Found via the forum at Tripadvisor.com, a map of where some celebrities live in Miami:
I’m also a little perplexed that Kimbo Slice’s Nissan Sentra parked outside the Dairy Queen on Alton Road isn’t push-pinned (if you’re one of the last living souls unaware that he lived in his car, we apologize).
Also, will someone, ANYONE give props to Dan Le Batard? Forget Youtube, he’s the man who manufactured and served up Kimbo Slice to the main media as legitimate (that means you, Kevin Iole).
Martin Rogers of YAHOO SPORTS reports on a crisis facing the tranny-owned Houston MLS franchise: Too many white players!
Team owner Oscar De La Hoya: “Right now, the majority of our players are Caucasian. We are looking at different options to bring in the best players from Mexico because of Houston having such a large Latino population. We want to maybe bring in a couple of players from Mexico and mix it up a little.”
Saw this in a Fark.com thread on the cradle-robbing practices of the New England Patriots.
Fake or real? I’m guessing real.
I added that “Brooks” navigation box to the front page (top left) of the site today. Quick links to my posts, and a map where you can effectively stalk track my every move.
In case you haven’t figured it out, my new “Brog” is essentially some of my own personal observos about sports, with some stuff about the SbB site and my life thrown in. I’ve found that there were a lot of sports items that were slipping through the cracks. And I also wanted to have a place where you could find out what some of the future plans for the site were - and get reader feedback.
Speaking of SbB plans, I’m seriously considering putting out calendars of the SbB Girls in time for Christmas. I’m thinking we’d do 2-3 of them, with individual girls getting their own calendars.
Who are the girls I should consider? I have a pretty good idea, but let me know your feedback.
Or maybe I’ll just do a Kansas City-themed calendar!
I may also do some SbB merch (shirts, hats) and other stuff you can buy. Like wallpapers of the SbB Girls. We have a store setup thing that we’re working on. For .99 cents on Paypal, you can buy a single wallpaper. We may also sell credits. Once you purchase the wallpaper, an email link is sent to you so you can download it.
I have millions of photos you haven’t seen, so that sounds like a good use for some of them. FYI: I also have shoots coming up in the next two months with three new SbB Girls - stay tuned. The first shoot is in mid-June.
Here’s an old Luke Walton’s “Best of SoCal” list (Hermosa Pier? Seriously?).
One of the first things I’m going to try when I get back to L.A. is his BBQ joint in Manhattan Beach. Though an early diner wasn’t impressed (not a good sign when the Buffalo Wings are the best menu item). And hopefully by then also they’ll have the Mac & Cheese problem cleared up.
In my eternal, often futile quest to find highly-listenable sports radio (I know, oxymoron), I bring you Doug Gottlieb’s daily “Pulse” on ESPN Radio nights. Don’t let the consultants get you, Dougie!
Former Stanford Coach Trent Johnson, who I have on good authority is a royal a$$hole, shows his discerning, unclouded judgement in an interview with Mike Trudell on NBA.com:
Trudell: “Another guy people are talking about going very high in the draft is Jerryd Bayless from Arizona.”
Johnson: “Right, Bayless, and another guy by the name of Robin Lopez that isn’t bad either. If I took Brook No. 1, I’d take Robin No. 2.”
There’s been a lot of talk about how MLB is suddenly looking more and more the way it did in the ’70s. That is, because of the lack of PEDs, offense is way down.
Real baseball fans are probably enjoying the change. Now if they’ll only bring back the Halo helmets and umpires with neckties.
The only person who could ever make John McEnroe look sane.
Tony Massarotti of the BOSTON HERALD brings us the radio debut of serial steroid user and Nationals injured catcher Paul Lo Duca. In a guest analyst spot on Nats radio, Lo Duca hinted on-air that third sacker Ryan Zimmerman had an injured left shoulder.
Massarotti reports Zimmerman and manager Manny Acta “didn’t want the information leaked” and weren’t “particularly happy about the slip up, only reaffirming the notion that Lo Duca has loose lips.”
Reaffirming? Where’d they get that from?
Lou Piniella, just like Lee Elia, really loves blondes with big jugs the fans at Wrigley!
From the “how did I miss this pic?” file - courtesy EDSBS:
Matt Mosley of ESPN’s HASHMARKS (and Dallas NFL insider) has a spectacular take on the Jerry Jones-greased reinstatement of Pacman Jones.
The football coach at my Alma Mater, Georgia’s Mark Richt, to ESPN.com’s Ivan Maisel on why he became a coach: “I needed a job. I look in the newspaper and found a job as a bartender. Got fired about the second week of being a bartender. The guy who fired me, he told me to stick around at 2 a.m., he had a job for me. I started cleaning the bar after everybody left., from 2 a.m. to 10 a.m. After I got really desperate doing that, after a week or two, I thought, there’s gotta be something I can do with my skill set.
I said, I know. I’ll be a coach.”
Univ. of Miami football coach Randy Shannon to Maisel on how he skated through college: “I did some stuff in my past. But I didn’t have Internet, so I got away with a lot.“
Wonder how Ape feels about this? I think I know the answer.
