Terribly Awesome Baseball Card: Luis Aquino

If you look closely at Luis Aquino’s Mr. T starter kit, one of the charms says “Tony.” Before your gaydar starts going haywire, I’ve done the research and found that Luis’s middle name is Antonio. Cancel the Mike Piazza-style press conference. Aaron Rodgers and Luis Aquino both “really, really like women.” Aquino has the flamboyance to rock a mullatino hairdo, coupled...

Kobe Bryant Rapping: A.W.F.U.L.

At the turn of the century, it seemed like everyone was a fan of Kobe Bryant, the NBA’s heir apparent to MJ. That is until we heard the horrific news that would forever taint the public perception of the once beloved star. Of course I’m referring to the news that Kobe had released a rap single. It’s been nearly fifteen years since I first listened to this horrendous recording...

Don’t Fake The Funk On A Nasty East Bay Funk Dunk

Kudos to this hoopster for rocking an Isaiah Rider Timberwolves jersey. It’s more rare than a Baby Jordan Heat jersey yet memorable enough to get you plenty of dap. The NBA needs more players like Isaiah Rider. He came into the league and guaranteed that he’d win the NBA Slam Dunk Contest. What happened next was something called the East Bay Funk Dunk. Swag on JR. Shout out...

NFL Sports Trivia Quiz: Training Camp Edition

Football season is finally on our doorstep, and it could not have come soon enough. Training camps opened up last weekend, and it’s only a matter of time until we see the likes of Ed Werder reporting from Dallas, Sal Pal reporting from Philly, Holly Rowe reporting from Minnesota, and Hank Goldberg reporting from Miami about a Pro-Bowler blowing out his ACL while walking to lunch...

Braylon Wanted A Patty Melt

This Braylon Edwards Browns jersey is so craptacular that it needs to be tucked into a pair of jeans to hide how how fully craptacular it really is. No doubt this guy read our article on if you had to purchase a Browns jersey from the clearance rack and opted for the Braylon Edwards after the Colt McCoy’s were sold out. Shout out to @BernacK6 for capturing this jersey plus coming...

Derek Jeter RE2PECT Parody of A-Rod

Derek Jeter is awesome and A-Rod is as likable as a rusty nail sandwich. The Derek Jeter RE2PECT video was pretty baller. Leave it to some funny people to parody that bad boy up with A-Rod as the centerpiece. In case you were wondering, A-Rod has made over $356,000,000 in his career and has 24 more career home runs than Ken Griffey Jr (654 vs 630). He was selected one pick ahead...

Little Giants: Where Are They Now?

“Spike don’t play with girls!” Don’t pretend you don’t know exactly where that line came from. If you were breathing air in the 90s, you loved Little Giants as much as I did. Is there anything better than Junior Floyd tossing toilet paper into shopping carts? My mom totally got mad at me for recreating that scene at our local Giant Eagle when I was six. Busted that move...

Terribly Awesome Baseball Card: Rollie Fingers

As I write more and more of these posts, it is becoming evident that there is a clear checklist of what makes a Terribly Awesome Card. There are rare exceptions, but I think it is safe to state that a card should contain at least one of these qualities to be considered Terribly Awesome: Marvelous Moustache Magnificent Mullet Idiotic Facial Expression Comical Name Interesting Prop...

LeBron James Sucks. No Wait, He Rocks

Looks like Drew Carey isn’t the only funny Cavs fan in town. This LeBron Sucks Rocks jersey reminds me of this great scene from Dumb and Dumber. H/T to Jr Ortiz for the find. [related-posts] The post LeBron James Sucks. No Wait, He Rocks appeared first on Bacon Sports.

From Heat Nation: Thank You LeBron

I needed a night to digest this whole thing, and waking up today I’m still disappointed. However, I am not shocked at LeBron James’s choice to head back to Cleveland. I think it says a lot when a player chooses a franchise that is paying him less money (remember, Miami has no income tax), has proven to have an inept front office (you have to be pretty darn bad to get three number...

The King is Back: How’s My Ass Taste Miami

The King is back!!! HOLY FREAKING S**T!! It has been two hours since the news broke that the Berlin Wall came down LeBron James is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. I literally can not describe the feeling to you. I cannot settle down. Adrenaline through the roof, body still shaking, cannot sit still, texting and phone calls galore. This has to be what Michael Irvin used to feel...

MLB All-Star Game Trivia

The slowest time of the sports calendar is upon us. While Cleveland fans, and NBA fans in general, are continuously refreshing www.lebronjames.com to see where he is headed, and football fans are just beginning to think about fantasy drafts, the MLB All-Star game is quietly creeping up on us. I, for one, look forward to the All-Star game (although the HR Derby is unwatchable with...

A Letter to Johnny Manziel from the Future Johnny Manziel

Breaking news: Johnny Manziel likes to hang with celebrities. Oh, snap, you already knew that. By now we’ve all seen Mrs. Heisman’s latest epic selfie with the Biebs, Tyson Beckford and Floyd “Money” Mayweather, thanks to an eruption in the Twittersphere. With all this attention, though, I can’t help but wonder, how will Johnny Football feel about his shenanigans in 40...

Terribly Awesome Basketball Card: Danny Ferry

Before Cherokee Parks, there was Christian Laettner. Before Christian Laettner, there was Danny Ferry, who led the Blue Devils to three Final Four appearances. The generic blank jersey in the photo made this 1990 Fleer card a bit of a novelty. Fleer was forced to edit out the name from the jersey because Duke University would not give the proper permission for the name to be used...

Shaq Rapping: I Know I Got Skillz

Shaq has always been a bit of a lovable clown and his rap career has plenty of cheesy moments to support that reputation. Even so, Shaq belongs near the top of any Raplete Ranking. That is a testament of how weak the competition, but it is also a matter of giving proper respect where it is due. O’Neal’s debut album Shaq Diesel went platinum. No other raplete comes close to matching...

A Wrigley Experience Unlike Any Other

With the Pirates in town and me being from Pittsburgh, it was a perfect opportunity for G-Hunt and I to head up to Wrigleyville and show you all what a true Wrigley experience is like.
