Jeff Garcia, Donovan McNabb and Tony Romo now have more than one reason to be attracted to supermodel Joanna Krupa.

She publicly stood up to Buffalo Bills receiver Terrell Owens.

T.O. and Krupa teamed together Tuesday in the television debut of ABC's "The Superstars," but Krupa quickly experienced the frustration Garcia, McNabb and Romo have felt while playing with T.O. in the NFL.

"I don't want a teammate like that!" Krupa yelled after T.O.'s feet got tangled up in nets on an obstacle course. "Calls himself an athlete? What does he get a million dollars for?"

"You're the one that [messed] up!" Krupa yelled after T.O. blew a lead during their first run over the course. "We could have won! So shut up!"

Afterward, Krupa refused to shake hands with Owens.

Said Krupa: "So cocky? For what? You got in the NFL?"

Owens responded. "I feel really bad for your boyfriend. I feel really bad for him."

"Even I have never heard of me."

Tailor made

Former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa allegedly took performance-enhancing drugs to become stronger -- and tapered his jersey to make himself look stronger too.

CNBC reported that Sosa asked for elastic arm tapering for at least the 2002 season.

"I don't know why it would be tapered like that other than it being a purely cosmetic change so that people could see his muscles," David Hunt, president of Hunt Auctions, told CNBC.

Trivia answer

And finally

Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg told ESPN 1000 in Chicago that former Cubs teammate Sosa doesn't deserve entrance to Cooperstown if, as the New York Times has reported, he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug in 2003.

"They use the word 'integrity' in describing a Hall of Famer in the logo of the Hall of Fame," Sandberg said. "I think there are gonna be quite a few players that are not going to get in."
