While pregnant women are posing in Steelers bodypaint, there is Jim Fassel preparing his UFL Las Vegas Locomotives team for its 3rd straight league championship game tomorrow night. Seriously. Many expect this will be the last you'll ever hear of the UFL. Only four teams remain in the league and two have to play for the title. Virginia gets the pleasure of making the trip to Vegas. In other news, NFL Films will be unleashing this catalog. Let's get rolling!
Notre Dame is a bully -- not so much on the football field like they once were, but definitely in the legal arena. The university is forcing a small school in Kansas that was leveled by a tornado and only reopened this year to change their Fighting Irish logo. Apparently, people were confusing the high school with the university... or something. This leads us to believe the Chapman High School football team really sucks, too.
Chicago Bears receiver Devin Hester got slapped in the back of his head in a casino in suburban Chicago by a gentleman named Dan Rago. The odd thing about the situation is Rago is seemingly a Chicago sports fan, which made us wonder, why would Rago slap a dude who scored two touchdowns against the Vikings this past Sunday? We break down the possibilities for you. Check 'em and tell us if you agree!
Well, if you are a Raiders fan & worried about Carson Palmer being in playing shape, we're here to show you that homeboy hasn't just been slamming beers & not working out. The jaw structure is looking firm, unlike his final days with the Bengals. Maybe it's the camera angle. Anyway, the Bengals set themselves up to destroy NFL drafts for the next couple years. If you are a doper, drunk or maniac, be ready. The Bungwads have some extra powder. (via @Vavalium)
Kate Upton is 19. Keep reminding yourself of that. 19. Like, born in 1992. Anyway, Kate and a friend, fellow model Lizzy Glynn, took a stretched Hummer to MetLife for last night's Dolphins-Jets game. Look, there is plenty of sh$% in life that's unfair and not being in that Hummer is one of the biggest kick in the balls we've had to endure. Of course nothing major happened in the Hummer. Just two models rolling around NYC and through the Lincoln Tunnel. JUMP!
This just came down on Twitter like 40 minutes ago from Vikings WR Bernard Berrian: That nasty moment when you thought you grabbed enough t.p. and brown spots magically appear on your fingers. Lmao!! A deuce is about all Berrian's hands have been on this year, magically coming down with only 7 catches for 91 yards in '11. Dude's just having fun on Twitter, you say? You think 7th place in an 8-man fantasy league is a joke? We're not laughing. (@B_Twice)
As you might know by know, Busted Coverage spent a few weeks on the road this fall attending some of the biggest college football games with Quinn the AXE mannequin and our cohorts at COED Magazine. We made it to four ESPN GameDay stops and knocked off dozens of bucket list items. There were pictures with Erin Andrews, multiple beers at the best college bars & of course we met a few celebrities including Desmond Howard who answered 5 Questions.
We received correspondence overnight from Oregon students about a sign via @NolanKane that dominated at ASU-Oregon this past Saturday night. Good work, boys. Have anything good for the Song Girls and USC in November? In other news this morning, we learned that there is now a cemetery in Bellevue, Washington dedicated to golfers. Want to be buried in a bunker, covered in sand and cigarette butts? Some guy has a business plan & needs dead people. Let's get rolling!
This tweet just came down from LSU QB Jordan Jefferson: Finally got all my shoes back. Now my shoe game is back to being
#outrageous hahahahaha. You might remember that cops confiscated his shoe collection after allegedly kicking some guy's face in outside a Baton Rouge bar. Things have finally cooled down, Jefferson is back on the football team and Jefferson can go back to studying Thomas Jefferson & his major - sports administration. (@JJefferson9)
We know a Delaware gambler who's going to kick back and pound some brews during Monday Night Football. Some genius finally destroyed The Man and took $100,000 from the Delaware lottery via a 15-team parlay, becoming the first human to accomplish the feat since the state introduced sports gambling in 2009. Homeboy hasn't stepped forward to claim his prize, but we can confirm that it IS NOT Stu Feiner of late 80s, early 90s fame. Details - JUMP!
What are Tony Romo haters talking about at the water cooler this morning? Tony Romo's Hail Mary attempt at the end of yesterday's game in Foxboro. Yes, the Cowboys lost again and fans needed to unload on someone. Romo's out of bounds Hail Mary attempt sent them into full NSFW mode. The hatred wasn't as extreme as post-Lions game, but it's still worth your time. Special emphasis on white guy writing that Tony is a bitch ass nigga. JUMP!
What a great week in the NFL, eh boys? Couldn't ask for more than a 'break your hand punching a wall' intensity game in Detroit. Think that Thanksgiving Day 12:30 kickoff against Green Bay is going to be any good? Anyway, Stafford went to Ford Field looking very October. Then he went home 5-1. It was a horrible weekend for Michigan. UM is undefeated no more, the Tigers went home to the D.R. & Mitch Albom's thesaurus isn't horny. Dude is spent. Another week. Let's get rolling.
We're back in the Busted Coverage office this week for Week 7 of the college football season and ESPN GameDay's stop in Eugene for Oregon vs. Arizona State. The Ducks cheerleading team has never looked better with the lights turned out. Corso is hopped up on a 5-Hour and Herbstreit's frosted tips are shining. It's time to get this mess started yet again. Expect lots of smoking weed signs. JUMP!
Ahhh, so that's how Chargers superfan Pablo Hernandez was able to afford great seats at Jack Murphy and the gas in that giant Ford Excursion. California State Police say they made a traffic stop on Pablo this week and happened to bring a drug dog in for a further inspection. Oh, what do we have here, Pablo? A little nose candy? Like 42 pounds of it? C'mon, homeboy, you can't be driving around Southern California and figure the cops won't stop you for an autograph. JUMP!
We checked, no Dallas entry in the Lingerie Football League so Angela Rypien doesn't have to worry about a brawl with Lone Star state chicks over this shirt she was wearing the other night during practice. Ms. Rypien is on a heater after Yahoo.com yesterday featured her. Guess who was out in front of the Rypien/Mark Rypien story way back in April? Of course we were. The LFL finally has a public face and she's sorta the Ochocinco of the league. It's great. JUMP!
There's been a slight buzz in the college football world about Ryan Leaf coming out of the woodwork via the release of 596 Switch, a book that will be released tomorrow by the epic NFL bust that chronicles his years at Washington State. Ironically, Leaf is making it Ryan Leaf Weekend in Pullman while Suck For Luck Chairman of the Board, Andrew Luck rolls in with Stanford. Yes, that RV will be going wherever Ryan Leaf peddles this book. Tour details - JUMP!
