Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen is under fire over comments published last week in which he appeared to express his love for Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

Guillen, speaking in the Marlins' dugout before today's game at Philadelphia, said he plans to fly back to Miami tomorrow morning to face the media and public.

He says he feels "guilty" and "embarrassed" and wants to address questions personally after sparking controversy with his remarks to Time magazine.

"I want to make everything clear what's going on. Then people can see me and know what I think," Guillen said. "I think it's the proper thing so people can see my eyes."

"I want to get the thing over with. I told the Marlins I want to fly (back) as soon as I can, and tomorrow's a day off. I don't want to (talk about it) in Philadelphia."

"I want to be in Miami and clear everything up."

"I want them to know I'm against everything 100 percent - I will repeat it again - the way this man (has been) treating people for the last 60 years."

"I want the people there. Whoever feels about it, ask me any questions. I want you to ask what you ask, because I feel bad? Yes. I feel embarrassed? Yes."

Supermodel Bar Refaeli looked like she picked up some tennis tips from Rafael Nadal in this new ad for under.me ... which is apparently a clothing line.

A comfortable one, it looks like.

The Israeli beauty is featured playing tennis in her under.me underwear, and her groundstrokes, volleys and footwork look stronger than you'd expect.

What, you're not looking at her mechanics? Our bad. What about her Nadal-esque wedgie adjustment? Somehow it's hotter when she does it ...

Lamar Odom's time as a member of the Dallas Mavericks has come to an end. The NBA star left the team today, ending a short and unsuccessful tenure in Big D.

According to ESPN, an agreement reached Sunday allows the two sides to part company immediately, without the Mavericks having to officially release Odom.

The unusual move means the struggling 13-year veteran is now off the Dallas roster for the remainder of the season, but rights are retained by the Mavericks.

The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it's in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team," Odom said in a statement to ESPN.

"I'm sorry that things didn't work out better for both of us, but wish the Mavs' organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success."

Sources said Odom's immediate departure allows the Mavs to list him as inactive, but not cut him, leaving open the possibility that they could still trade Odom.

Any team that has Odom on its roster as of June 29 must buy him out by that date for $2.4 million or pay the full $8.2 million Odom is set to earn in 2012-13.

The Mavs acquired the 13-year veteran before the season started in what looked like a steal of a deal with the L.A. Lakers. Wishful thinking, it turned out.

At the time of the trade, the Mavs were thought to have scored a huge coup - the reigning Sixth Man of the Year to help cushion the loss of Tyson Chandler.

That vision never materialized, though, as he struggled terribly. As we saw on last night's Khloe & Lamar, his head, heart and reality show were always in L.A.

American Bubba Watson won golf's most prestigious tournament, The Masters, in a wild and dramatic playoff over South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen Sunday in Augusta, Ga.

Both turned in unbelievable shots during and en route to the sudden death clash. Watson effectively sealed it with his second shot on the second playoff hole.

After a wayward tee shot left him stranded in the trees with little or no direct angle toward the hole, Bubba somehow pulled off this ridiculous iron stroke:

Earlier in the day, on the second hole, Oosthuizen catapulted himself into the lead with the ever rare double eagle, or albatross - a 2 on a par 5! Watch here:

Whatever you think of Tim Tebow, you can't doubt his sincerity.

On Easter Sunday, nearly 15,000 worshipers flocked to Celebration Church in Georgetown, Texas, to hear the newest New York Jet speak at that morning's service.

Churchgoers gathered in fields for a music-filled outdoor service, with people flocking from miles around to hear and see the deeply devout Christian football star.

During the service, the former University of Florida star turned NFL sensation, who was recently traded, joined the pastor on stage for a 20-minute interview.

"It's OK to be outspoken about your faith," said Tebow, the son of former Baptist missionaries who became known for wearing Bible verses on his eyeblack.

Tebow good-naturedly talked about the craze known as "Tebowing," noting that he's done it for the past seven years now and doesn't mind being parodied.

It means prayer is being talked about, he says, which is what matters.

Tebow recently reached out to the church's pastor, Joe Champion, about visiting his congregation, and Easter Sunday happened to the best date for the football star.

On a typical Easter, the church attracts about 10,000 people, Champion said. So Tebow proved a big lure for people who would otherwise not have come.

"In Christianity, it's the Pope and Tebow right now," Champion told the congregation on Sunday morning. "We didn't have enough room to handle the Pope."

It's safe to say Gregg Williams will never coach in the NFL ever again.

Already suspended indefinitely by Commissioner Roger Goodell - due to his role in a New Orleans Saints bounty program, in which players under his control pooled money and offered it was a reward for debilitating hits - Williams is in the spotlight again this week because audio of a speech he delivered prior to a 2012 playoff game against the 49ers has been leaked.

And it isn't pretty.

As you can hear in the video above, Williams encourages his players to "kill the head" and "the body will die."

University of Arkansas Head Football Coach Bobby Petrino was placed on administrative leave yesterday after he admitted to a "previous inappropriate relationship" with a former student and current school employee.

Athletic Director Jeff Long made the announcement at a press conference, as the news came to light after Petrino was involved in a motorcycle accident this week and forced to admit he was riding with 25-year old Jessica Dorrell.

"I'm at the beginning of the review. I don't know what I'm going to find," Long said. "I hope to have a resolution soon. I certainly don't have all the answers here tonight, as we meet. But again, I have an obligation and responsibility to obtain the information and then act appropriately on that information."

Petrino is married with four children.

Another game, another set of monster dunks by Blake Griffin. Maybe his best?

A hotly-anticipated game between L.A.'s Lakers and Clippers had barely gotten started last night when Griffin wowed the Staples Center crowd - and everyone else on Twitter - with a high-flying putback slam over Lakers power forward Pau Gasol.

It's as if he knew Randy Foye's three was going to brick right toward him ...

The dunk lifted everyone on the Clippers bench out of their seats and sent Gasol crashing down beneath the basket. "Poor Pau," the announcer said.

It got better/worse. With the Clippers struggling to keep pace in the third quarter, Griffin threw down another epic dunk ... again over Gasol. Watch:

Do either of both of these make our Top 10 NBA dunks list? Pretty close.

Fortunately for Pau, the Lakers went on to win 113-108 to move two and a half games ahead of the Clippers. He still may end up on 1-2 posters.

Joe Flacco is hoping to work out a new deal with the Baltimore Ravens prior to the start of the 2012 NFL season and, in an interview with local radio station WNST 1570 today, said he didn't want to be paid like a very good quarterback.

He wants to get paid like the very best in football.

"I think I'm the best," Flacco said. "I don't think I'm top five, I think I'm the best. I don't think I'd be very successful at my job if I didn't feel that way. I mean, c'mon? That's not really too tough of a question."

Eli Manning made similar waves about a year ago when he said he considered himself an "elite" signal caller, and then proceeded to scoff at the critics who believed otherwise, leading the Giants to the Super Bowl title.

So should Baltimore start planning a victory parade for February 2013 now? You tell us: Who is the best quarterback in the NFL?

Like countless other Americans, Washington Wizards swingman Chris Singleton learned that week that he did not win the Mega Millions jackpot valued at well over $400 million.

Unlike his fellow citizens, however, Singleton believed he actually had a relatively decent chance... considering he purchased $10,000 worth of tickets for the drawing!

Explaining on Twitter that he considered the collection of tickets to be an "investment," the former Florida State standout added the hashtag #halfwaytoabillionaireifiwin and told followers:

“If I get richer, I will change the world for the better.”

That's nice to know. Not as nice as if Singleton had simply donated the 10 grand to a food bank instead of essentially flushing it down the toilet. But hey. The guy plays for the Wizards. He's not exactly familiar with winning game plans.

Does the rookie, who is averaging 4.8 points per game, have any regrets? Nope. The only options available to him and this cash were to play Mega Millions or "blow it in the club," he Tweeted.

But is that really true? What should Chris Singleton have done with his $10,000?
