NASCAR this weekend finally busted through the mainstream Internet buzz barricade that has kept the sport on the outside of the national conversation, but Lebanon, Tennessee Pastor Joe Nelms broke through to the other side. Joe's pre-race Nationwide Series invocation prayer before Saturday's Nashville race will forever be known as the Ricky Bobby prayer. Joe had racers, fans and observers in tears with this prayer. DO NOT MISS THIS. Videos - JUMP!
Our dream of Kim Kardashian going to Vegas this weekend and having her giant ass deflated during a skydiving incident over the Stratosphere didn't come to fruition. Instead, how about a giant stuffing of Bachelorette/Bachelor weekend fun from the Kardashian/Humphries camps? Oh, yes please. Over/Under on how many years Kris Humphries can take of this garbage? 1 year, 9 months. Midget male stripper - JUMP!
Let this be a lesson to all you bullies who pick on gingers. You might get your ass kicked or even killed if you mess with the wrong red. Take Richard Starks (pictured). He was part of a drunken rager over the weekend where some 19-year-old MMA punk was calling him ginger and saying he had "weak knees." Starks, who likes himself some Megadeath and Iron Maiden, went ballistic & killed Samuel Smith. Details - JUMP!

So we were three days off with our prediction of the NFL and the NFLPA settling their new 10-year CBA. Say hello to your 2011 NFL season this morning and the craziness this week will bring. NFL.com writer Steve Wyche breaks it all down for you. And no, that Brett Favre garbage isn't true. First lesson in fandome is to never believe what Philly radio blowhards are selling. BC is just getting its Monday rolling. Plenty of NFL to come. Stay tuned.
Yes, the picture and video quality you are about to see won't impress too many HD dorks. But this is from Manila, Philipines where NBA stars, led by Kobe Bryant, have brought a basketball Mixtape to town. How big of an event was this for the island nation? Manny Pacquiao was there to hang with Kobe and see some sick dunks. What he got instead was a Kobe wrap around dribble that nearly caused the locals to rename their children. Video - JUMP!
Nothing like entertainment show dork Billy Bush dropping a huge entertainment/sports-world bomb in the early morning hours of a Saturday night/Sunday a.m. According to Bush, "Kristin cavallari and jay cutler engagement is off. Source super tight." Of course this is huge news for Busted Coverage. We recently dropped $5 on a Melamine Reamer off the couple's wedding registry. Um, that better be returned. ASAP. More details - JUMP!
It's official, there is a Mrs. Roethlisberger. Of course the BC office had $500 on the 'He Calls It Off +260' moneyline. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette went front page with the news with this playful story of the locals celebrating with front lawn tailgate parties. Meanwhile, the Tribune-Review busted out its best 1998 newspaper design with this above-the-fold cheesy McGee front page. So far we haven't heard of any arrests. Stay tuned. Photos - JUMP!

That white guy is famous movie star Hugh Jackman. He writes on his Twitpic account: "And I thought I was tall! so cool 2 meet Lebron. only time I have seen my son star struck & me too" Hugh, obviously high on Bron Bron aura, forgets to add that he promptly told his son that if he ever catches the boy wearing his hat like that there will be a Wolverine on his ass like white on rice. Look for LeBron in a Take A Sheet commercial. It's coming.

In honor of the St. Louis Cardinals AAA affiliate Memphis Redbirds' Organ Donor Night uniforms, we've dug up 30 of the dumbest, ugliest, stupidest, craziest, what-the-hell-is-going-on-there uniforms we could find. Nothing says minor league sports like forcing a .250 hitter into wearing a Harry Potter uni. Have a jersey that needs to be added to this list? Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ever since starting the Busted Coverage Cribs® series a few weeks ago, there have been glaring issues with each house - in our eyes. Maybe it's the kitchen, or the pool area. But today's subject - Jared Allen - is unloading what has to be the biggest bore-fest house yet. Carpet in Scottsdale? The average temp. from Memorial Day to Labor Day is over 100-degrees. No thanks. The Vikings DE wants $1.4mm. We'd give him $950k & tear out the carpet. JUMP!
On Wednesday, we introduced you to the lovely MMA Ring Girl Iryna Ivanova who also happens to be an Arizona grad working on her M.B.A. She's also making her world magazine debut as Playboy's Miss August 2011. Lucky ass 5 Questions Editor Joe Student got to work on his Russian pickup lines and he learns about a specific NBA player Iryna would like to see naked. Dwight Howard, you have an admirer. JUMP!
People do stupid things to cars to celebrate their favorite athletes or teams while most of us just attach the car flag to the window on game day. Today we get a look at the Paul Pierce El Camino that screams load of mulch in the afternoon and chick machine after dark. Ladies, don't resist the urge. You know riding in this will be the highlight of your single life. Jump in and let this El Camino show you a good time. JUMP!
Yesterday we learned that Mavs gunner JJ Barea had knocked up his Puerto Rican girlfriend, Zuleyka Rivera. Yeah, she just happens to be the 2006 Miss Universe. BC also recently heard through the gossip sites that Mavs' Rudy Fernandez has been spending quality time with the lovely Helen Lindes. She just happened to be 2nd runner-up in the 2000 Miss Universe competition, giving the Mavs a huge advantage over other NBA WAGs. JUMP!
You have no idea how stuffed our email gets with random photos of ridiculous ‘stuff’ that really has no immediate home on Busted Coverage. The solution was to hire an editor who will bring you the best of the best from the inbox. Have a photo for this series? Send it in. If it makes the cut, it’ll be published. We wind down the week with one more WTF to ease you into the weekend. Enjoy happy hour. You deserve it. JUMP!
So the guy who Cedric Benson destroyed on a Austin street corner over the weekend isn't just some dude he used to run with that turned into an enemy. The guy - Clavens Charles - was close enough to Benson that he was at the NFL running backs July 4th house party that we documented a couple weeks ago. The two were bros. Beach party bros. House party bros. Close enough bros that Charles would hang in Cincy. More - JUMP!
Yeehaw! Nothing like a minor league baseball promotion in Nashua, New Hampshire where the Silver Knights welcomed the Monkey Cowboy Rodeo to town Wednesday to entertain a few hundred people, according to the local paper. Gotta admit, there isn't much better in minor league promotions than monkeys riding border collies. As a bonus, one lucky outfielder will have the chance to make a catch in that whiz. FUN. JUMP!
Demetrio Crespo isn't the smartest bank robber in Florida bank robbing history. Dude decided, this week, that the only way to get out of debt was to put on his Fall Sunday best and bust up a Bank of America for $2,700. But there was a huge problem for Crespo: the getaway plan sucked and the costume was about as bad as it gets. A jogging jacket zipped up to your neck at 4 p.m. in Florida? C'mon, chief.

It's unclear where Evgeni Malkin got his keyhole forearm bra t-shirt but it was kinda creepy and is probably from some famous Russian designer. Kudos to 25 Stanley for the grab even though we're not told where it comes from. Maybe one of our Russian readers can fill us in. As many of you know, there are two things Busted Coverage enjoys in sports: keyhole peeper shirts and NHLers wearing them. It's Friday, let's get to the finish line!
About an hour ago we spoke with Jeremy Shockey, our source this week, who told us on Monday that the NFL lockout would virtually end today. The owners have indeed approved a 10-year CBA tonight via a 35-0 vote. Now the contract goes to the players. Shockey tells us tonight, after speaking with Drew Brees, that some teams will allow players& free agents into team offices Saturday to take physicals. More - JUMP!
The folks at Busted Raquet managed to snag this photo before tennis player Janko Tipsarevic could delete it from his Facebook account earlier today. Who is the guy with his hands up? Oh, just Novak Djokovic. Maybe you've heard of him. Yeah, not exactly the best image to convey to little kids in Connecticut. This incident probably would have left the Internet radar if Janko would have remembered to delete his yFrog pics. JUMP!
While the NFL and players continue to dick around with their labor agreement, we found some photos of actual NFL players in uniform from today. Are they getting ready to play some ball? Of course not! They're just shooting a commercial for Verizon, but it's your very first look at J.J. Watt in a Texans jersey and Mark Sanchez ready to go 6-for-23. JUMP!
• Minka Kelly looks fine, even when shooting a gun • Ashley Tisdale is continually proving she is hot • Amy Childs likes to show off her big talents • Liz Leyda knows how to buy some nice things • Have to love the new Audrina Patridge campaign • Alba Carrillo + Lily Cole = Awesome • Maria Menounos has some sexy swimsuits • Nikki Rhodes likes to show off her cleavage
Imagine out shock today when a tipster (Ryan in Portland) sent us an eBay auction and it was for an Aston Martin supposedly belonging to Arizona Cardinals QB Derek Anderson. Our initial reaction was, "That's impossible. The guy has to drive a Ford F-450." But it's true, Horseballs is unloading this sick ride for a Buy It Now of $73,500. Still efforting if this is a cash play or if he's upgrading from the 2007 model. Details - JUMP!
The British always get their knickers in a bunch when they have an athlete who's remotely capable of winning an Olympic medal. Usually the athlete turns out to be completely overrated. However, they might be on to something with heptathlete Jessica Ennis. She's not only a world champion, but she's gorgeous. And now she's been turned into a wax figure, abs and all! Take a look. JUMP!
Remember 8 weeks ago when we said JJ Barea should waste no time figuring out a way to marry his girlfriend Zuleyka Rivera. Yeah, well the Mavericks shooting guard picked the NBA Finals to make things happen and impregnate the 2006 Miss Universe. A radio station rumor in Puerto Rico yesterday turned into the truth and now the island nation is bracing for its first super baby of the 21st Century. Details - JUMP!
Were you in Vegas last night and happen to see a 6'6" former five-time NBA world champion wearing a lace spaghetti strap top and an Ed Hardy hat? Yeah, it's no big deal. Just Dennis Rodman celebrating his 50th birthday. The best part of the night? His birthday meal that reminded us of death row inmates chowing on their final meal. Oh, and have no fear, Rodman did make it rain for the women. So. Much. Fun! Details - JUMP!

BC was tipped off to Twitter-user and Denver sports enthusiast Cheryl Tweedy a few weeks back by Peter Burns Radio. We were told Cheryl doesn't pull punches with language (which we approve of) and is pretty cutthroat with her sports observations. Well, guess who was watching the Rockies' post-game show last night. Yep, Cheryl. And guess who was naked in the lockerroom? Rafael Betancourt & his dong just became very, very famous. JUMP!
Stephen Drew will be on the DL for a few after having his ankle snapped like a twig during last night's Diamonbacks-Brewers game. Listen, there are reasons why you don't run through a third base coach stop sign and this is one of them. Tough break, Drew. If you are queasy this morning we recommend NOT clicking through to the video. If ankles twisted backwards are your thing it's time to let this one roll. JUMP!
Welcome to aluminum thieving 2.0, the stage when morons take recyling-for-profit to the next level. Elve Culliver & Jeanette De LaRosa are a couple of kids (well, he's 42 & she's 18) just trying to survive in these extraordinary tough economic times. It's either stealing aluminum or finding a job and Craigslist is super competitive these days. Anyway, these two decided stealing softball bleachers was a good idea. Details - JUMP!

Our friend @bubbaprog was up to his usual good work last night during a 3-0 Real Madrid blowout of Chivas in the World Football Challenge. No way we'd be sticking around a 2-0 match in the 75th minute, but Bubba plowed ahead and earned himself this masterpiece from Real chick. We're pretty sure in San Diego that gesture means 'Let's grab a beer and talk penalty kick strategy after the match.' Can't wait to see her Facebook updates.
