This Is Silvio Berlusconi’s ‘Dentist’ Nicole Minetti [22 Photos]

Posted: 30 Jun 2011 09:55 AM PDT

UPDATE: The gallery now actually works & is worth your time. Sorry. – BC.

Over a year ago there was a gossip story out of Italy where Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi had his teeth smashed and needed to have some work done on his mouth. Ironically, he ended up visiting a dental hygienist named Nicole Minetti, who had just graduated from hygiene schooling.  Silvs eventually recruited Ms. Minetti to run for political office. Fast forward to last week when Nicole hit Formentera, Spain to get in some bikini action.  Must admit…this is Silvio’s hottest WAG – EVER. Not sports, but you guys demand such galleries.

NBA Labor Breakdance Showdown

@KJ_NBA: Hunter vs Stern is like Glass Joe fighting Tyson.

Poor Billy Hunter, he’s the Buster Douglas going into this NBA Labor fight with David Stern. No other commissioner in the history of sports has had their respective sport by the balls more than Stern. I full expect Stern to wake up this morning, but on the Godfather soundtrack, and light up a cigar halfway through the meetings. It’s gonna get ugly.

@JMcDonald_SAEN: Then there’s this: "They're asking for a deal worse than hockey's, which is considered to be the worst CBA in sports history," Bonner said.

And what happened when Hockey didn’t work out their labor agreement? Yeah, they are on Channel 8,423 on Direct TV now. I like Matt Bonner of the Spurs, one of the savvy guys in a sea of freakishly talented yet dumb athletes. Take the deal players….if not, do you know how many baby mama’s will go hungry next year?

DAVID STERN PLAYLIST:

You know that Stern woke up this morning ready to kick some ass…..so we threw it out to our @BustedCoverage Fans. What’s on Stern’s Playlist for the big NBA Labor Meeting

  • @MadCowHeff: Damn it Feels Good To Be A Gangsta – Geto Boys
  • @HeartlessJersey: 99 Problems – Jay Z
  • @Mojavi74 – Harvester of Sorrows – Metallica
  • @MikeBee7 – Hard Out Here for a Pimp – Three 6 Mafia
  • @BustedCoverage: Nothing but a G’ Thang – Snoop Dogg

Speaking of that. To hell with Basketball Wives, I want to see a show called Basketball Baby Mama’s. You see, Basketball Wives have somewhat of an image to maintain……Basketball Baby Mama’s? Not so much. You air that show right after Maury Povich, and you’ll have a ratings BONANZA!!!!

Rap BobbleHeads!

@YankeeMelinPHL: MC Hammer bobblehead night in Oakland? Really?

Yes…..the Oakland A’s are going to have a MC Hammer bobblehead night. Truthfully, I’m a little pissed off. There is only one artist from Oakland that should have a bobblehead night……That is Too Short! More albums than MC Hammer, and much more of a life coach than Hammer EVER WAS!

Other Sports BobbleHead Nights:

  • @SteveSpoiler: NY Mets: Ol’ Dirty Bastard Bobblehead Night

@SportsbyBrooks: Reggie Bush betrays Heisman Trust, elects to not return actual Trophy

And this is to surprise us how? Why give it back? Reggie got the money, got the ring, got the trophy. You’d have to pry it from my dead hands. Finally a topic I agree with Reggie Bush on.

Russian Women’s Soccer Team To Play In Bikinis To Sell Tickets [Photos]

Posted: 30 Jun 2011 07:24 AM PDT

While the women’s World Cup trudges along in Germany with barely a pulse in the United States, a Russian soccer club has taken the extra step to guarantee a great turnout for its next match. FC Rossiyanka, 3-time Russian Women’s Premier League champions, are so cash strapped that they’ve promised to play their next match in bikinis to put men in the seats. Extreme? To Busted Coverage? No way. To purists? Of course.

According to our trusty Google Russian-to-English translator:

I think that our soccer players are beautiful and attractive woman, brilliantly holding the ball, no way inferior to the well-known tennis players and gymnasts, – says Sergey Zhuravlev. – Unfortunately, at this point  our sport is not enough due attention from the sports officials and government programs to support the sport. Women’s football is not developing as fast as in Europe.

With this project we want to draw attention to women’s soccer, to increase his popularity among the male population.  Necessary to break the stereotype of women’s football as a faint, not a spectacular sport. Throughout the world, the sport is on the first cast and is growing rapidly, largely thanks to government support and assistance to national associations.  The main thing is that our athletes understand and support our ideas. Together we will achieve our goals, because women’s football in Russia is doomed to success!

It should be noted that last year the football club “Russian woman” and similar organized shooting RZHFL players of the club and the Russian team. Then photos of the best football players of Russia in the form of glamorous ladies and gentle angels caused a real sensation.
According to head coach Tatiana Egorova, the experience contributes to the promotion of women’s football, and the athletes themselves are starting to feel more confident.

Here is the roster from the FC Rossiyanka website. Just sayin’, makeup is amazing. Might be an old roster.

One the other hand, we’ve done our research and the club really is part of UEFA and really does play in a decent stadium near Moscow. The club is even letting their ladies do 5 Question-like interviews with the Russian media – in bikinis.

More details and ticket information as it becomes available.

Mo Vaughn Doppelganger Is: Rick Ross, Suge Knight, Mark Henry Or Other?

Posted: 30 Jun 2011 06:21 AM PDT

The aging ‘Hit Dog’ was at Yankee Stadium last night, showing off his ice and that sweet Affliction shirt straight out of 2007. Our old buddy tipster Tree sent us a photo text message of Mo Vaughn last night for two obvious reasons (a.) when’s the last time you’ve seen Vaughn and (b.) dude is totally turning into the doppelganger of at least 3 celebrities off the top of our heads.

Cops: Former Dolphins DT Daryl Gardener Head-Butts Girlfriend [Cuff 'Em]

Posted: 30 Jun 2011 05:50 AM PDT

Can’t say we’d heard from former NFL DT Daryl Gardener for quite some time. The guy hasn’t played a down in the since 2003, but he gets back into the news this morning after University of Central Florida police busted him on head-butting his girlfriend charges. Ah, but it was Gardener who called the fuzz to allege she attacked him with a tire iron. The GF has visible injuries so Daryl took his banana boat to jail. This relationship should be about over.

Falcons LB Akeem Dent: Not Me Planking Cop Car [Morning Twitpics]

Posted: 30 Jun 2011 04:37 AM PDT

June 27-July 1, 2011 will forever be remembered as the week when black athletes took planking to the next level with a varied of planks that were both stupid and then others that were pieces of art. Take Atlanta Falcons LB (2011 draft pick) Akeem Dent’s Twitter account last night. Dude uploaded two photos and left us with these messages: “Im against all this #plankin but when u plankin on a police car u get mad respect!!!! Aint nobody gpnna top that” and “All I can say is #plankin to the max!!! Yes the man let us do it”

But alas, Dent says that’s not him on top of the Sarasota police cruiser.

no thats not me but someone else I aint crazy now

The former Georgia Bulldoger says the cop gave his boy the go-ahead to plank the car and that the episode was all good. Wheew, glad we didn’t end up last night with a draft pick in jail on conspiracy to plank a cruiser. Or a draft pick planking a cruiser in anticipation for a future crime.

In the end, hall of fame effort.

Shallon Lester Allegedly Drank Lone Amstel Light At Boston Bruins’ Cup Party

Posted: 29 Jun 2011 05:00 PM PDT

The mystery of the lone Amstel Light has been solved and aren’t we all better off?

What the hell am I talking about?

I’m sure everyone has seen the Boston Bruins’ bar tab from their Stanley Cup victory party at Foxwoods by now. It included the $100,000 bottle of MIDAS Ace of Spade champagne along with more than $8000 worth of less pricey Armand de Brignac Ace varieties and various other drinks. All told, it came to more than $156,000.

Well, someone noticed one of the partyers ordered an Amstel Light and Amstel made it their mission to unearth the drinker of the lone Amstel Light.

Amstel Light has offered free beer for the player's day with the Stanley Cup, plus more free beer at a Canada Day or Independence Day barbeque if a player fesses up to ordering the Amstel Light.

“We want to reward the Bruin who ordered the Amstel Light to recognize him for making a great decision,” the company said in a press release.

Why no one gave a shit who drank the one Corona or the one Heineken Light, I really don’t know. One possible reason is the people who drank those drinks don’t have a publicist, star in a reality show and aren’t attention whores, which brings me to this.

Reality star/author/blogger/socialite Shallon Lester says she drank the Amstel Light. She admitted as much in an email that conveniently ended up on Deadspin.

As for the Amstel, we were at Shrine (the nighclub inside Foxwoods) and Shawn Thornton was kind enough to pass the Stanley Cup full of Ace of Spades our way, but the champagne was warm and gross so I ordered a beer from the waitress. But if Amstel is keen on giving away beer, I think it should go to Jordan Caron. He was definitely the most excited to be in Lord Stan’s presence and definitely definitely used it to try and get laid.

Don’t worry, I don’t know who the hell Lester is either.

I will say this, though, she’s hot, which is probably her only redeeming quality.

More importantly, over at Lester’s blog we learn other important things about the evening in question, like the fact that Milan Lucic is a super bowler, she wears Jimmy Choo, and her story is iffy.

You’ll notice in the email Lester says she ordered the Amstel Light because the champagne was warm and gross. A reasonable person might assume that means she didn’t drink the champagne. On her blog she tells it a little differently.

But the best bestest moment came when they filled Lord Stanley with champagne and passed it around.

I gotta tell you darlings, I don't think I've ever tasted anything so delicious. And so unsanitary.

So, you wouldn’t just be claiming that Amstel to promote your shitty reality show now would you, honey?

Maybe Amstel should send me the beer for unearthing this conspiracy.

NASCAR Drama: Kurt & Eva Busch Are Splitsville, Heading For Divorce [Photos]

Posted: 29 Jun 2011 03:48 PM PDT

People who follow NASCAR may already know that Kurt Busch and his wife Eva have split, but I don’t watch that stupid redneck crap, so it’s news to me. So is the existence of Eva, who’s smoking hot. Bad news for Kurt, good news for us! Apparently, there’s an unspoken rule in NASCAR journalism that you don’t write about such things. Well, some hack blogger broke that rule yesterday and all hell broke loose.

Jeff Gluck from SB Nation writes,

In other sports, such a public figure’s divorce would be treated as a news story. If Busch was an NFL star, for example, this would have come out months ago.

Not in NASCAR, though. And the obvious question is: Why not?

I’m not sure, to be honest. After all, I’ve known about Busch’s marital problems, too – and didn’t ask him about it nor write about it until now. And I may have never addressed the topic had Busch not been so public with his new flame by bringing her onto pit road, where the whole NASCAR world – along with the TV cameras – can see what’s happening.

The best explanation I can give is, personally, I don’t have the stomach it takes to dig into someone’s relationship and write a story about it. Even as fans on Twitter questioned Eva Busch’s absence and the lack of a wedding ring on Kurt Busch’s finger throughout the last few months, I basically turned a blind eye to the story.

The end result: the two are history.

We care as much about that as we care about dudes driving in circles, though. Let’s try to surmise why this thing fell apart. While I can’t imagine Busch is a Rhodes Scholar, he was already a rich race car driver when he met Eva, who worked as a customer service rep in a bank at the time.

So, you know, there’s the fact that he picked out a yocal to marry. Or maybe their first date could tell us something. It was a blind date at a sports bar called Boardwalk Billy’s in Charlotte set up by Busch’s spotter, who told Eva he was a veterinarian. She found out who he really was when his face came on one of the televisions in the joint.

Here, you might surmise that she immediately saw dollar signs and he couldn’t resist the vag. Alternatively, he took her to a place where he’d obviously be recognized so her panties would fly off immediately.

Either way, someone seems awfully guilty of something in that scenario, beyond being a moron, that is.

Our guess is there was some combination of him not being able to resist her sweet, creamy thighs and her wanting a chunk of his fortune, which makes both parties guilty.

Ah, redneck love.

Yeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaw!
