Rich in Sterling Heights, Michigan sent us this earlier tonight: "Watching the game and couldn't help but notice Asian dude just chillin in his Mets jersey at GM 3 of ALCS. What the f%^& is up with that?" He's being called the Awkward Asian and is believed to be an Endy Chavez fan. Yes, those guys exist. Look, homeslice, at least drop the top button and lose the dress shirt. Maybe haul your ass up the stairs and get a white t-shirt. Name him: firstname.lastname@example.org
Philly blogs are going nuts over this photo allegedly of Ryan Howard on a Rascal at a Plymouth Meeting, Pa. Whole Foods. @Hadji484 is the photographer of record for this shot and doesn't add any context such as canes, food in the basket, etc. For those not in the know, Plymouth Meeting is white suburbia, exactly where rich baseball players would live. Crossing Broad says Howard lives near this exact store. With the Eagles 1-4 this should drive talk radio the rest of the week.
BC reader Brandon sent a message this afternoon with news on how Front Row Amy is blowing up with the Milwaukee media. You might remember Amy from last week on Deadspin where she her rack became the Rally Towel from Brew Crew fans. Amy's boobs start bouncing and good things happen. Anyway, the TV dorks wanted an interview last night & of course Amy obliged. NBC 4's Charles Benson had the celebrity beat & met Amy's rack face to face. JUMP!
Sad, sad, sad night for Phillies fan. Sure, Diamondbacks fan is kinda disappointed, but they weren't supposed to be a Dream Team with the Dream Team Pitching Staff. Remember this piece on Philly's pitching staff in the NY Times Magazine? Remember how the offense couldn't possibly be shut down? Anyway, moving on, a big steaming pile of football on tap today. BC & Coed are in Knoxville for UT-UGA. Here is your complete TV listing for today.
We've got a hot Texas Rangers fan celebrating her team's AL West championship the only way you can -- by popping balloons with her ass. Oh, wait... maybe there are other ways to celebrate. Anyway, we've never been big into the whole balloon fetish thing, but we''re reconsidering after seeing these videos. Don't worry, they're SFW and we highly recommend you check them out. Hit it!
The Detroit Tigers upended the New York Yankess to earn a spot in the ALCS last night and they had a fitting celebration. It included goggles, Victor Martinez's son, milk, reporter Tom Verducci almost losing an eye and, of course, tons of champagne. We went and found the best of. Here are the photos and video of the Detroit Tigers ALDS celebration. Check it!
San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum is accused of $200,000 worth of property damage and squatting by a former landlord. The hurler was hit with a lawsuit this week seeking $350,000 in damages. Among other things, Lincecum, or someone who was in his home, allegedly destroyed or stole quite a few items in the furnished apartment. We've got all the juicy details and the complaint for your perusal. Check it!
Get knocked out of the playoffs and get a new buddy to hang out with for the rest of the fall and winter. Rays' manager Joe Maddon tweeted this afternoon: "First roster addition of the offseason. Winston Churchill Maddon the 1st." We dare you to say this dog isn't going to destroy Tropicana Field. Dare you. Totally going to go Schottzie like Marge Schott's old St. Bernard. Licking his balls in front of NY Times reporters. Dropping a deuce in front of Jaime Maggio. Oh, it's on.
Of course it has been a long time since our last installment in the "Baseball Cap Bank Robbers" series. To be honest, the robbers were getting too boring. Way too many Yankees and Raiders hats. For some reason today seemed like a great day to see what was up with the unemployed jerkoffs. We're into this series for obvious reasons. What makes a robber go with a certain hat during a robbery? Why one team over the other? Today it's the Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball hat. JUMP!
Seriously, we didn't know that Jason Isringhausen even pitched this year for the New York Mets. No clue. Thought this guy was long gone from the MLB, but now read that he's wanting another contract in 2012. Um, somebody has burned through his cash. Chew on this: Izzy has made just under $60mm in his baseball career. Guaranteed cash. Now he's unloading his $5mm Tarpon Springs, Fla. house. To say it's gaudy is an understatement. JUMP!
First of all, imagine living to be 97-years-old. Then imagine being a Brewers fan all those years. The team didn't even become the Brewers until 1970 when the Seattle Pilots moved to Wisconsin. In other words, being that old and having only watched your team in one World Series sucks. There have only been four playoff appearances. Two in the 20th Century & then 2008, 2011. Now imagine thinking someone stole your remote. Time to call 9-1-1! JUMP!
Pretty sure that's a chick. We'll just pretend the hair is pulled back and she's with her mom during yesterday's Diamondbacks victory in Game 3 over the Brew Crew. In other baseball news, the Rays are eliminated and the Yankees are probably going to eliminate the Tigers after that serious goes 2-2. The Daily News went with a simple, "Back In It," headline while the Post took another jab at A.J. Burnett with the "Mr. October" backpage. Let's get rolling!
Last night at Game 3 of the A.L.D.S: Park in Greektown, walk towards Ford Field/Comerica & about two blocks from the ballpark the scalpers start routine. "Who needs tickets?" It was explained that we just needed into the park. "Cheapest you got," was our message. "$160 lower level," responded one. Keep walking. Another dude says be careful, lots of fakes floating. Now near Cheli's, normal looking Detroiter with a SRO. A quick $60 & we're in. JUMP!
It's not our normal routine to check the New York headlines but couldn't pass up a peek after the Yankees went down 2-1 in the ALDS. 99% of Yankees' fans hate A.J. Burnett and now he gets the ball tonight against a Tigers lineup that is actually getting production out of Ramon Santiago and Brandon Inge. “The weight of the world isn’t on his shoulders,” Mark Teixeira said of the erratic right-hander whose last start was Sept. 25. “It’s on our shoulders.” Let's get rolling.
Former Chicago Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa, or as we call him White Sammy Sosa, is raising the bar on creepiness once again. He still has the white face, but now we know he shaves his chest. That's right, white skin and as little hair as possible. Well done Sammy! In honor of the weirdo known as Sammy Sosa, we present this latest installment of Greatest Moment in Sammy Sosa White Face. Check it out!
How do we know Busted Coverage has a special power over hot women these days? 1. They'll actually email us. 2. They think we're witty, funny & have a great sense of humor. 3. They'll actually shoot exclusive photos of themselves wearing their favorite team's jersey. That's like an Internet trifecta for a sports blogger. That's how we met model/actress Kerry Garvin. She looked us up and kinda wanted to give the Rays some inspiration during the playoff run. JUMP!
For those of you losers who've never spent a sports weekend in Detroit, mark it down on the must-do list. Of course the ride from the airport isn't going to impress you. Of course the ride north on I-75 will take you past an America that America has long forgotten. But the bond that D people have is sports. Fighting the Yankees. Coming back on the Cowboys. This is where sports is happening right now. Tonight we head into the beast for Verlander-Sabathia. Wouldn't dare miss it.
As we've come to expect from St. Louis, some dimwit posted a bunch of "St. Louis Cardinals 2011 NL Central Champions" posters around the team's locker room before they celebrated their Wild Card berth. We suspect the Milwaukee Brewers, who finished six games ahead of St. Louis, might have something to say about that. Anyway, here's a gallery of the Cardinals celebrating whatever they think they won. Check it!
Do yourself a favor at some point this evening if you haven't already done so. Go watch this video. Cooper Stone is the son of deceased fan, Shannon Stone, who fell to his death trying to snag a ball thrown by Josh Hamilton earlier this season. The family had to deal with the loss of a father and husband, while Hamilton has to live with the guilt. We dare you to watch this and not get a lump in your throat. HT: SportsGrid & @BubbaProg.
The Boston Red Sox melted down like no other team ever has before, blowing the biggest lead for a playoff spot entering September in history. While we're fairly pleased the Sox won't be in the playoffs, BC sorta feels your pain. We also enjoyed a laugh or two at your expense. So, in honor of your meltdown, here are the best A.L. Wild Card collapse e-cards. Way to go, Boston! Enjoy being loozahs this winter. JUMP!
It's a night in Major League Baseball history that won't soon be forgotten. ESPN is already firing up the 30 for 30 documentary team. Dan Shaughnessy would totally like a do-over with what will go down as his very own Bill Buckner moment. Four teams had a shot. 3 of the 4 games were unreal. One rain delay. 2 extra inning games. Newspaper deadlines missed. Big headlines. Fans crying. Fans with four TVs in their living rooms. The night had it all. Recap - JUMP!
Those of you who watched the 30 for 30 documentary, Catching Hell, last night on ESPN know how riveting it was for a character like Steve Bartman to collide with Chicago Cubs baseball history. The character had to be in the right place at the right time. The ball had to find him. He had to be wearing those headphones. The Halloween costume. And in a matter of seconds, Steve Bartman's life changed forever over a stupid foul ball. Twitter responds - JUMP!
Swear. One more MLB team gaying it up and we're done for the day. Only so much MLB man-ass a straight blogger can take in one day. Anyway, last night was Cleveland Indians' Rookie Hazing Night. And of course the team has like 32 rookies on its roster so the veterans had to come up with a universal outfit that would be quick, cheap (anyone make over $1mm on this team?) and easy. Party Boy underwear time! Looks like a tribute to Grady Sizemore's coffee cup. JUMP!
The Boston Red Sox are now headed to the 162nd game of the year tied with the Tampa Rays for the A.L. East Wild Card, but the team isn't taking this journey so seriously that rookie hazing has been thrown out the window. Leave it to Heidi Watney, sideline reporter extraordinaire, this week to upload photos of rookie shortstop Jose Iglesias in his best NYC Pride Parade costume. Look, the best way to handle a huge playoff race collapse is to keep a smile on your face. JUMP!
Our old buddy, Darren Heitner (2nd best blogger/lawyer combo on Internet; 1st is Friends of the Program because they once took us to an Ole Miss tailgate with cute coeds), was at Joe Robbie last night for the 2nd to last game in this football stadium's history. Marlins fan, obviously feeling nostalgic, came out in droves. There was actually a foul ball down the line and nobody moved an inch to catch it. Just think, those seats have witnessed two World Series. Suck it, Cleveland.
BC reader John D. wrote to us last week in reference to the Next Erin Andrews Project: "Have you not heard of Laura McKeeman? She works for Scout.com and fox sports and she does radio stuff but shes like the college football recruiting guru and there's not another girl that knows as much as her. Really incredibal." Then John provided the requisite personal website, Twitter & Facebook accounts. The EA Hunter put on his investigator hat for a look into this McKeeman chick. JUMP!
She's 6'9" and known as Isis The Amazon. She's kinda well known for her wrestling abilities, but calls herself a sports entertainer. She was supposed to be the next big 'thing' for the WWE, but one thing led to another and she was canned. But Isis The Amazon has continued to go about her business. Last night she just happened to be at the same club where New York Yankees rookies visited on Rookie Hazing Night. Yep, the boys were still in costumes for drinks with Isis. JUMP!
Um, what other sports blogs out there had boots on the ground last night in the Arizona Diamondbacks locker room for the N.L. West clincher? Busted Coverage did. Our Phoenix correspondent, Garrett, was there as Mark Grace took a shower via the Diamondbacks Gatorade bucket. (Watch the video, HERE; HT XTRA 910.com) Garrett also wants you to watch Sean Burroughs dancing like a foolish whiteboy. All in all, solid night for BC & the Diamondbacks. Let's get rolling.
Nothing like seeing the Yankees celebrate another A.L. East title while Kansas City holds Beanie Baby Bobblehead Night. Actually, last night it was Team Photo night for Royals fan. Anyway, the Yankees popped bottles and stud rookie pitcher Ivan Nova allegedly got hammered on the champagne. Anything else to report? Jeter made it rain on Kim Jones and Jorge Posada was all confused when he was used as a pinch hitter. Couple pics of the victory scene - JUMP!
Last night at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia it was comedy night for the Washington Nationals bullpen, according to Dan Steinberg at D.C. Sports Bog. It seems someone figured out where the ballpark signage crew keeps their extra numbers. Time to create a stampede down to Rick's Carryout. But, fear not, Mega Millions Nation. This just happens to be a hoax. Don't freak out and start rounding up $100s from co-workers. We have the real lottery values - JUMP!
The Nature Boy was in Boston last night to hopefully bust the Sox out of the funk that has allowed the Tampa Rays to get within two games of the A.L. wild card lead. He brought along a TNA championship belt and the classic Nature Boy entertainment value. That meant Ric was given the responsibility of introducing the Sox lineup. Ever the entertainer, he ended the lineup with at least three WOOOOOOOOs! He then watched the Sox split a DH.
Groupon, the site that loves to bombard your inbox with super-duper-can't-pass-up deals, has pretty much taken a giant machete and chopped off the head of Baseball History. Blood, brains & Harry Caray's balls splattered on the corner of Clark & Addison. Someone tell us it can't be true that Wrigley Field will be used as a giant drive-in theater (minus the Audis) in October to show 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' on multiple screens positioned around the ballpark. JUMP!
You know what's not sexy? It's simple - New York Mets' rookies in cheerleader uniforms. The underachieving ballclub had some fun last night with its annual rookie hazing by making youngsters look like they're about to partake in a gay porn in Chelsea. But these guys are troopers. They're able to laugh about being called up and becoming the Mets cheerleading team. You guys do realize these photos will live on the Internet? JUMP!
Now you can own your own piece of the Amarillo Sox -- their since abandoned mascot that looks like he's got a raging boner. That's right, this piece of baseball infamy can be yours for just $25,000. The mascot costume in all of its bonerrific goodness if up for sale on eBay.
There are some happy Texans today. Rangers first baseman Josh Hamilton blasted a grand slam last night, triggering a promotion for free carpet and countertops from an Arlington carpet store. The slam also inadvertently introduced us to the store owner's daughter, Morgan Fitzgerald. Aren't we lucky? Here are some pics so you can ogle her.
Missy Coles was just going along with her life as a buxom fitness model on the bodybuilding circuit. Then her BF had to go and tweet about her. That's it, bloggers figure out the puzzle. Suddenly Phillies' P Michael Schwimer finds his girlfriend lusted after by drunken, loser fools on the Internet. Of course you haven't heard of Schwimer. He was called up in late August, but figures to be with the big club next season. Time to update your WAG lists accordingly. JUMP!
