What Is “Header Face”?

If you were watching the World Cup this weekend, then you definitely saw your fair share of “header face.” I know it sounds oh-so-dirty, but really it’s just what happens to one’s face when a soccer ball makes contact with one’s head. I mean, how can you not a have a ridiculous expression under such circumstances? Like this guy. He looks so stupid that even his competitor can’t stop laughing. After the jump, some pics of really hilarious “header face.” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Abby Sunderland, Missing Solo Sailor Girl, Actually Not Missing After All

Disaster averted! Sailor Abby Sunderland, 16, who is attempting to set a world record by sailing around the world solo, has been found by aerial searchers in the Indian Ocean. Yesterday, while sailing east of Madagascar, Sunderland had told her father she was experiencing 35-knot winds and 25-foot waves. An hour later, she set off two of her emergency rescue beacons, one on her life vest and one on her lifeboat. Fortunately, the third emergency beacon, which automatically goes off when her vessel is under 15 feet of sea water, had not gone off. Keep reading »

Sports Are Getting Girly Today

Who said sports can’t be fun? Last night at game three of the NBA finals, Boston Celtics fans tried to distract Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom by holding up masks of his wife Khloe Kardashian’s face to distract him. Ha! Too bad that little stunt didn’t work. The Lakers beat the Celtics anyway. I also got a chuckle when I heard that AshleyMadison.com, the dating site for infidels, made a $25 million offer for the naming rights for the Meadowlands Stadium, the new home for the New York Giants and New York Jets. What would they call it? The Mistresslands? Lots of Sports Stars Have Affairs Stadium? An even more pressing question: where in the heck did they get $25 million? All this ridiculousness almost makes me want to follow sports. Let me think about it. OK, not really. [NY Daily News, TMZ] Keep reading »

Why Is Hockey Player Chris Pronger Wearing A Skirt?

This was how Philadelphia Flyers hockey player Chris Pronger appeared in a poster from Tuesday’s print issue of The Chicago Tribune. He was Photoshopped to wear a woman’s skirt (or figure skating outfit?), with the caption “Chrissy Pronger: Looks like Tarzan, skates like Jane.”

I guess comparing a manly-man hockey dude to a woman is, like, the worst insult there is. It’s not like there are women’s hockey teams or anything! Nooooo. [Chicago Tribune] Keep reading »

Tennis Player Simona Halep’s Breast Reduction Deflates Her Fan Base

This is all kinds of creepy: fans of 18-year-old Romanian tennis player Simona Halep petitioned the player (on Facebook and elsewhere) against getting a breast reduction when she announced her big boobs hurt her and hindered her game. Why make such an announcement in the first place? Who knows. But in a message to her fans — for some reason she felt the need to explain this further — Halep said, “It’s the weight that troubles me. My ability to react quickly [is compromised and] my breasts make me uncomfortable when I play. I don’t like them in my everyday life, either. I would have gone for surgery even if I hadn’t been a sportswoman.” A breast reduction surgery last summer has since reduced Halep’s 34DD cup size to a 34C, which hopefully her fans can deal with. Really, people: she’s a teen tennis star who made it all the way to the French Open last weekend, not a Maxim pin-up. That’s Anna Kournikova you’re thinking of. [Daily Mail UK]

Venus Williams’ French Open Outfit: Too Sexy Or Just Ugly?

There’s no denying Venus Williams is a talented tennis player, but it wasn’t her swing that elicited whispers and whistles from the French Open audience over the weekend. Venus caused quite a stir wearing a black and red corset-like mini dress on the court. The lacy getup, which she designed herself, gives the illusion of being sheer. The ruffled skirt flips and bounces with Venus’ every movement, exposing her flesh-colored boy shorts. She said the look was “about illusion,” which is her “motif this year.”

Today’s Lady News: Kansas City Chiefs Player Says The Team “Imported” Women To Hotel Rooms

  • In an upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe reveals a woman was stashed in every hotel room at a game in San Diego in 2007. “Some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room,” Bowe said. “The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it ‘importing.’” Ick! Fellow player Jimmy Wilkinson has called Bowe’s comments “not true” and says he is making his married teammates look bad. [Kansas City Star]
  • A so-called “crisis pregnancy center” in Silver Springs, Maryland, is suing Montgomery County, Maryland, over a new law that would require it to post a disclaimer clarifying that it does not provide abortions, offer referrals to abortion clinics, and does not have a licensed medical professional on staff. Politicians enacted the law based on the belief that “crisis pregnancy centers” — which often pop up near legitimate abortion clinics — were intentionally misleading women to dissuade them from ending a pregnancy. The lawsuit filed on Wednesday by Centro Tepeyac Women’s Center, however, says the new law restricts their freedom of speech. [Washington Post]

Rival Olympic Ice Dancers Skate Their Way Into Each Other’s Hearts

Olympic ice dancers Charlie White, 22, and Tanith Belbin, 25, were known to the world as rivals in Vancouver this past winter, but behind the scenes they were having a torrid love affair. Collective “aaahhhh,” please. White’s skating partner. Meryl Davis. and Belbin’s partner. Benjamin Agosto. knew about the secret relationship going into the Winter Olympics. Even though White and Belbin have known each other for years, they began to fall in love last June, but they chose to keep it on the DL during the season, communicating mostly via text and Facebook. They didn’t want the relationship to distract them from skating their best in Vancouver. “We like each other a lot, and the competing part hasn’t ever factored into our relationship or how we work with our respective partners,” Belbin said.
