The march toward football season took a significant step this weekend when the Buffalo Bills opened camp for rookies and veterans. Preseason games will be here before we know it (just check IsItFootballSeason.com for your official countdown) and cheerleaders will be back on the sidelines. The Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders, however, aren't waiting until the season starts to get to work. They recently unveiled their 2009-10 "eco-sexy" calendar. Yes, "eco sexy." Apparently, the bikinis worn by the ladies were made of recycled soda bottles and organic cotton.

Rain Delay Video Of The Day

Here's St. Louis Cardinals prospect Casey Mulligan killing time during a recent rain delay by rockin' out to a little Thriller. It takes about a minute and a half to get good, but it's worth the wait.

Odd Music Video Of The Day

Matt, of Framingham, Mass., says, "I'm not sure how you could ever post an odd music video without mentioning the standard bearer ... She's Gone, by Hall & Oates. This site breaks down the video pretty well, even if they can't properly put into words the feelings of intrigue, confusion, and remorse than any viewer will undoubtedly experience.

Can you spot the differences between the two movies?
