Walmart Takes Super Bowl Pepsi Displays To Next Level [Morning Twitpic]

Yes, we continue to be intrigued by soft drink/beer displays. Why? Because this will be the next great competition on the Food Network. Contestants will be given 2 hours to build kick ass beer displays. It's coming. Baby Jesus won't be playing at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Instead, you'll get a Tony Romo-Tiger Woods pairing. And how about this lede from the Free Press: Miguel Cabrera said he was moving back to third base to make room for Prince Fielder. Let's get rolling!

Jerry Glanville Getting Accupuncture At Senior Bowl Practice [PHOTOS]

Look closely. Those are tiny needles in Jerry Glanville's arm today at Senior Bowl practice in Mobile. What is the former NFL coach doing watching potential NFL draft picks? He works for the United Football League and needs to be ready to pick up the scraps in late April. Why is he having needles stuck into his arm at a football stadium? Because he knows it'll get him exposure? Missed his treatment this morning? JUMP!

The 2012 NFL Pro Bowl Cheerleaders Invade Hawaii [PHOTOS]

NFL cheerleaders make somewhere between $50-$75 per game. No pay for practice. So, as you can imagine, a paid trip to Hawaii for the 2012 Pro Bowl is a decent reward for a cheerleaders hard work. What's a week in Hawaii cost these days? $6,000? Airfare alone from Baltimore runs around $1,000. And just think, these ladies get to jersey chase this week with the possibility of landing an NFL meal ticket. Total score for these chicks. JUMP!

God Hates Fags Crew Plans Paterno Memorial Service Protest

And here we were all set for the Westboro Church, God Hates Fags, crew to unveil their signs at Joe Paterno's funeral today. The Internet will have to wait, according to Fred Phelps Jr. "Everybody waiting for WBC. Think Thursday. Think public memorial service." Hmm, strange choice, but it seems the GHFers are going for the bigger audience over Paterno's actual funeral. Big question at our office is if they'll have a special, limited edition Jerry Sandusky sign. Stay tuned.

#Tebowing Now Part Of High School Basketball Rush The Court Celebrations

We're told by @JJMandros that this is from last night's Desert Mountain vs. Chaparral (Arizona) basketball game where DM beat its rival and rush the court for an impromptu #Tebowing. First rush the court #Tebowing in high school basketball history? Seems to be unless one of you sends in proof of another: mail@bustedcoverage.com. And here we figured the craze would die out when Baby Jesus went back to building hospitals in the Phillippines. Nope.

Syracuse QB Arrested For Stealing $44 Bottle Of Breakline From Hollister [Cuff ‘Em]

Via: Syracuse University backup quarterback Terrel Hunt was taken into custody Tuesday after police say he stole an item from the Hollister store at Carousel Mall. Police say Hunt took a $44 bottle of Breakline fragrance from the store, concealing it in a shopping bag before exiting. Seems like a logical reason to risk your scholarship. What this tells us is that the booster program at Syracuse really sucks. Can't call a booster for a $44 fragrance? Enjoy your 6-6 seasons, boys.

Internet’s Very First Tebowing Snow Sculpture [Morning Twitpic]

They're even using Tebowing snow sculptures on the slopes to get some damn snow. Smart move, but does Mother Nature really care about some option-read QB from the Broncos? If you care & are a degenerate: the Pro Bowl OVER/UNDER is up to 73. In Prince Fielder news, SI's Andy Gray unearthed this gem of the Tigers new $200mm man as a chubby kid throwing the ball with Alan Trammell. Dude will make $65,000 every single day for next 9 years. Let's get rolling!

NBC10’s LuAnn Cahn Live Twitpics Joe Paterno’s Viewing [PHOTO]

Is it distasteful for someone to take a photo of the Joe Paterno casket today before the viewing took place at the Penn State campus spiritual center? One last collector's photo? Well, NBC10 Philly reporter LuAnn Cahn did her best to live tweet today's viewing. Is this sad? Cahn just doing her job? Seems pretty tacky to us, but who are we to tell LuAnn Cahn what dead person viewing she can tweet about. JUMP!

Joe Paterno Memorial Service Tickets On eBay Hit $99,000; Yanked

Would an eBay member (mollyswimmom) with top-rated seller status post fraudulent Joe Paterno memorial service tickets on the auction site? Nope. Would jokers highjack the auction to the point where it would need to be yanked by eBay? Yes. We know tickets to Thursday's public service at the Bryce Jordan Center are in huge demand. $100k for two, demand? Doubtful. Jump!

Some douche named @PaulJacob19 sent this shot - first to TMZ - to damn near everyone he could think of on Twitter late last week.

Terrell Suggs Calls Skip Bayless A Douchebag [Video]

If people didn't know it before -- and let's face it, they should -- they know it now. ESPN personality Skip Bayless is a douchebag. Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs told America just that, live on ESPN's First Take today. While Bayless was doing his usual loud-talking, I'm-never-wrong act and needling Suggs about his team's loss to the New England Patriots, Suggs told Bayless not to be a douchebag. Here's the video.

50 Cent Wins $500,000 On Giants, Brags On Twitter [Photos]

Rapper and Queens native 50 Cent is rolling in it today. And by it, we mean $500,000. No he didn't make a new sub-par rap album (at least that we're aware of) or star in another crappy movie where he pretty much plays himself. No, 50 threw down a wager on the New York Giants in the NFC Championship game and came out on the winning end. Of course, he did the logical, classy thing by bragging about it on Twitter afterward.

Imagine Ravens' fan sitting at work today playing that final drive over in his head 25-30 times. All Lee Evans has to do is hold the ball.

Billy Cundiff’s Hand Conducts Post-Game Interview [Morning Twitpic]

Yes, we're late. Still out here in Vegas soaking in AFC/NFC Championship weekend. Sat at Red Rock Casino as Billy shanked that game-tying field goal. The sportsbook, standing-room only, went berserk as Patriots moneyline guy cashed his winner. We had the Pats -7 (loser), Giants +2, the Giants-49ers OVER (loser) & Giants to score first (loser). Thankfully enough money was on the Giants to break even but enjoy one helluva day at the sportsbook. Let's get rolling!

Tom Brady Talking Sh*t To Ray Lewis’ Face [VIDEO]

Do you know what I wouldn't do if I were a quarterback in the AFC Championship? Talk shit to Ray Lewis' face.

Well that is exactly what Tom Brady did after he picked up a first down when the New England Patriots took on the Baltimore Ravens.  Video after the JUMP!

Steven Tyler Botched National Anthem At AFC Championship Game [PHOTOS]

Do you know who you shouldn't pick to sing the National Anthem? Steven Tyler in a terrible Patriots sequin shirt. I'm surprised the Foxboro crowd didn't boo him out of the stadium. Joe Flacco had the worst facial hair possible in the AFC Championship between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. Flacco also looked like he was going to pass out in the pre-game huddle. Check it out after the JUMP!

Krogers In Friendswood, Texas Joins Super Bowl Beer Display War! [PHOTOS]

We ask beer display artists to send us Super Bowl displays & the floodgates open. Got a message from Russell last night: "Krogers in Friendswood Texas. NFL and Bud Light (TOUCHDOWN)." True, this Krogers doesn't have an ATV parked at their Bud display, but they went with the old classic, "Your ass is going to get shitfaced by just staring at our display," angle.

Greatest Baltimore Ravens Logo Haircut You’ll See All Day [Morning Twitpic]

Kevin the Intern's first experience on the Las Vegas Strip included a porn club promoter - at about 2 a.m. PST - asking KTI if he wanted "titties in his face." Good start to the trip. Relax ladies, KTI isn't swooned that easy. He wanted to grab a early bird 3 egg breakfast instead. As for what's happening in the sports books this weekend, the line is still -7 Pats & 49ers - 2.5. Matt the Screencapper is with you this afternoon. Enjoy! (via @faaamos)

Spec’s Liquor Store Super Bowl Display Is Man’s Dream Come True [PHOTOS]

Each year around the Super Bowl we start posting great beer displays from across this great nation. One beer display artist, Richard, wrote to us today with his 2012 piece of artistry. "Check it out we built this in a Spec's Liquor Store in Galveston, TX," he bragged. And he should be bragging. That's not a golf cart. That's like a mini-Jeep SUV with a LCD in the bed, sitting on Bud Light cases. The race is on, beer display artists.JUMP!

The fine folks at Realtor.com have been updating some of the athlete houses that are on the market, or STILL on the market and besides Joe Montana's $35,000,000 pad, Jake Plummer's place sticks out.

Those of you who've been with BC over the years might remember our fascination with Philadelphia Eagles WAG Julie Dorenbos.

Tim Tebow Just Hanging Out In Las Vegas [PHOTOS]

The most wholesome guy on the entire planet, Tim Tebow, was in one of the most depraved places on earth yesterday. Baby Jesus was in Sin City, where he did... probably exactly what you think he would have done. In other words, the complete opposite of what we would have done. Here are the details of Tebow's Vegas jaunt and a little food for thought for Churchy. Check it!

Back in 2009, Joe Montana made big news when he put his 500-acre Northern California spread on the housing market with an asking price of $49,000,000. Unique price, eh? Flash-forward to 2012 and Montana is still trying to sell that house. New price: $35,000,000. What changed with the house in three years to drop the price $14mm? Gophers? Bad olive crop?

Our friends at Friends of the Program have published the full name of the Alabama fan they believe is behind the LSU fan teabagging. His name, allegedly, is Brian Downing, and that comes from good authority. There are also more photos of the alleged teabagger that pretty much put the puzzle pieces together.

New Orleans Cops Hunting For Alabama Fan Who Teabagged LSU Fan

We've kinda stayed away from the story of Bama fan dropping his nuts on passed out LSU fan at the BCS Championship festivities because both sets of fans already seem to hate us and we like to visit SEC country without getting our asses whipped. But now the story has become a crime scene. The New Orleans Police Department is hunting themselves a Bama sexual predator and has this poster circulating to help bring justice to the Krystal's teabagging. JUMP!

So Dez Bryant Beefing With Weezy At Club LIV In Miami Over The Weekend

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is a dumb thug, this we know. He got suspended at Oklahoma State and he's been dealing with unpaid loans since he's been in the pros. He's supposedly got plenty of talent, though. Too bad he didn't show it in 2011, a season where he caught 63 balls for 928 yards -- not bad, but certainly not as advertised. So what is Bryant doing this offseason? Fightin' Weezy in the club. Seriously. JUMP!

Tebow Injured So Bad In Patriots Loss He Could Barely Smile For Patriots Fan

The big NFL news being floated today by ESPN and gobbled up by the Denver Post and the rest of the gobblers is that Baby Jesus played most of the 2nd half in Foxboro in severe pain. Chest bruises and torn rib cartilage. But Tim Tebow can't possibly be sidelined by such minor injuries. Oh, but he wouldn't have played this week if Denver beat the Patriots, says the Post. Things were so bad for BJ that he somehow muscled out a smile for goofy Pats kid. JUMP!

Dre Kirkpatrick Arrested For Pot Possession; Under Armour Rep Arrested, Too!

As the Alabama fans on Twitter like to say, Dre Kirkpatrick is a 'former BAMA player & student.' Way back like nine days ago he was a current BAMA football player whom ESPN has rated 8th overall on their 'Big Board.' Well, he was picked up in Florida this morning for pot possession. No biggie. The usual 20 grams of weed. But who was with him and also arrested for pot possession? Some dude who used to play for BAMA and now works for Under Armour. JUMP!
