This has been the worst PR week in the history of the National Football League.

Alex Rodriguez should stick to being fed popcorn by Cameron Diaz.

For the second time in a few years, the Yankees third baseman is at the center of an underground poker scandal. According to Radar Online, ARod took part in a couple illegal Texas Hold 'Em games in the recent past, during which cocaine was used and a brawl broke out.
