This isn't just a bet that there would be a safety, or defensive touchdown, in the Super Bowl. It's 1st score of the game. Pretty much throwing away $1k 100 out of 100 times, right Collinsworth? No word on how much the guy lost on XLVI, but we're guessing he walked away with enough money to tip the valet at MGM. As for Vegas books as a whole, the LVRJ reports bookies won "a ham sandwich" yesterday. In other words, it was a wash. Let's get rolling!
Everyone knows the best part of the Superbowl are the commercials. Well here are the top 5 commercials of Super Bowl 46. I'm no Darren Rovell so I have no idea it costs per second to get your Super Bowl ad up but I know it's a lot. There were a lot of good commercials that we had to leave out but here is out top 5 picks for this game. Video after the JUMP!
That is the face of a man who is too busy catching passes and taking down chicks to give a shit about your Super Bowl introduction. Just look at the guys face. For the New York Giants, it looks like Jake Ballard is high on something. On queue, we have a New York Giants fan dressed ridiculously with a crazy look on his face. The New England Patriots countered with an old dude in a sweatshirt with an old leather helmet style hat. All this and more after the JUMP!
It was the 8th annual Puppy Bowl before Superbowl 46 and thankfully there were no season ending injuries for the puppies. They had Meep the bird live tweeting the event and plenty of fake penalties for all of these cute puppies. Pigs were just outside the stands cheering them on and there were tailgating puppies just outside enjoying food. Hopefully no one peed in the water bowl this year. Check it after the JUMP!
Check out these four older women who still have passion for their New York Giants. Four of them sharing a jersey? That's dedication folks. The Superbowl 46 preview show gave us a zip line, a pregnant Jessica Simpson, and Katharine Mcphee. The New York Giants are getting ready to take on the New England Patriots in Superbowl 46 and all of the stops are being pulled out for the game. Check it after the JUMP!
Tiquan Underwood played in only six games for the New England Patriots this season, but he was proud to be a member of the team. So proud, he shaved the team logo into the back of his high-top fade. The haircut made him a media darling all week in Indianapolis. Unfortunately, his pride and loyalty got him nowhere. The Pats unceremoniously cut Underwood the night before the Super Bowl. Classy move, Bill Belichick. Here's the story. Check it!
Long after most of the TV cameras had left last night's GQ Super Bowl Kick-Off party, Erin Andrews stopped by the Stutz Business Center in downtown Indianapolis. Her good friend Brooklyn Decker happened to be at the party, too, with her husband Andy Roddick. No biggie, right? Just Erin Andrews stopping to party. Um, then EA and Decker did an impromptu interview where we learned interesting details about Pageviews' fascination with the SI swimsuit model. JUMP!
Things are looking pretty good for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, win or lose. Beyond the supermodel wife, piles of money and All-American good looks, Brady's $20 million Los Angeles palace was recently completed. We think all that is a pretty nice consolation prize if his team loses on Sunday. Oh, and we call it a palace because it has two wings. Here's a look at the Bradys' new 22,000-square-foot home. Check it!
Bucket list item: 'Breath the same air and be within an arm length of Kate Upton.' Yep, I can check that one off the must-do-in-this-life list. Done. Over. Happened yesterday at the Super Bowl radio row. First thing Kate told those of us on the FoxSports.com set was that she wasn't feeling so great. She then went on to have a stellar conversation with Fox Sports' Laura Okmin. Meanwhile, we were documenting this moment. JUMP!
Did you expect anything less from Busted Coverage and Coed from the GQ party last night here in Indianapolis? We gave the lovely Ashley Salazar (@ashleycmsalazar) a microphone, access to famous athletes/celebrities and let her go wild getting comments from men who were enamored with our sideline reporter. Was it a lack of journalistic etiquette when she got on stage to dance with LL Cool J? Like we care. GQ wanted to have a party, so we had a party. JUMP!
Of course the slob that was making his rounds at Radio Row at the JW Marriott over the last couple days was Curt Schilling. Of course he was rocking a two-day stubble. Hooded sweatshirt because they're comfortable to fat guys? Check. But the big question for us had to do with that backpack. The camo pack he was carrying around. That thing had to be 40 pounds. What's on tap in Indy today? Directv's Beach Bowl should be huge. For us: Maxim party tonight. Let's get rolling!
There's plenty of ass in Indianapolis this week for the Super Bowl. Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow doesn't care though. While the chicks are (presumably) swooning and throwing themselves at the dreamboat that is Tebow, Jesus Boy is having none of it. We've got Tebow at a Bud Light party last night, surrounded by scantily-clad women, not giving a shit. We've got him with Kate Upton and Chrissy Teigen this morning doing his wholesome schtick. Way to score one for virgins everywhere, Tim! Check it!
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has the best toilet known to man in his place. Just ask receiver Wes Welker. As the questions and stories get dumber and dumber at the Super Bowl, Welker told someone the main reason he likes visiting Brady's house is because his toilets do all the work for you. What the hell are we talking about? Drop trow and read all about it here while you're sitting on your highly-inferior throne with a wad of paper in your hand.
Hate Stevie Johnson? Hate guys who wear read jeans, a chain wallet and a backpack with stacks of money printed on it? Then you really hate Stevie Johnson's look today as he cruises Radio Row looking to chat with media outlets. Other awards we're ready to handout include: Best Athlete Head of Hair and Odd Non-Athlete Promoting A Movie. JUMP!
We've spent the last two days in Indy covering the madness on Radio Row, but it seems the time has come to get out on the streets amongst the sh*t talking Colts' fans who are wearing shirts such as this one photographed by @Mick_Coons. The main goal is to document the reaction to Kate Upton on Radio Row. Did we mention she'll be playing beach football tomorrow inside the dome constructed at the baseball field next to Lucas Oil?
The big news yesterday on Radio Row at the Super Bowl was an appearance by Tim Tebow, but there was another face schmoozing that surprised us. What were the chances Ryan Leaf would show up promoting his autobiography? Slim to none. But there he was, making the rounds trying to get on radio shows. As for the SB XLVI line, the money has now moved to the Giants. The line is back to -3 N.E. We'll be back in Indy this morning. Follow along @bustedcoverage.
This is the part of the day when we sing "On Wisconsin." We don't do it every day, but Wisconsin is looking pretty good right now. Wisconsinites J.J. Watt, who happens to play for the Houston Texans these days, and Laura Kaeppeler, who happens to be Miss America, met up in Indianapolis today. Do we see a love connection? Not really. Her heart belongs to Aaron Rodgers. We've got all the dirt right here. Check it!
Madonna will be performing at halftime of the Super Bowl on Sunday, which will probably be the highlight of the game for us. That is, unless she channels New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz. Cruz, who became known for doing the salsa after scoring a touchdown this season, is in The Material Girl's head. She told the media he influenced her to learn salsa, so if she breaks it out on Sunday, you'll know why. Here's our look at Madonna's relationship with Cruz and the halftime show. Check it!
Just got back from the Madonna presser and we can report that Bill Plaschke of the L.A. Times, being the dirty old man that he is, asked the genius question of the day at the Madonna presser. The Around the Horn vet wondered in no certain terms, 'Will there be any Janet Jackson nip slips?' Madonna, who made sure to tell everyone about her midwestern roots, said extra caution has gone into what she'll wear. In other news, she'll perform 3 old songs and 1 new. Expect to be entertained.
The differences couldn't have been more extreme. Joe Montana, owner of four Super Bowl rings, walked around radio row today without an entourage. It was just Joe and his media handler. While Montana went about his tour of the JW Marriott ballroom with the precision of an experienced pitchman, behind him was the radio row rookie, Tim Tebow, and throngs of followers trying to get close. Tebow's first tour of radio row couldn't have been any bigger of a circus created by us - the media. JUMP!
Joe Theismann is cruising around radio row today and one thing that stood out about his appearance on the Fox Sports set was that he wears two giant rings, one of which is a Super Bowl ring. The other? Didn't have enough time to ask him. If that is a wedding ring it's the greatest wedding ring in history. Maybe an NFC Championship ring? We'll spend the rest of the day tracking down an answer for you guys. It's the least we can do and get paid doing it. More shots - JUMP!
Don't know who Chrissy Teigen is? She's the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model who has invaded Super Bowl radio row today. Look, you can only talk to so many ex-jocks who want to break down the Xs & Os for the Giants and Patriots. We hear that tomorrow should include a visit by the one and only Kate Upton making her Super Bowl media week debut. Expect lots of cellphone pics showing up across Twitter. Stay tuned to @bustedcoverage for real-time updates.
Of course I wasn't going to miss the opportunity to finally meet my food photo uploading and ticket price providing Twitter hero Darren Rovell this week at the Super Bowl. @darrenrovell was the honored guest last night at a tweet up with his fans at a brew pub within the Indy city market. Doesn't sound exciting? Giants stud TE Jake Ballard stopped and stayed for about two hours. Name another party last night that included a guy playing in the actual game? JUMP!
Downtown Indy is perfect for encounters with NFL legends just wandering around. Take last night for us. Stopped at some bar called Loughmillers. Had a drink, got some food & headed for JW Marriott at about 11:45. Didn't think anything of the guy - by himsel - in front of us wearing a suit. Then, just before entering the JW, he stopped to chat with Dhani Jones. It was Kurt Warner. Of course he jumped on an elevator with BC. Just another night at SB XLVI. Let's get rolling!
The big game’s only a couple days away and with each day we get more and more pumped for what’s...
You know who's destroying the ladies on press row? 'Blue,' the Butler mascot who cruised in to take photos, roll around & even had Jaime Maggio rubbing his head. Who the hell is Jaime Maggio? This piece we did on her should remind you. She's working for USA Today. Anyway, what we've learned today is that you either need to be pimping a smoothie (Romanowski), be a former Super Bowl champion (Bettis) or be a dog to really get people excited on press row. JUMP!
Sitting outside the doors to media row here in Indianapolis is the Lucas Oil Lego stadium. Besides Larry The Cable Guy and Sean Salisbury roaming around, it's the biggest 'get' of the week. TV guys are actually shooting video of this Lego display. Some guy spent like a year creating this and landed a prime location here at the JW Marriott. You want to get access here at the Super Bowl? Drop like $10k on Legos and get building. JUMP!
You know how many strip clubs there are between Boston & New York City? Lots. You know how many have sent us photos of their girls in Eli Manning jerseys? One. That would be the geniuses at Rick's Cabaret NYC (notably Lonnie Hanover). How does a strip club differentiate itself from the competition during the Super Bowl? Um, photographs of the girls rocking the home team's jerseys gets the job done. JUMP!
New Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan has a pretty sweet yacht, at least until someone awesome like you buys it! Khan's yacht is on the block for a cool $112 million and when you see the photos of this 223-foot bad boy, you'll understand why. You've never seen a boat with so much crap in it. Some of that crap includes an elevator, a disco, a gym, a motorcycle hatch and a helicopter pad. You know, for when you're tired of traveling by sea. Check it!
About three months ago a photo started floating around the message boards of a Georgia cheerleader built like a dude. It turns out that Anna Watson is real and is probably stronger than 95% of BC readers. Her story is making its rounds this week, but many of the sites doing their thing forgot to aggregate Anna's best photos. JUMP!
It's not Inez Sainz. Now that we have that out of the way, it's your time to help BC investigators. Who was the ridiculous latina chick in the red dress at today's Super Bowl media day? We want name, bikini photo location, station, etc. Congrats to our buddy Bart Hubbuch from the NY Post for getting an ass shot. This is why his bosses sent him to the Super Bowl. Do work that men really care about. Bonus shot - JUMP!
BC reader AA sent this Super Bowl snack stadium to us last night: Please find attached a picture of our Super Bowl Snack stadium from last year. Dip bowls in the corner and the exterior was made of peanut butter and pretzel logs. This is what we love about America and football. In what other sport do you see fans creating stadium snack shrines? These people spent hours on this masterpiece only to destroy it over four quarters on a Sunday night in February. Full size pic - JUMP!
Bloggers will complain that Inez Sainz (also spelled Ines Sainz) is at today's Super Bowl XLVI media day. The mainstream media will complain (yet check her from head to toe) that Sainz is at today's media day. But, the world will be intrigued by what she's up to in about 20 minutes. We're on pins & needles as to what interviews she'll land. Let's not forget how Ms. Sainz got her fame in the U.S. - SB media days. Let's also not forget what makes her so famous - interview abilities. JUMP!
You guys have no idea the ball breaking we've gone through to get some stupid credential to be amongst the Super Bowl media starting tomorrow morning. Seriously, busting our balls. Phone calls for days. And days. Credential to Bill Belichick's presser? In our dreams. No f-ing chance. Dream on. And then we see this shot from USA Today's @RobertKlemko. Some little girl gets a front-row seat? And she has a credential? Of course this cannot stand. Let's get rolling!
While ESPN and the rest of the experts are busy breaking down the same video they were breaking down last week, Busted Coverage has been been researching the Patriots cheerleader squad. Been breaking down film. Analyzing cheerleader bikini shoot videos from July. Since the Giants are old school and don't have cheerleaders, the Patriots cheerleaders get special treatment this week. Up first: sideline reporter hopeful Lauren. JUMP!
There are choices to be made for Giants' superfans. You can either take $25,000 and invade Indy for the weekend of your life and have money left over or buy this 2010 Harley Fat Boy for over $20,000. If that price sounds high, relax. The gas tank is signed by all the big names from the 2010 team, including your hero, Eli. Harley with five miles of usage vs. four straight nights of strip clubs & watching Super Bowl live? Your call. JUMP!
