Alyssa MilanoPoints of Interest is the daily link dump for your morning or afternoon commute in and out of Souvenir City.  We’ll be throwing together some other stops from out there in blogdome and the interwebs to peak your interest.  Some of them will actually be what some might consider educational.  Most of them, are going to everything but that.

Sadly, we don’t have a Big XII preview for you yet.  NickJ will be receiving 57 lashes for it (read: he has to work 12 hours today).  And, we’ve gotta drive some folks to the airport this morning so there’s no telling when Chicago traffic will put us back in front of the computer.  So, we’re bring in this post and two more for you to start the day.  Hopefully there’s a MLB Blockbuster out there for us to talk about.  Alyssa Milano in honor of her Tweeting us a link.  *fawns*

Man dies after falling into tank of chocolate. If you’re gonna go, that’s probably the best way……..British man receives inheritance, gets drunk and gives most of it away.  In an airport……..Greenpeace got ballsy.  They put a banner over Mt. Rushmore for global warming.  Freakin’ tree-huggin’ hippies……..And, the news wave of covering the Obama children on politcal issues officially begins.  Wake us when they can legally buy a pack of cigarettes……..We really don’t like posting from Slate, but this is.  The sequel to the $750 billion stimulus we already passed.

Slow day with the exception of the McNair news breaking that it’s not being ruled a murder-suicide.  So glad that’s over.  Condolences to the McNair family, *mumbles under breath* to the other one.  Can we please move on from that story now?  Hope you enjoyed the SEC preview as we’ll be doing the Big 12 tomorrow; again splitting into the two divisions.  Pac-10 will be done by us next week.  Big East doesn’t deserve it.  Jessica Michibata is a F1 WAG of Jenson Button.

These is absolutely ridiculous, Philadelphia.  There has to be some sort of consequences for the owners or proprietors of the pool……..They won’t let hookers get bank accounts in Amsterdam.  That’s absurd!  They can’t put the money in the mattress! It might get messy!……..We tweeted about this earlier but, Google could put the nail in the Microsoft coffin as they’re coming out with an Operating System……..Four pieces of good news for Republicans……..

After the jump, Magic Johnson and Kobe just not being too bright.

We’ve still got more posts coming today but we wanted to get the afternoon linkage out to you before you left work.  Is it a slow week at the office?  We’ve noticed a significant decrease in people on blogs (not just ours).  We’re probably going to slow it down for the rest of the week with most people being off on Friday.  Most likely have some off-topic, non-sports posts on Friday.  Joanna Krupa just might be our Megan Fox.  Can’t get enough of her, so we’re posting her again.

If you’ve never seen Streetcar Named Desire, you should.  Karl Madlen won an academy award for it and unfortunately passed today at 97……..We might be accused of being Republicans from time to time.  But not with this one.  We agree that taxes need to be raised to combat the deficit……..Whoa.  TonySopranoCare?  That’s what they’re calling the Obama healthplan?  Wouldn’t go that far. But here’s a list of the top five promises that are broken with this plan……..Putin told his country to stop gambling an drinking today.  Just don’t stop producing vodka for the rest of the world please……..If you’re going to rob a gas station, make sure you don’t run out of gas on the getaway……..Internet filters in China now blocking pictures of Garfield the cat.  He’s so raunchy.  Gives Paris Hilton a run for her money.

Two links after the jump and more FAIL videos.  Oh, and a NSFW shot of Joanna Krupa.

Ok.  So we bricked on the PM Points of Interest yesterday.  We’re making up for it today by treating you to the start of our college football previews and predictions.  We shot an 88 on Monday and a 98 on Tuesday at a much tougher course.  We got drunk on Tuesday we explains (but doesn’t excuse) our score and the biff on the POI yesterday.  Today, we’re back in action.  College football.  College hoops.  MLB.  NHL Free Agency.  NBA Free Agency.  Wimbledon.  And, the 4th of July.  We’ve got posts from all over the place today.  One errand to run early morning but that’s it.  And we let you wake up next to Rosaria Cannavo.  Just don’t tell Christian Panucci (ask Ty Duffy who he is).

Al Franken has made a Super Majority in the Senate. We used to like Al when we read his book and we were super liberal in college.  As we’ve gravitated towards the middle, we don’t.  Scary……..That North Korea threat has been averted.  For now……..Uncovering what really happened in Honduras.  Seems that we didn’t quite get all the facts on Mr. Zelaya the first time we read about this……..Have you guys seen Bing?  The new search engine?  Was unaware it was a Microsoft creation. Kinda stirring the pot a little……..Ever skipped out on a tab?  How about three times in one week?

After the jump, a few more links and the reason we don’t cover horse racing all that much…in video format, of course!  Also, a video that for some reason just cracks us up.  The version of Bohemian Rhapsody is hilarious and the slide that these kids are coming out of looks like a giant wang.  We got bored and the internet helped us last night.  Thank you, internet.

pageant_win_michellePoints of Interest is a daily weekend link dump.  We’ll be throwing together some other stops from out there in blogdome and the interwebs to peak your interest.  Some of them will actually be what some might consider educational.  Most of them, are going to everything but that.

We’re still putting the finishing touches on moving but we went ahead and made sure that we had some programming today.  Not much going on yesterday other than baseball.  Today, you do have Wimbledon to work with.  Better yet, get out and enjoy the sun.  We’ll be in the pool this afternoon trying to make sure we don’t look like a token white guy.  And, we’re hitting the driving range this evening as we’re playing golf on both Monday and Tuesday with commenter and contributor NickJ85.  Gotta love the summer in the Midwest.  Because winter sucks.  Michelle Nunes does not.  She was our waitress at Hooters once.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, the Jackson family did issue a message to the fans on behalf of the departed.  We’re still rockin’ the MJ tunes on the iPod while doing the touch-up paint……..India is issuing ID cards to every single one of their citizens and placing them into a database.  Yup.  All 1.1 billion of them.  And you thought the line at the DMV here was bad……..Men in New York are charged with taking their passengers on a wild police chase.  First, we’d thank them.  Then, we’d tell the people that bitched that a cab would have been the same……..Arguments for a single bank regulator to prevent another credit crisis.  Step in the right direction if you ask us.

Speaking of golf… After the jump, a video of one of our favorite pranks.  We’ll have to get a job at a driving range to pull it off.

We’ve got the grill fired up for the final top at our current location and we’re getting set to watch the Cross-Town Classic.  If you noticed any spelling errors in today’s posts, it’s because we’re day drinking.  Andy Hutchins even caught us being stupid on the Twitter.  We really can’t think of anyone better than Keeley to send you into the weekend.  She’s English too, so that finishes our theme for the week.

Last MJ link for the day.  There’s a secret library of 100 songs that could be released soon. We know we’re buying that……..A nice little chart showing you fees by airlines. We haven’t flown since last August.  Conquering that fear shortly……..A stop in Dallas yields 100 pounds of pot in a casket. Nope, not Nate Newton.  New guy……..The Sun-Times continues to be the right leaning paper here in Chicago. But, there are some valid points here……..The House won their vote on the Global Warming bill. Move it on up the ladder now.  We still don’t think it passes.

After the jump, the child bicycle crashes compilation to send you off to the weekend.  Set to music from Roger Rabbit.

We’ve got a post coming up to end the day on Whitlock’s response to Jim Brown and Tiger Woods.  We’ve long thought that Jim Brown steps way out of his bounds when telling other athletes how to run their lives.  It’s 2009 Jim, not 1965.  Times change.  Information flow is greater.  Regardless, we had a bit of a slow day but did a lot of reading once we woke up without an alarm.  First time since we started this little place that we’ve done that.  The alarm thing, not the reading.  We’re continuing the theme of English soccer WAGs as we’re watching the footy while writing this.  Anastasia Kosenkova is Aliaksandr Hleb’s wife.  Don’t ask us who he is.

Sad.  Farrah Fawcett died today.  She was 62 years old. Bad things come in threes remember.  McMahon, Thomas, Fawcett……..The Dems are freaking out.  Al Gore bailed on them.  Now, they have no clue how to get this global warming bill passed.  Brainsplosion!……..If they can’t get that bill passed, what does that say about the success rate of the healthcare bill?……..An optomistic point of view.  Write off 2009, get over it.  Look at 2010 and see what you can do better for your investments then……..The FCC can’t be happy about this.  Porn has officially come to the iTunes store. It was only a matter of time……..Don’t send your children to the public library to use the computers.  They might run into a guy like this.

After the jump, a photo from the WAG party that was thrown in Anastasia’s honor.
