If you know me well, you know that these are my two favorite movies, and nothing else comes very close (with all due respect to Office Space): Dumb and Dumber, and Anchorman. And it's been rumored for years that Will Ferrell and the gang were hoping to make a sequel to Anchorman.

Well, Will Ferrell made a surprise appearance on Conan last night, in-character as Ron Burgundy. During this appearance, he made the announcement that an Anchorman sequel is indeed, finally, in the works.

Check it out:


Neat-o, gang. That is GOOD NEWS!

Seriously, I can't wait for this.

Imagine Mike, er, Giancarlo Stanton launches a home run at Marlins Park, and this thing immediately is activated over the left-center field wall:


I still can't believe this sculpture will really be in a major league ballpark. I don't even think Willy Wonka would let it in his chocolate factory.

In this extra footage from the baseball documentary 'Playing for Peanuts', the South Georgia Peanuts' pitching coach Buddy York seems angry at his pitching staff:


"Otherwise, get out there, fuckin' work on your damn slide step."

Maybe my favorite comment to end a rant ever.

Yesterday, NFL star Warren Sapp accused former New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey (currently a member of the Carolina Panthers) of being the snitch in the Saints' Bountygate scandal.

Shockey vehemently denied the accusations, and today, even tweeted a screencap of a text message he just had with Sean Payton, the Saints' head coach who was suspended for the entire 2012 season for his involvement in Bountygate:


Wow. I'm sure Payton just loves Shockey tweeting their text convos.

Sunday in Los Angeles, Larry David got stuck in a parking garage, and it totally looked like a scene straight out of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

David got out of his car (which just like in the show, is a Toyota Prius), and asked for help on how to open the gate from people in the cars waiting behind him.

Here is hilarious footage, via TMZ:


Prettyyyyyyyy, prettyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, pretty good.

Former NFL defensive tackle Kris Jenkins, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, played for the New York Jets from 2008-2010, before retiring from the league in July of 2011. Currently, he serves as a Jets television analyst on New York's SNY.


Well today, the Jets of course acquired quarterback Tim Tebow (ever heard of him?) from the Denver Broncos, and Jenkins had an interesting reaction to the move:

The SNY Jets postgame show should make for great entertainment if Tebow plays in any games this season.

UPDATE: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that a "hangup in language in Tim Tebow's contract" could nullify the trade. Kris Jenkins rejoices.

As you surely know by now, it was announced today that Peyton Manning is choosing to sign with the Denver Broncos.

Well, during a live broadcast today of Phoenix KTVK's Good Morning Arizona, news anchor Kaley O'Kelley was informed of Peyton's decision, and responded with an F-bomb, as she wanted the quarterback to join her beloved Arizona Cardinals.

Here's video:


I take it that Kaley missed two days ago when the Cardinals announced that they are out of the Peyton sweepstakes.

Also, I can only assume that Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb is not in a hurry to make any appearances on Good Morning Arizona.

So many things to pay attention to in this picture that locating a hover hand is like a "Where's Waldo?" illustration. Obviously you could immediately get lost in Kate Upton's eyes. You could even get lost in James Harden's wacky beard. Thankfully, a Reddit user was able to point out the hover hand from the NBA's leading scorer for us.

And about the hover hand, is this a case of Durant being shy with a superbabe, or does he realize something that I pointed out on Twitter last night: Kate Upton is still just 19. Yeah, that's legal, and usually in my book that reads like an MLB Gameday graphic: "In play: Runs". But still, 19 is young. Very young. Just out of high school young. Then again, Durant is just 23 himself.

So, who knows? All I know is that I feel old as shit right now.

I don't think so Caroline. Not on my watch. Prank Serena Williams six times a week and twice on Sunday, but nobody pranks the Thigh Goddess. I'm pretty sure a higher being feels the same way and caused your prank fail. Hopefully a lesson learned.

But yeah, you're hot too.

Connecticut-Syracuse in the Big East Tournament? Always outstanding. This time around, the game was close throughout, and #2 Syracuse came out the winner by the score of 58-55.

But, UConn did have this ridiculous putback dunk from 6'11", 270-pound freshman Andre Drummond:



Drummond is currently projected by NBADraft.Net to be the #2 player selected in the upcoming NBA draft, and he's had plenty of amazing dunks over the season.

It's going to be much tougher for Drummond to convert such dunks at the NBA level though, because teams are going to foul the hell out of him unless he greatly improves his free throw shooting. He's currently a 29.5 % free throw shooter. You read that correctly.

Jennifer Love Hewitt. Remember her? Only one of the biggest babes of the 90s. She made the terrible 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' movies watchable as her boobs bounced around as she ran away from that fisherman dickhead. Or maybe you remember her from the series 'Party of Five'. Anyway, Jennifer Love is apparently featured in the current issue of Maxim, and is still looking as sexalicious as her 90s days.

Although perhaps the Lakers should be even more embarrassed, because they lost that game.

GIF: Yu Darvish Strikes Out Carlos Quentin

Posted by Matt Clapp | 3/07/2012 03:17:00 PM

25-year-old Japanese phenom Yu Darvish made his MLB (Spring Training) debut today for the Texas Rangers. The 6'5" right-hander was very impressive, tossing two scoreless innings against the San Diego Padres.

Here's more on Darvish's debut, from USA Today's terrific baseball writer, Bob Nightengale:
Darvish struck out three batters in two shutout innings, allowing two hits - doubles by veteran second baseman Orlando Hudson and right fielder Will Venable. Darvish, pitching out of the stretch the entire time, threw 26 of his 36 pitches for strikes. He mixed in an array of fastballs, sliders and changeups, keeping the Padres off-balance. 
Certainly, Darvish did not show the least sign of nervousness, even with 200 fans surrounding the bullpen to simply watch his warm-up pitches. He may be considered Japan's last great hope for pitching success in the Major Leagues, but he treated it just like any other pitcher making his spring debut.
Darvish induced nine swings and misses and threw six different pitches with a fastball clocked at 91 to 95 mph.
Probably Darvish's most impressive pitch of the game came on a slider to the Padres' Carlos Quentin (who spent the last four years with the White Sox, with two All-Star appearances) which ended Darvish's first inning of MLB (again, Spring Training) work.

Here's a GIF of the strikeout pitch, via Baseball Time In Arlington:

DIRTY.

Per many users on Reddit, this was the mugshot on the ESPN.Com page for the Calgary Flames' Curtis Glencross earlier today:


That is not Curtis Glencross, or even a hockey player for that matter. That is baseball player Manny Ramirez. They are nothing alike. At all.

The fun is over though, as the page now features a picture of the real Curtis Glencross. Carry on.

In addition to a crazy ass home run tower, Marlins Park will feature an aquarium that contains real, live fish, right behind home plate.

In fact, the aquarium has already been installed, with the fish already swimming in there:


If you're wondering, the glass is shatterproof, but we'll see if that's the case when Josh Johnson tosses a 100 mph wild pitch.
