Honestly, we never get tired of Mike Piazza gay rumors. No, seriously. We love them. The newest one, as "printed" by our twisted sister Gawker, is that Mets catcher Mike Piazza and local weatherman Sam Champion are building a place together on the Jersey Shore.

The Piazza Is Gay rumor is as old as his mustache was once long, including the famous "I like to do it with chicks" Piazza press conference a few years ago. This isn't even the first time we've heard the Sam Champion rumor: In 2002, an email circulated that Champion had filed domestic abuse charges against Piazza. We never believe any of it anymore, because there has just been so much. We're gonna have to see Piazza getting a reach-around from Tom Seaver before we are convinced ... and probably not even then.

Todd Zeile, however ...
