Yet another Tennessee fan has vented their hatred for Lane Kiffin on You-Tube. There's some questionable language so click to the link at your own risk. Just remember that someday, Vols fans will look at the BSC "Championship" trophies won by Derek Dooley and laugh at all this. Yeah, right. Who do I think I'm fooling here?
Want to know the real reason Tony Kornheiser wasn't on Pardon the Interruption yesterday? The Big Lead reports that Kornheiser has been suspended from PTI for a few days due to comments made about one of Hannah Storm's outfits she wore on ESPN last week.(via The Big Lead, Deadspin)
Well, it didn't take too long for someone to come up with a shirt for those still irate over Lane Kiffin Tennessee Vols fans (cue the Carolina Liar...). Not the most original statement here, but still effective.Ironically, this picture originally appeared on the Inside USC blog. Oh how beautiful the irony. It makes you wonder what that shirt would look like in cardinal and gold, doesn't it? I guess we'll find out in a few years.(via Inside USC, Dr. Saturday)
What was Eli Manning doing while big brother Peyton was preparing for his Super Bowl chokejob appearance? According to The Angry T, Elijah was apparently hanging out at a Super Bowl party hosted by Hooters.Not that he was alone. Lions' QB Matt Stafford was there too. Along with Jon Gruden, Joe Montana, and Chad (Johnson). Sam Bradford was hanging around too. (And yes genius, there are Hooters resturants in Oklahoma).Should anybody be surprised that Eli was at a Hooters party? This was the same guy who was writing graffiti in the visitor's locker room in the brand-new Jerry Jones' Heathen Temple to His Own Avarice Cowboys Stadium. Archie should have raised him better.(via The Angry T, The Big Lead)
He was the epitome of everything that's wrong in sports during the 2006 Olympics in Turin, Italy. But now Bode Miller can add Olympic Gold Medal winner to his resume. Miller won the gold in the men's super combined event on Sunday.Miller's reckless attitude and partying got the thumbs down by the media in 2006. His disastrous performance in the games didn't help either. That's pretty much yesterday's news now. Miller's 2010 Olympic record now includes a gold, a silver, and a bronze.Just some advice for Miller: Don't let strange women use your medal as a chew toy like Scotty Lago did. That's still frowned upon.(via Atlanta-Journal Constitution)
Johnny Weir's already planning his post skating career. Sadly it will probably involve the fashion world. Weir told Yahoo! Sports that he is considering retiring from competitive skating after the coming 2010 World Championships in Torino, Italy. “In figure skating your body can only last for so long," said Weir "I can’t be 50 and trying to skate but I can be 50 and be in fashion, so I have to look to my future and what I want to achieve.”Weir mentions wanting to enroll in the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. If he does expect Freudian nightmares and PeTA protests to follow.(via Yahoo! Sports)
File this under "this shouldn't surprise me, but it still does" dept. Clemson has reported 17 secondary violations to the NCAA. There's not much that stands out in these violations. The most unusual is where an assistant coach wrote on a prospect's Facebook wall. Don't expect the see any penalties from these violations. But it does give Lane Kiffin a new goal to reach at USC.(via Buster Sports, The State)
Jerry Jones was seen last night in Vancouver watching the men's figure skating at the Winter Olympics. This can't be a good sign. You know that once Jerrah's been to an Olympics, he's going to want one of his own. After all, he needs something to fill up the Heathen Temple to His Own Avarice Cowboys Stadium during the NFL offseason, doesn't he?(via Dallas Morning News)
Ole Miss students will be voting next week to decide if they want a new mascot as a replacement for Colonel Reb. This comes seven years after the mascot was retired for being too connected to the "Old South" (as in slavery, the Confederacy, the Civil War, segregation, etc.)Ole Miss students won't get to actually pick a mascot at this point, but that hasn't stopped some enterprising students. There's a movement afoot to make Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi the replacement for Colonel Reb. (Because he's a commander of the Rebel Alliance, get it?) Like all absurd movements, it even has a Facebook page.It's a really dumb idea. but if we're really going to go there...UGA: Chewbacca. If there's a Star Wars character you want on the sidelines, it's got to be Chewie. And Chewie epitomizes the kind of ferocity UGA V showed back in 1996 against Auburn. Besides, the best advice is to let the Wookiee win.Florida: Darth Vader. Too obvious.Vanderbilt: C-3PO. The gold shell of C-3PO perfectly matches the Commodore's school colors. And his prissy, intellectual demeanor fits just as well.Tennessee: Jabba the Hutt. (Insert Phil Fulmer joke here)(via Dr. Saturday)
Terence Moore thinks Nike's "MVPuppets" of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James demean African-Americans. Well, there's a shock. Moore's a longtime expert at abusing the race card, so this is just par from the course.Moore refers to Kobe and LeBron's puppet avatars as "the anti-Barack Obamas" and that they "mostly lounge around their apartment as they live in a world filled with rapping and folks speaking broken English."What really set Moore off is the "House on Fire" commercial where "Kobe's" shoes set the puppet's shared house on fire.Just like various poisons, these Kobe-LeBron puppet commercials have names, which brings me to the one that pushed me over the edge: "Shoes on fire." It begins with Kobe and LeBron returning home to a smoldering mess after an inferno at their apartment. They are questioned by a couple of firemen who are sifting through the rubble inside the shoe closet of the two players. After a while, the white fireman says to the black fireman, "Chief, I think we've got something over here," as the white fireman holds up one of Kobe's smoking sneakers with a pair of pliers. Then the black fireman goes into his best Pigmeat Markham routine (you know, "Heah com du judge") by snapping his neck while saying, "I'm tell YOU as an official of the fire department -- this shoe right heah is just . . . TOO hot." To which the Kobe puppet says to the LeBron puppet with glee, "LeBron, you hear that? My shoe hot." Ha, ha. Ho, ho. Barf, barf.I don't want to say Moore's got hearing problems, but I watched the offending part of the clip several times over, and I'm pretty sure that the Fire Chief puppet says "I'm telling you" as opposed to "I'm tell YOU." Maybe it's time Moore went to the otologist.(via Fanhouse)
The rumors are true. Janell Wheeler, the young woman who is one of Tim Tebow's umpteen aledged girlfriends, is one of the "Final 24" who made the cut on American Idol. This despite a less than stellar final audition in Hollywood.The question now is will Tebow show up in the audience for American Idol. (He might be a little busy with his own "auditions" for the NFL) Or whether the subject even comes up on the air. But whether they know it or not, two of America's biggest cultural obsessions may just be ready to collide. Hope they both survive the experience.(via Tampa Bay Online)
Valerie Shea of Stalking Steve Philips claims that the following Vitaminwater commercial featuring Steve Nash "is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time!" Shea really needs to get out more, or at least she needs watch more television.What this commercial really proves it that Steve Nash should consider himself lucky that Shaquille O'Neal stole used his idea for a TV show where Nash went one-on-one against other athletes and turned it into Shaq vs. Because a show called Steve Nash vs. would never have gotten made by an American television network. Heck, the CBC would probably have turned him down. Nash should just be happy that Nelly Furtado dropped his name in "Promiscuous"(via Stalking Steve Philips)
Lindsey Vonn has won the gold medal in the Olympic downhill competition at the 2010 Olympics. Julia Mancuso won the silver, making it a one-two punch for the US. Austrian Elisabeth Goergl took the bronze.Just don't expect to hear this on NBC anytime soon. I'm seriously hoping for a massive culling of NBC execs when Comcast takes over, with Zucker and Ebersol going first.(via Yahoo! Sports)
A couple of Canadian blogs, Bloge Salming and Down Goes Brown put together a friendly little clip about the Canadian Olympic Hockey team. Not what could Sydney Crosby and our friendly neighbors to the North have to say to us? Not to mention Russia, Finland, Sweden, and the Czech Republic.(Warning: Language you wouldn't use in front of your mama.)Gee, maybe Rick Reilly had a point. Well, maybe not.Oh well. at least the music in the Opening Ceremonies wasn't bad. Though I'm beginning to wonder about K.D. Lang. Is she still a vegan? She looked like she'd taken a few trips to the hot bar at Golden Corral. Applewood bacon rocks. That or she ate a PeTA supporter or two.(via The Sporting Blog)
It's been over a month, but it seems a few Vols fans are still not over Lane Kiffin. Below is a magnum opus from The Ridge Boys called "You's A Coward." Warning: There's some language you're mama wouldn't approve of.Maybe Vols fans will cool down before September. But I hope not.
