Fly’s rumorama: Albert Haynesworth, Tiger Woods, Michael Jackson, Joakim Noah, Kentucky GPA, UNC hoops, Tampa Bay Rays

NFL: Albert Haynesworth is being sued for $10 million by a Brooklyn exotic dancer, who claims Haynesworth knocked her up then dumped her. Papers filed in court claim he romanced her in Miami during Super Bowl festivities then dumped her when he found out she was pregnant and has refused to talk to her since March or giver her any money toward medical bills. Haynesworth’s agent declined to comment for the New York Post.

Golf: Tiger Woods reportedly has filed paperwork to begin work on a practice golf course, a series of pools and an oxygen therapy room for his 9,000-square-foot home in Jupiter Island, Fla. USA Today says such rooms typically feature a hyperbaric chamber, which delivers pure oxygen to a person under high atmospheric pressure. Another famous person who supposedly slept in one? Michael Jackson. Athletes sometimes use hyperbaric chambers to recover from injuries, and Woods has said he has used one before.

NBA: Joakim Noah still has his awesome bowtie from NBA Draft Night 2007.

CBK: John Calipari’s basketball players have improved their GPAs a bit. But they’re still almost one full grade point behind other Kentucky athletes. Says coach Cal: "A GPA just under 2.2 is not what we hoped for. But for the most part, every player improved from the fall semester and most finished strong."

• Who says a college sports team isn’t a sort of fraternity? UNC hoops players (and the recently-defected Wear twins) have the photographic proof (slighlty NSFW) that life is a party..

MLB: Here’s your sneak peek of what the Tampa Bay Rays will be wearing as their July 4th patriotic tip o’ the cap to the armed forces. This year the Rays are getting a jump on the patriotism, sporting their New Era "Stars & Stripes" caps from Memorial Day through July 4th.
