Sunday Link-Off: Opening Weekend

I’m back for another edition of the Sunday links. This one is slightly less rushed than Wednesday’s edition but to make up for that one, here’s Lowdown favourite Kate Upton.

WrestleMania 27 is tonight in Atlanta. I’m excited because The Rock will be there an almost certainly make an impact. Even more exciting is the fact that you can bet on the outcome of the matches. (Bodog)

As we kick off the 2011 MLB season, legendary baseball writer and statistician Bill James laments the lack of quality up-and-coming sports writers. (Slate)

After the jump, some more baseball links, hot women won’t go Dutch and Everybody Loves Raymond goes to Russia.

Vin Scully’s got greatness looking over his shoulder. Well, technically it’s ESPN’s picture but it’s still The Honky Tonk Man in the booth with Vin. (Fang’s Bites)

Just because the season just started doesn’t mean that the Nationals can’t already be in mid-season form. They’re already making ugly spelling mistakes. (Mister Irrelevant)

Looking for the next big thing in ballpark food? The Akron Aeros have a 5-lb. ice cream sundae they call The Screamer. (Akron Aeros)

Grand Theft Auto fans are pretty good. They’re recreating GTA: Vice City in GTA4. Looks pretty cool. (Kotaku)

What happens when the creator of Everybody Loves Raymond is hired to bring a sitcom to Russia? This promising looking documentary.

It’s opening weekend for Major League Baseball. It also happened to fall on the same weekend as April Fools’ Day. Naturally, Curtis Granderson took the opportunity to have some fun with his batting walk-up song.

Since college basketball is wrapping up on Monday, I thought we should run a “One Shining Moment” video. But this one isn’t about March Madness, it’s about the football off-season.
