Brett Favre’s Family Really Wants Him to get CTE

Brett Favre hasn’t played in the NFL for a long time. The last time Brett Favre took a snap in the NFL Blockbuster Video still existed. The last time Brett Favre took an NFL snap was before George R.R. Martin published the latest A Song of Ice and Fire novel. The last time Brett Favre took a snap in the NFL, Flint had drinkable tap water. You get the point.

You know what else happened the last time Brett Favre took a snap in the NFL? He got hit so hard by a Chicago Bears defensive player that he asked “why are the Bears here?” That really happened, it wasn’t just a Snickers commercial.

So you would think his family family would want him to stay away from the football field. You know, unless he had done something to humiliate them and himself immediately after he retired. But Favre told TMZ his family told him he should get back on the field.

Favre is almost 50 and hasn’t played in the league in almost 10 years, so his return to the gridiron was never going to happen. If only there was a young quarterback out there who was in playing shape, maybe someone who had taken his team to the playoffs before the franchise imploded through no fault of his own? But where would we find someone like that? Better call the dick-flashing grandpa.

Mikayla Demaiter is the World’s Sexiest Hockey Player

One phrase you don’t hear a lot is “sexy hockey player.” Maybe Manson Rheaume.

Hard to tell with all those pads.

Former goalie Mikayla Demaiter never played in the NHL, but she might have melted the ice if she did.

I’m happy to report that since leaving hockey, Demaiter has turned her attention entirely to being a thot on Instagram

NFL Superstar Antonio Brown Accused of Rape Less Than 24 Hours After Signing With the Patriots

There’s a conspiracy theory/rumor circulating on the internet that Antonio Brown engineered his release from the Oakland Raiders earlier this week because he had already reached an agreement to play for the Patriots, mainly because New England adjusted Tom Brady’s contract to free up salary cap space a month ago.

It’s unsurprising that the Patriots would want to sign Brown, who is not only the best wide receiver in the NFL today, he’s one of the best of all time, a player of the caliber of Jerry Rice and Lynn Swan.

Also unsurprising for a New England player, he’s been accused of multiple sexual assaults. He’s going to fit right into the den of cheaters he’s signed with. I think that if New England had known about these allegations earlier they would have drafted him as a rookie.

But what exactly did Antonio Brown allegedly do? Well, ESPN reports that his former trainer accused him of three separate incidents of sexual assault. In the first, he pulled his dick out and kissed her. The second incident involved him jacking off behind her without her knowing and finishing on her back. And in the third, most serious incident, she claims he held her down and raped her.

Brown tells a different story, through his lawyer.

Brown’s lawyer, Darren Heitner, said in a statement Tuesday night that the receiver and Taylor were involved in a “consensual personal relationship. Any sexual interaction with Mr. Brown was entirely consensual.”

In a tweet on Tuesday, Heitner said that Brown “will leave no stone unturned and will aggressively defend himself, including all of his rights in countersuits.”

CBS’s Gary Parrish tweeted that Brown’s accuser saved text messages he allegedly sent her talking about the second incident (though it looks like an e-mail to me).

That isn’t particularly counter to Browns defense of a consensual relationship, though. “I jack my dick on your back” doesn’t necessarily mean she was opposed to it. It’s a pretty weird thing to do consensually, though. Has anyone reading this ever been with a woman who said “I don’t feel like having sex, how about you just jack off on my back”? I feel like that has probably never happened.

The Patriots issued a brief statement basically saying rape is bad but not bad enough to get you cut by the Patriots.

The league is taking this very seriously, Brown could get as much as a two-game suspension. But to be fair, it’s not like he did something really bad, like kneel during the national anthem to protest police brutality against black men. He’d be out of the league already if he did that.

Days After Winning It, Chris Jericho Lost His AEW Championship Belt… In a Steakhouse

Lionheart Chris Jericho. One of my favorite pro wrestlers since he was a cruiserweight in the WCW. He’s just a really talented, entertaining guy who is very good at both the talking part and the athletic part of pro wrestling. He’s also the brand-new AEW champion, and he will defend that title by putting his body on the line.

You know, unless he’s had a few at a steak house, then you can just literally take it out of his car in the parking lot.

Wrestling journalist David Bixenspan confirmed that a police report stating the title belt was stolen was, in fact, real.

That’s a real punch in the dick.

Now the rumors floating around are that the champ was having a bit of… shall we say “celebratory bubbles,” a thing he’s had issues with in the past.

I know, I know, a professional wrestler with a substance abuse problem is a shocking development, almost unheard of.

It’s also kind of funny that after winning the championship he was celebrating at a chain steak house, but you know what? Good for him. Why shouldn’t he? You’re too good for the Longhorn Steakhouse?

He does kind of look… rough, though.

I mean, if he doesn’t get his championship belt back, he can start a new career on the celebrity impersonator circuit as Fat Kid Rock. I don’t see him competing for the Cruiserweight title again anytime soon, though.

Tyler Skaggs: Baseball Player’s Cause of Death Revealed; Family Blames Team

Back in July, baseball fans were stunned by the death of Tyler Skaggs, a 27-year-old pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels.

Now, medical examiners in Los Angeles county have released the results of toxicology testing that points to the cause of Skaggs' death.

Tyler Skaggs

According to the official coroner's report, Skaggs passed away due to a combination "alcohol, fentanyl and oxycodone intoxication with terminal aspiration of gastric contents."

It appears that after a night in which he ingested several intoxicating substances, Skaggs choked on his own vomit while unconscious.

Now, in a shocking turn of events, the Skaggs family has revealed that they intend to take legal action, as they believe an employee of the Angels is directly responsible for Tyler's passing:

"We are heartbroken to learn that the passing of our beloved Tyler was the result of a combination of dangerous drugs and alcohol," the statement said. 

"That is completely out of character for someone who worked so hard to become a Major League baseball player and had a very promising future in the game he loved so much," it continued.

skaggs

"We are grateful for the work of the detectives in the Southlake Police Department and their ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding Tyler's death. We were shocked to learn that it may involve an employee of the Los Angeles Angels," the grieving family added.

"We will not rest until we learn the truth about how Tyler came into possession of these narcotics, including who supplied them. To that end, we have hired attorney Rusty Hardin to assist us."

This is the first time the family has publicly suggested the possibility of taking action against the Angels. 

In his own statement, attorney Hardin stated that it's "way too early" to speculate on any potential legal action by Skaggs' loved ones.

"I think the thing to keep in mind is they're just still so devastated, both the wife and the family, about this young man's death, and they just want to know what happened and how it happened," Hardin told the Los Angeles Times.

"We're going to want to know how it came about that those drugs were ingested and whether or not others are responsible for what happened."

The Angels have yet to publicly respond to the allegations and have issued no official statement on Skagg's passing since their initial press release:

"It is with great sorrow that we report Tyler Skaggs passed away earlier today in Texas," the team said at the time.

"Tyler has, and always will be, an important part of the Angels family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Carli and his entire family during this devastating time."

We'll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Ryan Russell is Poised to be the NFL’s First Openly LGBT Player

If you had asked me who the first openly LGBT NFL player would be and what position they would play, my money would have been on lesbian place kicker. Seriously, if you don’t think Megan Rapinoe could split the uprights from 45 yards out, you’re crazy.

But as it turns out, the first openly LGBT NFL player looks like it will probably be Ryan Russell, a gigantic defensive end, who announced to the world that he is bisexual and in a relationship with a man in an article he penned for ESPN.

It’s not a quick read, but it’s deeply personal and well worth reading in its entirety, but I’ll try to hit the high points here.

UNTIL RECENTLY, I didn’t love myself enough to live openly and honestly. I was ashamed of who I am. I prayed countless nights for God to take away this part of me. I was ashamed to love women because I knew I could also love men. I stayed up so many nights in fear of being found out, in fear that the professional sports world would reject me for the way I was born.

Russell is bisexual, and even though he missed last season due to injury, he’s looking to come back to the league this year. Which will be somewhat groundbreaking.

But judging from the fact that there isn’t a single openly LGBTQ player in the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball or the NHL, brings me pause. I want to change that — for me, for other athletes who share these common goals, and for the generations of LGBTQ athletes who will come next.

It’s almost surprising there isn’t a single out LGBT pro athlete in any major American sports league. Clearly there are probably a number who are in the closet, as Russell was. And Russell started seven games for Tampa Bay, so there are clearly LGBT athletes capable of performing at the level of an NFL pro. I mean, remember Tim Tebow? The bar is pretty low.

Nevertheless, I know now truth is survival, and that we cannot survive in this world without vulnerability and love. Also, the best version of myself, the best partner, the best friend, the best teammate, is one that’s open and honest. Next, it will be a signed player, then a Pro Bowler, then a Super Bowl champion who embraces who he is publicly.

Personally, I’m rooting for him. Not just because bisexuality is clearly the best sexuality, which you know because David Bowie was bi and he was the best, but he just seems genuine, determined… we need more guys like Ryan Russell in the NFL, and fewer murderers and dudes who beat up their partners in elevators or kiss their kids on the lips. I know that last one isn’t really the same but it’s still just fucking weird, okay?

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Survives Plane Crash: See the Intense Footage!

In a word? Wow.

In two more words? Thank. Goodness.

On Thursday afternoon, Dale Earnhardt Jr, -- the beloved NASCAR driver and auto racing analyst -- and his wife were involved in a private jet crash in east Tennessee, thankfully managing to escape serious injury.

According to Elizabethton Fire Chief Barry Carrier, via CNN affiliate WJHL, Earnhardt and his wife, Amy, were on a small jet that crashed at Elizabethton Municipal Airport around 3:38 p.m. EST.

In the footage posted featured on this page, you can see the plane go up in a whirl of smoke shortly after landing.

Multiple outlets have confirmed that  the vehicle skidded off the runway immediately upon touching down.

An investigation is currently underway and the National Transportation Safety Board is expected to determine a cause of the crash, but we can at least report that the popular athlete is doing just fine.

"Everyone is safe and has been taken to the hospital for further evaluation," Tweeted Dale's sister, Kelly, shortly after news of accident went viral.

She added: "We have no further information at this time. Thank you for your understanding,"

The Federal Aviation Administration has confirmed that two pilots and three passengers were aboard the aircraft.

(UPDATE: We can now report that the couple's one-year old daughter, Isla, was also on the plane. She was the third passenger.)

The fire that resulted from the crash burned for about 20 minutes before authorities arrived on the scene and put it out.

In 2017, the 44-year old Earnhardt was voted as NASCAR's most popular driver for the 15th straight year. Yes, 15th straight year. Fans adore this guy.

The son of the late racing icon Dale Earnhardt, he now works as a NASCAR analyst for NBC.

Said A network spokesperson:

"We are aware of the media reports and have been in contact with Dale's team. We'll have no further comment until we have more details."

As of this writing, Dale, his daughter and his wife have been discharged from the hospital and are expected to make a full recovery.

Dale Earnhardt Sr., for whatever it is worth died at age 49 of injuries sustained in a race car crash during the 2001 Daytona 500.

Watch the video here and join us in sending Earnhardt Jr. and his family members all our best.

Mike Tyson Smokes Half a Million Dollars of Weed a Year

If I asked you who smoked the most weed, you’d probably say Snoop Dogg, right? That’s his whole image, the guy who loves weed. But maybe he doesn’t love weed as much as Mike Tyson, who says he smokes upwards of half a million dollars of weed a year.

Via CNN:

“What do we smoke a month?” he asked his co-host, former NFL player turned marijuana advocate Eben Britton. “Is it $40,000 a month?”

“We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month,” Britton said, referencing Tyson Ranch, the boxer’s forthcoming 40-acre marijuana farm and “resort.”

I want to go to there.

I don’t know how a pot farm resort works, 8 mentioned it involved “glamping” which is like camping but you get to bring the things your dad yelled at you for bringing camping when you were a kid but how the hell are you supposed to spend a whole weekend in the woods without a Gameboy like some kind of animal? At least this way there’s 10 tons of pot to pass the time with.

Michelle Wie Shows Off Her Ass

We all know how hot Michelle Wie is, hell, we put all all of Michelle Wie’s hottest pics in one place for you.

Wie knows it too, I guess? She shared a pic of herself on Instagram, ass to the camera, walking off somewhere.

She captioned her Instagram:

AUTOMATIC REPLY: Currently out of the office. Will get back to you on Monday, I’m on my way to get some more Rosé with my girls @kirakazantsev @jeehaeda💁🏻‍♀️

She seems to be in a much better mood than a month ago when she tearfully said she may retire because of her arthritic wrists.

At the Women’s P.G.A. Championship, she mourned after shooting an 84:

“I’m not entirely sure how much more I have left in me,” the 29-year-old Wie said, choking back tears. “So even on the bad days, I’m just like trying to take time to enjoy it. But it’s tough, I just love being out here.”

Wie continued, through her tears, “luckily, I have dis ass right here.”

Ex-UFC Fighter Abel Trujillo Sent Dick Pics and Masturbation Videos to a 16-Year-Old

UFC has had a couple of notable fuck-ups who have graced their octagon. The biggest being Joe Son who’s serving life for raping a woman with a gun in 1990. A close runner up is War Machine who legally changed his name to War Machine and is serving an aggregate life sentence with a possibility of parole after 36 years. This for savagely beating his then girlfriend Christy Mack.

Abel Trujillo, who was also once a UFC fighter, is attempting to throw his hat in the ring. But, he’s taking a different route to claim the throne. The 35-year-old MMA fighter is alleged to have befriended a 16-year-old on Instagram and began harassing her asking her to send nudes. Seven months after telling him to stop and blocking him, Trujillo started sending her dick pics and videos of him masturbating.

Police found a low quality photo via email but couldn’t make out any details. The victim began cooperating with police and sent Trujillo messages reminding her she was under 18. Trujillo said he didn’t know and stopped responding. Days later on Snapchat, he sent her more dick pics.

Police served Trujillo a search warrant and found multiple conversations with minors. Trujillo admitted he knew they were under 18. Police later found dozens of photos of “nude young women” on his iPhone.

Suffice it to say, this is not a good look for Abel Trujillo. He’s probably going to soon find out the rear naked means something completely different in prison.

I Think I’ll Pass

San Francisco’s Dolores Street became the epicenter of CTE when skateboarders gathered to bomb the hill. Not many wore helmets because the feeling of your head hitting pavement is something these people live for, apparently. And getting road rash after wiping out? A very painful badge of honor.

At least some people made it down in one piece. Although there was one person on rollerblades who didn’t get the memo that it’s not the 90’s anymore. He was mercilessly beaten afterward. Probably.

You know what? The soundtrack to that video was way to chill so here’s one with Korn.

Pernell Whitaker, Boxing Legend, Dead at 55

Pernell Whitaker, a legendary boxer who was referred to by the nickname "Sweet Pea," died on Sunday after being hit by a car in Virginia.

He was 55 years old.

Pernell Whitaker

The Virginia Beach Police Department said in a press release early on Monday that Whitaker was crossing the intersection of Northampton Boulevard and Baker Road at approximately 10 p.m. last nightwhen a vehicle struck and killed him.

The famous athlete succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the accident.

"This remains an active investigation, no further information is available at this time," reads an update to the press release.

Whitaker was among the great boxers of his era, winning world titles at four different weight classes: lightweight, light welterweight, welterweight and light middleweight.

Pernell had just posed for a photo on Saturday with Floyd Mayweather, as the boxers both attended an autograph show in Virginia.

"R I P champ, one of the best fighters to ever do it," wrote Mayweather shortly after Whitaker was killed.

with floyd

Whitaker started his professional career 1984 and continued to box through 2001, compiling a record of 40-4-1 record with 17 knockouts.

He also won a gold medal at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles and was named Fighter of the Year by Ring Magazine in 1989.

Between the years of 1993 to 1997, most knowledgable fans considered Whitaker to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

As for what transpired on Sunday evening?

Officials have told NBC News that police do not believe speed or alcohol played a role in the fatal collision, although investigators still must confer with prosecutors.

The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene to be interviewed by authorities during their investigation.

The Norfolk, Virginia, native was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2006.

In response to his shocking death, athletes from across various fields have reacted in stunned sadness on social media.

"Pernell 'Sweet Pea' Whitaker was in the class of Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard as one of the most entertaining fighters in my lifetime. I’m praying for his family," wrote Magic Johnson, for example.Ad

Added ex-NFL star Michael Vick, who's also from Virginia:

"'Sweet Pea' Whitaker was our hometown legend and the greatest of all time. My prayers are with his family and loved ones."

sweet pea

Reached Monday morning by phone, Pernell's youngest son, Devon Whitaker, could only offer so much after learning what had happened.

"I guess he was wearing dark clothes, the road was dark and the driver didn't see him," said the 23-year-old, adding that his dad was "cool" and concluding:

"That's all I can say about him. I can't really say how I'm feeling because I'm feeling shocked. I'm still trying to process everything that's going on. But he was a cool guy."

Whitaker is survived by four children: Tiara, Dominique, Dantavious and Devon.

He was predeceased by his son Pernell Jr., who died in 2015 after a battle with cancer.

May he rest in peace.

US Women’s Soccer Hero Megan Rapinoe’s Entire Boob Fell Out at the ESPYs

I feel good and bad for the US Women’s Soccer team right now. They’ve been dominating the sport for a while now, which has made them pretty popular in the US, way more popular than the Men’s team, who are terrible. But the reason they’ve been so successful is that none of the countries that care about soccer have really built women’s programs, and they’re starting to. Once places like Brazil and England and Spain have real women’s soccer teams, it’s game over for US dominance and the popularity of the sport in the US.

But the women are champions and they should get to enjoy that. Team Captain Megan Rapinoe has been taking a well-deserved victory lap and enjoying the spotlight as of late. She courted some controversy by saying “New York City, you’re the motherfucking best!” at the parade for the victorious women which was broadcast on television, but she topped that at the ESPYs when she just let her entire breast fall out of her top.

Completely unphased, what a champ.

Rapinoe has no hang-ups with showing off her incredibly sculpted body to begin with, though. She was even in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

She and her partner Sue Bird also appeared nude on the cover of ESPN The Magazine.

Tyler Skaggs, Los Angeles Angels Pitcher, Found Dead in Hotel Room

Shocking and sorrowful news out of the Major League Baseball universe today:

Tyler Skaggs, a starting pitcher for the Los Angele Angels, was found dead in his hotel room on Monday afternoon, hours before his team was scheduled to take on the Texas Rangers.

He was 27 years old.

Tyler Skaggs

No cause of death has been announced and authorities will soon conduct a thorough investigation, but sources confirm that no foul play is suspected in the tragic death.

“The Southlake Police Department responded to a call of an unconscious male in a room in the Hilton Hotel,” authorities confirmed in a statement this evening, adding:

“Officers arrived and found the male unresponsive and he was pronounced deceased at the scene.”

The game between the two teams was postponed for a later date.

And the Angels released a statement of their own that reads as follows:

It is with great sorrow that we report Tyler Skaggs passed away earlier today in Texas.

Tyler has, and always will be, an important part of the Angels family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Carli and his entire family during this devastating time.

Tyler Skaggs Picture

On Sunday, Skaggs shared a picture to his Instagram page featuring his Angels teammates, who were all dressed in cowboy attire, outside of an airport before their scheduled game against the Rangers.

"Howdy y’all #TexasRoadtrip," he wrote as a caption to the snapshot.

He had just taken to the mound to pitch on Saturday against the Oakland A's, giving up two runs in 4.1 innings.

Overall on the season, Skaggs has seven wins and seven losses and had compiled a 4.29 ERA.

For his career, Skaggs won 28 games in just over six years.

Tyler Skaggs Photo

Skaggs was drafted by the Angels in the first round of the 2009 MLB Draft.

He made his professional debut in 2012 for the Arizona Diamondbacks, where he played until 2013, prior to returning to the Angels ... where he's played ever since (he missed the 2015 season due to surgery).

After this awful news went public, numerous athletes and fellow players reacted with shock on social media.

Wrote Bryce Harper:

"By far the nastiest prep arm I ever faced. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tyler's family! Gone too soon!"

And Treavor Bauer:

"We came up together. We won together. We laughed and celebrated together. Today, we all lose and mourn together. Your memory, your love for life, everything that made you, you, will live forever in the hearts and minds of those who knew you. Rest In Peace brother. We love you."

And Ender Inciarte:

"Terrible news. Unbelievable person and teammate. So sad to hear something like this. RIP brother."

Added the Rangers as an organization:

"The Texas Rangers organization wants to express its deepest sympathies to the family of Tyler Skaggs and to the entire Angels organization on this shocking loss.

"The thoughts and prayers of every member of the Texas Rangers and all of their fans are with the Angels organization at this difficult time."

Skaggs is survived by his wife, Carli Skaggs, and parents Debbie and Darrell Skaggs.

May he rest in peace.

The MMA Fight Between Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise Could Actually Happen

Last week, Justin Bieber tweeted that he wanted to fight Tom Cruise in the Octagon. Here was this 25-year-old challenging a guy older than his dad to an MMA fight. Though the consensus was Bieber would probably get his ass kicked by Tom Cruise. Never discount old man strength.

Well, TMZ got some details saying that calls were made. Ari Emanuel, co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor agency, owner of the UFC, called Scooter Braun, Bieber’s manager. Dana White, president of the UFC, was conferenced in. All were in agreement that this 100% needs to happen. Justin Bieber said he would for sure fight if Cruise agreed. Only one question remains. Will Tom Cruise be willing to punch Bieber in the face for all of us?

Anyway, Dana White must have got a raging boner after the phone call because this is the easiest event he’d ever have to promote. And I’m guessing when Conor McGregor read the news, he wiped his nose and told his people to find the oldest actor they can find so he could punch them in the face.
