Tony Romo Placed on IR, Not Before Proposing to Candice Crawford

Even when he’s not playing Tony Romo manages to stay in the spotlight. The Cowboys quarterback, who has been out nearly two months with a broken collarbone, was finally placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Dallas was hoping Romo would be able to return before the season ended but his recovery was not going as well as hoped. The Cowboys will continue to roll with backup Jon Kitna who’s gone 4-4 in his eight starts.

Apparently the extra time off allowed Romo to get closer with girlfriend Candice Crawford and do some ring shopping. The 30-year-old quarterback proposed to Crawford on Saturday at her 24th birthday party, about a year after rumors suggested the two were already engaged. Clearly Romo feels he needed to lock a girl up before his career hit a downward slide.

Tony’s engagement completes the Jessica Simpson circle. Simpson’s engagement was announced shortly after ex-husband Nick Lachey got engaged, and now her ex-boyfriend Romo is doing the same. Clearly nobody wants to be left behind.

The question is how does Crawford compare to the other women to whom Romo’s been linked? We still think he should have gone in this direction.

Tony Parker Reportedly Was Suspicious of Eva Longoria and Lance Armstrong

Whatever distractions Tony Parker has battled since his divorce from Eva Longoria, he hasn’t seemed to be bothered on the court. The Spurs are 18-3 and have the best record in the league while Parker has averaged a career-high 7.1 assists per game. Parker’s also shooting 51.8% from the field and a career-high 79.5% on free throws. The focus he’s maintained is shocking in light of the public beating he’s taken.

Parker’s “loyalty” rating in a video game plummeted to zero, and all the entertainment/girly mags only present Eva’s side of the divorce. Because he’s not best friends with Mario Lopez and because he doesn’t feed stories to People, US Weekly, and E!, he’s depicted as a villanous creature while Eva is painted as the victim in the relationship. That apparently is not the case.

Sports by Brooks shared possible details of Longoria’s promiscuous ways when the news first came out, and it’s the side her people don’t want you to see. Additionally, the National Enquirer is getting behind things as well, revealing a more balanced perspective.

According to the Enquirer, “The latest bombshell in the Desperate Housewives star’s nasty divorce battle has Tony Parker wondering if Eva carried on an affair with bicycling champ Lance Armstrong! … It was Eva’s close ties with fellow Texan and Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong that sent Tony’s suspicions into overdrive.”

Lance Armstrong does not exactly have the cleanest dating record, and his character has been called into question before, so engaging in a relationship with Longoria would not be a surprise. I really don’t care what went on between Parker and Longoria’s sham of a marriage, nor about their cheating partners. But I do care about both sides of a story being told, and this helps people see the other side.

Mark Sanchez Supposedly Breaks Up with ‘Girlfriend’ Lindsay McCormick

With Monday night’s big matchup coming up between the Jets and Patriots, what better time than now to update you on the dating status of quarterback Mark Sanchez. The New York city heartthrob had been linked to reporter Lindsay McCormick, but they were said to be “just friends.” Sanchez also made fans swoon by recently saying the Jets are his girlfriend.

Both nuggets of info still didn’t stop Hollywood Life from reporting that Sanchez dumped girlfriend McCormick recently. Either their report is flat out wrong, or Sanchez and McCormick weren’t telling the truth to the press. Either scenario is entirely plausible, but HL is talking like the two were an item:

“They weren’t just dating, they were a couple. Mark told Lindsay he wasn’t seeing anyone else and she believed him. They were friends for years before they started dating, so she was shocked when he dumped her over the phone.”

I don’t know how much of this I believe, but let’s just say not much. The happenings of Mark Sanchez’s love life (outside of his girlfriend the Jets) matter little to me. However I’m not the one who matters here — we do this for the thousands of ladies who are interested in his status. And to those of you who were curious, if you do meet up with him, he probably is a single man … when he’s not watching game film.

Michael Strahan Calls Chad Ochocinco’s Engagement a Publicity Stunt

Call him a cynic, but Michael Strahan says he doesn’t have much faith in Chad Ochocinco’s romance with Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada.

I caught up with Strahan at the March of Dimes Annual Sports Lunch and asked if he thought a new joint reality show would be a good idea for Chad and Evelyn. 

“Well I think it’s all about that anyway,” said Strahan, who’s currently engaged to Eddie Murphy’s ex wife, Nicole. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re not. If [they’re not together] for the fame, then for the opportunities it presents.

Oh c’mon Mike, next you’re going to tell me you don’t believe in Santa.

Kelly Brook Says She Keeps a Cache of Athlete Wiener Pictures

Model Kelly Brook has a lot going for her. A September spread in Playboy, 32E cup size, and of course, a cornucopia of penis photos from various pro athletes.

The buxom Brit admitted that she’s been known to send a sext or two, but leaves the naked cell phone snaps to the boys like Brett Favre.

“They’re usually silly sportspeople,” Brook told Mirror, who has dated Rugby player Danny Cipriani, Jason Statham, and Glee actor Matthew Morrison. “I just keep them all for collateral.”

Boys, take a lesson–women don’t even particularly like wiener pictures, but we are going to keep them just in case you screw us over. And we definitely, definitely show our friends. At least I do. Sorry Bryan. And Pete. And Sid. And Eliot. Photos via WWTDD.com.

Is Selita Ebanks a Good Luck Charm for the New York Jets?

Maybe one of the NFL’s bottom-feeders could fly her in for a game, because the Jets seem to be doing okay.  Victoria’s Secret supermodel Selita Ebanks may be good luck for the New York Jets, who just happen to win whenever she’s cheering them on.

The leggy vixen — who once dated New York Giants defensive lineman Osi Umenyiora and may or may not still be seeing Phillies slugger Ryan Howard — was all about Gang Green this weekend.  According to the NY Post, Ebanks turned up at a viewing party in full Jets regalia and green nails to support the team’s last-minute win over the Texans, even scarfing down two hot dogs and a cannoli like any true Jets fanatic would have.  Nothing says “team spirit” like congestive heart failure.

Hilary Duff Sends Naked Pics to Pittsburgh Penguin Mike Comrie

Actress/singer/large-toothed person Hilary Duff admits that she frequently sends naked cell phone snaps to her NHL husband, Pittsburgh Penguin forward Mike Comrie.

“Oh boy I’m going to get in trouble… I send [nude] pictures but never with my face in them,” Duff admits. “Gotta keep it fun, gotta keep it interesting. He knows better than to show his hockey buddies or forward them. We are married you know.”

I hate to burst her bubble, but if she keeps her face out of the picture, then Mike is DEFINITELY going to be showing his teammates because they won’t know it’s her.

Wait, but then they might think he’s cheating—and professional athletes never do that. I’m sorry, I don’t know what I was thinking. My bad.
