Did @DennisRodman just ask #BruceJenner #CAITLYN out on a Date? Here are the details… #RSMS #DishNation

[Tweet "Did @DennisRodman just ask #BruceJenner #CAITLYN out on a Date? Here are the details... #RSMS #DishNation "]   Bruce Jenner would have had his "ass handed to him" if he came out as a transgender woman back in the '90s ... so says someone who spent a lot of time in women's clothing, Dennis Rodman. The Worm just called in to "TMZ Hollywood Sports" and says he's extremely proud of the way people are accepting Caitlyn ... and says society has come a LOOONG way in just a few short decades. In fact, Rodman says he specifically remembers spending HOURS trying to talk Sports Illustrated into letting him pose on the cover in women's clothing back in 1995. Now, Dennis says he thinks Jenner is breaking down some huge barriers for the LGBTQ community -- telling us, "A lot of athletes will come out now and say they're gay. Watch." And with Caitlyn saying she's still trying to figure out her sexual preference, Rodman has a message for the 65-year-old -- "If you wanna go on a date with me brotha, let me know." Presented by TMZ

@FloydMayweather & @MannyPacquiao Fight Broke another Record… #RSMS

[Tweet "@FloydMayweather & @MannyPacquiao Fight Broke another Record... #RSMS "] The Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight has broken yet another record: 1,100 pirated broadcasts, allegedly stolen by restaurants, bars and other commercial establishments that are about to hear from attorneys demanding payment. J&J Sports Productions, which paid $7 million for the commercial licensing rights for the fight’s pay-per-view broadcast, employed more than 1,500 private investigators across the country on fight night, company owner Joe Gagliardi said. The assignment: find establishments showing the fight without having paid for a licensing fee. “We have to catch as many as we can to protect the people who pay,’’ Gagliardi told USA TODAY Sports. The licensing fee typically ranges from $3,000 to $7,000, depending on the size of the business and the market, Gagliardi said. His figures — gleaned from a recent report, he said —indicate that a good percentage of businesses stole the broadcast signal. It is a federal offense that carries a fine of up to $100,000 and five years in prison. Gagliardi said about 4,000 licenses were sold compared to the more than 1,000 pirated broadcasts documented by the private investigators. (By comparison, the fight generated 4.5 million “retail’’ pay-per-view buys at $99.95 apiece.) Prior to the June 2 Mayweather-Pacquaio fight, there had never been 800 pirated broadcasts, according to Gagliardi, who said he expected the problem to be worse. He noted an unusually high volume of sales by mom-and-pop establishments in the Midwest and rural South and said, “Maybe a lot of piracy got limited because people bought the event.’’ Attorney Matthew Pare, who has defended establishments against J&J, said the company rarely accepts anything less than $10,000 and said the company’s aggressive stand amounted to [...]

The Car @RondaRousey used to LIVE in is now for Sale… #RSMS #DishNation

[Tweet "The Car @RondaRousey used to LIVE in is now for Sale... #RSMS #DishNation"] $6,100 might seem like a little much for a 2oo5 Honda Accord LX with more than 150,000 miles, but add a history of the UFC women’s bantamweight champion living in it and the price becomes a little more understandable. The Accord belongs to Ronda Rousey (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC), one of the most recognizable stars in all of combat sports and the woman Sports Illustrated called “The World’s Most Dominant Athlete.” If the car wasn’t enough for the collector of obscure MMA memorabilia, it also comes with an assortment of Rousey’s personal items. “There are many of Ronda’s personal belongings inside the car including medals, UFC programs from past events, patches, hats, and all kinds of random Ronda items,” the listing reads. “You can see from the eBay photos what all the items are that are located in the car. We (Ronda’s family) like to joke about all of the cool things you find in Ronda’s car. Every time you open the door, it’s is like an archeological dig! Also, Ronda did glue a few medals, patches, coins, and figurines to the inside of her car which probably aren’t going to come off.” Rousey lived in the vehicle when she returned form the Olympics, unable to afford rent and a security deposit on an apartment and forced to grind away at multiple jobs. The champ will next put her belt on the line at UFC 190 when she takes on Bethe Correia in Correia’s home country of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 1. Rousey’s mom is still using the car to run some errands and the car needs a new transmission, but there aren’t [...]

Could any of you do this at the age of 92? WOW! #RSMS

[Tweet "Could any of you do this at the age of 92? WOW! #RSMS "] 92-year-old runner Harriette Thompson became the oldest woman to complete a full 26.2-mile marathon Sunday in San Diego, finishing the Rock n Roll Marathon with a time of 7:24:36. Last year, Thompson set a new world record for women over 90 years old with a time of 7:07. Thompson, a cancer survivor herself, has raised more than $100,000 for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by running in marathons, according to the Washington Post. Thompson didn’t think she would finish Sunday, but she never gave up. “I’m just going to walk real fast and then run some, and just try not to wear myself down too fast. It’ll be sort of interesting. I’ll be the most surprised person if I finish it. I hope I will!” Presented by FTW USA Today

10 out of 10 active NBA players believe it’s time to LEGALIZE medicinal marijuana in the NBA. YES or NO?

[Tweet "10 out of 10 active NBA players believe it's time to LEGALIZE medicinal marijuana in the NBA. YES or NO? "] 10 out of 10 active NBA players believe it's time to LEGALIZE medicinal marijuana in the NBA ... and the recent video of Kevin Durant dropping prescription pot in L.A. is only fueling the pro-weed fire. Here's the dilemma ... since Rx weed is already legal in several states, should the league continue to outlaw the green stuff if a player has a legitimate prescription from a doctor??? We asked 10 active NBA players (all of whom wanted to remain anonymous) ... and they all made it very clear -- it's time to legalize it!!! One player told us, "How can you tell a guy with a prescription not to use it?? They should be allowed to have their medicine." Another said ... "The NBA shouldn't advertise for it, but I don't see an issue if a player uses [with a prescription]." Overall, the players believe the league needs to change with the times -- though they agree, the NBA is more progressive than other major sports leagues like the NFL and MLB and could be a real trailblazer when it comes to pot policy. But don't expect things to change overnight -- we spoke with the NBA Players Association ... which told us the issue can be on the table at the next collective bargaining session in 2017. "We represent the players' rights in their workplace. If this is an issue that membership feels strongly about, we would address it during CBA negotiations. This is a players' rights issue." So you're saying there's a chance .... Let me know your view, drop a [...]

Here is the REAL Reason Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) threw a Water Bottle at a Fan. #RSMS #DishNation

[Tweet "Here is the REAL Reason Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) threw a Water Bottle at a Fan. #RSMS #DishNation "] 10:08 AM PT -- A rep for the Irving PD tells TMZ Sports ... Johnny showed NO signs of intoxication. As for how the whole thing got started, Manziel told police he was being harassed by an 18-year-old man who was hounding him for an autograph. When the man realized Manziel wasn't going to give him one, Johnny claims the guy started "talking trash" and Johnny responded by throwing the water bottle. Security stepped in ... and the cops came as well ... but in the end, no one was arrested and everyone went their separate ways. Johnny Manziel allegedly got into a fight with a buddy of his after a golf tournament Saturday and according to one eyewitness ... Johnny's throwing arm was way off. Johnny and a group of friends were leaving the Byron Nelson Golf Classic in Irving, Texas, near Dallas, when he got into an argument with a guy in his group.  The eyewitness tells TMZ Sports, the guys were yelling at each other when Johnny threw a water bottle "really hard" at the guy, but missed. The eyewitness tells us, Johnny's friend sarcastically screamed, "Nice throw, Johnny," which apparently enraged the Cleveland Browns QB.  The eyewitness says Johnny charged his friend, but was stopped by someone in his group. Off duty cops who were working security came quickly, spoke with Johnny and his friend, and calmed the situation down.  The pic shows Johnny sitting in a chair and talking to a cop by the Four Seasons hotel. We believe no arrests were made. Johnny's rep told a reporter the QB was being [...]

Is This the Model that Broke-Up Tiger Woods and Ex-Girlfriend Lindsey Vonn? Hear what the Model Says… #RSMS #DishNation

[Tweet "Is This the Model that Broke-Up Tiger Woods and Ex-Girlfriend Lindsey Vonn? Hear what the Model Says... #RSMS #DishNation "]   Hell must be freezing over ... 'cause an extremely hot woman that has been connected to Tiger Woods tells TMZ Sports the two are actually NOT banging ... and get this, Tiger never even tried. We spoke to Turkish bikini model Tugba Ercan, who has been linked to Woods ever since she posted a picture of the two hanging out at a World Poker Tour event last week. Ercan says several websites ran with the story assuming that Tiger ... who just broke up with GF Lindsey Vonn ... was back up to his old birddoggin' ways. "They made it seem like it was something it wasn't, it was really just a picture." Ercan -- who once again, is SUPER HOT -- says that not only are her and Tiger totally not a thing, but that the notorious womanizer didn't even try anything ... and was a perfect gentleman. "He was very nice and polite. One of the nicest people I ever met, the charity work that he does with the World Poker Tour for children is amazing and moving to me." Good news? The extra eyes on Tugba have really been a shot in the arm to her modeling career ... leading to her being named S.I.'s "Lovely Lady Of The Day." "I really would love to be the first Turkish model in the Swimsuit Issue. It's my dream." It's now our dream too ... check out the pics below. Presented by TMZ

Is it True? Floyd Mayweather’s WEDDING PROPOSAL. Let me know what yall think of this… #RSMS #DishNation

[Tweet "Is it True? Floyd Mayweather's WEDDING PROPOSAL. Let me know what yall think of this... #RSMS #DishNation"] It's what every little girl dreams of ... a marriage proposal over text message ... complete with crazy Hollywood bribes and a demand that you change your crappy attitude, stat. And that's exactly what Floyd Mayweather fired off to Shantel Jackson back in April '14 ... according to new court docs obtained by TMZ Sports. Jackson put the proposal on display in new legal papers filed in her nuclear war with her ex-fiancee ... which shows how Floyd tried to convince Shantel into getting engaged for a 2nd time. "This is what I offer to you. Let's get married move in together you can go back in forth to L.A and stay at the condo." "I promise I will get you in 3 A list movies this year and I'm willing to go to counseling to make us work and you can get the stuff you want and I'm willing to change but I need you to have a better attitude." How romantic, right?! Shantel says she shot down the offer (shocker) ... and included several text messages dating back to April 2013 to show why Mayweather wasn't exactly her knight in shining armor. Among the highlights ... -- "I had your phone traced. I hired a detective. Your not slick." -- "I got nasty videos too that I can put on Instagram and twitter" -- "I took you from rags to riches now you back to rags bitch. that's why your out selling shit going on petty ass auditions fronting to people like your doing big sh*t." Shantel also says Floyd got upset over a photo [...]
