Ty Lawson put on blast by baby mama Ashley Pettiford over Instagram picture

Ashley Pettiford

Don’t you just love it when an athlete gets all person and shares a picture on Instagram of them spending time with their family? It shows us there’s more to them than just playing sports, and most importantly, it shows us that they’re a #familyman.

But sometimes an attempt to show everyone what a #familyman they are backfires, like it did with Ty Lawson.

The Denver Nuggets point guard shared a picture on Instagram Saturday of his baby daughter on a bed playing with a basketball. #adorable #cute #basketballintheblood #likefatherlikedaughter

Only one problem: the mother of the baby, Ashley Pettiford (pictured), put Lawson on blast for not being involved in the girl’s life. Take a look at the comment she left on his picture as pointed out by MediaTakeOut:

Ooooh burn!

Lawson and Pettiford were both arrested last year in a domestic violence case. Ty was accused of pushing Pettiford while she was six months pregnant with their baby. They later supposedly said it was a misunderstanding and that they were working things out. That obviously didn’t go too well.

We have no idea who’s the good parent and who’s the bad one and whether or not Lawson is even a flake … but this was too funny not to post. FYI it looks like Ty deleted her comment — shocker.

Damien Sandow dresses as LeBron James for WWE RAW in Miami (Video)

Damien Sandow was at it again on Monday messing with the hometown fans about one of their basketball players.

Last month Sandow put on a Pacers jersey and blew in Big Show’s ear as a way of mocking what Lance Stephenson did to LeBron James in the playoffs. RAW happened to be in Indy that night, no surprise.

With RAW in Miami Monday, Sandow decided to play the heel role once again prior to his match with Bo Dallas.

Sandow dressed up in a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey, but he crossed the Miami out of the jersey and replaced it with Cleveland.

Notice the touch with the black headband, too? Sandow goes all out with his skits and of course loves to throw salt in the wounds of fans.

Jamal Crawford introduces Kobe Bryant as this generation’s Michael Jordan (Video)

Is Kobe Bryant this generation’s Michael Jordan? Jamal Crawford certainly thinks so.

Kobe Michael JordanKobe was in Seattle for the weekend for a few different events, including the Seattle Basketball Pro-Am. All proceeds from the Pro-Am go to the Jamal Crawford Foundation, where Jamal has been a fixture since he was a teenager. You could tell that Crawford was excited to have Kobe in attendance, because he was all jacked up and gave Kobe a nice introduction, calling him “this generation’s Michael Jordan.”

Though the comparison to Michael Jordan will probably rankle some people, and the merits of whether or not there is such a thing as another Michael Jordan are debatable, Kobe is probably the closest thing to a generation’s Michael Jordan.

Kobe is a 16-time All-Star, 5-time NBA champion, two-time Finals MVP and two-time scoring champion. Jordan won six titles, six Finals MVPs, five regular season MVPs, was a 10-time scoring champion and 14-time All-Star.

Few players can stack up with Michael Jordan, but Kobe is probably the closest to him from our generation.

And if Kobe’s weekend in Seattle is any indication, he might even be as good at baseball as MJ. Did you see the home run he hit at Richard Sherman’s celebrity softball game at Safeco Field?

Tom Brady and Gisele’s marriage in trouble?

Tom Brady Gisele

Is the marriage between Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen in trouble? That’s what one tabloid would like to have you believe.

In a story published Monday called “Gisele & Tom: A House Divided!”, Star alleges that Gisele is controlling of Tom’s home life and that he is getting fed up.

Quoting from the article:

According to insiders, Gisele, 34, is supercontrolling with Tom and has final say on everything from how their home is decorated to exactly how and where their children, Benjamin, 4, and Vivian, 19 months, are raised.

The story alleges that despite having tons of housekeepers, Gisele has a list of chores for her husband to complete such as waking up early to clean floors and toilets. They say Tom is getting sick of doing things Gisele’s way.

In the past, Tom, 36, went along with Gisele’s demands in order to keep the peace, but pals insist he’s finally starting to stand his ground. “She throws an insane tantrum when things don’t go her way,” says the source.

“One time, Tom didn’t do one of the chores on his list, and she berated him — even telling him that he’s a terrible role model for their children. But instead of doing what she wanted, he just took the kids and left the house. Gisele was shocked.”

The story also says that a “final straw” was Gisele deciding she didn’t want to live in the LA mansion they built, and instead preferred a quieter environment. You may recall that the couple began construction on the Brentwood mansion back in 2010 after purchasing the plot of land for over $11 million. The entire construction cost was estimated to be around $20 million and the project supposedly took about four years to complete. It’s unclear whether the family ever lived in the mansion, but they listed it this year and sold it to Dr. Dre. They’re now building a huge complex in Brookline, Mass. instead.

And how’s this for a kicker? Star concluded its story with a quote from a friend who says they wouldn’t be surprised if Tom decided he could no longer take the married life.

“She rules Tom’s life,” continues the friend. “Nobody would be surprised if he threw in the towel soon.”

Eh, I think everyone on the outside world would be surprised if that happened. But if they are having problems, nobody should be surprised. First off, all marriages have their problems. Secondly, few things are as perfect as they seem on the outside.

While I can picture Gisele as a controlling type, I just can’t imagine Tom scrubbing toilets around his house. No way that’s possible, right?

Brett Favre: I’m not worried about Packers fans booing

Packers-waiting-to-retire-Brett-Favre-jerseyBrett Favre knows there could be a mixed reaction from Green Bay Packers fans when he eventually returns to Lambeau Field, but he claims he is not concerned about it. Earlier this month, Packers president Mark Murphy said the team is not planning to retire Favre’s No. 4 jersey just yet because Favre “wouldn’t want to come back and get booed.” Favre said on Monday that Murphy does not speak for him.

“I’ve heard that was a concern of mine, and I’m here to tell you I’m not,” Favre told ESPN 1000 in Chicago. “I’m not worried about that. I’m well aware that you can’t please everyone. Not everyone’s going to like you regardless, and you know what, so be it. But I think the 16 years that I had in Green Bay speaks for itself.

“Yeah, you’re right, I have played with other teams, but I will be remembered as a Packer. I feel that. I think the true Packer backers, which there are tons out there, feel the same way. I’m not the first player to play for other teams or rivals.”

That almost sounded like Favre challenging the “true” Packers fans to cheer for him, and they probably will. It has been six years since Favre left Green Bay. That should be more than enough time to forgive and forget, especially for a player who was the epitome of toughness and won a Super Bowl championship.

“In spite of what people may think — and I really don’t pay attention to what people are saying — I just know the facts, and the facts are that I feel like the relationship is a good relationship,” Favre said. “I’ve had contact with Mark Murphy on a regular basis in regards to how we’re going to do this, the ceremony.”

Former NFL tight end Mark Chmura, who was teammates with Favre, also said recently that Favre was scheduled to appear at Lambeau Field last season but backed out because he was afraid of being booed. Apparently Chmura’s sources are misinformed, because the Ole Gunslinger sounds like he is well on his way to a return.

Katherine Webb and her bikini enjoyed their honeymoon

Katherine-Webb-bikini

Katherine Webb doesn’t post photos on Instagram all that often. We wish she would, and the photo she posted from her honeymoon on Sunday reminded us why.

Webb, who married Cincinnati Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron last weekend, felt the need to post a quick selfie to thank Sports Illustrated for her new leopard print bikini.

“Thank you @siswim! Loved wearing it on my honeymoon,” she wrote.

For some reason, it feels like we should be the ones saying thank you. Doesn’t it seem like those breakup rumors were years ago? The internet really knows how to toy with our emotions.

Zach Mettenberger allegedly sucker punched by Alabama fan

Zach Mettenberger LSUZach Mettenberger is no longer the starting quarterback at LSU, but that does not mean he is free from the psychotic nature with which some SEC fans worship their football teams. Over the weekend, Mettenberger was reportedly sucker punched by an Alabama fan at a bar in Nashville.

Steve Ford, the owner of Losers Most Wanted Bar & Grill, told Jim Wyatt of The Tennesseean that Mettenberger did nothing to antagonize the man who hit him.

“Here’s the truth: The guy said something about ‘Roll Tide!’ to Zach, and Zach turned around and said ‘Good luck with that,’” Ford explained. “And the guy’s buddy then sucker-punched Zach.

“I promise you that Mettenberger did not throw a punch. He didn’t do anything. The guy sucker-punched him in the eye, that’s the bottom line, and the guy that punched him started running out the door. My door guys had to chase him down.”

Mettenberger, who was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the sixth round, has supposedly visited Losers multiple times with first-round pick Taylor Lewan. Ford said they have never caused any trouble. Mettenberger also had to clear up what he called a “bogus rumor” that was started on a message board Sunday night about him injuring his hand in a bar fight.

While bar security was able to chase down the alleged sucker puncher, Mettenberger has chosen not to press charges.

“It is what it is and it’s over. No one is pressing charges,” Ford said. “It shouldn’t have happened to begin with. The guy said ‘Roll Tide.’ He tried to provoke him. But Zach did not throw one punch, period. I was standing right next to him.”

Mettenberger started 25 games between his junior and senior seasons at LSU, so he is plenty familiar with the rivalry between the Tigers and Crimson Tide. Still, you never expect someone to take it that far. If the incident happened like Ford said it did, I’m surprise Mettenberger is letting the guy off the hook.
