For sports humor, it's Deadspin.
For actual sports info, it's FootballOutsiders and BaseballProspectus.
For a listing of activities for the achingly hip in Boston, lemmingtrail.

For a website that lives up to its name there is damninteresting.com

These are a few of my favorite things:
www.boingboing.net and http://www.neatorama.com - Internet Ephemera

http://www.cityofsound.com/ - Great architecture and urban planning blog

http://www.slashfilm.com - One of the best film news sites

http://www.firejoemorgan.com/ - Maybe the funniest baseball blog out there (cowritten by one of the writers from The Office)

http://www.worldchanging.com/ - An excellent blog to accompany an excellent book

http://www.thingsmagazine.net/ - A fun meta(?)blog that links to recent news and other blogs regarding architecture, design and, well, everything

http://www.tigerstadium.org/home.html This makes me almost shed a tear. Its going to be a complete shame if this is torn down. I can't believe MLB doesn't at least help someway. This is irreplacable. I wish I had some substantial change to donate to this.

Maybe the wrecking ball will miss and knock the city down instead.

Didn't know where else to put it, but google is celebrating Walter Gropius' 125 birthday by changing their "Google" graphic to some modern style buildings (conveniently placed to spell out "google") in his honor. Most of you probably know he was a pioneer of modern architecture, founder of Bauhaus, and designed the JFK Building in Boston (among many other things). No link necessary, I'm sure everyone can find google.

*Edit- A picture of Gropius' Lincoln, MA home for the hell of it- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:W...Lincoln_MA.jpg

But it has been demolished, unlike the others on that list.

Gone but not forgotten -- look at what Steven Holl's doing in Beijing.

And to stay on topic, if you have a taste for the post-apocalyptic, allow me to introduce Elena and her motorcycle.
