That's a LOT of handbags!! Wednesday, a Milan court convicted designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (but not the ampersand) of kind of, like, well, hiding $1.3 billion in income from tax authorities. There was sweaty/shady stuff with this Luxembourg holding company, Gado. D&G got 20 months suspended sentence and have to cough up 500,000 euros (about $670,000) to authorities. They also, by law, have to be crime-free for five years, or they could do jail time. D&G's lawyer says they'll appeal.

Brittany Cozzens grew tired of the Pinterest e-mails notifying her of new followers, about 10 a day, so she turned them off. A year later, a marketing company let her know: she had more than three million followers, putting her among the most followed people on the site. "I was like, 'That's not right.' Then I went to look and was like, 'Oh . . ..' " Cozzens' self-described "procrastination" on the popular photo-organizing website landed the rising Temple University sophomore a paying job as one of more than 250 influencers for Pinterest marketing company HelloSociety.

PHIL MICKELSON stood in the hallowed halls of Merion's clubhouse, just feet from where he teed off 4 hours earlier, and was asked to describe the feeling of finishing second in the U.S. Open for the sixth time. "It's very heartbreaking," Mickelson said. "I feel like this was my best chance on a course I loved. " Merion loved Mickelson back. But it was his putter that betrayed him. Here's a look at walking all 18 holes with Lefty, during a round that was as sideways as it was up and down: 3:14 p.m.: With well more than $1 billion net worth serenading Mickelson with "Happy Birthday" from Merion's members' tent off the first tee, Phil plants his tee in the ground as the only player in the U.S. Open under par for the tournament.

DeSean Jackson, who has built a career on creating highlights, has lived much of his life in front of a camera. The by-product is a new documentary, DeSean Jackson: The Making of a Father's Dream, compiled from thousands of hours of footage taken by his brother, Byron Jackson, since Jackson was a child. "At first, being young, I used to always tell him to stop filming me," Jackson said. "But [Bryon] used to tell me, 'One day, this is all going to be needed.' " Available Sunday for Father's Day on inDemand, the film is ostensibly about DeSean Jackson.

BEIRUT - Syrian troops pushed forward with their offensive against rebels Saturday, capturing a suburb near the Damascus international airport as the U.S. warned that the alleged use of chemical weapons by President Bashar al-Assad's forces and the involvement of the Iranian-backed militant group Hezbollah in the civil war threaten to put a proposed political settlement out of reach. The United States and Russia have been pressing for a peace conference to end Syria's civil war in Geneva, but prospects for that have been dampened after a series of regime battlefield victories and hardened positions by both sides as the death toll from the more than two-year-old conflict has surged to nearly 93,000.

Sergio Garcia is already something of a polarizing figure, and his comment about Tiger Woods this week, in which he said he'd serve his rival "fried chicken" if he came over for dinner, hasn't endeared him to fans at Merion. "Look at him - he's walking behind [Rickie] Fowler so he doesn't get booed," one man scoffed Saturday as Garcia made his way to his first tee-off of the day at the 11th hole. (Fowler, who's playing in Garcia's group, received nearly as much attention for his birdie on the 13th hole as he did for his colorful attire - a bright yellow shirt and electric-blue pants.)
