4 Reasons The Old Spice Guy Is Hot

1. He made us love commercials all over again.  

And I say that as someone who doesn't have a television!  I heard so much about the first Old Spice ad that I finally reluctantly, with much eye-rolling, looked it up on YouTube just to see what the fuss was about.  

Surprise!  The fuss was justified!

Commercials have become so obnoxious that even the best special effects are wasted on a jaded audience.  But something about the combination of innovative storyboarding, tongue-in-cheek script, and Isaiah Mustafa's smirking self-confidence makes it all worthwhile.

It's LeBron's Day

Today is the day for the big announcement from LeBron James.

This is the summer time. The Congress is still out on the 4th of July recess, so there isn't a lot of Washington news. The Russian spies seemed not to have been all that effective as spies, so they have limited appeal, and there is a deal to send them home in a swap for one of our spies the Russian have, for the minnows our side caught of theirs. The weather in the East continues to be so darn unpleasant, but how many things can you say about the heat. BP is being BP, and people are tired of talking about BP and not cussing. And so what is left? Lindsay Lohan? LeBron is a better story. Why? Because the hype is better. The drama is better. No Sturm und Drang. And a whole big network, ESPN, is behind him. And he has a mystery going. Which NBA team will get his services?

LeBron James: Show Biz Hot

Show business! Sports is show business. LeBron James is the hottest person in show biz this hot summer. Tonight, Thursday, on ESPN, at 9 p.m., Eastern, Mr James is scheduled to announce the name of the lucky NBA team that for zillions of duckets will be blessed with his services. Yes, America, Mr. LeBron James will announced his free agency decision. A word to President Obama, if you want the attention of the American people, cool it on your day job and get on the professional basketball court. Challenge Kobe to a few baskets, but LeBron, right now is a little too hot. You may fade in the light of his sun. Who wouldn't? Who else could demand a full hour of national television time to announce where he's going to work?

Hot Dog Champ Gets Eaten Up By Police

The Fourth of July is synonymous with many things, but one event is taking over, with the event being the Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island.  Thousands gather to watch grown men and women stuff their faces with hot dogs, and ESPN even broadcasts the festivities.  This year's contest proved to be unlike any other.  The contest itself held to normalcy until the very end.  Joey "Jaws" Chestnut dominated the field, inhaling 54 hot dogs in 10 minutes to win the coveted mustard yellow title belt, but then a figure emerged from the crowd, with it being none other than former-champ, Takeru Kobayashi.  The crowd began to chant, "LET HIM EAT!

All Little Girls Grow Up

Big non announcement. Well, it's an announcement, not big and is non news. Miley Cyrus has split from Hannah Montana. So? Don't all little girls grow up, or are supposed to anyway?

Ms. Cyrus has broken out of the romper room, skipped free of the Disney stables and she is galloping toward where? The playboy mansion? Or something further away from Pluto, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, to Lady GaGa land?

In the video, she looks back on 'Hannah Montana,' the show that brought her fame, and she gets a little serious, wondering, "whether the new child stars of today will actually have it easier than she did."

She spent many years playing her alter ego 'Hannah Montana,' on the TV and on stage. But the question America is asking -- well, some--a few, are asking -- Is Miley Cyrus ready to be just Miley Cyrus? Or does she plan to compete with Lindsay and GaGa, and Britney and Paris Hilton?

The boy forgot he was just a toy.

Hot dogs -- Eating hot dogs on the 4th of July -- what is more American than that? Competition is what America is about every day.

The former hot dog speed-eating champion of the world, Takeru Kobayashi, was he hot dogging it on the 4th of July? Or was he barking like a lonesome dog who has lost his bone? He is Japanese, but was he being as American as one can get, standing on principles on the 4th of July?

The gentleman was arrested at an event that he once dominated. He was the six-time champion. The event -- the speed hot dog eating competition on the 4th of July at Coney Island, New York City, USA. He did not compete this year, because of a contract dispute. At the end of the competition, right after the winner was announced, Mr Kobayashi tried to get on the stage to make a statement, and was dragged off to the slammer. See the video.

Serena Williams Is Hot

She wins and she wins, and she wins easily.

Serena Williams is the best at what she does. She is the best women's tennis player in the world. She easily won at Wimbledon today, Saturday, July 3rd, dominating her opponent in 6-3, 6-2 match, winning her fourth Wimbledon singles championship. Her opponent was Vera Zvonareva of Russia. The victory was Serena Williams' 13th Grand Slam title.

I don't want to sound sexiest, but appreciative, when I say Serena Williams is not only a very, very good women's tennis player --- again, the best in the world --- she is very sexy. She is a full bodied female athlete. To the male viewer, sho has eye appeal. That appeal and her skills on the tennis court makes her the most widely watched and followed lady tennis player in recent memory, if not in the history of the sport. She is a beautiful lady to watch, as she plays the game of tennis.
