1. Queen of the Ring
Patricia Alcivar used to be a runway and fitness model. That alone warrants a post in my opinion. Even more impressive is the fact that she's set to challenge for the WBC Super Flyweight title soon. Alcivar is the definition of the total package: Not only is she beautiful, but she can defend herself (and probably me) if need be.
2. No Loss For Words
Check out this incredibly awesome typographic portrait of His Airness. It's the work of a teenage artist named PhreshSoldier, and the image of Jordan is made up of nothing but words and phrases that defined his career. I looked hard, but "gambling" and "punching Steve Kerr in the mouth" aren't in there.
3. Rolling Into Bed
Every single time The only time I've ever been camping, I've had a bike with me. The people at Topeak dreamed up a pretty cool way to make your transportation your shelter with this one-person tent. I guess you have to find a perfectly level campsite, though.
4. Twitter Fail
New York Liberty guard Cappie Pondexter embarrassed herself over the weekend with a series of pretty idiotic tweets referencing the situation in Japan. Some of the lowlights: "What if God was tired of the way they treated their own people in there own country!....They did pearl harbor so u can't expect anything less." I'm leaving the States for a few weeks now. Using Pondexter's logic, we're screwed. And it'll all be her fault.
5. Names of the Games
All-name teams are a staple of tournament time. My team MVP? Mathis Monninghoff of Gonzaga. Ivory White of Alabama State (pictured) is a close second, strictly because of the irony.
