Said the 2000 Puerto Rican Olympian today:

"I've been fighting for more than 24 years and as I continue my ascendant career, I want to be true to myself.

Adam Greenberg struck out on three pitches in his only at bat for the Miami Marlins last night. Yet for the 31-year-old, this was cause for celebration.

Seven years ago in his MLB debut, Greenberg was hit in the head by a pitch - the first, and only major league pitch he had faced until Tuesday night.

After years of recovering from a terrible concussion and vertigo, and toiling away in the minor leagues, he finally made it back to the show, if only for a day.

Lance Easley is making like Teresa Giudice.

The referee who ruled Golden Tate had simultaneous possession of a Russell Wilson Hail Mary Monday, giving the Seahawks a controversial 14-12 win over the Packers, is somehow standing by his call.

Even if it's more unpopular than Dina Lohan.

"I didn't do anything wrong," Easley tells TMZ, saying of the Packers defenders most believe intercepted the pass: "You have to not only have the ball but have either two feet or a body part on the ground, and that never happened."

"F-ck it NFL.. Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs."

Move over, Baltimore. We have a feeling the Bullsh!t chants were the loudest they've ever been across every bar in Green Bay last night.

The Packers were leading the Seattle Seahawks 12-7 with mere seconds remaining when Russell Wilson hoisted a prayer into the corner of the endzone.

And it was apparently answered by the replacement referees, who inexplicably awarded Golden Tate a game-winning touchdown reception, despite clear evidence that Green Bay cornerback M.D. Jennings actually came up with the ball first. See for yourself:
