Things To Read: Week In Review
Happy Friday, everybody.
Hoopism: Every NBA Slam Dunk Contest Video Visualization. This won the Internet for the week, and it's not even close. Very reminiscent of the Pitchfork scores graph, only not nearly as shoegaze-y.
Deadspin: The Worst Men In Sports. Click through if only to read Craggs' seriously incredible take-down of Colin Cowherd. I'd blockquote a portion, but this shit is even too racy for TUP. Oh yeah, the belt is secure.
Straight Bangin': "A Memo To Eddie House". You guys will love this post.
NBA Off-Season: Tim Duncan x "Arrested Development".
GQ: The '85 Bears during Super Bowl week.
Fanhouse: Shoals and Freeman nerd-out hard, compare NBA All-Stars to Joy Division songs.
Maxim: Drew with 10 ways to improve the Super Bowl. Includes: "7. Petition the Federal government to make Super Bowl Sunday a "weed holiday.""
The Lost Ogle: High school pictures of Blake Griffin dressed in lady's clothes.
Kotaku: What happens to Madden if there's a lockout?
Tribune: @MayorEmanuel Has Chicago Guessing, Everyone Laughing.
Yahoo: NASA spots 54 potentially life-friendly planets.
Tom Hanks Is A Lot Of Animals: Tom Hanks is a lot of animals.
Finally, a pair of Strokes-related tweets from Time Out Chicago music editor Brent DiCrescenzo:
And a music video. After the jump...The Strokes - Hard to Explain
That's probably it for me. Enjoy your weekend.
