Elisha Cuthbert already knows a thing about Happy Endings quotes. Now she's even more well-versed on the subject in real life as well as TV.

The actress is engaged to Dion Phaneuf of the Toronto Maple Leafs!

Cuthbert, 29, announced on Twitter that she's "Happily, happily, happily, happily engaged! This has been the most amazing weekend ever."

The couple, who began dating way back in May 2008, celebrated at New Glasgow Lobster in Prince Edward Island, Canada, last night.

"Last night we had the privilege of hosting a surprise engagement party for Dion Phaneuf and Elisha Cuthbert," the restaurant tweeted.

"Congrats to them both."

Announcing their engagement at the PEI venue was "a nice surprise for all their guests ... Congrats to them both and LOVE the ring!"

Phaneuf, 27, "never said it was for an engagement party," a source says. "They invited 40 friends and family to celebrate at the restaurant."

"Elisha looked very happy and pleased. She was showing off her ring to her family and the wait staff," the source at the restaurant adds.

"Dion and Elisha both got up an gave a speech and thanked everyone for being there and celebrating this exciting time with them."

Cuthbert previously dated NHL player Sean Avery, who was suspended for saying Phaneuf was enjoying his sloppy seconds in 2008.

Congratulations to Elisha and Dion!

Kent State sophomore linebacker Andre Parker showed great hands, speed and agility in scooping up a fumbled punt return during his team's opener Thursday.

Just one problem: He did it all running the wrong direction.

After Kent State punted to visiting Towson and a member of the return team touched the pigskin, Parker quickly grabbed the live ball and took off with it.

Instead of taking it to the house for an easy touchdown, though, he sprinted back toward his own end zone, eluding and stiff-arming tacklers in the process.

He made it 58 yards before being brought down ... which is also hilarious, since Towson would've earned a safety by letting Parker score on his own team.

In any event, Parker realized his gaffe after the fact, and his reaction was priceless. Fortunately for him, Kent State coasted to an easy 41-21 win.

Four-time Grand Slam tennis champ Maria Sharapova is no longer engaged to professional basketball player Sasha Vujacic, she revealed yesterday.

Speaking after a third-round victory Friday, Maria was asked about the relationship and said that they've split up, "since the end of spring, actually."

"It was obviously a challenging decision, you know, from both of our ends."

"I was waiting for someone to actually ask me that question," the 25-year-old Russian beauty added. "I have never really been the person to announce things."

"I never announced when we were even together or never announced we were engaged. I never have in any of my previous relationships, as well."

"It was a really nice period of time for both of us, but our career schedules just made it extremely difficult ... we still have a tremendous amount of respect for each other."

Word of their engagement came in October 2010, when Vujacic proposed on the one-year anniversary of their first meeting at a friend's barbecue.

The Slovenian guard was a first-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2004, winning two championships with them until being traded in 2010.

Sasha then one played season with the New Jersey Nets as a teammate of Kris Humphries before leaving the NBA to play professionally in Turkey.

Michael Jackson's kids Paris, Prince and Blanket threw out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game in Gary, Ind., along with MJ's sister La Toya.

The King of Pop's three children made the trip to their father's hometown on Thursday to celebrate what would have been Michael Jackson's 54th birthday.

Prince Michael, 15, Blanket, 10, and Paris Jackson, 14, each took the mound to kick off the Gary Southshore Railcats baseball game. Check it out:

"We're here in Gary, and it's a new experience for us. People are so nice here," Prince said. "It's amazing how much he was respected and loved."

Everywhere they go, the three kids inspire nothing but the same feelings as people see how well-adjusted and nice they are - despite all they've been through.

MJ would be proud.

As if things couldn't get any worse for Chad Johnson, the former NFL star learned this week that he's been dumped in Madden '13 as well as in real life.

Chad, who was cut by the Miami Dolphins after his arrest for domestic battery this month, was unable to find his likeness on the popular video game.

"That awkward moment when you realize you're not on Madden13 and you have to create yourself," @Ochocinco tweeted to his 3.7 million followers.

Chad Johnson Madden

The former Ochocinco actually is on the game, just in the free agent pool and not on the Miami roster. Anyone interested in his services? [crickets]

Chad's journey to free agency began with his alleged head-butting of Evelyn Lozada during an epic fight with his wife over a receipt for condoms.

The star of VH1's Basketball Wives has filed for divorce, while the network yanked their spinoff show Ev & Ocho, leaving Chad unemployed.

Plenty of time for Madden '13 at least. Mike Sims-Walker might be better deal at that price, Chad ... smaller cap hit and chance of being arrested.

Andy Roddick announced this afternoon at a press conference that he will retire from professional tennis after this year's U.S. Open, which is currently underway in New York City.

Asked why he's calling it quits, Roddick simply pointed to a gallery of Brooklyn Decker photos and reminded reporters that stepping away will allow him to spend more time with his wife.

Just kidding.

Andy Roddick Return

"It's a matter of how I feel, and if I feel I can compete at the highest level," he actually said of his decision.

Roddick owns 32 career titles and won the U.S. Open in 2003 for his only major title. He's currently ranked No. 22 in the world.

The American star has banked $20 million in career prize money and enjoys a host of endorsements. He has also battled knee, ankle, shoulder and back injuries in recent years.

And, oh, did we mention he's married to Brooklyn Decker? Hard to blame the guy for walking away.

The 30-year old plays Bernard Tomic in the second round on Friday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Let's all cheer him on during this final run.

Penn State University is doing all it can to separate itself from the Jerry Sandusky scandal, which has sent that pedophile to jail, resulted in unprecedented sanctions against the football team and led to new uniforms for the players.

How will the fans feel the effects of this sordid situation?

Penn State announced this week that it has outlawed the playing of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" at home football games, a single used as a traditional sing-a-long on campus for many years.

Track lyrics, as heard below, include the line "touching me, touching you," and... well... we don't need to explain why some might see that as inappropriate now, do we?

What do you think of this decision? Should Penn State ban the song?

In London this month, Ryan Lochte made serious waves in the pool. And he may do so again as ABC's next Bachelor.

But the star athlete's sister made waves of a very different kind during an interview on a Maryland radio station this week, dropping racial epithet after racial epithet against the Chinese.

"China was chinked out," she said on a show titled Closing Time. "Everything. Chinks. There was only chinks everywhere... You know how stereotypically they always want to take pictures, they take pictures of everything -- chink chink ... is that where it comes from?"

The host tried to jump in and suggested Megan change her word choice, but this only served to inspire more ridicule.

"'Chink'?" Megan asked. "But like it fits them 'cause they're like 'chink' [pantomines]."

Lochte concluded the rant by lumping Japanese and Chinese citizen together, saying: "They're whatever we want them to be, they're Asian."

Does that mean Megan Lochte can be whatever we want her to be? Have at it, readers!

Lance Armstrong will be banned from cycling and stripped of his seven Tour de France titles by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, the organization said in a stunning announcement last night.

The punishment stems from drug charges brought against the world famous cyclist that he is declining to fight.

"There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say, 'Enough is enough.' For me, that time is now," Armstrong said in a statement sent to The Associated Press, referring to the USADA's investigation an "unconstitutional witch hunt."

Lance Armstrong Signs

After refusing to follow though with an arbitration process that could officially clear his name, Armstrong added:

"I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999. The toll this has taken on my family and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today -- finished with this nonsense."

Tony Farmer - an 18-year old rising senior at Garfield Heights High School in Ohio who was ranked as one of the top 100 high school basketball recruits in the country - was sentenced to three years in prison on Tuesday for kidnapping and felonious assault.

Upon hearing the news, Farmer collapsed to the floor out of shock and agony. See for yourself here:

The star athlete expected to receive probation from Judge Pamela Barker because so many friends and family members spoke out on his behalf.

Even Andrea Lane, the ex-girlfriend who Farmer attacked last April, asked for a lenient sentence.

"I know he was a good person," she told the judge. "I hope he still is."
