THE BOTTOM 10
The Week's Worst In Sports
 
BUD SELIG
Yeah, all the way to $18.5 million, highest among pro commissioners ...

As his sport attempts to rebound from the Alex Rodriguez drug scandal and with the Bonds and Clemens cases looming, the baseball commissioner says that, in retrospect, "I'm not sure I would done anything different," and that, "if you look at our whole body of work, I think we've come farther than anyone dreamed possible."
 
THE CONSUMER MARKET
White golf glove not included

Among the items being auctioned off in a Michael Jackson clearance sale is an electric golf cart that features a small illustration of Jacko as Peter Pan on the hood.
 
ANTHONY KIM'S CADDY
However, he did remember to declare that the patch of scrubs lining the 16th fairway can be particularly devious

After arriving with the golfer in Perth for the Johnnie Walker Classic, Eric Larson was refused entry and sent back to Florida for not declaring a past criminal conviction. Larson's 11-year sentence for his part in a small cocaine distribution ring ended in 2006 and he immediately began caddying again.
 
NOTRE DAME OFFENSE
Meet the new boss ... same as the old boss

Head coach Charlie Weis, who said that he would bring a "significant schematic advantage" to the Irish system when he came from the NFL, has announced that he will once again handle offensive-coordinator duties, even though the Irish's rushing attack also stunk in the years when he was calling the plays.
 
DONALD STERLING
If this goes to trial, we just can't wait for discovery

The Los Angeles Clippers' owner, one of the most secretive and (by many, many accounts) strangest people on the planet, has been sued by former general manager/NBA legend Elgin Baylor for age and race discrimination.
 
WRIGLEY FIELD
Or you could just be up in arms that it'll suck

Some fans are up in arms that a July 21 concert at the ivy shrine will feature Elton John, a self-proclaimed Braves fan and Billy Joel, a Long Islander who roots for both the Mets and Yankees.
 
BOB GAINEY
And we're worrying about too much fighting?

The Montreal Canadiens general manager humiliated his best player, Alex Kovalev, by ordering the right winger to stay home during a road trip to "reflect" on his recent poor play.
 
WASHINGTON NATIONALS
At least they passed on Danny Almonte

Esmailyn Gonzalez, the 19-year-old shortstop who in July of 2006 received the largest bonus ($1.4 million) the franchise has ever given an international player, turns out to be a 23-year-old named Carlos Alvarez Daniel Lugo.
 
THE AMERICAN CINEMA
If Brett Favre could do that we'd never get rid of him

Baby-faced prankster/thespian Ashton Kutcher, who played a real-life role as an assistant freshman football coach at a Los Angeles high school, has signed on to do a movie whose story line includes an NFL quarterback and a 12-year-old middle school nerd magically trading bodies. Apparently, much hilarity as well as learning will ensue.
 
MARSHAWN LYNCH
At least he didn't shoot himself in a nightclub

The Pro Bowl running back, who admitted to driving off after striking a pedestrian in downtown Buffalo last May, has been charged in Los Angeles County Court with possessing a concealed, loaded and unregistered firearm.
 
 
 
This Week's Most Captivating Blog Entry
Joey Chestnut, competitive eater:

For the past few weeks I have been getting ready for a macaroni and cheese eating contest that is going to take place during an intermission of a San Jose Stealth Lacrosse game. This Saturday's Stealth game against Colorado will be Major League Eating Night, and the first 3,000 people that get into the stadium will get a Joey Chestnut bobble head. That's right, there is a Joey Freakin Chestnut bobble head. This will be my first time competing in San Jose, and a lot of friends and family will be seeing me in action for the first time. Mac N Cheese is one of my favorite foods, so I am looking forward to throwing down some serious poundage.
