Floyd Mayweather should have worn high heels to the ESPYS

Floyd Mayweather Maria Sharapova

The ESPYS gave us one of the better pairings in history when they had Maria Sharapova team with Floyd Mayweather Jr. to present an award on Wednesday. And if there’s anything in the world that could bruise Floyd’s ego, it might be Maria’s height.

Floyd is 5-foot-8 and about 150 pounds. Sharapova is 6-foot-2 and about 130 pounds. Floyd’s a little guy. Maria is a huge woman. Stick Maria in some heels, and all of a sudden she’s looking like an NBA small forward.

The two actually played well off each other; Floyd got an elaborate “The Money Team” introduction skit from Drake. In response, Sharapova intentionally dwarfed him on stage to remind him who’s bigger. Floyd surprisingly was cool with the whole thing. Maybe that’s because he carries around a copy of his bank account balance and looks at it any time he’s feeling down.

At least the two gave us their best “Step Brothers” portrait:

The last time I saw a pairing this funny on the TV screen was when Arnold and Danny DeVito teamed up in “Junior.” If they ever tried to kiss, do you think Floyd would have to stand on a step stool? I mean, that’s what these two had to do when they kissed.

Drake nails Manny Pacquiao singing impression at ESPYs (Video)

One of Drake’s funnier skits at the ESPYs came when he did his impression of Manny Pacquiao singing.

In addition to being a world champion boxer, Pacquiao enjoys to sing. That doesn’t mean he does it very well, but that has never stopped the boxer from belting out a few verses. The man has even released an album.

Well Drake decided to poke some fun of that and did a skit where he dressed, talked and looked like Pacquiao in the “Sometimes When We Touch” music video. Below is the original Pacquiao video for comparison.

Those dudes looked like twins:

Drake looked very similar to Pacquiao, but this Pacquiao impersonator is still the best of all.

Sydney Leroux dominates ESPYs parties with white dress

Sydney Leroux ESPY white dress

Sydney Leroux is in Los Angeles for the ESPYs and has been absolutely dominating the red carpet scene.

The US women’s soccer player shared the photo you see at the top via Instagram, and apparently that’s how she looked for the “Body Party,” whatever the heck that is. I just know that if there’s something called the “body party,” Leroux is a worthy attendee.

Here’s LeBoo on the red carpet at the event:

And here is another picture she shared from the party.

The shame of it all is that Sydney LeBoo was in my city and I didn’t even do anything about it. How is that possible?

I’m sure your attention was no doubt captured by the girl on the left. I didn’t know that an open blazer with nothing underneath was an acceptable fashion choice, but I approve.

The girl in the pink blazer is named Natalie Lizarraga, and she’s one of Leroux’s friends. Head over to Page 2 to see more pictures of Natalie.

Oscar Pistorius reportedly involved in altercation at a bar

Reeva Steenkamp Oscar PistoriusOscar Pistorius was involved in an altercation with another man at a bar in South Africa over the weekend. According to Pistorius, clothing company big wig Jared Mortimer aggressively accosted him and started the dust-up. Mortimer claims Pistorius was drunk and sparked the exchange by insulting his friends and South African President Jacob Zuma.

As the Los Angeles Times noted, Pistorius’ spokeswoman Anneliese Burgess said in a statement that Pistorius was minding his business at the VIP Room in Johannesburg when Mortimer approached him and started talking about the Reeva Steenkamp trial.

“The individual in question, according to our client, started to aggressively engage him on matters relating to the trial,” Burgess said. “An argument ensued during which our client asked to be left alone. Oscar left soon thereafter with his cousin.”

Mortimer had a much different story for South African media outlets, claiming that Pistorius was drunk and being aggressive. Pistorius and Mortimer allegedly know each other through some of Oscar’s former friends.

“Oscar said to me, ‘Oh, you are the notorious Jared Mortimer,’” Mortimer told the Star. “Then he started talking about some of my friends, and he said he had statements and evidence that would get my friends into trouble. But he wouldn’t use it because he wasn’t that kind of person.

“He was drunk, but not bad. We were drinking tequila, and I still remember putting down my drink and thinking I couldn’t drink it while my friends were being spoken of like that.”

Mortimer says Pistorius then aggressively jabbed a finger into his chest, so Mortimer responded by shoving him. Pistorius reportedly fell backwards over a chair.

“He was poking me and saying that I would never get the better of him,” Mortimer explained. “He was close to my face and at that point I pushed him to get him away from me. A chair was behind his legs and he fell to the ground.”

Regardless of who is telling the truth, this is not the type of publicity Pistorius needs with his trial set to conclude later this month. Prosecutors have already attempted to prove that he has a temper and that Steenkamp admitted she was afraid of him at times. Bar fights certainly won’t improve the Paralympian’s image.

Jennie Finch blew fastballs by Adrian Peterson (GIF)

Adrian Peterson is a tremendous competitor, but even NFL superstars have to be careful what they wish for sometimes. During Sunday’s All-Star Legends and Celebrity Softball Game, Peterson challenged softball star Jennie Finch to throw the whole slow-pitch softball thing out the window and bring the heat.

Finch threw Peterson three straight fastballs during his second at-bat of the game. His reaction was priceless:

Adrian-Peterson-Jennie-Finch

After whiffing on the first, AP got credit for fouling off the next two. It’s unclear if he actually made contact, as he later said “it’s possible” and Finch jokingly replied that he’s “full of it.”

“I said, ‘Don’t take it easy on me. I want you to come with a fastball,’” Peterson explained, via ESPN.com. “She said, ‘What else?’ I said, ‘Changeup.’ Initially, I thought she was going to continue to throw them underhand, but she saw I was serious.”

Peterson also said he probably hasn’t swung a bat in 15 years, and it showed. Finch is a master of her trade. We all know what Peterson can do on the gridiron, but he’s clearly no match for Jennie.

Surfer gets nasty shark bite on his hand

Surfer-hand-bitten

Carson Jewell was body surfing off the coast of North Carolina on Saturday when he felt some pressure on his hand. Thankfully, it didn’t hurt when a shark was mangling the 32-year-old’s flipper.

As Jewell told WWAY, he saw a fin sticking out of the water 30 minutes before he was attacked. Rather than taking that as a sign that he should get out of the water, he ignored it and kept catching waves.

“My hand was out, and the next thing I know there was pressure and really rough,” Jewell explained. “It didn’t feel rough. Just felt like I knew exactly what was happening. It didn’t hurt. When I stood up I could feel the body of the shark hitting my legs. It had me no more than two seconds, and there was no time to react, to think about it, or to do anything heroic.”

Jewell remained calm and had some of his friends use a surfboard leash to tie a tourniquet around his hand and slow the bleeding. He was then able to walk to the backside of Masonboro Island, where the attack took place, and was later treated and released from the hospital.

Axelle Despiegelaere loses modeling contract over hunting photo?

Axelle-Despiegelaere-hunting

You know that 17-year-old Belgium fan that landed a modeling contract with L’Oreal after she was photographed at the World Cup? Axelle Despiegelaere worked with L’Oreal to create one social media video before her contract was terminated. A hunting photo that she posted on Facebook may explain why her gig was so short-lived.

Axelle’s Facebook page, which had nearly 30,000 likes but has since been deleted, featured several photos of her wearing Belgium colors and cheering on her team. There was also one photo that showed her holding a rifle and posing with a dead gazelle. It sparked outrage, as did the caption that went along with it.

Despiegelaere posted the photo before Belgium’s win over the United States. Here’s what she wrote, according to Business Insider:

“Hunting is not a matter of life or death. It’s much more important than that…this was about 1 year ago. Ready to hunt Americans today haha.”

After reading all the backlash from fans, Axelle changed the caption to simply read “this was about 1 year ago.” She also apologized to anyone she might have offended.
