Sunday Link-Off: Lies, Damned Lies and Politics

lea-michele-kimmel15-01Sometimes, I wonder how there are whole websites and reporters dedicated to fact checking politicians but the frequency with which fact checking turns up errors, I’m surprised that I don’t try to get one of those gigs. You’d think that politicians would learn that everything they say would be under such close scrutiny that they couldn’t lie but what do I know.

Anyway, it’s Sunday which means that it’s time for us to do the links. With the new TV season kicking off last week through what feels like October, let’s kick this post off with Lea Michele.

I’m on the record as not believing in the efficacy of supply-side economics. Elizabeth Warren doesn’t either. (Salon)

Carly Fiorina is the latest Republican flavour of the month. However, her inability to recount facts might be her downfall. (Mother Jones)

In 2010, Fiorina ran for Senate. After the campaign ended, Fiorina’s campaign repaid all of her personal loans and left many staff and vendors high and dry. (The Daily Beast)

Wednesday Link-Off: Easy Writer

I wasn’t sure who to kick off this linkdump with but Fox kept telling me last night was the season finale of Glee. Given that the ads made it seem like most of the cast was “graduating” and that the show is terribly written, I doubt it’s long for this world. Anyway, since she’s likely soon to fade out of the public eye without steady network employment, here’s Lea Michele.

Tim Tebow needs new handlers and a new outlook on life. His handlers have requested the deletion of all pictures of him with female cast members of Rock of Ages. Tebow like women and musicals! How can he be the second coming if that’s the case? (Awful Announcing)

For some reason, Rick Reilly is still writing columns for ESPN. I don’t know how he’s still employed after turning in crap like this. (Deadspin)

Though there might be a scientific reason why Reilly’s columns seem so awful. I mean, beyond the writer. He’s writing his columns at a 5th grade level. (Deadspin)

After the jump, the worst baseball hitter ever, George Lucas gets revenge on his neighbours’ wallets and Will Smith (and everyone else) raps the Fresh Prince theme on live TV. Continue reading

Sunday Link-Off: Boom Goes The Dynamite

It’s time for another edition of the Sunday links. To celebrate no more new Glee episodes for the next four months, here’s Lea Michele.

The ESPN book came out came out this week and ESPN radio even featured interviews with the author. However, ESPN higher-ups scripted the interviews so ESPN wouldn’t come out looking too bad. Former ESPN personalities Dan Patrick and Rich Eisen saw the humour in the situation. (Sports By Brooks)

Speaking of Dan Patrick, he didn’t feel like he was treated well at the mothership. (Bro Bible)

Tony Romo got married yesterday. He’s got some interesting things on his wedding registry list. (E Online)

After the jump, dress like a race car driver, get geeked for E3 and boom goes the dynamite. Continue reading

Worst of Music: Glee – Rolling in the Deep

Last week in the Lowdown Blog Man Lab, I dissected British singing sensation Adele. I mentioned that I wasn’t a fan but that didn’t mean I wished harm upon her. Unfortunately, last week on Glee, harm is what found her as the Glee cast got a hold of her #1 song Rolling in the Deep. The result is enough for us to call for the cancellation of Glee. Continue reading

Wednesday Link-Off: Faking It

Glee was on last night according to Joe Buck. He didn’t mention that Lea Michele is one of the show’s few redeeming qualities.

Remember that Tiger Woods sex tape that no one believed was real? Turns out it’s not real. (Bob’s Blitz)

Suppose that fake Tiger Woods videos aren’t your thing. Maybe you’d rather watch this hilarious video of PGA golfer Ben Crane working out. (Sports By Brooks)

Fox Sports has done the world a favour by getting rid of their NASCAR theme. Unfortunately, they’ve also gotten rid of the baseball theme. (Fang’s Bites)

After the jump, the future of sports video games, the return of the GIF, and what Raps fans think of Hedo. Continue reading

Wednesday Link-Off: Enter Cigar Man

I’ve stopped watching Glee but if you still do, then you’ll know that Lea Michele’s wardrobe isn’t this good.

CNN took a break from politics to profile poutine. (CNN)

A photographer for the Daily Mail got the way of an errant Tiger Woods’ shot and ended up with the best picture in sports history (this year). (Midwest Sports Fans)

Naturally, the cigar guy on the right of that picture has taken a life of his own. He’s got a whole series of photoshops dedicated to his greatness. (Tauntr)

After the jump, the new NBA video games, sports business news and Roddy Piper fights childhood obesity. Continue reading
