Monday Blogdome: Dana White says Herschel Walker fight was a joke

Feb 15, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

Dana White Doesn’t Think Much About the Strikeforce Organization. “I say it all the time, they are a small organization, and they are always going to be a small organization. The whole Herschel Walker thing, listen I give the guy the props … he is almost 50 years old. He is still in great shape and he went out trained in mixed martial arts and he beat a guy who had no athletic ability, no stand up and no ground. You know what makes me crazy is the media attention it got. ESPN will cover Herschel Walker fighting when you got guys like George St. Pierre, Anderson Silva, Brock Lesner, and BJ Penn. All these great athletes that have been training for years and are the best in the sport and you are talking about Herschel Walker? Then you start talking about Walker possibly fighting Jose Canseco? Oh my god, give me a break. … You know what would happen to Herschel Walker over here? It would be the first death in MMA. [Sports Radio Interviews]


* Orioles’ Bergesen injured filming TV ad, not unlike ‘King of Pop’. When I first read that Brad Bergesen, one of the many young promising pitchers on the Orioles staff, hurt himself in December filming a TV commercial for his club, the unfortunate Michael Jackson/Pepsi incident of 1984 came to mind. It’s just the kind of thing that’s not supposed to happen. Bergesen, 24, won’t be ready for the start of spring training this week — he says he’s about 10 days behind his teammates — after straining a capsule in his right shoulder while giving his all for the Orioles’ marketing department.

* The Tebow photo everyone is talking about. The photo of UM alum Molly Jones flashing “The U” in a photo with Tim Tebow has been making the rounds on the internet at lightning speed and the biggest question is “how did she pull this off?” Because Molly is a good friend, we were able to get the inside story of how the photo happened.

* 8 softball questions with Fat Willard: Anjelah Johnson. This week, I got to chew the email chaw with Anjelah Johnson, stand-up comic and former chearleader for a team I’m told plays in the NFL named the Oakland Raiders. She has a new DVD out called That’s How We Do It and it’s pretty damn funny. [Hugging Harold Reynolds]
* Azerbaijan Pants Rule! I was watching the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver and I was mostly unimpressed. That was until the Parade of Nations began and the Azerbaijans stole the show rocking their awesome pants! Check out these bad boys straight out of the 1980s [Larry Brown Sports]
