  1. 40,000 hookers making their way to South Africa for World Cup

    Mar 7, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    As with any major sporting event (i.e. Super Bowl, Olympics, I.F.O.C.E. Nathan’s International July Fourth Hot Dog Eating Contest), once a city/country is named as host of an event, concerns immediately are raised over the likely invasion of prostitutes to the locale. South Africa is not any different. With the World Cup set to begin…

  2. Morning Tweet: they have the internet in Idaho now?

    Mar 7, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Alright, alright, before all you Idahoistanis get all up in a tizzy about the “internet in Idaho” joke, allow me to say that I am well aware that Idaho has had the internet for years now. Unfortunately for Idaho senior Kashif Watson, the internet, in particular Twitter, where he has been making some inflammatory comments…

    Mar 6, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    You should be dancing, yeah. You should be dancing, YEAH! No, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a Bee Gees reference, so bully to all of you naysayers. Here’s video of Marquette’s head basketball coach Buzz Williams getting down after his player, Darius Johnson-Odom, throws it down. Rock on with yo’ bad self, Buzz. [The…

  4. Dumbest. World. Record. Ever.

    Mar 6, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    It’s a bit of stretch, both in reaching for a reference as well as making-sensically (see? I am now making up words to justify the upcoming line), but I’m pretty confident it is safe to say that It’s Always Stupid in Clevelandelphia. That’s right. For some unknown reason, the geniuses running the Cleveland Cavaliers and…

  5. Well, if Don King says so, it must be true

    Mar 6, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    Only in America! For those of you out there who are still fancy yourselves fans of the sweet science, in particular the heavyweight division – there are still a few of you out there, right? – the news that Mike Tyson might return to the ring to face Evander Holyfield for the third time either…

  6. Tommy Morrison got busted for some marijuana? Boo this man!

    Mar 6, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    Tommy Morrison, the former WBO heavyweight champion who is better known for his acting career – co-starring with Sylvester Stallone in Rocky V – and his controversial decision to continue boxing after being diagnosed as HIV-positive in 1996, was arrested Thursday in the parking lot outside of a health club in Wichita, Kansas on suspicion…

  7. Giro d'Italia soon to be slightly more gay

    Mar 5, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    First of all, the contention that one in 10 pro cyclists is gay seems a bit low. I mean, come on … leaving the house with Spandex shorts and a map of the Alps? More like 80 percent. That’s why, probably, a left-wing party in Amsterdam is proposing that gay men replace the miniskirted women…

  8. Gun dealership denied as youth baseball sponsor because of, you know, the guns

    Mar 5, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If Chico’s Bail Bonds can sponsor a Little League team, I don’t see why a gun dealership can’t. But in Maplewood N.J., a chap named Matt Carmel — who is a licensed gun dealer — was turned down when he applied to be a sponsor for his son’s youth baseball team. So there will be…

  9. What? Tiger Woods is turning down endorsement deals now?

    Mar 5, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Oh, the Irony Police are going to want to investigate this: Tiger Woods, apparently not willing to tarnish his good name by having it connected to a sports betting site, has turned down a multimillion-dollar offer from Paddy Power, one of the world’s biggest wagering houses. The Irish bookmaker revealed today that Tiger’s representatives at…

  10. Friday blogdome: (World Cup) Suicide is painless

    Mar 5, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Blog items from around the world, and around he corner. I probably stole that line from somewhere. Here’s a video clip to get us started. U.S. Soccer: Red, White, Black And Blue. Alright U.S. Soccer, do us all a favor. Cancel the remaining friendlies leading up to the World Cup. Pull the entire roster from…

  11. The Erin Andrews 'Dancing With the Stars' photos are here

    Mar 5, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    This just in: Erin Andrews will be teamed with Maksim Chmerkovskiy for the new season of Dancing With The Stars, and don’t they make a lovely couple? The Sideline Princess and the Bad Boy of the Ballroom … how can they not win? Well, if the competition just consisted of a series of still photos,…

  12. Winter Olympics leftover: Closing ceremonies gets a special guest

    Mar 5, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    In case you’ve never seen a photo of a costumed seal being searched at the entrance of the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, here you go. I’m not sure what security was expecting this seal might be packin’ … except a message of tolerance and love for all, and a wish for Canadians to…

  13. Sacramento gets a UFL team … hooray? But it needs a name

    Mar 5, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    First, the sad news; The California Redwoods are no more. I shall miss you, Redwoods, even though I never saw you play. The UFL team, which played two games at AT&T Park and one in San Jose during the league’s inaugural season, have packed its kicking tees and head coach Denny Green into a large…

  14. Blog: Jaimee Grubbs was seeing UFC fighter at same time she was with Tiger Woods

    Mar 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Please Lord, I don;t ask for much. Just make sure that Jaimee Grubbs is one of the alleged Tiger Woods honeys to appear on the Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant to be presented by Howard Stern (March 10!). So many questions to ask this young lady. For instance, if you were so “hurt” when you…

  15. The porn star and the KU basketball tickets: The entire story unfolds

    Mar 5, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    So just how did porn star Samantha Ryan wind up with a courtside seat for the big Kansas-Kansas State game on Wednesday? We probably wouldn’t have known about it had she not tweeted all about the experience the next day, complete with pictures. And she used her porn name Twitter account, by the way. Not…

  16. Morning Tweet: Jose Canseco is abusing the Twitter privilege

    Mar 5, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Somebody hasn’t been getting enough attention lately … . I’m sure that Tiger Woods appreciates this recent Jose Canseco tweet, in which the aging former baseball star and fledgling MMA participant appears to be either A. drunk, B. jealous, C. goofy on PEDs. The real problem here is that he follows this tweet with this…

  17. Expanding the NCAA Tourney to 96 teams is a rotten idea

    Mar 4, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    As March Madness grows closer (you can tell by Bill Raftery’s gargling), so does the fierce debate over how many teams should be admitted to the NCAA Men’s Div. I tourney. Our own Jelisa Catsrodale takes a look at a proposal which may make the NCAA bracket look like that Ladders commercial. Please give her…

  18. Kansas hoops coach gave floor seat tickets to porn star

    Mar 4, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    I’d be willing to bet that Samantha Ryan was the only person courtside at the Kansas-Kansas State game on Wednesday who has appeared in the movie Butt Pirates of the Caribbean. Well, I’m reasonably sure. Ms. Ryan, a porn star of some renown, was tweeting all about it today … the “coach T” she refers…

  19. Thursday blogdome: Tiger to play at Bay Hill?

    Mar 4, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Tiger To Bay Hill: From Questionable To Probable. Major development today in the Tiger Woods golf comeback drama: PGA Tour player Steve Stricker committed today to the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Stricker, who hasn’t played the tournament since 2005, is a longtime friend and teammate of Woods. One month before Woods’ Thanksgiving car…

  20. Could Brittney Griner's Punch-Out have been avoided?

    Mar 4, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    Now entering the Elizabeth Lambert wing of the College Women’s Sports Hall of Fame, please welcome Baylor’s Brittney Griner, who got a quite punchy with Texas Tech’s Jordan Barncastle on Wednesday during Baylor’s 69-60 win. Griner’s future with the Bears is uncertain; coach Kim Mulkey saying that the school will handle the situation internally (not…
