Not sure what grocery store has advanced to this stage of ripping off kids, but AP photographer @evanvucci shows us that stupid plastic balls are officially history. In Linsanity news, the star is fading fast. Sure, he had 20 last night, but Tony Parker had 32 and the Spurs shot 54% from the field in a 118-105 win. The Knicks free fall continues as they are now 18-21. Meanwhile, the NY Post has turned to 'Texas Toast' headlines. Let's get rolling!
Yesterday we met the mini cheerleading dynamo that is South Carolina's Taryn. After a little more digging, BC Spirit Editor Asher is back with another round of this 5-footer with insane abs and even more bikini photos. Yes, we're trying to keep you SEC guys entertained. We know that boring SEC basketball tournament is of little interest. That said, here's one more shot of Taryn to enjoy this afternoon while listening to Finebaum. JUMP!
Anyone know if this is an actual cellphone? If so, we're buying one. Let us know where we can get one: firstname.lastname@example.org In other basketball news, how is the Jeremy Lin Experience going? He was 4-of-13 last night in Dallas. The Knicks lost 95-85 and their record fell to 18-20. Yes, that puts them in the 8th playoff position. How bad are things for Linsanity? The NY tabloids say Linsanity is over. Let's get rolling!
Seriously, we understand you guys aren't getting much sleep this week. We understand Gottieb is P90Xing between Big East games. It's only Tuesday and one of your jerkoff interns goes and pulls this logo switcheroo. Get it together, team WWL. Need to crack the whip and realize that this is one giant f-ing mess before going live with it on SportsCenter. Who's producing this show? Doesn't this raise red flags. Have an ESPN fail we need to see? email@example.com
Of course BC knows you SEC freaks - besides Kentucky fan - is at home twiddling your thumbs not sure what to do in March before the big spring game. That means we need to entertain the rest of you until football returns in April. So we've told BC Spirit Editor Asher to get his ass in gear and find us the hottest of the hottest SEC cheerleaders. He visited Columbia, South Carolina and discovered Taryn, a tiny 5-foot firecracker. JUMP!
The price of gold on September 8, 2008 was $808 an ounce. Yesterday gold was $1,705 an ounce. A Chipotle burrito was $6.25. That same burrito today is $6.50. Costs are up everywhere. So why hasn't the cost of renting the UCLA cheerleaders gone up with the times. Way back in 2008 we discovered that it was possible to rent a UCLA cheerleader. The price was $100. Yep, it's the same price today. Still one of the greatest deals in sports. JUMP!
Kudos go out to @Saksadelic for watching closely during last night's 76ers-Bucks baby crawl competition. Gotta love Milwaukee moms going commando. We do. In case you were wondering, Bucks won 97-93. As for March Madness, teams last night punching tickets include: VCU, Saint Mary's, Davidson & Loyola (MD). Basketball junkies will be happy to know that the Big East tourney kicks off today at Noon. 9 televised games today. Let's get rolling!
So what if they can't spell at the University of North Carolina? They're ACC champs, dammit! Here's a lesson in taunting, courtesy of the North Carolina and Duke student governments. Rule No. 1 when chiding an opponent via Twitter is to know how to spell. Unfortunately, some people who go to UNC failed to observe this rule. Someone from Duke was, of course, happy to help them understand. Here's the rundown. JUMP!
We hired new BC Spirit Editor Asher away from his old gig at College Cheer Heaven because the guy is a genius when it comes to discovering untapped cheerleading talent at non-BCS schools. Take today, for example. The guy noses around the University of Louisiana-Lafayette until he finds this Parris chick. She's just cheering in obscurity and - BOOM - all of a sudden she's a star. Wait until you see her in a bikini - JUMP!
Have you noticed the new trend among black athletes? They have to out-cool each other with some sort of trendy accessory. Glasses, of course, are the new cool thing to wear on your face. Did you watch TV during NBA All-Star weekend? You know what we're talking about. Then we have LeBron James, yesterday, setting a new fashion trend that just might have taken out-cooling to a level only LeBron could. America didn't react well to this purse. JUMP!
Good chance you've never (a.) heard of a former basketball player from Louisiana-Lafayette by the name of Anthony Johnson, and (b.) watched an Air Asia ASEAN Basketball League brawl. Before broadband these Asian basketball league fights would be underground on VHS tapes. Today we get to seen Johnson yesterday drilling this Asian over a hard foul in a heated game between the Air Asia Patriots & the San Miguel Beermen. Seriously, that's the teams nickname. JUMP!
How about those Buckeyes getting their asses handed to them in the first half, only to make a huge comeback and grab a share of the B1G title - on MSU's court. Still, the #1 seeds have to be Kansas, UK, Syracuse, Duke/UNC, right? Better ACC performance gets the #1 seed in the West? In NBA news, who was guarding Rajon Rondo yesterday? Is that Jeremy Lin's guy? Rondo only went 18-17-20, giving Faux Bird some softball shorts wood. Let's get rolling!
You want a March Madness photo, punks? YOU REALLY WANT A PHOTO THAT PAINTS A PICTURE OF MARCH MADNESS. DO YOU? Ok, we are stuck at BC HQ watching these basketball games and happened upon this Illinois St. assistant coach. One of you knows his name. Drop us a line. We'd like to properly recognize this guy for those eyeballs. firstname.lastname@example.org
This little kid looks psyched for the Boston Celtics-New York Knicks game today. The other guy in the picture? Not so much. Jeremy Lin struggled in the beginning of the game so there wasn't much Linsanity. Spike Lee showed up in another ridiculous outfit. Doc Rivers gave us his best confused/what the hell just happened face. Steve Novak showed that he just does not miss 3 pointers. JUMP!
The Florida Gators were relentless in making fun of this Kentucky Wildcat team as they rolled into Gainesville this weekend. Students have been camping out since Friday for this game. Anthony Davis was the subject of much ridicule where Gator fans made signs ripping on his notorious unibrow. In case you are wondering, yes the unibrow is moveable. JUMP!
It's no secret that Peyton Manning has been training at Duke this week. Well he showed up for the Duke-UNC basketball game where the winner of the game wins the ACC regular season championship. The Cameron Crazies were are insane as ever. A random Duke fan sung the National Anthem and looked as awkward as possible. Also, we aren't sure what the hell Erin Andrews was wearing. JUMP!
Our boots on the ground in Durham sent us this shot from Cameron Indoor where it was learned that the Duke dance team has a male member and it appears he has some serious sugar in those shorts. What was supposed to be an investigation into the dance team turned into a 'WTF, there's a black dude on the Duke dance team,' post. We're not sure whether he performs during on-court routines. Efforting. Anyway, this has to be a Duke first, right? JUMP!
A very well done 'Ball So Hard' sign made it's way onto College Gameday for the Duke Blue Devils and UNC Tarheels that showed the ending buzzer beater of the time the last two teams met. Of course this is a reference from a Jay-Z and Kanye West song and the addition of Austin Rivers makes this sign awesome. Erin Andrews interviewed probably the palest Duke girl on the face of the planet. JUMP!
Is the downfall of Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom complete? We're not entirely sure, but last year's NBA Sixth Man of the Year just got shipped off to the D-League. Lamar will be spending some time with the Texas Legends, who, decidedly, are not composed of Legends. The Mavs made the move so Lamar could get into mental and physical shape. Ouch! We trace Odom's downfall back to its roots. You probably won't be surprised what we find.
