  1. Morning Tweet: Are there roaming charges in Heaven?

    Jan 11, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    We know that Jesus is a football fan; the folks at Catholic Shopper wouldn’t have made this if he wasn’t. And Kurt Warner must have called in a favor on Sunday; how else do you explain all those Packers’ turnovers? What an offensive clusterphooey. Except for the kicking game, of course. Stephan Fatsis, in case…

  2. World's tallest teenage girl can hoop it up

    Jan 8, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Watch CBS News Videos Online She’s 6-foot-10, ferocious in the paint, and only 16 years old. A college basketball coach of note says that she could redefine the women’s game. That may or may not be true, but there’s only one thing I know for sure: When Bubbles Anderson says that you’re taking her to…

  3. Friday Blogdome: Bert Blyleven on not being one of The Kids in the Hall

    Jan 8, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s my opinion that Bert Blyleven should get into the Hall of Fame for this beard-shirt combo alone, but I don’t get a vote (Bud Selig ran my BBWAA card through a very tiny shredder several years ago). As it was, he missed out by the slimmest of margins; getting 400 votes, .8 percent from…

  4. Did Mike Leach get Swiftboated at Texas Tech?

    Jan 8, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Did Mike Leach get Swiftboated? It appears that very well could be the case, as Sports by Brooks outlines today in a post linking ESPN football analyst Craig James and the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth, that funtime group of merry pranksters who waged a smear campaign against John Kerry during the 2004 Presidential election. Leach…

  5. Pacquiao chooses Joshua Clottey for March 13 fisticuffs

    Jan 8, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    So your dreams of a Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. Superfight of the Decade ended the way that your dreams always do, in shambles, with you turning to booze and cable TV soft porn to hide the terrible hurt within. But now comes word that Pacquiao has found another opponent; one who will not require steroid,…

  6. Girls soccer coach invites freshman player to orgy; jailarity ensues

    Jan 8, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    So what, now it’s a crime for a girls soccer coach to text message one of his 14-year-old players and invite her to an orgy? Oh wait, yeah, I guess it is. It all happened, allegedly, at Del Norte High near San Diego, where a 35-year-old male soccer coach got all flirty with one of…

  7. Togo's team bus machine gunned by rebels. Yikes

    This couldn’t have come at a worse time for the nation of Angola, which is struggling to reinvent itself after years of bloody civil war. As the nation gears up to play host to the African Cup of Nations soccer tournament beginning on Saturday, news comes that the Togo national team bus was machine-gunned by…

  8. BCS Golden Streaker Guy is just misundersood, chubby

    Comments Off

    Now that Batman is on the run from the law (see last 10 mins of The Dark Knight), we only have The Masked Streaker to protect us. You only caught the briefest glimpse of him on television on Thursday, as he was quickly corralled and hauled to a security pen during the big BCS Championship…

  9. Morning Tweet: Are you ready for your closeup, Mr. Gilbert?

    Jan 8, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    I’ve seen Mr. Gilbert’s girlfriend, and I see no reason to trade her in; but then I’m a hoarder. If Nick Saban is hoisting the crystal Still-No-Sensible-College-Football-Playoffs Trophy, then why is Texas’ backup quarterback getting all the positive buzz this morning? Because unlike Nick Saban — who is about as cuddly as Clint Eastwood in…

  10. Your gratuitous who's-Alex-Rodriguez-dating-now post

    Jan 7, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

    Because you demanded it — at least that’s what was written on the note attached to the brick — here’s the lowdown on Alex Rodriguez’s new lady love. Her name is Elaine Spottswood, 25, of Key West, and the big news here is not that A-Rod has found a new girlfriend; it’s that he’s found…

    A Backyard Football Prank With Painful Results. You have to feel bad for that kid. Poor bastard didn’t see it coming at all. On a scale of dirty hits from one to ten, that’s a “Hines Ward.” [Second-String Fullback] Video following the jump.

    OK Jelisaholics, it’s Thursday; time for your weekly fix. And since some big college football game is also scheduled for tonight, Jelisa Castrodale has agreed to go in depth and handicap the action. We promise not to break in during the post with any weather reports. *** By Jelisa Castrodale Most nights, I sink deep…

  13. Yet another senseless pole dancing injury leads to lawsuit

    Jan 7, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    In the most horrifying pole dancing incident since the 2009 Teen Choice Awards, a woman is suing a New York fitness center for injuries she said she incurred while taking a pole dancing class. Sue Ann Wee says that she slid down the pole and hurt her shoulders, and wants unspecified cash. Evidently she thought…

  14. Tiger Woods impersonator Canh Oxelson on love, golf and life after the scandal

    Jan 7, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Until Tiger Woods decides to re-enter public life, the only touchstone we have to the world’s greatest golfer is Canh Oxelson. Call him Tiger Woods’ avatar; a 38-year-old educator from Los Angeles who is the dean of students at a prep school on weekdays, and on weekends makes handsome extra cash as a Woods impersonator.…

  15. Shula 80th birthday party guests: 'We watched like lepers as our heroes had a ball'

    Anyone who saw the James Cameron version of Titanic knows the difference between first class and steerage. And such it was at Land Shark Stadium on Saturday night, where some Miami Dolphins season ticket holders contend they were treated as third-class citizens after being invited to Don Shula’s 80th birthday party. Even though the fans…

  16. Alleged mistress shopping book, claims Tiger had gay sex romps

    Jan 7, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    According to my calculations, Loredana Jolie Ferriolo is the 13th alleged Tiger Woods mistress to come forward either by media scrutiny or her own admission, and the only one to have attended Nassau Community College (that we know of). Her name first came out when Hollywood madam Michelle Braun mentioned her in an interview with…

  17. Morning Tweet: BCS title game … taste the excitement

    Jan 7, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    If you’re ordering pie for tonight’s big showdown between Texas and Alabama, chances are it won’t be from Domino’s; their new commercials were lampooned rather mercilessly on The Colbert Report last night. As for me, I’ll still be eating dry toast, trying to get over this flu bug. It also makes me a little queasy…

  18. Gilbert Arenas PETA anti-fur ad: Bad timing, or crazy like a fox?

    Jan 6, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    Well, at least we know he wasn’t shooting animals with those guns. PETA rolled out its latest anti-fur campaign ad today; and while some may consider any Gilbert Arenas-based publicity today as bad timing, PETA takes a different view. As spokesman Dan Shannon told me via email: “Arenas may not have a job in the…

    While it wasn’t quite up to par with last year’s marriage proposal, the makeout session between Boise State offensive lineman Michael Ames and his fiancee, Tess Tracy, following the Broncos’ Fiesta Bowl win over TCU did its share to uphold the tradition. Is there Vitamin E in potatoes? Your Wednesday Blogdome continues after the jump.…

  20. Texas high school boys team wins 170-35; most not amused

    Jan 6, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Setting a state scoring record in high school basketball can be fun, if the other team is relatively competitive. But Houston’s Yates High School is taking some heat at this hour for its 170-35 win over Lee High School on Tuesday night; a game which included a fight, and featured Yates continuing to press the…
