  1. Streaking a dog show is wrong on so many levels

    Mar 15, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Well, if you’re going to streak a major dog show, it might as well be at the National Exhibition Centre. I’m just disappointed at this guy’s timing: running out before the cameras during judging for Gundog group. From the looks of things, shouldn’t he have chosen the toy group? Of course if he had run…

  2. World Cup 2010: Want some soccer with your drugs?

    First it was the vicious, rampaging baboon gangs. Then the company selling stab-proof vests with your favorite soccer team logo, and the Great Hooker Migration. Now, word is that gangs are stockpiling illegal drugs — mainly ecstasy — at such a rate that South African police can’t stay ahead of the problem. How could I…

  3. In which Arnold Palmer puts Ben Roethlisberger in his place

    Mar 15, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    The good folks at Waggle Room won me over quite some time ago: They run one of the best golf blogs — if not the best — on the Intrawebs. Case in point is this story shared therein by Ryan Ballengee. It involves Ben Roethlisberger, whom I am quickly learning to detest, and one of…

  4. The new threat: America's war on recess

    Mar 15, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    I believe that my elementary school still holds the record for largest game of Red Rover ever attempted during recess: 30 people on one team, all linking arms, as 30 from the other team all charged into them at full speed. It had been the first time in recorded history that an entire class of…

  5. Morning Tweet: March Madness 2010 … release the kraken!

    Mar 15, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Sadly, this year’s NCAA Div. I Men’s Tournament field does not figure to be as formidable as the monster of Greek myth. Our defending champion, North Carolina, isn’t even there; preferring to grace the NIT with its 16-16 record, along with UConn, Illinois, Arizona State and Mississippi State. But what does it say of the…

  6. Stubby Clapp's Video Vault: Agassi and Sampras? Not friendly

    Mar 14, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Can’t we all just get along? At least for charity? Appearing in a charity match for “Hits for Haiti,” Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi bring down the maturity and ratchet up the rivalry when they go toe-to-toe with snide comments about one another. It appears to begin all in good fun with some semi-sarcastic remarks…

  7. Maria Sharapova is dating a Los Angeles Laker?

    Mar 14, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Never in my life have I felt so betrayed, so hurt. So there I was, going through my feeds last night and a headline from a post on The Fabulous Forum left me feeling like I just got punched in the gut: “Maria Sharapova getting support from her Laker boyfriend.” How can this be? And…

  8. Stephen A. Smith is a courageous journalist

    Mar 14, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    EVERYTHING HE WRITES (about himself) IS IMPORTANT! Stephen A. Smith has gone on the defensive in response to the controversy resulting from a column he wrote earlier this week lambasting Allen Iverson for his alleged gambling and drinking problems. In a column published today in The Philadelphia Inquirer, “The backlash from the Iverson report,” Smith…

  9. Zambonis are not amphibious vehicles

    Maybe they should have heeded the warning of the “Caution! Thin Ice” sign. While attempting to resurface the ice on “North America’s largest groomed skating pond” Tuesday night, a Zamboni at Keystone Resort in Colorado broke through the ice, plunging the machine into the icy waters (video after the jump). Thankfully, nobody was hurt, but…

  10. Probably not the best idea to make a steroids joke to a player who has been suspended for steroids

    Mar 13, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Especially when you are trying to get the guy’s autograph. Yeah. Philadelphia Phillies reliever J.C. Romero is being sued by a fan who alleges that Romero struck him after a game at Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay last summer. Robert Eaton, 25, is believed to be seeking $15,000 in damages in connection with the alleged…

  11. The Green Bay Packers honor tradition, ginormous yellow circles with new 'throwback' jersey

    Mar 13, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    On Friday, the Green Bay Packers unveiled their alternate third jersey for the 2010 season at the team’s Fan Fest event. The jersey is a “re-creation” of the 1929 Packers jersey, the year the franchise won its first NFL Championship. Purists will likely call foul on the jersey since it bears only a passing resemblance…

  12. For $25 (for parking), you can watch Texas Stadium get all 'blowed up' in person

    If you happen to find yourself in Irving, Texas on the morning of April 11th and have nothing else to do, you too can bear witness to what is sure to be the awe-inspiring implosion of Texas Stadium. Sure, it will cost you the nominal fee of twenty-five smackeroos to park your ride in the…

  13. Morning Tweet: $1,000 for a Tiger Woods autograph on a Hooters menu? What a deal!

    Mar 13, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Courtesy of a tweet by my colleague Darren Rovell (I call him D-Rov, we got a good vibe) comes news that a person bid – and ultimately came out victorious – in an eBay auction for the autograph of Tiger Woods on a menu from Hooters. The winning bid? One thousand and eighty big ones.…

  14. Ian Poultier fans are tangled up in plaid

    Mar 13, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Gah! The plaid, the plaid! The rain may have dampened the mood at the CA Championships at Doral on Friday, but before the downpours rolled in, some spectators in attendance, evidently big fans of Ian Poultier, decided to mimic the golfer’s, um, unique attire and all dressed in plaid pants. Full-sized photo, in all its…

  15. If this isn't a metaphor for the 2010 New York Mets, I don't know what is

    Mar 12, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Settle down Mets fans, it’s a joke. So sensitive. Here’s Bryan Berg, who took 44 days to assemble 218,792 playing cars into a replica of the Venetian Macau, a luxury hotel in China. In so doing the American architect broke his own Guinness World Record for largest house of free-standing playing cards (no glue or…

  16. Friday Blogdome: Otto should be watched closely around cheerleaders

    The Syracuse mascot is a bit of a pervert. The Syracuse basketball team not only lost to Georgetown in the Big East Finals yesterday but they may have also lost their starting center. Arinze Onuaku, an important piece of Syracuse’s run to #1 this year went down late in the game clutching his right knee.…

    A sad day in Britain — and indeed, the world — as it was announced that the annual Coopers Hill Cheese Rolling races in Brockworth, Gloucester have been canceled. That ends an at least 200-year-old tradition of humans haphazardly hurtling down a steep hill in pursuit of a rolling cheese; indeed, some claim the event…

  18. Former Jazz center busted for stashing marijuana in his butt

    Mar 12, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Former Utah Jazz center Robert Whaley’s desperate run from the law finally ended on Thursday, his life of crime coming to a close the way that most of them do: By being caught with marijuana wedged into his butt cheeks. At least it wasn’t crack. That would have been too ironic. From the Salt Lake…

  19. And now the Always Enjoyable Inflatable Tiger Woods Sex Doll

    Mar 12, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Tiger Woods’ attorneys are leaping out of their bunks and scrambling toward their fighter jets as we speak, and all one needs to do is to look at the fine product to the right to see why. Will the Woods litigation team be able to sue this company back to the stone age? Or will…

  20. Kid who beat up his HS baseball coach still has football scholarship to Utah

    Mar 12, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Redlands East Valley High School quarterback Tyler Shreve will have an interesting bio section in the University of Utah press guide next season, should he make the team. His “personal” paragraph might read something like this: “After being told that he was being kicked off the baseball team for being disrespectful to his coaches, responded…
