The manager for the woman at the center of the Brett Favre controversy said Wednesday afternoon he has been in touch with the National Football League about Jenn Sterger possibly cooperating with the league's investigation of Favre, but that no decision has been made whether she will consent to be interviewed in the probe.
CHICAGO -- Yet another prominent NFL quarterback is facing a potential violation of the league's personal conduct policy, and once again NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is ruling out nothing when it comes to any discipline he might hand down.
Athlete of the Week: Alexis Thompson. While most kids her age are sitting at home watching reruns of High School Musical, 12-year-old "Lexi" has become the youngest qualifier ever to play in the U.S. Women's Open. The 5-foot-6 South Florida golfer hopes to play well and follow in the footsteps of her brother Nick, who is currently second in the Nationwide Tour money list. One thing's for sure, though, the competition at this level may be tough, but Lexi insists her main strategy at Thursday's competition is to just "have fun." Oh, to be 12 again.
Athlete of the Week: In a game straight out of a Kevin Costner movie, Detroit's Justin Verlander "cleared the mechanism" and pitched a no-hitter against the Brewers Tuesday night. He just made some fantasy baseball player's week, and pissed off a handful of others. Congrats to Verlander for the historic accomplishment.
Athlete of the Week: It must not be easy being Ashley Judd's husband, but this week it certainly isn't a bad role to be in. Not only are you married to one of the hottest actresses around (not to mention a huge sports fan), but you'r also the winner of the 2007 Indianapolis 500. So kudos to Dario Franchitti. He may not have gotten his day in the "sun," (thanks to those nasty afternoon thunderstorms), but at least he gets to wake up next to Judd every morning.
