  1. The great high school cheerleader spaghetti-strap debate tears apart small town

    Jan 20, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Big trouble in Evansville, Wisconsin, at this hour, as members of the Evansville High School cheerleading squad have had their uniforms banned by the school board because they — forgive me for being so graphic here — expose the girls’ shoulders. The Evansville pom pon squad had been using the same uniforms for four years…

  2. Rachel Uchitel birthday party canceled? No!

    Jan 20, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    I don’t know how to say this so I’m just going to say it: Rachel Uchitel’s celebrity socialite birthday celebration, scheduled for Jan. 29 at Palm Beach’s swanky 251PB club, has been canceled. The statement, from her lawyer, Gloria Allred: “The media attention was unexpected and unwelcome and for that reason the planned party at…

  3. Big Bong Theory: Why was Phelps' pot use a big deal, but Lincecum's isn't?

    Jan 20, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Wearing a beanie with a suit is always a good look, and that’s how Tim Lincecum showed up for his day in court on Tuesday in Vancouver, Wash., on a drug paraphernalia charge. He came away with a $513 reduced sentence (after paying an earlier fine for possession of the actual marijuana); on the same…

  4. Mississippi State player: Facebook strip club claim 'was a joke'

    Jan 20, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    One of the authors of the Great Facebook Strip Club Controversy, Mississippi State football recruit Jameon Lewis, says that it was all a big misunderstanding. He and two other Bulldog recruits never visited a Starkville-area strip club called the Pony during their recruiting visit, he says, even though all three apparently boasted in similar Facebook…

  5. Morning Tweet: Things you can't unsee … Martha Stewart pole dance

    Jan 20, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Admit it; Martha Stewart is the woman of your dreams. Why else are you clicking “replay” over and over again on this video, all the while caressing a home-baked key lime pie you whipped up from one of her recipes? Don’t deny it; I see your dining room table, tastefully set per her instructions in…

  6. Promoter wants to start all-white basketball league

    Jan 19, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    I made a couple of calls to make sure this isn’t some sort of prank, and sadly, it’s indeed legit. A former pro wrestling promoter is starting an all-Caucasian pro basketball league which hopes to start in June in 12 cities, among them Augusta, Ga. The All-American Basketball Alliance announced its plans in a news…

  7. Tuesday Blogdome: First Tiger Woods photos could be worth $500K

    Jan 19, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Time for blogdome! Snap the first photos of Tiger Woods since he went into hiding, and you could be rich! No fair using this guy! More stuff following the jump. *** Tiger Woods Photos Could Be Worth $500K. Here’s what we know: Tiger Woods might still be on Planet Earth. After that, his whereabouts are…

  8. Mississippi State football recruits visit strip club during recruiting trip?

    Jan 19, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    I knew we wouldn’t have to wait long for our next social networking failscapade. Three high football recruits who made verbal commitments to Mississippi State had a little more fun than they were supposed to have during their official recruiting visit, it seems. Once they got home from the trip, all three posted accounts of…

  9. Egad, the Stanley Cup is missing!

    Jan 19, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    No wait, there it is. Much panic in the hockey world over the weekend when the Stanley Cup went missing; disappearing after a flight from New Jersey to Vancouver, BC. Mike Bolt, the legendary keeper of the Cup, went to retrieve the trophy from baggage claim in Vancouver, but it was nowhere to be found.…

  10. Key combatant tells all about the famous Anaheim hockey stick brawl

    Jan 19, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    it will forever be know as The Hockey Stick Incident; that moment on November 19, 2009 at the Honda Center in Anaheim when Ducks’ captain Scott Niedermayer tossed his hockey stick over the boards into the stands, and wild fisticuffs ensued. In the well-traveled video that has become a fan favorite, two men at first…

  11. Tiger Woods must sign 'a celibacy contract' as part of sex addiction therapy

    Jan 19, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Another apparent confirmation that Tiger Woods is currently undergoing sex rehab at a woodsy Mississippi clinic; author Benoit Denizet-Lewis, a recovering sex addict himself, said that someone he knows has confirmed that Woods is at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss. It’s unclear if Denizet-Lewis is a Pine Grove alumnus, but…

  12. Fancy Haitian golf course becomes ground zero for relief effort

    Jan 19, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Welcome to the Petionville Club, a lush golf and country club resort located on a hill above Port-au-Prince. Wait, Haiti has a golf and country club? Well, it did; now it’s been taken over by the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division, which has transformed the fairways and tennis courts into a water and food distribution center…

  13. Morning Tweet: Coakley pulling a Nate Kaeding in Massachusetts?

    Jan 19, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Good morning, Massachusetts. It’s election day, as you know, in which you get to choose who will get Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat. The candidates: The Republican who posed nude for Cosmopolitan Magazine, or the Democrat who thinks that Curt Schilling played for the Yankees. Martha Coakley had a substantial lead in the polls until a…

  14. Mike Greenberg apologizes for saying that thing he didn't mean to say

    Jan 18, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    I wasn’t going to post on this at all, because I consider it the broadcasting equivalent of driving a few feet with your baby in a car seat on the roof of your car. It’s scary, you certainly didn’t mean to do it, and is the kid laughing? By now you may have heard that…

  15. Dave Henderson will solve this steroids problem with his bathing observations

    Jan 18, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    So Tony La Russa’s contention that he never suspected Mark McGwire of taking steroids — either in Oakland or St. Louis — sounds perfectly reasonable to me. But then I also had a large sum of cash on the Chargers to win the Super Bowl. Others are more skeptical, but former teammates of McGwire with…

  16. Stubby Clapp's Video Vault: Alaska Hockey Space Bear is somewhat perturbed

    Jan 18, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The one thing that concerns me the most about global warming is the danger of the Northern Ice Cap breaking up, thus awakening the Alaska-Fairbanks Hockey Space Bear. The terrifying consequences below; plus other great videos following the jump. *** Holy crap, even more win. I had heard that the Alaska-Fairbanks hockey program was planning…

  17. Best Tiger Woods video yet features topless interview, Michael Jackson, Dalai Lama

    Jan 18, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’ve been treated to Chinese computer animated Tiger Woods recreations pretty much since the first week the story broke back in November, and they’ve all been great. I thought I’d seen them all, but here’s one which slipped through the cracks, and may be the wackiest of all. I have no real idea what they’re…

  18. Monday Blogdome: Ain't that a kick in the head

    Jan 18, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Hey, it’s round, it’s white, it’s in front of me … I’m kicking it. Ow! It hurts just watching that, but wait until you see the rest of the photos from this match in the Irish Cup. (Warning: Includes nose picking). Elizabeth Lambert approves. It’s all part of this complete breakfast called Monday Blogdome. Enjoy.…

  19. Yes, you can attend Rachel Uchitel's birthday party

    Jan 18, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    It was formerly known as 251 Sunrise, a trendy Palm Beach nightspot that attracted acts such as Bruce Springstreen and the E Street Band. Oh, and 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta stopped in on Sept. 1, 2001, and with a companion consumed about $1,000 worth of champagne in 45 minutes. Now it’s called 251PB, it’s still…

  20. High school team wins at buzzer on 3-pointer … or wait, maybe not

    Jan 18, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    We take you now to Bruce Township, Michigan, where Mark Morris hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give visiting Macomb Dakota High a one-point win over Romeo High. In situations like this, of course, it’s always wise to run over to the losing team’s bench and taunt them, and even sit on their bench…

  21. In San Diego, being a Jets fan is a misdemeanor

    Jan 18, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    This morning we salute the Jets fan who stood up in the middle of a crowd of Chargers fans, pointed to his Jets shirt and began yelling “Jets! Jets! Jets!” at the top of his lungs. Back in New Jersey, he’d be known as “that laid-back, mellow guy not throwing full cups of beer onto…

  22. Brett Favre has his pants on the ground, apparently

    Jan 18, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Most unexpected scene from the Vikings spanking of the Cowboys on Sunday — no, even more unexpected than Keith Brooking going after Favre on the sideline. It was in the locker room afterward. We can thank American Idol for this, and by thank I mean seethe with secret rage. As Favre addressed the Vikings following…

  23. Morning Tweet: Conan vs. Leno, the final chapter

    Jan 18, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    This tweet was from Friday of course, but I’ve been off for the past two days (how about that Weed Against Speed this weekend, huh? Let’s all give him a big hand for his great debut). For those who aren’t familiar with him, Tim Goodman is the TV critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, and…

  24. WSJ: Typical NFL game has only 11 minutes of actual football

    Jan 15, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    Of course anyone with TiVo already knows this; ever watch an NFL game you’ve recorded, and discovered that almost all of your time is spent fast-forwarding? That’s because — as the Wall Street Journal pointed out today with release of a study in their online edition — there is apparently only 11 minutes of actual…

  25. Friday Blogdome: PETA stands by Gilbert Arenas

    Jan 15, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Say what you will about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and their tactics, but they don’t cut and run when one of their advertising spokesmen faces hard times (sorry, Gillette). Received a statement by email from PETA senior publicist Michael Lyubinsky today, stating that PETA is moving forward with its anti-fur ad campaign…
