  1. A useful iPhone app for Duke fans and trash talkers

    Apr 1, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    On Tuesday we posed the question, why all the Duke hate? Perhaps one reason is that Mike Krzyzewski has his own iPhone app. Excerpt from its description on the CoachKApp web site: Coach K provides personalized “coaching tips” to maneuver players through a series of dynamic obstacles which come to life through trend-setting graphics. Yech.…

  2. Japanese MMA is a bit different than ours

    Apr 1, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Japan is a land of nonsensical horseplay, confusing shenanigans and colorful non sequiturs. In other words, every day is April Fool’s Day there, so I have no doubt that this story is real. Here is Japanese kickboxer and MMA fighter Yuichiro “Jienotsu” Nagashima, who fancies entering the ring dressed in costumes based on popular Japanese…

  3. Morning Tweet: Fool's paradise

    April Fool’s Day, 2010. I pity the poor schmuck who actually receives bad news today. “No Mr. Peterson, your wife really was involved in an accident; we need you at the hospital right away. Why are you laughing? This is very inappropriate, Mr. Peterson!” Here on the Internets machine, things are even more confusing. For…

  4. The Tiger Woods condom statue will unite the world

    Mar 31, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    As you might imagine, I get several emails each day asking, “Hey, why no likenesses of Tiger Woods made entirely of condoms?” Today I put that complaint to rest. We had to travel to far-off Bangkok (shut up, Beavis), to find one, but here you go. The creation, on display at the Cabbages and Condoms…

  5. Wednesday Blogdome: 'Mom, on this the most special day of all, sorry I hit you with that ball'

    Denard Span Fouls Ball Off of His Mother. Span fought off a pitch from Phil Hughes in the first inning of an exhibition game against the Yankees on Wednesday, only to see his defensive swing turn into an all-out assault on the woman that brought him into the world. Span fouled the ball into the…

  6. The Tim Lincecum bobblehead doll is made from PEOPLE!

    Comments Off

    Opening Day is on the doorstep, and here are some tweets that have just crossed my desk. I have to admit that as a Giants fan — and as a human — I find them somewhat disturbing. @sfgiants bobbleheads in 2010. Including Lincecum on July 16. Featuring real hair. Yes. I said real hair. But…

  7. Jesse James: 'I'll get help like Tiger Woods did'

    Mar 31, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    I’ve been reluctant to write on any of the Jesse James/Sandra Bullock/Tattoo Nazi Lady stuff here for two reasons: 1. It doesn’t really have anything to do with sports, and this is, after all, a sports blog; and 2. I’m already at maximum capacity for cheatin’ husband sagas with this Tiger Woods mess. But here’s…

  8. MMA fighter War Machine arrested in a most unflattering way

    Mar 31, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    If history has taught us anything, it’s that anyone whose legal name is War Machine should be watched very closely. His name used to by Jon Koppenhaver, but then he was cast in the Spike TV reality show The Ultimate Fighter, started an MMA career, and had his name changed to War Machine (when pro…

  9. Elin Nordegren is pregnant? The plot thickens …

    Mar 31, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Has it really been only four months since Tiger Woods assaulted an innocent fire hydrant and tree with his Cadillac Escalade? That was the night, allegedly, that Elin Nordegren first found out about her husband’s fling with Rachel Uchitel, and then proceeded to ventilate his car with a five-iron. As you may recall, the National…

  10. Experts tout fifth-grader as next coming of Teen Wolf

    Mar 31, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Some folks are going slightly crazy over the basketball skills of Chicago 10-year-old Jaylin Fleming, whose profile today in the Chicago Tribune has various experts calling him, among other things, the best fifth grade basketball player in the nation. Yeah, that’s crazy; pinning down a fact like that is roughly equivalent to herding mice. But…

    Despite the NFL Network making a big play for his services, Chris Berman has decided to re-enlist with ESPN. So the World Wide Leader will not be without leather, and that’s a good thing. Some things just go together, like Tiger Woods and Nike, Ari Gold and Lloyd, your NCAA tourney bracket and bitter regret.…

  12. PETA has a proposal for bleacher-poor Chicago high school

    Mar 30, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The problem: Someone is stealing the bleachers from the football field at Chicago’s Orr High School. Yep, as incredible as it sounds, a thief has been showing up in the middle of the night and dismantling the seating panels and connecting supports and hauling ‘em away, possibly to be sold as scrap metal. And seeing…

  13. Tuesday Blogdome: 'Joe Buck Live' officially pronounced dead

    ‘Joe Buck Live’ Officially Canceled: Don’t Get Me Started, Don’t Even Get Me Started. HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg confirmed Monday in an e-mail to Broadcast & Cable (now that’s a reputable periodical right there) what Joe Buck smugly speculated to last week: that after three painful episodes, Joe Buck Live has been officially and…

  14. Stabbing death of FIU running back was over thrown cookies

    Mar 30, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    The term “senseless murder” is thrown around a lot these days, and I suppose in the great scheme of things they’re all senseless. But it’s hard to wrap my mind around this one: The altercation that led to the stabbing death of Florida International running back Kendall Berry on Thursday seemed to be ignited by…

  15. In which the Screaming Gambler Video reaches viral status

    This happened almost two weeks ago, but sometimes it takes things awhile to get here from Britain. The horserace was the Cheltenham Gold Cup, where Imperial Commander was the winner over favorites Kauto Star and Denman. The BBC was covering the action in a pub, for some reason, where we pick up the action following…

  16. Tiger Woods Augusta temptations: Joslyn James, Hooters girls

    Mar 30, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Poor Tiger Woods; this is no way to treat a guy who is going through sex rehab. He’s trying to golf for the first time in months, and they’re throwing porn stars and Hooters girls in his face. On Monday we brought you the news that alleged Tiger mistress and confirmed porn star Joslyn James…

  17. Michelle 'Bombshell' McGee … high school cheerleader?

    Mar 30, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    We’re about two weeks into this Jesse James/Sandra Bullock infidelity story, and so far no one has made the obvious comparison: Michelle “Bombshell” McGee was obviously influenced by Patty Bernstein, the trick-riding biker chick from the Steve Martin movie The Jerk. OK, now that I’ve got that off my chest, this bit of news. Radar…

  18. All-white basketball league gets a visit from The Daily Show

    Mar 30, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    The man on the left here is Don “Moose” Lewis, founder and head wingnut of something called the All American Basketball Alliance; a (so far entirely mythical) pro basketball league for white people only. We’ve written about this extensively here, but you’ve never really been lampooned properly until you’ve been lampooned on The Daily Show…

  19. Morning Tweet: Wiping away Kentucky's tears of regret

    Mar 30, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Ha … awesome. As The Last Angry Fan points out, this guy gets to drive in the carpool lane throughout the state of Kentucky. In West Virginia, not so much. Your bonus for today is that this link not only shows a still photo of the John Wall rear window wiper, but also a video…

  20. Elite Eight Leftovers: Starring Ashley Judd as Medusa

    According to this movie which is coming out on Friday, staring directly into the eyes of Ashley Judd will turn you to stone. Apparently Kentucky players did just that, which explains their shooting touch from 3-point range against West Virginia. John Calipari did not release the Kraken, and thus will not be playing for an…
