Rare Baseball Photos
Ronald C. Modra spent 23 years shooting baseball as a SI photograher and landed more than 70 covers. Modra’s new book, A Baseball Life, showcases some of his most revealing images of the game’s best players over the past 40 years. You can purchase a copy at www.abaseballlife.com. In the meantime, here are some of our favorite shots from the book.
All Hail Snoop Dogg
I thought Snoop Dogg jumped the shark sometime in 2007 with his reality show Snoop Dogg's Father Hood. I even joked with my wife (Dori Gray, give her a follow) that there's a better chance of me watching the entire 12-season run of Two and a Half Men than seeing one episode of his new reality show, Snoop & Son: A Dad's Dream, which debuted last month. I owe Snoop an apology after reading about the Coming to America-themed 18th birthday party he threw his son Cordell. I can't think of anything cooler a father could do for his son. They even recreated the "She's Your Queen to Be" song. Watch the video below. It may be the best thing I've seen in 2015.

Odds & Ends
Bobby Knight's famous chair-throwing incident was 30 years ago today. If you read one story about it, make it this one ... Michigan's Spike Albrecht wasn't going to let a little basketball game prevent him from a beer pong shot ... Austin Rivers' teammates teased him after his career-high 28-point game ... Adrian Peterson's agent had a 'heated exchange' with a Vikings executive ... CC Sabathia is fat again ... Great feature on Reno Big Horns coach David Arseneault Jr. and his unique offensive system ... How the Blazers' tribute to Jerome Kersey came together ... Here are 21 times Phil Dunphy was the best character on television ... I predict the Good Charlotte guy who married Cameron Diaz will regret this tattoo.
