He really got his feathers ruffled on this one.
This one's ... for the birds!
Shaq didn't think the Eagles would win the Super Bowl, so he made a bet. Shaq was wrong. And so Shaq had to pay for it by getting covered in feathers and running around an office cawing like a bird. I genuinely pity the people who had to clean up that mess.
The Olympics are officially here

Then check out our rookie's guide to the sport. Want to know everything there is to know about everything going down in PyeongChang? Then head over to SI's Olympics page, where you'll find sport guides, profiles, features, videos like the one below and much more.
Give me more of the Josh McDaniels drama
What a story, from top to bottom. After the Patriots' seemingly former and still current offensive coordinator swerved the Colts something fierce, Indianapolis is in no mood to play. Here’s Chris Ballard saying "the rivalry is back on" after McDaniels' last-minute bolt (though a rivalry requires both sides to be good, no?). Here's McDaniels's own agent leaving him over his shenanigans. And here's a wonderful rumor that the Patriots talked McDaniels out of taking the Colts' job because Robert Kraft's pettiness over Indianapolis starting Deflategate knows no bounds. This is the best soap opera currently going.
Lovely Lady of the Day

Wiener dog race? Wiener dog race!

Yea or nay?
I'm a soft yea on this, if only because fish bones make for a cool logo. What say y'all?
Speaking of funky jerseys
I hope the Rays get Esteban Yan, Willy Banks, Quinton McCracken and Tanyon Sturtze to throw out first pitches for those games.
