During the Conference Finals it was Justin Bieber's leather shirt and chains that captivated... and terrified the nation. Tonight during Game 2 of the NBA Finals, CBS's Shannon Sharpe takes the award for loudest and most thought provoking outfit with this bright pink suit and purple bowtie. The obvious question is why don't we see this on The NFL Today?
At least we know if there's a power outage at some point during Game 3 the broadcast will be in good hands.

On Thursday, Deadspin rehashed the mostly non-sexual yet still bizarre relationship between Steve Phillips and Brooke Hundley that brought about massive changes (on the surface at least) at ESPN.
Phillips, a baseball analyst, and Hundley, a production assistant, had an odd, yet grossly inappropriate relationship that ended both their careers at the WWL.
They met during the 2009 All-Star game in St. Louis and shared a kiss in a hotel lobby. As John Koblin at Deadspin recaps:no comments

The Boston Bruins completed their sweep of the Pittsburgh Penguins Friday night to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. One of the lasting images of the series was Boston forward Gregory Campbell having his leg broken on a shot by Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin during Game 3 and finishing his shift.
It was a moment that embodied the toughness of hockey players.
A moment that inspired Boston Bruins announcer Jack Edwards to once again take a leap into an alternative dimension.no comments
September 14 is one of those dates that college football fans already have circled on their calendars. That’s the day when the defending national champions from Alabama travel to College Station, Texas, seeking revenge against Texas A&M for the Crimson Tide’s lone loss of 2012. Imagine the millions of eyeballs that will be glued to CBS that afternoon.
Looking over the rest of the schedule, the day’s second-best game is probably going down in the Lone Star State, too. Up-and-coming Ole Miss and treading-water Texas will tussle in Austin that evening. You probably won’t get to watch it.no comments
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel, Shaq participated in a shooting contest with two-year old sensation Titus Ashby and lost 8-0.
Ashby became a YouTube sensation recently and certainly lived up to all the hype, sinking six shots in a row as time wore down.
While I think we all expected the contest to be a bit closer between a 15-time all star, 4-time NBA champion and a toddler, Shaq did not seem to be bothered by the blow-out, giving Titus his shoe as a prize. Titus seemed unphased by Shaq's size and the audience. It was an impressive performance by the two-year old, and I have a feeling we'll be hearing a lot more about him in the years to come. He's a better shooter and less of a baby than Dwight Howard.

Manny Ramirez's stint in Taiwan with the EDA Rhinos has given us plenty of magical moments, from his 10-foot-shy slide to his distaste for home-plate collisions to his moonwalk out of the batter's box, but he's now even inspiring craziness from his team's announcers. In the clip below, Manny hits a perfectly normal home run and jogs around the bases, but that inspires the play-by-play announcer to switch from Mandarin into broken English and deliver one of the funniest home-run calls ever.
"This ball is long gone, just like the ex-girlfriend who will never return. Home run!" Well, that's an interesting analogy. It's the delivery of it that's the best, though. The random fan holding up a purple helmet with Manny's #99 and what are supposed to be dreadlocks is also pretty great, especially considering that the helmet seems to have a Dallas Cowboys star on it for some reason. It's nice to know that Manny being Manny can still produce bizarre moments from everyone else.no comments
