And Now for Some NBAers ‘Living Lighter’ on a Vacation Cruise

This series is supported by LACOSTE Essential Sport

These guys seem to be having a great time, wouldn’t you agree? Included in the above photo are NBA players Richard Jefferson, Kareem Rush, and Luke Walton. What were they all doing? Enjoying themselves, I guess. Apparently the six friends took a vacation cruise together.  Their girlfriends may or may not have been present, not that there would be anything wrong with that one way or the other.  The activities they participated in included riding a four-person inflatable banana boat, as you can see in the image below.  Here are some more pictures of Luke Walton, Richard Jefferson and company’s bromance vacation, courtesy of Sports by Brooks:

One of the Greatest T-Shirts Ever Made

Now this is just phenomenal.  Tiger “The Mistress Master” Woods and Ben “No Means No” Roethlisberger on the same t-shirt, giving us a chance to poke fun at both at the exact same time?  This is just too good to be true.  Wait, it gets better.  According to Waggle Room, the Tiger Woods and Ben Roethlisberger Dumb and Dumber t-shirt comes from Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh.  The price tag on it? $3.00.  I’m in the process of trying to track down Primanti Brothers as we speak to order about a dozen of these…for myself.

So, Here’s Tiger Woods & Ben Roethlisberger on a Dumb & Dumber T-Shirt [Waggle Room]

We May Have Jumped the Gun a Bit with Patrick Kane…

Yes, Patrick Kane was still caught by his mother reading the fourth book in the Twilight series.  However, we also said that he’s staying out of trouble this summer, and while that’s true to a certain extent, he certainly hasn’t strayed from his ways.  As a matter of fact, he’s more than embraced them as he has traveled around enjoying his own victory parade with the Stanley Cup.

Deadspin has put together a collection of pictures and videos that include Kane drinking and eating things out of the Stanley Cup and getting “Iced” by his bros while touring.  Put it this way, he still hasn’t stopped partying since the Blackhawks clinched the Stanley Cup title.  Here’s the video of Patrick Kane getting “Iced” followed by some photos of him doing stupid things with the Stanley Cup.  Yeah, the first picture is indeed Kane at a Jimmy Buffet concert.

Patrick Kane’s Mom Bags Him Reading A Twilight Book

When I think of Patrick Kane, I think of him being drunk at the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup victory parade. In a more positive light, I think of him being a hero for the Blackhawks in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup by scoring the winning goal. And although Kane may not be the biggest or most aggressive hockey player I’ve ever seen, (in fact he’s far from being either) I never imagined him as a fan of the Twilight series.

Apparently the 21-year-old was caught by his mother reading the final book in the series, Breaking Dawn.  That’s not exactly how I envisioned Kane spending his off-season.  Here’s what he had to say about his somewhat embarrassing hobby:

Ohhhh,” Kane said with a laugh after regaining his composure. “She would throw me under the bus like that. I watched the first three movies and was really interested … so I decided to read the fourth book. I kind of snuck it in there, and she walked in a couple of times with me reading the book. I tried to hide it, but it wasn’t happening.”

Well good for you, Patrick.  I know a few guys who are closet Twilight lovers and unlike them, you manned up and admitted your addiction.  Also, I’ve got to give him props on staying out of trouble this summer, granted you don’t consider drinking from the Stanley Cup getting into trouble.  There are worse things Kane could be going than reading books about vampires.  Plus, the ladies are going to love him even more now that his “sensitive” side has been revealed.  All I have to say is, Kaner, finish the book and get back on the ice and win Chicago another cup. That’s an idea I could really sink my teeth into.

Jose Conseco Evicted from Home

Jose Canseco has led an interesting life.  On second thought, I’ll call it unique because much of it has nearly bored me to death.  He’s outed every steroid user he possibly could.  He tried his hand at reality TV.  He gave boxing a try and got knocked out.  He gave mixed martial arts a shot.  He scheduled a fight with a 60-year-old man and lost.  What have all these experiences led to?  Eviction from his home in Los Angeles.

Although TMZ is usually pretty accurate in reporting stories like these, I was a bit skeptical when I read their report this morning that claimed Canseco was kicked out of the home he was renting in L.A. after missing two months rent.  Unless someone hacked Canseco’s Twitter account Paul Pierce style, the story is completely true.  Check out some of the Tweets from Jose’s verified Twitter account:

Boston Pervs Beware: Shaq Has Been Known to Take Down Sexual Predators

We know that Shaq likes to dabble in a little police work every now and then.  It’s no secret that he has taken a liking to volunteer police work.  Shaq has assisted police forces in L.A., Miami, and Phoenix, but not in the way we might have envisioned.  When you picture a cop who’s over 7-feet tall, weighs over 300 pounds, and spends his free time getting ink, you’re probably thinking of that guy as an enforcer and a physical presence on the force.  The last thing that comes to mind when we think of Shaq as a cop is him posing as a young girl on the internet to help protect children from sexual predators:

I play a little girl on the Internet. So whatever name I’m going by, that will probably be my catchphrase. If I’m Tanya, then it’ll be something like, “Tanya says hello.” And they’ll be like, “Tanya who?” And I’ll say, “You don’t know no Tanya, huh? I’m Tanya. Let’s go.” And that’s when the cuffs get slapped on you.

So Shaquille O’Neal is one of the segways to Chris Hanson telling an internet perv to “have a seat.”  I know Shaq is a goofball and probably does an A+ job in this role, but I must say I’m pretty surprised by this.  I thought the police department would want to parade Big Daddy Diesel around for the intimidation factor but hey, if it works and helps protect kids from internet predators I’m all for it.  The best part about this story?  Jim Rome backed down from a guy who plays a little girl named Tanya on the internet.

This Astros Fan is a Pansy

Unfortunately for Houston Astros fans, I don’t know much about you.  Actually, that could be a good thing considering the types of things we’ve learned about Phillies fans over the past few months.  However you want to look at it, if you subscribe to the “first impression is the most important” theory, you’ll understand why Astros fans have some ground to cover if they want to earn my respect.  Check out this video of an Astros fan dodging a foul ball and letting it hit his girlfriend, courtesy of Barstool Sports:

I mean, come on.  Lost it in the lights?  And she refers to him as “baby” twice after that?  If I pulled a stunt like this when I brought my girlfriend to a Red Sox game, that would more than likely be the last time Fenway Park hosted a Steve DelVecchio date night.  At least he gave her the ball that pelted her square in the arm.  Oh, wait…
