  1. The Tiger Woods mistress beauty pageant is a go

    Feb 25, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Howard Stern, fresh from the success of that ESPN/Brian Westbrook prank, got some more good news on Wednesday. He has now secured four alleged Tiger Woods mistresses who have signed on to participate in a Tiger Woods lovers beauty pageant. Stern had announced plans to stage such an event several weeks ago, but also said…

  2. Morning Tweet: Frenchy Cat 1, Lance Armstrong 0

    I can see what’s going on here even if Lance Armstrong can’t. Obviously that cat was sent by the French. I can see LeBeau from Hogan’s Heroes hiding in the bushes, releasing the kitty onto the road at just the right moment. Fortunately a photographer was there and was able to get this photo of…

    Olympics: Puckheads Rejoice Canada 8, Germany 2. Canada’s men’s hockey team swiftly took apart Germany last night, 8-2, much to the delight of their rabid, well dressed, gold-expectant fans. For the record, puckhead is impressive, but thus far, siren-guy trumps all. [The Big Lead] More fun stuff following the jump.

  4. John Feinstein on Tiger apology: 'He was standing there scared to death'

    Feb 24, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    John Feinstein has never been a Tiger Woods apologist, and yes, I realize that’s an understatement. Curious how the journalist who embedded himself with Bobby Knight and the Indiana Hoosiers for Season on the Brink never was able to break through Tiger’s personal defenses, even though he’s tried. “It’s not that I don’t like Tiger,”…

  5. Winter Olympics setback: Swiss destroy U.S. in fondue pong

    With all apologies to Bob Costas and Al Michaels, no one is doing a better job covering the Vancouver Games than Stephen Colbert (even though he’s no longer even in Vancouver). Case in point: He visited several national house cultural venues in the Olympic Village for The Colbert Report, resulting in one of the most…

  6. Tiger has no hand; cannot get Elin to sit for family portrait

    Feb 24, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    If Radar Online can be believed — and this sounds like a really random thing to make up — Elin Nordegren refused Tiger Woods’ request to sit for a family portrait on the day before his televised Pressless Conference on Friday. A photo portrait? Oil painting? Carnival caricature drawing? The story is not clear. But…

  7. John Daly wants you in his underwear; has Tiger Woods prediction

    Feb 24, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Your dream of wearing John Daly’s underwear is closer to reality today, as Our Hero announced via Twitter that you can win a week’s worth of The Closer brand briefs in a special sweepstakes from Slix on Facebook. They’re not Daly’s underwear exactly — although I wouldn’t put it past him (less laundry to wash)…

  8. Japadog takes Winter Olympics by storm, will listen to your recycling demands

    Comments Off

    Vancouver has taken its share of grief during the Winter Games, which is why Japadog is more important than ever right now. A fusion of international cooperation in the shape of a wiener and bun, this unique Vancouver delicacy has people lining up in unprecedented numbers at its three stand locations on and around Robson…

  9. Morning Tweet: Interview with a chair

    Feb 24, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Hard to believe that it’s been 25 years since the U.S. launched its first plastic chair into orbit, a feat that has not been equaled to this day (take that, Russia). Wednesday was the 25th anniversary of Bobby Knight’s infamous 1985 chair-flinging incident, a Shot Heard ‘Round the World during Indiana’s game against Purdue. Funny…

  10. Royals ditch mascot in wake of shocking wiener assault

    Feb 23, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    As any good attorney will tell you, it’s always problematic to sue a sports mascot. You think you have your case in the bag, and then all of a sudden he takes the stand; his lovable antics winning over both judge and jury. But John Coomer isn’t afraid, and he’s taking the Kansas City Royals’…

  11. Topless German sledding: Take that, Winter Olympics

    Feb 23, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Usually when I see a headline that reads “Naked sled race draws 14,000,” it makes me happy for the rest of the afternoon. But it always pays to read the entire story. Near the end of the account on the German news site The Local: “We had a lot of luck with the weather,” said…

  12. French broadcasters: Johnny Weir should take gender test

    Feb 23, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    So it’s open season on Johnny Weir in Vancouver, I guess: Step right up and take your homophobic shots. First it was Australia making with the gay jokes, and now it’s France … France!, lashing out. Actually, the two broadcasters who made with the latest gay snickerfest about Weir are French-speaking Canadians, who have no…

  14. The Undertaker is quite flammable, as it turns out (with video)

    Feb 23, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    At some point everyone experiences the sensation of being on fire. I call it a person’s Pepsi Moment, named after the infamous incident in which Michael Jackson’s hair caught on fire while filming a Pepsi commercial. Admit it; at some point in your life, small portions of you have been aflame. My Pepsi moment came…

  15. Adultery web site CEO grades the Tiger Woods press conference

    Feb 23, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    To make a long story short, I wanted to get a unique perspective on the Tiger Woods situation, as far from the usual give and take as possible. Luckily Noel Biderman was available. Mr. Biderman, a former sports attorney, is the CEO of AshleyMadison.com. You may recognize that name as the personals web site that…

  16. Dan Jenkins: 'Tiger Woods is graveyard dead'

    Feb 23, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Whether or not you agree with Dan Jenkins’ recent take on Tiger Woods, it’s one of those situations where you just have to get down on your knees and give the “We’re not worthy” bow to the words themselves. Jenkins, IMO, is every much a technician at the word processor as Woods is on the…

  17. Col. Reb cries: Ole Miss votes on new mascot today

    Today is election day at the University of Mississippi, as students go to the polls to decide if the school gets a new on-field, costumed sports mascot. The old mascot, Colonel Reb (RIP), was humanely destroyed in 2003 after it was determined that this was the 21st, and not the 19th, century. (A move that…

  18. Morning Tweet: Tiger Woods is Michael Jackson (hoo hoo!)

    Feb 23, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    It’s true; I unfollowed Jason Whitlock a while back because he finally went over the line with one of his outrageous opinions. It was his extended Twitter debate over which HBO TV series was better; The Wire or The Sopranos. While I have no real opinion on that, I do bristle at the fact that…

      * Trinity’s Baset Chaudry Subject Of ESPN Story. “What happened [Sunday], I just didn’t see coming. The dots didn’t connect. It was just an abborent moment of loss of composure. I just didn’t see any way that that would happen and when it was on top of us, we were just in the middle…

  20. Monday Blogdome: Writer shoots down Wilt Chamberlain's '20,000 women' claim

    Feb 22, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    So Wilt Chamberlain didn’t have sex with 20,000 women? Is there nothing to believe in any more? Well, there’s one thing: Little person strippers (that happens after the jump). Come on in, the blogdome’s fine. The Lakers Sex Talk Needs A Bit Of Context. Some of his associates doubted his claims. Doug Krikorian: “Complete hyperbole.…
