Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen had a bad turnover Wednesday night.

No, not on the court. His Twitter account was hacked and some jokester posted a sexually explicit, NSFW message that went out to the lights-out shooting guard's followers.

Ray ended up having to change his account name - from @sugarray20, which ironically fit the fake message sent pretty well - to @greenrayn20.

Allen was understandably upset and said he may even have to close his account.

That would be a shame. The recent trend of athletes turning out in droves to be more accessible to fans has been refreshing. It brings some added fun to both fans and players that can interact a little more freely and makes games personal to follow again.

As if President Obama weren't having enough issues lately, Afghanistan escalation, dropping public opinion numbers, the Nobel Peace Prize, etc., Now comes the left field oddity he probably never could have predicted: Tiger Woods.

The January Golf Digest cover story, 10 Tips Obama can Take From Tiger, was written over the summer and the issue went to press in November before Tiger's world fell apart, but it's still sure to be fodder for late-night jokes for a time.

An interesting quote from the issue:

"Woods is a good role model ... because he has always been able to pull himself together after setbacks. Woods never does anything that would make himself look ridiculous."

The idea was that Obama could take a page from the master tactician's golf game in dealing with adversity. Let's just all hop that the extreme crisis management Tiger's working on right now isn't a skill the president has to put into use anytime soon.

Pitino Extortion Bask_Newm.jpgPitino Extortion Bask_Newm-2.jpgRick Pitino, the man known for his tailored suits may soon be dealing with one of the legal variety as this odd story plays out.

The Louisville Courier-Journal is reporting that Pitino, the University of Louisville men's basketball coach, told police that he had consensual sex with Karen Cunagin Sypher at a Louisville restaurant where he'd been drinking on Aug. 1, 2003.

Pitino went on the tell the cops that he'd paid Sypher $3,000 to have an abortion following their tryst, but denies her claims of rape at the restaurant Porcini and again at a different location.

The Courier-Jounral was forced to use Kentucky open records laws to acquire the information.

The paper reports that Sypher has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiring to extort Pitino and lying to the FBI, both of which she has pleaded not guilty to. She reported the alleged rapes to Metro Police on July 9, about two months after she was indicted.

The paper goes on to report:

Sgt. Andy Abbott said in an investigative summary that Sypher failed, for example, to disclose that another person was at Porcini Restaurant when she said the first incident occurred.

That witness, Vinnie Tatum, an executive assistant to Pitino, told the FBI that he didn't see what happened but heard "only the sounds of two people that seemed to be enjoying themselves during a sexual encounter," according to Abbott's report.

Abbott said records also indicate that Pitino was in California when Sypher claimed he sexually assaulted her a second time. "The more information I gather, the worse it looks for you," Abbott told Sypher during a July 13 phone interview, according to a transcript of the call.

The Commonwealth's Attorney has said there will be no charges in the incident.
