If you enjoyed a helping of Emmitt Smith and Clyde Drexler in your reality TV diet, you'll be happy to know that more sports figures will be coming to your small-screen next fall. Among those making their reality TV debut are John Elway, Gabrielle Reece, Laird Hamilton and Bill Cowher.

Hey, if anyone can make a comeback at age 48, it's Rickey Henderson. Someone's even created a Web site supporting Ricky's cause.

It's spring -- the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and middle-aged men are walking around Vermont completely naked.
Under the Influence

Secretariat Memories
As you prepare for Saturday's Preakness Stakes, here's a look back at the greatest performance in the sport's history.
