Tuesday's Tidbits

The Links

-Today's link is sent in by... ME! I saw this picture over at the Uni Watch Blog and couldn't help but want to share it with the world. Check out Mark Sanchez' helmet. Sanchez was the Jets first round draft pick, and should compete for the starting QB job this season. Good times in the Big Apple.

-Lisa R. sent in this video which shows 5 very talented young girls singing the National Anthem at a Texas Tech/Texas men's basketball game. If this doesn't give you goosebumps you might want to check your pulse.


-Two upsets last night in the Association. The Orlando Magic went into Boston and defeated the Celtics 95-90. The Magic iced the game on free throws by J.J. "Mariano Rivera" Redick. Yeah I said it. J.J. had 12 points in his second consecutive start for Orlando.

-Behind 28 points and 10 rebounds from Yao Ming, Houston went to the Staples Center and beat the Lakers 100-92. Kobe Bryant scored 32 points for the Lakers, but of course he needed 31 shots to get that done. Houston dodged a bullet when Bryant and Yao knocked knees in the 4th quarter. After heading into the tunnel and loosening up again, Yao returned to help seal the deal for the Rockets. Game 2 is Wednesday night in L.A.


-It appears that rookie American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi will be back next season. Simon Cowell told Ellen DeGeneres at a taping of her talk show that the new Idol judge will be back for next season. Hooray.

-Is the season finale of Scrubs going to be the series finale? According to show creator Bill Lawrence, it may be. Lawrence will be departing after this season, as will co-star Zach Braff. The only reason I mention this is for you Jason A. I know you are a Scrubs fan, although I'm not sure why, but read the article and let us all know what you are feeling.


-According to Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, the US Economy should start to recover by the end of 2009. Bernanke says that the economy will bottom out sometime this later this year and begin to turn upward. However he warns that there will be some more bumps along the road, aka more job loss, and the further diminishing of your 401K, and Roth IRA. Not that I'm keeping track or anything.

I've been looking for a 2nd news story to link, I can't find anything that I think is interesting enough to post. So take that news world! Come up with something better for me and I'll link it!
