ESPN SportsCenter Fired Another Intern This Afternoon [PHOTO]

ESPN SportsCenter Fired Another Intern This Afternoon [PHOTO]

Nevermind the fact that ESPN had Dwight Gooden on this afternoon to chat about Jeremy Lin's sensation in NYC. That's right, the WWL has burned through all of its other possible guests and we're down to Doc. So imagine our surprise when Chris McKendry started rapping with the Mets legend and the screen said Tony Stewart was on the line. Nope, wrong black guy. Nope, Tony Stewart wasn't a former Met or Yankee. Nope, it didn't appear again.

Newspaper Columnist: What If Josh Hamilton Was Black Guy With Booze, Poon Issues?

Josh Hamilton broke his TV interview silence yesterday for the Glenn Beck TV channel. No, silly, Glenn wasn't available to do the interview so religious right tough guy James Robison handled the gig. You might remember how much emphasis Hamilton puts on 'God' and his religion. So the two sat down for a chat and the Dallas media did their thing. Mac Engel of the Dallas Morning News penned a piece that asked what we've been wondering. What if Josh were black? JUMP!

Mike Tyson, What Are You Doing In The Seattle SuperSonics Locker Room? [Morning Twitpic]

Meet the Sacramento Kings Seattle SuperSonics new general manager. Mike Tyson was at MSG last night for the Jeremy Lin experience, but the former world champ didn't get to see a scoring outburst from Linsanity. He'd have to settle for 10 pts & 13 dimes in a 100-85 Knicks win. The victory - 7th in a row - gets NY back to .500. Don't think Vegas isn't taking notice. The Knicks are now 30/1 to win the NBA Finals. Let's get rolling!

Either they're dating or their dogs are dating because we've never seen more doggy sleepovers at Longoria's place in Twitter history. Edmondson's dachshund, Molly. Longoria's bull terrier, Jango.
