So we found out earlier that Derek Jeter uses an alias to order Starbucks. Well Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes decided to stop by a Starbucks on Friday and have a little fun with Jeter. If you didn’t know, Jeter’s middle name is Sanderson. This new trend could sweep the country. Ordering a beverage under an alias can be known as “Jetering”.
According to USA Today, the interaction between Young and Judge Andre Manssourian went like this:
Judge: “Good morning, sir.”
Young: No reply.
Judge: “Can you hear me?”
Young: No reply.
Judge: “Are you Titus Demetrius Young?”
Young: No reply.
Now I’m no lawyer, but I don’t see how this can help Titus Young. At this point Titus Young is morphing into the Amanda Bynes of the NFL. A train wreck unraveling in front of our eyes.
Jay-Z is now changing the game in the sports agency world. First other agents tried to shut him down by saying he didn’t have the degree to be an agent. Now agents are complaining about Jay-Z’s relationship with CAA and the NFL is looking into it.
The NFLPA has asked CAA Sports about its relationship with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports and how it relates to the representation of NFL players, said George Atallah, NFLPA assistant executive director for external affairs.
Atallah, in a telephone interview today, addressed recent speculation surrounding Roc Nation Sports, including its hiring of an NFLPA-certified agent and its signing of New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith, as well as other issues that have been raised in the media.
“Of course we are aware of the new relationship between Roc Nation and CAA,” Atallah said. The NFLPA is also aware, he said, of Roc Nation Sports hiring Kim Miale, an NFLPA-certified agent who will be representing Smith in contract talks.
“We will be reaching out to all of the parties involved to get a better understanding of the nature of those relationships,” Atallah said.
Jay-Z had to see this coming, I predict it will be a small speed bump. Jay-Z is slowly taking over the world. From music, to clothes to now sports, Jay-Z has a hand in it.
People in cities across North America are currently suffering from playoff fever with the NHL and NBA playoffs well underway. One third grader from Chicago, who is a die-hard Blackhawks fan, may have it worse than others.
Maggie C decided to have a little fun during her math test and write down “Hossa” as the answer to the math problem 9×9. I hope she wrote down “Kane” for the problem 11×8. And how about the teacher writing “what is this?” I bet if she wrote “Cutler” for 3×2 he wouldn’t write “what is this?”
Former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis made more from the university in the 2011 season than Brian Kelly, the man who was the actual coach at the time according to ESPN.com.
Weis, now the coach at Kansas, received a buyout payment of $2.5 million from Notre Dame as part of the agreement for his 2009 firing, according to the Chicago Tribune, which used federal tax documents as its source.
Kelly only received $1.08 million from the school from July 2011 to June 2012, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t earn anything else.
The return notes that Kelly “is permitted to receive compensation from external sources with prior written approval from the University” and any such income is not reported on the return.
So, if you’re keeping score at home, Charlie Weis, the same guy who coached Kansas to a 1-11 season was paid more than Brian Kelly, the guy who went to a National Championship.
Skip to 9:45.
So, it turns out these two really don’t like each other. The knock on Erin Andrews for the longest time is that she’s just a pretty face who gets fed questions into her ear. I love how Michelle Beadle calls her out on this. If there was ever any debate on who was better between these two, this ending it.
This news is a bit of a surprise to me because Tim Duncan’s personal life is kept very quiet.
According to the San Antonio Express-News, a divorce case filed in San Antonio two months ago bears only the initials of the husband and wife, but seems to suggest that it’s the Spurs star and his wife.
There are no names used in the case, but the initials A.S.D. vs. T.T.D. Tim Duncan’s middle name is Theodore. A request was reportedly filed last week asking that a legal discovery be postponed until after the Spurs last playoff game.
The newspaper also verified paperwork that says the couple married around July 21, 2001. Tim and Amy Duncan were married in July of 2001.
Documents also says they have two children together, and those birthday date coincide with the dates listed on the divorce filing.
Again this is all very surprising. I give Tim Duncan a lot of credit for keeping his personal life so personal. Hopefully this doesn’t impact his performance.
What player would you like to start a franchise with? asked Fox Sports Kansas City earlier tonight. Well, I … um … what, now?
I guess Matt Jones?

You have to admit, that’s one hell of a tattoo. I’m thinking he could have tattooed a lot worse on his leg than a guy that was an armed robber, kidnapper and murderer.
Meet Corey Dajohn Moody. Moody worked at the Preserve at Mill Creek apartment complex where Julio Jones and former Falcons Christopher Owens lived.
According to police courtesy of AJC.com Moody stole two rent checks one for $1500 from Jones and one for 1,243.60 from Owens. They were old rent checks that Moody tried to deposit a second time, but this time in his account. Moody unsuccessfully tried to deposit Jones’ check using a Chase Bank Smartphone app, but was able to deposit Owens’ check by changing the check number from 217 to 1217 at a local Chase branch.
Both attempts were flagged immediately and a warrant was issued for Moody on two counts of theft by receiving stolen property.
He is still on the run.
I wonder how often this happens. I’m guessing it happens more than we think. Think about how many athletes live in apartments, then think about how many shady people are out there that would do something like this.
