Bill Simmons may be having the last laugh. At the very least, he seems to be having the last manicure.

ESPN hit its multi-platform superstar with a three-week suspension on Sept. 24, following a profane podcast rant in which he called NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a "liar" and seemingly dared his bosses to do something about it. The announcement of the punishment led Simmons' fans to flood Twitter with #FreeSimmons messages and sparked speculation about the Grantland founder's future at The Worldwide Leader In Sports. It also seemingly freed up Simmons to enjoy himself. While his Twitter account has remained dormant throughout the suspension, Simmons has posted several images to his Instagram account that suggest he has been having a wonderful, relaxing time.

From the golfing and parties with Jimmy Kimmel to the picturesque waterfront views, here is a look at Simmons' suspension vacation.
