Introducing the NWHL
The National Women's Hockey League is set to debut in 2015-16, and will include four teams—the Buffalo Beauts, the Boston Pride, the Connecticut Whale and the New York Riveters. Even better, the players will actually get paid (unlike the women's hockey league in Canada). The season will stretch from October to March with each team playing nine home and nine road games. No word on whether fighting will be allowed.

CBS Sports has a great profile of Andre the Giant and how he "spent his life balancing the wrestling spotlight with his thirst for a normal existence." Also worth noting: SI.com will have a huge profile of Randy "Macho Man" Savage coming Friday, covering everything from his minor league baseball career to behind-the-scenes relationship with Miss Elizabeth. Stay tuned.
