Do you guys remember there was a movie awhile back called "Failure To Launch"? It starred Mathew Mcconaughey (before he decided to be a good actor in good movies) and Sarah Jessica Parker (because it's important to use your middle name sometimes). Well, a recent article describing Tyson Ross's girlfriend Ashley Hoffman and her experience with him and his parents really reminds me of that premise. I never saw the movie, but it was about a guy who lived with his parents and never grew up. Up to very recently, Tyson Ross was still living with his parents at the age of 23, and so was Ashley. In an article from last year, Ashley described how Tyson's dad would say "goodnight, see you in the morning" every night when she would sleep over and called it "so weird." It is kinda' weird.

Now, it appears that Tyson Ross's girlfriend Ashley Hoffman lives with him in their own place. Ashley has tweeted pictures of themselves getting photographed in their new home. The whole reason they were living with their parents was because they hadn't yet had the time to find a new place to live after he arrived on his new team. It's just one of those funny details. Almost all of Ashley's tweets have to do with baseball. She seems to be a true fan. I get the sense she was into baseball even before she knew Tyson.

The funniest thing Ashley Hoffman shared by far was a picture of an ad in a magazine for personal lubricant. She said she felt offended looking in People Magazine and see the ad that read, "Get intimate with wet platinum. Imagine the possibilities!" Her tweet itself isn't funny, but imagining poor Ashley opening the gossip mag and seeing this in-your-face lube advertisement with a goofy tag line is pretty funny.

Matt Kemp's girlfriend Nchimunya Wulf may have a difficult and slightly unusual name, but she herself has a fairly remarkable personal history. Matt Kemp has dated both Rihanna and Khloe Kardashian, so I guess he's one of those guys who considers himself a "brand." I can't stand when people refer to themselves that way, and I don't think he's done that, but a quick glance at his Instagram gives you the vibe that he's constantly marketing himself. Or maybe I'm just jealous. Anyhow, let's focus on the lovely Nchimunya...

According to her website, Nchimunya was born in Zambia and raised in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, and Denmark. That is pretty intense. She moved to England to study music at Chichester College in West Sussex, and then she moved to Paris, and then once more moved to San Francisco in 1999. How's that for throwing a lot of travel in your face to show off? This lady has got the itinerary. Matt Kemp's girlfriend Nchimunya Wulf is now a professional designer, and I've got to say she has talent. I like her clothes, and they look good on Kemp and Kevin Durant (another client). Durant wore one of her slick blue suits on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Durant is one of the coolest dudes ever. As you might expect, a woman with this kind of pedigree has a pretty interesting Instagram account. She has a razor sharp visual sense, and all of her pictures are really tasteful. Man, it'd be pretty cool if everyone's Instagram account were like this. Her quotes are also really classy: "Don't dig up in doubt what you planted in faith," "Stop looking for happiness in the same place you lost it," and "Comparing yourself to others is an act of violence against your authentic self." This is a talented artist, and Matt Kemp is a lucky fella'.

Tony Gwynn's wife Alicia Gwynn

The baseball world is in mourning this week after the death of a third legend in recent days. Following the passing of Don Zimmer and Bob Welch earlier in June, Tony Gwynn passed away today at the age of 54. Tony Gwynn's wife Alicia, son Tony Jr and daughter Anisha Nicole survive him.

Gwynn had been battling cancer since 2010 after having an operation to remove multiple cancerous lymph nodes as well as a malignant tumor inside his right cheek. In recent weeks, Gwynn was forced to take a leave of absence from his coaching job at San Diego State for treatments.

Gwynn's career may have been turned around in part by Alicia Gwynn. After struggling through a rough second half of the 1983 season, Gwynn asked his wife to begin recording his games for him. Gwynn began studying his own swings and tendencies, which helped to drive his career to new heights. Gwynn became an avid study of game film, which he often cited as one of the greatest tools available to him.

Gwynn was an eight time batting champ, with a career average of .388. His most impressive feats may lie in his strikeout stats, most notably notching a career high season with 40 Ks (something half the guys in baseball do in a couple months). The 15 time All-Star had five Gold Gloves, seven Silver sluggers, and is a member of the 3,000 hit club. While Gwynn's baseball resume is littered with accolades and awards, his legacy continues in his son Tony Gwynn Jr., an outfielder currently playing with the Philadelphia Phillies. Tony Gwynn Jr recorded his first career hit on July 19, 2006, exactly 24 years to the day from his fathers first hit. Both Gwynn men stood on second with a double. Anisha Nicole is an aspiring R&B singer whose debut album was titled "19" after her father's jersey number.

Alicia Gwynn runs the "Tony & Alicia Gwynn Foundation," which they founded in 1995. The TAG Foundation aims to help local children, young adults, parents, and the community with education and economic development.
