It was reported on Monday that Derek Jeter tried to put the moves on actress Sienna Miller over the weekend, but got rebuffed. However, the Yankees shortstop wouldn't be deterred. The next night, according to the New York Daily News, he had "a line of women waiting to meet him," and "looked like he was really enjoying himself." Wouldn't we all?

It's That Hard To Believe
In a very amusing analogy, The Cousins of Ron Mexico are calling what happen to Keith Van Horn (being asked to come out of retirement for $4 million) "the real life equivalent of one of those Nigerian e-mail scams." And they've even provided the e-mail that one could imagine Mark Cuban send to Van Horn. (Warning: Link contains strong language)

Fanhouse has the scoop on what Dwight Howard wanted to accomplish with his memorable Superman dunk. "Yeah, but you see thing was, I wanted to throw it in," he said. "That way it would have looked a lot more cooler, and people would have been like, there's no way that somebody could possibly do that but Superman."
Singing Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs recently held a charity event during which Bruce Bowen danced to Flashdance -- while dressed as Jennifer Beals, Tim Duncan re-enacted Jersey Boys and Tony Parker and Eva Longoria spoofed Tell Me More from Grease. Luckily for us, Fan IQ has video of all this.
Early Exits
It's bad enough Sports Night is on this list of the 14 shows that should have been saved from cancellation. Friday Night Lights better not suffer the same fate.

Random Video Of The Day
A couple of weeks back, we posted this video of an ingenious prank, in which 250 people decided to stop what they were doing all at once and freeze in New York's Grand Central Station, thus freaking out passersby. Now, the folks at Virginia Tech tried the same thing in their dining hall.
