For those of you that are unfamiliar with the phone app sensation ‘Draw Something,’ it’s essentially one-on-one Pictionary for your thumbs. It’s wildly popular, which is ironic considering how basic the technology is for your 4G phones. But I digress…
The app inspired Sports Illustrated’s Andy Gray to seek the best sports-themed submissions for his SI.com gallery. Fans from all over Twitterverse sent in their top illustrations, which were narrowed down to 32 detailed and/or amusing selections.

Last Friday was the celebrity charity basketball game that pitted the Redskins against their geographical Baltimore Ravens rivals. What amazed most about the game is how much raw athleticism the players had to perform ably in two sports.
I wouldn’t bet on them in a high-stakes ping pong tournament, but there was a comfort level on the court that led to good-natured showboating and high-flying slam dunks.
The pictures from the event were posted on Golden Era Entertainment’s Facebook page mid-week, but with jersey-mania, it was worth waiting until Friday.
Enjoy the high-flying Redskins action as we recap all of the Redskins dunks: Read more »
