Imprisoned Cowboys fan files $88 billion lawsuit against NFL for reversed Dez Bryant play: Report


One Cowboys fan — with more than enough time on his hands — thinks that the overturned Dez Bryant catch two weeks ago is just plain criminal and wants someone to pay.

Inmate Terry Hendrix, who is incarcerated in a Colorado correctional facility, has filed a lawsuit against the National Football League seeking over $88 billion in damages because of the controversial call against Dallas in the divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers.


Hendrix is reportedly seeking $88,987,654,321.88 in damages from the NFL "for but not limited to: negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and also reckless disregard," according to WFAA.com.

The jailbird specifically names NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino, referee Gene Steratore and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in the lawsuit.


Bryant's catch, which was ruled incomplete after a video review, would have put the Cowboys at the 1-yard line. Hendrix writes "the Cowboys' offensive line would have perfectly created an 'Autobahn' for DeMarco Murray to drive into the endzone for the score and victory."

If Charles Manson can find love on death row, I guess anything is possible.

Mayweather heckled by fans calling for Pacquiao fight at Clippers game (VIDEO)

Floyd Mayweather's appearance at the Clippers-Nets game with celebrity pals Justin Bieber, Beyonce and Jay Z drew a lot of attention courtside at the Staples Center Thursday night.



And maybe more than the boxer wanted.



As the undefeated welterweight champ tried to enjoy the Clippers 123-84 blowout, more than a few fans used the opportunity to heckle Mayweather about avoiding a fight with Manny Pacquaio by chanting "We want Pacquiao, we want Pacquiao."




Negotiations between the two fighters are still ongoing as the boxing world waits for some sort of confirmation of the $200 million mega fight.

Pacquiao has already agreed to Mayweather's terms for the eagerly-awaited fight which has been penciled in for May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. But the Filipino, who has given Mayweather a Jan. 31 deadline to commit, is already scouting out a potential bout with Amir Khan if a deal doesn't materialize.

Angry hockey dad breaks glass with wedding ring (VIDEO)

An rabid hockey dad got a little upset with a missed penalty call during youth league game and took out his frustration on the glass.



The d-bag parent punches the glass during a tournament in York, Penn. and sends shards all over the ice. Listen for another parent yell out, "Way to go, Paul" after the childish stunt.



The arena's president said the man's wedding ring concentrated the impact causing the safety glass to crumble, reported The York Daily Record.


"He broke the (wedding) ring," Menzer said. "Apparently, his hand wasn't in great shape either."

Charlotte McKinney goes au naturel in Carl's Jr. Super Bowl commercial (VIDEO)

Carl's Jr. is once again pushing the limits of Super Bowl censorship with a racy new ad starring Guess model Charlotte McKinney strolling through a farmer's market totally nude.

Well apparently nude.



The hamburger chain's ad features the shapely 22-year-old McKinney — who's being called the next Kate Upton — walking among the vegetable stands naked, using strategically placed giant onions and voluptuous tomatoes to conveniently censor her “bits and pieces,” just like the comical Austin Powers scene it mimics.

Oh yeah. She's promoting the company's new All-Natural Burger.


“I love going all natural,” the Florida native says in a voiceover. “It just makes me feel better. Nothing between me and my one hundred per cent all natural juicy grass-fed beef.”


Too bad the sexy spot will only be broadcast in the western times zones, so here it is below.

And there's no under-inflated anythings for the NFL or anyone else to worry about.


Blake Griffin did what to Clippers trainer? (GIF)

Blake Griffin scored 22 of his 24 points in the first half of the Clippers 123-84 rout of the Brooklyn Nets Thursday night at the Staples Center.



After having his way with the Nets in the first half, it looks like Griffin thought he could do the same with one of the Clippers trainers on the bench in the fourth-quarter.


We know it was a blowout Blake but, we get the point.

Australian Open ballboy takes 121-mph serve to nuts (VIDEO)

Balls have been in the headlines a lot lately — whether under-inflated in New England or blown-up on Justin Bieber. But here is one guy who's making ball news for a public — and painful — reason.

This poor Australian Open ballboy ended up on the receiving end of a 121-mph serve from Spain's Feliciano Lopez that hit him directly in the man-zone.


Even Lopez, ranked No. 14 in the world, knew the power of his serve and had a look of real concern as the ballboy dropped to one knee. 


After a collective groan of "Ohhh" from the seats, both players came over to check on him before he left the court to a round of applause — especially from all of the sympathetic men in the stands.


Yankees won't sign free-agent James Shields because of A-Rod: Report

As if Yankee fans need another reason to vilify Alex Rodriguez, along comes this little tid-bid of info coming from Brian Cashman on Wednesday afternoon.

The Yankees general manager claims that James Shields, one of the most desirable starting pitchers available in free agency this offseason, will not be contacted by the team. 



And the reason the Bombers — just one elbow away from a rotation disaster — are taking a pass on Shields?

Because of the high-priced A-Rod who is returning to the team and inflating the organization's payroll this year.




"We in fact had some contracts coming back on with Alex Rodriguez returning from his suspension,"Cashman said on WPAT-AM radio in an interview. "That was $21 million dollars coming back on the payroll...We'll still have about the second-highest payroll and I don't see it going any higher."

"Typically, when we're aggressive in the winter with a lot of big-time contracts is when big contracts are coming off (the payroll). This winter wasn't that case," he added.
The Yankees did spend heavily on Andrew Miller, investing $36 million on the reliever. But that has been it for their spending.

Their rotation does have some questions. CC Sabathia is coming off two consecutive down seasons. Hiroki Kuroda is gone. And Masahiro Tanaka is still a mystery as he avoided surgery and continues to pitch despite a partially torn ligament in his pitching elbow.


"He certainly may need Tommy John at some point and maybe sooner (rather) than later," Cashman said of Tanaka. "We just don't know. It's a complete guessing game. He made two starts before the season ended on us. It's just hard to predict what's going to happen, but we're certainly hopeful he can return to what he was prior to the injury."

Hopefully A-Rod has been working on a splitter.
