Alabama Student Newspaper’s Iron Bowl Basketball Game Filler Ad

Alabama Student Newspaper’s Iron Bowl Basketball Game Filler Ad

That is a full-page advertorial in today's Crimson White, the University of Alabama student newspaper. Easily the greatest filler ad in Alabama newspaper history & that's even counting daily newspapers. What's the occasion? Oh, the Auburn Tigers are in town for an 8 p.m. EST basketball tip. The Crimson Tide are 19-9, presumably a couple wins away from an NCAA bid & the Tigers are 14-14 & planning Spring Break trips. [Watch live on ESPN3]

ECHL Coach Loses Mind; Throws Water Bottles, Sticks At Ref [VIDEO]

Most coaches just slink away to the locker room, maybe hurl a few choice epithets at the ref when they get ejected from a game. Not Toledo Walleyes coach Nick Vitucci. No, Vitucci throws shit, or at least he did when he got ejected from an ECHL game against Wheeling last week. After getting tossed, Vitucci threw several water bottles and even a stick at the ref before leaving. Well done, Nick. Well done. JUMP!

Supposedly this was a guest appearance by Azusa Nishigaki, but something tells us she'll be making many more appearances on the UFC circuit thanks to her bikini abilities and the growing number of fans in Japan that are getting tired of Arianny Celeste.

Kudos to @DreadedDopeness for stopping in Kiln yesterday to snap this piece of tagging history we'd never seen. In other Brett Favre news, the Gunslinger recently posted for sale the cleats he wore in his 200th straight NFL start. Cost? $5,000. As a bonus, you get lots of small flakes of Lambeau turf still stuck to the shoes, an autograph and formal letter from Brett saying these are legit. He was 18-of-27 for 215 yards and 3 TDs during that November 2004 game. Let's get rolling!

Seems kinda odd that Scott Skiles, head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, would put this massive house on the market in late February. His team is 13-20, but he's under contract through the '12-13 season. Is he just tired of the 4,700 sq. ft. of spaciousness? Is he just downsizing to a 2,500 sq. ft. pad to cut down on window cleaning? Skiles doesn't seem to be a dumb guy. Dude won't need this place in about 8 months. JUMP!
