Sunday Link-Off: GC100

Today will be fun at Lowdown HQ. We’ll be watching the final race of the F1 season and the Grey Cup with some NFL in between. If you’re a sports fan, today will be a good day. Just to troll a certain singer who is part of the Grey Cup halftime show, here’s Selena Gomez.

Since the NHL’s collective bargaining negotiations went nowhere last week, people are talking about the possibility of decertifying the NHLPA to give the players leverage in negotiations. Elliotte Friedman sat down with @SportsLawGuy Gabe Feldman to discuss what decertification actually means. (CBC Sports)

Nate Silver is so big now that even President Obama cracks Nate Silver jokes. I think he’s made it. (Talking Points Memo)

For example, this might not necessarily be fiction, but for leading us to think his girl in this story might be a looker, John Mustang should get consideration for the above. (Lion’s Den University) I’m not saying it’s a bad story. I’m just saying that I don’t enjoy being misled about Heidi’s looks.

It’s that time of week again. It’s time for this week’s edition of the Asshole Coach Digest. (Deadspin)

After the jump, Hogan vs. Flair for the 21st century, the Grey Cup from the press box, and the Chinese simulation of the Tiger Woods crash. Continue reading
