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.

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.

Late breaking news last night with Shaq leaving the desert for the mistake on the Lake.  We wanted to make sure and include a whole section of links for Ed Thomas from yesterday so we’ll have that for you below.  And, believe it or not, we did some reading and have a post on the soccer match from yesterday.  We’ve said our piece about everything yesterday but the U.S.A. victory deserves a definite mention.  Tonight is the NBA Draft so there’s going to be some major input on that today as well.  Who said the summer was boring?  It’s definitely hot in here with Aida Yespica.

Kirk Ferentz with a few words on Ed Thomas……..The Des Moines Register with their remembrance of the AP Head Coach……..Finally, the NBC affiliate in the Des Moines area has some photos, ex-players and current commentators reactions on yesterday’s events……..First it’s stadiums that get sponorship and naming rights.  Now, it’s subway stations in NYC? Huh?……..Quote from this article:  “But the more a potential fix affects them personally, the less interested they are in supporting it.”  Yup.  Couldn’t agree more……..Extending the nominees for best picture to 10 nominees?  Really?  That’s just too many.

After the jump, the photo of the day.

Hope your weekend was outstanding and you got to spend some time with the old man or that your kids bought you something other than socks.  We had an outstanding Crawfish boil and our head still hurts from the ensuing bar trip.  We also rediscovered how fun it is to bet on the ponies at the racetrack.  The U.S. Open finishes today and Tiger is no where to be found.  NBC can’t be happy about that.  Still, Phil has a small chance to pull off a miracle as he’s 6 back of the leader.  There’s a chance a movie review is coming today but we’ll for sure comment on the Kobe Bryant piece we read in SI in between packing up all our stuff for the move.  This piece over here is Joanna Krupa.  Your funny video of the day after the jump.

Obama’s approval rating is starting to tank. We think it has nothing to do with Iran but rather all of the money he’s been spending lately.  Amazing what changes in six months time……..Speaking of Iran, there’s now a Newsweek journalist that’s been detained……..The good news in the reporter detainee department is that this guy escaped the Taliban after being held captive for about 7 months……..We swear we’re not in the business of bashing the President but we can’t find anything that says positive things about him.  The newest gripe is his failure to follow through with the transparency he promised……..We don’t need to borrow any money yet but it looks like it will be at a higher interest rate when we do……..Our weird link for today:  Google Street view catches a mugging.

This is the newest (and hopefully, last) MVPuppet commercial from Nike.  We really enjoyed the “Three Championship Rings” one when we first saw it.  This one is even better.  Remember, we’re Kobe guys.  However, we do hope that these motivate LeBron to stay focused on what happens on the floor and not off of it.  He’s going to win sooner than later.

Christina Milian everyone.  So happy we’re going to the game tomorrow.  This all baseball schedule is killer.  Especially when only four teams played last night.  We’ll probably have one or two posts left for the remainder of the day.  However, we have a friend who recently discovered a treasure chest from the 1980s filled with old NES, Sega and other 8-bit system games.  There’s a strong possibility that we pay him a visit tonight.  Perhaps we’ll put together some posts on old school video games for you all tomorrow.  NickJ might be taking over for us tomorrow, we’re still not sure.  But we’ll be sure to have some programming for you.

Mark Cuban actually recommended this piece.  It’s pretty insightful as far as the direction that video is going on the web…….Awesome.  And we’ve been using Zicam for some time now to fight our colds.  Looks like we won’t be able to smell anything soon…….We read Drudge for bits and pieces.  We hope this isn’t some propaganda designed to make us dislike Barry.  This is scary if it’s actually going to happen.  We don’t like it…….Don’t feel bad MySpace workers.  Our former employer laid off a little less than 30% of their staff.  You’ll recover…….The Obama healthcare plan.  And, how he plans on getting it past all of the Republicans. There isn’t a dustpan big enough………

off the chartsSome credit is due to the NHL for putting together an entertaining and competitive Stanley Cup Playoffs this year.  The fans and ratings completely agree with us.  The Stanley Cup Finals had their highest rating in 36 years this past week.  That is a welcome sign for hockey fans in the U.S.  Yes, we realize you only live above the Mason-Dixon line for the most part.

Still, we’re glad this is happening.  As great as Versus has been on coverage, NBC is terrible.  We’d like to see ESPN bring back hockey night in America. They have a decent studio team that can do a pre-game show and Gary Thorne has always been one of our favorite hockey announcers.  Let’s get him back in the booth.

The coverage will be enhanced by what’s on the ice.
