Linker Dumper: The last thread fell off the page but I can't resist pointing you to a very scary Oliver Kahn and this intersection of physics and football.

Macaque makes monkeys of hockey experts. Proof that the hockey "experts" know jack shit.

Also, rumours and speculation about a "merger" of the Rogers' Toronto Blue Jays and the MLSE Leafs and Raptors. I don't know, but I really want the Teachers' Union out of the equation. With them, Leafs will never win.

From MrF's link: "# Work hours are often irregular; travel may be extensive. # Career-ending injuries are always a risk for athletes." Well duh. Taxpayer money really well spent. Goddam: That is terrible but, on behalf of StarFucker, I would like to point out that the Poland manager dropped Jerzy Dudek from his squad.

Here's an eight-part soccer game (or an octathlon, I guess) that'll provide minutes and minutes of enjoyment.

Do you have a PS2 and Hot Shots Golf Fore? I found an online community that plays various tournaments. I currently have the record for the 'back nine' on Samurai golf course in the Chipper's Delight Challenge.

Not a link so much, but Theo Epstein showed up randomly at the second Pearl Jam show last week and played Rocking in the Free World with the band. Snapped a few shots. Theo's the one in the PJ jacket and wig. Picture copyright me - JG Enterprises Corp, and whatnot.

They need to make close captioned versions for those of us unfamiliar enough with the players out of uniform or watching on such tiny screens!

That Crouch-Lewsey ad is pretty cute.

Hey, it says here you can help heal Wayne Rooney's foot with just your mouse.

I agree bill, I have no idea who anyone is in that video is, but there are about four or five more of them on that site.

Holy crap, Mefi got a chicobangs and a yerfatma sighting in this thread. I point it out 'cause it's the only exciting thing about that FPP.

Squealy, did you see him celebrate his first in the Jamaica match? Dude, practice is supposed to make you better!

I'm sure even a cursory Googling would find you one of those.

posted by yerfatma at 03:36 PM on June 06

bill, go to You Tube and search for Crouch, there's loads of videos. Over here in Merry Olde England we're all doing the Crouch. It's a bleeding honest-to-goodness phenomenom. From zero to hero. Come on Crouchy.

Does this qualify as sports-related?

Barely. I'll let it go because of "shirt-lifter". Which I don't understand. But upon edit, I do.

Are you ready for December 21, 2012?

MrFrisby, I am more than ready. That is some cool cosmic shit.

MrFrisby, when that magical Mayan day dawns, the world will indeed change as we know it...SportsFilter will suddenly shrink to roughly 3,000 members, all of whom can write in coherent fashion, with nary a misspelled word among them.

Actually, I meant to link this page, but if you clicked the 2012 A.D. link at the bottom of the other one, then you already saw this. The weird thing for me is, while I was in bible college, some 'theologists' and I predicted the second coming of Christ would be in 2012. Twelve years later and after losing my religion, I found this and almost shit myself. TBH, think of what our member count will be by then. Cutting down to 3K would be some major purging. Not that there is anything wrong with that, or that we couldn't use it now.

This Pepsi ad is ridiculous--Sumo!!!--but wisely just the right length at 63 seconds. Possibly from UK/Europe a few years ago and not brand new but I never saw it before my wife(!) passed it along just now.

MrFrisby, Or as I have shortened in my mind, Fritz. Reminds me of a cartoon I saw many moons ago and highly recomend to those not easily offended. Fritz the cat. IMDb If you have the time check out the movie trailer.

Here is another amazing one from the break. After you watch this one, click the link to watch the nike ad, it is pretty funny.
