Victoria Secret Angels

Victoria Secret Angels - The new Victoria’s Secret angels last night welcomed Adriana Lima’s return, with a twist. When the new angels took to the VS Fashion Show 2010 last night on CBS, back was a familiar face with a dazzling addition. Adriana Lima returned in a $2 million bra covered in diamonds.

The breathtaking creation (Lima) wore the amazing item which featured 3,000 white diamonds amounting to 60 carats, a mix of light blue sapphires coming in at 82 carats, and a sea of oval shaped topazes.

Adriana Lima took the show that featured everyone from Katy Perry to Akon but which did not feature Heidi Klum or Miranda Kerr in attendance. The new angels for 2010 were Lily Aldridge, Candice Swanepoel and Erin Heatherton.

And while the bra was a showstopper, it wasn’t the most expensive from the manufacturer. Victoria’s Secret previously has showcased $5 million and $3 million bras.

Of note, Columnist Rachel Beck contends that high-priced bra sales are a great indicator of Holiday economic trends. Beck asserts that, if women are willing to purchase the higher priced bras, that would suggest two things. First, “they’re probably willing to buy other things for themselves too”. And second, this year Holiday “shoppers are willing to indulge” contrary to previous years.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
