TGIF Linkage 12/19

QUICK REMINDER: I’ll have a live blog of tonight’s USD vs. Minnesota-Duluth men’s basketball game

For our pre-Christmas TGIF Linkage, let’s bounce from movies to pop culture to politics and, of course, sports.

Let’s get to it.

** The Karate Kid would sure be weird if Mr. Miyagi spoke fluent English, wouldn’t it?

** Jack Black is slated to appear in an episode of The Office on Feb. 1. Surprisingly, I think this is a brilliant idea.

** Just in case you haven’t seen this video 800 times already this week….

** What’s more unlikely then Gene Chizik leaving Iowa State for Auburn? How about Phillip Fulmer reportedly being interested in Iowa State?

** Upon reading this news, I have one question: WHY?

** According to this list, the New York Yankees are less hated than the New England Patriots. Was this before or after the Yankees spent $90 million on A.J. Burnett?

** Myron Medcalf of the Minneapolis Star Tribune talks all things Gopher basketball in his latest reporter’s notebook video.

** Great story form ESPN.com’s Kyle Whelliston about little-known Virginia Military Institute, which currently leads the nation in scoring.

** Sports Illustrated has the following piece about Northern State men’s basketball coach Don Meyer.

** Is there a budding scandal on the Price Is Right? People start to wonder these kinds of things when a contestant gets the Showcase bid EXACTLY RIGHT.

TGIF Recommended Tune

To be fair, I heard this song the other day and now I can’t get it out of my head. Plus, you can’t go wrong with Ashlee Simpson (at least the pre-Pete Wentz version).
