Walker Manzke lost his job at a hedge fund and a significant amount of money thanks to Bernard Madoff. And probably a lot of friends too, since he encouraged others to invest in Madoff’s $50 billion Ponzi scheme. But now Manzke has come up with a way to get his revenge: selling golf balls with Madoff’s smirking face on them.
As MY FOX reports, For the low, low price of $17.95, you can buy three golf balls with a picture of Madoff on them. Someone should send a sleeve or two to Mets owner Fred Wilpon, or maybe Sandy Koufax - I suspect that they both have good reasons to want to get some revenge on Madoff (although thanks to Madoff, it might only be at the local public courses instead of a private club).
• Michael Phelps - from marijuana smoker to motivational speaker. Maybe he can motivate himself not to skip the 2012 Olympics.
• And Mike should have a talk with Terry Glenn, the ex-Dallas Cowboy who was taken in for wandering high & naked through the halls of a hotel.
• As if sports agents weren’t sleazy enough, now they’re getting caught collecting child porn.
• LeBron James doubles his pleasure & triples his fun by going off in a 52-point performance at MSG Wednesday night.

Bernie Madoff’s list of cursed clients numbers 13,567, so it’s no surprise that there’s some well-known sports figures on it.
Individual client names were released today, and heading the sports celebs is Sandy Koufax.
So what was Koufax’s connection to Madoff?
NEXT ON HIS XMAS LIST: THE SPACE SHUTTLE (LOW MILES!) The ASSOCIATED PRESS finds out what to get the man who has everything, Tiger Woods, for Christmas.
Excerpt: “There aren’t many autographs he wants in return, but Woods recently got a prized possession — a baseball signed by Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax.“Woods on the landing a signed ball from the out-of-sight southpaw: “How about that? I’ve been a Dodger fan my entire life, and Koufax is the man.”
Woods, who rarely signs autographs himself except under the auspicies of Upper Deck, “asked an official at Upper Deck that if he ever ran into Koufax, would he ask for an autograph. The next time Woods saw him, the Upper Deck rep handed him a baseball.”Woods only other autograph? Signed boxing trunks (circa 1977) from Muhammad Ali. Woods: “I had never asked for any autograph ever, and I said to him, ‘Could you please sign anything, a paper, anything, please?’ He was shaking (from Parkinson’s Disease) and said, ‘I’ll take care of it.’ All of a sudden, I had a a pair of trunks. He said, ‘I won’t be needing these anymore.’ I’ve got those hanging on my wall.”
And hanging right next to that? A Phil Mickelson game-worn brassiere (sadly, unsigned).
