VIDEO: TUESDAY ROUNDUP: Paterno Family Wants Full Disclosure, DeSean Jackson And Scott Hartnell In Studio(s)

VIDEO: Move over, “Sam Cassell, You Look Like An Alien” kid. This one-on-one with Cullen Jenkins usurps all the “Boom Goes The Dynamite” most awesomely bad interviews in sports interview history. 

VIDEO: Scott Hartnell goes behind the scenes at CBS Studios. (Less “The Newsroom” more “Anchorman.”)

VIDEO: ABC 6 goes behind the scenes with DeSean Jackson. (Less “Get Rich Or Die Tryin‘” more that movie Jamie Kennedy made that one time.) http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/video?id=8722338

VIDEO: Anybody out there wondering what happened with the Sixers third pick in the 2012 NBA DraftThe answer: This guy, Tornike Shengelia, selected No. 54 overall and then flipped to Brooklyn. Lucky…

SCRIPTUALS (Philly.com): Seems the Paterno family wants ALL emails between former Penn State president Graham Spanierformer vice president Gary Schultz, and former athletic director Tim Curley released. Interesting move. No denial of the meeting with Paterno Curley alludes to (when he changes the plan from “Turn In Jerry Sandusky” to “Talk To Jerry Sandusky”) in the statement. Maybe the family knows there’s no way the emails will become public? Can’t figure that one out.

SCRIPTUALS (AP): Dontrelle Willis retiresFuddling through some Ruben Amaro 2012 offseason acquisition math. One traded to the Orioles, one to the Yankees, one cut in spring training and later signed with the Orioles and then retired… One Ty Freaking Wigginton. Sounds about right.

SCRIPTUALS (FOX): Ken Rosenthal wants to remind you, baseball fans, you’re as much to blame for bad All-Star casts as is MTV for The Jersey Shore, seeing as you’ve got the same selection power

SCRIPTUALS (Deadspin): Case you missed it, 2012 NL All-Star manager Tony La Russa’s explanation — least the one he offered, don’t think he thought “because I don’t like him” would’ve flown — for leaving Johnny Cueto (scheduled start on Sunday) off the squad violates MLB’s CBA. No explanation for Brandon Phillips, though. (Inserting a harmonious “because I don’t like him.”)

SCRIPTUALS (Greg Cote, Miami Herald): Move over, Bron Bron. Looks like Dwight’s taking overas the NBA’s end-of-video game-level bad guy boss..

SCRIPTUALS (USA Today): UFC fighter grappling with courts? Domestic violence? Charges dropped? Figures… Except for: It’s a (gasp!) SHE?!?

SCRIPTUALS (Amy Shipley, Washington Post): Dana Torres, 40-freaking-5, won’t make her sixth Olympic games

SCRIPTUALS (Gregg Doyell, CBS Sports): Bryce Harper needs to be in the All-Star Game. (Actually a valid argument. Light on the exclamation points. … And caps. Wait a… Oh, OK. Doyell’s shift key’s busted. Got it.)
