Bernard Hopkins fights Saturday night in Montreal against some guy named Jean Pascal. Yeah, snoozer. But in his day Bernard Hopkins was considered one of the all-time greatest middleweight boxers - ever. So when we found Julianne Hough performing a boxing workout this week in Miami it popped into our heads - "Guys care more about a hot chick wearing boxing gloves than they do a boxing title fight in 2011." Anyone care to debate? Hough - JUMP - PICS!
Take a hot Asian chick from Maine, throw her into the pages of Playboy and tell us she's willing to talk about her fascination with the Boston Celtics and we instantly send 5 Questions Editor Joe Student in for the interview. Would she like to play F, Marry, Kill with Boston's Big 3? You'll have to see for yourself - JUMP!
Police are getting closer to busting open the case of punks in Washington state who broke into Phillies' pitcher Kyle Kendrick's house and took a giant haul of 2008 World Series memorabilia. Tuesday night police pounced on one man who has a history of with law enforcement. He just happened to know where the ring was hiding. Full story of this crazy heist- JUMP!
Maria Sharapova, coming off a title at the Italian Open, gets rolling this week at the French Open and she'll actually have a sponsor buying space on her earlobes for the duration of her tournament. Tiffany, the legendary jeweler, has inked a deal which means Sharapova will give up her lobe to the company who'll (for the French, Wimbledon & U.S. Open) accessorize her ears with $3,200 diamond earrings. What's the big deal? Not much other than a chance to stare at an ear and think of how blessed an athlete is when a piece of fatty, useless skin is advertising real estate. PHOTOS! JUMP!
Now, before you fill our inbox with hate on that intro photo just realize we love the douchebags who make The Preakness what it is in 2011. Douchebags are our audience. They pay the bills. Using the word douchebag to describe the infield patrons at Pimlico is an honor. You are what you are. It's not that you even remotely care about horse racing. As far as handicapping goes, Preakness douchebags know more about handicapping how to pound 12 beers before 10 a.m. than they do a race. This year's race takes place Saturday in Baltimore. Once again you won't be able to bring your own booze, but feel free to smuggle in a booze backpack or two. Photos! JUMP!
Very rarely does Busted Coverage dabble in the MotoGP news market for obvious reasons unless some Grid Girl has a skirt disaster or a fan gets hit by a motorcycle. And the moto circuit is full of Euros that just bore us to death and never end up on ESPN. But, folks, all eyes on deck. Paris Hiton has a racing team that her handlers said would be a great idea and the bike even sports pink. Well, Paris Hilton Racing tasted its very first victory lane nectar over the weekend in Le Mans, France.
Our friends at Crossing Broad ran an innocent video yesterday of Chase Utley on a Clearwater, Florida rehab assignment where the MLB All Star was interacting with the locals. Pretty innocent stuff and we almost passed over the video, but then it struck us that this is a great example of Jersey Chasers In The Wild. If you've followed BC over the years you know that WAGs and Jersey Chasers provide us with plenty of fodder. But, we rarely see them in action. Rarely see how a Jersey Chaser operates. Never see her deploy the arm/hand/mind drones on a millionaire baller - until now. Video of these ladies in action...JUMP!
By now if you haven't seen the Astros fan evading security during his insane escape from Minute Maid Field, you've been in a coma. Kevin Wayne Crabtree was the guy behind the streak and has pretty much raised the bar to the next level for future fans running on playing fields. But what was behind such a stunt? Why attempt something that would end with an arrest? There's a very good reason from Crabtree and he told the Houston police department it was a bet with friends. Wait until you see the reason for the streak and Crabtree's history with baseball. JUMP!
14-year-old Nick Gilbert (cool Twitter account) took the stage in Secaucus, New Jersey last night as the representative of the Cleveland Cavaliers and stole the hearts and minds of millions of viewers with his designer glasses and a stellar bow tie. Whether you hate Dan Gilbert, his father and owner of the Cavs, that's for another day. Little Nick has suffered from nerve disorder Neurofibromatosis since birth, making it a feel good story that the teen walked away with the #1 pick in the upcoming draft. And that's where this story kinda ends. The NBA will eventually lock out its players and this sport is in for a huge labor battle. If you think the NFL lockout is ugly, you haven't seen anything. More pics of Nick's cool adventure...JUMP!
There was some hubbub about the Preakness putting its new mascot on display to Baltimore media this week. The dude - Kegasus - is an obvious play towards the white, drunk fratties who enjoy the infield at Pimlico. Ever been to Pimlico? You won't catch our asses going into that 'hood unless there is an infield party at the Preakness, hence the need for a stupid mascot to promote being a drunken fool. The big news with this Kegasus character? The slick nip ring. Smokin'! Video of half man/half Kenny Powers...JUMP!
Let's just say that the next time Finland is in contention for a hockey world championship you should reserve a flight for you and a buddy to visit Helsinki. The country is still drunk after Sunday's IIHF world championship victory and the partying that has lasted for two days. (Left) We have Finland goalie coach Pasi Nurminen going face first into the red carpet after a stellar climb down the stairs. (Right) We have the chick who decided to give her fellow countrymen a show during the street celebration (NSFW-ish). While the photos are epic, the face plant from Pasi is a can't miss. Video...JUMP!
As mentioned in yesterday's Cuff 'Em, the 2011 Bay To Breakers 12k footrace was held over the weekend and the BC editors have put together their winner's list for Best Costumes. For those of you not in the know, Bay To Breakers is in its 100th year in San Francisco and brings together the crazies, the techies and the downright out-of-their-minds together for a quasi-footrace. The object is to get drunk, have a cool costume and enjoy the sport of running or walking. Here are the best of the best costumes this year thanks to Sylvain & Tom.
"That sums it up, doesn't it," says the Fox Sports broadcaster as Mets fan wearing his crying baby mask heads for the exit after last night's extra innings 2-1 victory by the Marlins. Before you jump us for making fun of some dude with genetic issues, we're 99% that is one of these crying baby masks. If not, sorry brother.
As of this writing the Nats and Pirates are headed to the 9th with Washington leading 4-2 on what is a historic night in MLB 21st Century history. You are looking at $1 ticket, $1 hot dog and $1 peanuts night at a ballpark that is less than 5 years old and in a city where baseball was supposed to blossom into a force. Instead, you were pretty much begged to attend this game and as you can see from the following photos being posted on Twitter, the place was still practically empty.
Some in England are saying that a court order preventing reality starlet Imogen Thomas from outing a Premiership futboler for his affair with the Zoo bikini model could be a huge game-changer. According to The Guardian, some lawyers argued it could amount to the death of the tabloid "kiss and tell". Why this is happening now is unclear, but reports from the U.K. say that Thomas and The Sun are ready to name names, but the 28-year-old player filed an injunction which will prevent such a move. Not surprisingly, the athlete thought that giving Thomas a signed jersey and a 'please leave me alone' talking to would keep her quiet. His jersey wasn't enough and she's ready to cash in.
Most of the best Euro golfers who participated at this weekend's Players Championship were on a plane today en route to Spain where they'll participate in the Volvo Matchplay. Seems boring, but Ian Poulter had the camera out to show fans what it looks like when the Volvo Matchplay has a private 48-seat 737 picking up the golfers and caddies for the long trip overseas. The big surprise here, according to Poulter is that the caddies got to sit in the front, more exquisite first class where it seems the booze was flowing quite freely. More photos of the bird and a scenario you'll never live in your boring lifetime...JUMP!
