I Interview Carmen Electra and Wolf

Carmen Electra, on the red carpet. The first red carpet interview of my life was with a friendly man named Wolf from American Gladiator, whom NBC describes as "230 pounds of primal fury." His particular red carpet trick is to howl like, well, you know. He told me that...

Virginia Tech draped a maroon T-shirt over every chair in the student section Saturday, but a few already had their wardrobe set. They call themselves the Cassell Guard, and...

Patriots at the Food Court

Curious what NFL players do 44 hours before the Super Bowl? Well, if they're named Donte Stallworth and Chad Jackson, they hang out in front of the Panda Express at the Scottsdale Fashion Square food court. There was a group of about eight Patriots there in the Food Court around...

Stacy Keibler and the Beach Bowl: The Video

What follows is a video about all the famous people at yesterday's Beach Bowl, plus a clip of me doing some bastardized insult to the Ickey Shuffle that probably is embarrassing enough to ensure that I'll never watch the video. But you can also see a brief glorious moment of...
