Happy Monday, everyone. I'm sure most of you are depressed to be back at work after the holiday break (unless you're Jimmy Traina and need an extra two days off to fully unwind). On the bright side, there is this awesome rumor -- Wladimir Klitschko and Hayden Panettiere are dating. The 6-6 Klitschko owns the IBF, WBO, and IBO world heavyweight titles and probably won't get confused for Brad Pitt anytime soon.Panettiere stands a massive 5-foot-1 and has a misspelled tattoo running down her left side. I wish them a long and happy life together.
Sunday's Greatest Hits
I feel bad for Wes Welker who has bounced back from big hit after big hit throughout his career, only to see his season flushed down the toilet on the most innocuous of plays. But he wasn't the only one to go down. Miami's Pat White was knocked cold trying dive for a first down against the Steelers and Oakland's Hiram Eugene was knocked on his behind after this incredible stiff arm from Willis McGahee. Speaking of McGahee, maybe Welker should give him a call for advice on painful and poorly timed injuries.
More Reasons to Love Soccer Fans
Uncoached has a nice photo collection of crazy soccer fans including this guy. Can we make him the unofficial mascot for Team USA in June's World Cup?
Isiah and More Despicable Coaches

GQ put out a list of the 20 most despicable coaches in sports and Isiah Thomas made the list for his disastrous tenure with the Knicks. This gives me a chance to show off this 1986 photo of Thomas and Bill Laimbeer having way too much fun in a bathtub.
Tough Season for Rams Fans
As if St. Louis' 1-15 season wasn't bad enough, these poor Rams fans took a nasty fall trying to grab the shoes of defensive tackle Clifton Ryan.

Follow Jimmy and Me
When I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run SI's Vault, which has every story SI has written in the magazine's 55-year history. I also have a Twitter account that you should follow because every day I post old and embarrassing photos of athletes. Among today's gems is the 1983 NBA Eastern Conference all-stars, John Riggins sporting a Rollie Fingers-like mustache and this 1973 shot of Knicks forward Phil Jackson arguing a call. If you still need your Jimmy Traina fix this week, follow him on Twitter here.

Lost amid yesterday's NFL action was this incredible 75-foot heave by Florida's Chandler Parsons to beat N.C. State, 62-61.

This person is either really brave, really dumb, or a combination of both.
