When asked by a fan earlier today if they should draft Larry Fitzgerald or Calvin Johnson in fantasy football, the Cardinals wideout gave the nod to Megatron. It's good to see Fitzgerald putting aside personal glory for what's important -- fantasy football truth!
If Anyone Deserves A Reality Show...It was announced today that Pete Rose and the Kiana Kim Family Project is coming to TLC. The show will highlight the wedding planning of 71-year-old Rose to his much younger Playboy model fiancee. (Thanks to Johnathan, of Birmingham, Ala., for the link.)
Go FishIf you have Showtime, I strongly suggest you check out The Franchise: A Season with the Miami Marlins tonight. Episode One aired last week, and it was excellent. Tonight's show will go behind-the-scenes as slugger Giancarlo Stanton undergoes knee surgery. You can watch a preview clip here. On a side note, keep an eye out for the wife of catcher Brett Hayes. She may trump Todd Heap's wife for the title of "best-looking wife from a sports-based reality show."
Lovely Lady Of The Day
Rosamund Pike :: Eamonn McCormack/WireImageAfter seeing Zoe Duchesne as the LLOD Tuesday, Justin Gaudin of Gulf Breeze, Fla., said, "Dude....a girl from CANADA gets LLOD? C'mon. Decent body, but she's CANADIAN! You better make this right with the so-hot Rosamund Pike." I have absolutely no idea what Justin's issue is with Canada (which is great), and I don't know why featuring actress Rosamund Pike, who is from England, counteracts featuring a Canadian. However, after checking out Pike, it was easy to see she deserved today's LLOD honors.
Lucky To Be AliveYou have to see what Jason Kidd's car looked like after he smashed it up while allegedly driving drunk last weekend.
E-Mail Of The DayTodd Aronson, of London, Ontario, says, "Hey Jimmy, you ran a story a little while back about the Chargers trying to recruit Chiefs fans to buy tickets. Well, times must be tough for the Browns as well. A few weeks ago my friend Brad received a call from 'Jim of the Cleveland Browns." Thinking he was getting his long overdue shot at being a running back, his dreams were dashed when Jim said, "I see you've been to the stadium in the past and we were wondering if we could interest you in some tickets for the upcoming season." This was interesting as we live in London, Ontario and we went to Cleveland as a group ONCE SEVEN YEARS AGO to visit our good friend Brent Kelly, who played hockey (obviously) for the Lake Erie Monsters (Colorado's farm team). We sat in the bleachers and suffered through a hangover/football game before we headed back North. Not quite as bad as recruiting other team's fans, but still digging deep. Looks like another long year for the few Browns fans still buying stubs."
