Drunken, Corona Double-Fisting Charles Barkley Is Destroying Tahoe [i-Team]

Posted: 15 Jul 2011 09:03 AM PDT

We’ve had the Busted Coverage i-Team investigators keeping tabs on Chuck Barkley during his time in Tahoe this week for the American Century Classic & the reports have been superb. There is one certainty during Barkley’s four days, or so, in Tahoe – they’ll need to call in Corona reinforcements. Whether it’s doing the Tony Bruno Show or on stage at the club, a Corona has been in Chuck’s hand.

According to his old swing coach, Hank Haney, the Round Mound of Rebound has been not just buying rounds for his friends but for entire clubs at Harrah’s.

This Tweet came in very early this morning:

Charles Barkley is buying drinks for the whole Vex night club at Harrah’s, the guy is just the best

Having an awesome time at Harrah’s in Tahoe tonight hanging w my man Charles Barkley, believe it or not he hit a few good shots today too

Then we cruise over to the Bruno Show to see a thirsty Chuck talking shop and drinking beers, just as sports-talk radio at a golf tournament should go down.

But the real reason we’re all here is to see the Chuck Man doing the Dougie while double-fisting his ever present Coronas at some club inside Harrah’s.

Here Is Michael Jordan Betting Fans He’ll Hit Green On Tahoe Par 3 [Video]

Posted: 15 Jul 2011 07:52 AM PDT

The American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament got started yesterday in Tahoe with Michael Jordan throwing down bones in a bet with fans that he would hit the green on a Par 3. As if just talking smack to the game’s greatest ever isn’t fun enough for a group of bros, taking money from Jordan would feel even better, right? Well, the bros keep talking trash until MJ walks up to take his shot…and….

Here is the initial betting taking place on a bench. Watch the money being thrown in.

Then comes the real fun – taking MJ’s bones.

Posted: Yesterday

Premise of Video: Jordan has made a bet with a group of bros who, if they lose the bet, will always be able to sit at a Buffalo Wild Wings and relive the day in Tahoe when they bet Jordan he couldn’t hit the green on a Par 3.

Climax of Video: Ice in his veins. Our boy steps up, takes the shot and hits. Money.

Conclusion: If you are going to lose a bet in life, at least get a story out of it. And the bonus shot comes when MJ takes that money, stuffs it in his pocket and goes about his business. Still the greatest.

Were you one of the guys who lost money to MJ? We want to get the first-person account of exactly how this all started.

Jay Cutler Let His Future Wife Out Of The House Wearing This [Photos]

Posted: 15 Jul 2011 07:12 AM PDT

Dude, seriously, you let her walk out of the house and to the Mercedes-Benz Miami Fashion Week Diesel show wearing a 5.2 carat, $125,000 ring? Don’t have a 1.25 backup? Seriously, bro, she’s literally just a broken heal away from taking a digger into the front row black guys and that ring going flying into the cheap seats. C’mon Jay, use your head. Explain to her there is a lockout. Christ, you’re in trouble.

Let’s seriously get a handle on what Cavallari has on her left hand.

According to Aslam Bakshi of Diamond Images USA, Inc., Kristin's diamond is an asscher cut, which is one of the most popular modern cuts.

"Since the diamond is uniquely faceted, it has to be extremely clean or close to flawless, as all imperfections are visible to the naked eye," Bakshi explains to us.

Additionally, the ring boasts 10 round side diamonds, which are estimated to be nearly 1.5 carats. In total, Bakshi estimates the ring to be worth a whopping $125,000!

And she’s walking around in a glass dress! Yes, that is made out of glass! Not kidding! Glass!

Let us remind you, a heal snaps, she goes tumbling, diamond gets cracked up against one of those homeboys dreads and a piece of that dress slices her throat.

Your call, Cuts, but we’d have a sit-down with the fiance about her job choices. Remind her about that 6-year, $48mm piece of paper you signed.

Nick Saban’s Daughter In Twitter War After Cam Newton ESPY Tweet Goes Awry

Posted: 15 Jul 2011 06:29 AM PDT

A single tweet from a 20-something daughter of a SEC football coach can send an entire football conference and at least two fan bases into a frenzy. Don’t believe us? You need to see what Nick Saban’s daughter, Kristen, tweeted Wednesday night as Cam Newton’s face was blasted across ESPN during the ESPYs. Think Ohio State-Michigan is brutal? You ain’t seen nothing yet. TWITTER WAR!

Our friends at FanPhooey.com somehow swam into the Twitter waters to figure out exactly why Kristen Saban was being bombed by the Auburn Twitter Air Force. This seems to be the opening salvo.

@knsaban Best Athlete goes to NOT CAM NEWTON. Cam I hate your face, and your stupid glasses.

Oh, yes she did.

And it was on from Auburn Nation. You don’t drop Hate Twitter Bombs® on Cam Newton without a response from the eastern side of Alabama. Especially when you are Nicky Saban’s daughter. Things got so bad for Kristen, there had to be a ceasefire agreement reached with the Auburn Air Force.

@KnSaban OK, I am SORRY for the Cam comment. But personally attacking me and threatening? Come on people. My comment was harmless. Let it go.

Um, sorry honey, you need to remember that your side tried to kill Auburn’s beloved trees. This isn’t Army-Navy. You can’t have ceasefire agreements by telling the other side to “Let it go.” Ain’t happening. You’ll now need to be slapped around on Paul Finebaum’s show for at least the next 7-8 on-air days.

If you want to go back and relive this war that eventually led to Ms. Saban deleting her Twitter account, go here.

Know This L.A. Dodgers Hat-Wearing Maryland Bank Robber? [Cuff 'Em]

Posted: 15 Jul 2011 05:25 AM PDT

It’s a new series we’re developing for Cuff ‘Em where we’ll take a look at the baseball cap of choice for bank robbers. Yesterday we got things started with Cleveland Indians guy. Today our investigators head to Edgewater, Maryland where this Dodgers fan decided he wanted to make an illegal withdrawal from a M&T Bank. But this isn’t the normal cap & sunglasses heist. Yep, that’s hosiery over his face.

From the Patch.com network of community news sites that’ll eventually put newspapers out of business:

Police said the robbery happened just after 9 a.m. at the bank in the 3100 block of Solomons Island Road.

The robber did not appear to have a weapon. He came in and demanded money, police said. The teller complied, handing over an undisclosed amount of money.

The bank robber then ran away, heading west into the community of Southdown Shores.

We suspect this wasn’t the dude’s first rodeo. Just after 9 a.m.? Um, he knew those tellers had a full load of cash in the morning. Clue #1: Does your bro constantly wear a Dodgers cap even though he lives in Maryland? Clue #2: Does your boy do his banking before live mid-morning ESPN SportsCenter marathons?

There you go, we’ve already nearly helped crack this case wide open.

Scared to turn on your bro? We aren’t. Give us the details. In fact, we’ll take the reward money and fly out and treat you to a Baltimore Ravens game in October. Deal?

Florida Marlins Actually Constructing Upper Deck In New Ballpark [Morning Twitpics]

Posted: 15 Jul 2011 04:15 AM PDT

It’ll be the smallest ballpark in the MLB with only 37,000 seats, but will have two 600-gallon salt water fish tanks encased in bulletproof glass. The Marlins (believe it or not) are trucking along with the new ballpark the city/county was pimp-slapped into building. The big questions for MLB is if anyone will care whether there is a new facility to watch the Marlins. Joe Robbie’s upper deck has been closed & the Marlins are averaging 17k a game.

Also unknown to us, the Florida Marlins will be known as the Miami Marlins starting during the 2012 season.

Totally scraping that team identity of a franchise that has actually won two World Series seems like the perfect way to increase attendance.

LeBron James Playing Basketball In Cleveland While Heat Trashed At ESPYs [Video]

Posted: 14 Jul 2011 03:03 PM PDT

If for some reason you watched the ESPYs last night, you know the Miami Heat and their championship-less Big Three were the butt of a few a jokes, particularly LeBron James.

Bron Bron himself apparently wanted no part of the jokes or ESPN’s money grab… I mean, awards show. So what did he do?

He returned to the scene of the crime, Cleveland, where he made an entire fanbase, an entire city and probably most of a state hate his self-serving, duplicitous guts. Ironically, it was year after James used the same network he spurned last night — ESPN — to produce his one-hour jerkoff session called “The Decision,” where he told the world he was dumping Cleveland for a better-looking girlfriend named Miami.

Instead of going to the ESPYs, James played in a Fungame Sports Summer League game at The Word, a church in the city he called home for seven seasons. From what we can tell from the Twitter action, it seems LeBron was playing with an Akron team.

By the looks of it, he had some decent competition and being that it wasn’t a playoff game, he probably didn’t choke, either.
