Smart Links – Kick-slides, Poker, Behavioral Econ, Single-Wing Playbook – 8/2/2012

Mike Mayock on the kick-slide:

- Podcast I did with Brad of the Indy Colts site Stampede Blue.

- Clemson walk-on is a Purple Heart winner.

- Gore Vidal has died; here are all of his writings for the New York Review of Books. I liked the one on Italo Calvino.

- Federal court wisdom: “Entering one’s bedroom with a bottle in one hand and a cigarette in the other is not foreplay.”

- Freelancers in a new world.

- Get your old school learn on: Princeton’s 1940 Single-Wing playbook (h/t Tog). There’s some pretty interesting stuff in here, from scramble rules to a signal system.

- Interesting article on former Houston QB Case Keenum’s attempt to make the Texans roster. I’m not sure I agree with the sentiment that he — or anyone — “deserves” any particular NFL outcome, but I’m happy he’s getting a shot and he’s absolutely right when he talks about the importance of reps.

- Robert Schiller on behavioral economics.

- Lane Kiffin takes a page from the Floyd Mayweather school of recruiting.

- Poker’s future.
