Told you so. We promised that Bryce Harper would be an injury replacement for Tuesday's all-star game and it happened this weekend. Fans finally have a reason to watch the game to see if he separates a catcher's shoulder with a collision at the plate like his hero, Pete Rose. In tightrope walking news, remember how we ripped ABC & that Wallenda dude for wearing a harness? Yeah, so some Chinese dude fell off a tightrope this weekend. BALLS! Let's get rolling!
As we told you this morning, Kate Upton was drinking in a suite at last night's Detroit Tigers game. It turns out that suite was Justin Verlander's suite. Yes, that Verlander guy from the MLB 2K commercials and your reigning Cy Young. A little investigating reveals that Upton in Verlander's suite wasn't by coincidence. These two are actually sharing some special time, according to Detroit locals. JUMP!
Look, I could totally care less that an underage Kate Upton was pounding draft beers last night at the Detroit Tigers game. What underage chick out there hasn't been hammered at a baseball game before her 21st birthday. Big f-ing deal! The real story here is that Kate drinking draft beer with that body is a recipe for disaster. Let's be honest, that beer is going straight to her gut & thighs. Not cool. JUMP!
The Stanley Cup is on its European leg of the Kings victory tour so why not stop in Slovenia to spend the day with Anze Kopitar. The center took the Cup to the golf course, on a tour of the city & to church for a cleansing. In MLB news, Bryce Harper is still waiting for someone to get injured to get a pass to the all-star game. WOULD SOMEONE GET THEIR HEAD OUT OF THEIR ASS! FIND A SPOT FOR THE GUY. Complete horseshit from this sport. Let's get rolling!
Remember when Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie went nuts on an umpire for a strike three call earlier this season? Remember how Brett slammed his helmet into the ground and it promptly hit umpire Bill Miller on the hip. Sensing a solid chance to make a buck, the Blue Jays are now trying to sell that helmet for $1,000 in their team store. Nope, not kidding. $500 less for Lawrie's helmet than Cam Newton's BCS pants. JUMP!
Kudos to the Pittsburgh Pirates this morning. Your hat was being worn by Euro soccer stud Kevin-Prince Boateng yesterday in Sardinia while he was on holiday with the World's Hottest Soccer WAG, Melissa Satta. Sure, more guys figure the story here is Satta's ass in this bikini. Wrong. How the hell does Boateng, a German, end up wearing a Pirates hat. Does he realize the Bucs have a 1 game N.L. Central lead? JUMP!
How great is Bryce Harper? Seriously, how great? The guy isn't even 20 yet and already has baseball by the nuts, just tickling your sack with his greatness. All-star game at 19? It should happen by Saturday at the latest. Anyway, BC reader @A_Kerala wants you guys to see what's going on with Harper's semi-tricked out Mercedes AMG. By the balls, people. JUMP!
Reader email from Ken in Coon Rapids, Minnesota: "You guys see the dumb Tigers broad flopping out her implants during 5th inn. of last night's game? Kid Rock's sister." Yep, went straight to our MLB TV account and there she was. Kid Rock's sister flopping out her boobs, but it sure looks like a bikini under that half-shirt to us. JUMP!
And the husband let her have the aisle seat. Ain't that some bullshit on the 4th of July? Of course the aisle is a man's domain. It's where he acts as an air traffic controller. The one who flags down the beer guy. The one who inspects the poon walking into his section. Grow a pair, dad. (via @Merredith). In NBA news, Steve Nash is headed to the Lakers, if you didn't hear. Here's how a guy with only 4,200 Twitter followers got 3,500 RTs out of the news. Insane. Let's get rolling!
Bryce Harper debuted his new Under Armour "Don't Be A Clown Bro" shirt during a MLB Network post-game interview this afternoon, but that wasn't the real highlight. The original Nats bro, Jayson Werth, interrupted the interview with a shaving cream pie to Harper's face. Yes, Bro Harper got clowned by Bro Werth and Internet bros totally lost it. Who's rushing out to get one of these shirts? JUMP!
We continue to beat the drum that if a hot chick wants to make it on the Internet these days, she has to get baseball themed pics into her portfolio. She should own the month of July. She should own the 4th of July. If you are a model and not in our 4th of July Baseball Babes gallery, there's a good chance your Internet modeling career is over. These ladies understand what men want on the 4th. Baseball. Skin. Bikinis. Jump!
Via: One man was shot and another hurt as he fled a robbery Monday at a Fort Worth game room, police said. The robbers, described as four men armed with two pistols, a shotgun and a rifle, are believed to be responsible for several other game room robberies, including two last month, Fort Worth robbery Sgt. Joe Loughman said. The latest robbery occurred about 4 a.m. Monday at the Big Ten Arcade. Know these punks? email@example.com
Hmm, wonder how Joslyn James feels about the new playoff system that obviously punishes Bama by making them play an extra game to win national titles? Love the new hair, by the way. Easy to maintain in the summer. (via @Joslyn_James). In MLB news, the Home Run Derby teams are set. What, you aren't pumped up to watch Mark Trumbo & Carlos Gonzalez (who?) go deep? Meanwhile, everyone is coming out of the closet this week. Let's get rolling!
And we have a new war between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia thanks to Tim McGraw's show at Heinz Field on Saturday. What happens when a fan hands Tim a Phillies jersey in honor of his father, Tug? Pittsburgh fans lose their s**t. Does it matter that the Pirates have sucked for 20 years? Nope. Tim was booed during a song that is a tribute to his father. JUMP!
The smell of hot dogs. The green grass. 45,000 fans on their feet in the 9th inning. Draft beer on a 90-degree day. It's that time of year when we suddenly forget - a little bit - about football and think about our youth when going to a baseball game meant autographs, ice cream batting helmets and the possibility that dad would cave to your cotton candy demands. Now we're all grown up and it's about baseball, beer & babes. Today we cover the babes. JUMP!
Roger Clemens turns 50 on August 4. Mid-life crisis time! So there was the Rocket this weekend, at Rice University, coaching some summer baseball in the coolest pair of camo cargo shorts you'll ever see on a guy who just beat the U.S. government in a perjury trial. Details on Clemens coaching gig are slim. That's not why we're here. The story has to be the camo shorts. And, do we detect new frosted tips? JUMP!
