Metta World Peace photobombs and the 2012 Humpy Awards

The promo poster for Tyler Perry's next film, "Metta Up North."

If you’re just craving attention Metta World Peace, you win. You’ve got our undivided attention.
That’s what happens when you take pictures with random senior citizens on park benches in Canada – long the formula for social media successes.

This isn’t Ochocinco live tweeting his own wedding or T.O. masturbating or Shaq in those car commercials. Nope, this is actually funny. Pure, unadulterated, clean fun coming from one of sports’ biggest attention-seekers.

Humpy Awards fill the gap

One might say that this is the slowest few days of the sports calendar, with baseball on break and the ESPYs (which is in its 20th year! Can you believe it!?) on tap for Wednesday night. Sure, the All-Star game tonight is sure to do record low ratings for the third straight year (6.9 national last year) and the ESPYs are showing how relevant they still are by trotting out something called a Rob Riggle to host this year’s show … but all is not lost.

Yup, by popular demand, you get can your complete sports fix for the next 48 hours, right here, with the 2012 Humpy Awards!

You can downright feel in your bones the athleticism, the pomp and circumstance, the drama, the pageantry and the sheer “American-ness” of this event coming right through your computer screen!

Congrats Ms. Hope!
