Mr. Owens is just a Big Joke Now

At the least....at one time Terrell Owens was always entertaining...a good sound bite.

Now.....he's coming across as just another dead beat dad.

A joke.

So.....Mr. Owens....you chose not to wear a condom....got your rocks off.....made babies.

Time to pay the piper.

You will get no sympathy from us.

Terrell Owens
No Shirt, No Shoes
... No Child Support

There's a damn good chance Terrell Owens will be sentenced to JAIL if he once again blows off his child support hearing in Atlanta on Thursday ... but T.O. didn't seem to care this weekend because there was a BEACH PARTY in Malibu!!

Smiling like he wasn't $20k behind in child support payments, Owens took off his shirt and posed up with "Dancing with the Stars" pro Derek Hough and "Extra" host Maria Menounos at the Chapstick Beach House.

Just a few days before the party, Owens got himself into some hot water with an ATL judge after no-showing at a child support hearing. Owens allegedly owes $20k in back payments to the mother of his 7-year-old daughter.

Terrell's lawyer took responsibility for his client's no-show -- blaming it on a simple miscommunication. But according to reports, the judge was PISSED and has threatened to lock up the former NFL star if he misses the next hearing, scheduled for Thursday July 19.

NIce abs tho.

A ...Tainted....Legacy

A tainted legacy....at the least...Joe Paterno and his legacy will take a hit.    Penn State will take a hit.

When did he know?   How much did he know?   Why didn't he go to the authorities?  Did he cover this up?

So many questions......so few answers.

Joe Paterno......is dead.   He can no longer answer the questions.

But other people are still digging....still asking....still wanting to know.

Things are not well......at .....Penn State:

 And you know our peeps....at TMZ.com.......are all over this:

Joe Paterno
Report Finds Paterno
Aided Sandusky Cover-Up

Breaking News
Joe Paterno participated in a 13-year conspiracy to hide Jerry Sandusky's sexual crimes against children from authorities ...  so says a new report issued by investigators connected to the Sandusky case.

The Freeh Group --an independent investigative task force hired by the Penn State University Board of Trustees -- released its report moments ago ... and according to investigators, Paterno, along with the most senior leaders of PSU, "failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade."

In fact, the Freeh report concludes ... Paterno ... along with PSU president Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz "repeatedly concealed critical facts" in order to prevent bad publicity for the school.

According to the report, Paterno knew about allegations concerning Sandusky since at least March of 1998 ... but failed to take any action to prevent Sandusky from having contact with young children.

"They showed no concern about the victim," the report reads.

"At the very least, Mr Paterno could have alerted the entire football staff, in order to prevent Sandusky from bringing another child into the Lasch Building."

The report says Paterno failed to take immediate action after Mike McQueary told him about Sandusky raping a boy in the gym shower in Feb. 2001 because Paterno "did not want to interfere with people's weekend."

The Freeh report classifies PSU's non-action as "catastrophic failures."

Just last month, Sandusky was found guilty of 45 counts of child sexual abuse ... and will most likely spend the rest of his disgusting life rotting away in prison.

Joe Paterno died back in January at the age of 85.

Made in China? Really USA? Really?

Somebody should get their asses fired.   Can the USA Olympic Committee be this dumb?

Don't they realize that in today's world.....with the internet and social media...nothing...and we do mean nothing...goes un-noticed?

Who was the genius who thought this thing through?

We are going to send our American athletes participating in the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics....attired in uniforms.....made in China?

Forget firing these idiots.....Put them in front of a firing squad....let the death be swift!

We are the United States of America.....We can't manufacture the uni's .....here?

Our belief is that smarter people than us here at 5 on Five...will see the errors of this...correct it.....and by the start of the 2012 Olympics.....our athletes will adorned in made in the USA attire.

It must happen!

Boxer’s 109-room mansion was purchased by JP Morgan Chase at a foreclosure auction in March, but Holyfield is just now leaving the home.

ATLANTA - MAY 3:  Four-time Boxing Heavyweight Champion of the World Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield attends game Game Seven of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals between the Miami Heat and the Atlanta Hawks during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Philips Arena on May 3, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Four-time Boxing Heavyweight Champion of the World Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield.

Former boxing great Evander Holyfield is moving out of his multimillion dollar mansion in metro Atlanta.

A spokesman for JP Morgan Chase told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the Alabama native is clearing out of the home. TMZ.com reports that moving trucks spent several hours at the mansion, but it was unclear where they were taking the boxer's belongings.


Jenni Girtman/AP

Former heavyweight champion boxer Evander Holyfield's home in Fairburn, Fayette County, Ga. is shown in 2008.

The 109-room mansion sits on 235 acres near Fairburn. The investment firm purchased it for $7.5 million at a foreclosure auction in March, but Chase spokesman Greg Hassell says the company gave Holyfield several months to move.

Holyfield reportedly owes more than $14 million on the house, including federal taxes. TMZ reports he also owes many back child support payments.

The former heavyweight champion is from Atmore, Ala.

At Least He Had His....Entourage

Stupid is what stupid does...In the the words of one Forrest Gump......pro ball players should take note.

Derrick Rose should know better.

But.....at least he had his entourage.

From our friends at TMZ.com......nothing gets past them:

Derrick Rose
Injured NBA Superstar
Limps Out of Nightclub


Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose still isn't healthy enough to get on the court ... but he felt like hitting the club scene in Hollywood last night ... gimpy knee and all.

TMZ shot footage of the 23-year-old -- who tore his left ACL back in April -- limping his way out of The Roxbury nightclub around 1:30 AM ... surrounded by his entourage.

Yes, we know, we asked a stupid question considering the situation ... but still, Rose's appearance at the club is a pretty shocking move, considering he signed a $95 million contract extension back in December. Taking his busted knee to a place filled with stumbling, drunken people might not be the wisest decision.

Rose reportedly had surgery on the knee on May 12 -- and depending how his recovery goes, he could miss the start of next season.
