Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators during the Summer Olympics …….

1. Weightlifting commentator: “This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria . I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing.”

2. Dressage commentator: “This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother.”

3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: “I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.”

4. Boxing Analyst: “Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious.”

5. Softball announcer: “If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again.”

6. Basketball analyst: “He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn’t like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces.”

7. At the rowing medal ceremony: “Ah, isn’t that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew.”

8. Soccer commentator: “Julian Dicks is everywhere. It’s like they’ve got eleven Dicks on the field.”

9. Tennis commentator: “One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them… Oh my God, what have I just said?”

Mike Ike Divorce

Mike and Ike might have been a popular candy years ago, but the brand is in need of a facelift. Enter the Elevator Group, an ad agency that has chosen a pretty progressive tactic for getting young people to care about the candy again: gay divorce.

That’s right folks, Mike and Ike are heading for splitsville, so Mike can work on his music and Ike can work on his art. This separation is realized through new packaging, which has logos with either “Mike” or “Ike” scrubbed out reports the New York Times. The Times also reports that billboards with the scrubbed-out names will begin appearing in July, including an animated billboard in Times Square.

The full ramifications of the split is really evident online, especially on Facebook, YouTube and Tumblr. On April 10, Ike posted on Tumblr:

I know it’s hard to believe, but yes – Mike and I split. It is what it is. We just couldn’t agree on stuff anymore. Some call it creative differences? Whatever. The guy is awesome, if you don’t count that he’s color blind. Lime is green dude! Cherry is red, not purple. Get it? Go write some songs since that seems to be where your focus is right now.

Mike shared his side:

Heard about Ike and me splitting up? Yeah, it’s true. We just don’t agree on the candy. My red, his red, my lime, his lime, my box ideas, his box ideas. So over it. Instead of all this hassle, now I’m just gonna jam. Been laying down heat with my friend Blaze. Planning to hit all the music capitals in the next few months. No sitting at home solo playing Words With Friends (that’s something Ike would do).

Looks like some people close to Mike and Ike are taking the news pretty hard. Check out some of the YouTube spots:

“It’s like Kobe and Shaq all over again”:

“They’ll be back together, I know they’ll be back together”:

When I heard the news, I was devastated”:

Man Crush of the Day

Look at how heart-stopping hot and dashing Newcastle Knight’s Darius Boyd is. Muscular, fit all over, abs, and meaty legs. A little on Darius – he was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia in 1987. While he usually plays full-back he sometimes plays three-quarter black. Before playing for the Newscastle Knights he played for the Brisbane Broncos.

Andy Murray

6 July 2012Last updated at 17:54 GMT

By David OrnsteinBBC Sport at Wimbledon

WIMBLEDON

  • Venue: All England Club, London
  • Date: 25 June – 8 July

Coverage: Live on BBC One, BBC Two, BBC HD Channel, Red Button, BBC Radio 5 live, mobiles, tablet and the BBC Sport website. Men’s and women’s singles finals in 3D on BBC HD Channel.

Andy Murray became the first British man in 74 years to reach the Wimbledon singles final with a battling four-set victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

The 25-year-old took a step that no compatriot had managed in 11 attempts since Bunny Austin in 1938.

He overwhelmed Tsonga 6-3 6-4 3-6 7-5 in two hours 47 minutes on Centre Court and faces 16-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in Sunday’s showpiece.

Murray ‘relieved & excited’ by final

Fred Perry was the last British man to lift a major singles title in 1936.

Perry triumphed at Wimbledon and the US Open that season, and Murray will be desperate to emulate the Englishman’s achievement.

It is his fourth Grand Slam final but the first at a venue where Federer is bidding for a record-equalling seventh crown.

While the Swiss offers formidable opposition, Murray will be confident of fulfilling the hopes of a nation after dispatching Tsonga.

“I feel a bit of relief, excitement, it’s tough to explain,” the Scot told BBC Sport. “It was such a close match in the end, both of us had chances.

“I started well, had one loose game on my serve at the beginning of the third set and he came back into it.

“It was tough to lose that set – I tried to stay calm but it’s not easy. There’s a lot of pressure when you’re on the court, but you’ve just got to focus.

“I did well because he started to play really well. He had break points at 4-4 [in the fourth set] and I just managed to hang tough.”

4/12 Break points 2/8

It was a deserved victory that ended a run of three straight semi-final defeats at the All England Club, yet one that many expected.

Having lost to Andy Roddick in 2009 and Rafael Nadal in 2010 and 2011, Murray knew this was probably his best chance of reaching the final.

He had won five of their six previous meetings, including a Wimbledon quarter-final in 2009 and last year’s championship match at Queen’s Club.

Tsonga is capable of the spectacular, but he was given few chances in the first two sets as Murray played some imperious tennis.

He broke in the opening game, served his way out of trouble to lead 3-1 and moved 5-2 ahead with one of numerous crosscourt forehand winners.

Murray was in the ascendancy and his brilliance continued in the second set as two venomous returns helped him strike in game five.

Murray makes history in fourth set

The fourth seed dropped only two points on serve to leave Tsonga looking helpless, but the Frenchman let loose early in the third set and it paid off.

A break to love had the fifth seed roaring with delight and suddenly he was dictating from the net and baseline. Now it was Murray cutting a dejected figure.

Not even the agony of being hit between the legs could halt Tsonga’s charge and after forcing his way back into the match, he overturned an early break in the fourth set with a delightful half-volley.

Diving and tumbling around the grass, Tsonga came up with a huge forehand to force break points at 4-4 but, crucially, Murray dug deep before engineering an opportunity of his own at 6-5.

He planted a crosscourt forehand on to the sideline and although it was called wide, a Hawk-Eye challenge was successful and Murray pointed to the sky in celebration.

Man Crush of the Day

Oguchialu Chijioke “Oguchi” Onyewu (born May 13, 1982) is an American soccer player who plays as a defender for Sporting CP, inPrimeira Liga, and the United States national team. Onyewu also holds a Belgian passport. He then returned to Sherwood to graduate and went on to play soccer for two years at Clemson. He speaks English and fluent French. At 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) and 210 lb (95 kg), Onyewu is the tallest outfield player in U.S. team history (two goalkeepers have been taller).

KANSAS CITY — Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was carted off the field at Kauffman Stadium on Thursday after appearing to suffer a right knee injury shagging fly balls during batting practice.

The Yankees were hitting on the diamond as Rivera received attention in the outfield, with manager Joe Girardi among those watching the all-time saves leader be propped onto the back of a flatbed truck and driven around the warning track.

No further information was immediately available about Rivera’s injury. Rivera regularly shags fly balls in center field during batting practice and has spoken about hoping to play the position in a game before he retires.

Man Crush of the Day

I’m not really even into this pic but I swear to whoever is above that this is Trevor Donovan from 90210. I will bet money on it that its him. If it isn’t that is an uncanny look-alike with an amazing ass but because this little gem popped up, Trevor Donovan is our Man Crush of the Day.

The Real Drake

I hope Drake remembers that 50% of his fans come from the days when he was just Aubrey Graham a Jewish Black Canadian kid playing a kid who was shot and was in a wheelchair. Never Forget, Drake!
