Venus has surprise pick as ’05 highlight


November 16, 2005

Tennis star Venus Williams says winning her third Wimbledon title was exciting, but it wasn t the best thing that happened to her in 2005.

Cool Web site

Who has more fun than the folks at . The site s intro theme changes weekly depending on the team s opponent. This week: Leave it to Barber, in which Little Mikey Vick can t come out to play when Ronde Barber comes by.

Top-seeded on her list: attending a 1980s-themed prom.

Seriously, it was the best time of my life, she said. I had lace gloves. I was so 80s it was ridiculous; I was disgusted with myself.

Neither Venus nor her sister Serena attended public high school, so Serena threw a party with a high school theme.

We played all kinds of games like bobbing for apples, Venus said. I don t get to do that. It was amazing. I took it so seriously.

Since losing at a tournament in Beijing in September, Venus has resumed college classes in fashion design. Serena filmed an upcoming episode of the NBC medical drama ER.

Said Venus: Life is good.

Trivia time

Infotainment on the cheap

Before the NL MVP was announced yesterday, Tony Gwynn gave The Atlanta Journal-Constitution his MVP top five, with a comment on each:

1. Albert Pujols, Cardinals. Finally!

2. Andruw Jones, Braves. A real, real close second.

3. Derrek Lee, Cubs. Great year, but his team finished out of the hunt.

4. Miguel Cabrera, Marlins. If his team had finished higher, he would be higher on this list.

5. Bobby Abreu, Phillies. See Cabrera.

According to the capsule preview of this week s NFL games, sent out each week by the league, Bills QB J.P. Losman is Venice, CA native, 131 miles south of San Diego.

Dennis Rodman, 44, has signed a two-game contract (May 19-20) with a pro hoops team based in Waterloo (Iowa).

Fans are paying up to $650 for tickets from brokers and online auctions to this week s sold-out tilt between the Bengals and the visiting Colts. Face-value ticket prices range from $49 to $65, AP says.

Marcus Allen and Franco Harris will be among the former NFL players riding on the league s Macy s Thanksgiving Day Parade float in New York.

Parting shot

Mike Bianchi of The Orlando Sentinel:

NASCAR now has a sponsorship deal with Harlequin the company that puts out those racy romance novels. I can hardly wait to read the following passage in the next book:

But Dixie Mae didn t hear what Dale Jr. was saying; she was too busy drowning sublimely in his turquoise eyes. Her body quivered and quaked like it had a bad case of tire stagger. She began overheating like a Petty Enterprises engine block. No, she couldn t do this on the first date. It was too fast. Too dangerous. Then she remembered the words of her daddy, famed dirt-track racer Humpy Cosworth: Sometimes, honey, love needs to come with a restrictor plate.
