DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) Leading off Today’s “Jock Itch:” Heisman Trophy winner, Cam Newton, caused quite a stir when he said that he views himself as more than just a football player: but also as “an entertainer and icon.” He also said that he wants to be the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft and when he was asked to talk about the criticism that he’s only played one good, solid year in college football, he said, “I don’t want to sound arrogant, but I did something in one year that people couldn’t do in their whole collegiate careers.”


And in OTHER “itch” worthy news…

Kobe Bryant’s being kept on that leash from his wife because he actually banned female (I’d be scared to see anything BUT) cocktail waitresses from an NBA All-Star party he attended last week! He also had his security team run a pair of sweeps at the club in the week BEFORE the party, all to make sure that he gave his wife ALL of his attention, now that he’s been rumored to be involved in a paternity accusation…


Carmelo Anthony made his debut as a Knick last night and now he’s also got his very own sandwich from the famed Carnegie Deli! The “Melo” sandwich sells for $21.95 and it’s a towering sandwich made up of an ungodly amount of pastrami, salami, corned beef, bacon, tomato, and Russian dressing all on rye bread. And if you’re wondering why the $21.95 price tag? Deli owners say that if they sell three million of the “Melo,” then they’ll make his estimated salary of $65 million…


Some nude photos of actress, Eva Mendes, have gone missing! They were taken for an upcoming art show and were supposed to be displayed later on this week in LA. But, apparently, some pervos ended up making off with them and now the hunt is on to find these suckers! Eva hasn’t commented, but when you’re a hot chick, do you really need to?


YouTube has plans to soon broadcast NBA and NHL games live on the web! They’re in talks right now with both leagues, with plans to show more live sporting events by the end of the year. YouTube had great success broadcasting Indian Premier League cricket last year, so they’re hoping this will follow suit…


Oh to be THIS guy! Charlie Sheen takes a vacation with his wife, a porn star, AND his new live-in girlfriend! Talk about “Three’s Company” gone BAD! So much for “rehab” at home, since he took off with all three girls to some tropical island. By the way, they all even LIVE together as roommates in his mansion! On a side note, an ex-girlfriend of his named, “Elizabeth Ann,” (yeah, I don’t get it either) dated for about 4 months, and she’s coming out and saying that one of Charlie’s personal assistant’s duties is to constantly keep the “morning after pill” in stock, as she was a first hand “witness” by having to take them herself as well…


A new study finds that right wing candidates are better looking than their left wing counterparts and they’re going out on a limb by saying that they benefit from this good looking attribute during elections! (Ya, think??) This study was done in Sweden though, and isn’t everyone gorgeous there to begin with anyway?? Anyway, the study suggests that the left is associated with using a more rational approach in thinking, while the right has been more conscious of the importance of looks (ala Ronald Reagan and Sarah Palin.)


The notorious Auburn tree killer is now living in his car out of fear! Harvey Updyke is the nutso Alabama fan who killed the two live oak trees at Toomer’s Corner at Auburn University. Anyway, a friend of his is saying that he’s so freaked out for his safety, and for the retaliation after admitting publicly that he did the whole thing, that he’s been living out of his car and actually cleaning himself in a creek!


So Blake Griffin jumped over a car, threw down an alley-oop dunk and wins the Dunk Contest this year during All-Star Weekend; Well, former dunking sensation and Seattle Supersonic, Shawn Kemp, unearthed himself on a radio interview and is calling Blake’s dunk “weak.” Kemp said “I’m 41 years old and right now I could do it. Two Smart Cars.”


Rex Ryan is going all Hollywood! He and New York Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum are gonna shoot scenes in downtown LA and will appear in an episode of “CSI: New York” on CBS, slated to air in April…


Justin Bieber is 4,094% more popular than Kobe Bryant! Justin’s NBA Celebrity game MVP highlights on YouTube have been viewed just under 1, 200,000 times, while video of Kobe winning the actual All-Star game MVP was viewed at just over 28,000 times…Somewhere in the world, Justin Bieber’s parents continue to high-five themselves for NOT using protection that one night, 16 years ago…


George Clooney told Newsweek Magazine that there’s NO WAY he’s running for any sort of political office, because of all of the skeletons in his closet! He admitted that he’s banged TOO many chicks to run for office! He also adds he did too many drugs as well and that if he ran for office, his campaign slogan would be, “I drank the bong water.”


The Farrelly Brothers are considering Justin Timberlake for a role in the upcoming “Three Stooges” film! He’s being considered for the role of Larry (along with Woody Harrelson and Larry David), Johnny Knoxville as Moe (along with Hank Azaria,) and Will Sasso from “Mad TV” fame as Curly!


The iPhone game craze, “Angry Birds” has reached another level of popularity as a dad actually created an interactive “Angry Birds” cake for his 6-year-old kid! The cake features a working catapult and iced birds as ammunition. He said although it took 10 hours to make, it was destroyed in just two minutes…


And THAT’S my “Jock Itch!”
