Yes, these photos of Shanna McLaughlin in the Central Florida locker room are from 2010. Yes, George O'Leary got an earful for this happening in his locker room. But these pics of Playboy Ms. McLaughlin are like a Fall anthem. Can you hear the birds chirping? The football pads popping? The cheerleaders strapping on the suits? Brent Musberger's "You are looking live..." Welcome to our football '11 official kick off. Gallery! JUMP!
You know how we know Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt feels pretty good about his future in the desert? About a month ago he listed his Chandler pad on the real estate market. His contract will help him earn between $5.5 and $6 million a year - base. Of course it's time to sell off the puny 5 bed with a decent pool. But this tropical paradise isn't getting the job done. Ken's asking $1.3mm. Oh, hell yes he's about to take a loss. JUMP!
The folks at EA Sports went nuts this week setting up a legit football field (field turf!) in Bryant Park so a few old timers (Jerry Rice, Dan Marino) could play football with/against hot chicks (Chrissy Teigen, Maria Menounos). What went down during the game? Scouts tell us that Teigen showed great hands and Menounos went 10-for-17 with 145 yards passing. The numbers and skills helped both land free agent deals with the Buccaneers. JUMP!
Ahh, 'Bama, we love you so much. It's rare to find another state that combines university fanaticism and meth labs like Alabama. Tennessee, Georgia and Ohio are a close second. But this is Alabama's domain. This is where families stick together during tough times, like living in a Motel 6 with your 59-year-old mother. That's the life of David Wayne Barton. He's 38, looking rough and cooking some hillbilly heroin with him mother. Details - JUMP!
The Tennessee Titans surprised a lot of people when they drafted Jake Locker, but it appears they had a plan for him all along. Locker is performing errands during training camp for the Titans organization before he settles into his regular job of holding a clipboard while Matt Hasselbeck quarterbacks the team. Guess JUMP!
There are strict requirements for any person interviewed on BC. The individual must be capable of telling a sports-related story and actually have favorite sports teams. Today we catch up with Penthouse Pet Aimee Sweet, a New England native who has interesting rooting interests. She's a Celtics, Patriots and Bruins fan. And a Yankees fan. Seriously. It's like one of the most taboo choices a Boston fan could possibly make. Her reasoning & a party story with Lonnie Paxton - JUMP!
Somehow we came across news today that Bengals' QB Andy Dalton got married July 9 without a single sports blog publicizing his wedding registry. By the way, any other QBs out there get hitched this summer that we missed? Flacco, Roethlisberger, Romo, Dalton. At this point, Colt McCoy has the length of marriage lead in the AFC North. Must admit, this Dalton kid is just too damn cute. The wife - Jordan Jones - ain't too bad either. JUMP!
C'mon, ESPN. Quit making yourself look silly. We get it, you have sources. And a source. Here we thought things were bad yesterday when there were 5 'sources' on ESPN.com. This morning there are 8 sources/source and 1 report. Someone wake us in mid-August when it's time for our fantasy draft where we'll be going with the 2 Girls & 1 John Clayton name this season. Beat that. You can't so don't even try.
Looks like our post on Bernie Kosar's nipple-sticker-wearing daughter, Sara, has finally made its way to the Internet's underbelly where shady characters try to shake us down for Ms. Kosar's porn site URL. To be honest, if the schiester wouldn't have contacted us we would have let the whole Sara Kosar and nipple sticker post fade off into infamy. Not now. We think one of you will give it up for FREE just because. PICS, EMAIL, JUMP!
How would you celebrate if you just got a contract that will pay you $10 million a year with $24 million in guaranteed money? Well, if you're New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes, you'd pause your video game, get up and pound a bottle of Cristal. Hell, we'd have done the same thing. Boss move we totally approve! Now, get camps open ASAP. JUMP!
Nothing to see here, people. Just Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian enjoying a moment with the Pac-12 medicinal weed dealer. How refreshing to see the new conference stay true to its roots with Sgt. Pepper being welcomed to media day. Meanwhile, in the SEC they were freaking out over "I Hate Auburn" guy who showed up in Birmingham. And then you had the Big 12 with 6-foot-10 cheerleader freak. JUMP!
Imagine our surprise this morning as we were going through our regular routine and figured out that the Oakland Raiders will soon debut the NFL's only grandmother cheerleader. And here we thought the big news from the Raiderettes this year would be Tony LaRussa's daughter. Now comes Susie Sanchez. Is NFL fan ready for a grandmother on a sideline shaking her pom poms? We're about to find out. JUMP!
Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has a lot of things going for him -- frontrunner for the Heisman, a bright future in the NFL. However, good personal hygiene is not among them. Luck showed up at Pac 12 media day looking more like Grizzly Adams than the last great Stanford quarterback, John Elway. At least the Amish will have a Heisman contender to cheer for this Fall. Photos! JUMP!
Major props to the Big 12 Conference this year for spicing up media day by including school cheerleaders, according to Star-Telegram reporter Mac Engel. We've been to a few media days in our lifetime and they're giant sausage fests where TV guys walk around looking for mirrors. Finally, a little something for the print guys to look at instead of Internet porn while Art Briles mans the mic. Photos - JUMP!
Can we blame Jimmy Clausen for being two minutes behind Cam Newton getting into Carolina Panthers HQ? Of course not. Jim had to throw on his bracelets, figure out which bandwagon shirt to wear and what hat would scream "The starting QB job is mine." Exactly how does one prepare to hold a clipboard? Huge hit to the ego, no? Anyway, Cam's in camp and remaining stoic. Tim Tebow is in, too. Dude looks like he's ready to run over a Gatorade machine. JUMP!
Seriously, had mushrooms for lunch and totally regretting it right now. About 25 minutes after finishing off the last fungus, it just happened that BC came across the Dave Duerson brain dissection video that The Guardian has uploaded for the world to see. Dave was serious about this brain research stuff, going as far as texting his wife “Please, see that my brain is given to the N.F.L.’s brain bank." Well, Dave, it happened. And here is the video. JUMP!
