Did Scott Van Pelt Unload an S-Bomb on SportsCenter?

Without a doubt, Scott Van Pelt is my favorite SportsCenter anchor. He’s witty, energetic, and delivers highlights in an entertaining fashion. That being said, he was left hanging out to dry badly last night. He seemed completely lost doing hockey highlights of the Red Wings/Sharks game, and even admitted on-air that he didn’t have a shot sheet in front of him (a list from which the anchor can read and describe the video highlights the audience is viewing). And then at one point, around the :42 second mark, it sounds like he says “shit, it’s too late for that,” as if a producer was telling him in his ear that they had the shot sheets or highlights ready. Then after he wraps up the hockey highlights and moves onto the Laker game, he jokingly says “I may have lost my job it’s hard to say, but until then someone takes me off the set I’ll do highlights…” Have to wonder why he would throw that line out there. Clearly someone hung Van Peezy out to dry and made him look really bad unfortunately.

Of course whatever Van Pelt did or did not say, it’s nothing compared to Danyelle Sargeant dropping an F-Bomb on ESPNEWS.

Mascots Dance Off

Alright, I’ll admit it — I have quite the elementary sense of humor. I still laugh at loud farts, strong wedgies, and five year olds who drop f-bombs. That’s why it’s no surprise that a break dancing contest between the Orioles Bird and the Devil Rays’ Raymond makes me laugh. Can’t speak for you, but it does the trick for me:

Thanks to DK for the tip.

UPDATE: The mascots dancing off made it onto real TV!

Andre Agassi Pops Steffi Graf in the Face

So most of us have already heard the story of Andre Agassi hitting his wife Steffi in the face with a racket during a charity match. Now thankfully, we have the video of it. Nice job by the fan who captured it. Ugh, everyone was laughing, smiling, have a grand ole time and then…whack!

It’s Like Rugby, Only Football

Man, quite bizarre. Check out the video passed along to me by esteemed site contributor GP John. It’s apparently of a Princeton/Yale football game from 1903. You would hardly recognize it these days as college football, looks more like rugby than anything else.

Since I mentioned rugby, I dug up this vid on YouTube. It’s flippin’ sweet.

Jason Whitlock Is the Balls

Let me get something out of the way here. In no way do I claim to be a professional writer on this site. I like to use it as a forum to voice my opinions, and to share anything around the internet I find interesting. Additionally, I don’t like to have this site clouded by issues that have taken mainstream media by stranglehold. What I mean is this — Don Imus’ comments, and the Duke Lacrosse scandal are more about ideological, political, and ethical beliefs, than they are about sports, even though the sports media has become consumed by such issues. That’s why I used a video created by someone else to share my thoughts on the Duke players being exonerated.

That’s also why I will do the same with the Imus case — which you may have noted has been noticeably missing from this site. Jason Whitlock writes professionally for the Kansas City Star and AOL Sports. He has captured my feelings on the issue more eloquently and persuasively than I possibly could have. That’s why I will link to his column, and show you a video interview of his thoughts, both courtesy the awesomeness that is The Big Lead.

Using the words Don Imus used is completely inappropriate. But the problem is, it’s not just Imus. Using those terms in any context is purely wrong. I don’t care if it’s rap music, I don’t care if it’s in a comedy sketch, any time those words are used, it perpetuates more negative thought. That’s what needs to be attacked, not Imus.

Duke Lacrosse Players Are Free

This is all you need to know to understand my thoughts on the whole case. Only this is much more tame than what I have to offer.

Better Athlete: Adrian Wilson or Joey Gathright?

Arizona Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson showed off his incredible athleticism by jumping over a 66-inch high pole. Wilson made the Pro Bowl for his performance in the 2006 season, and if his stats that year didn’t impress you, that video surely will.

Now, the question is, who’s the better athlete? Wilson, or MLB player Joey Gathright:
