  1. Videos of uncommon flexibility: Here are the Ross Sisters

    Mar 9, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    A note on the video below: It’s from the 1944 movie Broadway Rhythm. The Ross Sisters are natives of Roscoe, Texas, and why they never became gymnasts is beyond me. As the headline says, be sure to check out the last minute. Yikes. *** Watch This Entire Video. The Ross Sisters would have been America’s…

  2. Tuesday Blogdome: Brooke fires back at Agassi

    Mar 9, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Brooke Shields: Other side to life with Andre Agassi. Agassi wrote that he became incensed when he was on the set of “Friends” the day Shields — in a guest-starring role in which she stalks Matt LeBlanc’s character, Joey — was required to lick LeBlanc’s hand. In Agassi’s account, he said he rushed back to…

  3. PETA responds to KFC's 'Get a Grip' golf promotion, and it's kind of our fault

    Mar 9, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Not everyone is thrilled with Kentucky Fried Chicken’s new “Get a Grip” KFC-branded sports equipment promotion, in which golfer J.B. Holmes is pictured on the company’s web site using a new KFC handle on his golf club, as we posted earlier today. Because they have a special poultry hot line phone in their main headquarters…

  4. Ochocinco goes off on ESPN's Colin Cowherd via Twitter (with update)

    Mar 9, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Quite a commotion over at Chad Ochocinco’s Twitter page right now, as the Bengals’ receiver is delivering a series of broadsides at ESPN radio guy Colin Cowherd, which are both fun and informative. First, who knew that NFL players listen to Colin Cowherd? Second, it’s kind of refreshing to see something on Ocho’s Twitter page…

  5. Texas kid wins at life, so gets to blow up an entire stadium

    Mar 9, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    I’ll admit it: It’s always been one of my greatest ambitions to blow up Texas Stadium. But that has more to do with me being a 49ers fan than anything else. One Texas kid, however, had a much more altruistic agenda in mind when he expressed his desire to do the same thing. Casey Rogers,…

  7. Tiger and Elin spotted kissing? Mother of God …

    Mar 9, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Not sure which of the 12 steps this is supposed to be, but Radar Online is saying today that Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren were seen “kissing and hugging” in their Orlando neighborhood on Monday. I never really had a dog in this hunt up until now, but I’m going to have to say that…

  8. Nobody expects the Italian Soccer Inquisition!

    Mar 9, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Mark it down: Domenico Di Carlo becomes the first person ejected in European soccer competition for transgressing the new Serie A rule on blasphemy. Yep, the top Italian soccer division decrees that taking the Lord’s name in vain during a match, or simply (one would assume) saying “Jesus Christ!” draws that person a special papal…

  9. Morning Tweet: Gael force winds of change

    Mar 9, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    It didn’t take long, however, for all of the drama to drain from this one: St. Mary’s 81, Gonzaga 62. Not only is it the Gaels’ first WCC Tournament title in 13 years, but breaks a six-game losing streak to the Zags, and an 0-9 streak against them in tournament play. And that’s how you…

  10. Tiger Woods had a very special 'friends and family plan'

    Mar 8, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    There aren’t a lot of quotes out there from professional golfers concerning Tiger Woods and his extracurricular activities with the ladies. But Mark Calcavecchia — who still claims to be Tiger’s pal, and he says he isn’t judging — looks back with a rather amusing quote in a recent interview with Golf.com. Best part: “I…

  12. 'Big Baby' Davis almost landed 'The Blind Side' role?

    Mar 8, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Which NBA player was reportedly among the finalists to play the Michael Oher role in Sandra Bullock’s Osacr winning vehicle The Blind Side? Would you believe Glen “Big Baby” Davis? Listening to Davis tell it, he just might have landed the role, had not a pesky little thing called the NBA season got in the…

    Well, a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder has been photographed at Michael Scott’s desk at Dunder Mifflin, so I can now officially say that I’ve seen everything. Well played, Nick Collison. Oh, and here’s Nick posing next to Dwight Shrute’s car. By the way, if you’re a fan of the British version of the…

  15. North Carolina bludgeoned by 'Curse of Brian King'

    Mar 8, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Our North Carolina men’s basketball standings so far: 5-11 in the ACC, 16-15 overall. Will most likely make the NCAA tourney, but probably as a No. 10 or 11 seed (laugh track). I know that’s hard to fathom, but then if you saw the Tar Heels vs. Duke on Sunday, you’d understand. Wow, was that…

  16. Jamaican dogsled team seeks Iditarod title, Snausages

    Mar 8, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    If you’re following the Iditarod, and I’m sure you are, then you know that Newton Marshall is currently in 23rd place as the event enters its third day. That’s significant because Marshall is the musher for the Jamaican dogsled team, which sounds totally made up by I assure you it’s real. Inspired by the Jamaican…

  17. Armed crooks storm televised poker tournament, ruin guy's only good hand of the night

    You’d think that with all the Oceans 11 sequels out there, crooks would come up with a more sophisticated plan than this to rob a poker tournament. A masked gang invaded the Grand Hyatt hotel in Berlin on Saturday, where a European Poker Tour event was being held, and made off with about $328,000 on…

  18. Morning Tweet: You always hurt the one you love

    Mar 8, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    I’m one of the few people I know who skips the Academy Awards telecast and actually attends a movie. Why watch a TV show about movies when you can see one? Finally saw Crazy Heart, which was good, but I liked it better the first time I saw it when it was called Tender Mercies.…

  19. Julius Peppers must want Chicagoans to like him

    Mar 7, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    There are few things people enjoy more than some free booze. Julius Peppers must realize that, because during a night out on the town Saturday, ponied up and purchased 25 bottles of Perrier Jouet Fleur de Champagne for the patrons at the Crescendo nightclub. At $350 a pop, the round the very generous Peppers bought…

  20. Oh no! Nick Saban got Auburn's name wrong!

    Mar 7, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Gah! I have seen a lot of public gaffes in my life, and I have to say that without a doubt, Alabama head coach Nick Saban referring to Auburn University as the University of Auburn is one of the most egregious displays of institutional arrogance I have ever witnessed and the misdeed will not only…
