Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is honoring slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin again, this time posing with his two young sons in hoodies on the cover of Ebony.

Wade has been outspoken throughout the complex, polarizing case that recently ended with the even more controversial George Zimmerman verdict.

He wrote messages on his shoes in honor of Martin when the story first gathered attention in 2012, and organized a team photo of the Heat in hoodies.

Wade is one of Ebony's four cover photos. The others include Spike Lee and his son, actor Boris Kodjoe and his son, and Martin's parents and brother.

Philadelphia Eagles player Riley Cooper is back at practice after a brief leave of absence from the team, following a racial slur he made in a video that went viral.

R-Cooper

The embattled wide receiver said that he's spoken with each of his teammates individually, asking them not to forgive him, but to judge him by his future.

"I talked to everyone individually," he said. "I told them, 'I don't want you to forgive me, because that puts the burden on you. I want it all on me.'"

"I told them that and I told them I apologize. They could tell it was from the heart, they know I'm not that kind of person. It feels good to have support."

He added that he felt that "100 percent" of his teammates supported him, something he sensed on the field in his return to Eagles training camp.

From the sketch comedy group, The Smart Department, comes what will surely be the newest craze in adventure sports... kayak free kayaking!

I personally love stuff like this. Heartwarming stories of a man out there taking on behemoths previously thought to be insurmountable.

Just a man, a dream, and a paddle. 

The gutwrenching moments when it was thought that Trip Deacon has faltered in his descent down San Francisco's Lombard Street? Those are the things that separate the men from the boys.

I think we can all agree, Trip Deacon is truly a man.

Danger, intrigue, and a human interest angle? Kayak free kayaking is sure to be the "next big thing".

After years of The Sandlot not making any type of news, here were are for the second The Sandlot story in a matter of weeks.

But this one it isn't quite as feel good as The Sandlot reunion.

Tom Guiry Mugshot

Tom Guiry - who played Smalls in the coming of age film - found himself on the wrong side of the law over the weekend when he was turned away from a flight at Houston's Bush International Airport for being too inebriated.

Get ready for Eli and Peyton Manning coming at you like you’ve never seen them before ... and maybe never want to see the NFL stars ever again.

In a video equally fascinating, amusing and disturbing, the Giants and Broncons quarterbacks rap in a video/commercial for DirecTV’s Sunday Ticket.

Check out the three-minute spot below:

Even their dad Archie Manning, the family patriarch, makes a cameo, sitting on a throne and wearing a wig that defies any attempt at comprehension.

In addition to rapping, the Mannings have won a combined three Super Bowls and appeared together in previous commercials, as well as hosting SNL.

No word on whether either one is considering a career in music once they're out of the NFL, or if this effort will hurt their fantasy football QB rankings.

In the first of our fantasy football draft guides, THG tackled the position of quarterback.

There's basically Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees... and then everyone else.

Running back, meanwhile, follows a similar pattern. A year after nearly breaking the all-time mark for yards in a season, Adrian Peterson is the most obvious top pick in some time. But filling out the rest of the Top 10 gets a bit tricky...

Running Backs
  1. Adrian Peterson: He will not reach his goal this year of 2,500 yards. But, barring injury, he may very well threaten the record once again, while crossing the end zone well over 10 times. The guy is Minnesota's entire offense.
  2. Ray Rice: More about consistency than anything else. You don't want to bungle a first round pick and Rice rarely get injured, while producing year in and year out.
  3. Arian Foster: More potential for a huge year than Rice, but injury prone. We'd be shocked if he played 16 games.
  4. Marshawn Lynch: The Beast! An injury to new wide receiver Percy Harvin simply means more carries per game for a back finally getting his due.
  5. Jamaal Charles: Does your league give extra points for touchdowns of 40 years or more? Then this is your man. Will break a long one every other game and is an able pass catcher as well.
  6. Stevan Ridley: This may be a bit high. But who is Tom Brady gonna throw to this season? Ridley scored at least 13 points (basic ESPN League scoring) in 9 of 16 games last season and that was before Wes Welker went to Denver and Aaron Hernandez probably killed someone.
  7. Doug Martin: Over 1,400 yards and 11 scores last year. He's young and only on his way up.
  8. LeSean McCoy: With Chip Kelly running the offense, look for the Eagles to average more plays than any team in the league. And that means A LOT of touches for McCoy.
  9. Trent Richardson: Probably the best candidate to have a breakout season. But can't put anyone on Cleveland in our top 5 until we see it.
  10. Alfred Morris: Possible sophomore slump alert, but with Washington likely to ease RGIII back into things, safe to assume they'll be running the ball often.

Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, serving time in prison for sexual assault, is corresponding with people on the outside a la Aaron Hernandez.

And, much like letters from the jailed former New England Patriots star, Sandusky's words reveal much, perhaps even more than he himself realizes.

Jerry Sandusky Mug Shot

"I've been quite confined, always searching for purpose," Jerry Sandusky writes (the usual caveats applying to every word he says, obviously).

"For now, my main purpose is to endure, learn from and grow form this experience. It is very challenging. I exercise, read, meditate and do a lot of writing."

"I've written and continue to write my account of what has happened."

A perfect game in bowling takes place less frequently than a clean home run hit by Alex Rodriguez.

So we can only imagine the pain being felt by Tom Walker today.

He had nailed 11 consecutive strikes at a charity game in Houston this weekend when he lined up for his final roll, one clean shot away from bowling immortality.

Did he achieve the feat? No. Why not? You won't believe the reason. Watch now:

Anastasia Ashley, a professional surfer, is officially our favorite professional surfer (or pro athlete overall) after showing us her pre-event warmup routine:

Twerking!

Seriously, AA's form is exquisite, don't you think?

The video shown above was taken last weekend at the Supergirl Pro in Oceanside, Calif., where Ashley did not win. The surfing competition, that is.

She definitely won for pre-show entertainment. So much so that we think she could give Kim Kardashian or Miley Cyrus Twerking a run for her money.

Challenge extended, Miles.

Donald Trump is weighing in on Major League Baseball's suspension of Alex Rodriguez, and suffice it to say it couldn't come soon or long enough.

"It is a great victory for NYC that A-Rod will never wear pinstripes again," Trump tweeted, then added in video form on Vine, "@arod sucks."

"He's making a deal because he's guilty as hell."

A-Rod, of course, did wear pinstripes Monday night. He is appealing the 211-game suspension and is free to play pending a hearing - months away.

He only went 1-4 in his 2013 debut at least, D.

Trump also RAILED against the star and the Yankees organization earlier this year once Alex Rodriguez's link to the Biogenesis clinic was uncovered.
