We have but one month before it's over. Why, Jennie? Your announcement Tuesday made us all break into a chorus of Crowded House. "Hey now, hey now, don't dream it's over."

And it's time to celebrate you.Begin Slideshow

Absolutely incredible. Great moments are set up by great drama, and you could not have asked for more with the U.S. national soccer team in Wednesday's FIFA World Cup game against Algeria. They had been robbed of a game winner against Slovenia. They had to win to get in. They had so many opportunities in the middle of the game that didn't happen. At the same time, they knew England was up on Slovenia, so there would be no advancing without a goal. That's what was in front of them. Then you add in the bigger picture of what it would mean ...
Sports stars and celebrities get to where they are in large part due to self confidence and an over-sized ego. We get that. But seriously, Hulk Hogan? You're going after Pebbles and Bam Bam?

We were robbed. That's how a nation of prepubescent boys and their hottie-craving dads felt last night watching "Dancing With the Stars". In the past years, the ABC show has thrown in an athlete to try to draw the males in to notice the rest of the attractive women doing the tango. This year, they gave us the ultimate mix of sports and hotness in one, Erin Andrews. Each week, we tuned in to see how she'd impress the judges. We marveled at the technical magnificence of her dances and clapped with every nailed step . Who am I kidding? We were watching to ...

Chris Dudley and 25 Famous Athlete Politicians

By Tim Wood On May - 19 - 2010
The guy previously known as being one of the worst free throw shooters and most disproportionately paid players in NBA history has cleared his first hurdle in an attempt to be a state governor. Chris Dudley made $40 million over a 16-year career that ended with the Trail Blazers in 2003.

The 25 Most Overrated Sports Hotties on the Web

By Tim Wood On May - 18 - 2010
I am a fan of a gorgeous woman. So please, understand where I'm coming from here. Every woman on the list you're about to peruse is hot. There's no doubting that. It's not like I'm throwing any of them out of bed. I just think there's a bunch of women athletes that are getting WAY too much love. What's my criteria? For some, it's that they're overexposed. Some don't do enough with their hotness and that bothers me -- take a sexy photo already, will ya? Yes, there's something to be said for leaving something to the imagination, but not when you're browsing the ...
The scandal has broken today involving recently-crowned Miss USA Rima Farik and the pole dancing she did during a Stripper 101 contest in 2007 for a Detroit radio station. I'm certainly no expert on taking crowns from pageant winners, but it seems to me that the lingerie photos sanctioned by the Miss USA folks are a little racier. Either way, it's a win-win for the viewer. With all this talk about poles, we figured we'd pit the newcomer against the reigning queen of photos with poles, Cal pole vaulter Allison Stokke. Who's hotter? Tough call. Let's put 'em through the ringer.Begin Slideshow
