An Engagement in Hawaii … Real Original

The last time I thought about Hilary Duff I was wondering if she was legal. Now she’s getting engaged? My how kids grow up! The news of Duff’s engagement to hockey player Mike Comrie was revealed to me on Jimmy Traina’s twitter feed via People:

“Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie were engaged this weekend while vacationing in Hawaii,” rep Nanci Ryder said Friday. “After having been together for over two years, they are very excited to share this happy news. They are thankful for all of your warm wishes.”

Well, that makes two people who care about hockey in the U.S. considering Carrie Underwood’s fiance plays for the Senators. I don’t know how the whole hockey beau thing came along but hopefully it inspires more of America’s youth to take up the sport. And at joyous times likes these I must take it upon myself to remind us that if Comrie were truly worth something in hockey terms then he’d be in Vancouver this weekend playing for Team Canada instead of vacationing in Hawaii. Best of luck to the young lovers!

Megan Fox Super Bowl Commercial Was Funny but Crossed the Line

There isn’t too much about which we should complain when Motoblur sponsors a commercial featuring Megan Fox bathing in a tub. While it was clever and attention-grabbing, they didn’t get across the message of the product they advertised, and I thought there was a questionable moment. I can’t believe that CBS didn’t allow the ManCrunch gay dating site to advertise yet they allowed a scene in the Megan Fox Super Bowl commercial where a young boy was beating off in his bedroom! Check out the video:

Like I said, the concept was clever and the premise was cute, but how did that questionable display get through the CBS gatekeepers? You’d have to be pretty naive not to pick up on the implication of the mom knocking on the bedroom door. The commercial ranked 19th out of 63 in the USA Today Ad Meter, so that’s not bad. Anything with Megan Fox half naked is a success.

Reggie and Cheryl Miller Show Off Their Dance Moves

Thursday night on TNT was a pretty special night for several reasons. First up, the Magic came back from down 16 to beat the Celtics with Dwight Howard serving as an asset in the final quarter. After that game, the Suns came back to beat the Mavericks in Phoenix. Despite being down most of the game, the bench stepped up in the fourth to catapult the Suns into the lead, scoring 19 of their 28 points that quarter while disgruntled star Amare Stoudemire rode the pine. The result was that the Suns snapped their infamous TNT losing streak which had reached 18 games. The post game show was interesting as always but it was the dance moves of the Miller siblings that stole the show. Here’s the video:

The second portion of the video was a shortened clip from Miller dancing in the NBA TV studio earlier in the week. I definitely recognized the robot in there but can’t quite identify what the other moves were. Ditto for Reggie although his shoulder shake was pretty funny. What’s the lesson to be learned: always assume the cameras are rolling because anything you do could wind up on YouTube and then on some dumbasses’ blog.

FOX TV Loves Showing Brittany and Deanna Favre in the Stands

FOX TV, as they’re known to do, showed tons of shots of Brett Favre’s family in the stands of the Superdome. Since we’ve seen Favre’s wife many times before, there was no doubt that Deanna Favre was front-and-center. The question is who was the female sitting next to her? The resemblance between Deanna and the other woman was uncanny, sparking speculation that it had to be Brett Favre’s daughter, Brittany Favre. Here’s a picture of what must be either Brittany Favre or some other relative of Deanna’s (possibly her sister?) at the game:

Judging by a past picture of Brittany Favre (to the right), she must have changed quite a bit in the past five years if that’s her. I’ve read that she’s a student at College of Charleston but I can’t confirm anything except that Brittany Favre is the oldest child between Brett and Deanna. And she highly resembles her mother if that’s her. In case you’re wondering why Deanna’s covering her face in that shot, it’s because that was shown immediately after Favre took a big hit, getting his leg sandwiched between two defenders on the interception by Jonathan Vilma. I’m not sure why she cringed — doesn’t she know her husband’s Gumby incarnate?

Picture: Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko Sitting in a Tree

Two names I never thought I’d mention together in the same sentence: Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko. We’ve long been fans of Hayden since the day she became legal around 26 months ago (not that we’re counting). She always seemed to be a girl who dated the Hollywood type, not athletes. But as TMZ points out thanks to a photo from Pacific Coast News, Panetierre and Klitschko were spotted together in Miami.

Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko

I don’t even know what to make of this photo. Are the two dating? Did they vacation together? Do they have the same agent? How in the world is the IBF, IBO, and WBF heavyweight champion who’s so little known by U.S. sports fans known by Hayden Panettiere? What is going on here?

Latosha Lee Apparently Is Not a Stripper

A few weeks ago, we shared the story of Latosha Lee who was one of the women Shaq had on the side. Lee has a child with Timberwolves player Damien Wilkins but she also has (does?) messed around with Shaq. Shaq actually was consulting Latosha on how to get more child support money from Wilkins and Latosha’s lawyers have been hard at work. In fact, they took the time to send us a cease and desist letter regarding our story alleging Latosha Lee was a stripper. The allegation is completely false and we regret the error. We were mistaken because we saw videos online of Latosha Lee doing stripteases. Despite these videos, we are told she is not a stripper so we apologize for the error and wanted to clear things up. We wish Latosha nothing but the best in her future endeavors.

Wrestler Sheamus Does to Mark Cuban What Many of us Have Wanted to Do

With the Monday Night Football game being low-scoring early on and relatively boring, some sports fans may have found their way to Monday Night Raw. The event took place at American Airlines Center in Dallas and Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was a guest host for the evening. Because Cubes loves to be in the middle of things, you knew he had to get a piece of the action. Since I’m not exactly in the WWE loop, I’ll have to defer to their website for the storyline:

WWE Champion John Cena and Sheamus met in the ring with moderator, special guest host Mark Cuban. As the Dallas Mavs owner asked questions, The Celtic Warrior answered with bombast, stating why and how he will defeat The Champ. For his part, Cena demurred, finally asking his opponent whether he believes what he’s saying.

The question riled Sheamus. He appeared ready to leave the ring, but instead he attacked Cuban and took a cheap shot at the WWE Champion. When Cena came to, Sheamus kicked him in the skull to put him down again. That’s when The Celtic Warrior went all psycho on Cuban, slamming the host through a table!

Yes, Cuban got thrown through a table and it was pretty cool. You know David Stern’s going to love this video. Not great quality, but still worth a look at the video of Mark Cuban slammed through a table by Sheamus:
