More evidence Mike Singletary is insane

Insane in a good way though. In his head coaching debut, Singletary told a first round pick to head to the showers AND apparently pulled down his pants and mooned the team in the locker room at half time. After pulling down his pants he continued his halftime speech with his pants at his ankles.

You have to love this man. If Samurai Mike does not get this job, I will be surprised. What a debut!

Browns don't want attention

A week after the Cleveland Browns suspended Kellen Winslow, they now take it back. It looks like they don't really want to fix the problem to me. Until they fess up to having dirty facilities, expect to see more staff infections in Cleveland.
MRSA anyone?

EliteXC closing doors. Thanks Kimbo!

After a last second effort to save the company, Elite XC signed "phenom" Kimbo Slice. After that failed miserably after Kimbo lost to a replacement no one heard of well, that was the end of EliteXC. Wait, Kimbo didn't just lose he was demolished in 14 seconds. The face of the franchise out of it with a bloody mug.
Thank Seth Petruzelli also. (on right in both photos, think what you wish)

Larry Johnson is quite the gentleman

Chiefs back Larry Johnson is in trouble for (allegedly) spitting his drink on a girl in a nightclub. This is the 4th time that Johnson has had run ins with ladies. Last month Larry Johnson was charged with simple assault (whatever that is) for pushing the side of a woman's face. I am not trying to defend the man but how is that a crime? Troy, I think the world is becoming pansy not the NFL.
Sexual assault material?

Devin Hester really does have superpowers

As I was playing Madden 09 this happened:

He did a hurdle and hurdled again while still in mid air. Devin Hester, you are ridiculous!

Pansy comment... where's the fine?

After Troy Polamalu let his feelings be heard yesterday, Goodell rebutted today. Surprisingly he did not through down a fine. I see how it is. Make a comment about how you disagree with a ref, and get a fine slapped on you. Make a comment regarding the integrity of the game and get away scotch free. Makes a lot of sense.

Worst... Soccer Miss... Ever

Watch and be amazed.


How do you not feel bad for this man. I don't know the outcome but just imagine if his team lost. He would be getting millions of death threats. On the other hand. Sign me up!!! I can make that shot.

Reading books at a baseball game?

Last night as I was watching the Rays demolish the Red Sox, TBS showed a shot of Stephen King. He was reading a book at a baseball game.
It is OK here though because the Red Sox were getting blown out. Reading a book is better than leaving the stadium altogether, I guess.

Tony Romo is a baby

Division 2 college football lineman, Trevor Wikre, has had his pinkie finger amputated because it was shattered. The Senior didn't want his season to end. Tony Romo also has a broken pinkie finger. So... why isn't it amputated Tony? Where's the heart? Where is the desire to play? This all shows what Hollywood does to people. All kidding aside, is this kid insane? I am sure that the NCAA would grant him another year because of his medical condition.

This drunk story makes it too easy

Chinese ping-pong player Wang Hao got into a fight with a security guard after urinating outside a karaoke club. I give you a minute to come up with out all the possible titles including Wang and peeing. Not only does the story provide many great titles he also provided a great quote, "I do not need excuses. I am the famous Wang Hao! I am the world champion! Does it matter if I beat you?". Only hours later did the self proclaimed greatest in the world go down in a tounament.

Florida school enforces Floridians hatred of baseball

A middle schooler in Florida has been suspended for "offensive hair". This is his hair style:
His hairdo is in support of the Rays.

That hairdo is not offensive, but a team with one of the best records in the league pulls only a few thousand to late season games is offensive. Where are all of their fans? Playing golf? Cleaning their dentures? Come on!

Save the champagne!

It is ridiculous how much champagne is wasted during celebrations in the MLB. They pop champagne for clinching, LDS, LCS, and World Series. I can understand it for the World Series but really? Celebrate getting in to the playoffs only to be swept and out of the playoffs 4 days later makes it all the more funny. This epidemic is getting out of hand. Think of how many bum's days they could brighten up with all of this.
We won the wildcard! Let's celebrate!

Interesting way of taking the heavyweight title

At the press conference for Samuel Peter and Vitali Klitschko, Peter literally walked away with Klitschko's title.
Peter was visibly upset because he couldn't understand German so he left... with the belt. This was most likely a show to gain interest in the fight but it is unique none the less.

Talk about a comeback/collapse of epic proportions

This is one of the best 2 minute 10 second drills of recent memory. The Colts came back to beat the Texans because of 21 points in the span of 2:10. Matt Schaub's back-up, Sage Rosenfels, aided the Colts by fumbling twice and throwing a pick. I would be easy for me to slam the back-up here but they had the lead with about two minutes left. Why is the back-up QB still scrambling? You have to blame the playcalling. Just pound the ball and don't let the back-up determine the game.

Gotsta Hate It: Frank TV

If you have watched any amount of playoff baseball on TBS you know where I'm coming from. Frank TV needs to go away. I don't think that there is a commercial on TBS that is not a Frank TV commercial. Within the last day, I have seen 50 Frank TV commercials and that is not a stretch. I don't know about you but I want to watch it less after seeing those commercials over and over.

I do have to admit he does a mean Charles Barkley and Jim Rome though.

This header is bad but it had to be done

You may notice a new look to the top of the page. I could stand it no longer. Quote from Deadspin comments

"I'm as tech savvy as John McCain, but Christ, did the guy who runs this site use MS Paint from Windows 95 to make his header? It almost makes me want to cut my eyes with a rusty knife, or trombone."

That pretty much says it all.

Breaking News: Bengals don't care about image

After resigning Chris Henry after cutting him for behavioral problems earlier, the Bengals have added yet another troublemaker to their arsenal. The Bengals have sign Cedric Benson. Yes, the highly underachieving Cedric Benson. Yes, the boating while intoxicated (allegedly) Cedric Benson.
Stay classy Cincy!

Are the Raiders kidding me? 76 yard field goal?

With Lane Kiffin hanging on to his job by a thread, he made an idiotic move. He decided to put his kicker Sebastian Janikowski out there to try a 76 yard field goal. 

Janikowski has a big boot but this is just stupid. He was 20 yards short of making it. There is a much better chance of throwing a bomb with Russell and scoring a touchdown than making this. If anyone knows something I don't, please tell me.

Greatest football catch ever

This catch by Edwin Baptiste is the greatest football catch ever made. No doubt about it. There is no need for a top 10 list because this one would top it. Simply amazing.


There are no words to explain this catch. Parallel to the ground, one handed with his fingertips, tucks the ball, and finishes of with a somersault. WOW! Just wow.

Sheff is a thug

After getting pounded on the head a few times by Fausto Carmona, Gary Sheffield has vowed revenge on all who hurt him during the Tigers-Indians brawl (roid rage?). Not only has he vowed revenge, he will get his revenge on or of the field. Sheff is going to all measures to get back for something that wasn't even intentional. Grow up Sheff!

Hell has begun to freeze

There wasn't one soul in  America (or the world) that picked the Dolphins to top the Patriots this weekend. If you did then you are lying. We knew that they would be worse without Tom Brady but no one expected this beat-down. 38-13. 38-13! A team that only won one game last year.

Hell will be completely frozen if the Cubs win the World Series, but that still would be less shocking than this.

Michael Beasley's nose is growing

After saying before the draft that he no longer had any character issues, it seems that he still does. Beasley has been fined $50,000 by the NBA  for the incident including Darrell Arthur and Mario Chalmers. Arthur and Chalmers were fined 20K a piece. To say that you have no character issues and partake in a party with weed and girls (who shouldn't have been there) is ludicrous. 
Beasley shows us where he hides his secret stash.

Carson Palmer is killing my fantasy team

Last few years Palmer has been a stud and I benefitted from that. Now, he is single handedly destroying my team. He gotten a total of 4 points in 2 weeks. Did I mention he was playing the Titans? Ridiculous. This can't be just me. I may just have to pick up Matt Cassel.
Those guys are good. Or maybe I just suck.

Near record day for MLB rainouts

Yesterday there were 6 rainouts or drizzle outs (Tigers-White Sox) in the MLB. I found this to be amazing amount. Obviously Hurricane Ike played a role in that number. Does anyone know the record on this. The 6 postponements are second to April 12, 1997 when there were 8 games that were postponed.

Gotsta Love It: This Olympic swimming trial

I heard of this during the 2008 Olympics and I thought I would never find the video. Well I did.

When there are only 3 men in a race and 2 of them get disqualified, well you are left with 1 guy racing himself. That by itself is a sight to be seen. But when he comes from a country without an adequate pool, then it is one man racing against himself and hardly finishing.

Do they have lifeguards at the Olympics? That may seem like a stupid question but you never see them. They must assume that the participants can swim.

Carlos Marmol and Obama separated birth?

I just realized that normally lights-out Cubs set-up man, Carlos Marmol, looks a whole lot like Barack Obama.I think that this is our best look a like yet. What do you think?

Matt Cassel the next Tom Brady?

Doubtful. But if you remember when Drew Bledsoe went out for the Pats 6th round pick Tom Brady took his place and stole the show. Cassel hasn't started a game for over eight years so lightning striking twice is not likely. Personally, they should get another QB. That's just me. Here are the notable options:

Daunte Culpepper
Tim Hasselbeck
Jared Lorenzen
Tim Rattay
Chris Weinke

And the winner is.............................................

Ocho Cinco still C. Johnson today

Chad Ocho Cinco stepped out on the field today for the first time since his name change. But his plan to get "Ocho Cinco" on the back of his jersey will have to wait a bit. The NFL, not surprisingly, has sided with their financial comrades. The spokesman for the NFL said, "He has a financial obligation to Reebok, which produces the jerseys available to fans. That has to be resolved before the on-field jersey can be changed." This seems to me that Roger Goodell is trying to postpone this genius move by Chad for as long as possible. Going to this measure to get around the rules deserves to be acknowledged.

East Carolina continues to wreak havoc against ACC

A week after beating #17 Virginia Tech, the Pirates did it again today beating #8 West Virginia who is the favorite to win the ACC in my book. These past two games were the toughest games on their schedule. East Carolina has two hard games the rest of this season NC State and Virginia who got absolutely demolished by USC. Mark my word, East Carolina will finish the season undefeated.

Struggling against Ohio, OSU will not beat USC

We have seen Ohio State choke before and that is what they almost did today. With their best chance of winning the national title in years the Buckeyes almost blew their chances today against the Ohio Bobcats. OSU was losing in the 4th quarter but they rallied back to win. If they can barely win against Ohio how are they going to beat the almighty USC? Let us all hope that USC beats OSU badly so we have no chance of OSU embarrassing themselves again in the title game.

Ivan Ukhov is accused of drinking vodka at a meet. He failed to clear the bar on all of his attempts. What do you think?

Maybe he just sucks.

Worst...Logo...Ever...

OK so the OKC team name is the Thunder. Not much of a shocker. What is a shocker, kind of, is this logo (I say kind of because a blogger found a leak of it). What is that? It took the geniuses two months to make this. With two months to come up with an original logo, they give us this. This is the most generic WNBAish logo an NBA team has ever had.
This is just terrible and I hope they change it pronto.

Brett Favre joins a prestigious club

Brett Favre is honored to be a captain for the Jets. He joins a prestigious club of New York Jets quarterbacks to be captains. He joins only one actually. The famed Chad Pennington. That is not really saying much is it?
After selling the most jerseys over the last month was there any doubt that he would be named a captain?

Bengals think that "Ocho Cinco" is a joke

Chad Johnson would like to be referred to as Chad Ocho Cinco. The Bengals think that this is all a joke as evidence from their roster.



Does this hint to Johnson still being on the back of his jersey?

Jacked Up!! Top 13 biggest football hits ever

With NCAA Football underway and the start of the NFL season approaching, I figured we should take a look at the best football hits on the web. I fished out the plays with obvious helmet-to-helmet contact because that is not a legal hit. Here are your unlucky 13:

13. Daniel Sepulveda- We've seen this guy before. This punter is all about hard knocks.



12. Lawrence Wright- Watch as the receiver flys 5 feet after being hit.



11. Darrell Reid- Chris, you might want to look out. Is he blind?



10. Rey Maualuga- Kids, this is why a QB should slide when he sees the hit coming.



9. Maurice Jones-Drew- delivers a punishing block.



8. Stanford Samuels- Roscoe Parrish believes he can fly.



7. Jack Tatum- Receiver gets annihilated and his chinstrap popped clean off.



6. Sheldon Brown- Reggie Bush gets decleated and he didn't even see it coming.



5. Quentin Coryatt- Gotta love how nonchalant he is after delivering that big blow.



4. Sean Taylor- You have to feel sorry for this punter.



3. Unknown- This receiver almost loses the top half of his body.



2. Unknown- I can almost feel the ground shaking on this hit.



1. Dennison Robinson- The announcer is not exaggerating when he said he almost got decapitated.



Tell me what you think. Do any hits need to switch places? As always, if you think that I missed something tell me in the comments.

Where should these go?

Get to know the name Louie Sakoda

University of Utah's Kicker/Punter Louie Sakoda is a name that you should get familiar with. In Utah's win over Michigan he hit a 53 yard field goal. The thing that made it spectacular was that the kick was so good it could have had a chance to make it from 60 yards out. Could he be the highest kicker ever taken in the draft?

Back in the day Brian Urlacher was a nerd

Old Spice has a new ad out that definitely caught my eye.
This is absolutely hilarious. Is that how people look in New Mexico? The picture in the bottom-left makes it even more funny. From now on I will refer to Urlacher as Brian "the colossal man mountain of awesomeness" Urlacher.

Chad Johnson Ocho Cinco has officially lost it

Was this a ruse to just keep this on:that's right, because all of the speculation is true. Chad Johnson has legally changed his name to Chad Ocho Cinco. I don't think that he knows that 85 in Spanish is ochenta y cinco, but he probably doesn't care. With his name legally Chad Ocho Cinco, I assume that he can wear Ocho Cinco on his back without being fined. I thought that he was a little crazy before, but this just proves to me that Chad has completely lost his mind.

Merriman thinks he is a tough guy

After being told by numerous doctors that his two torn ligaments in his leg would need surgery, Shawne Merriman decided to disagree. If he actually plays the whole season, Tiger Woods is a wimp for the U.S. Open. I'm placing my money on the knee to give in before 8 games. What is the over/under?

Mariotti out, so why is he still there?

As I heard that Jay Mariotti was out at the Chicago Sun-Times yesterday, I flipped to Around the Horn and realized that he was still in his usual spot in the Sun-Times building. What is up with that? Either the show is recorded a day early or he made peace and returned to the Sun-Times.

Remembering the Little League Titans

All who played organized baseball as a kid know what I am talking about here. There was always that one kid. The kid at the age of 10 had a mustache was 5'10'' and had arms bulging out of his sleeves. Every league had at least one of these. This kid would always pitch and leave you crapping your pants every time you walked to the plate. When you were just reaching a 50 mile per hour fastball, this kid was at 70. We all just dealt with it as it was a part of life. Now some league is teaching our kids how to be pansies by banning these titans. I'm talking about the case of Jericho Scott. He was banned because he apparently throws too fast. It is bad enough to give all of the kids trophies but now they prevent the best from getting them. I've got an idea. How bout we kick out all of the kids of parents that thinks a 40 mph fastball is going to hurt their kid.

Chris Bosh hits on girl while eating burger in China

While Chris Bosh and Dwight Howard enjoy a meal in China, Chris Bosh sees a girl at the next table and I'm pretty sure that he calls her pretty.


I've already checked and he doesn't have a wife so this will do no harm. I know they won gold and all but shouldn't they have other priorities. Wouldn't it make sense to hit on a girl that lives within 5000 miles of home.

Update: According to Cuzzy (cuzoogle.com check it out) Chris Bosh does indeed have a girlfriend in Toronto.

Would Chad Johnson would beat Usain Bolt in a race?

Even though Chad wanted to race Michael Phelps on land, I put him up against another great Olympian, Usain Bolt. Using Usain Bolt's 100 meter splits, seeing whom is faster is possible unlike the Phelps situation. The answer briefly, is that Ocho-Cinco would not be faster.

By using math and converting meters to yards you can find what Usain Bolt's 40 yard dash time would be. By the math, Usain Bolt runs about a 4.20 40. Chad Johnson on the other hand, who is fond of challenging people or horses to races, ran a 4.54 40 at the NFL combine.

Still confused about the closing ceremony

I really can't believed that I managed to watch the whole thing. Almost everything about it was horrible. From the costumes,to the Dr. Suess like instruments,to the stupid tower.It was all just way too much!
The only cool thing about it was the bike that was one big wheel.

Link initiation holmes: 8/25

This is from a big site but I just hate the LLWS- Deadspin
Mr. Met threatens Yankee fan- Busted Coverage
7 movies to come out of the Olympics- Cuzoogle
Why you have to love Ray's manager Joe Maddon- Bugs & Cranks

Were Usain Bolt and Terrell Owens seperated at birth?

I'm surprised that I have not seen this comparison yet. Am I the only one that sees the similarities here?
Is this a stretch? I think it may be because they both showboat.

In case you missed it: 2004 Athens marathon runner attacked

If you missed this story, like I certainly did, it is a good one. In the marathon event during the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Brazil's Vanderlei de Lima was leading the race with only two miles left to go. A crazed protester then ran onto the course and subdued the leader for a total of 20. That may not seem like a long time, but as you can imagine, after running 24 miles you will have very little strength left and the last thing you want to do is fight of an idiot.

Vanderlei de Lima went on to only get the bronze medal because the incident left him shocked and with alot less energy. The protester could have run onto the course as I have no problem with that, but when you interfer and demolish his chance for gold, that's not right. Cornelius "Neil" Horan, the protester, is an inconsiderate jackass. That's all I can say about him.
Vanderlei de Lima in pain.

Lima did not angrily yell and scream because of not receiving the gold. He moved on and made the best of the incident. He rightfully returned home to Brazil as a hero.

Are you kidding me? Cuban Olympian kicks ref in head

A while back we had a story on a drunk ref. Well now we have another story about a ref but this one is more serious. Angel Matos of Cuba kicked Olympic Taekwondo referee Chakir Chelbat after a diputed call.

Matos was DQed by the ref for delaying the match by taking too much time after an injury. Matos then yelled at, pushed, then kicked the ref before leaving. Chelbat's required stiches on his lip. Matos is facing a life-time ban from the sport and I wouldn't be surprised if there are criminal charges.

Obviously there are more peaceful ways to object such as just yelling or protesting both of which we have seen already in these games.

Here's the video.
