It's unclear when this Yankees tailgating video was shot, but we'll guess it was over the weekend when the Red Sox were in town since that one bro already has his Ichiro shirt. If there's one thing we've learned over the years, it's that Internet gold usually occurs when House of Pain's 'Jump Around' is played at a tailgate. There's probably some dude at James Madison studying the song's effect on bro society. JUMP!
We've been trying to tell the Internet this summer that Roger Clemens couldn't pull himself away from baseball. There has barely been a weekend when The Rocket hasn't been at a baseball park watching his son play. Now comes word that Roger will be starting this Saturday for the indy league Sugar Land Skeeters. Oh, did we mention it's Human Fireball Night at the Skeeters park? You can get a ticket and a two-hour all-you-can-eat buffet for $37.50. JUMP!
How does Chris Perez entertain himself now that the Indians season is a waste and he's closing games just to keep his $4,500,000 salary rolling in? He gets in an f-bomb fight with an A's fan - just because it seems fun. You know this kind of A's fan. He shows up early for BP, finds a guy who's likely to jab with him and then acts like a d-bag. Perez not only obliges A's d-bag with a verbal fight, he has A's fan ejected. JUMP!
Kate Upton has been relatively quiet since it was learned that she and Justin Verlander were dating. It was July 10 when BC learned that Upton was officially partying with Verlander in Detroit. Then there was the July 18 news that Upton was joining a suburban Detroit gym. That's where the trail went cold. For the most part, she stopped using Twitter. JV & Upton weren't spotted at concerts. She kinda quieted down. Now we get Upton in a Tigers hat! It's back on! JUMP!
We're not sure if Jose Canseco's family is funneling memorabilia to dealers to get cash for the disgraced slugger who recently filed for bankruptcy. It just seems odd that an eBay seller is claiming this 1997 A's Booster Club banner came from Canseco's sister and that "Jose treasured this for many years." Yes, very strange. Jose would spend the '97 season in Oakland and have 122Ks in 108 games. At only $500 on eBay, how do you not buy this thing? JUMP!
Via: A suspect in as many as five armed robberies was arrested Thursday evening after a standoff outside his San Mateo County home that lasted nearly 10 hours, according to law enforcement. The suspect, Miguel Angel Caballero, 30, is suspected in as many as five armed robberies at businesses in the Redwood City area since Aug. 7. And to think he's going to miss watching Red Sox-Yankees tonight from his couch. Sucks, bro.
We're one day into the Little League World Series and Twitter is already dropping Jerry Sandusky jokes at an alarming rate. Like this from @Weave7 - jerry sandusky said he would admit to everything he did if they let him watch the little league world series
#truefan(.) For those not very good with geography, Sandusky's cell is only 55.6 from the Little League facility in Williamsport. In other baseball news, Andruw Jones used to make these plays. Let's get rolling!
Back in November, Boston Red Sox sideline reporter Heidi Watney left Beantown for greener pastures. She signed on to join Time Warner in Los Angeles, covering the Lakers. Pretty cushy job out in L.A., right? Apparently not good enough for Watney as she is reportedly already looking for new employment...via ESPN. Heidi may be your new First Take host! JUMP!
What's more embarrassing than getting caught digging a booger out of your nose at a baseball game? How about itching your junk at the end of an inning during a Phillies-Cardinals game last weekend. Kinda embarrassing, no? Bad case of jock itch or you dealing with poison ivy on the package? Ball girl causing a griz? When are people going to learn, you can't be itching your junk at a game without a camera catching it. JUMP!
Are you out of work, behind on your house payments, the electric is about to be shut off and you...
Kate Upton has been MIA and won't get into a bikini. Justin Verlander seems to have locked her down so instead you guys are stuck with Miranda Kerr...sucks, right? Miranda is the latest model to get a one-on-one shoot with photographer Terry Richardson. This guy is a real head-scratcher. The dude got Kate Upton to Cat-Daddy and now has Miranda Kerr pulling his pants down in front of the camera. JUMP!
From the moment the Red Sox announced the hiring of Bobby Valentine, things have been rocky. Sure he had his cute introductory press conference, but that was long forgotten after the dreadful start the Sox had to the 2012 season. Then it was the Youkilis falling out. Now this...on Tuesday the Red Sox players requested a sit down with ownership on the state of the team and Bobby V. Twitter went nuts and wants to see Bobby V get canned...like now! JUMP!
Ryan Howard is scheduled to make $118,000,000 over the next five years, and the Phillies 1B has already made $62,000,000 in his career. Quick math = $180 million. That would be over 12 years. If he stays healthy, The Big Piece could add a few million to that total. Figure he ends up cashing $200m in his baseball career. So what's a blogger to get Ryan Howard for his December wedding? We bought him a $7.99 washcloth. JUMP!
What's exciting to an Indians fan in a 14-1 drubbing from the Red Sox during Sunday's game? A foul ball. Here we have Cummins diesel biggin' thinking he's about to land himself a $20 MLB souvenir. Of course Affliction bro has to step in to grab the ball, leaving biggin' to fall into that Budweiser Patio fence. Cummins should be commended, though, for giving 110% for that ball. You won't see that effort from some coffee sipper in Seattle. JUMP!
You know what's intimidating about the 20,000 sq. ft. house ARod is selling in Miami? (A.) The price (B.) Keeping the white walls clean (C.) The price (D.) Keeping finger prints off all the glass. (E.) That Cleveland Indians art on the wall. Seriously, in the history of BC, we've never seen an athlete house with this much glass. It's everywhere. Even the bathrooms have floor-to-ceiling glass. This place IS INSANE! JUMP!
Now, before I go any further, do realize that Donny Baseball hasn't owned this car since 2002, but it's still being promoted as Mattingly's old Corvair that he owned through the 1990s. Why did Mattingly own a junky Chevy convertible that was frowned upon by true car enthusiasts? Because southern Indiana chicks couldn't resist a baseball legend in a Corvair. It only has 110,000 miles! JUMP!
The following images of MLB team Facebook page status updates are 100% not Photoshopped. It seems a hacker attacked at least five accounts today with vicious messages that made it live. As you can see, the hacker(s) went to extremes to be brutally funny with a message like "F*ck Bill Murray" on the Cubs Facebook account. Oh, & Marlins fans, FREE Pitbulls! JUMP!
You might remember back in May when we were chasing Jose Canseco around Connecticut to keep tabs on how he was making and spending cash. We know of at least one night of gambling at Foxwoods while the guy owed the IRS $500,000+ because someone recorded Jose playing poker. Now comes word that he has officially filed for bankruptcy protection. JUMP!
You mean I can't get a bottle of water into a ballpark but this asshole can sneak a horse head mask by security? And how exactly does that happen? Into the Lexus luxury seats, to boot! (via @_JakeRussell) The big Olympic news this morning? An Aussie rower got bombed last night, damaged a shop, was taken to police HQ, hit his head and eventually went to the hospital. As for TV, you get Lochte & men's basketball. Let's get rolling!
And then there was new Derek Jeter girlfriend news. According to the NY Post, the Yankees legend is now dating lingerie model Hannah Davis. She's a Ralph Lauren model who has also spent time as a bra/underwear model. He's supposedly taking her to clubs and have supposedly been dating for several months. Guess how old Davis is. GUESS! She's twenty-friggin-two! Just Jeter being Jeter. The guy is brilliant. JUMP!
Busy watching the Olympics? There are other sports to worry about. Like baseball. Remember that sport? There was a fiasco last night surrounding the outcome of the Red Sox-Tigers game. The Red Sox had a 4-1 lead in the sixth inning when the rain really started to worsen. An hour and 45 minutes later, the game was called. Seems routine, right? Wrong. The Tigers had the bases loaded, tying run on first, winning run at the plate! JUMP!
That Barry Bonds cycling post last night brought up old memories for BC Twitter followers. See, Bonds is now looking like he did in 1991, which brought up Bobby Bonilla's name from the crypt. That led to: "Is Bonilla still getting paid by the Mets?" Um, yes, and Bobby received check #2 this year of his 25-year run of $1,193,248.20 checks from the team for deferring his salary. That's Bobby at the 2012 all-star festivities - high on the hog. Let's get rolling!
Remember in late May when I told you someone on eBay was selling a very expensive bike that belonged to Barry Bonds? Yeah, that was the same post where I told you Bonds is becoming something of a bicycling freak. Now comes word that Bonds over the weekend was bicycling around Aspen. How much does he weigh now? The guy in the neon green shirt is 6-5, 185. Bonds was said to be 6-2, 228 in 2007. JUMP!
You need any further evidence that the craziest bastards live in Florida? This should end the competition. Meet Ronald Brown. Yes, he's a complete loser. He's been a complete loser for a long time. Yes, he walks around with that horrible rug on his head. Yes, Ron has enjoyed his time as the Tampa Rays puppeteer. He even uploaded a Facebook photo of himself working a Rays game. It just happens that Ron allegedly wanted to eat children. JUMP!
In case you missed the news, the Yankees are in Seattle and decided to trade for Ichiro and his 2,500 career hits (in just 12 years). And just like that, the guy was suiting up for the Yanks and going 1-for-4 against his old team. Don't be sad for Ichiro and his dwindling career. The guy is making $17,000,000 this year in the final year of his contract. We're talking $129M in career earnings. In Olympics news, Usain Bolt says he's going to run a 9.4 100m. Let's get rolling!
Shaving anything onto yourself is a huge commitment and takes a lot of time. Well, this guy just took the shaving game to the next level with this Joe Mauer back shave that includes his number. Thanks to Brian Floyd and @cjzero for catching this absolute train wreck of a shave and bringing it to our attention. If this guys wants to shave "Mauer 7" on his back, he should be able to, because this is America. USA! USA! USA! It's not like he did a bad job on it. He went all in. You gotta respect that. JUMP!
Johnny Damon of the Cleveland Indians made an amazing dive in the stands and also seemed to make some friends in the process. This girl seemed pretty interested in him even though she didn't put her cell phone or her beer down. The guys around him look completely psyched too. We got a guy that looks like a huge NASCAR fan and a guy with a camouflage hat. You can check out the GIFs here. Enhanced image after the JUMP!
Here's what we know about Brewers' superfan Front Row Amy: she really doesn't give two sh*ts what you guys say about her. Just doesn't care. Still goes to Brewers games. Still sits in that Row 1, Seat 5 seat. 50+ games a year. And now, thanks to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel fluff feature, commentors are destroying her on a variety of subjects.JUMP!
Are you out of work, behind on your house payments, the electric is about to be shut off and you need to pay for a divorce? Getting out of debt could be easy. Do you know this bank robber? Would you consider turning on your homeboy, but don't have the nerves to rat? Let us help you. We'll turn on your homeboy. And split the reward money with you! It's a win-win. Full story – JUMP!
Roger Clemens is officially back. Sure, there was the BC report a couple weeks ago about the camo cargo shorts he wore to his son's baseball game. But this weekend Rocket took his swag to the next level over the weekend at the East Cobb baseball complex in Marietta, Georgia. His son was in town for a 17U tournament. The guy seemed to be kinda quiet after his perjury acquittal, but now the swag is back. Just look at that belt. JUMP!
Of course we're excited over the news of Pete Rose and his girlfriend Kiana Kim getting a reality show on TLC. It's like sports' version of Ice T & Coco T. Tell me you're not excited to see how Pete manages a life with an Asian chick with giant boobs and personality. That's the show right there. Week after week. Don't forget that Pete is 71-years-old. We expect multiple TVs showing sulky horse racing & the MLB package. JUMP!
The Kate Upton-Justin Verlander saga just gets better and better. Here's the Minneapolis-St.Paul Fox affiliate trying to run all-star game highlights but end up showing Kate Upton's Cat Daddy instead. Was this planned? Probably. You know those wacky kids at Fox, always looking to spice up the news with a then-19-year-old shaking her ass on the News at 9. JUMP!
Our friends at It's Always Sunny In Detroit stopped by a suburban Detroit gym last night and nearly had a heart attack when Kate Upton just happened to be in the same gym. That's right, Kate Upton is back in Detroit. Why? We assume because she's dating Justin Verlander. You might remember that the two shared some personal time before the all-star break by catching an Aerosmith concert & hanging at the bar. JUMP!
The next great WAG story may be upon us. First we had Lauren Tannehill rock our worlds at the NFL Draft. Now it looks like Mike Trout's girlfriend, Jessica Cox, is the sports world's next darling. As Trout is taking the MLB by storm with his .349 batting average, we are bound to see more of Cox. At first glance, she seems pretty cute. Comparing her to BC favorite Lauren Tannehill? Unlike her boyfriend, we're not sure she's ready for the big leagues just yet. JUMP!
(1.) How many hits did it take to get 999 runs? (2.) At what point did the Twins go to position players as to save the bullpen for today's game? (3.) Will Ron Gardenhire lose his job over this embarrassing loss? Helluva fantasy baseball night.
It's 88 degrees and cloudy in Chicago at 2:38 p.m., according to Weather.com. Pretty sure the Cubs game isn't being delayed due to snow. Looks like the commute home is going to be a bitch. Friday traffic and snow drifts on Lake Shore Dr. You've been warned, Chicagoans. (via @bairet)
