Hulk Hogan seriously burnt his hand in a radiator explosion and then decided to share the graphic photos with the world.
The 59-year-old had to make a trip to the emergency room on Sunday after a radiator accident left his hand burnt and extremely swollen.
“Just had a radiator explode on my hand, OUCH,” he tweeted to close to 600,000 followers, along with a photo of the injury.
US Magazine tells us that Matt Harvey has made his year even better by dating Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Anne Vyalitsyna. The pair met at a New York Rangers game and as they say the rest is Twitter history.“A @NYRangers win!” he tweeted on May 6. “Riding the elevator out of the garden with the beautiful @AnneV. And now bedtime, to get ready for @Mets baseball.” Shortly after the tweet, a source explained to Us Weekly he successfully snagged the 26-year-old model’s phone number, and the two have been seeing each other since.”
The NBA’s Board of Governors voted on Wednesday to keep the Kings in Sacramento rather than allowing them to move to Seattle. Needless to say, a lot of reporters wanted to talk to the team’s co-owner, George Maloof, after the vote was announced. Kevin Fippin of the Kings blog Sactown Royalty, was on the scene and tweeted what happened next.
“Media just chased George Maloof into the Bell Stand closet!!! UNREAL!!”
“He is in a closet guys!!!”
“George opened the door for a second and closed when he saw this!”
Kobe Bryant decided to share a surgery picture of his right leg/heel on Instagram Tuesday. He had an operation last month to repair the Achilles tendon, which he tore against the Golden State Warriors on April 12.
If you like sports highlights but spend more time on social networks than watching TV, Twitter and ESPN are going to do their best to meet your needs.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Twitter and ESPN plan to announce a deepening of their existing relationship, agreeing on a pact under which the leading sports channel will unveil a wide variety of highlight clips in its tweets. The videos would be available on Twitter “shortly after” they take place live.
Naturally, the new arrangement which expands on a pact signed in December under which ESPN began embedding replays of college football highlights into its tweets is all about ad revenue. The sports network will place ads inside the clips, and advertisers will agree to purchase a minimum number of promoted tweets related to the highlights, the Wall Street Journal reported. Sports covered under the deal include World Cup soccer and X Games tournaments, according to the Journal.
A Twitter spokesperson confirmed the Journal’s story, and this afternoon, several people in senior roles at the social-networking giant posted tweets linking to it. Adam Bain, Twitter’s head of revenue, went so far as to note in his tweet,
“More news from the upfronts,” referring to the TV network meetings with advertisers that are taking place this week.
The Twitter-ESPN agreement goes a long way to bolstering the theory that Twitter is moving quickly to strengthen its ties to TV networks. Last month, a Bloomberg report suggested that Twitter was in talks with NBC and Viacom about bringing more of those networks’ content to the tweets users see all in the hopes of boosting ad revenue.
And earlier today, the Journal also noted that Twitter and Fox agreed to bring some of that TV network’s video to users via the tweets they see. As with the ESPN relationship, the Fox pact would be built to leverage advertisers’ ability to reach users.
If you recall Indiana Pacers big man Roy Hibbert was on his way to dinner in Manhattan when he saw a classy gal pooping between two vehicles. After the Pacers’ 93-82 win over the Knicks Tuesday night, Hibbert celebrated with some fine dining in downtown Indianapolis, and was greeted with this totally normal scene: a man walking his pet goat.
“I know we live in Indiana. But this should not be happening outside of a fine dinning restaurant. GOAT!!!!”
Where does Big Roy need to go to have a normal dining experience these days?
Unfortunately for New York Knicks owner James Dolan, shooting 35.6% from the field in a pivotal Game 4 loss to the Indiana Pacers is one nightmare he can’t wake up from.
Johnny Manziel’s dream offseason continued this weekend. The Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner tweeted that he was at Pebble Beach playing golf with his family.
Manziel has not been shy about sharing all the amazing things he has done. He tweets pictures when he’s at big-time NBA or MLB games, and he’s gone on vacations to Mexico, New Orleans, and Toronto in recent months. The lavish lifestyle has led to many people questioning how he is able to afford all the luxuries despite being a college student. Others
have wondered how he even has time to be a student with all the fun things he seems to be doing.
Manziel responded to some of the criticism he heard over Twitter after tweeting about his golfing exploits:
“RT seems like your putting a lot of work into football these days douchebag” here working with my QB coach AND golfing”
“Okay now that everybody ripped me for playing some golf with the family..how’s everyone’s day going? Done with finals and enjoying summer?”
Jason Kipnis of the Cleveland Indians had an incident with a heater this weekend, and it ended up in a pair of burnt pants. Kipnis Tweeted that he was chatting up his coach and stood a little bit too close to the heater which burned a hole in his uniform.

One unique aspect of the Seattle Seahawks practice facility is its location on the shore of Lake Washington.
That allows those with a watercraft an opportunity to see what’s happening on the practice field. Even one of the players.
Seattle All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman decided to take in some of the Seahawks’ rookie minicamp on Friday from a jet ski parked in the lake.
Sherman had tweeted earlier in the day his intention to jet ski over to the facility, and about an hour into the practice showed up just off shore.
“Gonna ride my Jet Ski up to watch the rookies from the Lake”
“Watching the rooks from the Lake”
Sherman hung out for about 30 minutes, drawing the attention of photographers on shore and posing for pictures with other onlookers in boats near the facility.
Texas Tech offensive lineman Alfredo Morales tweeted the photo you see above on Tuesday, which shows a letter head coach Kliff Kingsbury sent to all of his players before they went home for summer break.
“Also we advise you to be active over break as you will need to be ready to work once June rolls around,” the note read. “Sitting at the house playing COD/2K13/Madden against 12 year olds online doesn’t suffice as ‘activity’ even if you claim to ‘wreck shop.’”
Dallas Latos, wife of Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Mat Latos, tweeted out the in-flight menu for the team’s charter, which she doesn’t get to ride on often.
The menu is divided into four sections: Pre-Departure Snacks, Dinner Selections, Snacks, Beverages. It doesn’t say as much, but presumably the format implies that the second set of snacks is for after the plane has departed.
Pre-departure snacks include personal pizzas, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, California rolls, and shrimp cocktail.
For dinner, Latos, Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto and all the Reds can select from fried shrimp with macaroni and cheese and grilled haricots verts, chicken stir fry with jasmine rice and vegetables, baked lasagna, a bleu cheese and spinach entree salad with a grilled beef fillet on top, or cheeseburgers.
After dinner, there’s ice-cream bars, ice-cream sandwiches, caramel corn, fresh fruit and cheese, candy bars, and more.
The menu detailed above was for the Reds’ flight from Chicago to Cincinnati. That trip takes about an hour.
NBC Sports has been looking for a new voice to replace Faith Hill for the introduction of Sunday Night Football ever since Hill opted to give up the role last month, a role in which Hill held for six years.
Naturally, rumors have run wild about who the network may tab to replace her. Well, all of that speculation could come to an end soon when NBC makes what they referred to as a “major talent announcement.”
The network sent out a press release Monday stating that an announcement involving Sunday Night Football is set to be made at approximately 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Then came the following tweet from country music star Carrie Underwood:Could she be alluding to a partnership with SNF?
“Just to let you know, we have some great news that we’ll be sharing tomorrow! I’m really excited about it! Stay tuned.”
We shall know the answer for sure by Tuesday evening.
The Indiana Pacers are currently in New York City preparing to revive their classic ’90s rivalry with the Knicks. The night before Sunday’s Game 1 tip-off, Pacers center Roy Hibbert hit the town and while on the way to dinner, noticed something quite unappetizing and tweeted about it.
“I was in a cab on the way 2dinner 2night. As i get out I see a girl calmly taking a poop on the side of the road!”
The Philadelphia Eagles offense is certainly expected to get much faster under new head coach Chip Kelly and the new scheme is apparently inspiring some fun competition at the team’s offseason conditioning workouts.
Eagles safety Colt Anderson broke this news earlier Thursday.
That’s right, a 32-year-old quarterback Michael Vick coming off an injury-plagued season finished ahead of the team’s 24-year-old starting halfback LeSean McCoy.
Then he took the time to rub it in for the world to see.
“So today at the field 1 of my teammates called me old & bagged to race me in the 40yd dash. Anybody want to guess which player? #BirdGang”
“Beat him by a few yards too lol #SpeedKILLS”

New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony got into it with Boston Celtics reserve Jordan Crawford after Boston extended the series with a Game 5 victory Wednesday night, exchanging words after the buzzer. Twitter and the blogosphere blew up after video and GIFs of the incident appeared to show Crawford mouthing a profane insult to Anthony about his wife, La La.
Earlier this season, Anthony got into it with Kevin Garnett after the Celtics star reportedly told him his wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios”.
On Thursday, Anthony’s wife, La La, joined the battle on Twitter and took aim at Crawfor
“Try again. You on the bench for a reason.”
It had an Instagram photo attached to it that read
“Strong Women only intimidate weak men.”
Yesterday, the Dan Patrick Show revealed that in this week’s edition of Sports Illustrated, the cover story would be a story written by NBA player Jason Collins, coming out as the first active, gay male athlete in the major professional sports leagues. Reception for Collins’ article has largely been positive, and people from all across sports have reached out to Collins.
One organization to reach out to Collins was the Boston Red Sox. Collins played 32 games with the Boston Celtics this year, including seven starts, before being dealt to the Washington Wizards in February. The Red Sox tweeted to Collins that he had an open invitation to throw out the first pitch at Fenway Park due to his courage and leadership in coming out.
New England Patriots punter Zoltan Mesko asking his followers on Twitter if it would be weird to post a picture of himself poolside. This is what the punter came up with.
Philadelphia 76ers forwardNick Young took to Twitter to show off his new mullet in his attempt to steal the hair spotlight away from teammate Andrew Bynum
The “Philadelphia 76ers center continues to experience swelling in his knee, setting back any progress that had been made to this point.
“I don’t really know if I’ll play this year.” This contradicts February 19′s quote, ”I’ll definitely be back sometime this year.” “I don’t want to play in pain.” “I feel like it’s my life. I’m 25 and I don’t want to have no cartilage.”It was clear that things were getting all too real for the city of Philadelphia and its basketball team when the district attorney, Seth Williams, responded to the news.
“How much is he getting paid? Do I need to launch a grand jury investigation?” Williams tweeted.
Williams later tweeted “It could be fraud, theft of services or robbery. Fans and ticket buyers need to know. 10-9-8-76ers!”

Kobe Bryant, who was fined two years ago for using a gay slur toward a referee, scolded two Twitter users for using homophobic language over the weekend.
He tweeted: “Just letting you know @pacsmoove @pookeo9 that using ‘your gay’ as a way to put someone down ain’t ok! #notcool delete that out ur vocab.”
Bryant was responding to a message from user @pookeo9, a 16-year-old Canadian, and a subsequent response from @pacsmoove.
The first tweet was directed to the @kobebryant handle and read, “Let’s make out in bed Kobe.”
@Pacsmove retweeted that message, adding “you’re gay” to the beginning.
Bryant responded with the admonishment, then acknowledged his past issues with using homophobic language when confronted by another Twitter user.
“Exactly,” he wrote. “That wasn’t cool and was ignorant on my part. I own it and learn from it and expect the same from others.”
Bryant was fined $100,000 in April 2011 for using a slur toward a referee.
Bryant’s tweet didn’t make an immediate impact on the two young men he addressed. The first defended his “joke” and the second said he was “mad as hell” that Kobe embarrassed him.
Many sports fans knew a few things about Reuben Foster. We knew he was a top linebacker prospect and that he got an Auburn tattoo before decommitting and signing to play with Alabama. But many of us did not know that his father was a fugitive who escaped jail in 1996 after being indicted for shooting him and his mother.
US Marshals said they captured Danny Foster, 41, in Miami. He shot his wife, Inita Barry Paige, in 1996 while she was holding Reuben, who was 18 months old at the time. Danny Foster was indicted in Alabama, fled to California where he was caught and extradited back to Randolph County. He escaped jail and has been a fugitive since Dec. 1996. Foster was found in Florida where he had assumed a new identity, living as Jefferson McClendon.
Paige was shot in the back and suffered a collapsed lung from the shooting.
Foster seemed to be happy about his father’s capture. He wrote the following on his Twitter account:
“Tears pooring!!! Never knew him but ain’t nothin like a real father when you keep asking Foster side where your dad at and they lie about!!!”
“I knew he was out there but his family had to be hiding him!! I ask about you daddy every time we was with your family but they said you was dead”
