Sunday Morning Links pt. 9

You know those weeks that make you feel like your testicles are in a meat grinder?

This week will be one of those weeks. 

Finals first finals week of college. Honestly, I have no idea how it will go. Could be easy as hell. Could be...well, refer to the testicular meat grinder comment above. 

Point is: I don't know how regular my blog entries will be in the coming week. I have two tests on Monday, One test EARLY in the morning on Wednesday and a test on Friday afternoon. I already have a blog on deck for Monday, so that should be no problem. I have all of Wednesday after 9:00 to study and can probably find an hour in there for a Wednesday blog. Thursday is an important study day but I can hopefully churn one out anyway. That leaves Friday.

I have a Precision Language exam at 10, and my girlfriend's mother will be in Athens to pick us up and take us home at noon. I will be home around 4. Now all that begs the question: will there be a blog entry on Friday? Answer: I have no idea. I know the 3 or 4 regular readers of this blog probably don't care one way or the other...and in the big scheme of things, a missed blog entry by an 18-year old college student really does not matter. But the idea of missing a Friday blog entry gives me the willies. This has been a real endurance test to me to see if I can maintain consistency. Since I set down The Laws of the Blog about two months ago, I have done what I said I'd do: blog entries every day but Tuesday and Saturday. And I don't really like the idea of breaking that model just yet.

This also brings up the issue of my change in address. I will be going home next Friday and will be in my hometown through Christmas break. I do plan to work when I can but other than that, I don't have any grand plans that would preclude me from keeping my Monday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday-Sunday paradigm. That may change but for now expect the same format for the rest of my natural life.

Also, on the subject of overworking myself (I know, nobody asked)....I will be starting a new endeavor, coming to an internet near you in December. Read this Monday's blog for the announcement. 

Now, with all that nonsense out of the way, here are your (All Presidential) Sunday Morning Links!

- Think baseball stats are for punks? Baseball statician Nate Silver correctly predicted the outcome of the 2008 Presidential election using statistical knowledge gleaned from his baseball days......8 months ago.

- And the award for awkward meeting of the week goes to.....

- Here is the best article regarding Barack Obama's win that I have read.

- Entertainment Weekly asks the question that is on everyone's mind: is America ready to laugh at a black President?

- And finally, Bill Simmons explains what he would do as "Sports Czar" in an Obama cabinet.

Well there you have it. Enjoy your week...because somebody has to.

Negro I have been going at this blogging thing for three years now. Three years and 950 posts! That is almost one per day. Final examinations are no excuse, you can blog through that no problem.
