Scott Van Pelt referenced something during his show today that shocked us, didn't sound right and then the cable went out. Did he actually say something about his "wife?" One thing led to another and a Scott Van Pelt wedding registry was on our desktop. It seems the Internet's hero managed to get married in October without a peep from us bloggers. How is that even possible? Not sure, but we can now look at what Scott and Stephanie didn't get for wedding gifts. JUMP!
Um, that ESPN Tebow Hour that went down today didn't exactly go over well with the unemployed and second-shifters who happened to be watching. The anger on Twitter centered on the need for ESPN to "suck tha d*ck" of Tebow more than they already do on an hourly basis. The Twitter grammar was bad, the anger was real and regular folks unloaded on yet more Tebow lust from the WWL. Kudos to those tweets that used 140 characters to catch our attention. JUMP!
Via the F.B.I. Knoxville bureau: Today, the Knoxville Division of the FBI launched an electronic billboard campaign seeking the public’s assistance to help identify a serial bank robber active in East Tennessee. The individual is suspected of robbing of at least three banks in Tennessee. He is possibly in his 30s and has been wearing a baseball cap during each of the robberies. We're thinking former college footballer, possibly o-lineman. Nail him: firstname.lastname@example.org
Houston-based chick @MDRMissy spent most of Tuesday night tweeting this cloud photo to the major media outlets in the Magnolia City, claiming this is proof that God wants the Texans to beat the Ravens. Yes, that cloud pattern is proof. If Tebow can have halos over Mile High, Missy can have her Texans logo in the sky. It's only fair. The more we look at the cloud - and drink - the more convinced we are that Missy is onto something here. Logical move is $1k and the points.
You know what we love about the Tebow phenomenon? This story has brought Americans from many different walks of life together for football, religion & the race to steal His virginity. As we've said since 2008: Men want to be him, women want to do him. What has happened over the last 10 weeks or so is that pornstars are starting to take notice of Baby Jesus and his virginity. The thought is driving them crazy. Riley Steele & Nikki Benz can barely contain their excitement. JUMP!
Fox NFL analyst and former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan is ditching his posh Los Angeles pad and he stands to make a tidy profit. After purchasing the Brentwood home for $5 million in 2009, Strahan will clear a little under $2 million profit if he gets what he's asking. Not bad for a couple years of doing nothing. Presumably, it will allow him and Eddie Murphy's ex to move into an ever more splendid joint. JUMP!
Why do we love Alabama's Trent Richardson and would probably put our franchise on his shoulders? Because this guy is always hustlin', doing his best to grind out a living, providing for his two little girls & doing it all on a college football paycheck. This weekend in N.O.? Hustlin' the Harrah's casino craps tables. Monday? Busting tackles on his way to another BCS ring. Probably doubled down his dinner money to buy his babies new shoes. JUMP!
Just making our normal rounds this morning and was shocked at what Roger Clemens is up to these days instead of dodging government perjury lawyers. Would you ever guess that Rocket is good enough friends with Snoop D-O-double G that he has dinner with the former pimp? Of course it makes sense to have dinner with Toby Keith. From what we have learned, Snoop has infiltrated white America as a black football coach. That's right, celebs want him coaching their sons. JUMP!
Letterman's Top 10 list last night included these little-known facts about Baby Jesus: 8. For breakfast has Icy Hot on toast, 6. Currently ninth on the Kim Kardashian athlete waiting list and 4. One time, lost his temper and said, "Darn It." What game should you be taking the underdog this weekend? 49ers +3.5. 87% of the Vegas money is on road favorite N.O. In other news, The Huntsville Times printed 12-hour old BCS tweets in yesterday's newspaper. Let's get rolling!
Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos dispatched the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime on Sunday. It was a huge win for the Broncos and it's now a huge story pretty much everywhere, even in Taiwan. For some reason, the Taiwanese people like to tell stories through animated videos that make little to no sense... at least to us. We've got the latest and they're focusing on Tebow's big win, which apparently happened through divine intervention and really pissed off atheists. Check it!
Never heard of @HeavenKODDiva? She'll be getting some run this afternoon as the Miami-based stripper at King of Diamonds who uploaded this photo 5-6 hours ago of herself and a certain Eagles WR at what we'd assume is King of Diamonds. Molly's Twitter profile says that she's "ONE OF KING OF DIAMONDS POLE RYDER." Kudos to the WR for giving us material to get over this BCS snoozer. Who's the lucky guy? He went to Cal. JUMP!
Yes, we'll get off this Jeremy Shelley-Blair McElroy story fairly soon. But how many times do we have to cut through the college football analysis sh*t on ESPN? We broke down the 2012 BCS in a single post yesterday - Shelley. Dude went out, kicked five field goals & won the national championship for Bama. His girlfriend? Greg McElroy's sister who's a frosh at Bama & started dating Shelley while still in high school last year. Kudos to these lovebirds. (@BlairMcElroy)
Jordan Jefferson was 11-for-17 and 53 yards through the air. He added the one interception and 15 yards rushing on 14 carries. Impressive. Of course it didn't take long for the hate to get ramped up. Was it just the racist contingent going nuts? Nope. Even black guy was dropping 'nigga' and 'f-bombs' on Jefferson, who even went to the drastic measure of deleting his Twitter account. Of course our editors have aggregated the best of the Jefferson hate speech. JUMP!
Yes, it's true that you could just go the Newseum and look at all the front pages from Alabama's 2012 BCS championship, but good luck finding those pages tomorrow when Newseum saves over the old files. Digress. Anyway, big night for Alabama newspapers and 60pt fonts. Who won this year's battle of the fish wraps? We're taking the Tuscaloosa News. Simple, elegant, pointed and a great addition to the office space. In Alabama, these images will live on forever. JUMP!
Bama fan, @alastormspotter, had this to report just after midnight: Line outside of Academy Sports waiting for National Championship gear. We're pretty sure this is Birmingham. Yes, we also see kids in that photo. Look, let's get real about the Tuesday after a BCS victory in Alabama. The only kids showing up to school are the nerds and Auburn fans. Bama kids are busy Black Friday-ing their BCS gear. Have a BCS image we need to see? email@example.com
Of course Seahawks fan on the field and that close to Nick Saban is one of the great mysteries in life. If anyone has intel on who, how and why Seahawks fan was in the Gatorade scrum, we'd like to hear. firstname.lastname@example.org ...What more can be said about the BCS? Of course it would be great to see Bama's D against Oklahoma St. or Oregon. Playoff system is the only logical remedy to this disaster of a game. LSU gets across the 50 once? Inexcusable. Let's get rolling!
