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.

The Ray star was recently honoured with a parade in his native Terrell, Texas and Foxx was proud to bring his now 14-year-old daughter Corinne to see where he grew up.
But Foxx admits he was forced to play down his embarrassment when welcoming officials had failed to correct an obvious spelling mistake in a banner celebrating his return.
He recalls, "If anybody knows Terrell, it's a good country town... The first time I took my daughter with me to Terrell, we were driving in and they spelled 'Congratulations' wrong. It was like, 'Congradulations' with a 'D'. I said, 'Baby, don't worry about it. That's just Terrell.'"
The film follows the same tired action genre step by step. Ex-con and single dad O2 (Tyrese Gibson) is trying to go straight for the sake of his young son Junior. But when the kid is kidnapped in what seems to be a typical carjacking O2 has to pull out all the stops to get him back. Turns out O2 had some nefarious dealings with a gang overlord named Big Meat (The Game) who likes to hack off people’s body parts with a machete. And now Meat wants some payback taking for ransom the only thing O2 cares about in the entire world [sniffle]. So what’s a guy to do? Pit rival gang leaders against each other hook up with a beautiful street hustler (Meagan Good) rob safety deposit boxes and get caught in an extended car chase that’s what. "It's either all or nothing " realizes O2. Very prophetic. Waist Deep has got some great character names--Meat O2 Coco Lucky Junior. Too bad most of the performances can’t live up to them. Tyrese (Four Brothers) does try his best though as the hunky O2 making a convincing albeit a tad stiff attempt at playing a father who’s whole life is his son. Good (Roll Bounce) gets to wear tight sexy clothes and strut around as Coco O2’s accomplice and eventual love interest as they rob banks Bonnie and Clyde style. Larenz Tate (Crash) plays Lucky O2’s unreliable cousin who actually isn’t lucky at all caught between a rock and hard place. And then there’s Meat played by big-time rapper The Game in his feature debut. With a battered face and covered in tattoos The Game certainly looks like one mean badass wielding a mad machete. Thankfully he doesn’t have to do much more than that. Here’s a few words of advice to would-be actors who want to play effective bad guys: Less is more. It’s movies like these that really give South Central L.A. a bad rep—shoot-outs in the middle of the street in broad daylight the carjacks the depravity the sad stories of little kids getting shot. It’s not exactly a warm and fuzzy place. Of course actor-turned-director/co-writer Vondie Curtis-Hall (best known for his numerous TV guest spots) doesn’t want it to be showing the grit in all its glory and collecting a cast from the area who could lend some credibility to the surroundings. But Hall needs a few more lessons in how to craft a well-thought action movie. The script is hackneyed beyond the usual taking bits not only from Bonnie and Clyde but also Thelma and Louise Boyz N the Hood--and even a little Shawshank Redemption. Hall’s camerawork is also too frenetic at times almost dizzyingly so with unnecessary close ups and choppy sequences. That isn’t to say some of the gun play and car chases aren’t exciting enough. There just seems to be a lack of experience overall.
