Late Tuesday night, Miguel Cabrera tried that will work in dozens (hundreds?) of Little League games across the country this summer. Too bad for Miggy, A’s outfielder Billy Burns graduated from Little League about 15 years ago.
Per usual, Miggy was able to laugh it off and even gave the dugout a bow for their response.
Golf Channel’s Holly Sonders lowered herself to the level of the dudes whose weekends are dependent on their cheesy pick-up lines. There’s no doubt that Sonders received a handful of these from frat dorks while she golfed at Michigan State. There’s also no doubt that I could sit here for the rest of the week and watch Sonders read anything she wanted to read. That...
During a recent workout, Shaquille O’Neal needed some extra weight for his cable row. So naturally, he tossed TNT colleague Chris Webber on the weight and proceeded with his routine.
Webber, who looks lighter than his listed weight of 245 during his playing days, still contributed his massive ego to Shaq’s lifting cause.
A video posted by Chris...

Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria and punter Sam Martin hit the Detroit version of extinct MTV show “Pimp my Ride” with Xzibit. The two hit up Dynamic Customs Detroit to get their Audi and Land Rover, respectively, done up nice.
Fauria’s Audi A7 L received the following: bright white 22″ rims, gloss black roof, blue...

There is no doubt the Florida State baseball team threw a party after winning the ACC Baseball Championship Sunday. But for sophomore first baseman Quincy Nieporte, the party started after he doubled with two outs in the fifth inning.
It wasn’t to lead off the inning. He didn’t knock in a run. It didn’t send the North Carolina State pitcher to...
David Price posted a photo to Twitter Friday of his new spikes, thanks to fellow Detroit stud athlete, Calvin Johnson. Megatron’s people apparently didn’t do their homework prior to the gift-giving, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
I can only imagine what lucky Detroit athlete will be getting Price’s socks.
Pay it forward, David.
Classy gesture by new Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock. Bye Felicia.
During Wednesday’s Big Ten Tournament loss to Maryland, the Michigan State baseball team enjoyed manager Jake Boss’ in-game interview. The team, which has grown “dirt ‘staches” (for lack of a better term, and, because that’s exactly what they are) showed their affinity for bananas with a synchronized performance.
Wednesday afternoon, University of Michigan centerfielder Jackson Glines make a Jim Edmonds-like catch which earned him SportsCenter’s top play. Michigan beat Indiana and will face Iowa in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday.
YouTube publisher Michael Evans took video of workers on the Ambassador Bridge walking along a tight-rope about 120-some yards in the air. Take an entire football field and turn it vertical. That’s how high this guy was in the air, walking on a wire to get back down. The crew is inspecting the bridge and performing upgrades. My stomach is performing upchucks...
Tom Brady had to go and cheat to allow musicians to come out of the woodwork and sing “Free Brady” songs like they’re auditioning for The Voice. This one, sung by former American Idol contestant Ayla Brown, is about as good as you would think it might be. Except for it’s worse.
Did I mention that Ms. Brown’s father Scott was a Massachusetts senator for...
Prior to Wednesday’s series finale against the Brewers, the Tigers clubhouse was adorned by t-shirts with a photo of Brad Ausmus and “Dreamy” below his mug. Someone on Twitter said that Tigers hitting coach Wally Joyner ordered them.
It’s good to see the team is still loose (I guess) after two straight to the second-worst team in the Major Leagues. When asked about the...
There is no secret that the Maple Leafs are the top dogs in Toronto. They surpass the Blue Jays and they definitely surpass the CFL’s Argonauts. During a major press conference for the Argos Wednesday, (Larry Tanenbaum, chairman of the Maple Leaf Sports Network) has purchased the team and will relocate it to BMO Field), the Leafs’ hiring of Mike Babcock caused...
Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry pumped in 34 points in their Game 1 win against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals. But, it was Curry’s two-year old daughter who won the night during the postgame press conference.
Your honor, I would like to make a motion that mandates players to have their kids at otherwise mundane (snoozefest) post game pressers.
It’s surprising to me that Ndamukong Suh didn’t list his Birmingham, Michigan house some time last year. He knew he was leaving Detroit. The 7,394-square-foot home at 855 Pleasant Street that he bought in 2012 could be yours for $3.45 million. The highlights include a five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, three half baths and a three car garage. The lowlights include...
Remember when Justin Verlander called out the “haters” for picking on him for not rehabbing his achy wing 24/7? Like anyone, JV deserves his free time and what he does in his free time is his business. His business happens to be making out with girlfriend Kate Upton in the middle of St. Louis this past weekend.
The Tigers were in town visiting the Cardinals and McBoobs was on...
Former Major League second baseman Damion Easley is selling his baseball-themed Glendale, Arizona mansion for $5.5 million. And, I want it.
The 15,000-square-foot house with and indoor batting cage, a miniature outdoor ball diamond, one bedroom with a scoreboard, another room with a Tiger Stadium mural, and shower tiles in a few of the house’s eight-and-a-half bathrooms form...

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott tweeted out some toilet humor over the weekend about the Michigan Wolverines. A block ‘M’ in a urinal.
I’m guessing this pissed off a few people in Ann Arbor. Pun intended.
The Iowa baseball team has a freshman infielder named Fenway Parks. He redshirted this season for he second-seeded team in the Big Ten Tournament. Shockingly, he isn’t from Boston, but rather Boca Raton, Florida.
Fenway Parks. I guess that’s better than State Parks or Double Parks. Just barely.

His name is Jordan Kilganon, he’s 6’1″ and he’ll forever be remembered for his “Lost and Found” dunk. In the midst of a 360, Kilganon brings the ball behind his back near his waist, tossing it up to himself so it’s near the rim as he completes his twist.
It’s one of the more creative dunks I’ve seen in some time. The YouTube publisher is trying to...
After being on the market for three years, the asking price for Michael Jordan’s Highland Park (Illinois) mansion has gone from $29 million down to $14.855 million after a recent $1.145 million markdown.
56,000 square feet and a front gate that includes a large 23, you would think that someone would have pounced by now. But that obviously hasn’t been the case. MJ has been a...
The content of this interview is not the least bit important here. Watch the clown behind the reporter. “Hey, there’s an unattended tablet. It must be mine.” Per Bleacher Report, the guy is a fan of Argentine football club Independiente. Fans who are “members” of the club are allowed into press conferences after games. They are apparently allowed complimentary...
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was on ‘Celebrity Jeopardy’ Tuesday and won $50,000 for MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer), the charity of his choice.
As if that donation wasn’t good enough (it certainly was), he got Alex Trebek to do Rodgers patented “Discount Double Check” celebration. And I’ll be darned if he didn’t throw out his back.
…and they should not have zoomed in that far. That’s all. I have nothing of substance to add.
But seriously, it’s pretty creepy.
It was all fun and games Tuesday on the MLB Network set until former Major Leaguer Sean Casey drilled co-worker Lauren Shehadi with a line drive. Shehadi fed him an underhand soft toss during live segment. Casey smashed one back up the box and then charged Shehadi for some cheap feels.
I’d say it was a good day at the office for Mr. Casey. (For more of Ms. Shehadi...
