Wednesday Link-Off: Very Lively

Blake Lively was the star of this past Sunday’s Emmys. That red dress has launched her into the realm of the A-list celeb.

Former Russian President Boris Yeltzin was notorious for his love of alcohol. It wasn’t just at home that he loved to drink. Bill Clinton’s empty liquor cabinet can attest to that. (Daily Telegraph)

You can say a lot of things about Oregon Ducks football coach Chip Kelly. One thing you can’t say is that he isn’t a class act. A fan demanded his money back from his trip to a bad road game and Kelly sent the man a cheque. (EDSBS)

Is it sad when the fan that paid to get into the Russian soccer game is better than the overpaid capitalist dog that’s a star player. I guess in Soviet Russia, stars cheer you. (Off the Post)

After the jump, the end of the Lego house, the greatest basketball shot ever, and the failure of the Dallas Cowboys’ Party Pass tickets.

It may have been the highest rated Sunday night game and most attended game on US soil in the history of the world but some fans weren’t happy. Specifically, those fans in the standing room only Party Pass sections. (You Been Blinded)

If you were watching ESPN’s College Gameday, you would have noticed that time may heal wounds but it doesn’t make Kanye jokes any less funny. (Busted Coverage)

All is fair in love and war. All is also fair when trying to win your first Olympic gold medal on home soil. (Deadspin)

Now I’ve seen it all. Snuggie took center stage at New York’s fashion week with it’s own “fashion” creations. (Huffington Post)

Believe it or not, there’s some sort of kinship between rappers and annoying radio talk show hosts. And I’m not talking about the fact that I’m both a rapper and a talk show host. (New York Times)

This man won’t win father of the year any time soon. (

Most of Britain seems to be anti-Manchester United. Well, at least The Guardian is. They’ve found that United has been getting preferential treatment from officials. (The Guardian)

It’s a double dose of photo galleries today. First, it’s a look at stunts gone or going horribly wrong. Like The Lowdown motto, they’re ambitious but rubbish. (The Chive)

Finally, the end of the greatest revolution in home construction in recent memory. The end of James May’s Lego house. (Daily Telegraph)

Could this be the world’s longest basketball shot?

I’ve been trying to post this for a while but I’ve finally pulled it off. In honour of last night’s second episode of Joe Buck Live, here is the superior series premiere of Joe Buck Live with Artie Lange. Provides Artie Lange on Joe Buck Live
