Some of my favorite places on the internet 

Sports

Oakland Athletics - Zero splash hits, FOUR World Championships, their official site

Athletics Nation - An unapologetically biased A's fan site, go A's!

San Jose Sharks - Official site

San Francisco 49ers - Niners Super Bowl Rings 5, Oakland/LA TRAITORS Rings 3, ah ha! Official site

49ers Paradise - A place any 49ers fan can call home

Golden State Warriors - Official Site

Warriors World - Bandwagon fans welcome

TSN - Canada's version of ESPN offers a more in-depth view of the NHL than most American-based sites 

 

Photo Sharing

Picasa Web Albums - The vast majority of my personal photos are available here for your viewing pleasure

Flickr - Now the property of Yahoo!  Their Yahoo! Photos will be going away in favor of this popular site

Snapfish - HPs photo sharing site.  Unlimited storage. Order prints directly to your mailbox for just 12¢each.

Social Networking

MySpace -  The 900 lb. gorilla of social networking

Friendster - An old standby, still used by many

Yahoo! 360 - Slightly more intuitive than MySpace, but not as fun

Classmates - Surprisingly large database, a great site for reconnecting with old school chums

Bebo

Geni - Designed primarily for family networking, features include a do-it-yourself family tree so intuitive and user-friendly even your mom can use it!  Great photo sharing as well.  

 Pop Culture

Howard Stern - The King of All Media's Official Site

Mark's Friggin' - The most complete collection of Howard Stern show archives, links, and contacts

Cirque du Soleil - Official site.  Originally described to me as 'circus without animals'.  Waaaaaay off the mark.  Elements of theatre, ballet, rock concert, freak show, and opera are beautifully combined in this 'circus of the sun'.  You won't regret laying out $75+ per ticket to see this.  Honestly.

Joel Osteen Ministries - Houston-based non-denominational Christian preacher.  He ain't about fire & brimstone and 'thall shalt nots', he's all about faith and positivity.  Enlightening and inspirational.

Urban Dictionary - Ever wonder about the definition of terms like 'mac daddy', 'dick flick', and 'MILF'?  No?  Well, if you ever do, just look here.
