1. On November 16, 2016, at 6:55 p.m. ET, model Kate Upton reacted to her then-boyfriend/now-husband Justin Verlander losing out on the AL Cy Young Award in a way Twitter users will never forget.

Twitter

Here's the tweet in all its unedited glory. 

Kate and Justin just had their first child a little over a week ago, but obviously that was just the second-most memorable moment of their lives after the Tweet Heard 'Round the Internet.

2. Pardon the Interruption's Mike Wilbon had a truly terrible take on Jacob deGrom winning the NL Cy Young Award.

I'm not an analytics guy at all, but to say you care about wins more than ERA regarding a starting pitcher is ignorance at the highest level. Basically, Wilbon wants deGrom punished for not throwing shutouts in every one of his starts. The Mets were so pathetic this season, the only way deGrom would have picked up wins is if he never gave up a run. But, sure, let's value wins over ERA.

3. I always say sports is so stupid and football coaches are all a little ... off. Here's more proof. Houston coach Major Applewhite got into a confrontation last night with one of his defensive players, Ed Oliver, because Oliver, who was inactive for the game, was wearing a team jacket. 

Let's boil this down: You literally have a grown manan adultgoing out of his way to tell another guy that he's not allowed to wear a particular jacket. So stupid. So dumb. So weird. 

4. This wasn't quite Donald Trump-Jim Acosta, but Aaron Rodgers was unhappy with a question in his postgame press conference last night after losing to the Seahawks, but the reporter did not back down, telling the Packers QB that his team can't win on the road.

5. I don't know why, but TNT decided we needed an update on Shaquille O'Neal's vile feet last night. 

6. The newest SI Media Podcast features an interview with Ian Eagle of CBS Sports/Turner Sports.
