Video: MMA Fighter Backflip Epic Fail

One could argue that everyone loses in an MMA fight.  Most of the time even when you win, you lose.  If you go three rounds with a guy and get your face pummeled enough that you have to immediately report to the hospital following the fight, you’re losing something even if you win.  If you can’t pull off a celebratory back flip and the result is a six-foot free fall onto your back, you lose even more.  Check out this MMA fighter backflip fail video, courtesy of Sportress of Blogitude:

I guess this guy needs to add the top-of-the-cage backflip to his next training regimen.  Either that or he should probably stop trying it, because that wasn’t even close.

Stuart Scott Drops an Accidental F-Bomb in Referencing Derek Anderson (Video)

Derek Anderson can thank Stuart Scott for making sure he wasn’t the only one dropping curse words on live television after the Cardinals embarrassing loss to the 49ers on Monday night.  Last night, we showed you Anderson’s rant after a reporter asked him why he was laughing during the game when his team was getting spanked.  As a Deadspin reader pointed out, our man Stu wanted to make sure the Cardinals’ QB was in good company, so he took it upon himself to warm up ESPN’s “bleep fucktion” — as he so gracefully put it.  Check out the Stuart Scott f-bomb video, courtesy of YouTube user weaksauc321:

Islanders’ Announcer Howie Rose is Sick of the Islanders (Video)

The New York Islanders are absolutely atrocious this year.  With a 4-12-4 record through 18 games, I can’t imagine there are many Islanders fans out there who are still holding out hope for a successful season.  Many have likely lost interest, but one person who has definitely lost interest is their TV announcer, Howie Rose.  How do I know that?  Why don’t you ask Howie himself?  Check out the video of Howie Rose bashing the Islanders on TV, courtesy of YouTube user blevine77:

Rose also does the TV announcing for the New York Mets in case you didn’t understand the “Is it spring training yet?” comment.  The comments were made during what Howie thought was a commercial break before the Islanders went on to lose their 13th straight game.  For that reason, the only real crime here is carelessness.  Rose later apologized for what he said and explained that he was unaware he was still on the air, but is there anyone out there aside from his producer that can honestly say they’re upset about it?  When a team is that horrendous, you can’t expect a guy who has to watch them every night to be immune to the stench — even if he’s getting paid to do it.  Thanks to Deadspin for the heads up on the video.

New England’s Bret Lockett Misspells “Patriots” on Decorated Denim

Last week at the Elizabeth Glaser Kids for Kids Celebrity Carnival, New England Patriots safety Bret Lockett designed a pair of denim jeans for his nephew at American Eagle’s 77kids denim decorating booth.  Nice gesture, right?  Let’s just say I hope the nephew is too young to spell.

As told by the NY Post, Lockett misspelled the word “Patriots” and instead wrote “Go Patrits” on the back pocket of the jeans.  Maybe he forgot the “O” because he plays defense?  Wow, terrible joke.  In all seriousness though, I know how that goes.  Sometimes you just get so caught up in the bedazzling that you forget how to spell and the glue dries and then it’s too late.  No, but seriously in all seriousness, we’ll give Lockett the benefit of the doubt just for attending the event, which was a benefit for pediatric AIDS research.

Those Sacramento Kings Are Playing Some Good Hockey

In one picture, you’ll see why I never got into watching sports on the local news:

That blunder took place on CBS channel 2 in Los Angeles with Jim Hill as the news anchor, and it was brought to our attention by the great Ben Maller via LA Observed. Can you imagine the LA Kings are a hometown team, playing outstanding hockey, and yet the local LA newscast posts a Sacramento Kings logo in place of theirs? Not only is that the wrong team, it’s the wrong sport! Who do they have working there?

Scott Van Pelt Says the Spotlight Fixed on ‘South Bitch’ for Heat Opener (Video)

Nothing like a classic Freudian slip to cap off a Friday night.  Don’t tell me Scott Van Pelt didn’t mean to call South Beach “South Bitch” on SportsCenter late Friday night/early Saturday morning.  I mean come on, LeBron James is the headliner down there now.  Chris Bosh, Mr. “I want to be on TV!“, now plays for the Heat.  If the shoe fits.  Check out the video of Scott Van Pelt calling South Beach “South Bitch” on SportsCenter.  Well, it’s kind of an audio of the video, but we’ll try to get you an actual clip later if you’re having trouble visualizing the act.

Possibly the Most Hilarious Titans Headline Screw-Up Ever

Kudos to Ted Williams Head for picking up on one of the most incredible journalistic headline failures of all-time.  We’ve shown you some great screw-ups here at LBS, but this one ranks among the best.  Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Derek Cox, a third-round selection in 2009, has played his way back into the starting lineup after struggling early in the season.  After a solid showing against the Bills off the bench last Sunday, writers at Tennessean.com apparently believe Cox is a player to watch in the upcoming Jaguars-Titans game.  As a matter of fact, they think the Titans will have their hands full with him.

Natually, Tennessean.com has since removed the headline and changed it to “Titans Will Have Hands Full With Jaguars’ Cornerback,” but I don’t know how you could print something like that and not pick up on it right away.  That has to have been intentional, right?
