A Glam Slam:
Vanity Fair has revealed its 2013 “International Best-Dressed List,” featuring a mix of A-list celebrities, designers, royals and professional athletes. Snagging a spot among the fashion elite is no easy feat, but three sports stars proved that their sartorial skills are just as impressive as their game.
New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady, Miami Heat forward, LeBron James, and New York Rangers goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist, represent the sports world on this year’s list. They have distinctly different styles, but all three men have been recognized for their memorable fashion choices outside of their sport, and are often ranked among the best-dressed athletes. Brady makes his second appearance on the list, as he was among the 2012 honorees as well. James is both a trendsetter and a risk-taker, as evident in the oxblood red tuxedo from Waraire Boswell that he recently sported at the ESPY Awards. Lundqvist is known for his classic approach to dressing and his impeccable suiting style.

Clearly, Miami Heat star LeBron James is dedicated to improving his game and judging from the below clip, he might be adding a hook shot to his offensive repertoire.
Check out this short video that LeBron posted on Instagram back on Tuesday that shows him practicing his hook shot and having about a 50% success rate:
Tom Brady is throwing to a lot of new faces this season, but these rookies have been playing like veterans so far in training camp.
The new receivers donning Patriots jerseys may be young and new to the NFL, but they aren’t acting like it. Brady praised their work ethic, their willingness to learn and improve, as well as the knowledge of the game they have exhibited so far.
Designer David Gunnarson tweeted yesterday that he has begun the design phase of Henrik Lundqvist's new mask...
...please be bedazzled. Please be bedazzled. Please be bedazzled.
...is it me or does Lundqvist get a new mask when the weather changes? Assuming he'll have a signature one designed for the two outdoor games at Yankee Stadium as well.

The stars of the day? Tom Brady and Danny Amendola.

Tim Tebow’s future in the NFL has been questioned since the Denver Broncos drafted him with the 25th overall pick in 2010. But Ben Volin of The Boston Globe believes Tebow’s future with the New England Patriots should not be in doubt.

It doesn't take the sharp eye of an NFL scout to know that LeBron James would make an outstanding football player. But when Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant says it, and the reporters covering training camp have run out of ideas, it becomes news.
