Jock Tapped Eliza Dushku: Stay Thirsty, My Friend

Rick Fox is the latest athlete to take a number for actress Eliza Dushku. The former NBA player is now dating Dushku, who boasts a list of pro jock boyfriends longer than the test line used on Animal Planet’s River Monsters.

(Translation)

This week Dushku, after spotting reality show actress Vienna Girardi eyeing Fox during a telecast of Dancing With The Stars, inexplicably lashed out at Girardi on Twitter. (Inspired by her stint as Sean Avery’s love interest?) Read more…

Mexican Surfer Rick Fox May Stop On-Air Cameos

We can’t help it, we love Rick Fox. The man whose career never should have lasted long enough to parachute onto title teams with Shaq never fails to bring intrigue, whether he’s on the set of some preposterous soap opera or on a pre-game show. Lately, the scripts he’s been delivering on Fox Sports West’s “Lakers Live” pre- and post-game shows have been better than soap operas anyway. So we’re begging that his Twitter updates claiming he may quit the whole broadcasting biz are a preliminary overreaction to some out of control criticism.

As SI.com’s FAN NATION first pointed out, Fox’s Monday night routine was pretty bizarre, even if that’s precisely what made it so captivating. First, he unzipped his sweatshirt and screamed “Wolverine!” during the pre-game show. Then, after the Lakers eliminated the Jazz, he went into Mexican celebration mode, screaming out “Orale, orale!” repeatedly, before asking if anyone had “ever seen a Mexican surf?” while he pretended to ride wives and hummed “Wipeout!

All in all, those were the only two moments of moderately captivating television on “Lakers Live” all week, so we don’t see what’s wrong with increasing Fox’s role on the show.

• And we already have a suggestion for next year’s cover girl - Rick Fox’s foxy sister Jeanene.

• But will we soon see full nudity in the sports mag’s annual edition? That could be a reason why the Laker Girls turned down a chance to pose for a SI photoshoot.

• We expected to A-Rod to come out sooner or later, but little did we know it would be about past steroid use. And who spilled the beans first? An alleged SI stalker? His ex-wife? No wonder he needed an escape to the Bahamas with two hottie companions.

Rick Fox’s Sister Is A Model, And Pretty Damn Hot

I’m going to go ahead and break a Man Law here and say that I’d like to do bad things to another guy’s sister. In this case, the guy is Rick Fox, so it’s OK because professional athletes aren’t real people.

Jeanene Fox

The hot sister in question is Jeanene Fox, who is too hot, too visible, and related to someone too famous to have gone under the radar this long. Let’s do what we can to rectify that.

(More slick pics of Rick’s sis after the jump.)
