Monday Links - Ross Noble

You'll sense a theme with this week's videos. But you'll find no theme in this week's links . . . that I know of.

So much going on in this picture. And yet the game didn't count. And yet, those uniforms are so fucking sweet.

My wife is sick and I've been drinking. This concludes your prelude.

By the way, it's really nice that there's hockey on . . . and I can do a FULL LINKS POST on a Monday. Have at it!


  • The Blues (sorta) played yesterday, and lost 4-3 in overtime to the Blue Jackets. I'll save the RBR nicknames for the regular season, but here's her recap. [SLGT]
  • The Bee Jays' fan reaction is a bit weird, as they actually played two games yesterday and it includes the stuff from their game with the Hurricanes. But here it is. [The Cannon]
  • The new Blues away sweater made its' unofficial debut last night as well. And it is a beauty. [SLGT FanShots]
  • Prospect Sunday! Brian has all the 411 on Blues prospects. [SLGT; SLGT; SLGT; SLGT]
  • Someone was able to get cells to formulate into a Blue Note in a petri dish. Pretty cool. And yes, of course this comes from Reddit, because who else has enough of a life to do shit like this apart from Redditors? [SLGT FanShots]


  • The Sabres players and brass are saying that the team isn't tanking for Connor McDavid, but the fans seem to want them to. [Puck Daddy]
  • Several KHL teams apparently have been in on Ryan Johansen amid his contract squabbles with the Blue Jackets, and one of them--CSKA Moscow--apparently has offered $5MM for one season of the young Jackets forward. Guys, let's be glad Jaden Schwartz isn't in this situation. [TSN]
  • Is there an Emoji for "Fuck Detroit"? If so, it should've been busted out for the Red Wings Emoji preview. [Puck Daddy]


  • Remember all those remote-controlled cars, trucks, helicopters and other shit people had when you were a kid? Well, a Canadian used a bunch of remote-controlled construction equipment to dig out a basement for his home. So. Sweet. (S/T to CrossCheckRaise) [Auto Blog]
  • Liam Neeson is a badass. He's killed a lot of people in his recent films. Here's a map. (S/T to Kate) [Vox]


Our theme this week . . . British/Irish comedy. We'll start with a man from the hometown of my favorite soccer team, Newcastle United . . . one Ross Noble, talking about faces on muffins:

"That's a face. Next muffin."

So . . . I'm gonna see the one and only John Paul Jones play mandolin with some indie alt-country stars this evening and I am SUPER excited about this, but I'll still be doing tomorrow's links. So send me stuff:

And expect Beyond Checkerdome Episode 53 to be around later this week. Maybe Wednesday!
