Wednesday Links: Pizza and French Fries Edition

I'm getting really tired of seeing headlines like "St. Louis' heroics spark comeback" or something and then I click it, disappointed that it's about Martin St. Louis.  Even when the Blues aren't in the playoffs, I stupidly think it's about them. Has anybody else had that happen to them or am I the only idiot in this joint?
