Rapper Eminem’s new album “Recovery” won’t officially be released until June 22, but it has already leaked onto the internet two weeks early. Yes, that is Eminem with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Doesn’t Jerry look thrilled?

The hip-hop star is known for taking shots at other celebrities and musicians, and from time to time athletes. In “Recovery” he mentions Michael Vick, Ben Roethlisberger, and Troy Polamalu, although not all of the football players are shed in a good light.

On “Cold Wind Blows”, the first song of the album, Eminem drops the line “I’m nuts, Michael Vick in this b**** dog, fall back you mutts.” The track “Almost Famous” takes a stab at Ben Roethlisberger ending in the line “They call me Slim Roethlisberger.”

The last track of the album, the bonus song “Untitled”, references fellow Steeler Troy Polamalu’s lovely locks, saying “I flow like Troy Polamalu’s hair boy.”

Former Eagles teammates Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens will participate on the Spike TV show “Pros vs. Joes” and team up with San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates on the basketball court against retired NBA players Hakeem Olajuwon, Kenny Smith, and Rick Fox.

The Eagles made the Super Bowl in 2004 with McNabb and Owens, but Owens was cut midway through the 2005 season during a big debacle between the two.

Gates, Owens, and McNabb all played college basketball, with Gates gaining the most success of the trio. He averaged 20.6 points per game, 7.7 rebounds per game, and 4.4 assists per game his last year of college.

Olajuwon is widely considered as one of the best NBA centers of all-time, while Kenny Smith is a former first round draft pick and is now an analyst on TNT. Rick Fox has shifted his career to Hollywood as an actor after winning three NBA championsips with the Lakers.

The episode of “Pros vs. Joes” will air July 6, 2010 on Spike TV.
