Bubba the Love Sponge’s wife Heather Clem reportedly made sex tapes with Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Tony Stewart

This sex tape business involving wrestler Hulk Hogan, shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge, and Bubba’s ex-wife Heather Clem (now Heather Cole, and pictured) is taking another wild turn.

We passed along a report in March saying that an alleged Hulk Hogan sex tape was being shopped. The video was real, and Gawker.com was sued by the Hulkster for publishing it.

The video was of Hogan having sex with the ex-wife of radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge, Heather Clem. Reports last month claimed that Clem regularly had sex with other men with Bubba’s consent, so long as she videotaped it.

Now, Gawker, which is being sued for $100 million for posting a clip of the sex tape on their website, reports that Deion Sanders, Warren Sapp, Tony Stewart, and Aubrey Huff are among those who also had sex with Clem on tape.

It seems like an odd group, but we can at least explain two of the hookups: former Bucs DL Sapp and former Rays 1B/OF Huff were both big athletes in the Tampa area where Bubba broadcasts from. And Stewart, well Stewart just loves women.

Aubrey Huff suffers knee injury celebrating Matt Cain’s perfect game

This seems to happen all the time in professional baseball, but we never tire of talking about it. Once again, an MLB player has managed to injure himself during a celebration. Wednesday night’s victim was Aubrey Huff, and he fell at the hands of Matt Cain’s perfect game.

According to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area’s Rael Enteen, Huff has an MRI scheduled for his knee and San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy has not ruled out a trip to the disabled list for his first baseman. As you can see from the animation above that SB Nation passed along, Huff took a tumble jumping over the dugout railing after the final out of the game.

With plays like this one over the course of the historic evening, it’s easy to understand why Huff was overflowing with excitement. Believe it or not — and I’m sure it’s easy to believe now given how many times this has happened — Huff’s injury is the second celebration injury in baseball this month. Just a couple of weeks ago, Mets reliever Ramon Hernandez injured his hamstring sprinting to the celebration pile after Johan Santana’s no hitter.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: somebody get these guys a plastic bubble.

Aubrey Huff Hoping Pilates Can Lead to Bounceback Season

If there’s one thing Aubrey Huff has lacked since leaving Tampa Bay in 2006, it’s consistency. He’s had bad seasons and followed them with good ones. That has been the case with the Giants.

In 2009, Huff hit 26 home runs and OPSd .891 on a one-year $3 million deal with the club. After winning the World Series, San Francisco decided to bring him back on a two-year $22 million deal. Huff played poorly and batted just .246 with 12 home runs. He admits he didn’t prepare as well as he should have entering last season, and he admits he deserved the criticism he received. He’s hoping a return to his 2009 offseason routine of doing Pilates several times a week will lead to a strong 2011 campaign.

“I think I’m preparing a lot better this offseason as far as Pilates,” Huff told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Huff’s wife is a Pilates instructor, and the thonged man did it three times a week leading into his ’09 season. He says it helped his muscles, back, and overall well-being, but “for some stupid reason” he didn’t do it last year.

Folks may clown Huff doing women’s exercises, but a real man will do whatever it takes to ensure he has success. At the least, Huff owes it to the Giants, if not himself, to do whatever he can to get regain his top form. And as someone who used to do Yogalates on a regular basis, I can tell you that stuff helps. Maybe I need to get back to it too.

Aubrey Huff Has Body Drawn in Right Field by Teammates

Aubrey Huff has been a corner infielder most of his career, but he’s also played the corner outfield positions a fair amount. That doesn’t mean he does it well. After right fielder Cody Ross got hurt in spring training, the Giants decided to promote rookie Brandon Belt to the major leagues and put him at first. They moved Huff to right field and he’s endured some struggles out there.

Before Sunday’s game against the Dodgers, teammates Pat Burrell (aka the Machine) and Dan Runzler drew a mock chock outline of Huff’s body in right field making a joke of how he’s dying out there from making sprawling catches, as you can see in the picture above via Andrew Baggarly. Sadly, Huff played to form in the first inning when he misplayed a ball allowing Jamey Carroll an RBI triple. Poor show Aubrey, poor show.

MLB Free Agent Contracts Have Gotten Completely Out of Hand

It almost feels like Christmas in December. It’s baseball’s annual right of passage, winter free agent signings that net sums of money so ghastly even hedge fund managers are blushing. At this rate, the good folks at Major League Baseball may have to change the name to World $eries. The holidays are upon us, but don’t be confused. That slightly rotund fellow wearing red ain’t Santy Claus, it’s Lance Berkman, who last season ho-ho-hummed his way to a .248 batting average yet still Madoff with eight million dollars from the Cardinals. Nope, there’s no jolly old Saint Nick Punto or Johnson (they haven’t been signed yet).

What’s a Jayson worth you ask? Well, aside from the gross misspelling (someone should let him know already), how about a tidy $126 million over seven years. Forget a spruce, the Nats’ new addition may now hang his ornaments on a sequoia. I thought the folks in Washington DC were trying to rein in wasteful spending. He’d better do well in the nation’s capital or else someone in the Nationals’ front office made a huge Boehner. Ostensibly, there were no three wise men behind that deal.

Each year, baseball’s general managers descend on Florida like so many aging retirees who sport various shades of vibrantly-colored plaid pants. Both come in search of early bird specials. The only difference is that Dave Dombrowski is more likely to splurge on an overcooked piece of meat than, say, Uncle Mort. One can only imagine the reaction of Joaquin Benoit, a 33-year-old right-hander signed by the Tigers for $16.5 million despite the fact he has a career ERA approaching the Michigan state sales tax and a less-than-stellar 31-28 career record. He may be dashing through the snow in the Motor City, but can probably now afford more than one horse to pull that open sleigh (though convertibles are not really trendy in the D in the middle of winter).

MLB Hot Stove Analysis: Victor Martinez, Aubrey Huff

The Detroit Tigers are said to be close to signing free agent catcher Victor Martinez to a four-year $50 million deal.  Martinez, 32 in December, is coming off a .302/.351/.493 season for the Red Sox where he hit 20 home runs and drove in 79 runs, hitting in the middle of the Sox lineup.  He will  step in as the Tigers every day catcher for at least the first two years of the deal and perhaps shift to a Jorge Posada-like DH/catcher time share as he gets into the latter part of the deal.

This is a good signing for the Tigers, despite the long-term commitment, because they believe they have a two or three-year window of opportunity to win now, led by a core consisting of Miguel Cabrera and Justin Verlander.   Martinez has earned rave reviews throughout his career for his leadership and work ethic in Cleveland and Boston and will be a great addition to their club house.

Aubrey Huff Went Zoolander with Red Thong at Giants Parade (Video)

With so many updates on Aubrey Huff’s red rally thong, we may have to rename this site Huff’s Thong Sports instead. Here’s the background on the thong in case you’re unaware, and it must be pointed out that Huff had it in his mouth at the parade. He wore that thing every day at the end of the season – gross. But what is really cool is that Huff went straight Zoolander with the thong at the parade. If you don’t know what that means, check out the video:

I’m just glad he didn’t wind up with an atomic wedgie after that stunt!
