  1. Monday Blogdome: Dwyane Wade kind of sucks at tennis

    Mar 29, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Dwyane Wade, Andy Roddick Horse Around on a Tennis Court. It is fun to see athletes out of their comfort zones, and the Dwyane Wade-Andy Roddick matches in tennis and H.O.R.S.E. from Saturday took at least one guy out of his. Roddick actually looks good with the ball in his hands, swishing a three and…

  2. Nightmare fuel for unmarried pitchers

    Mar 29, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    This is a metaphor for something, but I’m not sure what. Wait, I know; she wants to catch a husband. Either that or her team is playing the Lehigh Valley Ironpigs. According to UniWatch Blog, this is Japanese model Sayaka Isoyama, who participated in the ceremonial first pitch before the Chiba Lotte Marines game on…

  3. Looking at the 'perfect bracket' kid's picks, one week later

    Mar 29, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    So we all remember Alex Hermann, the autistic Chicago-area teen whose family claimed that he had a perfect bracket through the first two rounds if the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. When his story first appeared in an NBC Chicago article last week, cries of shenanigans immediately sprung up, mostly in our comments section. Alex proved…

  4. When Tiger tees off at Masters, Joslyn James will be stripping two hours away

    Mar 29, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    While Tiger Woods and his legion of fans/detractors/curious onlookers descend on Augusta for the Masters next week, his alleged porn star girlfriend, Joslyn James, will also be making an appearance in Georgia. In info rooted out by SportsbyBrooks, we learn that James will be stripping her little heart out at a club in Atlanta called…

  5. Doofus in blue wig not sure why people hate Duke

    Mar 29, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Why all the Duke hate? You may as well ask the meaning of life itself; it’s one of the Great Conundrums of the universe, along with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream being labeled as containing “three servings.” But as to the first issue, members of the Rumors & Rants team traveled to…

  6. Martha Burk: Tiger at the Masters is 'part of a fundamental misogyny'

    Mar 29, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    In his piece on March 17 about how Tiger Woods’ return to the Masters is a cheap shot at women, New York Daily News sports columnist Filip Bondy was missing an important ingredient: Martha Burk. She’s the one, of course, who spearheaded the big protest at Augusta National in 2003, decrying the club’s policy of…

  7. Fencing for the blind? I see no way this can end badly

    Mar 29, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    All I can say is that it’s about time the blind started fencing. It’s the next-to-last last thing I need to cross off on my list of unlikely happenings; now all I need is to see a goat drive a taxi. My life will then be complete. Boston-area instructor Cesar Morales is organizing the first-ever…

  8. Morning Tweet: Russian billionaires, the New Jersey Nets and you

    Mar 29, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Yes, I’d have to agree; followed closely by the jet ski backflip footage. But while Sunday night’s 60 Minutes piece on Russian billionaire and pending New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov made for interesting TV, was it substantial TV? Some say no. Norman Oder of Atlantic Yards Report says that the 60 Minutes interview was…

  9. Stubby Clapp's Video Vault: There's nothing minor about this meltdown

    Mar 28, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Jim Playfair takes “losing it” to a new level. Playfair, head coach of the AHL’s Abbotsford Heat, appears to have just a little issue with the way in which the refs are calling the game, to put it mildly. The guy is a stick-smashing, jacket-shedding stark-raving lunatic. And I think the world is a better…

  10. Well, look at that: Urban Meyer has the capacity to apologize

    Mar 28, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    It takes a real big man to admit when he’s wrong, especially when said wrongdoing has now been seen nearly half a million times on YouTube. You could say video evidence provides a compelling motivational factor to issuing a mea culpa. In the interest of fairness, especially after my post yesterday regarding the Urban Meyer-Jeremy…

  11. Paul Pierce stinks at NCAA tournament prognosticating

    Mar 28, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    If you thought your bracket in the NCAA tournament was screwed, cheer up – it can’t be any worse than the sorry state of Paul Pierce’s. Granted, the guy has made about a kajillion more dollars than you during his twelve-year career with the Boston Celtics, but at least you can take solace in the…

  12. TMZ snags video of Tiger Woods practicing

    Mar 27, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Leave it to the intrepid reporters/stalkers of TMZ to somehow manage to get some video of Tiger Woods practicing. The footage is reportedly from a practice session on the range at Islesworth Country Club in Windermere, Florida. Is this exciting or what? I bet you cannot wait to click on through and check it out.…

  13. Man, I cannot believe I didn't win a Favre Dollar Footlongs t-shirt

    Mar 27, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    After Rick directed our attention to the Tiger Woods Mistress Slots game over at Favre Dollar Footlongs (love the name, by the way) on Tuesday, I have to admit I was instantly hooked. As a degenerate gambler obsessed with the sex lives of famous people, I couldn’t get enough of spinning the wheels and watching…

  14. San Diego Padres closer Heath Bell is one far out dude

    Mar 27, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Closers, by nature, are eccentric fellows. Heck, all pitchers tend to be superstitious, compulsive creatures that their teammates tolerate more than understand. Still, it requires a special breed of pitcher to enter a tight matchup in the 9th inning, somehow work themselves into the flow of the game, rear back, preserve the lead and shut…

  15. Shocking: Florida players support Urban Meyers' immaturity

    Mar 27, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t read it with my own eyes: several players for the Florida Gators, who have undoubtedly been conditioned from the second they arrived on campus to believe that their beloved coach should not only be revered, but worshiped like a god, amazingly chose to take his side in…

  16. Cinderella? More like Britny Fox, amirite?

    Mar 27, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Yeah, no one gets that headline, do they? More on that later. In any event, No. 10 seed St. Mary’s magical run through the NCAA tournament came to an abrupt, punched-in-the-man-parts ending last night courtesy of a 72-49 butt-whooping at the hands of No. 3 seed Baylor. And despite the 28 point scoring differential, it…

  17. Omar Samhan to Taylor Swift: Call me, babe

    Mar 26, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    St. Mary’s Sweet-16 game with Baylor is about five minutes in as a write this, and the Gaels are down 10, so I’d better get this out of the way. St. Mary’s 6-foot-11 center, Omar Samhan, may not totally have his head in the game. Consider this quote from Wednesday’s media session, as reported by…

  18. Friday Blogdome: When Swedish hockey fans attack

    Mar 26, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Do not shush Swedish hockey fans. One fellow was so incensed that he broke through security and ransacked the Rogle bench, attacking one of the team managers. The reaction has reached full-on controversy in Sweden, where some are speculating that AIK could face punishment in the form of a huge fine or being forced to…

  19. Tim Tebow shows a lot more maturity than Urban Meyer

    Mar 26, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Palm Beach Post tracked down Tim Tebow at a Boy Scout function in which he was the keynote speaker — how perfect is that? — on Thursday, and took the opportunity to ask America’s Quarterback when he thought of former teammate Deonte Thompson’s comments about him. You know the ones, in which Thompson compared…
