In case you missed it, SI put together an extensive set of lists, photos and other fun stuff to celebrate the end of the decade. Here are some of the highlights:Jack McCallum looks at the NBA's 10 signature moments while Mark Monteith breaks down the best trades, draft picks and other fun stuff. Peter King weighs in with his NFL all-decade team while Don Banks looks at the decade's top NFL moments. NHL writer Michael Farber votes for his all-decade team as well as the high and low points. For college basketball fans, Grant Wahl presents his all-decade team while Luke Winn relives the signature moments. We didn't forget about baseball -- Joe Posnanski has the decade's high and low points while Jon Heyman has a thorough look at the decade's best trades, worst free agent acquisitions and more. If that's not enough, we have a bunch of stories across all sports where we pick the biggest rivalries, best coaches, biggest flops, one-hit wonders, top sound bites and much more. You can find all of those here.

She has nothing to do with sports, but it's Christmas and if there's one day of the year we can feature someone who has nothing to do with sports, this is it. So enjoy these shots of Kaley.

Follow Jimmy and MeWhen 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 are Steve Mariucci and a very tan Tom Izzo posing at Mariucci's wedding in the early '80s, Chicago legends Jim McMahon, Mike Ditka, Michael Jordan and Hawk Harrelson at a golf outing in 1987 and Mario Lemieux at a 1990 photo shoot with the Stanley Cup and Jaromir Jagr's death-defying mullet. Check it out. If you still need your Jimmy Traina fix this week, follow him on Twitter here.

Shawshank Video of the DaySusan Sarandon and Tim Robbins have broken up after 23 years. On the bright side, it gives me an excuse to show Andy Dufresne's daring escape from prison in The Shawshank Redemption.
