  1. PETA convinces yet more athletes to strip

    Nov 30, 2009, 4:36 PM EDT

    I see that PETA has now wrapped its claws around Phoenix Suns forward Amar’e Stoudemire, who’s the latest athlete to take off articles of clothing at the behest of the animal rights group. His message? Enjoy my tattoos, everyone. Oh, and also don’t wear fur. Following the jump, a famed figure skater also joins the…

  2. Football head trauma debate heats up after San Jose HS player left in coma

    Nov 30, 2009, 3:45 PM EDT

    Football head injuries are in the news once again, as you Steelers and Cardinals fans — and most of all you fantasy owners — surely know. But while Mike Tomlin’s roster shenanigans with Ben Roethlisberger and Kurt Warner’s occasional dizziness make for interesting dinner topics, a drama of a more somber, weighty sort is playing…

  3. White House party crasher chick infiltrated Redskins cheerleaders?

    Nov 30, 2009, 2:30 PM EDT

    It was in the film Zorro, the Gay Blade in which Bernardo, dressed as an aquatic animal, tries to sneak into to a costume party without an invitation, prompting the immortal line: “May I see your invitation, senor beaver?” Apparently it’s much easier to sneak into official White House functions, as seen pictured to the…

  4. All aboard the English soccer hooligan bus

    Nov 30, 2009, 1:00 PM EDT

    South Africa may be struggling to solve its problem with aggressive, panhandling monkeys, but they already seem to have a foolproof plan for thwarting English soccer hooligans, who are, after all, much simpler creatures. South African police have outfitted special buses to serve as mobile police stations for next year’s event, where troublemaking English fans…

  5. Tiger's Wild Ride, day four: Questions abound

    Nov 30, 2009, 11:30 AM EDT

    Was Tiger Woods simply headed to the local convenience store for some mustard relish when he inadvertently backed into a fire hydrant, hit a tree, and had to be rescued from his vehicle by his golf club-wielding wife? (Actual events may vary). The truth may never be known; Tiger’s strategy seems to be to stay…

  6. Tiger 911 call: Worst emergency call in history?

    Nov 30, 2009, 10:30 AM EDT

    It wasn’t long ago that the biggest controversy in Tiger Woods’ life was whether or not he farted. Remember that? Ah, those were the days. Now he’s refusing police interviews, TMZ is going through his garbage and there’s a dented tree and mangled fire hydrant out front of the house. Wasn’t that a scene in…

  7. Morning Tweet: Sports news from Canada that isn't hockey

    Nov 30, 2009, 9:15 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    The greatest quarterback comeback from yesterday? Many might say Vince Young leading the Titans past the Cardinals, and I’ll admit that was impressive. But what is all that gnashing of teeth and rending of garments far to the north? Must be Saskatchewan Roughriders fans; how could we forget that they played the Grey Cup yesterday?…

  8. If police are carrying RPGs, this must be Egypt-Algeria soccer

    Nov 27, 2009, 5:00 PM EDT

    On Wednesday we went over the lunacy that is the soccer rivalry between Turkish Super League teams Fenerbahce and Galatasaray, which some call the fiercest rivalry in sports. But while that series has earned its title over the long haul (it turned 100 years old this year), nothing much compares with the two World Cup…

  9. Alicia Sacramone, Brady Quinn and the athlete love conundrum

    Nov 27, 2009, 4:00 PM EDT

    Once again we visit the world of Jelisa Castrodale, who as luck would have it was speeding toward Cleveland when she received the assignment to write about Brady Quinn and Alicia Sacramone. The serendipidous result is below. Despite having a rad collection of R.E.M. concert t-shirts — and a willingness to use the word rad…

  10. Deion Sanders weighs in on shocking Goldy Gopher kid-trampling controversy

    Nov 27, 2009, 1:00 PM EDT

    As you’ve no doubt seen, the latest viral sports video involves a six-year-old football player who lays a couple of vicious hits in a Huntington (N.Y.) youth football game. But young Nyrel Sevilla may have met his match in Goldy Gopher, the University of Minnesota mascot who is not above trampling Pop Warner youngsters if…

  11. Floyd Mayweather gets his Oprah on, buys woman a new car in 15 minutes flat

    Nov 27, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    Remember when Floyd Mayweather Jr. used to make it rain with actual $100 bills? Yeah, those were the days; when we all used to scamper from Vegas club to Vegas club hoping to catch a c-note or two in our beer glasses. (Hey! This one’s fake!). Mayweather is still making it rain, apparently; but I…

  12. Morning Tweet: Thanksgiving leftovers with Ron Artest

    Nov 27, 2009, 9:00 AM EDT

    I’m no lawyer, but Ron Artest’s Thanksgiving Day Twitter diatribe against the state of Indiana — while pretty entertaining — doesn’t really seem very wise. Ron, as you may know by now, may be in a bit of serious doo-doo over allegations that he and his sister defrauded the government in a welfare scheme. While…

  13. Iverson has 'a change of heart' about retiring? What the Favre?

    Nov 26, 2009, 4:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Has Allen Iverson “pulled a Favre,” as it is known in athletic parlance? Stephen A. Smith, who first reported that the Memphis Grizzlies’ guard had announced his plans to retire, is now writing that Iverson “may have had a change of heart” about the whole thing. The problem is that this development is buried deep…

  14. Ron Artest, sister in welfare fraud scheme?

    Nov 26, 2009, 2:30 PM EDT

    Look, everyone is innocent until proven guilty. But Ron Artest is the guy who, as a rookie with the Chicago Bulls, once applied for a job at Circuit City so that he could get the employee discount. So is it possible that he directed his sister, Latoya Holmes-Ivey, to apply for welfare even though he…

  15. Aquatic as you wanna be: Disney unamused with Oregon Duck rap

    Nov 25, 2009, 6:30 PM EDT

    So some University of Oregon students have produced a rap video which praises their football team, and the thing has gone way viral … but you knew that. The video is pretty wholesome, but the problem is that the Oregon Duck mascot appears in it. And this has angered the frozen ghost of Walt Disney.…

  16. Brazen monkey gangs threaten to derail World Cup. Seriously

    Nov 25, 2009, 5:45 PM EDT

    The 2010 World Cup in South Africa is almost here, and many people I know are boasting that they are already planning the trip. Sounds like fun, except for the vicious monkeys. According to several reports, marauding gangs of baboons have been terrorizing Cape Town and other South African cities for years, and the problem…

  17. Hot blonde twins on USA women's hockey team? Yes, please

    Nov 25, 2009, 4:20 PM EDT

    The 21-member USA women’s hockey team to compete in the 2010 Winter Olympics will be named on Dec. 17, and I have my fingers, toes and my dog’s paws crossed in hopes that Jocelyne (on the right) and Monique Lamoureux both make it. Because what in the history of the world has ever failed to…

  18. Drive-by painting of Bruin Bear shakes UCLA campus, launches shenanigan war

    Nov 25, 2009, 3:30 PM EDT

    As Otter once said, this war could take years, and cost thousands of lives. USC’s Tommy Trojan statue is under around-the-clock guard at this hour after vandals from that school struck against UCLA’s beloved Bruin bear statue, in the runup toward Saturday’s 79th football showdown between the rivals. Located in the middle of the Westwood…

  19. My Bodyguard: Mick Foley, Jon Stewart jump to defense of young gay-rights activist

    Nov 25, 2009, 2:30 PM EDT

    Jon Stewart is on vacation this week, but I had missed his inspired segment on gay rights that originally aired this past Thursday, so last night’s rerun was a fresh show to me. If you haven’t seen it — and even if you have — I recommend taking a look at the video following the…

  20. Tiger Woods stepping out on wife? Inconceivable!

    Nov 25, 2009, 12:30 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    In a story due to come out Dec. 7, Michael Glynn of the National Enquirer reports that Tiger Woods has been involved in a rather lengthy affair with a former television producer and New York nightclub hostess named Rachel Uchitel. The sad part of it is that this story actually seems solid; begging the question,…
