It's Manchester U. vs. Barcelona tomorrow for the 2011 Champions League final and none other than Fox (your network channel) will carry the game 2p.m. EST, which is huge news. The two clubs met in an intense 2009 final with Barcelona winning 2-0. We love the on-field action in the UEFA Champions League, but the real action will be in the stands and outside Wembley where the fanatics will be up to their shenanigans. Here is our tribute to these fan bases and the crazies who'll make this a can't miss event. Photos! JUMP!
Many of you punks aren't old enough to remember when the Indianapolis 500 was one of the most important sporting events on Earth. It's true that the buzz factor for the races have subsided with the rise (and now fall) of NASCAR. Still, upwards of 400,000 people will trek to the Speedway and 150,000 will get wild in the infamous infield Snake Pit. Never heard of the drunken debauchery that is the Snake Pit. Let us show you a few photos - JUMP!
There is an Associated Press story out this week saying how fans are now getting drunker, stupider (is that a word?) and acting more idiotic than ever. And they pay someone to do this research. We've been MLB '11 "The Season of Weird" since early April when crazy idiots were popping up on a nightly basis. Where you been, AP? You slackers are late to this kegger. Just this week we've had Indians chicks shotgunning beers behind home plate and now we have Phillies fans going Cinemax behind Jay Bruce. Someone name boob grab chick and fire away with a Facebook account! JUMP!
Team Busted Coverage had our intrepid reporter Steve at that Sobe event that was held yesterday in New York City featuring the likes of Hilary Duff, Kate Upton and Jessica Szohr repping the product & talking to Internet dorks. The PR reps even let us have a quick Q&A with the stars. Steve busted out the sports questions and we actually got Hilary Duff (married to NHLer Mike Comrie) on the record telling us the city with the best NHL fans. Her controversial response - JUMP!
You want to see what happens when a Major League Baseball game goes 6 hours and 11 minutes? Last night's Reds-Phillies game didn't end until 1:19 this morning with the Fightins winning 5-4 in 19 innings. It was the 6th longest game in Phils history and longest (in terms of hours) in Reds' history. Even more impressive was 2B Wilson Valdez joining Babe Ruth as the only player in MLB history to start a game in the field and become the winning pitcher. But what really shocked us were the amount of Phillies fans that legged out the marathon. Do you people have jobs? Photos! JUMP!
Finally! We'd been hearing about this Kirk Gibson taking a digger video from Friday night for a few days, but it had yet to be uploaded until last night. Our tipsters kept telling us that we needed to see Gibby going face first into the dirt at Chase Field. Well, we've now seen it and can confirm that this is right up there with Pedro Martinez launching Don Zimmer in the "MLB Managers Going Digger" category. Impressive feet, Gibson.
The BC tip hotline lit up this afternoon with a call from area code 216, which happens to be Cleveland. The tipster, who wishes to remain unnamed, wanted to fill in the blanks on our story this morning of the chicks putting on a beer shotgun show during the 9th inning of last night's Red Sox-Indians game. The full reasoning behind the shotgunning, according to the tipster, after the jump.
The news of Kim Kardashian (also referred to on Busted Coverage as The Giant Ass) and N.J. Nets forward Kris Humphries official engagement popped into our inbox like 30 minutes ago. Then there were 3-4 follow-up emails detailing her sisters excitement. Of course the media blitz is on. Magazines will sell. TV shows will follow. The wedding will be a spectacle. A pregnant Kim Kardashian should be a treat to look at. Etc. The engagement photo motherlode - JUMP!
We've heard of strange reasons to pick a college and then there is Olu Ashaolu and his thinking behind transferring to Oregon to finish out his basketball career. The food. Olu was smitten with the grub at The Original Pancake House in Eugene. This is quite possibly the first time in the history of recruiting that pancakes and the other hangover food at a greasy spoon has helped a basketball team. You have to read what Olu said about his recruiting visit...after the JUMP!
It's Tuesday so it's time to show you guys the 2011 Preakness infield photos we could find. Our editors did their best, but the normal craziness at Pimlico seemed to be subdued. It's unclear why the party was so dull. The booze was flowing as it always is, but no fights or drunks getting arrested popped up. There were a couple of keepers in the pic department, such as the planker giving that cooler a nightmare. Here are the best photos we could find. JUMP!
So Ray Allen is having a little trouble selling his 10,000+ sq. ft. Seattle pad, even at the lowered price of $3,700,000. Your mortgage on this 5 bedroom, 6 3/4 bath home with 20% down will only run you just over $16,000/month. But just look at all you get: private well irrigation, 4.5 acres, pool, putting green, jacuzzi, a killer barbecue and a theater in the basement. Get a better look at what you're buying - JUMP!
Remember how we told you Anna Kournikova is selling her house? Now we know why. The tennis starlet is set to become a trainer on The Biggest Loser. Hear that sound of potato chips being shoved down our throats? Yeah, we're busily preparing to add at least 325 pounds so we can have Anna scream at us with that sexy Russian accent while we nearly die on the stair climber. Full details of the biggest sports/primetime television news of the 21st Century - JUMP!
It's good to see everyone made it through The Rapture and returned to work this morning full of energy and excitement for life. Clippers center Chris Kaman made some news over the weekend, thanks to his pre-Rapture buying spree at a gun store where he had cameras snapping as he felt up some new weaponry to ward off those responsible for the end of the world. What we really learned about Kaman is that this guy really is the Ted Nugent of the NBA and his Twitpics prove it. JUMP!
We're busy compiling the best infield photos from Saturday's Preakness race but thought we'd get the party off and running with Tank Top Dude and his sweet cherry red shades. If you have a photo that should join our Preakness '11 Infield Madness gallery, email us. Have a sunburn photo that is sweeter than this guy? Email us. firstname.lastname@example.org
San Jose got back in Western Conference Finals last night with a 4-3 victory and the Orange/Teal Men made an appearance. Yes, San Jose totally ripped off the Green Men idea and pretty much bombed according to the Twitter rumblings we tracked overnight. Emily Gross typed, "What's with the Orange Men in San Jose? Does no team have originol [SIC] ideas anymore? @TheGreenMen are way better : )." See for yourself what all the fuss was - PHOTOS - JUMP!
There are rain delay antics and then there are the videos turned in this week from the Davidson vs. Clemson rain delay that pretty much put all competitors to shame. When's the last time you saw human bowling or cage fighting/wrestling rings made out of Clemson baseball players. Or, our personal favorite, Clemson players doing a skit where they recreate a scene with a player dropping a deuce. This is baseball rain delays at their best. Multiple videos! JUMP!
