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!
Kudos to the Oregon Ducks cheerleading unit. Yes, we've said that over and over again. While other cheerleading units like the Song Girls, the crazy Indianapolis Colts' cheerleaders, the Jets Flight Crew and others are embargoing their galleries, UO is headed in the opposite direction. Last year the ladies went on a lake retreat. That became an instant BC greatest hit. For 2011 the bar was raised. How about the Oregon Duck mascot & 140 HP hauling ladies around on a boat? JUMP!
What's not to love about the University of Oregon? The football team is wonderful. The weather is Florida-esque, minus the sunshine and warm temperatures, for eight months out of the year. And the university will market themselves like no other. ESPN GameDay rolls into town and wants to make camp with the Lillis business school building as a backdrop. But wait, something is missing. It needs a giant 'O' logo. Two maintenance guys get in a cherry picker. BAM. JUMP!
As one observer noted after learning of a report claiming the Dallas Cowboys are using sweatshop labor in El Salvador to make toddler creepers: "Wear America's Team Clothing Made in El Salvador" ... Now that is a marketing slogan. That's cool and all, but we're more interested in how the workers are treated, specifically the language used to make the workers give 110% effort. "You're a piece of garbage. You don't know how to work and you're good for nothing." JUMP!
Oh, there are big problems at the University of Wisconsin not pertaining to getting drunk and smoking weed on the campus. Barry Alvarez and Bret Bielema have had it with your obscene chants during nationally televised football games. Want to get a bad reputation and not be selected for the BCS Championship after going undefeated because Oklahoma is undefeated and Alabama has one loss? Keep it up. F-bombs and "Eat S*&^" are hereby banned. JUMP!
Still trying to figure out if this guy is a beggar or just chilling out along the road with a 'Native Needs Tebow' sign. If he's begging, this is the greatest way to bum a few bucks we've seen in ages. Playing the Tebow card. Like it. In other Tebow news this morning, Woody Paige came up with an original idea for a column - What Will Tebow Do This Sunday. "Tebow will determine his own future in Denver by the way he plays over the next three months." Seriously? (via @SirKingRyan)
Be honest with yourself for a minute. Joan & Melissa Rivers three-way, "How Many Beers?" Not even joking, 12-14 & a vodka/Red Bull nightcapper. Just think of all the bucket list items to scratch off. Bagging 70+ year old - CHECK. Mother-Daughter Three-Way - CHECK. Famous Chicks - CHECK. 6 Degrees Of Kevin Bacon - CHECK. And don't think for a second Joan doesn't get work done on the beef curtains. Oh, hey, Erin Andrews! Call us. firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
