Saturday Links: Shocking! Mr. Kessel Gets Picked Last Edition

Those eyes just draw you in...
Those eyes just draw you in...

There isn't much on the internet that doesn't involve the All-Star game in some fashion.  I'm thinking about creating a rumors website just to keep me busy.

Blues News:

  • Our Guardian is here! Our Guardian is here! And, phew, he is a lot better than we all had anticipated. The glowing yellow eyes creep me out a bit, though. A big, embellished bow to luvhockey for leaking the Guardian a couple days ago. [Blues]

  • Backes picked near the end of the All-Star draft. [Post Dispatch]

  • You know, it's been a while since we've heard anything about new investors. What's that? They still aren't ready? Oh, okay. [Post Dispatch]

  • Question: Will it be a physical All-Star game? Backes: "Ask me after my draft position." I love that. [Post Dispatch]

Hockey News:

  • Down Goes Brown with a few events to add to All-Star weekend. [DGB]

  • Jersey Fouls: Note the number of Blues' fans failures. [Puck Daddy]

  • Mmmmmm. Waffles. Wafflegate may be wrapped up [in bacon?] for now. [Puck Daddy]

  • Taking a break from the All-Star coverage [sort of, wait, not at all], Wysh uses his time to understand the mind of an autograph hound. [Puck Daddy]

  • A new car for being picked last? Man, is the NHL soft. Phil Kessel is picked last. [Puck Daddy]

Other Stuff:

  • The Girl Scouts will only have 6 varieties of cookies for sale. I'll get my two boxes and then spend the rest of my money on kettle corn popcorn from the Boy Scouts. If you haven't tried the popcorn, um, what's wrong with you? [WSJ]

  • Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? I'm going to go hone my deductive reasoning skills and go play this on facebook for the rest of the weekend. [The Atlantic]

  • Sports trash talk from two museum directors will make your day. [Shutdown Corner]
