Jeff Hart: Friday Linkfest for July 6, 2012
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: July 06, 2012
With the NFL news cycle still in calm-before-the-storm mode – the storm being training camp, of course, where QB controversies and fist fights will entertain us daily – I’ve been reduced to scraping the bottom of the sanity barrel for links. Like this one about how the Bears are going to win the Super Bowl in 2013.
Just how slow is news this week? We’re back to covering the possibility of Tim Tebow appearing on The Bachelor, even though that was a non-story back in March and hasn’t seen any new developments. Anyway, here’s a fresh Tim-pic as the back-up QB gets some pointers on fighting off the ladies (and the devil) from the Gracie family.
Speaking of bachelors, rose ceremonies, and reality television, Chad Ochocinco-Johnson got married this week. In keeping with his position as the NFL’s social media messiah, Johnson live-tweeted from his wedding. Earlier in the week, Johnson used Twitter to invite a grieving widow to his wedding, making her spur of the moment travel arrangements and everything. Meanwhile, Ron Swanson says that instead of social networking we should be doing things with our hands. Like, wood-working or whatever – something that would have a tangible result. Would the bloggers appreciate Ochocinco-Johnson more if he whittled during his wedding instead of tweeted?
While most NFL news has slowed to a crawl, there are still plenty of Saints related lawsuits to read about. Pouring over Jonathan Vilma’s latest restraining order is really the only thing keeping me going in these dull summer months.
In athletics related Saints news, Drew Brees worked out with Terrell Owens the other day. Isn’t that enough to get the rumor mill churning? I wonder if Owens asked Brees for some legal advice regarding the Allen Wranglers.
Finally, here are some funny pictures about classic sports movies. Next week: news! (maybe)
