Time for Monday Linkage

It feels like last week since I last did linkage. And well, it’s true. The last time I did links for you was on Thursday. My apologies. Time to do some now.

After a shocking elimination at the starting line, we got another elimination at the end of leg 2 in Vietnam tonight.

College Gameday to Broadcast Live from Boston College

Certainly, Saturday’s matchup between Boston College and Florida State is hardly a marquee one, but Fang’s Bites has learned that College Gameday will be live from BC’s Chestnut Hill campus this Saturday morning. A cynical person can say that this is do help promote the ESPN Boston site. Another cynic could say it’s to pump […]

Oh this is not good. Right off the bat at the starting line, there is an elimination. A team will not even leave the country before being eliminated. Interesting. Take a look at the sneak peek CBS sent. In the frenetic pace to get out, you know someone will not read the clue and understand […]

Here's Your UFL on Versus Announcing Crew

Today, the fledgling United Football League announced the crew that will call its games on Versus starting next month. Of course, DirecTV subscribers won’t be able to see the games as the satellite provider continues its dispute with the channel. But I digress.
