12 Most Devoted Celebrity NBA Playoff Fans – This list taught me that Chris Tucker is suddenly old, Eddie Vedder has turned into a bookish MILF, and that Will Smith had his own basketball card. Also, how perfect is it that Jared from Subway loves the Pacers? The Pacers are the Jared from Subway of the NBA. [EgoTV]

The Deadly Sounds of Cricket – A cricket announcer is forced into (temporary, day-specific) retirement after “Trego went the tonk against Glamorgan” (whatever the hell that means) and hit the ball into the commentary box, breaking a window and hitting the poor guy in the back. Listen to it happen, for a strange mix of ominous and hilarious. [Stuff]

Relief From the “Tornayda-storms” – Sports Illustrated is holding an online auction where you can bid on iconic photos of Alabama football in an effort to help those tornadoed by the tornadoes last week. Woo, Osama Bin Laden is dead, Roll Tide y’all! [Charity Buzz via Hot Clicks]

LeBron James Makes A Tom Waits Album Cover Out Of Rajon Rondo – I don’t mean to link Jon all the time, but I did live with the guy for a year, and this is exactly the kind of thing he does best. Stay tuned for the inevitable “Christmas Card from a Guard in Boston” [SBN]

Urban Meyer Could Stand To Have Fewer Chatty Daughters – Seriously, he’s going to go to the store and forget to pick up some eggs, and six-year old Caitlin Meyer (or whoever) is going to jump on Tumblr and upload a collage about how much she hates her Dad. [via Yardbarker]

Not Sports

Know Your Voice Actors: Ten Faces to Go With the Voices You Know – A small part of me is sad to know what Alpha from the Power Rangers looks like. A bigger part of me is pleased/disgusted at how much I’d make out with Bobby Hill. [Warming Glow]

The Gift of Gab: Five Legendary Tupac Interviews – Every single Tupac interview ever given should start with “First off [interviewer’s name here], f**k your bitch and the clique you claim.” [Smoking Section]

The Worst Of Hollywood Shorthand – “It’s ___ meets ___!” I optioned a screenplay a couple of summers ago, and the best I could come up with for the adaptation of my own work was “it’s like Garden State meets something that doesn’t make me want to vomit for an hour and a half.” So this is definitely worth your time. [Film Drunk]

40 Worst Rob Liefeld Drawings – Yeah, I wrote half of this, but a lot of With Leather readers don’t know me or how willing I am to piss off people who could get me jobs doing things I love. You will not believe how bad this guy is at the thing that made him a millionaire. [Progressive Boink]
