Dennis Rodman has written a book for children, “Dennis the Wild Bull,” which was released on Wednesday, according to ProBasketballTalk. The book’s main message is that it’s okay to be different — if you are yourself, you will be accepted, as Rodman was by his teammates in Detroit and Chicago during his time in the NBA.

The Hall-of-Famer also wrote a book titled, “I Should Be Dead by Now” about Rodman’s struggles during his post-NBA life, including the dissolution of his marriage with Carmen Electra and his drinking problems.

Rodman, 51, played 14 season in the NBA (1986-2000) and was named Defensive Player of the Year twice. He won five championships, two with the Pistons and three with the Bulls.

Warriors wearing Twitter handle shirts for Social Media Night on Saturday

Are you ready for Social Media Night?

The Warriors are having Social Media Night on Saturday and they’re making sure everyone is connected.

Players will warm up in shirts with their Twitter handles on them. You can buy those shirts too! (I think is smart marketing and brand recognition.)

Interactive social media fun live a scavenger hunt, tweets being displayed on the screen and a Instagram photo contest are all part of the festivities. But it doesn’t end there. Texting gloves will be given to early birds and a Facebook check-in allows you to have a Q&A with point guard Jarrett Jack.

Suns black throwbacks looked fantastic

The Suns are wearing this right now. Oh it looks so beautiful. It brings me back to the days of Charles Barkley and Rex Chapman.

I am so glad to see these uniforms and I know this is just a precursor to what the Suns will be wearing next year.

Good job Suns.

Chris Culliver needs to be careful with his anti-gay teammate remarks

Chris Culliver made some bold statements on having a gay teammate.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver made waves with a recent comment on his stance against having a gay teammate. Here are the details of his comments.

“I don’t do the gay guys, man. I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do. Can’t be with that sweet stuff. Nah…can’t be…in the locker room man. Nah.”

Culliver says he prefers his teammates to reveal their homosexuality 10 years after retirement. This goes against the stance the team has taken for their anti-bullying campaign on homosexuals.

New Era reveals 2013 NFL Draft cap collection

Pretty solid design for the draft day caps.

New Era has revealed their new collection for the upcoming NFL Draft. And I must say, from what we see here, it looks pretty nice.

Looking at the cap in the middle (which is essentially the same design for the left flex fit cap), we see that the caps will feature the logo and the team name. Last year, it was just the city name covering the logo. What stands out about this cap is the two-tone look for the script. Taking the team’s colors, the script will run across the crown with the logo in the forefront. In my opinion, some teams caps will look really good in this and it still features a vintage type design.

The other design that they show is a snapback design. The brim will be the opposite color of the crown, which is the case for most popular snapback designs.

Marshall Faulk: Patriots cheated to beat Rams in Super Bowl

Samuel:

This is a very interesting story. I don’t think I’m surprised since the Patriots have been accused of cheating before. But why does Faulk bring this up now?

Former St. Louis Rams running back Marshall Faulk said he believes the Patriots cheated to win the 2002 Super Bowl, reports CSNNE.com’s Tom Curran.

Faulk told Curran he thinks the Patriots videotaped St. Louis’ walk-through before the game.

“Am I over the loss? Yeah, I’m over the loss,” Faulk said. “But I’ll never be over being cheated out of the Super Bowl. That’s a different story.”

Since the Spygate scandal in 2007, when the Patriots were caught videotaping the Jets’ signals during a game, theories that the Patriots illegally taped the Rams have floated. But there has never been any evidence.

The Rams, heavily favored in the game, fell 20-17 to New England on Adam Vinatieri’s game-winning kick. It was the first of three Super Bowl wins in four years…

Are Randy Moss’ comments on being the greatest receiver ever crazy? Actually, not really…

Randy Moss made waves during Super Bowl Media Day.

Super Bowl Media Day gives us a bunch of great opportunities for nonsensical questions from media to players in hopes of one quote that could be used and spun into 500 different stories.

Randy Moss obliged the media with this comment about being the greatest receiver ever.

“Now that I’m older, I do think I’m the greatest receiver to ever do it. I don’t think numbers stand. Because you can talk about this and this, I think I’ve had … this year has been a down year for me statistically. The year before I retired was a down year, and Oakland was a down year. I don’t really live on numbers — I really live on impact and what you’re able to do on that field.”

Brewers Announce Winning Design in “Design A YOUniform” Contest

Samuel:

This was the uniform design I actually voted for so I am glad it won. Secondly, I love Barrelman and it’s so sad it’s only sold at Milwaukee. I want the cap but it’s $45 right now. Crazy, but I might consider getting it since it’s a rare piece of history. The font is also fantastic (despite the minor change) and this might be something I think the team should wear more than a couple times.

You probably voted and have been waiting to hear news on the winner.  Just moments ago at “Brewers On Deck,” Ben Peters, of Richfield, Minnesota was announced as the winner of the Brewers Design a YOUniform contest.  Peters’ design will be worn by the Brewers in exhibition games on March 22 in Phoenix at Maryvale Baseball Park and on March 30 in Milwaukee at Miller Park.  Merchandise including t-shirts and caps featuring the winning design is on sale now at Brewers On Deck and at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park.

Seeing the actual jersey and hat design in person got me really excited for this winning design.  The cream-colored jersey and navy blue hat look awesome.  I think they will be popular with fans.
