Sunday Link-Off: Let’s Go Racing

Before today’s F1 season finale let’s get the Sunday links out of the way. Let’s kick these off with Erin Heatherton, one of the up and comers at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

We’ve finally got a (new) release date for Gran Turismo 5. It’s on November 24 so you’ve got 10 days to either pre-order or camp out to get it. (Kotaku)

And since this sort of stuff is important with Gran Turismo games, here’s the complete car and track lists for the game. (Jalopnik)

This might not have anything to do with GT5 but it’s a live musical performance by Jimmy McMillan. Why? Because the rent is too damn high. (Urlesque)

After the jump, more video game links, the evil MLB YouTube police and the easiest way to get your beer. Continue reading

The Humanoids: Turkey Dump

Ever been the victim of the proverbial Turkey Dump? I haven’t. I’m the one that’s always doing the turkey dumping. Yes, I realize that can mean more than one thing depending on how you read it. In today’s Humanoids column, I do a turkey dump of seven dumpees that have had it coming for a long time. Of course, this is going to catch most of them off guard because they’re mostly American but it was just Thanksgiving in Canada so that’s all that matters to me. Continue reading

Sunday Link-Off: Definitely Not Hipster

I think Jackie had the wrong piece of eye candy from Piranha 3D yesterday. Clearly, he should have gone with Kelly Brook. And that title is a carry forward of the theme of our latest Lowdown BlogCast taping.

Fantasy football drafts are upcoming. Here’s a handy guide for helping you come up with a good team name. (Kissing Suzy Kolber)

One of the great sports debates is who is the greatest announcer of all time. Well, there’s finally a list of the greatest announcers in every sports. (Fang’s Bites) If there was a list for the OUA, clearly I’d top it as the only man to call three OUA championship games in a season.

Fans of Pardon the Interruption and people that watch Around the Horn (because I don’t think anyone actually likes that show) know the name Tony Reali. Well, turns out that he’s a bit of a total douche. (Deuce of Davenport)

After the jump, lots on Gran Turismo 5, fun tech stuff, and how to properly dispose of a Guitar Hero controller. 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
