14-year-old Nick Gilbert (cool Twitter account) took the stage in Secaucus, New Jersey last night as the representative of the Cleveland Cavaliers and stole the hearts and minds of millions of viewers with his designer glasses and a stellar bow tie. Whether you hate Dan Gilbert, his father and owner of the Cavs, that's for another day. Little Nick has suffered from nerve disorder Neurofibromatosis since birth, making it a feel good story that the teen walked away with the #1 pick in the upcoming draft. And that's where this story kinda ends. The NBA will eventually lock out its players and this sport is in for a huge labor battle. If you think the NFL lockout is ugly, you haven't seen anything. More pics of Nick's cool adventure...JUMP!
There was some hubbub about the Preakness putting its new mascot on display to Baltimore media this week. The dude - Kegasus - is an obvious play towards the white, drunk fratties who enjoy the infield at Pimlico. Ever been to Pimlico? You won't catch our asses going into that 'hood unless there is an infield party at the Preakness, hence the need for a stupid mascot to promote being a drunken fool. The big news with this Kegasus character? The slick nip ring. Smokin'! Video of half man/half Kenny Powers...JUMP!
Just when we figured the Lingerie Football League couldn't pull another rabbit out of a hat with more ties to the National Football League, Gilbert Brown resurfaced yesterday at a press conference in Green Bay. Nope, the big guy isn't strapping on the pads for a comeback. Biggin' is back in football, but this time it's with the Green Bay Chill, an expansion franchise of the LFL. Oh, and before you ask, yes this is real and Gilbert is even coaching practices. Amazing, right?
Let's just say that the next time Finland is in contention for a hockey world championship you should reserve a flight for you and a buddy to visit Helsinki. The country is still drunk after Sunday's IIHF world championship victory and the partying that has lasted for two days. (Left) We have Finland goalie coach Pasi Nurminen going face first into the red carpet after a stellar climb down the stairs. (Right) We have the chick who decided to give her fellow countrymen a show during the street celebration (NSFW-ish). While the photos are epic, the face plant from Pasi is a can't miss. Video...JUMP!
Now that we have your attention. Look, some of you are writing in saying there are major issues with Busted Coverage since the conversion to the new theme.

You have no idea how stuffed our email gets with random photos of ridiculous ‘stuff’ that really has no immediate home on Busted Coverage. The photos roll in and our reaction is usually the same, “WTF are we going to do with that?” It’s a major dilemma, but the solution was to hire an editor who's job is to bring you the best of the best from the inbox. Here is there new showcase of epic fails, WTFs and other random garbage that now makes up “Busted Coverage’s Epic Moments In Failure.” Have a photo for this series? Email us.
As mentioned in yesterday's Cuff 'Em, the 2011 Bay To Breakers 12k footrace was held over the weekend and the BC editors have put together their winner's list for Best Costumes. For those of you not in the know, Bay To Breakers is in its 100th year in San Francisco and brings together the crazies, the techies and the downright out-of-their-minds together for a quasi-footrace. The object is to get drunk, have a cool costume and enjoy the sport of running or walking. Here are the best of the best costumes this year thanks to Sylvain & Tom.
The guy on the left is Everett Duke, a cherubic character who just graduated from Auburn and leaves the university via the photo of Gene Chizik feeding Cam Newton Calf. The photo was uploaded to Twitter on Sunday and made it to Buzzfeed this morning. The rest is history. What's the story behind Chizik holding a milk bottle for a calf? No idea. Everett didn't expand other than to say "Ever seen Gene Chizik feed a baby cow? Now you have." Full shot...JUMP!
Um, it had been a little dry on the teacher-coach-student-sex-scandal circuit and then Brittni Colleps stepped up to the plate in Arlington, Texas. Local authorities say this 27-year-old had quite a run recently with at least five students who became victims in an alleged sexual rendezvous with the now former freshman girl's basketball coach. After you see what's doing on the jump, we're pretty sure there is a crime here. JUMP!

"That sums it up, doesn't it," says the Fox Sports broadcaster as Mets fan wearing his crying baby mask heads for the exit after last night's extra innings 2-1 victory by the Marlins. Before you jump us for making fun of some dude with genetic issues, we're 99% that is one of these crying baby masks. If not, sorry brother.
As of this writing the Nats and Pirates are headed to the 9th with Washington leading 4-2 on what is a historic night in MLB 21st Century history. You are looking at $1 ticket, $1 hot dog and $1 peanuts night at a ballpark that is less than 5 years old and in a city where baseball was supposed to blossom into a force. Instead, you were pretty much begged to attend this game and as you can see from the following photos being posted on Twitter, the place was still practically empty.
