Mark Cuban Will Dance With the Stars: Cuban's The Benefactor was an Apprenctice rip-off that flopped horribly. Of course, at least there the joke was on the participants, not him. Not so with his latest gig.
ESPN And the Michael Vick 'Scoop': ESPN's own legal analyst, Roger Cossack, said he found the report hard to believe. ESPN should have given at least as much weight to Cossack's commentary as it did to the report that Vick would admit to nothing. If it had, maybe newspaper reporters wouldn't be writing things this morning like, "ESPN didn't know what it was talking about."
Michael Vick on Tom Joyner Tuesday: Although Joyner isn't likely to give Vick a Mike Wallace-type interview, he also won't give the kind of gushing, embarrassing softball interview that Porsche Foxx gave Vick last month.
That Fitted Is Not Hot, Son: Official MLB Licensed Gang Wear Is Protested: New Era couldn't have possibly known what they were doing ... right? Maybe -- except for the fact they've been called on this before and actually recalled 100 hats from a store in Cleveland back in June as a result. Let's see how proactive they are this time around.
The Hornets Have No Chance in NOLA: "It was a marginal two-team city before Hurricane Katrina. And now it's a devastated city that is much less capable than it was before the storm. It's wait-and-see."

Human Cockfighting? At UFC 74, Babalu Choked David Heath and Didn't Let Go: If his league is ever going to completely shed the ridiculous "human cockfighting" label, Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White needs to come down hard on Renato "Babalu" Sobral for his actions at UFC 74.
Chris Rainey Likes White Chicks: You may remember the decorated running back recruit from a few months ago, when he told a local newspaper "it's real nice to be me" because random strangers would come up to him and offer money. Well, it's still real nice to be Chris Rainey, but for, um, other reasons:
"Every time you see a fine girl (in Gainesville), you see another fine girl better than her. (Some people) like different color girls and stuff like that. I'm a white girl man."Well, that's... direct.
Broncos Running Back Travis Henry Has Nine Children by Nine Different Women: Henry has a lot of money. Enough that he has a $100,000 car. Enough that he's spent $146,000 on jewelry. But not enough to take care of his kids.
Video: Brian Leonard Goes All Edwin Moses on Fabian Washington: Leonard leapfrogged cornerback Fabian Washington on his way to a 15-yard gain. And here's the embarrassing visual evidence.
