Jamie-Lynn Sigler won't be starring in her third HBO show. After appearing on The Sopranos and Entourage, it doesn't look like we'll see Sigler in Hard Knocks, when it begins on Aug. 11. The New York Postreported over the weekend that Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and Sigler are no longer dating.

Those of you who appreciate looking back on what the '80s had to offer will enjoy these next two items: This YouTube contains a few local commercials that featured the Detroit Tigers, with the Kirk Gibson-Kentucky Fried Chicken spot from 1987 as the highlight. (Thanks to Matt Totten, of Detroit, for the link.) Meanwhile, this blog (in French) has posted a great tribute video to the Montreal Expos.

Shaquille O'Neal was on Jimmy Kimmel's show last night to promote the new season of Shaq Vs. However, the duo touched on many other subjects during the funny interview, including LeBron James. Here's one snippet:

Kimmel: "With [LeBron James] leaving, did he consult you?"
Shaq: "No, not at all. I was at the crib, chillin' and the LeBronathon thing came on and he just said he was going to Miami, which was shock to everybody."
A marketing company in Akron has put up this billboard that takes a shot at the former hometown hero. Meanwhile, a month after leaving the Cavaliers, LeBron put an ad in today'sAkron Beacon-Journal to thank the people of Akron, but not the people of Cleveland. However, things are going smoothly with LeBron's new fans in Miami. A few places in South Beach have even invented LeBron James cocktails.
Speaking Of LeBron...
Apparently, someone posted on Nick Swisher's Wikipedia page that Tim Tebow -- naturally -- helped him propose to girlfriend Joanna Garcia. When asked about this, Swisher gave quite the response, saying, "That's total BS! (Bleep) no! I don't need some other dude to ask my girl to marry me. I'm a Major League Baseball player. I'm a man. I asked her on the balcony at my place in New York City. Tim Tebow wasn't there. You need to squash that story, dude."

Jason Martell, of Bathurst, New Brunswick Canada, says, "Hey J, just wanted to send this link of my buddy throwing out the first pitch at a Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox AA) game in May. We were driving the 10 hours from Canada for this game and some games in Boston and we told him that we had arranged for him to throw out the first pitch a couple hours before game time....The problem was that we were all several beers deep at that point except for the designated driver. Check out the Paul Byrd double wind up followed by the 30-foot fastball!
