    Minnesota Radio Crew Finds a Way to Mention Detroit in Calling Brett Favre’s Late Interception. And then there’s the Vikings announcing crew, who I actually enjoyed hearing in agony, mostly because they find a way to take a shot at Detroit: [Detroit 4 Life] More stuff following the jump.

  2. Charges dropped against pro skateboarder in Anaheim Ducks hockey stick fan brawl

    Jan 25, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    It was the hockey fight you didn’t expect to see: Fans at an Anaheim Ducks game brawling over a hockey stick, which was tossed over the boards by Anaheim’s Scott Niedermayer. It happened in November, and it turns out that one of the combatants, pro skateboarder Mike Vallely, faced possible police charges for his role…

  3. Site: Elin's phone ruse drew out Rachel Uchitel, led to SUV crash

    Jan 25, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    If you’re like me, you long for the early days of the Tiger Woods scandal; when he only had one known alleged mistress, and the dents in his Escalade were still fresh. According to Gerald Posner of the Daily Beast, there’s new information on what happened that fateful Thanksgiving night, now so long ago. Elin…

  4. Beating the pranksters; coach makes amazing halfcourt shot

    Jan 25, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    OK, here’s the setup. Some Olathe Northwest High School (Kan.) students thought it would be funny to recreate a College prank, in which a teacher takes a halfcourt basketball shot while blindfolded, and the crowd goes wild, fooling him into thinking he made it. The prank is then revealed when they show him the…

  5. High school hoops team that won 170-35 up to more shenanigans

    Jan 25, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    OK, as you recall from last week, the Yates High (Texas) boys varsity basketball team beat hapless rival Lee High, 170-35, continuing to full-court press and gun up shots all the way through the fourth quarter. This despite leading at halftime, 100-12. This caused somewhat of a controversy, well, everywhere, including the comments section of…

  6. Same as it ever was

    Jan 25, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Editor’s note — Our weekend editor here at Out of Bounds, Weed Against Speed, happens to be a Minnesota resident and lifelong Vikings fan. Poor bastard. To make things even worse for him this morning, I asked him to write about Sunday’s game. Here are his thoughts. *** The names and faces change, but the…

  7. Incoming! Fla. golf course makes it rain on nearby home

    The bombardment has continued for 15 years, and Bill and Dorothy Abbott, both 75, have taken to wearing hard hats when they venture outside of their Naples, Fla. home. That’s because their house is being pelted with golf balls from the neighboring Stonebridge Country Club; a neverending reign of terror that began when the course…

  8. Tiger Woods mistress No. 19 called him 'Jose' to hide affair

    Jan 25, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    By now you’re probably aware of Tiger Woods mistress No. 19 (are we still using ‘alleged’? OK). That’s Emma Rotherham, 42, a native of Britain who lives in Celebration, Fla., and is said to have been the most recent to play through at the Windermere Golf & Infidelity Country Club. I pretty much stopped listing…

  9. Morning Tweet: Jim Nantz will steal your heart, and your soul

    Jan 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The squirm factor with Jim Nantz has been turned up to unacceptable levels recently, making the option of muting the TV and turning up the radio for the Super Bowl a real possibility for me. Yep, Nantz will pull SB XLIV duties for CBS in two weeks, where he will be hard-pressed to duplicate this…

Please feel free to riff with your own dialogue. Who is Stubby Clapp, you ask? Sir, you wound our esteemed editor. No idea if the…

    Alex Rodriguez, an admitted performance-enhancing drug user who fancies himself as a purple-lipped centaur, found the moment a bit overwhelming as he became emotional accepting the Babe Ruth Award Saturday night after being named the postseason MVP from the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. And how proud we are of…

    “Feast your eyes, glut your soul, on my accursed ugliness!” For once, I am not referring to myself when I say that – you wouldn’t believe the odd looks I get when I say it at White Castle – I am referencing the bizarre story of a troubled man who haunts the upper recesses of…

  13. Without Sasha Cohen, there is little reason to watch figure skating during the Olympics

    Jan 24, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    This stinks. And no, I refuse to be consoled. You see, my heart was broken last night when my Angel of the Ice, Sasha Cohen, one of the most graceful, beautiful and elegant creatures to ever lace up skates, ended up in fourth place after her error-filled long program at the U.S. figure skating championships…

  14. Minor League Hockey + Girl Scouts = Win

    In one of the most ingenious marketing partnerships in recent memory, the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL (East Coast Hockey League) are teaming up with the Girl Scouts of America are teaming up for “Girl Scout Night” on March 12th when the Wranglers take on the Bakersfield Condors. Mmmm….Do-Si-Dos.

  16. To say that Lindsey Vonn is red-hot right now would be a major understatement

    U.S. downhill skiing sensation Lindsey Vonn won the World Cup downhill at Cortina earlier today, making her 5-for-5 on the World Cup circuit this season. Cortina, in Italy, is one of the most celebrated events in women’s downhill, and if Vonn can somehow win the downhill event next week in St. Moritz, Switzerland, she will…

    Jan 23, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    The website X17 Online released photos yesterday of a man purported to be seeking treatment at the Gentle Path rehab center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi who eerily resembles one Tiger Woods. These new photos bring into question the veracity of the photo (right) of what was believed to be Tiger Woods at the facility published by…

  18. This is what it sounds like when doves cry

    Jan 23, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    As a life-long resident of the Land of 10,000 Lakes (that’s Minnesota, to the layperson), not only do I take great pride in the fact that Vikings have made it all the way to the NFC Championship game. More than that, perhaps, is the pride I take in the tremendous legacy of wonderful music that…

    I’ve been looking for the motivation to go on a diet and I think I’ve just found it. Rex Ryan is attributing some of the Jets’ mercurial playoff success to a lucky pizza stain on his favorite coaching sweatshirt. TIM TEBOW: “Is the stain in the shape of Jesus?” ME: “No. Settle down, Tim.” Ryan’s…

    *** Was Reggie Bush banned from the Playboy Mansion? How do you become cool enough to wear sunglasses indoors? Apparently Reggie Bush knows the answer to that question. The former USC running back may also have the answer to another yet unanswered question. Why was he supposedly banned from the Playboy Mansion? [Big League Screw]
