The Philly Inquirer reported yesterday: The FBI is searching for a bank robber who wore a Phillies cap as he held up the Society Hill branch of Wells Fargo this morning. The suspect is described as 5-foot-4, with a thin to medium build, and clean shaved. He wore a black jacket and a red Phillies ball cap. Gee, this should be an easy case to crack. Let's see, Phillies fan, 5-4, looks kinda white to maybe Latino. Yep, we expect this one to be solved in days.
Mark Teixeira has either made or is still owed a total of $100,000,000 in his MLB career. He'll make $22.5MM each year for the next five years. So imagine our shock this morning when Mark hit enter on this tweet: "I've never gone shopping on Black Friday and this incident reminds me why..." Tex was referencing today's news that some lady unloaded pepper spray on fellow Black Friday shoppers. That's why? We figured it was that Dolce & Gabbana wasn't running sales?
Erin Hawksworth, a sports reporter for the Fox affiliate in Seattle, just happens to follow Uncle Busted Coverage on Twitter so we tried to ask her yesterday what her favorite Thanksgiving food dish was for our 36 Hot Chicks & Their Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes feature. Erin finally answered, "Turkey, Turkey, Turkey! Can't have turkey without stuffing though." She was ill yesterday, hence the late response. We then started talking about a Boston Red Sox job. JUMP!
ARod is at it again this week at his Miami mansion where we now have meathead chicks doing handstands and cartwheels for Centaur. Paparazzi photographers hit the motherlode yesterday when ARod's dream came true. A couple ladies were just running around like maniacs and the Yankees slugger couldn't take his eyes off the ripped thighs. PHOTOS! JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Former pitcher Kris Benson's hot, dumb stripper wife Anna Benson is back and she's not only looking great, but she's dropping her usual bits of insightful knowledge. Oh, and she's starring in this show called Baseball Wives too, but that's not what's important right now. Anna tells us why Kris got traded by the Mets (her funbags!), how classy she is and her new method of punishing Kris if he cheats. Hey, we've got some fine-ass pics of too! Check it!
This is just the kind of news that'll send the Internet into a feeding frenzy for 2-3 days. We now know that Phillies dork Hunter Pence is dating Playboy Miss May 2007 Shannon James, a Philadelphian. This isn't one of those cases where we're guessing they're dating. James and Pence are dating to the point that they left this morning for a Cabo vacation. Update your WAG lists. Update your Hottest Phillies Wives & Girlfriends lists. Pence hit the hot chick jackpot. JUMP!
Just when you thought ARod really was just getting exercise advice from stripper pole expert Ella Magers, now comes word that the Cameron Diaz ripoff was on Centaur's Miami palace terrace in her bikini. Cameras, yesterday, caught Magers just destroying the Miami sun with grotesque abs and those funky hip muscle lines. A month ago everyone was saying Ella was just 'working out' ARod. This kinda confirms there is more to the relationship. JUMP!
BC Assignment Editor Monty reports: Marty Cordova was a baseball player who probably spent more time on the disabled list than he did on the field, but that doesn't mean he didn't do well for himself. Just take a look at his Henderson, Nevada castle. It can be all yours for a mere $3.25 million and by the look of things, it's probably worth every penny. Either Marty has mob ties or he just got paid a lot for hitting .274. Check it out!
Cardinals World Series hero David Freese could have a wardrobe malfunction tonight at the Country Music Awards. Freese tweets, Bag didn't make my connector to Nashville. I wonder if I can get by presenting with @ErinAndrews in Nike sweatpants and a hoodie?!?!
#cmas. Can't say we'll be spending out Wed. night waiting for these two to hit the stage so someone please send us an email if Freese ends up in the sweatpants. email@example.com
Can we really feel bad for Mike Hampton and his real estate issues in Phoenix? You think Mike felt bad making $124,000,000 over his 16-year baseball career which accounted for one 20-win season and two all-star appearances? Look, Mike's about to lose at least $2,000,000 on this pad and how much more in decorations wasted. Could you rich bastards just settle for the $500k 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath spread? No? Then you deserve to crash and burn. JUMP!
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. A group of MLB players touring Taiwan to play the national time did as the locals do earlier this week, stopping in Snake Alley to drink some shots of snake blood. The players watched the snakes get sacrificed and then threw back shots... some more than others. Whether the blood gave them special powers is debatable, but they dominated in their first game of the series.
You might remember the photo of Katie Siepman from World Series Game 6. She's holding the sign saying "He told me I could have an engagement ring or World Series tickets - Here I am." Yeah, well, that was false. Not true at all, according to an interview with Katie via SI's Andy Gray. True, there is a jacked up personal trainer boyfriend. Been on the fence on how to handle this story. Support the dude or call him a tool for not dropping to a knee? JUMP!
Baseball finally got something right with a World Series Game 7 on a Friday night. In two years you'll be scratching your head trying to figure out who won the 2011 WS. As for the Rangers, God just doesn't think now is the time. As for that gambler who had the Cardinals winning it all at 999/1 at MGM, yeah, he's still hammered off his ass this morning. That $250 bet paid him $250,000. Gonna be a light day. We're in Chicago.
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is supporting friend and St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa in one of the strangest ways we can fathom -- by wearing his jersey. It's kind of creepy if you ask us, but hey, we don't want to criticize the fashion plate that is Bill Belichick. Or do we? Here's the story of how this diabolical merger of Belichick and La Russa happened. Check it!
What balls on this Big Junk Jeremy Reiland guy, the Cubs fan who infiltrated the Cards locker room with his bro last night. In other news, UGA fan emailed us re: Aaron Murray Photo: Please give me your name and address so I can come and knock on you door and talk to you for a quick second before you start talking more nonsense about Aaron Murray tough guy, don't hide behind your words. Go Florida! Let's get rolling.
The story of porn star Bibi Jones & Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski in a pic took another strange twist overnight. It was just 24 hours ago that we traded emails with Business Insider reporter Tony Manfred over what agent was kinda pimping out Bibi Jones to recruit MLB clients. We threw out the name Terry Bross, who just happened to be Dan Uggla's agent. Jones says she had sex with Uggla. Well, we now know Bross was the guy using porn arm candy. JUMP!
