The clock is ticking on Charl Schwartzel.

He may be a Masters champion for the rest of his life, but he's only got another month left with his green jacket. That's because since the early 1960's, Augusta National has required all winners to return their famed wardrobe prize after a year. It's a rule that is not lost on the South African.

"I wore it I don't know how many times. It traveled with me the whole of last year," Schwartzel said on a Tuesday conference call. Basically every single function that we went to, I wore it."

After birdying the final four holes of the 2011 Masters to win in epic fashion, Schwartzel headed to the Malaysian Open and pictures surfaced of him wearing the jacket in flight. The fashionable badge of honor hasn't left his side for the past 11 months, and he claims to have worn it at nearly 25 functions. He wanted to make the most of his time, and leaving it at home wasn't an option because he's only there every eight weeks or so.

"I took it with me. I never put it in a suitcase. I had it in my hands every time," Schwartzel said. "Only risk I suppose you take is when you go out to play the tournament and you have to leave it in the cupboard in the hotel room."

"The Face" has appeared in the Big Apple.

A week after an University of Alabama freshman hoops fan saw his own face go viral, Jack Blankenship brought his super-sized mug to Madison Square Garden to cheer for the Knicks on Monday.

It truly is a face only a mother could love.

It all started as a joke among seventh grade buddies. "We created this exaggerated face, and it became a big joke with all my friends," Blankenship told the Tuscaloosa News.

TV cameras caught a glimpse of his scowl, and soon it went viral. More than 1 million people had checked out Blankenship's grimace on YouTube as of Tuesday morning, and millions more had seen it on Jeff Eisenberg's post about the freshman. The 19-year-old even appeared on a segment of NBC's Today Show from Manhattan.

The engineering student is enjoying the media limelight, but fame has had an impact on his life -- specifically his grades.

Urban Meyer put in a lot of hours at the office as he won two BCS National Championships at the University of Florida. He stepped down to spend more time with his family in 2010, but he also missed out on a lot of time in one of the nicest houses in North-Central Florida.

Now that Meyer has settled in as the new coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes, he's hoping to unload his Florida palace. That means we get to take a look inside.

Custom designed and built for Meyer in 2006, the home is located on two acres in a gated community. Besides the covered pool, batting cage and sand volleyball court, the Gainesville Sun reports the mansion is decked out with Gator memorabilia. You'll find the 2009 Fed Ex national championship logo from the locker room as the game-room carpet. Sadly for the next owner, Meyer is taking all those goodies with him to Ohio.

While the average home in the United States has 2,169 square feet, Meyer's old place includes a stunning 6,719 square feet with six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Although Urban's pad was worth $1.1 million in 2011 according to property and tax records, it's on the market for $1.7 million, via Focus Real Estate.

There it is. Always on the calendar, mocking you. Same day every year: February 14th. Like death, taxes, and Law & Order marathons, it’s inescapable. Yet still you put it off. And then you buy her a heart-shaped box of cheap chocolate.

Right idea: Give her chocolate. Wrong idea: Give her bad chocolate.

In fact, in a recent Men’s Health survey, women listed chocolate as among the sexiest gifts they have ever received from a guy. But why does this dark, sinful concoction light our hearts afire and stir our feelings of desire? Chocolate not only contains compounds that make you feel good, but research has shown that eating chocolate also causes the brain to release chemicals that enhance mood and increase pleasure. Is chocolate the gift that keeps on giving?

Only if you put some thought into it, we say. So we took on the burdensome task of surveying the world of fine chocolates to find the top chocolate gifts she wants you to give her this Valentine’s Day.

Gnosis Aphrodisia Bar
Dotted with tart raspberries and sweet figs, we loved the bar's soft texture and fruity flavor. But the chocolate also contains purported aphrodisiacs that include horny goat weed, maca, dong quai, damiana, shilajit, and fo ti. Research on maca shows it may increase sexual desire in men, while a preliminary animal study on horny goat weed found it may help erections. Just save those details and mention instead that some of the profits from the handmade, vegan-friendly chocolate bars go toward planting fruit trees around the world. So thoughtful, you are.

The greatest beard in football is now just a memory.

Perhaps to accentuate the innovation behind the latest version of the Air Jordan, the venue to introduce the shoe was in a nondescript hangar next to the Teterboro airport in New Jersey.

As Tinker Hatfield, Nike's VP of creative design, put it: "Jordan is a basketball brand that is like no other. We have a lot to live up to each time we put these out."

The shoe has a futuristic look and cutting-edge engineering, but the look was inspired from wingtip dancing shoes worn in the 1920s and 1930s, Hatfield said. But the process of creating a basketball shoe from that idea -- and a high performance shoe at that -- was no walk in the park.

"You don't want style to diminish performance," Hatfield said. "We hope that we find the right balance where it's the best that it can perform, and it still looks great."

As defenses around the league have found out the hard way, Arian Foster made himself the best rusher in the NFL by having lightning reflexes and the ability to react quickly to any situation.

And as Super Bowl week moved towards its business end, I also found to my detriment just how sharp of mind the Houston Texans running back really is.

During the red carpet opening of the EA Sports Madden Bowl at the Bud Light Hotel this week, Foster, a keen impersonator with a sharp sense of humor, instantly picked up on my English accent and wasted no time in starting to make fun of me.

Sounding like a cross between Ricky Gervais and the Queen, Foster conversed with me in a British tone for a few minutes, with pretty hilarious results. Wanting to hold my own, I told Foster he resembled British singer Craig David as we bantered back and forth, UK-style.

Patriots wide receiver Tiquan Underwood caught just three passes this season and was not targeted in either of New England's first two playoff games.

That has not stopped him from getting all sorts of media attention this week. Underwood has gone overboard with publicity thanks to an eye-popping haircut.

"Got the logo in the back, fade it on the sides, something different, man," Underwood said. "I like to be different. I know it"s a unique haircut that not a lot of people have, so that's why I chose it."

Unique. That is one way to describe it.

Madonna stepped up preparations for her Super Bowl halftime performance by indulging in a flirty encounter with a nervous young NFL star.

Gerald McCoy, a defensive tackle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, used the Queen of Pop's official press conference on Thursday as a chance to make himself known to her -- and he got a better response than he could have dreamed of.

Despite being rebuffed when he asked the 53-year-old performer for a post-press conference kiss, Madonna made McCoy blush by admitted that she "likes 22-year-olds."

She also gave him some useful career advice.
