Maybe you missed the news this week that Matt Leinart was released from the Houston Texans, making him a free agent with a career 8-10 record. If this really is the end of the road he walks away with $23,260,000 in career earnings. Makes us wonder why he'd waste time in March throwing with Carson Palmer and Matt Barkley while there are cold beverages waiting at the bar. Why bother throwing? (via @MattLeinartQB)
This is the first time since February 13, 2008 that Jennifer Walcott has been featured on Busted Coverage. After her Chihuahuas were killed in a tainted meatballs attack, she and her ex-NFLer husband Adam Archuleta pretty much fell off the map. Of course a tainted meatball attack is something a Playboy Playmate doesn't get over very easily. Thankfully, Mrs. Archuleta is back with a new(ish) shoot. JUMP!
Via: Cops are investigating whether a star NFL wide receiver with a rough-and-tumble reputation punched a woman in the face at a Chelsea nightclub, sources said Wednesday. The young woman filed a police report against Brandon Marshall, saying the 6-foot-4, 230-pound wideout smacked her in the eye outside the Marquee nightclub about 4 a.m. Sunday, sources said. Sources said cops are looking to speak with all the parties involved. The Bears response? JUMP!
You probably know of Heath Evans as the bald former fullback who has an NFL Network gig. Tonight we know of Heath as the guy who is claiming his Twitter account was hacked with claims that Heath is using @HeathEvans to pull some poon. The tweet, posted this evening, was quickly RT'd by a few eagle eyes before the former Saints & Patriots lead blocker got control of things. Heath says there's a very good answer to this situation. JUMP!
What's my motherf@*&!n' name? Snoop Doggy Dogg. Actually, now it's just Snoop Dogg and Snoop-a-Loop has himself a new football squad of scantily-clad chicks called the Los Angeles Rideretts. Snoop is the owns the Rideretts, who will begin play in the Lady's Arena Football League this year. We're pretty sure this is going be a huge success. We really can't wait. Can you tell just how excited we are? JUMP!
As you might remember from last week, Busted Coverage broke the news that Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema had wedding registries at five different stores, possibly a sports/athlete marriage record. Of course we bought the lovely Mrs. Bielema an egg timer. You drop the fake egg into a pot of boiling water and it tells you when the egg is ready for Bret to pound in one bite. Anyway, the wedding pics are in & Bret left the Wisky track suit at home. JUMP!
Remember how Hines Ward was busted last summer on a DUI charge? Yeah, at this point not a major deal in the grand scheme of a 'we've moved on,' culture. But then TMZ went and got the arrest video. What did we learn about Ward? He dreaded the possibility of ESPN learning of his arrest and splashing it on SportsCenter. Remember, ESPN is owned by Disney, which owns ABC, which produces Dancing With The Stars. Can't choose your coverage, Hines. JUMP!
Guess we can now pencil in Tony Romo to be playing indoor soccer on Monday nights somewhere in Texas. Adjust your paparazzi schedule accordingly, fools. BC tipster Troy sent word that Tony was up to his normal offseason routine so we had our eyes open this morning for Tony ripping shots on some goalie who spends his days working in commercial real estate. Yep, Tony played soccer last night. JUMP!
So it seems Jay Cutler has been spending some time in Cabo San Lucas with his pregnant girlfriend, Kristin Cavallari. Guess who else is pregnant and looking like a lobster? Yep, Cuts. Our old friend looks like he's building a little jelly roll along the waistline. Then again, last offseason we raised concerns about Matthew Stafford looking porky and he put the Lions in the playoffs. JUMP!
No f-ing excuses. None. Don't even try. An intern's ass is on the chopping block after this disaster on Good Morning America - this morning! How exactly do you go three days without adding an 'h' to Hannah Storm's name during this piece on Manning to the Broncos? We could understand if this was some Middle Eastern expert on Iran's nuclear energy program. In that case, who cares about a forgotten H? Don't even laugh, CBS. We have your stupid ass coming up later this morning.
Mark Teixeira must be a little angry that Sean Payton leased his house for a year and then went and bought this gigantic pad in the Vaquero subdivision in Westlake, Texas. Let this be a lesson, Tex. You didn't have a disco room in your house. Payton moved a few streets away and now has 7,700 sq. ft. of rock walls, Mediterranean stylings and a room with chalkboard walls. JUMP!
If you're following the race for the Republican presidential nomination, then we've got big news for you. San Diego Chargers quarterback and country bumpkin Philip Rivers has endorsed conservative Rick Santorum. Its seems like Santorum's warm embrace of Christian values is right up Phil's alley. The endorsement also confirmed something we were long suspicious of -- Rivers is out of his mind. JUMP!
So, there is an update to our story this morning on the Brett Favre Twitter account story. This is going to confuse many of you. Stick with us. Brett Favre's media coordinators want you to know that someone hacked @BrettFavre4 on Sunday night. The account prior to March 5 was legitimately Brett Favre. Everything since March 5 is the work of the hacker. Full statement - JUMP!
An in-progress, greatest Internet troll of all-time nominee, was ended abruptly last night. You see, someone actually talked Twitter into verifying the @BrettFavre4 account. The legitimized it to us, fellow bloggers and even Randy Moss who exchanged tweets with the fake Brett last night. Even mainstream outlets fell for it. Something said in the Moss tweets eventually brought down the fake account. It was just too damn good to be true. JUMP!
The Rock has a new place to call home in Miami. He picked up the former home of Miami Dolphins tackle Vernon Carey for a cool $3.45 million. Not bad for a six-bedroom, six-bath joint with a resort-style pool and a home theater room with a ticket booth. That's right people! A ticket booth! You gotta have that ticket booth in your pad, yo! Here's a look inside The Rock's new digs, if you smell what we're cookin'. JUMP!
So the Jon guy who served Peyton Manning at the Angus Barn in Raleigh and then uploaded it to the Internet has been fired. You might remember yesterday where we figured out that Peyton left Jon a 45% tip. Well, the lady who runs the fine dining restaurant was not happy at Jon putting the photo on the Internet. Yep, she fired him. JUMP!
