It's Always Spray Tanned In Philadelphia
Former Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco "Spray Tan" Murray will be taking his talents to the Philadelphia Eagles, which should help Philly fans get over the shocking LeSean McCoy trade last week. It's been a weird offseason for the Eagles at running back... one month ago McCoy was their starter, one week ago it was supposedly Frank Gore, yesterday it was Ryan Mathews and today it's Murray. Let's check back next week. In the meantime, enjoy the above gallery of some key players who have changed teams (click here for full-size version).
Death To The "Turdburgers"
The NHL's worst jersey will be retired after this season.
Down by one-point with under 10 minutes to go in a crucial tournament game, Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams left his team's huddle during a timeout to help coach a female fan taking part in a free throw contest. Even though the Hokies ended up losing and the girl still struggled with her free throws, it was pretty hilarious to see.
P.M. Lovely Lady of the Day
Andy recommended 24-year old British actress Helen Flanagan as today's afternoon selection for LLOD, and since he runs things around here...voila! I do have to say, she's quite worthy of the honors, no matter what hair color she's rocking. (Click here for full-sized gallery.)

Feel-Good Story of the Day
Big time props to these middle school basketball players who walked off the court in the middle of a recent game to stick up for a cheerleader with Down's Syndrome who was being bullied.
Between Two Zambonis
Anaheim Ducks Ryan Kesler and Cam Fowler did a spoof of Zach Galifianakis' "Between Two Ferns" and, if nothing else, it helped show us that Fowler is so very bad at math.
Fast and Furious, For Real
Furious 7 has released a new featurette documenting how they filmed that ridiculous scene with cars being dropped out of a plane. It's pure insanity.
