The 15-year-old in the photo above is Tiger Woods (looking like he could use a bathroom). At the time of the photo, some golf experts had Woods pegged as the next great American star. Nearly 20 years later, many are wondering who will be the next Tiger. The answer just may be 12-year-old Brad Dalke, a McKinney, Texas native who has given a verbal committment to play golf at the University of Oklahoma.

LeBron James is back in the news as GQ is running a story next month that follows James during "The Decision." Though only a few excerpts from the piece were released, there is some juicy stuff including how LeBron hated Cleveland as a kid, his reaction to Dan Gilbert's public criticism and his desire to return to the Cavs before his career is over.

Complex Magazine published it's list of the 50 hottest Hawaiian women, which features several athletes including surfer Malia Jones, golfer Michelle Wie, MMA fighter Elektra Knight and volleyball player Logan Tom.

I really loved this piece by the AV Club on characters who ruin good TV shows. There are some I agree with (Rudy Huxtable when she got older; A.J. Soprano), some I didn't (Dwight Schrute) and some I would've added (Andrea Zuckerman in Beverly Hills, 90210), but it's a good read nonetheless.

When I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run the SI Vault and post funny and embarrassing photos to my Twitter feed, such as this 1993 shot of Pam Anderson with her high school volleyball team. It's safe to say she's had some plastic surgery since then.
