Bringing Out Some Wednesday Linkage

Let’s do some linkage while I can. We’ll begin with Anthony CrupiCrupiCrupi who has some classic lines in his story on Keith Olbermann’s return to ESPN2. So funny.

Some Quick Monday Sports Media Thoughts

Haven’t done a sports media thoughts post in a while. Figured you’re owed one. Let’s do this in bullet form, of course.

Directed […]

Various Wednesday Links

I’ll do a few links for you this evening.

Cranking Out The Friday Megalinks

Wasn’t able to do any posts yesterday as I was away for most of the day. Tough to get anything done when you’re out of range for any internet or even 3G. First World Problems.
