1. Actress Bridget Moynahan is pregnant with Tom Brady's baby. It looks like the hunky QB is going to do the right thing. After all, he's never been one to point fingers after a protection breakdown.
2. The West beat the East 153-132 in Sunday's glitzy NBA All-Star Game in Las Vegas. Though there was an awkward moment during the pregame festivities when Tim Hardaway stormed out just as Siegfried and Roy were introduced.
3. In the time it took you to read this, Nate Robinson missed two more dunk attempts.
4. What are the odds?: In Friday's 10 Spot, we marked the NBA's interest in putting a franchise in Las Vegas by setting a line on various scenarios, including 1-10 odds on a Las Vegas police report involving an NBA player and a strip club. Perhaps we should have expanded the wager to all professional athletes, because it seems that would have already paid off. There are reports that police are looking to speak with Titans cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones about a triple shooting at the Minxx Gentlemen's Club in Las Vegas on early Monday morning. (Frankly, using the word "Minxx" ought to be a crime.) At this point, it seems that Jones is being sought as a potential witness, not a suspect. Still, that would get him in the police report, which is all we're shooting for.
5. The Lakers are rumored to be seeking Nets point guard Jason Kidd in a trade that would involve a third team. In fact, the divorce lawyer for Kidd's wife is already threatening to expose the alleged three-way.
6. Beauty before age: Charles Barkley may have turned 44 on Tuesday, but he still has enough gas in the tank to out-run 67-year-old referee Dick "Knick" Bavetta. Barkley edged Bavetta in their hotly anticipated foot race during Saturday's pre-All Star event in Las Vegas. The man who may or may not run for governor of Alabama nearly squandered a commanding lead in the 329-foot race (3 1/2 trips up the court) when he began running backwards, but not even a finish-line lunge by Bavetta (which earned him a bloody knee) could catch Barkley.
7. Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez announced on Monday that he's no longer close friends with teammate Derek Jeter. In other breaking news, Britney Spears has some issues.
8. That's no high C!: Loyal 10 Spot readers will note that this week's story of two Liverpool teammates fighting -- with one hitting the other in the legs with a golf club over a dispute about karaoke -- is nothing new. For whatever reason, teammates in England's Premiership have a long history of coming to blows. The most famous example is then Newcastle players Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer scuffling during a game in 2005, which ranked No. 1 on our list of teammate fights last fall. Indeed, there is a storied tradition of Premiership players settling things with their fists, which might seem odd in a sport where you can't use your hands.
9. Kevin Harvick edged Mark Martin on Sunday in one of the closest finishes in Daytona 500 history. Then again, they were the only two drivers who hadn't been disqualified.
10. Dude, where's my race?: Last week, Jim Stewart of Houma, La., was just a NASCAR fan. On May 5, though, he will be a NASCAR race. Stewart won the contest held by Crown Royal for the naming rights of a Nextel Cup race, which we first noted in the 10 Spot last May. The May 5 Richmond race in NASCAR's top series will now be called the Crown Royal Presents The Jim Stewart 400. Stewart is a construction worker and avid fisherman who listed his winning "Crown-worthy" moment as christening his fishing boat with a toast to his dad to remember the times he spent on the water with him as a child.
