Wednesday Link-Off: Picking Up The Pieces

Here’s Marisa Miller at the Guys Choice Awards which aren’t real awards but, like the Grammys, they can dream big.

Newsweek’s been having some trouble getting traffic since going to a pay model. Using the Konami code to hide a story about a zombie invasion should help out. (NPR)

I couldn’t be bothered to follow the NBA Finals but I can’t imagine I’m the only one. So why not try some of these six ways to fix the NBA. After all, with David Stern and his refs rigging the action, they can use all the help they can get. (Parade)

So we’re still trying to figure out who will be in goal for England in their next game. In the meantime, England is blaming Canada for the goal. (With Leather)

After the jump, some World Cup links, strange racing videos, and Wally Beckman redux.

When I say that you can bet on everything in sports, I’m not kidding. You can bet on who’s the sexiest WAG of the 2010 World Cup. (Busted Coverage)

I kinda wonder who’s doing better business at the World Cup: the vuvuzela salesmen or the vuvuzela earplug salesmen. (Breitbart)

Since World Cup highlights are hard to come by, an English newspaper dug up some uniquely produced highlights of England against USA. (The Guardian)

By now you’ve heard about the American teenager that tried and failed to sail around the world solo. Turns out it was for reality TV. And you thought Balloon Boy’s parents were neglectful. (Deadspin)

E3 is this week. We’ll have a recap up soon but for now, here’s a look at the game I’m most excited for (after Gran Turismo 5 and Little Big Planet 2): NHL 11. (Lion’s Den U)

The old adage “sex sells” applies to everything. That includes Japanese government bonds. (CNBC)

I’ve always wanted to build the computer but I’ve never had the time, money or know-how. Thanks to this handy guide, I’m only short on time and money. (Uproxx)

Last week, I featured a video of minor league baseball manager Wally Backman letting loose on an umpire. Today, Wally lets an announcer have it. (Total Pro Sports)

Kevin James and Adam Sandler gave the command to start engines at the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway last weekend. I’m happy I wasn’t there live for this.

The boys at Williams and Lotus revived a Canadian Grand Prix tradition last weekend. It’s the annual Montreal Raft Race. Teams have to build and race rafts using parts from their garage. It’s better than most proper F1 races.
