Sports and celebrities can make some strange bedfellows. Being a pro football player means that there are often some choice celebrities who might want to spend...ahem...time with them. These pairings, though, left us way beyond scratching our heads and propelled us into "WTF?" territory.
1. Brian Urlacher/Paris HiltonThis giant of a football player and a heiress who generally preferred to date Greek shipping tycoons. Yeah, I think even the paparazzi were left generally confused. Fortunately for everyone involved, it fizzled quite quickly.
2. Tony Romo/Jessica Simpson
Cowboys fans still howl at this pair, especially since Romo blew off team workouts in a playoff bye week to go to Cabo with Simpson. Yes, Dallas then lost, but if you had a chance to go to a beach with someone like Simpson, you'd do it. Don't lie. At least Romo avoided the Tuna/Chicken question.
3. Tila Tequila/Shawne MerrimanA raucous party girl and a violent-minded NFL player. Where could it go wrong? Well, there were domestic violence incidents. Yeah, we could see that coming a mile away.
4. Jamie-Lynn Sigler/Mark SanchezThey didn't last too long. Maybe the late James Gandolfini threatened to whack Sanchez if he didn't treat her right. Remarkably, around the time they broke up, Sanchez's football game went to sleep with the fishes.
5. Carmella DeCesare/Jeff GarciaFormer teammate Terrell Owens called Garcia gay. He sure showed Owens by marrying a former Playboy Playmate and WWE Diva. Garcia showed that he probably liked getting bodyslammed on the football field and at home.

Lynn D. 'Buck' Compton passed away in Burlington, Washington on Saturday (25Feb12) following a heart attack.
Born in Los Angeles, Compton enrolled in the Army at the age of 21 and was awarded a Silver Star and Purple Heart for his courageous efforts as a first lieutenant in Easy Company after he and his unit parachuted into France on D-Day in 1944.
Compton's military exploits were captured and brought to life by actor Neal McDonough in the hit U.S. TV miniseries Band of Brothers.
Minority Report star McDonough remained in contact with the war hero even after the programme wrapped and he subsequently named his six-year-old son Morgan 'Little Buck' in his honour.
Compton also had a very successful legal career - he led the team that prosecuted Robert F. Kennedy's alleged killer Sirhan B. Sirhan and he was appointed to the 2nd District Court of Appeal by former President Ronald Regan. He served as a judge for 20 years.
