It was brought to our attention this morning that the photographers at Sports Illustrated constructed a gigantic panoramic photo of Sunday's Super Bowl and that it was a 1,700 megapixel image. What does that all mean? It means that you can use a zoom to look around Lucas Oil Stadium and see what people were doing during the 3rd quarter. Within 20-seconds of looking around we found NY Giants Nose Picker. JUMP!
There isn't much related to the wild world of NFL cheerleading that slips by us here at BC. Whether it's the opportunity to 'rent' cheerleaders for birthday parties, bachelor parties, grandpa's wake, grandpa's nursing home, etc. - we're all over it. So upon learning that the Baltimore Ravens have been allowing fans - since 2010 - to vacation with the team's cheerleaders, Kevin the Intern was promptly fired this morning. That's his beat. We're very embarrassed. JUMP!
Of course you guys are about to kill us over that headline, but let's focus on what is considered a great Super Bowl seat for a guy with 1.6mm Twitter followers. If you are Bill Simmons, the guy who put Boston sports fandome on the map, are you happy to find your Super Bowl seat next to a Yankees fan? Are you happy to trudge through 14 people to go take a leak? Are you inconvenienced by seats not 50-yard-line? We think so. JUMP!
(Via @StevenRojas) You know what saddens us this morning from the NBA? Paul Pierce passing Larry Bird on the Celtics all-time scoring list. It must have something to do with one of these guys being nicknamed 'Legend' while the other is called the 'Truth.' Just can't be a fan of anyone called 'Truth.' As for those of you who need one more Super Bowl betting story, how about this LVRJ piece on the day after at the sportsbooks. Impressive read. Let's get rolling!
We kind of had a feeling all New York Jets fans were like this. That may or may not be the case, but we've found one woman who isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer. During the New York Giants Super Bowl victory parade today, a local reporter turned the camera on one brilliant young lady to ask who she wanted to see. Her reply? "Sanchez." We wonder how long she'll be waiting on the street for Sanchez to roll by. Check the video!
New England Patriots receiver Wes Welker's 4th quarter drop in the Super Bowl helped seal his team's fate and propel the New York Giants to a win. In typical fashion, New York sports fans have no intention of letting him forget about the gaffe either. A pawn shop stuck it to Welker by dropping 900 pounds of Butterfinger candy bars in Copley Square Tuesday morning. At least Bostonians will get some free candy to go with their misery. Check it!
Via Steve Weatherford on the ride to the Meadowlands to celebrate a New York Giants victory in New Jersey: "Only a Super Bowl MVP can rock a mullet like this one." Woah, Steve, not going to go with an overbite and schnoz tweet for good measure? Kinda disappointed in you. (@Weatherford5)
Of course we won't rest this week until we finally nail down a name to the guy - with a black eye - at Saturday's Maxim Super Bowl party who was passed out on a bench inside the Indiana State Fairgrounds building. Team Busted Coverage/Coed Magazine was about 15 minutes from leaving the superhero-themed boozefest when this guy stole our hearts. The perfect head positioning. By himself. Black eye. JUMP!
And there you have it straight from the fingers of Tim Tebow's agent, Angel Gonzalez. Who is this Angel character? He's the dude who, last summer, tweeted out the shot of Tebow's arms while swinging a golf club. Gonzalez is so inner circle that he can officially report today that Baby Jesus won't be spending his off-season perfecting the pasodoble. You can shut down the gossip engine, Good Morning America. (@Angel_XV)
'Bradying' as defined by Busted Coverage: the act of being in the seated position, shoulders at 80-degree angle with the head slouching as if a WR just dropped another catch and you can't play WR, too. Right hand in a fist while left hand acts as the Chipotle burrito shell. Feet perfectly at 90-degree angle. Forearms on thighs. And with that, America has its new rage - Bradying. JUMP!
Via: Country singer Randy Travis was arrested in Sanger Monday morning on a charge of suspicion of public intoxication. According to Sanger police, an officer noticed a 1998 black Pontiac parked in front of the First Baptist Church of Sanger early Monday morning and, thinking that was unusual, stopped to talk to the driver. Yes, Randy was drunk & police took him to the station to sober up. The big news: He was driving a '98 Pontiac. Really? That's how Randy's rolling these days?
Extra host Maria Menounos looks fantastic. As you might imagine, she looks even more fantastic in a bikini. Maybe the best thing to come out of the New York Giants winning the Super Bowl was the fact Menounos lost a bet to colleague A.J. Calloway. The die-hard New England Patriots fan had to wear a bikini on Extra to pay off the wager. We tip our hat to you, Calloway. We'll tip something else to Menounos and her rock-hard abs. JUMP!
Will Ferrell is awesome, so you know the Super Bowl commercial he did for Old Milwaukee is awesome. Unfortunately, no one saw it. That is, unless you live in the North Platte, Nebraska area. That's the only market Ferrell's commercial aired in. It's not the first time Old Milwaukee has pulled such a stunt with Ferrell, but fear not. We've got the commercial right here for you in all it's unaired glory. Check it!
Someone should probably remind this moron he didn't just win the Super Bowl. How quickly did the Patriots put Super Bowl XLVI behind them? Oh, by 11 or so last night when the Patriots post-Super Bowl party at Victory Field (3-wood from Lucas Oil) where LMFAO, Earth, Wind & Fire, Maroon 5 and Steven Tyler performed. The big news from the party? Rob Gronkowski got shirtless during the LMFAO set. JUMP!
What's the best part of a Maxim Super Bowl party? Um, the ladies followed closely by the unlimited quantities of Patrón poured by cute chick bartenders. Saturday's superhero-themed party at the Indiana State Fairgrounds might not have attracted as many big time celebrity names as Maxim had hoped, but the scene inside was just fine thanks to ladies who brought their 'A' games & an insane special set from Ludacris. Of course we took a camera into the party. JUMP!
It was supposed to be a scenario where, already stripping in Boston for the weekend, porn star Bibi Jones goes balls to the walls during the Super Bowl while her meal ticket, Rob Gronkowski, makes the Hail Mary catch to win XLVI. Jones, feeling that a Super Bowl victory party with Gronk was in the books, started tweeting NSFW shots during halftime. Then her feed went silent. Nothing. 13 hours of silence. What a bad night for Gronk, Jones & Pats Nation. JUMP!
Those rascals from The Insider, knowing a viral sensation when they record one, posted a video early this morning featuring an angry Gisele walking through Lucas Oil Stadium where she was heckled by fans. One guy even lobbed an "Eli owns your husband," volley at the Brazilian model. That led to: "My husband can not f****ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times." Watch it HERE.
What will sports historians researching Super Bowl XLVI 100 years from now takeaway from last night's game? If you're in New York, it'll be about Eli Manning holding his 2nd Lombardi. As for Boston/New England researchers, they'll find a hunched over Tom Brady after his 2nd loss to the Giants via an amazing 4th quarter of football. Our newspaper front-page winner this morning: the West Lafayette/Lafayette, Ind. Journal & Courier. JUMP!
Via: Police said it all started with an argument at a home near the intersection of U.S. 17/92 and State Road 434 in Longwood Sunday afternoon. Police said the gunman shot 25-year-old Donnie Shepard in the back, and then ran off. Police said a second man also ran out of the apartment with him. Investigators told WFTV the suspect is a black male. He is described as 300 pounds and taller than six feet. Wait? Before the game even started? Afternoon?
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!
