The Lingerie Football League can take its endorsement deal and shove it. Paris Jackson isn't messing around with any half-assed football. She's a machine.

Michael Jackson's 13-year-old daughter unleashed the fury on opposing QBs and receivers yesterday during a flag football game. Look at that intensity!

The very first female to join her private school's deal, Paris also played a little offensive line, and mixed it up with the guys with some aggressive blocks.

Paris Jackson, Football

This quarterback is about to get straight up embarrassed by Paris.

When Katherine Jackson took over guardianship of Michael's three children, she enrolled them in the prestigious Buckley School, and they're thriving there.

For those keeping score, Jackson's school emerged victorious ... and after the game, she tweeted about it ... saying, "We Won 32-6!!!!!!!! Yeahhh Boiiiiii!"

Word. That's a bigger pounding than the D.A. is putting on Dr. Conrad Murray. Boiii.

Tony Romo's Dallas Cowboys are off to a 3-3 start, but there's nothing mediocre about this news: The quarterback's wife, Candice Crawford, is pregnant!

The 31-year-old NFL star dropped the bomb himself this morning.

"I actually have one on the way," Romo said during an anti-drug rally at Cedar Hill High School on Tuesday, according to NBC. "My wife is pregnant."

Candice Crawford, Tony Romo

Tony Romo broke the news himself: Candice Crawford is pregnant!

Romo began dating the 24-year-old in the summer of 2009. A former Miss Missouri USA, she's worked as a Dallas sports, news and fashion reporter.

Candice is also the younger sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford.

Engaged since December, Tony married Candice Crawford this May before a crowd of 600 guests in Dallas. Now they're starting a family. Congrats!

Romo's previous loves include Carrie Underwood, Sophia Bush and, most famously, someone else who's been the subject of baby rumors of late.

While we're still waiting for confirmation that Jessica Simpson is pregnant, her former boyfriend had no reservations about breaking the exciting news.

Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan of the NBA's LA Lakers and VH1's Basketball Wives fame, respectively, have announced their split. They had a nice run together, mostly.

After calling off their engagement last year, but convincing the public they're still a couple, the two confirmed the breakup we ALL knew was coming this week.

Matt emailed out a statement today about the split from Gloria Govan (sister of Gilbert Arenas baby mana/Shaq mistress Laura Govan), saying the following:

Gloria Govan, Matt Barnes

“I’d like to address rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship. We've reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.”

Gloria just tweeted her statement saying:

"I'm sure you guys are hearing a ton of buzz about Matt and Me breaking up, sorry to say... its true!!!!!! But the most important thing is focusing on my kids and continuing to have a good relationship with their father, thanks for your support!!!"

A heated Twitter exchange this month between Matt and a fan - who suggested Barnes should Govan or else someone else will - was a bad sign.

Responded Barnes: "He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Classy. Meanwhile, she Tweeted Saturday: "If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you."

Well spoken, Gloria Govan. Well spoken.

Milton Bradley, a former Major League Baseball outfielder as well known for his temper as his production with men in base, has fired back at his wife.

Two weeks ago, Monique Bradley filed for a restraining order from her husband after a confrontation that led to Milton's arrest, during which she claims he pulled out a gun and threatened her life.

But the ex-Mariner/Dodger/Padre has now filed his own documents with L.A. Country Superior Court, TMZ reports, and they label these allegations as "absolutely false."

Bradley says his wife is a repeated liar and he never threatened her, not during this incident and not last month, when she claims he swung a baseball bat in her direction.

Milton and Monique have both filed for divorce, with the former asking a judge to award him joint custody of their young sons. Another one of Bradley's former teams, meanwhile, the Texas Rangers, are a game away from their first World Series title.

Pardon the Interruption will celebrate its 10th anniversary this evening.

That's 10 years of sports analysis by former Washington Post columnists Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon; 10 years of ridiculous pop culture comparisons and debates; 10 years of hilarious openings, all of which involve Wilbon setting up his friend with questions and statements such as the ones posted below.

Watch now, fans of sports and laughter, and let's all raise a glass tonight to 10 more years of this highly entertaining duo:

Who's that girl singing "The Star-Spangled Banner"?

Zooey Deschanel did the honors at Game 4 of the World Series last night, and let's just say the actress can belt out a tune as easily as a witty one-liner?

Sure, it was a nice plug for her new show on the network that aired the game (see some of her best New Girl quotes), but Fox wasn't reaching, either.

Girl can sing! Watch Zooey in action here ...

Deschanel is part of indie pop duo She & Him, sings wonderfully in Elf and those Cotton commercials ... and of course does her own New Girl theme song.

And unlike American Idol winner Scotty McCreery, who possibly flubbed the lines during Game 1 of the World Series, she nailed the words. Just saying.

The big guns come out for the Fall Classic, currently tied 2-2 between Texas and St. Louis. On tap to perform the song before Game 5? Demi Lovato!

Detroit Lions running back Jerome Harrison was nearly dealt to the Philadelphia Eagles this week, but the trade was voided when Harrison failed a physical...

... that may have saved his life.

Sources tell ESPN that Philadelphia doctors discovered a brain tumor while evaluating the player. It's considered treatable and Harrison - who will not play again this season - will visit more physicians this week.

The trade would have sent Ronnie Brown to Detroit to take over in the backfield for injured Jahvid Best. Now, the Lions are left with neither Harrison nor Brown as they face a stiff test at home Sunday against the Falcons.

But the tumor would have remained undetected if not for this physical on Harrison, meaning this is one trade that has a winner outside of the playing field.

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris is a known football enthusiast.

Still, this may not be the best outlet for her, we're thinking.

The 13-year-old is being recruited to be the face of an organization that swears it's helping break down barriers for women in the sport ... which sounds awesome.

The only problem is it's the Lingerie Football League.

Paris Jackson at Tribute Concert

When Paris Jackson became the first female at her private school to join the flag football team earlier this month, the LFL took notice ... and had no shame.

They fired off a letter to the Michael Jackson Estate in the hopes that Paris would be the spokesperson for the league's "youth program." Don't hold your breath.

LFL Commissioner (yes, there is such a position) Mitchell S. Mortaza laments the "lack of options for competitive female football" and looks to her for help.

Karina Smirnoff and Brad Penny have decided to wait on wedding planning.

Rest assured, though, the DWTS pro and MLB pitcher are still together.

Nearly a year after their engagement, "the wedding has been postponed," a source close to couple says. "They are still together, but have conflicting schedules."

With the Tigers out of the playoffs, what does Brad Penny have to do for the next four-plus months besides eat a few more salads and do sit-ups? Just asking.

The couple, both 33, went public with their romance back in 2009, after she and fellow Dancing With the Stars stalwart Maksim Chmerkovskiy called it quits.

"I believe a wedding is a celebration of a future together," Karina Smirnoff mused. "It doesn't matter how it's going to be. Whatever we decide it'll be great."

For the moment however, the couple simply "wants to spend more time with one another," the source explains. "Especially while planning their wedding."

Here's hoping Penny doesn't strike out and lose this keeper.
