Most Traded NHL Players
The NHL trade deadline was Monday at 3 p.m. SI's Allan Muir has all the latest news and analysis. For a historical perspective, here's a look at notable trade deadline pickups through the years and a gallery of the most traded players of all time (or as I call it, The Mike Sillinger All-Stars).
Someone Is Gonna Get Fired For This
Speaking of the NHL trade deadline, a TSN viewer decided to get in on the network's #TradeCentre hashtag with a crude joke about Joffrey Lupul and Dion Phaneuf's wife, actress Elisha Cuthbert. The tweet (obviously) wasn't supposed to make it on air, and when it did, Lupul was not pleased.
Evolution of MLS Logos
Believe it or not, MLS is celebrating its 20th season this year. Unfortunately, not all of the league's original logos have made it this far. Only one of the original 10 team logos survives while four nicknames have changed and a fifth franchise, the Tampa Bay Mutiny, shut down altogether. We used the handy slider tool in this story to show how the logos have changed in the past two decades.
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
Enjoyed this comment from @EricBenghaziPorvaznik in Friday's P.M. Clicks about my choice of Sofia Vergara as LLOD: "Annnnnnnnd we won’t see a Lovely Lady of the Day (A.M. or P.M.) with actual curves for another 2-3 months. Oh, what a Colombian way to end February, though!" In honor of Eric and curve-lovers everywhere, here's Georgia Salpa (click here for fill-size gallery).
ESPN Anchor Feuds With Laker
ESPN's Robert Flores took a shot at Iggy Azalea during SportsCenter's "What Did We Learn" segment. Flores, after discussing the story about how a dolphin tried to kill Azalea's boyfriend, Nick Young, said, "We learned that, according to the Lakers’ Nick Young, a Dolphin recently tried to kill him. So, Nick, while Dolphins are trying to kill you, your girlfriend is trying to kill hip-hop. Let’s call it even, OK?” I actually thought it was a great line, but Young didn't find it was so funny and blasted the ESPN anchor on Twitter.

This got ugly very quickly.

Randomly came across this intro for Game 1 of the 1985 NBA semifinals between the Pistons and Celtics. Love this old NBA theme song.
