DAILY RAYS OF SUNSHINE

TUBBO PUTS HIS FAT FOOT IN HIS MOUTH

Andruw Jones committed the cardinal sin when it comes to pro athletes. He ripped the fans in Los Angeles.

Read The Sports Pig’s account of T.J. Simers v. Jones and how “tubbo” put a nail in his own coffin.

DAN LE BATARD SHOCKS THE SPORTS WORLD!!!

Miami Herald columnist did something in his final story that I thought I’d never see in the history of the media.

LeBatard is taking a sabbatical and actually admits his work was sub-standard.

I’ve always been driven nuts by the hypocrisy in the sports media.

For example….writers will kill someone like Shaq for rapping and acting in addition to his NBA career. The thought is that the athlete is spreading himself too thin to be 100% effective at his craft. Yet there are a load of sportswriters who have added radio and television shows to their job responsibilities. There’s rarely a word that their job performance will be substandard because they’re spread too thin. Unless they get fired for that reason like Stephen A. Smith was by ESPN1050 and the Philly Daily News.  

LeBatard actually admitted on Sunday that he’s not doing good work for the Herald…

Besides, I’m doing you, the reader, a disservice when I go to write from an NFL Draft that could not possibly bore me more at this point in my life. And I don’t deserve to be paid for a diluted version of a column that I value too much to cheapen with a lack of passion. My column has lacked life for a while now because I’m stretched too thin with other obligations.

I wonder if Peter Vecsey is spread too thin? Or is he just lazy and incompetent? Last week, he got nabbed twice making up stories in the N.Y. Post.

DUMBEST COMMERCIAL EVER

Why would the WNBA compare itself to men’s rec leagues? How does insulting 35-year old men drive them to the TV to watch women’s pro ball? 

OJ MAYO SCANDAL…WRITERS CALLED IT YEARS AGO

CBSSports.com’s Gregg Doyel warned USC….Burned by Bush, USC should be wary of Mayo 

Yahoo’s Dan Wetzel blames NCAA president Miles Brand

Good example of the problem with college hoops recruitng. Yahoo’s story on the Pump Brothers

IS JENNIFER ANISTON REALLY A COUGAR?

I think it’s too early to call Aniston a cougar. She is hanging with 30-year old John Mayer but the 39-year old is far from being in the cougar category. This from the Everything2.com….

A woman over the age of 35 who is single or divorced (the more times, the better) who seeks out younger males for sex. Cougars can be tacky women with big hair and loud mouths or they can be graceful and eloquent. Either way, their attraction to younger men is always apparent in their social habits and body language.

Calling Aniston a cougar suggests that young men like her for her money and that’s she’s on her last legs looks-wise. I don’t think that’s the case with Jen. Do you?

Check out the rest of the Aniston-Mayer pictures.

BRITS ARE OUT-BOOBING US

The U.S. has clearly fallen in status in terms of international competition. Our basketball and baseball teams are middle of the pack now after years of dominance. That said, we could always hang our hats on our success in the Battle of the Breasts. Pam Anderson, Dolly Parton, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Russell, Jayne Mansfield, Anna Nicole Smith, Scarlett Johannson, Jenna Jameson, Kim Kardashian, Mariah Carey, Tara Reid, etc. teamed up to secure American domination. 

The Brits have stepped up with two competitors who are turning the BOTB world on its ears. We’ve already chronicled the Keeley Hazell (NSFW) explosion. She’s got some BIG competition coming from a fellow Brit, Gemma Atkinson. Wow!!
