So, Magic you sure buying the Dodgers was the right move for you? Looking a little sleepy last night. Oh, and what's up with being forced to sit with that buffoon Frank McCourt and his rebound beef? What did we learn yesterday from baseball? Hitting will be an issue for a few clubs like: Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Chicago & Miami. In NBA news, good to see a solid effort from Dwight Howard last night. Total dick. How can anyone root for this idiot? Let's get rolling!
So it appears that middle finger salutes from fans will quickly become a 'thing' in Major League Baseball this season. Last night we had Marlins homeboy saluting. Now comes Pirates fan flipping off Phl 17 during what should be a celebration of a new start, green grass & good will amongst fans. Anyway, did you see a fan middle fingering on TV? We want to see them this season. Send them in: firstname.lastname@example.org (via @CrossingBroad)
Maybe one of your Miami bros was texting you last night about his "AMAZING NIGHT" at the Marlins game and telling you all about the new ballpark. How his 100 level seats were "SO F-ING AMAZING" and that there isn't a bad seat in the house. Guess what that bro was missing out on? Body painted go-go dancers at The Clevelander, the center field trendy club that'll cost you $75 a ticket to enter. Here's what you get for that money. JUMP!
Hey, look at us over here having our third Opening Day! Remember us? Baseball? America's Pastime? Nope, no Photoshop involved here. This is actually what was tweeted out by the fine folks @MLB. Sense any desperation? They're only kicking of 'Opening' Day on the same day as Tiger Woods tees off at The Masters and the NFL hears Saints bounty appeals. HELL YES, LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED. Don't forget, $10 tickets to Mets games! (via @MLB)
BC fan Alan in Clearwater sent this last night: "Was watching the pregame with my son and this is what Marlins fan does on Opening Night. Bunch of moron bandwagoners." While middle finger Marlins fan is hilarious, how about Mets fan by Kruk trying to get TV time. That's the real loser. As for Opening Day, that only applies to 7 locales this afternoon. That's right, Opening Day only involves 14 out of 30 teams. Rest of you can wait until Friday. Let's get rolling!
The legend of Jeffrey Loria being a Grade A asshole are legendary and go back to his days of holding the city of Montreal hostage over a baseball stadium deal. His charade eventually found its way to South Florida and the Marlins franchise. He eventually got his wish for Miami taxpayers to foot most of the bill to build Marlins Ballpark, which just happened to open tonight. What does he do on Opening Night? Has Muhammed Ali throw out the first pitch. JUMP!
RAFAEL FURCAL GETTING NAKED IN THE CARDINALS DUGOUT! FURCAL WITH HIS GAME PANTS AROUND HIS ANKLES! ON ESPN! SFW, YET SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES! FURCAL MAKING UNI ADJUSTMENTS! Everyone can relax, just realize that this Marlins Ballpark offers multiple camera angles and this is what you'll be getting to look at this season. JUMP!
Who's in the mood to drop between $595,000 & $19,800,000 on a house these days? Are you a baseball junkie who wants to live in a house where your hero has slept? If you're in the market for a new pad and have the money, we suggest these 12 homes that need a buyer. Help these cash strapped former & current millionaires get out from under houses such as Adrian Beltre & his 15 bath mansion. Here is the ultimate piece of memorabilia. JUMP!
Buried deep in a report from the Dallas Observer on the new food offerings at Texas Rangers games this year was a tidbit about the $26 'Champion' Dog that has taken the ballpark hot dog to the next level. You might remember this beast as the 2-foot meat missile that also includes runny cheese, onions jalapenos and some chili sauce. The big question from us was whether there would be any morons who'd eat the meat. Answer: YES! JUMP!
Baseball gets started for real tonight in Miami where the Marlins 'officially' open their new 'ballpark' that just happens to include a pool in left field. As you can see, the pool has already been christened by a couple of bikini chicks. Tonight the pool 'officially' opens against the Cardinals on ESPN. As for food, you'll be able to purchase lobster rolls, veggie burgers and lots of other crap that doesn't resemble a hotdog. The real fun at Marlins Ballpark - the window washers. Let's get rolling!
We're sure they love him in St. Louis, but former Dodgers shortstop Rafael Furcal is persona non grata in Los Angeles. That's what happens when you hit .197 in your last season with the team. That's probably why Furcal is giving away his Los Angeles house. Dude is about to take a loss of almost $500,000 to get rid of his fancy pad in the suburbs. Frankly, it will be nice to wipe his memory entirely from the area. House photos - JUMP!
Jared Sullinger took a slap to the face from a Kansas player in the second game on the Final Four tonight. The Kansas player went right for the face instead of the ball. The Kansas Jayhawks took on the Ohio State Buckeyes. CBS decided to show us how "flexible" the Kansas cheerleaders were in the pre-game show. Between that and the #kuboobs phenomenon, Kansas is winning in the hottest women. JUMP!
Yeah, they do things a little different down in Mississippi. Like eating fire for breakfast. No bacon and eggs, no hearty bowl of cereal. Fire, people. Ole Miss assistant baseball coach Cliff Godwin demonstrates just that in this video, which we're sure will be a hit with recruits and badasses everywhere. Godwin downs some fire for breakfast and his buddy, who's entirely too serious about the whole thing, yells "game day!" Way to go, brah! JUMP!
The bad news for Phillies pitcher Michael Schwimer this spring came around March 20 when he was sent to team's minor league camp. The good news: Schwimer recently locked up girlfriend and BC favorite Missy Coles to a long-term free agent deal via an engagement ring. What does this mean in the grand scheme of the WAG-dome? Not much other than the fact other ladies coming through the Phillies WAG pipeline must stay on top of their game. JUMP!
Via: A man claiming to have a weapon robbed a Hampden Bank branch at 475 Longmeadow St. of an undisclosed amount of cash Thursday afternoon, police said. The lone suspect walked up to a teller and handed her a note demanding cash, he said. No weapon was shown but it was implied in the note that the man was armed, he said. So this one should be easy. Black dude who looks like David Ortiz...Sox opening day tickets...lots of $20s. GET HIM!
If you do any flying out of San Francisco, you might find a curious sight on the runway -- a themed San Francisco Giants Virgin America plane. Yeah, it sports to hometown team's logo, but it also sports a beard because, why the hell not? The great thing is, you can fly on it. It's not a team charter. It's a commercial airplane. So if you're a huge Giants fan, then this is probably the only way you should travel. JUMP!
