I'm not saying you should or shouldn't give this show a chance, but if you're looking for something to watch during these summer TV doldrums, ABC is bringing back Superstars tomorrow night. The show will team up eight athletes with a "celebrity" and the pairs will compete in different sporting events. The teams are: Terrell Owens and model/actress Joanna Krupa; Robert Horry and model/actress Estella Warren; Bode Miller and Extreme Makeover carpenter Paige Hemmis; freeskier Kristi Leskinen and Dancing With the Stars' Maksim Chmerkovskiy; Lisa Leslie and host/actor Dan Cortese; Jennifer Capriati and actor David Charvet; Brandi Chastain and Julio Iglesias Jr.; and last, but not least, Jeff Kent and model/actress Ali Landry. Based on this cast, I can only recommend two links. This gallery of Doritos Girl Landry and this classic clip of Cortese.
In the past, Hot Clicks has featured links to pieces on sports fans we love to hate. The Big Picture, however, is taking the opposite approach, and has come up with eight sports fans we love to love.
Love These Guys!
A few weeks ago, I told you about two fans who dressed up as umpires and mimicked the calls of the men in blue during a Yankees-Blue Jays game. Well, the two fans have taken their show on the road. They "performed" over the weekend in Washington, and Fanhouse caught up with the duo and got the story behind their act.
A steady flow of "the next Erin Andrews" e-mails always come into my inbox, and few actually live up to the hype ... but here's an exception. Guillaume, of Paris, says, "In honor of the U.S. men's soccer team miracle Sunday, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee post a picture of Sara Carbonero, the sideline reporter for a channel called (I am not making this up) SEXTA. She is even the only person to get an interview out of David Villa, the tournament's best player." And Martin Shields, of Fort Collins, Colo., said, "Jimmy, Erin Andrews just got pushed out of the limelight by this sideline reporter for Spain's Telecinco." Listen, when a new sideline reporter comes onto the scene, there's no need to compare her to E.A. There can be more than one absurdly hot sideline reporter -- as proved by Carbonero.
There's always lots made of people kissing the Stanley Cup, but the Wimbledon trophy gets its share of action, too. In honor of the tournament getting under way today, here's a gallery of people kissing the trophy.
