Rutgers Fires Tim Pernetti

Rutgers has fired embattled athletic director Tim Pernetti (left), who staunchly defended men's basketball coach Mike Rice after the coach was accused of assaulting his players. Rice was terminated as head coach of the Rutgers men's basketball team earlier this week, after ESPN's "Outside The Lines" aired a video showing him brutally punching and kicking his players.

The video footage was brought to the attention of university officials by former Rutgers director of player development Eric Murdock (right). Murdock's contract was not renewed shortly after he came forward with the controversial video.

Now Murdock himself is under investigation -- by the FBI.

Kevin Ware trophy

Louisville Cardinal's guard Kevin Ware suffered a possible career-ending injury during the first half of the Midwest Regional final against Duke in the NCAA college tournament on Sunday (Mar 31) in Indianapolis.

The injury occurred when Ware sprinted across the floor at full speed to challenge a 3-point shot by Duke's Tyler Thornton. As he landed he rolled his ankle, transferring the impact of the hard landing to his right leg which caused a shear force fracture of the tibia bone. Part of the bone was left protruding from his lower leg.

As horrific as his injury looked, Ware was composed enough to encourage his teammates to beat Duke to advance to the Elite 8, which the team did in convincing fashion.

Kobe Bryant ankle injury

Kobe Bryant ankle injury

Los Angeles Laker star Kobe Bryant is out for the season with a severely sprained ankle that he suffered in a loss to the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday.

Calling the injury his worst in 13 seasons, Bryant blamed Hawks player Dahntay Jones for "playing dirty."

According to The Washington Post, Bryant was injured when he landed awkwardly on Jones’s foot as he attempted a potentially game-winning layup in the final seconds of the Lakers’ 96-92 loss to the Hawks at Philips Arena in Atlanta.

X-rays of Bryant's ankle were negative but the Lakers say their bread and butter playmaker is "out indefinitely."

San Francisco 49ers defeat Atlanta Falcons

San Francisco 49ers defeated the hapless Atlanta Falcons 28-24 after falling behind 17-0 at halftime in the NFC championship game Sunday. The Falcons' momentum faltered after fumbling the ball twice in the 3rd quarter.

The 49ers scrambling quarterback Colin Kaepernick, 25, rushed for only 21 yards in the game. But it was the mere threat of him running that discombobulated the Falcons defense. Kaepernick passed for 233 yards and one touchdown to earn himself a shot at winning his 1st Super Bowl ring.

The Falcons had a chance to win the game in the final seconds of the 4th quarter. But the 49ers defense held quarterback Matt Ryan and the Falcons on 4th-and-4 to win their first trip back to the Super Bowl in 18 years.

The 49ers will face the Baltimore Ravens in the big game that has been dubbed the 'Beyonce Bowl' in New Orleans on February 3.

LeBron Shaquille hickey

LeBron James celebrated his 28th birthday on December 30, and NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal gave his former teammate a late birthday gift: a hickey on his neck!

The video is all over the Internet. But I won't post it here due to the ignorance of the video uploader.

The Miami Heat cruised to a 99-90 win over the hapless LA Lakers behind LeBron's 39 points and 8 rebounds in last night's game at the Staples Center in LA. The win wrapped up the Heat's six-game road trip on Dwayne Wade's birthday. He turned 31 Thursday.

On January 16, LeBron became the youngest NBA player to reach 20,000 points in his career in a win over the Golden State Warriors.

    Okay, I'm kidding about the Honey Nut Cheerios thing. But the guy who was ejected from last night's Miami Heat vs Utah Jazz game for heckling Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade had a very expensive front row seat. Just because he's a well-heeled fan doesn't give him the right to shoot off his mouth and disrupt a NBA game. Only NY Knicks superfan Spike Lee can do that.

    Dwyane Wade kicks Ramon Sessions

    It was funny at the time, but to the NBA, a superstar player kicking an opposing player in the groin on national TV is no laughing matter.

    The incident occurred during the 4th quarter of the Miami Heat vs Charlotte Bobcats game on Wednesday. Miami was ahead 83-79 with 8:12 left in the 4th quarter, when Wade dribbled the basketball down the court and was fouled by sessions. As the ref blew the whistle, Wade lifted his left leg impacting Sessions' nether regions.

    It was difficult to believe that the kick was not intentional, as Sessions rolled around on the floor in obvious distress.

    Jay Z Beyonce Lebron Savannah

    Last night, Beyonce and her husband, rapper Jay Z, far left, attended the 2012 Sportsman of the Year event honoring exceptional athletes who excelled in their sport this year. Naturally, LeBron James, 2nd from right, who led his Miami Heat team to the NBA title, won the highest honor of the night.

It was obvious from her body language that she loves LeBron unconditionally -- despite rumors of infidelity which every woman faces at some point in their lives.
