The World Wide Web is about to be inundated with various kinds of brackets. Of course, brackets to determine the hottest woman of 2009 will be everywhere. However, when it comes to creativity, it'll be hard to top The Big Lead's culture tournament, which features Erin Andrews, the Ponzi Scheme, Thom Brennaman's love for Tim Tebow, Michael Phelps' bong hit, Lost and much, much more -- including No. 5 seed and soccer WAG, Cheryl Cole.

Off of last week's Christian Laettner/Kentucky mention, Kevin Bailey, of Dallas, says "Hey, I found this video of Chris Farley acting as Christian Laettner. It happened to pop in my mind when I saw the little item you posted on 'Revisiting A Legendary Play.' Enjoy a classic comedian." And Jeff, of Grand Rapids, Mich., says "Does this interviewer (Ken, Big 10 Network Wrestling) remind you a lot of Chris Farley?" Good call. I can see some similarities.

I apologize to those of you outside of New York, but there's no way I can pass on mentioning the rumors that are in all of the New York papers today. Max Kellerman left his ESPN Radio show earlier this week and reports say he may be joining WFAN's Mike Francesa. Now, I've never listened to Kellerman (who listens to ESPN Radio in New York?), so I have no opinion on him. But this is like watching one of your parents get remarried after a divorce. Part of me thinks Francesa shouldn't have a partner if it's not Chris Russo. But with Sirius recently getting saved from bankruptcy, it doesn't look like a reunion will ever happen. So, I'll try to give Kellerman a fair chance if the rumors are true, but I still say the partner should be Francesa's producer, Sal Licata, who's shown good chemistry with Francesa in the few chances he's gotten. More important than all this rambling, though, is Russo vs. Francesa in Mike Tyson's Punchout 2009!
