The return of athletes making asses of themselves on twitter.

By Kyle Bauer

It’s baaaaaaack! After a hiatus from this popular feature, we return today with Vikings Offensive Lineman Bryant McKinnie.

Last week, I read a feature on McKinnie, and his behavior during the festivities at the Superbowl. Apparently McKinnie is so out of control, he was originally elected to the pro-bowl but was axed because the league was unable to get in contact with him to let him know in time!

His antics are best captured in an article by ESPN honk Dan Le Batard in the Miami Herald

The article referenced a rather confusing relationship that the NFL star has garnered with washed up whore and ex-convict Lil Kim.

The following post will leave you even more confused.

bigmacvikingsProducers while I still have Lil Kim with me send me some hot tracks. We been going thru songs all day. We went thru some last nite as well.

So uh is Bryant McKinnie starting a rap career and Lil Kim is producing for him?
Is he producing for Lil Kim?
Is she humoring him?
Is he simply listening to music and completely misinterpreting what Lil Kim’s purpose for him there was?
Well I know for sure he is banging her and he will have hepatitis soon…..and not the ‘good’ kind either….

McKinnie is becoming a hero of mine. Not only is he rapping and/ or producing with Lil Kim but you’ll see if you scroll further through his page, he is also attempting a tennis match vs. Venus Williams. Bryant McKinnie is proving to not only be a superior offensive lineman and partyer but a renaissance man.

The only thing left for him to do is attend hockey games with Rex Ryan.

He’s wearing a Big Dogs shirt everybody. A BIG DOGS SHIRT!

New contest at the Real Deal on Sports

In October of 2008, Mike Parsons and Kyle Bauer set out on an all-day adventure with each other. Their goal was to visit as many cider mills as they could in one day and rank and review them for Mike’s old food blog, Mike Eats Detroit. This was a very successful excursion. Along the way Kyle and Mike visited six cider mills, spanning Oakland Township to Brighton in five hours and they also rescued a stray dog!

But the day culminated when they got this caricature drawing done at Yates Cider Mills. They both figured it would be good for a chuckle….

 

Little did they know that it was “National Coming Out Day” and it left many people wondering.

Your mission is to do your best photoshop/ms paint/fireworks or any photo editing software job to this drawing, or add a caption. It can be subtle, it can be blatant. The hack job can along the lines of any theme or joke, just as long you make it funny.
The winner will be chosen next Thursday at noon and the winning picture/caption will be posted on the website and you will also get a sweet prize. We are going to divulge the prize when we announce the winner but trust me, it will be legit!

Post your submissions at www.robingehood.com in the Real Deal on Sports thread. Or if youre not a member and don’t feel like signing up, email your entry me at kbauer83@yahoo.com

Good luck, I look forward to seeing them!

The Real Deal on Sports is on fire….LIKE A KNOXVILLE MATTRESS! OH!

By Kyle Bauer

It looks like today is going to be a record-breaking day at the Real Deal on Sports, due in part to the last couple posts on the Knoxville riots. We even elicited a response BigVolDaddy himself. So I’m very excited that we are getting some feedback and people are reading this cute little sports blog we have going.

Athletes making asses of themselves on twitter vol.4

By Kyle Bauer

I originally didn’t plan on doing one this week because of my illness but ohhhhhhh wow, this one could not be ignored.

Jesus Shuttlesworth aka Ray Allen, posted what may have been the greatest tweet of all time.

(This courtesy of Deadspin via Barstool Sports NSFW)

Suuuuuure, this could be a hacker or Jesus was sexting up his girl(s) and accidentally tweeted it. With these smart phones and how it easy it to post to facebook and twitter through them, I bet this happens often. It’s hilarious and Ray Allen got caught.

Hope he can lock it down for Big State University tomorrow.

Real Deal on Headlines

by Mike Parsons

What?! Why am I writing the Real Deal on Headlines? I’m just the board operator, I don’t even watch sports! Good question; since Kyle put together the best of while afflicted with the swine flu and a broken coccyx and Neal is spending the holidays with his wife and kids it falls on me this week. So um here it goes.

Ocho Cinco

For the most part I have no idea why people even bother to put athlete interviews on air, whether it be TV or radio. Is there anything more painfully boring than listening to some montone meat head recite the same tired script with such gems as “gotta give it 110%” “Take it one game at a time” “Our opponents are a quality team, anyone can beat anyone any given game” or describing mundane feats as “pretty special.” Chad Ocho Cinco’s quotes and wacky antics are a breath of fresh air. Nobody hates an attention whore more than me but for some reason I get the impression he’s not doing it for the attention. He does it because he is so much better than everyone else on the field he’s no longer challenged by the game of football and needs to find other ways to entertain himself.

Brian Kelly

Speaking of Cincinnati and rising stars on the tweetspace I still can’t help but to feel like this guy sold out. The realist in me fully expected Kelly to make the leap to the Irish;  but the child in me still believed in Christmas miracles and held onto the hopes he would stay at Cincy and build the program into a national powerhouse. How is anyone supposed to build a football program when all the coaches flee to some slap ass program with deep pockets the minute their contracts are up? For once I would love to see a coach tell UM or Notre Dame, thanks but no thanks, I like what we’ve started, good luck with your declining legacy. I’m not saying I hope Brian Kelly fails, but if he goes the way of the Willingham, I wouldn’t be disapointed.

Matt Millen

Sure it was a stupid move by the Lions to hire a guy to run the football team because he was good at color commentary and sure it was even stupider for them to hang onto him for the better part of a decade; but seriously people it’s just football, get over it.  Nobody likes to watch their home team lose game after game but the calls I heard after the 0-16 season on sports talk radio made me pity these people. My favorite was one slap dick who said he hopes the lions “take this season to their grave.” There are people out there who want Matt Millen dead or banned from the state of Michigan, that’s not even constitutional! Like I said people, it’s just football, go spend time with your family.

 Slap Ass Announcers

Like Kyle often says Detroit is very lucky when it comes to our announcers. On my way to work I was listening to a little Sports News Radio and instead of getting my daily fill of inspiration from David Stein the network was airing the “Sports Year in Review.” I heard more nationwide slaposity in the November segment than in a year of OSU vs UM Saturdays. The play by play team’s job is to describe the game, not to become the spectacle itself. Alot of broadcasters are employees of the team and they are paid to be slaps to a certain degree but exclaiming “THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN” or screaming “YES” repeatedly like Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally gets a bit tired and sounds contrived.

Merry Christmas everyone! Remember he is the reason for the season….unless your Jewish.

 

Athletes making asses of themselves on Twitter Vol. 2

By Kyle Bauer

This is a new series on the site, highlighting some of the best tweets by athletes who have used Twitter as a site to further feed their already massive egos and needlessly promote themselves.

Today is Chad Ochocinco. I am a huge fan of Ochocinco. Why? Because I love original characters. People who are not scared to be proud and be different. Seriously, how awesome is Ochocinco. He legally changes his name. Comes up with great celebrations and talks trash better than anyone in the league.

He should sen the league offices Pepto Bismol, instead he is sending them an apology letter….

OGOchoCinco-“Dear NFL League Office, @iamdiddy told me to be great, being great means having fun n celebrating. I’ve written a letter of apology to yall.”

Apparently Puff Daddy told him to do this, or just “be great” which Ochocinco interpreted as putting on the sombrero.

“@iamdiddy big bruh you told me to be great but the NFL keeps fining me!! I’m going to level 5 of greatness–going honeyglaze HAM now grrrr!”

There are many concepts about Ochocinco that intrigue me. Mainly his “levels of greatness.” He has ascended to level five, not sure what this entails. He is trying to get his own brand of condoms, but he should really detail his “levels of greatness” and release a book. I guess “honeyglaze HAM” holds high reverence in his heart. Also like how often he uses “grrr” thats cute.

Another concept of Ochocinco is the league wide pandemic of “H8N5” aka “Swag Flu.” Apparently Ochocinco has been reeling from it lately.

“WAMW face has been applied as I head to the stadium for the first practice of the week,H8N5 won’t allow me to think straight!Swagg Flu sucks”

This was just in the past day. Ochocinco is already in the Twitter Hall of Fame.
