  1. Tiger Woods the TV series, starring Bo Duke. Oh Lordy

    Feb 19, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    If there’s one thing that the world needs right now, with Lost going off the air and everything, it’s a TV series based on Tiger Woods. And could John Schneider from The Dukes of Hazzard be the star, please? Actually, Back Nine, a pilot that’s been optioned by cable network Spike TV, isn’t about Woods…

  2. Twittersphere reacts to Tiger Woods press apology

    Feb 19, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    So the big Tiger Woods press statement is history; the event’s television broadcast waves at this moment traveling through the ionosphere and headed into deep space. I wonder what, 200 years from now, races from other planets will think when the speech reaches them? Why did the camera cut out at the nine-minute mark, they’ll…

  3. Stephen Colbert's deli-style Winter Olympics coverage

    Feb 19, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    If I have to get trapped in an Olympic venue due to a heavy snowstorm, it might as well be with Stephen Colbert. The Comedy Central host is nothing if not resourceful, as long as there is a fresh supply of turkey and Swiss on hand. The tastiest sandwiches are always made with athletic footwear,…

  4. Elin refusing to attend Tiger press event, says web site

    Feb 19, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Man, I almost forgot that this is Tiger Woods Press Statement Day. The confusion lies in the fact that with our family, we open our presents on Tiger Woods Press Statement Eve, and the next day we all tend to sleep in. But for most of the world, the unwrapping comes just one hour from…

  5. Morning Tweet: Benny the Bull is a super freak, super freak

    Feb 19, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    One of the best parts of the NBA All-Star Game to me was when Benny The Bull reeled off the Single Ladies Dance in front of P Diddy and Jay-Z during a break in the action. It was practically a mascot lap dance, and the rappers look totally unamused (late-breaking video here). But hey, that’s…

  6. Presenting the legend of Epic Beard Man

    Feb 18, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Warning: NSFW language. One thing about the San Francisco Bay Area; we’re never short on insane, legendary characters. The older guy in the video above is already known as Epic Beard Man, his story racing across the Internets after a recent incident on an Oakland transit bus in which he beat up a younger black…

  7. Figure skating, like life, is all about impressing the French judge

    Feb 18, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Watching figure skaters screw up is a big reason we all watch the Winter Olympics. Hey, it’s a very slippery surface; accidents are bound to happen. But for our own Jelisa Castrodale, those ice dancing mishaps hold a special, personal meaning. Let her explain, won’t you? *** By Jelisa Castrodale Like a lot of you,…

  8. Things you can't unsee: T.O. works the catwalk

    Feb 18, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    What’s going on here? Why has God forsaken us? The end-times are nigh! Oh wait, it’s just Terrell Owens making his New York Fashion Week debut. Global Grind describes what you see here more completely than I ever could: TERRELL OWENS made his modeling debut at Fashion Week 2010 for Muse. Now let me just…

  9. Vancouver brings in 100,000 condoms for Olympic Village (may not be enough)

    Feb 18, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    According to a piece today by MSNBC columnist Mike Celzic, the Olympic Village at the Winter Games is one big rabbit hutch, where everyone is flirting with everyone else and naughty shenanigans are occurring every minute. That’s why, according to this Today Show report, Vancouver organizers have had 100,000 condoms airlifted to Vancouver for the…

  10. ESPN app thinks Utah Jazz are playing Norway

    Feb 18, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    A guy calling himself GrizzlyBlair was so perplexed by this that he just had to send out a Twitpic. “According to my ESPN app, the Utah Jazz are playing Norway tonight.” So who are we to argue? As you can see, those Norwegians are hanging in tough. Defend the 3-point line, Johannes!

  11. Text of Tiger Woods' statement leaked? (With update)

    Feb 18, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Of course if Tiger Woods’ media statement is going to be leaked, it might as well end up in the hands of a country & western radio station in Asheville, NC. WKSF FM 99.9 has what it says is the text of Woods’ message to the troops, scheduled in less than 24 hours from PGA…

  12. The Tiger Woods Mardi Gras float was spectacular

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    I wasn’t there, but my guess is that more boobs were displayed beside this float than at any other at Mardi Gras. “Captain, we’re running out of beads!” No matter what you think of Tiger Woods and his infidelity saga, you really have to admire the fine workmanship here. Notice the “He Skanked It” banner,…

  13. Ernie Els blasts Tiger Woods as 'selfish'

    Feb 18, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    So why is Tiger Woods making Friday’s big press statement (don’t call it a press conference!) right in the middle of the Accenture Match Play Championship? Ernie Els, for one, is not amused. “It’s selfish,” Els told a reporter from American magazine Golf Week. “You can write that. I feel sorry for the sponsor. Mondays…

  14. Morning Tweet: The goggles, they do nothing!

    So here’s the twitpic that Mr. Hegarty is linking to. Oh my. Kind of an Irish version of Tron? That’s PJ Barron, who is competing in cross country skiing; one of six Irish athletes at the Winter Games (not counting Merry and Pippin, who are still on their way aboard Treebeard). Fun fact: Jamaica qualified…

  15. Know your women's hockey teams: The Edmonton Swastikas

    Feb 17, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Because women’s hockey is getting into full swing at the Olympiques d’hiver, (Canada and the U.S. have won their seven matches by a combined score of 77-4, if you haven’t been watching), I thought I’d show you this: A photo circa 1916 (or thereabouts) of the Edmonton Swastikas. I first saw this over at Puck…

  16. Wednesday Blogdome: Padres make the beer cheaper, but the emotional toll is still the same

    Feb 17, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Time for Blogdome, where blog items from around the globe jostle for position and vie for your affections. Today, Padres slash beer prices, and Jim Boeheim wants 96 teams. Let’s roll. Padres Slash Beer Prices, Expectations For 2010. At some point this season, the San Diego Padres will most likely trade Adrian Gonzalez (2009’s team…

  17. Tiger Woods workout photos; he looks a little chunky, eh?

    Feb 17, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Well, at least we have an idea of what Tiger was doing while in self-imposed seclusion: Watching a lot of daytime TV while wolfing down chips and Lunchables. Sam Greenwood of Getty Images got some (posed?) photos of Woods out jogging near his home in Orlando earlier today, just after the announcement that Woods will…

  18. Tiger sticks it to Accenture with comeback press conference; expect Elin to be there, too

    Feb 17, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Interesting that Tiger Woods chose Friday at 11 a.m. ET to break his silence and make his statement to the press, that being smack in the middle of the Accenture Match Play Championship. At least we know that he hasn’t lost that competitive fire. Accenture, you see, was one of the first sponsors to drop…

  19. 'Goooooooaaallll … oh wait, never mind'

    Comments Off

    A nice collection of videos for you today, beginning with this bit of greatness from Tememundo’s broadcast of the Mexican League Soccer match between Monterrey and Tigres. Believing they were back to live action when they were actually showing the replay of a previous goal, the announcer busts out the classic “Gooooooaaaalllll!” call before realizing…

  20. Swedish film foretold Elin's golf club attack on Tiger?

    Feb 17, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    So it’s true what they say about life imitating art, especially when it comes to Swedish chicks who take their revenge on philandering men. The first, unofficial, big screen depiction of the Tiger Woods divorce saga has already been released in Europe, even though it isn’t really about Tiger Woods at all. It’s a Swedish…
