Watch as Misa Malone of the musical Beach Blanket Babylon fails while singing 'God Bless America' tonight before Game 6 of the NLCS between the Cardinals and Giants. While it's true that no one is perfect and people make mistakes, I have to ask what the heck is going on with that hat she's wearing?!? It's one thing to mess up a lyric or two of a patriotic song at a sporting event in front of millions of viewers, but if you're going to wear the entire city of San Francisco on top of your head, you better at least nail the song. Then again, I was more distracted by what was on her head than by the part of the song that got screwed up!no comments
If there is one person on the planet who could topple Matt Millen in this week's Pammies nominees, it is the one and only "sex idiot" himself, Ryan Lochte. Lochte's legendary GameDay appearance looked more like Seth MacFarlane's impersonation of Lochte, but the end result is still the same - plenty of laughs for all of us. Can the celeb picker pick up 10 Pammies points and move to the top of our Celebrity Division? Check the nominees and the poll after the jump...no comments
Just about everything that could go wrong did go wrong for Jim Nantz at the end of Sunday's Jets-Patriots game. As the referee was reviewing the game's final play to seal a Patriots victory after a Mark Sanchez fumble, Nantz called the result a "stunning" victory... which is a bizarre thing to say seeing as how the Patriots were the ones favored at home. Things then made a bit more (or less) sense when after official confirmation, Nantz triumphantly proclaimed the New York Jets standing alone at the top of the AFC East.
The National Football League's Washington team nickname is a derogatory term. As you know, it's the "Redskins." I'm not going to waste your time pontificating my thoughts on the matter, as you can simply google the term to find a wealth of information if you so choose. But let's face it, the term "Redskins" isn't exactly the the most politically correct team nickname in pro sports.no comments
Fresh off his appearance as "Sex Idiot" on 30 Rock, Ryan Lochte had the honor of being College Gameday's celebrity picker.
Lochte, to the surprise of many including the Gameday guys, bucked his interview history and actually strung together a variety words to form coherent sentences and actually sounded knowledgeable in his picks.
But every minute of Lochte talking on live television is like a game of Jenga. The longer it goes without incident, the more you are pushing your luck. Unfortunately for Lochte, his answer for picking a winner for LSU vs. Texas A&M wielded a very odd answer.
I love how Chris Fowler dives in there like a high school algebra tutor trying to guide Lochte to the right answer in his notes. The SEC again continues the tradition started by Forrest Gump of churning out fast famous athletes who can be awkward socially.
In the end, Lochte appeared on two popular television programs this week and it seems that his 15 minutes of fame will never end. Oddly I'm okay with that.no comments

Stunning scenes from England during a game in the League Championship. After Leeds United scored a goal to tie their game at Sheffield Wednesday, a fan hopped out of the stands and gave a two handed shove to unsuspecting Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland. Insanity. The announcer's reacion says it all - dear, oh dear, oh dear. Thankfully Kirkland was able to finish the game and it ended 1-1, but this incident is sure to send shock waves around global soccer.no comments
The rising national debt crisis and wasteful spending has been one of the front and center issues in the 2012 presidential campaign. But when it comes to the most egregious examples of throwing money away, there's nothing that compares to ESPN's multi-million dollar contract with Rick Reilly. By the time his contract expires next year, ESPN will have spent a reported $17 million dollars over the last five years for Rick Reilly's various shenanigans.
The veteran sportswriter is in the news once again as Deadspin unveiled Reilly inserting a satirical story into a recent column as fact... for a second time!no comments
As if this week wasn't hard enough for Lance Armstrong, major American newspapers like the Los Angeles Times are now confusing him with space pioneers who recently passed away. Talk about a quick fall from grace. The only thing we're missing from Lance now is the tell-all book. If it was good enough for a habitual liar like Pete Rose, it's good enough for Lance Armstrong, who is making Barry Bonds look more and more like Gandhi with each passing day.
