Way back in 2008 Busted Coverage introduced Jessica Gysin to the Internets. Ms. Gysin became, and still is, the face of NCAA beach volleyball. Over the weekend we caught her on CBS Sports Network playing in a college volleyball tournament. That brings us to today and soon-to-be Florida State freshman Stephanie Pellitteri. She is the first known NCAA Division I beach volleyball scholarship recipient. Yep...pics...JUMP!
Our Busted Coverage Cribs series rolls along with a venture into the head of Scottie Pippen, who is best known for squandering his NBA fortune. How bad off is the former Chicago Bulls' legend? He actually had a yard sale earlier this year. But it's not all gloom & doom for Pips. He's sitting on a Fort Lauderdale house that he bought in 2000 for $1.34mm. The asking price in 2011 - $16,000,000! Who's dumb with cash now, homies? 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!
The tragic saga of Jay Buhner's B2B Estate rolls along, now nearly three years into its time on the Seattle housing market. Way back in July 2009 it was reported that Jay came off his 2008 listing price of $12,000,000 for his 7,500 sq. ft. pad that includes 80 acres of woods and places to gallop on horses. Now listed at $6.75mm, this beast is a steal. Step up, open the wallet and help Jay get rid of this ball & chain. JUMP!
Golfer Rory McIlroy and tennis superstar Caroline Wozniacki are sports newest super couple. McIlroy has officially announced his split from former girlfriend Holly Sweeney and was spotted with his lips on Wozniacki, but the important thing here is what Wozniacki looks like in a bikini. The next Tiger Woods and the world's #1 women's tennis player - doesn't get any bigger than this. JUMP!
The numbers cannot lie. Jimmer Fredette's rookie campaign at the American Century Classic Championship was a dude. Like worse than Charles Barkley dud. 83 - mostly sports figures - entered the tourney & only one guy walked away with the "Worst Golfer In Sports" label. Jimmer. How bad was it? Scoring a -30 (with the very relaxed scoring system) is nearly impossible, but Jimmer hit that mark. Barkley? -16 after 4 days of drinking.
Ho hum, Chris Bosh got married this weekend in Miami and the biggest news from the event was LeBron James and his shaved face. Seriously, for the 'urban' community this event is totally bigger than the Ben Roethlisberger wedding coming up THIS SATURDAY! But leave it to some rich white dude to be the guy responsible for uploading the only 'insider' pics from Bosh's bash. Repeat, a white guy. PICS - JUMP!
Whether it was the little chubby USA fan raising his shirt after a goal, Michelle and Barry eating a dinner on a historic ottoman in the White House (Michelle drinking a 312?) or a black guy in Uncle Sam gear at a bar, America was riveted yesterday. Personally, the 105-degree temps had our asses firmly planted on the couch. For one July afternoon women's soccer really mattered. It doesn't go away without one look back at the fun. JUMP!
According to our Twitter timeline this morning it's freezing at the British Open. Not that we've noticed since the Open has yet to come across our television. Just trust Twitter twits. Or just observe how Rickie Fowler is dealing with the elements. Cooler than school flat-bill cap, white poof coat, those awesome white pants and blizzard-proof down mitts. Those mitts - actually Titleist branded. See, you learned something this morning.
Here is what we learned about Jimmer Fredette's day of golf today at the American Century Classic: he's out of his league. As if being a bad golfer wasn't enough of an embarrassment, the ACC folks just had to partner him with Tim Tebow and Herm Edwards. Two holy rollers & Mr. Speech Pathologist. Snoozer. Meanwhile, Jimmer's girlfriend was being hounded by the horny bros walking the course. JUMP!
Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods' ex, has a new boyfriend. He's Jamie Dingman. He's rich, he's not terribly good looking and he's an opportunist, but he's the exact opposite of Tiger (except for the rich part). His new woman has an estimated $100 million fortune and she's ready to find some rebound meat. Looks like Jaime's timing couldn't be any better. Gold digger! JUMP!
It'll be the smallest ballpark in the MLB with only 37,000 seats, but will have two 600-gallon salt water fish tanks encased in bullet-proof glass. The Marlins (believe it or not) are trucking along with the new ballpark the city/county was pimp-slapped into building. The big questions for MLB is if anyone will care whether there is a new facility to watch the Marlins. Joe Robbie's upper deck has been closed & the Marlins are averaging 17k a game. Pics - JUMP!
A year after using ESPN for "The Decision" LeBron James spurned their awards show, the ESPYs, to return to the scene of the crime and play yesterday in a summer-league basketball game in Cleveland. It's probably a good thing though, since he was made fun of at the EPSYs most of the night. Watch Bron Bron's team get dunked on and The King miss yet another summer league jumper. Video...JUMP-JUMP!
Real Madrid is currently training on the UCLA campus for its upcoming friendly against the L.A. Galaxy and it has people in a frenzy. How big of a frenzy. You have to see this woman come out of nowhere to run in front of a Real golf cart on its way to/from practice. Of course there is a low-speed collision. Of course the lady goes flying. Of course the Spanish media was there to record it and as of 2:45 p.m. EST Marca.com has 428 comments on this video. JUMP!
Just as we were preparing ourselves for Debbie Clemens to take the stand in the Roger Clemens perjury trial, the U.S. government goes and screws up its case on Day 2. Seriously, a mistrial was just issued on Day 2! The government, today, played a video of Roger answering questions from Rep. Elijah Cummings. The video included pieces that the judge in this case had barred. The jury saw the video, Clemens' lawyers objected and Judge Walton just ended the case.
Thanks to Brian Wilson the ESPYs were watchable for like 15 minutes until Seth Meyers was done with his opening series of one-liners. Then they started handing out the hardware and it was time to bail. If you guys hate the Home Run Derby, how do you possibly sit through hours of ESPN coverage of an ESPN fabricated event. Did you watch Cowherd try to be funny on the red carpet? Absolutely horrid. In the end it was all about Wilson. And that's a good thing. JUMP!
