    Jan 22, 2010, 6:45 PM EDT

    Controversy continues to swirl over a proposed all-white basketball league based in Georgia, with one Augusta television station releasing an online poll today showing that a majority actually approve of the idea. (Meanwhile, my idea for an all-cat production of Billy Elliot goes nowhere). Part-time promoter and antique dealer Don “Moose” Lewis caused a mini…

    Here at Stubby Clapp’s Video Vault we don’t shy from the controversial stories, even if they involve an all-out brawl in a Russian 10-under hockey league. It’s so awesome when the ref can hoist up two combatants at a time by their collars and haul them off the ice. Plus more fun stuff following the…

  3. Begun, the New Jersey Bowling Wars have

    Jan 22, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Following is a story of intrigue, family jealousy and bowling. It’s the story arc that could have played out on The Sopranos had that series lasted an additional season, but since it didn’t, it had to happen in real life. Police investigating a fire that destroyed Loyle Lanes bowling alley in Vineland, New Jersey last…

    Jan 22, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Tiger Woods is hogging the jacuzzi and getting private maid service, and his fellow sex rehab patients are getting fed up with it, says a British tabloid. Is Woods “playing through” at a Mississippi rehab clinic? That’s the claim by the London Sun, which reports today that Woods is getting preferential treatment at the Hattiesburg…

  5. Equestrian rider accused of violating state HIV law

    Jan 22, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Well here’s something odd and random to close out your weekday. Darren Chiacchia, a celebrated equestrian rider who was almost killed in a riding accident in 2008, was arrested Wednesday for violating a Florida state law that required him to declare he was HIV positive to his one-time sexual partner. I went into this post…

    His bodyguards can protect him from terrorist attacks, but apparently David Beckham is helpless to prevent random assault on his most vulnerable citizens — his testicles. By now you may know that Beckham was grabbed in the nether region by a woman during an Italian TV interview on Thursday; he’s on loan to AC Milan,…

  7. Time for racial and cultural insensitivity … on ice!

    Jan 22, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Look, everyone knows that my ice dancing career was cut short when I choreographed a routine for myself and my partner entitled “Michael Vick Did a Very Bad Thing.” So I can empathize with Russians Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin, who are taking heat for their planned routine at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. As…

  8. Morning Tweet: Alf likes Panthers, Bengals this week

    So yeah, Alf is now on Twitter. I have to hand it to him; he’s moving along with the times. In Alf’s heyday, there was no social networking. But living in the ’80s had its advantages; the 49ers were good, Mark McGwire hit home runs naturally and cats roamed the plains in great herds. The…

  9. Mississippi State confirms football recruit strip club shenanigans

    So today we return to Mississippi State, where the university issued an email statement today confirming claims that a group of of their high school football recruits dropped by a local strip club during their recent official recruiting visit.

  11. Who will go to the Super Bowl? It's Complicated

    Jan 21, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Jelisa Castrodale stops by to handicap this weekend’s NFC and AFC Championship games, and also do a little bit of light yardwork. It should be noted that she attended Wake Forest at the same time that a certain Jim Caldwell was the Demon Deacons’ head football coach, so this should be fun. *** By Jelisa…

  13. No, cannot have! Bowler misses perfect 900 series on final frame

    Jan 21, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Meet Bill Fong, who we could call the Nate Kaeding of bowling, except that he only missed once. But that one was so, so painful … one single pin, during his last frame, that stood between him and amateur bowling immortality. The 46-year-old barbershop owner from Plano, Texas, had just bowled two straight perfect games…

  14. Cops tell their side in Jets fan arrest video controversy

    Jan 21, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Usually the police don’t have to issue statements justifying the arrest of a New York Jets fan. Seeing uniformed men carrying off a screaming, handcuffed man wearing a Jets jersey is a natural occurrence in nature, like the coming of fall, or the migration of geese. But this was different: A video surfaced of a…

  17. For real outdoor relaxation, there's nothing like Sandy Balls

    Jan 21, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Because no matter how old we get, guys are all emotionally 12 years old, I present you with this delightful video following the jump (sorry, ladies). It promotes a British outdoors recreation retreat gloriously named Sandy Balls. Due to variations in the cultural lexicon between our two great nations, the resort’s name is probably not…

  18. Geoff Ogilvy: Tiger should address media before returning to golf

    Jan 21, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Think you’re tired of the Tiger Woods saga now? Wait until he finally gets back on a golf course — his former coach speculates that will be at the U.S. Open this summer — and then you’ll realize how great things were back in the nice, peaceful days when he was still in hiding. One…

  19. Morning Tweet: Red Sox blog behind Conan Twitter shenanigans

    Jan 21, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Our story so far: Although no formal announcement has been made, the smart money has Conan O’Brien landing at Fox in September, the soonest he can get back on the air per his separation agreement with NBC. One reason we know this is that someone at Fox evidently jumped the gun last week, registering the…
