Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: The (4-5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers are visiting the (9-0) Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. The Packers are undefeated and look to be Super Bowl contenders this year. Aaron Rodgers has made packers fans say "Brett who?". The 2010 Super Bowl champions look to have no problems with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that rank 31st in total defense in NFL. JUMP!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Who knew Kristin Cavallari had any redeeming qualities? Not us. But hell, we're men, so we can admit when we made a mistake. As it turns out, KCav does have some redeeming qualities that aren't her ass. She went to the Marine Corps Ball last night with Lance Cpl. Jonathan Burkett. That kicks ass. Her man, Jay Cutler, even took the time to give a shout out to Burkett and if that dick can do it, so can we. Your 15 minutes start now, but we'll salute you for every one of them. Here's to Burkett, KCav and our armed forces. Semper Fi, bitches!
Ian O'Connor writes this morning for ESPN.com: This is the same quarterback neither Elway nor the head coach, John Fox, seemed to want around. This is the same quarterback Fox said would be "screwed" if he had to run a conventional offense. How exactly does Tim Tebow go about his night after a 95-yard game-winning drive against the formidable Jets? Does he just go home & read the Bible? Does he call a few chicks over for lemonade? Yes, we're intrigued.
Pittsburgh resident Bill Hart, @bhart62, last night uploaded this pic from his local grocery store where customers are constantly reminded why their franchise is great. Can't even pick up Mrs. T's Pierogies without having a Terrible Towel in your face. In other news, the dude who wrote 'Itsy Bitsy' Bikini has died. You ladies think we're all perverts today? These assholes were writing bikini tunes in the 50s. Might be time for a remix. Timbaland available? Let's get rolling!
Houston Texans TE James Casey stopped at the Stafford, Texas Hooters last night for his radio spot on 610 AM. Upon pulling up, James noticed the billboard had a special message to Matt Leinart and the non-believers. "Hey Leinart, we believe." So simple and effective. In case you didn't hear, Leinart is being given the keys to the AFC South leading Texans due to a possible season-ending injury to Matt Schaub. Relax, Houston. Hooters knows their boy fairly well.
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: I'll be honest, never thought much of linebacker Bill Romanowski during his playing career. Dick would be a good way to summarize our feelings for him. That doesn't mean we don't like his refurbished Tudor home built in 1921. Even though Romo didn't bother to put in air conditioning (really?) the rest of it is pretty sweet. We've got the details and the photos. It can be yours for just $2.5 million. Check it!
Via SignOnSanDiego: The man, believed to be about 60, walked into the U.S. Bank on Balboa Avenue near Genesee Avenue about 9:30 a.m. and walked up to a teller. He lifted his shirt to show a pistol tucked into his waistband, put one hand on the gun and demanded money, the FBI said. The teller handed the robber some cash and he left. Witnesses saw him get into a gray, late-model Mercury. Is this your grandpa? We'll turn him in: email@example.com
Yet another awesome MNF game for all you diehards who just can't get enough pigskin. Nothing like watching the Packers wiping their asses with the Vikings defense. 45-7. 10 Packers caught passes in the blowout. Rodgers now has 28 TDs and 3 INTs. In other news, Stephen Colbert last night warned parents of the growing vodka tamponing epidemic. If your son seems to be buying tampons at an alarming rate, you now know why. Let's get rolling!
BC Afternoon Editor Monty reports: Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich & Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson are America's 'it' couple right now. People just can't get enough of their story, so why not capitalize on it by throwing some cash at the situation? Introducing the David Nelson-Kelsi Reich prop bets. Some of them don't make much sense, but that probably won't stop you idiots from betting. Oh, and of course we have plenty of photos of Reich. Check it!
BC Afternoon Editor Monty reports: The wedding is off! At least temporarily. Tiki Barber is going to have to push back his wedding to Traci Lynn Johnson because a divorce from his wife Ginny isn't going to finalized any time soon. The Barbers are arguing over -- you guessed it -- money. Things just aren't going well for Tiki these days. Of course, he still has Johnson and we've got photos of her next to naked. Check it!
The numbers don't lie with Jay Cutler. Fox can give us all the stats they'd like about how the Bears are winning thanks to Mike Martz focusing on the running game. BC investigators have a better theory as to why the Bears have gone 4-1 since early October. It was announced on Oct. 4 that Cutler was back to giving the moody meat to ex-fiancée Kristin Cavallari. Since then, this guy is on fire. This begs the question: Is Cavallari saving the Bears season? JUMP!
“Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, s--- my d---,” Bill Belichick is quoted as saying after the Patriots pasted the Jets last night in New Jersey. While Bill was trumping anything that has ever come out of Rex Ryan's mouth, Twitter was exploding with racial hate towards Mark Sanchez for his 2 INT game, one of which was a pick six. We missed it, but it seems Sanchez went with a Mexican mouthpiece. That sent the Twits over the edge. JUMP!
Hell, he's got nothing else to do, so Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hung out at Carolina Panthers practice today. While he was there he threw footballs at the goal post with Cam Newton & Co., which, it turns out, is a game players play in their free time. We didn't see Newton come through, but Curry did... and then he posed for the camera. Here's the video. Check it!
Back in August we told you about holy roller Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich and her relationship with Buffalo Bills WR David Nelson. The story had a day or two run and flamed out. Well, guess who's playing in the D this Sunday? Yep, Nelson and the Bills. Anyway, Jimmy Traina posted about the couple, Yahoo ran a piece and just fired it onto its front page. The reaction has been ugly. See, Johnson isn't lily white. And we have a commenting revolution. JUMP!
As mentioned earlier this morning, there was actual football played last night. For those of you who don't have the NFL Network, let's just say you didn't miss too much. The Raiders went into Jack Murphy and left with first place in the AFC West via a 24-17 victory. And, of course, Twitter exploded with hatred aimed at Phillip Rivers who now has 13 TD passes and 15 INTs. He only has one game this season without an INT - against Miami. Fans are restless & so NSFW! JUMP!
New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker is a short dude, but he's a short dude with a lot of receiving yards and a hot girlfriend. So what does a short dude do when he throws a party? He hires a couple dudes to make him look tall. What the hell are we talking about? Take a look for yourself. This odd looking photo will all make sense in a moment. Check it!
How did that teabagging work out for you, Flo? 12 carries, 117 yards. Two TDs through the air. It's good to see that Carson Palmer trade working out for the Raiders. 3 picks. But, in typical Raiders fan fashion, these morans win the battle of great GameDay signs. What else is going on in the NFL? The Cincinnati friggin' Bengals have the second-best rush defense in the NFL and now can kinda bury the Steelers next Sunday. Let's get rolling!
There is a Publix grocery store about 250 yards from where GameDay is broadcasting live this week. Would someone please take a photo of the beer aisle in that store. Has to be empty. Frat houses directly in front of Fowler and crew. They call this street The Strip. It's Ground Zero for Saturday's BCS Championship. If you are going to be in the area and want to be a hero to Busted Coverage readers around the world, take pics. firstname.lastname@example.org
We're very surprised to be the first outlet putting the pieces together on the Aaron Rodgers' family weekend in Nashville to watch little brother John account for 3 TDs in Vandy's heartbreaking loss to Arkansas. But, for Luke and Aaron, they shook off the loss and went to a Halloween party where Luke ran into his old friend @NanciFilipelli who just happened to take a photo with the brothers. Relax, ladies, Aaron is still with Destiny. JUMP!
Just putting the finishing recaps together for Halloween - 2011 and couldn't possibly put the year to bed without a look at the 49ers Gold Rush cheerleading squad. The ladies turned in a few decent costumes and actually dropped some Halloween cleav which is usually difficult due to the nature of the costumes. You see many Hermione's walking around town looking like sluts? You will on the 9ers sideline. Great work ladies. Next year: slutty nurses. All of you. JUMP!
Martinez in Escondido had an email waiting on us this morning. "RIP AL!" Man of few words. Of course the Dead Al Davis was coming for Halloween. You 'too early' jerkoffs need to realize that Al was pretty much dead since March '09 so it's all good. Bonus points, as you'll see, for powder white Al figuring out how to attach some scabs. Points deducted from Al Davis Costume Guys for not going out and getting the satin Raiders jacket. But all things considered, solid Halloween, fellas. JUMP!
America was at it again yesterday trying to kill Skip Bayless for defending Tim Tebow. Said Skip on Twitter: "If Broncos won't let Tebow run shotgun hurry-up he's been so successful w/ in 5 straight 4th qs, put Orton back in! WANT Tebow him to fail?" And, of course, that sent the Twitter-verse into a feeding frenzy. We also have a new Tebow apologist - Dickie V.! "All you Tebow haters have a ball. Know you can't wait to take him apart." Oh, it's on now. NSFW TEBOW TWEETS! JUMP!
Yes, we saw the photo of Steven Tulloch #Tebowing Tebow. Thank you to all 23 of you who sent it. Instead of running a photo that's being splashed around the NFL, how about the U.S. troops and a Tebowing Flash Mob® outside Mile High. The power of #Tebowing is undeniable. Meanwhile, in Detroit, Drew Sharp is encouraging the Lions to embrace the Evil mantra. "The Lions decimated the myth of Tim Tebow. A day of rest this wasn't for the Mile High Messiah." Let's get rolling!
First of all, huge congratulations to the guys at IllegalShift.com for calling county courthouses in Arkansas trying to find some sort of proof whether a Peyton Hillis wedding went down this week. You might remember how Busted Coverage told the world a wedding was going down Tuesday - an NFL off-day - and that Hillis was tying the knot. Folks, the Cleveland media still hasn't figured this one out. Shame on you, Carl Monday. JUMP!
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is supporting friend and St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa in one of the strangest ways we can fathom -- by wearing his jersey. It's kind of creepy if you ask us, but hey, we don't want to criticize the fashion plate that is Bill Belichick. Or do we? Here's the story of how this diabolical merger of Belichick and La Russa happened. Check it!
The Tim Tebow craze just keeps getting bigger. Tebowing has replaced planking as the cool thing to do on Twitter. Of course, we're all over this developing trend because we've got a nose for hard news! Where to Tebow, how to Tebow and why to Tebow . We've got it all for you right here, including the 24 greatest Tebowing photos from the Internet. Like a Tim Tebow jump pass... JUMP!
ESPN has officially gone balls against the chin with Andrew Luck and Tim Tebow because America just can't get enough of these two sports heroes. Maybe you heard about the new craze on Twitter that is sweeping the world. #Tebowing. Look it up. Much easier than planking and less dangerous unless you fools take it to the next level. Anyway, we've had an eye on Twitter today and the NSFW crowd is on fire with Andrew Luck and Skip Bayless/Tebow hate spooge. The tweets. JUMP!
Want to know how to create the perfect storm for pageviews on the Internet? Porn star-NFL-major TV market-porn-porn star with an insane Twitpic gallery. That's it. This beast is a juggernaut. Blogs are paying year-end bonuses with this traffic. Anyway, Shannon Sharpe was asked today what the big issue was with the pic. "Just taking the pix wasn't the problem taking it with her n his jersey and no shirt on.Problem." Keep the hysteria rolling boys. Christmas gonna be nice.
It's been three NFL season since Tony Gonzalez played for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was coming off a huge season in 2008 when he had 96 grabs for 1,058 yards and 10 TDs. It was also time to finally cash in and make some serious money as a free agent. He was living in this K.C. condo and about to sign a $17.75mm guaranteed contract with the Falcons. But Tony still has ties to K.C. that he just can't seem to rid himself of. That condo. It's still on the market. JUMP!
Why do we love Fox Sports Mexico or whatever they're calling it these days? Because that channel is like watching SFW porn and we don't even have to pay extra for it in the BC office AT&T cable plan. Mamacitas like Jimena Sanchez just appear out of thin air. And they LOVE sports. Take Sanchez. She's a huge Oakland Raiders, New York Yankees, Lakers and Babe Ruth fan. Seriously. She has a Ruth poster hanging in her home. Our new Mexican secret crush - JUMP!
Those are James Harrison's legs at 3:45 this morning during an overnight acupuncture electric treatment. Why at that time in the morning? Not sure. Has to be a perfectly good reason or we assume Harrison wouldn't get out of bed to have his leg jolted like you'll see in this video. The Steelers LB reported via Twitter two hours later: Goodnight! Got to get up in 2 hours to workout! And you think NFLers just go clubbin' and nail chicks on Tuesdays. (via @jharrison9292)
America's Couple are expecting their first child. That's right! Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and beauty queen wife Candice Crawford have one in the oven. Romo let the news slip today and, of course, we are all over it. Is this going to be the best-looking most gifted child ever? You bet your sweet American dream-loving ass it is! The fairy tale is real, people! JUMP!
What would you do for free tickets to an NFL game? We know these Buffalo Bills fans would dig through a pile of buffalo crap to get tickets to watch their team. While the premise may not sound too appealing, the video is hilarious, thanks to a gagging radio jock and some dumbass who keeps digging in the pile of crap long after the contest has ended. Get in and check it out you dirty pigs!
2011 has been a very strange season for Browns RB Peyton Hillis. In one of the most shocking moments in video game history, he's named cover boy for Madden '12. Of course that means that he's instantly cursed. But is something even bigger than a curse going on behind closed doors? Bigger than that contract situation? Bigger than the strep throat issue that mysteriously sent him home during Week 3? Could Hillis actually be getting married today? JUMP!
The sports bloggers who cream their pants over stats are going nuts this morning analyzing the Saints 62-7 drubbing of a Colts team with Jeff Spicoli under center. "Oh, look, the Rams haven't scored 62 points this year!" Or what about "Colts, Raiders, Rams, Seahawks, Browns, Titans, Dolphins and Lions combined for 61 points on Sunday. Saints scored 62," via SBNation? Meanwhile, we were just over here combing Twitter for NSFW Painter hate. JUMP!
You might remember last week when Busted Coverage debuted the very first known Al Davis tattoo post-RIP. Now comes word that yesterday some guy still grieving over Al's passing went out and got AFL Al on his body (Update: that's Al on a bicep). What's becoming apparent from the first two tats is that Raiders fan wants to remember young rebel Al. Why won't someone step up and get Ballsack Al tatted on their shoulder. Get a quote, we might spring for it.JUMP!
