Following in the footsteps of Shaquille O'Neal, LeBron James has reportedly agreed to be a guest host on <i>WWE Raw</i> in the next few weeks. Why do I get the feeling that he's going to be squaring off against Jerry "The King" Lawler in a steel cage match to decide who is the real king?

<i>Dancing With the Stars</i>
While sports fans focused on the inclusion of Michael Irvin and Chuck Liddell on the just-released roster for this season's competition, anyone who watched Joanna Krupa rip into Terrell Owens during <i>Superstars</i> knows that she'll be the most exciting contestant. Let's just hope her partner slips up and tries to give her a high-five afterward.

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett
The only reality show couple still relevant in the sports world have decided on the name of their baby, who is due on Christmas Day. Thankfully, they will not name their son after Hugh Hefner, as was previously rumored, instead opting for Hank Baskett IV.

Michael Strahan and Kim Kardashian
About a month after splitting with Reggie Bush, Kardashian will be confronting another NFL player about dating rumors, although this time it will be scripted. Kardashian will tape a guest appearance as herself on the new Fox sitcom <i>Brothers</i>, in which she presses fictional former football star Michael Trainor, played by Strahan, about rumors that the two are hooking up. It shouldn't be too hard to pull off: It can't be any more scripted than her reality show.

Colt Brennan and Jessica Simpson
The person most surprised with rumors that Simpson had moved on from Tony Romo to the Redskins' backup quarterback was Brennan himself. "I don't even know her," was his response when I asked him about it, although his teammate and "life coach" Chris Cooley's answer was probably better. "I just told him, 'That doesn't sound like a rumor that I'd want to deny.' "

Woods was 14-for-14 when leading a major after three rounds ... before Sunday. Tiger let a two-stroke advantage slip away to unknown Y.E. Yang at the PGA Championship. Interestingly, the 37-year-old Yang didn't start playing golf until he was 19, or about 18 years later than Tiger was first given a club.

Never before has an athlete's last name so aptly described his or her abilities quite like that of Bolt, who broke his own record in the 100 meters with a 9.58 at the world championships in Berlin. There once was a time when anything under 10 seconds was considered flying; if that's the case, Bolt is running at warp speed right now.

Rick Pitino, Michael Vick and Brett Favre
I don't know if Pitino, Vick and Favre have ever been in the same room at the same time, but I do know that Pitino owes Vick and Vick owes Favre big time. Just when it looked as if Pitino might get fired for his sordid sex scandal, Vick's signing with the Eagles bumped Pitino from the national headlines. And just when it looked like Vick would be scrutinized constantly for his controversial return to the NFL, Favre took the spotlight off him by signing with the Vikings. And what about Favre? Well, as we all know by now, the spotlight is always on Favre and that's just the way he likes it.
