  1. Morning Tweet: Are you ready for your closeup, Mr. Gilbert?

    Jan 8, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    I’ve seen Mr. Gilbert’s girlfriend, and I see no reason to trade her in; but then I’m a hoarder. If Nick Saban is hoisting the crystal Still-No-Sensible-College-Football-Playoffs Trophy, then why is Texas’ backup quarterback getting all the positive buzz this morning? Because unlike Nick Saban — who is about as cuddly as Clint Eastwood in…

  2. Your gratuitous who's-Alex-Rodriguez-dating-now post

    Jan 7, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Because you demanded it — at least that’s what was written on the note attached to the brick — here’s the lowdown on Alex Rodriguez’s new lady love. Her name is Elaine Spottswood, 25, of Key West, and the big news here is not that A-Rod has found a new girlfriend; it’s that he’s found…

    A Backyard Football Prank With Painful Results. You have to feel bad for that kid. Poor bastard didn’t see it coming at all. On a scale of dirty hits from one to ten, that’s a “Hines Ward.” [Second-String Fullback] Video following the jump.

  4. Handicapping the BCS title game: Take Longhorns and pass the Cheetos

    OK Jelisaholics, it’s Thursday; time for your weekly fix. And since some big college football game is also scheduled for tonight, Jelisa Castrodale has agreed to go in depth and handicap the action. We promise not to break in during the post with any weather reports. *** By Jelisa Castrodale Most nights, I sink deep…

  5. Yet another senseless pole dancing injury leads to lawsuit

    Jan 7, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    In the most horrifying pole dancing incident since the 2009 Teen Choice Awards, a woman is suing a New York fitness center for injuries she said she incurred while taking a pole dancing class. Sue Ann Wee says that she slid down the pole and hurt her shoulders, and wants unspecified cash. Evidently she thought…

  6. Tiger Woods impersonator Canh Oxelson on love, golf and life after the scandal

    Jan 7, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Until Tiger Woods decides to re-enter public life, the only touchstone we have to the world’s greatest golfer is Canh Oxelson. Call him Tiger Woods’ avatar; a 38-year-old educator from Los Angeles who is the dean of students at a prep school on weekdays, and on weekends makes handsome extra cash as a Woods impersonator.…

  7. Shula 80th birthday party guests: 'We watched like lepers as our heroes had a ball'

    Jan 7, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Anyone who saw the James Cameron version of Titanic knows the difference between first class and steerage. And such it was at Land Shark Stadium on Saturday night, where some Miami Dolphins season ticket holders contend they were treated as third-class citizens after being invited to Don Shula’s 80th birthday party. Even though the fans…

  8. Alleged mistress shopping book, claims Tiger had gay sex romps

    Jan 7, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    According to my calculations, Loredana Jolie Ferriolo is the 13th alleged Tiger Woods mistress to come forward either by media scrutiny or her own admission, and the only one to have attended Nassau Community College (that we know of). Her name first came out when Hollywood madam Michelle Braun mentioned her in an interview with…

  9. Morning Tweet: BCS title game … taste the excitement

    Jan 7, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    If you’re ordering pie for tonight’s big showdown between Texas and Alabama, chances are it won’t be from Domino’s; their new commercials were lampooned rather mercilessly on The Colbert Report last night. As for me, I’ll still be eating dry toast, trying to get over this flu bug. It also makes me a little queasy…

  10. Gilbert Arenas PETA anti-fur ad: Bad timing, or crazy like a fox?

    Jan 6, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Well, at least we know he wasn’t shooting animals with those guns. PETA rolled out its latest anti-fur campaign ad today; and while some may consider any Gilbert Arenas-based publicity today as bad timing, PETA takes a different view. As spokesman Dan Shannon told me via email: “Arenas may not have a job in the…

  11. Wednesday Blogdome: Evidently Fiesta Bowls are great aphrodisiacs

    Jan 6, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    While it wasn’t quite up to par with last year’s marriage proposal, the makeout session between Boise State offensive lineman Michael Ames and his fiancee, Tess Tracy, following the Broncos’ Fiesta Bowl win over TCU did its share to uphold the tradition. Is there Vitamin E in potatoes? Your Wednesday Blogdome continues after the jump.…

  12. Texas high school boys team wins 170-35; most not amused

    Jan 6, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Setting a state scoring record in high school basketball can be fun, if the other team is relatively competitive. But Houston’s Yates High School is taking some heat at this hour for its 170-35 win over Lee High School on Tuesday night; a game which included a fight, and featured Yates continuing to press the…

  13. Guest Post: MST3K's Mary Jo Pehl on the Vikings, Longhorns, and why sports matters

    Jan 6, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    If you love mocking bad movies — or have made one yourself — no doubt you’re familiar with Mystery Science Theater 3000, the television show that riffs on putrid cinema so that we don’t have to. The show enjoyed a 10-year run on Comedy Central and then the SciFi Channel, before being canceled in 1999…

  14. Photos: Jayson Williams having a good ol' time moments before DWI crash

    Jan 6, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    So Jayson Williams claims that he wasn’t drunk when his car had an encounter with a tree in New York City on Tuesday night, breaking a bone in his neck. And his manager, Akhtar Farzaie, said that the ex-Net would never engage is such behavior: “I’ve known Jayson for many years as his friend/manager and…

  15. Rihanna dating Matt Kemp? OK, sounds reasonable

    Jan 6, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    OK, the main reason I’m writing on this is so that I can link to my favorite Rihanna photo. I believe that was taken just before she was captured by Batman. In real life, she is also a singer, whose discography sometimes reads as if she singing just with Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren in…

  16. Ex-NHL coach says police told him Elin knocked out two of Tiger's teeth

    Jan 6, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Leave it to an ex-NHL coach living in Florida to get to the bottom of what transpired at Tiger Woods’ home on Thanksgiving night. You may discount this, but I find it one of the more believable accounts of what led to Mr. Woods’ Wild Ride; Pat Burns, during a radio interview with Toronto’s CKAC…

  17. Morning Tweet: Hey baby let's go to Vegas

    Jan 6, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    While it’s true that there was no posting on this blog on Tuesday, rumors that I was at The Palms in Las Vegas are completely false; I don’t care who you think you saw at the Moon nightclub. I was sick as a hyena, wondering why the hell that flu shot didn’t work. The same…

  18. A shirtless Tiger Woods in a toque to haunt your dreams

    Jan 4, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    For all of you mistress types who don’t mind sleeping with someone’s husband as long as he’s famous — not judging you, ladies; just taking roll call — here’s your eye candy for today. For the rest of you, sorry. But blame Vanity Fair, which in this month’s issue gives us Tiger Woods photos by…

  19. Monday blogdome: Chandler saves the day

    Jan 4, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If I ever thought that “Chandler” as a given name would catch on, I would have jumped all over that. Chandler Chandler would have been a a great name for my son. But as all of those Friends reruns have taught us, the name only exists in fiction. Um, wait a minute … what’s this?…

  20. Media gets punked by Elin's twin sister in ski vacation photos

    Jan 4, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Some enterprising tipster apparently made quite a few dollars telling the British tabloids that Elin Nordegren was spending a ski vacation in Chamonix, France this past weekend. Soon photos were snapped and reports reverberated in People Magazine, at, and several other sites, with Elin schussing about on the slopes and hanging out next to…

  21. Odds on that Usain Bolt-Chris Johnson race that likely won't happen

    Jan 4, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    As Jerry said in the Seinfield episode The Race, “I choose not to run.” Despite a breathless ESPN claim to the contrary, the agent for Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt said that there is “no truth” to a report by ESPN football analyst Adam Schefter that Bolt and Titans running back Chris Johnson are trying…

  22. Shocking dessert violence at Liberty Bowl luncheon

    Jan 4, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    I love it when scripts to old Three Stooges shorts become real life. You may have known that East Carolina running back Jonathan Williams and defensive back Leonard Paulk were suspended and missed the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, but did you know why? The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that Paulk and Williams scuffled during the AutoZone…

  23. Brit Hume: Tiger should 'turn to Christianity' for redemption

    Jan 4, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    This may come as shocking news to the many who thought that Tiger Woods was God, but Fox News anchor Brit Hume laid out an action plan on Sunday for Woods to achieve ultimate redemption for his sins. During a roundtable discussion about the new year on Washington Today, Hume said that, in order to…

  24. Aussie hurdler has boob job reversed to help country

    Jan 4, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    How far would you go to win a gold medal for your country? Hurdler Jana Rawlinson must really love Australia, because she had her fake boobs removed in order to have a better chance in the 2012 Games. Links to before and after photos following the jump. Meanwhile, she’s also having one boob replaced; her…

  25. Morning Tweet: Zorn faces the music

    Jan 4, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    One can’t help but feel a little sorry for Jim Zorn. They way I understand it, he was at first hired to be offensive coordinator for the Redskins when Joe Gibbs left as head coach, then was promoted to the top spot when Daniel Snyder couldn’t find anyone else. Well, now he’s toast, sadly. His…
