Um, yeah, so about all those commercials featuring Kobe against LeBron, do you think Nike has puppets featuring Nene and Hedo, you know, just in case? Maybe Vitaminwater could have people debating whether they like the "Birdman" or "Superman."

WWE <i>Monday Night Raw</i>
Let's hope the WWE enjoyed its five minutes of mainstream fame. After Vince McMahon moved his show from Denver to Los Angeles in a highly publicized change of venue, the Staples Center looked like a Sparks game during <i>Raw</i> as the top half of the arena was curtained off because of sluggish ticket sales. At least for L.A. fans, the Lakers beat the Nuggets in the WWE's version of the game Monday.

Apparently Canseco's new job is to get beat up by as many has-beens and nobodies as possible. Not only did he get smacked around by Vai Sikahema and Danny Bonaduce in the States last year, but he traveled to Japan last weekend to get pummeled by 7-foot-2 sumo champion Hong Man Choi. Something tells me Canseco was much safer when he was doing steroids and playing baseball.

<i>Keeping Up with the Kardashians</i>
Here's what we learned on this week's episode of the show: The girls are clueless to the fact that professional athletes who live in other cities might not be totally faithful; Kim Kardashian knows how to hack into your voice mail (watch out, Reggie); and Rashad McCants got busted for cheating on Khloe Kardashian after multiple groupies left him messages.

The new UFC light heavyweight champion, the MMA's rock star division, is the best thing to happen to karate since Daniel LaRusso and Mr. Miyagi. Not only is he good (Machida pummeled formerly undefeated champion Rashad Evans), but the guy barely gets touched. He actually looks better after fights than he does coming into them.

Good to see Shockey still has his priorities in order. The New Orleans Saints' tight end capped his Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas by getting carted out off a pool party called "Rehab." The Saints say he was just "dehydrated." That's usually my excuse, too, when I'm in Vegas.

You know that pirate band that sings those not-so-catchy commercial jingles for FreeCreditReport.com during every commercial break for every game you've ever watched in the past year? Well, it looks like FreeCreditReport.com isn't so free, according to the Federal Trade Commission, and it's being forced to change its tune or go off the air. We're really, really, really hoping for the latter.

Do the Nationals not have spell-check in their system? Last month, Adam Dunn and Ryan Zimmerman had "Natinals" on the front of their jerseys. Then, during Memorial Day weekend, the Nationals were selling Teddy Roosevelt bobblehead dolls, but they spelled the former U.S. president's name "Rossevelt." The Nats should probably look to hire the winner of this week's Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.

Ron Jeremy and Shaquille O'Neal
It's nice to see that Stan Van Gundy and Shaq finally made up and put aside their differences. Wait, no. That was actually porn star Ron Jeremy who was chatting with Shaq last week as they waited for their cars at a valet. (See the video below.)
