We've said it before and we'll say it again: Entourage needs more Sloane, played by Emmanuelle Chriqui. Instead, however, we'll be getting Michael Phelps. The star of the 2008 Olympics is now set to present at the MTV music awards, host Saturday Night Live and appear in a cameo in the HBO comedy.

The Last Word On Tailgating Ideas

The e-mails about tailgating items haven't stopped coming. With the college season getting under way this weekend, we figured one last mention couldn't hurt. Bryan Kammer, of Davenport, Iowa, plugs the TableGater. Josh, of Norman, Okla., says "For sporting events, you can't beat this!" Ron, of Clifton, Va., comes through with "an interesting product for female tailgaters ... the videos need to be seen to be believed." Chris B., of Anderson, S.C., is all about the "Hitch-N-View." (they probably know what they're talking about) informs us about a grill grate that is laser cut to have college football logos right on the grill. Last, not but least, Boosh Magazine has two pages of tailgating gear that you might want to invest in.

Football Utopia comes up with a list of the best cities in which to watch football, with emphasis given to how the teams will look in the upcoming season.

E-Mail Of The Day

Ryo, of, Bronx, N.Y., writes, "Erin Andrews reported that Mike Davis from South Carolina was reprimanded for breaking into the refrigerator at the team's facilities. Please investigate what he was trying to obtain by breaking into that refrigerator." We heard this report, too, while we were trying to get a glimpse of Erin and rooting for the over 43 -- just for fun, of course. Erin looked mighty fine, as usual; the over 43 was another story. Anyway, we tried to find out just what was in that refrigerator that would make some bend the door, but all we could find, via (gotta love that!) was that Davis just wanted a drink. He must have been real thirsty.

Internet Venting has a tremendous post up titled, "Email Spamming 101: The A-Z Guide To Becoming Human Garbage." Even better than that, is's take on Facebook's annoying "People You May Know" feature. Speaking of Facebook, there's actually gonna be a movie about it.
