TMZOne of the hot basketball playing thong models in the video Gilbert Arenas used to bash the WNBA says Gilbert is NOT entirely wrong … the league needs to sex it up if it hopes to survive. …

Her name is Melody Rae –who played at the U of Tennessee at Martin — and she tells TMZ Sports, “I’m all about empowering women … and if wearing sexy attire helps to promote the game in any way I’m all for it.”

At the end of the day, Melody says she just wants more people to watch women’s basketball.

“The women in the WNBA are prominent athletes that should have their arenas filled. I’m glad our video shed light on a league that deserves it and I support them whole heartedly.”

Like I said Wednesday when Gilbert Arenas decided to post his rant and take a flamethrower to any chance he’ll ever have of drawing an NBA paycheck again, I won’t pretend to be a WNBA fan. But I’m nothing if not a believer in empowering women. So I applaud Melody Rae’s efforts here.

Maybe it’s not always the fashionable thing in some circles to for a guy to take a feminist stance like this. But I don’t care. I’m going to go forth with the courage of my convictions and stand beside my sister Melody in this struggle. Women in the WNBA are prominent athletes. They should have their arenas filled (small “a” arenas, not Gilbert). And if Melody showing her dribble-drive skills and her perimeter shooting game in her underpants will shed light on a league that deserves it, well then by the goddess, I support her efforts. And I encourage more basketball-playing thong models to join her in the fight for equality. When she sinks that jumper, she scores a victory for all of us.

I wouldn’t mind chalking Mark Wahlberg’s ability to sink a full-court shot with a football to his athleticism, to his Masshole South Shore roots, to his time with The Funky Bunch or any number of other factors. But ours is a relationship built entirely on trust. So let’s just level with one another and admit we know what makes a Hollywood actor suddenly develop hyper-accurate football skills:

Tom Brady is so talented, it’s contagious. He just emits awesomeness from his man parts to the point that even momentary exposure to gives you superpowers. It’s got the power of the Ark of the Covenant, except that instead of melting your face it makes you throw perfect spirals and hit any target. And like the Ark, any army that carries that thing before it becomes invincible. Let’s just hope Brady keeps only showing it to decent, loyal Boston fans like Wahlberg, because we can’t afford to have power like that fall into the hands of the enemy.

PR WebToday veteran actor Zack Ward, who played “Scut Farkus” in the holiday classic “A Christmas Story,” published a new commentary on the demise of Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) and a better way forward.

“Sports as a New Asset Class That Will Create Jobs, Reform Education and Protect Integrity”

Summary:

New York moves closer to victory in its battle against daily fantasy sports, as daily fantasy sports moves closer to its demise.

Daily Fantasy Sports is a market, not a game. Like any market it is possible that skill plays a role. That doesn’t make it non-gambling. … Sports betting and daily fantasy sports are gambling.

This ought to bring the whole daily fantasy sports controversy to bed for good. The battle lines are drawn. You’re either with me and all other good, freedom-loving people who support the rights of all individuals to enjoy themselves in a way that respects the rights of others, or you’re with Scut Farkus.

You have two choices. Do you want to keep the government out of your fantasy sports? Or do you want to side with the bully who made Ralphie Parker’s life miserable? The scourge of Cleveland Street. The one with the yellow eyes. (So help me, God. Yellow eyes.) The sinister hatemonger who twisted Flick’s arm behind his back and made him holler “Uncle!” over and over again. The coonskin hat-wearing maniac who unleashed his toady Grover Dill upon the innocent kids of Warren G. Harding school.

Let’s face it. In our world, you are either a bully, a toady, or one of the nameless rabble of victims. And I for one am done being bullied. Hands off my DFS, Zack Ward. Or get ready for repeat of the Scut Farkus Affair, as it came to be known:
