Page 1 Consider (07/07)

  • Coach Is First Class: It's no secret I'm not a big fan of Andy Murray. But that coach of his, Miles Maclagan? Woof! (Insert balls in the face joke HERE.) He kind of reminds me of Slade on "The Real Housewives of Orange County" only without that annoying chick surgically attached to his wallet. Erwin's banking on a shirtless "training" session this summer and I second that emotion. (Tennis Served Fresh)

  • Oscar Race 2009: I guess now that there will be 10 Best Picture nominees, you can never start making your Academy Award predictions too soon. (Film Experience)

  • Cherry Bombshell: God, I totally take back what I said about casting Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie in the biopic about the Runaways. She and Kristen Stewart, as Joan Jett, look f**king hot! (Total Film)

  • Who's Bad? I happen to agree with Long Island Rep. Peter King that the world is a safer place for children now that Michael Jackson is dead. (Sorry. I know it's not nice to speak ill of the dead, but it's true.) However, it should be noted that I feel the same way about most Republican lawmakers. (NYP)

  • The Cat's Meow: And I thought Larry was weird for not being afraid of water! (OMG Blog!)

  • See: Cunanan, Andrew: Since when do reporters not know the difference between a "serial killer" and a "spree killer"? (NYT)

  • Harried William: OK, so it was one thing when we realized that despite being a redhead, Harry was the hotter prince. But does William have to keep getting incrementally less attractive as Harry gets sexier? (The Sun)

  • Hell Hath No Fury: It seems retired football great Steve McNair's 20-year-old Iranian mistress operates just like the leaders in her homeland: once you've been proven guilty of something -- in this case, lying about leaving your wife -- you're instantly sentenced to death. (NYP)

  • Dissociative Identity Disorder: Just how bat-shit crazy is Kelly Killoren Bensimon, who just signed on for a second season of "The Real Housewives of New York City"? She recently told W magazine that the producers edited her to make her look bad "because I'm so down-to-earth they're like, 'OK we have to pump her up a little bit because otherwise people are not going to believe'" how nice she really is. (And you know what? She understand and is OK with that.) Um. Earth to Owl-land. You're a delusional lunatic and you're making an ass of yourself. (And please don't stop!) Kudos to Pretty on the Outside blogger David Gilmore for having one of his drawings included in the piece. (Pretty on the Outside)

  • Killer Serb: I told you Viktor Troicki was hot! (Charmants)

  • Bittersweet: Getting her wallet back 27 years after it was stolen must have been fun for Ruth Bendik -- until she compared her old and new ID photos. (NYP)

  • DNA Match: Who wants to go to Buenos Aires with Rob and Ryan? (Ethan Says)

    I dunno Kenneth...you really seem to have a thing about aging (see your items today on Prince William and the lady who got her stolen wallet back 27 years later). Are you afraid of getting older? Never forget the inscription on the men's room mirror at the defunct FoodBar on 7th Avenue: "Beauty soon fades...beauty soon fades..."

    For a smart guy, you seem to have a blind spot when it comes to getting older. We are all going to get there someday, like it or not...

    Oh, dear sweet anonymous one: Lighten up, I'm just being silly. I appreciate the "smart guy" comment -- now trust me, I own a mirror and am keenly aware that we are all getting older! :-)
