Rush Limbaugh
You didn't think he was done with insightful sports commentary, did you...

During his daily radio show last Monday, the patriarch of the right-wingers bloviated about attending the Steelers playoff victory at Heinz Field and predicted that Pittsburgh will beat "the Crips and the Bloods," his description of the Baltimore Ravens, in the AFC Championship Game.

Hulk Hogan
Worse, The Hulkster had to watch a poseur like Mickey Rourke pick up a Golden Globe for The Wrestler...

Stephanie McMahon, daughter of Vince and herself a WWE competitor, positively pile-drove and eye-gouged the grappling bona fides of the one-time wrestling darling during her recent Congressional testimony about steroids. "Hulk Hogan was a terrible wrestler, and he still is. ... I am sure he would disagree with that ... But, you know, he was. He was a terrible wrestler."

The Future of Baseball
I have searched my memory, sir, and I just can't recall if we ever discussed the DH...

Alberto Gonzales, erstwhile disgraced attorney general, said in an interview that he wants "to do something completely different," and threw out baseball commissioner as a possibility.
The Future of Baseball, Part II
Nevertheless, it's estimated that 99.9 percent can get all the way through a Girls Gone Wild video in one sitting...

Major League Baseball has acknowledged that 106 players were diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) last year and therefore allowed "therapeutic use exemptions" for drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall.

The Entire Cast of Dallas
As for the good news, Roger Staubach remains flawless...

Tony Romo's play has raised serious doubts about his quarterbacking future. Terrell Owens' future with the team is up in the air. Pacman Jones has admitted he "likes the strip clubs" but wants Jerry Jones to have him back. Linebacker/defensive end Anthony Spencer was just arrested for "drunken belligerence" outside an Indianapolis bar. And the serially troubled Michael Irvin made a strong alumni appearance on the police log this week when he claimed to have been accosted on the highway by a motorist and a passenger waving a semi-automatic. Irvin says that the men recognized him and he was able to get out of the jam by talking football. "I'm glad he was a Cowboys fan," said Irvin of the man with the gun. Most fortunately, the men had apparently not seen the Cowboys' season-ending 38-point loss to the Eagles.

The New England Patriots
I'll take pissed-off guys in hoodies for a hundred, Alex...

Over the past week, this non-playoff team lost its offensive coordinator (Josh McDaniels) to the Denver Broncos, its general manager (Scott Pioli) to the Kansas City Chiefs, and its quarterback (Tom Brady) to the arms of a model. Plus, the coach (Bill Belichick) was torched in a recent Jeopardy episode with this zinger: One second from defeat in the 2008 Super Bowl, this losing head coach threw a hissy fit and stalked off the field. (It was answered correctly.)

Jay Bilas
And there are more explosions in Pride and Prejudice than in a whole season of 24...

ESPN's college basketball analyst, a Duke grad, said during the Blue Devils-Georgia Tech game on Wednesday night, "I think college basketball has gotten more physical than the NBA."

Have you heard? Jose Canseco's new nickname is "Clean"...

Lenny Dykstra
If "Money May" would've only consulted with "Nails," all this could've been avoided...

Already beset with lawsuits over failed magazine-launch deals and back pay, the former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder, who had launched a second career as a stock-picker for, has been sued by a New York literary agent who claims that Dykstra owes him $194,000 over a failed book deal.

The Modern Cinema
It has to be better than Paul Blart: Mall Cop, right...

Dennis Rodman is starring, with a cast that includes several little people, in a basketball movie called The Minis. Against, all odds, it is not a porno, though it is due to be released in Italy, a country accustomed to Felliniesque nightmares.
