Playing the Field: Evelyn Lozada’s men, the return of Te-Bowie

Chad Ochocinco was released by the Patriots Thursday.

Kicking off  ‘Where will Tim Tebow land?’ day at Playing the Field with a little Winner/Loser:

WINNER: Antoine Walker
So the former King of the Wiggle is near homelessness and plays in the D-league at 35 years of age. He still dreams of returning to the NBA one day. He gambled away tens of millions in the late ’90s and early ’00s in a weak effort to keep up with Michael Jordan at the craps tables, only he didn’t understand that MJ made more than him in a year than he did in his entire Celtics tenure.

He sold his Miami Heat championship ring this week in an effort to make it through one more year living in a run-down apartment in Idaho.

It’s not easy being Antoine Walker these days, that’s a fact. But, really, at least the guy has peace of mind. At the very least, he isn’t whoring himself out for a couple mil by getting married Kardashian-style this summer. He is picking himself up after hitting rock bottom.

And at the very least, he doesn’t have to deal with the mindless jibba-jabba of his ex-fiancee Evelyn Lozada (of “Basketball Wives” fame) on a day-in, day-out basis:

LOSER: Chad Ochocinco
He was Tom Brady’s lackey throughout the 2011 season, but never managed to comprehend the Patriots playbook. He finished 2011 with 15 catches on the ENTIRE YEAR. Had he been even a semblance of his former self, Brady and Bill Belichick would likely have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy for the fourth time (think they could’ve used a deep threat in the fourth against the Giants?).

But playbooks be damned, Ocho is going hard after the cash this summer by marrying Lozada on national TV. Who will watch it? No one knows, but it’s a sure bet that Ocho is making significant bank on this one.

He’s recently become painfully sensitive on his typically funny Twitter account. But he is inching closer and closer to becoming a sell-out. Who bought his soul? Yup, ‘Toine’s ex.

Tebow drama

Love or hate Jimmy Fallon, you have to admit the guy does a mean David Bowie. He brought back “Te-Bowie” last night on his late night show and this one might be better than the first.
There was also his Pearl Jam tribute to Jeremy Lin in February.

Lady slams

We can add this to the 4.6 second YouTube montage of the greatest girl dunks in history.
Of note, Baylor’s Brittney Griner accounts for 3.8 seconds of it.

I want names

By now you’ve likely heard about Allen Iverson’s estranged wife wanting the former Philly star to provide a list of all the women he slept with while they were married.

We would just like to know, what is Tawanna Iverson preparing to do when and if her ridiculous request is made and would Iverson simply just scribble down names in a notebook?
