NBA SEX APPEALS?
The least persuasive (if funniest) pitch to an NBA free agent came from America's sweetheart Betty White (left), 88. Plugging her sitcom Hot in Cleveland, the former Rose on Golden Girls said in a video to King James that she would "make it worth [his] while" to stay home. And we thought Blanche was the slut!
ONCE (AND FUTURE?) KINGS
Roger Federer (left), out in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon? Tiger Woods, scuffling at the AT&T? Best stomp them while they're down; there's no quit in either former No. 1. As Woods put it last Saturday, "The more I keep playing, the better I get."
THE DISABLED LIST
Big hurts: Phillies (Chase Utley, Placido Polanco) and Red Sox (Dustin Pedroia, Victor Martinez, Jason Varitek) were dropping like flies. Meanwhile, two-time champ Justine Henin ruled herself out of the U.S. Open because of ligament damage to her right elbow.
MICK'S CUP PICKS
No satisfaction: Mick Jagger (left) sat with Bill Clinton when the U.S. lost to Ghana; watched his England team fall to Germany; and with his half-Brazilian son, Lucas, saw the Dutch oust the Seleção. You said it best, Sir Mick: You can't always get what you want.
