Hot Cheerleader Gets Hurt, I’m LIVID!

As the final seconds of double overtime counted down in Saturday’s Oregon/Arizona football game, somewhere out in the crowd a nearly full water bottle came flying onto the field striking Oregon senior cheerleader Katelynn Johnson on the head. She managed to make her way to the sidelines after being hit before she passed out.

A stretcher came out to take her to the hospital where she was kept overnight for observation but she is expected to be fine. When the Oregon Ducks were leaving the field, according to their Athletic Director, they were being pelted with a slew of items, including batteries and bottles.

I for one am HORRIFIED by this incident. If you’re going to hurt someone, hurt one of the UGLY kids, I mean, for god’s sake, this girl is HOT, she doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment. Don’t you know hot people are your betters?

Stray Pussy Gets Goalie in Trouble

During a Croatian Premier League soccer match goalie Ivan Banovic almost cost his team the game for being an animal lover. A stray cat had run onto the field, and so Banovic ran over to it, picked it up and carried it off the field to safety. The referee was furious with his actions and gave Banovic a yellow card for leaving the field without the ref’s permission.

Ultimately, Banovic’s club, Medjimurje FC lost 1-0, but he received a generous hand from the fans who appreciated his efforts to save the cat.

You Wouldn’t Like Eddy Curry When He Gets Angry

I’m not surprised that Eddy Curry got violent during his return to action for the Knicks, I’m just thankful that he didn’t eat Rajon Rondo in addition to punching him in the back of the head. To be fair, clearly Rondo deserved this, I mean, how DARE he try for a rebound. That’s EDDY’S ball.

Ochocinco Wants to Cover Up the Johnson

Chad Ochocinco (né Johnson) is an endless publicity whore, but when, in seeking said publicity he’s hilarious, I have no problem showcasing him. If you watched this season of HBO’s Hard Knocks, you probably remember Ochocinco talking about how he was going to be coming out with his own brand of condoms.

Well, via his endlessly amusing Twitter page, Chad showed off what the packaging could look like. While I don’t know that I’d ever trust these, they certainly are more reliable than the David Beckham knock-offs that were found in China.

I don’t know for what, but I’m sure the NFL will find some way to fine Ochocinco over these.

Kobe Bryant is Talented at Basketball

One of the reasons why I dislike Kobe Bryant is that, like with Alex Rodriguez, he comes off as fake and his public persona seems totally forced and manufactured. Having said that, (nod, Larry David) he is absolutely SICK at basketball, take these two plays from Sunday’s Lakers/Thunder game, Kobe may be a giant douche but the man has skills.

Placenta-Using Doc Now Wanted By Authorities

When we last heard about Mariana Kovacevic, the Serbian housewife/healer was treating Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie’s (right) injured ankle with a special massage using baby placenta. Today the Serbian health authorities are looking for the one-time pharmacology doctor turned physiotherapist who they say has been operating without a license and may be guilty of tax evasion as well.

The news reports are backtracking from saying the treatment involved babies, now saying that her unusual treatment methods use HORSE placenta instead. Regardless of the source of the placenta, there aren’t any complaints from her clients.

“It’s good, I’m happy. The woman is a miracle,” Van Persie was quoted after being treated at her apartment.

“Mariana is amazing,” said former Serbia player Dusan Petkovic.

“She saved the careers of several Serb and foreign players. All those muscle injuries, including ruptures, she is treating without a mistake.

“She uses a combination of electricity and the miracle gel that is her exclusive product. The electric current goes through a stick holding the gel, which is applied to the injured spot.”

Devin Hester Shows Off a New Moon

(click the image if you’re anxious to see Hester’s butt in it’s full glory)

With just over a minute remaining in Eagles/Bears game Sunday, Bears QB Jay Cutler reached back and fired off a pass to Devin Hester in an effort to gain the crucial first down. The defense was all over Hester and he wasn’t able to corral the ball.

As a personal homage to the success of Twilight’s New Moon domination of the box office, Hester opted to show America the full moon.

At Least the Irish Have Perspective

Fresh after their heart-breaking, and illegitimate, loss to the French for World Cup qualifying, many Irish citizens are casting about for things to blame. Case in point, Henry brand vacuum cleaners.

Some custodians at an Irish government building told their supervisors that “they’re unhappy working with vacuum cleaners with the cheat’s name written on them.

“It’s bizarre because the machines have nothing whatsoever to do with Thierry Henry. Some have painted over the name on the cleaner and wiped the smile off its little red face. It just shows how the frustration caused by that goal has got to everyone in Ireland.”

Perronimo!

Saturday’s Islanders/Blues game ended in a St. Louis 4-1 victory and it was David Perron’s 3rd period goal that put the cherry on top of this sweet victory. From his own blue line Perron weaves his wave through two defenders before continuing his nifty moves to totally fake out the goaltender and fire it in to the net while falling. Well done sir.

America’s Team Doesn’t Show the American Flag

There’s quite a controversy brewing down in Dallas over the Cowboys’ new stadium; while it features all the high-tech amenities fans could want, the lack of a flagpole apparently is rankling some folks.

According to team owner Jerry Jones, “Our stadium is so huge that you really have quite a challenge of displaying it so that everyone can see it,” he said. “So the place to see it the most clear is in the middle of the event [level].”

“The policy really is that the people that are in charge of the event make those arrangements relative to our anthem and recognition of the flag,” he continued.

It being Texas, many people believe that the only way you can show yourself to be patriotic is to have the flag displayed at all times, otherwise, you’re probably an unAmerican godless heathen.

Billy Joe Gabriel was appalled at the stadium’s lack of a flag, “I just always assumed there was a flag everywhere I went,” he said about sports arenas. “Now, I’ll be looking.”

After all, how would anyone watching the game on television know the game was being played in America, with the widespread popularity of football with thousands of professional teams playing all over the world — oh wait…

Jones also mentioned that the team hasn’t found an appropriate place to put the team’s 5 Super Bowl banners, but there hasn’t been any outcry over that.

In fact, there are very few permanent signs in place at the new stadium, nearly everything is presented on digital screens, allowing for versatility and easy changes.

“We have the ability to put things in and around that stadium that is a hundred times what we had at Texas Stadium,” Jones said. “But you do it digitally. We may very well have [the Super Bowl banners] on the digital boards before we’re through.”

Honestly, who gives a shit. So there’s no flag, if you came to a giant football stadium to stare at a flag you’re a giant asshole. It’s embarrassing enough that the only time people hear the National Anthem or think about it is at a sports game that has ZERO to do with America or Americans. Go to the game, watch the players and then leave, it’s sports, they serve as escapes, so please let the rest of us escape and keep your simple-minded protests regarding flag placement in your minute-sized brains.
