This may have been evident when the New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie lost track of his kids -- he has nine with eight different women -- on HBO this past summer. But in case you were wondering the mom of kid No.5 has written a book to help other women avoid falling into the same trap she did. My humble suggestion: When a guy who has four kids from as many women asks you to have his kid too; maybe take a pass. Anyway, interesting reading in the 'you've got to be kidding' vein: She depicts him as a champ in bed but a cheat who dumped her days before their $200,000 wedding and left her to give birth to his sixth child alone. "Love, Intercepted: A Tale of Football, Falling and Failing in Love" is her account of their on-and-off relationship, but Patterson never uses Cromartie's name, referring to him only as "he." "It goes nameless because the story is bigger than him," Patterson told The Post. "This is not a book to bash him. It's meant to help women avoid making the same mistakes I did." She doesn't blame Cromartie, noting he was raised poor by a single mom -- a "less-than-ideal environment to learn how to be a man." In a romance that started on Facebook in 2005, she says, Cromartie lacked conversational skills, but communicated between the sheets. "I will give it to the man -- he's talented, well endowed, and . . . it was truly the best sex I'd ever had," she writes. "He was one of those lovers who would caress you, stroke your hair . . . look you in the eyes and ask you to have his child. I thought his asking me to bear his child meant he loved me."
7. Inside the mind of Ron Artest:
They Los Angeles Lakers spent some time on Twitter last night and in case you ever wondered what he's thinking; well, objectively speaking it seems a bit disjointed. A sample: i also have a pet rhino. super greedy. sometimes he chases me around the house. i just start screaming."ahhhh. the brits are coming
I'm don't have a pet rhino -- well, not one I'm going to tell YOU PEOPLE about -- but you can follow me on Twitter: @michaelgrange, just so you know.
