Truth & Rumors
C-Rod files for divorce
The wife of New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez has filed for a divorce in a Miami court. Cynthia Rodriguez cited the All-Star's alleged infidelity in her Miami-Dade County Family Court filing Monday. She said Rodriguez has "emotionally abandoned his wife and children." The filing comes days after the Yankees third baseman was linked to Madonna in several media reports. His wife later visited the Paris home of rocker Lenny Kravitz, who said she came to France to escape the media frenzy in New York and denied anything improper happened. (Associated Press)
Packers' options for Favre
The Green Bay Packers have four choices when it comes to Brett Favre and his apparent desire to return to the NFL. There's no timetable for a solution to this issue. The outcome depends largely on how hard Favre pushes his desire to return. The first option seemingly is out of the question. The second option -- cutting Favre -- could become a reality if Favre insists he wants to play. If the Packers aren't interested in giving him away, they could explore the third option -- a trade. However, a deal could be difficult, especially if teams felt the Packers would have to release him anyway, and he could be had without giving up anything. The fourth option -- convincing Favre to stay retired -- seemingly would be the best for the Packers. (Green Bay Gazette)
Miles making a comeback?
According to the Boston Globe, Darius Miles recently worked out for the World Champion Boston Celtics and had an "impressive" showing. From the story: "An NBA source said the Celtics surprisingly worked out Blazers free agent small forward Darius Miles yesterday and he had an impressive workout. Miles missed last season while recovering from knee surgery." This has well-chronicled implications on the Blazers: if Miles returns to the NBA and plays in 10 games in a season, during either of the next two seasons, his salary will count against the Blazers' salary cap. The team is responsible for paying the remaining $27.25 million of his Blazers' contract, but it does not count against the team's cap because his knee injury was labeled career ending.
