Wait? What? Gary Pinkel drinks? Listen, we used to cover Gary back in the late 1990s and if there was ever a coach we never thought would end up with a police mugshot, it would be Missouri head coach Pinkel. But, the Missouri media is all over his DUI last night. A Boone County sheriff's deputy stopped Pinkel's car on Keene Street in Columbia around 10 p.m. Wednesday for "lane and signal violations." We won't believe he was drunk until the dash-cam video.
Pittsburgh resident Bill Hart, @bhart62, last night uploaded this pic from his local grocery store where customers are constantly reminded why their franchise is great. Can't even pick up Mrs. T's Pierogies without having a Terrible Towel in your face. In other news, the dude who wrote 'Itsy Bitsy' Bikini has died. You ladies think we're all perverts today? These assholes were writing bikini tunes in the 50s. Might be time for a remix. Timbaland available? Let's get rolling!
You'd never hear an ESPN employee ripping a fellow ESPNer on an ESPN property - ever. So guess what happened this week when Aaron Rodgers sat down for his radio show on 540 ESPN AM in Milwaukee? Rodgers opened up on his feelings towards a certain First Take blowhard (Skip Bayless) who entertains the unemployed & second-shifters. Rodgers won't even say his name. Won't even give him the satisfaction. Won't even go on First Take like Spice Bosh. JUMP!
Houston Texans TE James Casey stopped at the Stafford, Texas Hooters last night for his radio spot on 610 AM. Upon pulling up, James noticed the billboard had a special message to Matt Leinart and the non-believers. "Hey Leinart, we believe." So simple and effective. In case you didn't hear, Leinart is being given the keys to the AFC South leading Texans due to a possible season-ending injury to Matt Schaub. Relax, Houston. Hooters knows their boy fairly well.
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: I'll be honest, never thought much of linebacker Bill Romanowski during his playing career. Dick would be a good way to summarize our feelings for him. That doesn't mean we don't like his refurbished Tudor home built in 1921. Even though Romo didn't bother to put in air conditioning (really?) the rest of it is pretty sweet. We've got the details and the photos. It can be yours for just $2.5 million. Check it!
Via SignOnSanDiego: The man, believed to be about 60, walked into the U.S. Bank on Balboa Avenue near Genesee Avenue about 9:30 a.m. and walked up to a teller. He lifted his shirt to show a pistol tucked into his waistband, put one hand on the gun and demanded money, the FBI said. The teller handed the robber some cash and he left. Witnesses saw him get into a gray, late-model Mercury. Is this your grandpa? We'll turn him in: email@example.com
Kudos to Holly Davis for having her head on swivel and finding the now infamous Roll Tide Truck parked at the local gas station getting a fill up. You might remember this video where the RTT owner showed off the amusement park on the back of that ride. Best fan truck in all of college sports. Not even a competition. In other news this morning, Jon Stewart went off on Jerry Sandusky last night. The conclusion: Jer is a horrible liar. Let's get rolling!
There are times when we suspect Reggie Bush's Twitter account was hacked. An hour ago would be one of those times. Reggie writes: "I don't know what it is about seeing a chick riding a motorcycle really does it for me! Lol! Shout out to all the chicks who ride bikes." Just randomly throws that out there. Our cohorts at Coed Magazine have Reggie covered with 121 Babes On Bikes, but those bikes would be bicycles. Something tells us Reg will still be fascinated.
It's been about a year when we first became acquainted with the MILF-y pornstar named Diamond Foxxx. Two things caught our eye. First, our office spent the better part of a week trying to figure out a total price on the plastic surgery Diamond has gone through. And the other 'thing' was her rabid fanaticism towards the Steelers. She ran this BJ contest and the rest was history. Well, she's back & LaMarr Woodley's sack total is very important. JUMP!
Yet another awesome MNF game for all you diehards who just can't get enough pigskin. Nothing like watching the Packers wiping their asses with the Vikings defense. 45-7. 10 Packers caught passes in the blowout. Rodgers now has 28 TDs and 3 INTs. In other news, Stephen Colbert last night warned parents of the growing vodka tamponing epidemic. If your son seems to be buying tampons at an alarming rate, you now know why. Let's get rolling!
BC Afternoon Editor Monty reports: Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich & Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson are America's 'it' couple right now. People just can't get enough of their story, so why not capitalize on it by throwing some cash at the situation? Introducing the David Nelson-Kelsi Reich prop bets. Some of them don't make much sense, but that probably won't stop you idiots from betting. Oh, and of course we have plenty of photos of Reich. Check it!
BC Afternoon Editor Monty reports: The wedding is off! At least temporarily. Tiki Barber is going to have to push back his wedding to Traci Lynn Johnson because a divorce from his wife Ginny isn't going to finalized any time soon. The Barbers are arguing over -- you guessed it -- money. Things just aren't going well for Tiki these days. Of course, he still has Johnson and we've got photos of her next to naked. Check it!
What were the chances Jermichael Finley would be getting a pre-MNF pedicure this afternoon and his pedi professional would be wearing a Packers shirt? High. Remember, this is Green Bay where even the Asians know how to present themselves on gameday. "Getting a nice pedi before this game tonight..
#YOTT2," Finley wrote this afternoon. Thanks for that J Fin. Now, more importantly, how did 'Tamako' end up scraping toes in Green Bay? That interests us.
The numbers don't lie with Jay Cutler. Fox can give us all the stats they'd like about how the Bears are winning thanks to Mike Martz focusing on the running game. BC investigators have a better theory as to why the Bears have gone 4-1 since early October. It was announced on Oct. 4 that Cutler was back to giving the moody meat to ex-fiancée Kristin Cavallari. Since then, this guy is on fire. This begs the question: Is Cavallari saving the Bears season? JUMP!
Who would've guessed that Jerry Sandusky would become something of an eBay auction hero over the weekend? Several of his Touched books - autographed by the alleged child molester - were auctioned off for more than $100 after starting last week worth about $8. But the grand daddy of all Sandusky memorabilia is the leather edition of Touched. We're not sure how many were published but from the price paid on Saturday, it seems $510 is the new value. JUMP!
“Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, s--- my d---,” Bill Belichick is quoted as saying after the Patriots pasted the Jets last night in New Jersey. While Bill was trumping anything that has ever come out of Rex Ryan's mouth, Twitter was exploding with racial hate towards Mark Sanchez for his 2 INT game, one of which was a pick six. We missed it, but it seems Sanchez went with a Mexican mouthpiece. That sent the Twits over the edge. JUMP!
Just look at Ed chewing on his knuckle two minutes after Deion Branch openly mocked his J-E-T-S chant right there on the MetLife turf. (Hurry, that video will be yanked by the NFL.com monkeys when they get to the NYC office.) In other NFL news, the Lions are blaming Stafford's 4 INT day in Chicago on the wind. Dude attempted 63 passes in the blowout loss. And in Tebow news, could Baby Jesus help Denver win the AFC West? The Broncos are 4-5. A game out. Let's get rolling!
Good for you, Penn State. You held one helluva vigil last night & sang a rousing version of Lennon's Imagine. Now, this morning you'll start drinking Natty & acting like the fools you are. Don't let us down. Make sure one of you gets an 'Eat Shit Sandusky' shirt onto ESPN or the major media outlet of your choice. At least six advertisers are said to have dropped ads on today's ESPN broadcast. Shed a tear, Cars.com doesn't want to be affiliated Jer chat. Let's get rolling!
Hell, he's got nothing else to do, so Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry hung out at Carolina Panthers practice today. While he was there he threw footballs at the goal post with Cam Newton & Co., which, it turns out, is a game players play in their free time. We didn't see Newton come through, but Curry did... and then he posed for the camera. Here's the video. Check it!
There has been chatter about former Penn State linebacker Dan Connor and a 2005 incident where he was suspended three games for what were considered vulgar prank phone calls over a couple months to a former PSU assistant coach. Initial reports said the former assistant did not want his name used, but reporters eventually found out his initials were J.S. Of course us conspiracy theorists thought Jerry Sandusky. Nope, Joe Sarra. Connor sent these tweets today. JUMP!
Everyone's favorite Lingerie Football League color analyst, Sean Salibury, has been keeping his finger on the pulse of all things Jerry Sandusky and is about to blow a gasket. The ex-ESPN horndog is now over at Total College Sports where he's free to speak his mind. The problem is that only 2,200 Twitter followers are getting his message. Anyway, Sean has strong words for what should happen to Pedobear. Karma is a bitch. Let some sort of justice be served...JUMP!
Back in August we told you about holy roller Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich and her relationship with Buffalo Bills WR David Nelson. The story had a day or two run and flamed out. Well, guess who's playing in the D this Sunday? Yep, Nelson and the Bills. Anyway, Jimmy Traina posted about the couple, Yahoo ran a piece and just fired it onto its front page. The reaction has been ugly. See, Johnson isn't lily white. And we have a commenting revolution. JUMP!
You thought a gigantic pedophile sex scandal in State College would freak people out to the point they'd stop getting laid for a weekend? NO FRIGGIN' WAY! Craigslist is fired up for Penn State vs. Nebraska. Three-ways, random pre-game BJs, guys looking for weekend beef, etc. Fans are looking to relieve some stress and Craigslist State College is your Yellow Pages. Personally, we'd like to offer some advice. If the dude on the other side of the email sends you this photo, RUN! JUMP!
Half-naked women and politics, now that's something we can get behind! Well, so long as those half-naked women are hot. Unfortunately, this might as close as we get. Kelli Gillispie, a city councilwoman in a Minneapolis suburb, is also a center for the Minnesota Valkyrie, the local Lingerie Football Team. Once again, we go above and beyond to introduce you to women who are making their dreams come true in the LFL. JUMP!
As mentioned earlier this morning, there was actual football played last night. For those of you who don't have the NFL Network, let's just say you didn't miss too much. The Raiders went into Jack Murphy and left with first place in the AFC West via a 24-17 victory. And, of course, Twitter exploded with hatred aimed at Phillip Rivers who now has 13 TD passes and 15 INTs. He only has one game this season without an INT - against Miami. Fans are restless & so NSFW! JUMP!
As expected, fists were flying last night at Jack Murphy during the Raiders-Chargers game that usually turns into a MMA cage match. It didn't help that the Raiders won, 24-17. For us Cincinnati Bengals fans this couldn't have gone any better. A wild card out of the West is pretty much history and the Raiders are one step closer to giving the Bungwads another 1st round draft pick. Just have to make the playoffs, baby! In other news, McQueary won't be coaching Sat. Let's get rolling.
New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker is a short dude, but he's a short dude with a lot of receiving yards and a hot girlfriend. So what does a short dude do when he throws a party? He hires a couple dudes to make him look tall. What the hell are we talking about? Take a look for yourself. This odd looking photo will all make sense in a moment. Check it!
When will we stop with the Jerry Sandusky Pedo-Scandal stories? When they stop rolling in. We've gone snooping in the Pedo's AP files & can barely believe the '99 farewell story written as Jer was preparing for his final game at Penn State. Sandusky had already been named as a child predator after a 1998 incident that many believe led to his abrupt retirement plans during the summer of '99 at just 55-years-old. Just read this. Read it and then remember what happened in '02. JUMP!
Want to jump into the brain of a mastermind child predator? Jerry Sandusky gave it to you in a 2001 book that was supposed to be Jer's memoir into a life of helping children and coaching football. Instead, upon further investigating of the pages of this book, it seems like a timeline to Jerry's life of preying on children. His stories, of what has been scanned by Google, don't deal with girls. All boys. He paints the picture and it's clearly not pretty. Screencaps - JUMP!
Ashton Kutcher got himself into the news last night thanks to the Joe Paterno firing. This tweet set off a sh$%storm as America went into mob mode on @aplusk: "How do you fire JoPa?
#insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste." That was followed by an eruption from the mob and resulted in Kutcher deleting the post. Which then resulted in an "I'm sorry" tweet to smooth over his ass since he's a backer of childrens' rights group. NSFW tweets - JUMP!
Loudmouth radio guy and Pittsburgh media maven Mark Madden was on WEEI in Boston this morning and dropped an enormous rumor bomb concerning the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Madden told the Dennis & Callahan show that two prominent national columnists are investigating whether The Diddler was pimping out Second Mile kids to rich donors. We don't know if those were Second Mile or Penn State donors. Listen to the show - here. 7:00 mark.
And so it went down last night on the State College campus. Penn State has erupted into chaos as students went nuts in the streets. The Penn State Board of Trustees held a meeting late last night and announced they had fired Joe Paterno - via telephone call. Of course Saturday was to be Paterno's final home game after 62 years at Penn State. Won't happen. He's history and of course the morons at Penn State wanted one final goodbye. Let's get rolling today!
Ok, so here we are this afternoon with not much changed in the Pedo Sandusky story. Pedo-Enabler Paterno is still your coach and students are prepping for a five-day bender. The biggest news since lunch is that a downtown State College mural has been edited. No more Jerry Sandusky. We also became aware of the Sandusky coaching defense image thanks to Jeff in Philly. Just look at Jer coaching that defensive technique. You think he ever had sex with his wife? No -800.
Saturday in State College might be one of the most insane spectacles in sports history. Nebraska comes to town. It's Senior Day. It's going to be Paterno's final home game as coach. And now comes word that former players are planning a "We Support Joe & PSU" rally on the sidelines. Seriously. Rich Mauti wants former players to "show a sign of some solidarity in support of the program and all of things Paterno has done for it." They just don't get it, do they?
And the Joe Paterno story gets weirder. Students have started their very own Occupy Paterno's Front Lawn movement tonight and the national TV cameras are ripe for any news to propel this story forward. We suggest you follow Newsday reporter Jim Baumbach who's tweeting many photos from the scene. It's hectic, filled with GameDay signs and students who obviously don't understand the severity of child rape. The photos are rolling in by the minute. JUMP!
This Joe Paterno story gets stranger by the minute. Now we meet Joe's loser son, Scott, who seems to be a coattail rider who had a law career but now seems to be a 'blogger' and commentator on all things PSU. He's a kook. Anyway, he's telling the national media that Joe will hold his own press conference today and won't step down without a fight with the university. Yes, this is how it's all going to end in State College. Disgrace. Let this be a lesson, folks. (@ScottPaterno)
