Found April 01, 2013 on With Leather:
It isn’t much of a big deal when rapper-turned-house-flipper Vanilla Ice shows up to perform at halftime for NBA games, because the artist otherwise known as Rob Van Winkle has done it before. But nevertheless I like it when he does, because it gives me a chance to complain about one of my guiltiest pleasures, The Vanilla Ice Project on DIY, thanks to the loosest of ties to sports.While I enjoy watching house flip shows, especially when they involve Q-list celebrities, VIP drives me nuts because he goes so amazingly overboard that I can’t imagine someone spending $1 million for one of his custom home renovations in South Florida. I mean, I know that people buy the homes, because wealthy people in South Florida are insane, but some of the perks that he adds to his homes just blow my mind.Take this season, for example. He’s working on a house that was abandoned for seven years and left to just completely rot against nature’s devices. The house sits on a huge lot with a giant lake behi...

Bucks Tuesday: Redick his own harshest critic

ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- J.J. Redick has been one of the most consistent shooters in the NBA the past seven seasons. A career 39.3 3-point shooter, Redick entered Monday's game against Charlotte shooting just 32.9 percent from beyond the arc since coming to the Bucks at the trade deadline.

Bucks’ Brandon Jennings calls out coach on Twitter

Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings took to Twitter after the team’s loss to the Thunder, questioning his coach Jim Boylan’s late-game timeout.

Bango helps returning soldier surprise kids

MILWAUKEE -- U.S. Army SPC Nicholas Neumuth hadn't seen his kids since May 2012.

During the first timeout in Saturday's game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Oklahoma City...

Today in Sports History : Bucks sign Kareem

On this day in 1969, the Milwaukee Bucks signed Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) to his first NBA contract. He would play for Milwaukee until 1975, then join the L.A. Lakers until his retirement in 1989. While Kareem’s career as a Laker is well-documented, his accomplishments as a Buck often go understated. With that said, here are some things you need to know about the Buck...

CC video of the day: NBA ref Kennedy in the right place at the wrong time

Call it hazards of the job but NBA ref Bill Kennedy was at the right place but at the wrong time. It was your typical tipoff like every tipoff this past season for the Bucks and Bobcats.
