Would've never touched this one if it weren't for the fact that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez kinda forced our hand with a variety of SFW, yet NSFW positions at Saturday's Winnipeg Jets game. Just drilling for oil. Hands on the rack. Gotta give it to the douchebag, he puts on one helluva show at a sporting event. Could've bored us with a bunch of nothing, yet puts his chick on his lap and makes her gasp. Must admit, very jealous of Biebs. JUMP!
Much is being made this afternoon of Tony La Russa's daughter dropping a Twitter bomb last night by referencing a crackhead and Ron Washington. Devon La Russa is backtracking from this: "I saw a crack head doing "The Wash" today. Coincidence? I think not..." That tweet was deleted & followed by: I really truly did not mean to be offensive! It's a phrase I use, meant as a joke. Please don't be offended! Go Cards!!! Now comes mom, Elaine & this. JUMP!
We're still efforting the scenario at LAX on Friday when Anna Kournikova was photographed getting the handy treatment from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Was this a case of Kournikova refusing the full body scanner treatment or was she picked out by security for possibly transporting some WMDs back to Miami or wherever she was headed? Of course there is no special treatment during these tumultuous times. Feelin' Up Kournikova - JUMP!
Again, these baseball cap bank robbers keep killing us with their creativity. Normally, a bank robber comes in, makes his demand or passes a note, money is handed over and the transaction process is complete. But then we get Braves Hat Bank Robber and his buddy, Shorty. They have a weird plan that means, when caught, both will be doing hard time on felony robbery convictions. Nice to see Adidas get repped during one of these heists, though. Details - JUMP!
We're kinda digging this new idea from ESPN where they throw a Baseball Tonight set outside ballparks and let drunks yell at future hall of famers. They'll also get a few racists signs into a shot here and there. And then there is Schill-dog. He's never one to shy away from a little tussle with controversy. Take today when some guy called him out for that turkey neck blasting through a collared shirt. Schill-dog isn't afraid to throw down on Twitter. JUMP!
The 2011 British Touring Championship was held last weekend & reminded us that BC hadn't addressed Grid Girls in '11. We actually fired Kevin The Intern's assistant intern over it. Thankfully we noticed Lucy Pinder's Twitter account this week & a few Grid Girl shots. That sent BC Freelance Photo Editor Big Gay Rich into action. "Put together 55 photos of Lucy's rack for you pervs," Rich emailed. So friggin gay, yet damn important to BC. JUMP!
Just look at how the NY Post played the photo of Yankees fan and Libyan rebel holding Gaddafi's gold gun. Perfect placement. Perfect headline. Tabloid journalism at its best. BC used to be in the newspaper business. Want to know why newspapers are getting their asses handed to them? Old fashioned. That secret should be out by now. Spice it up a bit, boys. Go visit Newseum. Count the number of papers who showed the death photo. Then figure out who's broke.
The St. Louis Cardinals are three games away from winning the World Series and making one crazy bastard considerably wealthier. A St. Louis man laid $500 down on two bets picking the Cards to make the Series and win the Series on September 12. Vegas didn't think too much of the Cardinals odds at the time, so the payouts will be substantial. We run you through the particulars. Check it!
Ah, to be a mediocre baseball player with staying power. That's what former Oakland A's and Colorado Rockies shortstop Walt Weiss was and it paid him well. It paid him so well, in fact, he was able to afford 73 acres in Colorado. Now he wants to pawn it off for a cool $4 million. Hey, why not? It comes with it's own baseball diamond so you can do your Field of Dreams thing. We've got the photos. Check it!
What do we remember about Pat Hentgen's run as a right-handed pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays? Oh, maybe that 1996 season when he won 20 games and had 10 complete games on his way to a Cy Young Award. That was pretty much the end, though. He'd eventually make $37,000,000 over a 14-year career and then buy a house in Tarpon Springs, Fla. with one of the most worthless theater rooms we've ever seen. Pat, seriously, $2mm for that garbage? JUMP!
First of all, two distractions in this photo: mustache ride bro throwing the peace sign and blonde Top Gunner lining up drinks. Sure, we laugh our asses off at blackface Ron Washington guy with some powder under his nose. But there's something about Heather that's driving us nuts. Such as: would we have to rip that flight suit off or will it easily unzip? Is Heather wearing any panties under that flight suit? All logical questions from some Halloween pic. (via @babeslovebball)
Via BBC: "The BBC's Gabriel Gatehouse has spoken with the man who says he captured Col Muammar Gaddafi. The man was brandishing a pistol he took off the former Libyan leader. The fighter claimed that Gaddafi was hiding in a hole in the centre of the city and said "don't shoot". Meanwhile, Red Sox fan promises to bring the head of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad before Christmas. It really is a rivalry we can all get behind. Kudos to Yankees Nation.
Of course it isn't sports related other than the fact that a Yankees fan captured Libyan dictator Gaddafi. (Not even taking the time to look up how to spell his first name.) It's the story of the day and the week. Gaddafi goes from scrapbooking Condi Rice to being holed up in a drainage ditch where Yankees fan found him. Then the rebels kill him. Bad day, brah. Anyway, Twitter went nuts dropping the seven dirty words, which means our editors swing into action. JUMP!
If you're in the NBA and you're a real baller, you have to let everyone know by getting a badass back tattoo. Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is in the NBA, a baller and, of course, has a back tattoo. It is, perhaps, the most unoriginal back tattoo in the league, though. Why? Rondo jacked the Rolls-Royce logo and had it burnt into his skin. Check out Rondo and the rest of the NBA's back ink in this gallery. Jump!
UFCer Forrest Griffin broke up the monotony of another Wednesday in October with this on Twitter: Is think I might have a touch of the gay cus I actually go to yoga for the yoga.... Not the 40 chicks is sports bras. Um, dude, if you can look at the Ass-entials of Yoga Pants and just think a being in a yoga pose, you MUST BE gay. Then there was this from Griffin yesterday: Ive gotten way more viruses form Internet porn there I every got from actual sex (via @ForrestGriffin).
Big news this week from the world of UFC and MMA and it actually has to do with legendary card carrier Brittney Palmer. You might have freaked when Palmer missed a summer of UFC Ring Girl duties, but fear not. She was, as we noted a month ago, working on her art and going to school. In an interview with Fitness Gurlz magazine, Palmer says under no circumstance is she finished with her UFC gig. Oh, and did we mention there are new pics? JUMP!
You play some rec basketball. Used to wear those Strength Shoes (remember the Seinfeld episode?). But the vertical has always been an issue. Driving to the rack and dropping buckets for the college intramural team has been a nightmare. Well, whiteboy, we're about to make you even more miserable courtesy of 7-2 Roy Hibbert and his standing 48-inch box jump today at Georgetown where he's working out. Roy dropped this video on Twitter about 10 minutes ago. JUMP!
His 2010 Halloween costume stole a nation's heart. Little Ron Washington came out of nowhere to be the cult hero of fans who're smitten by little kids who look like 1970s burnouts. Liam Roybal is back and is kinda required to bust out the old costume even though he's growing up and the chicks aren't digging the same costume two consecutive years. Plus, the Rangers lost last year. Kudos to the news hounds at News8 Dallas for tracking down Little Ron. (Video at SportsGrid)
With the NBA firmly locked out and irrelevant, it was hockey night for blogger dorks. Special attention was given to Boston-Carolina (4-1 Hurricanes) where the penalty box got a little crowded during the 3rd period when the Bruins took 10 penalties, including Shawn Thorton throwing objects onto the ice. What else is new this morning? How about a football team beating an opposing coach after a high school game in Georgia. Oh, & Ark. St. beat FIU, 34-16. Let's get rolling!
