Did you buy a house in 2006 at the top of the housing bubble? You still living in that house? You paying on a house that's $3mm underwater? Would you blame Santana Moss if he quit paying on his house near Ft. Lauderdale? Not us. Dude has to be careful with his cash. Losing that house doesn't mean much. But, it's another thing that the IRS wants money Moss seems to owe them. A double whammy for a dude who got a $5mm signing bonus last summer. JUMP!
Yep, the turdballs from God Hates Fags / Westboro church, kept their word and protested this afternoon outside the Joe Paterno memorial that is starting right now. Says Margie Phelps: Gettin' it done!
#JoePaInHell Many, MANY guilty parties on the ground today,responsible for #PennRape mess. #Mourn4Sin. And added: Is @ESPN_Colin one of the lying media who covers for raping coaches? Sports broadcasters get rich while they cover great sin. React accordingly.
We didn't really expect to hear this week that Wes Welker would get engaged to his Hooters bikini girlfriend Anna Burns this week. The Boston Herald says Welker popped the question, one thing led to another and Ms. Burns will soon marry into the NFL money motherlode. It's believed that the two might have been engaged around Christmas but were able to keep it quiet. Timing doesn't matter. Cat is out of the bag. So you want to see more of Burns, right? JUMP!
And here you wife/girlfriend thought this would be a weekend without football. Guys, we have the Lingerie Football League playoffs this Saturday from Citizens Bank Business Arena in Ontario, California. The winners move on to Las Vegas for the Lingerie Bowl on Super Bowl Sunday. Philly has the LFL's best offense (4 gms: 206 pts) while only giving up 30, making them the odds-on favorite to redeem themselves after last year's Lingerie Bowl loss. JUMP!
Yes, we continue to be intrigued by soft drink/beer displays. Why? Because this will be the next great competition on the Food Network. Contestants will be given 2 hours to build kick ass beer displays. It's coming. Baby Jesus won't be playing at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Instead, you'll get a Tony Romo-Tiger Woods pairing. And how about this lede from the Free Press: Miguel Cabrera said he was moving back to third base to make room for Prince Fielder. Let's get rolling!
Look closely. Those are tiny needles in Jerry Glanville's arm today at Senior Bowl practice in Mobile. What is the former NFL coach doing watching potential NFL draft picks? He works for the United Football League and needs to be ready to pick up the scraps in late April. Why is he having needles stuck into his arm at a football stadium? Because he knows it'll get him exposure? Missed his treatment this morning? JUMP!
NFL cheerleaders make somewhere between $50-$75 per game. No pay for practice. So, as you can imagine, a paid trip to Hawaii for the 2012 Pro Bowl is a decent reward for a cheerleaders hard work. What's a week in Hawaii cost these days? $6,000? Airfare alone from Baltimore runs around $1,000. And just think, these ladies get to jersey chase this week with the possibility of landing an NFL meal ticket. Total score for these chicks. JUMP!
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!
