Sunday Link-Off: Secret Stories of Sports Stars

Not sure to lead off with so here’s Glee star Dianna Agron.

Wayne Gretzky was never considered a tough, physical NHLer but put him in a poker game with Michael Jordan and he has bigger balls than the whole of the NHL combined. He gave MJ the business over being a cheap bastard for undertipping a waitress. (Deadspin)

Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen recently joked on Twitter that he should run for mayor of Chicago. Some folks thought it was such a great idea that campaign posters have already been designed. (Tauntr)

Google’s big announcement of the week was that they are adding an “instant” (as you type) search function. However, that’s going to make a few searches unnecessarily embarrassing and will give parents a lot of things to explain to the kids. (Gawker)

After the jump, a free NFL video game, the growing legend of 20 Cent Kane and it’s still a trap.

Want to play an NFL video game but haven’t picked up the latest Madden game or you don’t have a PS3 (or an 360 but why would you want one of those)? Try the free, web browser-based Quick Hit NFL Football. (Kotaku)

NFL legend Joe Montana was on the Dan Patrick Show this week and set the record straight on the popular movie Rudy. He says that more than a bit of dramatic licence was taken with the story. (Film Drunk)

With the NHL starting up again in less than a month, it’s time to remind you of the legend that is Patrick “20 Cent” Kane. So here’s a cockblocked by Patrick Kane story in Deadspin’s Great Moments in Drunken Hookup Failure. (Deadspin)

Speaking of cockblocking, that’s sorta what the CRTC has done to Axe’s latest commercial. Apparently they don’t want Canadians to have clean balls. (Out of Bounds)

@DarthVader is now doing interviews. When you’re the Dark Lord of the Sith, I guess you’re often in demand. (Death Star PR)

The best way to describe the past’s naiveté about the future is cute (I guess). Take this 100 year old New York Times prediction about the future. Turns out that New York City didn’t become the metropolitan paradise they were expecting. (io9)

Some scientists did a study that give hints on what dance moves attract the ladies. My question is what do scientists know about dancing? Or women? (The Guardian)

Want to cover the distance between the Earth and the Moon in one word? You’re going to need a bigger font. (Kottke)

A giant NES coffee table? A giant NES coffee table. (Geekosystem) Makes me wonder if my NES still works.

A pair of lists before the YouTuberry. First, it’s the 15 worst jobs in sports. Surprisingly, any job with Steve Phillips was not on the list. (Sports Pickle)

And here are eight of Macho Man Randy Savage’s funniest promos. (The Smoking Jacket)

F1’s Korean Grand Prix is coming up next month. Since I think the track won’t be ready on time, might I suggest this side-by-side video of how the real track looks and how it’s supposed to look thanks to video games.

Since ESPN hates Canada and won’t let us watch their extended Admiral Ackbar commercial on YouTube, here’s the Admiral Ackbar talk show.
