– FANHOUSE informs us that WNBA MVP Candace Parker is pregnant and might miss the WNBA season. It’s waaaaay too easy to make fun of the WNBA, so I’m just going to say congratulations to the happy couple. (She’s married to the Kings’ Shelden Williams.) [FANHOUSE]

– Apparently, having access to hundreds (or thousands?) of adoring UCLA co-eds isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. Or so says former Bruin and current Laker Jordan Farmar, who is apparently oblivious to how dumb that’s going to sound to 99% of red-blooded American males. [SPORTSbyBROOKS]

“Rob Parker, you’re an idiot.”

Rob Parker of the Detroit News has made a name for himself with this recent encounter with Lions head coach Rod Marinelli:

I actually had the opportunity to meet Rob and converse with him multiple times during Piston games when I worked for Sports Radio AM1130 WDFN in Detroit. He’s not a bad guy or an idiot, but he did make a poor choice by getting personal with Marinelli. If you want to ask tough questions, then ask tough questions. But don’t ask the man if he wishes his daughter would have married a better defensive coordinator, regardless of whether or not you preface it by saying, “On a lighter note.”

It was wrong.
