Daily Links 9/17

September 17th, 2013 | 7 Comments | Posted in Daily Links

Looks like the “Bachelor” filming will begin tonight at the mansion. I’ve given you 5 of the girls. Right now, I have 10 other names and profiles of girls that I THINK are on the show. Still waiting for a bit more confirmation, plus seeing if any of them end up being alternates and never make the first night. I would think tomorrow or Thursday, I’ll roll out a few more names for you that I’m more solid on. With that said, if two of the girls that I’ve been given end up being on the show, well, lets just say that’ll make for an interesting casting decision. Not really sure we’ve ever seen something like it before. However, I’m not convinced both of them are on it yet, so it might not even be a story. We’ll see. I really start to question some of the people that decide to go on this show. I understand most are looking at it as an opportunity to better their career in the media, or just to be more well known and be in magazines, but is it really worth it when a simple Google search can pull up some not so flattering things about you? Personally, I don’t think it’s worth it but apparently these people do. Juan Pablo definitely has his fair share of women with some, shall we say, interesting backgrounds this season. Thank you Google.

Daily Links

-I think since I started the “Daily Links” column, I’ve had at least one story about Miley every day. The streak continues after yesterday’s earth shattering, shocking, and downright head scratching announcement that her and Liam have called off their engagement. Man, now I have zero hope I’ll ever get married.

-So why’d they split? You might think it’s because Miley has become a twerking slut. Maybe, maybe not. But I prefer to go with the other rumor, and that’s that Liam’s been sexting January Jones. Hey, whatever works Liam. I mean, who wouldn’t want to pursue a single mom whose yet to reveal who the father is of her 2 YEAR OLD son. Wow.

-Even Britney decided to weighed in on Miley’s VMA performance. Gee, I wonder which stance she took?

-The first 7 minutes of “Survivor: Blood vs Water” were released yesterday, to wet your appetite for the premiere tomorrow night. I’ve said I’m not thrilled with the gazillion twists, but I’m always willing to give “Survivor” the benefit of the doubt. Lets see how it plays out.

-I don’t know who any of these three people are, but all I need to see is “Dumb and Dumber” sequel, and I’m interested.

-Maybe this will seem weird, but I’ve never seen the “Sound of Music.” Should I have? I know it’s a classic but, uhhhhh, well, I’m a dude whose not really into musicals. However, the reboot is going to have Carrie Underwood in it, along with these three, so maybe I’ll check it out.

-In this day and age where anyone can pretty much say anything on the internet under an anonymous name with zero repercussions, is anyone really shocked that Miss NY was sent racist tweets after her Miss America crowning Sunday night? Sad, but not the least bit shocking.

-Yet another person who had to deal with anonymous haters was Julie Chen, who admitted to having surgery last week when she was younger so she could look “less Chinese.” Once again, pathetic and sad but not surprising.

-Been a few days, but, Farrah Abraham has made her way back in the news. Yippee. She’s drunk, she’s at a club, and she’s dropping f-bombs. You are setting a wonderful example for your daughter, Farrah. Keep it up.

-One of the more interesting shows of the fall season that begins next week is the “Michael J. Fox Show”. We’ve never seen someone with Parkinson’s Disease be the lead character on a network show. Or any show for that matter.

-Leave it to 15 year old Jaden Smith to tell us what’s wrong with society. Namely, schools. He thinks they’re brainwashing our youth. So one should ever go to school according to 15 year old Jaden Smith. Thanks for the insight little guy. Now shut up.

-You know that Duggar family that has shot 19 kids out of her uterus? Well, the third oldest one is now 20 years old and has begun dating. Oh, I’m sorry, not dating – courting. Please, DO NOT call it dating to the Duggar family. They might have the Lord strike you down with a bolt of lightning or something.

-Plenty of people in the media seem to have an opinion on Ben Affleck being the new Batman. Personally, I don’t care. The fact there was such an uproar over this makes me weep for society. And frankly, Ben doesn’t care what you think either. Nerds everywhere are freaking out.

-Apparently Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini doesn’t like the Nebraska fans. At least he didn’t after a win vs Ohio St back in 2011. Here listen for yourself. But if you don’t like bad words, you might want to cover your ears. I love when stuff like this gets out because it shows what coaches and players really say when they think microphones are off, not the PC answers they give the media all the time.

  1. As a Nebraska fan, this whole Bo Pelini thing blew way out of proportion. This happened two years ago, whoever leaked it obviously did it at this time on purpose (following a loss to UCLA). We all know coaches talk this way, but let’s be honest fans do too. Many Nebraska fans these days are the fairweather fans Bo mentions- and they’re the first to blame Bo for losses, and the first to sing his praises if we win. The fact remains that a lot Nebraska fans during the Ohio State game two years ago left at halftime. Then only returned when they heard we made a comeback. I’d say the things Bo did about them too.

  2. I am also Husker fan and if it was just that instance I would agree things were being blown out of proportion, especially considering the fans did suck that day. But honestly this is just one more thing that really seems to show a “team vs. fans and media” attitude, anger issues, and in general no real loyalty to Husker Nation.

  3. Look, I realize that there is nothing going on in Lincoln Nebraska on a Saturday, but if you call yourself a member of “Husker Nation” and you are not an alumnus and don’t work there, being an overall wearing Goober Pyle clone doesn’t qualify you to say squat about the coach. I live in SEC country and half the members of their ” nations” are toothless rednecks with sixth grade edumications. Honestly the world would be a better place if these folks just spent Saturdays tending to their tractors and their hogs.

  4. @rob22, I have no idea what you’re trying to say. Both ashlee and cyoung, and me, for that matter, are Husker fans. No doubt we each have strong ties to the state and/or University.

    To my fellow Husker RS followers, about the Pelini controversy, I agree with both of you. I was at that OSU game two years ago and there were plenty of circumstances that could lead to an overly righteous private rant like he made, and at the same time I agree that it is part of a pattern of us vs them and over the top emotional response that is part of who Pelini is. Personally, I think the person who made and chose this moment to release the audio tape has more to be ashamed of than Pelini does in this particular instance.

  5. While I haven’t followed this story much and don’t feel it’s fair to form an opinion without knowing all the facts or reading the article Steve linked to yet, I can say that in my book few things in the sports world are more annoying than fair-weathered fans. Can’t stand them. I stay true to my teams, win or lose, crappy season (or even decade!) or not. As a diehard Lakers and Cowboys fan, I am very used to disappointing seasons lately, sadly! haha
