Team Kardashian/Jenner Buffoonery
Kim Kardashian and her half sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner had to be the least talented people in the building last night at the MTV Video Music Awards. Besides their “look at me” standing slow dance with each other during Sam Smith’s performance, these numb skulls distinguished themselves by texting through the Ferguson, Missouri moment of silence. Strong performance! Like these 3 have any clue about what has been going on in Ferguson, Missouri anyway.
MTV actually cut to a shot of these morons totally ignoring the tribute, which in and of itself is classic! Team Attention Seeker should have just hit the red carpet and then gone home. They could have spared themselves some embarrassment, though in this day and age we wouldn’t be surprised if the texting during the tribute was all a ploy to make more headlines.
2014 MTV Video Music Awards – There’s 2 Hours We’ll Never Get Back
The MTV Music Video Awards are utterly fucking confusing. Shouldn’t Google be putting on the Video Music Awards by now? After all, Youtube is about the only place you’ll catch a music video these days, MTV certainly doesn’t play them – during any waking hours. The Daily Mail pretty much summed up this debacle of an awards show when they posted this collage (above) of these weirds on the Red Carpet prior to the show.
Oh and Nicki Minaj had some sort of wardrobe malfunction. She held her dress together the whole time on this number. Again confusing, because isn’t her whole deal to let it all hang out?
I mean…is this a contest to see who can show the most Hoo-Ha? Kind of seems that way. J Lo basically left nothing to the imagination.
Jay-Z giving Beyonce some sort of “lifetime achievement” award to end this complete disaster of a night couldn’t have been anymore contrived!!! Congrats MTV – there’s 2 hours we’ll never get back.
ALS Ice Buckets of The Day
Any real fan of the Barclays Premier League knows that Eva Carneiro, who is one of Chelsea’s physios, is something special. She took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge over the weekend.
Solid performance by Jim Nantz of CBS Sports!
One of our favorite European Football WAGs, Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau, got wet and challenged new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.
In maybe the worst (and best) ALS Ice Bucket Challenge of all-time, The Golf Channel’s Win McMurray scooped up some 80+ degree water in the Bahamas and poured it over her head. If there was ice in the bucket, it probably melted before it came down upon Win, but we can’t be mad at the outfit McMurray chose for the event.

Let’s Review Anastasia Ashley’s European Vacation
What could be better than looking at a gorgeous world-class athlete in a number of gorgeous settings? Not much in our book. Pro-surfer Anastasia Ashley has been crushing a European vacation that has taken her from the United Kingdom, to the south of France and then over to Ibiza. Let’s review her voyage thus far from her Instagram photos.
It started in London accepting the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in Trafalgar Square.
She then did some work for Spike TV and Nissan at the Silverstone Race Track in England.
She made her way down the Atlantic coast of France to Biarritz and looked great on the beach.
A night paddle in Biarritz – who stays in that house up there?
She then continued south to San Sebastian, Spain.
No summer voyage to Spain is complete without a trip over to the island of Ibiza.
Anastasia captioned this one this morning: #NeverComingHome. We hope that isn’t the case – we love our California girl!
Sarah Silverman Breaks Out Vape Pen on TV at The Emmys
Busch League Sports’ favorite Sarah Silverman continues to dominate at life as she broke out her liquid marijuana live on the E! Network’s red carpet coverage of the Emmys on Monday night. E! Host Giuliana Rancic wanted to snoop through Sarah’s clutch and the comedienne was happy to oblige. Silverman proudly grabbed her Vape Pen and announced, “This is my pot!” – WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
ALS Ice Buckets of The Day
Matt Damon delivers a great toilet water ice bucket while explaining the movement he co-founded at water.org. He also nominated 3 heavy hitters at the end of the video. Take a look.
Leonardo DiCaprio took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge while doing some research up in Canada. He can better explain in the video. Word is that Leo donated $100,000 to ALS and continued his record as a top-notch philanthropist.
The Professor on Being a Padres Fan
Being a fan of San Diego professional sports teams might be the worst curse than can afflict a lover of sports. Let’s see: the town lost its NBA team, the San Diego Clippers, when the team moved to Los Angeles in 1984; the Chargers have been perennially mediocre, playing in only one Super Bowl (XXIX) out of the 47 that have been held, and they were blown out by the 49ers 49-26 in that one; and, the Padres, well, what can you say? They’re in a world by themselves. Is there anything less fulfilling than being a Padre fan? Being born and raised in San Diego, I guess I had little choice.

Federer’s Air Jordans
Roger Federer beat Marinko Matosevic 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 in his 1st-Round match at the U.S. Open on Tuesday night with his sporting hero Michael Jordan looking on in the stands. Roger also debuted the Air Jordan shoes he collaborated on with the greatest basketball player of all-time. Federer spoke about their relationship in a hilarious the on-court post match interview – WATCH IT HERE
ALS Ice Buckets of The Day
Here’s the one and only Homer Simpson getting into the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge act.
You’ve heard of Centerplate, wielder of luke-warm and soggy bun hot dogs at most major sporting venues. You’ve paid the $12 it takes to get a draft beer which comes inclusive with a cheesy “souvenir” cup made of plastic that likely causes cancer. And you do this because frankly, there is no other option. Centerplate is a $6B business that boasts a monopoly in the concessions space for most sporting arenas, collegiate athletic venues, convention centers, resorts, theatres, zoos and transportation hubs.
In our third installment of Optimum Anger, we focus our gaze on Desmond Hague, CEO of Centerplate. So, from the bottom of our hearts, Fuck You Desmond Hague and here’s why:

JOSH SHAW LIED ABOUT SAVING NEPHEW
This is easily one of the weirder stories we’ve seen in sports in 2014 and maybe the most mystifying in college football since the Manti Te’o catfish debacle a year and a half ago. As we expected, Josh Shaw did not sprain both his ankles saving his nephew last Saturday. Shaw has admitted to his coaches at USC that he lied about the incident. He has thus been suspended indefinitely from the USC Football team. “We are extremely disappointed in Josh,” head coach Steve Sarkisian said in a statement. “He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him when he told us of his injuries, nor did anything after our initial vetting of his story…I appreciate that Josh has now admitted that he lied and has apologized. Although this type of behavior is out of character for Josh, it is unacceptable. Honesty and integrity must be at the center of our program. I believe Josh will learn from this. I hope that he will not be defined by this incident, and that the Trojan Family will accept his apology and support him.”
Josh Shaw has retained an attorney who released his own statement in which he stated Shaw said he injured himself “in a fall.” Shaw also said, “I made up a story about this fall that was untrue…I was wrong not to tell the truth. I apologize to USC for this action on my part. My USC coaches, The USC Athletic Department, and especially coach Sarkisian have all been supportive of me during my college career and for that, I am very grateful.”
But the question remains, what really happened on Saturday night and how did Josh Shaw sustain sprains to both ankles? ESPNLA had some very interesting reporting late Wednesday after talking with an officer at the Los Angeles Police Department. We’ve also done our own investigation here at Busch League Sports and we invite you to compare both investigative reports by clicking the link below.
Noted Racist John Rocker On Survivor
CBS announced on Wednesday that noted racist, John Rocker, the former Major League Baseball relief pitcher would be participating in the 29th game of Survivor, which premiers on September 24th. This fall’s “Blood vs. Water” season will pit contestants “with and against their loved ones.” Rocker apparently brought along his 34-year-old model girlfriend, Julie McGee. We shall see if Rocker is any less of a dick than he was 15 years ago when he uttered the infamous quotes in his Sports Illustrated profile about taking the subway in New York City to games, “imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark looking like you’re riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing.” It was also widely documented that Rocker referred to a black teammate as a “fat monkey”. This should be interesting, you can bet we’ll be tuning in.
Beyoncé’s Dad – Whistle Blower
Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles has spilled the beans on yet another celebrity scam. He told The Roula And Ryan Show on Houston radio station 104.1 KRBE earlier this week that his daughter and Jay-Z deliberately proliferated divorce rumors in an effort to help drive ticket sales for their joint On The Run tour. Take a look at this act.
He even implied that the fight in the elevator between Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s sister Solange, on the night of the Met Gala in May, might have been staged as well. Apparently Solange has sold 3 times as many tracks since she tried to beat Jay-Z’s ass.
Clearly this gravy train wants another Destiny’s Child run so he can further line his pockets off his children, but if what he’s saying is true, how can this be good for Beyoncé’ and Hova? Jay-Z criticizing Eminem the other day now looks even more ridiculous. Nice act Jay, you gotta fake a divorce with your wife to get people to come to your show? Just another celebrity clown act, America can’t trust anything these attention hounds do anymore. We figured something was up after that bullshit ending to the MTV Music Video Awards, where the couple (who was supposedly ready to divorce) reunited on stage (with child) for some lifetime achievement award that ass-kissers MTV handed over. At this point we’re not sure who to believe, but if the old man is telling the truth, these anointed icons are no better than Nicki Minaj and her planned wardrobe malfunction.

Labor Day Weekend
A 3-day weekend is upon us! Time for everybody to go have some fun somewhere. To get you inspired, let’s have a look at Rihanna vacationing on a yacht that is cruising around the Mediterranean. We hope everyone thoroughly enjoys their end of summer voyages.
Johnny Football – Turn Down For What? – Heisman House
No chance Johnny Manziel is turning down for Roger Staubach and some old “blue hairs” from the Navy. The new Nissan Heisman House ad “Roomates” is easily the greatest Heisman House of ALL-TIME! MUST SEE VIDEO IS HERE
Under Armour’s Bellerina
If you’re a sports fan you’ve probably seen the Under Armour commercial with the Ballerina who’s been told “she’s too old to be considered for the Ballet Academy”. You’re probably wondering who the dancer with the amazing calf muscles is and how she got her own commercial with an athletic company. The Ballerina you’re wondering about is Misty Copeland and although she may have been too old to gain entry into the “Ballet Academy”, the 31-year-old wasn’t too old to become the American Ballet Theatre’s 3rd African-American female soloist.
Besides receiving a hefty contract from Under Armour, there are now reports that New Line Cinema may be making a movie based on Misty’s book, Life In Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina, which is a tale of Misty’s journey from humble beginnings to the top of the dancing world. It remains to be seen if Under Armour’s out-of-the-box bet on Misty will accomplish the company’s goal of bringing in more female business, but we wouldn’t bet against the girl who has defied the odds for most of her life. Let’s take a closer look at this beautiful dancer.
Burning Man – The BLS Live Blog

We’ve seen rain delay the start of the festival for many, an unfortunate death, plenty of fire and countless unbelievable works of art.
