    First came its unfortunate marketing catchphrase, Never Play Alone. And now EA Sports, the gaming giant which is set to unleash Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 on the world, has announced some interesting custom accessories for its Ninetendo Wii version which comes out in June. Among those are a Wii Club that can be lengthened…

  2. Have PETA's mad-dog tactics gone too far?

    Feb 17, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    As you’ve probably heard, PETA crashed the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday, proving once again that if you want to get your message out you need to be the biggest bitches in the room. Whether you agree with them or not, you’ll have to admit that the animal rights group knows a thing…

  3. Morning Tweet: Wax on, wax off

    Olympic figure skating? Usually I’d rather be molested by wolves. Until I saw this, that is: The frozen stylings of Belgium’s Kevin van der Perren, dressed resplendently in a skeleton costume for his short program performance yesterday. Twitter’s been on fire since the routine, because of course it immediately conjured visions of this; the classic…

  4. Viewers, chickens shocked as Barry Melrose says 'chickens—' live on the air

    Feb 16, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Look at you, Canada. All full of yourself now that the Winter Olympics are in full swing; you feel you can say and do anything. How else do you explain the Great White North’s Barry Melrose saying “chickens—” live on ESPN’s First Take this morning? It all started as playful banter between Melrose (off to…

    OU Sooner Deflates His Dirigible Indiscriminately. Police arrested University of Oklahoma football player Austin Box over the weekend in Bricktown after an officer saw him urinating on bar stools, according to a police report. An officer saw Box, a junior linebacker, standing below the entrance to Skky Bar on Mickey Mantle Drive about 2 a.m.…

  6. Guy kicked repeatedly in the groin … you know, for science

    Feb 16, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    It’s the sentence you never hoped to see, brought to you at last by Out of Bounds: “After 5 years of taking thousands of kicks to the groin, his brain no longer processes substance.” No, not William Clay Ford, Sr. … the man referred to here is Kirby Roy, who now holds some kind of…

  7. No soup for you! … Elin won't move back in with Tiger

    Feb 16, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    We went light on the report on Monday by Radar Online in which alleged Tiger Woods mistress Joslyn James claimed that Woods got her pregnant … twice. Because it’s Radar, and it strains credulity; Tiger is a stickler for detail, and I’m quite sure he has a tiny golf bag filled with various condoms for…

  8. Yeah, that NY Rangers marriage proposal from Sunday? Fake

    Feb 16, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    A couple of you have asked why I barely mentioned the New York Rangers crash-and-burn fan marriage proposal at the Garden from Sunday, in which a man popped the question to his sweetie on the Jumbotron, and was turned down flat. I stamped it “Fake” immediately and relegated it to “About Last Night” in the…

  9. More than 10,000 American families have a child named Kobe

    Feb 16, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Interesting statistic from the Riverside Pres-Enterprise: There are more than 10,000 children in the U.S. named Kobe, and while the popularity of naming your kid after the Lakers’ star has waxed and waned over the past 10 years, it’s currently on the rise. Kobe was the 403rd most popular name for a baby boy in…

  10. We have a winner for best Winter Olympics mustache

    Feb 16, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Germany: Currently second in the Vancouver Games medal count, but first in facial hair. Do not touch the ‘stache, lest you spook a covey of quail from within that will then draw fire from the nearby Hungarian biathlon team. Meanwhile, Canada is talking serious s— as hockey competition begins. Take a look at the video…

  11. Knicks fan T-shirt design may be a cry for help

    Feb 16, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    First of all, when modeling a new T-shirt, should your tats be so colorful and varied that they totally distract from the product? Secondly, do we have to go all the way back to ’93 to find a moment in Knicks’ history worthy of clothing commemoration? These are good questions, which thegiantpeach.com, makers of this…

  12. Morning Tweet: Let the Wookiee win

    Feb 16, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    That would be entertaining; Carrie Fisher should hand out all the medals. Even better: if they played it for the men’s downhill ceremony, with Bode Miller making Wookiee sounds from the bronze platform. Meanwhile, a fun new game to make the figure skating competition more interesting; mute the sound on your TV and play alternate…

  13. Spyware king crying over getting beaten in men's mogul. Oh boo hoo

    Feb 15, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Alexandre Bilodeau’s gold medal victory in men’s moguls is the feel-good story of the winter Olympics so far; the first gold won by a Canadian in his home country. I feel like hugging a Mountie. But if you’re a computer user, it’s even more of a glorious result. Bilodeau, you see, beat Australian Dale Begg-Smith,…

    Feb 15, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Dana White Doesn’t Think Much About the Strikeforce Organization. “I say it all the time, they are a small organization, and they are always going to be a small organization. The whole Herschel Walker thing, listen I give the guy the props … he is almost 50 years old. He is still in great shape…

  15. Ice rink roof collapses, leaving one Zamboni dead

    Feb 15, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Okay, the roof collapsed at a Pennsylvania ice rink during a youth hockey tournament on Sunday, but don’t go screaming into the night. Both teams were in their locker rooms at the time, and no one was injured; save for an unfortunate Zamboni, which was the only thing on the ice. The driver got away…

  16. Tiger threesome action resulted in hush money, wacky hotel chase?

    Feb 15, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    OK, this is starting to sound like a Billy Wilder movie, only with actual sex. We take you now to the New York Daily News, which brings us a delightful little tale of Tiger Woods, a bed, two girls, and a chase down the hall to retrieve a video camera. Oh, and money paid to…

  17. The most hilarious video of zookeepers capturing a guy in a tiger suit that you'll see all day

    Feb 15, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    I debated most of the morning over whether to post this, being that strictly speaking it isn’t about sports. But how often do you get to follow a post about Tiger Woods with a post about a guy in a tiger costume being captured by zookeepers? A zoo in Tokyo is concerned about its animals…

  18. Elin Nordegren parties in Orlando; while Tiger's friends wonder why he's been silent

    In today’s Tiger Woods roundup, we have his golfing buddies beginning to complain that he hasn’t made a move to contact any of them; wife Elin Nordegren stepping out in Orlando for a friend’s birthday party (still sans wedding ring), and one of the alleged harem of mistresses claiming that Tiger got her pregnant ……

  19. Local Hero: Scottish rugby fan drops kilt on live TV

    Feb 15, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Finally answering the centuries-old question as to what a Scotsman wears under his kilt, a player from the Hawick Rugby Club dropped his kilt on national TV on Friday, exposing his Groundskeeper Willy to a live audience on BBC Wales. Here’s my favorite paragraph from the story at the London Daily Express: Keith Davies shocked…

  20. Fat kid first to be eliminated in world's largest dodgeball game

    Feb 15, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Obviously unimpressed by the prospect of their nation hosting the Winter Olympics, 1,200 University of Alberta students decided to get their third grade on and organize the world’s biggest dodgeball game. Last week’s spectacle broke the unofficial world record of 450 people, set by San Diego State on Sept 5, 2009 (as if you didn’t…
