We get a massive amount of tips in our inbox each week. Some are pretty interesting, but don't get published for one reason or another.
It's usually because they're just so absurd or really lack even the most tenuous of news angles to give them the go-ahead. Other times it's because they're just absolute horseshit. But every Friday until we get sick of running them, we'll present to you some of these not-so-shiny gems. All items should be treated as [Sic'd]. Enjoy...
I prefer the unofficial card
The attached are the official Chris Berman Christmas card that we received at my place of employment (an NFL team's PR department). Clearly, Mr. Berman uses awful puns (the photo was taken at his daughter's graduation) even when off the camera (at least when he's not using that time to curse someone out).
That's not even close, actually
Not Erin Andrews, but close. The guy Jenn Sterger was dating who works at Sirius was talking about the sex tape they made before they broke up on his show yesterday.
Was it a golden head joke?
I'm relatively sure at the 6 minute mark of SC when the start of OT coin toss in MNF hits Urlacher's helmet that Linda Cohn makes an attempted "head" joke. Living in a faraway land where tivo hasn't been invented yet, I can't be positive.
I think that's broken

Here we go...
Have you guys heard the rumor that Bill Simmons is a candidate to be Mike Francesa's new partner for his WFAN radio show? I have no idea to the validity of it, it comes from a friend of mine who works for another radio station in New York, but I thought that was kind of interesting. The only reason it sounds semi-legit to me is because it's one of the only ways Simmons could leave ESPN and still make a boatload of money, based on Francesa's deal and what Russo got from Sirius. Probably nothing but I wanted to pass it along.
It's ironic that you're doing a link to the best field trips today, considering, because of the idiotic new feature, they all look terrible now.
