Sun-Up: Tim Lincecum can wear whatever he wants; Vikings ship in rocky waters; Eric Gordon's dunk; Audrina Patridge; LeBron not happy with rumor mill

Tim Lincecum challenges our long-held theories about what it means to be a man's man.

He has Anthony Kiedis' hair. He wore this snazzy bow tie to his Game 5 start against the Texas Rangers last night.

Then, he went out and dominated, clinching the San Francisco Giants' first World Series since 1954, when they were still playing in New York.

Over the next couple of days, you'll read about how this plucky, ragtag crew of misfits and knuckleheads someone pulled off an improbable championship run to the point of exhaustion. Still, it's hard not to be happy that such a technologically advanced city got the opportunity just what a new-media-centric celebration looks like.

Oh, and Juan Uribe. Never a bad thing when he is happy ...
Reeling Minnesota
The situation in Minnesota seems to be even more bizarre than previously thought. There are reports this morning that coach Brad Childress didn't immediately inform Vikings owner Zygi Wilf that he planned on releasing disgruntled wide receiver Randy Moss.

Additionally, we learned that Moss has a very sophisticated palate, and isn't afraid of being vocal about it.



Air Gordon
Eric Gordon authored this spectacular dunk for the Los Angeles Clippers last night. No arguments here about it besting Derrick Rose's dipsy-doodle.

The Hills Have Legs
Oh, thank goodness. Audrina Patridge will be back on reality television soon. All's well with the world.

And finally ...
LeBron James is not too happy with MediaTakeOut for wondering out loud if he might be getting cozy with groupies.

Times like these I bet he wishes he could tweet in Comic Sans.
