Our friends at Friends of the Program have published the full name of the Alabama fan they believe is behind the LSU fan teabagging. His name, allegedly, is Brian Downing, and that comes from good authority. There are also more photos of the alleged teabagger that pretty much put the puzzle pieces together. We also know that Brian used to work at a sporting goods store. Was he an Alabama student? Yep. JUMP!
We've kinda stayed away from the story of Bama fan dropping his nuts on passed out LSU fan at the BCS Championship festivities because both sets of fans already seem to hate us and we like to visit SEC country without getting our asses whipped. But now the story has become a crime scene. The New Orleans Police Department is hunting themselves a Bama sexual predator and has this poster circulating to help bring justice to the Krystal's teabagging. JUMP!
Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is a dumb thug, this we know. He got suspended at Oklahoma State and he's been dealing with unpaid loans since he's been in the pros. He's supposedly got plenty of talent, though. Too bad he didn't show it in 2011, a season where he caught 63 balls for 928 yards -- not bad, but certainly not as advertised. So what is Bryant doing this offseason? Fightin' Weezy in the club. Seriously. JUMP!
It's the tweet that sent bloggers & Twitter dorks into a frenzy 20 minutes ago. Rob Lowe, off the radar to most sports junkies, is now reporting that Peyton Manning's NFL career is over. How does he know such news? He has f*cking sources, baby! Lowe went on to tweet Rich Eisen asking him what he's hearing. Lowe then told his followers he hopes his sources are wrong. Can we all just say a little prayer that Lowe is right and scooped Schefter & Mort? Please. (via @RobLowe)
The big NFL news being floated today by ESPN and gobbled up by the Denver Post and the rest of the gobblers is that Baby Jesus played most of the 2nd half in Foxboro in severe pain. Chest bruises and torn rib cartilage. But Tim Tebow can't possibly be sidelined by such minor injuries. Oh, but he wouldn't have played this week if Denver beat the Patriots, says the Post. Things were so bad for BJ that he somehow muscled out a smile for goofy Pats kid. JUMP!
As the Alabama fans on Twitter like to say, Dre Kirkpatrick is a 'former BAMA player & student.' Way back like nine days ago he was a current BAMA football player whom ESPN has rated 8th overall on their 'Big Board.' Well, he was picked up in Florida this morning for pot possession. No biggie. The usual 20 grams of weed. But who was with him and also arrested for pot possession? Some dude who used to play for BAMA and now works for Under Armour. JUMP!
Benicia (CA) Police Log for Saturday, January 14, 5:16 p.m. PST: Dispatch received a call of a woman screaming inside an apartment on Buchanan Street. It turns out she was cheering for a football game, more than likely the crazy finish to the San Francisco 49ers playoff game. Let's think about this for a minute: California, just after 5 p.m. EST, football game, 40 miles from Candlestick Park. Yeah, we'll go with the 49ers game. This one seems to add up. She wasn't being beaten.
The Juice is loose! Or at least his Florida home is. Wife killer, kidnapper and former Buffalo Bills running back O.J. Simpson is in foreclosure. The bank decided to take away Simpson's Miami home, which he won't be needing anytime soon anyway, because he owes them more than $700,000. It's really too bad when such a swell guy happens upon misfortune. Although maybe he could repay the bank in cigarettes. Here are the details. Check it!
The new thing to do, if you work for an airline, is to taunt the losing playoff football team's fans when they happen to be in your city. It started in Denver, when some folks who work for United decided to stick it in the craw of Pittsburgh Steelers fans by posting a message on the big board at the gate about Tim Tebow. They followed suit over the weekend in San Francisco, when some 9ers fans who work for Virgin decided to stick it to Saints fans with a Jay-Z reference. JUMP!
We're still getting submissions for our 2012 Alabama BCS Trophy Tour gallery, but figured you guys would appreciate a select few to wet your appetite. We've tried to bust through the Dr. Pepper photo gallery site to no avail so if you come across the secret sauce, pass it along. As for the fans, we've yet to see the real superfans with the face paint, shirts off, etc. This is still pure Alabama, though. Good work, Bammers. JUMP!
Billionaire Donald Trump is a fan of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Or at least he's a fan of breast cancer research. The Celebrity Apprentice host dropped a lot of dough at charity auction for breast cancer research on a signed Tim Tebow helmet and jersey. Hopefully, Trump and his gigantic ego won't ruin those things like he ruined the USFL. We've got the story for you right here. Check it!
Alabama fans are reportedly waiting four hours to get their picture taken with the BCS trophy, according to the news channels that are actually covering people taking their photo with the BCS trophy. We're still putting the finishing touches on a stellar Alabama fan BCS trophy experience post so if you've been at one of the Kroger, Publix, Academy Sports stops and have a photo we need to see, send it in: firstname.lastname@example.org
It was a worst-case scenario for State Farm Insurance last night on national television. How many times did the State Farm commercial featuring Aaron Rodgers run? 10? 14? So that, combined with America's jealousy towards Rodgers, made for some serious NSFW action on Twitter last night for a lily white guy who isn't used to receiving the f-bomb treatment. Our editors scoped out 19 favorites and serve them up for you haters. JUMP!
Imagine you & a buddy head over to Applebees to get the 2 for $20, watch some football & pound some 23 oz. beers. You just happen to be 49ers fans living in the Atlanta area. Then, imagine a convicted felon just happens to be at Applebees & is a Saints fan. It just happens to be the day when the Saints & 49ers are facing off in the NFL Divisional round. The 49ers score, you cheer & Saints fan tells you he's going to shut your ass up for good. What happens next? Gunshots. JUMP!
We are introducing the Aaron Rodgers' face. This is what happens when you miss a wide open receiver and you are forced to settle for a field goal. It is a look of pure anger and frustration. Cheer up Aaron, the cast of Napoleon Dynamite was in the crowd to watch you in this playoff game. Of course FOX plugged this in for their new show that starts tonight. I doubt they give two shits about the Green Bay Packers or the New York Giants. JUMP!
Name these old farts at M&T Bank Stadium where the Baltimore Ravens took on the Houston Texans game. What the hell are kinda gloves are they wearing, what is that in your hand, and what the hell is kind of helmet is that? Also spotted in the crowd were two Texas cowboys in the crowd. I guess it's true, only steers and queers come from Texas.There was also a girl in the crowd with a mustache. JUMP!
