Most whipped athlete in sports history hits new all-time low

March 14, 2012

Poor Doug Christie. His wife Jackie is so wretched she makes porn intolerable. Jackie Christie, promoting yet another horrific realty tv show that she’s appearing in, announced yesterday that the couple is going to become adult film producers and make a pornographic movie together.

 Christie is only remembered as an NBA player for being the most henpecked, wussified, shell-of-a-man and beleagured sports husband in history. Unfortunately, that schtick is a decade old and it was overdone then.

Doug, they’re not laughing with you (they never were.) They’re laughing at you.

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!

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!

Gilbert Arenas was right

JAVARIS CRITTENTON

Former Georgia Tech star and NBA player Javaris Crittenton is being sought by police on murder charges. Crittenton is accused of killing a 23-year-old woman. Crittenton allegedly shot at a man he spotted walking on an Atlanta street last week, believing him to be the man who robbed him in April. The female victim, a mother of four, was a completely innocent bystander, who just happened to be walking down the street at the time. Also, the man Crittenton intended to shoot wasn’t the guy who robbed him.

You may remember the ridiculous gun incident that actually sent NBA funnyman Gilbert Arenas to jail for a brief period of time in 2010. In that debacle, Arenas was in a gun-fueled confrontation with then-teammate Crittenton over a gambling debt.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries made an $18 million profit off their wedding

August 21, 2011

The much-hyped wedding between celebrity reality tv star Kim Kardashian and her NBA basketball player husband Kris Humphries cost a reported $8 million. What has been less publicized is that the couple reportedly made $18 million on the event and paid virtually zero of that eight million.

Darren Rovell of CNBC reports that Kardashian and Humphries were payed a combined $17.9 million for the “media rights” to the wedding. This includes $15 million from E! TV wich is airing a two-part rebroadcast of the wedding called “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event,” an additional $2.5 million from People Magazine for the wedding pictures, and $300,00 for an article from People announcing the couple’s engagement. Good news because Humphries is currently unemployed with the NBA lockout. Kardashian was also payed by Tao nightclub in Las Vegas to have her bacherlorette party there and by Ok! magazine for bridal shower pictures.

One gossip site adds that the couple also got tons of “free crap” from various corporate sponsors. According to the New York Post, the free crap included Kardashian’s wedding dress, the wedding cake, and free rental of the estate where the couple got married. Also free was the wedding’s champagne, floral arrangements and catering which included caviar and Kobe beef. The couple was also comped the decorations and the wedding invitations. Somebody else also paid for the musical acts which included Stevie Wonder and Earth, Wind, and Fire.

Darren Rovell hilariously points out that Humphries made $17.9 million off the wedding compared to $16.9 million off his entire seven-year basketball career. Wedding guests included Ryan Seacrest, Kathie Lee Gifford, Lindsay Lohan, Carmelo Anthony and Eva Longoria.
