Somebody Stop Me: I had hoped to have some original content, but the best I can up with is yet more curious links. Plus, it'll probably be around ten days or so until my next post but at least you have a lot of reading material to keep you nice and unproductive.
  • An English expat football fan hits an Irish bar in New York to catch a football game and gets nasty grub and loads of Guinness all before 10AM, plus some insight into American football fans.

  • If you know how many halves there are in a basketball game, then you are well on your way to a University Diploma. Guys, at least pretend it’s a real education. Of course, you can get your kids an early start by encouraging them to do nothing.

  • Comical quotes from Murray Walker, who is the Yogi Berra of Formula 1 auto racing.

  • A French study approves of the Big Mac over Quiche Lorraine. Vive le malbouffe!

  • Speaking of Mickey D.'s, they are running a no purchase necessary, just be in the restaurant to win, contest after losing a lawsuit over previous contests being misrepresented.

  • A short list of books that should never have been written. One author even selects one of her own. This is one list I'm happy to not be on.

  • A fascinating series of photos from a Ukrainian woman who rode her motorcycle through the 'dead zone' of Chernobyl.

  • The Sopranos starts tomorrow, but here is some advanced info -- nothing so detailed that it will ruin the season for you.
