Only $1950 to Rent Tiki Barber

Cheap!

I want to be a nice person. I want to stop making fun of Tiki Barber, but how am I supposed to do that when he goes and rents himself out for the hilarious rate of $1950 for your company flag football game?

Danica Patrick Is No Longer A Rookie: She Just Races Like One

danica patrick swimsuit

Richmond International Speedway was the venue for Danica Patrick’s 50th Nationwide Series race two Fridays ago. That right — 50th. Not 5th. Or even 15th, but 50th. I point this out only because if you watched her race that night, you’d never know she had so many laps under her belt. Because despite the fact that Danica Patrick is no longer a rookie, she still races like one.

Before I go any further, I want to be clear that I am a proud American.

I vote.

I pay taxes.

I eat more fried food than Colonel Sanders.

Mayweather Clocks Ortiz, Fights With Elderly Commentator, Has No Manners Whatsoever

Floyd Mayweather angered almost all people with an opinion about boxing last night by clocking Victor Ortiz and winning with a fourth-round knockout that was widely considered a sucker punch.

Turns out, Ortiz had head-butted Mayweather, and felt badly about it. So he leaned in “for a hug” and an apology.

I don’t think I understand boxing. He couldn’t just be all “Hey, sorry” and kept bobbing and weaving? I’m familiar with the awkward, hug-like grappling that they tend to do while fighting, but hugging it out over a transgression during a fight just seems like it would ruin the “I’m going to beat your ass six ways from Sunday” vibe. Hm.

Anyway, while Ortiz apologized, Mayweather took the opportunity to haul off and punch him in the head, taking him down, and winning the fight.

“Cheap shot!” everyone on Twitter yelled who suddenly cared about boxing, while Mayweather busied himself insulting and appearing to physically intimidate Larry Merchant, 80, who has been a boxing commentator since Jimmy Carter was president.

Blahblahblah, you suck, Larry Merchant, Mayweather raged. He never gives him a fair shake. Doesn’t know anything about boxing, and need to be fired and etc. Larry kind of giggled and said the following:

“I wish I was 50 years younger and I would kick your ass.”

This is what Merchant looked like right before he delivered that golden line.

I guess after you sucker punch a guy who’s hugging you and apologizing for head-butting you, going off on an 80-year-old man is the next logical step.
