Got a text message from our ESPN insider at 1 a.m. EST this morning: "This was the girl Cano showed up with," said the tipster. That was in reference to the Baseball Tonight set piece Cano did for ESPN after winning the MLB Home Run Derby. Why is the girlfriend news? We think it's going to show you Cano's maturity level. It seems he has officially moved on from blondes. Is it possible the legendary Cano has gone soft? We hope not. Photos - JUMP!
We had a sneaking suspicion that the RideNow Powersports Pool at Chase Park would become a focal point for last night's home run derby activities. But a guy jumping into the pool - with beer in hand - to snag a ball away from bikini chicks? Can't write that script. It happened and ESPN cameras gave the guy his due, resulting in YouTube videos of the fun. See the video and the reaction from the chicks - JUMP!
Sixers Jrue Holiday & Women’s World Cup Soccer Player Lauren Cheney May Be Most Wholesome Couple Ever
Philadelphia 76ers guard Jrue Holiday and U.S. Women's World Cup soccer player Lauren Cheney appear to be dating, but may actually be a pair creepy, saccharine robots with great athletic prowess made in a lab somewhere. Holiday is in Dresden where the women came through with a Biblical victory over Brazil. The triumph sent Jrue & Cheney into a Twitter love-making session. JUMP!
Now, before you guys destroy us for posting a "Hottest Rangers....Gallery"...gallery, you need to understand that we were in negotiations with infamous #FriskyFriday model @heathero14 before the dude fell out of the stands Thursday night. There is a time for mourning and then we move on. Our original goal last week was to sex up Bud Selig's all-star game. Heather was game. She owned a Rangers jersey and a shirt. Add a smart phone & we get this gallery. JUMP!
Someone wake us when one of these NBAers decides to plank Hoover Dam. Until then you'll be stuck with Wizards' center JaVale McGee clearing out a grocer's pizza freezer to make room for his 7-foot frame. This guy has been on a plank run over the last 10 days or so and this is by far his best performance. If your Newman's Own pizza smells like JaVale McGee's antiperspirant, this explains it. 7 Best JaVale McGee Planks - JUMP!
This tweet crossed the BC desk 30 minutes ago from Kissing Suzy Kolber's Jack Kogod: Text from my cousin: "Chris Berman just showed up to the W in Scottsdale with 4 20-something blondes. There are three sporting events where Boomer never ceases to amaze us. Super Bowl. Baseball all-star game. Jim Kelly golf tournament. Of course we're putting the pieces together on Berman's ladies. We know at least one blonde he's chasing. She's semi-famous. JUMP!
Boys, step forward (even if you are work) and admire this rare look at Hilary Duff in a bikini while on vacation today in Capri, Italy with husband Mike Comrie. How rare? Um, you might get one peek per year. And as a bonus, Duff is now sportin' some new abs and a bikini that could move her up at least 2-3 slots in our U.S. WAG rankings. As an added bonus, you get the Penguins' Comrie snapping shots of his wife. Comrie Twitpics? Stay tuned. Gallery - JUMP!
There will be plenty of attention paid to the RideNow Powersports Pool at Chase Field tonight during the 2011 MLB All-Star Home Run Derby. The novelty of hitting a home run in the pool, we're guessing, will create huge excitement from TV viewers hoping for a pool fight over a $10 baseball. It's perfect TV. Of course your buddy Todd will think he knows everything about that pool. Here are facts that will totally silence that know-it-all buddy about the pool in right-center.
Of course we're using the term overload liberally here. But this is Kate Upton. This is Kate Upton in the most ridiculous shorts we've ever seen on a baseball field. Guys, Jordin Sparks played in last night's MLB Celebrity All-Star Game and wore baseball pants. Erin Andrews, Kate Upton & Jenni Finch wore shorts and knee-high socks. We've officially seen the future and it should include Upton for at least the next 10-12 celeb softball games. PHOTOS! JUMP!
Our guy, Garrett, on the ground in Phoenix has been bugging us for weeks about writing something about the 2011 MLB All-Star Game. After at least 7-8 emails we finally told him to create an all-star drinking game because that's about the only way the BC staff can get through 9 innings of pitching changes & references to Albert Pujols. Garrett complied and promises this game will help make Joe Buck & Tim McCarver way less annoying. JUMP!
Let's get this week off an running with a look inside the locker room at last night's State Farm/ESPN/Presented by ABC/Chevrolet/Celebrity All-Star Softball Game, or whatever Disney is calling it this year. You'll now have a reason to watch reruns of the usually stupid game. Kate Upton was an honorary manager. So was Erin Andrews. And someone decided to put them in these outfits. Easily the best celebrity all-star game move of all time. PICS - JUMP!
We're not sure where Annika Sorenstam is hitting golf balls this morning but she brought along her son, Will, while mom hit a few shots. (It's the ladies U.S. Open weekend so we're trying to throw in a few stories to even out the coverage. Yes, the LPGA is quite boring.) This is literally the most entertaining piece of ladies golf pop culture we've come across since the Natalie Gulbis fishing photos. More - JUMP!
Want to know how Busted Coverage knows it's tough times for the Dodgers? Yes, we all know about the bounced checks. That's well documented. But you really know things are bad when the hot, local actresses have turned and are now openly rooting for the enemy in Dodgers Stadium. Odette Yustman did just that this week. Get used to it, Dodgers Nation. The hot chicks can't get off the bandwagon quick enough. JUMP!
Since it's the new fad to track down athlete wedding gift registry listings we figured it was time to check in with Stephen Curry & Ayesha Alexander, who are marrying July 30. This registry was slightly a tough nut to crack because Steph isn't listed as the one of the registrants on the Williams-Sonoma account. His mother, Sonya, is along with the future bride. The highlights: organic towels & a $120 salad serving bowl. More of our favorites from the list - JUMP!
Heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko let opponent David Haye do most of the talking leading up to their fight last weekend before manhandling Haye in the ring. Haye eventually blamed a broken little toe for his performance and boxing, once again, became a joke. Klitschko still isn't speaking, but his silent YouTube video taunting Haye's performance speaks volumes. JUMP!
Um, we've seen older WAGs make combacks, like when Brenda Warner went from looking like Ivan Drago to a busty Red Cross volunteer. Debbie Clemens has always been in superior shape thanks to admitted HGH use and an extensive workout regimen. The new pics speak for themselves for a woman in her late 40s. And NY media have been keeping a close eye on her during this trial. How close? They've been tweeting about her in a court cafeteria line. JUMP!
