LATEST STORIES FROM IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN DETROIT

One of the worst calls you’ll ever see in baseball

The play: Wednesday afternoon, Coors Field, Dodgers vs. Rockies — Dodgers utilityman Jerry Hairston, Jr. hit a ground ball to Rockies third baseman Chris Nelson’s left.  Nelson made a nice diving play, stood up and threw the ball wide to first base.  It was wide enough that Todd Helton, who is a pretty good defensive first baseman, realized he wasn’t going to catch it while...

Leyland uses charades for pinch runner signal

When Andy Dirks had to leave Tuesday’s game with a bum hamstring, Tigers’ skipper Jim Leyland needed a pinch runner. Since he was out near second base, he couldn’t just tell the 6’6″ 270 pound Brad Eldred to head out to replace Dirks. But, he could have had third base coach Gene Lamont relay the message. Or, he could have just played charades. He went with choice (B...

Eli Manning’s funny SNL promos

Eli Manning has proven that he can take the heat from large men chasing after him with the goal of hugging and rolling on top of him.  But can he handle the heat from the big stage of Saturday Night Live?  We’ll find that out this weekend.  Until then, we’ll have to judge him by the early game tape we have.

SICK HANDLES

Noah breaks Young's ankles on drive, kick

Thaddeus Young was trying to play defense on Joakim Noah during Game 2 of the Sixers-Bulls series when all the sudden he stopped. Young found himself on his butt in the middle of the lane just after Noah did a shimmy-shake on his way to the bucket. It couldn’t have been Noah’s nasty handles, could it? It couldn’t have been Noah’s hip and head fake, could it? We aren...

Calvin Johnson kills Letterman’s Top 10 list

Lions wide receiver and Madden ’13 cover boy Calvin Johnson was asked by David Letterman to give the Top 10 list last week.  The topic: “Advice for Young Athletes.” Listening closely, youngsters. 10. It helps to be 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds. 9. Accentuate brown eyes by playing for a team with green uniforms. 8. Trash talking is part of the game, but always follow up with an...

New York Rangers fan dances like a drunk hockey fan

It’s been proven that white guys don’t have the dancing gene.  This extremely sober New York Rangers fan is just another specimen in the study.  During the Rangers 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals in Game One of the Eastern Conference semi-finals, Happy McBaldy had some aggression to work off.Instead of yelling really loudly at Caps’ goalie Braden Holtby or clapping really...

Mrs. Irrelevant AKA Mrs. Chandler Harnish

Chandler Harnish, a quarterback from Northern Illinois was taken with the 253rd over pick in this past weekend’s NFL Draft.  The Indianapolis Colts made him the last pick in the draft, thus crowning him Mr. Irrelevant.  Now not only will he have to dodge Colts defenders in practice, he’ll need to dodge Mrs. Irrelevent who we came to know and love last week. Well, she’s baaaaack...

Reporter hits on David Freese during interview

I’ll admit that 2011 World Series MVP, Cardinals third baseman, David Freese isn’t an ugly-looking dude. But to the Julie Tristan, the host of KSDK’s “Show me St. Louis”, Freese is Brad Pitt, David Beckham and puppies all wrapped in one. Tristan did some fluff segment on a new ride at Six Flags St. Louis called Mr. Freeze. For some reason, Tristan took her interview...

Lions draft Albion College CB Chris Greenwood

The Detroit Lions drafted some bigger names from big-time schools this past weekend.  Three players from Oklahoma one from Iowa.  And they also took a couple from smaller schools – New Mexico State, Temple and Louisiana-Lafayette.  In the sixth round, they drafted a cornerback from Division III Albion College in Albion, Michigan.  His name is Chris Greenwood. Greenwood became...

Tim McCarver’s outrageous reasoning for the recent increase in home runs

Bigger, stronger players.  Better quality bats.  Tighter-wound baseballs.  Smaller parks.  Human Growth Hormone.  Steroids.  Each and every one of those reasons list could explain the increase in the amount of home runs that have been hit in recent times when compared to the past.  Tim McCarver, the color commentator for MLB on FOX, explained Saturday during the Brewers-Cardinals...

Patriots fan makes Mrs. Irrelevant parody – Mr. Relevant

The 2012 NFL Draft has come and gone.  We managed to survive almost being mock drafted to death, but somehow we made it.  And part of what helped us make it was Brianne from New York – a.k.a. Mrs. Irrelevant.  Brianne proposed a night alone with the last pick of the seventh round, unofficially dubbed Mr. Irrelevant.  That lucky man turned out to be Chandler Harnish, the former...

Michigan State’s “Sparty” plays in spring game

Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio has a hankering for trick plays.  And most of them work out well for the Spartans, but he failed miserably on his play call during the teams’ annual Green & White end-of-spring scrimmage Saturday. During the first quarter, Sparty, the MSU mascot lined up in the backfield and took a handoff from redshirt freshman quarterback...

Ben Wallace has played his last game as a Detroit Piston

I wasn’t even aware the NBA lockout ended.  But apparently, opponents will no longer have to “fear the ‘fro” in Detroit anymore.  Ben Wallace is retiring. And in other news, I had Honey Nut Cherrios for breakfast and it hurt like heck plucking three hairs from my right eye brow. Nice career, Ben.  Good luck in future endeavors.

Celebrity hotties do big Kentucky Derby hats

If we were to play word association and I said “liquor” and “most exciting two minutes”, you’d probably think I was describing a good Friday night with your girlfriend.  If I were to expand the game and say “mint julep” and “fastest two minutes in sports”,  it’d be a no-brainer, the Kentucky Derby. The 138th running of the Derby is next weekend and dozens of...

Novak Djokovic plays mini-tennis brilliantly

Some of the best things come in small packages – chicken wings, Lamborghinis and Mila Kunis prove that. Mini tennis can’t touch Mila Kunis. And I’d much rather eat chicken wings. But after watching this, you might agree with me that mini tennis is a lot cooler than a hotshot Lambo. The world’s number one Novak Djokovic got in a game of mini tennis with fellow Serbian...
