Super Bowl Weekend Links

Are you just sitting around your home waiting for the game to start? Here are some things you can do to pass the time:

Take the Traveler IQ Challenge. The objective is to click locations on the map as quickly as possible. I made it through level 6 where I scored 29255 points on World Capitals – Medium (30000 points are needed to advance to the next level). My overall score was 195,932 points. Warning: this is very addictive.

Great recaps of Thursday night’s Lost episode by Kassy K and Liz Kelly/Jen Chaney at The Washington Post.

Speaking of the Post, Kevin Mohs, vice president for production at Animal Planet, was online on Friday answering questions about the Puppy Bowl.

Reebok is making Kool-Aid shoes! (via Deadspin).

Finally, Happy Groundhog Day! Unfortunately, this is another year that I am not in Punxsutawney for the celebration. Hopefully, I’ll be there next year. (I seem to say this every year!) Yes, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so that means six more weeks of winter. For all of your Groundhog Day coverage, visit the official website of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.

My score was 259,076 and I reached level 8 or medium. Looks like I kicked your ass.

The second time you beat me, I only had 185,000, but the Third time I played i got 362,541. Looks like I win the family geography bowl.

I scored 350,748. If I take the average of my two scores, do I defeat the average of your scores?

Tried again, and got to Level 11, but it's ridiculous. It asks for random cities in Russia and Australia -- there's no hope. (469,973)
