Adrian Peterson

Cake Delivery for My Favorite 'N-Word'

EXCLUSIVE
013014_adrian_peterson_cake_launch
Adrian Peterson was like a living, breathing genie last night ... 'cause when his "n-word" DJ Whoo Kid asked for a red velvet cake, AP made it his personal mission to deliver the baked goods.

Whoo Kid made the plea for his favorite cake on TMZ just a few days ago ... saying he'd wave his $10,000 fee if a Super Bowl MVP asked him to DJ his party and provided his favorite dessert.

Whoo Kid said if anyone could make that happen, "I'll be your n-word for the night."

Clearly, Adrian got the message ... because he rounded up an RV cake with the message, "n-word we made it" ... and presented it to the DJ at W.i.P. nightclub in NYC last night.

Now, technically, Adrian isn't a Super Bowl MVP ... but he IS an NFL regular season MVP.

So ... does that count?

Super Bowl

Prostitution Bust Was Asian Invasion

The high-end, coke-fueled prostitution ring that was just busted on the high heels of Super Bowl weekend was comprised of a small army of Asian hookers ... who take credit cards.

NY officials say the prostitutes had their eyes set on Seahawks and Broncos fans who were coming in for the game.

Officials say the ring made millions, with the help of pimps who fronted phony businesses to funnel the sex profits. The businesses included wig shops, a beauty supply store and a limo company.

Johns were paying up to $10K a night for hookers and blow. The customers would do drugs and become impaired ... and the girls would then figure out ways of fleecing them by charging even more.

All of the women nailed -- in what NYPD calls Operation Shade of Beige -- are Asian, and used Korean code words to mask the drug deal.  One code name for coke -- Soojaebi ... a Korean noodle and vegetable soup. 

Mmmm Mmmm bad.

Richard Sherman's epic post-game rant DOESN'T HOLD A CANDLE to Bart Scott's legendary "Can't Wait" interview back in 2011 ... so says the former New York Jets linebacker himself.

Scott was hanging out with NY Giants kicker Steve Weatherford at Jay Glazer's Super Bowl party at Pranna in NYC ... when they told us why Scott is the undisputed post-game screaming champion.

If you remember, Scott WENT OFF after the Jets beat the Patriots in a crazy playoff game ... and Bart UNLEASHED, trashing his critics and the Patriots defense ... before capping it off with what became his catchphrase.

Seriously, Bart even trademarked the phrase "Can't Wait."

Your move, Sherman.

Super Bowl fans seeking high-end hookers were just dealt a severe blow ... after cops busted a horde of pricey prostitutes.

The New York Attorney General's Office confirms to TMZ ... a dirty dozen were cuffed and taken away Thursday. 

The hookers texted prospective clients, offering their services plus a party package ... complete with coke.

And the prostitutes were so bold ... they even advertised on public access TV.  Their message was enticing for the rich visitors ... "new sexy & beautify girl R in town waiting for u."

In all, 18 people were arrested in the sweep.  It's unclear if the additional 6 were Johns, pimps or who knows what else.

The Indianapolis Colts player was a Super Bowl event where he was supposed to put one through the uprights for a bunch of excited fans ... but when he went to plant his foot, things took a turn.

Of course, Adam got up like a champ ... and don't worry, he still made the kick.

Marshawn Lynch
has been taking heat for BARELY saying a word at the Super Bowl media events in NY this week ... but years before he clammed up, the guy gave one of the GREATEST football soundbites of all time.

It all went down after Marshawn's Oakland Tech High School beat up on Skyline High back in '04 ... that's when Lynch -- who had just scored a MONSTER rushing TD for the win -- erupted on camera after the game.

There was raw emotion ... there was pure happiness ... there was a promise to treat his linemen to a fancy dinner at Sizzler.

No word on whether the o-line ever got the meal ... but Marshawn can definitely afford it now.

EXCLUSIVE
0128-denver-broncos-party-tmzA bunch of Denver Broncos players decided to blow off some pre-Super Bowl steam Monday night with a huge sushi dinner in NYC -- with champagne and models ... but no Peyton Manning, TMZ Sports has learned. 

We know ... linebacker Brandon Marshall, defensive tackle Mitch Unrein, linebacker Wesley Woodyard and roughly 15 of their teammates hit up Tokya sushi lounge around 8pm. 

We spoke to Tokya owner Roee Nahmani who tells us ... the guys were hesitant to scarf down the sushi at first, out of fear of a possible bubble gut situation ... but quickly got over it and proceeded to eat more than 100 ROLLS. 

We're told the guys did booze a little bit -- drinking some Don Julio 1942 tequila, Moet Rose champagne, Ciroq vodka and Hennessey ... and toasted to the Super Bowl with every round. 

Don't worry, Nahmani says things never got out of control and the guys couldn't have been nicer. 

No word on Peyton Manning's whereabouts.

Richard Sherman was feeling the love -- AND THE HATE -- in New York last night when he was confronted by a Broncos fan who started talking all sorts of trash ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

Sherman was leaving the Nets game in Brooklyn along with some of his Seahawks teammates when a Denver fan started heckling at close range.

"Sherman, let's go Broncos, Sherman ... Demaryius is gonna OWN YOU this week!"

That's when some of Sherman's supporters got his back -- screaming back at the Denver fan.

You can hear one Sherman fan yell out, "Number one corner in the game. Number one f**king corner baby!!! Talk it -- we love it in New York!"

Sherman stayed composed during the incident -- and made it back to the team bus without engaging the haters.

With the Super Bowl just days away, Seattle Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman took a break from hardcore preparation ... to unwind at a Brooklyn Nets game with some of his teammates.

Sherman -- along with linebacker Bobby Wagner -- got the complete VIP treatment at the Barclay Center Monday night to watch the Nets take on the Toronto Raptors.

The Hawks didn't just get to hang out in a pimped out VIP suite, they also got to kick it courtside for a while ... where they had seats right near Michael Strahan.

We're told the people at the stadium went all out for their guest stars -- treating the guys to all the Skittles they could eat and a special guest visit with the Brooklynettes dancers.

In the end, the Nets couldn't quite switch into Beast Mode ... and lost to the Raptors 104-103.
