Obligatory Sports Babe
You're Hot But You Scare Us week heads in a new direction with today's babe, Draya Michele. Where our previous frightning hotties – Jillian Michaels, Gina Carano and Mia St. John – are all scary for their ability to inflict physical harm on us, Draya's scary because I have this feeling that she could go full-on bunny boiler given the right circumstances.
For that matter, I feel like all of the Basketball Wives have that potential. Metta World Peace's lady was smart to get the hell out of there.
Today's Sports Birthday
Queen's Park Rangers midfielder Kieron Dyer turns 33 today. Dyer's best known for only having only played in 30 games during his three years at West Ham, meaning that he earned a remarkable £450,000 per game, and for having once exposed himself to a hotel maid.
Deion Sanders' daughter, Deiondra, called her former stepmother out on Twitter. Prime Time and Pilar Sanders called it quits earlier in the month. Here's what Deiondra had to say to Mommy Dearest:
"all u had to do was be a supportive wife. THE ONLY THING U EVER CARED ABOUT DOING WITH MY DAD IS REALITY SHOWS, ALL STAR AND SUPPER BOWL...."
She followed up with the even classier message of:
"#HowYouDidntKnow but according to THE BLOGS the yo SECOND ATTORNEY cause u tryna fight a prenup #GoldDigginHoe"
When did "hoe" become the accepted spelling? I was under the impression that a "hoe" was a garden tool, while "ho" is synonym for "skank." Did I miss a memo? And what the hell is a supper bowl?

The Pac-12 and the Big Ten are working on a schedule sharing agreement that would ensure one inter-conference game for each school in the two leagues. The plan would kick into effect for the 2017 season. I am absolutely beside myself with joy at the thought of getting to watch Northwestern play Washington State. (Lost Lettermen)
