    Posted by Scott Hanson
    Trace Returning To Celebrity Apprentice
    On Sunday, Trace Adkins is headed back to the boardroom, where he'll serve as Donald Trump's eyes and ears on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice. As Boardroom Advisor to "The Donald," Adkins will oversee both celebrity teams as they provide image makeovers for country artists Emily West and Luke Bryan. Bryan will perform his single, "Rain Is A Good Thing," and West will sing her single, "Blue Sky," on the show. Emily shares, "Spending a few days hanging out with the cast of Celebrity Apprentice was really like a dream sequence, only I was awake. I kept saying to myself, 'Soak up every single moment...and look good at all times!'" The episode airs at 9 PM, ET, directly opposite the CBS telecast of The 45th Annual ACM Awards
     
    Adkins was a runner-up to winner Piers Morgan on the popular reality series in 2008. As a result of his appearance on the show, he has raised more than a half-million dollars for his charity, The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN). On May 10, his new single, "This Ain't No Love Song," will be released to country radio, with his first album for Show Dog-Universal Music to follow in August.  
  • Too much information

    Veteran Korean pitcher Chan Ho Park's long Major League career has landed him on the New York Yankees this year, but his first appearance out of the bullpen didn't go so well. But in his defense, he was sick. Reporters wanted to know more details about his illness, so that's what he gave them, albeit a little too much information.

  • Canadian Women's Gold medal Celebration

    Canadian Womans Hockey Celebration

    I say these ladies have worked hard and deserve to celebrate!   Congratulations to our Canadian Friends!

    Picture and Story from Fox News   http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2010/02/26/ioc-probe-canadian-womens-hockey-celebration/

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The women of the Canadian hockey team politely accepted their gold medals and waved to an adoring crowd. And then the real celebration began.

    More than half an hour after they beat the United States 2-0 on Thursday, the players came back from the locker room and staged a party on ice -- swigging from bottles of champagne, guzzling beer and smoking cigars.

    In a sport that Canada invented, there was never an option besides gold, and with it finally in hand, the home team let loose.

    Meghan Agosta and Marie-Philip Poulin posed wearing goofy grins. Rebecca Johnston actually tried to drive the ice-resurfacing machine. Haley Irwin poured champagne into the mouth of Tessa Bonhomme, gold medals swinging from both their necks.

    The celebration raised eyebrows at the IOC, which said it would look into the matter. Informed of the antics by The Associated Press, Gilbert Felli, the IOC's executive director of the Olympic Games, said it was "not what we want to see."

    "I don't think it's a good promotion of sport values," he said. "If they celebrate in the changing room, that's one thing, but not in public. We will investigate what happened."

    Poulin, who scored both goals, doesn't turn 19 -- legal drinking age in British Columbia -- until next month. The drinking age in Alberta, where the Canadian team trains, is 18. Photos showed Poulin on the ice with a beer in her hand.

    "We understand that they were asked to go back onto the playing field after the stadium had emptied to take a photo," IOC spokesman Mark Adams said. "We understand that some people may have felt that their behavior was over-exuberant."

    Steve Keough, a spokesman for the Canadian Olympic Committee, said the COC had not provided the alcohol nor initiated the party.

    "In terms of the actual celebration, it's not exactly something uncommon in Canada," he said.

    While the committee does not condone irresponsibility, Keough said, "I think Canadians understand it's quite an emotional moment for our team. It was not our intention to go against any IOC protocols."

    Not even uncommon at these Olympics. After Jon Montgomery won a gold medal for Canada in skeleton, he walked through the streets of Whistler guzzling from a pitcher of beer that he gripped with two hands.

    American Scotty Lago, who won a bronze in halfpipe, voluntarily left the games after a photo surfaced of a woman kneeling below his waist to kiss the medal.
