During Sunday’s pre-Christmas Eve matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints, Fox NFL analysts Tony Siragusa and Daryl “Moose” Johnston decided to wear ugly Christmas sweaters. We want to know who were the ugliest? I’m pick Johnston just because he wore a tight sweater as a reason to showoff those pecs.
Olympic Hurdler Lolo Jones recently made the cut and became one of the 24 women selected to the U.S. bobsled team. This now gives her the chance to compete for a spot on the World Cup circuit this winter and potentially represent her country at the 2014 Sochi Games.
More importantly, we want to know which version of Lolo Jones do you find to be hotter. The Hurdler, with cut abs and skimpy outfit or The Bobsleder with a skin-tight suit, helmet and less sweat.

Philly.com writer Dan Gross’ article about Philadelphia Phillies slugger Ryan Howard fiancee Krystle Campbell’s upcoming appearance on TLC’sSay Yes To The Dress has sparked some conversation in the Ride The Pine headquarters for something that was briefly mentioned. The article makes reference to the couple’s wedding registry at Macy’s, where the requests range from Swarovski crystal toasting flutes to 13-inch washcloths.
Is it appropriate for professional athletes to have a wedding registry? Especially really successful ones. Ryan Howard is scheduled to make $20 million this year and around $115 million over the next five years.
It looks bad that a multi-millionaire is asking for $10 wash clothes from his guests. I know that sometimes celebrities will either decline gifts or ask that donations are made to the couples’ favorite charity. Although I also understand how Campbell, a teacher and former Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader, has probably always dreamed about putting together a wedding registry and most likely reality has yet to sink in that money is no longer an issue for her once that marriage certificate is signed.
I don’t know if there’s a reasonable explanation why the umpiring has been terrible during the first half of the 2012 MLB season but one thing is for certain – it stinks!
We want you to help us decide, what has been the worst umpire call of the 2012 season thus far?
Dewayne Wise’s (non)Catch
This one is definitely the freshest in our minds and every time I watch the video and see the clear angle that umpire Mike DiMuro had on the non(catch) that New York Yankee outfielder Dewayne Wise pretended to make, I don’t understand how he missed it. (This is my vote)
Tim Welke’s Giant Area Call
I understand that umpire Tim Welke was in a bad position to see Todd Helton’s foot in relation to the bag but a good rule of thumb would be to assume that a player is away from the base when you can almost shake their hand.
The Strikeout featuring/No Strikes
5 pitches. 1 of them MAY be a strike. Hey, its the bottom of the 9th and an Irish Boston Bar is waiting…
Your turn to decide. Pick the worst umpire call of the year below and leave us a comment telling us why.
I’m starting to think it’s me. Maybe I’m emotionally detached from my mother? Maybe I’m the crazy one but its bizarre to watch the new generation of NBA stars kiss their mothers ON THE LIPS during games.
Now watching this morning’s SportsCenter they showed OKC Thunder’s Kevin Durant kissing his mom ON THE LIPS after victories as she sits court side (I wonder if those are the two seats he offered to Lil Wayne?).
I don’t kiss my mother on the lips, its all cheek. Vote below and help me understand.
The style of the NBA players in the post game press conference has been as talked about as the actually play on the court in the 2012 Playoffs and with all of the crazy shirts and jackets the common denominator has been the big black-rimmed glasses (with or without lens).
We ask all of you, who looks the dumbest?
Lebron James after Game 6 against the Boston Celtics
Dwyane Wade After Game 5 against the Boston Celtics
Russell Westbrook Rocking the Red-Rimmed Glasses
Remember, they all look really dumb but vote on who looks the dumbest! I removed Kevin Durant from this list because he at least as a prescription.
