Wednesday Link-Off: Record Breaking

So Esquire just named Rihanna the sexiest woman alive. Once again, a major publication gets it horribly wrong. Does anyone even have her in their top ten? I don’t think she’d even make my top fifty. Among the women I’d rank ahead of Rihanna is Genevieve Morton who made the cover of Sports Illustrated South Africa’s Swimwear Issue.

Some NHL GMs aren’t too happy with Brendan Shanahan. They gave him a mandate to issue stiffer suspensions but they didn’t actually think he would hand out stiffer suspensions. (CBC Sports)

In other Canada-centric sports stories, Anthony Calvillo became the all-time pro football passing yards record holder. That would’ve been a feat worthy of massive coverage if he wasn’t in the CFL. (Grantland)

We’ve all heard of Danica Patrick who is the most prominent of the women driving race cars but have you heard of Leena Gade? She’s the lead race engineer of the #2 Audi R18 LMP1 and led the team to victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in an epic battle with Peugeot. (Jalopnik)

After the jump, what your font says about you, how to survive the zombie apocalypse and Clarkson does his thing.

With the MLB playoffs on going, don’t forget that it’s all on the line for more than the players and team executives. A lack-luster performance could send a player packing and his interpreter along with him. (New York Times)

The BBC actually did a whole feature on fonts. So what does your preferred typeface say about you. (BBC News) For the record, I don’t really have a say over the typeface we use here. Thank you, restrictive WordPress coding.

Because well-enough can’t be left alone, Mass Effect 3 will have a co-op/multiplayer mode. Please, god, don’t let this take away from the single-player campaign. (Kotaku)

We’re all about preparation for the upcoming zombie apocalypse. So that’s why I think you guys should read this guide to surviving the zombie apocalypse… If you’re a zombie. Read this and adopt your strategy accordingly. (Cracked)

In case you weren’t one of the lunatics that went to watch Real Steel, here’s the best review I’ve seen of it. (Film Drunk)

The Situation is getting his own fancy-ass lollipop. It’s going to cost an arm and a leg and probably suck harder than Jersey Shore. (Bon Appetit) Tick tock, Mike. That’s the sound of your 15 minutes expiring.

And speaking of douchey things, Dr. Pepper is launching a new soda with the slogan “It’s not for women.” This’ll flop harder than New Coke. (The Daily Beast)

Alright, after all those food links, how about a good food link. Here is the last review of New York Times food critic Sam Sifton. He goes to the restaurant that he calls the best in New York City: Thomas Keller’s Per Se. (New York Times)

Here’s today’s first photo gallery. It’s celebrities painted like Russian generals. (Twisted Sifter)

I keep meaning to link this second photo gallery but haven’t gotten around to it until now. It’s the best sports GIFs of September. (SB Nation)

Jeremy Clarkson has a new DVD coming out in time for Christmas. As usual, he drives cars very quickly and on the edge of control. Here’s the trailer which includes classic Clarkson-ian antics.

NASCAR legend Darrell Waltrip was sent to Australia to call the Bathurst 1000 for some reason. Why Speed couldn’t have sent someone who knew what a right turn was, I don’t know. However, that would have meant that we would have missed this moment of Waltrip freaking out while going for a ride around Mount Panorama. (Jalopnik)
