Alex Rodriguez is negotiating a settlement and suspension with Major League Baseball stemming from his use of performance enhancing drugs, reports say.

Last week, it was rumored that A-Rod faced a lifetime ban if he fought the MLB and lost. Now, it looks like he's quietly working on a different strategy.

Nose Picking By Alex Rodriguez

A source familiar with discussions told ESPN that A-Rod's representatives are now negotiating a possible settlement that could result in a long suspension.

MLB officials have told his attorneys that they are willing to ban him for life, although sources said it is not clear if commissioner Bud Selig is prepared to.

Retirement from swimming apparently suits Michael Phelps well in the girlfriend department - he's dating Golf Channel's Win McMurry - and the facial hair realm.

As mustaches go, Phelps' is fairly epic by modern standards:

Michael Phelps' Mustache

Debuted within an adorable, black-and-white photograph of the Olympic champion and his niece, the new look definitely suits him, don't you think?

Phelps posted the shot on his Instagram today, and we're not sure if it just works because he has 87 gold medals, or because it's just that awesome.

Either way, though, it's en emphatic win. Don't you agree?

What do you think of Michael Phelps' mustache?

Former reality star, new mom and the fiancee of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, Kristin Cavallari is apparently designing NFL Women's Apparel.

Her collection won't debut until New York Fashion Week in September, but she shared four early sketches of items she's working on. Take a look:

Kristin Designs

Naturally, for her favorite team, Kristin Cavallari, 26, is designing a simple form-fitting Bears mini dress with her lifetime love's jersey number on the back.

Her potential Denver design featured a similar dress shape, albeit with a checkered pattern, while her Texans model is more of a sexy midriff crop top.

Kristin has celebrity company among the NFL Women's Apparel crew.

Stacy Keibler (a former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader) and supermodel Karolina Kurkova will both star in ads for the clothing collection later this year.

That can't hurt sales, that's for sure.

Philadelphia Eagles receiver Riley Cooper has become public enemy #1 since a video surfaced of him using the N-word at a Kenny Chesney concert.

Cooper, who is white, apologized and was fined by the team. He later held a news conference at the team's headquarters where he apologized at length.

On Twitter, both athletes and fans alike chimed in, as you would expect. But what you might not expect was that Marcus Vick put a bounty on Riley Cooper:

  • R-Coop

Vick, a former college football star and brother of Cooper's Eagles teammate Michael Vick, quickly deleted the Tweet after his girlfriend made him (apparently).

Michael, for his part, took a different view:

Portuguese soccer god Cristiano Ronaldo is giving last month's Carly Rae Jepsen first pitch fail a run for its terrible money ... and he's a pro athlete!

Throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the Dodgers game in Los Angeles last night, Ronaldo showed fans why he's made millions with his footwork.

He airmailed the catcher by a good five feet. Take a look:

Cristiano Ronaldo First Pitch

We'll give him a pass for at least getting it to the plate. Perhaps he was overcompensating out there, with Carly Rae's epic fail in the back of his mind.

Also, at least he didn't fall down fist-pumping a la Chad Qualls.

Check out the full video of his Ronaldo's first pitch below:

Lululemon Athletica showcases different sizes of its popular yoga pants in such a way that deliberately shuns bigger customers, a new report suggests.

Lulu L

Most merchandise is presented out on the floor, hung on the walls, or folded neatly in cabinets for all the world to see, the Huffington Post reports.

But the largest sizes - the 10s and the 12s - are merely relegated to a separate area at the back of the store, left clumped and unfolded under a table.

Moreover, the only styles of yoga pants even available in those sizes were older Lululemon designs whose fashion moment had long since passed.

Philadelphia Eagles receiver Riley Cooper apologized for a racial slur he used against an African-American security guard at a Kenny Chesney concert.

Cooper's lengthy apology was only the beginning for Cooper, as he was fined an undisclosed amount by the team and possibly more from the NFL.

The athlete said he intended to apologize later to his teammates, many of whom are African American, following a 7 p.m. walk-through practice.

"It's going to be very difficult for me. I'm going to tell them, 'I'm extremely sorry,' tell them exactly what I'm telling you guys," Cooper told the media.

"There was a confrontation and I handled it extremely, extremely poorly. This is kind of the lowest of lows. This isn't the type of person I want to be portrayed as."

O.J. Simpson won a small victory Wednesday as the State of Nevada granted him parole on some of his 2008 convictions for kidnapping and armed robbery.

The decision doesn't mean O.J. will be leaving prison anytime soon, though.

O.J. Simpson at Parole Hearing

The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners released its decision in favor of Simpson's parole request on Wednesday. It becomes effective October 2.

Commissioners noted Simpson's "positive institutional record" and participation in programs addressing "behavior that led to incarceration."

He was convicted on many charges and still faces at least four more years behind bars based on sentences that were ordered to run consecutively.

Usain Bolt is headed to Moscow soon for the Athletics World Championships. Most people make sure they learn the essential phrases in a foreign language before leaving home.

Things like, "where is the bathroom" and "how much for this crappy souvenir that was likely made in China just like the stuff at home?" Important things.

When you are the world's fastest man, however, your needs are a bit different. 

Check out what Russian phrases Mr. Bolt chooses to learn in the Puma ad below!

Seems about right. The real question though is this, they are still using tapes in Jamaica?
