Rich in Sterling Heights, Michigan sent us this earlier tonight: "Watching the game and couldn't help but notice Asian dude just chillin in his Mets jersey at GM 3 of ALCS. What the f%^& is up with that?" He's being called the Awkward Asian and is believed to be an Endy Chavez fan. Yes, those guys exist. Look, homeslice, at least drop the top button and lose the dress shirt. Maybe haul your ass up the stairs and get a white t-shirt. Name him: email@example.com
Philly blogs are going nuts over this photo allegedly of Ryan Howard on a Rascal at a Plymouth Meeting, Pa. Whole Foods. @Hadji484 is the photographer of record for this shot and doesn't add any context such as canes, food in the basket, etc. For those not in the know, Plymouth Meeting is white suburbia, exactly where rich baseball players would live. Crossing Broad says Howard lives near this exact store. With the Eagles 1-4 this should drive talk radio the rest of the week.
BC reader Brandon sent a message this afternoon with news on how Front Row Amy is blowing up with the Milwaukee media. You might remember Amy from last week on Deadspin where she her rack became the Rally Towel from Brew Crew fans. Amy's boobs start bouncing and good things happen. Anyway, the TV dorks wanted an interview last night & of course Amy obliged. NBC 4's Charles Benson had the celebrity beat & met Amy's rack face to face. JUMP!
Sad, sad, sad night for Phillies fan. Sure, Diamondbacks fan is kinda disappointed, but they weren't supposed to be a Dream Team with the Dream Team Pitching Staff. Remember this piece on Philly's pitching staff in the NY Times Magazine? Remember how the offense couldn't possibly be shut down? Anyway, moving on, a big steaming pile of football on tap today. BC & Coed are in Knoxville for UT-UGA. Here is your complete TV listing for today.
We've got a hot Texas Rangers fan celebrating her team's AL West championship the only way you can -- by popping balloons with her ass. Oh, wait... maybe there are other ways to celebrate. Anyway, we've never been big into the whole balloon fetish thing, but we''re reconsidering after seeing these videos. Don't worry, they're SFW and we highly recommend you check them out. Hit it!
The Detroit Tigers upended the New York Yankess to earn a spot in the ALCS last night and they had a fitting celebration. It included goggles, Victor Martinez's son, milk, reporter Tom Verducci almost losing an eye and, of course, tons of champagne. We went and found the best of. Here are the photos and video of the Detroit Tigers ALDS celebration. Check it!
San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum is accused of $200,000 worth of property damage and squatting by a former landlord. The hurler was hit with a lawsuit this week seeking $350,000 in damages. Among other things, Lincecum, or someone who was in his home, allegedly destroyed or stole quite a few items in the furnished apartment. We've got all the juicy details and the complaint for your perusal. Check it!
Get knocked out of the playoffs and get a new buddy to hang out with for the rest of the fall and winter. Rays' manager Joe Maddon tweeted this afternoon: "First roster addition of the offseason. Winston Churchill Maddon the 1st." We dare you to say this dog isn't going to destroy Tropicana Field. Dare you. Totally going to go Schottzie like Marge Schott's old St. Bernard. Licking his balls in front of NY Times reporters. Dropping a deuce in front of Jaime Maggio. Oh, it's on.
Of course it has been a long time since our last installment in the "Baseball Cap Bank Robbers" series. To be honest, the robbers were getting too boring. Way too many Yankees and Raiders hats. For some reason today seemed like a great day to see what was up with the unemployed jerkoffs. We're into this series for obvious reasons. What makes a robber go with a certain hat during a robbery? Why one team over the other? Today it's the Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball hat. JUMP!
Seriously, we didn't know that Jason Isringhausen even pitched this year for the New York Mets. No clue. Thought this guy was long gone from the MLB, but now read that he's wanting another contract in 2012. Um, somebody has burned through his cash. Chew on this: Izzy has made just under $60mm in his baseball career. Guaranteed cash. Now he's unloading his $5mm Tarpon Springs, Fla. house. To say it's gaudy is an understatement. JUMP!
First of all, imagine living to be 97-years-old. Then imagine being a Brewers fan all those years. The team didn't even become the Brewers until 1970 when the Seattle Pilots moved to Wisconsin. In other words, being that old and having only watched your team in one World Series sucks. There have only been four playoff appearances. Two in the 20th Century & then 2008, 2011. Now imagine thinking someone stole your remote. Time to call 9-1-1! JUMP!
Pretty sure that's a chick. We'll just pretend the hair is pulled back and she's with her mom during yesterday's Diamondbacks victory in Game 3 over the Brew Crew. In other baseball news, the Rays are eliminated and the Yankees are probably going to eliminate the Tigers after that serious goes 2-2. The Daily News went with a simple, "Back In It," headline while the Post took another jab at A.J. Burnett with the "Mr. October" backpage. Let's get rolling!
Last night at Game 3 of the A.L.D.S: Park in Greektown, walk towards Ford Field/Comerica & about two blocks from the ballpark the scalpers start routine. "Who needs tickets?" It was explained that we just needed into the park. "Cheapest you got," was our message. "$160 lower level," responded one. Keep walking. Another dude says be careful, lots of fakes floating. Now near Cheli's, normal looking Detroiter with a SRO. A quick $60 & we're in. JUMP!
It's not our normal routine to check the New York headlines but couldn't pass up a peek after the Yankees went down 2-1 in the ALDS. 99% of Yankees' fans hate A.J. Burnett and now he gets the ball tonight against a Tigers lineup that is actually getting production out of Ramon Santiago and Brandon Inge. “The weight of the world isn’t on his shoulders,” Mark Teixeira said of the erratic right-hander whose last start was Sept. 25. “It’s on our shoulders.” Let's get rolling.
Former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa, or as we call him White Sammy Sosa, is raising the bar on creepiness once again. He still has the white face, but now we know he shaves his chest. That's right, white skin and as little hair as possible. Well done Sammy! In honor of the weirdo known as Sammy Sosa, we present this latest installment of Greatest Moment in Sammy Sosa White Face. Check it out!
How do we know Busted Coverage has a special power over hot women these days? 1. They'll actually email us. 2. They think we're witty, funny & have a great sense of humor. 3. They'll actually shoot exclusive photos of themselves wearing their favorite team's jersey. That's like an Internet trifecta for a sports blogger. That's how we met model/actress Kerry Garvin. She looked us up and kinda wanted to give the Rays some inspiration during the playoff run. JUMP!
