Entertainment Link-Off: Battle At Sea

After getting dibs on the film a month early over in Australia, Battleship is finally being released in North America. By now, many people may have spoiled the movie for you or perhaps told you how brainless it is. In fact, it is true. At least it was a fun action flick and it contained good eye candy like Brooklyn Decker here.

After the jump, some Marvel news, Harold and Kumar goes animated, breaking down the finale of How I Met Your Mother, 4 minute preview of the new Spider-Man flick and a look at some of the CW shows for the fall. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Under The Influence

EVERYBODY PANIC! I’m covering for Jackie on this week’s Entertainment Link-Off and will once again bring my oddly bizarre twist on pop culture. God help you all. At least you get to experience my outstanding taste in post opening photos. For example, here’s Brooklyn Decker who stars in the upcoming summer blockbuster Battleship.

Let’s kick things off in a Jackie-esque way. Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz talks about the return of his cult favourite show. (Vulture)

After the jump, TV’s nostalgia kick, why Nicholas Sparks and Hollywood are going to ruin any chance you have of having a proper relationship and a Parks and Rec gag reel. Continue reading

Man Lab Link-Off: Giving Thanks

Since we’ve been on a bit of a Man Lab kick around Canadian Thanksgiving, we figured that you deserve some links. Did you know that it’s been four weeks since our last set of links from the Man Lab? To make up for that, let’s kick off this post with Kate Upton. The world’s been a better place since she popped up on the radar this year.

Let’s kick off this week’s MLLO with a look at 101 women who you might not have heard of before. Even if you have heard of some of them, it doesn’t hurt to see them again. (Guyism)

After the jump, picking up women on Facebook, tips for university students and a new classic Brooklyn Decker video. Continue reading

Wednesday Link-Off: Play Ball

It’s Wednesday! Wednesday! Gotta get down on Wednesday! Sorry, I’ll eventually stop those jokes. Anyway, here’s Brooklyn Decker.

What happens when an April Fools joke is joked itself? Well, that’s what happened when some techies at USC made GMail Motion a reality. (New York Times)

Planning on going to a baseball game this season? You might want to plan your visit around one of these crazy promotions. (Mental Floss)

Just because March Madness is over doesn’t mean that bracket madness is over. Now we’ve got the bracket for the most powerful person in sports. (Business Insider)

Sunday Link-Off: Behind The Scenes

Appropriately for a big day in sports and a linkdump heavy on sports, here’s 2010 SI Swimsuit cover girl Brooklyn Decker.

The big story of the NHL All-Star weekend isn’t the new format with drafted teams but the big Guardian Project thing that the NHL is paying Stan Lee is doing. Okay, I’m being just a bit sarcastic there. Anyway, here’s the story behind the Guardian Project. (Puck Daddy)

Remember 2010 World Cup legend Paul the Octopus? Well, his aquarium has unveiled a new two-meter tall statue in his honour. (Off The Bench)

The biggest news in the sports blogosphere this week was the GQ profile of Deadspin editor AJ Daulerio and his work at Deadspin since taking over from Leitch. (GQ)

After the jump, sports science, Mass Effect 2 hits the PS3, and an amazing Brett Favre parody ad. Continue reading

Sunday Link-Off: Back Story

The ESPYs were last week. They serve no purpose at all but we did get to see Brooklyn Decker. That’s got to count for something.

By now, I’m sure you’ve seen the double rainbow guy video. But did you know that the double rainbow guy is a former MMA fighter? (Out of Bounds)

Fans are really into some of the most inconsequential characters in the Star Wars universe. Here are 10 of those characters with back stories that aren’t the slightest bit necessary. (Topless Robot)

Wednesday Link-Off: Super Bowl Hangover

We’re back to normal on the blog. Hopefully the heat from the UWO election primer dies down. But you couldn’t expect anyone other than Rutledge supporters to be happy after than. Hopefully everyone is happy with Brooklyn Decker leading off this post.

I love Deadspin’s Asshole Digests. The Asshole Boss Digest has a lot to live up to but it’s off to a good start. (Deadspin)

Did you know that The Who were on your TV as much as live game action from the Super Bowl. There’s video proof of that. (Gawker TV) Couldn’t we just watch a Grey Cup replay instead?

It’s best you give up on mainstream websites. Their creativity in coming up with Super Bowl headlines is lacking. (Joe Sports Fan)

After the jump, more Super Bowl links, another Milbury brawl and We Won’t Get Fooled Again! Continue reading

SI Swimsuit 2010 Cover Odds

One of the great perks that comes with a Sports Illustrated subscription is the mid-winter classic is getting the SI Swimsuit Issue. Last summer, models were secretly whisked off to tropical locales all over the world and photographed in complete secrecy… Well, at least when Twitter didn’t give us sneak peaks of what to expect. Anyway, even more shrouded in secrecy is the identity of the magazine’s cover model. Being the SI Swimsuit cover model is probably the highest honour that can be bestowed on a model. It comes with instant celebrity, international recognition, a blogosphere presence for life, and a blown-up copy of your cover in a random radio show studio in Connecticut.

So who are we tipping to be on the cover of the 48th edition of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue? Find out after the jump. Continue reading

Sunday Link-Off: Performance Enhancement

brooklyn-decker-si09-02Brooklyn Decker may be in the latest GQ but her SI swimsuit photos are better.

It turns out that it’s not just your normal athletes who are believed to be using performance enhancing drugs. Senior athletes are too. And I’m not just talking about Viagra. (Deadspin)

The NCAA’s rules are absolutely ridiculous. Teams are allowed to feed their players bagels but they aren’t allowed to give them cream cheese or butter to go with the bagel. Hell, even those cheap bastards at Timmy’s give you butter for free. (Sports By Brooks)

Good news: There will be damage in Gran Turismo 5. Bad news: It likely won’t be on all cars. (Top Gear)

After the jump, the best TV intros, all sorts of football links, and money can’t buy you a high enough video board. Continue reading
