We’ve seen Joe Flacco as The Situation and Jimmy Clausen as a teletubby, but Rajon Rondo’s Tiger Woods outfit tops all of the athlete costumes put out this year.
If anything Paul Pierce came in a close second. Would probably get disqualified at closer examination for including Celtics gear in his Frogger-like suit though.
The sling is a brilliant addition on Rondo’s part, and he pulls it off so smugly. From the left it appears to be Rondo, Jermaine O’Neal as Mr. T, Glen Davis in his pajamas, Delonte West as Guy Fawkes, no idea on Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce as a frog(?).
Seems strange that Shaq wasn’t included. Maybe he was Von Wafer’s bodyguard for Halloween.
The anchorman reprised his role after all on Saturday, as USC alum and Anchorman star Will Ferrell stopped by the set of ESPN’s College GameDay.
Ferrell promoted his new movie Megamind on the show, but also posed as the celebrity picker of the week for the GameDay segment.
If there was any question before, my theory that Lee Corso has gone senile sprouted wings with the two minute clip below. I don’t know how the man has evaded the narcissist lists that include the likes of LeBron James and Alex Rodriguez. Oh right, he’s wearing a mask.
Erin Andrews also interviewed Ferrell, who’s sarcastic humor never ceases to amuse.
It’s been way too long since we’ve seen a viral video from Chris Bosh, so naturally the Miami Heat star teamed up with the king of viral videos, Will Ferrell’s brainchild Funny or Die.
Bosh is meter maid Chris Justice, the classic case of an underdog with no respect and nothing to lose. Once he gets a lead on a big case, not even his apparent OCD and an illegally parked car can stop him.
There’s really nothing else to say to hype up the video, except I hope you like a barrage of sly puns.
New York Yankees fan by summer, Los Angeles Lakers fan by fall is the rough sporting lifestyle of teen popstar and Toronto native Justin Bieber.
Bieber was courtside for the Lakers ring ceremony and opening night game against the Houston Rockets. No word on whether Jack Nicholson showed Bieber a warm welcome, but you can bet anybody who challenges Jack as the most famous Lakers fan is going to get the cold stare.
Maybe he isn’t a bandwagon fan after all, as he is shown here clapping while the Lake Show have fallen to a whopping four point deficit.
The Fox TV show ‘Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?’ is somehow still on the air, but to their credit a “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Week” was held back in May.
Abigail Klein is arguably the most popular of the group, and started off the series as a contestant on the show. She seemed to hold her own and avoid the ditzy blonde cheerleader stereotype, and even managed to avoid giving host Jeff Foxworthy a dirty look.
Klein has since moved to Los Angeles and retired from the Cowboys cheerleading squad, so I assume by giving up a position that prestigious she will be pursuing a career in Hollywood.
The latest Nike spots have been so innovative and unique I’m not sure they can be referred to as commercials anymore. Half the time I’m not even sure if they’re selling or promoting a product, if not for the sake of the viewer’s entertainment.
Comedian Kevin Hart plays the part of Dwyane Wade’s sidekick in the latest action-packed Nike thriller. The ad clears the air as to who is the “Batman” of South Beach, although LeBron James has apparently retained his self-proclaimed title of “King.”
The end of the video says the quest to capture the rings is to be continued, but if the Heat’s opening loss against the Celtics is any indication of what’s to come this season, they might have to wait 365 days to dominate another day.
With all the controversy surrounding college athletes and their ability to get paid, the basketball players at Oklahoma State University certainly have no room to complain with their new $4 million locker room.
Ok State freshmen basketball players Mike Cobbins, Brian Williams and Markel Brown did a tour of the newly renovated facilities, in a 13 minute MTV Cribs-esque video.
Some of the features include multiple flat screen TVs, a universal soundsystem with wall controls in every room, an orange felt pool table, a bar/kitchen area and marble staircases.
I assume Oklahoma State alumnus T. Boone Pickens contributed to the renovations. Pickens has donated a whopping total of $400 million to the school, with around $265 million going towards the athletic program.
