Rihanna is no stranger to sexy Instagram photos. Check out her feed (@badgalriri) at any time of day and you’re guaranteed to find countless photos of the singer posing in barely there outfits.
But the 24-year-old’s recent post showing her dressed in nothing more than an Ottawa Senators jersey has tipped off an internet craze: #Rihannaing.
Twitter users scrambled to post photos of themselves sporting their hockey jerseys – and nothing else.
Go Sens Go….

That’s a mouthful!
The bloody black and white zombie 3-pack is a fantastic new addition to the Walking Dead merch collection and it’s one that real zombie fans are sure to enjoy, down to every last gory detail.
The Bicycle Girl might be the most famous of the show’s undead set, but the Well Zombie and the RV Zombie definitely gave us some memorable –and unpleasant– moments, as well. Here, they’re rendered in a classic, creepy black and white, but the blood and gore retain their colour as grisly highlights.

If you’re a zombie fan, you’ll triple your undead goodness with this Walking Dead box set, rendered in classic black and white.
From McFarlane toys, you get Hannah (a.k.a. Bicycle Girl), the well zombie and the RV zombie. Each one features truly grisly detail, some charming accessories and a wee bit of articulation– you can’t blame ‘em not being too flexible, really. They’re dead.

With a hood and tools bloodied from her encounters with the walking dead, MICHONNE comes to us direct from the San Diego Comic Con.
Armed with a katana and some unlikely (and sort of likely) tools, Michonne looks awesome as a 5-inch figure from McFarlane. While you’re waiting for Season 3 of the show to bring Danai Gurira’s take on the character, you can at least snag this toy and use it as a daily reminder of how awesome you could be if you were a little more like Michonne.

Article from National Post.
Canadian Olympic hero Sidney Crosby won’t be wearing the Maple Leaf next month at the IIHF world championship in Finland and Sweden.
Crosby’s agent, Pat Brisson, said his client will take a pass on the worlds to focus on training and preparing for the 2012-13 NHL season.
“Sidney feels there is an opportunity ahead to spend the next four months getting ready for next season,” Brisson said in an email to Postmedia News. “He really didn’t have a full summer to train last year as he was injured and not 100%.”
The star centre with the Pittsburgh Penguins scored the overtime winner in the gold-medal game at the 2010 Winter Olympics. He also won a gold medal with the Canadian junior team in 2005 and a silver medal in 2004.
Crosby was named the top forward in his only world championship experience after leading the tournament in scoring in 2006 with eight goals and eight assists. Canada finished fourth in that tournament.
Concussion and neck injuries limited Crosby to 22 regular-season games with the Penguins this year, however his eight goals and 29 assists gave him a career-best 1.68 points per game average despite playing less than 20 minutes a game for the first time in his seven-year career.
In six games in the Penguins’ first-round playoff to the Philadelphia Flyers this year, Crosby had three goals and five assists.
Hockey Canada has already named 17 players to its world championship roster. The team is expected to be filled out by players on teams eliminated in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
The Canadian team, coached by former Calgary Flames bench boss Brent Sutter, opens play on May 4 against Slovakia in Helsinki, Finland

Phoenix Coyotes forward launched himself into Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa midway through the first period of Tuesday night’s game. Hossa did not have the puck, and did not appear to see Torres, who had enough time and space in front of him to have known both of those facts.
Torres left his feet. Hossa went down hard right in front of the Chicago bench. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher, and then to a Chicago hospital, where he was released later in the night.
Torres was, amazingly, not penalized on the play.
