Maria Sharapova Face Makin’ Machine: Wimbledon Edition [14 Photos]

Posted: 28 Jun 2011 09:49 AM PDT

About 10 days ago Busted Coverage warned you guys that Maria Sharapova was back and possibly ready to win a Grand Slam title. In today’s 4th rounder she trounced her opponent 6-1, 6-1. Along the way we’ve also noticed a pattern from Sharapova, besides the grunting madness. Facial expressions. Many of them. So many, in fact, that we’ve pegged Kevin The Intern to keep track of them during Wimbledon. Here is his first dump of 14 Great Sharapova Faces!

Gilbert Arenas & Daughter Planking [Photos]

Posted: 28 Jun 2011 08:24 AM PDT

Our old buddy Gilbert Arenas was up to his antics again last night as he entertained his Twitter followers on a Monday with photos of him planking – sorta. Probably not cool to his young, impressionable fans was the shot where Agent Zero is planking face down in a hot tub. There’s also the shot of his daughter planking – sorta. Please NBA, lockout these guys. It’s content gold. Bored NFLers and NBAers might be the best thing to ever happen to the Internet.

Rehoboth Beach Legend Nick Pappas & Fart Machine Busted [Cuff 'Em]

Posted: 28 Jun 2011 06:57 AM PDT

As we mentioned a few days back, weird things happen on the beaches of this nation when the temps hit 85 and the nutjobs try to escape the lack of air conditioning. Take the case of the ultimate Rehoboth Beach (Delaware) 81-year-old Nick Pappas (seen above). He’s known as the “Old Fart” and loves fart jokes and to use his fart machine on unsuspecting tourists. The problem for Nick came late last week when he decided to use the fart machine on life guards. Not good, Nick.

From DelMarVaNow.com:

But on June 22, Rehoboth Beach lifeguards didn’t find Pappas’ tricks very amusing.

According to Chief Keith Banks of the Rehoboth Beach Police Department, Pappas was arrested at about 3:15 p.m. for disorderly conduct, after allegedly he refused to leave the lifeguard station.

“He came in with his fart machine, which was interfering with transmission because the lifeguards couldn’t hear the radio,” Banks said. “He was asked to leave but he (proceeded to) squirt the lifeguards with water and began yelling and cursing in front of children.”

Pappas, once an amusement, is now becoming more of a dirty old geezer and the locals are starting to become annoyed with the antics.

Pappas said there’s no way his fart machine interfered with the lifeguards’ radio transmission because the noise only lasts four or five seconds and isn’t very loud. He added police confiscated his machine to use as evidence in Pappas’ July 6 court appearance.

That’s right, his fart machine has been taken away. It’s sad when drastic measures have to be taken, but it’s a great chance for Pappas to join the 21st Century and go online with his fart operations. Just think of all the fart machine options online. 10 minutes on the Fart Sound Board and Nicky will be hooked. Promise.

The Hottest L.A. Dodgers Jersey On Market – Chapter 11 [Morning Twitpic]

Posted: 28 Jun 2011 05:09 AM PDT

Want to know how lame MLB.com is? Visit this link and try to personalize a Dodgers jersey to “Chapter 11.” You’ll get the following message: Your current entry cannot be processed. Language deemed inappropriate, derogatory, or profane will not be accepted. Please create a new entry. Love ya, MLB. You do realize this action is just going to prompt more idiots to make these jerseys, right? *Shaking head.

Update: MLB hasn’t killed Chaptur 11 – yet. React accordingly.

SI Swimsuit Model Chrissy Teigen 9/11 Joke Totally Bombs [Burnt Toast]

Burnt Toast

The Greatest Tweets in the History of the Internet* (*In the last 24 hours)

NCAA-SH MONEY

@ESPN4D: Sources: Kentucky to extend John Calipari’s contract by two years – ESPN http://es.pn/izI08e

Someone find me a kitten. Better yet, a baby wildcat, so I can drop-kick it across the room. Actually on second thought….I can’t rip Kentucky. The NCAA is the one to blame. If it really cared about integrity, John Calipari wouldn’t be allowed within 200 yards of a University. Reason number #5,338 why the NCAA is a joke

@BryanDFisher: College coaches salaries: Nick Saban ($5.9m) Mack Brown ($5.1m), John Calipari ($4.5m), Bob Stoops ($4.3m)

Remember kids if you are going to cheat, make sure you win!!!! If you do, you too can be filthy rich!

@SportsByBrooks: New Ole Miss Rebel Tweeted he traded his Range Rover for new truck. On 1st day of class. [Account now deleted]

Nothing to see here…..everyone move along. I’m always interested in 1 of 2 Twitter Defenses. Either the “My Account Got Hacked” which is still the Gold Standard when it comes to bad PR from Twitter, and the nuclear option of just deleting the account. As if that doesn’t raise more eyebrows.

Twitter Potpourri

@RealSkipBayless: Today tried to convince Texans’ Eric Winston that Houston’s hometown hero Vince Young would take Texans to playoffs. Schaub not the answer.

@RealSkipBayless: Vince Young: national championship game MVP, 2 PBowls, 30-17 as NFL starter. Enough said. GIVE THE MAN ANOTHER CHANCE. In Houston.

Damn….If only I could get paid $600,000 a year to be such a fount of football knowledge. Vince Young was a fine player in college. Mentally and physically not gifted enough to play on a high NFL level. The notion that Young is better than Schaub makes baby Jesus cry.

@DDockett: So you gonna lie and say I’m speeding then you wanna search my car! Get the F*ck ouutta here! Better go get a warrant *turns up radio*

Lovely……Darnell Dockett got pulled over today, and decided to tweet the entire traffic stop. Above was one of his gems. I guess you can’t be surprised when the website he has linked to account is www.HungLikeAHorse.com. I’m assuming that’s NSFW.

@ChrissyTeigen – Classy

Really Chrissy? I mean really?……

@ChrissyTeigen: If you’re ever having trouble falling asleep, ask a new yorker what they were doing on 9/11.

OH. MY. Set the bar awfully high with that one Miss Teigen……Let’s just say that didn’t go over well which lead to this….

@ChrissyTeigen: That’s making fun of the storytellers not 9/11. I often say offensive things but if that angered you then you’re the one with the 8 hr story

No. I’m pretty sure I’m offended about the mocking of 9/11 New Yorker stories…..she continues…..

@ChrissyTeigen: jesus christ. replace “9/11″ with “jfk assassination” or “michael jackson’s death” and relax.

So 9/11 = JFK Assassination = Michael Jackson’s Death…….okayyyyyyy.

Rumor: ESPN Hiring Charissa Thompson [Photos]

Posted: 27 Jun 2011 02:26 PM PDT

Erin Andrews can kiss the title of hottest chick working for EPSN goodbye.

The leader had signed former Fox Sports sideline reporter Charissa Thompson to a deal that includes her own show on ESPN2. Thompson will host Numbers Never Lie, a daily half-hour show featuring an expert and a player debating the day’s stories from a statistical perspective and making predictions, which will almost assuredly never come true.

From the ESPN press release:

Numbers Never Lie melds news stories — both serious and light — and fantasy sports to debate a variety of topics and make predictions. The host, joined by a former player and an expert, will weigh in on everything from the ten most overrated players to the number of strikeouts a pitcher will get that night. During each show the trio will analyze and make picks in the ESPN.com Streak for the Cash game to provide insight into the night's most compelling match-ups.

The show, which will air at 3 p.m. ET, is somewhat patterned after ESPN2′s SportsNation, which features another hot blond, Michelle Beadle, and blowhard Colin Cowherd debating the day’s stories from a fan perspective.

Thompson, who’s 29, has covered the NFL, college football, college basketball, Major League Baseball, the World Cup and the NHL for such outlets as Fox, the Big Ten Network, Versus and Yahoo! Sports. She also served as co-host of The Best Damn Sports Show Period.

Unfortunately, her Twitter account isn’t terribly exciting.

Maybe put some nude pics up there and pretend you were hacked or something.

Roethlisberger Wedding Registry $5,000 Still To Buy; BC Splurges On Napkin

Posted: 27 Jun 2011 12:45 PM PDT

It’s the summer of wedding gift registries around here. First it was our purchase of a knife sharpener for Tony Romo’s nuptials, then a $25 napkin for Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries and now a $5 Lenox napkin for Ben Roethlisberger’s wedding. The big news, right now, surrounding the Roethlisberger ceremony has to be the nearly $5,000 in gifts THAT HAVEN’T been bought for the Steelers multi-millionaire QB and his fiance Ashley Harlan.

One look at the registry shows that the great people of Steelers Nation might now realize they can actually buy a $5 napkin or $6 measuring cup and possibly get a thank you card from their hero. Take that thank you note, throw it on eBay and end up making a few bucks. Gotta use your heads, people.

We went with a napkin. One. No need to overpay for these kids.

What about a bachelor party? The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review asked him about where he’d be getting bombed.

Roethlisberger said he has not experienced any pre-wedding jitters, and when asked if he is having a bachelor party, he laughed.

“I am not,” he said. “I had one probably two weeks ago. It was 36 holes at Firestone (Country Club in Ohio). It was great.”

Do work, Internet. Any of you in Akron who might of had a run-in with Big Ben are encouraged to step forward and give us details and photos.
