Hot Sports Wife/Ex/Girlfriend of the Day
May we present...
The ex-Mrs. Dennis Rodman!!
I'm sure I am not the only only who is confused by Mo Clarett (like his lawyers), but this press release from the imaginary Mahoning Valley Thunder of the Eastern Indoor Football League confuses me even more.
‘‘We met with him at his request — at the request of an intermediary party,’’ Slyk said. ‘‘At the conclusion we decided that it was not in our best interest and not in his best interest (to sign).’’
The Thunder, an ArenaFootball2 team, plays in a predominantly passing league where quarterbacks and receivers are the main play makers. Slyk said the Thunder and Clarett agreed that the style of play in the league wasn’t conducive to his style of play.
‘‘It’s not a right fit for him or for us,’’ Slyk said. ‘‘This is a passing game. He’s a running back.’’
Clarett also said the Mahoning Valley HitMen of the expansion Eastern Indoor Football League offered him more money.
The Thunder is bound by league rules to pay each player on its team $200 per game plus a $50 bonus for each victory.
‘‘We made that clear to him right off the bat,’’ Slyk said. ‘‘The league controls it and they control it for a specific reason — so we don’t end up like the NFL with a bidding war.
‘‘We want to remain a league of development for players to move up to the AFL and for modest markets. If players keep asking for more money, that doesn’t fit into our market.’’
OK, so they didn't sign Clarett because (1) it's a passing league and he is a running back and (2) the Mahoning Valley Hitmen offered him more money. Like what, two-fitty a game and free socks? Perhaps you just didn't want the headache, no?
(By the way, when you have imaginary teams, can't you find a different place for your team to be from? I mean isn't there a city you can subsitute for "Mahoning Valley" for your squad since that's already taken by the prestigious AFL2 team?)
But really, does it matter? The league still has four "teams" and Clarett is about due to go to jail anyway.
And actually, there are only three EIFL teams listed on the league site so they are getting really close to starting up, I'd guess. Two-days will be going any day now.
Clarett himself seemed pretty fired up for the season to get started.
"I don't have many other options," said Clarett, who announced that he will play for the Mahoning Valley Hitmen of the Eastern Indoor Football League. "The one thing I can do is play football."
Wow! Hold him back!
"I swear I'm clean!"
"Well, we're just going to have to use our brains."

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Miami-Dade Circuit Court and seeks an excess of $15,000 in damages.
I'm sorry...did you say $15,000? As in fifteen thousand? Wow, this guy must be more honest than about 90% of the population. Admit it, dear reader, you'd have thrown in some "pain and suffering" wouldn't you?
Crance and Mashburn, who retired from the NBA after an injury last year, were both playing golf at the upscale LaGorce Country Club in March 2005. Crance was teeing off on the 17th hole when Mashburn hit a shot off the 18th hole that struck him in the eye, the lawsuit said.
Mashburn didn't yell "fore" when he hit the stray ball and failed "to give any warning whatsoever," the lawsuit said.
"He's permanently lost vision in one eye because of a detached retina," Koltun said.
Again...$15,000?! Dude has a detached retina from getting hit in the head by a golf ball from a player worth millions and he is suing for $15 grr? Wow. Who is representing this guy, Vinny Gambini?
In yet another in a long line of reasons why a majority of sports fans in the U.S. do not get soccer, we have this gem:
Not everyone is happy about the cemetery though.
"Some people, especially from churches, have said that it's not appropriate," Reichert said. "It's not for everyone but a lot of people are interested. Even if only one percent of our members take a place, that would be enough."
"Just another excuse to show Danica and her assets."
"To the Batphone!"
I was looking at the photo of Yahoo! Sports killshot on the wife of Tiger Woods (see post several below this one) and I couldn't help but notice how she seems to have put on a few poundages and is not quite the sexy vixen she was when she married him.
This just couldn't wait until tomorrow...

"Can I play in the NFL now?!"
"We'll get Bonds yet."
