When in Rome, do as the Romans do. A group of MLB players touring Taiwan to play the national time did as the locals do earlier this week, stopping in Snake Alley to drink some shots of snake blood. The players watched the snakes get sacrificed and then threw back shots... some more than others. Whether the blood gave them special powers is debatable, but they dominated in their first game of the series.
What did we do this weekend? Well, BC Assignment Editor Monty had a pretty ho-hum time... at the Playboy Mansion! Actually, it wasn't a ho-hum time. The Karma Foundation put on a killer party and invited select distinguished guests like us. We really tried to get a +9729, but we couldn't make it happen, despite all of our clout. So, unfortunately, you'll have to live vicariously through our totally gonzo operation which are aptly depicted in these photos. 60 PHOTOS! Check it!
If you like destruction, then we've got something for you! The Igloo, the former home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, is being torn apart from the inside out. Although demolition didn't begin exactly when it should due to some local do-gooders, it's well underway now. Although we're sure there are a lot of memories in The Igloo for the people of Pittsburgh, it's still cool to watch shit get wrecked. We've got the photos. Check it!
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is supporting friend and St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa in one of the strangest ways we can fathom -- by wearing his jersey. It's kind of creepy if you ask us, but hey, we don't want to criticize the fashion plate that is Bill Belichick. Or do we? Here's the story of how this diabolical merger of Belichick and La Russa happened. Check it!
The Tim Tebow craze just keeps getting bigger. Tebowing has replaced planking as the cool thing to do on Twitter. Of course, we're all over this developing trend because we've got a nose for hard news! Where to Tebow, how to Tebow and why to Tebow . We've got it all for you right here, including the 24 greatest Tebowing photos from the Internet. Like a Tim Tebow jump pass... JUMP!
It's almost Halloween and you know what that means -- chicks in slutty costumes getting really drunk! Oh, right, it also means trick or treating and pumpkin carving. Since we'll all be seeing plenty of those scantily-clad drunk girls, we thought we'd bring you a look at something else -- sports-related jack-o-lanterns. Boom! Here's a gallery of the best we could find. Check it!
Well, well, well... what do we have here? Supermodel Adriana Lima in tight-fitting clothes getting her workout in? You bet your sweet ass! Lima was working with a boxing instructor in Miami yesterday, while her scrub husband Marko Jaric was, who knows, sitting around on his lazy, scrubby ass. We've got Adriana kicking some ass in the ring and maybe a few photo of her kicking ass on the runway too. Check it!
We know what baseball players' homes look like. We know what basketball players' homes look like. But where does a former NHL sniper from Russia reside? Pretty much exactly where you'd think -- in a penthouse condo in Miami that sits right on the beach. To hell with winter, hey? We take a look at Alexander Mogilny's Florida condo, which is on the block for a paltry sum of $6.8 million. Check it!
America's Couple are expecting their first child. That's right! Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and beauty queen wife Candice Crawford have one in the oven. Romo let the news slip today and, of course, we are all over it. Is this going to be the best-looking most gifted child ever? You bet your sweet American dream-loving ass it is! The fairy tale is real, people! JUMP!
What would you do for free tickets to an NFL game? We know these Buffalo Bills fans would dig through a pile of buffalo crap to get tickets to watch their team. While the premise may not sound too appealing, the video is hilarious, thanks to a gagging radio jock and some dumbass who keeps digging in the pile of crap long after the contest has ended. Get in and check it out you dirty pigs!
Chuck Liddell seems like a pretty normal dude, other than the fact that he could probably kill you with a kick to the head. Aside from that, he pretty much seems to enjoy the same things we all do -- getting wasted and working over broads. We've got some photos of Liddell doing just that in Hawaii. Red plastic cups, limos, hanging loose, and fun with escalators. The Ice Man Cometh! JUMP!
The St. Louis Cardinals are three games away from winning the World Series and making one crazy bastard considerably wealthier. A St. Louis man laid $500 down on two bets picking the Cards to make the Series and win the Series on September 12. Vegas didn't think too much of the Cardinals odds at the time, so the payouts will be substantial. We run you through the particulars. Check it!
Ah, to be a mediocre baseball player with staying power. That's what former Oakland A's and Colorado Rockies shortstop Walt Weiss was and it paid him well. It paid him so well, in fact, he was able to afford 73 acres in Colorado. Now he wants to pawn it off for a cool $4 million. Hey, why not? It comes with it's own baseball diamond so you can do your Field of Dreams thing. We've got the photos. Check it!
If you're in the NBA and you're a real baller, you have to let everyone know by getting a badass back tattoo. Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is in the NBA, a baller and, of course, has a back tattoo. It is, perhaps, the most unoriginal back tattoo in the league, though. Why? Rondo jacked the Rolls-Royce logo and had it burnt into his skin. Check out Rondo and the rest of the NBA's back ink in this gallery. Jump!
Notre Dame is a bully -- not so much on the football field like they once were, but definitely in the legal arena. The university is forcing a small school in Kansas that was leveled by a tornado and only reopened this year to change their Fighting Irish logo. Apparently, people were confusing the high school with the university... or something. This leads us to believe the Chapman High School football team really sucks, too.
Chicago Bears receiver Devin Hester got slapped in the back of his head in a casino in suburban Chicago by a gentleman named Dan Rago. The odd thing about the situation is Rago is seemingly a Chicago sports fan, which made us wonder, why would Rago slap a dude who scored two touchdowns against the Vikings this past Sunday? We break down the possibilities for you. Check 'em and tell us if you agree!
Mediocre Detroit Tigers pitcher Brad Penny, who didn't throw an inning in the postseason, is doing alright off the diamond... or at least he was. Penny is engaged to Dancing With the Stars hotttie Karina Smirnoff, but things apparently aren't looking so rosy for the couple. A trash mag report has surfaced that they're postponing their wedding. You'll never guess why. Here's the reasoning and some hot-ass photos of Karina to prove Penny's ass was out of its league. JUMP!
Look, it may not be our bag, but we'll always respect dudes who fight in UFC. You know why? Because they're bad motherf*^%ers! And we have evidence. If you're game for some of the most gruesome injuries, blood, gore and otherwise you've ever seen in your life, then we've got it for you. Frankly, it's like a train wreck -- if you can look away, or not look at all, you're better than us. That said, enjoy the gallery!
Cake is delicious and so when you combine cake and sports you sometimes end up with something pretty cool. New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire recently received a pristine cake featuring his new Nikes, so we thought we go on the search for some cool sports-themed cakes, whether they're made for fans or given to some athlete to celebrate a birthday, we've got a full gallery of some pretty awesome sports cakes. Check it!
The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators may not have much of a sense of humor, but we do. That's why we find Occupy Herbstreit somewhat hilarious. The movement, if you can call it that, is based around a blog and features a rogue college football fan holding up ironic signs that play off the Occupy Wall Street themes only are about college football. The movement is both small and young, but we've grabbed the best from Occupy Herbstreit. Check it!
We didn't think squash was a contact sport, but there's evidently a danger level, especially when Cameron Pilley is playing. Pilley holds the world record for hardest shot and, for reasons unbeknownst to us, his brother volunteers to take a shot to the back at close range. The result is a lot of pain and one disgusting-looking injury. Here's the video -- not for the faint of heart. JUMP!
Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin put his ignorance on display for all the world to see this week. Martin got in a flame war on Twitter with some fans after they said he was overpaid. It culminated with Martin saying he hopes his haters get AIDS and die. He then denied making the statement and closing his account. Brilliant! We've got the blow-by-blow rundown for you right here. Check it!
The Toronto Maple Leafs are giving those hockey-loving Torontans hope. They're off to a 2-0 start and they're proving to be a badass bunch, at least off the ice. Who knows whether their fast start means anything, but center Tyler Bozak and winger Mike Brown are at least cultivating a the bad MF'er persona off the ice. Bozak and Brown blasted some M16s in their free time. Should opponents see this as a message? You be the judge.
Sometimes it just seems like the officials have it out for your team and maybe they do, but we've never seen anything quite this blatant, especially at such a high level. We've got video of a referee pushing the ball forward after it was spotted to, seemingly, try to give Wake Forest a first down in their game against Florida State. Wake Forest would win 35-30. Home cooking? You be the judge.
We've got an update on the world's hottest WAG Ilary Blasi. The last time we saw her she was playing paddleball on the beach, looking smoking hot in a black and white bikini. More recently, she appeared on the Italian gossip show Verissimo. What was she doing? Other than looking smoking hot, we really don't know. We don't speak Italian. The important thing here is the update. And by update, we mean gallery of a hot-ass chick. Check it!
Broncos QB Brady Quinn got passed over Tim Tebow in yesterday's loss to San Diego. Meanwhile, his girlfriend, gymnast Alicia Sacramone tore her Achilles while training in Japan. The couple may be cursed, but they're still in love, dammit! And why not? She's gorgeous & he has no reason to stay in Denver now that the Jesus Boy era has begun. We salute your level of commitment Brady Quinn and we'll do it with a gallery of your hot girlfriend. Check it!
Scottish golfer Elliot Saltman isn't terribly good, but he has occasional flashes when he isn't getting banned from the tour for cheating, that is. Take this, for instance: Saltman nailed a hole-in-one at the Madrid Masters on Friday. It didn't really put him in contention, but at least he won't go hungry. Saltman's feat won him his body weight in ham. Now that's a lot of bacon! You want to know just how much ham? Check it!
We've got a hot Texas Rangers fan celebrating her team's AL West championship the only way you can -- by popping balloons with her ass. Oh, wait... maybe there are other ways to celebrate. Anyway, we've never been big into the whole balloon fetish thing, but we''re reconsidering after seeing these videos. Don't worry, they're SFW and we highly recommend you check them out. Hit it!
The Detroit Tigers upended the New York Yankess to earn a spot in the ALCS last night and they had a fitting celebration. It included goggles, Victor Martinez's son, milk, reporter Tom Verducci almost losing an eye and, of course, tons of champagne. We went and found the best of. Here are the photos and video of the Detroit Tigers ALDS celebration. Check it!
San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum is accused of $200,000 worth of property damage and squatting by a former landlord. The hurler was hit with a lawsuit this week seeking $350,000 in damages. Among other things, Lincecum, or someone who was in his home, allegedly destroyed or stole quite a few items in the furnished apartment. We've got all the juicy details and the complaint for your perusal. Check it!
Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is loaded. How loaded? He just forked over $70 million for a gigantic luxury yacht called The Lady Anne. Maybe he can throw another $40 million at Albert Haynesworth and use him as an anchor. We've got the particulars, we've got the photos, and we've got the story of Snyder's latest purchase, which says "I'm a bigger baller than you could even dream of!" Check it!
Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was on The Biggest Loser last night. Does anyone else see irony in this? Anyway, Tebow showed those fatties how to do some workouts and gave one hell of a motivational speech. Unfortunately, none of it worked, but Tebow should be used to that by now. We've got the video right here for you. Are you ready to get FIRED UP!? Check it!
It's a good day representative of hard work, sacrifice and commitment when you go down to the dealer to pick up your new Bentley Continental GT -- not that we would know about any of that. UFC champ Jon "Bones" Jones does, though. Bones called it one of the best days of his life. When you check out the specs on this bad boy, you'll know why. We've got them for you along with some pics of Bones' new ride. Pimp!
The moment you've all been holding your breathe for has finally come -- Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is back together with Kristin Cavallari. The, uh... super couple was spotted holding hands in Los Angeles today. The last time we checked, the Bears played in Chicago. Obviously, Cutler had more important matters to take care of. This is probably best for his emotional well being. In honor of the reunion, here's a gallery of Cutler and Cavallari's greatest hits. Check it!
Former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa, or as we call him White Sammy Sosa, is raising the bar on creepiness once again. He still has the white face, but now we know he shaves his chest. That's right, white skin and as little hair as possible. Well done Sammy! In honor of the weirdo known as Sammy Sosa, we present this latest installment of Greatest Moment in Sammy Sosa White Face. Check it out!
The Milwaukee Bucks' Stephen Jackson has a new rap video for his song "The Season" and it's, uh... we'll let you decide. If you like videos with lots of bling, piles of money laying around, talk of the streets, dudes hangin' with the homies and stuff about the NBA lockout, this is definitely up your alley. Stack Jack, as Jackson calls himself, is no Eazy E, but he's definitely something... Check it!
