I've had appointments all day today, so I'm running behind. But how about just a small batch of links to help wrap up your afternoon?
-- If you didn't see the link earlier, I have a story in today's Telegraph on how UGA's offensive line is hoping to take the next step this season.
-- Marc Weiszer looks at the sudden emergence of Vance Cuff, who Mark Richt called the most impressive cornerback of the spring.
-- Chris Low is predicting bit things for Washaun Ealey in 2010.
-- I highly recommend cruising over to Dawgs View where Ben has taken an in-depth look at this year's Bulldogs going position by position. It's good stuff.
-- Florida may use two quarterbacks this year, if you believe Urban Meyer.
-- It's gone from bad to worse to just plain ugly for the Diamond Dogs.
-- Chicago Now has an extended interview with former Diamond Dog Gordon Beckham.
-- I think I'm finally over the Syracuse loss enough that I can now enjoy this fantastic video from our pal Jay Adams. Plus, who doesn't love an oversized Julie Boeheim head?
-- Good piece in The New York Times on how Conan O'Brien is using the intergoogles to stay in the spotlight despite not staying on the air.
-- And New York Magazine has the intriguing story of how J.D. Salinger's final book was almost published.
-- I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one: "The Office" is trying to get Amy Ryan to return for another episode.
-- And finally, some "Lost" links...
First, an interview with the actor who plays Jacob.
Second, The Village Voice looks at "Lost" therapy sessions.
And last, I thought last night's episode was by far the best of the season, although I may be bias because Desmond is hands down my favorite character on the show.
Stuff of Legend has some early thoughts at his blog.
I think this episode showed how sorely Desmond's character has been missed. He provides something to the show -- both in terms of human emotion and in advancing the more advanced aspects of the plot -- that no other character does.
I'm also thrilled that we finally have some understanding of the flash sideways timeline -- even if it did seem to come a bit suddenly. Daniel's explanation came off as particularly didactic rather than a natural progression of the plot. But hey, it's what I've been waiting all season for, so who am I to complain about minor details?
Plus... who can argue with having Charlie back? And next week looks like we're going to see even more of our favorite dearly departed characters in a Hurley-centric episode that I'm hoping finally gives us some closure on the whole Libby in the psych ward loose end.
All in all, a great episode, brutha.
