1. Whoa, fake Don Cannon! Whoa! Poor real Don Cannon. Get well, Don!

2. As you know, Burghers, Sidney Crosby recently launched his clothing line with Reebok:

The casual line of boys’ and men’s clothing by Reebok initially will be sold only at three Canadian sporting goods stores — Sportchek, National Sports and Sports Experts — and will not be available online.

I don’t know about you, but I think the boys and men of the world are going to go APESHIT over that hot pink t-shirt. I smell product shortage.

3. Did you guys watch Andy Roddick lose to Roger Federer-er-er last night at the US Open? That was some awesome tennis only made better by listening to Andre Agassi and John McEnroe do the commenting. Tennis rocks.

4. You know, we just don’t do nearly enough animal sacrificing here in the US Americans. Screw regular maintenance and safety checks. Bring on the sacrificial slaughter. I volunteer the pigeons.

5. WTAE got a KICKASS new set. And I mean kick. ass. Go here to watch a video of Wendy Bell giving a high energy (if you love her)/manic (if you hate her) tour of the set … and either hate her guts, or love her to pieces. There is no middle ground.

6. I saw a Segway tour rolling down Sixth Avenue the other day as I tried to turn onto Grant. Thank God this kind woman held out her hand in the STOP gesture as she rolled in front of me because I was THIS close to not understanding that there was a SEGWAY IN FRONT OF MY CURRENTLY STOPPED CAR. I totally would have slammed the gas pedal and mowed her down if she hadn’t done that.

Here’s a picture of her authoritative jazz hands-loving ass:

Those hats? Still rock.

    I used to LOVE watching tennis until all of the grunting and screaming became fashionable. Now, I feel like I am listening to a cheap porn flick… expecting to see a money shot at the end of a long volley.

    So much money goes into advertising campaigns that nothing, absolutely nothing, that happens in a commercial or shows up on a print ad happens by accident. Therefore, I have to wonder (but not much) what subliminal message is being conveyed by placing the blonde’s head right in front of Sid’s lips. The first word-association phrase that bolted through my brain was, “Giving head.” I mean, as if that hot pink thing weren’t … uh, hot enough already. Good God, it’s so skin-tight I think I can see her belly button.

    OK, sexiest (U.S.) commercial ever. I saw this only one time, after which I assume it got pulled for being so suggestive. I don’t think I was dreaming.

    This was for … hell, I can’t remember, Fruit of the Loom, I think. Anyway, it was the old Inspector 12 series of ads, where Inspector 12 was a woman whose supposed job was to inspect the underwear for strength of seam or something. Anyway, Inspector 12 is a semi-attractive middle-aged looking woman and in this ad she’s training a new inspector, a hot-looking 20-something. At one point in the ad, while they yadda yadda about comfort and fit, they are face-to-face in front of a male torso mannequin with a significant … um, bulge in the briefs. The mannequin and the bulge are in the middle of the shot, with the inspectors (more specifically the inspectors’ mouths) on either side in the foreground.

    Holy hell. I’m thinking they would have sold a lot of newbriefs, because the ones any straight guy was wearing when he saw that ad would have gotten rather … well, sticky.

    Did anyone see the article on PG’s website about Crosby out delivering season tickets personally?

    Didn’t see the PG article but saw him on WTAE’s 6pm news. He took off his shoes to keep a ladies carpet clean.

    i think agassi and mac should just sleep together and get it over with. i’m a huge tennis fan and ex player from back in the day. i once played a guy that played on the french tour circuit and he knew and hung out with andre’s older brother. i wish you could buy the old mac vs borg matches on dvd. i would be all over those like white on rice.

    Bucdaddy, that’s not your imagination — she clearly has an outie. Which means that other portions of the image clearly have been airbrushed, and possibly with liquid nitrogen.

    Starting now, that girl has a legit three-month window to turn herself into a big little star. Just sayin’.

    Pittgirl, I was just in Nova Scotia (yes, including Cole Harbour) and I say Sid can put out a ruffle shirt like that one Seinfeld had to wear and nobody, not one person, can whine “but I don’t wanna be a pirate!” because Nova Scotia freakin’ ROCKS, and therefore Nova Scotians can do whatever the hell they want. If you ever have a chance to go somewhere, go there.

    Also, according to the Halifax local news, that pink shirt and other women’s clothing will be out later, and supposedly the whole line will be coming to the US at some point.

    Obviously, Sid’s a bit of a major deal up there. However, it might be equal parts “Sid’s awesome” and “there’s nothing else happening.” The big story on my first night there was that “The Halifax area’s notorious serial cycling bum-grabber has struck again.” I can’t make this stuff up.
