Arianny CelestePoints 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.

It is upon us!  UFC 100, the Super Bowl of MMA is tomorrow and we are jacked for it.  We’ll be at the bar tomorrow night with some friends to watch it so it’s going to be rather quiet around here for you.  We’re waiting on a preview from glove but he’ll have it for you later today.  Ring girl Arianny Celeste for your enjoyment.

Woman on toilet accidently shot in leg.  Relations to Plaxico?……..So, Barry not so much pro-choice anymore.  According to his talks with the Pope.  Lip service?……..This is awful.  Family who adopted 12 kids, most with special needs, found slain in their home.  What the hell is wrong with people?……..HuffPo a partisan defender of the Obama White House? You decide……..Those crazy Germans.  German badgers that is.  Drunk in the street.

Apologies… AGAIN.  Little power outage in the Chicago Area this morning so our internet hasn’t been up.  It’s Friday!  And it’s summer!  We hope that many of your employers are giving you summer hours.  Which means by the time we get this up, many of you will be about an hour from getting out of work.  Hey, that’s a good thing.  We’re waiting on our Big XII writers today and hope to have that preview for you.  And UFC 100!  Katy Perry for your viewing enjoyment.

For those of you married folk out there, be careful when complaining about the wife’s cooking.  She might attack you……..This is why you don’t do running of the bulls.  You might get gored to death……..Cops arrested some guys dressed as Superman and Batman in Times Square……..disecting the $17 trillion divorce we’ve got on the horizon with China……..McNair story only gets stranger.  He taped suicide prevention ads the week before his girfriend went totally bat-shit crazy.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend.  We enjoyed some fireworks and woke up a little hungover for the Roddick and Federer match on Sunday morning.  Was there any doubt that Brooklyn Decker was going to be here this morning?  We’re currently investigating an issue with our Twitter account that has us unable to post anything on there for you guys.  Hopefully it’s resolved soon.  Until we know the details, e-mail us with anything at the usual spot.  SouvenirCityBlog at gmail dot com. We’ll tackle the Steve McNair story today and have another college football conference preview today too.  That preview is going to be done by our newest writer, younglefty.

Our fear of flying is well documented but this airline has a nude safety video.  That would go a long way to easing our mind during flight……..Oh Iowa.  Some things will never change we suppose.  A Palin 2012 sign? Already?……..The tone of this article is rather smug, but it’s definitely right.  The U.S. did win another race.  The Green Technology race……..Honduras won’t even let their former President’s jet land in his home country.  This situation is just begging to go completely off the reservation sooner rather than later……..You know, this makes a lot of sense.  Elimate the car dealers.  Why can’t we just go to the manufacturer’s web site and order direct?

After the jump, more Brooklyn and your standard FAIL video.

The working folk have us beat with their alarm clocks but we were up early this morning.  Likely a nap in the future before venturing out of the basement and into the outside world.  Also, the CTA is the reason that Chicago will likely not get the Olympics in 2016.  We took it this morning for the first time in 7 months during the morning rush.  Almost lost it.  We put up this picture becuase of the news about her today but personally, we give her a “meh” on the hotness scale.  Onto the links!

After everything that has happened to them over the years, the big tobacco companies are going no where any time soon…….So that thing we were worried about this morning that we thought wouldn’t happen.  Well, it might……..Why are there so many speed bumps in D.C.?  Are you all bad drivers? We know a few……….We watch the New World Order when we were kids.  But what in the world is the Obama World Order?……..Recession, good economy.  Typically, to come out of the latter and into the former you need a big boom. It was real estate last time.  What will it be this time?

Kobe Bryant now has four NBA championships and one without Shaquille O’Neal.  We’re not going to pretend that we can place him correctly in the history of greatness in the NBA.  Actually, yes, we are going to pretend.

Is it about championships?  All-Star appearances?  MVPs?  Other individual awards?  Or is it about the stuff that you can’t measure in a box score or trophy case?  Making teammates better, being a good leader or making sure that the locker room chemistry is where it needs to be are all parts of evaluating a player from a historical perspective.  So, we’ll give this our best shot and attempt to place Kobe among the greatest of all time.

Now, we’ll be fair and limit this to guys we’ve seen play.  Bill Russell, George Mikan and the late 1970s greats aren’t going to be included because we don’t think we have an accurate picture on how to place them.  We’ll call this from 1980 and later.

You can call us homers or whatever you want to, but Michael Jordan is at the top of our list.  That’s where we’ll try and get this started.

We’re playing golf this weekend, so the range is a must again today.  That right over there is the 8th hole of the place we’ll be attempting to break 95 at on Sunday.  Two dozen balls should be good.  Your standard picture is after the jump. The Penguins are champs!  So glad that the dynasty didn’t continue in Detroit.  Max Talbot should have won the Conn Smythe.  We’ll have something come up for that later.  We’ve got another guest post today as well from our resident MMA writer.

The space shuttle isn’t going off this weekend.  Good thing they found it before we had a problem on our hands.  Houston already had to endure the signing of Rex Grossman yesterday……..China doesn’t like portions of this sanction levied against North Korea by the U.N. Handle with care.  That’s all we can say…….Bush Sr. celebrated his birthday by jumping out of a plane.  Points for creativity, old man………..An interview with what looks to be the new top dog in Iran.  He’s pretty trite in his answers and they seem a little caluclated. It is said that he and Obama have similarities and should mesh well.  Your call….

You’re free to go.  In a few hours, that is.  Until then, enjoy wasting the remaining hours of your Friday afternoon by picking up what we’re putting down!  This is likely to be our last post until tomorrow as we’re going to be traveling most of the day.  As stated earlier, we’re excited for game seven tonight (thus the puck bunny) so we need to get to our final destination rather quickly.  Golf this weekend, hope you all have something planned as it’s summer time.  We lacked on posts a little today due to an intense discussion over at TBL.  We’ll link it for your consumption.  Link us with your best at SouvenirCityBlog@gmail.com.

Iranian election is starting to get heated.  There’s already one claim to victory……VIDEO of an elaborate drug tunnel in Mexico. Actually pretty interesting. Wonder if drugs were the only thing smuggled through here……Sarah Palin is pissed at David Letterman. By her conception of time, her fifteen minutes of fame will last for over 2000 years…..Are we about to see a sudden spike in interest rates?  What does this mean for the economy?……Taxes, taxes, taxes.  Wait a minute, we didn’t Wonder if it takes as long to sort out at 2000 did here…… have to pay taxes on this last year, did we?
