  1. NY Post Tiger Woods coverage bigger than 9/11?

    Dec 15, 2009, 12:00 PM EDT

    I think we’ve officially reached a tipping point in the Tiger Woods saga. Today’s big news, via Newsday’s Neil Best on Twitter, is the fact that the New York Post has devoted 16 consecutive front-page covers to Woods, which is three short of their record, when they rolled out 19 straight covers on the 9/11…

  2. Roy Williams and the fascist state of North Carolina basketball

    Dec 15, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    The Presbyterian College basketball fan who was ejected from the Smith Center on Saturday during his team’s game with North Carolina is objecting to reports that he was drunk and ticketless. He’s also saying that he was 86ed from the premises by order of Tar Heels czar-like head coach Roy Williams, because cops told him…

  3. Saturday Night Live finds its next Sarah Palin in Tiger Woods

    Dec 15, 2009, 10:00 AM EDT

    Just as Tina Fey’s rendition of Sarah Palin last year put Saturday Night Live back on the map, the Tiger Woods media tsunami is looking like it could help keep it there. Although I can’t help but think what greatness would have occurred if this story had been placed in the hands of Eddie Murphy,…

  4. Morning Tweet: Break up the 49ers

    Dec 15, 2009, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Behold this glorious tweet I found waiting for me this morning: The first time this exact sentence had been typed in the English language, no doubt. What would Daniel Boone or George Washington think of this particular predicament? Little did our rugged ancestors know when they forged our great nation that things would come to…

  5. Report: Rachel Uchitel receiving death threats

    Dec 14, 2009, 6:23 PM EDT

    Remember when — it seems like years ago — Tiger Woods only had one mistress? It was a simpler time, when the world still made sense; when doctors made house calls and children rolled hoops down the street with sticks. Now that there’s a parade of alleged lovers, it’s fond to think back to Rachel…

  6. Monday blogdome: Rick Dempsey saves Christmas

    Dec 14, 2009, 5:15 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s time for blogdome, where we round up as many great blog items as we can find and stack them one on top of another for your amusement. Today’s leadoff topic: The magical Holiday sounds of former Orioles catcher Rick Dempsey. It’ll be our merriest Christmas ever! *** Rick Dempsey’s new Christmas CD will not…

  7. Brock Williams' 2001 Super Bowl ring still resides in Las Vegas

    Dec 14, 2009, 3:00 PM EDT

    You no doubt remember former New England Patriots cornerback Brock Williams, who pawned his Super Bowl ring a few years ago for $2,000. Williams never played for the mercurial Patriots that season, tearing a knee ligament in training camp and riding out the season on the practice squad. But he still got a ring, as…

  8. Notre Dame building 'hockey cathedral'

    Dec 14, 2009, 1:05 PM EDT

    According to the Bible, or at least Catholic Shopper.com, Christ was an avid hockey player who enjoyed mixing it up in the local youth leagues. Remember Billy; hooking Jesus is considered a sin. That’s why this recent development at Notre Dame is welcome news: The university has just announced plans to design a new 5,000-seat…

  9. One man's lament: Tiger stole my girlfriend!

    Dec 14, 2009, 12:00 PM EDT

    Brian Kimbrough, a former bartender at the Roxy Night Club in Orlando, wins this week’s Poor Sap Award for achievements in having your girlfriend stolen by Tiger Woods. Kimbrough obviously doesn’t mind telling the world his sad story, admitting to the New York Post that his former girlfriend, Julie Postle, began seeing Tiger Woods while…

  10. Two women's hoops players suspended for punching out male cheerleader

    Dec 14, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    Leave it to Missouri to do things unconventionally. Two college basketball players have been suspended for assaulting a cheerleader, but someone tell Gloria Allred to unpack … this time it’s female-on-male crime. What kind of a world do we live in where a male cheerleader can’t attend an off-campus party and not be beaten up…

  11. Elin finally appears in public — sans wedding ring

    Dec 14, 2009, 10:00 AM EDT

    The 138th Open Championship - Round One

    Just as it is with sponsor Accenture, is Tiger Woods’ marriage already over? Elin Nordegren was seen in public for the first time since Tiger’s car crash on Nov. 27, and one sharp-eyed photographer — they’re trained to look for such things, I suppose — noticed that she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring (dramatic music…

  12. Morning Tweet: The next round's on DeSean Jackson

    Dec 14, 2009, 9:00 AM EDT

    Yes, I gotta admit that if this had happened in Philly, it’s all we’d be reading about today. As it is, Giants fans throwing loaded beer bottles at the Eagles’ DeSean Jackson only warrants a lowly spot on this guy’s Twitter page, and a couple of Philadelphia blogs. It happened in the third quarter of…

  14. Oh no! Patriots mascot nabbed in prostitution sting

    Dec 11, 2009, 7:00 PM EDT

    AFC Wild Card Playoff Game - New York Jets vs New England Patriots - January 7, 2007

    I don’t know how to say this so I’m just going to say it; Pat the Patriot, beloved mascot of the New England Patriots and inspiration to Boston-area children since 1960, has been arrested in a prostitution sting. But it gets worse: Evidently Pat was caught answering a naughty ad on Craigslist. Placed by a…

  15. Daly, Tiger role reversal has the golf world reeling

    Dec 11, 2009, 6:30 PM EDT

    When this picture was taken, John Daly was the Curly Howard of golf; always getting into impossible scrapes and whining plaintively to Moe after his latest misadventure with a Hooters waitress: “I’m a victim of circumstance!” And Tiger Woods was, well, Tiger Woods. But now, as if in a Dr. Frankenstein experiment, the two have…

  16. Minnesota high school team earns a shutout … in basketball

    Dec 11, 2009, 4:04 PM EDT

    When Moose-Lake Willow River puts the clamps on defensively, look out. The Minnesota varsity high school girls basketball team beat Wrenshall 65-0 on Thursday, thanks in part to smothering defensive pressure, plus the fact that Wrenshall missed 11 layups. Oops. Key quote: Wrenshall coach Michelle Blanchard says she’s got a young, inexperienced team this year…

  18. British court bans nude Tiger Woods photos

    Dec 11, 2009, 1:05 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    OK, lawyers for Tiger Woods aren’t saying that nude photos of their client actually exist (nudge nudge, say no more), but they are scrambling around the globe anyway, filing injunctions to prevent these non-existent photographs from appearing in the media. In Britain you can do that — their laws concerning libel and slander are quite…

  19. Elin tells Tiger he must give up golf?

    Dec 11, 2009, 12:00 PM EDT

    The big news in the Tiger Woods saga today would seem to be Jamie Jungers on the Today Show, telling the world that she dumped Tiger because he wouldn’t give her money. But how about his wife, Elin Nordegren, giving an ultimatum to keep the marriage together? The London Sun is saying that one of…

  20. Ecstasy pills with the Olympics logo? Curling condoms? The Vancouver Games are gonna be fun

    Dec 11, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    Canada’s crackdown on unauthorized Winter Olympics merchandise is going quite well, I see. Vancouver police executing a drug raid at a residential home found a cache of ecstasy tablets with the Olympic logo imprinted on them, proving once again that if you can’t win a lot of medals, you can still be deliriously happy. Also,…

  21. Chad Ochocinco to rename himself after crappy 1980s car?

    Dec 11, 2009, 10:00 AM EDT

    I’ve always said that Chad Ochocinco is one whack in the head and a couple of tattoos from being Dennis Rodman, and I don’t mean that in a good way. In ten years he’ll be appearing at local card shows with a table adjacent to Pete Rose, signing copies of his latest straight-to-video action movie…

  22. Morning Tweet: Thanks mom … my mother, folks

    Dec 11, 2009, 9:00 AM EDT

    Here’s how bad it’s getting for the Steelers … not only do they lose to the Browns, but their mothers are brawling with local ruffians on game day. The mother of linebacker James Harrison was questioned by Akron, Ohio police last night at some point following Pittsburgh’s 13-6 loss to Cleveland. Those women better stop…

  23. Update: Golfers deny making critical comments about Woods

    Dec 10, 2009, 4:30 PM EDT

    Two PGA Tour golfers who were quoted by a Life & Style Magazine reporter as saying critical things about Tiger Woods are saying that they never talked with the magazine. Wednesday’s online edition of Life & Style Weekly included an article with quotes from Ben Crane and Charles Warren about Woods and wife Elin Nordegren.…

  24. The Blind Side: One woman's journey to an AMC theater and beyond

    Dec 10, 2009, 3:00 PM EDT

    All right, simmer down … here’s your Jelisa Castrodale for the week. (I refer to her growing fan base as Castrophiles). The other day she finally attended The Blind Side, and since I paid for the ticket, she was required to do a report. Here it is. *** By Jelisa Castrodale Last weekend, the top…
