Since most of you this weekend have been laying next to a pool, drinking Mai Thais and nibbling on shrimp kabobs there's a good chance you missed all the fuss Saturday night at Dodger Stadium. Let's catch up on the news of how Chavez Ravine had to evacuate its upper deck after a fire broke out in a storage room, causing fans to think Frank McCourt was looking for his revenge. Photos - JUMP!
Finally! We'd been hearing about this Kirk Gibson taking a digger video from Friday night for a few days, but it had yet to be uploaded until last night. Our tipsters kept telling us that we needed to see Gibby going face first into the dirt at Chase Field. Well, we've now seen it and can confirm that this is right up there with Pedro Martinez launching Don Zimmer in the "MLB Managers Going Digger" category. Impressive feet, Gibson.
Imagine your luck. You go to a May game at the Ballpark at Arlington and the Rangers staff offers up the chance to walk through the dugouts - for FREE! Fans attending last night's White Sox-Rangers game took a free tour of the underbelly of the park rather than die. Smart move because as you'll see, after the jump, a wicked storm dumped piles of golf ball size hail on the field.
Yet another big night for fans at Citizens Bank Ballpark in Philadelphia last night as Chase Utley returned to the lineup to a standing ovation and Phillies superfan bringin' it like a champ. Of course Philly pounded out 14 hits on the Reds and Utley went 0-for-5. Order your very own Mets Suck shirt on Cafe Press for only $23. Get that shirt on a television broadcast and we'll run your photo. Deal?
Cam Newton spent his Friday at a school in Santa Monica, California telling the kids how to get the best deal from SEC schools if the kids are good enough to play QB in the legendary conference. He also told them that Mississippi State couldn't promise a big enough check to his dad so the family thought the best place for Cam's talents would be Auburn. BC also learned that Cam can rock a pair of Euro shorts. Totally getting a pair of these for the summer. Dude is on a role.
Keeping with our May tradition, BC watched somewhere around 5-8 minutes of last night's OKC 106-100 victory. Instead there was some House Hunters (hoping to catch a new Extreme Couponing) followed by last night's new South Park where Tea Baggers overrun a Fed Ex. The highlight came when white boy/wigger 'Playa' wearing his LeBron James jersey started grabbing his junk and holding a 9mm to heads. Three more screencaps of the hilarity - JUMP!
Yes, your loyal blogger finished up a Maria Sharapova post late last night, looked at a clock and raced to catch the final five minutes of Bulls-Heat. The timing was perfect because Omer Osik was about to get bludgeoned by Wade in a collision that left the Euro looking like he took a blade to the throat. We give you Dwyane's sliced forearm - AFTER THE JUMP - if you're into blood and the NBA.
It's one of the great mysteries in graduation cap history. How is it even remotely possible for Troy Polamalu to stuff that Samoan 'fro under the cap without cutting those million dollar locks? "I'm officially a USC graduate!" he wrote over the weekend on his website. "The majority of top picks in the NFL get drafted before they complete their college education. I truly love football, and it's such an immense blessing and privilege as an athlete to be given the rare opportunity to use those talents at the highest professional level, but it's certainly not a replacement for an education." Yeah, but what about the hair. Men, women and children want confirmation you didn't cut the hair. Alternative cap-n-gown angle...JUMP!
I was on a plane from New York City to Detroit yesterday afternoon and missed the Cubs-Giants afternoon tilt so maybe Busted Coverage is out of the loop on this one. Was yesterday a Napoleon Dynamite promo at Wrigley? Were the local hipsters throwing some sort of bleacher party for the seven-year anniversary of the cult classic? There are so many questions as to why this guy is incognito and still sticking around for the last out in an 11-4 blowout.
So the Los Angeles Angels had the bright idea to set another world record last night during a Tuesday night game against the...
Reggie Bush, on the other hand, has to watch his former nice, thick bass prance around the Mexican Rivera with her NBA boy toy. Advantage: Gabbert. [@BlaineGabbert]
Busted Coverage “5 Questions” Editor Joseph Student took time out of his busy schedule to file this report from an interview with big Boston sports fan and Playboy bartender chick Bethanie Badertscher about all things bars & sports. (Yes, we asked extra questions.)
We asked Saturday for a boxer to follow now that boxing has become just Pacquiao/Mayweather and a bunch of scrubs in the heavyweight...
We search TwitPics, Tweetphotos, YFrogs, etc. with hopes of finding photos that will put a smile on the drunk faces of Busted Coverage...
