August 2010 | Sharapova's Thigh

Jay Cutler's apparently getting some of that.

There's a rumor going around today that Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is dating Thigh of the Week alum, Kristin Cavallari. Even if they're not officially "dating", they were reportedly seen making out like crazy at a club in Chicago last night:

Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Kristin Cavallari and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler were all over each other, ‘kissing and acting all in love’ last night at the Angels and Kings lounge in Chicago.

I'm a Jay Cutler fan, as I'm a diehard Chicago Bears fan. Additionally, I'm a Kristin Cavallari fan, as I'm a diehard fan of hot women. Having said that, their personalities and attitudes would seem to match quite well, and I don't mean that in a good way.

Anyway, nice catch, Jay. Now if only we could get your wide receivers to do the same thing.

(Please keep your "Kristin Cavallari intercepted Jay Cutler" jokes to a minimum, please. Thanks. Go Bears.)

Update: Sean Jensen, a Bears beat writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, asked Cutler today about the Cavallari rumors:

"I find it funny," Cutler told me. "That stuff, you just have to laugh about. I had dinner with her, and that was pretty much about it."

Cutler said he expects to draw that sort of attention.

"It's a sports town," he said. "It really is, and they love their football so it comes with it."

Come on, Jay. No guy has a friendly dinner with Kristin Cavallari.

You know those giant tennis balls people buy at tennis matches to get signed(if you don't just click here to see)? Well, Nike's launched a shoe intended for the same purpose: the Nike 10S Signature Model.

As the description of the Nike 10s Signature model rom the "Nike Tennis" Facebook page says, they sell as a single shoe in size-15:

Put away that oversized tennis ball! We've got a new way for you to collect your favorite players' autographs: the Nike 10S Signature Model! This Nike-exclusive keepsake is a truly unique canvas to collect and display your autograph collection! The 10S sells as a single shoe with a felt tip pen and comes in a men's size 15, so you'll never run out of room for signatures. Available at NIKETOWN New York, onsite at the tournament, and at our partner retailers: Mason's Tennis Mart and NYC Racquet Sports..
I have no idea how much these cost, but I'm going to guess they cost more than an autograph from a tennis player is worth. That is unless they're signed by Maria Sharapova, of course.

If you've followed us much this year, you've likely seen our posts about Jose Canseco, and the crazy things he spews on his Twitter account. It's extremely entertaining stuff, if you can handle the extreme vulgarity, and the ridiculousness of it all.

Early this morning, somebody clearly pissed Canseco off. Here's what the former baseball star had to say for his 350,000+ followers:
U son of a bitch u no who u r.u fuck with me and try to say those chandeliers and my other belongings in that house r urs some one will kill

I hate liars you should all be killed fuck with me and find out.I no where u live u scum bag.try to take the little I have left will kill

I have peole who want you dead for what you did

Try me u scumbag cockroach will make u and ur family suffer

I am sick and tired of our system allowing liars and hypocrits to thrive and succeed when honest good people suffer

Try to take what's mine when I come get it and I will crush you

You steel the little things I have left and you will face me

What a charming fellow.

Irina Shayk Is Nearly Naked For GQ

Posted by Matt Clapp | 8/26/2010 05:15:00 PM | , , , ,


Irina Shayk's been featured on here much lately, and for good reason. She's well on her way to becoming the next Megan Fox, Jessica Alba, or Keeley Hazell in the babeosphere.

The girlfriend of soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo recently took her talents to GQ to pose in the September issue of the magazine. The results? Sweet success, and not much clothing. Check out the pictures:



And then if you want to see one more picture that I decided not to put on here due to some visible boobage, here you go:

Interesting *rumor* going around the web today, that Brad Pitt could be starring in a movie based off the video game, Red Dead Redemption:

Sources say the Hollywood heartthrob is the hot favorite to play renegade outlaw John Marston in an epic cowboy shoot-em-up based on the PlayStation game.

“This is an exciting project with a great character at the center of it,” a source said.

“The idea is to make this in the style of an epic Western movie but with a few modern touches.

Link(Showbiz Spy)

IGN.Com asked the maker of the video game, Rockstar Games(most known for their "Grand Theft Auto" video game series), about this rumor:
When asked about the report, Rockstar Games told IGN the studio does not comment on rumor or speculation.

Link(IGN)

I own the video game(and love it), and think it would be one of the easier video game-to movie transitions out there. It could make a pretty awesome western-themed film, especially if Brad Pitt stars as John Marston.

So this is definitely a rumor worth keeping an eye on, and surely more information will come soon in regards to it.

Maria Sharapova's 2010 US Open Dresses

Posted by Matt Clapp | 8/26/2010 02:47:00 PM | , , , ,


Ken Fang of the outstanding blog, Fang's Bites, had a nice find for us: Maria Sharapova's 2010 US Open dresses were revealed.

Here they are:

The light blue dress will be used for day matches, and the purple dress will be used for night matches.

I think it's quite, quite safe to say she'll look great in these, and hopefully she can win a US Open title in them as well.

The New York Times put together an interesting video gallery featuring some popular women's tennis players, playing tennis in slow-motion(not actual match footage, but some pretty cool studio action).

The video is called "The Beauty of the Power Game", and is based on their article "How Power Has Transformed Tennis". It's a terrific read, and even talks about Maria Sharapova:

But back, too, from shoulder trouble, is Maria Sharapova, the Russian champion and tennis’s commercial gold mine, the quintessential baseline basher with razor-sharp ball-striking abilities. She won her last Grand Slam in 2008 and reached the final against Clijsters earlier this month in Cincinnati, where she injured her heel but looked as if she had nearly returned to form. At Wimbledon, after beating Anastasia Pivovarova, another towering Russian, 6-1, 6-0, in the first round, she could be seen marching back to the locker room, all business, cellphone clapped to one ear, her white satin bolero sparkling in the afternoon glare as the crowds, like filings drawn to a magnet, swiveled to watch her pass, whispering “Sharapova” in her wake as if she were an apparition.

Chris Johnson better be the #1 overall pick in your fantasy football draft.

The 2010 NFL season is almost upon us, which means the 2010 fantasy football season is as well. Good times ahead.

The last two years, I've done weekly roundups on here for fantasy football, which include useful fantasy football links, injury news, and some of my own analysis to help(hopefully) win your league.

And starting last year, I did a roundup to help you prepare for the almighty draft, as obviously that's the most important part of any fantasy football season. What you're reading now is our second edition of that, and here you'll find some quality draft kits, player projections, player rankings, players to monitor with injury concerns, and just other useful links that I've found.

If you find any good fantasy football material that fits what I'm doing here and is not already included in this post, please e-mail me at sharapovasthigh@gmail.com, and I'll definitely consider adding it.

Keep checking back, as I will surely update this.

Note: These links are in no particular order, so don't feel bad if your site is listed last...


Other Great Links...

Hopefully these links you dominate your draft. And again, e-mail me at sharapovasthigh@gmail.com if you have any links that you think should be included on here.

UPDATE(8/27, 3:40 PM ET): Added a few links from Fantasy Pros 911(projections, rankings, and PPR rankings), rankings from kNuke, a very cool post from Yahoo(all-time fantasy team, busts, & one-year wonders), RotoRob's top ten sleepers, the top 15 preseason risers according to Rotoworld, Fanhouse's rankings, and their look at what the Greg Camarillo trade to the Vikings means for fantasy.

I'll continue to update this, so keep checking back. And keep sending me your links.

UPDATE(9/1, 2:35 PM ET): Great links from Ask Men, Fantasy Knuckleheads, Bruno Boys, Fantasy Pros 911, Rotoworld, Razzball, and CBS Sports were inserted into the post. So make sure to give those a read.

I also updated the injured players to monitor. Darren McFadden, Marshawn Lynch, Michael Crabtree, and Percy Harvin were removed, as they all seem good to go for week one. However, Maurice Jones-Drew, Michael Bush, and Steve Slaton are all banged up, or at least rumored to be banged up, as is the case with Jones-Drew. He's the one you really want to make sure is healthy before drafting in the top four.
