Mark Cuban Online Photo Catalog Now Includes This 69er From The 70s

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 09:59 AM PDT

There are groundbreaking Internet pieces and then there is the post that went live on Deadspin today. In the blog post, Mark Cuban is narrating his 1970s rugby party photos from his days at Indiana. Folks, this is why we wake up in the morning. And Cuban doesn’t hold back. You want pics of him nearly teabagging a coed? It’s there. You want him going 69 on the same coed? Yep, here it is. The guy owns sports culture right now.

Cuban writes,

Did we do stupid shit back then? Absolutely. Even then, we knew it was stupid. We also knew it was harmless. We could beat the shit out of each other on the field and know that we would come together afterwards and drink and be stupid and be friends. Anyone who has played the sport will tell you what a beautiful thing it is.

Whether it’s treating his players like rock stars, taking a leak with the Larry O’Brien or treating the trophy like the Stanley Cup, the guy has his finger on the pulse of what makes a sports fan tick. He’s inside your head. You want to be him. You want half of his money. You want him to like you.

And it’s all ok. Don’t be ashamed.

Miss Sprint Cup Paige Duke Nude Photo Scandal Sends Internet Into Frenzy!

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 09:28 AM PDT

It has been nearly two years since Paige Duke was first profiled on Busted Coverage. It was the Summer of ’09 and we were running a Hottest Of The SEC post and needed a headliner. Paige was the girl, but we never provided you animals with her last name. Well, guess who’s in the news this morning for 5 VERY, VERY NSFW photos that were posted to the Internet and since removed. Too late. She’s lost her job as Miss Sprint Cup. Guess who has that ’09 gallery?

Paige says the offending photos, which we’ve seen the NSFW versions (nope can’t show ‘em here), were taken when she was 18 and living in a Clemson dorm. The photos were sent to a boyfriend (now an ex who just might play in the NFL) and that he was the only person to ever receive them.

(Here are the edited, SFW versions.)

Duke’s attorneys have been working to have the six or seven images, which depict a fully nude Duke in her college dorm room at Clemson University six years ago,  pulled from the Internet.  Duke has yet to speak to her ex-boyfriend.  “We’re still investigating how these pictures got out there.  All we know is they came from his computer, he’s the only person i sent them to,” Duke says.

A week and a half ago, Sprint terminated Duke over the phone.  She says she was not offered a chance to explain the pictures, but understands she violated a morality clause in her contract.  She says, “I lost my job, the best job I could have ever asked for, it was perfect for me.”

Whatever the case, Paige isn’t going into hiding. Last night it was an interview with Fox Charlotte and today it’s back to work at an animal hospital. Oh, and the Twitter account is still rocking. We also see that our friends at Playboy are ‘Following.’ Stay tuned.

WAG Amanda McCarthy’s Birthday Tweet To Brandon Is Very Ballsy [Photos]

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 07:41 AM PDT

We’d never heard of Amanda McCarthy, wife of Oakland A’s pitcher Brandon, until a chance meeting on Twitter yesterday. It seems that she’s an active WAG. Not only does she do road trips to wherever the A’s are playing, she also documents these adventures via Twitter and a brand new blog. Did we mention she was a fashion model? The real reason we’re here today is to appreciate the fantastic tweet Amanda sent out for Brandon’s birthday (today).

After a brief 10-15 minute analyzation of both McCarthy Twitter accounts, we must say that they might be the best B-list WAG couple tandem pumping out 140-character messages. Amanda complains about spam bots sending her porn and Brandon is angered by the ASPCA Sarah Mclachlan tear-jerker commercials.

Brandon has also been known to trash-tweet Aaron Rodgers. Folks, looking for a new power couple to follow and maybe throw on a VH1 reality show? Here you go. Brandon is 27. No word on Amanda but the guess is 26. Maybe a series where Amanda travels across the country, following her husband to various ballparks where she has to battle WAGs from other teams for the best seats in the house.

In one episode, Minka Kelly is having a bad day but is craving popcorn and a prime seat at Yankee Stadium. Um, guess where Amanda is sitting? Yep, in Minka’s seat. There is a confrontation. Both are wearing white wife beaters on a hot, August night. Suddenly, Mrs. McCarthy slaps the barrel out of Minka’s hands and there is a WAG-off.

Think about it, VH1. We’ll be waiting.

Natalie Gulbis Fishing Is Highlight Of 2011 Women’s U.S. Open [14 Photos]

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 06:19 AM PDT

You know why American men don’t see more of Natalie Gulbis? Because there are only 5 U.S. stops on the LPGA Tour between Memorial Day and Labor Day. It just happens that this weekend will be one of the last chances to see Gulbis and her fellow LPGAers (U.S. Open week) on U.S. soil – this year. So imagine our delight when this photo crossed our desks of Natalie going rod & reel at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. Time for an update & gallery!

Let’s also realize for a minute that Gulbis, the pretty face of the LPGA, only has 77,000 Twitter followers. It’s not that she’s inactive. To the contrary. 3,200 tweets is ample interaction with fans. The problem seems to be that men have no idea the sport still exists. Looking at Google News today, there are less than 20 mentions of “Natalie Gulbis U.S. Open.”

Then there is the Denver Post with today’s headline that makes sense. “Good looks a game plan for some in women’s golf.” Yeah, then they totally screw it up with a photo of Paula Creamer! And there is no mention of Gulbis until the 6th paragraph. But the writer does open the story with mention of German Sandra Gal who has less than 5,000 Twitter followers.

*Shaking head*

Anyway, here is what Natalie Gulbis has been up to while in Colorado Springs. Fishing! It’s a good thing the local media hasn’t had some fun with this. One friggin’ mention in the press about Gulbis fishing. One. This is what we care about, right guys? The oddity.

That Smiling Ogre Georgia Fan Beat Up Mentally Disabled Publix Worker [Cuff 'Em]

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 05:13 AM PDT

There are scumbags in this world and then there is Georgia Bulldogs’ fan Ryan Keys. You see, he walks into grocery stores and has no problem attacking a mentally disabled worker who complimented his Dogs t-shirt. The SEC is the best football conference in the land. It also contains more assholes per square capita than any football conference in the land. Remember LSU fan who made a noose for his black co-worker (a Georgia fan)? Bastards are sick. Need proof? Here.

According to News4 in Jacksonville:

“Hey, I like your shirt,” 26-year-old James Wall said is what he told two men who he said beat him in the parking lot of his Northside Publix. “I was getting ready to go outside and get carts, and that’s when it happened.”Wall has worked at the store on Duval Station Road for the past seven years.

His family said he has the mental capacity of a teenager.On Friday, Wall was assigned to collect the shopping carts in the parking lot when out of nowhere “he hit me three times, and I fell down,” he said.Police said Ryan Keys, 27, who’s 6 feet 4 inches tall and 275 pounds, punched Wall in the face.

Wall said he complimented Keys on his Georgia Bulldogs T-shirt, and for no apparent reason, Wall said, Keys was offended by the statement and decided to attack him.

Now the moron is sitting in jail on aggravated battery charges. Yep, a felony. Hope this turd gets a roommate who is a 6-8, 325 and a Florida fan who enjoys dudes. Then can talk SEC football and bite each others pillows.

George Hincapie’s Tour De France Leg Veins Are Worm-y [Morning Twitpic]

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 04:14 AM PDT

For those who haven’t realized, the Tour de France is already to stage 6 of the race to Paris. For those of us who work from home, we know that a morning in July without listening to Phil Liggett call a Tour is like December 25th without Santa Claus. He might be an English broadcaster, but he’s American Pie to our lobes. But today is all about George Hincapie & those leg veins. We figure it isn’t that big of a deal. George is racing this morning. He’s in 13th place.

Roy Williams’ Ex Brooke Daniels Dumps WR For U. Of Houston Infielder [23 Photos]

Posted: 06 Jul 2011 02:35 PM PDT

Brooke Daniels, the former Miss Texas being sued by Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams, has apparently gone from the majors to the minors.

Daniels is now dating University of Houston infielder David Murphy.

If we can attain one thing from Daniels, who held the Miss Texas crown in 2009, it’s that she likes mediocrity in her athletes. Williams hasn’t topped 600 yards receiving since Dallas traded the Detroit Lions a first-round pick for him. Daniels batted a sub-par .241 in only 29 at-bats with Houston in 2011.

At least Murphy has an excuse — he completed treatment for acute lymphoid leukemia in January after being diagnosed with the disease in September of 2007.

Daniels’ and Murphy’s relationship came to light earlier today when we discovered the following tweet on her account.

A baller on the field, cancer survivor, and a great person.Follow a charmer @DMMurphy10 also,he is dating the gorgeous missTX @Bdanielstx09

Why were we snooping around Daniels’ Twitter account? Well, that’s what we do because we’re like a virtual version of Aqualung.

Actually, no, it was the aforementioned lawsuit, silly.

That tale of woe goes something like this.

Willaims used to date Daniels and asked her to marry him in February, after the couple dated for close to a year. She declined and here’s where it gets dicey (and stupid).

It turns out Williams mailed a video proposal to Daniels, along with a $76,000 engagement ring.

That’s right, he didn’t take her out to dinner or get down on one knee. Williams recorded his proposal, shoved it in an envelope with the engagement ring and dropped it in the mail.

Anyway, Williams decided to sue Daniels and her father Michael when he asked for the ring back and didn’t receive it.

Maybe it was lost in the mail?

Williams’ lawsuit alleges Brooke claimed to have lost the ring, which would be something a gold-digging whore might say. The jury on that issue remains out, but Murphy better get in the batting cage just to be safe.

An insurance investigation prompted by Williams determined the ring had not been lost or stolen. In reality, Brooke’s father has the ring and claims Williams told his daughter to keep the ring and has proof in writing.

“He said to [Brooke], ‘I’m not like a lot of people, I don’t want the ring back. You’ll eventually come back to me,’ and she didn’t,” Michael Daniels said to the Odessa American.

He now plans to return it to avoid any further legal issues.

A temporary injunction hearing is set for Friday, when we’re sure all of this will be cleared up. In the meantime, take a look at what batting .241, being a great guy and a cancer survivor gets you.

9 Greatest Tweets From Lorenzo Neal DUI Witness Kevin Spring

Posted: 06 Jul 2011 12:02 PM PDT

In case you are just getting up or missed this morning’s Cuff ‘Em, let us reintroduce you to Kevin Spring, the key witness in the Lorenzo Neal 4th of July DUI incident in Fresno, California. Spring, as close to a modern day Jeff Spicoli as you’ll see on the nightly news, stole our hearts with his key witness testimony to ABC30 (VIDEO HERE – MUST SEE). Of course we sent our own i-Team in search of this instant legend and found his Twitter account. Let’s just say we’re even more smitten.

While our Indian researchers can’t pinpoint his sexuality, Spring wastes little time in his Twitter timeline (not active since ’10) talking about penis, vagina, drugs and sports. It’s like this guy could write for Busted Coverage, minus the penis garbage.

Little did we expect to find out that Spring is a sports fan, he only follows/followed 21 accounts including: Lamar Odom, Shaq, Steve Nash, Gary Payton, Derek Fisher and Dwight Howard.

If there was ever a sports version on Antoine Dodson, here is your guy. Now we just need a video genius to tackle the project. Feel like auto tuning Spring’s interview? Drop us a line.
