Drake Britton (Boston Red Sox): Sports Idiot 3-5-13

Congratulations to Boston Red Sox prospect Drake Britton for being too much of an idiot to call a cab when he was drunk. And driving 111 mph.

Since guns and alcohol don't mix, keep this boy away from Bryce Brentz!

Levi Austin: Sports Idiot 3-4-13

WWE owner Vince McMahon had it all wrong when he created the XFL (Xtreme Football League). What McMahon really needed was the XBL: Xtreme Baseball League. And the first player he could sign? Levi Austin.

Austin is a pitcher for Berry College, a small college in the Southern Athletic Association. Watch this video from Yahoo! Sports Minute. If that doesn't work for some reason, check it out on YouTube (although YouTube doesn't have explanation of what happened).

Brandon Barden (Tennessee Titans): Sports Idiot 3-1-13

Tennessee Titans tight end Brandon Barden was arrested and charged with a DUI in a rollover truck crash. Apparently, Barden doesn't understand the rule for getting in trouble as a NFL player.

Kenny Britt and other first-round picks who have great potential have "Incident forgiveness." They're allowed 15.5 police incidents before the franchise puts them in timeout. Releases come shortly after that.

An undrafted free agent who is the No. 4 tight end on the roster (could be No. 3 if Jared Cook leaves)? Good luck—good bye?

Asylum For Sports Idiots: February 2013

Let's welcome our second class of monthly inductees. If you missed it, here was the initial class of idiots. Congratulations to everyone!

Steve Buckhantz (Washington Wizards): Sports Idiot 2-28-13


Washington Wizards announcer Steve Buckhantz got a little excited for what he thought was a game-winning three-point basket. In reality, it was an airball. Take a look:

Can't really blame him. Detroit Pistons announcers also thought it went in. I probably would've done the same thing.

Just imagine if this were a college basketball upset. Everyone storms the court because they think they won the game. Now that would be awkward.

Confused Wizards Announcer (HILARIOUS)

NFL Scouting Combine (Stupid Questions): Sports Idiot 2-27-13

Been a little busy and haven't seen any idiots who really deserved a story in the last few days. Couldn't let this one go though...'s Gregg Rosenthal published an article about questions that some draft prospects were asked at the NFL Scouting Combine. A few years ago, Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland asked Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute. This year, someone asked Geno Smith about what type of drugs were used at West Virginia. Nick Kasa was asked if he liked girls. Manti Te'o... you can guess.

I'm sure these football executives want to see how these players respond when they're faced with unexpected situations. Why they ask these type of "Yes" and "No" questions is anyone's guess. They can't think of anything that won't get them into trouble with the league office? Even if those players knew the answer to those questions, they're not answering in the affirmative.
