Serena Williams has a wide array of interests -- from poker to guitar to fashion -- and she may start to pursue them all. Despite winning 13 Grand Slam singles titles, two Olympic gold medals and earning over $34 million, Serena admitted that she doesn't like tennis, or any sports for that matter. I'm guessing the umpires won't be too upset when she's gone.

Kansas basketball may be only ranked No. 14 in the nation, but when it comes to hot celebrity fans, they have the top spot locked down. The reason is Olivia Wilde, who became a Jayhawk fan after new boyfriend and Kansas native Jason Sudekis took her to a game against Howard last week.

It's Not Just Detroit That Hates Matt Millen
Even Matt Millen admits he stunk as general manager of the Detroit Lions. Let's see if he's as harsh grading himself as a TV analyst. Millen worked the Fiesta Bowl last night and the reviews were not good. Awful Announcing has all the details including my favorite criticism, "An empty Tostitos bag would be a upgrade over Matt Millen."
Bad Bet Of The Year
We're three days into 2012, but this college football fan says he lost $44,000 after making a halftime bet that the Badgers would beat Oregon in the Rose Bowl.
Photo Of The Day
When I'm not filling in for Jimmy, I run the SI Photo Blog and like to post funny and/or embarrassing photos of athletes. Today's photo is a doozy -- Nets forward Shelden Williams dunks so hard, the ball smacks him in the face after falling through the rim.
