Legend has it that Harry's Banana Farm in Lake Worth, Florida got its name after a kid's ball club wouldn't take money from a bar. So Harry's Open Door was changed to it's current incarnation. Once named one of America's sleaziest bars by Penthouse, as of a few years ago customers were able to get a 60-ounce draft for $6. The place opens for boozers at 7 a.m. and serves your normal bar food. Harry's is also known for its catchy billboards. JUMP!
What the f*ck is going on with the sports world? Are we running out of filler for the 24-hour news cycle? Dropping espionage and _____-gate makes us feel like a Walter Cronkite hologram will show up after a commercial & kick Neil Everett's ass. Jesus! Can't we get a fake Steve Phillips press conference about Albert Pujols being homerless? In NHL news, the Rangers force a Game 7 while Gary Bettman battles the shits over the Blackhawks being eliminated. Let's get rolling!
Nope, Deion's kids aren't doing their homework. They're filling out police reports for a domestic violence incident that took place earlier today between Prime Time and his soon-to-be ex-wife Pilar. Blah, blah, blah. Yes, we take domestic violence seriously, but can't we at least use this post to ask you guys who makes those sweet chairs? Is it too much to ask? Cup holders built into the chair? Gotta be kidding me. Those are sweet. JUMP!
A couple years ago we had a post on 8 cheerleading tryout disasters that should never be repeated. The bad part is that women didn't listen to our advice and now BC is up to 15 cheerleading tryout disasters. It's your money, ladies. Don't blame us when you drop $100 on a tryout and waste a Saturday afternoon only to be rejected because you're giant ass can't move or you're pregnant. Nothing is more challenging at a tryout than a fetus in your belly. Just sayin'. JUMP!
Ho-hum. Dammit, how cool would it be to go back to your 22-24-year-old days and live life like Gronk and Team Jizz Blaster? From one city to the next. Tampa to Aruba, to Spring Break, to Boston, to the Playboy Mansion, back to Boston and then to Miami. That's in like 5 1/2 weeks. Seriously, if ESPN was to ever get in the 'reality' business, the time is now. Team Jizz Blaster on ESPN2 just going from city to city making bachelorette parties that much better. JUMP!
DJ Steve Porter has made some great mixes for ESPN (like the Randy Moss' "One Clap" video) and this one is no different. DJ Steve Porter just came out with one for the 2012 NFL Draft and it did not disappoint. The draft this year starts this Thursday and it looks like the first pick is already locked up with the Indianapolis Colts picking Andrew Luck to replace Peyton Manning. JUMP!
The Mississippi State Bulldogs will only play on 60 yards of field for their 2012 spring game because they decided it was more important to build a stage for a band to perform on. MSU decided to give up 40 yards of field space for a country music band named Sugarland to play on. Dan Mullen doesn't have much to work with to display his team's ability for his spring game. Grind for your state MSU! HT @stricklinMSU JUMP!
Manning Way is a street in Oxford, Mississippi that was named after the Ole Miss Rebel quarterback Archie Manning. The speed limit used to be 18 mph in honor of Archie's number. Well now that there is a new Manning and former rebel and current New York Giants quarterback winning Superbowls, the speed limit has been changed to Eli Manning's number 10. I doubt Ole Miss fans will feel too bad about going 8 mph slower than usual. HT CFBSection JUMP!
Via: Nebraska Husker football player Alfonzo Dennard was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a Lincoln police officer early Saturday. Lincoln police said Dennard, 22, was fighting with another man outside a bar near 14th and O Streets about 2:15 a.m. When officers attempted to intervene, Dennard allegedly pushed and then punched one officer in the face. Homeboy was ranked by CBS as the 56th best player in the NFL draft. Ooops.
Relax, it's not Jack Nicklaus. Just an old codger hanging with the Gunslinger this morning before a golf tournament. It seems Favre is legitimately keeping busy during retirement. There was the gig as team mom for the So. Miss baseball team and now Friday golf outings. Just think of how little this guy spends per week. Golf in Mississippi costs as much as a vodka-tonic in NYC. $22 max for dinner at the Italian joint in town. Dammit, this guy has the life. (via @jholifield1402)
Little late on this one only because most people don't really care about Greg Schiano or the house he's trying to sell in New Jersey since he'll be spending the next 3-5 years in Tampa. Is there a more uninteresting NFL hire like Schiano in the last 5 years besides Dick Jauron in Buffalo? Ok, Romeo Crennel needs to be in the same breath. Anyway, Schiano is selling his N.J. dump but let's all focus on Greg's couch collection. JUMP!
Our old friend Alexis, the Florida Panthers ice dancer profiled in March, is back with what is about to help her rise from the 300 follower level on Twitter. 371 this morning to be exact. How is that possible, you morons? You'll follow idiots like Demi Moore, meanwhile @AlexisDAugusto is dropping Jets jersey underboob. Get your asses in gear and give Alexis a follow. (Guessing we'll get more underboob when that 1k mark is surpassed.) JUMP!
Remember how everyone was laughing at Troy Aikman last year when he listed his Dallas mansion for $24,000,000? "Ridiculous asking price. He's nuts. Never going to sell that place." Blah, blah, blah. Guess who's now selling his house for $14,000,000 and the adjacent .90 acres of land for $11,500,000? That's right, Aikman. According to Dallas real estate expert Candy Evans, someone is interested in that .90 acres. Who's laughing now, punks? JUMP!
Got this message from ESPN sideline reporter Jenn Brown earlier this evening: @bustedcoverage Used my tomato knife today to make a salad...thanks guys!! :) Most of you should remember how our sleuths figured out in the fall that Brown was sportin' a giant rock on her finger. One thing led to another and we splurged on a $25 tomato knife from the registry. Jenn got married at the beginning of the month. Now she's making salads. Yes, we're the best, ladies.
Our old friend and Denver radio host Peter Burns was up to his old shenanigans this morning via his sports-talk show where he invited 'Jim In SoCal' (a Jim Rome impersonator you must hear) on to break down the Broncos schedule. Of course hilarity ensued as listeners went nuts actually believing Jim Rome thought Peyton Manning would go 2-14. This has to be the best Rome impersonator on the radio circuit. Rack 'em. (Listen to Fake Jim Rome destroy Denver radio - HERE)
We get marketing emails from Team Playboy at least a couple times per month to give us the heads up on who's in the next issue. Yesterday was one of those days. Would BC be interested in posting about supermodel May Andersen getting naked for the May issue? Told the marketing rep there wasn't a sports-angle but we'd figure out something. Enter Steelers OL Marcus Gilbert. Pretty sure he got the May issue last night. JUMP!
Where is Daryll 'Moose' Johnston moving? No idea, but his Dallas mansion hit the market this week and it is a fairly expensive Dallas pad. In other words, you'll be just looking at this one. We're talking about 8,000 sq. ft. of finished house, a pool, a theater and the finest touches you can put into a Dallas house. What caught our eye? The master. It has his and hers baths. This is like the greatest idea in housing history. His bath? Her bath? SOLD! JUMP!
You might remember that Doug Flutie spent four seasons as the QB of the San Diego Chargers. Those weren't exactly memorable years for Doug as he went 8-14 and had his final NFL start in 2004. Flash-forward eight years and another Flutie is hoping to erase the bad memories in southern California. Alexa Flutie is returning to her one-time home where she participated over the weekend to become a Chargers Girl. Yep, left the Patriots for a shot at stardom. JUMP!
This is not some sort of joke. Seriously, the University of Alabama is now making arrangements to get a new BCS trophy after the school's 2012 trophy shattered into pieces Saturday in a freak accident. No, not kidding. Shattered beyond recognition. It's a $30,000 loss and now some sculptor in Ireland has to make a new one. Again, not kidding. JUMP!
