The Morning After: February 9, 2011

With the Super Bowl over and college basketball still a month away from relevancy, this is quite possibly the worst time of the year. At least during the summer it’s nice out. Anyway, onto the links! Atlanta columnist asks if Vanilla Ice was busy in regards to rumors of Bon Jovi buying a portion of the Atlanta Falcons? An Arizona probation officer claims he was fired for supporting the legalization of weed. Publisher releases book claiming the Poles made money off of the death of Jews; outrage ensues. It’s getting more and more expensive to fly these days. Mexico is one massive clusterf_ck right now. 2 American teenagers were shot and killed the other day. After one bad tournament we get the pleasure of reading these, “Don’t Count out Tiger yet” articles. Does it really matter how your pool gets heated? Apparently some Russians aren’t down with Valentine’s Day. Since Arianna Huffington is all the rage this week, here’s an old Rolling Stone profile.

–Sad story in Atlanta yesterday. A 19-year-old was driving the wrong way on the interstate when he struck a tractor-trailer head-on. These photos are pretty crazy.

–I’m obviously a huge Nebraska fan, so while I have paid attention, some of you might have missed the crazy things that have transpired in Lincoln in the past 10 months.

–If you can’t trust a priest with your money, who can you trust?

–Can you imagine if this dude was a politician in America?

–UGA had better hope Isaiah Crowell was worth the hype. They’ve suspended their leading rusher from a year ago.

–Texas Tech signed perhaps its best class ever, so that means change is coming to Lubbock.

  1. Atlanta columnist asks if Vanilla Ice was busy in regards to rumors of Bon Jovi buying a portion of the Atlanta Falcons?

    Ohhhhh we’re halfway there…

  2. After one bad tournament we get the pleasure of reading these, “Don’t Count out Tiger yet” articles.

    Which are about as original as Tiger’s done articles

  3. Sad story in Atlanta yesterday. A 19-year-old was driving the wrong way on the interstate when he struck a tractor-trailer head-on.

    My 19 year old son decided to take his car up to college next year when he lives off of campus so any stories of teenagers getting in car accidents hit home. Also my 15 year old gets his permit in March when he turns 16.

  4. With the Super Bowl over and college basketball still a month away from relevancy, this is quite possibly the worst time of the year.

    Sportswise it is but I still get into college hoops before March. I don’t tune into the NBA until the playoffs. I also don’t watch much hockey until the playoffs either.

  5. Can you imagine if this dude was a politician in America?

    He would probably be a lock to get re-elected if he was.

  6. –Texas Tech signed perhaps its best class ever, so that means change is coming to Lubbock.

    Running two downs in a row?

  7. It’s getting more and more expensive to fly these days.

    In the 1940s trains controlled the market, they basically fleeced passengers into large fees and eventually by the 50s airplane travel became the trend.

    Now, rail is threatening again…

    They don’t know why he did it, but he was either on drugs/booze or he was committing suicide. There’s no way he was sober or in a clear state of mind.

  9. If the airlines where smart they’d invest in newer fuel efficient planes rather than flying the same tech out of the 70′s…
