Arkansas Fires Petrino: “Engaged in Pattern of Misleading and Manipulative Behavior”

According to the Razorback’s athletic director Jeff Long, it wasn’t so much that football coach Bobby “Evil Kenevil” Petrino had a girlfriend on the side. It was the fact that he lied–apparently repeatedly–about having a girlfriend on the side, did not disclose that 25-year-old Jessica Dorrell was his mistress when she beat out 159 other applicants for a job on his staff; or that he had given her $20,000 for…

Video: “Dirty Old Man” Referee

First off: What the hell sport is this? We’ve watched this thing like ten times and still can’t figure out what they’re doing.  And–heaven forbid–it looks like men AND women playing together!  What kind of madness is this? And more importantly, what points are scored when the referee straddles one of your female players from behind? Is that a “goal”, a “touchback” or the infamous “rear admiral?” Dirty Old Referee…

Video: “Batman” Streaker Entertains at Baltimore Orioles Opening Day

Just another opening day in Baltimore. Sunshine, hotdogs, a cold beer, and some half-naked guy dressed like Batman (including a cape) running onto the field, blowing kisses to the fans.  We’ll call him a streaker, but you young whipper-snappers should know that–back in the day–you had to be naked to actually be a streaker.

Video: Worst Cheap Shot in Baseball Ever?

Ever?  That covers a lot of ground, but we’ve certainly never seen anything like it. Have you? There appears to be a base hit, a player runs to second and then there’s a disturbance near first base. As everyone runs over there to pretend to fight, someone comes running in from the outfight to lay some smack down. (21 seconds into the clip) Anyone know more about who these teams…
