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.

Apologies for the lateness of the afternoon links today.  We were reading a really long, but informative article on another site.  And had a conversation.  Regardless, today was a short day because we’re running at half speed after not getting a ton of sleep last night due to the 5 a.m. airport drive today.  Tomorrow, we PROMISE to get you the MLB Power Rankings, Big XII Preview and some NFL info.  We’re looking at fantasy football, let us know if you’re interested in it.  Erin Andrews, just because we feel bad for her taking guff on all this ball stuff.  Hopefully, she’s watching…

We only know one married guy in Florida that read our site?  JPQ, did you destroy this hotel room?……..The Big O with a big check out of some chick’s backside.  He’s still got it!……..Senator paid $96 to keep family quiet of his mistress.  That’s the price of silence?……..Franken rising, Palin falling.  Somehow, we’re not surprised……..Yes!  The unemployed need more help!  Champion this cause!……..

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 played a decent front nine of golf yesterday and then got to the back and fell apart.  Four-somes that don’t let two-somes play-thru really piss us off.  Thus, we hit into them the entire back nine.  We also might have blown out a knee on the 18th tee so golf could be a trial the rest of the summer.  SEC West post coming up for you today and a litter of other info.  We’re working on convincing a friend to do a UFC 100 preview and we’ll let you know on that.  We stopped watching Heroes after season two, but still enjoy Hayden.

Obligatory Michael Jackson link. Nope, we haven’t seen any of the memorial but will catch a bit today……..Devil attacks man in Florida. JPQ, was this in your neighborhood?……..Mortgage fraud is growing rampant in the U.S. How do you pull that off?……..We don’t care for Maureen Dowd but this diary entry as Sarah Palin is pretty good………We think Palin is an absurd choice for the GOP, but it looks like we might actually be in the minority……..Captain Bankruptcy.  Uncle Sam bailed out the liquor maker.

We’re playing golf again today.  Enjoying the summer as much as possible.  Again, playing with commenter/contributor NickJ up in the land of cheese.  But worry not.  That’s why younglefty is on board now.  He’s got an NL East post coming up for you today and if you’re lucky, he’ll bring more.  We’ve prepared the usual and included a Phil Mickelson post, an SEC preview from a special guest contributor and a LeBron post.  We love the LeBron post.  People from Cleveland probably won’t.  In honor of our golf round, we give you Natalie Gulbis.  After the jump, Tommy Boy.

There’s a lender out there that is allowing you to pledge your soul as collateral. We did this to a kid in middle school.  Still have the piece of paper with Mike Lange’s soul on it……..Michael Jackson is getting buried without his brain? What the hell, man?  This story is like America’s version of Princess Diana……..Just in case you missed yesterday, McNair’s girlfriend purchased a gun two days prior to Saturday. And, he injury was fired at point blank range to her head.  So was one of McNair’s……..Ever wonder what the gap between the top 1% and the rest of the country is? Wonder no longer!……..Robert McNamara, architect of the Vietnam War, died yesterday. Many acheievements on that resume despite the debacle of Vietnam
