Mike Keenan Thinks You're Number One: A Weekly Roundup From The Tips Forum

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

We get many fantastic tips in our inbox and from the #tips forum. Some are not so great. These are some of those #tips we specifically overlooked or ignored. All apologies.

"Tea_for_Dong" caught Mike Keenan learning why, in this age of screengrab software, it's never a good idea to start counting with the middle finger.

"JobuNeedsARefill" right pissed himself when he read the headline "McCoy tested positive for marijuana," before realizing it was USC TE Anthony McCoy, and not one of the good ones. I guess the lesson here is, make sure it's the real McCoy.


"ArkansasFred" and Michael Strahan would like to invite you to a Vaseline Men Twitter Party.

•Sure it's old, but "BullfightsOnAcid" bringing us a drunk dude falling through a car window at the Steelers' parade is what we in the business call "evergreen."

"JimmyDTU" found it amusing that the headline on the Padres' web site reads, "Eight Padres on All-Star Ballot." Congrats, San Diego! That's tied for least, with every other NL team. First place is obviously a 14-way tie between every AL team.


"the-Bored" is the only person still reading Scoop Jackson, and his latest screed about how MLB banning (and later reinstating) Joe Maddon from wearing a hoodie is racist. Also, Scoop misspells "Joe Torre" and "MLB." Seriously. I guess not even the copy editors are still reading Scoop.

"Disco Choo" caught the kid who played McLovin saying a naughty word at the Cubs game. You'd be salty too if the world referred to you solely as "McLovin," and didn't bother to look up your real name.


Good work this week, #tips folks. Maybe we'll have to shut the commenting down again sometime so you're forced to go there. Until then, keep them coming.
