Thursday Bird Droppings

First, your Pick 6 update: Jokes & Burns put up an impressive 87.1 points yesterday for first place, but it's not enough to top Mr. Bumstead's one-day score of 99.7. EME had possibly his highest score yet with 78.7, good for second place. Check out yesterday's leaderboard here. In the weekly contest, BF721 has moved into first place with a score of 145.7.

Now, before we get to links, I'd like to air a pet peeve. That pet peeve is sports sites that think that it's also a good idea to post pictures about sexy ladies in hardly any clothes on their front pages. Sometimes they actually write about the ladies, sometimes they just put up pictures, but either way, WHY? I understand that the majority of sports fans are men and so there is going to be an overlap in people who like sports and people who like sexy ladies, but seriously, I'm so over it. I love shoes and Shemar Moore but you don't see me throwing pictures of them up on the front page just because I can, do you? Ok, end rant. Time for links!
