Jordan Shipley and Other Longhorns Serenade Colt McCoy With Song About Colt McCoy At His Wedding

Posted By on Wed, Jul 21, 2010 at 10:38 AM

Browns fans might want to watch quarterback Colt McCoy being serenaded at his wedding with a song entitled, "I Want to Be Just Like Colt McCoy." I hear Doug Pederson had something similar at his wedding.

They also throw in a Tim Tebow reference which brings down the house.

Clevelanders, this is your quarterback of the future.

Matt Underwood Calls a She a He

Via Deadspin, here's Matt Underwood very clearly misidentifying this admittedly androgynous looking fan as a man last night in Minnesota.

The 'Witness' Car is For Sale on Craigslist, $23,000 and It's Yours

Posted By on Fri, Jul 16, 2010 at 3:47 PM

Everyone is burning their LeBron James gear, and those that aren't burning it are trying to unload it. Take Austin Briggs — a.k.a. A Gully — the Kent rapper/marketer/mediawhore whose Witness car became quite the sensation during the last two year.

First it was black, then it was white, then it was for pleasedontleave23.com complete with a petition and fan/celebrity signatures, and now it could be yours.

Briggs has the car up on Craigslist. Here's part of the description, all the glorious misspellings included:

Along with the car, I plan to put together a portfolio of videos and publications that tell the story of this unprecedented grass routes effort. The sale of the Witness Mobile is also likely to get media attention. ESPN is already inquiring about the future plans for the car. The Vehicle itself is a 1987 Cutlass Supreme. It has 24" rock starr rims, Vertical doors, duel exhaust, checkered pillow seats, full sized automatic sunroof, LED MVP signs in the doors and a great sound system. The hood and fenders are covered with thousands of signatures from fans, and the trunk has signatures from various Sports figures and Cleveland legends including:

Josh Cribbs, Bernie Kosar, Eddie George, Alex Macc, Tedd Ginn, Troy Smith, Austin Carr, Camby Russel, Buster Douglass, Ed Reed, Terrell Prior, Rob Simms, Mike Kudla, Otto Orf, Edgar Jones, Brad Sellers, Richard Quinn, Mario Manningham, Barry Cofield, Brandon Jacobs, Terrell Prior, Beanie Wells, Trevor Crowe

I'd totally offer $23,000 but that Trevor Crowe autograph is a deal breaker, even if Terrell Prior did sign the car too.

Your LeBron James Pendant eBay Roundup

Posted By on Fri, Jul 16, 2010 at 1:45 PM

The LeBron James pendant story gets crazier and crazier by the day.

If you don't know the whole story, here's the short version: Woman buys LeBron pendant for $5 at garage sale. Turns out the trinket is made of real diamonds and is worth $10,000. She puts it up for sale on eBay.

Then, Maverick Carter allegedly contacts the woman claiming that the pendant is his. She shows up to a house where he and LeBron are supposed to be. Neither of them are there. Instead, there's a group of people who pressure her, subtlety of course, to hand over Maverick's ugly bauble.

There. You are officially caught up.

A couple of days ago Jimmy Traina linked to an authentic foil replica of the pendant on eBay with actual bids for over $9,000 (pictured at top right).

It's only getting stranger. Check eBay now and you'll find the following items.

Another foil LeBron pendant with the warning to buyers to beware of fakes and impostors. This one is obviously the real deal, though it's only going for $1 right now.

This clay version of the LeBron pendant.

This drawing on a piece of paper of the pendant
, an item which is currently up to $7.46 in bidding.

Yet another tinfoil version.

And this guy's picture under an auction for a LeBron James pendant. This lovely gentleman has set the initial bidding on his item to $1,000,000. You have to love the internet.

"We Are LeBron" Video Pulled After Threats From Lawyers

Posted By on Fri, Jul 16, 2010 at 1:04 PM

lebronsnowman2.jpg

This is technically old news but it's new to me: the "We Are LeBron" video is gone from the internets.

Not that anyone will truly miss it, especially after The Decision. And the very fact it's been gone for a little while now and no one has really noticed means people aren't looking for it, but it's a little curious that after having dazzled (or bored) the public for months that it would disappear.

What happened?

The Plain Dealer reports that Break.com pulled the video after lawyers representing Mijac Music and Lionel Richie threatened the parody with a cease and desist letter.

Really? Probably for the best, at least for Clevelanders. And the entire world. Nobody really needs to ever see that again.
