LIGHTS, CAMERA, FRICTION!  Chris Evert, Lindsay Davenport, and Justin Gimelstob will appear on a January 2013 episode of the broadcast TV show CSI, in which the usual cast of investigators will pursue the fictional case of a dead professional tennis player, a female. Evert tweeted her enthusiasm about the gig, and the chance to work with her friend Elisabeth Shue. (But how close can they be if Evert misspells the actress's name in said tweet? Let's blame Autocorrect.) After rattling off Evert and Davenport's accomplishments, one write-up on the impending appearances notes, "Justin Gimelstob’s career is, admittedly, a little less weighed down by trophies, but we’re sure he’s a lovely man."

CZECH IT OUT  Just call Tomas Berdych the MacGyver of Davis Cup drinking. Not content to swill champagne directly from the bottle, the No. 6-ranked champion proceeded to pour into the newly clinched Cup itself, imbibing the sweet taste of victory from that. Sacri-licious?

GLOBALPOVA  Maria Sharapova's candy brand is catching up to its creator: Sugarpova goes global as of its release in stores (or simple availability for shipping) in a number of major markets worldwide, likely early in 2013.

TEAM GB KNOWS HOW TO PARTY  Dancing for charity, gold and silver medalist Andy Murray, bronze-winning diver Tom Daley, and more members of Team Great Britain from the London Olympics shake their stuff in this entertaining clip:



Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, those of you celebrating the holiday. Enjoy this weekend, Spin Nation.
