Kate Upton proud of her body, wants to keep her boobs

A few days after Kate Upton said that she wishes she had smaller boobs, the supermodel backed off and clarified that she loves her body.

Here are the comments Upton made to The Sun on Sunday:

“I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs,” Upton said.

“Every single day, I’m like, ‘Oh, man, it would be so much easier,’ especially if people didn’t constantly bring them up.”

Upton did allow that the grass is always greener, but her comments still made plenty of headlines from those who felt she was slapping god in the face for giving her a beautiful gift.

On Wednesday, Upton sent a few tweets blaming the media and clarifying that she is proud of her body and wouldn’t change a thing:

Well God bless her. And without her gift, we never would have had the Kate Upton Cat Daddy dance:

Kevin Edson: Marathon backpack drop was ‘symbolism’


A 25-year-old Massachusetts man was arrested on Tuesday evening after he placed a backpack containing a rice cooker at the spot of the Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street. Edson, who was barefoot and wearing a black veil and makeup, allegedly admitted to police that he had put the backpack there.

According to a police report that was obtained by the Boston Globe, Edson told police that he simply got preoccupied with his dramatic performance.

“I knew what I was doing, it was being conceived in my head,” he reportedly said at the time of his arrest. “It’s symbolism. The performance got the best of me.”

The backpack created a frightening scene for Bostonians on the one-year anniversary of the tragic bombings that took place at the 2013 Boston Marathon. Police were immediately notified of the suspicious backpack and the entire Boylston Street area was evacuated. The bomb squad later detonated the backpack as a precautionary measure and found a rice cooker filled with confetti inside.

Jared Lorenzen cracks hilarious joke about NCAA food rule


Thanks in part to UConn guard Shabazz Napier complaining that he goes to bed “starving” at night while college sports are bringing in millions of dollars, the NCAA’s legislative council approved a proposal on Tuesday that will expand the meal allowance for all athletes. Under the new rules, athletes will have access to unlimited meals and snacks through their schools.

Enter Jared Lorenzen, who is by far our favorite Continental Indoor Football League quarterback. The former Kentucky star scrambles around and completes passes at a cool 320 pounds. And as you might expect, he is jealous of the new food rule.

If the rule was in place while Lorenzen was still in school, he wouldn’t be a quarterback in any league right now. He’d be on one of those A&E specials called “My 750 Pound Life.” Limited meals was a blessing in disguise for Jared.

Twitter dummy hilariously mistakes LeBron James for Derrick Rose

LeBron James Twitter mistake

Look, we realize that not everyone follows sports the way we all do, but come on, who doesn’t know LeBron James at this point? I mean the guy is on TV all the time playing basketball or appearing in commercials, he’s on magazine covers, he’s omnipresent these days. Derrick Rose, meanwhile, has been injured and out of the spotlight the past few years.

Yet somehow this clown posts a photo on Twitter acting all jealous about his sister and her friends running into Derrick Rose, when in fact the player they saw was LeBron.

How jealous can you really be if you don’t even know the guys? Pathetic.

US Airways Twitter sends complaining customer most raunchy photo you will see


US Airways took some time on Monday afternoon to address unsatisfied customers on Twitter. That was nice of them, right? Most of our complaints to major corporations — especially airlines — fall on deaf ears. US Airways wasn’t about to let that happen, which is very admirable. We’re just a bit confused by their approach.

Whoever was operating the US Airways Twitter page sent at least two complaining customers an extremely raunchy and inappropriate photo. It featured a model airplane sticking out of a woman’s — well, do we really have to say?

Phil Ivey sued by casino for allegedly cheating house out of $9.6 million

Phil IveyProfessional poker player Phil Ivey is being sued by an Atlantic City casino that alleges he cheated in order to win $9.6 million over the course of four baccarat sessions in 2012, the New Jersey Law Journal reports.

The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City has sued Ivey alleging that he read defects in the back of patterns printed on playing cards in a method called “edge sorting.”

The suit accuses Ivey of breach of contract, fraud, conversion, unjust enrichment, civil conspiracy and racketeering, according to the report. It also names the card manufacturer — Gemaco Inc. of Blue Springs, Mo. — and Cheng Yin Sun, who accompanied Ivey on his trips to the Baccarat table and gave instructions to the dealer.

According to the suit, Ivey contacted the Borgata to set up special arrangements for a baccarat game in 2012. He asked for a private pit, dealer who spoke Mandarin Chinese so Sun could give the dealer instructions, and an automatic card shuffler. The casino believes the shuffler is key because it keeps all the cards facing the same direction.

The suit says Ivey won:

- $2.4 million on April 11, 2012
- $1.6 million on May 3, 2012
- $4.8 million on July 26, 2012
- $824,000 on Oct. 7, 2012

The suit says Ivey was up by as much as $3.5 million during the October session, but they believe he may have intentionally dumped after being confronted with reports from the hotel that he used the edge sorting method to win around $12 million at a London casino.

We covered a similar story back in Oct. 2012 when word emerged that Ivey was denied a payout by the London casino. It was revealed a year later that Ivey was using the “edge sorting” method to cash in.

Ivey supposedly claimed that he wanted his special conditions at the Borgata because he was superstitious, but they believe he was just requesting those conditions to maximize his ability to read the cards and manipulate the situation.

Ivey asked for the money to be deposited into his bank account in Mexico, where he lives.

Does the casino have a case here?

Borgata is trying to claim that Ivey broke a law that bans the use of marked cards inside a casino. They also supposedly are claiming that the automatic shuffler was used as a cheating device.

It’s pretty clear that Ivey was setting up these casinos because he found a way to exploit the system. Should he be forced to give the money because he was smart enough to exploit something he discovered? It doesn’t seem like that would be right, though he seemed to rig things in order to win.

I think the most fair option would be a settlement for a much smaller amount, which would be an acknowledgment that Ivey was smarter than the casinos, but still used some unsavory methods in order to take that much cash. Had he won much less, he probably would have escaped without an issue. Maybe that’s the penalty for being too greedy.

Oscar Pistorius claims he accidentally fired his gun

Reeva Steenkamp Oscar PistoriusThe Oscar Pistorius murder trial took an interesting turn on Wednesday when the six-time Paralympic gold medalist testified that he accidentally fired the shots that killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius’ defense all along has been that he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder, but not that the actual gunfire was a mistake.

Pistorius was being cross-examined by prosecutor Gerrie Nel when he claimed he did not mean to fire his weapon four times.

“I made a mistake,” he said several times.

“You made a mistake?” Nel replied. “You killed a person. You shot and killed Reeva Steenkamp. Why don’t you take responsibility for that?”

Nel then went on to show a close-up photo of Steenkamp’s head wound and told Pistorius to look at it. He spoke about a news segment earlier this year that that showed Pistorius firing shots at a watermelon.

“You know the same happened to Reeva’s head,” Nel said. “It exploded … It had the exact same effect, the bullet that went into her head.”

Pistorius then began sobbing and a recess was taken so he could compose himself. When he returned, he clarified what he meant when he said that the gunshots were accidental.

“I did not purposefully fire the shots through the door,” he said. “The accident was that I discharged my firearm because I believed an intruder was coming to attack me … The discharge was accidental. Before thinking, out of fear, I had fired four shots.”

Pistorius had previously testified that he fired the shots through the bathroom door because he feared there was an intruder inside. He never claimed the actual firing of the weapon was an accident. Neighbors have testified that they heard a woman scream before the shots were fired.
