Colin Kaepernick shows off latest tattoo

kaepernick-new-tattoo

If there’s one thing we know about Colin Kaepernick, it’s that he is a fan of tattoos.

They have been the source of outrage for some in the past, but it hasn’t stopped him from continuing to add more, like the update he did to his chest.

Last week, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback teased via his Instagram account that new ink was on the way. In his latest post we find out the near finished product.

Kaepernick added the following caption:

“Money is the root of all evil! Amazing work by @carlostorresart #WhatWouldYouDoForSomePaper #WhatAreYouReallyAbout”

Having recently signed a six-year contract extension, with $61 million guaranteed, Colin Kaepernick certainly knows a bit about having money. However much of it was used on this design was well spent because that’s high quality work, indeed.

Katherine Webb shows off wedding invitation

Katherine Webb wedding invitation

Katherine Webb AJ McCarronJust as A.J. McCarron is preparing to go to training camp with the Cincinnati Bengals, his girlfriend/fiancee Katherine Webb is preparing for an even bigger event.

Webb shared the photo seen above via Instagram Tuesday and it shows off the front of their wedding invitation. The two are set to be married on Friday.

There was a report saying their wedding would be a part of a reality show, but they said that was not the case.

Webb and McCarron got engaged in March as AJ prepared to launch his NFL career following four excellent seasons at Alabama. They actually met over Twitter in the fall of 2012 and will be married less than two years later.

Brandon McCarthy makes Seinfeld joke about Yankees retired numbers

Brandon-McCarthy-AsBrandon McCarthy is taking his tremendous sense of humor to New York, and the first thing he has to do before starting the next chapter of his career is pick a jersey number. Since the Yankees have retired 17 (No. 8 twice) of them, that is not always an easy task.

McCarthy wore No. 32 with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Oakland A’s. That number, which was worn by former Yankees catcher Elston Howard, was retired in 1984. Naturally, McCarthy turned his search for a new number into a well-timed Seinfeld joke.

The right-hander eventually settled on No. 38, but not without first reminding us of a phenomenal Kramer moment. Mr. McCarthy is just as much of a hoot as his wife.

Robert Griffin III getting statue at new Baylor stadium

robert-griffin-iiiBaylor is opening a new 45,000-seat football stadium this fall. Robert Griffin III is a big part of the reason the Bears outgrew their old facility, so the team is thanking him in a big way. According to David Ubben of Fox Sports Southwest, Baylor has decided to honor RG3 with a statue at McLane Stadium.

The 9.5-foot bronze statue will be installed and unveiled in the south end zone before Baylor’s regular-season opener against SMU at the end of August. Tom White and his wife Marcey, owners of Tom White Studios in Texas, built the statue after taking photos of Griffin in his Baylor uniform and allowing him to choose his favorite ones.

“We’d like to keep all photos of it private and anything to describe the pose so there’s some surprise at the unveiling,” Marcey told Fox Sports Southwest. “It’s gonna be awesome. It’s a great tribute to him and all of his wonderful accomplishments.”

RG3 won the Heisman Trophy at Baylor in 2011 after racking up nearly 5,000 yards of total offense and throwing 37 touchdowns and just six interceptions. He scored another 10 touchdowns on the ground. Griffin also led Baylor to its first bowl game in 19 years and helped put the football program back on the map.

Despite the aforementioned accomplishments, plenty of people feel that the statue is premature (see some tweets here) considering RG3 has yet to accomplish anything significant at the NFL level. Baylor is honoring him for what he did at Baylor, not what he has done with the Washington Redskins.

Report: Josh Gordon driving PJ Hairston’s car at time of DWI arrest

Josh-Gordon-mug-shot

While Charlotte Hornets first-round draft pick P.J. Hairston was off allegedly punching a 17-year-old in the face during a YMCA pick-up basketball game this weekend, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was getting arrested for driving while impaired in Hairston’s car. Well, Hairston’s incident happened on Sunday and Gordon’s on Saturday, but you get the point.

Will Brinson of CBSSports.com reported on Monday that the 2015 GMC Yukon that was being driven by Gordon at the time of his arrest is registered to Samuel Peterson Hairston Jr., which is P.J. Hairston’s full legal name.

In addition, the man who posted Gordon’s $500 bond was Haydn “Fats” Thomas, a convicted felon who allegedly loaned Hairston the car he was driving last year when he was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and driving without a license. Hairston did not play for UNC all of last season due to his legal issues.

Did you follow all that? Simply put, it appears that Gordon and Hairston — two professional athletes who have had numerous problems off the court — run with the same inner circle. It sounds like they both need to get away from it.

Jadeveon Clowney: My goal is to sack Andrew Luck

Jadeveon-ClowneyJadeveon Clowney is hoping to make an impact this season as a rookie with the Houston Texans. In order to do that, the former South Carolina star feels he needs to take down a guy who made an impact as a rookie in 2012.

In a recent video that was posted on the Texans’ official website, Clowney said one of his main goals in 2014 will be sacking Andrew Luck.

“My goal for the rookie season is to try to better myself as a player,” he said, via Pro Football Talk. “And my goal in the NFL is to sack Andrew Luck. He’s in my division, playing him two times a year, he’s a dangerous quarterback, he makes good decisions with the ball, so I just want to get after him and sack him one time.”

That’s certainly a good place to start. Luck is easily the best quarterback in the AFC South division, and the Indianapolis Colts are heavy favorites to repeat as division champions. At age 24 and entering his third NFL season, Luck could be poised for a breakout year. The Texans will need Clowney to get after him — among other things — if they want to take down the Colts.

Johnny Manziel allegedly rolling bills in a bathroom does not mean he was doing cocaine

Johnny Manziel rolling bill bathroom money

Things are really getting out of hand in terms of how much Johnny Manziel is covered and hounded by the media and public.

I mean the guy goes to Las Vegas for July 4th weekend, and he can’t even make it through without some photo emerging insinuating nefarious activities.

Busted Coverage received the photo seen above and says they were sent the picture by an emailer who says it’s of Manziel rolling money in a bathroom. Manziel was in Vegas for the weekend and there are other pictures showing Manziel in the same exact gray shirt and gold chain. This is Manziel with model Dallas Nicole wearing the same clothes:

Norm Clarke of the Las Vegas Review-Journal has some details on Manziel’s weekend:

Spies said he stayed in the Real World Suite at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with friends, partied at XS nightclub at Encore and dined at STK, the steakhouse at The Cosmopolitan.

I’m not really sure why people take a look at that photo of Manziel and automatically conclude he was rolling bills in a bathroom for the purposes of snorting cocaine.

What, like you’ve never rolled money in front of a bathroom sink before?

What if those weren’t even dollar bills in the picture? Or what if he was rolling the bill in his hand to grease the bathroom attendant, security guard or someone else? Or heaven forbid he actually used the bill to wipe his nose because he’s rich and can do that sort of thing, and he was just rolling up all the snot. Don’t act like you wouldn’t do that too if you were a millionaire.

You people can go out there and jump to your own unfair, ridiculous conclusions all you want. Just know that when it comes down to it, there is always one site who will have Johnny Manziel’s back, defending him every time silly stories come out trying to get him in trouble. For all we know, just like that picture of Manziel’s Heisman Trophy holding a blunt, this can be a total fake or plant job by some jealous fans looking to railroad the guy’s career. Everyone’s always out to bring down this guy. Manziel’s the real victim here, just like he was when this picture came out, too.

Don’t worry, Johnny, we have your back. Keep doing your thing and don’t let these ridiculous stories bring you down.
