  • Unbelievable Manti Te’o girlfriend story has a local twist

    You would be hard-pressed to find a stranger story than the one that is unfolding (or more accurately, unraveling) around Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o.

  • Football writer falls asleep on the radio

    Sure, covering sports is a cool job that is coveted by a lot of people. But one thing that many fail to notice is that the world of sports never stops, and that can lead to a lot of long days and seriously cut into a reporter’s sleep schedule. Such is probably the case with […]
  • Bad Lip Reading comes to the NFL!

    If you look for time-wasters at work (you know who you are, after all, you’re reading the Haboob Blog), you’re probably familiar with the crazy folks over at Bad Lip Reading.

    Brent Musberger must feel a little randy on Monday nights. Last Monday, while calling Alabama’s BCS Championship Game romp over Notre Dame, the veteran announcer verbally drooled all over Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb, the reigning Miss Alabama. ESPN even found it necessary to issue an apology. This Monday, Musberger was in Lawrence, […]

  • James Harden with an unreal crossover on Jrue Holiday

    James Harden (ASU) and Jrue Holiday (UCLA) only met twice during their Pac-12 days, but Saturday the former Sun Devil gave fans a taste of what things might have been like had both stayed in school.

  • Hawks fan does the improbable with half-court shot

    Odds are you’ve been to a basketball game where one lucky fan gets the opportunity to hit a half-court shot during halftime.
