Time for another edition of the Wednesday links. Let’s kick off with Genevieve Morton.

Now that WrestleMania has come and gone and we can forget about wrestling for the next nine months, let’s look back at the good old days of the 1980s WWF. (Gunaxin)

A 59-year-old Florida man tried out for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He didn’t make the cut but it’s a fun story. (55-Yard Line)

After the jump, the FBI opens up on aliens, the latest addition to the Phallological Museum and the return of Wally Backman.

I’ve never felt compelled to look at the UK video game sales charts but I made an exception this week. That’s because last week’s best-selling game was a Zumba fitness game. What the hell is Zumba? (Joystiq)

Here’s another look at the disaster that Wall Street has created and the wasteland created in its wake. (Rolling Stone)

I’m always looking for new ways to prank co-workers so this gallery of cubicle pranks is great inspiration. Warning: The site is probably considered NSFW. (Maxim)

And today’s second photo gallery is a history of Super Bowl rings. I have belt buckles that are smaller than some of those rings. (Sports Illustrated)

South Georgia Peanuts manager Wally Backman is back for another season. His tirades are already in mid-season form. And he’s still NSFW.
