Link Dump 2: Electric Boogaloo

posted by gspm to navel gazing at 11:22 AM - 48 comments

If you didn't catch it you must watch a clip from the Sharks vs Avs game from last weekend. Jonathan Cheechoo scores the goal of the year (wmv). Recommended for hockey fans, people who kind of like hockey, people who have only just heard of hockey or even anyone who has just heard of ice.

Maybe we can coax that nerd jerseygirl to toss some of her emargoed links our way.

and oh yeah, this is the sequel to the inaugural link dump from last month. now I am done.

I saw that goal as it happened, and if it was Darren Pang doing the color commentary, I think he dropped a load. It was simply amazing, and the REALLY cool thing? Cheechoo's dad was in the stands for it.

i could dump a few that i don't see getting more substantial at the moment. there may be a lot of red sox links. i know some are tired of all things boston and/or ny (understandably at times).

50 pts awarded to gspm for the title alone. And a bonus 100 pts for the keeping the 'link dump' alive. (WLIIA scoring system, British edition)

Pandaf Golf Flash game i've been playing a lot lately. I'm up to level 84, this thing seems endless.

Pandaf Golf is addictive. Thanks!

oh yeah, WLIIA, British Edition......good watching on university afternoons......Clive made Drew Carey look so pedestrian... AND the Cheechoo goal was sweeeeeet, though I am not even sure how you think of doing that in a game...it seems so awkward.

Well he had to...he was too far past the puck to chip it in the normal way.

Damn this pandaf golf!

gspm, thanks for that Cheechoo link, I was looking for a clip. How is this a dump, though, there's only two links??? Mas dumpage, por favor! Cute Houllier quote for today: "You would have to cut off both my arms before I let go of him because I would have them both wrapped around him." Just for StarFucker, of course.

since billy wants us to strain for more dumping, I will post this link to an upcoming book called Genetically Modified Athletes. < /academic>

posted by smithers at 10:24 PM on April 28

well smithers, what good is a dump without serious volume and work rate?

posted by billsaysthis at 10:56 PM on April 28

agreed on that one....

Media Manny Ramirez talks about the offseason, the almost trade of the century, his teammates. Not only can he rake on the field, he's fun, he's down to earth, he's easy going, he giggles, he speaks eloquently and has a great grasp of his second language (he has been/is worried about not being able to express himself well in english). I wish he had been talking all these years he's been here. i love that he calls Gorden Edes "papi" at the end of the interview.

Don't forget his new site. And now I'm going to have Fannypack's "Hey Mami" stuck in my head all day. Which isn't so bad.

Level 54 is frigging hard.

posted by Succa at 04:16 PM on April 29

hmmm, i played that last week and got into the 20s but if there is promise of levels upon levels i should give it another whack.

Because I am listening to it too. whats kprhov?

posted by jerseygirl at 01:42 PM on April 30

I figured you were. I wasn't being serious. ;) kprhov is the code for level 54 of Pandaf golf. I'm still struggling with level 42, so I basically have no hope.

the tribulations of knicks fan web designer. i recommend scrolling down about halfway and then reading up from the post dated 04:02:04 ('cause the design is sweet and content is entertaining, but the navigation sucks).

Finished Pandalf Golf. Damn. Now what am I gonna do at work.

posted by Succa at 04:53 PM on April 30

i was a bit bummed when it ended. I mean if you're going to make like 102 levels, make a few thousand more.

posted by corpse at 05:23 PM on April 30

The play all the user created levels, or create one yourself.

posted by grum@work at 06:52 PM on April 30

one user level i tried had a par of 43 and was more like a puzzle. neat. Flyers prospect goaltender Antero Niittymaki is creditted with a shorthanded OT goal in a strange situation in the final game of the Philadelphia Phantoms season. (via hockeypundits).

in scottish football - Glasgow's Celtic recently completed a 77 game unbeaten streak at home. Of note is that they recently had their pitch replaced. Their home results since then - draw (2-2 vs Hearts, SPL match), draw (1-1 vs Villareal, UEFA Cup), loss (1-2 vs Aberdeen, SPL match, ending the 77 game unbeaten streak) and loss (1-2 vs Dunfermline, SPL match this past weekend). So now they have a new streak - 4 games winless.

<snark>gspm, does this mean another club will have a chance to displace one of the Old Firm next season?</snark>

posted by billsaysthis at 10:06 AM on May 03

well, with celtic losing Henrik Larsson and probably manager Martin O'Neill they will likely be worse. Rangers won't have much money to improve their squad by the sounds of it. I can't see the third place team, Hearts, making it to second next year but you never know. The drop off between the old firm at the next tier is much like that between the big three and the rest in the EPL. Though, for the foreseeable future the best chance of a non old firm team topping the SPL would come if the old firm buggered off to play in the EPL or English 1st Div.

posted by gspm at 02:19 PM on May 03

Isn't Larsson too blonde to play in Spain? He'll fry in the Sun!

his name is Elisha?! i thought it was either just Eli or maybe Elijah. hahahahahaha. elisha. that's a girl name. hahahah ahem. i hope he didn't get that great of a grade for making that page... he made all his hypertext links mailtos.

what did he major in? media studies? and did he pass? the website sucks so bad it goes beyond sucks and back to rocks.

posted by gspm at 11:07 AM on May 04

I wouldn't be too bad on him. I've seen professionally designed sites that are nearly as bad.
