Blown Call on Slide Lets Mets Escape Sweep

What would have been a four game sweep over the Mets by the San Francisco Giants was blown by a missed call by home plate umpire Phil Cuzzi.

A critical play at home was shown by television replays to be a clear call that should have given the Giants the game but instead, the game was handed to the Mets.

If called properly that would have been Met’s closer Francisco Rodriguez’s fifth blown save and the fourth straight loss to the Giants! Honestly, for saving Rodriguez from the embarrassment and the Mets from that bad of a sweep, who could blame the ump? Sometimes your heart just reaches out for the underdog.

After 10 innings, the Mets were more than happy to take their 4-3 victory over the Giants.

Waitress Turned BabyMama in a One Night Stand with Ronaldo

Story has it that Cristiano Ronaldo’s charm got him into quite a bit of trouble on is last visit to LA. His one night stand with an unnamed American waitress turned the soccer hottie to a soccer daddy.

After using his foreigner routine of pretending to know little English to lure the waitress into bed, and with absolutely no plans of ever seeing her again, it was safe to say that this was quite the bump is Ronaldo’s slick plan.

But don’t worry Ronaldo fans, Crissy has given his baby momma £10million to keep her mouth shut and plans on raising the baby by himself. In fact, he doesn’t even want to tell Ronaldo Jr. who his mother is until he turns 18! Isn’t he just the sweetest?

U2 Top Forbes 2010 Music Rich List

Forbes released its list of top paid musicians for 2010 and gotta say, quite a few surprises there. U2 came in number one with $130 million earned, but the interesting part is that the Top 5 was dominated by artists of the 70’s and 80’s. AC/DC came in second with $114 million and fourth place was taken by Bruce Springsteen with $68.7 million.

Only one new artist was able to hit the Top 10 and it was none other than, you guessed it . . . Lady Gaga! Surely no shock to anyone but what was rather noteworthy is that Beyonce Knowles hit the list a full 3 spots and $20 million ahead of hubby Jay-Z. Wonder how Hova feels about that one?

Chris Brown Breaks Down Crying During MJ Tribute

Chris Brown cried through much of his Michael Jackson tribute last night at the 2010 BET Awards. He honored the King of Pop by doing a dancing tribute that MJ would’ve loved to see himself. However, as he was about to sing “Man In The Mirror” he couldn’t even get through it because he was crying so hard.

It honestly was a very emotional moment for everyone even watching the Awards. But one can’t help to question, was Brown crying because the MJ death anniversary was getting to him, or was it because of something within himself. I mean the song that he struggled to get through WAS “Man In The Mirror” hmmm…

U.S. Coach Left Feeling as if Job Is Undone

Bob Bradley felt that after 120 minutes he was truly not done coaching despite his teams 2-1 loss to Ghana in the Round of 16 on the 2010 World Cup.

Nothing about the results of this game really shocked Bradley though. His team was extremely spirited throughout the game, but unfortunately didn’t have what it took to overcome the only African team left in the Cup, who were really boosted by their enthusiastic crowd.

Bradley is already looking to the future of the American team. We definitely look forward to seeing what America has in store the next time around.

Dwyane Wade — Officially Divorced

Ladies, Dwyane Wade is finally a single man. A Chicago judge has ruled that his troubled 8-year marriage to high school sweetheart Siohvaughn Wade is officially over. 

But the drama hasn’t ended yet, because the two still have to work out several key issues including custody of the couple’s two children and the division of marital assets.

 Wade states that, “I’m very relieved that the judge granted my divorce today … this has been a long process and I hope we can all move forward.” Let’s hope, Dwyane you can move forward right over to me.

Peace Amanda Bynes!

Of all the young actresses announcing early “retirement” why Amanda  Bynes? Honestly I think we’re all on the same page with wishing to see plenty of other young actresses on this retirement list.

I personally think that Lindsay Lohan probably should decide whether she wants to commit to acting or retire sometime soon just like Ms. Bynes.

I wonder what the future will hold for Amanda…
