  1. New EA Tiger Woods game has unfortunate catch phrase

    Feb 11, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    EA Sports has just released a trailer for its new Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online game (shown following the jump), and although I’m no game junkie, it looks pretty good. No wonder that EA recently announced that they were sticking by Woods, saying that they “respect his privacy.” Their Tiger Woods game was already in…

  2. Keeping it classy, the University of Kansas way

    Feb 11, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    OK, to be fair, the makers of this T-shirt have no official affiliation with KU. In fact, the Joe College apparel store in Lawrence, KS, where the shirt at right was produced, has been sued by the University of Kansas in the past for trademark infringement. That said, here’s the sticking point that makes this…

  3. You're a sex addict, Charlie Brown!

    Feb 11, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    I’ll admit it, back when he was co-hosting The Man Show, I was not much of a Jimmy Kimmel fan. In fact, in the days following 9/11, I wrote a column suggesting that he be kidnapped and shipped to Canada, because America no longer had the patience for sub-level TV humorists. But since landing his…

  4. At last, concrete proof that the Nets hate their fans

    Feb 11, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Wait a minute Nets, is that a threat? Because as much as I like basketball, I don’t consider this idea a real constructive use of my time. Others may disagree, which is why the team is holding a “Coach the Nets For a Day Sweepstakes.” Be advised, though, that if you win, you won’t actually…

  5. Morning Tweet: The Great Lindsey Vonn Bikini Rumpus

    Feb 11, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    We all recall the recent controversy surrounding Lindsey Vonn and Sports Illustrated, when the skier posed for the cover of their second-to-most-recent issue, smiling from a downhill tuck pose with her derriere pointing skyward. A couple of online feminist publications accused SI of objectifying women with that cover, and while most disagreed with the criticism,…

  6. Super Bowl XLIV the most-watched TV event ever? Pffft. Not even close

    Feb 10, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    It was inevitable that eventually some show would surpass the final episode of M*A*S*H in the category of most eyeballs glued to the TV screen. But this big rumpus over Super Bowl XLIV being the most-watched TV event ever is quite misleading, and to us M*A*S*H diehards, more than a little insulting. First, the numbers:…

  7. Wednesday Blogdome: The White Stripes control the skies

    Feb 10, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The White Stripes Went To War With The Air Force Over A Super Bowl Ad And Won. The United States Air Force, due to pressure exerted upon them by the White Stripes, has agreed to pull a commercial that aired during Super Bowl XLIV which featured a song that sounded suspiciously like the White Stripes…

  8. Barkley cites double standard in LeBron, Manning handshake controversies

    Feb 10, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    The comedy team of Charles Barkley and Howard Eskin took to the airwaves once again on Tuesday on Eskin’s radio show on WIP in Philadelphia, and once again they did not disappoint. What’s sticking in Barkley’s craw this week? Peyton Manning, of course. It occurs to Charles that the media “is giving a pass” to…

  9. Utah State's Shirtless Bill will jinx your free throw, steal your heart

    Feb 10, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    College basketball fans have been trying to distract opposing free throw shooters since the invention of the game itself, with varying degrees of success. The bighead craze has been perfected at Indiana University, and over at Duke, Speedo Guy captivated a nation for a few glorious months in 2003. But none of those have matched…

  10. Mississippi HS soccer player goes all Elizabeth Lambert on opponent

    Feb 10, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Breaking sports news video. MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL highlights and more. When is a high school soccer fight more than a soccer fight? Zach Windom, a player for Gulfport High, can be seen in the following video grabbing Northwest Rankin’s Arlington Shirley in a headlock and pounding him with his fist, touching off a pretty…

  11. Keep your hands off my momma, my Doritos, and that guy's testicles

    Feb 10, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Look, I went to a lot of trouble to throw this Super Bowl party, and all I ask in return is that my guests don’t get grabby with anyone’s testicles. It’s a simple enough request! Sadly, the Saints’ big comeback was too much for two Key West residents on Sunday, who began brawling during the…

  12. Jaimee Grubbs was miffed that Rachel Uchitel, and not her, was Tiger mistress No. 1

    Feb 10, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Alternate headline: Jaimee to Rachel: ‘I will see you in hell.’ Now it can be revealed: The reason that 23-year-old cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs released incriminating cell phone messages from Tiger Woods a few weeks back — the infamous “take your name off your phone” message included — is that she learned that another Tiger…

  13. Morning Tweet: Ain't that a kick in the groin

    Feb 10, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The last trash bags full of beads and empty liquor bottles are being thrown into the backs of garbage trucks along the parade route in New Orleans at this hour, as residents head home to grab an hour or two of sleep before Mardi Gras begins. So much partying still to do, so few brain…

  14. Vikings fans woo Favre with desperate billboard entreaty

    Feb 9, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Does Hattiesburg, Mississippi sit on some fault line in the space-time continuum of which I’m unaware? First Tiger Woods and then broadcaster Steve Phillips are said to have attended sex addiction therapy in the tiny hamelt, Elin Nordegren supposedly bunked at Brett Favre’s house, and now this. A billboard has popped up on U.S. 90…

  15. Saints, Johnny Chauvin hit all the right notes

    Feb 9, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    We can begin by saying that Johnny Chauvin’s story is New Orleans’ story. Five years ago he was wiped out when his home was washed away by Hurricane Katrina; but he had his wife and two sons and he had his music, and so like many touched by the disaster, he set to rebuilding his…

  16. Tuesday Blogdome: 'Pedobear' crashes the Winter Olympics

    Feb 9, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    ‘Pedobear’ is not in the Olympics. Our latest media snafu comes from the Polish-language newspaper of Olsztyn, which Wikipedia tells us is the 21st-largest city in Poland. I guess the Poles like their sports news a bit creepier than we do stateside, as they included Pedobear in their Olympic preview. [With Leather]

  17. Lombardi Gras: Sean Payton raises the roof

    Feb 9, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Next to Drew Brees hoisting his baby son during the post-game celebration, this has to be my favorite Super Bowl XLIV-related photo. Here’s Saints coach Sean Payton leaving Louis Armstrong International Airport in Kenner, La., on Monday. How often do you get to hold the Vince Lombardi Trophy up through your sun roof as hundreds…

  18. Oh no! Saints parade boob embargo?

    Feb 9, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    If you’re attending the Saints Super Bowl parade today in the hopes of exposing your naked lady chest parts in exchange for beads, be aware that you will be tackled, tasered and sent to prison. Or, you know, issued a citation. New Orleans police said that they will not tolerate any nudity at today’s parade…

  19. Zombieland: Saints fans crave Super Bowl merchandise, must be fed

    Feb 9, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    The scene at Academy Sports in Lafayette, Louisiana on Sunday night was not pretty, as hundreds (thousands?) descended on the parking lot waiting their turn to get in to purchase Super Bowl championship gear. The store closed at 8 p.m., but reopened at 9:30 when the game ended and multitudes gathered in search of brains…

  20. Lap Dances For Haiti? Come on pro athletes, give 'til it hurts

    Feb 9, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    I apologize for this post not technically being sports related, but it’s for a good cause, so please bear with me. Marilyn’s on Monroe, a strip club in Toledo, Ohio, is raising money for Haitian earthquake relief through something it calls “Lap dances for Haiti.” The promotion isn’t exactly what you — or Pacman Jones…

  21. Spurs remind web site that George Hill's private parts are registered trademark of the NBA

    Feb 9, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    George Hill’s genitals are enjoying their 15 minutes of fame (although I haven’t seen them — could be 30 minutes), but the San Antonio Spurs and the NBA are not amused. Because he obviously doesn’t own a TV or a computer and never reads the newspaper, Hill doesn’t know that it’s unwise to take cell…

  22. Morning Tweet: Brooklyn Rules

    Feb 9, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    OK, but here’s the problem: I rarely see the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, because I’m not fast enough to catch the mailman’s little delivery truck. He steals it every year like clockwork, finally delivering it a week later with several key pages missing and a big coffee cup ring over the cover model. So I…

  23. TMZ: Woods to return March 22 at Tavistock Cup

    Feb 8, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    We’ve heard this before so don’t get too excited, but Tiger Woods could be back on the links within weeks. TMZ is reporting that Tiger is planning to return to competition at a tourney in his own backyard; the Tavistock Cup in Orlando clubs on March 22-23. Citing a source “who works for the Woods…

  24. Monday Blogdome: Just win, baby

    Feb 8, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    My Favorite Super Bowl Image: Drew and Baylen Brees. Baylen is three months younger than my second kid, and I could not only totally picture myself holding him up in this situation, but I can actually sort of understand how Dad Brees must have been feeling in that moment, sharing it with his son. [Dan…

  25. Super Bowl halftime show probably going country next year, and Kenny Chesney wants it

    Feb 8, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    I’m a little embarrassed to say that I don’t usually watch the Super Bowl halftime show. It’s the only portion of he broadcast I feel I can safely miss; I have no idea what interception Peyton Manning is going to throw next, nor which of the six Doritos commercials will finally be funny. But I’m…
