What’s better than championship sports anthems? Championship sports anthems recorded in round 2 of the playoffs! Meet ‘Pesky Back,’ the Ottawa Senators-themed parody of Justin Timberlake’s ‘Sexy Back.’ Nothing says “we’re the team for this year” quite like a song from 2006!
Here is another ditty… The folks at CTV Morning Live Ottawa do another video to help cheer on the Ottawa Senators as they take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in Round Two of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs!
We shared a lot of horrifyingly-bad Christmas updates this year, but none quite as epic as Michael “The Menace” Johnson’s “special holiday song” for his UFC 155 opponent, Myles Jury. If you haven’t figured it out from the headline and that weird picture, it’s FIST IN A BOX, a parody of Saturday Night Live’s ‘Dick In A Box’ Digital Short that manages to somehow be even more about dicks.
I don’t want to spoil it for you, but it’s even worse than you’re imagining. Video is below.
Because no Bill Murray-related sports moment should go uncovered by this website, here’s a recap of The Murricane’s appearance in the 2012 Ryder Cup Captains & Celebrity Scramble at Medinah Country Golf Club on Tuesday. It began with him teaming up with golfer Tom Lehman and The Guy With The Hair from N*Sync, and ended with him leading the crowd in AMERICA chants and trying to pocket the cup.
Murray teamed up with Justin Timberlake, Dick Stockton and Tom Lehman to finish tied for second at 6-under par. The winning team consisted of Michael Phelps, George Lopez, Hal Sutton and Lanny Wadkins, who finished at 9-under.
I’m not happy knowing George Lopez can be better at something than Bill Murray, but it is what it is.
Video of Bill’s shenanigans is after the jump, followed by a clip of some of the other sports celebrities in attendance, including Phelps, Scottie Pippen and William ‘The Refrigerator’ Perry. And George Lopez.

The 82nd Major League Baseball All-Star Game took place at Chase Field in Phoenix last night, and it appears that the American League’s era of dominance has come to an end. The National League All-Stars won the game 5-1, marking their second consecutive win over the AL losers, who had won the previous 60 All-Star Games or something like that. The NL, of course, now possesses home-field advantage for the World Series, because baseball is run by nincompoops who think this is a good idea. Seriously, how has this not been passed off as a bad joke yet?
Prince Fielder hit a 3-run home run in the bottom of the 4th inning off Texas Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson to give the NL the only offense it would need, after Boston’s Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo shot in the top of the inning. L.A.’s Andre Ethier and San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval each added a RBI for the NL to cushion the victory. And all the while, Joe Buck and Tim McCarver shared stories about players that none of us could bear listening to. But in case you skipped the game or you just chose not to watch it, I’ve put together this hasty retelling of last night’s action (not entirely in order, mind you). For full appreciation, pull a sheet over your head, fart, inhale it as deep as you can, and then talk like Buck for the next few minutes.
If you’ve ever been at a Justin Timberlake move and thought to yourself “Man, I wonder how this could possibly get more douchy” then you’re in luck. Alex Rodriguez has been cast alongside Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in their movie Friends with Benefits. Once Mila’s done with amateur hour, I have a couple roles for her, myself. Specifically roles as a nurse, police office, and pirate, but I think she has the range to handle anything I throw her way. I mean, she was on That 70′s Show.
Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis are starring in the upcoming movie “Friends With Benefits,” and someone just got added to the cast…drum roll please…none other than the Lightning Rod…Alex Rodriguez..The Yankees slugger will make his big-screen debut in the upcoming comedy..Rounding out the cast is Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Andy Samberg..Filming is scheduled to begin this month in and around New York. The production will work around A-Rod’s Yankees schedule..mostly shooting his scenes on his off days..According to my sources, A-Rod will portray himself..and not actually play a character..which is unfortunate because A-Rod is one damn good actor.. -TO –TerezOwens
“Rounding out the cast is Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Andy Samberg.” I wish I hallucinated myself reading that. This sounds like the worst movie of all time. I’m willing to bet that A-Rod’s acting has a strong start at the beginning of the movie, but beings to fall off after the emotional crux. I’d still rather have my eyes pried open and have a gallon of lemon juice dropped on them while watching Sex and the City 2 on repeat than this garbage. Thank goodness they at least hired some eye candy. Prepare to have a cornea cavity after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
