Victor Cruz of the New York Giants was surprised and touched to learn he was the hero of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victim Jack Pinto.

Pinto, who died Friday, used to wear Cruz's jersey during Giants games.

On Sunday, Cruz returned the favor in a way, writing Jack's name on his shoes for the team's game against the Falcons, who crushed New York 34-0.

Cruz was definitely a winner regardless of that result; after the game, he addressed the media and tried to make sense of the tragedy and his ties to it.

Last night marked Kate Middleton's first public appearance since being hospitalized with morning sickness this month - and it was a TV appearance at that!

The glowing Duchess of Cambridge, in a green Alexander McQueen dress, was on hand to give out awards at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony.

No real sign of a baby bump yet from Kate, but her very appearance is a hopeful sign that the ailing, expecting 30-year-old is getting better in recent days.

It also marked her first appearance since the death of Jacintha Saldanha.

Another day, another racially charged story from the world of sports.

Not long after Caroline Wozniacki's Serena Williams impression drew charges of racism, Rob Parker of ESPN has called out Robert Griffin III.

Robert Griffin III Picture

The newspaper columnist, who is African-American, appeared on First Take this morning and said of the Redskins star rookie quarterback:

“Is he a brother, or is he a cornball brother? He's not real. Okay, he's black, he kind of does the thing, but he's not really down with the cause."

"He's not one of us. He's kind of black, but he's not really, like, the guy you want to hang out with because he's off to something else."

A couple of chicks from Bad Girls Club fighting at a strip club?

Like, full-on boxing in booty shorts and oversized gloves?

You're welcome.

Camilla Poindexter of Season 8 (yes, it's been on that long) absolutely PUNISHED Natalie Nunn (Season 4) for a boxing match at the Sin City strip club in L.A..

We refuse to call it "celebrity" boxing, even if it was billed as such.

Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin, ESPN radio hosts based in Washington, D.C., have been suspended for derogatory comments made in a rant about transgender basketball player Gabrielle Ludwig.

Ludwig plays basketball for Mission College and was born Robert Ludwig, a fact Czaban and Pollin couldn't get enough of.

"How does this work? You lose testicles and gain eligibility?" one host asks in the following video.

With Czaban and Pollin constantly referring to Ludwig as "it," they continued:

One year after shocking the world with its signing of Albert Pujols, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have done it again.

During a tennis exhibition in Brazil this week, Caroline Wozniacki impersonated Serena Williams, using towels to pad her chest and rear end.

Funny, right?

Not according to some critics, most notable Whoopi Goldberg.

Said Goldberg on The View yesterday:

"That visual is generally seen with a bone in their nose, and a short little skirt like she's got on. And that's why people see it as being somewhat racist, because it's an image that we have seen before.

"And I don't ever remember them making fun of any of the white tennis players... Why Serena? What is it about her? Is it her color? Is it the fact she's not 4 inches wide and weighs 6 ounces, and can beat all of their asses with her eyes closed?''

It's probably because Wozniacki and Serena are good friends, with the former visiting the latter at home this year when Williams was dealing with blood clot issues.

But... maybe not? You tell us: Is Wozniacki's impression racist?

NBA action. It's fantastically insane, 24/7/365.

Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson was ejected from Monday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers after getting into an unusual argument with a referee.

As Portland's J.J. Hickson swished the first of two free throws late in the third quarter, both Johnson and referee David Jones went to retrieve the ball.

After Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade dropped 26 points on 11-13 shooting last night in a 101-92 win over the Atlanta Hawks, teammate LeBron James was fired up.

So much so, he uncharacteristically called out one of Wade's loudest critics.

Bron and Bark

"It means Charles Barkley needs to shut up," James said in response to a question of what Wade's performance meant to the team and to the All-Star himself.
