Wednesday Link-Off: It’s Madness

I was thinking of featuring Alison Brie on Saturday but she’s too good to pass up. Now go watch Community tomorrow night.

Good news: The AP says that Canada is going to open a can of whoop ass on the world in Vancouver. Bad news: We’ve been jinxed by the AP. (Associated Press)

Another look at Twitter from the perspective of someone who doesn’t have it or much in the way of advanced technology. Still, it’s a good read. (New Yorker)

Speaking of technologically related things, cell phones might be slowly killing you. (GQ) It’s a good thing that I never use my cell and pay $40 a month for that paper weight.

After the jump, super sizing March Madness, Super Bowl Manning-ness, and William Shatner awesomeness.

The Mannings aren’t exactly a family divided heading into the Super Bowl despite the fact that Archie was a star for the Saints in days gone by. (New York Times)

We’re going to look at some more Super Bowl prop bets tomorrow but there’s an interesting story behind the Archie Manning prop bet. (CNBC)

And if you’re in Miami for the Super Bowl, the gang at Deadspin has a way for you to earn some money. (Deadspin)

Barack Obama: He may be the 44th President of the United States but he’s the first colour commentator. (Buster Sports)

Just when you thought you couldn’t get enough of March Madness, it gets even madder. The NCAA is going to expand the tournament to 96 teams? Now about the BCS… (Sports By Brooks)

What do football websites during the Super Bowl bye week? Talk about The Simpsons, of course. (National Football Post)

This comic is a must read because no one actually knows how to use a semicolon. I sure as hell don’t. Or should I have used a semicolon there? (The Oatmeal)

This story is too weird to leave until the Not News: Rip Torn got wasted and broke into a bank. About time we had a proper scandal. (National Lampoon Zaz)

Today’s first gallery is a video gallery. It’s a look at the Top 7 sports show theme songs from the USA. (Joe Sports Fan)

Today’s second gallery is so funny that you may want to wait until lunch to read it. It’s 21 ridiculously funny exam answers. (Caveman Circus)

William Shatner hosted Monday Night Raw this week. Even if I did one of my legendary live blogs, it wouldn’t have done this justice.

I have no idea who JJ Okaka is but I gather that the Italian commentator is quite fond of him. How the hell can someone make a call like that?
