  1. Guest Post: MST3K's Mary Jo Pehl on the Vikings, Longhorns, and why sports matters

    Jan 6, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    If you love mocking bad movies — or have made one yourself — no doubt you’re familiar with Mystery Science Theater 3000, the television show that riffs on putrid cinema so that we don’t have to. The show enjoyed a 10-year run on Comedy Central and then the SciFi Channel, before being canceled in 1999…

  2. Photos: Jayson Williams having a good ol' time moments before DWI crash

    Jan 6, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    So Jayson Williams claims that he wasn’t drunk when his car had an encounter with a tree in New York City on Tuesday night, breaking a bone in his neck. And his manager, Akhtar Farzaie, said that the ex-Net would never engage is such behavior: “I’ve known Jayson for many years as his friend/manager and…

  3. Rihanna dating Matt Kemp? OK, sounds reasonable

    Jan 6, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    OK, the main reason I’m writing on this is so that I can link to my favorite Rihanna photo. I believe that was taken just before she was captured by Batman. In real life, she is also a singer, whose discography sometimes reads as if she singing just with Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren in…

  4. Ex-NHL coach says police told him Elin knocked out two of Tiger's teeth

    Jan 6, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Leave it to an ex-NHL coach living in Florida to get to the bottom of what transpired at Tiger Woods’ home on Thanksgiving night. You may discount this, but I find it one of the more believable accounts of what led to Mr. Woods’ Wild Ride; Pat Burns, during a radio interview with Toronto’s CKAC…

  5. Morning Tweet: Hey baby let's go to Vegas

    Jan 6, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    While it’s true that there was no posting on this blog on Tuesday, rumors that I was at The Palms in Las Vegas are completely false; I don’t care who you think you saw at the Moon nightclub. I was sick as a hyena, wondering why the hell that flu shot didn’t work. The same…

  6. A shirtless Tiger Woods in a toque to haunt your dreams

    Jan 4, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    For all of you mistress types who don’t mind sleeping with someone’s husband as long as he’s famous — not judging you, ladies; just taking roll call — here’s your eye candy for today. For the rest of you, sorry. But blame Vanity Fair, which in this month’s issue gives us Tiger Woods photos by…

  7. Monday blogdome: Chandler saves the day

    Jan 4, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    If I ever thought that “Chandler” as a given name would catch on, I would have jumped all over that. Chandler Chandler would have been a a great name for my son. But as all of those Friends reruns have taught us, the name only exists in fiction. Um, wait a minute … what’s this?…

  8. Media gets punked by Elin's twin sister in ski vacation photos

    Jan 4, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Some enterprising tipster apparently made quite a few dollars telling the British tabloids that Elin Nordegren was spending a ski vacation in Chamonix, France this past weekend. Soon photos were snapped and reports reverberated in People Magazine, at Radar.com, and several other sites, with Elin schussing about on the slopes and hanging out next to…

  9. Odds on that Usain Bolt-Chris Johnson race that likely won't happen

    Jan 4, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    As Jerry said in the Seinfield episode The Race, “I choose not to run.” Despite a breathless ESPN claim to the contrary, the agent for Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt said that there is “no truth” to a report by ESPN football analyst Adam Schefter that Bolt and Titans running back Chris Johnson are trying…

  10. Shocking dessert violence at Liberty Bowl luncheon

    Jan 4, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    I love it when scripts to old Three Stooges shorts become real life. You may have known that East Carolina running back Jonathan Williams and defensive back Leonard Paulk were suspended and missed the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, but did you know why? The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that Paulk and Williams scuffled during the AutoZone…

  11. Brit Hume: Tiger should 'turn to Christianity' for redemption

    Jan 4, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    This may come as shocking news to the many who thought that Tiger Woods was God, but Fox News anchor Brit Hume laid out an action plan on Sunday for Woods to achieve ultimate redemption for his sins. During a roundtable discussion about the new year on Washington Today, Hume said that, in order to…

  12. Aussie hurdler has boob job reversed to help country

    Jan 4, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    How far would you go to win a gold medal for your country? Hurdler Jana Rawlinson must really love Australia, because she had her fake boobs removed in order to have a better chance in the 2012 Games. Links to before and after photos following the jump. Meanwhile, she’s also having one boob replaced; her…

  13. Morning Tweet: Zorn faces the music

    Jan 4, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    One can’t help but feel a little sorry for Jim Zorn. They way I understand it, he was at first hired to be offensive coordinator for the Redskins when Joe Gibbs left as head coach, then was promoted to the top spot when Daniel Snyder couldn’t find anyone else. Well, now he’s toast, sadly. His…

  14. Tiger Woods, the Bible, and casting stones; our final post of 2009

    Dec 31, 2009, 4:00 PM EDT

    There has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the comments section of the Tiger Woods stories here, and many of you have included Bible quotes. I’m not sure that a whimsical sports culture blog is the platform for that, but hey, rock on, true believers. An excerpt from one of Wednesday’s comments: Now…

  15. Jamie Jungers: 'I don't have naked photos of Tiger Woods'

    Dec 31, 2009, 2:50 PM EDT

    One of the more persistent rumors surrounding the Tiger Woods Saga is that Mistress No. 4, Jamie Jungers, took photos of Woods while he was asleep and naked, and that those photos would eventually be sold to the highest bidder. TMZ? Martha Stewart Living? The mind reels. Tiger’s lawyers were apparently so concerned about this…

  16. Morning Tweet: It's New Year's Eve! (we're doomed)

    Dec 31, 2009, 9:00 AM EDT

    Well that’s it; God is officially pissed. The head of the Russian Space Agency said on Wednesday that an asteroid called Apophis is hurtling toward Earth, and may hit us in 20 years, killing millions. Apparently the Lord is a sports fan, and has had enough with O.J. and Michael Vick and Mike Leach and,…

  17. Rachel Uchitel denies hooking up with Tiger in Palm Beach

    Dec 30, 2009, 7:20 PM EDT

    Rachel Uchitel — Tiger Woods alleged mistress No. 1 in your program — is denying rumors that she was out with Woods at a party this weekend, and has been staying with him on his yacht. Uchitel is indeed in Palm Beach, where Woods’ yacht is docked, but told Access Hollywood today that she did…

  18. Wednesday blogdome: Pacquiao vs. Foreman?

    It’s our final blogdome of 2009, and what better way to end things than with the ongoing drama between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr.? In today’s episode, Pacquiao’s promoter, Bob Arum, is trying to find another fight. But if he’s so serious about finding a replacement, why is he on vacation? Stay tuned. ***…

  19. Tiger partying, living with Rachel Uchitel? Oy vey

    Dec 30, 2009, 4:00 PM EDT

    Listen, in 19 years we’re all going to be dead anyway, so what’s the difference? But before we perish I thought you’d want to know that Tiger Woods and his alleged mistress No. 1, Rachel Uchitel, have been spotted at a swanky mansion party in Palm Beach recently, and were — steady now — holding…

  20. Tiger Woods and nine other things that happened; a year in review

    Dec 30, 2009, 12:00 PM EDT

    This blog has only been in existence for a couple of months, but Jelisa Castrodale has been around considerably longer. So we’ve enlisted her to write a sports year-in-review, while cautioning her not to include her usual secret coded messages to the Freemasons. Also this article will be remarkably free of Charlie Sheen. Let’s begin…
