Charles Barkley gave a really not a good answer on Family Feud
June 18th, 2018 under Sports figures, Steve Harvey. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday on Celebrity Family Feud, Steve Harvey asked, “If man’s zipper breaks in church, what might he use to cover it up?” NBA legend Charles Barkley said, “a child.” Not realizing how bad that answer is. Even after Kristen Ledlow said, “Not a good answer,” and Ernie Johnson walked over to the other team. I know that because, he then tried to explain as “I meant a baby.” Which made everything worse, so much worse.

As bad as that answer is, it was still on the board. Except they said, “person.” Still sounds bad, no matter how you put it! On a positive note, at least the bible was the #1 answer.


Watch a reporter mistake a baseball player for another one!

KTLA’s David Pingalore was covering the Colorado Rockies game yesterday and he was so excited to interview Carlos Gonzalez. Therefore, he pulled the baseball player aside and stared talking to him about their Orlando days.

There is only one problem, it was not Gonzalez. Instead, it was Noel Cuevas, who told him, “I’m not Carlos.” How did Pingalore handle the embarrassing moment? He checked Cuevas’ jersey to confirm the numbers were not the same and told his anchors, “Looks just like him…That is a live TV moment right there.”

That it is, do you think the players look alike? Below is Gonzalez and then Cuevas or is it the other way around? I will just have to ask Pingalore!

Is Brandi Chastain upset about her awful plaque?
May 23rd, 2018 under Jimmy Kimmel, Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]

On Monday night, Soccer player Brandi Chastain was awarded a plaque with her likeness on it by the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame to be displayed at the San Fransisco Airport. It is a huge honor for her, but there was just one little problem. It does not look anything like her. I think it looks like Harpo Marx, while others see it looking like Jimmy Carter or Gary Busey. Who do you think it looks like?

Jimmy Kimmel wanted to know who she thinks it resembles, so he asked her all about it on the show last night. She says she sees Mickey Rooney.

How did she feel when she saw it? She was so caught up in the moment that she did not even look at it until after she took several pictures with the plaque. Once she got a good glimpse of it, she was like what is going on here?

Did she flip her lid like most of us would do? She laughed it off and now BASHOF is working on a new one that will hopefully look more like her than everyone else but her. Something, this time around, she says will get approval on. Which is a good thing for her.

Is she upset with BASHOF? Not at all because they are a great organization that helps underprivileged kids. She made sure to point that out before their interview was over.

I wonder how Lucille Ball would have reacted if she saw that horrendous bronze statue in her likeness. She probably would have said a lot of words she could not have said on any of TV shows.


No split decision on this play!

Ronald Guzmán decided to become a baseball player, but after this move it looks like he made the wrong choice. The Texas Rangers first baseman could also double duty as a cheerleader with a split like that. Too bad the MLB does not have them cheering on the teams like football does.

BTW men did you feel his pain too?


Only 974 people showed up to a major league baseball game
April 12th, 2018 under Sports figures. [ Comments: 2 ]

When I was a kid I loved baseball. I loved going to games. I loved that energized feeling. Then they went on strike and this Yankees turned Mets fan who accepted the Marlins, said enough is enough.

Since then ticket prices have skyrocketed and people stopped going to see baseball games. Case in point on Tuesday, Rick Tarsitano says that 10,227 people paid to attend the White Sox game, but Tampa Bay Times’ Mark Topkin say only 974 people showed up to see his Rays play. Who to believe? I think we can all agree that Sporting News picture says it all because it screams empty stadium. Which is beyond sad.

I think the reason why ratings are down for all sporting events is because parents cannot afford to take their kids to games anymore. Therefore, kids do not have a reason to watch because there is nothing like the thrill of seeing a game in person. It is not the same watching it on TV. Thus, if they want the ratings to go up, then they need to lower the prices. Otherwise, they will all slowly fade away like a ball that goes over the wall.
