  1. Mike Leach admonishes 'God Squad' players in locker room video

    Mar 12, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Mike Leach, possibly the only coach ever fired for placing a player in a shed, is scheduled to give a deposition today in Lubbock as part of his wrongful termination lawsuit against Texas Tech, stemming from his firing in Dec. of last year. In honor of that, I suppose, Orange Bloods has found a couple…

  2. Morning Tweet: We're talkin' softball …

    Mar 12, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Yep, that is a bit jarring: It was during Ken Griffey Jr.’s first go-round with the Mariners, and he talks about it over at Big League Stew. Ah, those were the days; when the only performance enhancing drugs were tonics supplied by Mr. Burns, and gave you gigantism. Fun fact: the episode, Homer at Bat,…

    We take you now to Jose Antonio Huelga Stadium in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba., where a Cuban Baseball League game goes extremely haywire. Lisban Correa, a catcher for Inudstriales, a team based in Havana, is hit by a pitch, and proceeds to chase the pitcher into the outfield, swinging the bat the entire way. Notice the…

    If they make a law tomorrow in which there can be only one sports blog, I pray that they choose Name of the Year. Get your popcorn ready, it’s almost here! *** Who Will Be the Next Mingo? So we’ll do the painful job that we are charged with doing: whittling the field down to…

  5. This Oregon football Craigslist ad was inevitable, I suppose

    Mar 11, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    This ad in the University of Oregon section of Portland’s Craigslist didn’t last very long before being flagged for … what, awesomeness? Anyway, quite a few people archived it, including the intrepid Adam Jacobi of Buster Sports (larger version following the jump). Among the job-specific duttes requested are: Keeping University of Oregon football players from…

  6. The Pontiac Silverdome is open for business again!

    Comments Off

    I’ve always wondered why they never threw a dynamite party to blow up the Pontiac Silverdome … I guess you can’t do that to a buildling that once played host to the Pope. Or Joe Montana in a Super Bowl (same thing). But now comes good news: The Silverdome is again open for business! Plenty…

  7. Why your NCAA Tournament office pool is the root of evil

    Mar 11, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Selection Sunday approaches, which means that the guy in charge of your NCAA basketball tournament office pool has commandeered the copy machine and declared that area of the building off limits until April 5th (he’s got a staple gun; don’t test him). Soon across this nation brackets will be Xeroxed at the rate of 150…

  8. The unholy marriage of Marion Jones and the WNBA

    Mar 11, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    In which Marion Jones is signed by the WNBA Tulsa Shock, causing our Jelisa Castrodale to uncharacteristically throw her laptop down the stairs. So if there are typos, it’s from the bouncing. Here’s your Thursday Jelisahol; a bit early this week! By Jelisa Castrodale Humans are inherently social creatures, with almost every day bringing a…

  9. Why Tiger's reported Ari Fleischer hire may not be a wise move

    Mar 11, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    For all of you who wagered that Tiger Woods would make his return to golf at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on March 25, please collect your winnings. At least that’s according to today’s New York Post, which is reporting that Tiger is plotting a return to golf at that event. Here’s one thing you probably…

  10. Morning Tweet: The most interesting hockey goal ever scored

    Mar 11, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Ah, but there was so much more. As Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog put it, Mike Green’s goal against the Hurricanes last night combined sheer child-like joy, comical ice-crash hijinks, weird fans, and a woman attempting to seduce her male companion on regional sports cable television. This is why we love sports, people. Also…

  11. Wednesday Blogdome: Your Wonderlic score may vary

    Mar 10, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Alleged Wonderlic Scores Leak, But Do They Matter? Gators QB Tim Tebow scored a 22 on his Wonderlic, Jimmy Clausen 23, Colt McCoy 25 and Sam Bradford 36 out of 50, per NFL source. I’m sure the immediate reaction goes something like this: “OMG! Tim Tebow is stupid!” Yes, if those scores are correct, he…

    My greatest fear is no longer global warming, or nuclear war. What frightens me most is that this video (following the jump) will be placed in a time capsule somewhere, and people will judge our society by what they find there. People of the future: Disregard this video! These were escaped mental patients who somehow…

  13. It's The Always Enjoyable Inflatable John Terry Mistress Doll

    Comments Off

    If Tiger Woods wants a small taste of what his return to golf will be like, take heed: Here are some Stoke City soccer fans having fun with philandering Chelsea forward John Terry during Sunday’s FA Cup quarterfinal match. But this should also be a heads up to all of those who would be heckling…

  14. Detroit Lion gets in pen with actual lion; death does not ensue

    Mar 10, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    In the most stirring example of a professional athlete meeting his animal mascot namesake since Sidney Crosby visited Antarctica, here’s Detroit’s Zack Follett paying a visit to Cat Haven in Fresno, CA (Follett, who played for Cal, is a native of nearby Clovis). In the video, the lion seems very interested in Follett’s helmet, then…

  15. Alleged Woods mistress: Tiger was 'better than Michael Jordan'

    Mar 10, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    She may have finished third in this morning’s Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant on Howard Stern’s Sirius Radio show, but alleged Tiger mistress Loredana Jolie Ferriolo had some of the most ratings-worthy things to say during Howard’s interrogation of the three contestants. As we noted earlier, Jamie Jungers was the winner of the “pageant,” and…

  16. Cameron Crazies break out the Amber Lamps

    Mar 10, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    OK, this sign makes me smile: Found at With Leather, the Cameron Crazies break out classic Internet meme signage during Duke’s beatdown of North Carolina last week. “Amber Lamps” is of course in reference to the Epic Beard Man, a 60-something Oakland resident who beat up a younger guy on a transit bus after the…

  17. Funny: Sarah McLachlan MLB free agent parody

    Mar 10, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    You know the Sarah MacLachlan PSA for abused and neglected doggies (which I can’t watch without shamelessly weeping into my Scooby Doo throw pillow). Now it’s a rather humorous PSA parody, featuring several of your favorite MLB free agents. Please, won’t you help today? From 12 Angry Mascots: I can’t stand the thought of it……

    Mar 10, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    The Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant over at the Howard Stern Show just ended, and apparently Howard left no rock unturned in his relentless questioning of the three participants. Among the info gleaned on the Sirius Radio broadcast: Tiger once asked Jamie Jungers if she would participate in a threesome, and Jungers said she would…

  19. Morning Tweet: A slow clap for Lucas

    Mar 10, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Indeed. It was hard to watch the St. Louis Rams the past couple of seasons without thinking of the film Lucas; specifically the scene in which Haim is finally allowed into the game and gets absolutely blasted during a kickoff return. Taking off your helmet so you can better see the ball is always a…

    The two delightful cartoon characters you see on this billboard are named Dickie and Fanny, stars of South Africa’s big World Cup safe sex campaign. All they need is a Vince Guaraldi soundtrack and you’d have your next great animated Christmas special. Britain is all with the program, having just donated a million pounds to…
