The start of the NFL season does something indescribable to the most loyal football fans -- It has the power to transform the most ordinary members of society into die-hard pigskin psychopaths ...
... and it's glorious.

... Island Style

Beyonce and Jay Z's marriage is SO on the rocks that they're celebrating her 33rd birthday ... together ... with Blue Ivy on an island in the Mediterranean.
Jay and Bey were all over each other -- pretending to enjoy themselves on the beach. Jay played a little paddle ball while Blue played in the sand ... until it was time to head back to their yacht, off the coast of Corsica.
Yeah, we're calling it ... time to kill the break up talk. We should all be this unhappy.

'Shahs of Sunset' Star
All This Water...
And I'm Still Thirsty!

Mercedes Javid paid homage to Denise Richards' character in 'Wild Things' by squeezing into a micro thong swimsuit for a very soapy and public car wash/cry-for-attention.
M.J. shamelessly posed while putting a shine on her Volkswagen SUV in L.A. -- even though the city's in the midst of severe drought.
She's been very open about her dramatic weight loss over the last year, which she chalks up to a healthy appetite for sex.
Still ... washing a car is a pain in the ass.
Dwyane Wade Wedding
Yes, LeBron Was There
9/2/2014 9:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mystery solved ... LeBron James and his wife were DEFINITELY present at Dwyane Wade's wedding this weekend ... multiple sources tell TMZ Sports.
So far, no photos of The King have surfaced ... probably due to the fact Wade forced his guests to sign confidentiality agreements and banned everyone from using cell phone ... but we're told James was absolutely on hand to watch his former teammate tie the knot to Gabrielle Union.
Of course, LeBron wasn't the only star at the wedding -- Kevin Hart, Chris Bosh, John Legend, Carmelo Anthony & Lala, Ludacris, Ray Allen, Shane Battier and former teammate Dorrell Wright were all at the Chateau Artisan castle in Miami as well.

6 Bullet Holes & Huge Surgery Scar
The First Photos
9/2/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Suge Knight's torso looks like a piece of Swiss cheese -- riddled with 5 bullet holes, plus another in his arm -- and these photos of the damage make you wonder how in the world he survived.
In the pics, obtained by TMZ, some of Suge's wounds are still packed with gauze ... after the shooting nine days ago at a pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown.
You can also see the massive scar down the middle of his gut-- sources tell us doctors had to slice his torso open to make sure the bullets did not hit any major organs. Amazingly, they did not.
One crazy detail -- the bullet hole in Suge's arm is inches away from his ink honoring Tupac. One cool detail -- docs stapled him up so well, his tatt of a vintage whip almost looks untouched.

Gambles On Real Estate
Pays Off Huge!!!
9/2/2014 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
He may never make it to the Hall of Fame, but Pete Rose just wrapped up a real estate transaction worthy of a plaque ... selling his home for a $1 MILLION PROFIT!!!
TMZ Sports has learned ... Charlie Hustle just sold his 5-bedroom home in Sherman Oaks, CA for a cool $1.9 million ... which is great news for the ex-MLBer who bought the place for $913k in '99.
No word on why Rose decided to part ways with the crib -- it's a pretty cool spot (pool, palm trees, office, bbq area) ... but he does spend a lot of time in Vegas these days.
Still pretty far from Cooperstown.
