Good good links #128

I’m a German girl, lost in a football world. <- sung to the tunes of this song. If you’re in a funky mood watch this video – I’d actually never seen it before searching it this very second – for a guaranteed laughter.

Onto the meaning of this, though, I contemplated if there was any specific way to open a post on Super Bowl Sunday [I’m still none the wiser]. Then, however, I have the excuse of living overseas and lacking any knowledge of football [or any kind of sports rules] and get excused, yes? If you’re browsing around today I guess you’re not watching it, either, or are waiting for kickoff.  There have been many great posts around the web again so waiting  clearly won’t get boring. The food offered will probably help, too. For any of you worried about that this could make you feel better :).

Super Bowl or not: enjoy your Sunday!
