ESPN website does it again-uses word “Gook” in headline

February 29, 2012

Good news: ESPN hasn’t used the word “chink” in a headline in two weeks

Bad news: They have used the word “Gook”

Holy crap! Just weeks ago,  The Worldwide Leader had to fire multiple employees and suffer the wrath of the Asian-American community over the use of the word “chink” in a headline. Now, ESPN has screwed up even worse.

Tuesday, they found a way to get “Gook” into an online headline.

Beckett to Red Sox teammates: Stop Snitching

February 29, 2012

Do you know what the problem is with America today? There’s NO SHAME.

For instance, Boston Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett should die of shame. The fat, chicken-eating drunken choker is one of the main reasons the Red Sox pulled off one of the biggest choke jobs in baseball history last season. On October 12th, the Boston Globe detailed how Beckett and fellow Boston hurlers John Lackey and Jon Lester behaved abhorrently last September. They ate chicken and drank beer during games and often snuck out of the dugout during Red Sox games, abandoning their teammates to do so.

Fenway fans were appalled. News of the pitchers’ behavior cost Boston manager Terry Francona his job. Keep in mind Francona not only won the Red Sox first World Series title in nine decades, he won TWO World Championships. Yet, more than any other human being, Beckett’s drunken, slovenly behavior cost Francona his job.

Now, there’s a new sheriff in town. One of new manager Bobby Valentine’s first actions was to ban alcohol from the Boston clubhouse this season. Keep in mind the ban is almost entirely Beckett’s fault. Instead of manning up and keeping his mouth shut, Beckett is reacting with rage. Against “snitches.”

In an interview on radio station WEEI’s website, Beckett opens Spring Training talking about the Red Sox beer/alcolhol ban saying: “This is stupid. I don’t see what the big deal is. Somebody was trying to save their own ass, and it probably cost a lot of people their asses. The snitching shit, that’s bullshit.”

Eloquently put. What a clueless idiot.

Beckett can’t claim he was misquoted. The entire interview is on tape. He is getting torched for his snitches-get-stitches attitude. In the “comments”section of an article on the topic, the portly, chicken chewing pitcher is being called a “douchebag.” Beckett is also being labled “cream puff,” “clown,” and “arrogant bastard.”

Yes! Acquitted (by technicality) PED user Ryan Braun addresses the herpes rumors

February 24, 2012

At today’s completely indignant press conference, a defiant and condescending Ryan Braun lashed out at Major League Baseball for their idiotic drug testing chain of custody policies.

You’ll recall that just days after being named the National League MVP it was reported that Braun faced a possible 50 games suspension for a positive PED/steroid test. Braun denied ever taking performance enhancing drugs and immediately appealed his positive drug test.

An MLB arbitor overturned Braun’s suspension yesterday. The suspension was overturned primarily because rather than sealing Braun’s urine test and immediately mailing it off to the lab, the official MLB drug tester took the piss home with him for the weekend and stuck it in the fridge. Seriously!

However, one of the most interesting aspects of the story is at today’s press conference Braun INSISTED to address the Ryan-Braun-has-herpes rumors that have been circling the Internet. Yes, Braun himself made it a point to say he’s never had an STD. On record in front of a bank of microphones.

See for yourself. It’s at the 3:48 mark of this tape:

Most blatant example of Jeremy Lin racism yet

February 18, 2012

Several articles have been written about the blatant examples of racism in articles surrounding New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin. Obviously, somebody at ESPN wasn’t thinking when they posted the online headline “Chink in The Armor” in reference to the Asian point guard.

Wow!

College star cut in Europe for taking penis enlargement pills

February 13, 2012

Roburt Sallie

During this time of year you may remember former University of Memphis star Roburt Sallie. If you’re a March Madness fan, you’ll recall Sallie had a huge game in the NCAA college basketball tournament a couple years back when he hit a bunch of three point shots and scored 35 points in onegame early in the tournament.

If you remember Sallie at all it’s probably for his March Madness heroics. It’s the main reason he’s remembered at all. UNTIL NOW.

Sallie was recently cut by the European League team he was playing for in Spain. Ordinarily, not a huge story until you find out that the reason Sallie was released was for taking penis enlargement pills.

Sallie was apparently gobbling up ExtetenZe tablets like Chiclets. ExtenZe you’ll recall is the herbal penis enlargement pill that was endorsed by former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson in a series of tv and radio commercials a couple of years ago. Sallie apparently never told his ballclub he was taking the ExtenZe and not wanting a positive drug test over higher testosterone rates, Sallie’s team cut him.

A number of blogs are absolutely killing Sallie over the story including Larry Brown Sports and Draft Express.

Fine reporting there, Ralph-Jeremy Lin’s couch photographed

February 13, 2012

Sudden NBA superstar Jeremy Lin’s living arrangements have become the stuff of legend. The Knicks point guard was famously sleeping on his brother’s couch.

Now, thanks to teammate Landry Fields’ Twitter account, we now have a picture of that couch.

Jeremy Lin inspires Knicks and worst NBA nickname of all time

February 11, 2012

What a story! What a run!

In one of the most amazing NBA stories ever, newly minted New York Knicks legend/point guard Jeremy Lin BLEW UP Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. Lin dropped 38 points on LA, added 7 assists, shot great from outside and made all of his New York teammates better with his play in a 92-85 victory.

Just a week ago, Lin was an anonymous, journeyman, fourth-string guard who was sleeping on his brother’s couch and in danger of being cut by his fourth NBA team in a year. Not any more!

Starting last Saturday, the Asian, Ivy League graduate Lin has scored 25, 28, 23 and now a career-high 38 points. All Knicks wins. Friday night’s game had “an NBA Finals atmosphere.” Frenzied fans at Madison Square Garden repeatedly chanted, “MVP, MVP!” every time Lin touched the ball.

Before Lin’s amazing run, the Knicks had a pathetic 8-15 record and all of the talk was about the possible firing of coach Mike D’Antoni. Now the talk is all Jeremy Lin all the time.

Finally, how horrible must astronomically priced, underachieving free agent “superstars” Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire feel. The Knicks completely sucked with the pair and their combined $165 million plus contracts. Now, they’ve won four in a row without either led by the minimum-salaried Jeremy Lin. Go Linsanity!

“Relapsing” Josh Hamilton apparently had anonymous sex in a restaurant bathroom stall

February 11, 2012

PHOTO OF THE LAST TIME JOSH HAMILTON FELL OFF THE WAGON

Poor Mrs. Josh Hamilton. She has stuck by her husband, Texas Rangers outfielder and former AL MVP Josh Hamilton, through years of his addictions to alcohol, crack and heroin. Now, she’ being publicly humiliated. Again.

Hamilton’s feel-good story of overcoming addiction (mostly) has been well chronicled by the national media. Particularly since he has played in the national spotlight during each of the last two seasons in the World Series. However, Hamilton has had two very public and very humiliating relapses. The first came in 2009 when Hamilton was photographed doing shots and licking whipped cream off a girl’s breasts in a bar. Hamilton’s latest drunken fiasco occured January 30th.

Although Hamilton has publicly admitted indiscretions and even addressed the second matter with a press conference, he didn’t provide any details about the incident. Don’t worry, the website Deadspin.com has. Deadspin, which was not able to ruin Hamilton’s marriage with their 2009 photos, has a posting that will probably torch the Hamilton’s relationship. The story tells about Hamilton having anonymous sex with a woman who was a complete stranger. The sex allegedly occured in the restaurant’s mens room following a rousing bout of karaoke.

Deadspin also reported on a rumor that somebody tried to sell a Dallas tv station a camera phone “sex tape” of the encounter.
