You have no idea how big of a smile came across the faces of those in the office today when we first noticed that Jimmy Johnson officially started tweeting at @JimmyJohnson. Why the excitement? Because it has been known for years amongst us sports Internet guys that Jimmy is living an amazing life in the Keys and he's never shy about showing us that life. Now we get to see it on a daily basis. Win. JUMP!
Just getting around to opening a Twitter account and have no idea who you should be following during the upcoming NFL season? BC sent our Twitter researcher, Robert, in search of the 50 NFL player Twitter accounts you need to follow - immediately. (Yes, T.O. is on the list. He'll be back.) Whether it's what they're eating or thinking, you must make these 50 individuals part of your daily life. The list - JUMP!
Look what we have this morning. The Detroit Lions might not have legitimate cheerleaders supporting them, but the organization does have these bros hanging at training camp. Never have understood the blue man, green man or insert your favorite color suit. But in this case it's great to see the Blue Men repping the Lions. Crooked hats. Keys to his rusted out 2001 Chrysler Sebring hanging around the neck. iPhone in the pants. 3rd year community college students. So much fun.
Know how much it costs to overnight 4 BC t-shirts and Cam Newton's BCS game-worn pants to Los Angeles? $74. Most of you remember how Busted Coverage bought Cam's pants from Auburn University back in May. Yeah, well now we're about to put the lovely Jaime Edmondson in those pants as part of our college/NFL football kickoff coverage. Other sites bore your ass to death with stupidity. Not us. JUMP!
Never been to an NFL training camp and want to really know what it’s like to sit in 100-degree heat while players stretch, hit tackling dummies and kickers try to split uprights? Busted Coverage is spending part of its summer to do a mini-NFL training camp tour. Our camp extravaganza continued Saturday night in Pittsford, NY. Redneck Bills' fan, Jorts & even a goth Bills' fan - JUMP!
Look, if your team is going to get its ass handed to them for 16 weeks this NFL season, at least make training camp fun, right? That's exactly what Pete Carroll has done by allowing a DJ spin some tunes. We know the guy has played The Clash, M.I.A. and Jimi Hendrix. The dude responsible for the tunes goes by DJ DV One. Get your requests in! JUMP!
Fallen hero Jim Tressel might have the support of his former players but now the mockery of Sweater Vest has spread to other Ohio campuses, specifically Ohio University. And there's more from the Tressel front. Players hoping to wear JT bracelets for their fallen warrior/father figure have been told that the plastic tributes won't be necessary. NO BRACELETS! Play football, morons. JUMP!
Back in the Spring it was leaked that John Madden's NYC apartment was on the market and the story kinda flew under the radar. First thought for us was, 'Why does John Madden need a NYC crash pad?' Of course there were appearances for CBS & NBC, but we're still trying to figure out why Mad Dog bought this place way back in 1985. If our memory serves us correctly, the guy was on the road for 16 weeks per year with maybe 3-4 weeks in the city for Jets/Giants games. But what do we know. His 2-bedroom hotel is about to pay him some cash back. This place is valuable. JUMP!
Never been to an NFL training camp and want to really know what it's like to sit in 100-degree heat while players stretch, hit tackling dummies and kickers try to split uprights? Busted Coverage is spending part of its summer to do a mini-NFL training camp tour. Our camp extravaganza kicked off yesterday in Berea, Ohio where the Cleveland Browns have their indoor complex and training camp facilities. Before we go any further, if you are looking for player updates and how Colt McCoy looked throwing the ball, wrong blog. JUMP!
Dallas Cowboys' training campers enjoyed some celebrity action yesterday as the infamous PeeWee Herman was in town to say hi. Why was PeeWee at Cowboys' camp? To see boys in tight pants. Um, obvious. According to the local media, Herman was in San Antonio to shoot a an episode of 'Top Chef' at the Alamo and figured a visit with Tony Romo, Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett would be great fun. Yesterday's secret word - COWBOYS - according to PeeWee's Twitter account.
The people in Miami want Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton, so much so that they've begun chanting "We want Orton!" Apparently, the Phins current signal caller, Chad Henne, has had his delicate ego bruised because of it. Whoops! JUMP!
Just 24 hours after TMZ dropped its gallery of Casey Anthony strolling around a Columbus, Ohio outdoor mall wearing an Ohio State hat a radio station is making an interesting offer. Would Casey be willing to remove that hat for some cash? More specifically, would the aquitted child killer be willing to wear the colors from the school up north? A couple of radio show idiots have $10k on the table. JUMP!
It's officially German-American Festival time in Wisconsin, a time when drinking like a fool and sharing a landjaeger with a significant other is considered tradition. It's also time, for the women working the festivals, to bust out their favorite Green Bay Packers dirndls. While we appreciate this Aaron Rodgers dirndl, it's also time to appreciate grandpa's socks/sandals combo. Someone get us a beer - NOW! JUMP!
Free agent receiver Braylon Edwards isn't doing much to raise his stock among NFL teams. All signs point to Edwards being involved in the nightclub fight he was reportedly on the periphery of, this week. The WR says tweets on this Twitter account about fighting were the work of a hacker. But now it looks like this idiot just might have been in a fight. Another jail landing a Michigan receiver?<b? JUMP!
It's likely Adam Schefter hasn't been laid in weeks. It's likely John Clayton hasn't washed his rat tail in weeks. Meanwhile, Jay Glazer checks his phone here and there between throwing forearm bombs into MMA punk faces. The NFL free agent frenzy has been intense. It's time to recap some of the moves you might have heard of & some obscure free agents who deserve credit. Who is the fattest free agent to get a deal? JUMP!
This photo of college guys with bulging pectoral muscles, tats, chains and a Chucky doll has been making its rounds amongst the SEC crowd. Figured since most of you are Midwesterners, East Coasters and maybe a few Mountain Time Zoners it was worth posting for your amusement. That's the Florida Gators' defensive line. Odds are at least one will end up in prison before 25. You should be scared right now - JUMP!
