Let's be clear about this to those of you born in 1990-present and we know there are many of you. Wayne Gretzky NEVER played for the Chicago Blackhawks so don't be going on Twitter and telling your boys that you're getting a Gretzky Blackhawks home sweater. They shouldn't exist. Same goes for the road sweater. This is Wayne at his fantasy camp where campers pay an estimated $12,000 to put Wayne in whatever sweater you wish. JUMP!
Washington Capitals forward Alexander Ovechkin has a new pad and, well... we're not all that impressed. The joint is big, that's for sure. It cost a lot of money -- $4.2 million to be exact. There's nothing terribly special about it, though. First of all, it's in Virginia. Second of all, it has none of the stupid, garish things athletes have in their homes. Not even a pool. The coolest thing here is Ovechkin's giant deck. Take a look for yourself.
So you're a Canadian kid attending the 2012 NHL All Star Game in Ottawa, well don't disrespect the good ol' US of A during our National Anthem. This little douchebag was talking the entire time the camera was on him and then put his huge hat over his head. Show some respect son. During the skills portion of the NFL All Star Game a goalie went Tebowing and actually blocked the shot. Check all this out and more after the JUMP!
Of course BC was starting to wonder if Matthew Barnaby would ever return to Twitter after his insane early December DUI arrest. Our hero was driving on the rim of his Porsche with sparks flying all over the road. The former NHLer had also hit something along his route home from the bar. It was one of those moments where it would seem logical to step away from alcohol for possibly ever. Pfft, not Barns. Dude is back on Twitter & drinking - Pepsi? JUMP!
We'll have more on this tomorrow, but quickly, NHL All-Star Draft viewers are unloading on Alyonka Larionov who is getting her big TV break as a social media sideline reporter tonight. Her dad is Igor, the famous Russian who had huge success in the NHL with Detroit. Alyonka, once the arm candy of Alex Ovechkin, has been working her way up the hockey media landscape & viewers aren't digging the rookie. Twitter isn't being very nice. JUMP!
If you like grizzly injuries, then we've got a treat for you! Washington Capitals forward Matt Hendricks suffered one of the most disgusting ear injuries we've ever seen after catching a bouncing Alex Ovechkin shot in the side of his head. The shot split Hendricks' ear nearly in half. Of course, he just got some stitches and was back on the ice the next day. Here's the story and the disgusting photo. Check it!
You want a piece of sports history? Well, it's going to cost you... big time. Defenseman Ken Morrow's Miracle On Ice jersey is up for auction and guess what. The price is rising pretty quickly. The auction started at $5,000, but the price was already past $11,000 Friday afternoon. Oh, and there's 20-odd days left for bidding. We're gonna guess this one goes for somewhere north of $20,000. Take a look for yourself and throw down a bid!
Thanks to our friends @CrossingBroad last night for having their eyes open for Flyers Middle Finger/Backwards Hat Guy. We stopped paying attention at 3-0 NYI & figure Philly bro went home and beat his dog. AFC/NFC Championship weekend is finally here and that means BC will be in Vegas for the festivities. Kevin The Intern is busting his Vegas cherry on this trip. Of course we're treating. The guy is 30 days out of Purdue, mooching off our BJ stack. Let's get rolling!
Oilers left winger Taylor Hall took a skate across his head the other night in Columbus - during warmups. A freak fall resulted in Hall taking out his teammate and Corey Potter trying to avoid the bodies strewn across the ice. No chance. Potter's skate clipped Hall's head and you now get a look at what a skate can do to a face. Not a good look. JUMP!
In case you forgot or were passed out that day, BC told you that WWE Diva Kelly Kelly was dating Dallas Stars' defenseman Sheldon Souray. True, not the biggest of stories but you idiots seem to like wrestling - alot - so we have to tell you about Kelly's birthday party over the weekend where her narcissism was turned into a cake with her likeness. The good news for us, Souray and his bro Eric Nystrom tweeted about eating the boobs. JUMP!
There's growing buzz this morning within the MLK Day black face message board community about Bruins black face fan at last night's Florida Panthers game in South Florida. Portnoy at Barstool posted an image this morning of Black Face slapping the glass during the 3-2 Bruins shootout victory. Of course we started looking around and of course there was Black Face and his broads before the game. How doesn't this guy get his ass kicked regularly? JUMP!
The Bibi Jones freight train just won't stop thanks to the record-breaking season from Rob Gronkowski and her ability to detect trends. Guys like sports. Guys like porn. Guys like chicks with implants. Guys like hot chicks in jerseys. Guys even like porn stars in ECHL hockey jerseys. So guess who Bibi was repping at her stripping gig this weekend in Reading, Pa.? The home team. Greatest free marketing that stupid hockey team has ever received. JUMP!
At this point it's nearly impossible to keep track of what WWE Diva is dating professional athletes. Out of the blue we learn that Torrie Wilson is taking A-Rod to meet her family in Boise. Cloon-dog is parading Keibler around the world. Now we find out that Kelly Kelly is dating the Dallas Stars defenseman Sheldon Souray, via a New Year's party with fellow Stars' WAGs. This guy scores 250+ points in the NHL and lands Kelly Kelly. Strange world, indeed. JUMP!
BC reader Ryan R. was watching the Winter Classic Alumni game last night and about lost his shit when this blonde turned up on the VS broadcast. "Awkward Interview during the NHL Winter Classic Alumni Game on 12/31/2011. However, great picture during that interview…." Kinda has that Elin Nordegren look going on. God help us if that doesn't say New York under her scarf. We've given you the hints, now it's time to do work: email@example.com
What's the biggest news out of the 2012 Winter Classic besides the 50-degree temps and the likelihood that the ice at Citizens Bank Park will be slush? How about the 1-2 WAG force the NY Rangers bring to the Classic behind LW Brandon Prust & C Brad Richards. Prust has been flaunting French import Marie-Pier Morin on HBO's 24/7 while Richards has turned into a tabloid célébrité thanks to his burgeoning relationship with G4's Olivia Munn. JUMP!
So earlier this week we innocently asked why the Gretzkys were acting so hard in their Christmas card and a day later the Toronto Star picks up the story and runs with it. One thing leads to another and Canadians are comparing the Gretzkys to the Kardashians and eventually leads to Paulina Gretzky - once again - in a Twitter drama. Then we open the inbox this morning and the Gretzky Christmas card photographer is emailing us. JUMP!
