Huzzah! I'm an All-Star.
Huzzah! I'm an All-Star.

It's ALL-STAR weekend! One exciting, action packed weekend full of games that mean nothing with athletes who end up not really trying.  If you're keeping track at home, there are two - the Pro Bowl in Hawaii and the NHL ASG in Raleigh, NC.  I'm not too interested in either game, so guess I'll have time to take a crack at that ol' to-do list this weekend.

NHL News:

  • I once spent a week collecting the best of the worst pickup lines to write in an origami fortune teller. Apparently, I should have been following Garth Snow for the really, really bad pickup lines. [Lighthouse Hockey]

  • Celebrate - good times, COME ON! That's from averagejoe to you. I'm just the messenger now singing Kool and The Gang. Thanks. [kotaku]

  • Don't you just HATE that your doughnut isn't more portable? In a regular bag, a doughnut will get smashed and will stick to the napkin. There is also the risk that a doughnut left unattended will get stolen. This "Doughnut To-Go" contraption solves all the aforementioned problems, plus provides a nice lollipop holder. [Strapya World]

  • Game. Changer. Insomnia Cookies' slogan - "Late night cookie delivery to college campuses." [Insomnia Cookies]

  • A Haiku that expresses my last 15 years as a Titan's fan: [Shutdown Corner]

    Goodbye, Coach Fisher
    We've had many ups and downs,
    You'll - Oh look! Shiny!


"It's Murray!" The "Onion SportsDome" is back with the best summary of the Pro Bowl I have ever found. Ever.
