Lily Aldridge gave her fans a bit of a surprise Wednesday.

The superstar model dropped a black and white snap of herself on Instagram in a swimsuit for her 5.3 million followers, and I’m sure they enjoyed it a lot. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

It’s not every day that we see golden content from Aldridge. She’s not known for cutting loose on a regular basis, but it’s snaps like the one below that remind us that she certainly has the skills necessary. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Sophie Turner showed up and showed out when the New York Rangers played Tuesday night against the Detroit Red Wings.

The “Game of Thrones” star was put on the jumbotron during the game, and downed a glass of wine like a champ. She didn’t even hesitate to throw it back. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Give the video a watch below. You might be standing up and applauding by the time it’s done playing. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

If you weren’t already all-in on Turner, then you absolutely have to be after that stunning performance. Honestly, that might have been a more impressive performance than what she’s done on the show. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

She’s truly a woman after my heart. You can’t chug a glass of wine, and then expect me not to immediately notice. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

Way too many famous people are super stuffy, and afraid to cut loose with us common folks. They have to sit in suites and not get near the unwashed masses. (SLIDESHOW: 60 Times Abigail Ratchford Wore Almost Nothing)

Clearly, Turner is down to ride with just about anybody. It really doesn’t get much more fringe class than chugging booze in a public setting.

The NCAA tournament begins Thursday, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Throughout the history of March Madness, there have been lots of incredible moments. There’s Christian Laettner’s shot to beat Kentucky for Duke, North Carolina State’s improbable run, Wisconsin upsetting Kentucky, Butler making back-to-back finals and so many more. (RELATED: The March Madness Bracket Has Been Released)

Luckily, there’s a great video that captures all of those chilling moments for the fans. If you’re a fan of college basketball, then you need to see this video.

It’s the perfect way to prepare for the games on the horizon. Give it a watch below. (RELATED: Watch Wisconsin Beat Kentucky In The 2015 Final Four)

Who else is ready to run through a wall right now? I’m so amped. I’m not sure that I can wait until tomorrow. I want the games to start, and I want them to start right now.

There are always so many great storylines to follow. Who will win it all? Who will go down in flames? These are the questions that keep us on the edge of our seats as every second ticks off the clock.

The tournament is all about the highest of highs (beating Kentucky), and the lowest of lows (losing to Duke in the title game). You have to keep your head on a swivel at all times.

I don’t want to be friends with anybody who disagrees with the monumental importance of this sporting event.  Check out the entire bracket below, and let us know in the comments your favorite memories.

Abigail Ratchford cut loose Tuesday night on Instagram.

Ratchford, who is a fan favorite here at The Smoke Room, posted a photo of herself wearing white lingerie, and her fans seemed to appreciate it. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

I say that because the spicy shot currently has north of 80,000 likes, and I think you’ll understand why once you see it. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Give it a glance below. You’re almost certainly going to like what you see. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

“SEAL Team” is finally back.

When we flip on our TVs tonight, the hit military show will return to CBS for a new episode in the second season.

The plot of the new episode, according to the YouTube description of the preview, is: “Bravo Team works with the Congolese Army on a covert mission to capture the head of a rebel militia group. Also, Jason argues with Emma about college, and Sonny and Davis make a big decision about their future.”

This day has been a long time coming, and I can’t wait. It feels like it’s been so long since we had a new episode. Of course, it was only two months ago, but I’m sure you all get my point.

You sometimes just know when a day is going to be a good one, and that’s exactly what we’re getting with a new episode to brighten up our Wednesday. (RELATED: ‘SEAL Team‘ Is Excellent In New Episode ‘Things Not Seen’)

If you’re not watching what Bravo Team is up to, then you absolutely need to give “SEAL Team” a chance. It’s not just an action show, although there is plenty of action.

It puts a ton of focus on what our brave warriors do in the meantime of their private lives. It shows the immense toll combat can have on the family unit and the mind.

The military drama is a lot more than just shooting people and blowing stuff up.

Tune in tonight at 10 p.m. EST on CBS. Make sure you’ve got the time right because it’s new. I wouldn’t want any of you to miss it because it should be great to have the team back in action.

There is officially zero chance there will be any new episodes of “Westworld” coming out in 2019.

According to HN Entertainment, filming on the third season won’t end until October 4, 2019. Filming is set to begin in a few days.

If there was any hope at all that the third season of the HBO hit show would come out this year, you can go ahead and officially snuff out that flame.

There’s no chance in hell it wraps filming in October and is done before 2020. At this point in time, I wouldn’t get your hopes up for anything sooner than May or June of next summer. (RELATED: Jimmi Simpson Says He’s ‘Not Invited’ Back For Season Three Of ‘Westworld’)

Why does HBO do this to us? Why do they make us wait so long for new content. It’s just awful. It’s borderline torture to deprive us of fresh episodes for more than a year. We might end up going two years without a new episode at this rate. (RELATED: HBO Hands Out Massive Raises To Stars Of One Of Its Biggest Hits. Here’s How Much They’ll Make)

As a huge fan of the show, that doesn’t make me happy at all.

Having said all of that, I am still super pumped for season three. After what we saw at the end of season two, there are limitless possibilities to what we might get.

Will it all be outside of the park? Will some of it be outside of the park? Will the Man in Black bounce back? Again, the options are truly incredible.

It better be damn good if we’re waiting so long. Luckily, HBO hasn’t disappointed us yet, even if they do make us wait seemingly forever.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is apparently going through some stuff and wants to be left alone.

ODB was recently shipped from the Giants to the Browns, and I’m not sure he’s handling it super well, judging from a recent Instagram post. (RELATED: New York Giants Trade Odell Beckham Jr. To The Cleveland Browns)

Beckham wrote the following in part in a now-deleted Instagram post, according to ProFootballTalk:

I appreciate the love honestly, but at this moment for the next couple of day,s I’m goin dark. I won’t be around, phone is gone, with all due respect, please don’t text/call/FaceTime unless it’s of the utmost importance. I really need some time to vibe and just get away, process, reevaluate some of the things in my life, as much has changed for me recently. I’m doin amazing thanks for askin!!!

This isn’t what you want to see if you’re a Browns fan. It doesn’t sound too serious, but it does sound like Beckham isn’t exactly embracing his change of scenario.

Nobody goes “dark” when things are going incredibly well. At the very least, I’ve never heard of such a thing, and he was pretty explicit that he didn’t want to be contacted. Not a whole lot of wiggle room there.

Everybody knows that the former Giants star is one of the most passionate guys in the game, and he has a wide range of emotions. He’s been that way ever since he entered the league.

Hopefully, this is nothing more than him just getting his head straight and getting all the changes straightened out in his mind.

If a star player’s mental health isn’t in check, then he won’t play well on the field.

The first trailer for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” was released Wednesday morning, and it is awesome.

The plot of the film, according to IMDB, is: “A faded TV actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.”

Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie all star in the Quentin-Tarantino-directed film, which takes place during Charles Manson’s reign of terror in Los Angeles. If the trailer is evidence of what’s to come, fans have every reason to be excited. (RELATED: Check Out The Incredible Photos Of Brad Pitt And Leonard DiCaprio On The Set Of The Charles Manson Film)

Give it a watch below:

What are we thinking here? I’m thinking it looks damn good. The cast is incredible, Tarantino is one of the best directors in the game and Charles Manson case always generates attention.

I think it looks awesome. Plus, Robbie as Sharon Tate looks borderline chilling. Her death is still one of the most famous murders in the history of America.

You can catch it in theaters July 26. You know that I’ll be watching.

Former Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis is headed to the Detroit Lions.

For those of you who may not remember, Lewis was the receiver who got rocked in the NFC championship on the most blatant pass interference of all time, but no flag was thrown.

That allowed the Rams to beat the Saints and advance to the Super Bowl in 2002. (RELATED: Patriots Beat The Rams In The Super Bowl)

Now, Lewis finally has some good news because he got a free agency deal with Detroit. Financial details of the contract haven’t been revealed yet.

To be totally honest, I don’t know a ton about Lewis outside of the fact he was the victim of the most egregious no-call in NFL history.

There’s really no other way to explain it. He got lit up in brutal fashion, and the refs did literally nothing about it. It’s not like it happened in the first quarter. It happened as the final minutes of the game were ticking away. Truly a spectacular failure. (RELATED: Sean Payton Spent Three Days Eating Ice Cream And Watching Netflix After NFC Championship Game Loss)

Hopefully, he provides some help in the passing game, which has already added tight end Jesse James and Danny Amendola.

Things appear to be shaping up nicely in Detroit, and I’m excited. Of course, I’m excited every year, and we always manage to lose. It’s just what life as a Lions fan is all about.

The American Athletic Conference has agreed to a monster television deal with ESPN.

Sports Business Journal reported the following Tuesday:

The American Athletic Conference will get $1B for its media rights from ESPN over 12 years, according to sources. The average of $83.3 million per year is about four times what the AAC was making in its previous rights agreement with the net, which paid the league just over $20 million annually. The new agreement begins in ’20-21 and runs through the ’31-32 academic year.

The annual per-school average of $6.94M provides each AAC school with nearly $5M more in annual revenue.

I couldn’t believe this was real when I saw the numbers. The AAC? Is this a joke? Outside of UCF, literally nobody cares about the AAC. Nobody without ties to the conference gives a damn about their football games. (RELATED: Clemson Beats Alabama For National Title)

Sure, we all enjoy UCF tearing it up, but I don’t think people are clamoring to see UConn and Tulsa battle it out. What an incredible high-stakes matchup that’ll be over the next 12 years!

If this is the kind of money the AAC is getting these days, I can’t even begin to imagine what the Big Ten and SEC could get today if they renegotiated everything. What are we thinking? $10 billion? $15 billion?

Both conferences are about 100 times more important the AAC, and they just got a cool billion. These are the facts, and they don’t care about your feelings.

I’m honestly floored they got $1 billion. Again, outside of UCF, I wouldn’t pay $10 for a ticket to most AAC games, and I’m about as rabid of a college football fan as you’ll ever see.

Something tells me that ESPN is really going to regret this decision.
