Someone please make it end. This tournament week just can't end fast enough for the ESPN Intern Department. We were asked on Twitter why we keep saying ESPN is firing interns over these f-ups. Well, because these errors couldn't possibly be made by competent employees. There are still plenty of games to go. Have your eyes open and when you send us ESPN fails, make sure to use the 'large' function on your iPhone: firstname.lastname@example.org
Would Jeremy Lin, compared by many as the Tim Tebow of the NBA for his Christian beliefs and ability to bring Skip Bayless to his knees, be in a nightclub with his Knicks teammates? Here's what we know about this photo that is starting to make its rounds on the Internet: that's Landry Fields (upper right) and Jared Jeffries in the Marines shirt. As for the two guys hanging with the white chicks? JUMP!
King's College, situated in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., has a women's Division III Sweet 16 game at 5 p.m. in Amherst, Mass. Meanwhile, in Cancun, one of the school's all-time leading scorers will be enjoying sun & whatever else kids do on spring break. Paige Carlin might have drained 1,000 career points at King's, but she chose to leave the team after Saturday's game and hit the Gulf of Mexico beaches. Sweet 16 with teammates vs. spring break? Who you got? JUMP!
The one area where Michael Jordan has been solid in his GM duties for the Charlotte Bobcats has been in the dancer department. What, he's not in charge of hiring dancers? Um, he should be claiming responsibility because the basketball team he puts on the court is horrid - 5-32. The only good news at a Bobcats game? You get to see Lindsay shake it during timeouts. Otherwise, this basketball outpost is a giant waste of time. JUMP!
At this point next week ESPN will need like 40-50 interns to replace all those fired this week over lazy errors during conference tourney action. Sure, the WWL has hundreds of thousands of minutes of coverage in a year, which will result in logo errors. You see, SDSU has a jackrabbit logo. Like these. Anyway, in MLB news, you have to see the fortune Indians manager Manny Acta got at P.F. Chang's. Let's get rolling!
BC can preach to ESPN staffers until we're red in the face about getting some rest before conference tourney Thursday. 49 f-ing games today. Of course ESPN was going to f-up along the way, but this garbage is just so blatant there should be an intern packing his backpack over this one. Lucky for us, BC reader Travis was watching and reported: ESPN needs to fire their intern. SMH. Shaking our heads indeed, Travis. NOT EVEN THE RIGHT CONFERENCE! SHAPE UP!
USA! USA! USA! If you really want to stick it to someone who's Hispanic or, we presume, some other nationality, you should just break out the USA chant. Why? Well, all the kids are doing it. It's hip. It's cool. It's the thing to do! Actually, we're just kidding. It's probably not the thing to do. In fact, it's probably totally idiotic. Some kids in San Antonio did it anyway after their predominantly-white high school beat a predominantly-Hispanic high school in hoops. Now they're in real trouble.
Nope, Mo Williams doesn't play for the Cleveland Cavaliers these days. He's actually a Clippers scrub. However, that isn't stopping Cavs.com from congratulating him - today - on his NBA All-Star game appearance - in 2009! Guess there is a glitch in the system because this splash page was live at 9:47 when the guys at Waiting For Next Year brought it our attention. By 10:17 the crack web crew had fixed things. Good work, boys.
Not sure what grocery store has advanced to this stage of ripping off kids, but AP photographer @evanvucci shows us that stupid plastic balls are officially history. In Linsanity news, the star is fading fast. Sure, he had 20 last night, but Tony Parker had 32 and the Spurs shot 54% from the field in a 118-105 win. The Knicks free fall continues as they are now 18-21. Meanwhile, the NY Post has turned to 'Texas Toast' headlines. Let's get rolling!
Yesterday we met the mini cheerleading dynamo that is South Carolina's Taryn. After a little more digging, BC Spirit Editor Asher is back with another round of this 5-footer with insane abs and even more bikini photos. Yes, we're trying to keep you SEC guys entertained. We know that boring SEC basketball tournament is of little interest. That said, here's one more shot of Taryn to enjoy this afternoon while listening to Finebaum. JUMP!
Anyone know if this is an actual cellphone? If so, we're buying one. Let us know where we can get one: email@example.com In other basketball news, how is the Jeremy Lin Experience going? He was 4-of-13 last night in Dallas. The Knicks lost 95-85 and their record fell to 18-20. Yes, that puts them in the 8th playoff position. How bad are things for Linsanity? The NY tabloids say Linsanity is over. Let's get rolling!
Seriously, we understand you guys aren't getting much sleep this week. We understand Gottieb is P90Xing between Big East games. It's only Tuesday and one of your jerkoff interns goes and pulls this logo switcheroo. Get it together, team WWL. Need to crack the whip and realize that this is one giant f-ing mess before going live with it on SportsCenter. Who's producing this show? Doesn't this raise red flags. Have an ESPN fail we need to see? firstname.lastname@example.org
Of course BC knows you SEC freaks - besides Kentucky fan - is at home twiddling your thumbs not sure what to do in March before the big spring game. That means we need to entertain the rest of you until football returns in April. So we've told BC Spirit Editor Asher to get his ass in gear and find us the hottest of the hottest SEC cheerleaders. He visited Columbia, South Carolina and discovered Taryn, a tiny 5-foot firecracker. JUMP!
The price of gold on September 8, 2008 was $808 an ounce. Yesterday gold was $1,705 an ounce. A Chipotle burrito was $6.25. That same burrito today is $6.50. Costs are up everywhere. So why hasn't the cost of renting the UCLA cheerleaders gone up with the times. Way back in 2008 we discovered that it was possible to rent a UCLA cheerleader. The price was $100. Yep, it's the same price today. Still one of the greatest deals in sports. JUMP!
Kudos go out to @Saksadelic for watching closely during last night's 76ers-Bucks baby crawl competition. Gotta love Milwaukee moms going commando. We do. In case you were wondering, Bucks won 97-93. As for March Madness, teams last night punching tickets include: VCU, Saint Mary's, Davidson & Loyola (MD). Basketball junkies will be happy to know that the Big East tourney kicks off today at Noon. 9 televised games today. Let's get rolling!
So what if they can't spell at the University of North Carolina? They're ACC champs, dammit! Here's a lesson in taunting, courtesy of the North Carolina and Duke student governments. Rule No. 1 when chiding an opponent via Twitter is to know how to spell. Unfortunately, some people who go to UNC failed to observe this rule. Someone from Duke was, of course, happy to help them understand. Here's the rundown. JUMP!
