It was just 2010 on Twitter when Jose Canseco announced to the world that he was broke, landlords had kicked him out of his residence and his life was a financial mess. His financial life in 2012 isn't better. He recently told a reporter that bankruptcy was in his future this year since he owes the IRS $1.1 million. But, there he was last week at Foxwoods Casino at the poker table. Picking his teeth with his fingers. Acting fidgety. On camera. JUMP!
So much anger amongst these Braves fans. Kinda feel sorry for the dude who's getting the shocker sign from Dale Jr. Might've been a helluva ass whippin' last night outside Fulton County Stadium (via @BrianEckstein). In NHL news, the Stanley Cup Finals begin on Wednesday night (8 p.m. EST, NBC). In MLB news, Barry Bonds wants back into baseball. What's he do on a daily basis? Watches cycling, track & the Giants. Straight from his mouth. Let's get rolling!
Jose Canseco took to Twitter today to start the campaign for him to be voted into the All Star Game. This isn't the first time that Canseco has taken to Twitter for crazy things. He has also tried to find chicks to date through that medium. I highly recommend that you check out the responses to this tweet. Will Jose Canseco make it into the MLB All Star Game? Probably not, but crazier things have happened. JUMP!
Remember the Mother's Day umpire video that "blew up" the Internet a couple weeks ago and was discovered by Busted Coverage? Yeah, well it seems we have another umpire that's just a day or so away from fame on SportsCenter, the front page of Yahoo, sites like Reddit, the Daily Mail, etc. Say hello to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Umpire. How can't this guy be the newest Internet umpire celebrity with a strike three looking call like this?
We've now made it to Memorial Day weekend and figured it was time to check in with our MLB WAGs To Watch in 2012 list. There have been WAGs dealing with injuries, WAGs dealing with slumps and even one WAG dealing with her MLB meal ticket (Brett Lawrie) being suspended for throwing his helmet and hitting an umpire. We've had a WAG breakup & a surprise rookie WAG come out of nowhere (Ann Lux). Jump!
You know how they get the Memorial Day weekend started in Chicago at a Sox game? Mother****ing Snoop D-O-G-G throwing out the first pitch. Not some guy who lost a leg and arm in Basra. No, with the Godfather of Pimping®. Not going to lie, the soldiers can wait until Sunday/Monday when Snoop is available to get your Thursday night party started. Anyway, in NBA news, we have no idea who won last night's game. Wrote this up before the end of the game. Let's get rolling!
Tonight's 7th inning at Busch Stadium was quite the party for Naked Streaker Guy who, as you can see, went on an epic NSFW run around a usually docile ballpark when it comes to bare ass. According to @tweetldee, streaker dude made it all the way around the outfield before these huge bros jumped on his bare ass. Look, if you're going streaking, why not blast the balls right in Skip Schumaker's face? More pics - JUMP!
Long story short, some (we'll guess a dude) seller on eBay has listed a scuffed up baseball that might just be a Jesus scuffed baseball. The seller, who has a lousy 83% approval rating, reports: "This is a normal baseball that I believe has the face of Jesus on it. My friend was playing baseball with it and one of the scuffs just happened to make this face. We just thought this was a pretty cool and rare occurrence." Wait, a baseball just gets a Jesus scuff? Do you take cash? JUMP!
Here we go again with a Yankee-Red Sox rivalry arrest story. Of course there have been Yankees-Red Sox beatings that've made headlines over the years. There have been Yankees fans robbing banks. Same from the Red Sox side. But have you ever heard of a Red Sox fan pulling off an armed robbery and the Massachusetts cops arresting a Yankees fan instead? Yeah, it happened this week. JUMP!
The other big news, besides the 76ers getting a victory in Game 6, was that Allen Iverson was in the house to provide moral support to his former team. Of course Philly columnists noted that the guy "looked like a shell of his former self." Seriously, you think? The guy hasn't played in an NBA game since 2010. Think he's a shell? Amazing! In MLB news, would the Steinbrenner boys really sell the Yankees? That's the report. Let's get rolling!
Poor Manny Ramirez. There was the whole steroids suspension, the trouble with his wife & the cops and now comes the gray hair. The guy turns 40 on May 30 and it shows via these photos with Kevin Millar that were shown today on MLB Network's Intentional Talk. Something crazy is going on with that hair because September 13, 2011, when he was arrested, his mugshot looks quite different. 0-to-60 with the gray in 8 months? JUMP!
Game over. Say hello to the best Pete Rose sliding head first into third tattoo we've ever seen. Just happened to be researching a Rose piece and came across this gem that was uploaded to Twitter a couple weeks ago. Of course the ink deserves special attention because we can't find another leg with a Pete Rose belly flop. Still efforting photographer @Beahrs_5 to figure out what guy should be congratulate for this piece of history. JUMP!
As if nobody was going to record Jose Canseco's at-bats during his first home game in Worcester, Mass. for the Tornadoes. Guess what was posted on YouTube this week? A Canseco AB from said home game. The guy has four hits in 20 ABs and a lousy RBI. He's also tied for the team-high in strikeouts (7). Of course the asshole hasn't gotten around to addressing his .200 average on Twitter. Check out this bat speed. JUMP!
Greg Maddux's first MLB salary: $82,500. Last salary:$10mm. Career earnings: just shy of $154mm. However, the guy could literally drive down to the Bellagio and not a soul would realize that was a hall of famer playing at the $25 BJ table. Unassuming bazillionaire. Anyway, Maddux is unloading his Vegas dump with a couple cool pools. Don't say we didn't warn you about this Imperial Palace-like hell hole. JUMP!
Via: A north side PNC Bank branch was robbed late Tuesday morning. The robber entered the bank, 3940 N. Harlem, and demanded money from a teller. He implied he had a weapon but did not display one, and no injuries were reported, police said. Just when we think Phillies Nation is on the right track some bro in Chicago has to ruin the fan reputation. Kinda a ballsy move wearing the Phillies gear in a Chi-town robbery. One of you knows him.
First of all, we now know that it's highly likely that Cleveland Indians' reliever Joe Smith is dating Fox 8 sports reporter & former Miss Teen USA Allie LaForce. How do we know? Because Smith, Ms. LaForce and her family was in a feud at notorious Lake Erie Put-In-Bay island bar, Roundhouse. Smith failed to show bar security his I.D. and was denied entry to the legendary boozery. JUMP!
The story that "blew up" the Internet yesterday had to be the Chuck Knoblauch hitting on NYC G train chicks tale. It was posted on Tumblr by a Brooklyn librarian who claimed a guy named "Chuck" tried to pick up her and a friend with tales of Fenway, baseball and his chef pants. Of course Knobs got on Twitter last night to defend himself. JUMP!
Another night in May, another foul ball off some guy's forehead who bought epic seats to a Mariners game and even brought his glove for last night's tilt against the Rangers. There he was, in perfect position, for a grounder down the first base line that would be the perfect opportunity to add to his douchey baseball collection. Maybe even get this one signed by Justin Smoak. HERE IT COMES! IN THE GLOVE! PERFECT POSITION! JUMP!
Via: According to a police report, Chapman, 24, was caught driving 93 mph on I-71 at the 99.8 mile marker around 12:35 a.m. Monday. The speed limit is 65 mph. Chapman was driving a black 1999 Mercedes S63. During the traffic stop, police found that Chapman had a suspended license through the state of Kentucky. Let's all realize that Grove City is a Columbus suburb. The Reds played in New York on Sunday. Road beef run to Columbus? Odd.
