Mix a former Baywatch babe, a tough hockey player and a swank Las Vegas hotel and what do you get? A very mellow wedding. Actress Angelica Bridges (whom you may have seen as Troy Aikman's girlfriend in the Brut Cologne campaign or in her November 2001 Playboy pictorial) and Canadiens defenseman Sheldon Souray (who broke in as a Devil in '98) were married on Saturday at a poolside ceremony at the Bellagio Hotel. Some 70 guests attended the reception on the Grand Patio. Men wore sandals and shorts, women wore summer dresses, and everyone feasted on chicken and ribs. After the party Souray and Bridges each took a rose from one of the bouquets on the dining tables and, dressed in tux and wedding gown, respectively, headed for the Bellagio's Light nightclub.
?After slinging webs as Spiderman this summer, actor Tobey Maguire is trading in his blue and red tights for red and white racing silks. Last week the 5'8", 27-year-old star signed a $12 million deal to play jockey Red Pollard in a movie based on the best-selling book Seabiscuit: An American Legend. Maguire will study the art of jockeying with Hall of Famer Chris McCarron, 47. " Pollard was 5'7"," McCarron says. "He was very tall, so Tobey fits right in." McCarron, who is 5'2", is a technical consultant on the film, which begins shooting this fall, and he will also play Charley Kurtsinger, the jockey for War Admiral, whom Seabiscuit defeated in their 1938 match race. Casting has not begun for the role of the undersized, crooked-legged Seabiscuit.
?Tennis star Andy Roddick and his favorite rock group, The Dave Matthews Band, staged a mutual admiration party last week at Cincinnati's Tennis Masters Series tournament. Roddick sat with the band to watch Pete Sampras play on Wednesday, then Matthews & Co. watched Roddick beat Nicolas Kiefer that same day. The next night, after waxing Wayne Ferreira 6-3, 6-2, Roddick sped from the court to catch the band live at the Riverbend Music Center. "I've seen them several times, but this was the best," says Roddick, 19. "They played Satellite, which is one of my favorites and never made it into the other shows." After the concert Roddick hung with the band on its bus and came away with an autographed CD, a stick from drummer Carter Beauford and a personalized set list, which Matthews, 35, signed, "Good luck young brother!"
