FOX Sports' Jay Glazer is laid up in the hospital fighting double pneumonia, but it could've been much worse -- TMZ Sports has learned his condition was touch and go 3 days ago.
Glazer was having a back procedure to treat a broken disc Tuesday morning ... but shortly after doctors put him under he got sick and started choking on his own vomit -- the fluid ended up filling BOTH lungs.
Glazer was rushed to an L.A. area hospital where his breathing was so shallow his blood oxygen level dropped into the 70s (90-100 is normal) -- which over any prolonged period can easily turn into a life or death situation.
FOX's NFL and UFC insider is still getting treatment to clear his lungs, and has improved slightly ... but it's unclear how much longer he'll be hospitalized.
Talk about horrible timing ... Glazer went down just as NFL free agency began -- a period when fans expect his "scoopage" on big trades and new contracts.

After Pitchman's Cell Phone Craps Out
3/12/2014 3:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
When LeBron James tweets, Samsung listens ... especially when he's complaining about a HUGE problem with his cell phone -- since LBJ is a pitchman for the company.
The drama began earlier today when 'Bron tweeted, "My phone just erased everything it has in it and rebooted. One of the sickest feelings I've ever had in my life."
We spoke to a rep for Samsung who essentially told us the company scrambled the jets to remedy the problem that blasted to LeBron's 12 MILLION followers.
"We are following the situation," the rep tells us ... "We have a team looking into it. There should be more information soon."
LeBron, probably realizing he made a pretty huge boo boo, deleted the tweet ... and replaced it a short time later with some new info: "Close call. Wheew! Got all my info back. Gamer! Lol."

"Little People, Big World" couple Matt and Amy Roloff can't stand living together anymore -- they've just announced they're separating after 26 years of marriage.
Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Matt and Amy have been living separately since the holidays -- Amy currently resides in the family's main house in Oregon ... Matt lives in the guest house.
We're told neither Amy nor Matt is currently pursuing other relationships -- they're just testing the waters living alone ... for now anyway. So far, divorce isn't on the table.
Matt has had a history of drinking problems -- such as his 2007 DUI -- but we're told alcohol was NOT an issue in the split.
The Roloffs -- who have 4 children -- released a statement, saying, "Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation."
Jimmy Graham & Pierre Garcon
Ballin' it Up with U.S. Soldiers
... In Afghanistan
3/12/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jimmy Graham only knows one speed -- game speed -- and during a USO trip to Afghanistan last week, he broke out his basketball skills during a 1-on-1 game with a U.S. solider.
The New Orleans Saints star -- along with Redskins WR Pierre Garcon and Dolphins punter Brandon Fields -- went to the Middle East to visit soldiers in the field.
"It was an uplifting experience," Garcon tells TMZ Sports ... "It's amazing seeing the work they are doing to protect us."
Garcon says everyone he met was a huge sports fan -- "They were telling us stories about how they wake up at 3am to watch football. And then depending on how their team does, they're in a good mood or bad for the rest of the day."
The gang not only traveled, ate and hung out with the soldiers -- they also tossed around a football in their downtime.
"This experience for me has truly been life-changing," Graham said in a statement following the trip ... "I grew up in a Military home and this just makes me more of a patriot. I have more of an appreciation for the little things we have back home each and every day."
Frank Ocean to Chipotle
Here's $212,500 ...
Now Kindly 'F*** OFF'
3/11/2014 9:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Hot sauce isn't the only thing that burns at Chipotle -- Frank Ocean just posted a photo of the fat check he sent to the Mexican Grill after the company sued him for $212,500 ... and on the memo, he wrote "F*** OFF."
Frank posted the image on his Tumblr account -- and a rep for Chipotle has already released a response, telling TMZ, "Thanks, Frank."
We broke the story -- Chipotle sued Ocean, claiming it paid him the $212,500 as an advance to record a song for one of its commercials. Chipotle claims Ocean bailed on the project because the Mexican Grill insisted on using its logo in its own ad ... even though Frank didn't want it ... the audacity.
The Chipotle rep tells us, they haven't received the check yet -- but they're grateful he ponied up.
Sour cream never tasted so sour.
'Marriage Boot Camp' Hubby
I Got Gay Men Off
... For Money
3/10/2014 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Porn has ripped marriages apart before ... but not like this.
TMZ has learned, one of the husbands from Season 2 of "Marriage Boot Camp" once did porn for a gay website called "Straight Guys for Gay Eyes."
Shaun Sulligan -- porn name Johnny Walsh -- shot two scenes for the website back in 2009 ... one sex scene with a woman and one solo masturbation scene.
It's pretty unusual -- the website basically markets straight sex to a gay male audience ... focusing on the man's body instead of the woman's. But hey, whatever floats your boat.
Sources close to the show tell us, Shaun's porn past has become a sore subject in his marriage and will be addressed on the show.
FYI, Shaun shot the porn the same year he met his wife Sofia -- we're guessing she's not too happy about that.
Ex-High School Phenom:
I'm Training For NBA Draft
3/10/2014 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-high school basketball stud Aquille Carr -- who famously turned down a scholarship to Seton Hall for a career overseas -- now has his sights set on the NBA, telling TMZ Sports he’s training hard for the upcoming draft.
Carr's journey hasn't exactly been smooth sailing ... the 20-year-old left high school to supposedly take a gig with a European team, but that didn't work out and he got an opportunity on an NBA D-League team.
But Carr (5'6", 148-lbs) was recently released from the D-League squad (although the team praised his talent) ... and now, Aquille says he's confident he'll be drafted by an NBA team in June.
In fact, Carr says he's been back East working with trainers to develop his NBA game -- with an intense focus on shooting and playmaking.
He also tells TMZ Sports he’s learned from his past mistakes, which include a 2012 arrest for domestic assault -- "I don’t look back on my past. I’m on to better things, learning, working hard and trusting in god more."
Carr, nicknamed "The Crimestopper" because of a reported dip in Baltimore crime during his high school games, says it was his recent experience in the D-League that had the biggest effect on his future plans -- "It helped me mature more, playing with guys that are in the NBA now, living that lifestyle, I learned a lot."
As far as the NBA competition he’ll be up against ... Aquille doesn’t seem to be intimidated.
We asked who’d win in a one-on-one game between him and the NBA’s number one little man Nate Robinson ... and Aquille didn't hesitate -- “Aquille Carr The Crimestopper, no doubt.”
I Just Bought Bieber's Calabasas Crib
3/6/2014 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber's Calabasas neighbors can finally breathe a sigh of relief ... because the Biebs is moving out -- after scoring a million dollar profit from the new buyer ... Khloe Kardashian.
We broke the story ... Bieber decided to move out of Calabasas in January after numerous run-ins with neighbors and law enforcement -- where he felt trapped in his own home -- and now he dumped it off on Khloe.
Bieber bought the house in 2012 for just over $6 mil. Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Khloe bought the home for $7.2 million.
As for Khloe ... she sold her Tarzana estate to "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco for $5.49 mil.
The move makes sense for K.K. -- her sister Kourtney recently purchased the nearby home of Keyshawn Johnson ... who had his fair share of beef with J.B.
We're told Khloe will do some remodeling, because Justin's 19-year-old taste doesn't suit her.
He's all yours Atlanta!
Grilled Like a Cheeseburger
Over Miami Pap Fight
3/6/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber better grab a warm jacket ... because he's about to get the third degree -- courtesy of the lawyers repping the Miami pap who's suing the singer for battery.
Bieber just arrived for his deposition in the lawsuit filed by photog Jeffrey Binion, who claims Bieber's bodyguard Hugo Hesny choked him and stole his camera equipment last June outside a Miami recording studio. Binion claims Bieber ordered the attack.
The deposition is going to be ruthless -- sources tell us, Binion's lawyers are ready to go to war and are planning to ask Bieber hundreds of questions about EVERYTHING ... not just the Miami incident.
We're told the lawyers will cover every other pap scuffle ever -- including the most recent one in Atlanta -- as well as Bieber's drug use. And it won't end there either.
Here's hoping it will be as entertaining as Lil Wayne's.
I'm Bambi's Worst Nightmare!
3/6/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
DeAngelo Williams didn't just kill the Giants this year ... he also slaughtered some deer, turkey, rabbit and duck ... 'cause the Carolina Panthers running back is a hardcore hunting machine.
"I hunt all year round," Williams tells TMZ Sports ... "In season, out of season. I hunt everything."
He's not kidding ... Williams documents his kills on social media -- posting photos of the animals he tracks down and shoots.
But Williams insists he doesn't just hunt for the hell of it -- "I shoot to eat. If you kill it, you eat it. I tell my friends, if you kill a skunk, you eat it."
“I make my own jerky. My specialty is deer jerky. My 3-year-old loves it.”
The 30-year-old Arkansas native says it's all part of his obsession with nature -- "There’s no traffic, no people. Right before you pull the trigger you almost feel one with the animal.”
"Last year I shot a 20 pound turkey!"
We reached out to the turkey for comment -- so far, no word back.
Showdown with Terry Bradshaw
'Can I Marry Your Daughter?'
3/5/2014 12:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Terry Bradshaw had a serious decision to make recently -- do I really let a kicker marry my daughter???
Don't worry ... to the delight of Tennessee Titans star Rob Bironas, he said "Yes!"
In case you didn't put two and two together, Bironas is engaged to Terry's oldest daughter Rachel ... but before he popped the question, Rob went the traditional route and asked Terry for his blessing.
"I felt waiting a year before asking for his blessing was both respectful and good timing since I was in season," Rob says.
When he finally got the chance (early one morning at Terry's Oklahoma ranch) ... Rob says the 1-on-1 session with his future father-in-law couldn't have gone better.
“He didn't give me much grief at all. He took it easy on me.”
"The truth is I knew I was going to marry Rachel when I first met her. It was a waiting game. I bought her ring six months earlier and had it sitting in a safe and I couldn't wait to put it on her finger."
The two are set to tie the knot in June. Congrats!
Khloe and Lamar
Together Again ...
As Crime Victims
3/4/2014 3:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are united again ... as victims of a quarter-of-a-million dollar jewelry heist.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... someone pilfered watches and gold chains inside the former couple's Tarzana home ... which has sat empty for more than a month.
Cops tell us they think it's an inside job because there are no signs of forced entry.
As you know ... Khloe filed for divorce and has moved on. The house was sold to "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco.
The jewelry theft was discovered Monday night ... when Khloe and Kris were there cleaning out the house for the new owner.
As for who did it ... cops are investigating. The house has undergone work over the last month so detectives are focusing on some of the tradesmen.
5 Months PREGNANT!!!
3/3/2014 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Forget the Oscars, Scarlett Johansson has an even bigger award on the way ... she's preggers ... and we're told pretty far along.
Sources close to Scarlett and fiance Romain Dauriac tell TMZ, the "Her" actress is roughly 5 months pregnant.
The 29-year-old Johansson got engaged to Dauriac -- a French journalist -- last September, but Johansson's in no rush to get married.
You'll recall, Johansson was previously married to Ryan Reynolds ... they got divorced in 2011 after about 3 years of wedlock.
