The big news flying around the Internet tonight centers around the women's basketball game at Central Michigan who is facing Ohio. Of course we only care about this because of the oddity. It's not like women's basketball players throw down that often, especially in the MAC. Boots on the ground say there were punches thrown, coaches on the floor and even ejections. (Um, someone get us the name of that blonde ref, NOW!) JUMP!
We're told by @JJMandros that this is from last night's Desert Mountain vs. Chaparral (Arizona) basketball game where DM beat its rival and rush the court for an impromptu #Tebowing. First rush the court #Tebowing in high school basketball history? Seems to be unless one of you sends in proof of another: firstname.lastname@example.org. And here we figured the craze would die out when Baby Jesus went back to building hospitals in the Phillippines. Nope.
Anthony Grant is the head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide who travelled to Rupp Arena to take on the Kentucky Wildcats. Anthony Grant is also a guy who picks his nose on national television. It was a redneck on redneck battle between the fan bases of Alabama and Kentucky. Can you think of any more ass backwards states? Whatever, the cheerleaders were hot. JUMP!
This may be the best College Basketball Gameday sign of all time. A picture of ESPN's sports personality Jay Bilas looking like a gangster with a sign that reads "JAY BILAS THE TRILLEST". Two bored girls sat in the background with a sign that read "The losing stops now." It may be time to get you some caffeine or amphetamines to wake you up for all of the college basketball today because gameday is in Pittsburgh. They also played the 'dating game' with the players. JUMP!
Prenup! Prenup! Prenup! We want prenup! That's what Kobe Bryant probably wishes he would have said right about now. Of course, hindsight is always 20/20. Kobe is giving up half of his assets to his ex-wife Vanessa. That tally comes to around $75 million and three homes. That's right, all three of the couple's homes in Newport Beach. We're sure Kobe will recover, but this one had to hurt a little bit. Check it!
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul -- that still sounds weird to say -- apparently likes his new locale and plans on staying a while. Paul is reportedly dropping a cool $8.5 million on a post Bel Air pad owned by Avril Lavigne. Is it worth it? Well, that's where the Fresh Prince lives and, oh yeah, it has a covered outdoor living room. A covered outdoor living room! Only in L.A. Here's a quick run through Paul's new pad. Check it!
Of course you remember Fox Sports sideline/entertainment reporter Jimena Sanchez from October when we called her the Hottest Oakland Raiders Superfan. Well, guess who's back and claiming the Hottest Lakers Superfan title? Jimena was defending her title last night on Twitter during the Heat-Lakers game, but watched her Lakers lose, 98-87. Her team might have lost, but Jimena made sure us straight men & lesbians came out winners. JUMP!
This comes from Tuesday's LSU-Auburn basketball game which was won by the Tigers, 65-58. Thankfully Dari Nowkhah didn't pop out his nuts & slap them against 'Dylan's' face. Nope, won't be an investigation here. As for a Rob Lowe update, his kids are giving him sh*t over the Peyton Manning retirement Twitter fiasco. As for the Indy Star, editors there didn't even write a story on the story. They used a USA Today wire story. Good work. Let's get rolling!
About an hour ago on American Idol we had the chance to meet Charlotte Bobcats dancer Brittany Kerr and hear her audition with Joss Stone's Spoiled. Brittany's soulful voice, ripped jeans and exposed belly helped her land a coveted ticket to Hollywood and we instantly have a full-fledged sports angle to this season of Idol. Kerr, currently on the dance team, had a viewing party tonight & things went fairly well. Yes-no-yes. JUMP!
Most of your celeb sites this week have been paying attention to Playboy Playmate Fracesca Frigo because she's obviously super hot, has a giant fake rack and is in a bikini while the rest of America freezes its ass off. But we dug deeper. Found a sports angle. Made Ms. Frigo relevant to you guys who like your women to have a sports angle. It seems Ms. August 2010 is a basketball fan and even owns a baseball hat of a certain NY team. JUMP!
Former Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was named U.S. Cultural Ambassador by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whom he towers over like he towers over most everyone else. Kareem looked somewhat befuddled when Clinton gave him a children's book after he gave her a Lakers jersey. Just another great moment in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar towering over short people. We've got a gallery. Check it!
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade celebrated his 30th birthday over the weekend in Miami. It was a star-studded event. In addition to Wade's teammates stopping by, celebrities like Common, TI and Usher were in the house. Kelly Rowland serenaded Wade with Happy Birthday. Oh, and dude got a new McLaren MP4-12C, which retails for about $230,000. All in all, we'd say it was a pretty good birthday. Check it!
Received this one from at least 6-7 of you guys but Pete in Muskegon was quicker on the trigger. "Guaranteed winner in Vegas...tomorrow night," Pete wrote. Since it's not late February I'm not even sure if MSU is #9 or #19. Someone wake me in March. In other news this morning, the guy who invented inflatable shoes (sued the shit out of Reebok over Pump) and NFL's flak jacket, died over the weekend. Also, money pouring in on the Patriots. Let's get rolling!
This is not a Photoshop job. It's really three basketball players from Ole Miss in perfect positioning this weekend. One thing led to another and the blogosphere lost its shit over this because 93% of us are white & are always feeling inferior to black dudes in the dong market. Here's the Ole Miss roster. As for the NFL, the GMen are getting +2.5. Our best bet is N.E. -7.5. T.J. Yates had opportunities. Tom Brady won't throw the INTs. Let's get rolling!
Nice mustache Skylar MacBee. Do us all a favor and shave that horrendous facial hair off for the good of college basketball. The number 2 Kentucky Wildcats traveled to The Summitt to take on the Tennessee Volunteers. John Calipari got pissed off at one of his players, hot Tennessee cheerleaders, and a weird giant cardboard face all after the JUMP!
Via News 11 (Little Rock): Officers arrested the Physical Education teacher and Assistant Girl's Basketball Coach at Maumelle High School, just after she left campus Thursday morning. "We had gotten tips from people at the school that they believed she was doing drugs on campus," said Lt. Jim Hansard with Maumelle Police. Woah, woah, woah. Don't jump to conclusions, Jimbo. What makes you think Brit is a meth head? The eyes? The caved in face? Cops, sheesh.
