So in Game 1 of Dallas-Miami we got some Jerry Bruckheimer, some Jack Ingram, some Terrell Owens--some so-so celebrities. But for Game 2, I hear we're going to--you knew it was coming--turn up the Heat. In addition to American Idol finalist Elliott Yamin singing "The Star-Spangled Banner," expected in the house Sunday night are George Clooney and Jamie Foxx. Mavs deep throats tell me Foxx actually called the team asking to sing the anthem, but was politely turned down when he demanded a private jet for the round trip (to and from Los Angeles, likely), a night at The Mansion on Turtle Creek, etc. No truth to the rumor the Mavs countered by offering Foxx a lifetime pass to Dallas Alley . --Richie Whitt
