As you'd expect, Super Bowl tickets are pretty expensive, despite a matchup no one not on the east coast gives two craps about. The average price to see the New York Giants play the New England Patriots is upwards of $4,000 on tickets that have a face value of $800 to $1,200. Oh, and if you want a suite, well... you better have money to burn. Suites are going for more than $500,000. We've got all the idiotic numbers for you here. Check it.
Is there a chick on this planet that can possibly resist the urge of The Gronkowski? The spike. The chiseled jaw line. The 2% body fat. The abs. The gun shows. The NFL tight end records. The Ivan Drago hair. In a matter of five months, Rob Gronkowski has gone from an unknown, to a chick's dream come true. We've searched out these ladies and their Internet shrapnel. These photos represent trophy deer moments to these ladies. JUMP!
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. Listen, at this point, someone send us a shot of Gronk with chicks and NOT grizzed up. Just look at this machine pitching a tent at some red cup pool party. As for BC today, we took the red eye out of Vegas and are now back to the HQ. As for big names we rubbed elbows with over the weekend, Shane Victorino & Nina Hartley. Let's get rolling!
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.
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. Check it!
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. All Billy Cundiff needs to do is hit the chip shot to send the game to overtime. Over and over in his head. But you guys need something to get over the pain. Something to change your focus. Something to forget Billy Cundiff's insane miss. We have the perfect remedy. New Kate Upton Beach Bunny bikini photos. Gentlemen, you need this. JUMP!

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!
Jay Glazer explained to us how the New York Giants handwarmer bags were filled with Shamwows to keep their hands warm in these cold conditions against the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC Championship. The NFC showed up the AFC today where they brought Kristin Chenoweth who killed the National Anthem. Vernon Davis also got on top of the camera stand for a celebration. JUMP!
Do you know what I wouldn't do if I were a quarterback in the AFC Championship? Talk shit to Ray Lewis' face. The guy allegedly stabbed a guy in a club and is known as being one of the most ferocious players in the game. 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!
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!
Joe Paterno's life came to an end this morning at a State College hospital after his brief fight with lung cancer came to an end. His son, Jay, tweeted, A special thanks to the Hospital staff. They helped us all through the past few days. Can not begin to express our gratitude. Our family thanks Penn Staters, students & all people for prayers & support for my Dad. He felt your support in his fight. Of course Penn State is responding to the news with sadness and reflection. JUMP!
Vernon Davis is already planning his victory party directly after the NFC Championship Game. Sounds pretty cocky to me but I didn't catch the game winning pass in my last game against the New Orleans Saints. The San Francisco 49ers host the New York Giants this Sunday. Will this be shittiest party ever or one that sends them to the Superbowl? Check out the invite instructions and the full picture after the JUMP!
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. Are you a beer display artist or have you seen a great SB display? email@example.com
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)
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. The Snake has been trying to unload this dump since 2009 and has dropped the price by $1.6mm since. Nope, no luck. Not even Baby Jesus is splurging on this place with the comma-shaped pool. Take a peak & buy it. JUMP!
You know where all the best hoes and Jersey Chasers will be partying during the Super Bowl? This ridiculous Rolling Stone party that is said to be the costliest Super Bowl party in the history of the Super Bowl party scene. What do you get for $1,000? Alcohol, music and no guarantee that one of those high-priced hoes will give you a reach around. Have a stack of cash won from the Patriots-Broncos gimme? Drop the $1k and tell us all about it. The band list - check it!
Those of you who've been with BC over the years might remember our fascination with Philadelphia Eagles WAG Julie Dorenbos. Her husband, Jon, is the Philly long snapper and has been in the league since 2003. There isn't another NFL city where the wife of the long snapper is the dominant WAG. Julie been in the spray tan business for a few months, but kicked things up a notch this week by getting body painted. Um, other WAGs better take notice. JUMP!
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? Windstorm took out trees? None of those, from what we can tell. JUMP!
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. We also know that Brian used to work at a sporting goods store. Was he an Alabama student? Yep. JUMP!
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!
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!
It's the tweet that sent bloggers & Twitter dorks into a frenzy 20 minutes ago. Rob Lowe, off the radar to most sports junkies, is now reporting that Peyton Manning's NFL career is over. How does he know such news? He has f*cking sources, baby! Lowe went on to tweet Rich Eisen asking him what he's hearing. Lowe then told his followers he hopes his sources are wrong. Can we all just say a little prayer that Lowe is right and scooped Schefter & Mort? Please. (via @RobLowe)
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!
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!
Benicia (CA) Police Log for Saturday, January 14, 5:16 p.m. PST: Dispatch received a call of a woman screaming inside an apartment on Buchanan Street. It turns out she was cheering for a football game, more than likely the crazy finish to the San Francisco 49ers playoff game. Let's think about this for a minute: California, just after 5 p.m. EST, football game, 40 miles from Candlestick Park. Yeah, we'll go with the 49ers game. This one seems to add up. She wasn't being beaten.
The Juice is loose! Or at least his Florida home is. Wife killer, kidnapper and former Buffalo Bills running back O.J. Simpson is in foreclosure. The bank decided to take away Simpson's Miami home, which he won't be needing anytime soon anyway, because he owes them more than $700,000. It's really too bad when such a swell guy happens upon misfortune. Although maybe he could repay the bank in cigarettes. Here are the details. Check it!
The new thing to do, if you work for an airline, is to taunt the losing playoff football team's fans when they happen to be in your city. It started in Denver, when some folks who work for United decided to stick it in the craw of Pittsburgh Steelers fans by posting a message on the big board at the gate about Tim Tebow. They followed suit over the weekend in San Francisco, when some 9ers fans who work for Virgin decided to stick it to Saints fans with a Jay-Z reference. JUMP!
We're still getting submissions for our 2012 Alabama BCS Trophy Tour gallery, but figured you guys would appreciate a select few to wet your appetite. We've tried to bust through the Dr. Pepper photo gallery site to no avail so if you come across the secret sauce, pass it along. As for the fans, we've yet to see the real superfans with the face paint, shirts off, etc. This is still pure Alabama, though. Good work, Bammers. JUMP!
Billionaire Donald Trump is a fan of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Or at least he's a fan of breast cancer research. The Celebrity Apprentice host dropped a lot of dough at charity auction for breast cancer research on a signed Tim Tebow helmet and jersey. Hopefully, Trump and his gigantic ego won't ruin those things like he ruined the USFL. We've got the story for you right here. Check it!
Alabama fans are reportedly waiting four hours to get their picture taken with the BCS trophy, according to the news channels that are actually covering people taking their photo with the BCS trophy. We're still putting the finishing touches on a stellar Alabama fan BCS trophy experience post so if you've been at one of the Kroger, Publix, Academy Sports stops and have a photo we need to see, send it in: firstname.lastname@example.org
It was a worst-case scenario for State Farm Insurance last night on national television. How many times did the State Farm commercial featuring Aaron Rodgers run? 10? 14? So that, combined with America's jealousy towards Rodgers, made for some serious NSFW action on Twitter last night for a lily white guy who isn't used to receiving the f-bomb treatment. Our editors scoped out 19 favorites and serve them up for you haters. JUMP!
Imagine you & a buddy head over to Applebees to get the 2 for $20, watch some football & pound some 23 oz. beers. You just happen to be 49ers fans living in the Atlanta area. Then, imagine a convicted felon just happens to be at Applebees & is a Saints fan. It just happens to be the day when the Saints & 49ers are facing off in the NFL Divisional round. The 49ers score, you cheer & Saints fan tells you he's going to shut your ass up for good. What happens next? Gunshots. JUMP!
