The Straw Is Back; Rihanna and Matt Kemp? ; Random Links

January 4, 2010

Is it time for a Darryl Strawberrycomeback? Maybe not on the baseball field, but the former Mets star is one of 14 contestants in the upcoming season of NBC’sCelebrity Apprentice. My money is on Sinbad to win, Bret Michaels to score (with the beautiful Maria Kanellis) and for this to be the final season ofCelebrity Apprentice.

I don’t know what to make of thisVanity Faircover featuring a topless Tiger Woods looking scary and lifting weights.

Can We Make This Happen?

The latest trend in sports seems to be athletes challenging one another to a foot race. I, for one, can’t say enough good things about it. It all started about a year ago when Charles Barkley beat 67-year old NBA referee Dick Bavetta in a race during the 2007 All-Star Weekend. Not to be outdone, the artist formally known as Chad Johnson defeated a horse (though he had a healthy headstart). Then,Rajon Rondo stated that he could beat not only Usain Bolt in a race, but also Chris Johnson. Johnson, meanwhile, is also trying to arrange a race with Bolt, who apparently wants nothing to do with it. Meanwhile, 48-year-old Celtics coachDoc Rivers thinks he can beat Glen“Big Baby”Davis and possibly Rasheed Wallace. This got me thinking about my dream races. I’d love to see David Ortiz vs.Prince Fielder or John Calipari take on Rick Pitino.

Matt Kemp’s New Squeeze

This morning we told you about the odd couple o fWladimir Klitschko and Hayden Panettiere. Now comes word that Dodgers outfielderMatt Kemp isdating Rihanna, who manages to be ridiculously hot or rather unattractive, depending on which photo of her you’re looking at.

Things are seriously starting to heat up for the two, says a source close to the songbird. In fact, Oklahoma-native Matt, 25, followed Rihanna, 21, to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, where she performed at the Emirates Palace on New Years Eve.

“Rihanna and Matt are starting to get serious – he even followed her to Dubai for New Years,” the insider tells HollywoodLife.com,  adding, “Rihanna likes him because he’s such a gentleman…and super sexy!”
