I find it unbelievable that a certain sports celebrity recently made a festivity out of burning a hundred dollar bill. Geez, that’s just about a week’s worth of groceries at Staters! Not only is that a major waste of money – literally – but if I remember right, isn’t that a federal offense? I can’t remember the law in specifics because when is the last time you heard of ANYONE burning that much money for fun? And this person did it in front of a lot of people which sends a really bad message, don’t you think? Read more to find out who the idiot is…
What a great weekend that was for for baseball lovers as we head into the All-Star break…
I think we can all enjoy a good celebration of victory, can’t we? That is Swedish soccer star, Josephine Oqvist (see, even her name is cute), exchanging shirts with a male fan after their win on Saturday, And yes, we’ve got video…
Then he’d be the one cashing in on the t-shirt sales instead of the guy that came up with the new line of “Frankrupt” stuff…
It’s a freakin’ MIRACLE! We’re halfway ’round the bend on the 2011 go ’round of NASCAR and Ol’ Lefty FINALLY got one right. So far this year I’ve done a better job of pickin’ my nose than pickin’ winners, but Denny Hamlin finally came home with the checkers in the Heluva Good! 400 at Michigan International this past Sunday.
Now before we git too far down this road, I gotta point out that I ain’t pullin’ yer leg when I call it the Heluva Good! 400. I know it sounds like somethin’ I’d say when describin’ a Tuesday night at the local bowlin’ alley, but that really is the name of the race. NASCAR will slap a sponsor on justabout anything, and Heluva Good! just happens ta be some darn tasty sour cream dips. So next time yer thinkin’ about eatin’ somethin’ crunchy, make it a Heluva Good! snack. I guarantee you’ll have a Heluva Good! party and yer guests will have a Heluva Good! time. Ya see what I did there? Should be worth a couple thousand bucks of endorsement fees and I can use a new bass fishin’ boat. Keep readin’ fer the rest of the race breakdown.
See that bottle? No, not the little one. That’s a regular sized bottle, I’m talking about the BIG one. That’s the $90,000 bottle of champagne that Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks bought after the team won the NBA Championship on Sunday night…
Eight. That’s the number of games the NFL may try to sell us as being a legitimate 2011 season…
Somebody’s been puttin’ bees in the britches of our friends in NASCAR, cuz lately the fellas have been a bit grumpy! So far this season we’ve seen “The Closer” Kevin Harvick throw a haymaker through the window of the 18, and we heard Chad Knaus use some not-safe-fer-church language after 5-Time blowed up at the Coke 600… and that’s just on the television. Rumor has it, the boys ‘ve been havin’ even more fun behind the closed doors of the NASCAR hauler. Heck, they’re even gittin’ into it on Twitter! Grab a cold one and keep readin’ for NASCAR 2011: The Anger Management Edition!
It sure is amazin’ the kinda stuff that can happen in justa few weeks. While I been rasslin’ with these new fangled computers so I could git back ta bloggin’, the racin’ world done went and got itself in a tizzy!
Where do I git started? Howzabout the KyBusch and Kevin fisticuffs at Darlington that ended in a ride with no wheelman wreckin’ in the pits? Or maybe our Daytona 500 winner with a mystery plague? I guess I could start with Carl winnin’ a cool million at the All Star Race and then wreckin on the Victory Lap, but then I’d hafta wait ta tell ya about some Formula 1 feller named Kimi comin’ ta take over NASCAR.
But wait… Whatindaheck is THIS? Kyle Busch jus’ got nabbed by a smokey goin’ 128 in a 45! Looks like this week’s gonna be more fun than the last! Read MORE for all the madness of last week and what’s comin’ around the next turn.
Well yes, Mr. Ed was a pretty special horse. After all, he could talk! But I doubt if Mr. Ed ever got the treatment held specifically for a Kentucky Derby winner. Just what happens in a horse’s life when he wins the most prestigious horse race on earth? All the hay he can eat? Oh a little bit more than that my friends! Take the jump and see.
