It's been a while since we featured the lovely Candice Swanepoel on here, and for that I couldn't be more sorry.
Let's change that right now, with this recently-released Victoria's Secret video Candice did to show off Victoria Secret's new 'Very Sexy Bandeau' bikini:

Tom Brady's NFL season ended earlier than anticipated when the Baltimore Ravens went into Foxborough and stunned the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship on Sunday.
But, even though Brady is disappointed in the loss, I'm pretty sure he'll go on just fine. I mean, for one, he's married to Gisele. And now he gets to live with her in the awesome new mansion...
Duke senior forward Mason Plumlee is having a tremendous season, averaging 17 points and 11.7 rebounds for the No. 1 ranked (through the weekend, anyway) Blue Devils. And on Saturday in conference play against the Maryland Terrapins , Plumlee had the most impressive play of his impressive season.
Watch Plumlee provide a formidable 'Dunk of the Year' candidate with this...
Last night we showed you (as did the rest of the Internet) a video and GIF of Miami Heat fan Michael Drysch making a half-court shot to win $75,000. Immediately after making the shot, Drysch was tackled and bear hugged by some guy named LeBron James.
Now, we have a longer video of the awesome moment, giving you the full lead-up to it, a bit more of the aftermath, more replays of the shot, etc.
Hate on Miami Heat superstar LeBron James as much as you want, but you have to love a moment involving him from Friday night in Miami.
A Heat fan made a half-court shot to win $75,000, and LeBron immediately ran over to tackle/bear hug the fan in celebration.

And the LeBron tackle/hug in GIF form (via @cjzero; cjzero.com):

Word recently got out that the NBA's New Orleans Hornets would be changing their name to the New Orleans Pelicans for the 2013-2014 season. And on Thursday, the Hornets held a press conference to officially announce/confirm the name change, and unveil the Pelicans logo.
Here's the logo:
Meh. We'll have to see what the uniforms look like, but the logo and...

Drexel senior Frantz Massenat nailed an unbelievable 50-foot shot at the buzzer to knock Hofstra 55-52 in college basketball on Wednesday night.

So I came across the Twitter page of De'Anthony Thomas last night, and my oh my, was that a fantastic discovery.
If you're unaware of who Thomas is, he's a star running back/wide receiver/returner (he's arguably the most electrifying player in college football) that just finished his sophomore season at the University of Oregon. And the first things I learned about...
The Los Angeles Clippers' Caron Butler emphatically rejected a shot attempt from the Oklahoma City Thunder's Serge Ibaka on Tuesday night... and the blocked shot also drilled referee Derek Richardson in the face.
As for the game, the Thunder won the potential Western Conference Finals preview 109-97, and were led by...
Maria Sharapova faces the No. 6-seeded Li Na in the semifinals of the Australian Open on Wednesday. This is Li Na, and one of her serves from the quarterfinals:
Spectacularly awful. If you're into the world of sports betting or perhaps just like to take a gander at the sports betting lines frequently as I do, you're likely aware that Maria is currently a big...
A Colorado Avalanche fan brought a very clever sign to the team's home opener on Tuesday night against the defending champion Los Angeles Kings at Pepsi Center.
The sign read, "By the beard of Zanon!", in reference to the "By the beard of Zeus" line from Will Ferrell in Anchorman, and in reference to the current beard that Avalanche defenseman Greg Zanon...
Kevin Durant: Prettyyyyy, prettyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, pretty good at basketball.
On Tuesday night at Staples Center, the NBA's leading scorer dropped 32 points on the Clippers in the Thunder's 109-97 win. 24 of Durant's 32 points came in the second half, with two of those 24 coming on this awesome dunk over Lamar Odom:
Nice crossover on Matt Barnes, too.
JaMarcus Russell is one of the biggest busts in NFL history after being the No. 1 overall pick by the Oakland Raiders in the 2007 NFL Draft. From 2007-2009, the quarterback out of LSU threw 18 touchdowns and 23 interceptions, while having a quarterback rating of 65.2 and completion percentage of 52.1.
And my favorite stat: Russell had 25 fumbles in those three years. So, 18 touchdown passes,
19-year-old American Sloane Stephens just knocked off 15-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open.
Serena won the first set 6-3, but injured her back in the second set, and didn't look like herself for the rest of the match. Sloane would win the final two sets, 7-5, 6-3, to move on to the semifinals.
And after one point in the...
In January 2011, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon released the 'Pro Bowl Shuffle', a parody music video inspired of course by the 1985 Chicago Bears' 'Super Bowl Shuffle'.
With the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl coming up on Sunday (not that anybody cares), I figured it would be a nice time to dig up the 'Pro Bowl Shuffle'.
Here's the video, which includes Will...
Syracuse guard Michael Carter-Williams is a stud. The 6'6" sophomore is projected to go 11th in NBADraft.Net's latest mock draft, and he gave us a pretty idea of why in No. 3 Syracuse's 57-55 victory over No. 21 Cincinnati on Monday. Carter-Williams had 16 points, seven assists, and five rebounds in the win. Two of his points came in fancy fashion on this spectacular dunk: Oh, and
The Chicago Blackhawks and Phoenix Coyotes are currently in a game that has officially reached BANANAS status on the NHL's second day of games in the 2013 season.
As I write this, the Blackhawks lead 6-4 in the third period, and in one stretch during the third period, three goals were scored in a 90-second stretch. The last goal came from Blackhawks center Dave Bolland, and...
Julio Jones is having himself quite the NFL Championship game. As I write this, the 6'3", 220-pound Atlanta Falcons wide receiver/beast has seven catches for 135 yards and two touchdowns. And it's only halftime.
The second touchdown reception from Jones was an absolutely incredible play, as he made a leaping catch in the back of the end zone on a Matt Ryan pass ...

Two yellow labrador puppies adorably invaded a recent soccer match between Galatasaray and VfR Aalen in Istanbul, causing a brief delay in the game.
Here's video proof:
Totally agree with this take from our friends at Cosby Sweaters: "Also, what’s up with the one security guy holding one of the puppies like a baby with a diaper full of gerber food...
The Atlanta Hawks on Monday night against the Chicago Bulls had the most pathetic effort offensively of any team I've ever watched play basketball, at any level (at least given what should be expected at each level).
The Hawks scored a total of 58 points, the lowest amount of points the Bulls have allowed in franchise history. It was particularly awful in the first half, when...
Veteran MLB outfielder Nyjer Morgan (aka "Tony Plush"), tweeted tonight that he cheated on his girlfriend. Yep, seriously:

James Harden is averaging 26.5 points per game this season, after being acquired by the Houston Rockets from the Oklahoma City Thunder.
With this play 'The Beard' had on Saturday night against the Philadelphia 76ers, you get a pretty good idea of why he's putting up nearly 30 points a game:
Incredible between-the-legs move and then finishes with an and-one...
