Fandango

WWE Superstar Fandango wants to be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.

The 32-year-old wrestler is a fan of the program and if the opportunity arose to compete on the ballroom show he'd jump at the chance. Fandango - who uses ballroom dance moves in the ring and is always accompanied by his "dancing partner" Summer Rae - first got into the series when fellow WWE Superstar Chris Jericho competed on it in 2011. When asked if he'd like to compete on the series, Fandango told BANG Showbiz, "I would like to give it a go, I just need the right partner - maybe a lingerie model! I've watched Dancing with the Stars, I watched when Chris Jericho was on it, I think it's cool. It's always cool to see the stars - whether they're a football player or an actor, an actress, a model, whatever - put into that situation of crunch training to try and win the show. How they deal with the pressures and their egos of not being really good at it is interesting to see."

David BeckhamDavid Beckham is being inundated with offers to host his own talk show.

The 37-year-old footballer - whose rolling one year contract with Los Angeles Galaxy is up for renewal in December - has reportedly been offered the chance to front his own sports show by Time Warner Cable. A source told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, "We want David on board whether or not he continues to play for the Galaxy. We are on our way to becoming the world's biggest sportscaster and he is a key part of our future."

The insider said that the US-based company has offered the midfielder a "multi-million" contract and is "desperate" to secure the father-of-four to host a twice-weekly show on its new sports network. The proposed format would see David interview his fellow athletes, discuss tactics and give him "free reign" to cover any sports of his choice.

But rivals FOX are said to be hashing out a massive counter offer in a desperate bid to lure the successful British star to its network and he is considering his options after being advised to cash-in on his celebrity status.

Want to know why you didn't get to see the Minnesota Vikings play the New York Giants today? Here's the reason.

The Minneapolis area was hit with over 17 inches of snow, and the city's stadium -- which opened in 1982 -- felt the impact.

When leaks started forming on Saturday (apparently not an unusual event for the structure), the FOX Sports crew decided to leave their cameras rolling. Based on the great footage, their efforts definitely paid off.

The game will now be played Monday night at 7 p.m. ET in Detroit's Ford Field.
