A History of All-Star Uniforms
The 2014 NBA All-Star jerseys have leaked and if you liked sleeved jerseys, you’ll love these babies. How do they stack up against the All-Star uniforms of past years? See for yourself.

Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldinho is living the good life.
Tom Brady Gets Weird
Controversial photographer Terry Richardson released his latest batch of photos featuring Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. It still blows me away that this pudgy 12-year-old grew up to be one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks.
(Throwback) Lovely Lady of the Day

No Porn For You
It’s been a rough couple days for Aaron Hernandez. A search warrant request released earlier today says that authorities in Boston are investigating the former Patriots tight end for his possible involvement in a 2012 double murder. He’s not allowed to watch the Patriots playoff game in prison, and if all that isn’t enough, he can’t even look at the naked selfies his female fans are sending him.
Looks Who’s Suddenly Fat

I Live On Super Bowl Drive
Mayor Steven Fulop declared Christopher Columbus Drive in Jersey City will be renamed “Super Bowl Drive” for the week leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII. I mention this for two reasons.

25 Years Ago Today
In the Jan. 16, 1989 issue of SI, Curry Kirkpatrick actually wrote a feature on Dwayne Schintzius‘ amazing mullet. Here’s an excerpt:
“And so, off on his own at the big university up the interstate from his home in Brandon, Fla., near Tampa, the kid went whole hog with the Dwayne-Do or, as some teammates call it, the Lobster—burr short on top, boxed on the sides, feathered oh-so-scraggly down the back in the fashion of, uh, a crustacean’s tail. It’s a signature look, and it screeches freedom, cool values, distinct dudeness. Throw in Schintzius’s nifty sneer and generally sullen public attitude, and what you have is every denim ed pseudohood who ever squealed out of a sock hop in his white-walled dragmobile wearing a cigarette pack in the sleeve of his T-shirt. Except that this one is seven…foot…two.”
Odds and Ends
Bill Cowher admitted that he used to try to steal signals as coach of the Steelers … Michelle Jenneke still looks good in a bikini … This is what male athletes would look like in makeup … Goose Gossage does not support Alex Rodriguez … A musical based on Groundhog Day is in the works.
Commercial Of The Day
The Duracell ad featuring Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman – the first legally-deaf offensive player in NFL history – is pretty inspirational.
Several members of the Seinfeld gang reunited for a Super Bowl commercial taping.

In honor of Rex Ryan’s contract extension, here’s his famous “Let’s get a f***ing snack” scene from Hard Knocks.
