Ohio State’s Aaron Craft had one final shot to win the game but missed a running jump shot at the buzzer.

Allie LaForce March Madness sideline

CBS is kicking of March Madness 2014 with their A+ Team featuring sideline reporter Allie LaForce looking amazing roaming court side of the (11)Dayton vs (6)Ohio State matchup.

If you are a big fan of LaForce, make sure you check out our Allie LaForce gallery of her hottest photos.

I don’t remember the Allie LaForce lip curl in last year’s tournament but it’s currently dominating the opening round.

Michigan State Big 10 tournament

Michigan State capped off a Big 10 Championship with a dominating performance against the 8th ranked Wolverines of Michigan.  The game was so out of hand that Tom Izzo felt confident enough to send in his white guys.

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis shared with his Instagram followers the joy of being hit by a major league pitcher.

Kipnis received a giant welt on his back after being hit by a pitch thrown by Jeremy Guthrie.

It seems that former Atlanta Braves closer John Rocker was looking for some entertainment yesterday when he posed a ridiculous question on Twitter yesterday that was sure to generate a response from his audience.

Here is his first angry Twitter exchange.

John Rocker Twitter fighting

Now, my first reaction is that this must be a parody account because I noticed that Rocker was not verified by Twitter.

Rocker explains why.

John Rocker not verified on Twitter

Then, I noticed that Rocker’s website was JohnRocker.net. Still seems suspicious

John Rocker doesn't own .com.

Well that clears up that.

Then things got fun as people were finding creative ways to make Rocker insult them.

A few members of the Seattle Seahawks are currently in Brazil working with an organization called American Football Without Barriers.  Their mission is “to spread football to underprivileged communities with a humanitarian message helping globalize the sport of American Football.”

I don’t know what humanitarian message gets delivered with a Marshawn Lynch stiff arm but it sure is fun to watch.

pharrell all-star game

If this is what “cool” looks like, I’m alright being average.

Pharrell sported this big dumb hat during the pre game show of the 2014 NBA All-Star game. He started rocking this style of hat at the Grammys earlier this year.

It was dumb then, it’s still dumb now.

By the way, it seems that 2014 Busta Rhymes ate 1997 Busta Rhymes.

I think I can honestly say that I’ve never watched more than 4 minutes of the Rising Star Challenge. No interest. Oh, you’re putting together a group of rookies and second-year players that aren’t good enough to play in the all-start game? Cool, let me find something else to watch.

Anyway, Andre Drummond was named MVP of the 2014 Rising Stars Challenge after a 30 point, 25 rebound performance.

As the little guy was presenting the trophy, the crystal star toppled to the court but surprisingly didn’t break.

I guess we learned that the trophy is not expensive but rather a sturdy piece of plastic.

Marcus Smart shoved this Texas Tech fan after Smart fell into the stands during a block attempt late in the Cowboys 65-61 upset loss to the Red Raiders.

Surprisingly, officials assessed a technical foul but did not eject him.

More from ESPN.com

Smart then walked away, pointing back in the fan’s direction.

The fan who Smart shoved is Jeff Orr, an air traffic controller in Waco, Texas, who travels thousands of miles each year to attend Texas Tech basketball games, according to athletic department spokesman Blayne Beal.

Smart has claimed to Oklahoma State coaches that Orr called him a racial slur, a member of the basketball program confirmed to ESPN.

After the game, Smart was “down and remorseful,” the team official told ESPN, claiming that the sophomore guard “got caught up in the moment.”

Beal told ESPN that high-ranking officials at Texas Tech already have spoken with Orr. Beal said he is uncertain whether the school will issue a statement about the incident.

“We have never had an issue with [Orr] crossing the line in the past,” Beal told ESPN.

Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford declined to discuss the incident in his postgame news conference.

“I didn’t see it yet. I want to make sure I see it and see what happened,” Ford said. “I’m still trying to figure it out.”

It’s gonna be hard to figure out if the N-word was used or Smart is using that as an excuse for his actions. The only way will be if a witness or one of the two parties involved come clean

One thing for sure, it’s embarrassing that Smart couldn’t even knock this old guy down.

Justin Bieber hockey chains

Some people may watch this video of Justin Bieber and think, “at least he likes hockey.”
I watch this video and say, “I can’t believe he found a way to still be douchey while playing hockey.”

Justin Bieber joined a youth hockey practice in Atlanta at the Marietta Ice Center in east Cobb County (yes, the home of the Big Bossman).

Anyone else hoping that one of those chains would pop up and chip a tooth?

Sidenote: Is he wearing MC Hammer pants too? Fucking Biebs.

The Seattle Seahawks celebrated their Super Bowl 48 victory with the traditional parade through the city on Wednesday.  Running back Marshawn Lynch spent most of the parade sitting on the front of a Duck Boat tossing out Skittles to the crowd.

Along the parade route, Lynch noticed that someone in the crowd had a full bottle of Fireball, the newly popular Cinnamon Whiskey.  As you can see in the video, Lynch went crazy trying to get the bottle for himself.

What makes the video so weird is that Lynch wouldn’t speak and just ask for the bottle.  He just kept pointing over and over again while his eyes got wider and wider trying to get the crowd to understand that he wanted the Fireball bottle.

Hey Beast Mode, all you had to do was ask.

Here is a high quality, really cool video that recapped the Marshawn Lynch at the Seahawks parade.

Curt Schilling Phillies

Former MLB pitcher and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling announced on Wednesday that he has been diagnosed with cancer.

“I’ve always believed life is about embracing the gifts and rising up to meet the challenges,” Schilling said in a statement released by ESPN. “We’ve been presented with another challenge, as I’ve recently been diagnosed with cancer.”

Schilling has had a tough couple of years. He suffered a minor heart attack in 2011 and went through a very public and disastrous stint as the owner of a video game company, 38 Studios, that defaulted on over $75 million in tax-payer loans from the state of Rhode Island.

Schilling pitched for 20 years in the MLB and most famously fought through an injured ankle that produced the legendary “bloody sock” in the Boston Red Sox‘s improbably run to the 2004 World Series championship.  Schilling has the 3rd best playoff winning percentage and 8th most playoff strikeouts of all-time.

Jared Lorenzen

Before Eli Manning won a Super Bowl and cemented himself as the franchise quarterback for the New York Giants, he had a chubby backup named Jared Lorenzen, who was a New York fan favorite.

Lorenzen was out of the league by 2008 and has bounced around in different arena football leagues since. This video of Lorenzo playing for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters hit the internet early Tuesday morning and it is amazing.

Gotta respect the fact that the 300+ pound QB can still move around.
