We're one day into the Little League World Series and Twitter is already dropping Jerry Sandusky jokes at an alarming rate. Like this from @Weave7 - jerry sandusky said he would admit to everything he did if they let him watch the little league world series
#truefan(.) For those not very good with geography, Sandusky's cell is only 55.6 from the Little League facility in Williamsport. In other baseball news, Andruw Jones used to make these plays. Let's get rolling!
Back in November, Boston Red Sox sideline reporter Heidi Watney left Beantown for greener pastures. She signed on to join Time Warner in Los Angeles, covering the Lakers. Pretty cushy job out in L.A., right? Apparently not good enough for Watney as she is reportedly already looking for new employment...via ESPN. Heidi may be your new First Take host! JUMP!
What's more embarrassing than getting caught digging a booger out of your nose at a baseball game? How about itching your junk at the end of an inning during a Phillies-Cardinals game last weekend. Kinda embarrassing, no? Bad case of jock itch or you dealing with poison ivy on the package? Ball girl causing a griz? When are people going to learn, you can't be itching your junk at a game without a camera catching it. JUMP!
Are you out of work, behind on your house payments, the electric is about to be shut off and you need to pay...
Kate Upton has been MIA and won't get into a bikini. Justin Verlander seems to have locked her down so instead you guys are stuck with Miranda Kerr...sucks, right? Miranda is the latest model to get a one-on-one shoot with photographer Terry Richardson. This guy is a real head-scratcher. The dude got Kate Upton to Cat-Daddy and now has Miranda Kerr pulling his pants down in front of the camera. JUMP!
From the moment the Red Sox announced the hiring of Bobby Valentine, things have been rocky. Sure he had his cute introductory press conference, but that was long forgotten after the dreadful start the Sox had to the 2012 season. Then it was the Youkilis falling out. Now this...on Tuesday the Red Sox players requested a sit down with ownership on the state of the team and Bobby V. Twitter went nuts and wants to see Bobby V get canned...like now! JUMP!
Ryan Howard is scheduled to make $118,000,000 over the next five years, and the Phillies 1B has already made $62,000,000 in his career. Quick math = $180 million. That would be over 12 years. If he stays healthy, The Big Piece could add a few million to that total. Figure he ends up cashing $200m in his baseball career. So what's a blogger to get Ryan Howard for his December wedding? We bought him a $7.99 washcloth. JUMP!
What's exciting to an Indians fan in a 14-1 drubbing from the Red Sox during Sunday's game? A foul ball. Here we have Cummins diesel biggin' thinking he's about to land himself a $20 MLB souvenir. Of course Affliction bro has to step in to grab the ball, leaving biggin' to fall into that Budweiser Patio fence. Cummins should be commended, though, for giving 110% for that ball. You won't see that effort from some coffee sipper in Seattle. JUMP!
You know what's intimidating about the 20,000 sq. ft. house ARod is selling in Miami? (A.) The price (B.) Keeping the white walls clean (C.) The price (D.) Keeping finger prints off all the glass. (E.) That Cleveland Indians art on the wall. Seriously, in the history of BC, we've never seen an athlete house with this much glass. It's everywhere. Even the bathrooms have floor-to-ceiling glass. This place IS INSANE! JUMP!
Now, before I go any further, do realize that Donny Baseball hasn't owned this car since 2002, but it's still being promoted as Mattingly's old Corvair that he owned through the 1990s. Why did Mattingly own a junky Chevy convertible that was frowned upon by true car enthusiasts? Because southern Indiana chicks couldn't resist a baseball legend in a Corvair. It only has 110,000 miles! JUMP!
The following images of MLB team Facebook page status updates are 100% not Photoshopped. It seems a hacker attacked at least five accounts today with vicious messages that made it live. As you can see, the hacker(s) went to extremes to be brutally funny with a message like "F*ck Bill Murray" on the Cubs Facebook account. Oh, & Marlins fans, FREE Pitbulls! JUMP!
You might remember back in May when we were chasing Jose Canseco around Connecticut to keep tabs on how he was making and spending cash. We know of at least one night of gambling at Foxwoods while the guy owed the IRS $500,000+ because someone recorded Jose playing poker. Now comes word that he has officially filed for bankruptcy protection. JUMP!
You mean I can't get a bottle of water into a ballpark but this asshole can sneak a horse head mask by security? And how exactly does that happen? Into the Lexus luxury seats, to boot! (via @_JakeRussell) The big Olympic news this morning? An Aussie rower got bombed last night, damaged a shop, was taken to police HQ, hit his head and eventually went to the hospital. As for TV, you get Lochte & men's basketball. Let's get rolling!
And then there was new Derek Jeter girlfriend news. According to the NY Post, the Yankees legend is now dating lingerie model Hannah Davis. She's a Ralph Lauren model who has also spent time as a bra/underwear model. He's supposedly taking her to clubs and have supposedly been dating for several months. Guess how old Davis is. GUESS! She's twenty-friggin-two! Just Jeter being Jeter. The guy is brilliant. JUMP!
Busy watching the Olympics? There are other sports to worry about. Like baseball. Remember that sport? There was a fiasco last night surrounding the outcome of the Red Sox-Tigers game. The Red Sox had a 4-1 lead in the sixth inning when the rain really started to worsen. An hour and 45 minutes later, the game was called. Seems routine, right? Wrong. The Tigers had the bases loaded, tying run on first, winning run at the plate! JUMP!
That Barry Bonds cycling post last night brought up old memories for BC Twitter followers. See, Bonds is now looking like he did in 1991, which brought up Bobby Bonilla's name from the crypt. That led to: "Is Bonilla still getting paid by the Mets?" Um, yes, and Bobby received check #2 this year of his 25-year run of $1,193,248.20 checks from the team for deferring his salary. That's Bobby at the 2012 all-star festivities - high on the hog. Let's get rolling!
Remember in late May when I told you someone on eBay was selling a very expensive bike that belonged to Barry Bonds? Yeah, that was the same post where I told you Bonds is becoming something of a bicycling freak. Now comes word that Bonds over the weekend was bicycling around Aspen. How much does he weigh now? The guy in the neon green shirt is 6-5, 185. Bonds was said to be 6-2, 228 in 2007. JUMP!
You need any further evidence that the craziest bastards live in Florida? This should end the competition. Meet Ronald Brown. Yes, he's a complete loser. He's been a complete loser for a long time. Yes, he walks around with that horrible rug on his head. Yes, Ron has enjoyed his time as the Tampa Rays puppeteer. He even uploaded a Facebook photo of himself working a Rays game. It just happens that Ron allegedly wanted to eat children. JUMP!
In case you missed the news, the Yankees are in Seattle and decided to trade for Ichiro and his 2,500 career hits (in just 12 years). And just like that, the guy was suiting up for the Yanks and going 1-for-4 against his old team. Don't be sad for Ichiro and his dwindling career. The guy is making $17,000,000 this year in the final year of his contract. We're talking $129M in career earnings. In Olympics news, Usain Bolt says he's going to run a 9.4 100m. Let's get rolling!
