Mizzou Links, 3-15-11

The rare loaded Tuesday links ... guess that's what happens when you've got the NCAA Tournament, coaching rumors, an NFL draft particularly relevant to Mizzou, and the 20th birthday of an awesome band all coinciding...

Mizzou Basketball Links

So this is almost surely going to sound more holier-than-thou than I intend, but ... I think I'm done linking to the Post-Dispatch for a little while.  Their sole intent over the last few days, as it pertains to Mizzou, has been to rile up Mizzou fans, either about their undeserving team or their soon-to-be-departing, 'expert-at-non-denials' (seriously) coach.  While that's certainly their right (it obviously sells papers) ... and while, for all I know, they're right about every word they've typed ... it's also my right to choose not to link to them.

Finally, considering how many shows of theirs I have attended through the years, I would be remiss if I didn't point out that yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the Dave Matthews Band's first show.  I understand all the rationale for disliking them (and some of their fans) ... but I love them.  And I love that my two favorite bands from the mid-1990s -- DMB and Pearl Jam -- are still both touring and making interesting, at least semi-relevant music.  If you ask me, I choose bands a lot better than sports teams...

You know how I choose to celebrate the 20th anniversary of anything?  Beeramisu.
