Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis recorded 13 tackles in his final home game, a playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts. While he hasn't decided on a post-football career yet, there is talk about him starring in a new show, “Dancing with the Scars.”

Free-agent designated hitter Lance Berkman once criticized the Texas Rangers, but said he is prepared to “let bygones be bygones” if he passes a physical to finalize a one-year deal with the team. Bygones are now going for $10 million per year.
Houston Rockets rookie Royce White was suspended by the team for “refusing to provide services” when he wouldn't accept his assignment to the NBA D-League. He has an anxiety disorder that may or may not be related to fear of back-to-back games in Fort Wayne and/or Erie, Pa.
