For those of you new to the site, you may not be familiar with the man crush battle royal editor Jeremy Conlin and I did last year: March Man Crushes.
You can click here for the rules, but basically we seeded a tournament that featured 64 guys that are totally man crush-worthy, and had them duke it out to determine the Grand Man Crush.
In the end, my choice Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson prevailed over Jeremy's pick, Jon Hamm, for the title.
Clearly, those two choices show what each of us values in a man. Jeremy wants to be a suave, good looking, suit wearing dude that everyone knows is well endowed.
I, on the other hand, want to have big muscles, get oiled up with cocoa butter and smash people with chairs while wearing a Speedo.
Both are certainly great ideals to strive for.
Anyways, while Jeremy and I are in the process of coming up with a new tournament to do later this month, let's revisit some of the biggest mistakes, trends and surprises from last year's March Man Crushes.

Legendary sportscaster Bob Lobel and host Joe Parello take a break from current sports stories to discuss the tremendous success of Boston's professional teams since 2001.
Since then, the Patriots have won three Super Bowls, the Red Sox three World Series titles, the Bruins a Stanley Cup and the Celtics an NBA Championship. Which of those teams is Bob's favorite, and which players and personalities will he always remember?
Plus, even in this era of greatness for Boston, how could things have been even better? All that, and more, on this special edition of "Catching Up With Bob Lobel."

|Find out what our editors think of LeBron's goofy-masked 61 points, and the other big stories of the week.|
Midweek #HotSportsTakes is a new weekly segment here on SuiteSports, where we will offer shallow and somewhat incendiary analysis on random hot-button sports topics of the day.
But hell, we may get sick of this after a week or two, so who knows if it will last. In the mean time, here are our thoughts on a few things floating around the sports world.
Ed. Note: Jeremy wimped out and wouldn't talk hockey, Jim Harbaugh being a sociopath or adorable huskies racing in the Iditarod. Don't worry, Joe's got you covered.

Kick it 40-plus yards for one, or run it from two yards out for two.
That’s the NFL’s new proposed extra point degree of difficulty for the once automatic play. Don’t know what to do except try for two most every time. Looks like that’s what they want the teams to do, hoping to add more excitement to an extra point.
Obviously, it does need something since most people use the extra point time to go to the bathroom in order to be back for a kickoff run back that rarely happens anymore either.
Give us our game back!

|The 76ers have no hope for this year, but with surprising rookie Michael Carter-Williams and the promise of a high pick in the loaded 2014 NBA Draft, Philly fans can dream of a better future.|
This time of year, so many people are talking about "tanking," and how it's ruining the NBA.
True, it is no fun when your favorite team is seemingly losing games on purpose now, so that it can be better later. But, is it really the worst thing in the world that teams like Philadelphia and Milwaukee are being realistic, tossing short-term goals out the window in favor of long-term ones?
I for one don't think so. In fact, I'm quite the fan of tanking, and here's why.
