Lakers Sends Spurs Back to San Longoria, David Beckham Gets Wet, Tony Hawks Jeep for Charity Auction, Pro Team Challenge Countdown, Interview With the Real World’s Greg Halstead
DAVID BECKHAM- WET
Yeah, its Friday and I need to give a shout-out to David Beckham for pouring water on himself. Golden Balls is training with England, who are set to face Trinidad & Tobago in a friendly match June 2.
LAKERS BENCH SPURS
The Lakers came back from a 17-point deficit last night to beat the Spurs 100-92 and win the conference finals in five games. The Lakers celebrated the Western Conference championship before their adoring fans at Staples Center last night…among those adoring fans…
Dr. Dre, Tobey Maguire (L), Antonio Banderas, Cameron Diaz, Denzel Washington & P. Diddy©, and B-Diddy (aka Baron Davis) and Adam Sandler®. No doubt it was party-time in LA after the game…but didn’t see any sign of a weed-stealing posse sitting courtside to supply a certain bearded baller who is too-ego driven to address the lack of character his friends have.
TONY HAWKS JEEP
Tony Hawk has put his Jeep up on Ebay…from June 12-22 you can bid on a one of a kind 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4×4, which has been tricked out with all the latest and best features. The winning bidder will also receive 4 VIP Tickets to Tony’s tour and get to meet him…the best part, 100% of the proceeds will benefit The Tony Hawk Foundation, which seeks to improve society by supporting and empowering youth.
GREG HALSTEAD: REAL WORLD HOTTIE
I know he’s not an athlete, but he’s certainly got the looks to be considered a hottie…admittedly, I don’t watch the ‘Real World’, but was asked to interview Greg for Look to the Stars. I did my research and after reading some of viewer comments about him-I thought for sure I was going to be talking to an arrogant fool. But it was quite the contrary. Greg was one of the nicest guys I’ve spoken to. He was candid, intelligent, articulate and confident. And the most surprising thing about Greg? Greg asked to be involved with charity- he told his PR guy that he wanted to do something worthwhile with his ‘fame.’ This weekend, Greg is donating his time to raise awareness about the Damon and Stella Foundation.
