  1. Ask your soccer coach if Flomax is right for you

    Dec 10, 2009, 1:00 PM EDT

    This video of a German soccer goalie running behind a stadium advertising barrier to take a leak — while the game is going on — is pretty amusing. OK, not as amusing as this, but it’ll do for a Thursday. Well, hopefully this ref was working the game. Video following the jump.

  2. Elin broke Tiger's tooth with a cell phone?

    Dec 10, 2009, 12:00 PM EDT

    If true, that’s quite a shot. Cell phone, right to the kisser! Boom goes the dynamite! I saw this Star Magazine report on Tuesday, and decided not to write about it. But I was listening to KNBR (San Francisco) radio host Ralph Barbieri last night, and he had this to say: “Talk among the golf…

  3. The Tiger Woods text messages: 'Quiet and secretively we will always be together'

    Dec 10, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    The New York Post has obtained what it says are text messages between Tiger Woods and alleged mistress Jaimee Grubbs (she’s No. 2 in your program), and while we may never know if they’re authentic, scrolling through them does prove a couple of things. 1. Reading other people’s text messages is excruciating, even when the…

  4. Dartmouth squash heckling incident rocks Ivy League

    Dec 10, 2009, 10:00 AM EDT

    I hope you’re sitting down for this, because the venerable sport of Ivy League squash has been propelled into a state of turmoil and bitter recrimination, and I’m not going to sugarcoat the details. Dartmouth president Jim Yong Kim has apologized to Harvard University for the behavior of some students on Saturday, after the Harvard…

  5. Morning Tweet: Get your popcorn ready

    Ha. Yes, that would be a scary movie indeed (I hope it’s in 3D). And speaking of baseball, I thought you should know that Barry Bonds’ agent has officially called an end to the slugger’s baseball career. Quote: “When 2008 came around, I couldn’t get him a job. When 2009 came around, I couldn’t get…

  6. U.S. congressman latest to abandon the S.S. Tiger Woods

    Dec 9, 2009, 5:30 PM EDT

    As Tiger Woods’ public image sinks slowly into the icy waters of the north Atlantic (with all of his alleged mistresses occupying the same nearby life boat), now comes word that a U.S. congressman is writing him off as well. Joe Baca, D-Calif., is canceling his efforts to award Woods with a Congressional Gold Medal,…

  7. Wednesday Blogdome: Fun with ESPN graphics

    Dec 9, 2009, 4:00 PM EDT

    Screw it, we’re doing blogdome every day. And no blogdome week can be complete without some fresh-from-the-oven ESPN graphics Fail. In today’s example, the Worldwide Leader throws up a graphic on its Bowl Selection Show which shows the logos for Virginia Tech (OK so far) and Tennessee (oops!). I don’t think Lane Kiffin appreciates his…

  8. Porn star alleges on video she had sex with Tiger Woods

    Dec 9, 2009, 2:30 PM EDT

    Porn actress Holly Sampson, who is reputed to be either the seventh or eight woman to step forward as an alleged mistress of Tiger Woods (furiously flips through program), admitted in a video interview in May of this year that she had sex with the golfer. No one believed her then (and not sure everyone…

  9. Tim Thomas in early-morning Denny's melee; gay slur alleged

    Dec 9, 2009, 1:30 PM EDT

    Well if you’re going to be involved in an all-out, chair-throwing restaurant brawl, it might as well be at Denny’s. Tim Thomas of the Dallas Mavericks never got to his wheat toast and fresh sausage links early this morning, because he was too busy applying the Belgian Waffle Slam to some dude’s face at the…

  10. Women to row across Atlantic Ocean naked. Aquaman approves

    Dec 9, 2009, 12:30 PM EDT

    Annie Januszewski and Mel King didn’t think they were getting enough publicity for their WoodVale Challenge Atlantic Rowing Race, so they decided to do it naked. Two months on a tiny boat, rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, in the nude. Well, it worked — here’s your post, girls. They are one of 30 teams —…

  11. A reality show based on NBA wives? I'll pass

    Dec 9, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    If you’re like me, the only thing you can think of while watching an NBA game is, “I wonder what the wives are doing right now?” Fortunately VH1 was thinking the same thing. Its new reality series, Basketball Wives, debuts in March of next year, and will follow NBA players’ significant others as they do…

  12. The Tiger Woods porno is almost ready. Of course it is

    Dec 9, 2009, 10:00 AM EDT

    It won’t be completed in time for Christmas (sadly you’ll have to settle for Avatar), but a porno film based on the Tiger Woods adultery scandal is being rushed into production by Adam & Eve Pictures, and should be ready “in about eight weeks,” according to a spokesman. Of course you’re now asking yourself, how…

    The great Lego artists have given us many fine reenactments in recent years — the Obama inauguration and Monty Python and the Holy Grail are two of my favorites — but I’m sure this particular one will go down as one of the greatest in Lego history. Here’s the Lego Tiger Woods accident reenactment, complete…

  14. Brendan Haywood: 'Elin better be glad she's married to Tiger Woods instead of Chris Brown'

    Dec 8, 2009, 7:30 PM EDT

    It seems that everyone has an opinion about the Tiger Woods saga; even my dog, who has stolen and buried every golf ball I had in the house. But very few professional athletes have ventured anything specific about it; with the possible exception of a couple of Tiger’s golfing pals. But now comes the Wizards’…

  15. Life of Brian: Is Notre Dame being force-fed a phony Kelly abortion rights controversy?

    Dec 8, 2009, 6:30 PM EDT

    As the Fighting Irish search for a new head coach to fill Charlie Weis’ rather large Sansabelt slacks, three columnists at major newspapers seem convinced that Brian Kelly’s stance on politics and abortion are being weighed in the decision-making process. Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times, for instance, said that Kelly is “said to be…

  16. Saints fans, booze and firearms — what could possibly go wrong?

    Dec 8, 2009, 5:00 PM EDT

    This video was sent in by several people, and I can’t decide what is best about it. All I know is that drunken Louisianans with rifles attempting to shoot a large flat-screen TV while yelling “Who Dat!” is what America is all about. Also I think I heard a machine gun. Be sure to hold…

  18. Segway scooters and high school cheerleader photos do not mix!

    Dec 8, 2009, 1:55 PM EDT

    So a guy in Frederick Maryland is zipping around town on a Segway scooter taking pictures of high school cheerleaders, and then posting the pics on his web site. Innocent fun, or most inappropriate use of a Segway since this? You be the judge. Actually, Frederick parents are also judging, and it seems to be…

  19. Elin planning end run around Tiger? Purchases mansion in Sweden

    Dec 8, 2009, 11:20 AM EDT

    Elin Nordegren: Smarter than we thought? According to NBC London, Tiger Woods’ beleaguered wife purchased a $2.5 million home in Sweden in negotiations that began “two months ago,” apparently in her own name and that of her twin sister. Could it be that Elin discovered her husband’s (alleged!) philandering ways long before anyone thought she…

  20. Pregnant and playing high school volleyball? Why not file a lawsuit?

    Dec 8, 2009, 10:00 AM EDT

    Well, a player on a Fort Worth high school volleyball team has filed a civil rights complaint against the school — and is considering a lawsuit — because her coach required her to get a permission slip from her doctor before she could continue playing. Oh, did I mention that the player is pregnant? Even…

  21. Morning Tweet: Keeping up with Tiger Woods

    Dec 8, 2009, 9:00 AM EDT

    I’m not sure what possessed the Jacksonville Jaguars to put on this little skit during Sunday’s game with the Houston Texans, but it worked … the home team won. Where do you even get a tiger costume and oversize golf club on short notice? Nicely played. If you feel like downing an Ambien and plowing…

  22. Attack of the Tiger Woods parody videos

    Dec 7, 2009, 5:00 PM EDT

    “This just in … Tiger Woods is back in the hospital, after tragically being hit by his own car.” Like a swarm of locusts feasting on your crops, the Tiger Woods parody videos have arrived. And no one is safe. To save you a lot of time and headaches, I’ve collected some of the best…

  24. Reports: Tiger mulling the Oprah Option?

    Dec 7, 2009, 2:00 PM EDT

    As yet more women line up to tell sordid tales of their alleged affairs with Tiger Woods, I am reminded of this line from A Night at the Opera: When the manicurist enters Groucho’s cabin and asks how he wants his nails, Grouch replies, “You better make them short, it’s getting kind of crowded in…

  25. Tiger Woods’ wife packs kids, Tupperware and moves out?

    Dec 7, 2009, 12:00 PM EDT

    elinglasses

    Elin Nordegren has allegedly moved out of the Orlando home she shared with husband Tiger Woods, according to Radar Online. My guess is that Elin’s mom talked some sense into the young lady. Elin Nordegren had enough and moved out of the $2.6 million Windermere home, neighbors and other sources close to Tiger, told RadarOnline.com…
