Breaking News Gayle Benson says she has no plans to change her title as "owner" of the New Orleans Saints and the NO Pelicans ... but insists she's sensitive to the concerns of the players. Gayle's late husband, Tom Benson, bought the Saints in 1985 and the Pelicans in 2012 -- and she took over when he passed away in March 2018. As we previously reported, several NBA teams and the NBA league office are moving away from the term "owner" out of racial sensitivity ... so the New Orleans Advocate asked Benson if she plans on following suit. Benson told the Advocate she has no plans on making a title change -- though she considers herself "less of an owner and more of a caretaker of incredible assets." She also issued a statement saying she hopes players aren't offended by the "owner" title -- and she's open to listening to their concerns. "As with any word, phrase or expression ... interpretations can be perceived differently," Benson said. "That is in … [Read more...] about Saints’ Gayle Benson Says She’ll Stick With ‘Owner’ Title
EXCLUSIVE Marcus Stroman just admitted to TMZ Sports he wants to pitch for the Yankees ... telling us, "One day." Of course, the superstar pitcher is still a member of Toronto's squad, and he says he's "focused on my time with the Blues Jays now." But, with the Yanks reportedly interested in the 28-year-old NY native ... he made it clear to our camera guy before hittin' the Blue Jays team bus Wednesday -- he'd be fine with the move!! Stroman has previously hinted he's down to rock the pinstripes ... telling a group of reporters earlier this week that he's "built for the bright lights." Unclear what the Yankees are willing to offer for Stroman -- who has a 3.04 ERA and 77 strikeouts in 17 starts this season -- but they do desperately need a starting pitcher for the second half of the season. Could Stroman's clear willingness to be a Yankee help move trade talks along?? Stay tuned ... … [Read more...] about Marcus Stroman Says He’d Love To Pitch For Yankees ‘One Day’
EXCLUSIVE NBA veteran Allen Crabbe -- who was just traded to the ATL Hawks -- was arrested for DUI on the Sunset Strip late Tuesday night ... and TMZ Sports has the video. We're told cops noticed the 27-year-old was "straddling lanes" around 11:30 PM -- so they pulled him over ... and during the stop, the officer suspected he was drunk. The 6'6", 210 pounder was asked to step out of the car to perform a field sobriety test -- which he did --- and while it didn't appear he bombed it (based on the video we shot) ... the cops still felt he was under the influence. In fact, we're told he blew a .08 -- which is EXACTLY the legal limit in California ... so Crabbe was arrested and booked for misdemeanor Driving Under the Influence. We're told Crabbe couldn't have been more cooperative with police. He was taken to a nearby station where he was held for a few hours. We're told he's currently in the process of being released. We spoke to someone close to Crabbe who … [Read more...] about NBA’s Allen Crabbe Arrested for DUI On Sunset Strip
EXCLUSIVE Tom Brady's avocado ice cream is the NY Jets of dessert ... as in, IT SUUUUCKS! ... at least according to Tom's #1 target Julian Edelman. Tom has raved about the avo ice cream for years -- and even featured the recipe for the alleged treat in his book, "The TB12 Method." Per the legendary QB, the healthy confection calls for an avocado, some cashews, some coconut, some dates, some cacao powder and water. Brady's said of it in the past that it's "just as delicious but much healthier" than normal ice cream. Sure. So, how does it REALLY taste!?!? We asked Jules ... and he hit us with a truth bomb!!! "I DON'T LIKE IT." That's it. Short statement. But, to the point. We finally have our answer. You're welcome, America. … [Read more...] about Julian Edelman Poo-Poos Tom Brady’s Avocado Ice Cream!
EXCLUSIVE NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns was looking to make a fashion statement on Rodeo Drive on Monday ... so he busted out a Colin Kaepernick jersey! The 7'0" center for the Minnesota Timberwolves was doing some shopping in Beverly Hills (he had a giant Louis Vuitton bag in his hand), where our photog spotted the giant #7 jersey walking down the street. "Kap's the man," the 23-year-old told us. It's not the first time Towns has used fashion -- football jerseys in particular -- to make a statement on social issues ... remember, he rocked a "Free Meek Mill" jersey to the Super Bowl back in 2018. Oh, and also ... FUN QUESTION!!! We also asked Karl -- who's MASSIVELY TALL -- if he has to get all of his clothes custom made or if he can ever buy a suit off the rack. Let's put it this way ... good thing he's rich! … [Read more...] about NBA’s Karl-Anthony Towns, ‘Colin Kaepernick’s the Man’
