First up-is Tommy Chong coming out of retirement, or is that the golden boy himself Derek Jeter?
Unfortunately, it's Derek.
If he's gonna bang his way through Hollywood, it wouldn't hurt to squeeze in some acting on the side. Derek Jeter lets it all out and dons a wig for a cameo role as a homeless man in an upcoming movie starring Will Ferrell. Interesting that baseball's golden boy and one of the wealthiest players would take up a movie role as a homeless man. What's your take on it? I found that story on deadspin.
In other bizzare news, Alex Rodriguez has found his way into sports blog ridicule once again. According to Kate Hudson, his newest GF, Alex has 2 paintings of himself as a centaur hanging above his bed.
Say it-UGH!!! But what Kate didn't mention was that Alex also had this unusual artifact in his home:
Truly, his ego knows no bounds...
I thought I'd end tonight's post with this other story that has nothing to do with the sports world whatsoever. Take note, though, this story is not for the weak-stomached (is "stomached" a real word? Oh well, who cares. It is now!).
In this article from the British online newspaper, the Telegraph, a Dutch woman had a strange obsession with silverware. What happened was, she'd go to her friend's houses for lunch and instead of eating food, she'd eat the silverware! Of course, once her stomach would start to hurt from all that metal, she'd go to the hospital to have her stomach emptied. To show how shocking this was, surgeons once pulled 75 forks and spoons from her stomach (no knives-interestingly, she wouldn't eat knives). The head surgeon said he'd never seen anything like this in his entire career, and he'd seen alot of stuff. Through therapy and medication, she has slowly come away from eating utensils, but it's not completely gone cuz according to her, the urge is still there. I found this story on rotten.com-a website known for strange, bizzare, and often gross stories.
Now, if your dinner is still intact, have a wonderful weekend!
