Snoop Dogg now a UCLA fan?

Snoop Dogg UCLA

Is Snoop Dogg the new Lil’ Wayne? The rapper/entertainer has always been a USC fan and was so closely associated with the program, a report said he helped recruit running back Silas Redd to the Trojans. But now he apparently feels comfortable repping the UCLA Bruins.

UCLA football coach Jim Mora tweeted the above photo on Tuesday, along with a message talking about the “Bruin Revolution”:

Yasiel Puig parties with Snoop at Playboy Mansion after All-Star snub

Yasiel Puig Playboy mansion  Snoop

Yasiel Puig may not have been selected for the MLB All-Star Game, but he did manage to score an invitation to the Playboy Mansion on Monday night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers rookie spent the first day of his All-Star break attending the 8th annual Bear Trap Entertainment (BTE) All-Star Celebrity Kickoff Party at the Playboy Mansion. He mixed it up with several fellow athletes and entertainers, including music stars Snoop Dogg Lion and Chris Brown.

LBS attended the event and saw Puig all over the place rubbing elbows with other famous athletes. He had a friend/assistant take several photos of him with people, and some of the photos were posted to the slugger’s Instagram account.

Snoop was pretty faded at the event, but he did get into a batting stance opposite Puig for one of the photos they took together, making for an awesome picture. Hanging with Snoop and Brown seemed to be the highlight for Puig, who has hit .391 with eight doubles and eight home runs in 38 games for the Dodgers.

Below are several more photos of Puig at the event. Here he is with rapper Chris Brown and Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller:

Snoop Dogg to Aaron Hernandez: ‘Keep ya head up! We prayin 4 ya’

Snoop-Dogg-Aaron-Hernandez

The New England Patriots, Muscle Milk, and other powerful brands may be trying to distance themselves from Aaron Hernandez, but that does not mean the 23-year-old has no endorsers left. On Thursday, Snoop Dogg posted a photo of himself and Hernandez on Instagram and had a message for the former Patriots tight end.

“Keep ya head up!!” Snoop wrote. “We prayn 4 ya.”

As Deadspin pointed out, Snoop recycled the photo from four months ago when he and Hernandez were apparently hanging out together at a club. Hernandez’s wallet may have gotten thinner, but it looks like he has been able to retain at least one of his most high-profile fans.

Snoop Dogg throws out first pitch at White Sox game, Tebows (Video)

Rapper/actor/entertainer Snoop Dogg threw out the first pitch before the White Sox-Twins game on Thursday, and celebrated with style. Shortly after tossing a blazing heater a bit high, Snoop struck the Usain Bolt pose, and then he got down on one knee and “Tebowed.”

We knew the rapper was a football fan, but who knew he liked Tebow that much? Snoop is also proving to be one of the most versatile sports fans around. From hockey to soccer to basketball and baseball, the guy loves it all.

Hopefully his performance at The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Ind., later that night went as well as the pitch.

Here is an up-close look at Snoop in his White Sox outfit before the game:

Snoop Dogg Sports Alex Ovechkin Jersey

If ever a sports fan could be considered an equal opportunity bandwaggoner, it would be Snoop Dogg. This dude is all over the place, at every sports event, and willing to support any team. He’s tight with the Beckhams, tight with Matt Barnes, and he’s been seen wearing Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge, Harrison Barnes jerseys, and everything in between. Now CBS Sports shares with us that Snoop was wearing an Alex Ovechkin jersey at a recent concert in Baltimore:

Wearing the jersey didn’t bring the Caps any luck on Sunday — they lost to the Lightning in overtime. Normally I’d say that Snoop is showing some disrespect to Mario Lemieux and his Penguins, but like I said, the guy plays to the home crowds. Still, nothing will ever top this when it comes to rappers wearing jerseys. Nothing.

Matt Barnes, Snoop Dogg, and a Bong

Lakers forward Matt Barnes has been out nearly two months with a knee injury. On Thursday, he tweeted that he was hoping to be back on the court soon for the Lakers. He even shared a picture of himself with Snoop Dogg because he plans to wear Snoop’s Adidas shoes (which we previously profiled). Here’s the picture, and take notice of the tall, narrow glass item on the left:

I’m sure there’s a thousand good reasons why a water pipe is in the room, just like there was a good reason for the water pipe in Michael Phelps’ hands. I’m just saying it’s not the look you want, particularly coming from your own twitter account. Oh wait, I get it — Barnes’ account was hacked and the bong was photoshopped into the picture. Has to be it!

Adidas Releases Snoop Dogg Shoes for All-Star Weekend

A few weeks ago we introduced you to the tight-fitting jerseys Adidas was planning to debut this weekend at the All-Star Game. In addition to the jerseys, we shared the news that both Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard would have special shoes unveiled for the break (both athletes will appear at Foot Locker locations in the LA-area this weekend for their shoe releases — email us for details).

Keeping up with our All-Star weekend swag watch, Adidas has partnered with Snoop and released a limited edition shoe for the weekend called the adiPure Snoop Dogg. Some of the details on the gear: The adiPure Snoop Dogg is filled with Snoop’s personal signatures including a tongue design featuring a basketball hoop with sneakers dangling as a call-out to hoops and power lines from his 213 neighborhood, call-outs to his church league, Snoop-A-Loop, 21st Street and Long Beach, and the shoe’s purple outsole features the Snoop Dogg eyes logo and “Doggy” and “Style” on the left and right shoes. They retail for $100 which is a nice chunk of change, but won’t break you.

You can also follow along with Snoop as he takes you through a VIP look at All-Star Weekend. Here’s Snoop’s first video as he checks in:
