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.

ChicagoAtNight1We’re unveiling a new final post for every day that we’ll put up for folks to comment on (yeah, right) and with what’s on the tube for the evening.  We’ll give you a run down of sports, entertainment, local titty bar specials and other things to watch for while you evade the kids or shrug off your work from the day.

Tonight, there’s actually a few things that might be worth watching on the sports calendar.  Nomar Garciaparra makes his first return to Fenway Park for the first time since being traded to the Cubs in 2004 (ugh).  UFC continues its countdown of the top fights with numbers 75-51 on Spike.  And, Tommy Boy (we’ll pretty much watch it every time) is on Comedy Central.  The full slate of MLB games and probable starters after the jump (courtesy MLB.com).

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.

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.
