What I’ve been reading today

Here is a collection of things that I came across through my RSS reader that I enjoyed the most.  Hey, something has to keep me busy at work.

  • I love Rashida Jones so it seemed appropriate to congratulate her for being named today’s Maxim girl of the day, whatever that means.  She is in the new Kevin Smith movie Cop Out unfortunately, which is getting horrific reviews.  But you should be watching her on the great NBC show, Parks and Recreation, which will return after the Olympic break.  Just so you know.  [Maxim]
  • It looks like the producers are being punished by the Academy for sending out e-mails encouraging colleagues to vote for the film to win the Best Picture Oscar this year.  Will this affect the film’s chances?  Probably not since most of the ballots were probably delivered by now.  [The Envelope]
  • More proof that the IOC is no fun: they are investigating the Canadian women’s hockey team and their gold medal winning celebration.  [Yahoo]
  • Speaking of women’s hockey, there is also chatter of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League exploring a partnership with the NHL.  [Fourth Place Medal]
  • I love curling and you love curling.  We know this.  But apparently it has become very popular on Wall Street as something to watch while unwinding after the closing bell.  We know these people watch CNBC.  [NY Times]
  • The Grizzlies have sent rookie center Hasheem Thabeet to the D-League after he lost the backup center job on the team to Hamed Haddadi.  The #2 draft pick is the highest draft pick to be relegated to the D-League.  My original projection of Thabeet being Samuel Dalembert might have been a bit too generous.  [Ridiculous Upside]
  • Angelina Jolie has turned down the chance to make Wanted 2.  Why is this great news?  Because she has now agreed to star in a space thriller made by the fantastic director of Children of Men, Alfonso Cuaron.  [NY Mag]
  • Jaguars fans are demonstrating just how much they want their team to draft Tim Tebow.  [Sporting Blog]
  • The eight stages of beer drinking.  [Guyism]

What I’ve been reading today

Here is a collection of things that I came across through my RSS reader that I enjoyed the most.  Hey, something has to keep me busy at work.

  • A little list of the hotties of Curling.  No, seriously.  [Bleacher Report]
  • Why the Cavs could be in a real rough spot if LeBron James decides to move elsewhere this summer.  [NBA FanHouse]
  • There was a successful HGH test in the world of sports today.  That would be the first time that has happened.  The sport it happened in was rugby and that player was suspended.  What that means for the major sports going forward remains to be seen.  [ESPN]
  • ESPN has suspended Tony Kornheiser for his recent remarks about fellow colleague Hannah Storm.  [SportsByBrooks]
  • The top 30 Oscar Best Picture winners that guys should watch.  In spirit of the fact that a bro friendly movie is likely to win this year.  [BroBible]
  • For those of you that have trouble differentiating between your Kevin Martins.  [Fourth Place Medal]
  • A sequel to Happy Feet is on the way.  Yeah, I’m excited.  [What’s Playing]
  • UConn has had some big wins recently included those over highly ranked Villanova and West Virginia.  It looks like they have rallied and played themselves off of the bubble.  [College Basketball Nation]

Google’s homepage banner today is pretty awesome.
