I received a press release yesterday about the 2010 BET Award nominations. Obviously, the stunning Beyonce finds herself in several categories, which is great for us because it gives me an excuse to link to some of her photos. But there were two nominations that stood out as truly bizarre. The first is in the category of Sportsman of the Year. The nominees are Carmelo Anthony, Usain Bolt, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Tiger Woods. Yes, Tiger Woods. As Sportsman of the Year. The other nomination that struck me as just a bit odd is in the category of Best New Artist. One of the people up for that award is someone who probably comes to all of our minds when we think "new artist" and "BET Awards." Justin Bieber.

Quote Of The Day
Dwight Howard :: Doug Benc/Getty Images
If you're an Orlando Magic fan who just watched your team lose two home games to start the Eastern Conference finals, you can't be thrilled with this quote from Dwight Howard after Game 2: "There ain't nothing I can do about it, Game 2 is over, we can't replay Game 2. I did what I do every night ...Go home and play video games."
