Welcome to a new series here at Busted Coverage where we use the Internet to revisit some of the finer moments in sports history via our research abilities. We'll look into the histories of athletes, members of the media and how those stories have relevancy all these years later. Today BC flashes back to 1978. The Cowboys had just beaten the Green Bay Packers and a 26-year-old Skip Bayless had attacked Tony Dorsett just two weeks before the game. JUMP!
For those of you who are new around here let's catch up on old Busted Coverage news. We've always been intrigued with Matthew Stafford and his girlfriend Kelly Hall. Why? Because BC has poked fun at them, wondered about Staffs pounding beers & published their vacation photos. If anything, it was just a matter of time before a lawyer wrote us an email. But it didn't happen. Now Kelly follows our tweets & even agreed to chat after the Lions-Cowboys thriller. JUMP!
You know him from Monday Night Football and, um, well, Monday Night Football. Hank Williams Jr. had a couple hits before the Internet existed, became an enraged Republican/Tea Party/angry white guy. Yesterday he let it all fly on Fox & Friends where he likened President Obama to Hitler. The day ended with ESPN pulling his MNF opener and Twitter blazing hot with NSFW tweets. Luckily, those tweets were still pouring in this morning. JUMP!
Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush didn't do much on the field during Sunday's loss to the San Diego Chargers, but he had a good time in his hometown and in L.A. Bush headed up the 5 and hit the club scene after the game, had a few drinks and looked at some dancing broads. All in all, a fine way to spend a Sunday evening drowning your sorrows. Check it out here!
Just now catching up on DVRs from over the weekend and getting our first look at Angela Rypien's Lingerie Football League debut Friday night in Green Bay. What have we learned about Mark Rypien's daughter and her football abilities? She can throw a football, just not accurately at this time. She also has one helluva mean streak in her that came out during a play late in the first quarter. Sean Salisbury has the color as Angela gets a personal foul. JUMP!
What a great day in the NFL for those of you who take to Twitter to drop f-bombs, dick jokes, etc. towards QBs who blow a 24-point lead. Tony Romo had a 3rd quarter for the ages with two INTs returned for TDs. Um, those were on consecutive drives. Instead of winning, going 3-1 and staying with the pack in the NFC East, the Cowboys are a ho hum 2-2. If you like NSFW tweets and black dudes destroying the dictionary, this one is for you. JUMP!
Busted Coverage has boots on the ground in Madison, Wisconsin for ESPN GameDay stop. It’s Nebraska's first Big Ten game and Wisconsin's high-powered offense seems poised to pound the ball down their throats . The students are fired up with their corn-inspired signs. Cheeseheads are up early and we assuming drinking heavily. They have crazy ass signs to show mom and dad back home in Eau Claire. Here are your best of the best. Enjoy.
Listen up, fatties, there's a new diet on the market thanks to Erin Andrews. It's ironically called the Erin Andrews Weekly Diet and it's pretty simple. The problem with your giant ass is that you've been eating wrong all along. That garbage 'organic' crap you're getting from Trader Joe's or Whole Foods? Straight to the trash. Pageviews, in an interview with Marie Claire, tells us how she eats on a weekly basis. Guys, get your wife's giant caboose to Arby's TONIGHT! Double curly! JUMP!
The message was loud and clear from Busted Coverage Nation. Our recent '58 Greatest Tailgating Rides' post fired up the readership and meant several submissions from those of you who felt slighted. We're sorry. Art sent in his J-E-T-S ride that helps even the drunkest fan find home base. Falcons fan wanted his family's ambulance recognized. So many of you have poured your life into these rides. Keep submitting them. firstname.lastname@example.org Preferably w/chicks in photos.
Need more examples of why Indiana University football is the smell of rotten flesh being scrapped off the BCS floor? Remember IU football coach acting like a giant hardo back in August in a radio interview? Yeah, his team is 1-3 with a victory over South Carolina State. He might only get two wins all year. And one of the best RBs on the IU roster, Darius Willis, was wrasslin' Saturday night. Dude is supposed to have a knee injury. Lucky us, the IU student newspaper has the video.
The Twitter direct messages were flying feverishly last night as we coached Busted Coverage NHL Pucktress @JessicaRedfield on how to make a Lingerie Football League bet at MGM. "Jess, just tell the guy at the sportsbook that you want to put $25 on the Green Bay Chill," was all we had to tell this Vegas Virgin. And we wake up this morning to this Twitter message about the photos: "It's Vegas. There will be cleavage. Cool?" Hopefully it's cool with you guys. JUMP!
Digest this: MGM in Vegas has the Green Bay Chill as +6.5 home dogs tomorrow night against the Seattle Mist a Lingerie Football League tilt. Maybe you remember we told you in the spring that Mark Rypien's daughter would be under center for the Mist. Look, we're big Angela Rypien fans. She's the only offspring of a Super Bowl winning QB that'll talk to us via email. But this number looks too high. What makes us say that? There are several factors. JUMP!
If you don't know by now that Busted Coverage has a man-crush on Cam Newton, where have you been? Look, we're straight hetero, but how can we deny Newton's dominance over us. Warlock. Now comes news that the NFL Rookie of the Month will soon be wearing these pink Under Armour shoes. Media maven @billvoth reports: "Pic of Cam Newton's pink shoes he'll most likely break out some time in October." GULP. Love 'em.
We're closing in on Week 4 of the NFL season so it's now or never for our NFL Cheerleader Overload project where we dissect squads and provide you with ample material to waste company time. Today we get started with the world famous Charger Girls. Call it an East Coast bias or whatever you want, but these ladies are overlooked by 90% of the U.S. TV viewer. Of course we know the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are cute. Um, wait until you peruse this overload. BOLTS! JUMP!
It wasn't all good news out of the St. Louis Cardinals camp last night. Just on a hunch we decided to check in with Bianca LaRussa, Tony's daughter, because her father was all over our TV. A look at the Raiderettes page was confusing. Where was Bianca for the Raiders home opener against the Jets. Time to check Twitter. BOOM! There it was, an update late last night. The news wasn't pretty. While Tony celebrates, his daughter's cheerleading career could be over. JUMP!
BC reader Kyle in Chicago wants to know if this should be considered a bad beat. "All I need is for Notre Dame and Brady to show up. Thats it!. Then N.E. defense takes a shit against the Bills. Was sick for at least 48 hours." Well, Kyle, that's how Vegas keeps paying for those Russian hookers serving you top shelf tequila. You figure N.D. gets the win and the Patriots win by 13. Then this happens. Get 'em next week, champ. Best way to come back is double your bets. Let's get rolling.
The "Teach Me How To Gundy" video has taken on a life of its own, and for good reason. College football coaches shouldn't be doing dances like this anywhere. Fortunately, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy forgot about the existence of YouTube. Poor bastard! His idiocy is our gain, though. We're skipping the original video because it's too damn long. It's already been remixed with music and a couple other Gundy highlights and the results are much, much better. Check it!
Who is @ScottPetrak? He's some journalist notebook jockey for the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram and has the Browns beat. Here's what Scott Dog dropped on the Twitter-verse today: "Sorry, single ladies. Hot rumor from
#Browns locker room: RB Peyton Hillis is engaged." And with that, disgusting, 230-pounders from Broadview Heights had their hearts ripped from their chests. Our investigators start the hunt for the future Mrs. Hillis. JUMP!
This Tom Brady press conference just went down like around 10:30 EST. We would have been busting this out quicker but a Lingerie Football League post was being constructed. Priorities. Anyway, Tom Brady showed up with a haircut. The luscious locks are history. That's not just one of those cuts where the hat is hiding the hood. Back of the neck is clean. Twitter accounts out of Boston are going nuts. For those who want to watch the presser and shed a tear, HERE.
As you know COED Magazine (BC's big bro site) & AXE are on an epic trip to attend some of the most highly anticipated college football games of the year and complete the AXE Ultimate College Football Bucket List . BC was included on to the Florida State game vs Oklahoma trip with Quinn the AXE Mannequin & it was an incredible time. Check out the pictures. This past week the crew was in Tempe, AZ for the USC vs ASU game which saw the Sun Devils beat The Trojans for the first time in a decade. Here are the pictures from this weekend.
It wasn't very close in our very first NFL Hottest Fan Photo-Off between @Heathero14 and @HemiGirl. 75% of the vote went to Heather, who went with a pool/wet Romo jersey photoshoot to get the victory. Meanwhile, Hemi was a gracious loser, pretty much knowing she was in trouble after Heather unleashed a see-through gallery that had her 19,000 Twitter followers in a frenzy. To the victor goes the spoils. That would be a 50 photo gallery of Heather's best work. JUMP!
It was just a few years ago when the world was bitching about Detroit holding a Super Bowl at Ford Field - which is covered with a roof. Today, the NFL released its 2014 Super Bowl logo featuring the George Washington Bridge and a snowflake. That's right, folks, the NFL has turned into the NHL and actually wants you to freeze your ass off with an outside game in February. In New Jersey. They're actually hoping for a light snow. Seriously. Already hoping for snow! JUMP!
What say you, Cowlishaw? Vick. Beef? Does he have one? Witty comment, NOW! In other news, the MNF game was an ugly victory for the Cowboys, 18-16. The 'Boys kicked six field goals for the win. If you are on the East Coast and have to be up by 6 a.m., the plug was pulled by half. Moving on...a HUGE college football weekend is close. In case you didn't realize, Alabama-Florida, Clemson-Va. Tech, Air Force-Navy, and Wisconsin-Nebraska to name a few. Let's get rolling!
It has been almost two years since the Ducks played a football game in Tuscon, but the cheerleading team hasn't forgotten what happened on that Nov. night. Legendary Ducks cheerleader Katelynn Johnson was drilled with a full water bottle in a postgame disaster. Who can possibly forget the beautiful blonde cheerleader laying on the field while medical personnel attended to her? Not us. Not the current cheerleaders, either. We shall never forget! JUMP!
Lee Corso is 76 years old after celebrating his birthday back in Aug. As those of you with grandparents know, being away from a toilet is like playing with firecrackers. One of these days you're going to get a finger blasted off. Or in the case of Corso, you'll try to hit the head & some GameDay 'guest' will be in the portable toilet. Such was the case Saturday just minutes before Lee wore the Mike The Tiger mascot head. It was quite a scene as Corso tried to drain the monster. JUMP!
Imagine our surprise after throwing up a Craigslist job offer on the Morgantown board returned like 15 job candidates for our Busted Coverage WVU-LSU Street Team. We settled on Candy & Mandy who promised to give WVU fans a show and be just dirty enough to make LSU fans feel like they were on Bourbon Street. Candy (the one with F$%^ LSU) reported that her and Mandy started drinking Nattys at 9:30 while watching Erin Andrews work GameDay at the Mountainlair. More fun! JUMP!
At first he was in awe of Curtis Painter, the hair, his Jeff Spicoli appearance and the likelihood that the Purdue grad had loaded a massive bong load before last night's Steelers-Colts surpriser. James Harrison's jaw showed his shock as Painter pulled on a helmet and nearly got his team to 1-2. But it didn't happen as Harrison would eventually sack Goldilocks, causing a fumble that would lead to a Polamalu TD. Another work week is here. Get your ass in gear.
Busted Coverage has boots on the ground in Morgantown for the first ever stop for ESPN GameDay. It's WVU-LSU and the Mountaineers have never beaten a #1 or #2 ranked team. The students have been camped outside the Mountainlair Student Union for days in anticipation for today's world broadcast. They're boozed up, ready to go and have crazy ass signs to show mom and dad back home in Clarksburg. Here are your best of the best. Enjoy. JUMP!
Brian Kelly has, admittedly, a tough job. He's the Notre Dame football coach. Notre Dame fans demand perfection and they haven't got a lot of that in recent years. The team is off to a 1-2 start this season, but spirits are high after the Irish beat Michigan State last weekend. And Kelly? Well, he's doing his part. He didn't get the memo to wear a blaze orange hat, but he did show up for this fraternity pyramid photo op. You know you want to know more...
Brett Favre is back, people! You knew he couldn't stay away forever... or a full season. We're sorry to tell you Favre fan boys he's only coming back to be a color commentator for Southern Miss, his alma mater, for one game. The important thing is Brett Favre and his gigantic ego are getting back to football in some form. Surely, this will be a monumental event. Not only do we have the details, but we're also going to tell you what to expect from Favre. Check it out!
Shocker of the day! New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who we pretty much assumed crawled into a hole under a bridge in the offseason, has a fairly hot girlfriend. Her name is Linda Holliday and if you like MILFs, well, then this is your lucky day! What do we have for you? The story of Bill Belichick, Linda Holliday and a bunch of pics of her MILF-ey goodness. Check it!
Busted Coverage, known for our lack of interest in following the pack of sports bloggers who've popped up over the last 14 months, is proud to announce our new 'NFL's Hottest Fan Championship Series.' The Internet - we're looking at you - loves hot ladies wearing their team colors. How do we know? Because the stats don't lie. Enter @HemiGirl & @Heathero14. The ladies agreed to a jersey mirror-off. One forgot a jersey & the other forgot the mirror. Oh, who cares? JUMP!
Oh, chill out all you politically correct readers who freak out when some college kid goes blackface at a football game. It's obvious the school was calling for a blackout from their fans. It seems Brad took it to the next level. Sweet leather jacket, brah. Looks like Nicole Brown is smitten. In other news, Vick has been cleared to play Sunday. Adjust your parlays accordingly. We're in Pittsburgh with a final destination of Morgantown, WV this afternoon. Let's get rolling. (via @bubbaprog)
They're loving the Lions in Detroit. The team is off to a 2-0 start and the locals are talking playoffs for the first time in... longer than we can remember. Local celebrities are turning up for games too. Lions fan Bob Seger was spotted in the team's locker room after last week's win. He had himself a little cry while he was there, too. Ah, to be a Lions fan. It seems like the threat of success has Bullet Bob a little choked up.
Donver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker burst on the scene with a 100-yard, two touchdown performance against the Cincinnati Bengals in week two. It looks like Decker is doing even better off the field, though. He's dating country-pop singer Jessica James. And wouldn't you know it! We've got a hot-ass gallery just for you! C'mon in and take a look at the best decision Eric Decker ever made.
To this day it remains one of Busted Coverage's greatest hits with the male student population on the West Virginia University campus. Last year BC became a destination for Morgantown nutjobs wanting to see their cheerleaders in the wild, doing crazy #$%^ not seen on Facebook or in some stupid Twitpic gallery. Thanks to our sources, the galleries kept coming. But we never had a HUGE football game to do a retrospective. Here you go, boys. Start clicking. JUMP!
