Well, at least we know that Brandon McCarthy knows how to take a joke. The Diamondbacks’ newest pitcher apparently took care of getting his license renewed over the holiday break. There was just one problem, though: The local DMV got its letters mixed up. While McCarthy’s license correctly states that he’s 6-foot-7 and has hazel eyes (we think), the easy party — male or female — appears to have gotten adjusted during the renewal process. McCarthy’s wife, Amanda, was all over it. Something doesn't look right on Brandon's new license... http://t.co/QAr0AFBn— Amanda McCarthy (@Mrs_McCarthy32) December 28, 2012 Of all people to have such a mistake made on his driver’s license, though, Brandon McCarthy may be the guy. Last year, when he was involved in one of baseball’s scariest moments after being hit by a line drive, he bounced back by doing all kinds of joking, including some shenanigans his wife didn’t exactly approve of. He may be able to have some fun with this one, too.

Quote of the Day “Making it to the NFC Championship is not easy, and I think [Eagles fans are] starting to see that right now, that getting to the playoffs and going to the NFC Championship consistently, it’s just not that easy. There are teams right now who have winning records, like the Atlanta Falcons, they’ve done it for so many years, and they get to the playoffs and all of a sudden they’re one-and-done.” – Donovan McNabb, with some good analysis on the Eagles’ situation Tweet of the Day The Clippers get their sweet 16th. Yeah Clippers are for real, come back from 19 in 3rd, on a back to back.... Something special is a brewing!!!!— Reggie Miller (@ReggieMillerTNT) December 29, 2012 Video of the Day The Kings just wanted to wait until the buzzer to polish this one off.

  • Maybe he could play for Baylors women basketball
  • A mix-up in paperwork makes the news?
  • about the same as you
  • If he's in Arizona, why does he have a Texas license? I'm from Texas and that is a Texas license. Also, look in the upper corner. Right below "USA" is the state abbreviation "TX." Are we sure this is even for real.
  • Good question. My DL from Arizona has my pic in the lower right corner. Hmmmm.
  • Ummm...he's an Arizona Diamondback....doesn't mean he lives in Arizona, he may live in TX and therefore have a TX driver license
  • Where does it say he is in AZ? He PLAYS for them, but few ball players live off-season where they play ball. Too much moving around. Most pick a place they want to live, and that is where they keep their legal address. During the season they rent condos or bunk with a buddy who might live in that city year round.
  • It looks like a California Drivers License cause it looks like mine by the parts that are visible
  • Tax' are different in Texas. Check State Income Tax, also if your registering a vehicle in Arizona the plates cost more, so you keep it in Texas.
  • Man are you guys hard up for news.
  • Obummer has a Connecticut S.S. number, but that's OK. Lie, cheat, whatever it takes, if you're a Dem...
  • No where did it say he was getting an Arizona license. All it said was that he renewed his license which obviously it is from Texas.
  • OOPs! Some clerk is gonna get kidded about needing an eye test! LOL!!!
  • What are you folks worried about? Complaining about lame news IT'S SPORTS. It is meant to entertain you not give you life advice.
  • Is that all there is to a fire?
  • sheeeeeeshhhh............thats some top notch reporting there.....NOT ,im not a fan of the media AT ALL,most of the media are a bunch of morons.
  • enough with this idiotic headline/story. wtf
  • Just a note on a typo in this. " the easy party-" should be the easy part. I kind of found this funny from an article on a mix up.

RUMORS & GOSSIP

Falcons waive Shembo after report of animal cruelty charges

The Atlanta Falcons may not have done the right thing when they selected linebacker Prince Shembo in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL draft. But they sure did act in a timely manner by waiving the second-year linebacker mere hours after he was charged with felony animal cruelty in Georgia. In waiving Shembo, the Falcons had this to say: “We are aware of the charges that have...

Peterson is wrong (sorta): NFL players have great power

Adrian Peterson went on a Twitter rant yesterday.  Because when you plead out of a felony child abuse charge that makes you miss a season and then try to force your team to trade you, meeting your wants and needs is right at the top of everyone's list.  Although his outburst on social media certainly isn't going to change anything for himself, it's worth noting that some of AP...

Scout: A-Rod 'looks like he doesn't give a (expletive)'

All Alex Rodriguez had to do in order to be successful again was to stop caring. That might sound like a bad thing, but one advanced scout thinks the New York Yankees slugger has been able to revitalize his offensive game in large part because he stopped caring about all of the other things that come with being A-Rod. “He has the easiest swing I’ve ever seen from him,” an advance...

Belichick mum on Deflategate in first remarks since discipline

FOXBORO, Mass. — New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was cleared of any wrongdoing in the Wells Report, but he still indirectly received harsh punishment for Deflategate. The Patriots lost a first-round draft pick in 2016 and a fourth-rounder in 2017. His starting quarterback, Tom Brady, is currently suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season. Brady is appealing...

Dwight Howard suspended for first game of 2015-16 season

Even if the Houston Rockets had pulled off a win against the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, they would have likely been without center Dwight Howard for the following game. The NBA announced on Friday that Howard has been suspended for the first game of the 2015-16 season for throwing an elbow at Andre Iguodala. HOU's D. Howard has common foul...

Bucs veterans missing Jameis while he's at rookie symposium

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has apparently made a lasting impression on the team’s veterans after just a few practices. Winston is with the rest of the NFL’s rookies right now in Los Angeles for the Rookie Symposium, and his absence is being keenly felt on the practice field and in the locker room. Defensive end Jacquies Smith recently spoke about the...

Bulls GM: No teams asked to talk with Tom Thibodeau

Tom Thibodeau may be difficult to work with, but the Chicago Bulls are doing a better job of turning him into a sympathetic figure than they are of validating themselves for firing a head coach that reached the postseason every year he was in charge. Before the Bulls fired Thibodeau on Thursday and blasted him...Read More

Aaron Rodgers could take on more play-calling duties

Aaron Rodgers could have more control than ever running the Green Bay Packers offense this upcoming season. The team is undergoing a sort of transformation offensively this offseason with the play-calling duties falling now to Tom Clements. Head coach Mike McCarthy has been the man behind the mic, so to speak, since taking over in 2006. But an abundance of blunders caused him...
