Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima and Grizzlies guard Marko Jaric eloped on Valentine's Day. The news prompted this e-mail from Anne, of Rochester, N.Y.: "I assume every single man who reads a sports blog (especially this one) has seen the news about Adriana Lima eloping on Valentines Day to Marko Jaric. While you all frantically search for the link, my favorite part of the People article is how they called Jaric a basketball star. Since when are benchwarmers stars? Am I the only one who finds that to be a ridiculous comment?" Jaric is averaging 1.9 points, 1 rebound and 1.1 assists per game, so, yes, calling him a star would be a teeny, tiny stretch. But he's making $6.6 million this year and he's married to Adriana Lima. He's a superstar in my book!
Nate Robinson made sure to fistbump Will Ferrell (and give him his dunk contest jersey) during the Knicks win over the Pacers last night, while Kobe Bryant recently chatted with Bill O'Reilly. However, nothing can top Devin Harris' game-winning shot, made even better by having Marv Albert behind the mic to call it.
Forget The Recession
If you're pumped up about Tiger Woods' return to the links Wednesday, maybe you'll want to bid on an empty Gatorade bottle that he supposedly drank from during the 2007 PGA championship. It'll only cost you $25,000.
Becks Artificial Boost?
A commercial airing in China is using David Beckham's image to promote a Viagra-like sex pill. The spot even includes the line "Want to know how I can keep being strong and running on the football field? USA Selikon capsules help me a lot. It's also the secret weapon with which I can satisfy Victoria." There's definitely a joke that can be made about this story and the Armani billboard above, but I won't go there.

Commercial Of The Day
Brooks, of Chattanooga, Tenn., says "I thought you would enjoy this ridiculous/amazing commercial. The confident mention of its "incredible demand" makes it even better."
'80s Video Of The Day
Sean, of China, Maine, says "Jimmy, I'm not sure what your criteria is for '80s videos, but here's my submission, which haunts me to this day: The Safety Dance, by Men Without Hats. A man running around with a short person, a medieval theme, people in chicken masks, while singing about some sort of dance that I really have no explanation for (I've heard theories from nuclear war awareness to dancing at clubs where there are no skinheads). It totally sums up the '80s."
