Floyd Mayweather Jr. Heckled by Manny Pacquiao Fans While Shopping

Looks like Floyd Mayweather Jr. can’t go anywhere without some trouble these days. When he’s not causing problems like this and this, things seem to find him. Based on this video uploaded at YouTube and seen at Dog House Boxing, Mayweather was shopping at a high-class store inside the new Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas recently. The store was essentially shut down for him to walk around, and you could see his enormous traveling entourage. He needs all the protection with all the hate towards him. When he walked out of the store, all the people around were chanting Manny, for Manny Pacquiao (watch the cuss word at the beginning):

Hopefully that’s what Floyd encounters every step he takes and every corner he turns. He needs to fight Manny Pacquiao and fight him now. Why should sports fans have to put up with a Shane Mosley-Manny Pacquiao fight when Floyd is available? This has gone on far too long.

Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Heckles Baron Davis, Other Players

One of the main reasons the Los Angeles Clippers have been so terrible in recent years is that their rich, racist owner doesn’t care about winning.  We already told you how much it sucks to be a Clippers fan, but being a player is no picnic either.  Sure, losing is frustrating, but how would you feel if your boss was heckling you while you were trying to do your job?  Baron Davis and a few other Clippers know all about it.

According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been taunting his own players from his courtside seat since the middle of last season.  Among the things Sterling shouts are “Why are you in the game?” and “You’re out of shape!”  Davis, who inked a five-year deal worth $65 million two season ago, is said to be Sterling’s main target.

“There’s nothing I can say,” Davis said of Sterling’s taunts. “I have no comment on that. You just get to this point where it’s a fight every day. It’s a fight. You’re fighting unnecessary battles. I’m fighting unnecessary battles. It’s frustrating because I know and my teammates know I’m capable of getting it done, even dudes on the other team. It’s frustrating.”

Baron’s right — what can he do?  Sterling’s a notorious nut job that obviously has no desire to win.  If your boss harassed you on the job and you knew you were going to get paid anyway, why bother trying?  It’s only a matter of time before Blake Griffin figures it out and takes his freakish dunking abilities elsewhere.

UPDATE: Here’s a picture of Sterling appearing to heckle Baron via SI’s Vault.

Giants Fan Heckles Keith Hernandez for Sleeping on the Job

It’s been over two months since Jerry Seinfeld’s good friend Keith Hernandez fell asleep in the broadcast booth during an extra-inning game between the Mets and Giants. Not surprisingly, the fans haven’t forgotten. They also haven’t stopped letting him hear about it. Here’s a video of a Giants fan heckling Keith Hernandez for falling asleep in the broadcast booth, courtesy of Tirico Suave:

It seems the only thing that gets under Hernandez’s skin more than being heckled about this embarrassing moment is a confrontation with Jose Reyes. Props to the heckler for being loud enough to be heard on the TV broadcast. I’m not really sure what Keith means when he says, “I wish I could say something back but we’re on the air.” What can he say? The man fell asleep on the job. He can tell the fan to shove it if it makes him feel better, but at the end of the day when you do something that hilarious, you can expect to be heckled about it for a long, long time.

Fan Heckles Tiger Woods, Pays The Price

Using a Taser has apparently gained popularity as the most efficient way of controlling unruly fans at sporting events across the country.  The Philadelphia Phillies’ security team made national news earlier this week when they used a Taser to drop a fan who jumped onto the field and outran them for a while — apparently angering the security guard who was chasing after him.  The PGA is now getting in on the action as a means of protecting Tiger Woods from inconsiderate fans.  According to Deadspin, via NY Daily News, Security guards at The Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach called the sheriff after a fan refused to stop heckling Tiger on Friday.  Apparently he still wouldn’t give it up when officers got there, inspiring deputies to Taser and arrest the fanTravis Parmelee, 36, of Jacksonville, Fla. has been charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest.  I’m shocked alcohol was involved.

Maybe the genius who flew banners with phrases heckling Tiger over Augusta knew what they were doing when they chose to take shots at him from an altitude of several thousand feet.  Clearly, the PGA isn’t going to tolerate any extensive harassment of its former poster boy, so it’s probably safer to do it that way if you must.  We knew when Tiger returned stories like this one would start surfacing.  I found it quite fitting that this particular incidence happened to involve the newest fad in professional sports — the Taser.  Gotta love this guy’s Hawaiian shirt, too.  Great touch.

Big Baby Davis Cusses at Fan Over ‘Fat Boy’ Heckling

Last year we saw Celtics forward Glen Davis earn his nickname of “Big Baby” by crying after teammate Kevin Garnett got on his case. Now I’m really believing he got the nickname because of real life experiences. The poor guy is so thin-skinned he let a heckling fan in Detroit get the best of him on Wednesday night:

Alex Rios Apologizes for Platinum Sombrero-Inspired YouTube Fan Tirade

Ladies and gentleman, the moment we’ve all been waiting for finally came. Yes that’s right, we had our first platinum sombrero of the season. As Gilbert and I were discussing in the comments, Alex Rios of the Blue Jays took an 0-for-5 with five strikeouts against the Angels on Thursday, earning the rare and coveted Platinum Sombrero, the second of his career in fact. Rios is a talented player who has what I’ve called the best-looking right handed swing in baseball (J.D. Drew wins my award for a lefty). But Rios has had his low points. Thursday would count as one of them, and I wish his story ended on the field. Unfortunately it didn’t. As documented by this video at Deadspin, some jerkoff fans heckled Rios who was coming out of a charity event, riding him about going 0-fer and getting upset when he didn’t sign an autograph. The video has plenty of F-bombs and profanity and seemed to be a setup by the fans:

What bothers me is that Rios is the one who later apologized (due to pressure from the club I’m sure, only because the video wound up online). But for anyone who watches the video I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s the fans who should be issuing the apology. Just because they’re fans who support the team and because Rios is a public figure who makes millions doesn’t mean he’s not a person. That doesn’t give you the right to harass him outside the stadium when he’s on personal time. That doesn’t give them the right to make some mean-spirited remarks. They’re the jerks who should be apologizing for an embarrassing performance.

Also, as the Platinum Sombrero moniker has picked up steam all throughout the internet as a result of Rios’ tirade, let it be known that LBS has been up on this for the longest. Also, LBS is the only site that will also point out that Mike Cameron achieved the Golden Sombrero that very same day, his coming against the Marlins. You just can’t buy that type of coverage anywhere else!

Video: Ed Werder Heckled by Cowboys Fan for Poor Journalism, Pot-Stirring

ESPN really is getting so annoying and carried away with their coverage of the Dallas Cowboys. In fact, the Cowboys have truly become what the Yankees are to them during the summer — only for football season. They have like daily reports on the Cowboys, give higher priority to any team news, and it always seems like they’re trying to drum up controversies to make things more interesting. What’s happening with the Cowboys isn’t much different from most locker rooms in terms of in-fighting and disagreements. But ESPN loves to take the Cowboys and put them front-and-center in the news cycle and create controversies to boost interest.

Apparently a devoted Cowboys fan has noticed that ESPN is creating a soap opera in Dallas, using reporter Ed Werder as their point man. “Cowboy Chris” as he’s known on YouTube, absolutely goes off on Werder as he’s trying to film a report on the scene. Mass hysteria ensued (language NSFW):

While I don’t agree with the guy’s methods for protesting Werder’s work, he does make legitimate points: who are these anonymous sources? Isn’t this yellow journalism? Cowboy Chris was pretty impressive, but the best hecklers of all-time were the Stephen A. Smith guys. Nobody tops them.

Oh, and what was Cowboy Chris so upset over? Werder reporting that T.O. was jealous of Jason Witten’s relationship with Tony Romo.
