Michael Wilbon is now 52-years-old which means he's moved into the stage of his life where he needs rest. Think of your father. Maybe early to mid-50s was the point in his life when he could fall asleep on the toilet, right? The PTI star just happened to make Sat. special for his son. It was the boy's very first Cubs game. The proud father, as you can see, ended up napping and confirming via Twitter that he didn't stay until the final out. Wilbon & Lilbon's big day at Wrigley - JUMP!
BC Special Features Editor Monty sent this dispatch earlier today about the Cubs new "F@%k The Goat" shirts. "The Chicago Cubs are the brown stain on my toilet bowl when I'm done taking a crap... wait, no, it's not the team that is the stain, it's their fans. Outside of Boston, there aren't a bunch of insufferable, disgusting, classless pricks who stand up taller game after game than Chicago Cubs fans." And he's just getting started. JUMP!
Nerdy metrosexual Matt Sebek from JoeSportsFan.com was doing his screencapping thing last night when he hit pause for this scene from the Astros-Cardinals game. Obviously the guy's shades and wristwatch caught Matt's attention. You can probably guess what stopped us in our tracks. Morning Twitpic is back and we're bringing the heavy hitters out to regain your love and appreciation for Busted Coverage. Wider view of those Arizona State-sorority-like pieces of art - JUMP!
Meagan Broussard, the 26-year-old Texan who was the recipient of Rep. Anthony Weiner's (D - NY) sexts, has a baseball connection. Her brother, Ben Broussard, played seven seasons in the bigs with the Cleveland Indians, Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers. If you've never heard of him, you're probably not alone. Now the weiner-pic receiving sister is officially more famous than her brother ever was. Her story and more photos, JUMP!
Normally a story about former Rays #1 draft pick Dewon Brazelton being arrested for busting up his fiancee and going to jail on domestic violence charges wouldn't be worthy enough of Cuff 'Em. But, it just happens to be MLB Draft Week. This should serve as a lesson to all you draftees who think you'll be rich, nice to your baby mamma and an upstanding citizen. Details of Dewon's punchiness - JUMP!
Later today a bunch of college and high school baseball players will hear their names called during the 2011 MLB Draft. Thanks to generous rules and smart agents, those drafted by 4 p.m. this afternoon will be able to throw down multiple millions on their dream pad. Here is our look at houses that former #1 picks and fellow draftees purchased after hitting the MLB lottery. Prepare yourself to cry and ask God why he didn't make you a baseball player - JUMP!
We all know Torii Hunter is a great outfielder. Dude won 9 consecutive Gold Gloves until being robbed last year, the first year he had not won the award since 2000. That should tell you that the guy will do whatever it takes to catch a baseball. If that includes skying into the stands and plowing a Yankees fan, then Hunter is game. So, guess what happened yesterday when Robinson Cano drilled a shot into right field? Video - JUMP!
BC tipster Ryan in Escondido wrote to us last night re: chicks throwing first pitches at baseball games and said we needed to check out Lindsey Vonn doing her thing at Tuesday's Dodgers game. "I don't know what it is about this chick, but I find her hotter than Doutzen Kroes," Ryan wrote in reference to Tuesday's item on the Victoria's Secret model doing first pitch duties for the Blue Jays. You be the judge. Vonn first pitch - JUMP!
Braves pitcher Peter Moylan has some downtime right now since he's on the 60-day DL after having back surgery May 22. That means he'll be able to take advantage of an ESPYs invite, which means Pete and his fiance Mandy need to find something to wear. Moylan tweeted last night after trying on Mandy's dress: "FYI it took me 1 min to get into that dress and 45 mins to get out!!!! What I will do to get you guy laughing..." Full shot of Pete and his cute fiance - JUMP!
There are sexy first pitch chicks that can move the needle within the blogosphere (think Marisa Miller 2008) because it's more common to have some vice president of sales at Dick's Last Resort lobbing a ball over a Victoria's Secret lingerie model. So that means last night in Toronto was a special occasion because Dutch model Doutzen Kroes, 4.5 months after giving birth, took the mound for duties. As you'll see, she was showing some stomach and perfect form. Photos! JUMP!
Should we be surprised that the team owner of the minor league Roswell Invaders of the Pecos League, during an umpire/coach shoving match, ran onto the field Saturday with a metal folding chair? Nope. As mentioned like 15 times between April 1 and today, some of the craziest moments in baseball history have occurred this year, hence our "Season of Weird" tag for the craziness. Watch Andrew Dunn make his Internet viral debut - VIDEO - JUMP!
There is an Associated Press story out this week saying how fans are now getting drunker, stupider (is that a word?) and acting more idiotic than ever. And they pay someone to do this research. We've been MLB '11 "The Season of Weird" since early April when crazy idiots were popping up on a nightly basis. Where you been, AP? You slackers are late to this kegger. Just this week we've had Indians chicks shotgunning beers behind home plate and now we have Phillies fans going Cinemax behind Jay Bruce. Someone name boob grab chick and fire away with a Facebook account! JUMP!
You want to see what happens when a Major League Baseball game goes 6 hours and 11 minutes? Last night's Reds-Phillies game didn't end until 1:19 this morning with the Fightins winning 5-4 in 19 innings. It was the 6th longest game in Phils history and longest (in terms of hours) in Reds' history. Even more impressive was 2B Wilson Valdez joining Babe Ruth as the only player in MLB history to start a game in the field and become the winning pitcher. But what really shocked us were the amount of Phillies fans that legged out the marathon. Do you people have jobs? Photos! JUMP!
Finally! We'd been hearing about this Kirk Gibson taking a digger video from Friday night for a few days, but it had yet to be uploaded until last night. Our tipsters kept telling us that we needed to see Gibby going face first into the dirt at Chase Field. Well, we've now seen it and can confirm that this is right up there with Pedro Martinez launching Don Zimmer in the "MLB Managers Going Digger" category. Impressive feet, Gibson.
The BC tip hotline lit up this afternoon with a call from area code 216, which happens to be Cleveland. The tipster, who wishes to remain unnamed, wanted to fill in the blanks on our story this morning of the chicks putting on a beer shotgun show during the 9th inning of last night's Red Sox-Indians game. The full reasoning behind the shotgunning, according to the tipster, after the jump.
There are rain delay antics and then there are the videos turned in this week from the Davidson vs. Clemson rain delay that pretty much put all competitors to shame. When's the last time you saw human bowling or cage fighting/wrestling rings made out of Clemson baseball players. Or, our personal favorite, Clemson players doing a skit where they recreate a scene with a player dropping a deuce. This is baseball rain delays at their best. Multiple videos! JUMP!
