Mark Cuban Was in Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Ring Entourage

You’ve already seen my break down of the actual fight, but I just couldn’t resist that screen grab of Wayne Newton. Unbeknownst to me, Mark Cuban, Helio Castroneves, and Wayne Newton, were all in attendance Saturday night to support their Dancing With Stars buddy, Floyd Mayweather Jr. Not only were they there to cheer the man on, but they also formed part of Mayweather’s entourage as he entered the ring. Can you picture a more excited man than the delighted Mark Cuban, who entered bearing a few of Floyd’s championship belts?

To think, Cubes actually abandoned his Mavs for a night to be at this fight. Judging by the smug look on his face, he couldn’t have been more proud. I do have to say, Josh Howard would not be pleased.

Tony Romo and Sophia Bush Now?

Tony Romo Sophia Bush

Last we checked up on old pal Tony Romo, he was sitting pretty with country singer Carrie Underwood. Matter of fact, there was even a hint that the two had even gotten married. Looks like we might be able to squash that rumor. With the Cowboys on their bye week, Romo was spotted showing off a new lady friend. From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

During the bye week Tuesday afternoon, Tony Romo and a handful of his teammates took part in a small promotional event for a new vidego game.

Romo didn’t win his matchup, but in the end, he got the girl.

At Terence Newman’s house in Dallas, Romo played the new Xbox 360 game “Guitar Hero III” with actress Carmen Electra, who was playing the game online in Los Angeles. Romo was joined by what appears to be a new … uh … friend, actress Sophia Bush. She has starred in the TV show One Tree Hill and the 2007 movie The Hitcher.

Well, I wasn’t present to assess the situation, but based on the way the writer frames the situation, it sounds like the two are an item. And forget Carmen Electra — as long as Sophia Bush is in question, I’m throwing her the deep ball. Way to go Tony, nicely done.

Hayden Panettiere, No Longer Jail Bait

I’m not even quite sure how the whole thing went down, but starting back sometime in July, I realized Hayden Panettiere wasn’t quite 18. Of course, it didn’t take long for me to go to her IMDB page and find out her birthday, and with that, the countdown began. Well, the day is finally upon us, and on the 21st of August, in the year 2007, I will ask you all to join me in saying a nice, big, creepy old man, Happy Birthday! to Hayden. Doesn’t she deserve it?

Plenty more Hayden love after the jump.

Whatever You Do, Just Don’t Let Paris or Britney Near the Kids

Sounds pretty reasonable, right? You would think pretty much anyone who’s semi-competent would keep our youth away from those harmful beings. I mean, you wouldn’t just let your baby juggle knives and jump into swimming pools without floaties, right? I guess that’s why Brynn Cameron has reportedly put an embargo on whom Matt Leinart’s kid can be around. As SPORTSbyBROOKS directs us:

A TMZ “staffer” reports today that Cameron said at the courthouse where the arrangement was settled, “Britney and Paris aren’t allowed to be around the baby!”

The best part is TMZ following that up with this commentary – no doubt straight from a Leinart spokeshole: “Several people familiar with the former couple say Brynn has been jealous and upset because Matt refused to marry her. For her part, Brynn has questioned Matt’s commitment to his son. Matt is the one who petitioned for more custody.”

Gentlemen, the lesson to be taken away here, don’t be a fool, wrap your tool. Do that, and you’ll be free to roam with whomever you want, and you won’t be saddled by baby mama drama. Come to think of it though, this sounds like it would’ve made for a great marriage. Too bad things didn’t work out.

Baron Davis + Teri Hatcher = Lovely

One’s a desperate housewife, one’s a desperate basketball player. They’re a perfect match wouldn’t you say? Hey, if the rumors are true, then I’m all for it. So how in the eff did it happen?

Tony [Parker]… introduced the brunette star to a fellow NBA guard, the Golden State Warriors’ Baron Davis, 28, at the newlyweds’ reception on July 7. And after that, Stephen Kay back home seemed to be miles from the actress’ mind!

“Baron and Teri really hit it off,” said a friend of the TV beauty. “They talked and danced all night and had a great time. They couldn’t seem to get enough of each other!”…

On July 24 [Teri and Baron] were spotted together again at the Hollywood eatery Pace, where they sat on the same side of a four-person table, “looking like a couple of love-struck teenagers!”

Honestly, I’m not a fan of either of them, so it works perfectly in my mind. Here’s one thing though, didn’t know Baron Davis was friends with T. Parker. And here’s another, I was really just looking for an excuse to share with you the information that I saw Nicole Sheridan in a soft core movie the other night. I got really excited until I realized Nicollette Sheridan was the Desperate Housewife. That just bummed me out.

Maybe That’s Why Derek Jeter and Jessica Alba Broke Up

As I posted on FanHouse, I was listening to The Adam Carolla Show this morning (LOVE Carolla by the way), and heard a report that I just had to blog. Not sure how kosher it is, because it is a report coming from a gossip site called L.A. Rag Mag. Anyways, the Rag Mag is saying that Derek Jeter gave Jessica Alba herpes.

As I briefly touched on in my post at FanHouse, I’ve always been of the opinion that STDs are not something to be ashamed of. Look, I’m not a fool who doesn’t wrap his tool, but let’s think about this seriously for a moment here. Isn’t there a prerequisite to getting an STD? Doesn’t sex have to be involved? That’s what I thought. Some people should only be so lucky as to have one. I’m not quite so sure what the stigma is against STDs. And anything that involves relationships with Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, and Mariah Carey can’t be too bad, can it?

Besides, herpes doesn’t seem to be bothering Justine Henin does it?

Lindsay Lohan Drunk Driving Night Out at the Stadium

At first I was thinking the first thousand fans to trade in a baggy of coke get free entrance, but that wouldn’t make so much sense, now would it? Here’s how Lindsay Lohan Drunk Driving Awareness Night is going down at Grayson Stadium, home of the Savannah Sand Gnats:

It will be a Thirsty Thursday with half-priced beer and Coke and $1 Papa John’s Pizza slices presented by Connect Savannah, Rock 106.1 and Papa John’s Pizza. However, the Sand Gnats encourage all fans in attendance to learn from the redheaded actress’ mistakes and plan for safe transportation home from the game.

Hook Towing will have a wrecked car from a drunk driving accident on display on the plaza in front of the main gate. Savannah Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic (HEAT) will also be at the game with its blood alcohol testing van.

At least minor league baseball does serve a useful role in this country after all. And where would be without Lindsay Lohan herself. Hopefully she doesn’t come out of rehab fixed; we would lose inspiration for promotions.
