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.
The football season might be over but that just means that our guy, Asher, in charge of the Cheerleader of the Week turns his attention to basketball. As many of you know, the bigger NCAA schools have football cheerleaders, a separate basketball cheerleading unit and then a basketball dance team. Asher, ever the sleuth, has infiltrated the Alabama Crimson Cabaret to introduce you guys to Hart. Nope, not giving you freaks her last name. JUMP!
First of all, good luck to J.R. Smith's sister when she disappears in China & ends up handcuffed to a Nike factory chair where she'll be making Jordan Concords with just her left hand for 17¢/ day. What's this all about? Smith, a six-year NBA vet, went to China to play ball this year because there is massive cash to be made. He took his sister & girlfriend along for the adventure. Then last night sh*t hit the fan. His sister threw a bottle on the court and started brawling. JUMP!
Look, we're not publishing this blog post to show you the high school girls' basketball fight last night in Kingston, New York. Some black chicks decide to start brawling while the white girls on the teams try to find a rock to hide behind. A few black parents come out of the stands and it's on. Fists start flying and aggressions flow over. But it's the P.A. announcer who steals the show in our minds. This white guy, obviously not used to calling street brawls, gets all white. JUMP!
It's nearly impossible to tell when all 65 Fox affiliates are showing live basketball anymore because they don't put 'live' in the upper right corner so we thought this was some replay of Mavs-Pistons. It's actually 'live' tonight and we just happened to be 65 channels beyond where our normal surfing ends. Not even five minutes after turning it to the game, we came across these bros with the best NBA seats they'll ever get - between Vince Carter and Delonte West. Anyone got a blunt? JUMP!
So you see #34 in white. That's Cole Vanderbilt. Looks to be a center on the Connell High School (WA) basketball team. The kid is getting destroyed across America today (front of Yahoo!) for his antics in a December 22 game against some dorkwads from Highland H.S. How crazy have things gotten today? There's a Facebook page floating around that has phone numbers for Cole and his thug teammate who took part in a couple rough foul calls. You make the call - JUMP!
While the douchebags at Around the Horn are debating whether Mark Cuban is right about the NBA being jerkoffs for not scheduling them into Washington D.C. to visit the Prez, we were investigating reports of Mark in Miami for New Year's. What we know is that Cuban was hammered (or just looked that way) at Wet Bar Miami, according to those in attendance, including a Notre Dame nose tackle. Frosted Flakes shirt on New Year's for a 53-year-old-man? Ok. JUMP!
It's the typo that is causing lots of LOLs around the basketball and newspaper world as the Charlotte Observer seemed to have some deadline issues with this morning's sports page. Of course newspaper/media insider Jim Romenesko went searching for answers. A sports editor tried to explain how a copy editor went to correct the disc spelling to disk and instead ended up with dick. Ahh, old media, so embarrassed by a random 'dick' in the newspaper (via @RosinskiBill)
While the Hollywood gossip blogs are concentrating on news Olivia Wilde and SNL funny guy Jason Sudeikis dating news, we're busy comprehending what this means to Kansas basketball. You see, Sudeikis is from Overland Park, Kansas. He's a diehard KU fan. And now he's responsible for taking his hot chick to see the Jayhawks destroy Howard last week, 89-34. Need proof that funny guys can still pull A-list poon? This is case study #1. JUMP!
How big was last night in the sports world? Huge if you're Savannah Brinson, longtime girlfriend & baby mamma of LeBron James' two boys, the youngest born in 2004. LeBron, during a birthday/New Year's party, asked Savannah to marry him. Of course the ring is gigantic. We're not wasting time looking up the value. Let's just say it's worth more than your house. Brinson has been with LeBron since high school, making her the most patient woman in NBA history. JUMP!
