Dwayne Wade was in the Heat vs Lakers 2010 Christmas Day Game, and with an injured knee he was expected to be slow and sluggish. However, that's not how everything went down. The Heat beat the Lakers, who are the reigning NBA Champions.
Dwyane Wade played with a lot of passion - and although he only received 18 points and 6 assists, the Lakers didn't really seem interested in guarding him.
In fact, the Lakers played as if they lacked any drive to win. If this were the playoffs, my money would be on the Heat! After all, they have LeBron, Dwyane Wade, and many other great players.
Christmas Day sports are always exciting. It's really not surprising that the Lakers wouldn't put their best feet forward, so to speak - after all, everyone would rather be with their families!
Still yet, today's performance by Dwyane Wade was impressive. Although he was injured, he still made great contributions to his team and was able to bring the Heat fans the best Christmas present of them all - a win against the reigning champions, the LA Lakers.

"He basically came in there and said, 'You guys might know about the situation; some of you guys might not know,'" Revis said. "'You'll find out later on today. Right now, I feel embarrassed, but it's something personal with me. We need to focus on Chicago.'"
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets coach Rex Ryan says it's a "personal matter" and declined to talk about a "foot-fetish" report posted by the sports website Deadspin that show four videos of a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to Ryan's wife, Michelle.
The videos show a woman displaying her toes to an off-screen cameraman who sounds a lot like the coach. The two are having an intimate chat about her feet.
Asked about it during a conference call Wednesday, Ryan said he is "not really going to discuss it."
This isn't the first time the Jets have turned up on Deadspin this season.
In October, the site reported that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre sent racy text messages and photos to a former game hostess while he was the Jets' quarterback in 2008.
The NFL is still investigating the allegations.

Thankfully, this Sara Bareilles single is one of those Western releases I didn't overlook this year. Had I not heard this, I would've missed out on one of the best songs of the year!
Sara Bareilles' first album was one of the first albums I'd willingly listen to from start to finish - it was also one of the albums I was avidly listening to when I just started PRN. The ingenious lyrics (even if I don't care about them - they made me notice them), the solid, piano-driven arrangements, the strong and emotional vocals and the drop-dead gorgeous songs all thrown into the glory that was that album just make me want to listen to it again.
After years of waiting, and her first album never really going out of style, she came back this year with this gorgeous song. When I first reviewed this I was all for it - fantastic production, real drums and a distinctly-Sara sound. Now that I listen over to it and write about it again, I'm ready to fall to my feet.
This is the pop I was talking about when I wrote about the Katy Perry song, only without the excessiveness - King of Anything has class, thank you very much. But even with all the "class" I say it has, it manages to capture that same element of fun that mainstream American pop has.
The elements are probably the polar opposites of the ones on the Katy Perry song - trumpets, Sara's staple stomping piano, a lay-low melody and REAL DRUMS with a touch of real cymbals - yet it's fun and an absolute pleasure to listen to. Over, and over, and over, and over again for ever and ever and ever.
SNL is only truly good by millenials’ standards when a Digital Short hits, and the rare and special times when the Lonely Island boys are rapping are the times that gets my generation to call SNL great. And, in truth, adding Akon, Blake Lively, Jessica Alba, and John McEnroe (!) to that formula should probably have been better than this, but the “Yeah, this happened” aspect of “I Just Had Sex” is what’s going to matter to the lion’s share of the folks who will run up the view count on Hulu and put this on their iPods. Akon really seems into it, though. And yay for repping consensual, awkward sex!

A full lunar eclipse will take place in the early hours of December 21 in the night skies over Toronto. And, unlike meteor showers and the northern lights, you don't need to leave the city to see it. So long as the sky is clear, the phenomenon will be widely visible.
What's perhaps even more noteworthy about this event is that it takes place on the winter solstice -- though I can't imagine this'll mean a whole lot to those not immersed in New Age philosophy (weird link!). But regardless of the date -- and the fact that it might be a tad chilly outside -- I think full lunar eclipses are pretty damn cool, particularly when the moon takes on that odd red glow.
Here's Nasa with the details: "The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST (Monday, Dec. 20th, at 10:33 pm PST). At that time, Earth's shadow will appear as a dark-red bite at the edge of the lunar disk. It takes about an hour for the "bite" to expand and swallow the entire Moon. Totality commences at 02:41 am EST (11:41 pm PST) and lasts for 72 minutes."
That's not exactly early for those who generally hit the hay while the night is still young, but given that the last lunar eclipse was in 2008 and the next won't happen until 2014, it might be worth staying up for. And photographers, remember to get out your tripod and the longest lens you have -- otherwise the moon will just be a blurry red speck amidst a black background.
You'll hardly find a boxing crowd or environment more exciting than the one in Quebec City on Saturday evening for the Jean Pascal vs. Bernard Hopkins fight. Pascal's WBC title and the Ring light heavyweight title were at stake, and the 45-year-old Hopkins was looking to make history by becoming the oldest man to win one of the major belts in the sport. With the intoxicating crowd in full effect, Hopkins relished playing the villain, and Pascal seemed to equally relish playing the role of hometown hero.
When the fight began, it looked as if the speed, youth and athleticism of Jean Pascal would simply be too much for ol' B-Hop. At the end of the first round, Hopkins got sent to the canvas, for the first time in 16 years, although the punch landed behind the head and seemed to push Hopkins down as much as anything.
However, Hopkins then got sent down in the third round again, and while he complained of a slip, this was a legitimate ruling, as he was hit with several left hooks before going down. Still, he didn't seem any worse for the wear.
From there, Hopkins started to get more comfortable, and appeared to get a handle on the awkward timing and surprising quickness of Pascal. He dictated the pace of the bout, and was actually both out-landing and out-throwing Pascal as the middle rounds began to tick away. That actually held true for the duration of the bout, and Hopkins put up the better punch stats than his younger counterpart. It wasn't just about numbers though, Hopkins was landing the cleaner, crisper shots, and was controlling where and how the action took place.
As Hopkins came on, landing fierce body shots, outworking the man 18 years his minor and clowning around by sticking out his chin and tongue at various points in the evening, Pascal began to tire. With the championship rounds underway it seemed like Hopkins was going for the kill. Pascal looked gassed, and Hopkins was turning up the heat even more. In the 11th, Pascal ended up on the canvas, and while it was properly ruled a slip it showed Pascal's physical and perhaps mental condition at the time.
The 12th round was a war, with both men winging wild shots and egging the other man on as the crowd became frantic and wild. The two taunted each other, stood toe to toe, and traded bombs all the way until the closing bell.
When that final bell sounded there was no question about it, Hopkins, old enough to be the champion's father, was fresher and was in the midst of yet another career defining performance at the end of a decade that had been full of them. But were those two knockdowns, and the points Hopkins lost as a result, enough to allow Pascal to retain his title?
Indeed they were, although Pascal didn't get the W on his ledger. Instead, the final scorecards read 114-112 Hopkins, 113-113 and 114-114, for a Majority Draw. Pascal retains the title as a consequence, and the crowd, unabashedly pro-Pascal, booed the decision.
Thanks for checking out the Hopkins vs. Pascal results from Proboxing-Fans.com and keep on tuning back for more of the latest boxing news.

Hough addressed the situation at the "Acoustic Christmas Concert" in Boston on Dec. 17, saying "This next song -- funny story. I shot a music video for it... and CMT kind of banned it. Apparently I was taking off too many clothes as I was dancing around my bedroom. But I don't know -- I kind of liked it."
While Hough says CMT found the video too steamy, CMT is singing a different tune. They are saying the video was pulled due to contract negotiations and that it will be put back in the line-up once the issues are resolved.
Watch the video here and tell us if you think Hough's video is too hot for TV:

Though the actor is alive and well, a rumor rocketed across the internet on Thursday that CNN had reported his death.
"RT @CNN: Breaking News: actor Morgan Freeman has passed away in his Burbank home," many Twitter users posted on Thursday evening.
On Twitter, a post starting with the letters RT indicates that a user is simply re-tweeting what another user has said.
Confusion continued to spread as Twitter users "re-tweeted" or re-posted the post purportedly from CNN.
The post was re-tweeted by many other media outlets, including LiveNewsWire and ESPN's Bruce Feldman, as well as Borders headquarters.
This epidemic of re-tweets caused many to believe that CNN had posted the news, and others were simply passing it on.
But CNN's Twitter account did not display the original post, leading users to wonder whether it had been deleted as a retraction, or was potentially hacked.
"Now I'm curious if CNN even tweeted a statement about Morgan Freeman, or if someone simply hoaxed the tweet with a 'RT @CNN,'" one user wrote.
CNN itself cleared up the rumors on Thursday evening with a post to its official Twitter page.
"CNN did not report Morgan Freeman death," the network stated.
"Rumor is false. CNN will aggressively investigate this hoax."

As Husfelt tried to reason with the shooter, he aimed the gun and fired towards the group.
Several news outlets are reporting that the gunman aimed directly at Husfelt and missed but video captured from a live internet screening of the meeting tells a different story. The video shows Duke slowly raising his arm and taking aim at the school superintendent. However, the actual shot hits the top of the desk after Duke lowers his aim slightly. The board members all duck under the podium at this point in time and Duke fires a second shot into the base of the podium. Gunfire is then heard off-camera and Duke spins around yelling "Ow". He then fires two rapid shots towards the source of the gunfire, later identified as Mike Jones, the school board's security chief. Jones fired again and Duke went down, having been shot in the knee. According to police, Duke then took his own life. The officially-released video ends before the suicide.
Clay Duke had an existing conviction for shooting in a 1999 confrontation with an ex-girlfriend. According to reports, Duke had stalked the woman for six months, then confronted her in front of her apartment building wearing a mask and carrying two weapons. As the woman tried to drive away, Duke shot out one of the rear tires.
The police investigation will continue today and an official police statement is expected this afternoon. There is no word yet if the school board will release a statement about the shooting.

Herb Dean the ref, the fighters DON’T touch gloves and here we go! Koscheck on the inside, St. Pierre tries a kick but misses. Then he charges him and takes him down at 20 seconds! Koscheck wall-walks up and they go back to the middle. A jab from GSP, Koscheck backs off for a second then comes back. GSP lands another jab, Koscheck bleeding under his right eye. St. Pierre goes for a takedown, but Koscheck avoids. In the middle, another stiff jab from St. Pierre. Koscheck swings a right and I feel the breeze from here. Another jab from GSP, then a lick. Oh! GSP lands a wicked right, and Koscheck feels that one! Inside kick, then a jab from GSP. A very technical battle from St. Pierre tonight. Koscheck slips out of a grapple quickly, and GSP punishes him with a jab on the nose. Koscheck’s eyes water but he charges him and backs him to the cage, trying to take him down. He has St. Pierre’s knee…he finally gets it! 10 seconds to go, GSP in full guard. Round over.
Koscheck’s right eye is bad, swollen shut. St. Pierre is naturally using his left side more, and Koscheck is already at the disadvantage here. A superman jab from GSP. St. Pierre is putting his weight on his haunches more, putting more power in his jabs, he senses Koscheck is in trouble. He lands more jabs on the eye. A leg kick, Koscheck is not answering that much. A few jabs but they don’t land. St. Pierre starts to taunt Koscheck a little bit, dropping his hands. When Koscheck comes in, he’s ready and nails him. Another superman punch by GSP. Koscheck tries his right and St. Pierre avoids it. St. Pierre tags him with a jab again and rocks him, then two more! Koscheck is taking a beating! Koscheck lands a hard uppercut in a combo. He’s still in the fight! St. Pierre lands another double jab. Round over.
St. Pierre comes out with a jab, then a kick. Koscheck hesitating too much, and St. Pierre taking full advantage. Koscheck tries, as his corner is hollering at him. They clinch up on the fence, battling for control and a takedown. St. Pierre drops down a little, then back to putting knees into Koscheck. They split and St. Pierre gives him some more jabs. Koscheck tries to push forward but they tie up. Then separate, St. Pierre landing another outside leg kick followed by a jab. Koscheck tries a head kick, misses by a mile. Then he checks the clock. Koscheck tries to charge and St. Pierre steps aside, lets him stumble across the mat. More jabs from GSP. Round over.
Koscheck is far less cocky now as the medical staff checks his eye. Koscheck wants to continue, and they let him. St. Pierre comes out with some brutal leg kicks, both sides and then charges and takes him down. Koscheck gets back up, but St. Pierre hangs onto his back and takes him down again. Koscheck fights his way back up, and St. Pierre knees him in his right eye! They’re on the fence, tied up. The ref breaks them up. St. Pierre’s corner told him to circle and jab, circle and jab. That’s what he’s doing, plus some leg kicks. Koscheck lands a jab but pulls away quick. St. Pierre kicks and Koscheck counters. They trade punches again and Koscheck goes down to one knee. St. Pierre is putting on a clinic! Koscheck’s foot seems to be hurt. Koscheck connects with a hook. St. Pierre answers with an inside leg kick and two jabs. Another double jab from St. Pierre.

This oughta get the blogosphere chatting about Miley Cyrus again.
TMZ.com has gotten it’s Hot Little Hands on cellphone video footage of the scandal-prone singer-actress smoking a legal substance out of a bong, cursing, and laughing uncontrollably while a friend records the whole scene.
Oh Miley, you make it so easy to make fun of you!
Miles turned 18 just last month, but she’s already five minutes away from a sex tape and her first trip to rehab. In the video obtained by TMZ, Cyrus is taped “tripping” at a belated birthday party at her Los Angeles home just five days after her 18th birthday. She can be seen smoking the herb salvia through a bong. Salvia, which has psychedelic qualities, is legal in California. It is often compared to the effects which a user gets from LSD. LSD, however, is man-made, whereas salvia, like marijuana, grows naturally. Both drugs contain salvinorin A.
“I’m having a little bit of a bad trip,” Cyrus says before lying down and then questions a male at the party if he’s her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth. “Oh my God, he looks like so much like Liam,” she says, before breaking into a laughing fit. “Is that me tripping? He doesn’t look like Liam at all?”
Miley then breaks into an impromptu rap, imitating Nicki Minaj’s verses on the Trey Songz collaboration, “Bottoms Up.”
Dis bitch…How dare she drag the Harajuku Barbie into this!
The footage is believed to have been leaked by one of the starlet’s pals.
The former Hannah Montana star’s “honorary godmother” Dolly Parton recently admitted that she;s worried about people influencing the teenage star’s behavior more than ever now that her parents, Billy Ray and Tish, are divorcing.
“I think she’s just in a crosswind trying to overcome the ‘Hannah Montana’ little girl and trying to become a young woman. I don’t know if she’s surrounded by people that are helping her to not make the wise decisions…”
We know that this probably became an age-old question after her upteenth inappropriate picture scandal, but “What the Hell Happened to Miley Cyrus?!”
Once a cute Disney star with a famous dad, Miley is now a sexually charged vamp has completely transformed herself in a few short years. From accusations of racism to inappropriate lapdances and even more inappropriate clothing, Miley has gone the way of Britney Spears — and it could get worse.

The second season of the marriage-reality show on Imagine TV ended on March 6. Cricketers Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh, reportedly, had been approached for the show’s next season, but neither found the idea of a ‘public’ wedding exciting. Now, the buzz is that Kamal Rashid Khan (of Bigg Boss 3 and Deshdrohi ‘fame’), item dancer Sambhavna Seth and cricketer S Sreesanth are in next in line.
Fazila Allana of SOL, the production house that anchors the show, insists that no one even has the cricketers’ numbers. “We still have to discuss our options, so I wonder how Sambhavana Seth, KRK, Sreesanth, Dhoni and Yuvraj even came into the picture. In fact, we are yet to decide whether it will require the search for a groom or a bride.”
However, she admits that the possibility of approaching a dashing young cricketer is high since there are “only three religions in India — politics, Bollywood and cricket”
According to Shailaja Kejriwal of Imagine TV, the channel is still recovering from the Mahajan wedding. “Ideally, there should be a gap of six months between two seasons. But at the rate the names are being thrown up, the media will be conducting the Swayamvar within two months,” she smiles.
Though she does dismiss the idea of a cricketer being approached, pointing out that they are all busy with the IPL season: “We need an entertainer on the show, but we haven’t decided yet,” Allana agrees: “Both Rakhi (Sawant)and Rahul (Mahajan) were colourful personalities, that’s a prerequisite for such content.” After two seasons, the show is expected to move out of Fatehgarh Palace in Udaipur to a new location.

According to the report, family and friends close to the Queen of Soul are "very concerned," but say she is doing "okay." Family expressed hopes to FOX that fans of Aretha, 68, will send prayers and good thoughts.
In a post at PopCrunch, a National Enquirer story (not available online) is cited saying Franklin's cancer is pancreatic. The same report notes sources saying Aretha has less than a year to live.
"Though the Enquirer is known for its often-outlandish take on unbiased journalism," PopCrunch writes, "it should be noted that the publication was the first in the world to report Patrick Swayze and Michael Landon's battles with pancreatic cancer, a disease that has a less than 10 percent survival rate and ultimately killed both actors. They also blew the lid off Christina Applegate's breast cancer scare in 2008."
FOX 2 in Detroit was unable to confirm the specific type of cancer. Franklin underwent a "highly successful" surgery last week, though the cause was not revealed.
"God is still in control," Aretha's post-surgery statement read. "I had superb doctors and nurses whom were blessed by all the prayers of the city and the country."
News of Franklin's unspecified operation came a month after she announced the cancellation of all concert dates and personal appearances through May on the order of her doctors. That announcement came after Franklin's brief visit to a Detroit hospital -- no details were given about her condition at the time.
It's been a difficult several months for Franklin; her adult son, Eddie, was beaten by three men at a Detroit gas station in September. A month earlier, she broke ribs in a fall, causing her to miss two free concerts in New York.
Aretha Franklin, born in Memphis and raised in Detroit, is the singer of hits like 'Respect,' 'Chain of Fools,' and '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.'

This was the shocking moment when a stunt went horribly wrong in front of millions of TV viewers.
Student Samuel Koch was trying to jump over a series of moving cars while wearing 'kangaroo' spring stilts when he got caught by the fourth vehicle - driven by his father - and fell.
As he lay motionless on the floor, distraught Wetten, dass? host Thomas Gottschalk called for a doctor and the cameras panned away from the stage
The 23-year-old was conscious and treated for a number of minutes before being strapped to a spinal board and taken to hospital.
Last night he was operated on at the University Hospital in Dusseldorf, but there was no news on his condition.
Wetten, dass? (Bet it?) features stunts by members of the public and is one of the most watched shows in Europe.
Koch had claimed he could leap five cars within four minutes in his spring-propelled stilts.
After the accident, TV chiefs showed repeats of musical acts which had previously appeared on the show for 25 minutes before finally cancelling the programme.
Take That and American teenage star Justin Bieber had been due to perform.
Gottschalk announced:'We will here and now break off the programme. Anything else would be wrong. We feel responsible to not make jolly when we are not.'
When he had introduced the stunt, Gottschalk told the audience that he had been very worried watching rehearsals of Koch jumping over cars being driven towards him.
He had told magazine Der Spiegel: 'I have never been so scared that something would happen to this young man. I can only say, I hope all goes well.'
The magazine speculated that the stunts were becoming increasingly dangerous at least in part due to competition from the rival Das Supertalent show which goes out on a rival station at the same time.
Koch was jumping over successively bigger cars, and broke off the second jump, looking irritated and stressed, according to Der Spiegel.
He cleared the third but the fourth, which was being driven by his father, was too much and he caught himself on it somehow and crashed to the floor.
It is the first time in 29 years that the show has been cancelled.
Gottschalk said later:'It is the first time in my long, long career that such a thing has happened and we have carried out many dangerous stunts.
'I have always said that would be the worst thing for me, if something happened to one of my candidates in a live show. I regret enormously that this has now happened.'

Looking for the Adam Sandler Thanksgiving Song? Adam Sandler’s classic “Thanksgiving Song” was done while he was a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” in the 90s
Similar to his popular Hanukkah song, his “Thanksgiving Song pokes fun at the holiday with pop culture references that are often hilarious, but also a bit dated. (Trading Darryl Strawberry anyone?)
“The Thanksgiving Song” (also known as “Happy Thanksgiving”) was written by Sandler, Ian Maxtone-Graham and Robert Smigel. It was first performed during the Weekend Update segment of the season 18 episode of Saturday Night Live on November 21, 1992. The live performance was recorded at The Strand in Redondo Beach, California on July 25, 1993.

An actor who appeared on "Ugly Betty" was taken into custody in Brooklyn this morning for allegedly killing his mother with a 3-foot long samurai sword while screaming biblical passages.
According to the police, the suspect -- Michael Brea -- sliced his mother's head off during the attack.
When cops arrived to the scene around 2:20 AM, officers say Brea was clutching the bible. Cops ultimately had to use a taser to subdue the actor. Brea was taken to a nearby hospital for a psychiatric evaluation with a police escort.
Police claim the scene was "extremely bloody."
A neighbor told WPIX 11, "I hear the brother chasing her [his mother] through the house and he's just saying a bunch of [Bible] passages like, 'Repent, Repent, Repent.'"
The neighbor continued, "I heard him chasing her through the house and I hear a loud scream and so I have my father call the cops, call 911."
Brea has not been formally arrested or charged yet.
UPDATE: We're told Brea will be turned over to the NYPD once his psychiatric evaluation is complete.

The death toll from a stampede at a Cambodian festival has risen to 345, the country's official news agency said Tuesday.
In addition to the deaths, another 391 people were injured at the annual Water Festival in the capital city of Phnom Penh on Monday, the AKP news agency said.

Cambodia has declared Thursday a national day of mourning for those who died in the crush, AKP reported. The country has also set up a commission to look into the incident.
On Tuesday, the government said it will help with the transport of the bodies of those who died and pay 5 million riel ($1,230) to the family of each of the deceased.
The three-day festival, which began Saturday, is held each November near the palace to honor a victory by Cambodian naval forces during the 12th-century reign of King Jayvarman VII, according to the country's tourism website.
During the festival, which includes boat races, participants pray for a good rice harvest, enough rain and celebrate the full moon, the site says.
Visalsok Nou, a Cambodian Embassy official in Washington, said more than 4 million people were attending the Water Festival when the stampede occurred.
The municipal police chief said that the stampede, which began around 10 p.m. (10 a.m. ET), likely occurred because a suspension bridge packed with people began to sway, creating panic, said Philip Bader, a news editor with the Phnom Penh Post newspaper.
Steve Finch, a journalist with the newspaper, said police began firing water cannons onto a bridge to an island in the center of a river in an effort to get them to continue moving across the bridge.
"That just caused complete and utter panic," he told CNN in a telephone interview.
He said a number of people lost consciousness and fell into the water,
The latest set of Google Trends includes the keywords North Korea Bombs South Korea, which would seem to imply the two nations are at war. What happened was that, for reasons not yet known, North Korea sent an estimated 200 bombs at a South Korean island in what is called The Yellow Sea.
South Korea has "returned fire and scrambled fighter jets in response"
What is known, according to CNN, is still a mystery, other than the fact that the island of 1,500 people was it, 14 were injured and one killed.

Wearing a leather bikini top, underage pop star Miley Cyrus proved she can't be tamed ... by getting kissed on by some guy at her post-AMAs/pre-18th birthday party at Trousdale at around 2AM this morning.
The mystery dude sprawled on top of Miley may be her rumored new boyfriend, Nickelodeon star Avan Jogia ... but it's pretty hard to tell for sure.
Miley officially turns 18 on Tuesday.
After the Tennessee Titans lost in overtime to the Washington Redskins, Titans Quarterback, Vince Young had an altercation with coach Jeff Fischer and threw his jersey and shoulder pads into the stands. Reports say Young was upset that Fischer pulled him from the game after he suffered a thumb injury.
The Tennessian reported that during the post game team meeting Young was cursing under his breath when Fischer asked him to be quiet. Young then left and Fischer told him not to run out on his teammates to which Young replied:
I’m not running out on my teammates, I’m running out on you
There are reports that Vince Young got into a shoving match with Titans’ safety, Michael Griffin, who chased Young in his underwear and asked Vince to return to the team.
The Richard Seymour punch did little to help the Raiders yesterday. In fact, the Richard Seymour punch could hurt the Raiders more down the line if he faces additional punishment. The incident symbolized Oakland's
frustration, as they had a chance to prove their surprise 5-4 record was truly for real. Yet against an established Super Bowl contender in Pittsburgh, they were manhandled in a 35-3 loss. The frustration boiled over as early as the second quarter, as Seymour threw a punch at Ben Roethlisberger after a back-breaking touchdown.
The Steelers had gone up 14-3 by the late second quarter, but the game was still somewhat in range. Yet, after Roethlisberger threw another touchdown to put them up 21-3, the outcome seemed all but decided by then.
At that point, the punch was thrown, after he and Roethlisberger got into it following the touchdown. The Raiders' defensive end said that Roethlisberger "ran up on me" as he did appear to say something before getting punched.
Seymour was quickly ejected, leaving the Raiders even more shorthanded the rest of the way. Their 35-3 defeat brought harsh reality onto one of the NFL's most surprising starts. The talk of a Raiders revival was halted for a week, as they lost first place in the AFC West to the Chiefs.
The aftermath of Seymour's hit should bring a heavy fine, at the least. But the calls for his suspension have begun, particularly from the Steelers' James Harrison. All year, Harrison has been in trouble for hard hits, so therefore, he stated that the NFL should be much harder on someone who threw an actual punch.
In some circles, Seymour isn't getting laid into as hard because he punched Roethlisberger. The Steelers' quarterback is still unpopular for his off-field legal problems, so those who still hate him may have been pleased. In any case, no one knows yet what Roethlisberger said to set Seymour off, if anything.
It should be a day or two before punishment for the punch comes down from Roger Goodell. For the moment, the Raiders are still counting on him to play against Miami next week.
At the least, his meltdown wasn't the only one from yesterday, after Vince Young acted out in Tennessee. However, Young didn't punch anyone on or off the field, and isn't expected
to play the rest of the year anyway.

Detroit is one of America’s most-known cities for a number of reasons, some extremely positive and others its residents would likely prefer to forget. Tomorrow evening, the former will undoubtedly ring true as the UFC prepares to fire up its cameras to present a card ripe with talent and headlined by a quartet of former champions meeting in the Octagon.

Amy-Erin Blakely is suing her former employer, the Devereux Foundation, for allegedly firing her in 2009 after she filed two complaints about gender discrimination. Blakely claims that the comments about the size of her breasts started in 2003, but worsened in 2008. She was told that her chest was distracting for others and that she was too sensual to be promoted.
With attorney Gloria Allred at her side, Blakely said, "No woman should ever be subjected to such sexist and derogatory remarks," and explained to L.A.'s Fox News, "It made me feel ashamed." She noted that she always dressed professionally for her job at the nonprofit provider of children's mental health services.
The Erin Barry and Tony Parker cheating scandal has many wondering if there are other women Tony Parker cheated on Eva Longoria with.
Tony Parker’s cheating with Erin Barry, San Antonio Spurs’ Brent Barry’s wife, resulted in Eva Longoria’s divorce from Parker – could Brent Barry’s wife be the only other woman involved?
Eva Longoria told BFF Mario Lopez some of the details, including the fact that Tony Parker had cheated earlier in their marriage. You know how those repeat cheaters operate, so maybe other women will come forward too.
The Erin Barry and Tony Parker affair was reportedly just an exchange of text messages… innocent, right? Well, the content of those text messages is yet to be revealed and they exchanged hundreds of them! There’s got to be something racy in there.
What other women has Tony Parker cheated on Eva Longoria with? There was that French model, French model Alexandra Paressant, a few of years back, but later that rumor was shot down.
Now we’re wondering if there are others… will other women come forward and admit to having affairs with Tony Parker, as in the case of Tiger Woods, where many women admitted to screwing around with him?

Rightly so, many news sites this morning are in uproar about the indignity Messy Mya must suffer, even in death, because heartless individuals have their own sensationalist agendas. By publishing those photos they have not only trivialised his death but also caused more pain for his family.
It is thought that the first pictures were linked on Twitter and were subsequently “retweeted” countless times. Twitter have since deleted the images from people’s home pages.
The internet is fairly well policed these days, unlike the early days when almost any information was available, US governors wish to see an even bigger increase in censorship through the Internet Blacklist bill. Citizens and voters are campaigning against the bill but with events like the death of Messy Mya it’s hard to argue against further censorship.
Kate Middleton’s engagement ring from Prince William is no doubt absolutely breathtaking. Considering that she’s about to become a princess, I’d say that Kate Middleton is probably sporting one honker of a diamond as far as her engagement ring goes.
There are pictures everywhere of Kate Middleton in a bikini in Ibiza, so when will a shot of her engagement ring be released?
We can’t help but wonder when we will finally see Kate’s engagement ring, and what it will look like!
Kate Middleton’s engagement ring is probably something traditional, and probably has some sort of family connection, whether it be from her side or Prince William’s Royal Family.
Princess Diana’s engagement ring featured 14 diamonds around a sapphire, and was supposedly similar to her mother’s ring. Queen Elizabeth’s engagement ring was made from the diamonds that belonged to Prince Philip’s mother.
Will Kate Middleton’s engagement ring possibly feature diamonds worn by Princess Diana?
Guess we’ll have to wait until more details are released!
*UPDATE* – It was just confirmed that Kate Middleton’s engagement ring is the ring that belonged to Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana.
Dubbed ‘Waity Katie’ by the British press, Kate dated Britain’s heir to the throne for 8-years before he finally popped the question.
William is said to have proposed to Kate last month while the couple was on holiday in Kenya, though we have no word on whether she was wearing a bikini at the time.
However, we do know that before popping the question to his bride-to-be, William kept it traditional and asked Kate’s father, Michael, for her hand in marriage.
The couple is said to wed in mid 2011 in London, England.
Previously, when a friend remarked to Kate that she was “lucky” to be going out with the Prince, Kate responded, “He’s lucky to be going out with me.”
From the looks of these bikini pictures, we’d have to agree. In fact, Kate first caught William’s eye while modeling a sheer dress over a black bikini at a charity fashion show while they attended St. Andrew’s University.

Marie Osmond plastic surgery: The iconic vocalist’s appearance on today’s Oprah show to discuss her son’s suicide earlier this year has raised questions in the mind of many viewers about whether or not the only singing Osmond sister has recently had plastic surgery.
At first look, the possibility of Marie Osmond plastic surgery didn’t come to mind. Regarding her appearance, she looked beautiful, and more viewers were more focused on Osmond talking about the death of her son and the emotional journey she’s been through.
She does, however, look like maybe she’s had a bit of plastic surgery, most notably, on her very plump lips.
Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist, Dr. Paul S. Nassif, noted in 2009 that “Marie Osmond appears to have had a browlift, as her brows are arched up quite a bit. A facelift is a good possibility as well, and facial fillers and Botox are very likely as there are not many lines present on her face.”
Based on her appearance on Oprah, it looks like she has most likely had lip injections, but beyond that, it’s hard to say.
It may be the heavy makeup she was wearing that made people speculate about plastic surgery.
