They won the World Cup and two members are on the cover of SI (with bikini photos inside).

And apparently one or two hates Trump.

LA TimesWhy are Beyonce fans sending death threats to the Warriors majority owner’s wife?:

Death threats? Really, Beyhive?

That’s reportedly one of the ways Beyonce’s devoted fans are reacting to a viral video of Nicole Curran, wife of Golden State Warriors majority owner Joseph Lacob, leaning over Queen Bey to interact with the music superstar’s husband, rapper Jay-Z, during Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night.

Curran told ESPN she had asked their courtside guests if they wanted anything to drink. When Jay-Z requested a vodka soda (Beyonce wanted only water), Curran wondered if he wanted a lime with it. Because of the noise at Oracle Arena, Curran said, she leaned over so she could hear his response.

This story has it all — fame, money, sports, celebrities, and the threat of danger.

Are you ready for college football? I’m always ready and after a little housecleaning, USC may be ready, too:

“[T]he Trojans’ media guide has undergone some late-breaking revisionism to account for Reggie Bush’s vanishing Heisman Trophy, apparently overnight.”

Before-and-after media guides are shown at the link.

Paris Hilton Arrested? (Updated: Not True)

Paris Hilton has reportedly been arrested in South Africa for smoking marijuana during the Holland-Brazil World Cup quarterfinals match but there is no confirmation from Hilton. Perhaps she should have tried nutmeg.

Also, the Dutch upset Brazil.


UPDATE: False alarm. TMZ reports Hilton was questioned but the investigation involved someone else.


Don Coryell (1924-2010)

Don Coryell, a “founding father” of the modern pro football passing game, died today in California. Coryell’s high-power, load-’em-up offenses were exciting in an era when most offenses were pretty dull. I consider Coryell an originator of the West Coast offense that Bill Walsh perfected.

My condolences to his family, and my thanks to Coach Coryell for some great games.
