Sunday Link-Off: In Theory

Seeing as we’re doing our WrestleMania countdown over the next couple of weeks, it’s only appropriate that we feature Stacy Keibler. The only real question is who was the hotter WWE Diva: Keibler or Stratus?

The folks at the Huffington Post would like to remind you that if your views don’t line up with their (or presumably their advertisers), they’ll pull your post. Even if you’re the former Governor of Minnesota and smarter than 99% of Washington. (Gawker)

They may not be favourites to host the Olympics any time soon but the professional athletes of the world love visiting Toronto. The drinking age has something to do with it. (Wall Street Journal)

They finally found Crosby’s gold medal winning stick and glove. The bad news is that the Commies have it. This means war! (Deadspin)

After the jump, Zamboni fail, sports stars having fun, and Gorilla and The Brain. Continue reading

The Humanoids: Back to School

It’s that time of year again. The kids are back off for another 10 months of having their heads crammed with stuff that they’ll quickly forget over the intervening two months before the next school year. That is unless you’re at college or university. Then you’re learning stuff that is generally useful to you. Actually, at least around my neck of the woods, the kids aren’t in school today. Teachers are already burning a day off today because school had to start early because Labour Day was later this year. Universities and colleges don’t need to start the year earlier to get in all the teaching they need. I’m sure elementary school and high school teachers would protest my insinuation that they are wasting their and the kids’ time by starting school early. They’re wrong, though. The whole first week of school is a waste anyway. Why not start the Tuesday after Labour Day and actually get down to business right away? And don’t get me started about the waste that is the month of June. Anyway, the subjects of today’s series of skewerings need to go back to school or have to their associates back to school. It’s an amazingly eclectic lineup that I’ve got today. Something for the whole family here.

This week’s radio show news is good news. Jackie and I are taping the season premiere on Saturday. Our new boss at CHRW wanted to hear the show early. The news will be a little dated but we’ll manage somehow. We’re still waiting to hear back from Activision and Harmonix about getting games to review but no dice so far. I was hoping to make GH5 and The Beatles: Rock Band the centrepieces of a music special but those dreams are disappearing quickly. By the way, have you checked out the new car wall index we put up on the blog?
