Our good friend and BC contributor Peter Burns hit us up on Twitter this afternoon to tell us his old homeboys from the San Antonio radio days tell him that David Robinson is selling his giant estate. The big news here is that The Admiral lived in a gated community so this is like trying to bust into Fort Knox to figure out the details. We know a few details on the pad: there are very high ceilings, a basketball/tennis court and plenty of neutral décor. JUMP!
It's rare for Stubby Clapp to get an appearance on Busted Coverage so he decided to take his argument with an umpire to the next level yesterday during a Single-A game in Troy, NY. Clapp, possibly perturbed by 3,000 screaming kids, loses it when it appears his player was hit with a pitch. The umpire says no. Clapp, a guy who only had 5 MLB hits in his storied career, is having none of the umpires $%^#. Video - JUMP!
Kudos to @mikeydangelo for this snag from Sunday's Pirates game where Starter jacket dude braved the heat with his 1993 coat that had been stored in the attic since Sid Bream retired. Why the coat? Cold? The heat index from Pittsburgh to Denver has only been 100+ for the past three weeks. If you know Pirates Coat Pete, email us his details and we'll do the rest. It's a must to get this guy some publicity for his suicide attempt. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey, all the douchebags are doing it! Get a leg tattoo of your favorite ballers face and you'll be the coolest douchebag on your block! But hurry, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James have already been taken, so act fast before all the awesome players are gone. If you are willing to get Briant Cardinal tatted on your leg, email us and let us pay for it. email@example.com
Remember when you dreamed of owning a photo of a shirtless, nearly-naked Wayne Gretzky posing suggestively on the Edmonton Oilers' ice as a young lad, his milky complexion and creamy thighs beckoning you to him? Well dream no more! You can now own this sexually-stimulating piece of photography! JUMP!
Ok, so the football probably didn't hit her in the face. Noted. But it made for one helluva intro photo for this post. The other story about Hilary And Mike Comrie in Mexico yesterday has to be the swimsuit she had shredded by TSA before leaving Los Angeles. Look at that mess. Very unique, but confusing because her sister, Haylie, is also wearing a black suit. Black headband = Hilary. The chunky one his Haylie. Photos - JUMP!
The headline should include "Here is what....Wrigley looks like....from the rooftops..." where you couldn't see Paul McCartney perform last night, but you were still amongst your hipster friends. The Beatle was in town on his North American tour and did what the Cubs can't do in late July - fill the seats. Somewhere there is a baseball purist out there shaking head over the shame associated with defacing the old girl with a concert. Pics - JUMP!
According to the Detroit Tigers’ in-game Twitter photographer: Dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio turned the #Tigers dugout into a ballroom floor.…
Kevin Love may play for one of the worst teams in the NBA (Minnesota Timberwolves), but he's still a hell of a player. So, when he says something, people listen. Love, who's doing duty as a beach volleyball player during the lockout, didn't pull any punches when he was asked this week about the Miami Heat. Sounds like someone might be a little drunk on the Cuervo tequila he's pimping. The quotes - JUMP!
The name Manny Ramirez wouldn't have crossed our minds on a lazy summer Friday if it wasn't for SportsFeeder1 and his research into Manny's whereabouts. With a piqued interest in the latest from Manny's retirement, we sent BC Photo Editor on a wild goose chase. Figure out what Man Ram has been up to. Well, it seems the disgraced 'roider has been hanging at the Fontainebleau and taking a flight to Toronto.
We figure this is the closest you losers will ever get to the caliber of a woman as Marilyn Monroe, so listen up. Some auction house called Heritage Auctions has a baseball on the bidding block with only 5 days remaining and it holds the touch of lips from the most famous WAG in sports history. We're talking lipstick marks from Marilyn Monroe and an autograph from Joe DiMaggio. Open up the wallet and splurge. The man cave deserves it. JUMP!
First of all, thanks to the staff at FanPhooey.com for working their Romanian wrestling sources to get this video. We're big in Croatia, but Romanian tipsters really haven't stepped up. If you'd like to join our Romanian street team, send us a message: firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyway, this is American Ellis Coleman going flying squirrel this week at the Junior World Championships. Euro dude didn't even see it coming! Video - JUMP!
Of course it was surprising to get the mail yesterday and find a piece of mail with a Los Angeles mailing stamp and no return address. Trying to rack our brain as to which road beef this might be, it became apparent upon opening the card that this was coming from the Kim Kardashian camp. Nope, no L.A. road beef for us named Kim. To our disbelief, Kim's handlers actually sent BC a card for that napkin we bought for her wedding - JUMP!
SHOCKER! Two NASCAR videos in one week on BC. That's a sign the sport is starting to do a better job making itself relevant. Remember, sports marketers, the more unique videos and photos on the Internet, the more important your sport becomes. Take this fight video. It could have been a fight at a carnival & it would have been worthless to the Internet. But NASCAR engines roaring & Hooters guy throwing bombs gets our attention. JUMP!
Didn't watch the MLS All-Star game this week? Yeah, you didn't miss much other than a group of MLS scrubs get destroyed by Manchester U. But at least David Beckham gave our friends at OutSports an indelible image of some pre-game stretching with Thierry Henry. Our friends at Caught Off Side have the full shot for those of you who get a chuckle out of Becks being bent over. Have at it.
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!
