Our old buddy, Darren Heitner (2nd best blogger/lawyer combo on Internet; 1st is Friends of the Program because they once took us to an Ole Miss tailgate with cute coeds), was at Joe Robbie last night for the 2nd to last game in this football stadium's history. Marlins fan, obviously feeling nostalgic, came out in droves. There was actually a foul ball down the line and nobody moved an inch to catch it. Just think, those seats have witnessed two World Series. Suck it, Cleveland.
BC reader John D. wrote to us last week in reference to the Next Erin Andrews Project: "Have you not heard of Laura McKeeman? She works for Scout.com and fox sports and she does radio stuff but shes like the college football recruiting guru and there's not another girl that knows as much as her. Really incredibal." Then John provided the requisite personal website, Twitter & Facebook accounts. The EA Hunter put on his investigator hat for a look into this McKeeman chick. JUMP!
She's 6'9" and known as Isis The Amazon. She's kinda well known for her wrestling abilities, but calls herself a sports entertainer. She was supposed to be the next big 'thing' for the WWE, but one thing led to another and she was canned. But Isis The Amazon has continued to go about her business. Last night she just happened to be at the same club where New York Yankees rookies visited on Rookie Hazing Night. Yep, the boys were still in costumes for drinks with Isis. JUMP!
Um, what other sports blogs out there had boots on the ground last night in the Arizona Diamondbacks locker room for the N.L. West clincher? Busted Coverage did. Our Phoenix correspondent, Garrett, was there as Mark Grace took a shower via the Diamondbacks Gatorade bucket. (Watch the video, HERE; HT XTRA 910.com) Garrett also wants you to watch Sean Burroughs dancing like a foolish whiteboy. All in all, solid night for BC & the Diamondbacks. Let's get rolling.
Nothing like seeing the Yankees celebrate another A.L. East title while Kansas City holds Beanie Baby Bobblehead Night. Actually, last night it was Team Photo night for Royals fan. Anyway, the Yankees popped bottles and stud rookie pitcher Ivan Nova allegedly got hammered on the champagne. Anything else to report? Jeter made it rain on Kim Jones and Jorge Posada was all confused when he was used as a pinch hitter. Couple pics of the victory scene - JUMP!
Last night at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia it was comedy night for the Washington Nationals bullpen, according to Dan Steinberg at D.C. Sports Bog. It seems someone figured out where the ballpark signage crew keeps their extra numbers. Time to create a stampede down to Rick's Carryout. But, fear not, Mega Millions Nation. This just happens to be a hoax. Don't freak out and start rounding up $100s from co-workers. We have the real lottery values - JUMP!
The Nature Boy was in Boston last night to hopefully bust the Sox out of the funk that has allowed the Tampa Rays to get within two games of the A.L. wild card lead. He brought along a TNA championship belt and the classic Nature Boy entertainment value. That meant Ric was given the responsibility of introducing the Sox lineup. Ever the entertainer, he ended the lineup with at least three WOOOOOOOOs! He then watched the Sox split a DH.
Groupon, the site that loves to bombard your inbox with super-duper-can't-pass-up deals, has pretty much taken a giant machete and chopped off the head of Baseball History. Blood, brains & Harry Caray's balls splattered on the corner of Clark & Addison. Someone tell us it can't be true that Wrigley Field will be used as a giant drive-in theater (minus the Audis) in October to show 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' on multiple screens positioned around the ballpark. JUMP!
You know what's not sexy? It's simple - New York Mets' rookies in cheerleader uniforms. The underachieving ballclub had some fun last night with its annual rookie hazing by making youngsters look like they're about to partake in a gay porn in Chelsea. But these guys are troopers. They're able to laugh about being called up and becoming the Mets cheerleading team. You guys do realize these photos will live on the Internet? JUMP!
Now you can own your own piece of the Amarillo Sox -- their since abandoned mascot that looks like he's got a raging boner. That's right, this piece of baseball infamy can be yours for just $25,000. The mascot costume in all of its bonerrific goodness if up for sale on eBay.
There are some happy Texans today. Rangers first baseman Josh Hamilton blasted a grand slam last night, triggering a promotion for free carpet and countertops from an Arlington carpet store. The slam also inadvertently introduced us to the store owner's daughter, Morgan Fitzgerald. Aren't we lucky? Here are some pics so you can ogle her.
Missy Coles was just going along with her life as a buxom fitness model on the bodybuilding circuit. Then her BF had to go and tweet about her. That's it, bloggers figure out the puzzle. Suddenly Phillies' P Michael Schwimer finds his girlfriend lusted after by drunken, loser fools on the Internet. Of course you haven't heard of Schwimer. He was called up in late August, but figures to be with the big club next season. Time to update your WAG lists accordingly. JUMP!
Angels pitcher Garrett Richards may have one-upped the Washington Nationals and Stephen Strasburg's Papa Smurf outfit. Richards got to pose as Miss Bo Peep (we think), including his thick legs in stockings. It begs the question, who got the worse end of the rookie hazing, Strasburg or Richards? They both appear to be having more fun than should be expected. Check it!
The Washington Nationals may not be very good on the baseball diamond, but at least their an entertaining bunch. Sixteen rookies were required to dress up as Smurfs, complete with blue body paint and tight white pants on Sunday. Ace Stephen Strasburg was Papa Smurf and catcher Wilson Ramos was a very ugly looking Smurfette. For some of the strangest rookie hazing we've ever seen, check out this gallery!
Once again we are dumbfounded by the excess by which a baseball player lives his life. You think Adrian Beltre really needs 15 bathrooms for a seven bed house? You think Adrian drops his morning deuce in a different toilet for two consecutive weeks in the offseason? Mr. Beltre, who has earned/will earn nearly $88mm in his MLB career, is trying to unload his California mansion. The cost? Just $19.8 million. And the man cave sucks balls. JUMP!
It was announced less than 20 days ago that Jered Weaver signed an $85 million extension with the Angels. So it shouldn't come as a shock that upon inspection of his wedding registry - November 12 is the big day - that Busted Coverage should announce a big F-YOU to a guy asking for a $17 splatter screen from Great-Aunt Becky who can barely afford the damn cable to watch her multi-millionaire MLB nephew. Splatter screen - JUMP!
