A sports and musical merging is on the horizon. Jimmy Buffett, along with his company Margaritaville enterprises will become a new business partner with the Miami Dolphins team. One of the first changes to be seen will be the renaming of Dolphin Stadium to Land Shark Stadium. Land Shark is the name of the beer the Jimmy Buffett markets with the help of Anheuser – Busch. So you can imagine what type of beer you will be able to purchase at those Dolphin games, right? Buffett is actually good friends with the new owner of the team, Stephen Ross. This will all become official today at a private event where Buffett plans to sing before the official unveiling of the new Logo. This is actually quite exciting and good news for the team who has not had corporate sponsorship for several years. Land Shark stadium will also be the host of the 2010 Super bowl.
IT was a huge celebration in Las Vegas for the unveiling of the 50th Playmate of the year for Hugh Hefner and Playboy magazine. And not only is 27 year old Ida Ljungqvist a beauty but she is also the first ever African American playmate of the year. It was also the first time that the ceremony was held someplace other then the Playboy Mansion. The beauty comes from a unique background, a Tanzanian mother and a Swedish father and she can speak English, Swahili, and Swedish. Not to mention she is a size zero who claims not to be a big exerciser…figures. Hef’s ex, Holly Madison, from “Girls Next Door”, did show up to the event but didn’t do a lot of bonding with Hugh’s new main squeeze, Crystal Harris. IT seems that Hef is missing Holly and back at the end of April told the director of “Niche Magazine” in an interview, that “he would welcome Madison back with open arms because she is still the love of his life.” Hmm…wonder how that made his new gal pal Harris feel about her 83 year old beau?
What is it about Fridays…there also seems to be some baby news to share, so here is the happy news. First off Backstreet Boy, Howie Dorough and his wife welcomed their first child on Wednesday, a little boy, James Hoke Dorough, and he is a little guy weighing in at only 4.5 pounds. “Grey’s Anatomy” star, Chyler Leigh welcomed baby number 3, a girl, named Anniston Kae. And speaking of babies it seems that was the reason for the Lance Armstrong Sheryl Crow break up back in 2006. Lance has a new book, “Lance”, coming out soon and that is what he reveals. Ironically he is currently expecting a baby with his new girlfriend, but at the time he just wasn’t ready for a new family. He had just gotten out of a marriage with 3 children and Sheryl was ready, and due to her age her biological time clock was ticking. Not long after the breakup Crow did adopt a newborn baby and she says about motherhood, “It’s great! I love every minute of it.” And on that note, wishing all the mothers out there a Happy Mother’s Day this weekend!!
