As you know, I spent all of last week with SI Swimsuit. It was a long, strange trip - I interviewed Kate Upton (watch now on Facebook Live, discussed Vacation with Christie Brinkley (I had to remind her that the family was called the Griswolds), ate pizza with El Prez of Barstool fame (as did some other models) and ended up on a hotel bed with four models at 3 a.m. on Saturday night (there were others in the room but that doesn't sound as exciting). Best of all: our star photographer Taylor Ballantyne was there to cover all most of it for this behind the scenes photo gallery.

Candice Wiggins has some thoughts on the WNBA

“Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge. I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place." Safe to say Candice Wiggins didn't love her two years in the WNBA. Check out the story for more eye-opening quotes.

Spent the weekend with Danielle Herrington and she will absolutely become a star. I predict SI Swimsuit cover by 2020. She is today's LLOD (click for full-size gallery).

This was scary

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins fell to the floor during last night's game against Texas after his internal defibrillator administered a shock due to his heart rhythm being too fast.

Odds & ends

Either Vlade Divac is an awful GM or he needs to keep some things to himself ...The NBA world is freaking out over Isaiah Thomas's cryptic tweet ... Nobody wants to play for the Jaguars ... This Walmart customer is really desperate for a lawsuit ... I'm enjoying Celebrity Week on The Price is Right ... So the Snapchat founder really is waiting until marriage to have sex with Miranda Kerr. This man has a lot of patience ... How to make rum ham and other treats from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia ... Can't tell if this is best or worst engagement story ... A list of famous people who really think the world is flat.
