What the f*ck is going on with the sports world? Are we running out of filler for the 24-hour news cycle? Dropping espionage and _____-gate makes us feel like a Walter Cronkite hologram will show up after a commercial & kick Neil Everett's ass. Jesus! Can't we get a fake Steve Phillips press conference about Albert Pujols being homerless? In NHL news, the Rangers force a Game 7 while Gary Bettman battles the shits over the Blackhawks being eliminated. Let's get rolling!
The Los Angeles Lakers took on the Oklahoma City Thunder today where some 'extracurricular' activity happened during the game. Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, elbowed James Harden in the face in completely violent fashion. Of course, Metta World Peace pretended like nothing happened while Harden layed on the ground in obvious pain. I'm sure David Stern is going to take a look at this play and possible hand out some punishments. JUMP!
Miami Heat president Pat Riley just sold his 80,000 square foot mansion for $16.75 million dollars. Not only does it overlook beautiful Biscayne Bay but it has one of the most unbelievable pools we've ever seen. This two story house is basically perfect for a guy. Not only does it come with a 103 inch plasma television, but it has it's own private beach with sand. JUMP!
And the 99 Problems jerseys just keep rolling in. We asked for submissions a few weeks ago and look what was in the inbox this morning. Indy backwards hat 99 Problems d-bag. Fact: you should never rock this look in an Indianapolis sports bar unless you have a "Ain't 1" bitch rolling with you through Dave & Busters, or wherever Indy watches games. Just sayin'. In MLB news, you MUST look at the NY Post front page. MUST, DAMMIT! Let's get rolling!
The Orlando Magic are a complete mess heading into the playoffs so the logical move from us to ease the pain for fans is to dig into the lovely dance team and pick out a favorite. Asher went digging and came up with former Florida State cheerleader Jessica. She's part Italian/Irish/German, which seems to be the perfect combination to creating the hottest NBA dancers. JUMP!
So we kinda got into it last night with Auburn nation over the Charles Barkley with greasy redneck Auburn bros during rodeo weekend photo. We thought Auburn fans/students were honored to be called greasy rednecks. Maybe coming from a Yankee it was an insult. Just reporting what we see. And the guys with Barkley look like their clothes could use a wash. Anyway, Chuck also took time out of his night for picture time with this lass. JUMP!
This past weekend just happened to be Auburn rodeo weekend, the annual frat party put on by the Alpha Psi brothers. The event is known for (A.) Booze, (B.) Dirty jorts, (C.) Daisy dukes, (D.) Rednecks. Just happened that Charles Barkley was in town and at some bar where some greasy Auburn bros stopped the Round Mound of Rebound for a photo op. Typical celebrities would brush off the dirtbags and tell them to get a shower. Not Barkley. JUMP!
Ahh, that time of year when we unleash Asher on NBA dancer Facebook and Twitter accounts. The guy is under strict orders to start building a database of the hottest cheerleaders who'll be shaking it during the playoffs. Drunk photos will result in a pay raise. Drunk photos with Mark Cuban will result in a $25 bonus. Drunk photos with Shaq & Darius Miles makin' it rain on said cheerleader is worth $100. No drunk photos today. Just Heat dancer Sophie who is from Singapore. JUMP!
And you guys thought we only picked on ESPN interns. Look, you screw up a sports graphic that's running on live TV and BC is coming after you, especially when it's as easy as spelling C-E-L-T-I-C-S. Here we have Sager doing his thing with Doc Rivers during tonight's Cel-tics-Knicks game. Kinda disappointed in Sager's coat choice. Too reserved. Knicks led 43-28 at last glance. Hope the TNT intern enjoys his/her last night on the job. (HT: @jose3030)
Yeah, we're fully aware that the other Internet outlets that cover athlete pads had this one last week. However, not a single site (Business Insider, Chicago Tribune, Curbed, etc.) called out Kyle Korver for what has to be the worst game room in athlete house history. Korver is about to sell this 16-room, suburban Chicago mansion for $1.475 million. He paid $1.38. Yep, housing is coming back! Blah, blah, blah. Now, let's rip on Korver's game room. JUMP!
Herewego! You know what basketball league we watch when the NBA gets too boring with yet another night of 58 pick and roll plays? Um, the Barbados Basketball League. You might remember in 2011 when one game turned into a brawl when a player landed a running drop kick on a point guard. If that wasn't cool enough, things got nuts Saturday night when things got crazy again. Fists, feet, and even a dude swinging a chair! It's all here! JUMP!
This graphics fail could have been a career ender for the intern working a SportsCenter Saturday shift. Look down at your keyboard and realize where the 'u' and the 'i' are located. Would've been the ESPN Intern Fail To End All Fails. Anyway, if you have time, tune in for some Rockets vs. Nuggers later this evening. In MLB news, could this be the end of Giants' closer Brian Wilson as we knew him? "Structural issues" in his pitching elbow. Let's get rolling!
First of all, damn that's an ugly baby. Let's not kid ourselves here. Not all babies are little balls of cuteness. Go to a Walmart in Knoxville, Tennessee. Near the airport. Guarantee you'll see ugly babies in that joint. Just little freak shows puking and shitting on themselves. We were there for Georgia-Tennessee in the fall and couldn't believe the little bastards these people create. Mutants. Anyway, here is Pacers mom diggin' it out last night. JUMP!
Maybe you heard the news about the Cleveland Cavaliers mascot, Moondog, suffering an eye injury last night while horsing around with the Indiana Pacers David West. This was just the kind of news that jostled our brain and reminded us that the team used to have the horniest mascot in the NBA. A quick check of Moondog's Flickr page showed us that nothing has changed. The (we're 99.9% certain it's a guy) mascot is still grinding on the ladies. JUMP!
Yes, the dickhead producers at ESPN's First Take are suckering me in on this one. The Internet was buzzing yesterday over news that Skip Bayless might have embellished his high school basketball prowess. He claimed to be stud basketball player, yet averaged 1.4 ppg his senior year. Blah, blah, blah. So, guess who First Take had handy this morning to 'debate' Skip? A guard! Jalen Rose! And of course he brought up the Bayless lies. JUMP!
The Kentucky Wildcats won their 8th NCAA Basketball title a couple weeks, and I figured there was no better way to celebrate that...
