Tony Hawk jumped on Twitter today to tell his followers the big news. No, not another video game being released. The news is 31-years-old and goes back to a time when Hawk was still taking 2nd place in skating events. You see, Tony had a trophy returned to him by the people who bought his childhood home. To think, they didn't throw it on eBay with a Buy It Now of $1,000. Sucker! JUMP!
Former University of Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl doesn't have much use for his gigantic multi-million dollar home these days. Since he doesn't have a job, he probably can't afford the mortgage payments either. Pearl's Knoxville home can be yours for only $2.7 million. Ever wondered what it's like to have three laundry facilities in your house. Buy this pad. Here's what you get. JUMP!
Briefly - Aida Yespica is a Venezuelan-born model who is better known for driving Italian men nuts on TV, YouTube and in lad mags. She used to WAG for futboler Matteo Ferrari. They had a little curly hair WAG baby but split a couple years later. Then along comes U.S.-born Melissa Satta, who just happens to be the hottest chick on the planet. She's the new 'it' chick in Italy. Yep, Satta and Ferrari are drilling some balls into the five-hole, according to Italian gossipers. Yep, Yespica is pissed. WAR. JUMP!
How many hot cyclist WAGs do you know? The answer to the question is now one. British cyclist Mark Cavendish is dating glamour model Peta Todd. We've covered nearly all the possible sporting WAGs in the world but never a cycling chick. Multiple high-fives to Cavendish for being able to parlay his biking success into jumping in the sack with Ms. Todd. It's amazing she got through the grasps of Manchester United. GALLERY! JUMP!
The Chicago Tribune is reporting this week that the Field of Dreams house in Iowa is still for sale and the price of $5,400,000 has not changed and the owners have no interest in lowering it so you and the boys can destroy it. The field, built in 1988 by Universal Studios, has remained pretty much unchanged since Costner was told "People will come, Ray." 65,000 come each year. Time to build a t-shirt selling empire. Oh, and you get the two-bedroom house and the barns. JUMP!
If this incident went down at Yankee Stadium or Citifield it would be gossip page and Entertainment Tonight fodder. But, when Brooklyn Decker shows up with Andy Roddick at Great American Ballpark, it barely moves the Twitter world. It's not just that Brooklyn was in town & hanging in seats behind the plate with Roddick. It's that she was bored out of her mind with the Reds and Padres Friday night tilt. The SI swimsuit magazine cover model was actually reading a book. JUMP!
In case you didn't know, LeBron James is now on a China tour very similar to the one Carmelo Anthony, Shaq, CP3 and other NBAers went on in July. It's such a parallel trip that even LeBron had to get his obligatory panda picture. That turned into a fiasco as Twitter dorks are hammering him over his receding hairline. You know, in a way we actually feel sorry for this guy. Are there other NBAers on this trip with him? Not that we can see. Isn't the King supposed to have boys?
What was stranger yesterday in Milwaukee? Zach Greinke pinch hitting in the fifth inning or that he was wearing a special issue Brewers jersey that the team planned to debut TODAY! The Friday starter was called on to hit in a sacrifice situation after Marco Estrada gave the team five scoreless in a spot start. For some reason, Grienke came to the plate and there it was, SUNDAY'S jersey being worn on the wrong day. Today is German Heritage Day at Miller Park. So expect the team to run out of beer & knockwurst.
Just 7 days until the mega-wedding of the 21st century for E! Entertainment. The Kardashian-Humphries extravaganza is nearly here and the couple decided to get away for a relaxing final weekend before the craziness of marriage & camera crews engulf their lives. Of course one of the stupid sisters had to go along to Bora Bora because the more bikini action the better for E!. Just throwing this out there. Kim looking a little chubby wearing purple? Ask your wife/girlfriend to chime in. JUMP!
BC reader, Jeremy, obviously single or married and with little else to do on a Friday night, sent us this ESPN spelling fail last night at 10:12 p.m. EST. "See the attached picture and you'll understand that our schools can't afford to cut anymore funds," Jeremy wrote. Ahh, but it's not only ESPN blazing a trail of spelling futility. We went searching Twitpics and Yfrogs for other LLWS spelling fails and found this. JUMP!
Ah, the lure of the ballpark -- the lush green field, the crack of the bat, dogs, beers, peanuts and drunk, belligerent fans yelling at you and the team the entire game. Here's that woman at a Cleveland Indians game. A funny thing happens after she takes her shirt off and starts waving it around in the air, though. The rest of the stadium follows suit. Check the video. JUMP!
That fantasy you've been dreaming up where U.S. Women's National Team members Alex Morgan and Whitney Engen are together in a tub, well... dream no more! You'll have to work your way around a couple of pesky sports bras, but that's what your imagination is for. Plus, we've got a whole gallery of Alex Morgan in all of her hotness for you. JUMP!
Earlier this week we were reading about how Dana White was ripping a bunch of idiot MMA bloggers because they thought he fired Ring Girl Brittney Palmer. Yeah, probably not the biggest thing to worry about as the stock market dropped 600 points, but it's what drives pageviews. White said something to the effect that Palmer was concentrating on her artwork right now. Come to find out, the guy was serious. Um, Palmer really is an artist who can go wrist bra & Ali in a matter of minutes. JUMP!
In the summer of 2001, Randy Johnson was 36-years-old and striking out 372 hitters on his way to a Cy Young Award & World Series ring with the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was also the same year when Barry Bonds would hit 73 home runs. Major League Baseball was at the peak of its steroid & superstar era, yet during Aug. of that year a lanky Latino from the Bronx was the biggest figure in the sport & about to become the most famous name in modern Little League history. JUMP!
ESPN has gone balls-to-the-walls with its Little League World Series regionals coverage and of course we're watching for $*&^ like this from one of the games in Indianapolis. (By the way, yeah the infield is Dominican-esque. Indy had a watering ban.) We've just seen the continuing pussification of our American youth. Wonder why we're getting our asses handed to us in this crazy world? Watch how we intentionally walk hitters in Little League. JUMP!
Artist David Arrigo may not have a bunch of paintings hanging in fancy galleries, but you've probably still seen his work. Arrigo has painted some of the coolest goalie masks in hockey. His works range from the odd -- Angry Birds -- to the traditional. The one thing they all have in common is they look awesome. Check the gallery. JUMP!
