Catholic school: Play against a girl? We forfeit!

The boys' baseball team at a Catholic school in Phoenix refused to participate in the state finals because a girl plays on the opposing team.  That school says it doesn't want any part of co-ed sports. 

Freshman Paige Sultzbach is good enough to play second base on the varsity team at Mesa Prep.  She grew up playing softball, but when she got to high school, she didn't have a choice because Mesa Prep does not have a girls softball team.  So she went out and made the boys team.  But when Paige and Mesa Prep got to the state finals, Our Lady of Sorrows, a fundamentalist Catholic School, refused to play a team with a girl on it.

Athletes get naked for 'ESPN the Magazine'

ESPN The Magazine’s “Body Issue” is here… let the controversy begin! It is extremely revealing… Extremely! There are four different covers featuring soccer star Hope Solo, Olympic Snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, NBA rookie-of-the-year Blake Griffin and New York Met Jose Reyes. Along with those 4, there are 18 other athletes who pose very nude, with their naughty parts barely covered in the “Bodies We Want” section. The difference between the Body Issue and Sports Illustrated’s annual “Swimsuit Issue” is that this issue is said to celebrate athletes, not models. And you probably never thought you’d hear this: SI’s Swimsuit Issue features much more clothing than The Body Issue.

Tiger Woods has signed his first major endorsement deal since his marriage scandal… and this one is a biggie! Rolex has announced a partnership with the embattled golfer.
