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!
For those of you losers who've never spent a sports weekend in Detroit, mark it down on the must-do list. Of course the ride from the airport isn't going to impress you. Of course the ride north on I-75 will take you past an America that America has long forgotten. But the bond that D people have is sports. Fighting the Yankees. Coming back on the Cowboys. This is where sports is happening right now. Tonight we head into the beast for Verlander-Sabathia. Wouldn't dare miss it.
Of course BC introduced you to sideline reporter Kristen Ledlow and us giving her the title of "...Future Erin Andrews." She was working last night's Florida-Alabama snoozer for ESPN Radio and ran into a couple out-of-work-loser NBAers before the game. Oh, look, there's former Gators Al Horford and Joakim Noah hanging on Ledlow. And Noah's just destroying that necklace/Red Bull combo. Ledlow's gonna be huge. We warned you. JUMP!
As we've come to expect from St. Louis, some dimwit posted a bunch of "St. Louis Cardinals 2011 NL Central Champions" posters around the team's locker room before they celebrated their Wild Card berth. We suspect the Milwaukee Brewers, who finished six games ahead of St. Louis, might have something to say about that. Anyway, here's a gallery of the Cardinals celebrating whatever they think they won. Check it!
If you don't have anything going on tonight we suggest you tune into Versus for UFC and a heavyweight fight that'll feature the biggest height difference in UFC history. Chew on this: that short dude is Pat Barry (5-11, 243). He'll fight the mammoth Stefan Struve (6-11, 261). Things get started at 9 EST. We're trying to figure out what's more shocking, a 5-11 243-pounder or a dude that's 6-11. Tim Sylvia is 6-8. Anyway, find time after the college games get out of hand. Let's get rolling!
Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas may not be so pimp on the basketball court anymore, but he's dressing up as one off it. Thankfully, we can look forward to much more of Gil's clown antics, since it doesn't look like there's going to be an NBA season. Check out the full story of Gilbert Arenas' pimp suit and the full-body photo right here. Bang it!
Do yourself a favor at some point this evening if you haven't already done so. Go watch this video. Cooper Stone is the son of deceased fan, Shannon Stone, who fell to his death trying to snag a ball thrown by Josh Hamilton earlier this season. The family had to deal with the loss of a father and husband, while Hamilton has to live with the guilt. We dare you to watch this and not get a lump in your throat. HT: SportsGrid & @BubbaProg.
It was a stellar week from the Brooklyn Decker-Andy Roddick camp due to the story of how the hubby tends to lose his wedding ring. The wifey had to explain how the meal ticket is on his third ring after losing the others. It's one of those 'stop, listen, LOL a little bit' and back to looking at photos of hot chicks stories. We don't want to hear that she's married. Men, especially BC readers, want to hear you talk about getting divorced and needing a loser to hang with & watch NFL. JUMP!
The Boston Red Sox melted down like no other team ever has before, blowing the biggest lead for a playoff spot entering September in history. While we're fairly pleased the Sox won't be in the playoffs, BC sorta feels your pain. We also enjoyed a laugh or two at your expense. So, in honor of your meltdown, here are the best A.L. Wild Card collapse e-cards. Way to go, Boston! Enjoy being loozahs this winter. JUMP!
They're comparing amputee sprinter Jonnie Peacock to 100-meter-dash world-record holder Usain Bolt in England. While that comparison may be absurd, it does make you wonder how fast the guy could be on two legs. Or, if he could beat Bolt on only one. These Brits might be crazy with their comparisons, but Peacock's story is still pretty cool and what the hell? We might as well start the debate. Chime in!
It's a night in Major League Baseball history that won't soon be forgotten. ESPN is already firing up the 30 for 30 documentary team. Dan Shaughnessy would totally like a do-over with what will go down as his very own Bill Buckner moment. Four teams had a shot. 3 of the 4 games were unreal. One rain delay. 2 extra inning games. Newspaper deadlines missed. Big headlines. Fans crying. Fans with four TVs in their living rooms. The night had it all. Recap - JUMP!
We didn't know who Belen Mozo was before today, but we're already a big fan. The LPGA rookie will appear naked in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue. To get you tuned up, we opened the file on Mozo and pulled a totally sweet-ass gallery of our own. Who's the big winner, besides our bank account when you keep clicking? That's right, you are! Now get in here and meet your new favorite golfer! GO!
Those of you who watched the 30 for 30 documentary, Catching Hell, last night on ESPN know how riveting it was for a character like Steve Bartman to collide with Chicago Cubs baseball history. The character had to be in the right place at the right time. The ball had to find him. He had to be wearing those headphones. The Halloween costume. And in a matter of seconds, Steve Bartman's life changed forever over a stupid foul ball. Twitter responds - JUMP!
Swear. One more MLB team gaying it up and we're done for the day. Only so much MLB man-ass a straight blogger can take in one day. Anyway, last night was Cleveland Indians' Rookie Hazing Night. And of course the team has like 32 rookies on its roster so the veterans had to come up with a universal outfit that would be quick, cheap (anyone make over $1mm on this team?) and easy. Party Boy underwear time! Looks like a tribute to Grady Sizemore's coffee cup. JUMP!
The Boston Red Sox are now headed to the 162nd game of the year tied with the Tampa Rays for the A.L. East Wild Card, but the team isn't taking this journey so seriously that rookie hazing has been thrown out the window. Leave it to Heidi Watney, sideline reporter extraordinaire, this week to upload photos of rookie shortstop Jose Iglesias in his best NYC Pride Parade costume. Look, the best way to handle a huge playoff race collapse is to keep a smile on your face. JUMP!
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.
