Friday LinkFrogging - 9/30/11
Welcome to fall kids.

I'm sure its a welcome change to everyone.  Well, everyone except those of you in Boston and Atlanta.

*choke*

While the rest of America is discovering the wonderful peculiarities of Moneyball, Red Sox Nation ran into a walking, talking, home run hitting example of doing more with less.

Well done Rays.  Well done.

I have to give a "well done" to Brad Pitt as well.  The fact that he brought Michael Lewis' love letter to sabermetrics to the big screen is impressive in and of itself.  The fact that it opened second only to the unstoppable circle of life that is The Lion King is even more impressive.

Making anyone outside of mid-90s fantasy baseball circles care about Scott Hatteberg is a monumental feat Mr. Pitt.

Speaking of Hatteberg, he is played in Moneyball by Parks & Rec's favorite doofus, Chris Pratt. 

What does that have to do with anything?

Simple, Pratt is married to this week's cheesecake.

Say hello to Anna Faris.

You probably know her best as the face of the Scary Movie franchise.  She has starred in all four installments of the horror sendup as Cindy Campbell.  According to IMDB, she also made an uncredited appearance as Cindy in Herbie - Fully Loaded.  Who knew?

In addition to the Scary Movies, she's appeared in such movies as The House Bunny, Brokeback Mountain, Observe and Report, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and the Alvin & the Chipmunks sequel.

She was the ditzy birth mother of Chandler and Monica's twins in the twilight days of Friends.

Ms. Faris also turned in a pretty entertaining turn as herself on Entourage

This week Ms. Faris' new movie, What's Your Number, opens.  The trailers don't fill me with a lot of hope, but then again, neither did the Scary Movie trailers and they made truckloads of money.

Moneyball people.  Doing more with less.

On to the links.
