Guest List: Cuban, Simmons, King, Glazer … SbB?

The sports business industry’s magazine of record, SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, has a feature today on must-visit sports websites, and I’m happy to report that SbB is prominently featured:

SportsBusiness Journal's Must-Read Sports Destinations

The piece is preceded with this description: “We have our own must-read sports destinations on the Web, and we asked others for their list of hot reads.

A host of writers and websites are noted, including Yardbarker.com, Bill Simmons, Peter King, Jay Glazer, Mark Cuban and Buster Olney, among others.

So just how in holy hell did we end up invited to that party? Read more…

Live Brog: Brooks At Red Sox-Angels In Anaheim

I’m coming to you live from inside and outside Angels Stadium tonight, with a Live Brog of ALDS Game 1 between the Red Sox and the Angels (we’ll just leave off the whole ridiculous L.A. thing, if you don’t mind).

Brooks with SbB Girls at Angels Stadium

(The fateful night St. Peters screwed me out of that dratted six-team parlay)

I’m hoping to take some interesting pics from outside the stadium and inside the Anaheim Hooter Girls breakroom the ballpark during the game. The in-game stuff (photos, commentary) can be problematic depending on cell reception, but SbB Managing Editor Jason Kaifesh who is pissed about losing a night off will be cheerfully overseeing the entire operation and have some snappy commentary and photo/video fun regardless. And you’re welcome to join in on the post thread anytime.

My Boy Barry Discount Tickets

Of course, I wouldn’t be at the game without My Boy Barry, who is (by far) the biggest ticket broker when it comes to affordable Angels and Dodgers playoff tickets. Hit his website or call 888-820 8499 and get your SbB discount (use code SbB 010).

So I’m all set to fumble hand the baton to the honorable Mr. Kaifesh, and get this show on the road. Start refreshing just before the game starts at 10p ET.

Brog: Live Brog Features Coli Commentary, Cutty

Saturday, I’ll be coming to you on SbB live from inside and outside the L.A. Coliseum, reporting on the USC-Ohio State game, with assistance from our Managing Editor Jason Kaifesh.

USC 27 OSU 10 USC Song Girl Upskirt

(The Autumn wind is a butt pirate)

We’ll take you in and around the Coli with a genuine cutty sark-stained boots-on-the-ground perspective, and also have in-game observos from our seats at the game (Thanks Barry!). And I promise: absolutely, positively no mentions of those wacky(!) ESPN Gameday signs.

I’ll be joined by DEADSPIN’s A.J. Daulerio at the entire affair as well. And be sure and check out Matt Sussman’s account of the game over at Dspin. And yes, with tailgate fare in mind (*seasoned* bacon-wrapped hot dogs all around!), I plan to require Daulerio bring a generous supply o’ Depends to the proceedings.

Tim Tebow Hooters Girl Gainesville

(Timbo’s consolation prize)

The only thing I’ll add to all that’s been said about the game is that after Saturday, Mark Sanchez is your leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy. Sorry Timbo. And Mizzou, you might ask for your $50,000 back.

Prediction: USC 27, Ohio State 10.

Here’s how Elite XC and CBS is promoting the upcoming Kimbo Slice-Ken Shamrock bout:

A commercial featuring Bodacious Boobs” and a bikini model showering - which of course is what first comes to mind when I think of CBS. At least after my last forced viewing of Big Bang Theory on an American Airlines flight bound for Topeka.

John Maffei of the NORTH COUNTY (CA) TIMES reports today from San Diego that former longtime SoCal talkshow host Lee “Hacksaw” Hamiltonis moving up to Sirius XM Radio starting Monday, when Sirius launches ‘Mad Dog Radio’ on both services.” Hamilton will man the evening shift at Sirius.

Moving up to evening sports talk show shift on Sirius? Table for one, Hacksaw?

No idea how I missed this, but here’s the cover image for the calendar the Redskins are selling on their official website featuring the team’s cheer squad.

And to think I thought these (implied) NFL nudie calendars weren’t all about jerkoffs. Read more…
