    Every weekday, 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 me. Monta Ellis’ Backwards Trick Shot VIDEO: Nails Absurd Basket. Plenty…

  2. What awesomeness is this? Jockeys fight … during race. Yes!

    Jan 15, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    And we take you now to — well, it’s Philadelphia again, folks — where two jockeys got a little perturbed with each other and came to blows at Philadelphia Park last week. Oh, did I mention that it occurred during the race, in the middle of the backstretch? Call it midget wrestling on horseback, I…

  3. Opposing fans beat up victorious high school basketball team; hey, it's Philly

    Jan 15, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Welcome to Olney High in Philadelphia, where you must submit your name in advance and pass a background check in order to attend your school’s varsity boys basketball game. Sir, please pass through this metal detector, and remove your shoes. Are you a parent of one of the players? We’ll need to see a birth…

  4. Charles Barkley, Snoop Dogg decide once and for all who's blacker

    Jan 15, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    I am stunned by this news that was just sent to me: According to an emailer, Charles Barkley and Snoop Dogg each had their DNA tested on The George Lopez Show to find out which man was blacker. I mean, really … someone actually watched The George Lopez Show? At this point, is there anything…

  5. Cowabunga! Accenture replaces Tiger Woods with surfboarding elephant

    Jan 15, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Accenture was the second big company to jettison Tiger Woods following the SUV Crash Heard ‘Round the World; a global technology consultant can’t be associated with an array of sordid affairs, after all. Their ads have to conjure dignity and trustworthiness, which is why they’ve now gone with a surfboarding elephant. Jumbo’s laying into a…

  6. Morning Tweet: Andris Biedrins chases an NBA record (clank!)

    Jan 15, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    He’s only played 12 games due to injury, and attempted seven free throws, but Golden State Warriors center Andris Biedrins has missed all of those free throw attempts, putting him on a collision course with the NBA record book. I suppose that several NBA players have made it through a season without making a free…

  7. Russell Simmons: Tiger Woods donating $3 million to Haiti relief

    Jan 14, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Is Tiger Woods at this hour piloting a cargo plane full of relief supplies to earthquake-ravaged Haiti? “We don’t have time to land!” shouts Woods, over the roar of the engines. “Help me strap on this parachute! Just throw the penicillin and canned food after me!” So either Woods is coming out of hiding with…

  8. When Earth's gravity warps your brain: All hail the Wash. Capitals' Capstronaut

    Jan 14, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Fun fact: The Washington Capitals came very close to being named the Washington Cosmos when they entered the NHL in 1974, which would have made an astronaut the perfect mascot. That name was ultimately rejected, but more than thirty years later an intrepid fan tapped into that space themed energy and invented the Capstronaut; the…

  9. Thursday Blogdome: Lane Kiffin spins and spins and spins

    I Don’t Think Lane Kiffin Will Be Moving Again For Awhile. “Well, I think this; when I explained my decision to the players, obviously there were some hurt players but that’s to be expected, but when guys really came in and sat down I spent a lot of time with a number of them —…

  10. Stubby Clapp's Video Vault: Robots dance for Blues tickets

  11. Happy first birthday Knox Kiffin, and other college football observations

    Jan 14, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Here’s your Jelisa Castrodale for the week, true believers. This week she counsels heartbroken University of Tennessee fans, because she’s from West Virginia, and thus speaks the language of the jilted. Perhaps now, finally, we can put all of this Lane Kiffin ugliness behind us. Probably not, though. Enjoy. *** By Jelisa Castrodale Knox Kiffin…

  12. Get your team-branded World Cup anti-stab vests before they're all sold out

    Jan 14, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Well, you’d like to attend the World Cup in South Africa this June, but how do you protect your vital inner body parts from stabs, cuts, slashes and blows from sharp, edged or spiked weapons? It’s a real dilemma. But now the answer is here! A Johannesburg company is marketing something called the Protektorvest; anti-stab…

  13. Tiger's South African sex rehab vacation (allegedly!)

    Jan 14, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    The London Sun claims that it has sources who confirm that Tiger Woods — in hiding since a Thanksgiving night SUV crash that tragically took the lives of a tree, a fire hydrant the public’s ability to focus on anything else — has checked into a sex rehab clinic in South Africa. Why South Africa,…

  14. Was Dom Capers caught sleeping in the Green Bay coaches box?

    Jan 14, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s not completely clear to me from the video I’ve seen, but many sources swear that Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers was caught asleep in the coaches box during their Wildcard playoff game with the Cardinals on Sunday. That would explain a lot, actually. Here’s the video, you be the judge.

  15. President Obama has figured out this whole Tiger Woods thing

    Jan 14, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Well, here’s another high level security goof. Someone let President Obama talk to People Magazine about Tiger Woods; in my opinion a worse mistake than letting a herd of Tareq and Michaele Salahis into a White House state dinner. The magazine comes out on Friday, and we have a couple of excerpted quotes following the…

  16. Morning Tweet: Are you on Team Conan?

    Jan 14, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    I have no real opinion on who should be hosting The Tonight Show or what time it airs; I have bigger concerns. But I do admit that I’m having a lot of fun watching the hosts of the various late-night programs taking potshots at each other. Jimmy Kimmel doing his entire show in Jay Leno…

  17. Hammer of justice falls on fake Tiger Woods Gatorade guy

    Jan 13, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Let this be a lesson to all the kids out there. If you produce fake labels featuring Tiger Woods with the word ‘Unfaithful’ on one side and a picture of Tiger and Ellen Nordegren on the other, and put the labels on bottles on Tropical-Mango Gatorade and place about 100 of them on supermarket store…

  18. Natalie Gulbis to appear on episode of CSI

    Jan 13, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    I don’t know how the CSI franchise has managed to stay on the air for 10 years without a single appearance by Duffy Waldorf, but it has. And now the CBS show will rectify that oversight in an upcoming episode, which will also feature Rocco Mediate and Natalie Gulbis (pictured!). I’m sure that Waldorf and…

  19. Wednesday Blogdome: Colt McCoy-Rachel Glandorf proposal photos

    OK, I suppose I understand proposing to your girlfriend in the middle of a football stadium, especially if you’re a star quarterback. But who invites the press? Colt McCoy, that’s who. On Tuesday we told you about his grand proposal to girlfriend Rachel Glandorf, but we had no idea there would be photos. What a…

  20. Arenas at one time owned 'hundreds of guns'

    Jan 13, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Remember the scene in Tremors, when they go into Michael Gross’ basement and there’s a gigantic weapons arsenal there? Welcome to Gilbert Arenas’ house. At least that’s the way it used to look when he owned “hundreds of guns,” as he admitted to investigators recently in a probe into weapons charges against the Washington Wizards…
