JT over at 25Stanley.com (best French NHL blog on Internet) sent an email in English this afternoon to tip us off to Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang and the beefer he's been partying with this summer. Her name is Catherine Laflamme and, according to JT, she had a minor run as a B-list reality starlet on Canadian TV. This summer, however, she's been vacationing with Letang & his cash. Not that we blame him. Look what's doing - JUMP!
Yes, Kevin Love was actually jumping up and down to swat a volleyball in the middle of Times Square this afternoon as part of his new endorsement deal with Jose Cuervo. You might remember the most famous NBAer to ever play beach volleyball. Cuervo, in its marketing materials, mentions Love as a possible qualifier for the Jose Cuervo Pro Volleyball Series stop Aug. 26 in California. But for today, he teamed with lovely Jess Gysin for some press publicity. JUMP!
Major props to the Big 12 Conference this year for spicing up media day by including school cheerleaders, according to Star-Telegram reporter Mac Engel. We've been to a few media days in our lifetime and they're giant sausage fests where TV guys walk around looking for mirrors. Finally, a little something for the print guys to look at instead of Internet porn while Art Briles mans the mic. Photos - JUMP!
Can we blame Jimmy Clausen for being two minutes behind Cam Newton getting into Carolina Panthers HQ? Of course not. Jim had to throw on his bracelets, figure out which bandwagon shirt to wear and what hat would scream "The starting QB job is mine." Exactly how does one prepare to hold a clipboard? Huge hit to the ego, no? Anyway, Cam's in camp and remaining stoic. Tim Tebow is in, too. Dude looks like he's ready to run over a Gatorade machine. JUMP!
Seriously, had mushrooms for lunch and totally regretting it right now. About 25 minutes after finishing off the last fungus, it just happened that BC came across the Dave Duerson brain dissection video that The Guardian has uploaded for the world to see. Dave was serious about this brain research stuff, going as far as texting his wife “Please, see that my brain is given to the N.F.L.’s brain bank." Well, Dave, it happened. And here is the video. JUMP!
Our friends at Dirty Tackle introduced us this morning to Leicester futboler Paul Gallagher. Must admit, we'd never heard of Paul - ever. That all changed when we got a look at Paul's spanking new Twitter account and certain tweets coming from his wife Hayley. Paul opened his Twitter account with a bang, telling followers that he was off to bed to enjoy his hot wife. He's also been known to upload photos of his deuces. POWER COUPLE! JUMP!
We figured the Jonathan Toews chick, Gabrielle Velasquez, had her one-day Internet run yesterday and things in her life would go back to normal. Not so. Our inbox had more photos of Gabrielle waiting this morning. But there is a strange twist to who sent the pics last night. They came from an email account at Fletcher Jones Imports in Chicago. Yes, that's the car dealership where Ms. Velasquez works. Pics - JUMP!
Remember whitey Mark Madsen and his goofy NBA championship celebration dances? Yeah, he was regaled in the black community as a laughingstock and his street cred was about as low as humanly possible. Well, black man, looks who's back and has his name in a court case over a domain name, $110k and eBay. A guy is going to jail and it's all over a web domain. After this story you won't be laughing at Ellsworth ever again. Seriously. Details - JUMP!

Even if you hate the Brian Wilson beard schtick and/or Barack Obama, you must admit that yesterday at the White House was one of those moments. The Giants were in town to visit Barry and be congratulated for winning the World Series. We pray....PRAY....that Lincecum hit the head and burned a joint. And documented it. Baseball needs it. The White House needs it. And it would be great for Internet pagviews. More - JUMP!
Alexander Ovechkin continues to travel the world this summer as part of his off-season training regimen. He was in the U.S. Then Canada. Then Russia. Now comes news this weekend that he was hanging in the Russian state of Dagestan at some random soccer match that turned into a fashion show. Somehow Ovechkin ended up wearing a strange scarf and black coat. The locals thought it was a riot. We kinda smiled. JUMP!
