I have to be honest, I don’t have anything close to a case of the Mondays…even though I have a 10 page paper to write today I’m fresh off a fun weekend that was capped off with suite tickets to yesterday’s Patriots overtime victory against the Ravens. Good times. As a result…I feel some fun links coming-
Starting off with a staring contest between a muppet and a band member from Ok Go, who I missed in Burlington last night (but again, the Pats game was worth it).
Have to love politics in our country. What would happen to NY if they actually voted in Kristin Davis as governor; the same Kristin Davis who was formerly the ‘Manhattan Madam’ who was in the news two years ago for effing Eliot Spitzer (you know, for money).
Best thing about pre-season NBA, crowds are quiet enough that you can hear some terrific heckling…when was the last time you could hear “YOU HAVE ZERO WORK ETHIC!” through the TV? Surprisingly enough, this is not about Vince Carter!
So far we’ve covered music, politics and sports, let’s finish with some movies: here is the trailer for the Coen Bro’s remake of True Grit, due out Christmas. One other note on movies…do not take your preteen to see Jackass:3d as part of a family Saturday. Not the best parenting skills.

I’ve had a case of the Mondays since Friday, thanks to the lack of offense the Celtics displayed in second half of game 7…but then this site about the oil spill kind of put into perspective how meaningless the game really was. Of course, that didn’t stop me from staying up just about all night reliving the hell that was the loss.
Hey, at least he made an effort…I hope we still are trying to find Bin Laden as ferociously as this dude.
This is the best baseball manager tirade I have EVER seen. Promise…definitely NSFW.
I relish in the French (soccer team) sucking.

Ok, so it’s almost over..my Pearl Jam binge. I finally on Saturday night and it was as epic as I hoped for. Here are the top 3 highlights of the night: 1. I’m not a huge Van Halen guy, but this cover was astounding. Not to mention the fact it is the first time Pearl Jam has ever played it. 2. This might be the most underrated song in the PJ catalog. 3. They opened with my favorite from the new album, even the intro music gave me the chills.
I’m not a huge Perez Hilton fan, but this stuff is pretty hilarious…unless you don’t like awkwardness.
It’s been an up and down week in the world of Boston sports, but the first 15 seconds of this clip, listening to Boston Celtics fans chant to Lebron, might be my favorite 15 seconds of the past 12 months. Depending on which team Lebron chooses (be it New York Knicks, Cleveland Cavaliers, etc etc…) look out for a possible dbag post.

So I’m going to annoy readers who don’t like sports, because they have consumed my life this past week (even moreso than normal), for better and worse. Here are some highlights and lowlights in the world of sports this week:
This foul call, along with the whole Tim Donaghy gamlbing thing, are why the NBA struggles to get new fans.
Here is Marc Savard getting knocked out with a severe concussion a couple months back. Here he is Saturday, scoring the game winning goal in Boston Bruins OT against the Philadelphia Flyers in game one…in his first game back.
The rebirth of the Boston Celtics happened during this fight. Unfortunately, based on game 1 against Cleveland, the rebirth won’t last too long.
This guy is going to be a legit New England Patriot…if anything skip to the end when his family chants his name. Awesome stuff.
I was going to post something about the Red Sox, but it’s just too depressing at this point. Instead, I’ll veer off my path and show you another highlight from Pearl Jam, Hartford 2008…since I’ll be seeing them again in 12 days. Here is Eddie talking about the epa and global warming stuff…usually this annoys me at shows, but at least it gets conversation going. (beware some curse words)
