A few links to get us out of our FIRE ERIC WEDGE malaise.
(incidentlally, if you start, or have started, fireericwedge.com and need a writer, holler at your boy!)
A couple of good ones via the Big Lead roundup, first this guy, who is sick of Lou Holtz’s blatant pom-pom waving, and a blurb about a new ESPN college football song being written by Satellite party, 50 Cent, and Kelly Rowland. Is this going to replace We’re Comin’ to Your Citaaaaay? who knows. (Chuckie Hacks, MTV)
Whats the best sporting day of the year? We think it is the first Saturday in October. College football in full swing, and the start of playoff baseball. Maybe you prefer Final Four saturday, or the first day of the NFL playoffs? Weigh in with your opinion over at the Big Picture.
The Pig Pen ranks the American League’s best uniforms. We think the Tigers’ should have been #1.
Have you been thinking to yourself, hey, I wonder whatever happened to Jose Offerman? Well here is your answer, he is bopping around the minor leagues and attacking pitchers when he gets beaned. Attacking them with his bat. No, really, we aren’t kidding (Larry Brown Sports)
Our long national nightmare is finally over. Drew Gooden is shaving off his “neckstache” (the FanHouse)
He his 5oo freaking home runs and all he got was THIS?? (Our Book of Scrap)
WCT posts link dumps whenever they feel lazy. If you have written something interesting/witty/provocative and would like it to be included in a link post email us at wastingcompanytime[at]gmail.com.

NFL players continue to ride motorcycles, and unfortunately, they continue to crash them. Kellen Winslow, Ben Roethlisberger, and now LaVar Arrington. Speaking of which, where did Arrington’s career go wrong? At Penn State, he was the best LB we had ever seen. Now, just a few years later he can’t make an NFL roster (The FanHouse)
Brett Hull, whom we actually thought was pretty good, was given the axe by NBC (Awful Announcing)
Unfortunately, we may have to turn the “days since someone in Pacman Jones’ entourage shot at someone at a strip club” counter back down to zero (The Big Lead)
We love golf as much as anyone, but what does it say about a sport when the guy who looks like he could be a decathlete gets beaten by the fat guy burning heaters all day? (The Star-Telegram)
And speaking of golf, there is a sentiment floating around that Tiger Woods has “lost his magic.” First of all, I don’t think that Aaron Baddeley would agree. Baddeley, Woods’ playing partner Sunday, entered the final round alone in first place. While playing alongside Tiger, Baddely proceeded to triple-bogey himself out of the lead on the first hole, and went on to shoot an 80. Secondly, if any other golfer on earth had finished second in the first two majors of the season, and was working on a stretch when his finishes in major championships dating back to mid 2005 were 1st, 4th, 3rd, missed cut, 1st, 1st, 2nd, 2nd, we don’t think anyone would be questioning his “magic.” (Baltimore Sun)
We hate all things related to this society’s obsession with American Idol. So you can imagine our response when we heard that somebody named Jordin Sparks may sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl (The FanHouse)
From the “not a minute too soon” department, the Orioles have fired Sam Perlozzo. If Joe Girardi is smart he will steer clear (ESPN.com)
