Ian Kennedy ‘Jerked Off’ Before Start

Yes, it’s true. At least according to YES Network broadcaster, David Cone:

I have heard of relievers banging chicks from the stands in the clubhouse while the game was going on, and I’ve heard of relievers jerking themselves off while games were going on (also in the clubhouse), but I’ve never heard of a pitcher getting jerked off in the bullpen before a start. Maybe that explains why Don Zimmer was kept on staff so many years. Pretty good one by Coney, not quite as good as the goalie who made a “dick save,” but pretty good.

Major chest bump to Josh Alper at FanHouse for the vid.

Ohhh boy. Sometimes these headlines just write themselves. I was absolutely busting up like you couldn’t believe after seeing this video. It will only take about 10 seconds of your time, and make sure you have the volume down slightly if you’re at work — the language is mildly NSFW. Enjoy the enjoyment:

Maybe it’s the imagery of the whole event that gets me laughing. I dunno. I have the sense of humor of a 3rd grader, what can I say.

Announcer Roger Rasheed Likes Venus Williams’ Ass

Just last week we had a Golf Channel announcer make an off color remark about Tiger Woods — and that’s putting it mildly. Maybe I’m talking to myself here when I say that announcers need to watch what they say on-air. Remember a while back we had the story of the women’s basketball announcer who thought one of the coaches was hot but didn’t realize his microphone was live when he said it? Yeah, that was bad. Well Roger Rasheed is following in everyone’s footsteps. Check out what happened with him:

Roger Rasheed, a former coach of Lleyton Hewitt, commented on Williams bottom during a slow motion replay of her match against China’s Yan Zi at the Australian Open.

“Take a look at this now. Make or think as you will, ladies, but for me, that’s a pretty good sight,” The Daily Telegraph quoted him, as telling co-commentators Tracy Austin and Nicole Bradtke.

And while the two women found it funny, viewers certainly didnt and broadcaster Channel Seven was inundated with calls.

Though admitting that there had been a number of calls, the broadcaster maintained that there would be no action taken against Rasheed for his comments.

Now, I wonder what Venus’ alleged fiance would have to say about all this? Probably would just take it as a compliment — after all, it’s Serena who’s quite bootylicious.

Merril Hoge Slips Up a Cock

Merril HogeImagine my surprise when ESPN analyst, Merril Hoge, was signing off from the fantasy football show on Sunday, and let this slip out. Call it Freudian? I don’t know. I’ll let you decide for yourself:

I just can’t even imagine what it was like on set for Schwab and Matthew Barry. There’s no way you didn’t hear that one. Impressively, Hoge just kept rolling along like nothing had happened, didn’t even stop to correct himself.

Brian Billick Has a Potty Mouth

Here’s the thing: when you work in sports talk radio, you get used to watching out for cuss words on the air. Wouldn’t want to have a complaint go to the FCC, cost your station its broadcasting license, and get fired in the process. Therefore, you’re always looking out for s-bombs, f-bombs, and anything else that could get you in some serious crap with the U.S. gov. Anyways, what amazes me most about instances when people cuss on air, is the amazing naturalness with which they freely cuss. It’s almost as if the caller or interviewee feels they are in their living room having a conversation with some buddies while watching the game — which is almost how it should be.

Well, Awful Announcing — as if a blog by any other name would have come across the audio — has some sound of Ravens coach Brian Billick dropping an S-bomb on a Baltimore radio station. What’s so great about it, is the way he’s so unfazed about the cuss word. He just continues right along, as if nothings happened, finishing his point. It’s great. Skip ahead to around the 5-minute mark for the fun.
