New York Giants fan Joseph Armento was dismayed to learn that his favorite team did not keep star running back Brandon Jacobs this offseason.

The six-year-old then decided to do what he could to help.

Joseph sent a letter to Jacobs, enclosing his personal savings from his actual piggybank, totaling $3.36, in an effort to "help" the athlete, who signed as a free agent with the San Francisco 49ers in March, return to New York.

Jacobs Letter

"When he asked me why you were going to SF, I explained that the Giants did not have enough money to keep you," Joseph's mother, Julie, wrote. "Joseph is just learning to read/write so I will help you by translating his letter."

Her son's note to the football player adorably reads: "Dear Brandon Jacobs, So you could go to the Giants, here is my money. Love, Joe."

Jacobs signed a one-year deal with the 49ers that could pay up to $2 million; the Giants reportedly offered $1.5 million for his services.

Clearly "not having the money" is all relative, but the NFL star, 29, was so touched by the letter that he posted it to his Twitter account.

"I almost cried, I am still trying to hold it in," Jacobs, who won two Super Bowls, ran for 4,849 yards and scored 56 TDs in seven seasons with NY, Tweeted.

Charlie Sheen went freaking ballistic outside the Staples Center on Wednesday night after being kicked out of Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, or more accurately not allowed to come back inside the arena after leaving to go have a smoke.

A female, no-nonsense security guard would not budge when the volatile actor tried to get back inside, prompting Sheen to unload on her:

"You know what? F*%king blow my balls, alright, you f*%king asshole."

As pals tried in vain to keep him away from cameras, he said, "Have common sense and common courtesy gone in society? That was what I was trying to impress upon her."

The guard, who was simply abiding by Staples Center's no re-entry policy, told a celebrity news photographer she told Sheen to "F**k off."

Charlie left the stadium without ever getting back in, ending the evening on a sour note. Not that it was without fireworks beforehand.

On his way in, a fan screamed, "You ever done bath salts?" Charlie's response: "Would you ask me that at a f*%king dinner party you moron? Go f*%k yourself."

After another fan screamed, "Charlie, f*%k all the hos tonight!!!!" Sheen replied, "I thought your mother and sister weren't available."

Sheen claims he was never winning ... but with that zinger, we disagree.

Wade Davis, a former NFL defensive back for the Tennessee Titans, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks, recently admitted that he is gay.

Throughout his career, he struggled with the fact that he was a gay man in a profession where homosexuality was almost never discussed openly.

It took years after he left the NFL before he felt comfortable enough to publicly admit that he was gay, as Amy K. Nelson of SB Nation found out.

"There was a lot that stood out from our conversation; one part that didn't make the edit was his feelings about not only struggling with his identity as a gay man, but also his identity as a black man," Nelson recalled to Yahoo Sports.

"He would wear his clothes extra large, use patterns of speech that, to him, sounded like he spoke like many of his peers. He said that he became the best actor in the world."

"He still struggles with identity, both as a black man and as a gay man. He's still trying to figure this all out, but really, aren't we all in some way?"

Davis works with kids in New York City; at the Hetrick-Martin Institute, described as a New York organization "which serves lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning youth," he found his personal voice.

He's also campaigning for President Obama he's hoping to help the movement.

Gisele Bundchen is pregnant with another future supermodel or NFL star!

After weeks of speculation, the Brazilian beauty and husband Tom Brady are expecting their second child together, a source confirmed to Us earlier today.

"Yes, she is pregnant," the source dished, adding that the 31-year-old is "already three months" along. "They are both really happy!" the source says. Yay!

The Victoria's Secret stunner reportedly begged out of the 13th annual Best Buddies Event in Hyannis Port, Mass., which Brady chaired, over the weekend.

But so far, at three months along, no Gisele Bundchen photos have shown any hint of a bump. Kate Middleton's baby bump (quote-unquote) is another story.

In a Boston park with Tom on June 1, she offered little sign of a growing belly in a loose-fitting beige top, accessorized with skin-tight pants, shades and a scarf.

The baby-to-be will join big brother Benjamin, the pair's two-year-old son.

Bundchen wed the handsome New England Patriots quarterback, 34, in April 2009; he also has a 4-year-old son, Jack, with his ex Bridget Moynahan.

This is pretty funny. After spending four hours in makeup, 2012 NBA Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving poses as an old man and absolutely DESTROYS some playground basketball players as part of a new viral ad for Pepsi Max.

In Bloomfield, N.J., a Pepsi crew posed as documentary filmmakers taking video of a player named "Kevin." Then his "Uncle Drew" (Irving) showed up.

At the beginning, Uncle Drew embarrasses himself pretty badly, but it turns out he's just softening up the crew for the trash talking and ass-whomping to come.

Marvel at the makeup department (and Irving's crossover) below:

High school junior Meghan Vogel was the big winner at an Ohio Division III girls state track meet on Saturday afternoon, even though she finished dead last.

With 20 meters to go in the 3,200-meter race, Vogel was about to pass Arden McMath, a sophomore from a rival school, when McMath collapsed on the track.

Rather than continue running, Vogel stopped, helped McMath to her feet, placed McMath’s arm around her shoulders and carried her across the finish line.

“Any girl on the track would have done the same for me,” Vogel told ESPN.

Vogel even made sure McMath crossed the finish line first and said she was surprised by the widespread praise she received for an act of selflessness.

“It’s strange to have people telling me that his was such a powerful act of kindness and using words like ‘humanity,’” she said after the fact.

“When I hear words like that I think of Harriet Tubman and saving people’s lives. I don’t consider myself a hero. I just did what I was supposed to do.”

Wow. If only more people approached life like Meghan. Inspiring.

The cool thing: Under the rules, a runner is automatically disqualified for helping another runner during a race, but the officials allowed McMath and Vogel’s times to remain in the results, in second-to-last and last place, respectively.

Some hilarious L.A. Kings fans who didn't mind pissing off the people behind them found a great way to get in the heads of the New Jersey Devils last night.

Right behind the visiting Devils bench, the hockey/MTV fans held up enormous cardboard cut-outs of the heads of some of gang from MTV's Jersey Shore.

Photos showed blown-up heads of The Situation, Pauly D, JWoww and Snooki right behind the bench as the surging Kings whomped visiting Jersey, 4-0.

We give all the credit to these clowns:

JS heads

While the Garden State boasts American pop cultural icons like Bruce Springsteen, Frank Sinatra and Jon Bon Jovi, clearly there's not a lot to mock there.

The Jersey Shore cast, though? Ridicule away.

Of course, none of the Devils coaches or players are from New Jersey originally and 18 are not even American, but nevertheless, nicely played, fans.

Follow the jump for two more looks:

We've posted plenty of local news blunders on THG, but this woman saying that Game 4 of the NBA's Eastern Conference finals ended in a tie is up there.

On Sunday night's news broadcast of Portland, Maine, ABC affiliate WMTW - a New England station no less! - News 8's Meghan Torjussen failed hard.

"The Boston Celtics, hosting the Miami Heat in Boston for Game 4 of the NBA Eastern Conference finals," Torjussen said. "I guess the game just ended."

"It ended in a tie. This is what my producer is telling me right now."

At that point, a graphic reading "Miami 89, Boston 89" appeared on the screen ... which was the score at the time, but the game was, of course, not over.

"There you go," Torjussen said. "There's the score, 89-89. Down to the wire, 21 seconds left, ended in a tie. ... All right, moving on to professional baseball."

Hopefully she's not moving on to a new career later this week.

Defense lawyers in Jerry Sandusky's child sex abuse trial, set to begin this week, asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for a delay in the proceedings.

A lower court rejected the request late last week.

Jury selection is scheduled for Tuesday in the trial of Sandusky, 68, who was arrested in November and faces 52 criminal counts for the alleged abuse of 10 boys over 15 years.

He denies all of the allegations, which tarnished Penn State University and brought down the legendary Joe Paterno, who passed away last winter.

The defense said it wanted more time to review material from the prosecution and a delay is warranted for their experts and potential witnesses to be available at trial.

Judge John Cleland, who will preside over the trial, wrote that another issue involved grand jury secrecy, so the motion for a continuance had been filed under seal.

Cleland did not rule on the defense's effort to have the charges thrown out. Sandusky's lawyers have argued that in some instances the allegations are too vague, and in other circumstances rely on impermissible hearsay or lack sufficient evidence.

The judge also had not addressed requests by five alleged victims for a court order that would prevent their identities from being disclosed to the public.

Opening statements are expected June 11.

Shawn Johnson has mounted her final set of parallel bars.

The four-time Olympic medalist and 2009 Dancing with the Stars champion announced over the weekend that a knee injury has forced her to retire from the sport she loves, just a few weeks prior to the London Olympics.

"I still have the heart, drive, and desire to compete and help the USA at the London Olympics," Johnson said in a statement. "Unfortunately, it has become obvious that my left knee is not able to sustain the demands of gymnastics any longer. All I can do now is gracefully retire and thank everyone who has believed in me and my journey."

Johnson suffered the injury while skiing in 2010.

Only 20, the athlete says she is unsure what's next - aside from a trip to England to cheer on her teammates - but she's excited for new challenges.

"I'm scared to death to know what the future holds because it's kind of a blinded road I've never thought about, but I'm excited as well. I'm ready to start the journey," Johnson told ESPN.
