Lights Out! That was Merriman’s nickname on the playing field and I am sure it will come into play in a career in the WWE. Former Chargers and Bills linebacker Shawne Merriman has reportedly signed a deal to become part of WWE. His hot streak burned out very quickly in the NFL and he was never the same player he was the first couple years in his career. Hopefully his career in the ring will last longer and he definitely has the personality to be a wrestler.
Dirt? Pine tar? What was that substance on Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda’s hand last night during a game against the Red Sox. Pineda said it was dirt but it damn sure doesn’t look like dirt. Any illegal substance on a pitchers hand is considered automatic grounds for ejection and being suspended. Funny thing was at the end of the game, neither team acted like it was a big deal. Hit the jump.
This is refreshing. Usually companies that have endorsements with athletes run fast at the slightest bad news surrounding a player and are quick to cancel the contract. Not in Colin Kaepernick’s case though. We reported yesterday that Kaepernick Is the subject of a sexual assault investigation stemming from an alleged incident at a Miami hotel. Not many details have been released, but as of now police say there is no evidence to suggest anything foul took place. One of Colin’s biggest endorsements, MusclePharm is standing behind him.

Don’t mess with Rihanna or you have to deal with her navy! U.S. Olympian LoLo Jones is finding that out the hard way today after taking a subtle jab at Rihanna in a tweet. Jones tweeted about being happy for Drake hosting the ESPY awards but feeling bad he will have to see all of Rihanna’s ex boo’s there. Jones is basically saying Rihanna is a groupie or a little promiscuous at the very least. I wish Rihanna saw it herself her reply would of probably been classic. But her fans held her down instead. Hit the jump.
Hands down the BEST crossover of this entire NBA season!!. Warriors Andre Iguodala put Nuggets Quincy Miller on more than skates, he damn near put him on his deathbed. Of course he had to mess it up by missing the lay up. C’mon Son!
For the second time in three years, the UConn Huskies are on top of the college basketball world as they defeated Kentucky 60-54 to win the 2014 NCAA tournament. Shabazz Napier led UConn with 22 points as the Huskies won in a scenario you would of never imagined just a few weeks ago. They looked like a team that might not even make the tournament, let alone with in. The same plot played out in 2011 when Kemba Walker led UConn on an improbable run to the championship. It was a great game on both side, especially for two teams who nobody expected to be there. Congrats to coach Kevin Ollie and the 2014 UConn Huskies. It was definitely a crazy tournament.
These kids were not playing! A game between Central Arkansas and Arkansas Little Rock ended in a crazy way after a manager from one of the teams pushed the opposing manager to the ground. Immediately all hell broke lose and punches were flying and people were being choked out.
Anyone with a pair of eyes, with the exception of two judges at ringside saw that Manny Pacquiao dominated Timothy Bradley in their first fight back in 2012. Those two judges ( and I use that word loosely ) somehow saw different and Bradley was chosen as the winner. Pacquiao has finally broken his silence about the first fight and he seems intent on showing the world in the rematch he was the real winner.
Why they mad at JR? Don’t hate on the man cause he gets attention from females. But especially don’t hate on him just cause your girl follows him on twitter. Seems like he has been catching heat from dudes who are feeling insecure about who their girl follows. Social networks will be the death of us, lol. Hit the jump to see what JR said.
Listen to Charles Barkley talk long enough and you are guaranteed to laugh. He has a way with words that most people in sports can only wish to have. Last night he appeared on the Conan show when the topic of tipping came up and Barkley said the more successful a person is they should tip better. He mentioned how he tipped a blackjack dealer $25,000 one time. Somehow the topic got switched to Jordan & Pippen and Barkley was honest about his best friend. I hope MJ is really not as cheap as Charles says.
