Rowdy Ronda Rousey should surely arouse more than just some rudimentary interest in whether she’ll have her pretty face busted up in an octagon.
And don’t call her Shirley.
When does the movie career launch for this rebellious female with a clause in her UFC contract?
There’s supposed to be a rep deal with the William Morris Agency already signed, and her peeps have supposedly taken meetings to hear the usual pitches.
How long do we wait to see the next shrewish Steven Segal of the silver screen?
We’re not talking about getting sucker punched by some Hulk Hogan as “Mr. Nanny” career. Yet, there’s no preconceived concussions that she’s going to pull off some Oscar-like “Million Dollar Baby” thespianistic arm bar either.
As she’s primping in the gym waiting for “Cyborg” Santos to slim down to become her next rock ‘em, sock ‘em punch partner, think Rousey would be up for a comingling with Gina Carano, Lindsay Vonn and Laila Ali for a real hell-cat “Charlie’s Angels” remake?
Or at bring her on as a stunt double for Danica Patrick on GoDaddy commercials?
Rousey may not give an “It”-girl thought about all this cinematic concocted commotion, and a career as a live version of Ms Pacman could be enough to satisfy her basic instincts.
So while all that’s in the rewrite mode, would Julia Stiles (older sister of Jennifer Lawrence in “Silver Linings Playbook”) be believeable and available to play the role of Rousey in the story of her life?
== Greg Tomlinson?
== Would Jerry Buss have ever suggested the Lakers offer up Kobe Bryant and his league-topping $30.45 million contract as salary amnesty, under the league rules of a way to avoid some luxury taxes? No.
Yet Mark Cuban can’t wait until a day or two after the legendary owners’ passing to make that morbid suggestion? Yes.
Whatta say Kobe anesthetizes the Mavericks on Sunday morning instead?
== The L.A. cable sports channel that Buss launched in 1985 couldn’t even figure out a way to carry a broadcast of his memorial service Thursday?
== Again, Greg Tomlinson?
== If there’s a golf tournament on my TV so difficult that both Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy didn’t stay around after the first day, at what match point do we give up as well?
It’s not like Woods and McIlroy didn’t get in enough competition at Riviera the week before, right?
== Matt Barkley went to the NFL combine in Indianapolis this weekend not to throw (he says his shoulder still hurts) but to actually grow.
After the latest measurement, it’s listed as a 6-foot-2 ½ quarterback — a half-inch taller than how USC once sized him up.
Is that enough to convince some teams he’s inching up on the Chiefs’ and Cardinals’ draft boards?
== Seriously, Greg Tomlinson?
== Keep an eye on your wallet as you figure out how the ways of this new ticket pricing system the Angels are implementing – where the cost is tied to demand, and can fluctuate right up until a few hours before the first pitch of the game.
If this really is the truest and fairest system, why isn’t it the way stocks are bought and sold on Wall Street?
Or did we just answer that?
== The New York Islanders once signed former No. 1 overall pick Rick DiPietro to a 15-year, $67.5 million contract, but have now released the goaltender.
With eight years left on his deal. And little chance any other team will pick him up.
And you wonder why the Kings might have been not-so-quick about throwing the kitchen sink, as well as the refrigerator with the automatic ice maker, at Jonathan Quick after the playoffs ended last June?
== One of the promotions this year for the Single-A Lancaster JetHawks – aside from the fact its entire roster could be promoted to the parent-club Houston Astros by season’s end – is a scheduled June 21 appearance by Michael Jackson impersonator Mitchell Siordia.
Back by popular demand, the team says. They’ve got to be starting something.
Does that mean the rest of the JetHawks that night wear one batting glove?
And at what point is the team obligated to protect their fans’ well being and tell him to just beat it?
Or, have Greg Tomlinson pinch hit him.
