Busted Coverage 5 Questions Editor Joe Student emailed headquarters earlier this week to know if he should take an interview with Houston Texans stud RB Arian Foster. We get these opportunities quite often and most athletes are completely boring. Not Foster. He opens up on the NCAA about its stupid rules and who on the Texans is getting fat during this lockout. Here are questions the Houston Chronicle won't ask Arian. JUMP!
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison sat down for an interview recently with Men's Journal and also posed for the lead photo with two handguns. Dude went nuclear on Roger Goodell, teammates, other NFLers and society. But there is a perfectly good reason for all of this. "I was misquoted," says Harrison. Uh, huh. The Steelers LB took a grenade for his boys in the NFL and now it's time for some backtracking! Details - JUMP!
We had all but forgotten about Allen Aldridge until today when we were up to our normal Google searches for NFLers & NBAers selling houses. Aldridge was a Super Bowl champion with the Denver Broncos and made $3,000,000+ in his final year (2001) with the Detroit Lions. Not exactly a household name these days, imagine our shock when we found out this is what the ex-linebacker is trying to sell. Um, looks like somebody was smart with his NFL cash. JUMP!
Joe Flacco, as we told you a couple weeks ago, got hitched this summer and there was a wedding photo embargo that was officially pulled today. Not content with the typical wedding party photos, Flacco and his bride went whimsy. Busted Coverage Associate Editor Monty isn't buying the act and has had enough of Flacco's New Jersey 'Situation' act. Get ready for Joe to get destroyed and more pics - JUMP!
Brooke Daniels, the former Miss Texas being sued by Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams, has apparently gone from the majors to the minors. Daniels is now dating University of Houston infielder David Murphy and his .241 batting average. Our editors, as BC always does, went the extra mile and dug deep to figure out how a Houston baseball player is hooking up with Roy's ex. Dude goes from the bench to this. JUMP!
Our Austin tipsters pointed us in the direction of Cedric Benson's house last night where there was a huge pool party & chance for ladies to scope out Ced's pad. The bash came complete with a theme name "Top of the World Independence Day Pool Party," an open bar, glow necklaces and a DJ spinning House. A bright spot in all this for Ced, the Bengals & NFL? No DUIs and/or headlines on TMZ! 68 photos from the bash at Ced's - JUMP!
Cincinnati media is going nuts today over the news that Carson Palmer's suburban 5,500 sq. ft. house has sold for $1,915,000. The 5 bed, 5.5 bath house has "Pool, Spa, Golf Green, Pond & Lush landscaping" according to the real estate listing. From what we can see, it's also a pretty boring pad. But this is the sign, for most Bengals backers, that the QB is serious about this plan to never play for the team ever again. The house was bought for $2mm & change in 2003. Pics - JUMP!
Our boy Cam Newton was in Vegas over the weekend for the Warren Moon Sports Dream Foundation Charity reception with other luminaries such as Michael Irving, Jerry Rice, Ray Lewis, Too Tall Jones, Eric Dickerson, etc. But the big news for Busted Coverage was that our future meal ticket (in case you didn't hear, we own his BCS pants - value skyrocketing!) was having some bro time with his big brother Cecil Newton Jr. at the craps table. Go crazy, SEC Nation!
It's the summer of wedding gift registries around here. First it was our purchase of a knife sharpener for Tony Romo's nuptials, then a $25 napkin for Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries and now a $5 Lenox napkin for Ben Roethlisberger's wedding. The big news, right now, surrounding the Roethlisberger ceremony has to be the nearly $5,000 in gifts THAT HAVEN'T been bought for the Steelers multi-millionaire QB and his fiance Ashley Harlan. Details - JUMP!
Wes Welker and Anna Burns are still together. The two were first outed way back in January of 2010 & relationship updates could be literally counted on one hand. So imagine our glee this morning when we saw Dickie V. with the couple at this weekend's Miss Hooters International pageant. Burns has a non-existent online profile and Welker hasn't updated his Twitter account since May 28. We actually beat the Boston Globe to a gossip piece! New photos of Anna - JUMP!
BC associate editor Monty sent us this dispatch: I was pretty sure there couldn't be anything funny about a middle-aged dude trying to have sex with a minor, but then I watched this video of now-former Tampa Bay Buccaneers' luxury seat manager Brian C. Weiss, who was arrested Sunday. The 38-year-old Weiss traveled to Clermont, Fla. with the intention of meeting a 14-year-old girl's guardian, who would then allow Weiss to have sex with the girl. Screencaps! JUMP!
If you said Kim Kardashian, you've just won a fabulous washer/dryer set! Actually, no. We're not giving you anything, but former USC and probably soon-to-be former New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush is dating a woman who looks exactly like his ex, Kim Kardashian. How much does she look like The Giant Ass? They could be sisters. A closer examination - PHOTO Gallery! JUMP!
Now think about this for a second, some sculpture artist named Franco Castelluccio has been working on a Tim Tebow piece that he hopes will bring $12,000. Don't misunderstand us, art is wonderful. The BC office has a couple of beautiful pieces we've picked up on trips to Santa Fe. We also understand that there is this thing called exploitation. How dare Franc play on the emotions of the hundreds of thousands of Tebow worshipers. Don't do it, people. It's just Timmy breaking a tackle. JUMP!
Our buddy Brandon over at BroBible, who considers himself a big fisherman, begins his day by checking Busted Coverage so let's give him something this Monday morning to wrap his head around. Of course Brandon doesn't care that Jacksonville Jaguars draft pick Blaine Gabbert is about to choke on his fly fishing pole. LOOK at that Rainbow! Nice one, eh Wenard? First thing ladies see is Blaine's runway good looks. First thing a fisherman zones in on is that fatty. Full shot after the JUMP!
Hayden Panettiere likes athletes, that we know. After breaking up with heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko, Panettiere has moved on with former University of Colorado and current New York Jets receiver Scotty McKnight, a seventh-round pick in this year's draft. Is Hayden out of her mind? This loser will be lucky to make the practice squad! Photos! JUMP!
We're about 6 weeks out from the start of NFL training camps and still don't have a labor deal. At this point we're running out of lockout stories and stupid updates on Tim Tebow so let's mix it up today. Burnt Toast Editor Peter Burns suggested we spend some time chatting on Twitter with former porn star Ashlynn Brooke about the Packers and football in general. Great idea! Take the time today to fire off a question to this Oklahoma Sooners & Green Bay fan. A chick talking football to you should ease the pain of this stupid lockout.
