The best part of watching the Yankees play the Angels in Anaheim was constantly seeing Hudson, who was seated in a box behind home plate. The only drawback, of course, was that Pat Sajak was sitting in the same section and distracting in his own right. Where's Vanna White when you need her?

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian
Before Odom receives a championship ring (to be presented on the NBA's opening night) to go along with his wedding ring, he and his wife, Khloe, got tattoos of each other's initials on their hands. Anyone else notice that when they put their hands together it spells "loko?" Just saying.

Jay-Z and Alicia Keys
The Yankees are finally embracing their whole "Evil Empire" mystique. Before Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys will perform <i>Empire State of Mind</i> on the field. It's one of the cooler ideas the MLB has had in years. Quite frankly, we were getting tired of <i>American Idol</i> castoffs opening up the Fall Classic.

File this in the ever-growing folder of athletes sticking their foot in their mouth on Twitter. After the Todd Haley-coached Chiefs lost to the Chargers on Sunday, Johnson tweeted, "My father got more creditentials than most of these pro coaches. My father played for the coach from 'rememeber the titans.' Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn." Wow, who knew Johnson's dad played football for Denzel Washington?

The NBA season starts this week and O'Neal admits he still doesn't know the Cavaliers' playbook. That's probably because he's had a hard time paying attention to a coach without the credentials of Phil Jackson or Pat Riley. What's the over/under on how many games before O'Neal starts blasting Mike Brown like he did Stan Van Gundy?

Frank McCourt and Jamie McCourt
The drama between the McCourts was far more interesting than anything that went down in the NLCS, during which their Dodgers were once again beaten by the Phillies in five games. The McCourts are going through a divorce so messy that Frank fired Jamie during the playoffs.

Brad Penny and Karina Smirnoff
Penny's accomplishments off the mound in dating Eliza Dushku and Alyssa Milano have always been more impressive than his accomplishments on it. Well, Penny is at it again, off the mound of course, as he's now seeing Smirnoff from <i>Dancing With the Stars</i>. Let's just hope that he doesn't end up on the show now.

It's no secret that everyone on the Lakers has gone a little Hollywood. Half the team has personal publicists; Lamar Odom is a paparazzi magnet after marrying into the Kardashian; and Ron Artest, well, that's another story. And now we can add Gasol to the mix. He will star in an upcoming episode of <i>CSI: Miami</i> opposite David Caruso. He'll play a "normal person." Yes, as normal as the 7-foot power forward for the Lakers can be.

Getting drafted first overall by the Clippers is like walking into the woods in a scary movie. You should just scream and run the other way. After a promising preseason, Griffin fell victim to the "Clippers Curse" and will miss the first six weeks of the season with a broken kneecap, following in the footsteps of other cursed Clippers draft picks, such as Danny Manning and Michael Olowokandi.

Has Kim already ventured into Jose Canseco and Danny Bonaduce territory? The Kardashians are auctioning off the chance to fight them in a charity boxing match that will, of course, be aired on their reality show. Pro boxers are prohibited, so that means Canseco is still fair game for this one.
