For those of you who were stuck at home during today's ceremonies at Fenway, you missed an apparently drunken Pedro Martinez and Kevin Millar standing on the Red Sox dugout and leading an awkward toast with fans. Yes, Pedro and Cowboy Up had bottles of grape juice in their hands, but we assume they were pounding something strong earlier in the day. Nothing makes us smile quite like drunken Pedro. One of the best. JUMP!
We could really care less about Fenway celebrating its 100th anniversary today with a game against the New York Yankees. First pitch today – 3:15 p.m. The place most likely would've been blown up in the late 1990s if it wasn't for the Tom Henry crew saving the team and the old yard. What we care about is the Red Sox tradition of hot chicks, who really don't know anything about baseball, becoming fans & wearing the team's colors. JUMP!
The big news out of today's White Sox-Orioles game this afternoon came during the 7th inning when a young kid decided he'd listen to his elders and run onto the U.S. Cellular (or whatever they're calling it) Field. Of course he was apprehended by the left fielder and child right's advocates will soon debate whether his parents should be jailed and/or banned from life at Cellular. What kind of dirtbag sends his kid onto a MLB field to possibly be tased? JUMP!
Via: It happened at the Green Bank in the 5000 block of San Felipe at around 3pm Tuesday. Authorities say the man, who was captured by surveillance video, walked in and handed a note to the teller saying he had a gun and demanded money. The teller gave him some cash and the suspect fled on foot. The suspect is described as a black male in his 30s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches, and weighing 155 pounds. Should be quick case. Black guy wearing Astros cap.
Is there anything more embarrassing for a #RangersRack participant than wearing a C.J. Wilson shirt in her rack photos? Ask Sara (@RangersGirl36) who appeared on BC earlier this week in her Wilson shirt and was promptly ridiculed by fellow Rangers fans who have turned the page on the lefty. So embarrassed, Sara went out today and picked up a new shirt she wanted to show you guys. Approve or disapprove? Full photo - JUMP!
When fans show up to an Anaheim Angels game in mid-April for Albert Pujols Bobblehead Night they expect to take home a piece that'll become part of their memorabilia collection. These people take their Chinese-made, $25 eBay auction value item seriously because the game isn't nearly as important as the 'free stuff' they get upon entry. So imagine Angels fan's anger when he/she saw how bad Albert's beard looks on the bobblehead. Controversy! JUMP!
So 49-year-old Jaime Moyer got that elusive victory making him the oldest pitcher in MLB history to win a game, beating the Padres, 5-3. He regularly hit 79 with the fastball and 70-72 with the changeup. Yes, batting practice pitches. How long has Moyer been around Major League Baseball? His first salary in 1986 with the Chicago Cubs was $60,000. And Moyer "made his major-league debut when Ferris Bueller was in theaters," according to the Denver Post. Let's get rolling!
It was early 2011 when a sideline reporter named Kristina Akra first burst onto the Internet scene thanks to her work in the SEC and with the New England Patriots. Certain sites posted bikini photos and claimed Kristina had a background with the Miami Heat as a dancer. That wasn't true at all. The bikini and dancer background actually belonged to her sister, Katherine Akra. Now the two are both working in baseball. Yes, this is HUGE news to us. JUMP!
Close your eyes for a second. Conjure up the image of a 25-year-old white guy who still collects baseball cards. Add in some drama to this guy's life, like armed robbery at a Kmart. Yes, armed robbery of packs of baseball cards. He's from Wisconsin, so that should also be figured into this fictional character. Oh, and he still lives with his parents. Do you have an image? Does your character look anything like Joseph Marciniak? He should. JUMP!
One thing we noticed last night about the fans behind home plate at K.C. games is that they are (1.) Overly obsese, (2.) White, (3.) 55+, (4.) Don't appear to be very wealthy, (5.) Share their seats with Tigers fan Bill Goldberg. Of course the Royals lost (3-2) - again - as Verlander threw a complete game. C'mon, white people of Kansas City. Find a new hobby. In other news, we hope doctors can save the Pakistani baby born with SIX LEGS! YES, 6 LEGS! Let's get rolling!
Sara sent us an email this afternoon re: #RangersRack. "Scuuba_Steve on Twitter said that you boys were on a mission! I know it's not TV coverage, but he recommended I send this to you anyway!" You know how we know this #RangersRack series is going to be huge? It's only April & some guy named Scuuba_Steve is sending ladies our way. That's power, folks. Relax, fellas, it's a Victoria's Secret Rangers shirt. BC approved for #RangersRack - JUMP!
Don't worry, there will be no Stanley Cup runners-up rioting this summer in Vancouver thanks to the L.A. Kings 3-0 series lead on the Canucks. That's right, #8 seed vs. #1 seed. 3-0 with two of the next three in California. Yes, you can buy your own Sedin Sisters t-shirt for only $17.99. In baseball news, the Dodgers this weekend turned one of the craziest triple plays in baseball history. The lesson here, kids, is to confuse the umpires into believing this is a triple play. Let's get rolling!
The Miami Marlins finally hit a homerun in their new stadium so you know what that means. This awkward structure of random Miami things got animated and water shot out of it. Omar Infante was the lucky Miami Marlin to nail the homerun in their new stadium. More Marlins memorabilia has been sold since the stadium opened than in the last 3 years combined. The video after the JUMP!
This graphics fail could have been a career ender for the intern working a SportsCenter Saturday shift. Look down at your keyboard and realize where the 'u' and the 'i' are located. Would've been the ESPN Intern Fail To End All Fails. Anyway, if you have time, tune in for some Rockets vs. Nuggers later this evening. In MLB news, could this be the end of Giants' closer Brian Wilson as we knew him? "Structural issues" in his pitching elbow. Let's get rolling!
There are a couple of things we focus on while watching the opening of a Yankees broadcast on the YES Network. First, who the hell is doing the color commentary that day. Oh great, another Ken Singleton afternoon. Wake me when the guy hits 1.5 on the decibel meter. The other is, "Holy shit, O'Neill and that bird nest is back." It's full-on Dustin Diamond this year. Love it. In the NBA, if you're Phoenix do you really want to make the playoffs? F-that. Let's get rolling!
Of course we Americans are big, fat pigs who'll consume giant food items because we're fascinated with challenges especially at baseball games. And here you thought Washington Nationals fans wouldn't order & eat the 8-pound, $56 StrasBurger. Blasphemy! Not only are they ordering it, they're documenting their exploits as if this is something to be proud of. You fat idiots deserve to die on the way home from blockage. Is that burger organic? Maybe we're in. JUMP!
The big news out of Southern Miss and Metairie, La. this week came from the school's baseball game against LSU where the ol' gunslinger showed up and decided to hang out in the dugout. LSU needed to get in a mid-week game so they invited Southern Miss to New Orleans to play at Zephyr Field. Good reason for a Brett Favre roadie. What else is he up to? Is it deer season? How did Brett got to the game? Guess. JUMP!
Well, that got old real quick. What was for a brief moment the cool thing to do with a pair of customized jerseys is now apparently what everyone is doing. The 99 problems and ain't 1 his and her customized jerseys were first spotted in Orlando, but they were seen this week at a Washington Nationals game. Soon, they'll be in a ballpark, arena or stadium near you. Can you wait? We certainly can't! JUMP!
You guys act like out of 80 some Rangers games you're going to get an insane #RangersRack on a daily basis. Isn't going to happen, assholes. There are days when we have to go with TatRack. She's not pregnant, just a professional beer slammer. Just look at that one button begging to be unleashed. Thing just blasts off and takes out Jim Knox's eyeball. Time for some of you to step up for this #RangersRack project. Mail 'em in: email@example.com
You know how we know the Cubs are off to a rough, 1-5 start this season? Chuck is able to spring for front row tickets. It's that simple. Chuck runs the Windy City now. The days of assholes in suits hitting a 2:15 first pitch at Wrigley seem to be over. In other MLB news, Boston is 1-5 and there are rumblings of this team being a giant disaster. The scribes are asking players how they'll be received when the Sox open at Fenway on Friday. With jeers, of course. Let's get rolling!
This #RangersRack project could be one of the greatest ideas in Busted Coverage history besides sending Kevin The Intern to the AVN porn convention for his Purdue graduation gift. Should have seen that guy's face. Priceless. Anyway, our old friend @Model_Barefoot is a Rangers fan and wanted to show off some mirror pics she snapped off this evening. Name another site doing sh*t like this in April. 162 games & we're busting out these pics 5 games in. JUMP!
Baltimore Orioles infielder Robert Andino isn't a happy guy. Apparently, playing for one of the league's worst franchises is taking its toll on the guy. Just look at the "Through the years" photo here. Andino used to be a happy, healthy go-getter. Now he's just another used up, beaten down unhappy member of a terrible baseball team. Take a look at the progression. It's quite startling.
Each time new photos of Larisa Fraser drop into our lap all we can think of is whether she's cool with SportsCenter/Baseball Tonight marathons after crazy master bedroom wall sex. Could be the best girlfriend EVER if she's down with what makes us happy. We'll be here waiting when she finally breaks it off with Jew Hardo Ryan Braun which probably isn't happening because he makes all that money & has crown molding in his master bedroom. JUMP!
With the wind chill it's somewhere around 44 in Chicago today. Definitely not shirtless, grab some rays, pound a few Buds and start throwing around $1 bills on some broad in the bleachers weather. But that's exactly what we found Brewers fan up to this afternoon (guessing hammered beyond a normal hammering) when logical bros were in hoodies. $50 says these two finished off the afternoon with some alley wall sex off Waveland. Send screencaps: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ok, so we're now addicted to all things Blue Jays & Rangers fans. Two craziest fan bases in baseball right now. It's sad, too, because Cubs fan used to be great on the Internet. Now they can't even fill the bleachers. Just look at this kid pulling his frosty draft out of the hunting jacket. Yes, we are fully aware & have taken advantage of the 19+ drinking age in Canada. Still. In the NBA, you think the Celtics can shoot 60% in the playoffs? Let's get rolling!
Our fascination with Texas Rangers fans became a 'thing' tonight here at BC HQ. A Fox cameraman was acting as if he was interested in what this kid was playing with on the Rangers dugout, but we know his real intention was to show off this Rangers mom rack. Some of the best racks in Major League baseball and the perfect weather throughout the year to show off those masterpieces. We need your help. See a #RangersRack? Send pics: email@example.com
Urban Dictionary says that 'YOLO' is translated to "You Only Live Once." So why not run out on the Skydome field during tonight's Blue Jays-Red Sox game in your Speedo? Seems like the logical move because you really don't care whether they kick you out of the ballpark for life. Doesn't matter, bro. You only live once. Video as it becomes available. We'll do our best. (HT: @JeehadMm)
Yes, Boston, we know you have a new sideline reporter. Thanks for telling us on Twitter, via email, etc. Of course we were aware of Jenny Dell when she got Heidi Watney's old Red Sox sideline reporting gig. Sure, Jenny has a great collection of photos from her pre-NESN days. But Jenny isn't the only rookie who made her MLB debut last week. Our old friend Britt McHenry did the same for Fox Sports San Diego as the voice of Padres' sidelines. JUMP!
Someone tell us when the Texas Rangers turned their baseball games into giant frat parties where people are in costumes, drunk, eating 2-foot, $26 hot dogs and partying like they're at an NFL game. Last night was Yu Darvish night and there were fans wearing Japanese flag capes, fans with a "Love Yu Long Time," sign and then there was Fake Bubba Watson sitting in the expensive seats. Best ballpark experience? This is like SEC football. JUMP!
So Ozzie Guillen is in the middle of a press conference to extinguish the flames from his rather complimentary statements towards Fidel Castro. Ozzie, being the moron he is, was quoted as saying he "loves Fidel Castro." Yep, that didn't go over very well in Miami where people who left Cuba on boats call home. Ozzie is now suspended 5 games and Cuban-Americans are furious. There are protests and Twitter is buzzing with loads of f-bombs. JUMP!
Can't say we remember a catcher as desirable to Canadian ladies as Blue Jays backstop J. P. Arencibia. The guy is a career .212 hitter and here he is with fans saying it's "B-Jay Time!" Unreal. What did we learn about the MLB last night? Yu Darvish is probably a decent pitcher but got slapped around by a weak Seattle team. Finally, are you an old WCW fan? Yes, the wrestling league. You MUST see these old photos. Let's get rolling!
Imagine walking around Jacobs Field (or whatever they're calling it) and there are like 500 people milling around. Then you see a giant black guy who looks like Rick Ross. You just happen to be wearing your 'Caucasians' Indians shirt. You get closer and realize that's not Ross, it's actually the infamous Mo Vaughn all bundled up for an April Cleveland Indians game. Seriously, no Photoshop used here. WTF is Mo Vaughn doing in Cleveland? JUMP!
Busted Coverage is putting together a personalized baseball jersey project where we track the best and worst from MLB fans. You have 160 games to snap photos of baseball jerseys. BC wants the great ones (exp: #69 jerseys) and the ones like #15 Tebow spotted today outside Camden Yards. Bonus points if a hot chick is wearing the jersey. Send in the pics & if they're worthy you'll get a post: firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's take a journey into the world of community college baseball and let's pretend, maybe the smartest guys don't play there. Case in point. Things get a little chippy in this clip, but ultimately nothing happens even after the benches clear. That is, except for the left fielder, who lays a vicious cheap shot on the unsuspecting guy minding his own business on second base. Way to go, brah! You showed him! JUMP!
Yesterday, we asked for more photos of the body paint chicks at the Miami Marlins home opener on Wednesday night and guess what shows up this afternoon? That's right, close-ups of the body painting process. Everyone can relax, those are nipple stickers. As BC mentioned, $75 gets you into the Clevelander at Marlins Park where you can watch the game, get drunk and even go for a swim with the ladies. New bachelor party destination? Think so. JUMP!
Opening Day in Texas! Big acquisition in the offseason was Yu Darvish and that means the Rangers also acquired a couple new Asian trainers to work on Yu's shoulders. For some strange reason the organization wanted to recognize these new hired guns and that's when hilarity ensues. Legendary P.A. announcer Chuck Morgan gets through one strange name but the second & third don't escape getting butchered. JUMP!
