Fox baseball analyst Tim McCarver insists the word “STRIKE” has five letters. He even spells it out for you.
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was none-too-happy with his offensive coordinator Mike Martz last night, and said as much — rather profanely — during the Bears’ blowout win over Minnesota. Isolated field audio after the cut.
“Big Bored Monday” is a pastiche of the Friday night “highlight” films popular in Texas and the Midwest, where we look at the best, worst, and weirdest moments of the football weekend. (Think “wacky football highlights” mixed with “very cheesy music”). This week: a deluxe edition of goodness.
CBS was all out of sorts Sunday afternoon after going to great lengths to censor Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk’s middle finger — but then played an unedited cut of Kanye West’s song “Power.”
Florida head coach Will Muschamp was thrown into a full rage Saturday night after a muffed punt the Gators felt should have been called fair catch interference. The video — with isolated field audio — after the cut.
The NFL and its players union came to an agreement Friday to begin testing for HGH after a meeting with U.S. House representatives.
The meeting with Reps. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Elijah Cummings (D-MD) was to settle a divide between the World Anti-Doping Agency and the NFLPA.

Video of the play after the cut.
CBS viewers, EverBank Field spectators, and the closed captioning operator all did double takes when referee Alberto Riveron recited the first penalty call of Sunday’s Jaguars-Bengals game in Spanish as his own contribution to Hispanic Heritage Month. Video after the cut.
