After taking last Wednesday off to spend my time writing the Formula One season previews, it’s time for my editions of the link-off to resume normal service. While the title might say NSFW, there aren’t any NSFW links. There are some people with some NSFW professions being talked about but wouldn’t reading about that be the fun part of your day.
Anyway, let’s end the preamble and start the links. Let’s kick things off with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
If there’s a Ponzi scheme that shakes Canada and no one in Canada was shaken, did it really shake the country? (New York Times Magazine)
The 47 Republican Senators sent a letter to the leadership of Iran that effectively tried to threaten Iran out of signing the long-awaited nuclear agreement with America. Many pundits suggest this is close to treason. (Bloomberg)
And the “Iranian hardliners” sent a letter back. (Slate)
I’m back in for Jackie as his internet tubes unmelt. Meanwhile, mine are still thawing after a snap freeze. I’m sure if you were to compare the highest temperature (with humidity) that Jackie’s had in January with my coldest temperature (with windchill), we’d be looking at a 70° C swing.
I’d like to say that this weekend would be a good one to get away to the theatre but if you are, don’t check out the new releases. As of writing, all three of this weekend’s big releases are under 33% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes. There’s the reimagined action version of Hansel & Gretel starring Hawkeye and Strawberry Fields, a new Statham movie which just reinforces the fact that you should watch a Liam Neeson movie instead and another “multi/intertwining-story” comedy movie in Movie 43. The critics say avoid them all at all costs.
Anyway, let’s start this post with Statham’s current squeeze… Okay, scratch the use of the classic Macho Man Randy Savage term in proximity of Statham because he’s not worthy. So here’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Continue reading
Technically, we’re a month late for the epic Transformers showdown of Michael Bay’s two pieces of constantly-in-peril eye candy. The original Transformers girl was Megan Fox who shot to fame in the role of the girl who inexplicably hooked up with Shia LaBeouf’s character. Then she got fired because Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg didn’t like the idea of an actress who had a mind of her own. So they hired Transformers 3 girl Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a model who’s acting experience was limited to pretending to be attracted to Jason Statham.
More photos and the poll after the jump. Continue reading
It’s back to normal for us on the blog. Well, at least as normal as me doing the Sunday links is. Anyway, let’s kick off with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Bill Simmons’ new project Grantland.com launched this week. It’s named after famed sports writer Grantland Rice. However, hindsight says that Rice wasn’t as good as most people think. (Deadspin)
Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Prior is leaving college football to make a go of it as a pro. Given the recent scandal at Ohio State, this means he probably taken a pay cut. But at least he gave us some more fun by leaving NCAA investigators a paper trail to investigate. (Sports by Brooks)
Speaking of scandals, here’s a well-written call to fix FIFA for the sake of international football. (The Economist)
After the jump, the Olympic cheese grater, sexters never prosper and spectacular Le Mans crashes. Continue reading
It’s time for another edition of the Wednesday links. Unusually, these are coming together at the last second. I need to start planning better. Maybe Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would appreciate that.
ESPN’s web great Bill Simmons remembers the great “Macho Man” Randy Savage. (ESPN)
And speaking of ESPN, the behind-the-scenes of ESPN book came out yesterday. Here’s a look at some of the feuds that we found out about because of the book. (USA Today)
This is the most important link of the day and maybe all-time. It’s a recipe for making Big Macs at home. (Caveman Circus)
After the jump, how to realign the NHL, the world’s freakiest Peter Cushing bust and Jose Bautista goes beast mode. Continue reading
So it’s official. Megan Fox is out and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is in. Is it just me or does she have enormous lips?
One of the things I can’t stress enough is being in shape for the zombie apocalypse. Zombieland should have given you the heads up for that. Fortunately, there is a fitness program to help you with that. (Lion’s Den U)
Michael Jordan is coming back to the NBA… Well, at least in video game form on the cover of NBA 2K11. (CNBC)
Did you know that there are a scary number of similarities between sports fans and nerds? It’s a good thing for me that I’m both. (Topless Robot)
After the jump, scads of soccer links, great moments in cut fighter history, and a Lego printer. Continue reading
