Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Vince Williams transformed into Stone Cold Steve Austin for training camp.
1. No NFL player can top the entrance that Steelers linebacker Vince Williams made Wednesday when he arrived to camp as WWE icon Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Williams didn't just dress like the Texas Rattlesnake. He had music, mannerisms and a WWE title belt.
A true A+ performance all around by Williams.

My 10 year old son is a huge fan. The pic below has been his long time screen saver.
Tonight, he told me he is changing it to a solo shot of @M_Ryan02 or @devontafreeman.
Just thought you should know.

4. Forget going into the booth. When Joey Votto's playing days are over, he's going into the school bus.
5. Rough day at the office for Twins outfielder Max Kepler on Wednesday.
6. Can more MLB players do unfiltered postgame interviews the way Astros third baseman Alex Bregman did last night? Bregman was livid after a triple got turned into an out because of fan interference.
