Well look who's crushing the ball now that he's away from the disorganized Red Sox organization? It's Adrian Gonzalez, tearing it up for the Dodgers in his first full season following the blockbuster deal last July. [Editor's note: It's also Carl Crawford. I hate Boston for what they did to him last year. Hitting .465 through 2 weeks? Yeah, screw you Sox brass] All Boston fans can do is think about what could have been.
Of course, Gonzalez's resurgence could also have something to with being closer to home. He grew up in Southern California and Northwest Mexico, where he honed the craft of baseball playing along side his father and brothers in leagues. During his short time in Boston, he always remained professional which can be attributed to the faith that Adrian Gonzalez and his wife Betsy Gonzalez share. When the couple married in 2003, the decided the best way to have a strong relationship was to have religion as the centerpiece.
Adrian Gonzalez's wife Betsy Gonzalez, who's actual first name is Betzabe, has given a lot back to the community while her husband dazzles on the field. Together they founded The Adrian and Betsy Gonzalez Foundation which supports underprivileged youth in the areas of athletics, education and health. Betsy also worked with the Red Sox Foundation and most recently, she and Adrian donated and gave out toys to children at the East LA Annual Winter Wonderland Holiday Celebration.
Adrian and Betsy currently live in La Jolla, which is part of San Diego. They had their first child in 2011.

While some may say this is just an excuse to get more pictures of Rihanna on the site (and who could blame us), there actually is a sports related theme to RihRhi’s dating history.
Although she is only 24 years old, she has been in the spotlight for just 7 years. In that period of time, she has racked up quite a lengthy list of ex’s, the sports world not withstanding. We have covered some before, namely Andrew Bynum and Matt Kemp. She has also had quick flings with Rashard Lewis and British boxer/model (we’re just as confused with that title as you are) Dudley O’Shaughnessy. O’Shaughnessy starred in Rihanna’s video for “We Found Love”.
And in the completely-out-of-left-field category, she recently told Esquire UK that she has the hots for Cheryl Cole (footballer Ashley Cole’s ex-wife). Rihanna said, and I quote: “I would just like to watch her work. Preferably cleaning things on the floor. Picking up stuff on the floor. Bending over.” We’ll just let you think about that for a few moments while we gather ourselves.
Back now? OK, astute readers of the site will notice an odd connection here: one of Ashley Cole’s ex’s is Melissa Howe, who was a backup dancer… for Rihanna.
Most recently, she has been linked with the tattooed journeyman shooting guard JR Smith. They have been seen hanging out at several nightclubs in NYC and reportedly spent Memorial Day Weekend together in Miami. All that being said, Smith allegedly has several other girlfriends, so we don’t expect this to last very long.
Oh, and Chris Brown is still a horrible human being.
