Just keeping our female readership, who totally lose ‘it’ when a photo of Tebow’s veins popping out of a v-neck, happy this morning. Your boy is in L.A. this week for the ESPYs and the big news, via our Twitter sources, is that Hulk has officially caught the Fedora Fever. Adjust your schedules accordingly, jersey chasers, Timmy will be in Tahoe on Thursday to compete in the American Century Golf Championship.

Brian Wilson Shows Off Blonde Pickoff Move At MLB All-Star Party [20 Photos]

Posted: 12 Jul 2011 07:49 AM PDT

We had a conversation with our old friend David Freedman of Tempe12 fame yesterday afternoon. BC had ambitions of getting a reporter into a MLB Home Run Derby afterparty so the initial reaction was to contact David. Come to find out Freedman had his Tempe12 ladies scheduled to work the Marucci Bats party at the Scottsdale W. But no go on getting our reporter into that bash. As a consolation prize, we had intel officers keeping tabs on Twitter accounts.

Literally the first thing that pops up in our inbox from the intel officers is an email detailing Tempe12 model Jillian Rahm.

Her Twitter bio: I love life, I love Jesus, and I believe that what we have to give in this life is is far more fulfilling than anything we could ever recieve.

And there it was, a photo with the baseball Prince of Darkness, Brian Wilson. Not sure who the friend is. Hang tight, we’ll have that tidbit by lunch.

Did you party with a MLB all star last night in Scottsdale? Want to share your story?

Roger Clemens Perjury Trial Lunch Break Tweets: Salad & Chili

Posted: 12 Jul 2011 07:08 AM PDT

We’ve noticed an excellent trend out of the New York sports reporters covering the Roger Clemens perjury trial. While the normal tweet updates concerning jury selection nearly leave us choking on our dark chocolate acai covered blueberries, it’s the court lunch breaks when the real reporting gets going. Newsday’s Jim Baumbach and the NY Daily News sports i-Team have been updating us on Roger’s lunch activities.

Why is this important to BC?

Nothing reduces a super-rich athlete to commoner status like having to eat the same federal courthouse cafeteria food as us losers. Clemens isn’t eating too many Whole Foods ala carte meals. But for the next few weeks he’ll have little choice as his D.C. court case rolls on. And it seems the lunch tweets are just starting to get interesting.

Baumbach, under direct orders from Busted Coverage, beat his NYDN competitors to the cafeteria yesterday and scored this scoop.

RogerClemens spotted in courtroom cafeteria again, this time eyeing the salad station. I’m going with chicken parm special.

But it was the i-Team who pinpointed exactly how Rocket would be washing down his salad.

Voir dire resumes at the #Clemens trial. Roger was in the cafeteria with a salad and Nantucket Nectar. No Debbie sightings today.

Then we have the lead image. That is a photo taken by Rocket’s sister, Janet, of the future hall-of-famer hitting a D.C. farmer’s market. If you want a good ‘follow’ during this trial, hit her up for some wacky commentary, such as:

FACT: According to @dan_shaughnessy Clemens & Boggs not friends. NOT TRUE CLEMENS MOM MADE SPECIAL CHICKEN RECIPE & NAMED IT 4 BOGGS. “4 for 4 Chicken.” LOVED IT.

Robinson Cano Derby Girlfriend Isn’t Blonde Road Beefer From 2009 [Photos]

Posted: 12 Jul 2011 06:25 AM PDT

Got a text message from our ESPN insider at 1 a.m. EST this morning: “This was the girl Cano showed up with,” said the tipster. That was in reference to the Baseball Tonight set piece Cano did for ESPN after winning the MLB Home Run Derby. Why is the girlfriend news? We think it’s going to show you Cano’s maturity level. It seems he has officially moved on from blondes. Is it possible the legendary Cano has gone soft? We hope not.

In late 2009 we received a cable from a chick who wanted us to see Robinson Cano working the road beefers at his Miami suite. This tip came in just a few months after our initial report on Cano & Melky Cabrera popping bottles with a couple of jersey chasing Fordham students.

There were no reports in 2010 and now comes a 28-year-old Cano possibly settling down from the road beefer scene. No way the new chick is a beefer. All athletes know you keep the beefers far away from ESPN execs and the fans.

So this must be serious.

Know of a MLB, NFL, NBA or NHLer with a road beefer that needs profiled? Drop us an email.

WVU Linebacker Branko Busick Popped For Armed Robbery [Cuff 'Em]

Posted: 12 Jul 2011 05:43 AM PDT

Of course we were getting tired of the NFL players being arrested for DUI & disorderly conduct. Give us a college scholarship athlete going armed robbery any day of the week and it’s instant Cuff ‘Em material. Enter West Virginia linebacker Branko Busick, who is not having a very good summer. He was arrested this week after allegedly holding a gun to a guy and demanding money.

59 News in West Virginia has your details:

Officers responded to a call, shortly after 5 p.m. Monday from a man who said another man had threatened him with a gun at an apartment on High Street.

The caller claimed that a man had pointed a gun at him and two acquaintances and demanded money from them while they were inside the apartment, police said.

After telling the man that he had no money, the man struck him repeatedly with the gun before forcing him out of the apartment and onto the street, according to police.

Busick was identified as one of the males and was taken into custody, charged with armed robbery, police said.

It’s actually surprising for us to not have more stories this summer about footballers thieving, stealing condoms, ripping off Wal Marts, etc. Maybe more have turned to selling stupid Orange Bowl rings.

Anyway, Branko’s father was a former WWF wrestler. Remember Big Bully Busick? We don’t either. It’s always good when a kid gets in trouble and we get to rack our brains remembering a heal from back in the day. Thanks, Branko.

Fan Makes Diving Derby Catch Into Chase Park Pool, Saves Beer! [Morning Twitpic]

Posted: 12 Jul 2011 04:28 AM PDT

We had a sneaking suspicion that the RideNow Powersports Pool at Chase Park would become a focal point for last night’s home run derby activities. But a guy jumping into the pool – with beer in hand – to snag a ball away from bikini chicks? Can’t write that script. It happened and ESPN cameras gave the guy his due, resulting in YouTube videos of the fun.

Posted: Last night

Premise of Video: Guy is chasing home run balls instead of the bikini chicks in the pool. Adrian Gonzalez is hitting and launches one 415 feet to the pool zone. Time for tank top guy to do his thing.

Climax of Video: That beer never goes under. Look at the form.

Conclusion: $100 says single, tank top guy got out of the pool without hugging those chicks who just saved his life and he went to brag to his friends about his home run ball. Just another baseball dork.

Sixers Jrue Holiday & Women’s World Cup Soccer Player Lauren Cheney May Be Most Wholesome Couple Ever

Posted: 11 Jul 2011 03:22 PM PDT

It came to our attention that Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday and U.S. Women’s World Cup Soccer player Lauren Cheney are dating and it appears they’re perfect for each other.

They’re both athletes, both went to UCLA and they’re both Bible thumpers.

Holiday was in Dresden, Germany Sunday for the U.S. women’s victory over Brazil in Women's World Cup quarterfinals. Before the game Cheney Tweeted this to Holiday, which might make you throw up in your mouth a little.

The best boyfriend in the world @Jrue_Holiday11, thank you for being apart of this. I love you!

To which Holiday replied:

@laurencheney8 i love you too.. i wouldnt miss it for the world

Awwwww.

Their wholesomeness doesn’t stop there, though.

Holiday sports a bible verse, John 15:5, in the about section of his Twitter page. The verse is “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

Not to be outdone, Cheney has one in her Twitter page’s about section as well, 2 Chronicles 16:9. The verse is “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war.”

It’s like they’re some sort of creepy, saccharine robots with great athletic prowess made in a lab somewhere.

Hottest Mavs Fan Heather O. Wants Hottest Rangers Fan Crown [21 Photos]

Posted: 11 Jul 2011 02:58 PM PDT

Now, before you guys destroy us for posting a “Hottest Rangers….Gallery”…gallery, you need to understand that we were in negotiations with infamous #FriskyFriday model @heathero14 before the dude fell out of the stands Thursday night. There is a time for mourning and then we move on. Our original goal last week was to sex up Bud Selig’s all-star game. Heather was game. She owned a Rangers jersey and a shirt. Add a smart phone & we get this gallery.

Originally the “World’s Hottest Mavs Fan,” Heather is set on destroying the Texas competition when it comes to Hottest championships.

Us: Are you a Rangers fan? Would you mind taking some photos for us?

Heather: yea i am lol ill take some :) i have a rangers shirt and jersey lemme shower right fast and ill tke some :)

The emails started rolling in a few hours later. 3 photos at a time until a 21-pic gallery had been built to perfection.
