Man Lab Showdown: Gina Carano vs. Kate Beckinsale

This weekend sees a new Hollywood star premiere in her first movie while another star returns to the franchise that made her a breakout star. Former-ish MMA fighter Gina Carano stars in Haywire which boasts a A-list cast and crew. Former sexiest woman alive Kate Beckinsale returns to the Underworld franchise in Awakening. And both brunette actresses are better known for their looks than their acting skills.

Wednesday Link-Off: Back To Business

So Comic Con is over. The NFL lockout is over. CM Punk’s absence from the WWE seems to be over. And Olivia Wilde is starring in a movie that doesn’t look that good. It looks like everything is back to normal.

The NFL lockout is over. I guess we have the NBA which is locked out with their cocks out. (Literally in the case of Ron Artest.) Anyway, CBS casts the inevitable NFL lockout movie. (CBS Sports)

Meanwhile, 20th Century Fox is going to be making an ESPN movie. They’ve purchased the movie rights to the ESPN book. (Deadline)

Sources say that there is a non-salary cap and non-temporary insanity reason for Philly trading Mike Richards and Jeff Carter. Apparently, they partied too hard. Multi-millionaires in their 20s partying? Well, I’d never! (Philadelphia Daily News)

After the jump, George Lucas’ daughter is an MMA fighter, 30 years of Don’t Stop Believin’, and the return of CM Punk. Continue reading

Wednesday Link-Off: Kick It

Let’s kickoff this edition of the Wednesday links with old favourite Gina Carano.

This video has made the rounds on the internet but let’s lead off with it here. It’s the wild finish to Friday’s CFL game between Montreal and Toronto. (55-Yard Line)

The extensive and exhaustive pre-game shows of the NFL is what sets it apart from the CFL (among other things). However, most of the time, the hosts laugh like they’re high. (Wall Street Journal) Seriously, whoever voted against Prop 19 in California must watch the NFL on Fox pre-game show.

The NHL is trying to cut down on hits to the head. The German Hockey League? They’re trying to sell the game with gratuitous amounts of violence. (With Leather)

After the jump, golfers settling differences with swords, California vs. Video Games and How to be an NHL Defenceman. Continue reading

Sunday Link-Off: A Hive of Scum and Randominity

january-jones-gq-1January Jones is not described accurately by the title of this post. Though I would imagine that her Emmy-nominated show, Mad Men, could be described as such.

It’s always nice to make fun of people you know who have the same name as porn star. I’d imagine it wouldn’t be as fun for you if you were a well known public personality. (Mediaite)

Speaking of porn, there might be a video tape to that effect of MMA superstar Gina Carano. We could be talking about the highest selling sex tape of all time. (Cagewriter)

Keeping with the theme of nudity, ESPN superstar reporter and blogosphere favourite Erin Andrews was filmed naked in her hotel room though the peephole. Bloggers (including yours truly) and oglers fail to see the humour. (Deadspin: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3) I’ll have more on this story on Friday with my Humanoids column.

After the jump, Megan Fox, Jeremy Mayfield’s drug and family issues, and Charles Barkley attempts an interview for Canadian TV. Continue reading

Saturday Link-Off: Life’s A Party

olivia-wilde-maxim-3Jackie has taken today off so I have to fill in. His Entertainment Link-Off has been rescheduled for tomorrow. To make up for it, here’s Olivia Wilde in her recent Maxim shoot.

Everybody’s favourite head of state, Silvio Berlusconi, is back in the news again. This time it’s over allegations that he hired prostitutes for parties he throws. (BBC)

Fortunately I never ended up like any of these but here are ten signs that you drank too much. (Banned In Hollywood)

Egypt didn’t go far in the FIFA Confederations Cup. One theory being floated about is that Allah punished the team for being unclean. (IOL)

After the jump, packing for vacation, failed GMs at the draft, and the end of days in New York. Continue reading

Sunday Link-Off: In A Chokehold

gina-carano-maxim1In honour of our first link, here’s Gina Carano. After reading the first link, I hope she looking as good after her next fight. And insert the sorta obvious Gina Carano hold joke here.

Don’t talk shop with female MMA fighters. You may find yourself on the receiving end of a demonstration. (Deadspin)

Alex Ovechkin’s controversial burning stick goal celebration is being immortalized. Online hockey players beware of cocky Russian wannabes. (Globe & Mail)
