SO WHEN DOES this whole Lindsay Lohan soap opera merely become one long, sad joke? Sounds like yesterday. Lindsay, the once-adorable moppet turned train wreck (car wreck might be more apt), was barely home from rehab long enough to open her mail when she was arrested again for allegedly driving drunk. Police hauled her in about 1:30 a.m. Pacific time (mid-afternoon Lindsay time). To make matters worse, police also found cocaine in her pocket - we told you she also needed an ankle bracelet for her nose.

HEY, Mel Gibson, what are you doing this summer? Going to rehab. Yup, in a move that's probably as much about image rehab as it is about kicking the sauce, Gibson's rep, Alan Nierob, told the Star, "He is in a program of recovery at this time.

Not much more than a month ago, Clarence Kay was placed on something that the NFL calls its "reserve/non-football illness list. " That name means what it says, but it quickly became clear that for the Denver Broncos' starting tight end, it was a polite euphemism for only one thing: drugs. Kay entered rehabilitation. He is back now, and is scheduled to start in Super Bowl XXI against the New York Giants. But in the rehab center, he met Hollywood Henderson, the former Dallas star.

ALLENTOWN – After consecutive seasons lost to elbow operations, righthander Chad Billingsley wasn't too worried about the two home runs surrendered in his first rehab start for the Phillies triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs Friday at Coca-Cola Park. A one-time all-star with an 81-61 record and 3.65 ERA with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Billingsley signed with the Phillies as a free agent in the offseason, looking to rebound from Tommy John surgery in 2013 and then surgery last June to repair his right flexor tendon.

Aaron Altherr is on his way back. The 25-year-old Phillies outfielder, who injured his left wrist when diving for a ball in spring training, began taking live batting practice and could begin a minor-league rehab assignment next week. The damage was severe, as the sheath that holds the wrist tendon in place was torn. The Phillies originally said that Altherr, who has a history of wrist problems, would miss four to six months after surgery on March 9. If he spends the maximum 20 days on his rehab assignment, his recovery time will fall around the five-month mark.
