Cuba Gooding Jr. Invites Linda Cohn To Rock Out With Her Cock Out

Cuba Gooding Jr. appeared on SportsCenter today to promote his new film Red Tails (which, as far as we can tell, is fully unrelated to sports) and performed some awkward impersonations, including one of Allen Iverson which ended in an aborted-too-late "rock out with your cock out!" We're pretty sure that's an… » 1/19/12 1:30pm 1/19/12 1:30pm

Linda Cohn Had Some Generational Struggles Tonight With Robert Griffin …

Robert Griffin III's nickname is RG3 because he's the third consecutive Robert Griffin in his family—hence the III.

A Slanted And Semi-Enchanted Evening With Linda Cohn

This photo was taken by Gawker photog Roger West who was assigned to photograph my big date in New York City with ESPN's Linda Cohn, who's doing press for her book, " Cohn Head: A No-Holds-Barred Account of Breaking Into the Boys' Club » 9/10/08 5:45pm 9/10/08 5:45pm". She's a classy lady and one who appreciated my attempts at wooing her: Flowers. A…
