TGIF Linkage 05/08

** Who’s taking the news that Manny Ramirez cheated the hardest? It might just be ESPN’s Bill Simmons. And the man who I’m agreeing with on this? LA Times columnist Bill Plaschke.

** Jason Whitlock says A-Rod book author has credibility issues. Of course, that assumes Selena Roberts has any credibility.

** Walk-off home run is disallowed because of an apparent rules infraction, BUT WAIT, the ruling was wrong. Sticklers strike again.

** Check out Udonis Haslem’s tattoo. What would happen if he gets traded?

** Fargo Forum (N.D.) columnist Mike McFeely resigned from the paper to take a radio gig at KFGO.

** Jimmy Fallon (I MISS CONAN) won a Webby Award as the Internet’s “Person of the Year.”

** New sitcom on NBC, called Community, will star Joel McHale (from E’s The Soup), Chevy Chase, and John Oliver (The Daily Show). Damn, this could actually be funny. The link features a video teaser.

** The Centenary (La.) men’s basketball program was penalized by the NCAA and is banned from even competing for a chance to play in the national tournament next season.

(The bad news didn’t stop there. Summit League commissioner Tom Douple said the Gents would also be banned from the conference tournament in 2010).

OK, I realize I’ll get crap for this choice. But I admit it, I’m a fan of Kanye West. Everything he does is with purpose, whether it’s a song lyric, a political statement, a unique wardrobe or whatever. That’s what I like about him; he’s not afraid to take a stand.

Plus his music videos are always interesting. With that said, enjoy “Heartless” by Kanye West.
