"Digg Girl" and USC Alumna Kina Grannis wins Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest

USC Alumna Kina Grannis, who often performed at USC during my five long years there, was featured on a Doritos commercial at the Super Bowl as a result of the Crash the Super Bowl contest.

While Kina was pretty big while she was at USC, this was the video that made her the "digg girl."

Gotta Digg. Gotta Digg!

Her song, Message From Your Heart was the winning song featured on the commercial.

Brock Lesner joins UFC this weekend

Former WWE Heavyweight champion, Big 10 champion, NCAA champion, and Minnesota Vikings hopeful Brock Lesner is joining UFC this weekend against Frank Mir.

Unfortunately, I'm going to miss the Pay Per View, but the promo videos that UFC is running are asking the question, "Can Brock Lesner really fight?"

I'd say yes.

If Lesner busts out the Superplex, we're in for show.

I'd never want to work for ESPN's Chris Berman

Yep, I'm saying it. I would never, ever, ever, want to work for ESPN's Chris Berman. TMZ posted a clip of him freaking out in the studio a few years back in honor of the Super Bowl, so I thought I'd do the same. Yikes.

Get outta here.

Thursday, January 31, 2008's Top 99 Women 2008 Edition: One of my favorite all-time list features, EVER. just posted its Top 99 Women 2008 edition, which is without a doubt my favorite feature that they do every year. Not only does the feature have tons of pictures, but it has boatloads of awesome editorial content, relevant links, comparisons to the 2007 list, quotations, and fun ways that you can compare your rankings of the women with those of other AskMen users, even without registering!

Needless to say, it's awesome., this list is one of my favorite all-time features, even if it refreshes the whole page instead of just flipping the picture like I wish it did. I gave AskMen about 200 page views in less than 10 minutes because of the feature and chances are I'll be back doing it again before the end of the week. Definitely check it out!'s Top 99 Most Desirable Women is an annual list compiled by readers and staff, ranking the famous females deemed to be the year's most alluring. In casting their votes, readers are asked to look beyond sex appeal and beauty to pick women who have the characteristics they value in a potential companion, like intelligence, humor, charisma, and ambition. The result is an annual list that acts as the definitive gauge for identifying what modern men desire most in their female companions.

This year, over 5 million votes were cast as readers identified the females from the worlds of music, fashion, sports, and entertainment who they felt best represented their ideal woman. So who has joined the likes of Jessica Alba, Beyonce and Adriana Lima in being named 2008's No. 1? Find out by making your way up through the list. Top 99 Women

AskMen also used one of the quotations I gathered for them at a roundtable interview with Eva Longoria, which I thought was pretty cool, on her profile page!

Notables who I thought should be higher (my own personal biases aside, as they'd all be in my personal top 10):
#43: Katharine McPhee (Should be Top 15)
#23: Carrie Underwood (Should be Top 10)
#37: Rachel McAdams (Should be Top 25)
#98: Jenna Fischer (Should be Top 50)

#88: Jessica Chobot (Should be Top 30, though she'd be in my personal Top 5)

I heart Chobot
