Someone please make it end. This tournament week just can't end fast enough for the ESPN Intern Department. We were asked on Twitter why we keep saying ESPN is firing interns over these f-ups. Well, because these errors couldn't possibly be made by competent employees. There are still plenty of games to go. Have your eyes open and when you send us ESPN fails, make sure to use the 'large' function on your iPhone: email@example.com
Would Jeremy Lin, compared by many as the Tim Tebow of the NBA for his Christian beliefs and ability to bring Skip Bayless to his knees, be in a nightclub with his Knicks teammates? Here's what we know about this photo that is starting to make its rounds on the Internet: that's Landry Fields (upper right) and Jared Jeffries in the Marines shirt. As for the two guys hanging with the white chicks? JUMP!
King's College, situated in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., has a women's Division III Sweet 16 game at 5 p.m. in Amherst, Mass. Meanwhile, in Cancun, one of the school's all-time leading scorers will be enjoying sun & whatever else kids do on spring break. Paige Carlin might have drained 1,000 career points at King's, but she chose to leave the team after Saturday's game and hit the Gulf of Mexico beaches. Sweet 16 with teammates vs. spring break? Who you got? JUMP!
The one area where Michael Jordan has been solid in his GM duties for the Charlotte Bobcats has been in the dancer department. What, he's not in charge of hiring dancers? Um, he should be claiming responsibility because the basketball team he puts on the court is horrid - 5-32. The only good news at a Bobcats game? You get to see Lindsay shake it during timeouts. Otherwise, this basketball outpost is a giant waste of time. JUMP!
At this point next week ESPN will need like 40-50 interns to replace all those fired this week over lazy errors during conference tourney action. Sure, the WWL has hundreds of thousands of minutes of coverage in a year, which will result in logo errors. You see, SDSU has a jackrabbit logo. Like these. Anyway, in MLB news, you have to see the fortune Indians manager Manny Acta got at P.F. Chang's. Let's get rolling!
BC can preach to ESPN staffers until we're red in the face about getting some rest before conference tourney Thursday. 49 f-ing games today. Of course ESPN was going to f-up along the way, but this garbage is just so blatant there should be an intern packing his backpack over this one. Lucky for us, BC reader Travis was watching and reported: ESPN needs to fire their intern. SMH. Shaking our heads indeed, Travis. NOT EVEN THE RIGHT CONFERENCE! SHAPE UP!
USA! USA! USA! If you really want to stick it to someone who's Hispanic or, we presume, some other nationality, you should just break out the USA chant. Why? Well, all the kids are doing it. It's hip. It's cool. It's the thing to do! Actually, we're just kidding. It's probably not the thing to do. In fact, it's probably totally idiotic. Some kids in San Antonio did it anyway after their predominantly-white high school beat a predominantly-Hispanic high school in hoops. Now they're in real trouble.
Nope, Mo Williams doesn't play for the Cleveland Cavaliers these days. He's actually a Clippers scrub. However, that isn't stopping Cavs.com from congratulating him - today - on his NBA All-Star game appearance - in 2009! Guess there is a glitch in the system because this splash page was live at 9:47 when the guys at Waiting For Next Year brought it our attention. By 10:17 the crack web crew had fixed things. Good work, boys.
Not sure what grocery store has advanced to this stage of ripping off kids, but AP photographer @evanvucci shows us that stupid plastic balls are officially history. In Linsanity news, the star is fading fast. Sure, he had 20 last night, but Tony Parker had 32 and the Spurs shot 54% from the field in a 118-105 win. The Knicks free fall continues as they are now 18-21. Meanwhile, the NY Post has turned to 'Texas Toast' headlines. Let's get rolling!
Yesterday we met the mini cheerleading dynamo that is South Carolina's Taryn. After a little more digging, BC Spirit Editor Asher is back with another round of this 5-footer with insane abs and even more bikini photos. Yes, we're trying to keep you SEC guys entertained. We know that boring SEC basketball tournament is of little interest. That said, here's one more shot of Taryn to enjoy this afternoon while listening to Finebaum. JUMP!
Anyone know if this is an actual cellphone? If so, we're buying one. Let us know where we can get one: firstname.lastname@example.org In other basketball news, how is the Jeremy Lin Experience going? He was 4-of-13 last night in Dallas. The Knicks lost 95-85 and their record fell to 18-20. Yes, that puts them in the 8th playoff position. How bad are things for Linsanity? The NY tabloids say Linsanity is over. Let's get rolling!
Seriously, we understand you guys aren't getting much sleep this week. We understand Gottieb is P90Xing between Big East games. It's only Tuesday and one of your jerkoff interns goes and pulls this logo switcheroo. Get it together, team WWL. Need to crack the whip and realize that this is one giant f-ing mess before going live with it on SportsCenter. Who's producing this show? Doesn't this raise red flags. Have an ESPN fail we need to see? email@example.com
Of course BC knows you SEC freaks - besides Kentucky fan - is at home twiddling your thumbs not sure what to do in March before the big spring game. That means we need to entertain the rest of you until football returns in April. So we've told BC Spirit Editor Asher to get his ass in gear and find us the hottest of the hottest SEC cheerleaders. He visited Columbia, South Carolina and discovered Taryn, a tiny 5-foot firecracker. JUMP!
The price of gold on September 8, 2008 was $808 an ounce. Yesterday gold was $1,705 an ounce. A Chipotle burrito was $6.25. That same burrito today is $6.50. Costs are up everywhere. So why hasn't the cost of renting the UCLA cheerleaders gone up with the times. Way back in 2008 we discovered that it was possible to rent a UCLA cheerleader. The price was $100. Yep, it's the same price today. Still one of the greatest deals in sports. JUMP!
Kudos go out to @Saksadelic for watching closely during last night's 76ers-Bucks baby crawl competition. Gotta love Milwaukee moms going commando. We do. In case you were wondering, Bucks won 97-93. As for March Madness, teams last night punching tickets include: VCU, Saint Mary's, Davidson & Loyola (MD). Basketball junkies will be happy to know that the Big East tourney kicks off today at Noon. 9 televised games today. Let's get rolling!
So what if they can't spell at the University of North Carolina? They're ACC champs, dammit! Here's a lesson in taunting, courtesy of the North Carolina and Duke student governments. Rule No. 1 when chiding an opponent via Twitter is to know how to spell. Unfortunately, some people who go to UNC failed to observe this rule. Someone from Duke was, of course, happy to help them understand. Here's the rundown. JUMP!
We hired new BC Spirit Editor Asher away from his old gig at College Cheer Heaven because the guy is a genius when it comes to discovering untapped cheerleading talent at non-BCS schools. Take today, for example. The guy noses around the University of Louisiana-Lafayette until he finds this Parris chick. She's just cheering in obscurity and - BOOM - all of a sudden she's a star. Wait until you see her in a bikini - JUMP!
Have you noticed the new trend among black athletes? They have to out-cool each other with some sort of trendy accessory. Glasses, of course, are the new cool thing to wear on your face. Did you watch TV during NBA All-Star weekend? You know what we're talking about. Then we have LeBron James, yesterday, setting a new fashion trend that just might have taken out-cooling to a level only LeBron could. America didn't react well to this purse. JUMP!
Good chance you've never (a.) heard of a former basketball player from Louisiana-Lafayette by the name of Anthony Johnson, and (b.) watched an Air Asia ASEAN Basketball League brawl. Before broadband these Asian basketball league fights would be underground on VHS tapes. Today we get to seen Johnson yesterday drilling this Asian over a hard foul in a heated game between the Air Asia Patriots & the San Miguel Beermen. Seriously, that's the teams nickname. JUMP!
How about those Buckeyes getting their asses handed to them in the first half, only to make a huge comeback and grab a share of the B1G title - on MSU's court. Still, the #1 seeds have to be Kansas, UK, Syracuse, Duke/UNC, right? Better ACC performance gets the #1 seed in the West? In NBA news, who was guarding Rajon Rondo yesterday? Is that Jeremy Lin's guy? Rondo only went 18-17-20, giving Faux Bird some softball shorts wood. Let's get rolling!
You want a March Madness photo, punks? YOU REALLY WANT A PHOTO THAT PAINTS A PICTURE OF MARCH MADNESS. DO YOU? Ok, we are stuck at BC HQ watching these basketball games and happened upon this Illinois St. assistant coach. One of you knows his name. Drop us a line. We'd like to properly recognize this guy for those eyeballs. firstname.lastname@example.org
This little kid looks psyched for the Boston Celtics-New York Knicks game today. The other guy in the picture? Not so much. Jeremy Lin struggled in the beginning of the game so there wasn't much Linsanity. Spike Lee showed up in another ridiculous outfit. Doc Rivers gave us his best confused/what the hell just happened face. Steve Novak showed that he just does not miss 3 pointers. JUMP!
The Florida Gators were relentless in making fun of this Kentucky Wildcat team as they rolled into Gainesville this weekend. Students have been camping out since Friday for this game. Anthony Davis was the subject of much ridicule where Gator fans made signs ripping on his notorious unibrow. In case you are wondering, yes the unibrow is moveable. JUMP!
It's no secret that Peyton Manning has been training at Duke this week. Well he showed up for the Duke-UNC basketball game where the winner of the game wins the ACC regular season championship. The Cameron Crazies were are insane as ever. A random Duke fan sung the National Anthem and looked as awkward as possible. Also, we aren't sure what the hell Erin Andrews was wearing. JUMP!
Our boots on the ground in Durham sent us this shot from Cameron Indoor where it was learned that the Duke dance team has a male member and it appears he has some serious sugar in those shorts. What was supposed to be an investigation into the dance team turned into a 'WTF, there's a black dude on the Duke dance team,' post. We're not sure whether he performs during on-court routines. Efforting. Anyway, this has to be a Duke first, right? JUMP!
A very well done 'Ball So Hard' sign made it's way onto College Gameday for the Duke Blue Devils and UNC Tarheels that showed the ending buzzer beater of the time the last two teams met. Of course this is a reference from a Jay-Z and Kanye West song and the addition of Austin Rivers makes this sign awesome. Erin Andrews interviewed probably the palest Duke girl on the face of the planet. JUMP!
Is the downfall of Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom complete? We're not entirely sure, but last year's NBA Sixth Man of the Year just got shipped off to the D-League. Lamar will be spending some time with the Texas Legends, who, decidedly, are not composed of Legends. The Mavs made the move so Lamar could get into mental and physical shape. Ouch! We trace Odom's downfall back to its roots. You probably won't be surprised what we find.
There might be a couple of you old coots reading this who remember March 3, 1962. That was a Saturday morning when you old coots woke up and read that Wilt Chamberlain dropped 100 points on the Knicks the night before in Hershey, PA. In Miami it was HUGE news. In Saskatoon, not so much. Thanks to the Internet and newspaper archives we can go back and see how those paginators played Wilt's accomplishment. JUMP!
Via: Amber D. Ginn, 19, attended an East Central girls basketball game on January 17. During the game, she allegedly snuck into the locker room and stole $370 from the lockers of four players. Surveillance video in the hallway outside the locker room helped lead police to identify Ginn as a suspect. According to a court affidavit, Ginn admitted to the theft. She was arrested Tuesday. Just lucky there was $370 in lockers or inside intel? This one smells.
It kinda flew under the radar over the weekend that The Mailman is now making wordy deliveries on Twitter such as this gem about a witches tit in Nebraska. The choice of @TheDeliverer_32 is kinda odd since themailman_32 was available. So who's The Deliverer following? Of course the Huntsman Daughters and Karl Malone Jr. Follow The Deliverer & you'll figure out he likes to call his followers 'grasshoppers.' Why? No idea, but it's keeping us intrigued.
Gotta figure this mask will be auctioned off for charity once Black Mamba's nose heals. Kinda figuring a game-used NBA mask could fetch at least $5k. It's unique, has been on Kobe's face and was used in a 31 point, 8 assist, 7 rebound blowout of the Timberwolves. As for Jeremy Lin, he had a nosebleed last night which pushed him off the NY Post backpage for a white guy. Efforting the last time a white NBA player made backpage. Has to be years. Let's get rolling!
That is a full-page advertorial in today's Crimson White, the University of Alabama student newspaper. Easily the greatest filler ad in Alabama newspaper history & that's even counting daily newspapers. What's the occasion? Oh, the Auburn Tigers are in town for an 8 p.m. EST basketball tip. The Crimson Tide are 19-9, presumably a couple wins away from an NCAA bid & the Tigers are 14-14 & planning Spring Break trips. [Watch live on ESPN3]
BC Spirit Editor Asher sent word today that he was investigating a cheerleader he'd been hearing about at Arkansas State. Not that she'd done anything wrong. It was just that his sources were telling him that there were come wild chicks in the Sun Belt Conference. This is exactly why we hired Asher. He's not just reposting USC Song Girls pics. He's giving the mid-major cheerleaders a chance to shine on the Internet. JUMP!
Is there a Holy Grail of athlete real estate? Yes, there is and it's the mansion in Highland Park, IL that Michael Jordan is trying to sell. We go through these athlete real estate deals on a daily basis and this $29,000,000 pad speaks for itself. Even Pete Sampras's mansion can't compete. Ever wanted your own basketball arena? Ever wanted 27,000 sq. ft. of house? Are you a new Facebook millionaire? Jump on this one!
While the Lakers are bitching about one thing or another, the Los Angeles Clippers are having a good time and leading the Pacific Division. Yeah, we still don't believe it either, but maybe it's because they're a bunch of stupid kids who don't understand the significance of the Clippers leading anything. Take center DeAndre Jordan, who likes to take photos of his teammates sleeping. Creepy, but also funny. Here are some of the best. JUMP!
Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah just had a birthday. He went to St. Bart's to celebrate. Neither of these things are important, though. What is important is who he celebrated with. We don't know her name, but the ugliest dude in the NBA was actually spotted with a fairly hot lass. We can only attribute how this happened to the fact that he's rich. There's really no other explanation. Here's a look. Won't you please tell us more? JUMP!
