No, Tim Tebow Did Not Help Nick Swisher Propose to Joanna Garcia

Tim Tebow may have saved the manatees and he may be able to touch MC Hammer, but he did not help Nick Swisher propose to girlfriend Joanna Garcia. In a wild rumor amongst rumors, Swisher’s wikipedia page suggests “Football player Tim Tebow assisted Swisher with requesting Garcia’s hand in marriage by speaking to her parents.” Rather than blaming wikipedia for the story, the onus is probably on this June story in the Orlando Sentinel.

Even if many of us have learned better than to simply trust wikipedia (or the Orlando Sentinel in this case), a writer for Florida Today either took the bait or thought this would make for a cute story. He approached Nick Swisher armed with the story in hand to give Swish a chance at denial. And did Swisher deny!

“I’m a man! I don’t need to do that! Where’d you hear that?”

“It’s on Wikipedia,” I said.

“Dude, you’re in the media. You know better than to believe Wikipedia.”

Matt Leinart and The Bachelorette?

It’s been a relatively quiet off-season for Matt Leinart and that’s a good thing lest he become the answer to another Jeopardy question. While things in Arizona have centered around how well the former Heisman will be able to replace the recently retired Kurt Warner, Leinart’s name managed to sneak into the gossip rags everywhere else. According to Star Magazine, Leinart was spotted spitting game to The Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky:

When Ali and Matt met on July 15 at a charity event, sparks flew — especially after they had time to talk by themselves. By the end of the night, the jock scored Ali’s digits.

“Matt finally asked for Ali’s phone number and she happily gave it to him,” an eyewitness tells Star. “He promised that he’d call her

Hopefully Matty acted quickly knowing that training camp was coming up. Much like the way Chad Ochocinco’s close relationship with dance partner Cheryl Burke ruined his dating show, this news is screwing up the final episode of The Bachelorette where Ali is supposed to choose her suitor. Maybe in a few months we’ll see Fedotowsky holding it down in a luxury box at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale cheering on her new man.

Dallas Cowboys Like Being Nude

In the past two days, nude photos of two Dallas Cowboys have somehow hit the internet. Yesterday, nude pictures that Martellus Bennet allegedly sent his ex-girlfriend hit the web, and he has since apologized. The next apology will be coming from Cowboys safety Mike Hamlin for his nude photo, and possibly the Cowboys organization as this seems to be a growing problem. The actual photos show more, obviously, but this isn’t a porn website so I’ll spare everyone.

Could these two pictures look any more alike? How is it that they are almost an identical photo and they’ve been discovered on consecutive days. This situation is about as weird as it gets if you ask me. I’m sorry to say that I’m not convinced they weren’t sending these pictures to each other. Just a thought. A sick one, but a thought nonetheless.

Photos: A-Rod and Cameron Diaz Take a NYC Helicopter Ride

Aren’t private helicopter rides expensive? I hope this athlete-celebrity couple could afford to eat the next day after putting up that kind of money. Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez supposedly attended C.C. Sabathia’s 30th birthday bash at Jay Z’s club on Sunday evening and tried to keep their distance from each other. The couple of three-or-so months was of course trying not to appease the paparazzi, but they were spotted later boarding a helicopter at a helipad in Hell’s Kitchen. Nice country, America. Here’s some pictures of A-Rod and Cameron Diaz before their helicopter ride, courtesy of Just Jared via The Big Lead:

ESPN Reporters Practice Backstabbing?

If Joey Votto doesn’t have to like his teammates at the All-Star Game, why should ESPN reporters have to play nice with their co-workers? According to some nifty reporting done by The Big Lead, they don’t. While Rachel Nichols and Jeremy Schaap are denying there was ever any type of friction between them, sources have told The Big Lead that Nichols tried to steal a Plaxico Burress interview from Schaap in August of 2009.

According to the report, Nichols was sending text messages to Burress when he sat down for an interview with Schaap to talk about his unlicensed gun case. Burress allegedly showed Schaap the texts and went on to conduct the interview. Sources say Schaap even told an ESPN news editor what had happened, although based on his comments today through ESPN PR he’d certainly deny that. Here’s what ESPN’s PR department had to say about the alleged incident:

Lindsay Lohan Loves Her Tony Romo

Two names you never thought would wind up connected: Lindsay Lohan and Tony Romo. Alas, it is such.

Romo has dated his share of hot and famous ladies over the past few years, but who would have ever expected the ankle box herself to fall in love with good ole’ number nine? Here’s the nuts and bolts from Hollywood Life:

HollywoodLife.com caught the hard-partying starlet and her family getting all googly-eyed over the Dallas Cowboys quarterback at Smashbox Studios in Culver City, Calif. July 12. Dina, 47, approached Tony, 30, first, asking if Lindsay could have an autograph.

Literally two seconds later, Lindsay, 24, who was wearing huge boots to hide her SCRAM bracelet and Ali, 16, walked in and made a beeline for Tony and asked to take a photograph with him. After he walked away, the sisters looked at one another and squealed, “He’s hot!”

Maybe she just can’t resist that quarterback/golfer charm. Our advice to Tony? Run. Candice Crawford cannot be pleased.

Ochocinco Arrested…Or Not

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco was (possibly) involved in a scrum early Monday morning in New York which is, of course, well-documented on his Twitter account. Initially, it looked as though Ochocinco was going to find himself in trouble after getting into a fight with a bouncer at a Manhattan night club. Here’s his first Tweet when the incident began:

Man this some bull s***, @therealbebe left me outside the club, they won’t let me in without my I.D. the bouncer talkin bout JETS JETS JETS

Shortly thereafter it appeared that the reality TV star had been arrested and was in the back of a police car:

Damn I just got in a fight with the bouncer, them damn boxing sessions got me on point, at least the police let me keep tweetin n the car?

That’s about the point you’d be thinking, “uh oh,” if you’re a Bengals fan or if you’re Commissioner Roger Goodell. However, it turns out the police agreed the bouncer was the aggressor and arrested him for assaulting Chad. It looks like Ochocinco made a few new friends in the process. He also took a moment to reassure the commish that he need not worry:
