In a desperate (and genius) attempt at to attract more fans, the NHL has taken a page from the WWE and beefed up its T&A and fighting quotient. The only thing missing is Floyd Mayweather Jr. on skates. While the fights have been top-notch this year (Keyboard Quarterbacks runs down the 10 best this season), they pale in comparison to the league's Ice Girls. Puck That Hit looks at all the Ice Girls in the league and wonders which team's squad is the best. Our vote goes to the Anaheim Power Players, who look like Laker Girls on skates.
Real Man Of Genius
We've stopped trying to understand what makes Kobe Bryant tick. Nothing he does surprises us, even dressing up as Leonardo da Vinci, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Albert Einstein and George Washington Carver to show how "genius" his game is.
There's a fine line between appreciating throwback uniforms and actually rocking them in public. We tend to lean toward the former. There's something about wearing oversized uniforms from the '70s that has never sat well with us. In the spirit of appreciating throwbacks from a distance, here's a list of some of the best throwback uniforms captured in posters.
We're suckers for NFL mock drafts. We'll read just about anyone's. Our favorite so far comes from Tirico Suave, which runs down the entire first round with NFL teams selecting fictional movie characters. We think the Jets reached a bit for Al Bundy.
Pics To Click
We never get tired of Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian pictures, and these are the best ones yet. Not only is the happy couple vacationing in the Dominican Republic, but they are also asking fellow vacationers to take pictures of them.
There's no doubt Utah Jazz forward Kyle Korver is known for his ability to shoot, not so much for his defensive prowess, but this is just embarrassing. Lion in Oil posts a picture of how not to defend a fast break.
It's too early to say that the Suns' trade for Shaquille O'Neal is a bust. Sure, they've gone only 3-5 with the Big Aristotle in the middle and have dropped from the No. 1 seed in the West to the sixth spot, but we'll give them time. Our guess, though, is that this snazzy player introduction video will be the most noise Shaq makes all year in Phoenix.
Mascot Video Of The Day
This has been a difficult season for everyone in the Chicago Bulls' organization, including the team's mascot, Benny the Bull, who apparently has been dealing with some personal problems on the home front.
