Ladies and gentlemen (and especially ladies), welcome to the Sports Kabob, a skewered look at the world of sports and pop culture.

Here are the top stories:

The NFL is looking into whether New York Jets players harassed Ines Sainz, a female reporter from a Mexican television network, during a practice on Saturday.
Apparently some players were whistling, some were cat calling, and Antonio Cromartie even asked her if she wanted to be his latest baby mama

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said on Sunday that the league was aware of the reports that the TV Azteca reporter may have been singled out by Jets players. While the facts are still being gathered, the leading advocacy group for female reporters, the Association of Women in Sports Media, has agreed to hold an education seminar for Jets players and staff in the coming days.
It should be pointed out that this is not the first time something like this has happened in the Jets locker room. For months, Rex Ryan has had a restraining order placed against him by the guy who fills up the vending machine.

The reporter in question, Ines Sainz, claims to be the hottest reporter in Mexico and has many suggestive pictures on the internet.
Sainz has gotten tons of publicity for this incident and has already been approached by HBO for a new show “Hard Knockers: The Story of the NY Jets Locker Room Reporters”

Sainz says she may leave NY and instead try reporting on other NFL teams
She says the only team she won’t go to is the Arizona Cardinals, for fear of being deported as soon as she walks in the stadium

Reggie Bush decided to return the Heisman trophy he one in 2005 because he received illegal benefits
Of course, when I saw the headline “Bush returns honor he cheated to win”, I thought it was about George W giving back the 2000 election

The Heisman Trophy Trust announced Wednesday that the 2005 Heisman will remain vacated following Reggie Bush’s decision Tuesday to forfeit the award.
So it will be like Reggie Bush’s Heisman win never happened. Sort of like college teammate Matt Leinart’s pro career

Michael Vick nearly led the Eagles to a comeback win after Kevin Kolb was injured on Sunday, and may be named starter for the team’s second game.
Vick has also tried to repair his image with Philadephia’s PETA representatives. If the Eagles win, he will donate his game check to help animals, and if the Eagles lose, Vick has agreed to go into the local pound wearing only Lady Gaga’s meat dress from the VMAs

The Q Scores Company, which conducts popularity polls, has Lebron James rated as the sixth-most-disliked figure in American pro sports.
And how does James feel about being hated? Tune in to his one hour special this Monday on ESPN to find out!

Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist was so determined to finish an opening touchdown drive last week against Michigan that he stayed in the game even though he couldn’t see out of his right eye.
In fact, Crist’s vision was so bad, he actually saw Notre Dame as being relevant

Unwanted by the NBA, Allen Iverson is considering playing in China.
Now all Iverson has to do is learn how to say “practice” in Mandarin

That’s all for this week, leave comments and remember this is Jarrett Carlen saying forget Mayweather, I wanna see Pacquiao vs J-Woww
