Welcome to a new series here at Busted Coverage where we use the Internet to revisit some of the finer moments in sports history via our research abilities. We'll look into the histories of athletes, members of the media and how those stories have relevancy all these years later. Today BC flashes back to 1978. The Cowboys had just beaten the Green Bay Packers and a 26-year-old Skip Bayless had attacked Tony Dorsett just two weeks before the game. JUMP!
For those of you who are new around here let's catch up on old Busted Coverage news. We've always been intrigued with Matthew Stafford and his girlfriend Kelly Hall. Why? Because BC has poked fun at them, wondered about Staffs pounding beers & published their vacation photos. If anything, it was just a matter of time before a lawyer wrote us an email. But it didn't happen. Now Kelly follows our tweets & even agreed to chat after the Lions-Cowboys thriller. JUMP!
You know him from Monday Night Football and, um, well, Monday Night Football. Hank Williams Jr. had a couple hits before the Internet existed, became an enraged Republican/Tea Party/angry white guy. Yesterday he let it all fly on Fox & Friends where he likened President Obama to Hitler. The day ended with ESPN pulling his MNF opener and Twitter blazing hot with NSFW tweets. Luckily, those tweets were still pouring in this morning. JUMP!
Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush didn't do much on the field during Sunday's loss to the San Diego Chargers, but he had a good time in his hometown and in L.A. Bush headed up the 5 and hit the club scene after the game, had a few drinks and looked at some dancing broads. All in all, a fine way to spend a Sunday evening drowning your sorrows. Check it out here!
Just now catching up on DVRs from over the weekend and getting our first look at Angela Rypien's Lingerie Football League debut Friday night in Green Bay. What have we learned about Mark Rypien's daughter and her football abilities? She can throw a football, just not accurately at this time. She also has one helluva mean streak in her that came out during a play late in the first quarter. Sean Salisbury has the color as Angela gets a personal foul. JUMP!
What a great day in the NFL for those of you who take to Twitter to drop f-bombs, dick jokes, etc. towards QBs who blow a 24-point lead. Tony Romo had a 3rd quarter for the ages with two INTs returned for TDs. Um, those were on consecutive drives. Instead of winning, going 3-1 and staying with the pack in the NFC East, the Cowboys are a ho hum 2-2. If you like NSFW tweets and black dudes destroying the dictionary, this one is for you. JUMP!
Busted Coverage has boots on the ground in Madison, Wisconsin for ESPN GameDay stop. It’s Nebraska's first Big Ten game and Wisconsin's high-powered offense seems poised to pound the ball down their throats . The students are fired up with their corn-inspired signs. Cheeseheads are up early and we assuming drinking heavily. They have crazy ass signs to show mom and dad back home in Eau Claire. Here are your best of the best. Enjoy.
Listen up, fatties, there's a new diet on the market thanks to Erin Andrews. It's ironically called the Erin Andrews Weekly Diet and it's pretty simple. The problem with your giant ass is that you've been eating wrong all along. That garbage 'organic' crap you're getting from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods? Straight to the trash. Pageviews, in an interview with Marie Claire, tells us how she eats on a weekly basis. Guys, get your wife's giant caboose to Arby's TONIGHT! Double curly! JUMP!
The message was loud and clear from Busted Coverage Nation. Our recent '58 Greatest Tailgating Rides' post fired up the readership and meant several submissions from those of you who felt slighted. We're sorry. Art sent in his J-E-T-S ride that helps even the drunkest fan find home base. Falcons fan wanted his family's ambulance recognized. So many of you have poured your life into these rides. Keep submitting them. firstname.lastname@example.org Preferably w/chicks in photos.
Need more examples of why Indiana University football is the smell of rotten flesh being scrapped off the BCS floor? Remember IU football coach acting like a giant hardo back in August in a radio interview? Yeah, his team is 1-3 with a victory over South Carolina State. He might only get two wins all year. And one of the best RBs on the IU roster, Darius Willis, was wrasslin' Saturday night. Dude is supposed to have a knee injury. Lucky us, the IU student newspaper has the video.
The Twitter direct messages were flying feverishly last night as we coached Busted Coverage NHL Pucktress @JessicaRedfield on how to make a Lingerie Football League bet at MGM. "Jess, just tell the guy at the sportsbook that you want to put $25 on the Green Bay Chill," was all we had to tell this Vegas Virgin. And we wake up this morning to this Twitter message about the photos: "It's Vegas. There will be cleavage. Cool?" Hopefully it's cool with you guys. JUMP!
Digest this: MGM in Vegas has the Green Bay Chill as +6.5 home dogs tomorrow night against the Seattle Mist a Lingerie Football League tilt. Maybe you remember we told you in the spring that Mark Rypien's daughter would be under center for the Mist. Look, we're big Angela Rypien fans. She's the only offspring of a Super Bowl winning QB that'll talk to us via email. But this number looks too high. What makes us say that? There are several factors. JUMP!
If you don't know by now that Busted Coverage has a man-crush on Cam Newton, where have you been? Look, we're straight hetero, but how can we deny Newton's dominance over us. Warlock. Now comes news that the NFL Rookie of the Month will soon be wearing these pink Under Armour shoes. Media maven @billvoth reports: "Pic of Cam Newton's pink shoes he'll most likely break out some time in October." GULP. Love 'em.
We're closing in on Week 4 of the NFL season so it's now or never for our NFL Cheerleader Overload project where we dissect squads and provide you with ample material to waste company time. Today we get started with the world famous Charger Girls. Call it an East Coast bias or whatever you want, but these ladies are overlooked by 90% of the U.S. TV viewer. Of course we know the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are cute. Um, wait until you peruse this overload. BOLTS! JUMP!
It wasn't all good news out of the St. Louis Cardinals camp last night. Just on a hunch we decided to check in with Bianca LaRussa, Tony's daughter, because her father was all over our TV. A look at the Raiderettes page was confusing. Where was Bianca for the Raiders home opener against the Jets. Time to check Twitter. BOOM! There it was, an update late last night. The news wasn't pretty. While Tony celebrates, his daughter's cheerleading career could be over. JUMP!
BC reader Kyle in Chicago wants to know if this should be considered a bad beat. "All I need is for Notre Dame and Brady to show up. Thats it!. Then N.E. defense takes a shit against the Bills. Was sick for at least 48 hours." Well, Kyle, that's how Vegas keeps paying for those Russian hookers serving you top shelf tequila. You figure N.D. gets the win and the Patriots win by 13. Then this happens. Get 'em next week, champ. Best way to come back is double your bets. Let's get rolling.
