Let's recap some big events from the weekend. The Kobe-LeBron dream matchup was killed with the Magic's easy 103-90 win Saturday night. The ease with which Orlando won was shocking. But that wasn't as shocking as Rafael Nadal, who was 31-0 at the French Open, losing Sunday to Robin Soderling in the fourth-round of the tournament. Perhaps the most unbelievable story of the weekend, though, came from Saturday's 25-inning, seven-hour baseball game between Texas and Boston College. Longhorns reliever Austin Wood entered the game in the seventh. He pitched 13 innings, did not allow a hit for his first 12 1/3 innings and struck out 14. He threw 169 pitches. In between these sporting events were awards shows. Spike TV held its Guys' Choice Awards on Saturday. And while the show gets points for featuring the Ikki Twins, from MTV's Double Shot of Love, among its celebs, it couldn't compare to last night's MTV Movie Awards, which saw Bruno sticking his naked bum in Eminem's face, thus causing Em to hastily leave in the middle of the show and triggering a huge "real or fake" debate.
This item gets a separate entry because I can't figure out if it's funny or just sad. Sure, anytime a broadcaster utters an expletive on the air it's funny.

But when you say a more graphic word -- on purpose -- there are usually repercussions. (Warning: Link contains strong language.)

I thought the awkwardness of going from a tease about a stabbing into a tease about a Beyonce item was bad enough, but wait until you hear what the anchor says about Beyonce. (Warning: Link contains strong language.)
