With seven victories and another major championship, Tiger Woods won the PGA Player of the Year award Tuesday for the third straight season and the ninth time in his 11 years since he turned pro. The only questions now are whether he’s playing his best golf, and how much better he can get.

Happy birthday Jamie Foxx who turns 40 today.
“I read Cosmo,” says Michael Yo [photo], his face lighting up with a playful grin. “I’m not gonna lie. I read Glamour. My job is to relate to women.” Once more interested in sports stats than dissecting the latest celebrity escapade, Yo has no qualms about losing some of his “man card” in order to do his job.

Snowglobe premieres on ABC Family, Saturday, December 15 and stars Christina Milian, Lorraine Bracco, Josh Cooke, Matt Keeslar and Ron Canada. I hear it’s a film with a multi-racial cast with no mention of it. I think they call it creative casting.
