Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah accepted a deferred prosecution agreement Wednesday in his marijuana possession case, resulting in six months' probation and a $200 fine.
The former Florida star was charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and for having an open container of alcohol early Sunday in downtown Gainesville. As a first-time offender, he was eligible for the deferred prosecution agreement, the State Attorney's Office said.
The charges will be dropped in six months if Noah meets the terms of his probation.
Noah also must pay $206 in traffic fines for two citations he received Sunday on the University of Florida campus. Noah was ticketed for driving with a suspended license without knowledge and for not wearing a seat belt.

I guess Joakim Noah has officially been broken into the NBA.
Lucky dude. $200 must be laughable to him. I got arrested over the weekend and drugs weren't even involved...let's put it this way, I'm paying a helluva lot more than 200 punk ass dollars!!
Dallas Cowboys cornerback Pacman Jones met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell last week in Atlanta about his possible reinstatement to the league. Jones has not been allowed to visit the Cowboys' Valley Ranch facility or take part in any organized team activities, but he is hopeful the league will allow him to do so this week, according to the report.

I heard today that my future ex-husband (D. Wade if you're confused) is gonna miss the rest of the season to rehabilitate his surgically repaired left knee. The first thing I thought was "what season?" The Heat have the NBA's worst record at 11-50 (or something like that), and Dwyane Wade missing the rest of the "season" really makes no difference. I hope the Heat can get it together!!

After 17 seasons in the NFL, 38-year-old Brett Favre is hanging up his cleats. Even though that's a long career in football years, wouldn't it be great if we all could look forward to retiring at only 38?
ALSO leaving the NFL after 14 seasons is Warren Sapp.
Reportedly he told teammates and coaches his plans after the Raiders' season finale against San Diego, but made it official today.

I went to New Orleans this past weekend and I didn't wanna leave!!! That was my first visit since the hurricane so I admit that I didn't really know what to expect. Everybody was trippin that the All-Star events were gonna be there thinking that it would be ruined by violence, and etc. but they were wrong! Everything was cool, and I must say that I can't wait until New Orleans is up and poppin' full throttle-ly!!!

The Miami Heat did indeed trade Shaq for those other two dudes (lol). Shaq and his great attitude showed up at his introduction press conference, in true Diesel fashion, and vowed to help Phoenix "get over the hump." You gotta love his personality because I probably would've been salty. I guess that's why he gets paid the big bucks.

The Miami Heat has been extremely disappointing this season (to say the least) so it's expected that they'd wanna make some changes. HOWEVER, one of those changes could be to usher Shaq out in exchange for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks. Although nothing's official that would kill Shaq's promise to the good people of Miami that he'd help deliver another championship. Hmmmm...I wonder what D. Wade's doing right now.

Despite asking the judge to "be as merciful as a human being can be" and admitting to being scared and sorry, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Karas sentenced Marion Jones to six months in prison for lying to investigators about using performance-enhancing drugs and her role in a check-fraud scam. Once dubbed the fastest woman on earth, Jones has until March 11 to surrender and begin serving her sentence. I know it's sad that she's going to prison, but six months will fly by so, be easy MJ!!

Why do people even take steroids? Damn it YOU'RE GONNA GET CAUGHT!! I really like Justin Gatlin so it was disappointing to me to find out that he received a four-year competition ban for an April 2006 positive test for testosterone and other steroids. Gatlin has said that he doesn't know how the steroids got into his system (they never know), and the ban could spell an end to the 25-year-old Gatlin's track and field career.
The infamous house where "it all went down" is up for sale for only $1.1 million. The 15-acre country estate in rural southeastern Virginia has five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, two fireplaces, cathedral ceilings, walk-in closets and an attached, two-car garage. I would buy it, but I don't live in Virginia :)
