Following just one year behind the bench, Ralph Krueger was fired this week as coach of the Edmonton Oilers.

Via Skype.

Yes, Krueger received the news from general manager Craig MacTavish while the 52-year old was on vacation in Switzerland with his family.

MacTavish reportedly asked for his then-coach to accept him as a contact on the video network Saturday… only to quickly get to the point: Krueger was out after 48 games.

Stop us if you've heard this before: Adam Jones has been arrested.

The Bengals cornerback was taken into custody on Thursday night after two women approached him and asked for a photo.

The troubled star reportedly agreed… only for one woman to throw a beer bottle at him and for Jones to retaliate with a slap to the face.

It's actually caught on camera around the 50-second mark of this surveillance video:

Twitter's ability to quickly connect common folk with celebrities, political figures and athletes has changed modern media and communications forever.

It's also fed the formidable beast of anonymous online trolling.

In honor of the NBA Finals, Jimmy Kimmel put together a special hoops edition of Mean Tweets, in which famous people read horrible things written about them.

The segment's concept is as simple as it is hilarious.

Watch Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Metta World Peace, Shaq, Kobe, Rajon Rondo and others recite some of the best Tweets they've received from morons below:

Look out, Tom Brady!

ESPN confirms that Tim Tebow will sign with the New England Patriots tomorrow, as the embattled ex-Bronco and ex-Jet looks to resurrect his career with one of the NFL's top franchises.

T. Tebow

Tebow was released by New York in late April after producing very little as Mark Sanchez's backup last season.

In New England, he will be reunited with former Head Coach Josh McDaniels, who currently serves as the Patriots' Offensive Coordinator.

Chuck Norris is clearly a fan of this move... but should Patriot supporters be excited? Is the team making a good move in signing Tebow?

Chad Johnson was just kicked out of court and jailed after slapping his male lawyer's ass and enraging the judge overseeing his probation violation hearing.

The troubled former NFL star was in court in Broward County, Fla., to face a judge for the recent probation violation in his domestic violence case.

During the hearing, the judge and Chad's lawyer were about to finalize terms of Chad's punishment - terms fairly favorable to #85, no less.

But the deal fell apart in epic fashion as the judge asked Chad if he was satisfied with his representation ... and he playfully slapped his attorney's ass.

The court erupted with laughter, except for the judge. She was PISSED!

LeBron James' insane block on Tiago Splitter during last night's NBA Finals contest was the unquestioned highlight of the Miami Heat's Game 2 blowout.

James' dunk-denying rejection of Splitter early in the fourth quarter was part of a run that cemented a 103-84 win for the Heat, tying the Finals at 1-1.

The epic reverse-posterization wasn't a game-changer, but was emblematic of how LeBron took over in the second half against the San Antonio Spurs.

Can he lead Miami to its second straight title this month? That remains to be seen, but the man continues to make nightly plays that defy comprehension.

Watch the play from numerous angles in the video after the jump:

Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren is not a fan of his new squeeze.

Elin, who divorced Tiger following the 2009 Thanksgiving Day Car vs. Tree Massacre, "hates Lindsey Vonn and everything about this romance," says a source.

Jealousy? Insecurity? Something specific that Lindsey did?

And the Winner is?

Elin Nordegren or Lindsey Vonn: Tiger Woods has been with them both, but who would you rather ... you know? View Poll »

It's not clear, but the 32-year-old Elin really doesn't like her.

The Swedish-born former model and nanny is "angry Tiger even has visitation rights to the kids," let alone allows the Olympic skier to spend time with them.

Shaquille O'Neal was known for many things throughout his NBA career: Slam dunks. Championships. Break dancing.

But free throws were never the big man's strong suit - and that clearly hasn't changed in retirement.

On last night's edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the ex-center took on two-year old Titus Ashby in a shooting contest; and it ended with one participant nailing eight open looks and the other being shutout.

Can you guess which came out on the losing end? Watch now for the answer:

She was found unharmed the following day.
