick Ewing or even Larry Bird's famous Game 7 dunk against the Lakers is preposterous. Okay, maybe it was better than the Bird one, but the other three are better, at least in my opinion.
Lovely Lady of the Day
Jessica Michibata :: Jun Sato/Getty ImagesYesterday, I asked readers to send in suggestions for today's Lovely Lady of the Day. A reader named Sean Livingston from Osaka, Japan requested lingerie model Jessica Michibata, who is dating F-1 driver Jenson Button. Frankly, Button could be driving a taxi cab in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for all I care. His girlfriend is ridiculously hot and is today's Lovely Lady of the Day.
Two Notes on TigerWhen I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run the SI Vault. I came across two interesting items while searching through our archives. One is a first-person piece written by his college girlfriend about her experience dating Tiger Woods. The second is a quote from Gary Smith's 1996 profile of Woods: "No matter how big it gets. I grew up in the media's eye, but I was taught never to lose sight of where I came from. Athletes aren't as gentlemanly as they used to be. I don't like that change. I like the idea of being a role model. It's an honor. People took the time to help me as a kid, and they impacted my life. I want to do the same for kids."
