I would rather see Kevin Ware’s gruesome injury ten times over than have the image of this disgusting woman in this disgusting shirt entrenched in my mind.
You know the whole notion of how people with tattoos and piercings are more fun to see naked? She’s not one of them.
I’m so glad the St. Louis Blues got bounced in the playoffs. She might have actually shown her “playoff beard” in the second round.
How on earth did Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau come in eighth place when Derrick Rose (former league MVP), Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Kirk Hinrich missed a combined total of 137 games (roughly 34 games per player) and he still finished fifth in the Eastern Conference and turned in a top-3 defense in the NBA?
George Karl wouldn’t have been my choice for Coach of the Year, but he did turn in an impressive regular season. But I’d like to see him with that same Bulls roster with the same number of missed games from one of the league’s best players in Rose, and still finish top-5 in the conference.
I don’t care how weak people may think the eastern conference is, Thibs and his team are as tough as they get.
If there was a seminar for young football players on how to throw your career away as quick as possible, Titus Young would be the main focal point.
Drafted in the second round of 2011, out of the league before 2013 even begins, and no hope whatsoever in sight.
Sent home by the Detroit Lions on three different occasions, intentionally sabotaging his own team during a game, telling former high school coaches that he’s better than teammate Calvin Johnson, and tweeting to the world that he’s not about to change his ways.
And now he gets arrested twice in 15 hours. It’s not easy being this stupid.
Terrell Owens is an avid bowler and in the three games he bowled, he rolled a 185, 129 and 161.
I’m no bowling expert, but I’m pretty sure those aren’t exactly impressive scores. I haven’t bowled in probably seven years and I can roll a 129.
T.O. is a “celebrity owner” of the Dallas Strikers in the new PBA league. I’m sure this is lining up to be another financial boom for Owens.
I’m not sure what’s worse: his bowling skills or the fact that he said learning how to roll strikes isn’t all that different from training for football?
As it turns out, the woman in this picture is Filomena Tobias, the widow of former CNBC commentator Seth Tobias.
If you read the backstory of this woman in the link below the picture, this image actually wouldn’t surprise you. But I don’t get the disconnect some fans have with athletes these days. And most of the evidence can be seen on twitter.
People like Filomena are shoving middle fingers in the faces of players, saying the most ridiculous things you would never say if you were in a closed room with said athlete, and they’re doing it as if they aren’t actual people.
What would she have done if Noah decided to grab her hand and break her fingers? He would’ve had a right, no? He could’ve used her ridiculous actions to state self defense since her hand was right in his face.
I’m actually glad she ended up being the one caught on camera and that her “story” came out. For the record, some people still believe she had something to do with the death of her late husband, Seth.
Basically everything I said earlier regarding Young applies here, again.
Not that I would know, but it has to be incredibly hard to get arrested three times in one week, on three different charges no less.
The Week of Titus Young
- May 5th 12:01am - Suspicion of Driving Under the Influence
- May 5th 2:22pm - Attempted jumping the fence of a tow yard trying to steal his own car back that was towed after DUI
- May 10th - Breaking into a home and fighting with deputies after a foot chase
Hey Titus, have you ever met Maurice Clarett? I bet you two would have a lot to talk about.
Imagine Harden developing as he has, Durant getting better like he has (he would’ve) and Westbrook making room for both. How would that not have been the most enjoyable team in the known universe? Everybody’s in a better place now. We should be happy they’ve found that more settled place. But the Thunder were a dynamic unit with Harden, full of possibility, tension, and a million ways to make you drop your jaw. At the same time, it would be great to see them play together, the three of them, as the players they’ve grown into this season. We owe it to ourselves to grieve. We owe it to ourselves to put aside sound explanations and wish it hadn’t happen. That’s the best we’re going to do. And while it’s not comfort, at least it’s honest about why that team moved us—and why a lot of us enjoy the NBA in the first place. - Bethlehem Shoals, GQ
