The SI.com photo department has been hard at work this week creating (at last count) 21 galleries - from Celebs at Super Bowl Parties to Worst Halftime Shows to The History of Media Day - all of which can be found on our NFL Galleries Page. My personal favorite is SI's 100 Best Super Bowl Photos, from which I've selected some choice cuts for the gallery above.
This may be the dumbest story of Super Bowl week. Also my favorite.
I accidentally stumbled upon a bunch of photos for the 2014 Swimsuit Issue (on sale Feb.18!). I can confirm that my request to go all nude for the 50th anniversary was denied. On the bright side, I can announce that SwimDaily will reveal the identity of a rookie swimsuit model every day leading up to the issue's release. Seeing that the former Rookie of the Year Award winners include Chrissy Teigen (2010), Kate Upton (2011), Nina Agdal (2012) and Hot Clicks favorite Kate Bock (2013), this is an exciting development. Speaking of exciting, the first official photos of the 2014 issue - featuring Hannah Davis - have been released
My friends at Guinness World Records have provided me with a couple copies of their Guinness World Records 2014 Gamer's Edition. I will send them to the first two people who email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of Marshawn Lynch's charity, which he mentioned several times in my interview with him yesterday.
David Stern has fined Mark Cuban nearly $2 million since Cuban bought the Mavs in 2000. And like most adults, the two put any ill feelings aside and took a selfie together.
I interviewed AJ McCarron earlier this week and couldn't resist asking him about this photo. He laughed for a couple of seconds and then said, "I just think it’s funny. There’s a new article up every day that says we’re broken up or a picture like that. I think that’s what makes our relationship so great. We stick with each other through the thick and thin and she’s my best friend."
