Logically, Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol celebrated the fact he didn't get dealt before the NBA trade deadline by singing. Okay, maybe it's not totally logical. Gasol did, however, attend a fundraiser last night where he was more than happy to jump on stage and show off his vocal stylings. He needs to stick to playing basketball because he sounded terrible. That's not to mention his song selection left a little to be desired. Here's the video.
Normally we wouldn't kill a CBS intern over missing the 'i' in a case like this. However, this graphic was cued up and waiting to drop at the end of last night's games. Someone better get their intern resume together. BC tried to warn CBS not to get all LOL at ESPN fails. Kudos to Kige Ramsey (YouTube Sports) for the grab. So your upsets are Wichita St. & UNLV going down (full scoreboard). And how about the Big East. West Virginia plays like garbage & UConn loses. Let's get rolling!
Have the games been kinda boring this afternoon? Not if you're a racists at the Kansas State vs. Southern Miss game, according to our friends at Buzzfeed. According to the audiologists, that is the Southern Miss band chanting 'Where's your green card?' to freshman guard Angel Rodriguez during the Wildcats 70-64 victory. Would you expect anything less Mississippi rednecks? JUMP!
Make sure you get a good look at this ESPN YouTube video cutline that was online last night for at least 40 minutes, according to @SportsTalkPhila. As ESPN editors write about La Salle's Ramon Galloway's father: "His father in the crowd, doesn't seem to be paying attention." Well, pops has a good reason. HE'S BLIND! Was shot in his early 20s. Of course the ESPN error has been changed, but not before screencaps went out. So, so good! Let's get rolling!
Anyone know who FUK LBJ shirt bro is? So we want to congratulate him on that red watch that's about as gay as Lebron's purse. We're calling it a night. Gotta get rest for 12 hours of March Madness. Send intel to the email account: email@example.com
Of course Thursday is a holiday for 85% of American men who could care less about college basketball for 10.5 months out of a year. Of course you wouldn't sit at a bar and watch Syracuse vs. UNC-Asheville in December. Of course Ohio State vs. Loyola-Md. looks like a blowout on paper. But we're all watching. Intently. Is there anything better than gambling, college basketball and cheerleaders on a Thursday afternoon? No, there isn't. JUMP!
Not a good night for Mississippi Valley State and Iona. So I went to bed with the Gaels up 15 at half after running BYU's asses into the ground over 20 minutes. Figured this one was over. No need to stay up. Guess who scored 17 2nd half points and lost by 6? I-f*cking-ONA. In NFL news, everyone is gagging over the news that Brandon Marshall is headed to Chicago to reunite with Cuntler. Remember, championships aren't won in March. Let's get rolling!
This Chicago Bulls fan loves New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. So what does he do? He spits in his hand (and tells us about it repeatedly) and then high fives Lin and his teammates as they run onto the court. It started what was an all-around crappy night for Lin, whose team lost to the Bulls in Chicago. We kind of wish someone would have punched this kid in the face, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. Here's the video.JUMP!
Via USA Today: Syracuse sophomore Fab Melo will not play in the NCAA tournament due to an eligibility issue, the school announced Tuesday afternoon. Melo did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh. In other words, homeboy isn't using the tutors provided to him very well. What we do know is that Melo still found the time to tweet throughout the day. We were shocked to read that he's not exactly a Twitter moron hoodrat. (@Melo_elo51)
So Maria Menounos was at Sunday's Celtics-Lakers game and we really don't have any sort of story to tell you here. Yes, Maria is still all together at 33-years-old. The arms aren't getting droopy. The face isn't starting to fall apart. But, this is how bad things are for the Celtics organization. Not only is the basketball team ancient, so is the superfan. Not that we'd kick Maria out of bed. However, when your superfan is 33, the program is in trouble. JUMP!
Via: After two sixth grade teams played at the Holy Name School in Springfield, Mass., for the boy's championship basketball game, police received a report of a disturbance. Police said the assistant coach of the losing team, Timothy Lee Forbes, 34, of Springfield assaulted the coach of the winning team after the game and bit off part of his ear. The victim was rushed to the Baystate Medical Center emergency room in an ambulance to reattach the ear. #SMH
Oklahoma City's own Kevin Durant is giving Seattle the old heave ho. At least, he's giving his old Seattle pad he heave-ho. So, his franchise got up and moved from one of the coolest cities in the west to one of the, uh.... Waffle House-havingest cities in the west. Durant held onto his Seattle pad even after his franchise bolted, but hell, it's time to unload. KD's old pad, which we're pretty sure Bigfoot p*ssed on, is on the market for $2.8 million. Here's a look.
Welcome to our old friend, the 'Ladies of March Madness' series that always makes its appearance during this time of year when basketball is king for four weeks. The goal of the series remains simple: find hot cheerleaders from schools in the NCAA Tournament. While the office dork next to you is worried about who he should take in the Alabama vs. Creighton game, you're familiarizing yourself with ladies Verne Lundquist will be lusting after. Today we meet Caitlin - JUMP!
Of course you guys are going to drill us for another 'guess who ______ is dating' story, but this one really has value to your March Madness brackets. Syracuse senior guard Scoop Jardine enters the NCAA Tournament as the boyfriend of Michael Jordan's daughter, Jasmine. Why is that a big deal? Um, you think MJ wants Scoop coming around his house - with his daughter - is the 'Cuse get knocked out by Vandy? Nope. JUMP!
BC reader Michael Y sent this to us last night: Not quite a ESPN error, but a CBS one on the widely viewed selection sunday show. Apparently the 8th Seeded Wildcats in the East Region are 32-2. Good work, Michael. For those of you always bitching that we pick on ESPN, suck it. We'll gladly pick on CBS interns, too. Just so we're all clear, K-State finished the year 21-10 and do have a quality win over Missouri. Plan your bracket accordingly.
You can now go about life for about 10.5 months without hearing Joe Lunardi tell you his 'Last Four In' during your dreams. However, you'll be stuck with Seth Davis rambling nonsense until about 12:35 a.m. EST for the next three weekends. If there's nothing more American than apple pie, there's nothing more American in March than somebody being p*ssed off at a basketball analyst during March Madness. Last night the venom spewed. JUMP!
