  1. Monday Blogdome: Ain't that a kick in the head

    Jan 18, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Hey, it’s round, it’s white, it’s in front of me … I’m kicking it. Ow! It hurts just watching that, but wait until you see the rest of the photos from this match in the Irish Cup. (Warning: Includes nose picking). Elizabeth Lambert approves. It’s all part of this complete breakfast called Monday Blogdome. Enjoy.…

  2. Yes, you can attend Rachel Uchitel's birthday party

    Jan 18, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    It was formerly known as 251 Sunrise, a trendy Palm Beach nightspot that attracted acts such as Bruce Springstreen and the E Street Band. Oh, and 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta stopped in on Sept. 1, 2001, and with a companion consumed about $1,000 worth of champagne in 45 minutes. Now it’s called 251PB, it’s still…

  3. High school team wins at buzzer on 3-pointer … or wait, maybe not

    Jan 18, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    We take you now to Bruce Township, Michigan, where Mark Morris hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give visiting Macomb Dakota High a one-point win over Romeo High. In situations like this, of course, it’s always wise to run over to the losing team’s bench and taunt them, and even sit on their bench…

  4. In San Diego, being a Jets fan is a misdemeanor

    Jan 18, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    This morning we salute the Jets fan who stood up in the middle of a crowd of Chargers fans, pointed to his Jets shirt and began yelling “Jets! Jets! Jets!” at the top of his lungs. Back in New Jersey, he’d be known as “that laid-back, mellow guy not throwing full cups of beer onto…

  5. Brett Favre has his pants on the ground, apparently

    Jan 18, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Most unexpected scene from the Vikings spanking of the Cowboys on Sunday — no, even more unexpected than Keith Brooking going after Favre on the sideline. It was in the locker room afterward. We can thank American Idol for this, and by thank I mean seethe with secret rage. As Favre addressed the Vikings following…

  6. Morning Tweet: Conan vs. Leno, the final chapter

    Jan 18, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    This tweet was from Friday of course, but I’ve been off for the past two days (how about that Weed Against Speed this weekend, huh? Let’s all give him a big hand for his great debut). For those who aren’t familiar with him, Tim Goodman is the TV critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, and…

  7. Stubby Clapp's Video Vault: That's Some Mighty Fine Stickwork There, Lou

    Every weekday (and on weekends, occasionally), or at least every weekday in which we can find more than one, we’ll present the day’s best in little noted sports video gems. Please feel free to riff with your own dialogue. Who is Stubby Clapp, you ask? Sir, you wound our esteemed editor. The only drawback is…

  8. Gilbert Arenas Could Have Learned A Thing Or Two From NHL Players

    Jan 17, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Professional athletes, by nature, with all the down time on the road, are subject to bouts of extreme boredom. When looking at the sad case of Gilbert Arenas, there are many places where you can speculate where things went wrong. That’s where the NHL players, in particular Cal Clutterbuck and Derek Boogaard of the Minnesota…

  9. Brett Favre autographed bobblehead is just having fun bobbing there

    Jan 16, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    To be honest, I have never understood why folks are so obsessive about athlete bobblehead dolls. Ooh! Look! It’s head teeters back and forth and to and fro. Neat! But this little item, on the other hand, certainly has caught my fancy – although I would be far more interested if this little guy was…

  10. Lawsuit Over 'Shaqtus' Cactus A Prickly Situation

    Jan 16, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Many of you have likely seen the ESPN commercial where Shaquille O’Neal informs his traveling partners that “no one touches the Shaqtus,” which is a cactus that appears to have the face of the accomplished actor/aging basketball player. According to the commercial, the Shaqtus is a “a mystical plant indigenous to Florida, Arizona, Southern California…

  12. WSJ: Typical NFL game has only 11 minutes of actual football

    Jan 15, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    Of course anyone with TiVo already knows this; ever watch an NFL game you’ve recorded, and discovered that almost all of your time is spent fast-forwarding? That’s because — as the Wall Street Journal pointed out today with release of a study in their online edition — there is apparently only 11 minutes of actual…

  13. Friday Blogdome: PETA stands by Gilbert Arenas

    Jan 15, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Say what you will about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and their tactics, but they don’t cut and run when one of their advertising spokesmen faces hard times (sorry, Gillette). Received a statement by email from PETA senior publicist Michael Lyubinsky today, stating that PETA is moving forward with its anti-fur ad campaign…

  14. Announcements: Weekend Out of Bounds is here. Run for your lives!

    Jan 15, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Yes, due to popular demand (one guy threw a brick through our window), Out of Bounds will now also be publishing on weekends. I’ll be around occasionally then, but the great bulk of the Saturday and Sunday posting will be handled by Weed Against Speed, a blogger with a heart that’s brave and true. Also…

  15. Where in the world is Tiger Woods' libido? Today's sex rehab report: Mississippi!

    Jan 15, 2010, 3:50 PM EDT

    First it was Arizona, then South Africa, and now the new, hot report is that Tiger Woods is undergoing sex rehab in Mississippi. While it’s possible that Mr. Woods was taking a tour of all those facilities (“What is the magazine situation in your lobby?”), more likely two, or possibly all three, of those rumors…
