Joe Flacco, as we told you a couple weeks ago, got hitched this summer and there was a wedding photo embargo that was officially pulled today. Not content with the typical wedding party photos, Flacco and his bride went whimsy. Busted Coverage Associate Editor Monty isn't buying the act and has had enough of Flacco's New Jersey 'Situation' act. Get ready for Joe to get destroyed and more pics - JUMP!
We know how crazy you guys get when it comes to ogling athlete rides. Just last weekend our post on Joe Johnson's paint job on his Ford F-650 generated tens of thousands of pageviews. Now comes an NFLers truck that you can buy and say you're sitting in the same seat as 10-year-vet Hank Fraley. Have a spare $42,900 sitting around? This 2008 F-450 beast can be yours. More photos and full details - JUMP!
Crest Hill, Illinois Mayor Raymond Soliman would like you to know that he's protecting his town from the evil-doers from the Lingerie Football League. That's right, Ray has made a decision to BAN Lingerie Football League players from the Chicago Bliss, who were scheduled to appear at a photography booth. Wearing shorts. T-shirts. You see, there are government officials out there just trying to protect your children from EVIL hot chicks. The steamy details - JUMP!
It has been nearly two years since Paige Duke was first profiled on Busted Coverage. It was the Summer of '09 and we were running a Hottest Of The SEC post and needed a headliner. Paige was the girl, but we never provided you animals with her last name. Well, guess who's in the news this morning for 5 VERY, VERY NSFW photos that were posted to the Internet and since removed. Too late. She's lost her job as Miss Sprint Cup. Guess who has that '09 gallery? Here!
Brooke Daniels, the former Miss Texas being sued by Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams, has apparently gone from the majors to the minors. Daniels is now dating University of Houston infielder David Murphy and his .241 batting average. Our editors, as BC always does, went the extra mile and dug deep to figure out how a Houston baseball player is hooking up with Roy's ex. Dude goes from the bench to this. JUMP!
Late last week before most Twitter dorks shut down their operations for the three-day holiday pre-Casey Anthony verdict, Tennessee talking head Clay Travis was wondering about a tattoo. He, specifically, was talking about the rumor that Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron was sportin' a 'Bama Boy' Jesus tat on his back. Well, after a little digging it has come to our attention that the tat does belong to McCarron, but it's on his chest. Evidence - JUMP!
Our Austin tipsters pointed us in the direction of Cedric Benson's house last night where there was a huge pool party & chance for ladies to scope out Ced's pad. The bash came complete with a theme name "Top of the World Independence Day Pool Party," an open bar, glow necklaces and a DJ spinning House. A bright spot in all this for Ced, the Bengals & NFL? No DUIs and/or headlines on TMZ! 68 photos from the bash at Ced's - JUMP!
The Internets are buzzing this morning over yesterday's July 4th parade antics in Upper Arlington, Ohio where it was laud Jim Tressel's day. However, the real parade gold near Columbus on the 4th was in tony neighborhood Dublin where the 28th annual Doo Dah Parade also featured spoof parade floats such as the Fine Lyin' Tattoos skit, complete with a politically incorrect blind, fake Jim Tressel. More - JUMP!
While there have been many sad moments in the life of JaMarcus Russell (like burning through 1st-overall cash) is the fact that the house he has for sale in Oakland is now online for all to see. That's usually not embarrassing, but when your worthless jersey is still hanging above the fireplace, it signals failure. Just a hunch - Tom Brady doesn't have one of his framed jerseys hanging above his fireplace. Full gallery and details of this pad - JUMP!
Happy Canada Day, everyone! To celebrate, we’ve put together a ton of CFL cheerleaders for your viewing pleasure. With the NFL not even close to returning later this month, us American football freaks are left with tonight's doubleheader featuring Winnipeg at Hamilton followed by Toronto at Calgary. If you have CBC on your cable box, consider yourself lucky. For the rest of us we'll just be over here ogling the cheerleaders. JUMP!
PEOPLE, REMAIN CALM. THE PLANKING FAD WILL END. Might be tomorrow. Might be over the three-day weekend. Might end July 22. Rest assured, it'll end. But for now, roll with it. Embrace it. Never before in the history of the Internet have we seen more photographs of black athletes NOT in a jail then right now. Um, but have the Pouncey twins officially taken this fad too far? A triple plank on top of a fridge? Too gay? Photos - JUMP!
And the trend of uploading bar bills to Twitter rolls on with DeSean Jackson showing off his trip to The Colony the other night. The final tally: 17 minutes after pulling into da club = $10,335.82. Look, all for these ballers bragging about how much they spent on booze. Would totally be doing the same thing. But, guys, at least black out those bottled waters tallying $48. That just screams moron. On the other hand, the 4 Ace of Spades commands respect - JUMP!
Cincinnati media is going nuts today over the news that Carson Palmer's suburban 5,500 sq. ft. house has sold for $1,915,000. The 5 bed, 5.5 bath house has "Pool, Spa, Golf Green, Pond & Lush landscaping" according to the real estate listing. From what we can see, it's also a pretty boring pad. But this is the sign, for most Bengals backers, that the QB is serious about this plan to never play for the team ever again. The house was bought for $2mm & change in 2003. Pics - JUMP!
Our boy Cam Newton was in Vegas over the weekend for the Warren Moon Sports Dream Foundation Charity reception with other luminaries such as Michael Irving, Jerry Rice, Ray Lewis, Too Tall Jones, Eric Dickerson, etc. But the big news for Busted Coverage was that our future meal ticket (in case you didn't hear, we own his BCS pants - value skyrocketing!) was having some bro time with his big brother Cecil Newton Jr. at the craps table. Go crazy, SEC Nation!
It was an exhaustive process tracking down the 42 most important college football Twitter accounts of 2011, but that's what interns are for. Kevin The Intern's Associate Intern, Garrett, was tasked with researching and tracking down the most influential, creative and must-reads that'll get us through college football '11. If you are on this list, congrats. It also means Busted Coverage will have at least 6-7 pairs of eyes on you at all times. Make us proud, boys. Full list - JUMP!
If you listen to NFL Draft sites such as NFLDraftScout.com, you'd know that Nebraska WR Brandon Kinnie is ranked as the 41st WR available for the 2012 Draft. Yes, that's too many uses of Draft in one sentence. Deal with it. Anyway, Kinnie could play in the NFL, but we figure he'll now be forever known as the first college football player to pull off the regulation basketball hoop planking. Yes, this is now the 3rd planking post today on BC. Deal with it. JUMP!
Big news from the NFL Lockout® front where QBs are getting married at a dizzying rate. Joe Flacco went very low key over the weekend and managed to get married with only 2-3 Twitter messages even mentioning it - and no photos! The lucky lady is Dana Grady, his high school girlfriend of 9 years. Nope, she doesn't have a unibrow. That's her with Vanilla Ice. Seems like a lovely lady. What else can we report? The couple was registered at Crate & Barrel. More - JUMP!
It's the summer of wedding gift registries around here. First it was our purchase of a knife sharpener for Tony Romo's nuptials, then a $25 napkin for Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries and now a $5 Lenox napkin for Ben Roethlisberger's wedding. The big news, right now, surrounding the Roethlisberger ceremony has to be the nearly $5,000 in gifts THAT HAVEN'T been bought for the Steelers multi-millionaire QB and his fiance Ashley Harlan. Details - JUMP!
Wes Welker and Anna Burns are still together. The two were first outed way back in January of 2010 & relationship updates could be literally counted on one hand. So imagine our glee this morning when we saw Dickie V. with the couple at this weekend's Miss Hooters International pageant. Burns has a non-existent online profile and Welker hasn't updated his Twitter account since May 28. We actually beat the Boston Globe to a gossip piece! New photos of Anna - JUMP!
Late last night the one and only Ines Sainz, we suppose, nearly gave Rex Ryan a heart attack after posting this photo of her feet with this message. "Que se traen con mis zapatos? Saben lo dif q es autosacarse una foto de ls pies? Va P el q la pidio!" Remembering back to our foggy high school Spanish, that says something like, "What do you get out of my feet? It's difficult to take photo of my feet. This is for you pervert Rex Ryan!" Or something like that. Anyway, full photos - JUMP!
BC associate editor Monty sent us this dispatch: I was pretty sure there couldn't be anything funny about a middle-aged dude trying to have sex with a minor, but then I watched this video of now-former Tampa Bay Buccaneers' luxury seat manager Brian C. Weiss, who was arrested Sunday. The 38-year-old Weiss traveled to Clermont, Fla. with the intention of meeting a 14-year-old girl's guardian, who would then allow Weiss to have sex with the girl. Screencaps! JUMP!
If you said Kim Kardashian, you've just won a fabulous washer/dryer set! Actually, no. We're not giving you anything, but former USC and probably soon-to-be former New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush is dating a woman who looks exactly like his ex, Kim Kardashian. How much does she look like The Giant Ass? They could be sisters. A closer examination - PHOTO Gallery! JUMP!
Normally we won't get into a race bait story but gotta step into the ring on the story of New Mexico football player DeShon Marman being arrested last week for not pulling up his pants while boarding a U.S. Airways flight from San Francisco to Albuquerque. Video of Marman's semi-confrontation with a U.S. Airways pilot is making its rounds but the big news today is a woman snapping a pick of a old white dude crossdresser who was allowed to board a plane in THIS! JUMP!
BC writer Monty tonight sent us this dispatch: Earlier today, some idiot who will remain nameless did a story "exposing" Auburn and their practice of using paid hosts and hostesses to take care of recruits while they're on campus. The hostesses, known as Tigerettes, and hosts, known as Tiger Hosts, are students who do indeed get paid for doing actual work. Kind of like when they paid me to mop the racquetball courts when I was in college.
Now think about this for a second, some sculpture artist named Franco Castelluccio has been working on a Tim Tebow piece that he hopes will bring $12,000. Don't misunderstand us, art is wonderful. The BC office has a couple of beautiful pieces we've picked up on trips to Santa Fe. We also understand that there is this thing called exploitation. How dare Franc play on the emotions of the hundreds of thousands of Tebow worshipers. Don't do it, people. It's just Timmy breaking a tackle. JUMP!
Our buddy Brandon over at BroBible, who considers himself a big fisherman, begins his day by checking Busted Coverage so let's give him something this Monday morning to wrap his head around. Of course Brandon doesn't care that Jacksonville Jaguars draft pick Blaine Gabbert is about to choke on his fly fishing pole. LOOK at that Rainbow! Nice one, eh Wenard? First thing ladies see is Blaine's runway good looks. First thing a fisherman zones in on is that fatty. Full shot after the JUMP!
Hayden Panettiere likes athletes, that we know. After breaking up with heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko, Panettiere has moved on with former University of Colorado and current New York Jets receiver Scotty McKnight, a seventh-round pick in this year's draft. Is Hayden out of her mind? This loser will be lucky to make the practice squad! Photos! JUMP!
You might remember yesterday when we helped make Jordan Jefferson famous this week for his answer to "Which Jefferson Is This?" pop quiz on ESPN. Of course he flubbed the answer to a picture of Thomas Jefferson by calling him George - on live national TV. Well, we can now report that Jordan exacted revenge on ESPN HQ by taking this photo and maybe getting in an ass grab on pageviews. You be the judge. Hand on the ass? Full photo - JUMP!
We're about 6 weeks out from the start of NFL training camps and still don't have a labor deal. At this point we're running out of lockout stories and stupid updates on Tim Tebow so let's mix it up today. Burnt Toast Editor Peter Burns suggested we spend some time chatting on Twitter with former porn star Ashlynn Brooke about the Packers and football in general. Great idea! Take the time today to fire off a question to this Oklahoma Sooners & Green Bay fan. A chick talking football to you should ease the pain of this stupid lockout.
PR guy Brad emailed us this week with this message. "I hope you are well! I just wanted to let you know that six Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders will be featured on Friday night’s episode of The Singing Bee, CMT’s highest rated original series. The cheerleaders will compete in this karaoke-style game show to win $10,000 for their chosen charity." Who cares about the charity? Cheerleaders playing Mad Libs karaoke? We're all in. Play along at home! JUMP!
Not since closet crapper Najeh Davenport have we heard about a football player (allegedly) doing anything this crazy. Atlanta Falcons cornerback Christopher Owens, a 2009 draft pick from San Jose State, is being investigated for trashing his ex-girlfriend and baby mama's apartment. Of course she ran off to TMZ bitching and complaining. Sounds fishy to us. Jaded baby mama? Full details of the trashing - JUMP!
So the NFL is plenty mad over a Chicago TV station's investigation into the use of players wearing league uniforms while advertising Exxxotica Expo 2011, which as you can guess involved porn stars. This is the same league that won't let bars advertise "Watch the Super Bowl here!" This is the same league that will destroy companies over copyright issues. Well, look what we found. How about the NFL logo itself splattered on a "Lockout Party" ad from this past weekend. And there's more! JUMP!
You know what gets an NFL GM excited? A wide receiver who can leap over his 6-foot-2 mother and still have clearance to make the landing. That guy holding the photo of former Georgia WR Kris Durham skying over his mom is Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider, who's in charge of building a team that can go 9-7 and make the playoffs. Schneider had an interesting draft strategy this year. He took a guy who never visited the team, but did send them the photo you see above. Full shot - JUMP!
By now it's clear Colts' owner Jim Irsay is the most engaged NFL exec using Twitter. The guy is well-known for his contests that have even gone as far as sending followers to the Super Bowl. But how cool would it be for an NFL owner to send you a case of beer, a signed letter containing a $100 bill & that sweet Colts visor cap? Yes, Jim Irsay sent one follower a case of PBR this week. That's the coolest hipster NFL move we've ever heard of. Photos - JUMP!
Stop for a second and think of all the out-of-shape, overweight, pork bellied 60-year-olds you know. Then segue to these two photos of NFL referee Ed Hochuli this week being stalked at his gym by San Diego radio reporter Marty Caswell. She tweeted early in the week, "Stalking, er being aggressive, does pay off. Ed Hochuli, interview at the gym, happens tomorrow...." Um, like, of course we want to see Ed ripping a couple sets. Who's up for some tricep work? PIC - JUMP!
It's pretty rare to see a #1 NFL draft pick and franchise QB whitewater rafting, but that's exactly what Cam Newton and his Carolina Panthers teammates were up to this week in Charlotte at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Who are we to judge how the Franchise spends his off time? All we can say, as you'll see after the JUMP, is that Jimmy Clausen is riding in the front of a raft while Newton has protection from the new guy, Jeremy Shockey.
