John Lackey Reportedly Divorcing Wife Battling Cancer, Upset Over Pre-Game Text

John Lackey is having the worst season of any starting pitcher in baseball, and by far the worst season of his career. In May, the former Angels ace said “everything in my life sucks right now.” Not only was he struggling on the mound, but more importantly, his wife was battling breast cancer.

Several months later, Lackey’s pitching has hardly improved, and his personal problems appear to have worsened. TMZ reports that Lackey filed for divorce from his wife on August 30th.

The two were married in November, 2008, and his wife, Krista, reportedly underwent a double masectomy and has had chemotherapy treatments this year.

Lackey gave up four runs to the Yankees Sunday night over six innings, taking a no decision. It was his second-best start of the month and only the second time the Red Sox have won one of his starts in September.

Given the nature of what’s been reported, Lackey is going to end up looking like an awful human being for leaving his wife while she’s undergoing cancer treatment. We don’t know all the details of their relationship so it would be unfair to make that claim.

The report also seems to explain an issue about which Lackey complained Sunday night. The Red Sox pitcher was upset that he received a text message 30 minutes prior to his start regarding a personal issue.

Charles Barkley Has a Crush on Sarah Palin, So Glen Rice is Now his Hero

Charles Barkley freely admits that he has a crush on Sarah Palin. You may recall this January video of Barkley asking for Tracy Morgan’s opinion of Palin, to which the comedian replied “she’s great masturbation material.” That came up because Barkley was trying to convince fellow TNT analyst Kenny Smith that Palin was hot.

Well Barkley joined the Waddle and Silvy show on Thursday and one of the topics that came up was Glen Rice and Sarah Palin. Barkley could not contain his excitement.

“You know, I have a thing for Sarah Palin,” Barkley stated shamelessly. “I think she’s hot. I wouldn’t vote for her, but she is hot. I’ve always said I’ve got a crush on Sarah Palin.

“When I read that [story] … Glen Rice is my new hero. He’s my new hero. If that story is true, more power to Glen Rice.”

Mike Tyson Doesn’t Think Glen Rice Banged Sarah Palin Hard Enough

Just when you thought all aspects of the Sarah Palin-Glen Rice love story had been explored, we forget that Mike Tyson had yet to weigh in. Iron Mike did just that as a guest on Gridlock KWWN Espn Radio 1100/98.9FM with Paul Howard, Mitch Moss, and Seat Williams Thursday.

Audio from the interview is posted below, as well as Tyson’s best comments. We typically keep things fairly PG-13 here at LBS, but this interview definitely would earn us an R-rating at the least. Mike Tyson appeared to be living out his own sexual fantasies envisioning Glen Rice and Sarah Palin together. This dude was getting really excited.

Glen Rice and Sarah Palin Reportedly Had One-Night Stand

This is a story so wacky, so unbelievable, so incredible, and so improbable, that it can only be true. Author Joe McGinniss has a book about Sarah Palin coming out called The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin. The National Enqurirer passes on one of the juicier details from the book. Ready for this one? They say Sarah Palin once had a one-night stand with former NBA and Michigan hoops star Glen Rice in 1987. From the National Enquirer:

Sarah hooked up with the NBA great, then a 6-foot-8 junior at the University of Michigan when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska in 1987, the book says. At the time, Sarah, just out of college, was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU.

A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a “fetish” for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had “hauled (Rice’s) ass down.”

The magazine adds that Palin got married to her husband nine months later, and that he was very much in the picture at the time of the one-nighter. They also say Rice confirms the one-night stand in the book.

Elin Nordegren’s New Boyfriend Jamie Dingman a Womanizer Like Tiger?

We are all familiar with the rumors that Elin Nordegren has hopped from one billionaire to another and is currently dating Jamie Dingman.  While one would be inclined to think Dingman is a rebound for Nordegren after a horrendous relationship, that did not seem to be the case a month or so back.  In July, the NY Post sited sources who claimed Dingman has “never been so happy” and that he and Elin have “strong feelings for each other.”  Could the honeymoon already be over?

According to OK! Magazine via the Daily Mail, sources are now saying Jamie is “a total playboy, exactly the type of guy a lot of people believe she should be staying away from.”  A separate source said that they feel sorry for Elin and claimed Jamie has “houses and girls all over the world.”

This type of behavior would not be unheard of from a young billionaire, but it’s tough to feel sorry for Nordegren.  She had to have known what she was getting herself into.  Maybe she cannot fathom being with someone who has to think twice before buying a new $10 million mansion.  The bottom line is it was fine to feel sorry for her after the Tiger situation, but she’s an adult.  If Elin gets herself into a similar situation with another spoiled rich guy she has no one to blame but herself.

H/T to Fan Phooey for the story.

Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly Break Up

Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly have broken up after three years together, People reports. They say that Minka’s rep confirmed the news and that the two are parting amicably. Just Jared, who first reported the news, adds that the two remain friends.

The news comes as somewhat of a surprise given the speculation last year the two might wed. Additionally, Kelly was in the Yankee Stadium luxury box with Jeter’s family to celebrate Derek’s 3,000 hits. That was only six weeks ago. Chances are they were already on shaky ground at that time and didn’t officially split until recently.

Now that we know Jeter is back on the market, the big question becomes whom will he chase after next? The Yankees captain has already dated or been linked to Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Mariah Carey, Jordana Brewster, Vanessa Minnillo, Lara Dutta, Joy Enriquez, Adriana Lima, and Vida Guerra. You know his next girl will likely be another dime.

Here’s a look at all the women to whom Jeter has been linked:

Thanks to Jimmy Traina for the story, who needs to get to work on making Minka his new girlfriend.

Caroline Wozniacki Confirms She and Rory McIlroy Are Dating

Last month we showed you pictures of women’s No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki and golfer Rory McIlroy kissing after The Open Championship. That same day McIlroy’s management team informed the press that the young golfer had broken up with longtime girlfriend Holly Sweeney. Although the two have continued to flirt over twitter the past few weeks, nothing was ever made official.

Until now.

Wozniacki was a guest on SportsCenter and was asked by Michelle Bonner if the two of them are “an item.” Wozniacki grinned sheepishly before providing her best response. “Well I’ll definitely improve my golf swing for the next couple of months, that’s for sure,” Wozniacki cautiously said.

Asked about the two helping each other to improve in the other’s sport, Wozniacki said it was mutually beneficial. “Yeah, his backhand needs some improvement. His forehand is doing pretty well,” she said of Rory’s tennis game. “I could use some help with my golf game, so why not help each other out a little bit?”

Wozniacki had a wide grin as she answered all the questions, so you could tell she enjoyed thinking of McIlroy. They may not be the most powerful couple in sports, but there certainly are very few duos that are as athletically talented as they are. I’ll give them a year.
