From Joe Buck to Ron Washington to Bud Selig, nobody was spared in last night's all-star game tweet-slaughter. Yes, this game still decides home-field advantage in the World Series. Looks like that means four World Series games in Pittsburgh - in October - for the first time since 1979. Anyway, the Twitter retards did their thing like normal instead of maybe going for a walk and enjoying summer. JUMP!
Via: Police are searching for a suspect who robbed a sandwich shop on June 29. Around 1:35 p.m., a man entered Lenny’s Sub Shop at 11420 Dairy Ashford and placed an order. He walked to the register where he showed the cashier a gun and demanded cash. The employee gave him some money and the suspect fled. He is described as a slender, African-American male, between 35 and 45. Note: the robber walked with a limp!
If MLB has done one thing right over the last couple of years, it would be in the merchandising department with the invention of the cleav shirt. Kellie Pickler last night wore one during God Bless America. Ladies, get one of these. In mascot news, Alabama voters have spoken on what is the state's strangest high school mascot. The Highland Home Flying Squadron takes home honors. Bama School For Deaf Silent Warriors was robbed! Let's get rolling!
Have you ever listened to Robinson Cano speak during an interview? He pumps out decent English, enough to communicate with the American press corps. However, it's obviously not his first language. That said, something stood out last night on Twitter. Perfect sentence structure. Perfect comma placement. Not a misspelled word that we could find. JUMP!
Our friends at 98.7, Amp Radio, just sent a link to photos they say are Kate Upton and Justin Verlander enjoying some quality bar time last week after that Aerosmith concert we told you about. BC reported over the weekend that there was legitimate chatter about Upton & Verlander hanging out and this should now solidify that theory. Of course you know Kate was spotted in Verlander's box. This, however, takes this story to a new level. JUMP!
Listening to Robinson Cano get booed last night at the home run derby brought back so memories for us and the history of Busted. Think way back to Christmas week 2009. Cano and the Yankees had just come off a World Series title, he batted .320 and finished in the MVP voting. We received an email that week from a woman named Maria. She wanted us to see Robbie bending over a blonde in Miami. JUMP!
Goddammit, Chris Berman is brutal as the voice of the MLB HR derby. Did you hear him get corrected by George Brett when he said a ball was sailing to Omaha? Brett quickly told the blowhard that Omaha was the other direction. White guys get two big days a year to vent on Twitter about Chris Berman: NFL Draft night & derby night. And these f-bombers didn't disappoint. Use Berman & f*ck in a sentence - JUMP!
This video might be old, but it's new to us so it's getting play today as all eyes descend upon Kansas City for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game. Of course you've seen pissed off Little League coaches screaming at umpires. Those videos are a dime a dozen. What about a pissed off umpire ripping off his gear to fight a coach? Ever see that? No? Now you have. JUMP!
Yet another first in Busted Coverage Cuff 'Em history. Back in March, we told you about the first known new Marlins' hat logo bank robbery in Connecticut. It was believed to be the first Miami Marlins baseball hat robbery in United States history. Now we have a bro ripping off a bank in Minnesota wearing the orange Miami Marlins hat. JUMP!
(Via @cjzero) What do we take away from the home run derby? The host city still loves it, still buys tickets and still goes crazy hoping to catch a baseball. What's the alternative? A fielding skills competition? The big winner from last night, besides Prince Fielder, has to be this kid. He snagged three HR balls. By the way, ESPN fired another intern at the end of the derby thanks to this Fielder logo fail. Let's get rolling!
Like you really care what is happening right now at the MLB Home Run Derby in Kansas City. Of course you want to know how many dongs Gronk dropped at the Triple-A All-Star Game Derby. Word on Twitter is that the Pats tight end hit at least shot out of the park in the first round. BC Editor Matt Mac is at the festivities in Buffalo and Gronk might have won the celebrity derby with eight HRs in the finals. Oh & he's doing this in basketball shoes. JUMP!
You losers always cry about your shitty jobs, miserable lives and how you hate being unemployed because chicks don't like unemployed losers. Do you live in Miami? Even remotely close? Are you remotely in shape? Have a sense of humor? Enjoy bodypainted chicks? Our friends at The Clevelander Bar have the perfect job opening. They're seriously hiring a pool boy for the Marlins Park pool. JUMP!
Did you expect big celebrities from yesterday's all-star softball game in Kansas City? Only three chicks of importance even showed up: Chrissy Teigen, Jennie Finch & former American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart. Yeah, HUGE year for this game that should be mothballed. So of course all eyes were on supermodel Teigen. She obliged by kissing Steve Garvey & some local guy. JUMP!
IT'S HOME RUN DERBY TIME! BACK, BACK, BACK, IT'S NOT LANDING UNTIL IT HITS EASTBOUND I-70. THAT BALL IS HEADED FOR OKLAHOMA! BACK, BACK, & THIS ONE IS GONNA GET WET! (Enter your variation of Chris Berman call here.) Anyway, a bunch of foreigners & Prince Fielder will try to hit dongs tonight. Meanwhile, Wisconsin already held its dizzy bat HR Derby. It went well. JUMP!
When the Yankees and Red Sox face off, drama follows. Usually it occurs on the field, but with the Yankees winning 3 our of 4, this weekend's drama came from a scrub. Red Sox relief pitcher Vincente Padilla ran off his mouth at former teammate and current Yankee Mark Teixeira. The comments ranged from sexist to racist, with Padilla calling Teixeira a woman and saying he was prejudice against Hispanics. Of course Twitter went nuts. JUMP!
Remember, parents, little Bryce is 99.9% likely going pro in something other than baseball so no need to fight other parents at a Little League game. What? He might get a $50,000 college scholarship from baseball? Hell yes, throw down on the opposing parents! Here we go, welcome to Georgia where parents don't mind whoopin' some ass at a game. Get it, biggins'. JUMP!
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!
