1 Joe Torre

If we were the Yanks' skipper we wouldn't wait for The Boss to make up his mind, we'd fly out to Tampa, open the door of the Steinbrenner residence and quit Half Baked style. We're still not sure who the "cool" one would be though.

2 Tony Romo

So those Brett Favre comparisons turned out to be true after all. Cowboys fans can only hope they see more of Romo playing like Favre circa 1996 rather than Favre circa 2006 heading into the "Duel in Dallas" this week.

3 Luc Robitaille

In his quest to draw a Hollywood crowd to Kings games he threw a swanky shindig in Beverly Hills with Jerry Bruckheimer and staged a red-carpet entrance for players before the home opener. If L.A. can ever play as hard as Luc works it might be able to make a run like that Mickey Mouse team in Anaheim.

4 Cheaters

Marion Jones had to give back her Olympic Medals, Floyd Landis had to give up his Tour de France yellow jersey, Michael Vick may have to give up his signing bonus. If they're anything like O.J., they'll be coming after their stuff in a few years.

5 Trojans

Could things get worse for USC? First, it suffers the biggest upset in college football history (according to bookies), then Matt Leinart is lost for the NFL season with a broken collarbone and now Reggie Bush is winless while being investigated by the NCAA for taking payments while he was in school.

6 Justin Timberlake

He brought Sexy Back to Green Bay. Not with a FutureSexLoveShowConcertThing but by bringing Jessica Biel to Lambeau Field for Sunday night's Bears-Packers.

7 Erin Andrews

While the Illini football fans gave Andrews their full attention and let her paint their noses, South Carolina's Eric Norwood nearly turned his back to her while he paid respect to the school's band. When was the last time Andrews got upstaged by band members?

8 Timeouts

Something has to be done about football's newest trick play -- coaches calling a TO during a field goal to nullify a game-winning kick. Nick Folk stuck it to Dick Jauron on Monday, but we'd love to see a coach pull that on a missed or blocked field goal and watch his team lose because he tried to be sneaky.

9 TV

Never before has sports television been as scrutinized. Nobody likes TBS, nobody was able to see the biggest upsets in college football (USC-Stanford was on Versus, Michigan-App. St. was on the Big Ten Network) and every league is trying to create their own network.

10 Britney Spears

We just have three words for our favorite train wreck: Stay at home!
