No Loss of Power Here

Links that have nothing to do with power outages. OK, that will be the last “Super Bowl power outage” joke. I think. I’ll let the pros handle that.

rejected super bowl ads, linda hamilton and mario lopez. now that’s a good day.

Just links today, and I’m officially listed as questionable for a blog post tomorrow. But a decision won’t be made on whether I’m posting or not until later in the week. Right, Dwight Freeney? I’m interested in the Super Bowl because my wife and I are babyless for the night and we get to go [...]
