Couples Worse Than Matt Kemp & Rihanna

A recent blog post from Chad Moriyama:

As the story goes, Matt Kemp‘s 2010 was ruined because he was distracted due to his relationship with pop star Rihanna.

I have no better words to describe this other than: Well Done.

Who is Fred Wilpon’s girlfriend in the picture? You need better photo tags.

Couple #3 would clearly never happen. How would someone so horrifyingly unattractive and talentless every end up with..Bud Selig?

If the title of the last photo isn’t “The Master and His Catamite at Rest” than I shall eat my cap with gusto. I both laughed and shivered and may never sleep soundly from here on in…Fox Baseball – why can’t we quit you!?!
