Roundin ‘Em Up

It’s rainy here in Dallas this weekend which means baseball games have been rained out and thrift store trips have been cancelled. Instead, we’re staying in, baking, muffins, drinking absurd amounts of coffee, writing blog posts, and reading articles, stories, blogs, tweets, facebook threads…basically anything we can get our hands on. Here’s a solid collection we think you might like:

I had a conversation with one of my best friends on Thursday afternoon, we were talking about how sick and disgusted we were with the LeFestivities and yet we both admitted (sheepishly) that we were drawn in, fascinated, that we would both watch “the decision.” It should have been called “the derision”…here are two great articles summing up what sport has become to us, the Y generation. The second one is one of the best articles I’ve ever read. Enjoy…or don’t. LeBron I | LeBron II

Yesterday I posted about a girl who has an amazing blog about motherhood and life. Here’s her husband’s blog, it’s even better…and his posts are a LOT shorter than ours.

I was crushed when I found out Domino, the greatest magazine of all time, was shutting down. Here’s a semi-similar digital mag called Lonny. Clicker beware, you could get lost for hours.

This is an experiment. Well, this marriage, yes, is an experiment, but also this video is an experiment. We wanted to throw something random out there and see if you guys liked it. This is me teaching Jen about sports and getting her thoughts on LeBron, World Cup, and The British Open. To me it’s some of the funniest candor I’ve ever seen. To you…it might be stupid. If so then move along and go read this girl, she’s awesome. If you only have 30 seconds…Jen insinuates that Portugal is in South America at 2:15 and the real fireworks begin at 3:26.

Oh, and yes, the title is very much a play on words…

4 Links for the 4th

We’re in Austin this weekend (don’t worry, we pre-posted everything, pre-posted is a funny phrase…) but we left you 4 great articles to celebrate the 4th of July. Happy cooking out and World Cuppies watching! PS: that’s NOT the vehicle we took to Austin but I kind of wish it was…
