While the New York Jets playoff hopes may somehow still be alive, that is still impossible for me to comprehend, one of the best looking fans will no longer be cheering for them. Wide receiver Scotty McKnight, who was placed on the injured reserve list, has been dating one of the most beautiful young actresses, Hayden Panettiere. Not to worry, this one is said to be amicable so do not expect any nasty drama from these two. Some people close to the couple even said that there is a possibility that these could reconcile in the future. Scotty how could you let someone that good looking go? Big mistake. Maybe Hayden just couldn’t support the Jets any longer like the rest of us.
If you can get passed the bare bottom on the back cover, you are surprisingly in for a really honest look at the NBA during the early 90s. What makes this account unique is that it is from the perspective of a player who was not the “Golden Child” at the time, but instead an outcast. Most people remember Rodman for the his hair colors, outrageous outfits, or the fact that he married himself. However, many people do forget just how good he actually was. He wasn’t the scoring machine or the guy you would want to take the last shot in a tied game, but he is the guy who would get the rebound to set up that last shot for the superstar to take. The book takes a look at all aspects of Rodman’s life including his childhood and his extremely infamous relationship with Madonna. Imagine they had a reality show? Who wouldn’t want to know their every day life. Well, Rodman gives a glimpse into it and he doesn’t hold much back. From giving sexual details to the real reason they broke it off, Rodman puts it all out there. In a different aspect, you see the human aspect of him. It always seemed like he wanted to be a character, but he was actually a very accepting and giving person. Its just that no one wanted to ever believe that so it was never made public. In the book, he talks about Magic Johnson’s decision to still play after announcing he was HIV positive, admitting that he could not understand why players like Karl Malone refused to play side by side with him. He admits that he wanted to play Johnson just as tough as he had before and he shaved the AIDS ribbon into his scalp in support of him and those struggling with the disease. He also admits that even though he didn’t have his own foundation or put his name on a charity it was because he wanted to go out there and help the people struggling. He would walk around the stadium and pass out money or tickets to the homeless, especially in Detroit. Probably the most interesting thing that he reveals is that he didn’t pick up a basketball until he was already in his twenties and he only went to a junior college after a recruiter pushed him to go. This book was definitely interesting as is everything with Dennis Rodman, even the way it is written keeps your attention. There are some lines that are bolded, some that are smaller, and some quotes that take up entire pages, but what did you expect? Twelve point Times New Roman the entire way? This is definitely worth reading especially to see which players garnered his respect and which ones he describes as overrated.
While it was never fully confirmed, all the rumors were true and there is a new person in the world to prove it. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has a new addition in his life in the form of a daughter. Brady already has two children, with two different women. This is he and supermodel wife’s second child together. Vivian Lake Brady was born on December 5th and they have a son, Benjamin Rein, who turns four today. Mom Giselle reported that Vivian is “healthy” and already “full of life”. The couple shared the above picture on her Facebook. Congrats to the couple! They have one of the most beautiful families in the country. Brady will have a few days with his new baby girl, but has a huge game on Monday Night Football against the Houston Texans.
I guess when your team just got embarrassed, it is better to spend the day with a pretty woman rather than watch the rest of your conference win. At least that seems to be the logic of New York Giants’ defensive end Osi Umenyiora. While the rest of the team was licking their wounds from Wednesday’s horrendous game, Osi was out with actress Elise Neal. Hopefully, the rest of the Giants were watching some football, preferably the Buccaneers since they are coming into to town this Sunday. The two were seen out in New York City eating and walking the streets. Osi has proven he has good at walking around as that is all he contributed to Wednesday’s game.
