Our friend Darren Rovell (he actually follows us so f-off) this afternoon had this to say about an NCAA '12 screencap that crossed his desk: Horribly unfortunate caption in NCAA '12 for Penn State-OSU game. Oh, come one now, it's just a computer pumping out the headlines. Or is it? Sandusky? Is that you, you queer child molester? You conspiring with Spanier and Schultz to disgrace NCAA '12 with this disgusting prose? It just won't end. Those poor kids! (@darrenrovell)
A simple tweet went out last night from Erin Pageviews to the infamous SI swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen. Did EA just break news on her Twitter account about the future of her career? Sure looks that way to us. The world of sideline reporters just got a tad bit more interesting. (Kudos to our friend Mike for holding that umbrella at the Michigan GameDay stop.) JUMP!
Wait? What? Gary Pinkel drinks? Listen, we used to cover Gary back in the late 1990s and if there was ever a coach we never thought would end up with a police mugshot, it would be Missouri head coach Pinkel. But, the Missouri media is all over his DUI last night. A Boone County sheriff's deputy stopped Pinkel's car on Keene Street in Columbia around 10 p.m. Wednesday for "lane and signal violations." We won't believe he was drunk until the dash-cam video.
Pittsburgh resident Bill Hart, @bhart62, last night uploaded this pic from his local grocery store where customers are constantly reminded why their franchise is great. Can't even pick up Mrs. T's Pierogies without having a Terrible Towel in your face. In other news, the dude who wrote 'Itsy Bitsy' Bikini has died. You ladies think we're all perverts today? These assholes were writing bikini tunes in the 50s. Might be time for a remix. Timbaland available? Let's get rolling!
You'd never hear an ESPN employee ripping a fellow ESPNer on an ESPN property - ever. So guess what happened this week when Aaron Rodgers sat down for his radio show on 540 ESPN AM in Milwaukee? Rodgers opened up on his feelings towards a certain First Take blowhard (Skip Bayless) who entertains the unemployed & second-shifters. Rodgers won't even say his name. Won't even give him the satisfaction. Won't even go on First Take like Spice Bosh. JUMP!
Houston Texans TE James Casey stopped at the Stafford, Texas Hooters last night for his radio spot on 610 AM. Upon pulling up, James noticed the billboard had a special message to Matt Leinart and the non-believers. "Hey Leinart, we believe." So simple and effective. In case you didn't hear, Leinart is being given the keys to the AFC South leading Texans due to a possible season-ending injury to Matt Schaub. Relax, Houston. Hooters knows their boy fairly well.
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: I'll be honest, never thought much of linebacker Bill Romanowski during his playing career. Dick would be a good way to summarize our feelings for him. That doesn't mean we don't like his refurbished Tudor home built in 1921. Even though Romo didn't bother to put in air conditioning (really?) the rest of it is pretty sweet. We've got the details and the photos. It can be yours for just $2.5 million. Check it!
Via SignOnSanDiego: The man, believed to be about 60, walked into the U.S. Bank on Balboa Avenue near Genesee Avenue about 9:30 a.m. and walked up to a teller. He lifted his shirt to show a pistol tucked into his waistband, put one hand on the gun and demanded money, the FBI said. The teller handed the robber some cash and he left. Witnesses saw him get into a gray, late-model Mercury. Is this your grandpa? We'll turn him in: email@example.com
Kudos to Holly Davis for having her head on swivel and finding the now infamous Roll Tide Truck parked at the local gas station getting a fill up. You might remember this video where the RTT owner showed off the amusement park on the back of that ride. Best fan truck in all of college sports. Not even a competition. In other news this morning, Jon Stewart went off on Jerry Sandusky last night. The conclusion: Jer is a horrible liar. Let's get rolling!
There are times when we suspect Reggie Bush's Twitter account was hacked. An hour ago would be one of those times. Reggie writes: "I don't know what it is about seeing a chick riding a motorcycle really does it for me! Lol! Shout out to all the chicks who ride bikes." Just randomly throws that out there. Our cohorts at Coed Magazine have Reggie covered with 121 Babes On Bikes, but those bikes would be bicycles. Something tells us Reg will still be fascinated.
It's been about a year when we first became acquainted with the MILF-y pornstar named Diamond Foxxx. Two things caught our eye. First, our office spent the better part of a week trying to figure out a total price on the plastic surgery Diamond has gone through. And the other 'thing' was her rabid fanaticism towards the Steelers. She ran this BJ contest and the rest was history. Well, she's back & LaMarr Woodley's sack total is very important. JUMP!
Yet another awesome MNF game for all you diehards who just can't get enough pigskin. Nothing like watching the Packers wiping their asses with the Vikings defense. 45-7. 10 Packers caught passes in the blowout. Rodgers now has 28 TDs and 3 INTs. In other news, Stephen Colbert last night warned parents of the growing vodka tamponing epidemic. If your son seems to be buying tampons at an alarming rate, you now know why. Let's get rolling!
BC Afternoon Editor Monty reports: Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich & Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson are America's 'it' couple right now. People just can't get enough of their story, so why not capitalize on it by throwing some cash at the situation? Introducing the David Nelson-Kelsi Reich prop bets. Some of them don't make much sense, but that probably won't stop you idiots from betting. Oh, and of course we have plenty of photos of Reich. Check it!
BC Afternoon Editor Monty reports: The wedding is off! At least temporarily. Tiki Barber is going to have to push back his wedding to Traci Lynn Johnson because a divorce from his wife Ginny isn't going to finalized any time soon. The Barbers are arguing over -- you guessed it -- money. Things just aren't going well for Tiki these days. Of course, he still has Johnson and we've got photos of her next to naked. Check it!
What were the chances Jermichael Finley would be getting a pre-MNF pedicure this afternoon and his pedi professional would be wearing a Packers shirt? High. Remember, this is Green Bay where even the Asians know how to present themselves on gameday. "Getting a nice pedi before this game tonight..
#YOTT2," Finley wrote this afternoon. Thanks for that J Fin. Now, more importantly, how did 'Tamako' end up scraping toes in Green Bay? That interests us.
The numbers don't lie with Jay Cutler. Fox can give us all the stats they'd like about how the Bears are winning thanks to Mike Martz focusing on the running game. BC investigators have a better theory as to why the Bears have gone 4-1 since early October. It was announced on Oct. 4 that Cutler was back to giving the moody meat to ex-fiancée Kristin Cavallari. Since then, this guy is on fire. This begs the question: Is Cavallari saving the Bears season? JUMP!
