Remember that insane twitpic sent out back in June? The one that had Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice in a tiny white bikini. Well that same Stephanie Rice is now being linked to Kobe Bryant and the two just may be dating! According to a photo Rice tweeted in late July, the two met then and have been in contact since then. Fast-forward a few weeks and the two have been spotted multiple times since the games began in London. JUMP!
Nope, count me out when it comes time to get stretched out by this Argentinian trainer. You straddle me in front of the world and that's the final straw. Done. Would quit the team on the spot. Here is your TV schedule for Day 11 of the Olympics. It's the final night of gymnastics so make some extra popcorn. Don't miss the women's javelin this morning. It's going on right now - results. It'll be your only chance to watch Leryn Franco throw. Let's get rolling!
And here you thought hoochies wouldn't care about Greg Oden now that his NBA career is finished. Ahh, but the 7-footer made over $23,000,000 in his career and, from all indications, has plenty of spare bills to throw around. Sure, his agent got a cut. The government got its share. I'm sure there were a couple bad house deals in Portland. Maybe a sports car or two that were spur-of-the-moment mistakes. Hoochies, however, can sniff those bills. JUMP!
Tom Crean made sure to clear the air about this tweet by saying that he's been thinking about a recruit. This isn't - you know - a tweet to some road beef. "Sorry. That was to a new recruit. Wish I could tell you who. Sent it by mistake. Don't panic. Lol(.)" The IU coach added, "My wife and daughter are laughing at my lack of ability to use technology." Nice excuse, Crean. Does the recruit have long legs, a full C-cup and blonde hair? (@TomCrean)
There has been quite the controversy surrounding Team USA and their uniforms. Ralph Lauren and his team designed these threads and...how do we put it? They are pretty much the douchiest outfits we've ever seen. Every American athlete will have to rock these uniforms, berets and all, during Friday's opening ceremonies. It's great seeing photos popping up of athletes trying on the outfits, best one yet has been Anthony Davis. Unibrow is rocking the beret with pride! JUMP!
Team USA has been handling their business in tune-up games leading up to the Olympics. With the exception, of the Argentina game, each victory has been a cakewalk. However the team looks like it is trying to catch as much rest as possible, especially on the plane. Kevin Love snapped an epic Instagram pic of six of his teammates and head coach Mike Krzyzewski passed out en route to London. Impressive ability to catch all seven guys out cold. JUMP!
Gilbert, Gilbert, Gilbert. Where to begin. Back in '08 he was wrapping up the prime of his career. Arenas got on his high horse, started dropping millions into this place and before he knew it, it was 2012 and he was struggling to find an NBA team. That's about the time these morons realize that million dollar pool might not have been the best "investment". At only $3.5 million this beauty could be yours! JUMP!
Never would've guessed Karl Malone would sell his ass kickin' Toyota Tundra so that he could get better gas mileage with a Scion iQ. Wait, this tiny car gets great gas mileage, right? Try 36/city & 37 on the highway. And 6-9 power forwards don't exactly fit very well, according to this test at his Scion dealership. Get this, the specs on this ride claims you can get four people in the iQ. Seriously, says so right here. JUMP!
Just think how many hours it took some guy (because this is something that guys waste time working on) to create this LeBron James Gmail account screencap. HOURS! Sure, once you have the Gmail fonts it comes down to creativity. And this creative guy even created a great Google email ad for LeBron's account. Our favorite email on this screencap: that message from Pau Gasol. Full image - JUMP!
This guy is Tom Izzo and he coaches the Michigan State basketball team. Can you imagine him listening to the late Notorious B.I.G. (who is arguably one of the best rappers ever)? It's possible this was unintentional or just an amazing coincidence but it happened. Izzo was giving an interview and his quote was almost exactly the same as Biggie's line. Analysis after the JUMP!
If you are in the market for a massive luxury van then today is your lucky day. Current owners "John & Rosemary" have had enough of this vehicle and are trying to unload it to a lucky buyer. Yes, this tricked out van was formerly owned by Shaq himself...as if the masive Superman logo on the grill wasn't enough of a hint. Shaq was ahead of the curve when he decided to sell this beast. JUMP!
We love athlete houses with killer pools. Love 'em. Would buy one if this blog ever gets snapped up by a giant media company. Sure, Coed Media Group is cool and all, but our asses aren't going to be sitting next to one of these pools until Coed is snapped up. When that day comes, my ass is relocating to Southlake, TX where BC HQ will be at LaMarcus Aldridge's pad. Look at that pool. LOOK AT IT! So pretty.
Anderson Varejao is a complete d-bag. Always has been, always will be. Take last night, for example. The guy walks into a Brazil-USA friendly and acts like a complete jagoff, fouling guys like it's Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Of course Americans on Twitter were pissed off with a guy slamming bodies and acting like he's about to put a gold medal around his neck. Complete dick moves, Varejao. JUMP!
The big news from tonight's Team USA vs. Brazil game in D.C.? Obama wouldn't kiss Michelle when the two ended up on the Verizon Center Kiss Cam. Seriously, fans booed, according to Huffington Post. Of course snubbing the Kiss Cam deserves a good boo. It's a non-partisan issue. Anyway, there was basketball and LeBron showed off against some Brazilian scrubs. JUMP!
It's been a wild couple days for New York Knick fans. Between the Jeremy Lin offer sheet fiasco and the Jason Kidd DUI, tabloids have material for days. The Knicks have a pretty decent (and old) roster on paper, but there are good portions of their fan base who are at wits end. They are dreading seeing Carmelo Anthony shoot 30 times a game. They are pissed to see Jeremy Lin skipping town for Houston. They hate the teams owner James Dolan. JUMP!
Remember, kids, you don't want to forget to fill your ESPN cutlines before going live with graphics because there is a guy out there waiting to bust your ass for the error. Next thing you know it's on Twitter & dorky Internet guys are LOLing at you. In other sports news, the halo on a Joe Paterno mural in State College has been modified. The halo has been painted over! Meanwhile, there seems to be an Ozzie-Bryce Harper pine tar feud. Let's get rolling!
