Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson signed a 5-year, $70 million extension making him the highest paid defensive back in the NFL and it’s worth just a few bucks more than the contract inked by Seahawks All-Pro corner Richard Sherman.

That’s an all world burn!

Michelle Beadle Bitch Slaps Stephen A. Smith

sn_beadle086_576

In an attempt to stay relevant and reclaim audience’s attention, ESPN chose to allow sports “reporter” (I use that term loosely) Stephen A. Smith to weigh in on his thoughts regarding the Ray Rice suspension for domestic violence on this morning’s First Take.  Needless to say, Smith proved that opinions are like a**holes, and everybody has one, but also that some people are them.

In his segment this morning, Smith implied that women are to blame for domestic violence and that they should “try not to provoke men.”

ESPN colleague Michelle Beadle agreed with Smith’s new role as “ESPN’s A-hole of the Year,” and an ESPN-themed Twitstorm ensued.  .

Smith then, showing that he is the master of the side step, took to the twittersphere with an even more long-winded Twitter rant to try to disseminate his budding reputation as a complete a**hole:

STEVE STEVE1 STEVE3 STEVE4 STEVE5 STEVE66

I wonder what the “A” in Stephen A. Smith stands for?  Hmmm, after seeing his “commentary” and reading the tweets, this single yet glamorously beautiful southern gal has an idea, but I dare say it out loud, I wouldn’t want to provoke a man to hit me.

#NBASitcoms Breaks Twitter

As most you know I’m not a big fan of the NBA *yawn* and I avoid writing about those prima donna, ball hogging, show boating, floppers at all costs – unless it’s making fun of LeBron. However, when I saw #NBASitcoms trending across the twitterverse Thursday I just had to pass it along.This is exactly why the Internet was invented. Thanks, Al Gore.

Jose Canseco Attempts Bromancey Make-up with Mark McGwire and Just Ends up Showcasing More of his Crazy

1051

The ’89 Oakland Athletics held a “reunion” of sorts earlier this week to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their World Series win, and, being someone who is stuck in a perpetual loop of his glory days, ol’ Parkway Jose took to Twitter to document the minutiae of his goings on, and spew a lovefest fountain for his former team and teammates.

It seems, however, that one former teammate is still kind of salty over Canseco’s ‘roid use tell-all book, Juiced, and Canseco, needing the limelight of Twitter to function (much like Superman needs Earth’s yellow sun for his strength) chose to broadcast his crazy to former teammate, Mark McGwire, in an attempt to get McGwire to talk to him again:

Of course all of this “please forgive me” pandering falls a little flat when you spell McGwire’s name wrong in your tweets. Big Mac has not spoken to Canseco since this book was released. And who can blame him?  The “book” outed many MLB players for their alleged steroid use in the late 80’s and early 90’s, and this caused a huge s**tstorm for McGwire, who had to endure MLB’s version of the Spanish Inquisition.

McGwire was absent for the anniversary celebration but did videotape a thank you to the Athletics organization and the fans.  He has also made it abundantly clear that he has nothing to say” to Canseco and “won’t ever speak to him again.”

As an Italian woman, I can totally respect McGwire’s dedication and commitment to holding his grudge.  But hey, the last time someone ruined my reputation and thrust me into a sh**storm because they sung like a canary just to make a buck, a home run derby was just the thing we needed to mend fences – like me taking some Louisville-sized swings at her head!
