Jayson Werth plans make 2011 ‘a fart in the wind’ with an improved 2012

When Jayson Werth signed his seven-year, $126 million contract with the Nationals before the 2011 season, many believed he would go down as one of the most overpaid players in MLB history.

Was Bob Knight caught sleeping on the GameDay set? (Video)

Bob Knight is 71 years old. By most people’s definition, that is old. And we all know old people also need their sleep. So, by this conjecture, Bob Knight needs to sleep.

Khloe Kardashian says she cooks naked for Lamar Odom

Rumors have been swirling that Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian‘s marriage is going through a rough patch and perhaps, in familiar Kardashian fashion, even nearing “the end.” Khloe has denied any assertions that she and Odom are heading for splitsville.
