Life-Imitates-Art for Adam Sandler; Has Real Life Scuffle With Bob Barker

empire-sports-adam-sandler-bob-barker-golf-fight-happy-gilmore-life-imitates-art-charity-eventHOLLYWOOD, California – 

Almost 20 years ago, Adam Sandler invited game show host Bob Barker to play a bit-part in his golf-centric comedy Happy Gilmore, wherein Barker knocked out Sandler’s character after the two get into an argument about how badly Sandler’s character Happy Gilmore is playing during a celebrity golf event.

Well this past weekend the movies came to life, as legendary gameshow host Bob Barker, 90, best known for his stint as the host of The Price is Right, knocked out Adam Sandler during a charity golf event in Hollywood. The event was organized by the Among The Stars Golf Association, a charity group that pairs Hollwood actors with children and teens for a day of golf.

The trouble started when Barker, who was not playing in the event but was there as an honorary guest, started ribbing Sandler for his poor day on the course. Barker, who stated after the altercation that he thought for sure Sandler would understand he was just re-enacting their old scene and having a good laugh, stood up from his wheelchair when Sandler came up and got in his face, calling him a “hack” and “a relic.”

“Why don’t you shut the f*** up, old man?” Sandler was reportedly heard yelling at Barker, 9-iron in hand. Barker assumed at first that Sandler was merely teasing, and ramped up his jokes, which only seemed to further upset Sandler. Finally, as Sandler came face-to-face with Barker, it became apparent to him that Sandler was not fooling around, and actually intended to cause harm. Suddenly scared for his extremely ancient life, he reached back and used all his strength to knock Sandler across the face with a vicious left cross, leaving him with a black eye.

Sandler was temporarily knocked out by the blow, and when he came to he seemed more embarrassed by the altercation than anything else. He refused medical attention, and he also refused to talk to any reporters or bystanders at the scene, but several people did hear him muttering “The price is wrong, bi*ch” over and over to himself as he walked to his car.

No word on whether Sandler will be pressing charges against Barker. When reached for further comment, Barker did remind us to help control the pet population by always spaying and neutering our pets.

Ronda Rousey Threatens To Give UFC Ring Girl Arianny Celeste Black Eye


Recently, the MMA world has been abuzz from harsh words being volleyed by two well-known names in the UFC.  No, this isn’t banter between two fighters trash-talking before an upcoming fight,  this war of words is between an pair of unlikely foes.

UFC women’s champion Ronda Rousey ended a heated, back-and-forth dialogue with UFC octagon girl Arianny Celeste with a threat to give the UFC beauty “a black eye”.

The conflict started last week when Rousey was asked about her appearance in Maxim Magazine’s “Hot 100” list of the most beautiful people of 2012.  Rousey stated that she thought Arianny’s ranking on the list was “undeserving” and that it would have been funny if she was ranked higher than her.

“It would have been really funny if I’d beaten Arianny Celeste, because that would be like a triathlete coming along and beating the runners in a marathon,” Rousey said. “Like, ‘Ha-ha, it’s your job to show your ti**ies—I do that better than you!’ Maybe next year. She’s only getting older, and I’m reaching my prime.”

On Friday, Celeste snapped back, “I don’t really like the way she carries herself,” Celeste said. “I don’t think she’s a good role model for women. I think that women should empower each other and give each other a little pat on the back.”

Rousey, not known for being the most calm a rational person, hit back hard today with a threat that Arianny might want to take seriously.

“I will seriously give that skank a black eye,” said Rousey. “Really, her entire job is wearing a bra and holding a card in the air and she thinks she can talk sh*t to me?  I can’t wait to see her at my next fight.”

UFC President Dana White has yet to respond to Rousey’s comments but we have a feeling he won’t be tolerating any physical confrontation between fighters and ring girls.

Leaked Photos: Blake Griffin Gives Justin Bieber Black Eye

Empire-Sports-Justin-Bieber-Black-EyeHOLLYWOOD, CA–

On Monday Empire Sports broke news of an incident involving troubled pop-star Justin Bieber having a bad encounter with NBA star Blake Griffin’s hand.  Social Media was abuzz and many outlets reported conflicting stories of the incident.

Notably quiet after the incident was Bieber himself. He made no posts on his Twitter or Facebook accounts after the incident and no media outlets were able to elicit a response. We attempted ourselves to make contact with Justin regarding the incident but he refused to comment.

The story was destined to fade from the public’s memory.. that is until today.

Early this morning we received an anonymous submission of leaked photos of Bieber who can be seen clearly bruised on one side of his face.  A series a photos, which appear to have been taken on a cell phone camera, show Bieber with a large bruise covering one side of his face, a swollen lip and a black eye.

It’s unknown how long after the incident these photos were taken.

We are still waiting to hear from Justin but these new photo certainly makes a statement of their own.

We will have more news on the story as it breaks.
