  2. Oh no! Patriots mascot nabbed in prostitution sting

    Dec 11, 2009, 7:00 PM EDT

    AFC Wild Card Playoff Game - New York Jets vs New England Patriots - January 7, 2007

    I don’t know how to say this so I’m just going to say it; Pat the Patriot, beloved mascot of the New England Patriots and inspiration to Boston-area children since 1960, has been arrested in a prostitution sting. But it gets worse: Evidently Pat was caught answering a naughty ad on Craigslist. Placed by a…

  3. Daly, Tiger role reversal has the golf world reeling

    Dec 11, 2009, 6:30 PM EDT

    When this picture was taken, John Daly was the Curly Howard of golf; always getting into impossible scrapes and whining plaintively to Moe after his latest misadventure with a Hooters waitress: “I’m a victim of circumstance!” And Tiger Woods was, well, Tiger Woods. But now, as if in a Dr. Frankenstein experiment, the two have…

  5. Minnesota high school team earns a shutout … in basketball

    Dec 11, 2009, 4:04 PM EDT

    When Moose-Lake Willow River puts the clamps on defensively, look out. The Minnesota varsity high school girls basketball team beat Wrenshall 65-0 on Thursday, thanks in part to smothering defensive pressure, plus the fact that Wrenshall missed 11 layups. Oops. Key quote: Wrenshall coach Michelle Blanchard says she’s got a young, inexperienced team this year…

  7. British court bans nude Tiger Woods photos

    Dec 11, 2009, 1:05 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    OK, lawyers for Tiger Woods aren’t saying that nude photos of their client actually exist (nudge nudge, say no more), but they are scrambling around the globe anyway, filing injunctions to prevent these non-existent photographs from appearing in the media. In Britain you can do that — their laws concerning libel and slander are quite…

  8. Elin tells Tiger he must give up golf?

    Dec 11, 2009, 12:00 PM EDT

    The big news in the Tiger Woods saga today would seem to be Jamie Jungers on the Today Show, telling the world that she dumped Tiger because he wouldn’t give her money. But how about his wife, Elin Nordegren, giving an ultimatum to keep the marriage together? The London Sun is saying that one of…

  9. Ecstasy pills with the Olympics logo? Curling condoms? The Vancouver Games are gonna be fun

    Dec 11, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    Canada’s crackdown on unauthorized Winter Olympics merchandise is going quite well, I see. Vancouver police executing a drug raid at a residential home found a cache of ecstasy tablets with the Olympic logo imprinted on them, proving once again that if you can’t win a lot of medals, you can still be deliriously happy. Also,…

  10. Chad Ochocinco to rename himself after crappy 1980s car?

    Dec 11, 2009, 10:00 AM EDT

    I’ve always said that Chad Ochocinco is one whack in the head and a couple of tattoos from being Dennis Rodman, and I don’t mean that in a good way. In ten years he’ll be appearing at local card shows with a table adjacent to Pete Rose, signing copies of his latest straight-to-video action movie…

  11. Morning Tweet: Thanks mom … my mother, folks

    Dec 11, 2009, 9:00 AM EDT

    Here’s how bad it’s getting for the Steelers … not only do they lose to the Browns, but their mothers are brawling with local ruffians on game day. The mother of linebacker James Harrison was questioned by Akron, Ohio police last night at some point following Pittsburgh’s 13-6 loss to Cleveland. Those women better stop…

  12. Update: Golfers deny making critical comments about Woods

    Dec 10, 2009, 4:30 PM EDT

    Two PGA Tour golfers who were quoted by a Life & Style Magazine reporter as saying critical things about Tiger Woods are saying that they never talked with the magazine. Wednesday’s online edition of Life & Style Weekly included an article with quotes from Ben Crane and Charles Warren about Woods and wife Elin Nordegren.…

    Dec 10, 2009, 3:00 PM EDT

    All right, simmer down … here’s your Jelisa Castrodale for the week. (I refer to her growing fan base as Castrophiles). The other day she finally attended The Blind Side, and since I paid for the ticket, she was required to do a report. Here it is. *** By Jelisa Castrodale Last weekend, the top…

  15. Ask your soccer coach if Flomax is right for you

    Dec 10, 2009, 1:00 PM EDT

    This video of a German soccer goalie running behind a stadium advertising barrier to take a leak — while the game is going on — is pretty amusing. OK, not as amusing as this, but it’ll do for a Thursday. Well, hopefully this ref was working the game. Video following the jump.

  16. Elin broke Tiger's tooth with a cell phone?

    Dec 10, 2009, 12:00 PM EDT

    If true, that’s quite a shot. Cell phone, right to the kisser! Boom goes the dynamite! I saw this Star Magazine report on Tuesday, and decided not to write about it. But I was listening to KNBR (San Francisco) radio host Ralph Barbieri last night, and he had this to say: “Talk among the golf…

  17. The Tiger Woods text messages: 'Quiet and secretively we will always be together'

    Dec 10, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    The New York Post has obtained what it says are text messages between Tiger Woods and alleged mistress Jaimee Grubbs (she’s No. 2 in your program), and while we may never know if they’re authentic, scrolling through them does prove a couple of things. 1. Reading other people’s text messages is excruciating, even when the…

  18. Dartmouth squash heckling incident rocks Ivy League

    Dec 10, 2009, 10:00 AM EDT

    I hope you’re sitting down for this, because the venerable sport of Ivy League squash has been propelled into a state of turmoil and bitter recrimination, and I’m not going to sugarcoat the details. Dartmouth president Jim Yong Kim has apologized to Harvard University for the behavior of some students on Saturday, after the Harvard…

    Ha. Yes, that would be a scary movie indeed (I hope it’s in 3D). And speaking of baseball, I thought you should know that Barry Bonds’ agent has officially called an end to the slugger’s baseball career. Quote: “When 2008 came around, I couldn’t get him a job. When 2009 came around, I couldn’t get…

  20. U.S. congressman latest to abandon the S.S. Tiger Woods

    Dec 9, 2009, 5:30 PM EDT

    As Tiger Woods’ public image sinks slowly into the icy waters of the north Atlantic (with all of his alleged mistresses occupying the same nearby life boat), now comes word that a U.S. congressman is writing him off as well. Joe Baca, D-Calif., is canceling his efforts to award Woods with a Congressional Gold Medal,…
