Time For Sunday Linkage

Yep, it’s Sunday. Time for your links. I think I’ve struck a chord with my “Bridget Regan is Hot” post from yesterday. That particular post has exploded with people from all over the world checking it out. In case you don’t know, Bridget stars in “Legend of the Seeker” which is syndicated all over the […]

Videos of the Week: Battle of the Network Stars

I have to thank my friend, Rick Lacroix for sending me a Bill Simmons column from ESPN: The Magazine. The column describes Simmons’ favorite YouTube clip, a moment from the great 1970′s trash sports show, “Battle of the Network Stars” in which the big three networks, ABC, CBS and NBC each sent a team of […]

Bridget Regan is Hot

There’s no reason for me to post this video other than because Bridget Regan is a hottie. She’s in “Legend of the Seeker” which is seen on local stations across the country and on WGN America on weekends. This is an interview she did with G4′s Attack of the Show. I do think “Legend” is […]

More Than A Few Saturday Links

I’ll provide some Saturday links on this holiday weekend. While I was at work yesterday, it didn’t feel like work. I tried to work, but doing the links and also looking for paperwork felt surreal. Anyway, time for linkage. This first link comes courtesy of Newsday’s Neil Best. Newsday hockey writer Mark Hermann says NHL […]

It’s a bit early for this announcement, but the National Football League says there will be no flexing of the primetime game in Week 15. Two games do get moved from 1 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. for the CBS doubleheader (it seems CBS is having a lot of doubleheaders lately). But instead of me telling […]

Two Great Or Not-So-Great Thanksgiving Day NFL Moments

After seeing a post by Newsday’s Neil Best on Clint Longley’s miracle winning touchdown for the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day 1974, I thought I would try to find some more Thanksgiving Day moments. The one Neil found dealt with the Cowboys coming back to beat the Washington Redskins and it was Longley’s one and […]
