He’s Back, Brother
I’m back from SI Swimsuit launch week in Miami — thank you to Brett Smiley for taking over while I was gone. I’ll have more on the Miami excursion in PM Clicks.

The Camel Clutch Blog looks back at Hogan’s top WWF feuds, while Brandon Stroud discusses the comeback.

So for all the ailing Philly fans out there, I present a young Charles Barkley gliding past Larry Bird on his way to the hoop.
