Sunday Link-Off: In the News

elisha-cuthbert-maxim13-01It’s the end of another week which means it’s time for some of our favourite links from around the interweb. Let’s start today’s link with Elisha Cuthbert. Maxim just named her the hottest woman on TV (or something like that). Score one for Canada.

You might think that the Russian meteor suggests that we need a better meteor impact detection system but that’s just not possible. (Wired)

When CBS dropped the Early Show for This Morning, the idea was to give hard news a spot on morning TV. It’s not gaining traction against the fluff on ABC and NBC but I like the idea. (Los Angeles Times)

Speaking of fluff, for the February 14th broadcast day, CNN dedicated 758 minutes to the stranded Carnival cruise ship. That’s 52% of all minutes of that day. If you use a low estimate of only 25% of the day being dedicated to commercials, that’s about 70% of actual broadcast time dedicated to one non-story. (BuzzFeed)

After the jump, a goalie gets his revenge, the NYT profiles Mrs. Coach and yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker.

Ever wonder who uses the various social media sites on the interweb? Pew did a study to find out. I found the gender split on Pinterest hilarious. (Pew Internet)

The NHL lockout didn’t have much of an effect on the prices fans pay at games. In fact, costs seem to have gone up for the paying customer. (Fan Cost Experience)

Those higher costs haven’t changed fan behaviour. Rivalries still get people riled up. That led to a brawl in Nashville with a Sharks fan. (On The Forecheck)

Sometimes it’s best not to piss off the goalie. A high school goalie got his revenge on his coach by scoring on himself. (Puck Daddy)

If there was a football team made up of solely dinosaurs, who would make the cut and which positions will they play? (SB Nation)

Okay, so Die Hard 5 isn’t getting good reviews. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t like the other Die Hard movies. Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker! (NPR)

Connie Britton, AKA Mrs. Coach, got a profile in the New York Times. About time big media noticed her. (New York Times)

Speaking of FNL alums, there’s a post-Friday Night Lights cast power ranking. (Vulture)

I can’t believe I haven’t seen this before but it’s a Simpsons and Moneyball mashup trailer.

I forgot to run this in Wednesday’s linkdump so I’ll make up for it now. It’s a history of women seducing men in song. I think this works because Dylan Moore could seduce any man she wanted.

And since we’ve got a bit of music here and a new Die Hard movie came out this weekend, here’s Guyz Nite’s Die Hard song. Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!
