Citizen Fall

Tit for Tat

Posted in Linkage by ryedog on November 12, 2008

Because we could always use the reciprocal scratch on the back, it’s nice from time to time to get an idea of what our fellow bloggers-in-arms are busy doing for little or no compensation:

Back Cover

  • Sports by Brooks fulfills its litigious duties by covering the landmark case that will ensure your favorite retired NFL players will no longer remain nameless in the popular Madden video game series.
  • I give it months before esteemed filmmakers are banging down this guy’s door.  Busted Coverage features this viral video created by a psychotic 39-year-old football dad whose son made a big stick in a midget league game.  Because the indie masterpiece is comprised of one scene, special effects were paramount, hence the fireworks and thought-provoking soundtrack.
  • Apparently, you haven’t lived until you’ve had the bottom half of your leg disintegrated by enemy mortar rounds.  And if you have, but failed to utilized your belt as a makeshift tourniquet, you’re still just a floundering va-jay-jay.  That’s what With Leather would lead us to believe.
  • As a child, part of the imagination and wonder that accompanied watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory stemmed from the assertion that oompa loompas were fictional characters.  However, never ceasing to amaze me, Hot Chicks with Douchebags has gone to great lengths to obliterate the legitimacy of my childhood fantasies.

Ladies

  • After much deliberation, On 205th has announced its pick for Sexiest Woman on the Planet 2008—and the pick may surprise you.  Personally, I think Marissa Miller got hosed.
  • Sure, Jennifer England is smoking, but she’s a liar.  But that didn’t stop Salty Milk from advertising her portfolio.
  • Having trouble landing that girl of your dreams?  As Heavy.com shows us, the solution to your problem may lie in your ability to venture into uncharted territory.  In other words, you need to be more like this guy.
  • Because indecision has always been a flaw of mine, instead of choosing just one, I’ll present you with Coed Magazine’s entire list of Miss Coeds.

Sports

  • It’s unfortunate this particular former LSU doctorate student happened to make a trip back to his old stomping grounds on the same day the Tigers bent over for the Georgia Bulldogs.  But don’t feel too bad for him.  We’re sure that fleece-vest-and-kickass-visor combo came in handy at the postgame parties.  [Courtesy of EDSBS]
  • Phil Guidry is the resident mythbuster over at Sports Illustrated. Herein, last week he took a shot at the idea that the college football regular season is a playoff—which it is.  Feel free to take my side and disagree with Mr. Guidry, because the skepticism is what fuels his opportunity for future bustings.  Plus, he could probably use the cash.
  • The Cedar Rapids Gazette’s Mike Hlas received a nasty email from actor/comedian Tom Arnold when word was released that a recent visit to an Alabama practice meant Arnold, an Iowa native, was denouncing his Hawkeye loyalty.
  • See what happens when a certain Deadspin editor and his former boss take advantage of the services of an amateur photog to enjoy a night of Monday Night “football” at an area dollar dance.

Politics/Liquids (because you can’t have one without the other)

  • The Huffington Post outlines President-elect Obama’s $12 million transition plan, which includes demolishing Bush’s personal spa to make room for a regulation basketball court and hiring a professional to clean up the shit left behind by Obama’s daughters’ dogs.
  • So, you wanna torture some poor soul while you get sufficiently liquidified?  It’ll cost ya.  Tasty Booze fills us in on a new, ingenious concept named Designated Driver Online, which will allow you to hire a private DD to do your vehicular bidding for the night and/or morning.
  • Via Crooks and Liars, we learn that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s family spent much of Monday frantically raiding their closets in search of the $150,000 in clothes that was purchased by the GOP and reportedly needs to be returned…immediately.
  • With advent of thermosensitive fabric, many things that were once unthinkable are now within the realm of possibility, including the ability to detect whether she’s, indeed, faking that orgasm.  The Bachelor Guy explains.
