Off Base: Hall of Fame drag; off with the lingerie

5. One-man effort

Cheerleading is typically a woman's domain. And they are pretty damn great at it. But one man, Sacha Heppell, attempted to change all this by becoming the first male cheerleader in Denver Broncos' history. According to the Denver Broncos cheerleading department states anyone, female or male, can try out for the squad. Despite his best cheerful efforts, Heppell did not make the cut.

This is not Sacha Heppell, but it is a man, his dreams and a great attitude.

4. A-Rod is such a drag (queen)

If it's up to the producers of the upcoming indie movie about Salvador Dali, The Surrealist, MLB all-star Alex Rodriguez will be discarding his uniform in exchange for a beautiful dress. A-Rod has been approached to play a "stunning, leggy drag queen" as Dali's "factotum social secretary," Potassa.

3. Caddie pokes gator

During the RBC Heritage golf tournament last week, an alligator gave a new meaning to the phrase 'stay away from the hazard.' Just off the green on the par-5, 15th hole, Brian Gay was preparing his next shot when the gator decided to sunbathe near his ball. Gay's caddie Kip Henley poked at the gator with a sand-trap rake until it scurried off into the pond.

2. Less lingerie

Maybe it's just a reason for me to 'research' the Lingerie Football League, but there is sad news to report. The beautiful, busty, hard-hitting athletes of the LFL will be sitting out the 2012 season to expand the sport worldwide and re-focus it as a warm-weather game. Plans are to strap on the garters once again in April 2013.

1. Miss-spelled words

John Calipari and his Kentucky Wildcats basketball team won the 2012 National Championship. The team and coach Calipari are receiving well-deserved congratulatory handshakes and accolades. Unfortunately, the kind folks of Pikeville, Ky. granted Calipari a plaque with a couple spelling errors.

Can you spot them?
