Ride Around Town With The Girl I Love

We recently came across this recent photo of Hershel Walker, the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner, former NFL football star and former contestant on Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" who is now competing as a mixed-martial arts fighter. None of this is news, really, so why are we featuring Walker today? Maybe because his birthday is March 3, 1962, which means that this man, and this body, is less than 14 months away from turning 50. Wow. In Walker's case, 50 really is the new 30.

And speaking of "Celebrity Apprentice" alums, Joan Rivers is making headlines this week over her remarks about Sarah Palin. Joan, who has a new reality show with daughter, Melissa, was to appear on the Fox Network's "Fox and Friends" to promote the show, but then, suddenly, her appearance was cancelled. Joan had made a remark on another show that she thought Sarah Palin deserved some of the blame for the Arizona shooting, and that she thought Palin "is just stupid and a threat". After the Fox cancellation, Rivers tweeted that she thought it was due to her Palin remarks. Later, in an interview with Rob Shuter of Popeater, when asked if she would go on Fox if invited again, Rivers replied that Fox can "go fuck themselves."
Now if only the two former "Celebrity Apprentice" contestants would team up. Joan could taunt Sarah Palin while Hershel slams her to the mat in a cage fight. Now that's a reality show we'd like to see. Actually, put Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh in the cage with Walker, too, and we'd even pay to see it.
