The Hit Heard Around Canada...Aaron Rome KO's Nathan Horton

Boston fans are freaking out, spitting up their clam chowder and Sam Adams about this hit from game 3 of last night's Stanley Cup Final. At first glance it looked bad. On second glance it looked even worse. On third glance holy fuck he got crushed for no good reason! Vancouver's Aaron Rome has been suspended for the remaining four games in the series because of the hit and chances are the Bruins have seen the last of Nathan Horton. The hit might have flipped the series too. The Canucks came in with a 2-0 series lead. After the hit the Bruins went on to smoke the Canucks 8-1. Game 4 is in Boston. Expect even more emotion and passion. And beady little eyes. And hockey sticks. Eh!

Thanks To Shakira's Pole Dancing I Will Never Get This Song Out Of My Head

I don't have a fucking clue what she is saying but does it really matter? Shakira just jumped to the top of my charts with this "Rabiosa" video. The gyration of her hips could be classified as the 9th wonder of the world. Fucking A Shakira! Still bringing her A game for sure. I couldn't even imagine what it would be like with Shakira. I'll let Akon explain it...

#1 Pick Bryce Harper Blows Kiss To Pitcher After Hitting a Home Run

Big League Stew posted this video last night of Bryce Harper, the MLB 2010 1st pick phenom, hitting a massive home run for Class A Hagerstown and then doing a slow Barry Bonds-like trot before blowing a kiss to the opposing pitcher. I've heard constant rumors about teammates not favoring Bryce and I figured some of that could be out of jealousy and some of it could be because the kid is a dick. After watching this video I'm going to go with dick. Yeah. The next pitch Harper needs to see is right at his throat.

Actually I can't wait for this kid to make it to the majors. The game needs a good villain and Harper seems immature enough to take over the reigns. Plus he plays for the Nationals so it will be fun to see him come into the ATL and try to pull that shit at The Ted.

Khloe Kardashian Forces Black Out, Nipple Slip on Fox & Friends

You remember that first time you got so shit face the whole room started spinning and you just wanted it to stop? Well let's go back in time and see how it felt all over again. Just look at that thing, somehow related to Kim, flashing her nipple on national television. I'm pretty positive Khloe has no relation to Kim. She was adopted. Has to be. She's proof that Arnold and that Mexican cleaning lady tried to throw away the first of the litter in the dumpster.

Reggie Bush Refuses To Give Up The Heisman

Yesterday we found out that USC has been forced to vacate and hand over their 2004 BCS Title because of the sanctions ruled against them in large part due to Reggie Bush breaking the rules. Well today it appears that the Heisman Trophy that Bush won back in 2005 and was suppose to be forfeited back to the Heisman Trophy Trust nine months ago still hasn't made it to them according to Paul Pabst over at the Dan Patrick Show.

We reported in December that the Heisman Trust had yet to receive Bush’s trophy. According to a source at the Heisman Trust, as of Monday Reggie Bush has still not returned his Heisman Trophy, just short of nine months after the decision came down that he had to give up the honor.

After the Heisman Trophy Trust met in early September 2010, the Trust worked with Bush on an mutual decision to return the Heisman Trophy. On Sept. 14, Bush announced he would forfeit the trophy:

“One of the greatest honors of my life was winning the Heisman Trophy in 2005. For me, it was a dream come true.But I know that the Heisman is not mine alone. Far from it. I know that my victory was made possible by the discipline and hard work of my teammates, the steady guidance of my coaches, the inspiration of the fans, and the unconditional love of my family and friends. And I know that any young man fortunate enough to win the Heisman enters into a family of sorts. Each individual carries the legacy of the award and each one is entrusted with its good name. It is for these reasons that I have made the difficult decision to forfeit my title as Heisman winner of 2005.”

One day later, the Heisman Trust issued a statement stating their appreciation for Bush’s cooperation and declared there would be no winner for ‘05.

We called Bush’s agent for comment about the status of the trophy, but received no response. We did find out where Bush’s trophy was last September, just before the Heisman Trust asked for it back.

According to a person in management at the San Diego Hall of Champions, the Heisman Trophy was displayed there until just after the Heisman Trust’s decision to strip Bush of the trophy. “Reggie Bush’s dad came in right after and took it. That’s the last we saw of it.”

The source at the Heisman Trophy Trust told us that there was no specific agreement with Reggie Bush to return the trophy, but that it was “alluded to in Reggie’s statement and the whole world reasonably expected him to return it.”

The Heisman Trust source added that they had been in touch with Bush’s agent “more than once” about the status of returning the trophy. Also, Bush would not even have to pay for shipping. The Heisman Trust would send him a case for the Heisman Trophy, with shipping paid for.

Honestly I can't blame Bush for not handing it over yet. I've held one. Took it to a party in fact on the Notre Dame campus. Johnny Lattner's 1953 Heisman Trophy which he so kindly loaned to me for a night opened doors to places I would have never seen without it. Next to the Stanley Cup it's the most recognizable trophy in all of sports. So I can see why Bush would not want to give it up. His Heisman got him Kim Kardashian. It worked with Carmen Ortega. The Heisman is like walking around with the Maserati of labrador puppies on campus trying to pick up chicks. The Heisman seals the deal. So without the Heisman Bush is basically nothing. Sure he has some money but his NFL career has been remarkably bland.

The point is Reggie Bush shouldn't give up his memorabilia. Look at what happened to O.J. Simpson when he tried to get his shit back. You don't want to end up like O.J. who is forced to give the Heisman to other inmates at the Lovelock Correctional Center....or do you? Run Reggie Run!
