There are strict requirements for any person interviewed on BC. The individual must be capable of telling a sports-related story and actually have favorite sports teams. Today we catch up with Penthouse Pet Aimee Sweet, a New England native who has interesting rooting interests. She's a Celtics, Patriots and Bruins fan. And a Yankees fan. Seriously. It's like one of the most taboo choices a Boston fan could possibly make. Her reasoning & a party story with Lonnie Paxton - JUMP!
Three Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and several NY Yankees took time this morning to visit a young girl's lemonade stand to help raise money for Special Olympics. But the big news for BC readers was the lemonade spilled on Kate Upton's skirt. Um, holy #$%^ that is a spectacular thing to wear to a charity event. Totally made Robinson Cano take notice and we know he's game for white girls. Just has to kick chubby Andruw Jones to curb. JUMP!
And to think we were sitting around the office this afternoon wondering what ever happened to journeyman, defensive specialist Doug Mientkiewicz. It came to our attention that a guy who played 12 seasons and didn't break 70 home runs (career) during the steroid season made $13,000,000 in salary over his years of service. Dude bought this Coral Gables, Florida house way back in 2003 and is ready to sell it for a profit. Details & the dining room - JUMP!
Twitter is going bonkers this morning over last night's Braves-Pirates possible mammoth blown call by umpire Jerry Meals. New replay angles show Meals might have been right. He says it was probably a blown call. At this point all we know is that the Twitter-verse is using Meals as its punching bag this morning. No matter which side you're on, the humor from these tweets will help you smile during yet another boring day at the job. Meals Tweets - JUMP!
We figured the Jonathan Toews chick, Gabrielle Velasquez, had her one-day Internet run yesterday and things in her life would go back to normal. Not so. Our inbox had more photos of Gabrielle waiting this morning. But there is a strange twist to who sent the pics last night. They came from an email account at Fletcher Jones Imports in Chicago. Yes, that's the car dealership where Ms. Velasquez works. Pics - JUMP!
Even if you hate the Brian Wilson beard schtick and/or Barack Obama, you must admit that yesterday at the White House was one of those moments. The Giants were in town to visit Barry and be congratulated for winning the World Series. We pray....PRAY....that Lincecum hit the head and burned a joint. And documented it. Baseball needs it. The White House needs it. And it would be great for Internet pagviews. More - JUMP!
Um, so this photo has had our attention all day. It's former Cincinnati Reds 1B Sean "The Mayor" Casey at last night's Poison/Motley Crue show outside Heinz Field. Dude was legendary in baseball for asking about opponents wives and he actually didn't want to get in their pants. He was just being friendly. And he was supposed to be religious. Like, "starts his day with the Bible and God." We love this guy and pray he didn't jump off the tracks. JUMP!
In honor of the St. Louis Cardinals AAA affiliate Memphis Redbirds' Organ Donor Night uniforms, we've dug up 30 of the dumbest, ugliest, stupidest, craziest, what-the-hell-is-going-on-there uniforms we could find. Nothing says minor league sports like forcing a .250 hitter into wearing a Harry Potter uni. Have a jersey that needs to be added to this list? Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yeehaw! Nothing like a minor league baseball promotion in Nashua, New Hampshire where the Silver Knights welcomed the Monkey Cowboy Rodeo to town Wednesday to entertain a few hundred people, according to the local paper. Gotta admit, there isn't much better in minor league promotions than monkeys riding border collies. As a bonus, one lucky outfielder will have the chance to make a catch in that whiz. FUN. JUMP!
BC was tipped off to Twitter-user and Denver sports enthusiast Cheryl Tweedy a few weeks back by Peter Burns Radio. We were told Cheryl doesn't pull punches with language (which we approve of) and is pretty cutthroat with her sports observations. Well, guess who was watching the Rockies' post-game show last night. Yep, Cheryl. And guess who was naked in the lockerroom? Rafael Betancourt & his dong just became very, very famous. JUMP!
Stephen Drew will be on the DL for a few after having his ankle snapped like a twig during last night's Diamonbacks-Brewers game. Listen, there are reasons why you don't run through a third base coach stop sign and this is one of them. Tough break, Drew. If you are queasy this morning we recommend NOT clicking through to the video. If ankles twisted backwards are your thing it's time to let this one roll. JUMP!
Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire probably isn't a fan of Japanese women's soccer, but he played the part today, wearing a t-shirt that says "I [heart] Japan Women's Soccer after losing a bet to Tsuyoshi Nishioka. Gardy promptly swore off ever making dumb bets with foreign players, unless it was for money, beer or a walleye sandwich from Target Field. More - JUMP!
It's hot here in the Midwest. Like burn you to a crispy chicken wing hot. But that hasn't stopped Phillies fan from invading the bleachers at Wrigley, according to our friends at Crossing Broad. On a slow sports day it doesn't take much to get the attention of the Internet, hence a debate. Better rack: man cans vs. fake cans? Debate amongst your coworkers and totally ignore her belly stretch marks. One more photo - JUMP!
Your move, Longoria. Three really big black dudes have been photographed with your future trophy WAG today and she might not get out of Bristol without a wedding band. Better send the private jet. Seriously, Evan Longoria sent this tweet to Morgan just before tonight's Rays' game: "once your done w your whirlwind tour let me know, and follow me! #Congrats." Favre Jr. His competition & the growing tweet chatter - JUMP!
Yes, we've created this Evan Longoria making a play at Alex Morgan and the Internets are sorta running wild with it. In today's Daily Dump we mentioned a Longoria tweet directly to Morgan about the Rays wanting her and Team USA to throw out a first pitch. That's called a power move. You pick out the hottest chick on Team USA & use your star power. Guess how soon Morgan accepted? Guess who has a boyfriend in Seattle? JUMP!
We're not going to get into too much WWE news because it usually is ridiculous and you guys probably could care less. But when you throw in the new WWE champion (yes, there is controversy with his title belt) takes his hardware to a Monday night Cubs game, BC takes notice. Add in CM Punk snapping pics of drunk Cubs' chick and you have a recipe for Morning Twitpic-age. So here you go, CM's night at the Cubs-Phillies game. JUMP!
