Dick tweets: "It is sad when ppl try to destroy a good man's career like Terry Francona . He is a WINNER & A GR8 GUY. Has a son & son in law in Afghan." And later added, "If reports r true Lackey, Beckett,& Lester drinking in clubhouse during games I would suspend them big time. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING if true!" Things eventually calmed down when Dickie was told they were drinking tall Coors & eating Hooters wings. (@DickieV)
Much has been made about the city of Detroit and its sports teams this week while the sports world has pretty much ignored the fact that the Texas Rangers are playing for their second consecutive World Series appearance. Not shabby. And we know another tidbit about Dallas/Arlington - they have much, much hotter women than Detroit. Take buxom (says their all real, boys) Shannon Richards. She's firmly behind her hometown Rangers. Take that, Motor City. JUMP!
The Boston Herald, known to be hardcore on sleazy gossip stories, is reporting today that Tom Brady's sister, Nancy, and Sox baldy Kevin Youkilis might be laying some Mass pipe. It's true that you haven't heard much from Nancy because she's usually off in Africa taking care of underprivileged kids. But the Herald says she's in town and mingling with the three-time all star at a Patriots game. Smart move, Youk. One step away from bagging Gisele. JUMP!
Look at Fox Sports Sideline Reporter Ken Rosenthal working the ladies last night during Game 3 of the ALCS. Perfect jacket. White as rice collar shirt. Bow tie just destroying the 100 level housewives from Grosse Pointe Farms. We've seen panty droppers within the media ranks (Mitch Albom, Bill Conlin, Tim Cowlishaw, etc.) but they can't command a bow like Rosey. In other news, the Tigers get a game in the series with 5-2 win. Game 4 this afternoon. Let's get rolling.
Rich in Sterling Heights, Michigan sent us this earlier tonight: "Watching the game and couldn't help but notice Asian dude just chillin in his Mets jersey at GM 3 of ALCS. What the f%^& is up with that?" He's being called the Awkward Asian and is believed to be an Endy Chavez fan. Yes, those guys exist. Look, homeslice, at least drop the top button and lose the dress shirt. Maybe haul your ass up the stairs and get a white t-shirt. Name him: firstname.lastname@example.org
Philly blogs are going nuts over this photo allegedly of Ryan Howard on a Rascal at a Plymouth Meeting, Pa. Whole Foods. @Hadji484 is the photographer of record for this shot and doesn't add any context such as canes, food in the basket, etc. For those not in the know, Plymouth Meeting is white suburbia, exactly where rich baseball players would live. Crossing Broad says Howard lives near this exact store. With the Eagles 1-4 this should drive talk radio the rest of the week.
BC reader Brandon sent a message this afternoon with news on how Front Row Amy is blowing up with the Milwaukee media. You might remember Amy from last week on Deadspin where she her rack became the Rally Towel from Brew Crew fans. Amy's boobs start bouncing and good things happen. Anyway, the TV dorks wanted an interview last night & of course Amy obliged. NBC 4's Charles Benson had the celebrity beat & met Amy's rack face to face. JUMP!
Sad, sad, sad night for Phillies fan. Sure, Diamondbacks fan is kinda disappointed, but they weren't supposed to be a Dream Team with the Dream Team Pitching Staff. Remember this piece on Philly's pitching staff in the NY Times Magazine? Remember how the offense couldn't possibly be shut down? Anyway, moving on, a big steaming pile of football on tap today. BC & Coed are in Knoxville for UT-UGA. Here is your complete TV listing for today.
We've got a hot Texas Rangers fan celebrating her team's AL West championship the only way you can -- by popping balloons with her ass. Oh, wait... maybe there are other ways to celebrate. Anyway, we've never been big into the whole balloon fetish thing, but we''re reconsidering after seeing these videos. Don't worry, they're SFW and we highly recommend you check them out. Hit it!
The Detroit Tigers upended the New York Yankess to earn a spot in the ALCS last night and they had a fitting celebration. It included goggles, Victor Martinez's son, milk, reporter Tom Verducci almost losing an eye and, of course, tons of champagne. We went and found the best of. Here are the photos and video of the Detroit Tigers ALDS celebration. Check it!
San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum is accused of $200,000 worth of property damage and squatting by a former landlord. The hurler was hit with a lawsuit this week seeking $350,000 in damages. Among other things, Lincecum, or someone who was in his home, allegedly destroyed or stole quite a few items in the furnished apartment. We've got all the juicy details and the complaint for your perusal. Check it!
Get knocked out of the playoffs and get a new buddy to hang out with for the rest of the fall and winter. Rays' manager Joe Maddon tweeted this afternoon: "First roster addition of the offseason. Winston Churchill Maddon the 1st." We dare you to say this dog isn't going to destroy Tropicana Field. Dare you. Totally going to go Schottzie like Marge Schott's old St. Bernard. Licking his balls in front of NY Times reporters. Dropping a deuce in front of Jaime Maggio. Oh, it's on.
Of course it has been a long time since our last installment in the "Baseball Cap Bank Robbers" series. To be honest, the robbers were getting too boring. Way too many Yankees and Raiders hats. For some reason today seemed like a great day to see what was up with the unemployed jerkoffs. We're into this series for obvious reasons. What makes a robber go with a certain hat during a robbery? Why one team over the other? Today it's the Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball hat. JUMP!
Seriously, we didn't know that Jason Isringhausen even pitched this year for the New York Mets. No clue. Thought this guy was long gone from the MLB, but now read that he's wanting another contract in 2012. Um, somebody has burned through his cash. Chew on this: Izzy has made just under $60mm in his baseball career. Guaranteed cash. Now he's unloading his $5mm Tarpon Springs, Fla. house. To say it's gaudy is an understatement. JUMP!
First of all, imagine living to be 97-years-old. Then imagine being a Brewers fan all those years. The team didn't even become the Brewers until 1970 when the Seattle Pilots moved to Wisconsin. In other words, being that old and having only watched your team in one World Series sucks. There have only been four playoff appearances. Two in the 20th Century & then 2008, 2011. Now imagine thinking someone stole your remote. Time to call 9-1-1! JUMP!
Pretty sure that's a chick. We'll just pretend the hair is pulled back and she's with her mom during yesterday's Diamondbacks victory in Game 3 over the Brew Crew. In other baseball news, the Rays are eliminated and the Yankees are probably going to eliminate the Tigers after that serious goes 2-2. The Daily News went with a simple, "Back In It," headline while the Post took another jab at A.J. Burnett with the "Mr. October" backpage. Let's get rolling!
