Feel the Love

Friendship has been a major theme in sports the past few days. Whether it's Tom Brady chasing Julian "My Guy" Edelman down in the endzone or Boogie Cousins fist-pounding Omri Casspi for fixing his headband, athletes are going the extra mile to show their love. On Sunday, Caroline Wozniacki ran the NYC Marathon and Serena Williams was at the finish line to greet her. The two tennis stars have become great friends in the months since Rory McIlory unceremoniously dumped Wozniacki over the phone. Here's a closer look at their friendship.

A-Rod Urine Update

I don't think there are going to be any holiday card exchanges this year between Alex Rodriguez and the Sucart family. Yuri Succart is the cousin to whom A-Rod gave hush money to keep silent about his PED use. “I want you to put this in the paper,” Sucart's wife, Carmen, told the New York Daily News. “Alex is so poor, the only thing he has is money. He sleeps with his money, he will die with his money.” And if that isn't enough, Carmen also says that A-Rod once peed on a wall in the Sucart family home (which he owned) to mark it as his territory.

Odds & Ends

Tom Brady will make cameo appearances in two movies this summer ... David Ortiz got scammed by purchasing imitation diamonds ... Fun with photoshop and the NYC Marathon ... The president of a Korean baseball league team was forced to resign after he was caught spying on his own players ... Joel McHale nominated Russell Wilson for Sportsman of the Year ... You gotta be an enormous Derek Jeter fan to buy all this dirt ... As if college students needed another reason to love Taco Bell ... Power rankings of NFL announcers. Cris Collinsworth did not do very well ... This video of Devon Still meeting his daughter at the airport is everything.
