Well that didn’t take long. After only 15 months of wedded bliss, Chris Evert and Greg Norman have split up. This seems ironic given that Norman had to fork out one of the largest divorce settlements in history when he was forced to pay his ex-wife $103 million dollars. He had been married for 26 years to his former wife.
This marriage to Evert lasted a fraction of that long. Perhaps a tell tale sign that things weren’t going to work out had to do with something he said right after he and Evert got married. …read more
Is it too soon for Michael Vick to get an endorsement deal? Apparently not. Not, at least, where Nike is concerned. The shoe giant said they are not going to do a Michael Vick shoe, but they are going to pay him to wear Nike apparel.
If you’ll remember, Nike did have a shoe deal with Vick before he went to prison. They made several thousand “Vick V” shoes and then when Vick pleaded guilty to dog fighting they stopped making them. There were left with the ones they made it and end up costing Nike …read more
Apparently former NFL great Junior Seau is bored with retirement. Or perhaps he missed being hit. Why else would he purposely put himself in the ring with a bull?
TMZ reports that Seau was a guest at the Professional Bull Rider’s Invitational this weekend and jumped in the ring to participate. Why? We don’t know. I suppose when you’re constantly up against guys who are 300-some pounds, running with something as “harmless” as an angry bull seems like no big deal.
Catch this video which shows Seau getting hit.
It apparently looks worse than …read more
It must have been all the romance flowing from her sister Khloe’s wedding to Lamar Odom over the weekend… because Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush are back on as a couple. The Kardashian ladies sure do love their athletes!
Kim and Reggie split in July, but still remained friendly. It was a very mature breakup, with both of them wishing the other well and not spilling any details of the relationship. (And how often do we see that in Hollywood? Or in non-famous couples, for that matter?)
Just one day after Khloe Kardashian married L.A. Lakers …read more
Why do people fight using Twitter? Especially famous people? Well it seems Terrell Owens and Rodney Harrison are doing just that. At least, on Terrell’s side of things. Rodney seemed to start things by calling Terrell a clown. He said he’s only interested in his own stats and not whether his team wins or loses.
After Terrell gave a press conference following the Bills loss to New Orleans on Sunday, Rodney reiterated his original “he’s a clown” response. T.O. for his part, was short and grumpy (to put it mildly) that his streak …read more
Give a Chicago Bear some blogging space (in say, the Chicago Tribune) and you will hear all about practice, the upcoming game, fines, and passing gas. Or should I say a fine about passing gas. Turns out the Bears fine their boys when they let one go – to the tune of $20. Anthony Adams writes:
In the film room, we make up lists for fines. Like (passing gas) is a $20 fine. If you fall asleep, that’s like $20. If you jump offside in practice and we see it on the practice film, that’s $20 and $100 …read more
First there was the baby rumor, and now the latest gossip about Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias is that they will get married. While this rumor has been around for quite awhile (after all, they’ve dated for eight years) this time the two were spotted at the Cartier store in Paris. Apparently they were in there for quite a while, certainly enough to check out some engagement rings.
Iglesias has said that he wants to get married to Kournikova but she keeps shying away from the subject. It was even rumored back in 2004 that they really did …read more
Do you think antics on the field and some fancy football in the end zone can help football players dance? A few of them have been on Dancing With the Stars (DWTS) now, and the latest rumor is that Chad Ochocinco will be joining the cast. The next cast for DWTS will be announced in January, with a show kick off in February.
Of course, if the Bengals make the Superbowl (pardon me while I laugh hysterically for minute…… hahahhaha…… okay I’m back), then the timing might interfere with his football schedule. Otherwise, he’d be cleared to go.
Would …read more
Dr. Oz has moved from Oprah to his own show, and he’s taking his “Ultimate Health Challenge” to none other than the NFC moms. Tomorrow, ten moms of NFC and AFC players (including Donovan McNabb and Kurt Warner’s moms) will learn about and conquer their health issues. They’ll be coached by “by former Tennessee Titans running back and Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George and his wife Taj.” (Taj, incidentally, was also on Survivor.)
Good to see that Dr. Oz is getting the football players involved with this! And what better time to do it than at the …read more
The NFL is an interesting league. Not only are most of the guys giants, but they are also quick and even (dare I say it?) graceful. Such is the case with Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Winston Justice anyway. He’s got the size (6 foot 7 and 320 pounds at last count), and he plays football so you know he can hit, but he also surfs in his spare time.
Can you see this guy on a surfboard?
Winston said that God blessed him balance, and I’d say I have to agree. Even more, his brother in …read more
