Muggsy Bogues Turns 50
Muggsy Bogues, who I met and interviewed when he was in the SI office last month, turned 50 today. We collected our favorite photos of the 5-foot-3 guard, starting with this shot of him next to 7-foot-7 Manute Bol.
Sportsman of the Year
Members of the Ohio State football team visited the Nationwide Children's Hospital on Thursday and QB Cardale Jones let a young patient beat him at NCAA Football 14. Just kidding. Jones racked up 600 yards of offense playing as Ohio State (last year's team) in a 91-35 victory over Georgia.
Who's Excited for the
Super Bowl Puppy Bowl Feline Bowl Fish Bowl
The Super Bowl is the highest televised program of the year but it's not for everyone. That's why 55 pups are getting ready for the 11th annual Puppy Bowl. Of course, some people prefer cats to dogs, and lucky for them, Kitten Bowl II is also on the docket that day. And then there are the people who don't like football, don't like dogs and don't like cats. For that tiny subset, there is The Fish Bowl on Nat Geo Wild, which consists of fish swimming around the bowl. Something for everyone!
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
My good friend Jake, a redhead living in the suburbs of Philly, asked why I never have fellow redheads as LLOD. It just so happens that former SI Swimsuit model Cintia Dicker has a new photo shoot out for her swimwear line and earns today's honors (click here for full-size gallery).
