Gabrielle Union Celebrates Birthday - The Miami Heat All-Star's girlfriend threw him a huge birthday bash to celebrate his 30th at the Setai Hotel in South Beach. Usher, T.I, Rick Ross, Common, Kelly Rowland, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Alonzo Mourning and Pat Riley joined the party with special celebrity performances. The night culminated with Rowland serenading D-Wade with a seductive "Happy Birthday," the Huffington Post reports. In addition to the hot birthday bash, D-Wade was given a $230,000 2012 McLaren MP4-12C from a local car dealership as well as a vintage 1982 bottle of Dom Perignon and a diamond-encrusted Hublot 3000 watch. All for free. Sports fans may wonder how D-Wade has lucked out with a lavish party and extravagant gifts to embrace his 30s. But, who is his girlfriend, Gabrielle Union? Union, 39, is an American actress and model. She is best known for her role as the lead cheerleader opposite Kirsten Dunst in "Bring It On." Union and D-Wade were featured on the February 2012 cover of Essence magazine. The pair has been together for three years. When asked if the couple has plans to marry, Wade said they are holding back. "We're not rushing it," Wade, a 29-year-old NBA player, told the magazine. "Both of us have been married before, and we understand that if we choose to marry again, we want it to be right." Wade was previously married to Siovaughn Funches and has two sons, Zaire, 9, and Zion, 3, from the marriage. Union was married to NFL star Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006. "We both took failing at marriage hard," Wade explained. "The next time it's gotta be forever." Gabrielle Union Celebrates Birthday

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.

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.
