Judgment day for Merriman?
On her Twitter page, which as of Sunday night was blocked from public viewing, Tila Tequila Nguyen promises that she will address the situation on Tuesday. In a tweet, she described Tuesday as "judgment day." "I haven't release an official statement on what happened yet because I didn't lie, so no need to release 3 statements to 'cover' myself," she said in a backhanded slap at Shawne Merriman's contention that he prevented her from leaving his house because she was intoxicated.
Danica destined for NASCAR
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out Danica Patrick plans to give NASCAR a try. After all, why would she use her summer vacation to tour North Carolina race shops if she had no intention of trying out stock cars? She's twice been to Tony Stewart's place and visited shops owned by Joe Gibbs, Richard Childress, Jack Roush and Michael Waltrip. She's sought advice from Chip Ganassi, who owns both IndyCar and NASCAR teams, and last week spent time with Stewart, who has driver championships in both series.

Ozzie takes blame for stinky Sox
White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has an exit strategy. "If I'm going to get fired, everything in my office -- everything -- is going on eBay, and I'm going to give that money to somebody else," said Guillen, who accepted blame Monday for the White Sox's August skid. "I don't want to see that stuff anymore." Guillen said he and his coaching staff -- of which only third-base coach Jeff Cox has not played for the Sox -- have taken the losses particularly hard. "It's my fault. I can say that right now, I can say that tomorrow, I can say it two weeks later. I took this job to take the blame. My players win games, and I will take the blame every time we lose."
