Jim Nantz and wife Courtney have baby girl

Jim Nantz wife baby

Jim Nantz and his new wife Courtney said hello to a new friend this week.

Nantz, the top announcer for CBS, typically calls the Big Ten tournament, but he’s not this week because he was with his wife, Courtney, who gave birth to the couple’s first child. CBS Sports Network shared the photo seen above during the telecast for one of their Mountain West Conference tournament games on Friday night and explained why we wouldn’t be hearing Nantz’s voice on Sunday.

Nantz, 54, was married to his ex-wife for 26 years until they divorced in 2009. The divorce was ugly and played out in public. He began dating 29-year-old Courtney Richards before the divorce was finalized. The two married at Pebble Beach in 2012, and now they have their first child — Finley Cathleen Nantz.

Congratulations to the couple!

Jess Brigham now wants a piece of Julian Edelman

Julian EdelmanOn Thursday, porn industry girl Jess Brigham, who insists she is NOT a porn star, received attention for offering sex to Vince Wilfork to keep the defensive tackle with the New England Patriots. Brigham one-upped that tweet by saying she would also offer the sex to new free agent signee Darrelle Revis, too.

Brigham is obviously a big Patriots fan and will do what she can to keep the team together. For that reason, she followed things up on Friday with a tweet about free agent Julian Edelman, who is considering signing with several teams.

How big of a football fan is Brigham? Check out this tweet she sent:

So far there hasn’t been a response from any of the Patriots players, but we have a feeling they may try to cash in on the sly.

This might be the funniest job ad I’ve ever seen

I have no idea if this job ad is real or fake, but I really don’t care because it’s the funniest damn thing I’ve ever seen. By the looks of it, it’s a job listing that was posted on Craigslist in January 2013.

So what’s up with the ad? The job poster claims that someone broke into his home, stole his TV remote and drives by and changes the channel. He was looking for someone to sit as security and try to catch the drive-by TV channel changer. Too great.

And suddenly I just got a great idea for an amazing prank.

Playmate Liz Dickson suing Playboy after golf shot allegedly hit out of her butt cheeks

Golf-teeApparently somebody’s mother never told them one of the most basic rules of childhood — never let someone stick a golf tee between your butt cheeks and try to hit a drive. It never ends well, and Playboy model Liz Dickson is claiming she found that out the hard way back in May 2012.

Dickson is reportedly suing Playboy and radio host Kevin Klein for a stunt she was talked into at a Playboy golf tournament a couple years back. As TMZ revealed, Dickson claims in the lawsuit that she was told to lie on her stomach and pose for a photo with Klein. A golf tee was then placed between her butt checks and a ball was teed up on it.

Klein allegedly took a swing at the ball and missed, drilling Dickson in the rear end instead. She claims she suffered serious injuries — some permanent — when the club hit her and is also suing for $500,000 in punitive damages.

That doesn’t sound like it was a pleasant experience, though I don’t know why Dickson wouldn’t stop allowing it to happen when she realized a tee was placed between her cheeks. Only David Feherty would be stupid enough to do something like that.

Michelle Beadle ‘honored’ to be paralyzed teen Jack Jablonski’s prom date

Jack Jablonski Michelle Beadle

Jack Jablonski is definitely going to have the coolest date at his high school prom.

Jablonski, a teenager who was paralyzed from the chest down after being checked into the boards head-first during a high school hockey game in 2011, asked ESPN personality Michelle Beadle to his prom Wednesday, and she said yes.

Jablonski was co-hosting his weekly “Hockey Night in Minnesota” segment on 105 The Ticket and invited Beadle to be his guest on the show for the second time.

Jablonski’s co-hosts, Bob Sansevere and Mike Morris, were teasing the youngster about his crush on the “SportsNation” co-host prior to her guest appearance. Listeners quickly learned that Jablonski had something bigger planned.

A few minutes into the interview, Jablonski, who is a student at Benilde-St. Margaret’s School in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, asked Beadle to his prom.

“I’d formally like to invite you to my prom,” Jablonski said after his co-hosts introduced the subject.

Beadle gasped with excitement and astonishment, and she quickly said yes.

“Seriously, I would love it,” said Beadle.

“Can I wear an ’80s dress to the prom?” she asked, showcasing her typical quick humor and wit.

“And no alcoholic beverages, Jack, I will be watching,” she joked.

For Beadle, she’s hoping this will be her first positive prom experience after two disasters back when she was in high school.

The ESPN host told Larry Brown Sports that she has known Jack through Twitter the past few years. She shared her thoughts on the prom invite.

“I know that he’s a badass and someone I look up to immensely,” Beadle wrote to Larry Brown Sports in an email. “I was shocked when he asked today. And I adore him for doing it live on the radio. I’m honored to squeeze my 38 year old behind into a formal gown for a great night!”

This date sounds awesome and we can’t wait to hear how the night goes. The prom is in May.

And we have to commend Jablonski for having the courage to ask Beadle on air — that was very cool and it took a lot of guts!

Video after car crash at SXSW kills two

SXSW car crashTwo people died and more than 20 others were injured after a car crashed into a crowd at the South by Southwest festival in Austin early Thursday morning.

One person recorded a video in the aftermath following the car crash and interviewed some people who witnessed the scene. One man described the car as a ’90s looking Subaru that crashed into the crowd.

Two women who were waiting to go into a club said the car was doing about 70 mph when it plowed into the group.

“I saw all these people flying … it was terrifying,” said one of the witnesses.

Two people were confirmed dead on the scene, more than 20 others were transported to various hospitals, and 5-7 had more serious injuries, according to the AP.

The driver who killed the people is in custody.

Oscar Pistorius reportedly shot gun out of car sunroof without warning

Reeva Steenkamp Oscar PistoriusThe prosecution in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial seems intent on proving that the six-time Paralympic gold medal winner has a thing for guns. On Tuesday, Pistorius’ friend Darren Fresco took the stand and spoke about an incident where an allegedly angry Pistorius fired a gun through the sunroof of a car.

Fresco said that he was the driver of a car that was stopped by police in 2012 for a routine traffic violation. During the stop, Fresco said an officer handled Pistorius’ weapon. This allegedly infuriated Pistorius.

“(The) officer had picked up the accused’s weapon, to which the accused said ‘You can’t just touch another man’s gun,’” Fresco recalled. “He was furious about it, that someone else had touched his gun.”

To express his displeasure, Fresco claims Pistorius later fired the weapon through the sunroof of the car.

Pistorius’ ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor also testified about the sunroof shooting incident, claiming Oscar and Fresco joked about shooting a “robot,” or traffic light, before Pistorius fired the gun. Taylor also said that Pistorius used to sleep with a gun at his bedside and woke up several times during the night to investigate noises he heard while they were dating.

Last week, another friend of Pistorius testified that Oscar accidentally fired a weapon in a restaurant once and begged Fresco to take the blame.

We all know I’m hardly a legal expert, but I could see the “trigger-happy” angle working for either the prosecution or the defense in this case. Pistorius’ alleged quick finger could explain why he was so quick to shoot at what he thought was an intruder, or it could explain why he was so quick to shoot Reeva Steenkamp if they got into an argument. That will be for the judge to decide.
