Found September 14, 2012 on Busted Coverage:
Here at BC we are always fans of seeing random athletes partying. You can imagine our excitement when we stumbled across this gem on Twitter. Yes, that is Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte on the left with a lame shaggy hair cut. Before he was a media darling he had the “long hair, don’t care” mentality and enjoyed drinking vodka and cranberry. This photo recently surfaced on Twitter via @fortheuyen and also features NFL wide receiver Riley Cooper!
Yeah, that other long-haired surfer bro on the right is none other than Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper. No, we don’t have any idea who the bro in the orange polo is. Last week @fortheyuen tweeted out the photo with the following message: FYI Grog is a popular bar in Gainesville, and Cooper actually responded to Uyen moments later: You might be wondering how these two ended up partying together? Well both Lochte and Cooper are Florida grads and overlapped one year. Lochte was a senior in 2006 and Cooper was a freshman. One thing leads to another and the swim team star and random football freshman were throwing back drinks at Grog. Go figure. P.S. Riley Cooper had some crazy stats as a freshman…4 catches, 92 yards, 3 touchdowns! [@RileyCooper_14] [@ryanlochte]

Michael Vick talks about getting over the Cleveland game

This week has been a rough one for Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. All things considered it has not been his toughest but it has been pretty hard. His opening day performance even in the face of victory was not less-than-stellar. There were the turnovers and the lack of points on the board that this jet-powered offense is supposed to create. To have this happen against the lowly...

Philadelphia Eagles Week 2: Can They Beat a Quality Opponent?

Michael Vick and the offense along with DeMeco Ryans and the defense face their first true test of the 2012 season when they play the Ravens on Sunday. The Eagles haven’t played a team that could be described as “good” since Week 12 of the 2011 season when they faced the New England Patriots.  Unfortunately, Vince Young was our starting QB that day so it’s tough to say whether...

Eagles missing top receivers Thursday

Eagles wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson missed Thursday's practice with injuries. Head coach Andy Reid said Maclin (hip) and Jackson (hamstring) would not participate but could still play in Sunday's game against the Ravens. Maclin has a hip pointer, and remains extremely tender, Reid said. Jackson's hamstring injury is not considered serious but...

Philadelphia Eagles offense prepares to address concerns in Week 2

The Philadelphia Eagles face the Baltimore Ravens in their home opener on Sunday.  The usual feeling of excitement leading up to game day surrounds the team, as do a number of questions. Is there reason to worry about Mike Vick or is what we witnessed in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns a fluke? Can the Eagles offense eliminate the errors and turn on their high-octane weapons...

Eagles odds and ends – Maclin injured, Gilyard back, Ravens up next

Andy Reid announced after a skin-of-your teeth win against Cleveland in week 1 that wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has a hip pointer. Maclin caught 7 passes Sunday for 96 yards and was the Eagles best receiver. The fact that he was even able to play the whole game was a small victory. Maclin got roughed up on two plays, and was shaken up both times. He sat out a down after the first...

Eagles' Jason Babin fined $15,750 for roughing Browns QB Brandon Weeden

The Philadelphia Eagles Jason Babin who is no stranger to getting fined, has again received a hefty punishment from the NFL front office. Like last year for roughing Alex Smith and being charged with $15,000, this year Babin was fined $15,750, which is a 5% increase from last year with the new collective bargaining agreement. From what he was quoted saying last year, the way he...

This game will be the home opener for the Eagles at 1 pm Sunday. Eagles Offense vs. Ravens...
