Do you believe in curses? Well, everybody who roots for the Seattle Seahawks or who drafted Shaun Alexander in their fantasy league does. The legendary John Madden has struck again!
Is it the Madden cover jinx? Seahawks star Shaun Alexander, the latest to grace the cover of the game, is the latest to get hurt. Alexander is out indefinitely with a broken foot. [keep reading]
If you head over to Snopes.com you’ll learn that yes, the Madden cover jinx is very, very real. From Eddie George to Donovan McNabb, every single player who has graced the cover of Madden has been cursed the following season. Broken bones, fractures, hernias; you name it. If you’re on the cover, you’re going to suffer.
Now if only USWeekly had a similar problem…
Looks like Paul McCartney is lettin’ the ladies know what they’re missing out on… 5 inches of multi-billion dollar lovin’.
Can you do better? (That shouldn’t be hard… hey-o!) Leave your caption after the jump!
Take a look at this clip, and see if you can recognize the actor playing Fabio. Ah-mee ah-owww. Best way to spend 16 seconds in a long time.
Just when we thought our Project Runway withdrawal couldn’t sink any deeper, a bit of news comes through to feed the addiction. New York Magazine reveals today that yet another PR contestant has been accussed of cheating: Jeffrey Sebelia, the weak-chinned ex-drug addict with the torah scroll tattooed around his neck. Apparently, when the devastatingly charming Tim Gunn visited Jeffrey’s home in Los Angeles to check on his collection, he noted that Sebalia had a lot of work left to do. Somehow, word got back to Xylophone-Chested Nancy‘s (i.e. Laura’s) Mom. When the big runway show went down only a few weeks later, Laura noticed how complete and finely made all of Jeffrey’s clothing was — unusual for a guy whose clothes usually looked like the went through a shredder, and moreso considering how little time he had to finish everything. Hence, Laura accussed Jeffrey of using outside sewers to help him complete the project, something against PR’s strict rules.
Bravo TV execs remain quiet over the turn-out of this serious accusation, and hopefully it will be included in what sounds like one of the most dramatic PR finales yet. We wonder, though, if this means that both Jeffrey and Laura are in the final 3? Or, according to the rumor, will there actually be 4 real runway shows this year, minus the decoy? Check out Jeffrey’s collection for yourself… do you think the guy cheated?
What I Learned Today: Apparently in 1990 Phil Collins shot a mockumentary titled At Lastâ€¦ The Long Lost Network TV Special while on tour*. A bizarre collection of stars including John Travolta, John Candy, and Weird Al made appearances in the film, portraying TV execs hellbent on pitching Mr. Collins their ideas for a network special. Um… yeah. This clip, starring Gilbert Gottfried, Vanessa Williams and the one and only Ultimate Warrior, is the reason YouTube was invented. Enjoy.

Lindsay Lohan hasn’t spoken to father Michael Lohan since his prison sentence for drink driving and battery last year. And according to Pappy MiLo himself, all efforts to get in touch with his lil’ ginger one are being rebuked by self-air-quoted
“people” (read Mother Dina Lohan.) So in a last ditch attempt to contact his daughter, Michael, who recently found God, penned a long and heartfelt letter to his daughter and immediately sent it to British tabloid The Sun. After the jump, read his letter in full, along with our helpful Celebrity Translation.
When you’re onstage performing 3rd rate emo anthems for a crowd of tens of adoring adolescent fans, dressed like a member of the Ku Klux Klan, you might be taking your hate-fueled crusade against blogging a little too far. You say Leto, I say Catalano, but one thing is certain – the revolution will not be blogged about.
Seriously kids, read blogs or end up looking like this:

In honor of the Jewish New Year this past weekend, this week’s game is So You Think You Can Drive, Mel Gibson? Try your best to pick up as many tequila bottles as possible while also avoiding state troopers and those pesky Flying Stars O’David. Sorry, fellas — no flying sugartits in this version… but feel free to bat around some caramel-filled balloons in your cubicle for the ultimate Mel Gibson experience.
Cityrag stumbled upon this gallery of old candid celebrity photographs on Flickr and reminded us of something we had completely forgotten about: old famous people people used to be fun! Tom Cruise, Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster weren’t always crazy, anti-semetic and boring as all hell. They were like Zach Braff, Colin Farrell and Lindsay Lohan… but talented! What a world!
So that begs the question: which current actor or actress is going to grow up and become a restrained, boring Jodie Foster-of-a-celebrity? Jessica Simpson? Paris? Steve-O? Whoever it is, it’s probably going to surprise us. What’s your guess? (For the record, I’m going with Hilary Duff. Just a hunch.)
