The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators may not have much of a sense of humor, but we do. That's why we find Occupy Herbstreit somewhat hilarious. The movement, if you can call it that, is based around a blog and features a rogue college football fan holding up ironic signs that play off the Occupy Wall Street themes only are about college football. The movement is both small and young, but we've grabbed the best from Occupy Herbstreit. Check it!
You think Mark Rypien really enjoys men checking out his daughter's rack and ass while she plays tackle football? Would you if she were your daughter? But he takes it because Angela continues to chase her dream of a perfect 4-0 season and Lingerie Football League championship. Would he get in a LFL arena brawl over comments? "What good’s that gonna do? And if I did whoop his a** in the parking lot, what good’s that gonna do? I’ll get a lawsuit against me.” (via Lost Lettermen)
There isn't a sluttier holiday than Halloween for women who'll go all year just waiting for that one night to slut it up just so they have something cool to post on Facebook. Being that we're a sports-themed site, it's our job to show ladies that there are even more options to raise your game in 2011. Bodypaint is the new black. Are you single? You won't be after going as Calvin Johnson jersey chick to some Detroit bar. Are you a single lesbian? You won't be after going as Romo. JUMP!
You know it has to suck for Tom Brady to not be able to take his boy into the backyard and smash two-hoppers while Ben Brady plays shortstop. The logical move is to get a giant 45-acre spread where Gisele can plant some flowers and frolic in the sweet grass. Hence, the attempted sale - yet again - of Brades Beacon St. penthouse. Being the nice guy that Tom is, he's lowering the asking price $400,000 and asking $10.5mm. Step up, Patriots superfan. JUMP!
Thanks to Facebook we can put a sports angle on this story that's been driving us crazy all morning. You see, Joseph Bartorillo is a Steelers fan. He also must of hated his female coworkers at Proctor & Gamble in NE Pennsylvania. One thing led to another - over 20 months - and Joe was injecting his semen into yogurt cups eventually eaten by those female coworkers. Yeah, the story of how this all went down is quite disturbing. Full details - JUMP!
You might remember our report last month on how Todd Blackledge's prized Mercedes two-door was on eBay and some lucky bidder was about to own the NFL legend's first big rookie purchase. We're happy to report that the 500-Series SEC fetched $5,250 after a ferocious 29 bid outburst from car freaks. After being part of Todd's life for 27 years, this beauty will likely be driven by some old Jew in Fort Lauderdale. Photos and Todd's emotional letter about the car - JUMP!
The blogs that dork out on all things 'football' have been gagging over the news that Tim Tebow ended Week 5 with a better Total QBR ranking than Aaron Rodgers in ESPN's index. It's just the kind of emotional reaction ESPN was hoping you morons would give them. Thanks for justifying some stupid QB rating system. Today we learn that even Aaron Rodgers thinks these rankings are horse#$%. "I played a full game," Rodgers tells ESPN 540. JUMP!
Sometimes it just seems like the officials have it out for your team and maybe they do, but we've never seen anything quite this blatant, especially at such a high level. We've got video of a referee pushing the ball forward after it was spotted to, seemingly, try to give Wake Forest a first down in their game against Florida State. Wake Forest would win 35-30. Home cooking? You be the judge.
Well, well, well the day finally arrived when Steve Spurrier and the University of South Carolina had enough of Stephen Garcia. (The guess is that we'll be hearing about an arrest or worse in coming days.) An Oklahoma football reporter's tweet about a failed urine test sent the Internet into a frenzy this afternoon. Um, like we told you guys Garcia was pounding brews a couple weeks ago. Dayglow party, anyone? Send your Stephen Garcia party memories: email@example.com
Via our Internet sources, the Green Bay Packers ticket office this week sent out notices to fans who are on the team's season ticket waiting list. One guy (@MikeJMacco) reports that his spot at 26,210 is after joining the wait when he was 15 years old. The form is almost anti-climatic. Sorta like, 'What are you waiting around for?' The Packers waiting list is now officially bigger than the Sunday circulation of the city's newspaper. At least 88, 595 are on it. JUMP!
Maybe you remember Cris Carter dissing Calvin Johnson back in August. Last night was Megatron's official coming out party and he didn't disappoint, grabbing 5 balls for 130 yards & 1 TD. The performance from the Lions was so great that Mitch Albom could only start sentences this morning with one word, 'Change.' Now 5-0, the Lions get San Fran and Atlanta at Ford Field in consecutive weeks before a roadie to Denver. Tix still available.
Broncos QB Brady Quinn got passed over Tim Tebow in yesterday's loss to San Diego. Meanwhile, his girlfriend, gymnast Alicia Sacramone tore her Achilles while training in Japan. The couple may be cursed, but they're still in love, dammit! And why not? She's gorgeous & he has no reason to stay in Denver now that the Jesus Boy era has begun. We salute your level of commitment Brady Quinn and we'll do it with a gallery of your hot girlfriend. Check it!
Kevin Ridley, a photojournalist for WCNC in Charlotte, N.C., took this shot during yesterday's Saints-Panthers game. Upon first glance we were drawn in by the Halloween costume, but quickly realized this was a 'situation.' It appears that dad has hijacked his daughter from a nice day at home where Lucy would be playing with dolls. Instead she's creeped out by daddy's fascination with a 1-4 rookie. It's ok, we're told police have investigated & it's not an abduction. (via @kjridley)
Busted Coverage has been to three ESPN GameDay live shows this season. And we've been behind the gates for all three. Yes, we've touched Erin Andrews. Shirt on shirt contact. Photos have been taken. There has been chitchat exchanged. In other words, she likes us. We're not idiots like Boomer Sooner fan at this weekend's Red River Shootout (yes, it was straight up murder). Toolbag @ryandavidreaves & EA went at it yesterday over an incident in Dallas. JUMP!
Saturday at Tennessee vs. Georgia was the last official trip Busted Coverage has planned this fall. There might be a last-minute, game-time decision type trip but not likely. So this was the last hurrah to a season of tailgating, debauchery and ladies in sundress/riding boot combos. What did we learn in 2011? BC keeps getting older and SEC girls stay the same age. It's ridiculous. What else? A 'Now Accepting Volunteers' shirt attracts the chicks. JUMP!
For those of you forced yesterday to watch the Jets get manhandled by the Patriots and without the super-awesome NFL Red Zone channel, there was this incident in the NFL. It was the resurrection of Tim Tebow. He's back. He's trending on Twitter. Will He start next week? Will John Fox be forced to start Him? Never before in the history of this league has a third-string QB caused this much commotion. After the jump, the NSFW hate speech from Week 5. JUMP!
