Mark Sanchez a Justin Bieber Fan?

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez may have captured the hearts of the female population in New York, but it appears Justin Bieber has captured his.  It’s one thing for Tom Brady to have the Bieber haircut.  It’s another for a grown man to like him and attend his concerts.  When Sanchez danced to “I’m Every Woman” with Bieber and Tina Fay on Saturday Night Live a while back, we could only reasonably assume he was pretending to like the song as a joke.

Apparently, that’s not the case.  According to WFAN morning host Craig Carton, via Ben Maller, Mark Sanchez attended a Justin Bieber concert at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night.

Jets QB Mark Sanchez was in the crowd to see teen heartthrob Justin Bieber’s show at Madison Square Garden last night, according to WFAN. Morning host Craig Carton “reported” that Sanchez was in the crowd at the packed arena to see the 14-year-old sing. Earlier this year the Jets quarterback danced and sang along to “I’m Every Woman,” with Tina Fey and Bieber on Saturday Night Live.

I wonder if Sanchez was the only grown man with a five o’clock shadow amongst the crowd that wasn’t there to supervise his daughter.  In fact, when I phrase it like that I kind of wonder if he looked like a perv.  Marky Mark has Bieber Fever.  Kind of has a good ring, no?

Ochocinco Plans First Touchdown Dance

Chad Ochocinco — who probably salivates at the thought of a good end zone dance more than he does at the thought of a Super Bowl ring — has already announced his plans for his first touchdown celebration.  After seeing the Batman and Robin photoshoot, I expected his first end zone dance to have something to do with his new partner.  Turns out it’s a lot more complicated than that.  Relax, it doesn’t have anything to do with “Russell the love muscle” either.  No. 85 plans on firing one of the Patriots muskets if he finds pay dirt.

First of all, I don’t see how he could pull that off.  Those rifles can’t be that easy to fire, can they?  And would one of the guys who works at the Pats games and does the firing just hand him their gun?  I highly doubt it.

Second order of business: I’ll be at this game in Foxboro.  As a Patriots fan, I must admit I’m going to be a little torn.  I never want to see the home team give up a score, but I’m anxious to see Ochocinco’s approach.  Needless to say if the Pats jump out to a big lead, I’ll be secretly rooting for an Ochocinco score.

Forest Fire Started With A Golf Club…Believe It

Originally I would have thought there was only one way a golfer could start a forest fire, but I now realize there are two: dropping a lit stogie and smacking your club on a rock while hitting a shot from dry grass.  No, seriously.

Sports by Brooks informs us that it took 200 firefighters over seven hours to contain a 12-acre forest fire at Shady Canyon Golf Course in Irvine, California on Saturday afternoon.  Here’s what the Orange County Register reported about the blaze.

[Orange County Fire Authority Captain Greg] McKeown said the fire likely was sparked when a golfer – who knocked his golf ball into the grass that borders the fairway – struck a rock with his club trying to get the ball out of the rough.

I bet the golfer that hit the shot has never regretted missing the fairway more in his life if that is indeed what started the massive fire.  On a side note, Shady Canyon is supposedly the preferred golf course of Tiger Woods when he’s staying at home in California.  Then again, it’s awfully tough to gauge where exactly home is for Tiger these days.

Marcus Jordan Should Use His Head

Do I care that Marcus Jordan spent $35,000 at the Haze at Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas?  No.  Do I care that he’s only 19 years old and was more than likely poppin’ bottles?  No.  If that’s your idea of fun, then go for it.  Just don’t Tweet about it and make it everyone’s problem, forcing Nevada regulators to probe MGM resorts.

If Marcus wants to carry on the family tradition of having a serious gambling problem, that’s certainly his prerogative.  I’m even a fan of the girl he’s shown with in the pictures below, even if it is indeed his ex-girlfriend.  The Marcus Jordan Las Vegas pictures probably would have leaked to the public either way (see James, Lebron), but he needs to learn how to make it more of a challenge for us bloggers to get a hold of them.  Live and learn, young Airness.

Does Shaq Have a Man Crush on Tom Brady Already?

There were plenty of high profile athletes and celebrities in attendance on Saturday night at the T.D. Garden in Boston to watch James Toney embarrass himself and B.J. Penn get destroyed.  Among them were Tom Brady and Shaq.  Big Daddy Diesel signed with the Celtics less than a month ago, but it appears he’s already caught Brady fever.  He even took time out from making a ridiculous challenge to fight Hong Man Choi to Tweet his thoughts about the Patriots quarterback.  Those thoughts had nothing to do with sports.  Shocking, I know.

Sounds like a blatant man crush if you ask me.  Don’t be surprised if we see Shaq at a Pats game holding a “Will you marry me, Tom?” sign within the next few weeks.

Haircut Hazing Extends to College

Haircut hazing has officially reached epidemic status.  Maybe I just wasn’t paying attention as closely in past years or maybe it wasn’t as well-documented, but I don’t ever remember more rookies — and now freshmen — with bad haircuts leading up to the regular season.  The Patriots gave their rookies slightly embarrassing haircuts.  They were then outdone by Tim Tebow’s Friar Tuck haircut, the Jaguars more vulgar cuts, and the Raiders shaving one entire side of a rookie’s head and face.

According to Sportress of Blogitude, this is a first for the Minnesota Golden Gophers.  Is a coach yelling at them in the above photo, or are they just that humiliated?  Maybe they’re feeling the pressure of being leaned on to revive a program that ranked 113th out of 120 in sacks allowed and last in rushing in the Big Ten last season.  In any event, freshmen all over the country should now beware: haricut hazing has reached the collegiate level.  Here’s a look at all the rookie and freshman haircut hazing pictures we’ve featured to this point:

Skydiver Gets Hung at Rangers Game

The Rangers decided to entertain their fans on Tuesday night by having an Army Golden Knights parachute team drop in before the game. Unfortunately for one of the parachuters, he missed his mark and got stuck on the flagpole as we saw via Deadspin.

Luckily he was only up there for a few minutes and I think the fans got a good laugh out of watching him try to get off the flagpole. I’m not going to sit here and judge him though. If that were me, I probably would have missed the park completely.
