Monday Musings - April 26, 2010

  • It probably deserves it's own post, but the WEC, er, Aldo vs. Faber PPV on Saturday was probably the best MMA PPV I have seen in a long time. When the worst fight that aired was the main event, which was still a great, if one-sided, battle. Jose Aldo is legitimately a top 5 pound for pound fighter, and could easily be top 3. His destruction of Urijah Faber was shocking and yet not all that unexpected (at least in my view.) The scariest part of his dominance is that he is only 23. We could be looking at the start of the greatest MMA career of all time. It is unreal.

  • If you are an MMA fan, track down the Leonard Garcia/"Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung match. It is not a technical masterpiece, but is just a great exciting fight. (Non-MMA fans, think Arturo Gatti vs. Mickey Ward from boxing.)

  • The Blue Jays are introducing Twitter Tuesday. Happily, they did not create a Myspace Monday or a Facebook Friday. I actually like the idea of this promotion, since baseball probably lends itsef to watching live and twittering, but I'm not sure how exactly it will work. Do you have to have Blue Jays twitter messages sent to your phone? Do you have to register with the @bluejays account? And why do I have a cynical feeling this is an attempt to drive texting/data usage for Rogers?

  • They say porn drives technological advances. Here's even more proof.

  • Jeff Probst through the years

  • Joe Nedney defends humankind against the evils of a robot kicker

  • And finally...the Iron Sheik meets Kermit:
