Athlon's Essential 11 Links of the Day: July 10, 2014


This is your daily links roundup of our favorite sports and entertainment posts on the web for July 10:

• Rory McIlroy seems to have rebounded nicely from his breakup with Caroline Wozniacki. He's reportedly dating model Nadia Forde.

• LeBron tracker: He's heading to Brazil to watch the World Cup final while Cleveland stews.

A Rangers fan took a screamer off the gut and had a bruise to show for it.

Like Rory, Johnny Manziel seems to have a new lady friend.

Maybe we should stop worrying and learn to love the flop.

Vince Young thinks his 2010 blow-up with Jeff Fisher effectively ended his career. I happen to agree.

• This is interesting: Tracking the Alabama plane during recruiting season. It pays off with players like this: Watch future Bama wideout Calvin Ridley make an insane one-handed catch at The Opening.

USA Today chose a restaurant as a top-10 place for Southern biscuits a year and a half after it closed. I imagine the biscuits are a little stale by now.

Steelers linebacker Vince Williams seemed to be taken by surprise by his headshot.

David Price wore a Batman helmet to the ballpark.

• Everything's coming up Rory: New girlfriend, shot 64 today, hit a 436-yard drive.
