Eli Manning Adopted, Donovan McNabb Done?, Yao Ming Stuffed, Bowl Projections, Playstation 3 Grill, Michael Richards Video

I work and work and work on making this a great sports site, and then I throw in one or two non-sports links every day to broaden our horizons. So guess which two links had the most out clicks the other day? That's right, the one about video games and the one about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears partying in Las Vegas. Yep, this is one fine sports blog.

A big thank you goes out to the Post Gazette's Blog and Gold Steeler column, who has thrown many a kind link Mondesi's way. If you've never checked it out, it's a really cool wrapup of the odds and ends of the internet in relation to your favorite team.

Eli Manning is having a hard time telling the Giants he was adopted.

A San Antonio newspaper takes a variety of shots as ESPN. See, we're not the only ones who have a bone to pick with the Worldwide Leader. (via Deadspin)

Is Donovan McNabb on the downside of his career? I have to admit, Don Banks makes some good points.

A great video of 7'5" Yao Ming being stuffed by 5'9" Nate Robinson. This is the #4 video on YouTube today, passing this week's trifecta of trainwrecks, the original Michael Richards video, the awkward followup interview on Letterman., and the Kelly Ripa vs. Rosie O'Donnell video.


Stuart Mandel once again revises his NCAA Bowl Projections. This time, he has Pitt against Tulsa in the Birmingham Bowl on December 23. If there's one team that deserves to play in the post-season, it's Pitt.

Now presenting the Playstation 3...Grill?

Excellent article about ESPN there.

I have been screaming to anyone that will listen about ESPN's burial of the NHL since just about the time the league's contract was up for renewal.

How can they call themselves a "sports" network when they've buried hockey over the matter of TV contract money, but they play poker all the damn time?

To make matters worse, they're bringing in NASCAR next year, so I can have another event that's less of a sport than hockey shoved down my throat 24/7 by those jackasses!!!
