On a list of body parts Jenna Jameson is known for, her arm wouldn't rank near the top. But the adult film veteran and best-selling author (How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale) still wants you to know that she can throw a football. "For a small girl, I can really rocket that f-----," Jameson (below) told SI. She was looking forward to showing off her gun at the Lingerie Bowl--the annual skin game that runs during halftime of the Super Bowl. Organizers asked her to play, but her insurers wouldn't let her. Instead, Jameson will be in the booth for the pay-per-view broadcast. "I'll kind of be like the John Madden of the Lingerie Bowl," she says. "Not physically, of course. And more than likely, I'll be in my underwear, too."

On a list of body parts Jenna Jameson is known for, her arm wouldn't rank near the top. But the adult film veteran and best-selling author (How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale) still wants you to know that she can throw a football. "For a small girl, I can really rocket that f-----," Jameson (below) told SI.

? When longtime Cubs fan Jimmy Buffett returned to Wrigley Field as a spectator last week, his first visit since playing two sold-out shows there last September, he couldn't help but grin--even as the Cubs lost 6--0 to the Pirates. "Every few minutes," Buffett tells SI, "I would smile and recall something that occurred during the show. It is my most memorable baseball experience." A two-DVD set culled from the Chicago performances, Live at Wrigley Field, hit stores on Aug. 1.

? Kevin Costner is also getting into the ballpark concert business. On Aug. 11 he will head back to Dyersville, Iowa, where Field of Dreams was filmed, for the first time since he starred in it 17 years ago. He and his unnamed rock band will play a show in the outfield of the diamond used in the movie, and the gig ( Costner plays guitar and sings) will be followed by a screening of Field. "The movie was significant in my career," said Costner, "and the band is an important part of my future."

? The 2006 World Cup provided a swan song--it was French midfielder Zin�dine Zidane's final tournament--and now it has spawned a hit song based on Zidane's head butt of Italy's Marco Materazzi. Shortly after the infamous t�te-�-chest, two producers at the French La Plage Records wrote Coup de Boule (The Head Butt) and sent the track to friends. (We lost the World Cup, we had a good laugh anyway.... Watch out, it's the head butt dance) The song quickly made it to French radio, inspiring a video (with footage of past Zidane indiscretions), and the single hit No. 1 on French music charts. Not bad for what a La Plage rep last week called "a joke to entertain our friends."

? Buccaneers quarterback Chris Simms isn't shy about which Hollywood starlets he's keen on. In Tampa Bay's offensive scheme the QB yells "fox" at the line of scrimmage when he calls an audible. This summer, though, Simms has been shouting names of women he considers foxy. Among his favorites, according to coach Jon Gruden: Halle Berry, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and Pamela Anderson.... He's young (26), but how restless is Luke Walton? America will find out on Aug. 30, when the Lakers forward makes his acting debut on CBS's The Young and the Restless. The part isn't a stretch: In one scene shot recently Walton plays one-one-one against actor Kristoff St. John.
