God bless Pete Rose. I remember growing up in Dayton, Ohio in the early 80s, learning how to play baseball and being mesmerized by the only guy who gave maximum effort and didn't give a damn who got in his way was Charlie Hustle. Loved that. And then those stupid bums at MLB had to go and ruin the fun. Flash-forward to this past weekend in Vegas where @Drew_Hallett spotted our hero in his element - a Vegas sportsbook. JUMP!
Some guy on eBay has spent like 2 1/2 years trying to find a sucker willing to drop $75,000 on this Barry Bonds ticket collection. Ticket bro is still missing 399 tickets from the 2986 games Bonds played in so you don't get a complete set. See, this is why baseball dorks are always white, middle-aged and booky. You ever see a black dude dropping money on stupid shit like a Bonds ticket collection? Hell no you don't. Baseball dying one dead white guy at a time.
Kudos to Mets fan Rafael Diaz. If you're going to get arrested for running onto a field, make it a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Don't just run onto a field during the 5th inning of a Tigers-Yankees game. Wait until Johan Santana throws the first no-hitter* in Mets' history. Not only to you get to slap asses with R.A. Dickey & teammates, you also get a moneyshot on the front of the Post. Then you go to court on Sunday. JUMP!
Nothing is better than watching a baseball game and watching some idiot run onto the field. Well, during the New York Yankees-Detroit Tigers game, we got to see a guy run onto the field and give Nick Swisher a high five. Eventually the guards chased down this idiot and took him off the field. Pretty cool of Swisher to high five the guy. The New York Yankees ended up winning 5 to 1 against the Detroit Tigers. JUMP!
Hell no we never expected to see Tommy Lasorda & his FUPA at the Indy 500, let along on stage with some blonde sporting a decent rack & a tan. Realize this guy is now 84. Why was he at the Indy 500 at 84? Because someone likely paid him to be there. The guy had never been to the 500 in his 84 years. The smart play here from party organizers is to have a chick rubbing her rack on that FUPA. Keep the guests happy. Love it. (via @jenbeaver)
No joke, actually talked Captain Morgan U.S.A. into throwing a party for BC, Guyism & our YardBarker friends at Rub BBQ before tonight's Tigers-Yankees game at Comerica. We're talking pretty much unlimited specialty rum drinks, 250 wings, a few dozen Internet dorks & the possibility of a few Morganettes handing out drinks. 3 hours, more rum than you can possibly drink & then baseball. JUMP!
Seriously, Barry Bonds is into cycling. How "into" cycling? Like willing to drop approximately $16,000 on this Pinarello bike that's not your ordinary 10-speed that you used during college. Long story short, these Italian bikes are pretty much the best bike you can throw money at. Bonds made $188,000,000 in his career so of course the bro picked out the best. Now, you bike dorks can actually by Barry's ride on eBay. How legit is this bike? JUMP!
We're not going to say Aroldis Chapman's new "girlfriend" Claudia Manrique set up his Cuban ass, but there's a sneaking suspicion that the hotel room robbery the other night was an inside job. Would a 26-year-old chick, who's in community college, normally be picked up at the Pittsburgh police station by her husband if he found out his wife was cheating on him with a multi-millionaire pitcher? Claudia's did. JUMP!
Who lives in the Detroit area, is a Tigers or Yankees fan, reads Busted Coverage or Guyism and likes FREE Captain Morgan Black rum? We went out and put together what we hope will be a giant bash on June 1 before the Tigers-Yankees game. Hell yes we talked Captain Morgan to start serving your asses at 4 p.m. and going right to first pitch at Comerica. Don't say we never give back to our loyal readers. DETAILS - JUMP!
What has former Braves closer John Rocker been up to all these years after he became a hero to rednecks, Republicans & hate mongers? Well, there was the baseball comeback in 2005 and some work in real estate. In other words, he's been living off the $5,000,000 he made during his baseball career. And stewing with hate towards President Obama. And immigrants. And pretty much every other talking point you can think of. JUMP!
Top sign you might want to start cutting back on the draft beers & tasty San Francisco treats? Your giant melon gets smacked straight in the grill - on live TV - by a rogue piece of paper during a Diamondbacks-Giants game. True, the wind isn't nearly as bad at Pac-Bell as it was at Candlestick, but yesterday was an exception. Trash flying all over. Just hot dog wrappers PWNING your ass like a BOSS. Straight into the fat melon. JUMP!
Nope, not even going to waste time uploading a video to YouTube only to have the MLB voice censors block it in the United States. Instead, you're getting screencaps of fatty at today's Rays-Sox game going for this foul ball in the bottom of the 3rd. Just your normal foul ball until tubby bends over to get that souvenir. Look, you fat slobs, ever hear of a belt? We don't want to see your disgusting fatty underwear. Got it, bub? JUMP!
Those of you watching today's Rays-Sox game already knew there was some drama between these two teams on this Wednesday afternoon. Those of you at work don't know that Hawk Harrelson went absolutely nuts in a verbal assault on umpire Mark Wegner after he ejected pitcher Jose Quintana threw behind Ben Zobrist. Take a listen at Hawk going off the rails. JUMP!
We continue to be amazed by Ryan Braun's girlfriend Larisa Fraser & the lack of knowledge fans have for the hottest girlfriend in baseball. She still only has 2,400 'Likes' on Facebook. Doesn't use Twitter. Doesn't have a personal website. It's as if she's trying to fly under the radar as a lingerie model. It boggles our minds. Now she's out with new pics from the BronPrix lingerie line. It's a UK company. Companies in the U.S. – what are you waiting for? JUMP!
Via: A woman was stabbed several times in the neck Tuesday evening during a T-ball game at Meadow Elementary School outside of Benson, according to the Johnston County Sheriff's Office. The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to WakeMed. Her boyfriend, Kendall Basker, 23, was arrested at the scene, authorities said. The couple has three children together. She obviously didn't have a sammich ready when he got home from work. Lesson learned.
By the way, when did they start serving those giant margarita yard cups at NBA games like they do in downtown Vegas? You let grandma slam a couple of those and she's gonna ride Tony Parker like a mechanical bull. In other NBA news, the Spurs take a 2-0 lead and have like 20 straight wins. Um, they shot 55% from the field. In MLB news, Reds 3B Todd Frazier saved a guy's life on Tuesday. Some dude nearly choked to death on a steak tip. Let's get rolling!
No need to sugarcoat it, the Cubs suck big nuts this year. 11 games out. Worst team in baseball. The only reason to even pay attention to the team is to watch drunken Cubs fan get drunk and of course watch a home run shot bounce off his hand and onto Waveland. For example, yesterday featured such a bro and his pack of bro buddies. Cubs bro showed up on Memorial Day wearing his special tank top. JUMP!
It was just 2010 on Twitter when Jose Canseco announced to the world that he was broke, landlords had kicked him out of his residence and his life was a financial mess. His financial life in 2012 isn't better. He recently told a reporter that bankruptcy was in his future this year since he owes the IRS $1.1 million. But, there he was last week at Foxwoods Casino at the poker table. Picking his teeth with his fingers. Acting fidgety. On camera. JUMP!
So much anger amongst these Braves fans. Kinda feel sorry for the dude who's getting the shocker sign from Dale Jr. Might've been a helluva ass whippin' last night outside Fulton County Stadium (via @BrianEckstein). In NHL news, the Stanley Cup Finals begin on Wednesday night (8 p.m. EST, NBC). In MLB news, Barry Bonds wants back into baseball. What's he do on a daily basis? Watches cycling, track & the Giants. Straight from his mouth. Let's get rolling!
