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!
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)
