Krista Glover, the wife of former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover, was arrested on charges related to domestic violence during the weekend of The Players Championship. She was released on $2,500 bond on Sunday.

In "First Call" today, Lucas Glover's wife is frightening on so many levels. Interesting improvements to PNC Park. Why is Patric Hornqvist playing in the world championships? Troy Polamalu's gambling impact. And Ian Cole's early Thanksgiving.

Might be time for a little marital help

The only thing worse than a diva athlete is a diva athlete spouse.

The wife of pro golfer Lucas Glover, Krista, is the leader in that clubhouse.

She was arrested Saturday on charges of suspicion of domestic violence and resisting arrest.

The allegations are that Mrs. Glover — in front of her children — verbally assaulted her husband for playing poorly at the The Players Championship.

He shot a 78. So, you know, clearly she thinks he deserves it.

But when Glover's mom tried to intervene, a physical altercation occurred and the police were called.

Krista Glover was arrested, but not before she refused to get into the police cruiser. Then, she damaged it by kicking the door during the ride to the police station, the Great Falls Tribune reported .

According to the golfer's accounts, his wife tends to do this when he plays badly.

What a catch!

PNC Park decor

Check out the new MVP mural in the field level concourse of PNC Park.

A couple of things there.

• It looks sharp.

• Where's the reserved space for Corey Dickerson? Am I right?

• They unveiled this after Andrew McCutchen was in town?

Hornqvist helps

Of all the Penguins who would probably need the rest of a longer offseason than the past two years, you'd think it would be Patric Hornqvist.

But the Penguins power forward is bringing his rugged style to the World Championships for Sweden. He scored a goal Sunday against the Swiss team.

The Swedish team won 5-0 and defeated Russia, 3-1, yesterday. Sweden plays Latvia in the quarterfinals tomorrow. The winner gets the U.S. or the Czech Republic.

Polamalu's gambling impact

All this talk about legalized gambling is putting an increased onus on officials to get more calls right more often.

A legendary Steelers play frequently has been referenced this week, reminding us of a point spread that was affected. You might remember Troy Polamalu's disappearing touchdown against the Chargers.

If you don't remember the circumstances or why it drove gamblers crazy, the Las Vegas Review Journal wrote about it then . There was mass confusion at the sports books.

Early Thanksgiving

Former Penguins defenseman Ian Cole posted this video to Twitter .

Even the most ardent animal activist would have to defend Cole if he took matters into his own hands here and turned that turkey into Thanksgiving in May.

Obviously this bird is trespassing, and Cole would be doing nothing more than protecting his home under "stand your ground" rules.

A slapshot to the gobbler should do the trick.
