Ronda Rousey featured in ‘The Expendables 3′ teaser trailer (Video)

Over the summer, news surfaced that Ronda Rousey would be joining the star-studded cast of “The Expendables 3.” On Thursday, a teaser trailer was released that made it official.

Those of you who thought it might be too good to be true can now rest assured knowing that the bantamweight champion will indeed be starring alongside Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Mel Gibson, Randy Couture and a number of other actors and former fighters that take bad-assery to a new level. Given some of the stories we have heard about Rousey in the past, she should fit in just fine.

Kanye West at Chicago concert: We should have never let Michael Jordan play for the Wizards

Kanye WestIf nothing else, Kanye West is at least very aware of his surroundings.

Yeezy performed at the United Center in Chicago on Wednesday night, and during his show, he decided to rap about the most famous athlete to ever play inside the building. Kanye came up with a song he sung in autotune that seemed to be called, “We should have never let Michael Jordan play for the Wizards.”

There is some NSFW language — as you could imagine from Yeezy — but the song is pretty awesome.

“I believe I can fly and I wanted to be just like Mike,” Kanye says, which are lyrics most can agree with.

The only problem with Kanye’s song is that it might not exactly be rooted in facts. I mean who could tell Michael Jordan what he could or couldn’t do? The guy became a part owner of the Wizards and then decided to play for them. Nobody could tell 45 what he was or wasn’t going to do. Other than that, love the song, Yeezy.

Jeopardy takes shot at Barry Bonds with asterisk (Video)

Barry-Bonds-Jeopardy-questionThat damn “Jeopardy!” just thinks it’s so freakin’ funny sometimes, right? The nearly 50-year-old game show has taken its fair share of swipes at athletes and sports teams over the years, and the producers were at it again on Wednesday night. Barry Bonds was the latest victim.

One of the answers given on the show read “he fathered baseball * Barry Bonds.” The question, of course, was Bobby Bonds. Here is how Alex Trebek read the answer.

“He fathered baseball star Barry Bonds.”

Those of us who are familiar with baseball’s steroid era and Barry Bonds’ career know that an asterisk is hardly a star. Well played.

Last month, “Jeopardy!” took a shot at the Houston Astros and their horrendous 2013 season. Watch out, Johnny Manziel — you’re next.

Danica Patrick dressed as showgirl at American Country Awards

Danica-Patrick-showgirl

Danica Patrick was one of the hosts of the American Country Awards on Tuesday night, and she provided viewers with some entertaining moments. One of them came when Patrick took the stage dressed as a showgirl.

About halfway through the show, which has held at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Patrick performed on stage with a group of dancers. She then joked about her lack of assets.

“The thing about me, there’s not chance of a wardrobe malfunction. There’s not much to malfunction,” Patrick said to the delight of the crowd. “I hope that little bit didn’t fall flat.”

We like you just the way you are, Danica. Well, except when you and your boyfriend can’t take a joke. That gets kind of uncomfortable.

John Fox checked into hospital under alias ‘Johnny Drama’

John Fox Johnny Drama

Sounds like John Fox is a big “Entourage” fan.

When the Denver Broncos head coach checked into a North Carolina hospital last month for heart surgery, he used the alias “Johnny Drama,” The Denver Post confirmed.

“Johnny Drama” is the name of a popular character played by Kevin Dillon on HBO’s hit TV show “Entourage.”

The best part of this story might be that when Post reporter Ryan Parker tweeted the news, he received a response from Jerry Ferrara, the actor who plays “Turtle” in the series:

No word if Fox ordered his nurses to hand-pick raisins from Raisin Bran to add into his cereal. We do have hidden-camera footage of Fox’s reaction after being told his surgery was a success:

LeBron James to star in basketball comedy movie with Kevin Hart

LeBron JamesLeBron James is officially going Hollywood.

Deadline reports that James will star in a basketball comedy movie called “Ballers” along with actor/comedian Kevin Hart. Deadline says Hart will co-write the script and then a director will be picked out for the Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment project.

According to Deadline, the movie is about a brother (Hart) who lives in the shadow of his NBA superstar brother (James), but gets the chance to prove himself when he attends a basketball fantasy camp.

The plan is to begin filming next summer when James is in the middle of his offseason.

Ethan J. Skolnick reports that James’ involvement in the project is being spearheaded by Maverick Carter, James’ high school pal and longtime manager. Skolnick says the project is still in development and that no shooting dates have been set yet.

James can become a free agent next summer if he opts out of his contract with the Miami Heat.

If James stars in the movie, he’ll be making the same transition to film as many other NBA superstars. Michael Jordan starred in “Space Jam,” Shaq acted in “Kazaam,” Kevin Durant starred “Thunderstruck,” and Ray Allen was superb in “He Got Game.” Hopefully James’ performance will go down in the Allen category more than the Shaq one.

Ron Burgundy interviews Peyton Manning (Video)

Will Ferrell has been working overtime to promote “Anchorman 2.” He had the commercial with Dodge, and he’s been appearing around the country in character as “Anchorman” star Ron Burgundy. Ferrell even hosted a newscast in North Dakota as his alter-ego.

On Tuesday, he interviewed Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning as Burgundy before hosting SportsCenter in character. The results were predictably awesome. I almost lost it when he asked about Broncos mascot Thunder and said he had his eye on that beast for a while.

Here’s his hosting work on KXMB in Bismarck:
