Sports News - Lil Romeo SignsLil Romeo has been doing big things in the music and show business world since the time he was a just a little kid. But lately Romeo has been making it big in another area - basketball. This week, the 6'1" high school senior signed with USC, one of the top college basketball programs in the country. His father, Master P, was a standout college basketball player and came very close to making the NBA in the late '90s.
Sports News - Tyson in Pink?On Tuesday, ex-boxing champion, Mike Tyson, reported to jail, where he served a one day sentence for cocaine possession. The 41-year-old boxer plead guilty to the charge in September for the incident that happened last year in Arizona. He was also sentenced to three years probation and will have to perform 360 hours of community service. The funny part about this whole thing is Tyson will have to wear a black-and-white jump suit and wear pink underwear. So unless you want to look as stupid as Mike, don't get in trouble!
