Page 2 staff

We continue to shake our heads in amazement at the wackiness we find in the world of sports and entertainment. If it isn't one thing (Ben Affleck), it's another (Jennifer Lopez). If it isn't a senseless drug arrest (Rex Hudler), it's a flashing pole vaulter (Tim Lobinger). It just keeps getting weirder.

As always, we tried to figure out what these folks might be thinking -- if anything -- and the best we could do was come up with multiple possibilities, all equally plausible. So, also as always, we are asking for your help. Check out the various possibilities for each questionable act or quote, and vote in the poll to move on to yet another "strange but true" story.

A. "I had no choice. Matt gave me an ultimatum."

C. "I decided 'Jenny from the Block' had been around it a few too many times."

D. "She keeps saying 'Gigli II' is a winner of an idea. Something has to be done!"

E. "Ya know, they say box-office receipts are just the first things to sag."

F. "Look, the Devil said he was going to have to cancel one of the two deals I made with him ... and, well, the Sox haven't won since 1918."
