Links Padma Lakshmi Would Love: Jimmer Fredette Fever Will Save Twitter, the Super Bowl Team Photos Are Set, and Kevin Durant Is Good At Basketball

It’s morning. While you get out your favorite coffee mug, pour a glass of orange juice, and make sure you have enough milk for your bowl of cereal, get yourself back up to date with the happenings in, or at least somewhat near, the sporting universe.

The following are links that we’re certain Padma Lakshmi would love:

padma-lakshmiSure, people knew of him before, mostly because of the name, but with last night’s 43-point performance in BYU’s 71-58 win over then-undefeated San Diego State, Jimmer Fredette is about to go Steph Curry all over the college basketball world.  Also, his play may provide the shining beacon of hope that Twitter can be used for good and not just by meanies.

— Super Bowl: Maurkice Pouncey has been ruled out by fellow offensive lineman Chris Kemoeatu.  That’s too bad.  And the Packers will allow the 16 players on injured reserve to be apart of the team photo.  Whether they join the alternating offense/defense/offense player alignment or just kind of stand awkwardly to the side of everyone else is unknown.

— Roger Goodell will take a $1 salary if the NFL goes on strike.  Thanks for letting us know, sir, but how about just not going on strike?

— NBA: The Bucks won, thanks in part to the contributions of 10-day contract player Garrett Temple.

-The San Antonio Spurs are 39-7 after last night’s win in Utah; the best record they’ve ever had at this point in a season, which is pretty silly.  Not even Jimmer could save the Jazz in this one.

Game of the Year candidate out of Oklahoma City and Minnesota.  Kevin Durant: 47 points — 32 in the second half — 18 rebounds.  Kevin Love: 31 points, 21 boards.  Michael Beasley: 30 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists.  And it all came down to an ill-advised, rushed three point attempt with a few seconds remaining in overtime by Luke Ridnour.  What more can you ask for?

-The Hornets have won ten straight.  They win in bunches, those guys.

Joe Posnanski explains what the “for” was for.

— Oh yeah, this is pretty impressive, Kurt Suzuki.

It’s Thursday and hey! It’s snowing!
