Reggie Answers Back to Jealous Fly-By

Yesterday we mentioned Reggie Miller getting called out via plane banner by Alex Von Furstenberg for hitting on AVF’s fiancee, Ali Kay. Today, Reggie is getting his side of the story out. TMZ, the epic smut-dealers of society have obtained from Reggie(?) two flirtatious photos that Kay sent the former basketball star, one of her in bed and another of her in a bikini. Sassy!


According to Miller, the two began a flirtatious relationship in March, with theoretically nothing consumated. Reggie also insists that he ended the flirty texting by deleting her from his phone in April, because that sounds like something a normal dude would do, delete a ridiculously hot girl from your phone just cuz… Reggie’s version also has ALI reinstigating contact and wondering why he dropped off, which led to AVF getting jealous and angry, becoming threatening and then hiring people to follow Miller.

Being rich is tough.

That said, this Ali Kay girl is super hot but she better be worth all this fervor AVF, otherwise you just made a giant asshole out of yourself.



Those Trojans are Fabulous Fellows

Last year we saw Pete Carroll and his USC Trojans team hanging out with their shirts off and lots of embracing. I thought that was a bit, hmm, homoerotic? Well, this clip of the Trojans getting together and singing “Lean on Me” while Carroll accompanies on the piano tops that by about a thousand.

And just because the team was doing this as hazing for a freshman doesn’t make it better or OK.

Kenny Williams, Pay the Man

duvw7zzdFresh off bailing the Toronto Blue Jays out by taking the horrible contract of Alex Rios off their hands, the city of Seattle noticed White Sox GM Kenny Williams walking around and figured since he was so generous why not help out the city budget some too. In Seattle to see his team take on the Mariners, Williams was nabbed by the police for the horrible crime of jaywalking outside the stadium, something they also nailed Manny Ramirez for last season.

Exiting a cab and heading towards the stadium, Kenny crossed the street without using the crosswalk. Williams informed the officer who stopped him that in Chicago people cross the streets everywhere, not just at the crosswalks. The officer informed him that’s not how things are done in Seattle, handing him a $56 ticket and sending him on his way.

So, Now You Know About A-Rod’s Junk

Twins Yankees BaseballFrom the NY Post’s incredibly old and irrelevant gossip mongerer Cindy Adams comes this tidbit:

SO, these friends were at the bar in The Foundry in the Meatpacking District. Professional womanizer Alex Rodriguez, who now and then squeezes in a few hours with the Yankees, arrives with his newest temp — Kate Hudson. A quickie bar pit stop, then to their table, a butter pat away from my friends who also by now were seated. One of these friends had to use the men’s room. And while he’s in the gents’, in comes A-Rod. Now, having seen Alex up close, I can tell you exactly about his face. Never having shared a urinal with him, I cannot tell you about his other varying parts. I am now told, however — and reliably so — that there are reasons he scores big in RBIs.

Ugh. I can’t wait for herpes to rot his junk away.

Ooh! More Car Crashes!

I could never sit through a full NASCAR race, I’ve tried, I just value my brain too much to put it through such an awful experience. However, I can ALWAYS enjoy a short video clip of a big crash. After all, it’s just human nature to want to watch a near-disaster happen. Here’s Sam Hornish Jr. — whoever that is — getting run into the same tire wall that we saw yesterday and then get slammed into by Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton as Hornish comes across the track. Neat!

Everyone walked away from the crash without injury. Sigh.


Bernard Pollard Has One Skill

BradyStill in the first quarter of the first game, the New England Patriots’ season came tumbling down after Kansas City’s Bernard Pollard came in on a blitz and exploded Brady’s left knee by running into it. Matt Cassel stepped in and ably guided the Patriots, but obviously was  not on the level of Brady.

Well, Bernard is BACK in action in the Chiefs training camp activities and courtesy of Sports Illustrated’s Peter King comes this story. Normally, during training camp the quarterbacks wear red non-contact jerseys. Well, just as it happened last season, Pollard came in on a blitz and the running back who was supposed to block him gave an ole-style hit instead. Going low to take on the block, Pollard instead — just as it happened with Brady — stumbled and came crashing towards Cassel’s knee.

“MOVE!” Pollard yelled, but it was too late. He rolled into Cassel, the Chiefs’ new $63 million QB and his left leg. Fortunately for the Chiefs, Pollard was able to slow himself and merely tapped his QB’s knee. Cassel was fine, he flexed the leg a few times and then got back to business, after some of his offensive mates gave Pollard some shoves.

“Pretty weird,” a smiling Cassel told King, “Yeah, I realized it.”

When King approached Pollard about the play, the safety said, “I got to the sidelines after that play and I realized what happened, and I thought, — OH MY GOD! It’s like a replay.”

Sigh. I dislike Bernard.
