Athlon's Essential 11 Links of the Day: November 19, 2013


This is your daily link roundup of our favorite sports and entertainment posts on the web for Nov. 19.

• You've probably never heard of model Daria Werbowy, but it's her 30th birthday, and we like to show the birthday love here at Essential 11 Links.

• The Patriots-Panthers game ended in controversy, drawing an audible F-bomb from an understandably livid Tom Brady. But here's a suprisingly reasonable, level-headed assessment of the final no-call from a Patriots fan.

The "Sorry Your Team Lost" NFL roundup, Week 11 edition.

• You probably saw Drew Brees' neck get unnaturally stretched on a hit from Ahmad Brooks. Some genius made a hilarious GIF to commemorate the moment. Trust me, you need to see it.

Russell Westbrook broke about four ankles on one play.

• I hate things that are prefaced with "This is the cutest thing you'll see all day." But this five-year-old drum major is the cutest thing you'll see all day.

Classic cheerleader photos from the '80s and '90s. Sweet fancy Moses, the hair.

• Interesting social experiment: A prankster freaks people out by regurgitating personal stuff that they themselves have posted on social media. People are dumb.

Tracy McGrady appeared to be wearing Shaq's pants on television last night.

Heisman watch, SEC edition. It's all on you, Johnny Football.

• Game-ending no-call aside, the signature play from last night was this sick scramble from Cam Newton.
