The second season of NBA TV’s critically acclaimed series Open Court does not premiere until Oct. 9, but video has surfaced of some behind-the-scenes hilarity that occurred when Charles Barkley dozes off on the set, much to the delight and hooting and hollering of his cohorts, Reggie Miller, Kenny Smith and Chris Webber. Round Mound of Rebound? [...]
Obviously, whether or not Michael Vick is currently a dog owner would certainly cause a fair share of discussion. And if it were true, Vick would be on the receiving end of endless criticism and even absolute condemnation from individuals fervently against the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback ever being responsible for the care of another dog in light [...]
In one of the better ways imaginable to kick-off a Friday, additional images have surfaced on the interwebs from Kate Upton’s photo spread in the Nov. 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan, including one where she appears topless, supplementing the one that emerged earlier this week where Miss Kate Upton is rocking a killer pair of Daisy Dukes [...]

During his match against No. 9-ranked player Janko Tipsarevic at the Japan Open on Thursday, Swiss tennis player Marco Chiudinelli briefly halted their match to ask his opponent to wake up a spectator in the stands behind Tipsarevic who was nodding off. Why? Apparently, the fact that this fan was not enthralled with the match [...]
Everybody loves themselves some Gus Johnson histrionics. But would you love it as much if you were sharing the broadcast booth and a bomb was strapped to his back and he was about to explode? Or if he was a robot that had a bomb strapped to its back and the robot bomb was set [...]
For the umpteenth time, the gorgeous Arianny Celeste was featured in some magazine you may or may not have ever heard of. And again, for the umpteenth time, I have made the editorial decision to publish said stunning photos. This time, Arianny shows off the goods in the current issue of The Stndrd, the debut [...]
On Wednesday night, the New York Yankees, as is baseball tradition, celebrated their American League East title with some champagne-dumping shenanigans in the clubhouse. Ichiro, who joined the Yankees on July 23 after he requested a trade from the Seattle Mariners after 11+ highly productive seasons with the team, was the victim of a champagne [...]
The woeful Houston Astros were wrapping up another horrible season on Wednesday when a play occurred that in its essence signified just how miserable things have become down in Texas. About to ring up a the team’s 107th loss this season, the play in question certainly put an exclamation point on it. Or maybe a [...]

Nike previously issued a grandiose press release touting the new shoe and the man who is paid a boatload of money to wear and endorse them, but on Thursday, unveiled a brand-spanking new video starring LeBron [...]
It’s been a hectic morning here at the Sportress of Blogitude’s secret headquarters, so while we play catch-up here, how about you guys enjoy this amusing video of people wiping out while attempting to perform the incredibly pedestrian task of rolling a bowling ball? It’s quite the hoot, perhaps even worthy of a guffaw or [...]
It should come as no surprise to anyone that the budding relationship between New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez and Eva Longoria generated a lot of headlines since the rumors began floating some time ago up through Longoria’s admission that the two were involved. A high-profile quarterback playing in New York dating a high-profile actress [...]
On Tuesday, the interwebs exploded due to the emergence of an animated GIF starring Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke, who originally turned heads back in August with her sultry and seductive pre-race dance routine, warming up prior to a race, doing her sexy little thing…in the rain. Well, good news, true believers and online oglers: thanks [...]
Liam Neeson, one of the finest actors in show business, has been undertaking what I’m sure is the grueling-but-have-to-do-it task of an aggressive media tour to promote the release of his new film, Taken 2. For some reason, the folks at ESPN brought him on for an appearance on Thursday morning’s SportsCenter. During his back-and-forth with SportsCenter anchor guy [...]
On Wednesday, a heartwarming story emerged about how Oakland A’s relief pitcher Pat Neshek went from celebrating a playoff berth with the team to racing cross-country to witness the birth of his son in Florida. Tragically, the story has a heart-wrenching ending: Neshek tweeted Wednesday night that little Gehrig John Neshek had passed away, a [...]
During the top of the 12th in the extra-inning affair between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox in the Bronx on Tuesday night briefly was delayed in large part to the Yankee Stadium grounds crew member’s inability to corral a bird that set up a temporary nesting spot in the infield. Despite several [...]
AT LONG LAST!
At long last, the longest losing streak in the history of presidential mascot racing at major league ballparks, Teddy, the much-maligned member of the racing presidents who compete during every Nationals home game at Nationals Park — and before that, RFK Stadium — who has never won a race, finally triumphed, edging out the other [...]
For reasons I am unable to understand, Justin Bieber is highly regarded in the sports world. Evidence of this troubling and perplexing reality would require far too long to properly document — also, I just don’t care enough about it to muster up the motivation to do it — but a few such examples for [...]
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was poked in the eye by New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins during the Pack’s big win on Sunday, forcing Rodgers to leave the game for treatment.

GIFT OF GAS
The Orlando Magic know they will miss Dwight Howard, but not for reasons that you might think.
Granted, what follows isn’t the highest quality of video, but even though it is substandard, the message deciphered from viewing it reads loud and clear: slow motion video of this rather portly, somewhat older LSU Tigers fan boogeying down while celebrating during LSU’s game against Towson last weekend is oddly — and more importantly, disturbingly hypnotic. Don’t [...]
What a day, my wife is now in labor!#playoffbaby — Pat Neshek (@PatNeshek) October 2, 2012 Oakland Athletics reliever Pat Neshek was probably a bundle of nerves and going through a multitude of emotions on Monday. Not only did the A’s clinch a playoff berth for the first time since 2006 with a 4-3 win [...]
One could reasonably argue that Bobby Valentine’s brief tenure as the manager of the Boston Red Sox has been an unmitigated disaster. And that might be putting it mildly. The Red Sox essentially have been irrelevant for the entirety of the season and that’s only half of the story of Valentine’s sublimely craptastic odyssey he has endured [...]
On July 18, veteran guard Jason Terry signed a three-year deal with the Boston Celtics for approximately $15 million.
