Before we fully dive into this week's best (and funniest) sports moments, I should introduce this feature. "Hunter's Prowl" will track what I'm watching — football, basketball, baseball, hockey, MMA — delivering highlights, commentary, analysis and more.
Basically, I want this to feel like one giant living room where we're all cracking a few cold ones and chatting about the latest and greatest goings on in the wonderful world of sports. Leave comments so we can discuss. Call me out when I utter a horrible take. Get loose and have some fun.

That's just beautiful. You tell 'em, kid.
I'm sorry. I apologize for starting the Prowl with this but... Really? Really?
On Instagram Live, Antonio Brown said:
*”If your team got guaranteed money, they want to get to know me and work with me, tell them to call me.”
*He now wants to be known not as “A.B.” but as “Mr. Big Chest.”

This has progressed from alarming to entertaining to hilarious to downright sad since the season ended. Unbelievable.
So you wanna be an Ultimate Fighter?
No, you probably don't. This is insane. Paul Felder fought James Vick Saturday — and won — but not without taking some serious damage.
Paul Felder suffered a collapsed lung in the closing minutes of his fight against James Vick last night, his manager Brian Butler told ESPN. Doctors believe the lung was punctured when he took a shot to the ribs at the end of the third round. ...

Fighting through a collapsed lung? How is that even possible? T-u-f-f.
I'm not sure the title of this video is accurate, but it's fun nonetheless.
Stick around to the end for some Ben Roethlisberger action and a classic from Jon Gruden:

The NBA All-Star Game happened and... meh.
I like basketball. I like the NBA. I like following great plays and players.
But I'm not crazy about this game. It's Pro Bowl-levels of silliness.
That said, there were some pretty wild highlights, as expected, this year. Enjoy:

If you've been following this Prowl for a bit, you know I love throwback clips.
And this one is my favorite in quite some time. Who does that to Larry Allen? WHO?! Reggie White, that's who.
The greatest pass-rush move of all time?
Reggie White's hump move was pretty much unstoppable. pic.twitter.com/1mFaGMAwUO
