Kobe Bryant was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday and the ABC host asked the basketball player about his future with the NBA because he only has a year left on his contract. The LA Laker had said in the past he couldn’t imagine retiring without another ring, so Kimmel wanted to know more. #24 answered him by saying “I have been very blessed to have been with a fantastic organization. I truly have. It’s coming to an end.” Then he added, “I’m happy it’s with a Lakers uniform.” So then Kimmel asked how soon and he said “It will be soon.” When the audience expressed their sadness over his decision, he explained that he has been playing for 20 years. Got to respect the 34 year old for wanting to go out on top, but I am sure many people don’t want him to go just yet.
I don’t know much about him (besides his love life), but I do he is a great player and the NBA will miss him! It will be interesting to see who will be the next playing legend after him now that Michael Jordan and Shaq have already retired and he will be joining them shortly on the permanent bench.
Sports is a serious business, but sometimes it can be really funny. Marv Albert was on The Late Show yesterday and he shared with David Letterman some of the best sports’ bloopers from last year! Sadly almost every sport was included but golf, so I guess that game is so boring they can’t even mess it up. Oh well maybe this year!
BTW where was something from the Olympics, I am sure they had a few good screw ups.
Tim Tebow held a press conference today to tell the world that he is excited to play for the NY Jets. You know how I know he is excited about it? He said the word 45 times during the 33 minute presser. That is once every :44 seconds. That is a lot of excitement.
BTW I wasn’t sure if you heard, but Tim Tebow is excited to play for the Jets.
When I saw this picture of Sammy Sosa I thought he looked more like Eddie Munster than the baseball player who was going for the home run record. And on that note, I think that explains why he came so close. Don’t you remember that episode where Herman Munster was playing baseball and kept scoring home runs? See it is in his genes to do so well? Right?
Did I hit one out of the park with this post???
BTW Bryan Fuller if you are looking for an Eddie Munster for your pilot, I think we found him.
Last year Shaq O’Neal made a bet with Jimmy Fallon that if the Late Night host beat him in a game of a virtual basketball, he would walk two blocks in a pink bikini with Jimmy’s name on his a$$ and vice versa if he won. Well the 7′ basketball player lost to Fallon and that little guy decided to collect on the bet yesterday in Indianapolis. I know that Shaq is a very tall guy, but I never realized he is also a very very very very big boy. I couldn’t take my eyes off the front of his bikini. Watch the video all the way through for a surprise ending I never saw coming.
Oh and did I mention how shiny Shaq’s legs are? I could see my reflection as I looked at crotch.
Yesterday Shaq was on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the ABC late night host was curious how the nearly 7′ former basketball player and the barely 5′ Flavor of Love winner make it work. He said that Hoopz is strong and can actually carry him on her back. Not believing him, Kimmel was like I have to see that. And like him I wanted to see how the little girl could lift that giant. Well she came out and proved that she can. So I guess if you are taking Shaq doggie style you need to build up your strength so you don’t go flying. I mean with one thrust, you are clear across the room. Well at least that is what I pictured, and c’mon you know you have done the same.
And is what she did easy? See what happens when Kimmel tries to the same. Let’s just say The Man Show guy was not manly enough to not be destroyed by the VH1 dating show winner.
So Greg Gruberg Tweeted the above first picture and said “Giving new meaning to the word FOOT-BALL! Ouch!” Well since I couldn’t identify what team the two players were playing for, I decided to look to see who they might be. Instead what I found is that wasn’t the only case this weekend of a non-punter becoming one as his kicked a ball that wasn’t made out of pig skin, but the human kind. Minnesota Vikings defensive end Brian Robison also kicked Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang in the groin, but it wasn’t really accidental. The defensive end took to Twitter to apologize for playing punter on TJ’s balls. Here is what he said, “My apologies to @tjlang70 , my team, my fans and the @nfl . I am not a dirty player and did not maliciously aim for the groin, just happened to be where it landed.” So watch the video below and see if you think he is a dirty player? And also that everything is funnier to Benny Hill music!!!
Finally if Foot-to-Ball is going to be like this, I think I am going to have to start watching it!!!
Shaquille O’Neal took to Twitter today to announce that after playing basketball professionally for 19 years he is going to retire. This is a sad day for basketball because one of NBA’s biggest players is leaving the game. And I am not referring to the fact that he is 7’1″, but the fact that the 39 year old has been such a positive force to the game.
Hopefully he will consider coaching because he needs to be part of the game in some form of the way.

Rampage Jackson defeated Matt Hamill at UFC 130 and after the bout he was interviewed by Karyn Bryant. Well I guess all that testosterone got to his pen!s because he hit on her like he hits on his opponents…hard. He was like a drunk guy at the bar that is so desperate to get laid. So desperate he Motorboarded at the end of the interview.
I have to admit it was kind of shocking to see an interviewee do that to an interviewer, but she handled it better than I would. In fact she took the Twitter to talk about the incident. She said, “Since every1′s asking: if it wasn’t already obv, I wasn’t offended by @Rampage4real at all. We were clowning around. I thought it was funny! Plus, he didn’t ACTUALLY motorboat me! Never even touched me… I do have a pretty good right hand in case. Knees aren’t bad either. LOL. Wow! So much reaction 2 the @Rampage4real intv! I make no claims 4 othr fem reporters, but I never felt threatened or scared. Just havin fun.” She definitely handled it better than I would’ve.
BTW she is unrecognizable from MTV VJ and Sound fx days, don’t you think?
Tom Brady can play football and he can marry one of the most powerful supermodels in the world, but that doesn’t mean he can score a touchdown when it comes to dancing. I am sure after seeing this video of him trying to shake his hips like that, that it will be the first time the quarterback has ever wished he was sacked. If it wasn’t for the fact that he is sleeping with Gisele Bundchen, he would be hiding his face in shame.
