Patrick Bateman would be crazy jealous over Vandy coach’s business cards (pic)

There are regular business cards and then, man, there are “Sweet mercy, check out these bad boys!” kind of business cards. The business cards of one James Franklin, the head football coach for the Vanderbilt Commodores, certainly fall in the latter category. Holy moly, those are the kind of cards that would really impress the attractive wives of prospective assistant coaches...

Today in ‘When farts are mentioned in mainstream sports journalism’

Obviously, one does not need to look too far or search too wide to find fart references in non-traditional sports media, be that blogs or what have you. A well-crafted fart reference is a generally accepted, perhaps even encouraged, means through which a blogger can cogently, yet somewhat sophomorically, illustrate his or her point. Which provides ample reason behind why, as I perused...

‘The NFL: A Bad Lip-Reading’ is about as good as it gets (video)

Since this requires virtually no setup, I am, uh, not going to set it up. Just this: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson supposedly saying, “Egg roll, I wish I had a breeze running down my leg. I’d kill for a cookie. Sting-ray a double-sided Scooby Snack” to Pam Oliver is well worth the price of admission, and that’s only the first one in nearly three minutes of...

Suns forward Michael Beasley blames missed free throws on ‘those gremlins’ (video)

Throughout his multiple stops during his erratic NBA career, current Phoenix Suns forward Michael Beasley has always been looked upon as a player with untapped potential. He also frequently has been looked upon as something of an oddball, an eccentric man with a lot of talent. That makes Beasley’s recent comments about “gremlins” interfering with his free throw attempts not...

Dirk Nowitzki bobblehead launched nearly 95,000 feet up into atmosphere (video)

While longtime Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki may be getting up there in years, video was released by the team on Tuesday that shows a bobblehead facsimile of the German veteran getting up there…into the Earth’s atmosphere, even. Sure, like Nowitzki, the Mavericks roster is not what it used to be during Dirk’s heyday, and the team is plodding along thus far this season...

Jacquizz Rodgers is a second-year running back for the Atlanta Falcons out of Oregon State. And while he may not be a household name just yet, he has a name that nevertheless is certainly unique, one that sticks in your head upon hearing it. Speaking of things sticking, Rodgers was photographed rocking a t-shirt that bears a message incorporating “Quizz,” the nickname he goes...

John Rocker: The Holocaust never would have happened if the Jews had guns

Given his outspoken nature and unorthodox views expressed in the past, it’s not surprising that John Rocker has expressed his opinion about gun control and his interpretation of the rights afforded to citizens by the Second Amendment. It’s even less surprising that the former MLB closer, who is perhaps known best for a controversial 1999 interview with Sports Illustrated, recently...

Paulina Gretzky and new beau Dustin Johnson still canoodling in Hawaii (photos)

Since SoB has been chronicling the budding romance between PGA Tour star Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky since rumors first started flying about a week or so ago, the thought here is that some photos of the new and happy couple canoodling in Hawaii might as well be passed along, too. As has been covered previously, Gretzky was spotted hanging with Johnson prior to last week...

These awkward pics of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are all kinds of awesome

Tiger Woods and his newly minted Nike Golf protégé, Rory McIlroy, shared an awkward moment while making a boatload of cash for appearing at the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in the United Arab Emirates. During some amusingly conceived photo-op, Woods and McIloy, who were paired together in the first round of the tourney, are poured a drink from a ornate carafe. But what occurred...

Fan escorted from courtside seat for heckling during Heat-Jazz game (video)

Details are sketchy as to exactly what caused an usher to escort this nattily attired fan from his pricy courtside seat during the Miami Heat-Utah Jazz tilt at EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City on Monday, but Dwyane Wade’s presence nearby prompts speculation that he had something to do with it. The guy, not surprisingly, appeared none too pleased with his removal and can...

The NHL lockout turned Sidney Crosby into a middle-aged woman (photo)

Oh my goodness. Clearly, the stresses and lack of activity and absence of competition had a severe impact on Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby. At least if we are to believe this image from a television news report which indicates that the middle-aged woman on the screen is in fact Sid the Kid and that the toll of the lockout has transformed the superstar into this shell of...

‘Kaepernicking’: Like ‘Copernicussing,’ only without the heresy accusations (photos)

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had a performance for the ages on Saturday as he led his team to a dominant 45-31 divisional playoff victory over the Green Bay Packers. In the process, Kaepernick completely dismantled the Packers defense, rushing for 181 yards and  two touchdowns and proving that he is not a one-dimensional running threat, added two passing TDs...

Panties allegedly signed by Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas can be had for $1 (pic)

A recent listing uploaded to Denver Craigslist purports to be offering up — for the rock bottom price of $1, mind you — a pair of panties that the seller claims to have been signed by Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. I imagine there are countless listings on Craigslist all over this land where the poster of the listing is attempting to sell different sorts of odd...

Paulina Gretzky goes public with new beau

In what has been a days-long effort at tracking the possibility that Paulina Gretzky, the blond bombshell daughter of The Great One, Wayne Gretzky, and PGA Tour golfer Dustin Johnson are dating has finally yielded nearly unquestionable confirmation that they are, in fact, an item. Throughout the past week or so, speculation has been rampant that Gretzky and Johnson were in the initial...

Video of unhinged meltdown by Vikings fan likely fake, but still worth a watch (video)

No Minnesota Vikings fan was in the best of spirits last weekend as they watched their favorite NFL football team, led on offense by an inept Joe Webb, crap the bed in its wild card match-up with the rival Green Bay Packers. Still, this fella’s over-the-top, manic, coffee table-destroying meltdown is one for the ages. If it’s real. Which it is probably not. Egad. That’s some...

Previously pigment-challenged train wreck (he seems to be doing better now on that front) and former MLBer Sammy Sosa may have not garnered enough votes that would have led to his induction into the Hall of Fame, but even before he heard the disappointing news, he was already laying the groundwork for bigger and better things. Or something. You see, Sosa has been hard at work building...
