That's right, punks, two days in a row with a Fenway video. Yesterday's 1997 Jorts three-way speaks for itself, while today we check in with Red Sox vendor working on his Somali water jug carrying technique during last night's Sox-Yankees game. No way that is beer. No way. If Vendor Boy wants to really impress us, we want to see him carry 16 Buds on that melon. Anyway, Beckett had to concentrate thru this craziness - JUMP!
The Fox analysts had an interesting analysis on what it would take for Cole Hamels to dominate the S.F. Giants yesterday. And dropping a deuce was just the beginning of what Hamels had in store for the World Series champions. Cole went 9, gave up an earned run and dominated S.F. in a 2-1 Phillies' victory. Something tells us his curveball was dropping off the table. Didn't see a single out but the deuce was definitely dropping.
If Ryan Braun played baseball on the East Coast there's a good chance this guy would be a top-20 most recognized athlete. Instead, he's worth in the neighborhood of $105 million (via his Brewers contract) and barely makes a blip on the Twitter radar for his work this week as a guest judge at the Milwaukee Bucks dancer tryouts. But there was the Hebrew Hammer, taking time out of his baseball schedule to tell ladies if they are worth of his shaking it for the Bucks - JUMP!
Well, it seems like we have a serial bank robber in St. Louis who has a thing for teams in the N.L. Central. Authorities say the guy you see here in an Astros cap (notice he's still sporting the sticker!) has used a couple different National League disguises to keep cops at bay as to his identity. Listen up, BC Nation, let's get us some bank robber reward money. Scared to turn in Carlos Lee? We aren't. JUMP!
Busted Coverage Assignment Editor Monty McMahon is a lifelong Milwaukee Brewers fan. He's lived through years of Tony LaRussa being a huge crybaby. Tony's antics in last night's heated Cardinals-Brew Crew game sent Monty over the edge. If you are a Cards fan, get ready to hate our editor. If you hate Tony LaRussa, get ready to be in tears. And if you cheer for the Brewers, here is your new hero. Monty unleashes - JUMP!
Would a highlight from an August game featuring Seattle and Oakland make the Morning Twitpic post? Nope. But when you combine a perfectly fair ball, an Ichiro lookalike and fan interference that is post material. Thanks to eagle eyed @burnSTYLEr for the find we get this hilarious look at Ichiro dude trying to comprehend why he's about to get booted into the Seattle darkness. More caps - JUMP!
It's rare for Stubby Clapp to get an appearance on Busted Coverage so he decided to take his argument with an umpire to the next level yesterday during a Single-A game in Troy, NY. Clapp, possibly perturbed by 3,000 screaming kids, loses it when it appears his player was hit with a pitch. The umpire says no. Clapp, a guy who only had 5 MLB hits in his storied career, is having none of the umpires $%^#. Video - JUMP!
Kudos to @mikeydangelo for this snag from Sunday's Pirates game where Starter jacket dude braved the heat with his 1993 coat that had been stored in the attic since Sid Bream retired. Why the coat? Cold? The heat index from Pittsburgh to Denver has only been 100+ for the past three weeks. If you know Pirates Coat Pete, email us his details and we'll do the rest. It's a must to get this guy some publicity for his suicide attempt. email@example.com
The headline should include "Here is what....Wrigley looks like....from the rooftops..." where you couldn't see Paul McCartney perform last night, but you were still amongst your hipster friends. The Beatle was in town on his North American tour and did what the Cubs can't do in late July - fill the seats. Somewhere there is a baseball purist out there shaking head over the shame associated with defacing the old girl with a concert. Pics - JUMP!
According to the Detroit Tigers’ in-game Twitter photographer: Dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio turned the #Tigers dugout into a ballroom floor.…
The name Manny Ramirez wouldn't have crossed our minds on a lazy summer Friday if it wasn't for SportsFeeder1 and his research into Manny's whereabouts. With a piqued interest in the latest from Manny's retirement, we sent BC Photo Editor on a wild goose chase. Figure out what Man Ram has been up to. Well, it seems the disgraced 'roider has been hanging at the Fontainebleau and taking a flight to Toronto.
We figure this is the closest you losers will ever get to the caliber of a woman as Marilyn Monroe, so listen up. Some auction house called Heritage Auctions has a baseball on the bidding block with only 5 days remaining and it holds the touch of lips from the most famous WAG in sports history. We're talking lipstick marks from Marilyn Monroe and an autograph from Joe DiMaggio. Open up the wallet and splurge. The man cave deserves it. JUMP!
There are strict requirements for any person interviewed on BC. The individual must be capable of telling a sports-related story and actually have favorite sports teams. Today we catch up with Penthouse Pet Aimee Sweet, a New England native who has interesting rooting interests. She's a Celtics, Patriots and Bruins fan. And a Yankees fan. Seriously. It's like one of the most taboo choices a Boston fan could possibly make. Her reasoning & a party story with Lonnie Paxton - JUMP!
Three Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and several NY Yankees took time this morning to visit a young girl's lemonade stand to help raise money for Special Olympics. But the big news for BC readers was the lemonade spilled on Kate Upton's skirt. Um, holy #$%^ that is a spectacular thing to wear to a charity event. Totally made Robinson Cano take notice and we know he's game for white girls. Just has to kick chubby Andruw Jones to curb. JUMP!
And to think we were sitting around the office this afternoon wondering what ever happened to journeyman, defensive specialist Doug Mientkiewicz. It came to our attention that a guy who played 12 seasons and didn't break 70 home runs (career) during the steroid season made $13,000,000 in salary over his years of service. Dude bought this Coral Gables, Florida house way back in 2003 and is ready to sell it for a profit. Details & the dining room - JUMP!
Twitter is going bonkers this morning over last night's Braves-Pirates possible mammoth blown call by umpire Jerry Meals. New replay angles show Meals might have been right. He says it was probably a blown call. At this point all we know is that the Twitter-verse is using Meals as its punching bag this morning. No matter which side you're on, the humor from these tweets will help you smile during yet another boring day at the job. Meals Tweets - JUMP!
