Bat Colony Exacts Its Revenge On Manu Ginobili

It’s not that we don’t appreciate PETA - we do, animal abuse is awful* - but we always thought that they went about this Manu Ginobili bat incident all wrong. Instead of hounding him for an apology or whatever it is they wanted from him, why didn’t they just figure out a way to, as […]


Video: 30 Rock’s “Tennis Night In America” Promo

A little confession: I’ve never really gotten into 30 ROCK. Yes, I’m told at least once a week that it’s the funniest show on television and that Tracy Morgan is a comedic genius. I’ve just seen the show about 4 times - trust me, I tried to get into it - and each time, it […]


Gross/Iconic Coaching Outfits Through The Years

The BOSTON GLOBE reported yesterday that fully half of the gray hooded sweatshirts sold through the NFL are adorned with the Patriots logo, a fairly obvious by-product of Bill Belichick’s “hobo coach” look.

(Doesn’t he look sharp? Or homeless?)
It seems strange that such an image-unconscious look has caught on in spite of itself, but we got […]


St. Louis Cards Prez Has Tons Of Illegitimate Kids?

By most standards, the 2009 All-Star Game in St. Louis was a success. City leaders were falling all over themselves in praise, because that’s what they’re supposed to do any time an event comes to town [it’s called being gracious. try it sometime.–ed].

(The Lothario himself, planning seating capacity for all his daughters.)
But above all else, […]


Oh No He Din’t: Stewart Drops A-Bomb On Phillies

Tensions had been brewing for some time, but the war between Jon Stewart and the baseball fans of Philadelphia officially got underway on Thursday at approximately 11:14 p.m. EST. Ironically, it was during a segment on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” in which the host was attempting to lampoon North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, […]


Shawn Johnson Video Causes B.S. “Controversy”

We already mentioned it as a throwaway link in yesterday’s Speed Read, because it was a funny parody of the strange treatment of thoroughbreds in the horse racing industry but nothing meriting more than one line in a morning post, but in case you missed it THE ONION put together an obviously, ludicrously fake piece […]


Did Renegade Bartender Cause Iowa DB’s OWI???

Ask any Iowa State or opposing Big Ten football fan, and they’ll readily point out that you can’t spell Iowa without the letters O, W, and I. Whether that maxim holds any merit outside of coincidence is debatable; after all, you can’t spell “theatrical” without H, I, T, L, E, and R, but that doesn’t […]


Shawn Kemp Will Not Be Overpopulating Europe

Hurricane Ike caused a lot of damage when it struck on the Gulf coast, costing many people their homes, and for some, even their livelihoods. Still, I don’t think any of us knew the real extent of the damage done by Hurricane Ike until right now.

Former NBA star and three-time Father of the Year Shawn […]


Brett Favre Already Has Plans For New York City

So as you’ve all been made aware of by now, the Green Bay Packers finally pulled the trigger on a deal that sent Hall of Fame-bound quarterback Brett Favre to the New York Jets. Finally, the national nightmare that was the Brett Favre Saga has come to an end, and life in America […]
