There were like 1500 people watching the Pistons-Wizards game last night, hence the lack of buzz from Brandon Knight jumping over the Detroit bench and into the Gatorade buckets. The Pistons won a meaningless game, the Wizards draft pick positioning (2nd worst NBA record) gets better and BC lands this video of Knight getting rained on. Everyone is a winner this morning. JUMP!
Someone needs to end this Martina Navratilova disaster on Dancing With The Stars. Look, she doesn't want to be dancing with 'Tony' or whatever they call this Russian heartthrob. You throw Martina's ass on the floor with Kim Johnson & the tennis legend is going HAM, just grinding all over Kim's ass. Sad. In NBA news, the Knicks are .500! The bad news: Stoudemire is out indefinitely. In Final Four news, fans are paying $900 to stay in the French Quarter! Let's get rolling!
Los Angeles Lakes guard Kobe Bryant didn't have a very good night on Sunday. He got benched in the fourth quarter for not playing defense. Fortunately, he had a pretty nice day on Saturday. That's when Bryant went and dropped more than $300,000 on a new Ferrari 548 Italia. Guess how he paid for it. We've got the details of the transaction and the car. It's got a little bit of power, if there was any doubt. Check it!
Yes, we saw Dancing Baylor Fan live during yesterday's game. However, unlike the hundreds of Internet dorks who aren't married, don't have responsibilities besides eating, taking dumps and watching sports, I waited until this morning to address this guy. See, the competition just knows of him as Dancing Baylor Guy. We actually went out and found Thomas Leathers' Facebook photos. JUMP!
No biggie, this was from Saturday when nobody is watching SportsCenter. Anyway, how about the Kentucky Final Four? John Clay of the Herald-Leader writes this morning: Welcome to what promises to be the wildest, craziest, most hyped, most exciting, most nerve-wracking and sleepless six days leading up to the biggest, most-anticipated sporting event in the history of our little commonwealth. Bourbon St. is officially on notice. Let's get rolling!
Yes, that is a giant Jim Boeheim and Big Orange mascot signs in the crowd at in the East Regional Final. The Ohio State Buckeyes took on the Syracuse Orange in the Elite Eight where the winner goes to the Final Four. Aaron Craft's family were shown on TV and didn't look like they cared about the game at all. Jim Boeheim was upset with almost every call on the sidelines as the refs continued the tradition of being awful. JUMP!
Louisville's coach Rick Pitino definitely looks like he just lost a lot of blood and is looking for more. He was furiously running around the court in the first half as the Florida Gators drained 3 after 3 in Louisville's face. Both the Louisville and Florida cheerleaders looked hot as usual as the Gators and the Cardinals battled in the Elite Eight. Karl Hess officiated the game so there were a lot of "questionable" calls. JUMP!
Of course Asher went out and found a Syracuse cheerleader to ogle during tonight's 7 p.m. game against Ohio State. Her name is Siena and she has the usual photo gallery that you guys like. Dirty schoolgirl Halloween costume, standing over a passed out bro, etc. In other words, she'll keep you company during the CBS timeouts. For those of you planning to gamble on the game, you should note that the Buckeyes are -3. More of Siena - JUMP!
The Kansas Jayhawks had just wrapped up a 60-57 victory over N.C. State last night so of course the TBS cameras wanted into Bill Self's lockerroom to get the post-game speech. Congratulations, boys. Blah, blah, blah. Oh, and then Bill reminds certain players that they'll be "taking a leak" after media. Can't say we knew college basketball players were subjected to random drug tests. JUMP!
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!
