We received several e-mails yesterday from people telling us that Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson is dating Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett, and now it's being reported that the couple is engaged. This has prompted NextRound.net to examine the phenomenon of mediocre NFL players dating and/or marrying Playboy Playmates.
We have no idea what's going on with the Raiders and we think there should be a rule that states no member of the media is allowed to report that Lane Kiffin is gonna be fired ever again. But at least two amusing links came out of this. First, a San Jose Mercury-News reporter got into a very heated argument with a Raiders employee yesterday. And Rumors & Rants has a list of possible coaching replacements that you definitely won't see anywhere else.
Thoughts From The Jockstrap compares NBA players to legendary classic rock stars, such as The Beatles, AC/DC, Eric Clapton and Led Zeppelin. (Warning: Link contains strong language.)
It's been reported for a couple of months now that Derek Jeter had something going on with Friday Night Lights' star Minka Kelly. Of course, Jeter would never confirm or even address the story, and there was never any proof that the pair even knew one another -- until now.

Getting blown out by the Chargers wasn't the only embarrassment for Jets fans last night. ... We're not sure what's more fascinating: that there's a golfer named Boo Weekley or this clip of Boo Weekely doing a Happy Gilmore impersonation at this past weekend's Ryder Cup. ... The Astros and their fans are still not happy with playing those games against the Cubs in Milwaukee and their showing their anger with these T-shirts.

Tom Hirliman, of Ernsthofen, Austria, writes, "This is what happens when the team you root for has been horrible forever and wins on a last second field goal to go 3-0. Mind you this is a bar in NYC, not Buffalo. BEST FANS IN THE NFL!" Tom wasn't kidding about the Bills' fans reaction to beating Oakland on Sunday. We hate to see what these fans would've done had Scott Norwood's field goal not gone wide right.
Sure, the injury happened a while ago, but videos like this one are still a must-watch.
We can't really describe this clip. Just watch it. Salma Hayek is in it. That should be explanation enough. (Thanks to Tyler W., of New York, for the link.)
Martin Smith, of Billings, Mont., sends in this amusing clip that provides guys with all the details they need to know about how to give another guy a hug.
