1. AK-47 / Andrei Kirilenko
Dolph Lundgren err.. I mean Andrei wants to walk away from over sixty million dollars to get the hell out of Utah. His official reason is “he doesn’t like Jerry Sloan’s structured style of offense”, but I really think it’s the Mormons.
“When [new owner] Stu Sternberg came in, he said there was a need for dramatic change. One way for dramatic change is to change the name,” team president Matt Silverman told the paper.
Silverman said that one option is to remove the “Devil” from Devil Rays after meetings with focus groups revealed a negative association with the with word “devil,” the Tribune reported.
“When they liked something we did, they would refer to us as the Rays. If they were discussing a complaint or gripe, we were the Devil Rays,” Silverman told the paper.
Boxing couldn’t do anything right this week. Oscar De La Hoya got his “To Wong Foo” on, Fernando Vargas postponed/canceled his fight with Ricardo Mayorga (Vargas was reportedly 100lbs overweight), and Sam Peter’s fight with Maskaev also went out of the window.
More details from Isiah Thomas’ sexual harassment trial emerged. Testimony in the trial revealed Thomas allegedly thinks it’s okay for black men to call black women “bitch”, but not okay for whites:

“I’m sorry to say, I do make a distinction,” Thomas said in a videotaped admission viewed by a Manhattan federal jury yesterday.
Reggie Bush’s new girlfriend is planning to bare it all in an upcoming issue of Playboy Magazine, this would have been great if we hadn’t already seen Ray-J give her the business 4 months ago. Us Magazine says she’s “gonna show one boob, plus her bare butt”. What is this, middle school??? A good internet search can bring up goodies such as this, and even more if you know where to look.

6. Ric Flair
Would you trust financial advice from someone dressed like this? ……. me neither. Mortgage needs? Auto Loans? Just let Ric use his patented Figure Four Process and you’re good to go. If this business takes off, how will I get to see a sixty year old get powerbombed through 2 wooded tables?
7. Marcia Clark’s Grill
Since O.J. is back in trouble, this old hag is resurfacing on news shows around the country giving her bitter two cents. How did she manage to get uglier than she was in the early 90s sporting the white people jheri curl? What happened to her face?
