The Stephen Curry & Ayesha Alexander Wedding Gift Registry Is Knife-y

Posted: 08 Jul 2011 09:27 AM PDT

Since it’s the new fad to track down athlete wedding gift registry listings we figured it was time to check in with Stephen Curry & Ayesha Alexander, who are marrying July 30. This registry was slightly a tough nut to crack because Steph isn’t listed as the one of the registrants on the Williams-Sonoma account. His mother, Sonya, is along with the future bride. The highlights: organic towels & a $120 salad serving bowl. 

Before you ask, no, Steph won’t be getting a gift from Busted Coverage. Make a few more all-star teams and we can talk.

Don’t judge these gift requests too harshly. Let’s remember that Steph is now locked out of the NBA and risks not making a paycheck on his $2.7 million per year for many, many months.

Our observations on the wedding registry:

• Not a big fan of $189 knives

• $300 blender? Seriously, what could that possibly do that a $60 Target blender can’t?

• Birch handle steak knives – love ‘em

• A friggin’ asparagus pot! Had no idea those even existed

• And finally, a $90 bottle of olive oil

Congrats to these two lovely kids as they embark on a life of cooking and waiting for the NBA lockout to end.

*Is there a wedding registry out there that we’ve overlooked? An offensive lineman getting hitched and registered at Bass Pro Shops? Tip us off.

Paige Duke Nude Photo Scandal Twist: Sister Tweeting Kardashians, Ellen

Posted: 08 Jul 2011 07:46 AM PDT

Well, the normal 24-hour news cycle for B-list scandals such as Paige Duke’s 6-year-old naked photos published on the Internet isn’t going to die. But that could be her own fault at this point. The normal routine for most B-list scandals is to remain quiet for 2 weeks while the dust settles. Then maybe hire a PR team & get on Good Morning America. Nope, Paige & her sister Katie are going nuts to keep this story hot. Tweeting the Kardashians?

There’s a good chance we would have awakened this morning and not plan a follow-up to yesterday’s blockbuster, but a quick scan of the Duke sister Twitter accounts shocked us. The two are literally teaming up on a media blitz with this “Miss Sprint Cup Fired” story. Radio stations are falling over themselves trying to get the former Clemson student to do an in-studio.

Woody and Wilcox have died and gone to Heaven.

Then there is Creepy Jeffrey from 106.5 getting a Paige Duke reTweet for digging up old appearances. But the bread is buttered by the tweets sent out last night by Katie. The obvious person who needs to know about Paige’s ordeal would be Kim Kardashian, right? And Khloe? And Ellen?

C’mon, rookies, you should know that Ellen doesn’t get into the tragic stories where a 20-something needs to express regret. That’s what the Today Show and Good Morning America are for. You should be tweeting @GiannaToboniABC, a GMA producer who would likely love to fly the Duke sisters to NYC for a Monday appearance.

And what can the Kardashians do for you? Want exposure? Try Fox & Friends. We suggest tweeting this guy – @kilmeade.

He’ll either get you on the show or fly down to South Carolina for a date. Either way, it’s a win-win.

MMA Cop Sam “Big Chocolate” McCoy Downloading BBW Porn [Discipline 'Em]

Posted: 08 Jul 2011 06:35 AM PDT

Mixing it up a little bit here this morning with a Discipline ‘Em instead of the always sad Cuff ‘Ems. Let’s all give it up to Sam “Big Chocolate” McCoy, a Florida cop and MMA fighter who will be getting a couple weeks off from his job for downloading some porn. McCoy, who just weeks ago was trying out for Bellator, is said to have downloaded such titles as “Adult Obese Dating Thong Big Boobs” on his police laptop. Of course Sam had an excuse.

According to the Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale:

It seems some porn was found on his city-issued computer: 26 pornographic pictures on his laptop, 104 pictures of women in erotic bathing suits or underwear and 23 sexually suggestive videos from YouTube.com, according to the police investigation.

McCoy told investigators he was looking for jujitsu videos and clicked on other links that “peaked my interest.”

Those “interests” included links to titles such as “Adult Obese Dating Thong Big Boobs,” “My Juicy Blonde,” and “Bigger Black Butts.”

The investigation began in December after a city official found McCoy, who’s married, was part of an adult social networking site for swingers.

Hmm, maybe after things slow down this morning we’ll send Kevin the Intern in search of My Juicy Blonde. That’ll give him something to do besides tweeting Paris Hilton.

Sad times for Sam. Not only will he be hitting the Farks, Reddits, Diggs of the world but this one will probably get picked up by the sports bloggers who smell blood in the water. You take the search terms MMA and Bigger Black Butts and that’s a story. Just wait, there’ll be at least 20-25 sites writing about Sam this afternoon.

*Before we forget, this guy was disciplined in April for taking Favre-like dong shots of himself while on duty.

Shannon Stone Falls To His Death At Rangers Game For Foul Ball [Video]

Posted: 08 Jul 2011 04:59 AM PDT

Shannon Stone took his son to last night’s A’s-Rangers game. It ended tragically for Shannon after he fell 20-feet in an attempt to secure a foul ball thrown into the stands by Josh Hamilton. 39 years old, a firefighter. Dead. Just like that. According to the AP, “Athletics reliever Brad Ziegler was in tears after the game when he found out the man had died.” “They had him on a stretcher. He said, ‘Please check on my son. My son was up there by himself.’

There really are no words for this. Tragic is simply too easy to say.

Posted: Last night

Premise of Video: It’s all right there in front of you. Stone goes for the ball and over he goes. 20-foot drop.

Climax of Video: To all those who are drilling the A’s broadcasters this morning, enough. Do you realize how many times these guys see fans falling down rows of stairs, falling over railings, etc. It happens. You take millions of fans over the course of 160 games and it’s going to happen.

Conclusion: We’ve said something bad was going to happen this year, but never figured it would come to this. Baseball has had fans jumping out of the stands, people scaling walls, fans streaking, fans getting Tasered, etc. Just don’t know what else to say.

Wladimir Klitschko Taunts Crybaby David Haye Via This Silent Film [Video]

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 03:34 PM PDT

You can’t say heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko doesn’t have a sense of humor.

He was relatively quiet in comparison to challenger David Haye during the lead-up to their title bout last Saturday. Haye, the Brit who once wore a shirt bearing an image of him standing over Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko’s decapitated bodies holding their heads, tried to antagonize Klitschko by refusing to shake his hand at press conferences, calling him a control freak and by releasing an iPhone game that allowed players to knock Klitschko’s head off.

Klitschko did most of his talking in the ring, winning a unanimous decision in a fight that didn’t ever appear to be a contest. Afterward Haye blamed a broken pinky toe for affecting his ability to punch with power.

Well, almost a week after the fight, Klitschko has finally gotten into the taunting spirit. Of course, he still isn’t saying anything.

Instead, Klitschko released a silent video summary of the fight via his YouTube channel, letting pictures do the talking for him.

Insult: Debbie & Roger Clemens Forced To Stand In Court Cafeteria Line

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 02:55 PM PDT

Um, we’ve seen older WAGs make combacks, like when Brenda Warner went from looking like Ivan Drago to a busty Red Cross volunteer.  Debbie Clemens has always been in superior shape thanks to admitted HGH use and an extensive workout regimen. The new pics speak for themselves for a woman in her late 40s. And NY media have been keeping a close eye on her during this trial. How close? They’ve been tweeting about her in a court cafeteria line.

Jim Baumbach, a Newsday reporter ordered to cover the trial, went into tweet-mode during lunch at the D.C. federal courthouse:

Lunch break in the courthouse. Jury selection will resume at 1:30 p.m.

It’s a little surreal to see Roger and Debbie Clemens on line with lunch trays in the court cafeteria. Feels like an ESPN commercial.

Later:

Current prospective juror being interviewed says he is a Nationals and Phillies fan. Prosecutor: ‘I guess that sets up conflicts some days.’

Later:

Judge just asked Yankees fan for his feelings of MLB. “Too many teams, shouldn’t be a salary cap.” Judge asked why. “I’m a Yankees fan.”

In other words, you MUST START following the tweets coming out of this courtroom. The national media (i.e. ESPN) isn’t covering the hilarity with this case. Jim less than 2k followers, which is a complete shame. Just imagine all the fun you are going to have tomorrow when the two sides try to find more jurors. Could be another 50 people called to hear 80 questions.

We’re hooked.

High School Football Coach Kills Man With One Punch In Vegas Casino

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 02:05 PM PDT

Remember the time on Jersey Shore when a drunken Ronnie ran up to that dude in the street who was talking shit and cold-cocked him, knocking him out with one punch?

Afterward he yelled, “one punch, kid!”

Of course, he later got arrested. We imagine that’s kind of how Benjamin Hawkins, an assistant football coach at Bradford County High School in Starke, Fla., knocked out John Massie in Vegas early Wednesday.

That is, with one little twist. This incident ended with a dead body.

Hawkins and Massie, who’s from Utah, got into a verbal altercation in a restroom at O’Shea’s Casino. The verbal sparring escalated to the point where Hawkins punched Massie in the face — a blow that ultimately killed him.

Massie, who is white, made a comment to Hawkins about “a black man in a yellow shirt.” They left the restroom with Hawkins following Massie. Massie stopped in front of a Burger King restaurant, put his hands in his pockets, and then said something to Hawkins.

Police say Hawkins said something back to Massie, then turned his back as if to walk away. Hawkins then turned around very quickly, and reportedly struck Massie on the left jaw. Massie fell straight onto his back/head, at which time his hands came out of his pockets according to police.

Massie was pronounced dead at 1:08 a.m. at the Desert Springs Hospital.

Hawkins was booked on one count of open murder.

We don’t want to jump to conclusions, but we can’t recall an instance when it paid to be a racist prick.

As Smokey would say, “you got knocked the f#$% out!”

Jason Whitlock Does Vegas: Implants & Dan Le Batard Straight Chillin’ [Gallery]

Posted: 07 Jul 2011 01:09 PM PDT

There was big news out of Vegas over the 4th besides the dude at Casino Royale who killed another guy with a single punch to the head. Jason Whitlock and his hunger was in the ‘hood and had a modern day sports media Rat Pack with him. It was Whitlock, Dan Le Batard (Mrs. Le Batard) and Jay Glazer just hangin’ with each other for a bro weekend of boobs, food, UFC and pool action. Sorry, ladies, no shots of Jason’s rack.

Whitlock tweeted Saturday night:

OK, I’m liqoured up. Done tweeting from Vegas.

Then he went to the UFC fights with Le Batard where they decided it was time to tame the bellies by sucking down 3 chili dogs and 4 of those monster draft beers. Or maybe not. It’s just how we envision any night out with former Ball State stud. Then the boys hit the craps table with Glazer. Not sure when the pool and strip club come into play because this Vegas trip is all a blur to us and it’s a Thursday afternoon and we’re writing about a Jason Whitlock bro weekend.

Anyway, Whits managed to snap off a few rounds of implants on his smart phone that were immediately sent to Bob Ryan with taunts of “I’m about to eat a banana split off those.”

Or that’s just how we envision it going down.

*Trust us, the women in this gallery didn’t sleep with Whitlock. Keep telling yourself that. Over and over.

Have photos of yourself and/or team pounding drinks with Whitlock and the bros in Vegas? Send ‘em in.
