Nice bow tie Anthony Grant. You kind of look like a waiter at my local seafood place. The baby in the background really adds to the picture too. I also think Grant's yelling is pretty half assed. C'mon Grant, if you are going to yell, yell. We were tipped off that the Alabama photobomb guy would be out in full force with his minions. Check it out after the JUMP!
A sign in the crowd was spotted that said 'Jeremy Lin Hates The Buckeyes. Go Blue!' on College Gameday today proving that Linsanity is literally everywhere. Hey, if Jeremy Lin is behind the Wolverines, I would worry if I were a Buckeye. There also was a Michigan guy wearing a bikini helmet with a hula skirt in the crowd. There also was a guy that said 'I heart U Denard'. Aren't we supposed to be getting ready for a basketball game? JUMP!
If you ever wondered if Digger Phelps was getting old and out of energy. This should answer it. He hasn't. Jay Koot is on the scene in Ann Arbor and got to witness the Digger dance in person.The crowd and cheerleaders loved it when Digger shook it to "Just A Little Bit" fist pumping from side to side. We'll have more on College Gameday up shortly until then check out the video after the JUMP!
Don't blame Jeremy Lin's 9 turnovers for last night's embarrassing Knicks 89-85 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. Look right at the 3-point FG percentages. NY was 4-of-24, while N.O. went 7-of-12. End of story. It was the Hornets 7th win of the season. Yes, a bunch of gamblers got their nuts kicked in. In other basketball news, we're leaving in an hour to visit the set of ESPN GameDay in Ann Arbor. Gotta keep an eye on this Digger Phelps character. Let's get rolling!
Oh, hey, there's Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox yesterday just doing their thing in Cabo because what else are you going to do with Fox's money in the winter? Sit around in L.A.? Pfft. Gotta admit it has been many years since we've seen the Rickster with his shirt off on a beach. What's the 2012 Rickster rocking? Man cans. Dushku is still in perfect shape, possibly even looking like she needs to slam a Five Guys. JUMP!
You might remember our friends at Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, AZ Tebowing after a regular-season victory. Yeah, well it's playoffs time in Arizona. Connor Upchurch (@gonetochurch) filed a report with us last night. "Check out More of Scottsdale DMHS
#tebowing in round 1 AIA playoffs vs. Anthem Bouldercreek," Connor tweeted. DM is 20-9. Get on the bandwagon - NOW! Um, DM's next game is against 28-1 Corona del Sol. We need a miracle, boys!
Contrary to popular belief, that old coot Dr. Ruth is still as dirty as ever with her sex talk and has even evolved with the times which means talking about the "back door" on Twitter. Guess what else she's talking about? Jeremy Lin! Of course she is because who isn't talking Jeremy Lin at this point. And here we figured this broad was either dead or too busy getting laid to tweet about hoping Jeremy has enough condoms. JUMP!
Would this qualify as "Linnsanity?" New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin has become a media darling and his face is all over the place, but one Florida State sorority girl apparently doesn't have a TV or know how to use the Internet. While we presume she wanted to ask Lin to her formal, she instead asks "Jerry Linn," who she thinks plays for the New York Giants and is black. She loves black guys. We're sure daddy loves that. Here's the video.
Sacramento Kings Seattle SuperSonics new general manager. Mike Tyson was at MSG last night for the Jeremy Lin experience, but the former world champ didn't get to see a scoring outburst from Linsanity. He'd have to settle for 10 pts & 13 dimes in a 100-85 Knicks win. The victory - 7th in a row - gets NY back to .500. Don't think Vegas isn't taking notice. The Knicks are now 30/1 to win the NBA Finals. Let's get rolling!
Yep, we've been keeping one eye on this Kentucky live basketball practice that's airing on ESPNU this afternoon. John Calipari is running a practice with about 2,500 fans hanging out to see what it's like inside the program. What have we learned in this practice? Not much other than this is one helluva recruiting tool. When you have students sweating practice, a recruit knows this is life or death. (watch live on ESPNU)
Two courtside seats for tonight's Knicks-Kings game are going for $3,200 on StubHub - per. Let us know if you're buying those to be a witness to the Jeremy Lin Experience at 7:30. We'll be at home slobbering over a guy who just won't have an off night. Things are so out of control that BC is launching 'Linsanity Watch,' our daily tribute to all things Lin. Hell yes we're jumping on this pageview bandwagon. This guy is more money than Erin Andrews in 2008. JUMP!
Don't know who Jesse Jane is? Leave this site right now. Of course she's the porn star from such classics as Bad Girls 3, Jack's POV 4, Posh Kitten and Busty Cops. It just happened that she was at last night's OKC Thunder-Jazz game right in the front row with what is believed to be her son. Of course viewers at home noticed. @thecajunboy grabbed this photo and led to our investigation into her fandome. JUMP!
It was Asian Night in Toronto for Knicks-Raptors and none other than the Asian-American Jeremy Lin dropped a game-winner with :05 on the clock (VIDEO). Of course he did. And Twitter 'BLEW UP.' And NBATV 'BLEWUP.' And ESPN 'BLEW UP.' This is like a wet dream for broadcasters who are used to getting their asses handed to them between the Super Bowl and March Madness. Meanwhile, the Red Wings set an NHL record for consectutive home wins. Let's get rolling!
We were going to let this go, but late this afternoon ESPN's PR department released a statement with Digger Phelps name on it regarding what happened at Vandy on Saturday morning. BC told you early Saturday that Kentucky fans were going to crash the Commodores big moment on ESPN GameDay. But what happened before the show started has UK fans p*ssed off and bloggers trying to figure out why Digger Phelps is such a hardo. JUMP!
Kudos to SportsGrid for digging this out of the Chinese newspaper recycling bin. In other Lin news, Floyd Mayweather Jr. yesterday tweeted that all the hype surrounding Lin is because he's Asian. The AP sent out a report. The San Francisco Chronicle ran it. And the friggin' Asians are going nuts this morning. Our favorite? DickTater: I can't wait to see Manny Pacquio whippin his arse..giving him a horse whippin'. Such anger! Let's get rolling!
These Vanderbilt nerds flocked from their libraries and stopped studying organic chemistry for a couple hours to cheer on their Commodores. Erin Andrews showed up to give us one of her weird sideline reporter faces. A giant Kevin Stallings head was spotted in the crowd. John Calapari looked like he was going to have an aneurism on the sideline of Vandy's weird shaped arena. JUMP!
