And here we were all set for the Westboro Church, God Hates Fags, crew to unveil their signs at Joe Paterno's funeral today. The Internet will have to wait, according to Fred Phelps Jr. "Everybody waiting for WBC. Think Thursday. Think public memorial service." Hmm, strange choice, but it seems the GHFers are going for the bigger audience over Paterno's actual funeral. Big question at our office is if they'll have a special, limited edition Jerry Sandusky sign. Stay tuned.
We're told by @JJMandros that this is from last night's Desert Mountain vs. Chaparral (Arizona) basketball game where DM beat its rival and rush the court for an impromptu #Tebowing. First rush the court #Tebowing in high school basketball history? Seems to be unless one of you sends in proof of another: email@example.com. And here we figured the craze would die out when Baby Jesus went back to building hospitals in the Phillippines. Nope.
Via: Syracuse University backup quarterback Terrel Hunt was taken into custody Tuesday after police say he stole an item from the Hollister store at Carousel Mall. Police say Hunt took a $44 bottle of Breakline fragrance from the store, concealing it in a shopping bag before exiting. Seems like a logical reason to risk your scholarship. What this tells us is that the booster program at Syracuse really sucks. Can't call a booster for a $44 fragrance? Enjoy your 6-6 seasons, boys.
They're even using Tebowing snow sculptures on the slopes to get some damn snow. Smart move, but does Mother Nature really care about some option-read QB from the Broncos? If you care & are a degenerate: the Pro Bowl OVER/UNDER is up to 73. In Prince Fielder news, SI's Andy Gray unearthed this gem of the Tigers new $200mm man as a chubby kid throwing the ball with Alan Trammell. Dude will make $65,000 every single day for next 9 years. Let's get rolling!
Is it distasteful for someone to take a photo of the Joe Paterno casket today before the viewing took place at the Penn State campus spiritual center? One last collector's photo? Well, NBC10 Philly reporter LuAnn Cahn did her best to live tweet today's viewing. Is this sad? Cahn just doing her job? Seems pretty tacky to us, but who are we to tell LuAnn Cahn what dead person viewing she can tweet about. JUMP!
As you'd expect, Super Bowl tickets are pretty expensive, despite a matchup no one not on the east coast gives two craps about. The average price to see the New York Giants play the New England Patriots is upwards of $4,000 on tickets that have a face value of $800 to $1,200. Oh, and if you want a suite, well... you better have money to burn. Suites are going for more than $500,000. We've got all the idiotic numbers for you here. Check it.
Is there a chick on this planet that can possibly resist the urge of The Gronkowski? The spike. The chiseled jaw line. The 2% body fat. The abs. The gun shows. The NFL tight end records. The Ivan Drago hair. In a matter of five months, Rob Gronkowski has gone from an unknown, to a chick's dream come true. We've searched out these ladies and their Internet shrapnel. These photos represent trophy deer moments to these ladies. JUMP!
Would an eBay member (mollyswimmom) with top-rated seller status post fraudulent Joe Paterno memorial service tickets on the auction site? Nope. Would jokers highjack the auction to the point where it would need to be yanked by eBay? Yes. We know tickets to Thursday's public service at the Bryce Jordan Center are in huge demand. $100k for two, demand? Doubtful. Jump!
Some douche named @PaulJacob19 sent this shot - first to TMZ - to damn near everyone he could think of on Twitter late last week. Listen, at this point, someone send us a shot of Gronk with chicks and NOT grizzed up. Just look at this machine pitching a tent at some red cup pool party. As for BC today, we took the red eye out of Vegas and are now back to the HQ. As for big names we rubbed elbows with over the weekend, Shane Victorino & Nina Hartley. Let's get rolling!
If people didn't know it before -- and let's face it, they should -- they know it now. ESPN personality Skip Bayless is a douchebag. Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs told America just that, live on ESPN's First Take today. While Bayless was doing his usual loud-talking, I'm-never-wrong act and needling Suggs about his team's loss to the New England Patriots, Suggs told Bayless not to be a douchebag. Here's the video.
Rapper and Queens native 50 Cent is rolling in it today. And by it, we mean $500,000. No he didn't make a new sub-par rap album (at least that we're aware of) or star in another crappy movie where he pretty much plays himself. No, 50 threw down a wager on the New York Giants in the NFC Championship game and came out on the winning end. Of course, he did the logical, classy thing by bragging about it on Twitter afterward. Check it!
Imagine Ravens' fan sitting at work today playing that final drive over in his head 25-30 times. All Lee Evans has to do is hold the ball. All Billy Cundiff needs to do is hit the chip shot to send the game to overtime. Over and over in his head. But you guys need something to get over the pain. Something to change your focus. Something to forget Billy Cundiff's insane miss. We have the perfect remedy. New Kate Upton Beach Bunny bikini photos. Gentlemen, you need this. JUMP!

Yes, we're late. Still out here in Vegas soaking in AFC/NFC Championship weekend. Sat at Red Rock Casino as Billy shanked that game-tying field goal. The sportsbook, standing-room only, went berserk as Patriots moneyline guy cashed his winner. We had the Pats -7 (loser), Giants +2, the Giants-49ers OVER (loser) & Giants to score first (loser). Thankfully enough money was on the Giants to break even but enjoy one helluva day at the sportsbook. Let's get rolling!
Jay Glazer explained to us how the New York Giants handwarmer bags were filled with Shamwows to keep their hands warm in these cold conditions against the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC Championship. The NFC showed up the AFC today where they brought Kristin Chenoweth who killed the National Anthem. Vernon Davis also got on top of the camera stand for a celebration. JUMP!
Do you know what I wouldn't do if I were a quarterback in the AFC Championship? Talk shit to Ray Lewis' face. The guy allegedly stabbed a guy in a club and is known as being one of the most ferocious players in the game. Well that is exactly what Tom Brady did after he picked up a first down when the New England Patriots took on the Baltimore Ravens. Video after the JUMP!
Do you know who you shouldn't pick to sing the National Anthem? Steven Tyler in a terrible Patriots sequin shirt. I'm surprised the Foxboro crowd didn't boo him out of the stadium. Joe Flacco had the worst facial hair possible in the AFC Championship between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. Flacco also looked like he was going to pass out in the pre-game huddle. Check it out after the JUMP!
Joe Paterno's life came to an end this morning at a State College hospital after his brief fight with lung cancer came to an end. His son, Jay, tweeted, A special thanks to the Hospital staff. They helped us all through the past few days. Can not begin to express our gratitude. Our family thanks Penn Staters, students & all people for prayers & support for my Dad. He felt your support in his fight. Of course Penn State is responding to the news with sadness and reflection. JUMP!
Vernon Davis is already planning his victory party directly after the NFC Championship Game. Sounds pretty cocky to me but I didn't catch the game winning pass in my last game against the New Orleans Saints. The San Francisco 49ers host the New York Giants this Sunday. Will this be shittiest party ever or one that sends them to the Superbowl? Check out the invite instructions and the full picture after the JUMP!
