Jeff Hart: Friday Linkfest for October 28, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: October 28, 2011
Was there any sports blog on the internet that didn’t rush yesterday to get out a story on the Tebowing craze that’s sweeping our nation? Don’t understand what Tebowing is? Here are some folks unironically demonstrating.
Thanks for forever capturing your lemming-like devotion to memes and mediocre quarterback play, pal!
In case that wasn’t enough Tim Tebow for you, here’s a handy primer on the 1,000 different Tebow stories currently in circulation. (I especially recommend the Taiwanese animation for Tim Tebow stabbing a Dolphin with a trident.) By way of sample, here’s a puppet singing about how grateful he is that Tebow’s now the starter.
Moving onto some real news, something sportswriters everywhere should be bumping their Tebowing stories to talk about, The Big Lead has a breakdown of ESPN’s highly compromised (and questionable) relationship with the NCAA. In the long term, I’d argue that this year’s money hungry de-regionalization of college sports will be a horrible thing for college athletes and their fans. Turns out it’s also a horrible thing for journalistic integrity.
Chris Cooley has claimed that the lockout is responsible for his season ending injury. Does Cooley have a point? Was withholding medical treatment from players another amoral business decision from a league that already plays fast and loose with player health? Or should the millionaire TE have sucked it up and gotten his own doctor?
I don’t need Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham to tell me how delicious Philly cheesesteaks are, but I’m glad to know he’s a fan.
Following up on a story we covered earlier this week, Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell has responded to Reggie Bush’s claims of the Dolphins stinking by saying that it is, in fact, the outspoken RB that stinks. Good news, everybody! You’re both right!
Need a good way to start the weekend? Picture MC Hammer teaching Alex Smith how to get hyphy. Enjoy!
