Friday LinkFrogging - 7/16/10

Boys and girls, the dog days of summer are upon us.  

Its been a rough week in the world of Geek.  

First we lost Harvey Pekar.  The next day it was "The Boss," George Steinbrenner.  Note to all you celebrities out there, the rule of 3's is currently in play.  

The National League won an All-Star Game for the first time since 1996.  

And I discovered that IFC is rerunning Freaks and Geeks on Friday nights.  

That's good news kids.  

The much lauded cult show never really got a fair shake a decade ago when it was on NBC, but it served as the career launching pad for Judd Apatow, James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel among others.  

If you haven't seen the show, or want to see it again, tune in tonight for the episode entitled "Tricks and Treats."  Its my personal favorite.  

And speaking of Freaks and Geeks, that brings us to this week's cheesecake.  

Say hello to Linda Cardellini.  

She played the geek trying to become freak, Lindsey Weir, on Freaks and Geeks.  Watching her mathlete try to rebel against suburban Michigan (I'm looking at you Chris) norms formed the core of the series.  She went on to play Nurse Taggert on ER and Velma in theScooby-Doo movies.  

You always knew Velma was a freak didn't you?  

On to the links.

To keep the theme going...10 things I learned from Freaks and Geeks.
