• In anticipation of the World Cup in Germany, brothels are putting up huge advertisements on the sides of buildings. We have much to learn from the Germans. By the way, I think "Die Welt zu Gast bei Freundinnen" translates roughly to "It is free for you, MJD." [The Foul Pole]

• Justin Hawkins, lead singer for a band called "The Darkness," is writing a World Cup anthem for England. It can't be worse than that Mets song, right? Well, it can be, if it relies a little too much on references to World War II. [NME.com]


• The Gumball 3000 is underway, and sadly, it has nothing to do with gumballs. It's an 8-day, 3000-mile, 3-continent rally race. You can find live coverage here. [Gumball 3000 Live]

• The Washington Nationals still don't have an owner, and if you even suggest that they do, Bud Selig will come to your house and punch you in the face. Like this (and thank you, Airing of Grievances). [Baseball is Heaven's gift to Mortals]


• It's not a mock draft, it's a rock draft. I have some issues with Elvis Presley going #1, but... I suppose a lot of people are going to have a lot of issues with this. Good idea, though. [Pittsburgh Tribune-Review]

• An outstanding Philadelphia 76ers t-shirt. War Is Not Allen Iverson. Or something like that. [Philadelphia Will Do]

• Wondering what happened to some of the all-time great NFL draft busts? From Heath Shuler to Cade McNown, The Realests has you covered. [The Realests]
