Kate Upton Vanity Fair shoot: gratuitous boobies post


kate-upton

The Kate Upton Vanity Fair issue is out, which means we get to see the Kate Upton Vanity Fair shoot now! And my page views were done the past couple days. And Saturdays are usually the weakest web traffic day of the week, so time for a token post about boobies with zero news value.

Yeah, we do a lot of those kind of posts in the summer. That sports black hole gets long and boring. The boobies posts are must-click. And you feel guilt for clicking on it, but oh well. Here we go again.

Creepy K.C. Chiefs fan harassing Melissa Stark (video)


melissa-stark

Poor Melissa Stark. Why did the NFL subject her to being put in harm’s way of the cretins? And it’s not just Melissa Stark, it’s any woman, or man, because both genders have to deal with the dregs of society when networks do these dumb live shows interacting with the fans.

Look at the creepy guy on the right in the Kansas City Chiefs Joe Montana jersey. Watch him stare at the body of Melissa Stark, lick his fingers and smile.

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Golf Channel’s Holly Sonders: photos and bio


holly sonders

The Golf Channel’s Holly Sonders is rather easy on the eyes, as you can see. And she’s a great golfer. And she has a new eye-catching photo spread in next month’s Golf Digest. Holly Sonders is also an MSU Spartan. Go Green!
Holly Sonders, who can be seen on Morning Drive and School of Golf on the Golf Channel was a four-year member of the Michigan State golf team, and the Lady Spartans won a Big 10 title during her time there.
Holly Sonders may be the most exciting Spartans figure this side of Tom Izzo. And maybe both of them have enough sway among the Michigan State people to get them to stop doing this! DUMB BEHAVIOR!

Was Kristen Saban (Nick Saban daughter) Gameday sign over the line?


kristen-saban

(Update Kristen Saban testifies in court)

Kristen Saban, daughter of Crimson Tide Coach Nick Saban, and arch-nemesis of Phi Mu sorority sister Sarah Grimes, was the subject of a very controversial sign on ESPN College Gameday this morning. How did this one get past the ESPN Gameday Sign police?

Is this Nick Saban daughter sign over the line? (Last week, the Lizzy Seeberg sign was definitely way out of bounds, and I would add the “Potato Famine” sign, a couple of Everett Golson signs were in very poor taste too)

Back to Kristen Saban and the lawsuit, she allegedly beat her sorority sis Grimes. I don’t have time to get into it now, but here’s the gist.

Manchester United Champions League match should help Fox Sports 1


fox-sports-1

We’re just days from the UEFA Champions League Match between Manchester United and Germany’s Bayer Leverkusen live from Old Trafford, Tuesday, Sept. 17 (1 PM CDT) on Fox Sports 1. Manchester City and reigning victors of the prestigious club tournament, Bayern Munich, also take the field on Tuesday.

Maybe the giant size fan base of Manchester United and the high television ratings they generate can help bolster Fox Sports 1 ‘s way less than expected ratings?

Nicole Briscoe articulates on Danica Patrick (exclusive)


nicole-briscoe

In part one of my exclusive with ESPN NASCAR reporter Nicole Briscoe, we discuss Danica Patrick, who like Briscoe attended Hononegah Community High School in Rockton IL. Danica was a cheerleader on the JV while Nicole Briscoe was on the varsity squad. Briscoe was a couple years ahead in school, and they weren’t close, but they did know each other.

(Update: part two of this interview, where she gets rather critical of her beloved Green Bay Packers)

Following NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup Media Day, the top 12 drivers will took part in ‘NASCAR Contenders Live’ — a fan Q&A event held at the Grand Ballroom of Navy Pier.

The Internet’s Melissa Stark rumors


melissa-stark

I see it every Sunday. Or at least the time on Sunday when Melissa Stark is on television. Here’s our Stark photo gallery by the way. People reach the site by searching for “Melissa Stark rumor(s)”. I encounter something very similar every time the Packers are on tv with the following search strings: “Aaron Rodgers gay” “Aaron Rodgers gay rumors” “Is Aaron Rodgers gay.”

Here’s an exploration of that issue.

Back to Stark, here’s what I found online about the NFL Network reporter.

Fox Sports 1 has bigger problems than just Crowd Goes Wild


fox-sports

I guess the Fox Sports 1 hashtag/marketing slogan “The 1 is Here” really should have been “The 0.1 is Here.”

After all, Crowd Goes Wild registered a 0.1 rating. And I hate to bring up Crowd Goes Wild again, but it’s hard not to when every time you flip on FS1, they’re promoting CGW quite a bit. The even worked a message of “please watch it” into their soccer highlights on Fox Sports Live.

That’s the first major problem with Fox Sports 1, they keep banging us over the head with Regis Philbin, Katie Nolan, the really unfunny stand-up comedian guy etc. Just forget about that and work on the other programming issues to resolve. You made a mistake- you went all in on a show with like 27 cohosts, none of which are interesting or entertaining.
