Stupid Sports: Ritchie Incognito, Bacon and My Ode to Sharleen

And…we’re back with more things that made me chuckle. But first, sales here’s a great video of Kevin Hart versus the Manchester United goalie Joe Hart.

They have the same last name. Hey maybe they’re related!

I’m pretty over this whole Ritchie Incognito story, store but I found this marginally entertaining. So apparently he’s got some anger issues (wait, what?) that are so severe (OMG really?) that he took a bat to his Ferrari in a fit of rage. Personally, I’m shocked that a person who uses inappropriate language and has threatened to kill someone has problem with rage. Huh. Would have never guessed.

Look, I’m not a car groupie. Although I know the difference between a Porsche and Pontiac, I just don’t give a sh!t. With that said, aren’t Ferrari’s like half a million dollars? I would Google that, but naw I’m good. If I had a car that was more expensive than my house, I wouldn’t throw a temper tantrum and muck it up with a bat…no matter how rich I am.

In an effort to understand people more – and because my 30th birthday is looming and I figure I should try to find this elusive thing called “maturity” – I’m going to rationalize this out.

…*thinking*…

Nope. I got nothing.

Quick Hits

This is a new section where the basics of the story just themselves. Because sometimes a photo really does speak a thousand words. And we’ll start with a news network that mixed up two gay black men because, well obvi. Hey CNN, not all black people look alike! Who should be more offended here: black people or gay people? Or America in general for shotty journalism on the third best news network?

Jason Collins plays basketball. That guy is clearly in a football uniform (and he’s also clearly Michael Sam). CNN: where great journalism happens.

Les Miles, LSU’s head football coach, got a commitment from a 13 year old. Yes. College football is that big of a deal. Does this kid even have facial hair yet?

Syracuse loses to Duke. Syracuse coach, Jim Boeheim loses his sh!t and gets escorted out by the police. No really.


A minor-league baseball team has bacon-themed uniforms. Not a typo. Wait what was that? PETA is on line two? Uh oh….

Ummmmm….???? Photo credit: Twitter (of course)

And last, but definitely not least, Rich Eisen finally breaks a six-second 40-yard dash! Only to be embarrassed by his performance through modern technology. Jewish Vanilla – what a good sport!

Sharleen vs. Andi: who dumped Juan Pablo better?

Sharleen meeting Juan Pablo. What the hell was she doing on this show?

Yeah, you knew it was coming. Look, I get why Andi bowed out. Juan Pablo seems pretty self absorbed and stupid. And this isn’t a language barrier, this is a personality flaw. With that said, the fact that Andi wasted all that time trying to get him to understand her feelings when he clearly gave no shits about your feelings in the first place made me yearn for Sharleen, the dignified opera singer who left with a whole lot less fuss.

Sharleen knew he was idiot. She also knew he was hot. So she stuck around long enough to make out with him, teach him a few English phrases and then left when it mattered (before he met her family because…please). So Sharleen, thank you for bowing out with class and being there for the right reasons: the travel.
