Jeremy Shockey: NFL Lockout Will End Thursday, Players Report To Teams Friday

Just minutes ago, through our vast Rolodex of NFL contacts, we got off the phone with Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey who was busting it back to Miami from a Keys diving trip to pack his bags and prepare for the end of the NFL lockout. "The deal will be done Thursday and we're being told to report to Charlotte for a three-day camp the 22nd through 25th," Shockey said sounding like he was ready to hit someone. More details - JUMP!

Chris Bosh Wedding Photos Include Shaven LeBron James, D-Wade Wearing Shades

Ho hum, Chris Bosh got married this weekend in Miami and the biggest news from the event was LeBron James and his shaved face. Seriously, for the 'urban' community this event is totally bigger than the Ben Roethlisberger wedding coming up THIS SATURDAY! But leave it to some rich white dude to be the guy responsible for uploading the only 'insider' pics from Bosh's bash. Repeat, a white guy. PICS - JUMP!

Why do we continue to track Matthew Stafford's man cans? Because Busted Coverage happens to like the Detroit Lions and we see a guy who, photographed July 4th weekend, doesn't exactly look like he's been on a strict cardio regimen. It's no secret that Staffs likes his beer. We've documented his recent beer runs, yet Matt tells NFL.com that he's been staying fit during the lockout. JULY 4TH HOUSEBOAT BASH! JUMP!

Whether it was the little chubby USA fan raising his shirt after a goal, Michelle and Barry eating a dinner on a historic ottoman in the White House (Michelle drinking a 312?) or a black guy in Uncle Sam gear at a bar, America was riveted yesterday. Personally, the 105-degree temps had our asses firmly planted on the couch. For one July afternoon women's soccer really mattered. It doesn't go away without one look back at the fun. JUMP!

Those mitts - actually Titleist branded. See, you learned something this morning.

Jay Cutler-Kristin Cavallari Wedding Registry: We Bought Them A Reamer

Yes, it's officially Jay Cutler-Kristin Cavallari day, but we have perfectly good reasoning for each post. And the fun-fest is capped off with news that the couple's wedding registry has officially hit the Internets for their July 7, 2012 wedding. Can't get the ball rolling too early. It's a BC tradition to get a gift for the millionaire couple, so we went with a $3.95 yellow reamer. Reasoning? Not sure, but it's handy. JUMP!

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is not a smart man. Here's more proof -- he sports the same facial expression no matter what he's doing. Is it confusion, stupidity, indifference? Who knows. At least he has a hot girlfriend in a bikini to distract us from it. Seriously, the guy can't even sit at the Raleigh in Miami and drink booze without making a stupid face. At least Eli has an excuse. JUMP!

Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods' ex, has a new boyfriend. He's Jamie Dingman. He's rich, he's not terribly good looking and he's an opportunist, but he's the exact opposite of Tiger (except for the rich part). His new woman has an estimated $100 million fortune and she's ready to find some rebound meat. Looks like Jaime's timing couldn't be any better. Gold digger! JUMP!

In all honesty, a Cuban boating company has not signed Kelly Brook to an endorsement deal. That was just a headline we allowed Kevin The Intern to come up with to fulfill one of his internship requirements. Truth be told, Brook is titillating the locals in Italy where she's obviously getting R&R before her next red carpet appearance. Tough job, you know. Imagine living with 'those' on a daily basis.

It'll be the smallest ballpark in the MLB with only 37,000 seats, but will have two 600-gallon salt water fish tanks encased in bullet-proof glass. The Marlins (believe it or not) are trucking along with the new ballpark the city/county was pimp-slapped into building. The big questions for MLB is if anyone will care whether there is a new facility to watch the Marlins. Joe Robbie's upper deck has been closed & the Marlins are averaging 17k a game. Pics - JUMP!

Just as we were preparing ourselves for Debbie Clemens to take the stand in the Roger Clemens perjury trial, the U.S. government goes and screws up its case on Day 2.

The video included pieces that the judge in this case had barred. The jury saw the video, Clemens' lawyers objected and Judge Walton just ended the case.
