There is one person that you do not want to mess with in the Chinese Basketball Association and his name is Stephon Marbury. That man is a God in the CBA. He’s their Michael Jordan. Starbury went over there back in 2010 and hasn’t left yet. He reinvented his career, got himself 3 rings and a statue in less than a decade, all while still slinging his affordable sneaker line. Ballin’ is an understatement.
So let’s just say Jimmer Fredette is barking up the wrong tree when he goes after Marbury here. Not in China, buddy. That may fly in D-League, but when you come to Beikong there are consequences for your actions. I’ll say this, though: I didn’t think Jimmer had this kind of fire in him. But if you come at the king, you best not miss.
Side note: I feel like we don’t talk enough about how big of a star Stephon Marbury is in China. It’s insane.
Every year we think Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka, and their kids, twins Gideon and Harper, can’t possibly top their Halloween costumes from the year before, but they somehow always do just that. And this year was obviously no exception, with the family opting for a «Carnival of Curiosities» theme for their flawless group costumes. Neil donned a creepy ringmaster getup, while David played right into this year’s obsession with creepy clowns with his terrifying ensemble, which had more than a hint of American Horror Story‘s Twisty the Clown about it. When it came to their adorable kids, Gideon was a strong man complete with a twisty mustache, and Harper made the perfect bearded lady.
Only days before Halloween, Neil posted an Instagram snap from a Cirque du Soleil show, describing it as «my happy place,» and also shared photos from behind the scenes of the «Carnivorous Carnival» set from his Netflix show A Series of Unfortunate Events. Clearly he took some serious inspiration from his recent adventures when it came to this year’s Halloween theme!
The Morning Briefing isn’t that fun to put together these days because it feels like compiling a dossier on the dismantling of our democracy, but it’s important. And I’m gonna do it. But we all need this palate cleanser first: Here’s Natalie Tysdale, a morning show anchor out of Denver, who tries to eat the world’s spiciest chip. I think she inhaled, like, some chip dust, and that’s all it took to elicit the voms.
That’s where we are, folks: A local news anchor throwing up is more palatable than the morning Trump round-up. As Tysdale’s co-anchor notes, «This is some serious action.»
How important is tonight for the Eagles? They can pretty much lock up a playoff spot with a win against the Redskins. NFL Playoff Probabilities has the Eagles at 92% probability of making the playoffs — heading into tonight’s game. The other big shocker after Sunday is that the Saints are all the way up to a 71% probability of getting in. Yes, the Saints. The Patriots are at 66%; the Dolphins are at 52%. And now the Bills are at 49% probability of getting in. This is a crazy NFL season in case you didn’t notice.
Numbers from :
Bears: 1st team to win a game with 7-or-fewer pass attempts AND 5-or-fewer 1st downs since the Browns did so on Dec. 3, 1950 vs Eagles
Outside of the Super Bowl XLII halftime anniversary, it was a bad scene at MetLife Stadium last night. The Giants offense stunk up the joint yet again, Ben McAdoo threw his quarterback under the bus, and some fans were so disinterested in the product that they started watching IG live makeup tutorials.
But hey, at least some people seated in the upper deck were treated to some action when two fans came to blows because one had vomited on the other. Our guy in the Odell Beckham Jr. jersey learned the hard way that you can’t go too hard if you can’t handle your liquor:
Everyone made sure to point out OBJ to security, but in reality they did him a solid by freeing him from football hell.
We don’t want to jump the gun or anything, but it might be fair to question if Cutty still possesses that rocket arm after he nearly nailed a Chargers cheerleader with one of the worst Hail Mary throws you’ll ever see:
Bama fans sitting in a Florida State section during Saturday’s game at the Mercedes Benz Stadium are being credited by BC as being responsible for the first ever fan fight at MB Stadium. Now there’s video of what looks like a Bama fan from the brawl in the stands throwing a woman to the concrete in a concourse brawl.
We have two videos to compare here to see if we indeed have a Bammer launching a woman. Let’s go to the woman getting launched. Notice the visor. The red collar shirt. The stripes. Also notice Big Ol Bammer in the white polo.
I guess we can throw everything I said about college football fans fighting in my Florida-Michigan fan fight post straight out the window. Basically I said that it takes a few weeks before we start seeing the good CFB fan fight videos because we usually get them out of conference games. Hand up, I was totally wrong.
We have a couple of drunk Bammers here just picking a fight with anyone who was around, while their team was putting a beat down on the field. It looks like they were pretty much surrounded by Florida State fans and I’m guessing some words were said leading to beer flying through the air and Frat Boy Fred there in the white suckering punching people.
So congrats to Bama and FSU fans for the first documented fight at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
I’m still trying to figure out what they were mad about
Everybody was pissed last night…here are two FSU fans going at it
Last night, we had quite possibly the biggest fight in the history of sports between Mayweather and McGregor, but I’m not going to get into that when there are 10,000 other sites better at breaking down what happened than us.
What I will get into though, is this lady fight that happened after the Rams and Chargers preseason game. The game was promoted as a “Fight For LA” (yes, a preseason game) and boy did it live up to the hype. Maybe not the actual on-field product, but afterwards it sure did.
This is just a little preview of what we can expect now that there’s 2 teams in LA. Like I said in my blog when the Rams and Chargers fought in practice, LA fans just LOVE to fight. Preseason, regular season, practice, it doesn’t matter. Get ready for a season full of this.
LET’S GOOOOO. This is what I’m talking about. This is what we need from a little afternoon August baseball. Nothing is going on right now, the world is just fiending for football, we’re all trying to just get through this next week and a half, and then Miguel Cabrera comes out of nowhere on a Thursday afternoon to give everybody a little entertainment.
In the past, I’ve shit all over basebrawls because they deserve it. They never amount to anything and it’s just jawing and people getting held back. But THIS is a basebrawl. I’m talking haymakers everywhere, dog piles, dudes on a dead sprint from the bullpen. It’s just fantastic.
