We've told you about several sites that are holding various bracket competitions (Hottest female celebrity, Best rock band, Top NBA dance team and Best rock song of all time). Well, The Big Lead is holding a Pop Culture bracket, and somehow Hot Clicks managed to pull a No. 8 seed. We even advanced to the second round, where we're facing Tiger Woods. We really want to beat Tiger. Not many people can say they beat Tiger, and we want to get on that short list. So we're not above bribery, especially since he's already beating our brains in. We're giving you this picture of Tiger's wife, Elin, in hopes that it'll make you vote for us over a man who already has everything.
We interviewed the CBS announcer about the NCAA tournament, his Internet fame, the New York Knicks and more. (Programming note: Check back tomorrow for another interview. This time we're speaking to a female celebrity who's dating an athlete.)
Rick Roll Rundown
Last Wednesday, we wrote about how we just discovered the "Rick Roll" phenomenom, and linked to this video of people getting Rick Rolled at a basketball game. This past Monday, the New York Timeswrote about the Rick Roll trend and went into great detail about the video we linked to. Now, FanIQ tells us that the video was a fake. Either way, we've gotten Rick Rolled twice this week and we've felt like losers. Reader Paul in San Diego told us to "check out this site," and when we clicked on the link, we couldn't close the Web page that blasted Rick Astley's video until we did a Ctrl+Alt+Delete and closed Explorer via Task Manager. Here's the url if you'd like to Rick Roll someone (http://internetisseriousbusiness.com), but we're warning you again, once you go to that site, you can't close it. And then Perez Hilton told us he had video of Whitney Houston smoking crack and, well, see for yourself what happens.
Brian McNamee Is No Longer His No. 1 Enemy
Unfortunately for them, a slew of sports figures have made ThePhoenix.com's list of the 100 Unsexiest Men on the Planet. The guy who had it the worst was Roger Clemens, who came in at No. 1.
