Bynum Spotting: Images of a Loon (Andrew Bynum Carries a Stuffed Tiger Around King of Prussia Mall)

So you're here for the story? OK. Just let me wet my whistle.

Andrew Bynum will see a doctor in New York today to find out if he can begin practicing again (if you’ll recall: Bynum hasn’t played a game for the Sixers yet). As such, he didn’t make the trip to Houston last night to see his injury-plagued team get THUMPED by the Rockets.

So he went shopping at the King of Prussia Mall.

Through the magic and power of Twitter, that little social network that sees everything, a loon was spotted doing some Christmas shopping… at some very high-end stores.

Here’s Bynum carrying what appears to be a stuffed black-and-white striped tiger through Nordstrom…

Charles Barkley Would Like to Put Some of His Blackness in Tiger Woods

Kyle Scott - September 21, 2012

"I get it. The same way I put my quarter of blackness in 7,000 women? Nice!"

It’s been a few hours since Charles Barkley last said something hilarious. So, he was due.

Asked about Tiger Wood’s somewhat indifferent reaction to Greg Norman’s comments that Tiger was intimidated by Rory McIlroy – Woods jokingly responded by calling Rory The Intimidator – Barkley had this to say on a Chicago sports talk radio station: [the full quote, for your humorical pleasure]

“I got to tell you something, I’m disappointed in Tiger. You know, how long is he going to let anyone say anything about him? Like, I would like for him to just blast Greg Norman. He saw all the stuff he’s been through these last few years, he’s got to realize– like dude, these people really don’t like you even though you made them a gazillion dollars. That situation gave everybody a chance to dump on you, and he still tries to take the high road. You know, I’m not a high road guy. I wanted him to come out and really blast Greg Norman. Like dude, what the hell are you talking about? I got a lot more victories than you. I got a ton more majors than you.

I don’t understand why he just lets people treat him any type of way. I really don’t. I wish he would just go ballistic on Greg Norman. You can’t just let people say anything to you about you when you’re minding your own business. Tiger’s always taking the high road, so everybody dumps on him about the marriage stuff. He’s been struggling for the last few years. Everybody’s been dumping on him. Now he’s having a terrific year. He’s won three times, he’s having a great year. Obviously he didn’t win a major, I’m very cognizant of that. But like, you just can’t say anything about that kid you want to. I wish I could just put some of my blackness in him. 

That means, like, hey man… toughness. And I’m not talking about that mental golf toughness. Like, hey man, you can’t just say anything to me. 

Like, when I got arrested eight times for fighting, I was like dude, just cause I’m Charles Barkley you can’t disrespect me anyway, and I have slapped the hell out of fans before. Listen, I’m gonna respect the fans, and 90% of the fans are great, but you just can’t say anything to me anytime you want to. When a fan threw a drink on me, and I chased him through a bar. When I caught him, I rammed his damn head through the window. Know what I told the judge [when he asked if I regretted it?] I said I regret we were on the first damn floor. Are you kidding me? You can’t just throw no drink on me.

It’s just crazy. Like, Tiger’s minding his own business, he’s on the comeback trail, and this guy comes out the woodwork. You can’t just say anything to anybody. I don’t believe that.”  

 

Listen to the audio over at The Big Lead.

UPDATE: (Not So Fast)… There’s a F$%&ing Tiger on Ilya Bryzgalov’s Mask

Kyle Scott - August 17, 2011

Bryzgalov_mask

Ugh. You can thank Charlie Sheen for killing what little cool was left in tigers. Apparently, word hasn't reached Bryzgalov yet.

According to In Goal Magazine, this is what Bryz's new mask will look like. Let's break it down:

1) That tiger needs about three shots of testosterone. Good lord, he looks like Nathan Lane in The Birdcage. Grrr.

2) The smoke transition from black-to-tiger is nice. But again, tiger.

3) It's a fucking tiger. 

Something tells me this was based on the Rocky request (Eye of the Tiger) he had from one fan back in July. Dammit.

Butt slap to Dave Isaac and Dustin Leed for the find

UPDATE: The designer at Drummond Custom Airbrush (the local company that has done other Flyers masks) says he will be customizing a mask for Bryz:

He told us it will include some Philly-themed history and will be "worth the wait."

Now, without knowing the inner-workings of the NHL goalie mask underground, I wouldn't be shocked if a number of places pitched their mask ideas to 'tenders. We shall see.

Tiger Woods in Philly for Press Conference, Reporter Almost Costs Charity $1 Million

Kyle Scott - May 24, 2011

Screen shot 2011-05-24 at 11.36.43 AM

Two things:

1) Today we've posted about perhaps the world's two greatest fornicators: Smarty Jones and Tiger Woods. And if there's anyone who can figure out a way to become the real life equivalent of Smarty Jones, it's Tiger Woods. Sooo… it all ties together.

2) This was perhaps the greatest don't ask me about this press conference move of all time… and it backfired.

Woods is in Philly today to promote the upcoming AT&T Classic at Aronimink. About an hour before his nationally televised press conference, he Tweeted that he would donate $1 million to his charity, the Tiger Woods Foundation, if no one asked him about his leg.

First question:

Tiger, how you doin? Um, first question, how you feelin'? How's your health today as opposed to a week ago or two weeks ago?

 

Way to go, asshole.

I can see Michael Richards adopting this style of post-game presser: If Tim Panaccio doesn't ask me an inane question about "bouncing back," I'll send a pallet of Rednex to inner city youths.

Audio and video after the jump.

UPDATE: Tiger will rightfully donate the money, anyway.

Jon Bon Jovi and Tiger Woods Are in Newtown Square

Kyle Scott - June 30, 2010

Bon_jovi_tiger_woods

Oh shit.

Hide the women.  Jon Bon Jovi just landed in a private plane outside of SAP's headquarters in Newtown Square.  He is speaking at tonight's opening ceremony for the AT&T Classic being held at Aronimink.

This means that JBJ and Tiger Woods are both in Delaware County as we speak.  Hide all the former strippers and 50 something cougars.

More importantly, where the fuck is there an airport in Newtown Square?
