The Baseball Hall of Fame got no new inductees Wednesday after Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, and Roger Clemens didn't get enough votes to get in. It wasn't a total loss. They didn't make it into the Hall of Fame but they did finish in a four-way tie for Mr. Olympus.
Brent Musberger drooled all over Miss Alabama Karen Webb when cameras showed her in the stands during the title game Monday. He's seventy years old and she's twenty. In Alabama she'd be his granddaughter and in Los Angeles she would be his murder victim.
Lance Armstrong agreed to go on Oprah and confess to steroid use Friday. His world has collapsed. Last fall, Nike terminated Lance Armstrong's contract, saying it doesn't condone performance enhancing drugs unless it helps Asian children increase production.
The Hollywood Reporter said Hillary Rodham Clinton's life as a young congressional staffer in the Seventies will be made into a feature movie. It covers the time she and Bill first met and fell in love. The working title of this movie is An Affair to Refrigerate.
Charlie Sheen thanked L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Twitter Friday for the great time they had partying in Mexico's border country last weekend. The mayor is just lucky he's still alive. Last year Charlie Sheen did enough cocaine to kill Two and a Half Men.

Walmart turned down Joe Biden's request to meet with him to discuss gun violence and gun sales. The store wouldn't even talk to him. They felt they did their part for gun safety last year when they stopped people from making crystal meth in the bathrooms.
