You Might Want to Pick Woody Harrelson For Your Adult Kickball Team.

Woody-Harrelson Hey, I'm not trying to jock up the joint over here. This is a pop culture website, not a sports blog. So I'll spare you the details about why you should be watching the World Cup even if you're not a sports fan (sanctioned daytime drinking and several shirtless menfolk, for starters). But I wouldn't be your friend if I didn't show you this pop culture/sports crossover moment of glory, surprisingly courtesy of a star of film and television. Seriously, in terms of sports, this is, like, better than Rudy.

Tiger Woods To Talk Friday: I Wonder If He'll Mention that Sex Thing

Tiger Woods Masters Win First let me say, I was a Tiger fan.  I was at the '97 Masters when he rolled to a record-breaking victory. I even got to high-five him. I'm sure he remembers it.  It happened during the day preceding the tournament, so it's possible I gave him the lucky edge he needed. It was really our victory. That's why I say to my partner with all respect in the world, shut the fuck up, Tiger. I don't care.

Did Evander Holyfield Hit His Wife?

Evander_holyfield All domestic violence is terrible. All of it. So why am I always more offended when a boxer is charged with hitting his spouse?

Oh, right. Because they are trained fighters. They punch other large men for a living.

This is why I am mortified that Evander Holyfield's wife has filed a protective order against him.

Nancy-Kerrigan We already knew Nancy's brother had been arrested for assaulting Nancy's father, and that Nancy's father had died as a result of that assault, but know his death has been ruled a homicide.  I would expect those charges to be amened real soon.  The District Attorney's statement is after the jump.

To enter such an arena unprepared is to risk public humiliation — which is why the kind and gentle folk of MamaPop have committed themselves to preparing you for the big event with the following primer on the finest in pigskin cinema.
