Playboy girls Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison – Hugh Hefner’s live in girlfriends have probably got what they wanted from the Playboy mansion and Girls next door – fame! After Holly Madison called it quits with Hefner last month, now it was Kendra Wilkinson’s turn.

Holly Madison was rumored seeing the magician Criss Angel, although she refused it in one of her interviews.

Hank Baskett of Philadelphia Eagles and Kendra Wilkinson of Playboy’s Girls Next Door fame have engaged and will marry soon.

“I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June,” Hefner said.

Fellow racer’s mistake lets Lewis Hamilton win F1 championship in Sao Paulo!

Lewis Hamilton has today become Formula One champion and the youngest F1 champion ever at the age of 23 years. He won the F1 Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paulo just a few hours ago.

Here are a number of observations I’d like to make about this.

  1. Lewis Hamilton was in exactly the same position this time last year on the same track. He needed only to come fifth in the final Grand Prix race in order to win the championship and would have become the youngest winner at age 22. I remember the excitement worldwide. It was a “dead cert” win. I couldn’t watch the race last year and wasn’t worried as I knew he would win. So mouths were left wide open when he lost. I recall thinking I had heard the newsreader on BBC news wrong when the results came in. The world was in shock and it the worst luck that he had encountered gearbox problems and not finished in a championship position. Räikkönen won that one.
  2. Today’s Grand Prix had a nail biting finish. Lewis was in exactly the same position, needing only to come fifth in order to win the F1 championship. This year everyone was more cautious and concerned about him winning after many commentators realized Hamilton seems to buckle under pressure. And right they were too. Everyone was at the edge of their seats as it seemed that Lewis was going to come sixth in the race today. Our heart’s were almost broken for a second time.
  3. Would Lewis Hamilton have lost once again if not for the mistake of a fellow racer? I watched the race this year. It seems to me that if Toyota had called in their racer, German guy Timo Glock, for a change of tyres then the German may not have started falling back because he was still on dry tyres when he should have been switched to wet wheels. This gave Lewis the opportunity to overtake him on the penultimate corner and get into fith position – talk about on the wire –  just a kilometer before the finish line of the Brazilian Grand Prix he would have lost the the championship for the second year running. Do we think that there are real issues with Hamilton or just the work of Lady Luck that put’s him in these predicaments?

Point is that Lewis WON – yippee!! The British can be proud of their ninth Formula One champion in twelve years : ) and even more so knowing that Hamilton has reached greatness from humble beginnings. May be even more so as he is the first black formula one champion. But Brazilian Felippe Massa is another one to look out for in the future.

Winslow, 5 others at Browns suffered Staph Infection. What is Staph infection?

Winslow is angry! And so he should be!

I’ve been reading about Winslow ranting about the facilities at Browns, and he’s damn right..

In an ESPN article by one of my fav writers James Walker, Browns pro bowl tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. has revealed that he has been hospitalized because of staph infection (pronounced “Staff”) for the last 2 two weeks.  No one in the Browns team knew about this as the management decided to keep it a secret. Winslow was quoted saying:

“Nobody knew that I had staph on the team because the Browns didn’t want it to get out,” Winslow said. “But it’s my teammates’ right to know what’s going on at the facility to protect them. Their safety is at risk, too, and I didn’t agree with the Cleveland Browns, because they are protecting the organization and not the players.”

Winslow says that this is the 6th case of staph infection at Browns in the last 2 years! Well, either it’s the sport or it is the facilities at Browns. Now since I had never heard of Staph disease (sorry, infection) befoew and considering that this is the 6th case, I wouldn’t play for Browns if I were one of the healthier team members.. 😉

Here’s the original article at ESPN

Whats Staph infection? (Biological term: Staphylococcus)

Staph (again, pronounced “staff”) infection is caused by staphylococcus aureus bacteria. staphylococcus comes from a greek word meaning grapes… and thats what the bacteria look like when seen from a microscope.

How does staph infection happen?

The bacterium (staphylococcus) is so common that 25% people almost always carry the bacterium in their mouth, nose, genitals etc. Problem arises if it enters your blood stream through a cut.

What happens if you have Staph infection?

Generally Staph infections produce pus in the body.  Some examples of Staph infection are:

Folliculitis – Often when you clothes rub against skin, hair follicles get filled with white puss (sounds disgusting)

Boils – On the face, chest, neck or anywhere else, when you have puss filled rounded, heightened skin (c’mon you know what a boil is)

Styes -Have you seen anyone with a swollen upper of lower lid of the eye? I’ve seen some people – again happens because of the hair follicles of eye lashes getting infected.

Impetigo – When kids get red scabby skin or blisters around their mouths or noses?

Abscesses – Pus or normal swelling on the skin or anywhere else in the body.

Food poisoning – Mostly even food poisoning is caused by the staph infection or staphylococcus bacterium.

Other life threatening health problems – In worst cases, it can also cause pneumonia, endocarditis (heart infection), bacteremia (blood infection), toxic shock syndrome and others!! Jesus Christ!

There’s much more info available if you search for staph infection on Google.
