New, Must Read Details From Damon Evans Arrest

After we posted on Thursday about Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans being arrested on charges of a DUI, new details about the story were released, as is always the case.  Sports by Brooks — who has been all over this thing since it broke — released two follow-up stories about the incident on Friday.  The first informed us that Evans had a 28-year-old female passenger with him at the time of his arrest, who he later said was a friend of his named Courtney Fuhrmann (pictures of her below).

Evans is married with two children, but I decided to let that slide for the time being and see if it gained anymore steam.  Boy, did it ever.  Brooks’ second follow-up provides some extremely embarrassing details that will probably result in Evans losing his wife on top of his job. Here are the best snip-its from the report, as told by Christian Boone of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

The passenger in Evans’ 2009 BMW, 28-year-old Courtney Fuhrmann, was being “very loud and obnoxious and was obviously intoxicated,” Cabe wrote. Fuhrmann, who Evans called “just a friend” at a press conference Thursday afternoon, was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. He told the trooper “there was nothing there” between him and the Buckhead woman, “because he had a wife and family.”

The trooper, who noted that Evans had a pair of red panties in between his legs, asked the athletic director “what her panties were doing in his side of the seat. He stated, ‘She took them off and I held them because I was just trying to get her home.’ “

K-Mart Gets Rid of Ridiculous Tattoo

These pictures of Kenyon Martin’s lips tattoo being covered up, courtesy of Sports by Brooks, seem to indicate he has suffered a serious break-up with his former girlfriend — a rapper named Trina.  Brooks’ source sent him the photos that he had taken in a Miami night club called Lux Nightclub and said K-Mart was with a woman that night that was not Trina.  Here’s what Martin had to say about the tattoo when he got it back in 2008:

It’s just something that I wanted to get a while ago, but I’m not just gonna get it for anyone .. (someone) who is special to me, who means something to me.“

If breaking up with this woman means getting rid of arguably the most ridiculous tattoo a professional athlete has ever gotten, then I’d say it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to K-Mart.  That thing was tough to even look at.  Who wants to see a grown man playing basketball on national television with a red pair of lips tattooed on his neck?  Certainly not me.  Maybe I’ll be able to watch a few more Nuggets games now.  Probably not.

Tony Romo Does Six Flags

As we all know, Tony Romo has had his fair share of high-profile, great-looking girlfriends.  That means he has taken them on plenty of dates, as any decent boyfriend who’s worth millions of dollars should.  However, he doesn’t stop there.  Romo must really like his latest girlfriend and supposed fiancee, Candice Crawford.  Why do I say that you ask?  Because the person he’s bro’ing out with at Six Flags in the pictures above is her brother, Chace Crawford.  This one must be serious if he and his better half’s siblings are going on man dates.

Way to go, Tony.  You’re in.  I don’t ever remember seeing Romo and the brothers of Carrie Underwood, Jessica Simpson, or Sophia Bush (if they have any) tearing it up at Six Flags.  As usual, we’ll leave you with a few pictures to remind you of Tony Romo’s lineup in case you’ve forgotten (a.k.a like looking at his current and ex-girlfriends as much as we do):

Pau Gasol: My New Favorite…Nope, There’s Just No Way I’m Saying That

Add Silvia Lopez Castro to the list of Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends. As a Celtics fan, I can’t bring myself to give Pau Gasol a sincere compliment.  In the interest of continuing a tradition I will, however, admit that his girlfriend is hot.  He’s supposedly been dating Silvia Lopez Castro, a Dream Cheers cheerleader, for a while now.  Dream Cheers is a traveling dance group that performs halftime shows for sports teams like FC Barcelona.

Shouldn’t she be dating some soccer player or someone whose looks haven’t been compared to more animals than anyone in the history of professional sports?  None the less, my opinion doesn’t matter and she’s settled with the llama.  And at the end of the day Gasol’s a lucky man — one with two straight championships and a trophy girlfriend. On a different note, could this purse have belonged to her? Certainly makes one think.  Here are some photos of Pau Gasol’s girlfriend, cheerleader Silvia Lopez Castro, for your viewing pleasure.

Landon Donovan Has Love Child in U.K.?

It’s amazing the way things can change so quickly. Landon Donovan gained hero status in the U.S. with a late goal to beat Algeria 1-0 giving the U.S. the Group C win. Donovan also scored the lone goal in USA’s loss to Ghana, and the first of two U.S. goals against Slovenia. But you know the way things work — they can only stay golden for so long before the moment is ruined.

The U.S. soccer bandwagon came apart on Saturday with the loss to Ghana and Donovan said the team was “naive” going into the game. They seemed unfocused as they fell behind early on and were outplayed most of the match. Maybe “distracted” was the word Donovan should have used. Grant Wahl of SI found out that a U.K. tabloid was prepared to run a story that Donovan knocked up a woman while he was on loan from the Galaxy to Everton in England earlier this year.

Donovan told Wahl he was made aware of the report during the World Cup which I’m sure didn’t exactly put his mind at ease. I don’t know when he found out the information but he sure played well for a guy who just had a bomb dropped on him. As if this report wasn’t bad enough, it comes at a time when Donovan was optimistic that his failing marriage was on its way to being repaired. I guess you can never have it all.

Erin Andrews and Aaron Rodgers Out Drinking Together Sparks Rumors

In our gossip hungry society, all it takes is one small item to get people buzzing. As a result, people like Kim Kardashian and Miles Austin reportedly took extensive steps to avoid being seen in public at Game 6 of the NBA Finals but the National Enquirer still got the scoop on them. The point is that when you’re a public figure, there’s a lot of interest in your daily activities. Our latest evidence comes from an extensive piece written by A.J. Daulerio at Deadspin regarding Erin Andrews’ status as a reporter for ESPN. Daulerio says ESPN is grooming Jenn Brown as a potential replacement for Andrews whose contract is expiring. Towards the end of his post, Daulerio added the following rumor about Erin Andrews and Aaron Rodgers:

Because the latest [Erin Andrews] romance gossip circulating around the Bristol cafeteria right now involves not Maks [Chmerkovskiy], but Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The two were spotted by other ESPN people last week drinking (closely) at the bar underneath Boston’s Liberty hotel.

Brooke Hundley Roasts ESPN on the CBS Early Show

Brooke Hundley, the 23-year-old former ESPN employee who had an affair with Steve Phillips, appeared on the CBS Early Show on Thursday morning and had some not-so-nice things to say about the way ESPN does business behind the scenes.  Hundley has sued ESPN for more than $15,ooo in damages claiming that she was terminated as a result of complaints she filed about Steve Phillips’ conduct.  Whether the things she told the Early Show are true or not, ESPN’s big-wigs can’t be pleased that she’s claiming sexual harassment is a part of every day life as a female employee of ESPN and doing it on national television.  Check out the video of Brooke Hundley talking about ESPN and her affair with Steve Phillips on the CBS Early Show, courtesy of The Big Lead:

Pretty heavy stuff.  Disney/ESPN is such a major corporation that I doubt this will result in a huge scandal or PR hit, but if more women start coming forward and saying that Hundley is telling the truth about every day life working for ESPN they could find themselves in some pretty hot water.  On a seperate note, if you’d like to gain an appreciation for the power of an “I’m about to appear on TV” makeup job, check out these other pictures of Brooke Hundley:
