The story of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old black Florida boy killed by a 28-year-old Hispanic, has brought race in America into focus once again. Martin's killer hasn't been prosecuted because he claims he shot the boy in self defense. The story has made people take notice, among those, the Miami Heat, who today showed support for Martin, and Geraldo, who pretty much just said something stupid.
Here's the thing when BC tries to find hot Xavier cheerleaders to get you guys excited for tonight's Sweet 16 game against Baylor - it's nearly impossible. Again, this is Xavier, a private school where chicks don't usually end up for cheerleading. Asher did his best and came up with Ashlee. She seems to be cool enough. Rockin' body, party attitude and hoping for some face time on CBS this evening. JUMP!
Lesley Visser's face was all the rage last night because people sure as hell didn't see in during the first weekend of March Madness, right? Folks, her face has been like this since football season. Where have you been? So leave it to Spokane CBS affiliate sports director Tim Lewis to lead the dickish charge last night towards a CBS sideline reporter. If this came from an ABC or NBC sports director it would make sense. But, CBS? Shame on you, Lewis. JUMP!
Yes, ESPN fired a mobile app editor last night. No biggie. Just another day, another job opening. (via @Sniff009) As for the other games, we'd like to give a special shout out to Bo Ryan and his Wisconsin Badgers for running out the clock on their season and then going for a high-percentage shot from beyond NBA range. No reason to drive and dish. No reason trying to draw a foul on a drive. In NHL news, have you found Paul Bissonette's underwear? Let's get rolling!
Did you guys remember the Sweet 16 gets started in a couple hours? Yeah, nearly forgot, too. The night gets rolling with Wisconsin-Syracuse and Louisville-Michigan State, followed by Cincinnati-Ohio State and Florida-Marquette late. Ohio State seems to have the edge on the inside against the Bearcats, but we'll guarantee you won't see a cheerleader like Ashley on the Bucks sideline. This war goes to UC. JUMP!
And the @AdarnSchefter account strikes again. It's all so damn confusing! Fake accounts! Tebow to Jags! Tebow to Jets! How a fake account with only 85 followers can troll so damn hard is amazing. Remember, all it takes are a few RT's and the run is on. You've been warned. Adarn is on the loose. How about this synergy between SportsCenter and its stud NFL reporter. Solid. In NBA news, how about the return of Linsanity. Knicks win again! Let's get rolling!
You see that giant bald-headed goon under the basket. Pay attention to that goon. His name is Mick Pennisi and he plays in the Filipino Basketball League. Seriously, he looks like some goon you'd find pounding drafts at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas. Or the Excalibur. The purpose of giving Mick run on BC today is this flop video featuring Mick. Think soccer players are horrible? You haven't seen sh*t yet, son. JUMP!
Of course the IU students are fired up over their Sweet 16 showdown with the hated Kentucky basketball program (via @skeetntweet630). Is a 'Kony Supports UK' banner a little over the top? Not a bit. Round one of the UK-IU fan banner war easily goes to Bloomington. Where you at, Lexington? Send pics: firstname.lastname@example.org - In NBA news, how about this Jeremy Lin kid. Out of nowhere he goes for 18 & 10 on the Raptors. Gotta get his jersey. Let's get rolling!
Allen Iverson's soon-to-be ex-wife is not playing nice and boy, are we surprised. Tawanna Iverson has requested a list of every woman Allen has slept with since they've been married. Oh, and she wants their phone numbers too, presumably so she can track them down and get in some cat fights. We're here to explore the situation as well as give you the dirt on the Iverson's divorce proceedings. JUMP!
Former Boston Celtics & Miami Heat multi-millionaire Antoine Walker has fallen pretty far since his (kind of) glorious NBA days. Walker is having a little financial difficulty. He filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and was just forced to sell his 2006 NBA Championship ring. It fetched a nice price, but isn't going to come anywhere near paying off Walker's debt. Oh, and did we mention Antoine is playing in the D-League? Gotta make a paycheck somehow, we guess. JUMP!
We're headed to the Pacific Northwest to check in on the Portland Trail Blazers' Dancers. Specifically Amanda, a gorgeous blonde with a big smile! An outdoorsy kinda girl that loves to fish, bike and hike, Amanda also knows a thing or two about wearing tight ass dresses that show off all of her best parts. She's also persistent. It took this firecracker five attempts before she made the Trailblazers dance team. JUMP!
Via: A Sand Springs basketball coach was arrested Saturday morning on a felony rape complaint after meeting a 17-year-old student at a hotel for sex, according to her arrest report. Erin Kathleen Queen, 27, was arrested at 5:30 a.m. Saturday on a complaint of first-degree rape after telling police she had sexual intercourse with her 17-year-old student at the Candlewood Suites at 10008 E. 73rd St., according to the report. Here's her cached Twitter account. Note: she's married!
How about Kyle & those Kansas Jayhawks? Massive amounts of wild hotel sex last night in Omaha. Kyle just getting drunk at the hotel bar & picking up slutty Kansas chicks. What? That's his son to his left? Doesn't look a bit like his father. In other March Madness news, how about Ohio? 25% of the Sweet 16. One team headed to Elite 8. Ohio U. to face a point guard-less UNC. Only 2 Sweet 16 teams from west of the Mississippi. Wet dream for CBS. Let's get rolling!
How funny is the Missouri loss to Norfolk State inside Kansas? It's so funny that even the nightly news dorks are just laughing in your face, Mizzou. Here is WIBW-13 in Topeka coming back from commercial break and this anchor chick just blatantly laughing at Tiger Nation. You might remember how these two states hate each other and that Mizzou has never been to a Final Four. LOL! LOL! JUMP!
All is not lost for the Duke basketball program. Most of these guys have a NCAA tournament ring, so why not bail early, get home and hit some faux Irish bar in Durham that opened at 5:30 this morning? Makes sense to us. Guess how many tournament wins Lehigh now has in its history. One. Guess Duke's FG% from 3-point range last night: 23%. Boys, when you fire 6-of-26 from three, you're going to lose to a #15. Kudos. Let's get rolling!
Things have been going badly for Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom this season and it looks like he's isolated the reason -- his wife, Khloe Kardashian. We told you so. Lamar reportedly blames the couple's stupid reality show for taking his focus off the game and has decided to take a step back from his marriage. He's apparently even gone so far as to stop having sex with that disgusting-looking woman. It's about time. Come back to us, Lamar!
