Kate Upton made an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show and busted out a new dance move “The Cat Daddy” while Fritzie busted out his patented Rick Astley impersonation. I believe that we can declare “The Dougie” officially dead after this one. You’re welcome, America.
Action shots and still photos for trading are fine and good, but memorabilia and autographs are where it’s at. That’s why an email I received about a new card set piqued my interest. SportKings offers a huge collection of legendary names and bridges the past to today’s heroes. The new set includes autographs of Muhammad [...]
He’s one of the most divisive men in sports. You say the name “Calipari” amongst a group of college hoops fans and you’re more likely to hear diatribes about the NCAA and vacated Final Four appearances than an assessment of his coaching and recruiting skills. No coach has embraced the changing landscape of the college [...]
If you mention the words “hamburger” or “burger joint” to a group of people in Los Angeles, you’re going to start an argument. There are many options available, from gastropubs to local mom and pop stands to the unavoidable large chains. I’d toss “Umami Burger” and “Bouzy” (a bar/grill down in the Beach Cities) into [...]
The time has come for creativity, reinvention and expansion. If you’re leaving the local watering hole, one of many restaurants, historic shops or a concert venue (you’re not that far away from the famed Sunset Strip), you just might be jonesing for a late-night sugar rush. The original cupcake shop, Sprinkles Cupcakes in Beverly Hills, [...]
I stumbled across this one earlier today – thought I’d share it with you all. Enjoy. I
Joe Flacco became the latest NFL player to chime on the phenomenon of Tim Tebow. It’s a story that has shifted beyond the walls of the sporting world and has created a larger dialogue (have some questioned their faith?). I understand there is frustration associated with the 24-hour “All Tebow, All The Time” coverage. I [...]
Kendall Wright made Robert Griffin III owners in fantasyland positively giddy when he snagged a tipped ball out of the air and sprinted 87 yards for a touchdown. The Bears shocked the Sooners and further jumbled the already confused BCS standings.
Since I was a middle-school student in Chicago, I had an unhealthy obsession with trivia. Box scores, football and baseball almanacs … and Alex Trebek were part of my daily existence. I read the backs of trading cards to learn players’ hobbies and hometowns. Mr. Trebek was like that crazy uncle in the corner spouting [...]
Idle construction equipment is getting new life in Las Vegas. The great hub of nightlife and chicanery, long noted as an adult playground, has a new toy. “Dig This” opened to give people an opportunity to learn how to use the equipment and move mountains (or piles of sand and rocks). For $750 per hour, [...]
She’s tied to sports, what with her new NBA husband and star brother-in-law. So, in the spirit of bringing you the best of sports and entertainment, here is this … OK, so this isn’t exactly the best in terms of music. Let’s call it what it is … it’s inspirational.
We always do the “Where are they now?” with child actors. Well, here’s one building on a long stretch as an elected official political career with an eye on Congress. David Pollock, who played Rudi in “The Bad News Bears” with the great Walter Matthau, has worked closely with the military while at Rocketdyne and [...]
Every time I traverse the Hollywood news sites or catch an entertainment piece on the local news, it seems that another group of production pirates are looting my childhood. This evening, I put the ribbon on another fantasy column for FOXSports.com and decided to catch up on the news of the day. I’d already read [...]
We heard about Ben Roethlisberger’s contract this offseason when James Harrison popped off in a magazine. Now, Roethlisberger is aiming even higher as the Steelers jump onboard the third installment of Chris Nolan’s Batman series, “The Dark Knight Rises.” Roethlisberger Looking to Become a $1 Billion Movie Star, Too Add another set of zeroes and [...]
A 34-year old man in Salmon, Idaho was told to stop wearing a bunny suit in public after townspeople contended that he was frightening children. According to this report, the man would sometimes spice up the outfit by adding a tutu. And when he wasn’t feeling like a bunny, he’d dress up as a ballerina [...]
Did you miss the debut of Adam Carolla’s new show on SPEED? Here’s a look at The Car Show.
As I traverse the vast world that is the Internet, I inevitably come across some non-sports items that give me a chuckle. Well, the arrival of the final “Harry Potter” film brings with it a laundry list of memories, retrospectives and “Best Of” rants. This particular list is the cure-all to all of life’s ills. [...]
I was working on the update of my fantasy rankings while contemplating the meaning of life when a story crossed my desk. A bust by the Torrance Police here in Calfornia netted eight arrests and a TON of marijuana. I know that we use the euphemism “ton” a lot, but the police literally recovered more [...]
This popped up on the wire Tuesday afternoon. Laurence Fishburne departs the show after two seasons, prompting the need to find another new lead for the lab. Enter Danson. It was a high-profile search as the former ratings beast moves into its next phase. Is it enough to bring it back to the top? Ted [...]
On Friday night, I had the rare occasion to slip out of the house and see a film on its opening night. Normally, new releases slip into the background of my consciousness following that opening weekend. I may slip out to catch a matinee, but most of the time these films don’t reappear on my [...]
The evening sports wrap here in Los Angeles routinely takes shots at the sea of blue in Dodger Stadium for 2011 home games. Unless most years when they’d be referencing the caps and t-shirts displaying the logo of this once-iconic franchise, this season has been defined by empty seats. That’s not the case in Dayton, [...]
Unless you’ve abandoned Major League Baseball in search of the summer sun, vacations, and rest before the start of the NCAA and NFL seasons, you know that Derek Jeter is creeping to 3,000 hits. He’s a polarizing figure, of course, as “The Captain” of this New York ship. It just comes with the territory. Respect. [...]
