Click Bias Ep. 1: Hate it or Love it, Richard Sherman's On Top

The concept for the following blog is something I've been wanting to do for a few months now, and is semi-inspired by's Hot Clicks ( the hot women part.  I'm sure you will all be satisfied by a hot song instead...  The idea is to post a handful of good links I found over the course of the week during my copious amounts of free time spent wandering the internet, then hopefully not ruin them with pieces of insight/feedback here and there.

These links are obviously going to be a bit oriented to my own interests (click bias), but I'll try not to do over 50% sports...On to the first week...

Gonna start with a shameless attention grabber for the ADHD-inclined, 60 very interesting photos from 2013:

A less surprising photo:

Now, I want to just say a couple of things about Richard Sherman.  My intention was to write a blog about it, but with all the attention he is getting there are already a few writers that have crushed this one.  What I will say is that love him or hate him, I want Richard Sherman playing on my team.  I WANT my teammates thinking they're the best.  Hell there have been times in college flag football games where the opposing QB targeted my WR and I thought "oh hell no what do you think you're doing throwing at me" when I knocked the pass away.  It's a mentality of the game, and while his digs on Crabtree might seem a bit sharp, I really don't think I can blame him.

Looks a bit different with some miced-up context:

And my personal favorite, Sherman ripping Skip Bayless an absolute new one on Bayless's own show last year.  For some this might bring into question his character (touch arrogant) but Skip Bayless is a douche.

Some super artistic dude uses jelly beans to show us exactly what we do (and don't do) during our time on this planet.  If you're not in it for the inspiration, just watch it for how interestingly he portrays it.

Vince Young, the 3rd overall pick in 2006 and former Offensive Rookie of the Year, has (shockingly) filed for bankruptcy.  I will always blame Jeff Fischer a bit for stunting Young's growth by showing absolutely no faith in him by jerking him in and out of the lineup constantly.  Not to say he would've ever grown into a successful NFL quarterback (probably not tbh), but it seemed the rug kept being pulled out from underneath him before the merit for it was ever there.  Either way, we get to watch yet another superstar athlete/entertainer make millions and squander it all in equally short time.  Wish some of that money came my way.

I wish there was a way we could leave these incredible tribes untouched:

Warren Buffett "risking" $1 billion on March Madness this year is a pretty awesome promotional freeroll on his part:

DJ's have rough lives...

And lastly, Vancouver and Calgary started a hockey game last weekend with a full out line brawl, and it was awesome (give it a little to get going):

Throwback music this week.  G-Unit's worst mistake was letting The Game go.
