JC Penney Anticipated a Celtics Win

First it was Macy’s misspelling “Los Angeles” on their Lakers championships shirts. Now, it’s JC Penney screwing things up. We’ve already touched on how the media and clothing companies prepare two sets of products depending on the possible outcomes of a major sporting event. Department store JC Penney is no exception, and as ProBasketballTalk points…Read More

Bengals Fans Will Enjoy Their New Prick

Just like the Bengals to take a jackass in the draft, right? Selecting guys with character problems seems to be their forte, that’s why I was surprised they elected for Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham over Dez Bryant.

Danyelle Sargent Probably Would Like This One Back

I first heard about this ever-so-awkward interview between FOX reporter Danyelle Sargent and 49ers head coach Mike Singletary on Monday. Unfortunately by the time I had a chance to take a peek, it had already been pulled down from YouTube. The video was posted a second time and then taken down because of copyright violation….Read More

LA Times Is Up-to-Date on its Hockey

LBS reader Andy happened upon the front page of the LA Times online the other day and noticed a nice feature story on Rob Blake getting some prominent play on the site. We’re talking about the front page of the entire site mind you, not just the sports section. And that’s in a town with…Read More
