Rangers fan @millers_life sent word this afternoon that he was at last night's game against Tampa Bay and that he was so profoundly angered by this woman that we needed to see her in action. "Bottom of the 8th, Tex down 4 w the bases loaded last night. 16 rows behind home plate," Scott writes. We're not experts on the e-readers but that sure looks like a Kindle to us. Look, ladies, can you just act like you give two shits about that game? It's the bottom of 8 for God's sake. JUMP!
Just now noticing that Nick Johnson was in the lineup last night for the Orioles in a battle against the Blue Jays. Our hero, as you might remember, is having a rough season. He entered the game 0-for-23 for the season. Guess who went 0-for-3 last night? Yeah, things just aren't going Nick's way these days. He's now the only position player or DH to remain hitless. According to USA Today, Johnson will make $800,000 in 2012. Dude made over $100k this month without a hit.
There's nothing worse than sitting through a Padres game, watching dong shots fall short on the warning track and then puking all over yourself while some guy records it all and throws it on YouTube. From the look of this video Padres fan had a case of the stomach flu this week and couldn't keep down that veggie burrito and the $5.50 drafts. Best news for this guy is that he'll get at least 50k YouTube views for this spew. JUMP!
We loved this Rangers Fan of the Game segment on Tuesday. LOVED IT! Was going to upload it but MLB video goons, as we've told you, have a major beef with Jim Knox videos on BC so why waste our time uploading it. So some other guy did the deed. This is Screaming Banshee Chick and her Yankees fan ex-husband. They're divorced yet still share season tickets. Not kidding. And of course Knox finds them out of 47,000 fans. JUMP!
It's that time to play a game of 'Guess That MLB Sack,' a challenge to all of you who jersey chasers who think you know your sacks. This sack belongs to a guy whose recent relationship news caused some Internet buzz. That's the girlfriend on the left. They love dogs. He's a third baseman and was one of baseball's golden boys before they turned their attention towards Justin Verlander and Kate Upton. Need more hints? You suck. JUMP!
Nope, hadn't heard of Coast Carolina's DH Alex Buccilli until last night when his batting stance became all the rage during an ESPN3 broadcast. We all remember great batting stances that helped create Batting Stance Guy and a YouTube revolution. Forget all those stances. You haven't seen a batting stance as crazy as what Alex has for you this morning. Yes, that's an open stance. It's all about rhythm, says the ESPN crew. JUMP!
It's going to be one of those days around here. We're pissed off at MLB and have decided to push the envelope. The MLB goons don't want you watching :40 videos of off-the-field action so we'll go a different route and show you what @RangersGirl36 sent us last night. Yet another #RangersRack submission. That's right, MLB, we're promoting your asses via boobs. You know what gets more buzz than that stupid show with Kevin Millar? Boobs. JUMP!
Since we now know the MLB video goons are reading Busted Coverage on a daily basis, it would be the perfect time to tell you assholes how nice you are for blocking yesterday's Jim Knox video. You do realize that Jim Knox is like your Jerry Seinfeld, right? You do realize Jim Knox doing crazy shit in the stands causes people to watch games. Keeps them hooked through the 8th inning for his Fan of the Game promotion. Right? JUMP!
Must say we don't get too many bank robberies where a superfan goes with a tattoo and corresponding baseball hat. But that's exactly what Red Sox fan pulled off in this robbery. Hispanic bro just doesn't care. Police can use that tattoo to identify him all they want. Gotta catch him first. Look, wearing long sleeves is the obvious play here. Maybe it's a henna. Would this idiot be that smart? Our guess is no. JUMP!
Donovan McNabb played in only six games for the Minnesota Vikings but gets invited to all the cool parties this offseason. Here he is with Purple Jesus back in March in the Bahamas for a Vikings teammate's wedding. Crushed that? -350 on the crush line. In MLB news, 80 fans tried to throw harder than Jamie Moyer to get free tickets to a Fort Myers Miracle game. All they had to do was throw a 78 mph pitch. BOOM, free tickets. Nope, nobody could. Let's get rolling!
Big news out of Boston this afternoon concerning what is possibly bothering Kevin Youkilis this season. The guy is off to a smoking hot 8-for-46 start (.174) with only two doubles. Bobby Valentine called out the guy and the next thing you know all hell is breaking loose. Now comes news that Youk and Tom Brady's sister, Julie, got married in a very small wedding last week. Why get married during the season? Julie Brady is pregnant! JUMP!
There's a building buzz on the Internet this morning over the Royals fan sitting behind home plate during last night's game against Toronto. We checked the DVR and Novel Guy didn't bust out the book until the 8th and 9th innings when the Royals were trying to notch their fourth win of the season. It was 4-1 and most people were on pins and needles. Not Novel Guy. He got caught up on this reading and soldiered through until the final out. JUMP!
Obviously stupid ass parents in Pennsylvania don't understand that Babe Ruth league baseball is important to John Zahradnik. Do you want your son coached by a guy who'll just let umpires get away with shitty calls that cost your team a game? Or do you want a guy like John Z.? A guy who'll allegedly try to run over an umpire? You want to go to war with guys like John Z. Kicking dirt on home just ain't getting the job done, America. JUMP!
What the f*ck is going on with the sports world? Are we running out of filler for the 24-hour news cycle? Dropping espionage and _____-gate makes us feel like a Walter Cronkite hologram will show up after a commercial & kick Neil Everett's ass. Jesus! Can't we get a fake Steve Phillips press conference about Albert Pujols being homerless? In NHL news, the Rangers force a Game 7 while Gary Bettman battles the shits over the Blackhawks being eliminated. Let's get rolling!
Fathers, look at yourself in the mirror and figure out why your kids are tools to the point where they'll clone up like Brian Wilson and Tim Lincecum for a game in New York against the Mets (2-1 as I type). The little kid going with the Lincecum hair is cool because the former Cy Young is on the mound. And he's a kid. Doesn't know any better. It's cute. As for Brian Wilson beard, time to pack away the fake fur for at least 18 months. Stop being stupid, dorkwad.
Still holding Nick Johnson in your A.L. fantasy league? We have bad news for you fantasy dorks. According to ESPN's MLB projectors, the Orioles DH, who is off to a hot 0-for-23 start, will go an entire year without getting a hit. Of course it's crazy, but then again Johnson is well into April without slapping one through the infield. Who has the worst batting average in MLB history (minimum of one hit)? A pitcher. JUMP!
