Jenn Sterger Meets With NFL, Could Be Bad News for Brett Favre

Bad news for Brett Favre today regarding the sexual harassment allegations against him, as the NY Post is reporting that Jenn Sterger met with the NFL on Thursday.  Sterger and her lawyer, Joseph Conway, and manager, Phil Reese, sat down with NFL security chief Milt Ahlerich and another league investigator and “cooperated fully by providing them with substantial materials,” according to Reese.

A few weeks back, it sounded like Sterger was open to accepting a payoff from the Favre camp.  Either no agreement was reached, or she changed her mind.  Not longer after that report surfaced, Favre decided to admit to leaving the voicemails on Sterger’s phone but deny sending her any explicit photos.  The intriguing thing about that claim is that Deadspin insists the phone calls, voicemails, and picture messages were all sent from the same phone number.  Guess someone stole Brett’s phone and decided to send inappropriate pictures of himself.

Now, Favre’s future essentially rests on what was discussed in that meeting.  We already know he tried to contact Sterger in a persistent manner, as the voicemails he admitted to leaving prove.  Sterger is the only first-hand source that can out Favre, and if she chose to on Thursday and claimed she felt she was being sexually harassed, the league would have no choice but to reprimand Favre for violating the personal conduct policy.  Unless some sort of agreement was reached on the side and Sterger had nothing but nice things to say about the Vikings’ quarterback, we could see No. 4’s consecutive games played streak could finally come crashing to a halt.

Jenn Sterger Will Keep Quiet if Brett Favre Pays Her Off

I’m stunned.  Shocked, even.  How could something like this be true about such a nice girl?  If Brett Favre truly did sexually harass Jenn Sterger, wouldn’t we expect a wholesome young lady like her to seek the proper legal resolution and not just try to fatten up her bank account?  Wait, what am I saying?  Give me a break — it’s Saturday morning.

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, via Pro Football Talk, Sterger will decline the NFL’s interview request if she reaches a settlement with Favre, a.k.a. he can pay her off.  In a stunning turn of events from this ongoing Saga, Sterger would appear to be completely admitting that it’s all about the money.

This kind of seems like a lose-lose for Favre, no?  I thought the idea of paying someone off on the side is to keep things on the down low.  If the mainstream media knows that Sterger is willing to reach a “settlement” with Favre, then everyone knows he’s guilty anyway.  Not only do people still think he’s a dirt bag, he’s also out millions of dollars.  I guess you could argue he’d spend a ton of money in lawyer fees anyway, but it seems dumb to me.  In any event, Favre can certainly afford to pay her off and it’s what we all expected would happen.

Sasha Vujacic Engaged to Maria Sharapova

According to a TMZ report, Sasha Vujacic and Maria Sharapova are engaged.  For some reason, I can’t stand Sasha Vujacic.  I got tired of hearing about him in the 2007 NBA playoffs and it kind of went downhill from there.  He’s not even good.  Plus, he let Chris Paul completely punk him out and get in his head because Paul was being such a meanie.

However, this engagement doesn’t bother me in the slightest.  Call me crazy, but I’m not a Sharapova guy.  I just don’t see the hotness.  I feel bad that some creep once photographed her crotch, but I can’t understand the hype.  That being said, she’s still probably too good for Sasha.  For those of you who are Sharapova guys (or gals), here are some pictures of Sasha Vujacic’s new fiancee.


Anthony Kim Seems Like Quite the Party Animal

Look, I’ve never met Anthony Kim so I can’t fairly comment on his off-course behavior, but I will say this about him: he seems like he would be a fun guy to party with. A day after it was reported that Kim went off on an f-bomb tirade while playing high-end craps at the Bellagio, the golfer pulled out of Justin Timberlake’s tournament. Kim was termed a “loose cannon” who was asked to tone it down at the Bellagio. We’re told the reason Kim withdrew from the tournament is his thumb has been bothering him.

While we know that Kim is recovering from thumb surgery that kept him out of action for a long period of time, it’s hard not to speculate that Kim leaving the tournament wasn’t related to the embarrassing press coverage he received. The real kicker came courtesy of Truth and Rumors which cited a tweet from a Palms hotel DJ saying: “Anthony Kim is an animal 115 bottles then to top it off a 25k bottle of Dom, which he showered the dance floor with…”

If Kim were targeting the Happy Gilmore fanbase, it looks like he’s accomplished his mission. In related news, this can’t be good for Las Vegas’ board of tourism. What happened to their infamous slogan?

Junior Seau Drove Off a Cliff After Domestic Violence Arrest

Talk about headlines you never expected to see, former Chargers, Patriots, Dolphins, and Trojans linebacker Junior Seau was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence early Monday morning according to TMZ. Thirty Mile Zone’s radius apparently extended down the coast to Carlsbad where they obtained photos of Seau’s sled going over the cliffs to the shore. This particular beach shot of Seau’s car off the cliff comes courtesy of Ryan Sattley from 10NEWS:

10News KGTV in San Diego says Seau was charged with felony spousal assault with injury. They’re also reporting that Seau drove his Cadillac Escalade off the cliff after he was released from custody. Miraculously, Junior escaped with only cuts and bruises and was taken to the hospital. Let’s just hope everything works out well for Seau and his live-in girlfriend, with whom he had the problem early in the morning.

UPDATE: Oceanside police has added more:

On October 18, 2010 at approximately 12:20 a.m. 41-year-old Junior Seau was arrested for the alleged assault of his 25-year-old live-in girlfriend. The victim reportedly sustained minor injuries that did not require medical treatment.

On October 17, 2010 at 10:13 p.m. Police were dispatched to the Seau residence on South Strand in Oceanside to investigate the report of a domestic violence assault. The 25-year-old victim reported that Junior Seau assaulted her during a verbal argument. Seau was not at the residence when police arrived. Seau called the victim while police were on scene and spoke to the officers; he agreed to return to the home. Shortly after midnight Seau drove back to the scene and he was arrested without incident as he approached the residence.

T.O. Using Kelleher International Matchmaker Service to Find Love

So Terrell Owens is athletic, rich, ripped, and famous, yet he needs a matchmaker to find a woman? Someone has to ‘splain that to me. It doesn’t make a lot of sense, so maybe he was getting paid by the Kelleher Matchmaker service to promote their service, in which case he’s done his job. From the NY Post:

Outspoken Owens, who’s been linked to model Jessica White, has hired Kelleher International to help find a main squeeze who looks like bodacious Kim Kardashian — “who I happen to think is gorgeous,” he said. Kelleher, run by mother and daughter team Jill and Amber Kelleher, has 18 international offices and charges clients anywhere from $15,000 to $150,000.

He must be getting a kick back for this because I can’t understand why he’d do it otherwise. Doesn’t he have an agent to take care of his dirty work? Man, he could have saved himself $14,950 just with a subscription to eharmony.com. He should try that next time.

Serena and Common Apparently Back on

Serena Williams and rapper Common have had an off-and-on relationship for a couple of years. Despite Common saying he planned to get married back in May (though not specifically to Serena), the couple split later in the month. Serena explained that Common’s demanding schedule made it tough for him to maintain their relationship. Well, only a few months later it seems like the two could not live without one another.

The couple was seen leaving the Patriots/Dolphins game in Miami Monday night. As if that wasn’t enough, Popsugar caught the two hanging out together on the beach and it looks like they were having a good time.

Serena missed the U.S. Open because of a foot injury and has been taking time off to recover. This looks like the type of rehab most people would love to go through.
