Wednesday Link-Off: Definitely Not Winning

I’m back from my weekend in the big city. I’ll have a Humanoids column before my return visit in a few weeks. For now, here’s Blake Lively.

We’re still waiting for something of substance to happen in the NFL CBA negotiations. However, Bill Simmons boils down the owners’ position to a simple analogy. (ESPN)

With Charlie Sheen getting fired from Two and a Half Men, you’d think he could be out of work for a while. However, HDnet’s Mark Cuban has already sent him a job offer. (With Leather)

And Sheen also has a job offer for you. You can be Charlie Sheen’s #winning intern this summer. Winning that job would be winning. (Internships)

After the jump, more Sheen winning/not winning, stages of being drunk, and Tom Brady dancing. Continue reading


Wednesday Link-Off: Solid Gold

Since the Golden Globes was this past weekend, here’s January Jones and her golden globes. Sorry, I had to make that joke.

The gang at Awful Announcing have graded each of the main NFL play-by-play teams from the five NFL broadcasters. No surprise as to who’s first and last. (Awful Announcing)

You’ve probably heard about the epic Ricky Gervais monologue at the Golden Globes by now. Here’s the blow-by-blow account with video. (Esquire)

Sorry to somber the mood but the New York Times took an in-depth look inside the head of Tucson shooter Jared Loughner in this profile. (New York Times)

After the jump, we take the links to South Beach, the greatest Archie Bunker quotes, and another great hockey parody song. Continue reading

Embrace The Hate: How The Heat Can Grow The NBA

The Miami Heat were supposed to run roughshod over the NBA. They were supposed to have at least 73 wins this season before sweeping the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals. However, the Heat are currently a 0.500 team that looks like they won’t catch a sniff of even a division crown. The Heat could have been a viewership draw as a dominant force that everyone would respect but want to see torn down at the same time. As they’re no threat to win the NBA championship, it’s time to dip into the David Stern slash Vince McMahon playbook to salvage the NBA season. It’s time for a complete heel turn. Continue reading

Wednesday Link-Off: Surely You Can’t Be Serious

We’ve got a bit of a comedy thing happening in today’s WLO so let’s kick off with Cobie Smulders.

We know that the NHL has its reasonably fair share of scandals. Avery, Campbell, Eagleson… and that’s about all I can think of right now. However, there is a set procedure for dealing with these as shown by this flowchart. (Down Goes Brown)

The Grey Cup was this past week. Sadly, Montreal won. However, us viewers also won because TSN put more into this game broadcast than they did for the whole 2010 Olympics. Here’s a look behind the scenes at the production efforts. (55-Yard Line)

With the passing of Canadian icon Leslie Nielsen this weekend, let’s look back at 10 of his best scenes. (Bro Bible)

After the jump, Sports Human of the Year voting, a Fox Nation epic fail and a couple of Monday Night Football moments. 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
