NFL star Terrell Owens had surgery on a torn ACL in his knee, according to ESPN, which cites a source claiming he hurt himself filming The T.O. Show.

The athlete has not commented on the injury, but the best case scenario would like be that he could be available to play in "mid to late November."

That assumes there's a season (the NFL is currently in an ongoing labor dispute with no end in sight) and someone wants T.O. (he's not that good).

Owens' mediocre season with the Cincinnati Bengals was cut short when he tore meniscus cartilage in his left knee in late December of last year.

Will we see Terrell Owens on the field again? If not, his legacy will be ... unique.

By the numbers, he's one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history. But come on. It's T.O. He'll likely be best remembered for being a malcontent with a desperate need for attention who wore out his welcome with five teams.

In a way, an injury sustained on his VH1 show would be a fitting end to the career of a man whose talent has long been overshadowed by narcissism.

Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest wants to change his name.

Come next season (if there is a season), the NBA star may known as ... Metta World Peace. Metta is a Buddhist-derived word meaning loving, kindness, friendliness, goodwill, benevolence, fellowship, amity, inoffensiveness and non-violence.

World peace ... You probably get that part.

Ron Artest Pic

You want a PEACE of this?

Artest's attorney filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday seeking the change. The 31-year-old NBA star was born Ronald William Artest Jr.

In the court documents, Ron cites personal reasons for wanting to make the change. An August 26 hearing has been scheduled regarding the petition.

Unless there is a clearly offensive or fraudulent intent, such requests are almost always approved, no matter how ridiculous. See Ochocinco, Chad.

Anyone who saw the Super Bowl in February also saw Cameron Diaz feed popcorn to Alex Rodriguez in a hilariously awkward, PDA-packed display.

Promoting her flick Bad Teacher, the star gave us the inside scoop on the snacky sideshow to David Letterman on The Late Show Tuesday night.

She then reenacted the incident with the cantankerous host ...

"We were sitting there watching the game, and I was eating, and I was getting down to, like, the last couple pieces of popcorn," Diaz recalled.

"All of a sudden, I see [Alex's] hand coming in. Anybody who knows me does not put a hand in my food, especially this close to my mouth."

But ... "I said, 'What are you ... ?' And then I went, 'You know what? I love you too much, I'm going to give it to you. You deserve it.'" Aww/barf.

As for their relationship, Diaz put an end to any A-Rod breakup rumors, calling him her boyfriend, in spite of his overzealous snacking and everything.

Sounds like a keeper.

Hey, yo, Scott Hall is headed to jail.

The former WWE/WCW/TNA star will spend two days behind bars for his role in a Florida bar argument last May, as Hall was arrested for being uncooperative with police when they intervened to stop him from screaming at fellow patrons.

Yesterday, a judge in Seminole County sentenced Hall to 10 days in prison for the incident, reducing that figure to two days for time served.

Hall played a key role in arguably the most shocking wrestling event on record: when Hulk Hogan turned heel at the 1996 Bash at the Beach. Watch the video above to relive that iconic moment.

Let this be a lesson, rioters. It's not worth it. One minute you're steamed over your team losing Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The next? Boom.

In the case of this Vancouver Canucks fan, what started as good fun and stress relief blew up in a flash. A flash grenade to the crotch, that is.

We normally wouldn't tag a video such as this in our "LOL" section, but when you're rioting by choice after a hockey game, you ask for it ...

There's little to really say about the ignorant statements made by former NFL wideout David Tyree yesterday.

An African-American, he actually asked - in an interview with the National Organization for Marriage - how a law can be changed simply because an "influential minority" pushes an "agenda."

He also said New York state approving a gay marriage bill would be a step toward "anarchy."

A rep for the Human Rights Campaign couldn't keep quiet after that one. He/she said to TMZ:

"Anarchy? Hardly. Committed gay and lesbian couples have been able to legally marry in five states and the District of Columbia - not to mention a number of foreign countries - for years now and cows are still giving milk, little boys are still pulling little girls’ pig tails, and we still drive on the right side of the street."

How do you make a movie about baseball stats appeal to the masses? Two words:

Brad Pitt. With an assist from Jonah Hill, Aaron Sorkin and Michael Lewis, to boot.

A true story adapted from Lewis' book of the same name, Moneyball stars Pitt as Oakland A's GM Billy Beane, who built a winning team against all odds.

Using statistical data to calculate the best, cheapest and most undervalued players for his rag-tag roster, Beane turned conventional wisdom on its head.

Jonah Hill stars as Pitt's geeky understudy and right hand man, while Oscar-winner Sorkin co-wrote the screenplay. Check out the official Moneyball trailer:

Allen Iverson's once prolific pro basketball career really tailed off in recent years. Now it looks like his marriage to Tawanna Iverson is following suit.

Tawanna is, once again, calling off her marriage to the ex-NBA star, filing divorce papers in Fulton County, Ga., for the second time in 15 months.

Tawanna Iverson calls their 10-year marriage "irretrievably broken."

Allen Iverson: Thug Lyfe

According to court documents, the two have five minor children together. Tawanna is seeking sole legal and physical custody of those children.

Tawanna is demanding child support and alimony payments as well as her fair share of property and money accumulated during the marriage.

Gonna be rough. Or not. However, just last year, Tawanna filed for divorce from Allen Iverson, who's now balling in Turkey. She dropped the case then.

You never know ...
