Kendra Wilkinson will be none too happy that her boy toy, Hank Baskett, was left off the Pro Bowl roster. (Incidentally, the reports of Brian Dawkins' demise were greatly exaggerated.) She went on the podcast of the Best Damn Sports Show Period and basically proclaimed Baskett to be the best receiver in the whole wide world. Here's a quick recap:

She says Baskett makes plays and Kevin Curtis doesn't, so the Eagles should throw the ball to her man instead of Curtis.

She wants Baskett's next end-zone celebration to reenact their engagement by having him get down on one knee and "propose" the football to her.

And, finally, this one is my favorite: At a recent Eagles holiday party, she personally asked Jeffrey Lurie, Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb to throw more passes to Baskett.

I'm sure that went over well with his teammates.

Next year, when Coach Wilkinson has replaced Marty Mornhinweg as offensive coordinator, you (and Kevin Curtis) won't think this is so funny.

I, like the rest of the world, eagerly await Baskett's "next" end-zone celebration. It will certainly be more entertaining and memorable than its many, many predecessors.

As for Hank, I strongly urge him to make a call to the one man who can talk him through the abuse and mockery he is sure to take in the locker room: Kris Benson, you are needed here.

In all seriousness, this can't help him in the locker room. This is precisely the kind of ammo most guys would love to use against their buddies. If my girlfriend called Jim Cohen and requested more space for my column, I'm fairly sure I'd get crucified by the other foreheads.

Then again, maybe being engaged to a Playmate gets you some extra leeway with the other players.

Being crucified by a forehead sounds painful.

Your girlfriend would only be trying to keep you busier so she could have another hour or two without hearing about your fantasy football teams every day.

And sure, dating a Playmate gets you major respect - right up until she opens her mouth. Eye candy isn't always sweet on the ears.

Alas, my fantasy team is all but finished. We're like the Cubs - always thinking about next year.

And it's the holidays, Phil. Let's not forget that Playmates are people, too. Wonderful people who have the temerity to approach Andy Reid and ask him to throw to Hank Baskett (of all people).

If you're Greg Lewis or Reggie Brown, I bet you're looking at your lady right now and thinking, "Why aren't you lobbying the coach? Slacker."

I bet Andy appreciated her points of view, how she could cleave deeply to the very heart of the matter.
