The Bottom 10: Yankees, Owens, Stoops are week's worst

The Week's Worst In Sports
 
BECKHAM'S L.A. FANS
Not exactly a Hollywood ending

Barely a year after his blockbuster debut, it looks like the Hollywood story of the hunky midfielder/Posh Spice S.O. will fade out anticlimactically with him playing out the string for the Major League Soccer's Galaxy after he completes his real job with AC Milan in July.
 
THE ATMOSPHERE AT VALLEY RANCH
There must be a way to get Pacman Jones back

The careers of several TV and print journalists -- accustomed to beginning their stories with "Controversial wide receiver Terrell Owens today criticized ..." -- got significantly duller when the Dallas Cowboys unceremoniously dumped T.O.
 
DARRYL STRAWBERRY
Also, the steroids wouldn't have mixed with the coke

The former Mets slugger, in empathizing with Alex Rodriguez's steroid use, says that "Hell, yeah, I would've used them," but that he was "too old" to try them by the time they came around in the '90s when he was a backup.
 
MLB NETWORK
Only a real baseball man, though, has Fernando Vina on the tip of his tongue

After learning that he had mistakenly said "Fernando Vina" when he meant to say "Fernando Valenzuela," host Matt Vasgersian said, on the air: "What the f--- is that?"
 
NASCAR IMAGE
If we weren't so mature, we'd make a "Smokey and the Bandit" joke

Dean Combs, a former driver and crew chief for Junior Johnson, was charged with "making non-tax paid liquor" after a 300-gallon still was found on his North Carolina property.
 
YANKEES TICKET PLAN
Has anyone told these guys they haven't won a World Series since 2000?

The Pinstripers' inaugural season ticket plan in the new stadium includes a field-level seat that costs $26,325.
 
ORIOLES TICKET PLAN
Then again, a season ticket doesn't cost 26 grand

A Baltimore fan can get a free ticket for a game at Camden Yards during the month of his or her birthday, although not for any of the 19 dates when the O's are playing either the Yankees or the Red Sox.
 
CARMELO ANTHONY
At least he's no Scottie Pippen

Reversing the celebrated trend of staying on the bench when a coach orders you onto the court, the Denver Nuggets forward refused to come out of the game and was suspended for a game.
 
OKLAHOMA'S OFFENSIVE LINE
Now that's an offensive line

It would be an understatement to say that Coach Bob Stoops called out his QB protectors at the start of spring practice, saying that they are the "weak link of the team," that their "work ethic" and "attitude" need to improve, and that they've been "very inconsistent that way in how they work and their toughness and discipline."
 
THE TV SPORTS GRID
Stoops wanted the gig, but he was afraid his O-line would embarrass the whole state

Though spring games are generally tedious affairs of significance mostly to coaches, alumni and draftniks, ESPN will do a national broadcast of Alabama's A-Day intrasquad scrimmage on April 18.
