Hulk Hogan talks WWE return in The Buzz podcast; Jehane 'Gigi' Paris is Fox-y
Jimmy checked in from vacation for the best reason possible: He recorded a podcast with Hulk Hogan.

NAPOLI ABSOLUTELY DECIMATED A BASEBALL
In the 11th inning in Toronto on Tuesday night, Red Sox slugger Mike Napoli turned on a Sergio Santos offering and sent it into orbit until the upper deck got in the ball's way.

BECAUSE FOOTBALL SEASON COINCIDES WITH "THE SIMPSONS" MARATHON, I SUPPOSE
Someone got a haircut showing Homer Simpsons wearing an RG3 jersey with the Washington logo. Sometimes it's better to not ask "why." [H/T recordsANDradio]
LET'S PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
One "Simpsons" item plus one Ice Bucket Challenge item equals Homer Simpson's very own Ice Bucket Challenge video. Seriously.
THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY
Yesterday you probably learned about USC cornerback Josh Shaw, supposedly a hero for rescuing his drowning nephew. Less than 24 hours later, police fielded numerous calls casting doubt on the tale. The school is investigating. UPDATE: Shaw admitted to school officials that he lied.
