Tony Allen says Stephen Curry ‘ain’t nothing I ain’t never seen before’

Samuel:

Then who else have you seen do what Curry does?

On Monday, Stephen Curry was crowned the 2015 NBA MVP. Even though the Warriors star received 100 out of 130 first-place votes, Grizzlies forward Tony Allen thinks Curry may not be doing anything extraordinary on the court.

From CSN Bay Area:

“He can shoot the ball pretty good and he got a nice handle. But it ain’t nothing I ain’t never seen before.”

However, Allen also said Curry deserved to win MVP.

“I don’t get a vote, but I acknowledge his MVP status. It’s well deserved, I wasn’t surprised.”

Curry led the Warriors to a league-best 67-15 record in the regular season. The team currently leads the Memphis Grizzlies, 1-0, in the Western Conference Semifinals.

Busch Stadium’s Walking Tacos take fans back to Little League

Samuel:

I used to eat these a lot during my years in high school. Now they are being served at big league parks? Cool!

Originally posted on Cardinals Insider:

A cousin of the Frito Pie you used to treat yourself to in Little League, Busch Stadium and St. Louis Cardinals Sportservice is rolling out the Walking Taco this season.

Served in a bag of Doritos or Fritos, the portability of this treat makes it fun and convenient to walk around the ballpark — a favorite for kids.

Build your tasty treat starting with your choice of chips, nacho beef, pulled pork or chicken carnitas. Top it with with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and salsa.

You can find this version of the Walking Taco in Sections 266, 432, 199. But if seafood tacos are more your style, you can visit the Island Grill location near Section 144 to build-your-own Shrimp Walking Taco.

To add to its convenience, another version of the Walking Taco, the Nacho Beef Walking Taco, will be vended at your seats.

#CardsInsider will introduce several new…

Oakland Athletics Pride Night 2015

Samuel:

A’s pitcher Sean Doolittle’s girlfriend Eireann Dolan is so based. What a great idea to buy tickets from fans who don’t want to go to Pride Night.

Originally posted on Thank You Based Ball:

As some of you know, the Oakland Athletics will be hosting their first LGBT Pride Night on June 17.  Hopefully this will be the first of many such A’s events. You can purchase tickets here.

Many people don’t know this about me, but I have two moms. My biological mom Kathy and her partner Elise (who grew up in the Bay Area) are both die-hard A’s fans as well as super gay. Like, they’re so gay for each other that they’ve fostered a long-term loving relationship likely no different from any heterosexual loving relationships you’ve seen or been a part of.

My moms are begrudgingly living in San Diego as transplants amongst all of the San Diego Padres fans. The team the Athletics will play (and beat) on Pride Night? The San Diego Padres. This night was made for them. In fact I’m starting to suspect that the Athletics focus-grouped this…

WWE champ Brock Lesnar announces that he’s not going back to UFC

WWE champ Brock Lesnar announces that he’s not going back to UFC

Samuel:

I am so happy! I have been a huge Brock Lesnar fan since he debuted in the WWE over a decade ago. And I will be at WrestleMania this weekend knowing that this will not be the last time I see him in the ring. Amazing!!!

WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is scheduled to face Roman Reigns in the main event at WrestleMania Sunday, but with his WWE contract running out after the biggest pay-per-view of the year, many fans wondered if Lesnar would be leaving the sport of professional wrestling for another stint in UFC.

With five days left until WrestleMania 31, Lesnar dropped a bomb during an interview with Michele Beadle on SportsCenter — Lesnar is not only done with UFC for good, he just re-signed with WWE after Vince McMahon made an offer he “couldn’t refuse.”

“It was a very hard decision for me. I’m at a stage in my career where I want to… it was just hard. And it’s hard to talk about it. The fighter inside of me wants to compete. The father, the husband — you know I’m an older caveman now, so I…

Derek Jeter Fan Goes All In With RE2PECT Tattoo and Quote

Samuel:

The #RE2PECT hashtag was a product of Nike. How people are getting that tattooed on their body is still a mystery to me. Maybe I just don’t understand how people would get a tattoo of something like this. This one right here is leaving me speechless.

Originally posted on Sports Gossip, Sexy WAGs, NFL and Hot Cheerleaders: BustedCoverage:

We’re about a month away from the start of the 2015 MLB season and there are still people out there getting Derek Jeter “RE2PECT” tattoos. A shirt I can understand, but inking up to something so unoriginal like a Nike ad is just ridiculous, in my opinion. If you’re going to do it, at least do yourself a favor and make sure the public can’t see the abomination on your calf or arm.

But as you can see from the photo above, Jeter fans are going to do what they “need” to do for The Captain. In this case, the fan also needed a Babe Ruth quote to cap off her Yankees human billboard investment:

Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.

A+ work on the brainwashing campaign, Nike.

Giancarlo Stanton’s new helmet has a pretty cool facemask

Giancarlo Stanton’s new helmet has a pretty cool facemask

Samuel:

I like the design. It’s personal but not over the top. This is a different kind of look the facemasks we’ve seen before and I think it works well with the overall aesthetics.

(USA TODAY Sports) (USA TODAY Sports)

Giancarlo Stanton will step into a batter’s box for the first time Thursday since taking an 88-MPH pitch from Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers directly to the face in September.

The pitch resulted in a gruesome laceration, multiple fractures, and dental damage.

It also had many calling for better helmet protection, something Stanton’s new helmet has.

The custom-made helmet made by Schutt Sports has a faceguard and a nifty letter “G” woven into its frame. According to the Miami Herald, the faceguard has “a carbon steel frame that can withstand 100-mph pitches.”

via the Miami Herald:

Stanton wanted something that would not only protect the side of his face, but a helmet that would allow him open sight lines and freedom of movement.

The one-of-a-kind…

Gronk, Marshawn & Conan React To Mortal Kombat Decapitation

Samuel:

Thank you, Conan, for giving us this goodness.

Originally posted on Sports Gossip, Sexy WAGs, NFL and Hot Cheerleaders: BustedCoverage:

gronk-conan-marshawn

So Conan O’Brien pulled off the biggest coup of Super Bowl week by getting Gronk and Marshawn Lynch to play Mortal Kombat (of course I’m expecting all involved were paid decent cash for the bit) and put on a great show. The bit didn’t disappoint.

I’ll break it down for those of you who are at work and can’t play videos:

• Gronk and Marshawn play the game

• Bodies are decapitated

• Everyone reacts in horror to bodies being ripped apart

• Marshawn grabs his nuts

• Conan grabs his nuts

• Bleeped profanity

• Gronk tells Conan to use a trophy for oral

This really has it all. The folks at Mortal Kombat couldn’t ask for anything more out of the guys for the show they put on. Beast was Beast. It took Gronk a little bit to get warmed up because Beast was overpowering. And Conan lobbed softballs to…
