Probably The Craziest Detail Of The Whole Tiger Woods DUI Saga
Tiger Woods apparently couldn’t pass any of the tasks asked of him to perform of the field sobriety test when he was arrested for DUI. Shockingly the one task he allegedly could perform was the Romberg Alphabet. What is the Romberg Alphabet? Glad you asked. It is reciting the national anthem backwards. What?!? Yup. Tiger Woods couldn’t stand on one foot but somehow was able to say the national anthem backwards. I find that hard to believe.
A New LaMelo Ball Mixtape Came Out And It’s Not Good
LaVar Ball has been notorious the last few months of letting everyone know how good his sons are at playing basketball. He has received a lot of criticism from various media outlets that he is placing too much pressure on his kids. He has put them under a microscope of scrutiny and this new mixtape of his youngest son, LaMelo Ball, is proof of just that.
Buster Posey Wanted Nothing To Do With The Latest Bench Clearing Brawl
When a batter chooses to charge the mound after being hit by a pitch or thrown at by a pitcher, it is the catcher’s job to make sure he gets in-between the batter and the pitcher in order to protect his pitcher from getting hurt. Well apparently San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey missed this memo. When his pitcher Hunter Strickland hit Washington Nationals Bryce Harper, Posey left his pitcher out to dry. Posey’s response when questioned on why he didn’t have Strickland’s back “The only thing I’m catching today is baseballs, not hands.”
John Clayton Is The Latest Victim Of The ESPN Layoffs
Long time ESPN NFL Reporter John Clayton was the latest victim of the recent ESPN firings of their on-air staffers. This came as a shock to many since Clayton had been with ESPN since August of 1995. He remains host of a daily radio show on KIRO-AM in Seattle, an ESPN affiliate that is not owned by Disney.

Seattle Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman put out a challenge to a local high school student. Sherman said if high school student Hershai James became an honor student during her senior year, he’d grant her a personally funded scholarship. Well James raised here GPA to a 3.0 and Sherman, being the outstanding man that he is, has stated that he is going to honor his promise.
Maxime Hamou Pulls A Joe Namath And Gets Kicked Out Of French Open
Tennis player Maxime Hamou got kicked out of the French Open for “inappropriate behaviour.” During a live TV interview Hamou repeatedly tried to kiss a woman reporter. The reporter’s constant dismissal still didn’t discourage Hamou as he kept being persistent in his advancements. I guess we can say this was a French kiss gone bad.
Guy Sneaks Catfish Into Game 1 Of The Stanley Cup Final
A Nashville Predators fan drove 9 hours with a catfish in his pants in order for him to be able to throw it on the ice during game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final in an effort to curse the opposing team, Pittsburgh Penguins. His efforts ended up being in vain as he was arrested and charged and the Penguins won the game 5-3.
