Why do we watch Nascar? Obviously for the crashes. Mike Conway and Will Power provided us with a pretty spectacular crash at the Indy 500 today. They were both okay and random car parts flew into the air. Dario Franchitti ended up winning the 2012 Indy 500 for a third time which is an impressive feat. Not only did Conway's car slam into the wall but it flew up into the air. Video after the JUMP!
Former Auburn Tiger and current Detroit Lion defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested for driving under the influence around 1:00 am on Sunday. This isn't Fairley's first run in with the law this offseason. Earlier he was arrested for the possession of marijuana. He received a ticket for having an open container, no proof of insurance, reckless driving, and attempting to elude police. Expect Roger Goodell to follow up on this. JUMP!
Remember that hit that Udonis Haslem put on Tyler Hansborough during Game 5 of the NBA Playoffs? Well, it cost him a game suspension and we found out today that it was intentional and he would do it again. Haslem claimed that it was to defend his Miami Heat teammate Dwayne Wade who was fouled hard earlier in the game. He went on to say "I can't imagine anything I wouldn't do for Dwayne". JUMP!
Arrianny Celeste, a UFC ring girl, was arrested on domestic violence charges in Las Vegas. Her bail was set at 3,000 dollars and she was taken into custody at 7:30 am. Details are still emerging from the incident and most of what happened is unknown. It was probably pretty serious since it isn't exactly easy to get arrested in Las Vegas. I guess she won't be in attendance at UFC 146 tonight. You'll also probably want to check out the 60 greatest Arianny Celeste photos. JUMP!
Jose Canseco took to Twitter today to start the campaign for him to be voted into the All Star Game. This isn't the first time that Canseco has taken to Twitter for crazy things. He has also tried to find chicks to date through that medium. I highly recommend that you check out the responses to this tweet. Will Jose Canseco make it into the MLB All Star Game? Probably not, but crazier things have happened. JUMP!

Conor Daly did not have a good day at today's GP3 series race. During the race in Monaco, Conor Daly and Dmitry Suranovich got tangled up which caused Daly's car to fly up into the air. Marlon Stockinger ended up winning the series due to it being shortened because of the crash. Anytime you end up driving this fast and this close to each other, bad things tend to happen. Don't worry, he ended up being fine. JUMP!

Known for his signature catch phrase of "WOOOO", Ric Flair is a wrestling legend. Yeah, he is probably losing his spot on TNA wrestling, but it looks like he is making plenty of cash doing commercials. You can see him here yelling "WOOOO" for an energy drink company we've never heard of. No matter how many times this guy tries to leave wrestling, he just keeps coming back. Just remember, it puts a "WOOO" in your "WOOO". JUMP!

James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers has gotten a bad wrap over the years for hard hits on players and fines handed down by Roger Goodell. The filmmaker Sean Pamphilon, who is known for releasing the tapes of Gregg Williams in the bountygate scandal, rode along with Harrison where they talked about James' possible rap career and the bountygate scandal. Of course, Harrison said his music would be a combination of R Kelly, Justin Bieber, and Usher. JUMP!
Ole Miss is known for their gorgeous southern co-eds, the grove, and their extravagant southern attire. Their slogan is "We may not win every game, but we've never lost a party." Well, the Ole Miss Rebels have announced that their fans should wear specific colored fan attire that differs for each game based on the team that they are playing. This is basically the most Ole Miss thing ever. The actual 2012 football dress code is after the JUMP!
Dwayne Wade was driving to the basket on Roy Hibbert during the Miami Heat-Indiana Pacers NBA playoff game and things got kind of chippy. Roy Hibbert didn't even pretend to go for the block and just grabbed Wade and pulled him down and held onto his arm. Wade and Danny Granger confronted each other after the play where both teams got involved and the officials needed to pull them back. The play costed the Pacers a technical foul. JUMP!
It's no secret that Tim Tebow and his lawyers want to keep his image as pristine as possible. Well, this time they may have taken things a little too far. Tim Tebow attended the Broadway show "Rock of Ages" and took a picture with the lovely ladies of the cast. To the chagrin of Tebow's legal team, @neka posted this photo on her account for the entire internet to see. It's usually a lot better to just ignore something than bring attention to it by asking for it to be removed. JUMP!
After Chelsea beat Bayern Munich 4-3 in penalty kicks, David Luiz gave this awkward interview in which he was definitely drunk. The Chelsea forward was probably completely physically drained and filled with shots of hard liquor after one of the most amazing finishes in soccer. Not only is he wearing a giant blue Chelsea hat but he starts wiggling his tongue back and forth at the camera. JUMP!
New York Rangers' Forward Brandon Prust pulled a dirty move by elbowing Anton Volchenkov of the New Jersey Devils in the back of the head. Volchenkov collapsed to the ice after the head shot. The hit looked pretty intentional and a suspension could be handed down to Prust if deemed necessary. The New York Rangers lead the series 2 games to 1. Video after the JUMP!
Jon "Bones" Jones wrapped his Bentley around a pole in Binghamton, New York at around 5 am this morning. Jones was reportedly physically okay, but he was popped for a DUI charge and was bailed out by his mother hours later. I guess Jon Jones was taking a break from his training for his upcoming September 1st fight against Dan Henderson in Las Vegas. It's always cheaper to take a taxi (especially when you are driving a Bentley). JUMP!
Snoop Dogg himself showed up to the Los Angeles Lakers-Oklahoma City Thunder playoff game last night in this Rastafarian style hat and crazy sunglasses. Of course the sunglasses had a flip up cover with smiley faces on them (why wouldn't they?). I'm sure he was just wearing them so you couldn't see how red his eyes were. Anyways, the Lakers came back from a pretty hefty deficit against the Thunder to win the game with a crazy finish. HT @Jose3030. JUMP!
A Stephon Marbury statue was unveiled on the lawn of the MasterCard Center where the Beijing Ducks won their first ever CBA championship. If it wasn't weird enough that China has a Stephon Marbury statue then guess who gave the commencement speech? Dennis Rodman. Why did Dennis Rodman give the commencement speech? We have absolutely no idea. JUMP!
After Roger Federer won the Madrid Open, Will Smith came on the court and took the microphone. He spoke in spanish about Federer's win and also how he was giving Roger his suit for his upcoming movie Men in Black III. This was all because of a press tour that Will and Jada Smith are doing to promote Men in Black III. Also, this was one of the most random celebrity appearances of all time. JUMP!
Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics thought it would be a good idea to try an alley oop to his teammate who was ahead of the defense. Well, Ryan Hollins, was not prepared for the alley oop but went up for it anyways. He ended up catching the ball, missing the dunk, and landing flat on his ass. It's just good television. The Boston Celtics lead the Philadelphia 76ers 1 to nothing in the NBA Playoffs. JUMP!
Ronda Rousey is a MMA fighter that had a former hook up reach out to her on Instagram. Well, she didn't harbor very warm feelings for the old flame as she told him to "F#$% off." The dude tried to get back in contact with her after not calling her back. Apparently she didn't like the fact he waited till she got famous before trying to get back in contact with her. HT Sportsgrid JUMP!
John Axford, of the Milwaukee Brewers, blew a save last night and also had to take his pregnant wife to the hospital because she was going into labor. Not only was his excuse for not talking to media completely valid, but his note was absolutely hilarious. The Milwaukee Brewers ended up beating ended up beating the Chicago Cubs in 13 innings but it only went into extra innings because of the blown save. HT Deadspin. JUMP!
Future NBA player and former University of Kentucky Wildcat player Anthony Davis was seen at a local fast food restaurant operating the fryers. Davis is expecting to go as the first pick in the NBA Draft and make insane amounts of money. The unibrowed phenom showed off his wingspan while stretching over about 10 fryers. This could be his back up plan in case he is forced to play for Michael Jordan. HT Kentucky Sports Radio JUMP!
After the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Dallas Mavericks, Russell Westbrook was asked some questions by reporter Johnathon Tjarks. Tjarks, who works for RealGM.com, asked Westbrook if he would consider James Harden a maximum contract player. Westbrook dodged the question and responded to Tjarks with a "No more questions for you bro". Video after the JUMP!
Chris Paul brought his son to the post game press conference after the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Memphis Grizzlies. Chris was discussing a specific part of the game and asked his son to imitate Blake Griffin's game face. The kid did a spot on imitation of it and the crowd loved it. Thanks kid for creating a meme for us. The LA Clippers lead the series 2-1 against the Memphis Grizzlies. JUMP!
Hours after The Kentucky Derby ended and I'll Have Another won the race, a body was found in a barn behind Churchill Downs. So far, the police have no suspects but foul play is suspected. More than 165,000 people showed up to watch jockey Mario Gutierrez and I'll Have Another's amazing victory in Louisville, Kentucky. The cause of death is still being determined by a coroner. JUMP!
What do you do when the NFL commissioner makes you take a year off from football for a scandal? If you are Sean Payton, you go to the New Orleans House of Blues and walk on stage to perform for the crowd. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals lead off the concert according to Deadspin and then Payton played keyboard. Payton said he would coach his son's football team this year but it looks like we'll be seeing him having some fun. JUMP!
The Tuscaloosa News had a little bit of trouble with their headline for their girl's softball story today. The writer, which we are just going to assume is a University of Alabama graduate, spelled 'handcuff' as 'hancuff'. You would think they would have spell check or an editor. Maybe the guy was just so upset that the Gators are gaining ground on the Crimson Tide in a women's athletic event that it was just an emotional mistake. Who knows? HT @OurHonorDefend. JUMP!
Great Attack, a horse racing in the Twin Spires Turf Sprint, was tied for last place at the beginning of a 5 furlong turf. Joel Rosario, the horse's jockey, rode right through the middle of the pack of horses and challenged the lead horse for the win. Bridgetown looked to have the race in hand for most of the race and blew it to Great Attack. Make sure you go to the liquor store and stock up on bourbon for your mint juleps tonight for the Kentucky Derby. JUMP!
Bryce Harper, the Washington Nationals rookie, got his first hit of his Major League Baseball career off of a Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher for a double. Some Dodgers fans decided to moon, not only their pitcher, but also Bryce Harper. Yeah, it doesn't make sense to moon your own pitcher but the kids look pretty young. This may be the best rookie troll move of all time. We enhanced the image after the JUMP!
This is why you never leave your star players on the court when the game is in hand. Derrick Rose went down with an injury to what looked like his knee after falling awkwardly on it. The Chicago Bulls took on the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs where the Bulls pulled out the win. We'll see if Derrick Rose is able to return for Game 2 or if this will effect this series or series to come. HT Deadspin JUMP!
The Washington Redskins held an introductory press conference for the 2nd overall pick in the NFL Draft today for Robert Griffin III. The former Baylor Bear and Heisman trophy winner walked up on stage and then this screen went up that just read "Video Lock Error Ident Mode" on the NFL Network. The feed was not able to be resurrected and anything RGIII had to say was only heard by the people in the room. JUMP!
Russell Wilson was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL Draft last night and his wife Ashton Wilson stole the spotlight by getting SUPER PSYCHED as you can see. First of all that white phone Russell is using is ridiculous. Who still uses this shit? Ashton, @1AshtonWilson, not only reacted ridiculous when her husband was drafted, but was holding her little dog. Don't worry guys, we were able to track down pictures of this WAG from her Twitter account. JUMP!
The Los Angeles Lakers took on the Oklahoma City Thunder today where some 'extracurricular' activity happened during the game. Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, elbowed James Harden in the face in completely violent fashion. Of course, Metta World Peace pretended like nothing happened while Harden layed on the ground in obvious pain. I'm sure David Stern is going to take a look at this play and possible hand out some punishments. JUMP!
We are all familiar with the insane and most of the time indecipherable Twitter feed of @JoseCanseco. Things got even more weird when Canseco took to Twitter to try and find some girls to date. The responses to Canseco's tweet are absolutely hilarious. It's mostly girls responding with "BLOCKED" or "You're Crazy". I highly suggest you follow this feed for the humor and the education of what steroids can do to a person. JUMP!
DJ Steve Porter has made some great mixes for ESPN (like the Randy Moss' "One Clap" video) and this one is no different. DJ Steve Porter just came out with one for the 2012 NFL Draft and it did not disappoint. The draft this year starts this Thursday and it looks like the first pick is already locked up with the Indianapolis Colts picking Andrew Luck to replace Peyton Manning. JUMP!
The Mississippi State Bulldogs will only play on 60 yards of field for their 2012 spring game because they decided it was more important to build a stage for a band to perform on. MSU decided to give up 40 yards of field space for a country music band named Sugarland to play on. Dan Mullen doesn't have much to work with to display his team's ability for his spring game. Grind for your state MSU! HT @stricklinMSU JUMP!
Manning Way is a street in Oxford, Mississippi that was named after the Ole Miss Rebel quarterback Archie Manning. The speed limit used to be 18 mph in honor of Archie's number. Well now that there is a new Manning and former rebel and current New York Giants quarterback winning Superbowls, the speed limit has been changed to Eli Manning's number 10. I doubt Ole Miss fans will feel too bad about going 8 mph slower than usual. HT CFBSection JUMP!
