The NHL added a little wrinkle to its (very cool!) new All-Star Game structure. The four 3-on-3 squads representing each division will be coached by an actual NHL coach (Gerard Gallant, Lindy Ruff, Darryl Sutter, and Barry Trotz) as well as, uh, well, hmm, one of ... these guys above here?
We get many tips every day. (By the way, email us at email@example.com!) Some of these are dead ends; others are not. A few weeks ago, someone emailed us with a weird story involving pictures of nude celebrities that, without going into it in detail, sounded and sounds like total bullshit. But then there was today's…
Daniel McDonnell of the Irish Independent tweeted out this list of VVIPs and heads of state in attendance at yesterday's World Cup final:
We couldn't possibly run down all the dignitaries who appear in this bit, from tonight's first episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. We'll simply note surprise at Lindsay Lohan parting with $100 for anything that doesn't come in powder form, and Joan Rivers's return to NBC after being banned from the show…
We've all asked questions about exactly how the courtside seats on Madison Square Garden's Celebrity Row get doled out. Is there a ranking system that determines which celebrities get the best seats? Do those rich people even have to pay for their seats? Thankfully, The New York Times has provided some answers.
It's an all too common trope to declare that one specific moment somehow encapsulates a team's entire season, but this one specific moment somehow encapsulates the Lakers' entire season: Jack Nicholson, himself an aging star that provides less and less on return as he gets older, sarcastically waving goodbye and…
Canadian rocker Geddy Lee sat in some primo seats for a recent Blue Jays game, and the living testament to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame's illegitimacy appeared to enjoy himself—if spending a bit too much of the game checking out his text messages.
So Joe Buck, Dave Coulier, Darren Pang, and radio guy Kelly Chase got together for last night's Blues game. And you still think the Illuminati aren't real? Wake up, sheeple. [Twitter]
So what if Jay Cutler got injured and missed six games of the Bears' season, causing the team to miss the playoffs? He's more POTENT than he's ever been!
Kris Humphries's summer sideshow was entertaining but seemed ultimately irrelevant: his dalliances with Kim Kardashian and with reality TV were in the universe of entertainment and celebrity, not our sports universe. We'd get our jokes, E! gets their ratings, Humphries and the Kardashians make a quick buck, and we…
It was a little over a week ago that we told you that Bears QB Jay Cutler and television lady Kristin Cavallari had gotten engaged again, after Cutler dumped Cavallari over the summer. Kristin then denied new engagement. Egg on our faces, or so we thought.
Get psyched, everyone: Cut-Cav is back on for real. They're engaged again, per Life and Style magazine:
As opposed to the future ex-Mrs. Cutler, who is whichever C-lister the Bears QB will glom on to next in his never-ending quest to be a star (just playing football's not cutting it).
Here is a list of the non-hockey stars—"some of the biggest names in Hollywood"—the NHL will have on hand tonight for its Las Vegas awards ceremony (7 p.m., Versus): Jon Hamm, Jerry Bruckheimer, Kevin Smith, Jennifer Beals. OK, if not quite A-list, definitely a list. Unfortunately, they accompany repeat host Mohr…
As a young driver, they used to tell me: Always pick up hitchhikers. You never know when one of them will be the guy who scored Spider-Man: the Musical.
The 6'9" Lee and the 3'7" (probably) Snooki met up at a New York steakhouse, looking nothing so much like Master Blaster from Thunderdome. [Twitpic]
In sports, everyone is a winner—some people just win better than others. Like the movie-going public that was treated to a hilarious preview of "Grown Ups" last night. If only all that basketball hadn't been in the way.
The National Hockey League seems to be outright begging celebrities to attend their games, and they're not having a ton of luck. See, the NHL people feel that part of the reason that the NHL isn't huge in America is because of a lack of exposure. So they figure if we see George Clooney watching hockey, then we'll all…
