Twitter Fail: Michael Jordan’s Son’s Message to Porn Star

You may recall that Marcus Jordan, son of all-time NBA great Michael Jordan, got himself into a bit of trouble when he tweeted out info and pics about how he was dropping thousands of dollars in Las Vegas and drinking it up — at the age of 19.

Jordan is back for another Twitter fail, this time sending a tweet to pornstar Rachel Roxxx that was meant to be a direct message.

Whoops. Now the whole world knows that you are paying a pornstar for sex, at least indirectly. Dad will be so proud!

Donald Favored Over McIlroy At The Memorial [Odds]

Luke Donald won the BMW PGA Championship last week and moved up to golf’s Number One ranking for the fourth time, passing Rory McIlroy. This week, Donald and McIlroy are back in the US, where Donald is favored to win The Memorial and Rory is expected to provide the stiffest competition. The two Americans who have the best odds to win The Memorial are some guys named Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Defending champion Steve Stricker is also back to defend his title, as are many other past winners. Tiger won this tournament three years in a row at the turn of the millennium, then won again in 2009. Other past winners competing this week include Justin Rose, Jim Furyk and Ernie Els.

Here are your 2012 The Memorial odds for all the top competitors:

  • Luke Donald, England (World Ranking: 1) 9/1

2012 Stanley Cup Finals Odds: Kings-Devils

The Stanley Cup Finals begin Wednesday night in New Jersey with two surprising squads battling it out for hockey’s greatest prize. The Los Angeles Kings, who began the playoffs as the West’s eighth seed with 20/1 odds to win the Cup, are now the favorites at -170. All that stands in their way is the New Jersey Devils, who started the postseason as the East’s sixth seed and at 25/1 to win the Cup.

The Devils do have home-ice advantage, with the first two games in Jersey, but the Kings are still slight favorites to win Wednesday’s Game One (Kings -120, Devils -110).

Vegas oddsmakers see the most likely result of the Finals as the Kings winning in six games, with the least likely scenario a Devils sweep.  Here are the odds for all the possible outcomes:

  • Kings in Six +300

Roy Nelson’s One-Punch KO at UFC 146

Roy “Big Country” Nelson and his power right hand have struck again. The man with the epic mullet and beard needed just one right hand to get a win on Saturday night.

This time, the victim was Dave “Pee Wee” Herman and it was awarded a Knockout of the Night bonus. Nelson pockets a cool $70,000 for that honor and finished Herman less than a minute into the first round.

Here’s the big finish, as giffed by Iron Forges Iron.

Big Country moves to 18-7 in his career, and he probably enjoyed some real tasty Burger King last night.
