Randy “Macho Man” Savage died 2 years ago yesterday. He was of course the Slim Jim hawking WWF wrestler, but he also played minor league baseball from the time he was 18. Pretty impressive steesh for such a young man.
60 Minutes Sports had a very cool story on Professional Darts in England. According to the story, Phil “The Power” Taylor is the Michael Jordan of darts. All of his titles are too long to list, so go here if you have a lot of time on your hands (you do because you’re reading this already).
The above picture is a much younger Phil than he appears today, but you gotta love that quaffed hair/steesh/chest hair combo he was rocking back in the 80′s! Phil said he’s made millions of dollars over the years and his arm is insured for $15 million.
I’ve caught darts on tv a few times and it’s always exciting to hear the announcers and crowd going bananas, but the 60 Minutes piece made going to a darts match look more fun than any other sporting event I’ve ever attended.
Dennis Rodman, former basketball player, costar of Double Team, and all around goofball is now supposedly an FBI informant regarding North Korea. I guess it’s not that crazy since he is friends with Kim Jong-un. It is, however, a bit disconcerting that the FBI is counting on a former cast member of Celebrity Rehab to give them intelligence to help with national security.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted because
I’ve been traveling around watching the Astros or because I’ve been lazy and no one pays me to do this so why should I waste my time I’ve been busy at work. Above is a picture that Deadspin posted last week of an Astros fan with what can only be a very time-consuming mustache.
I’ve had this picture saved on my computer since January 31, 2013 and thought it would be there forever. It didn’t seem like being a former basketball player and current analyst for the Chicago Bulls was gonna be enough to get him on steeshes.com. But then he PUNCHED A COWORKER. I made a bingo!
According to ESPN, Derrick Rose is not 100% physically due to some burning in his hamstrings. Also according to ESPN, Derrick Rose is a middle-aged white man with a mustache. Just kidding guys. I think this is an ad. We’re just having fun over here. It’s just for fun.
Bill Moody, better known as Paul Bearer has passed away. No official word on a cause of death but we’ve all been assuming it would be a heart attack since we first saw him in the early 90′s. Rest in Peace Paul. You were a great entertainer and had amazing facial expressions.
National’s shortstop Ian Desmond entered spring training with a decent lip cover, but compared to Joba Chamberlain he looks like Burt Reynolds.
For some reason, more than once in my youth, my mom dressed me up as a hobo for Halloween. Probably because it was an easy, affordable costume. I would wear old dirty clothes and my mom would put vaseline and coffee grounds on my face for a beard. It appears that’s what’s happening here with New York Yankee pitcher Joba Chamberlain’s mustache. He really ought to get a paper towel and wipe it clean as to stop embarrassing himself and real men with real mustaches.
Happy 50th Birthday Charles Barkley! Sometimes I forget that Barkley was more than a funny, outspoken player. He is a member of the NBA Hall of Fame He was an NBA MVP, a gold medalist on the Dream Team, an 11 time All-Star and finished his career with over 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 4.000 assists. According to this picture, he also enjoyed going to see adult movies in the theater.
Daryl “Razor” Reaugh, or Daryl “I Lost My Razor” Reaugh as the insufferable Chris Berman might call him, is a retired goalie, and current color commentator for the Dallas Stars, The NHL on Versus and Hockey Night in Canada. I don’t know much about hockey ay, but this guys got a nice duster.
ESPN the Magazine has put together a music issue featuring athletes posing as famous album covers. Here is Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman as Michael Jackson (slightly modified) on the Thriller cover.
The issue also features NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson as Bob Dylan and track and field sprinter Allyson Felix as Beyoncé. You’ve got to give it to ESPN the Magazine for knowing their audience. They took athletes their readers might usually not care about and dressed them up as musicians they probably don’t care about.
Wade Boggs is a former MLB third baseman who played 18 years for Boston, New York and Tampa Bay. According to this picture he loves his family. I bet every night his family goes to bed thankful that they are not deer because Wade HATES DEER.
There are 8 dead deer in this picture alone. In addition, in the top right corner of the picture there is the head of what is either a bear or maybe even a dog. Still the most disturbing part of this picture has to be the jean shorts he’s allowed his son to wear while cameras are around.
This picture comes from @si_vault on twitter, which is a fun place for old sports pictures of all kinds.
UFC had a big match in Chicago on Saturday. If you went to the United Center or out to a bar to watch the fights, you and I spent our nights a little differently. I went to a bar that had I, Robot on its one TV and ate a Tomato Grinder that had a little too much arugula on it.
I may have missed the fights, but it was hard to miss the mustache on Clay Guida. Clay fought Hatsu Hioki and won in a split decision. If looks could kill, Guida would have won at the opening bell, or whatever they do to signify the beginning of the fight.
Last night, JaVale McGee of the Denver Nuggets threw himself an alley-oop off the backboard and then celebrated by giving himself a finger steesh. I’ve never heard of JaVale McGee, and frankly I think saying his name aloud makes me sound like I’m having a stroke, but I can become a fan if he does more stuff like that.
Here’s the video:
Paul MacLean is the head coach of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators. He has one of the most unique mustaches I’ve ever seen. Or so it appears until you notice the man behind him looks exactly the same as Paul. If that isn’t his brother, I’m convinced we all have a doppelgänger out there somewhere in this world. I just hope mine isn’t out there giving us a bad name by committing crimes or yelling at children.
Michael Phelps was on the sideline to watch the Ravens beat the Patriots last night. If I saw him on the street looking the way he did last night, there’s no way I would be able to recognize him. In fact, if I saw him anywhere dressed in anything other than a swim suit and swim cap, I probably wouldn’t take notice.
Phelps, who is a big fan of the Ravens, said that he drew inspiration from Ray Lewis to come back and train for the 2012 Olympic games. No word yet who Phelps murdered in order to start his comeback.
Bill Moody is better known to some of us as Paul Bearer or Percival Pringle III, a wrestler/manager in the WWF and other far less popular wrestling outlets. Moody has an actual a degree in mortuary science and is (or at least once was) certified as a funeral director and embalmer.
Paul Bearer first appeared in 1990 as a manager to The Undertaker. This is when the nightmares started for me. I haven’t watched wrestling in about 13 years but I think I could sketch this guys horrifying face since it’s burned into my brain. His face looks like a pile of dough that got some caterpillars and grapes stuck in it.
