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.

T.O. and Ochocinco are Officially Batman and Robin

If Marvin Lewis really was unhappy about the signing of Terrell Owens, moments like these probably don’t do a lot to help ease his concerns.  In a photo-shoot that I still don’t fully understand that appears to have been done for a special that will be run in the Cincinnati Enquirer Sept. 5th, you could say that T.O. and Chad Ochocinco officially became Batman and Robin.  At least they think they are, as Tweets about Brett Favre and Jay Mariotti seem to indicate. Now, we’re talking Batmobile and everything.

It’s no secret that these two receivers have a few screws loose.  All I can say is they’d be wise to put up respectable numbers on Sundays.  Otherwise, there will be plenty of outside distractions for fans and coaches to blame.  Take these pictures of T.O. and Ochocinco posing as Batman and Robin with the Batmobile as a prime example:

More Ochocinco Twitter Shenanigans

On Saturday, I expressed my feelings about Chad Ochocinco and his Tweets.  I thought it was hilarious that he decided to Tweet to his best pal and new teammate, T.O. (aka Batman), and chime in on the Jay Mariotti arrest.  I’ve since developed a habit of checking Ochocinco’s Twitter account daily, and so far I really have yet to be disappointed.  I reached out to our readers to stop me from thinking this guy is funny, but I ain’t heard nothin’ yet.

Apparently the NFL fined Ocho $25,000 for Tweeting about a hit he took during the Bengals preseason game against the Eagles.  Somehow, Chad managed to make a humorous comment about the fine and relate it to his Bugatti payments via, of course, Twitter:

The guy just seems like he’s having fun.  Even Goodell must laugh at some of the stuff he comes up with.  Whether it’s sending deodorant to an opposing defense or kicking an extra point, you can’t argue that Ochocinco isn’t having a good time at work.  I’m not saying the NFL is a joke or should be taken lightly, but I think it could use more light-hearted personalities like Chad.  For those of you debating whether or not I have a man crush — not yet, but I may be getting there.

Ochocinco Tweets to ‘Batman’ About Mariotti Arrest

Word is spreading quickly about the arrest of ESPN’s Jay Mariotti, and it’s certainly no surprise that Chad Ochocinco has decided to weigh in on the matter via Twitter.  Call me crazy, but I’m kind of starting to think the whole Batman and Robin thing is funny, especially when Ocho Tweets ridiculous things to T.O. on Twitter using their aliases.  Check out these Tweets from Chad Ochocinco about Jay Mariotti:

For those of you who haven’t heard, Ocho is referring to the hit he took in Friday night’s preseason game against the Eagles.  Between this, the Tweet to “Batman” about Brett Favre stealing the media spotlight, and Chad’s other little shout-outs to his new teammate, I’m actualy starting to warm up to the shenanigans.  Somebody want to talk me out of it, please?

Jay Mariotti Arrested

According to the L.A. Times blog, Fanhouse writer and ESPN Around the Horn guest Jay Mariotti was arrested Friday night in L.A. and booked on suspicion of a felony, which would appear to be a domestic disturbance.  As of this morning, Mariotti was still being held on $50,000 bail.

When I first heard the news, I thought for sure it would have something to do with a DUI, since that seems to be the go-to crime for athletes and celebrities.  That doesn’t seem to be the case.  Here is the latest from the L.A. Times about the incident:

[Updated at 9:30 a.m.: LAPD sources said Mariotti allegedly got into an argument with his girlfriend at a club in Santa Monica.

The argument continued at the couple's apartment in Venice, where some type of physical altercation allegedly occurred. Police were called to the apartment, and Marioitti was arrested. He is currently being held at the 77th Street station.]

Somewhere, Robert Ebert is smiling.

Bull Jumps Into Stands to Get Revenge

We’ve had quite a few misadventures in bullfighting lately. Well, maybe misadventures is not the correct term since all the disasters seem to be par for the course. We’ve seen a bull gore a matador in the nuts, a wimpy matador flee the ring, and the ultimate was the matador gored through the chin and out the mouth.

The latest escapade was a bull going for a joyride in the stands of a fight in Spain. Can you imagine some of the people in the front row? They all probably bragged to their friends that they had premium seats to a bullfight that day. Who’s the idiot now, huh? Check out this video of a bull jumping into the stands to exact revenge on the fans:

Mike Tomlin in a Tough Position

No, this has nothing to do with the fact that Mike Tomlin’s two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback is suspended to start the season.  It has nothing to do with the fact that his No. 1 receiver was traded to the New York Jets.  This is more about what he’s wearing and who he’s with.

Apparently, a Barstool Sports reader got these pictures from some girls who partied with Tomlin.  According to the reader, the girls said the Steelers coach was “nuts and got wasted.”  Nothing wrong with having a little fun, but can’t Tomlin find something better to wear and someone better to party with?  All I can say is, woof.
