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.

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.

Milton Bradley stands accused of doing a lot more than merely chasing his wife around with a baseball bat, the act that got him arrested on domestic violence charges last month.

In documents obtained by TMZ, Monique Bradley has filed for a restraining order against her husband, following the aforementioned September 27 incident. She claims the former MLB outfielder picked up a photo of a weapon during the confrontation and said:

This is the gun that I'm going to kill you with.

He also allegedly referred to her as a "dumb bitch" who is "fat, ugly and lazy."

Monique says she has lived in fear for months, even taking the couple's sons to a hotel in January after another altercation. She adds that Milton has been "emotionally and physically abusive" throughout the marriage. So, why did she stick around?

"I genuinely believed that one day I could fix him," she writes, but now "I am very fearful that he will ... try to harm or even kill me."

A hearing is scheduled for October 25 regarding a permanent order of protection.

Dudley O'Shaughnessy says he's too busy to date Rihanna.

It appears Matt Kemp does not have that same problem.

The Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder, who dated Rihanna for all of 2010, reunited with the singer for a night out on the town Wednesday in London.

Might there be a romantic reconciliation in the works?

Matt Kemp and Rihanna in Los Angeles last year.

Spotted leaving Stringfellows Nightclub around 2 a.m., the singer - on a break from her Loud tour - sported plum lipstick and a curly 'do to party with her ex.

It's unclear what the future holds, but they did not part on bad terms.

"She's a good friend of mine," Kemp said after they broke up this winter. "We're good. We've got busy lives and we're concentrating on our careers. Like I said, I wish her all the best of luck and she wishes me all the best of luck."

Unfortunately for Matt, his luck improved after they split. His three-year stats, with 2010 being the season in which he and Rihanna dated, are telling:

2009: .297 BA, 107 R, 26 HR, 34 SB
2010: .249 BA, 82 R, 28 HR, 13 SB
2011: .324 BA, 115 R, 39 HR, 40 SB

You didn't think Hank Williams Jr. was gonna go quietly, did you?

Calling out Fox News and ESPN after an interview with the former led to his firing by the latter last week, the crooner has cut a new song, "Keep the Change."

In the song, Williams sings "So Fox n' Friends wanna put me down ... Ask for my opinion ... Twist it all around ... Two can play that gotcha game you'll see."

Yes. That's what it was. Pure spin. Listen to the track here:

Hank also sings that the U.S. is "going down the drain" and says it's becoming "The United Socialist States of America." We're guessing he's not a Democrat.

After Hank ripped President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner golfing, likening it to Hitler and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu playing a round, ESPN yanked his Monday Night Football theme, then fired Williams a few days later.

The singer defiantly bashed ESPN, then recorded his "revenge" song.

Written and recorded in less than a day, the track was posted on his website Monday, along with "Hank Jr. for President" T-shirts ... an absolute MUST HAVE.
