Pittsburgh Penguins’ third jersey has a championship look

Samuel:

I really like this. It’s the classic Pittsburgh colors (instead of the gold they use currently) and it really has that retro look. Very nice. Well done. One of the best looking jerseys in hockey right now.

The Penguins will wear the Pittsburgh Gold jersey 12 times during the regular season.

And we’re guessing it could make a playoff appearance, too.

Why are NFL players getting in trouble a lot more than they did in the past?

What a crazy season this has been. Ray Rice. Ray McDonald. Adrian Peterson. Greg Hardy. Just saying those names and immediately think about their recent issues off the field. Domestic violence, child abuse, bullying and there are a ton of other players out there with DUIs, drug use and many other crimes.

I am not sure what is going on. I don’t remember this many news hits of NFL players causing trouble when I was a kid. Maybe there were but it wasn’t as public. Or maybe it’s because we live in an age where these common mishaps are just more accessible and easier to expose.

The new cover of SLAM magazine recreates the 1996 rookie class photo shoot

This is iconic. Recreating the 1996 photo shoot is a big deal. Some consider it the greatest rookie class of all time. Some say 1984. Some say 2003. However you view it, the 2014 rookie class is one class that we are all excited to see and I am so excited that such hype has been bestowed upon them.

I don’t know if they will ever reach that kind of high levels of play but just seeing this recreation gave me the chills.

Check out the original and the new one side to side.

She does have a point as it looked like the NFL canceled her appearance last Thursday because she was a past victim of domestic who had reconciled with her abuser:

FWIW, the NFL said that she was cancelled not because of her past history, but because of the overall “tone” of the broadcast:

“We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone and coverage,” CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus told SI.com last week of the decision to bump Rihanna’s intro, among other features. “A lot of the production elements we wanted in the show are being eliminated because of time or tone.”

Now the “tone” has changed an it’s…
