Man, I hate it when a sale day gets close and the more I look at the weather, the more I realize its gonna rain and throw my entire layout off.  So it looks like I’ll be spending today setting up tents rather than items.  BOO! I feel like the Colombian soccer team.  Uh, hey guys, don’t you remember what happened to some of the 1994 team members after that failure?  Yeah, let’s try not to repeat that, ok Colombian fans?  Also, Poland fell to Senegal and Russia locked their place in the Round of 16 after beating Egypt.  Uruguay can lock their place down today as well. And Portugal and Spain both get a chance to get a win, as they face some weak opposition.

Now that’s a soldier!

Well the Astros were bound to lose eventually. But it seems to happen all too often that their bats go to sleep when Verlander is on the hill.  Way to go guys.  And in the CWS, we will have to wait yet again to see Arkansas-Texas Tech after another day filled with delays.  Texas was bounced from the tourney and Mississippi State advanced in their winners bracket by drilling North Carolina.

Guitarist Chet Atkins was born on this date. As was super-fucking-badass Audie Murphy, National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen, Beach Boy Brian Wilson, Commodore Lionel Richie, brilliant actor John Goodman, Speaker Of The House Munster Butch Patrick, high-flying wrestler Koko B Ware,  actress Nicole Kidman, and possibly the second-best real wrestler of all-time Cael Sanderson.

I don’t want to hear one negative word. Not one!

It is also the date on which the Romans and Visigoths joined up to defeat Atilla the Hun on the Catalunian Plains, Oxford received its charter, Queen Victoria ascended the throne at the age of 18, the telegraph was patented, Andrew Johnson announced the purchase of Alaska, Lizzie Borden was acquitted, the NAACP was incorporated, Jesse Owens, running for The Ohio State University, set the 100m indoor world record, Muhamad Ali was convicted of refusing induction into the armed forces, Juan Peron returned to Argentina from exile, “Chinatown” debuted at the box office, so did what is arguably a perfect movie in “Jaws”.  Jesus, so did “Blues Brothers”, and OJ Simpson was arraigned in the murder of his wife and her “friend” Ron Goldman.

Heady stuff there, even if the birthday roster was a bit “meh”.  Anyhoo, on to…the links!

Guess what I got caught doing?

Please let this happen. Please let this happen. Please let this happen. I don’t know if there’s really anything else to say.

Hey, imagine that: as the economy continues to improve, a bunch of deadbeats are going back to work. Gee, makes you wonder how much of the previous years’ payments were fraudulent.  Actually, don’t think about that, it’ll only lead to depression.

Teacher. Students. Sex. You know the drill. But in this case, she only got 30 days.

OK, now do the rest of the United Nations. Because it isn’t much better.

Ah, travel league softball…never change.

Keep it classy, softball dad!

See if you can find all the double-standards for the Kings Men in this piece. It’ll be like “Highlights”, but for libertarians.

If he did it, I hope they spring him up by his nuts until they shrivel up and die. I really don’t have anything else to say.

A pretty big catalog.  But I decided to go with this one.

Hope y’all enjoyed this War And Peace-length version of the links.  Go have a great day!
